Marshawn Lynch Will Not Be Joining The Packers

The Seattle Seahawks completed a deal to acquire Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch for a fourth-round pick in 2011 and a conditional pick in 2012, today. The Packers seemed to be the obvious destination for Lynch since Ryan Grant went down with a season-ending injury in week one and much speculation and rumor followed, […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Bills

Steffen: The Vegas oddsmakers have the Green Bay Packers favored by how much again? 13.5 points?  There are plenty of folks out there who’d tell you that isn’t nearly enough. Don’t count me among them. Like last week, this game will be much closer than it needs to be. Obviously, the biggest question mark for […]

Let The Marshawn Lynch Speculation Begin… And End

When the Green Bay Packers lost running back Ryan Grant to an ankle injury, there were more than a few questions and suggestions focused on who the team could trade for. Thus far, the Packers have remained true to form by sticking with backup Brandon Jackson and grabbing some nobody off the Atlanta Falcons practice […]

Grant’s Injury Isn’t The End Of The Line

The Green Bay Packers aren’t as strong as they were now that running back Ryan Grant has been put on injured reserve, but it isn’t time to throw in the towel just yet. Grant may not have run for 1,200 yards in each of the past two season by accident, but the Packers have always […]

Ryan Grant Out For The Year

Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant is out for the season and will go on injured reserve after tearing two ligaments in his ankle during the Packers victory over the Philadelphia Eagles — a story first reported by Jay Glazer. The injury will require surgery and Grant is expected to be on crutches for […]

Ryan Grant Could Be Out Several Weeks

Ryan Grant

We don’t have a definitive answer yet, but Green Bay Packers starting running back Ryan Grant looks like he’ll be out several weeks with an ankle injury coach Mike McCarthy called significant. Grant, who termed his status as week-to-week, has already been ruled out of the Packers next game against Buffalo. Brandon Jackson will start […]

Packers Not Exactly Dominant In Season-Opening Win

Kevin Kolb

Maybe it’s time to table the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl talk for a bit. The defense, led by linebacker Clay Matthews, was the biggest reason the Packers were able to escape Philadelphia with a 27-20 win over the Eagles. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense wasn’t close to firing on all cylinders, but […]

Packers Offense Could Join A Select Few

The Green Bay Packers offense looks like a juggernaut going into the 2010 season. The possibilities of this season got me thinking about some of the greatest individual seasons by teammates in NFL history. The Packers had two 1,000-yard receivers, a 1,000-yard rusher and a 4,000-yard passer in 2009. Those numbers came courtesy of Greg […]

Training Camp Observations, August 3, Evening, Full Pads

The weather man was wrong. It’s sunny and 85 degrees about an hour before practice. Quick observations: – There is a lot of talk here in Green Bay on the Brett Favre retirement. My thoughts — he stays retired until September 9th when, while mowing the lawn, he decides to drive the lawnmower to the […]

Is Westbrook Still An Option In Green Bay?

Earlier in the offseason, the Green Bay Packers expressed interest in free agent running back Brian Westbrook. The former Philadelphia Eagles star has had injury problems his entire career and missed eight games with concussions in 2009, but when healthy, Westbrook has been a force, twice rushing for 1,200 yards. Now 30, Westbrook appears near […]

Ahman Green Goes Back To Nebraska

As was expected, former Green Bay Packers’ running back Ahman Green signed with the UFL’s Omaha Nighthawks, today. Green grew up in Omaha and played collegiately at the University of Nebraska. “I can not wait to put on a Nighthawks uniform,” Green said. “Doing what I do best in the town where I grew up […]

Marshawn Lynch Could Be On Packers’ Radar

If you read my previous post today, you know what I think the chances are of the Green Bay Packers actually making a move of consequence this offseason. Still, it would be remiss of me not to mention the possibility of the Buffalo Bills’ Marshawn Lynch joining the Packers. Bob McGinn did just that over […]

Packers Looking At Brian Westbrook

Brian Westbrook

A day after we told you the Green Bay Packers were looking at running backs in the early rounds of the draft, it looks like they’ve expanded that search to the free agent scrap heap as well. Greg Bedard reported today, the Packers are kicking the tires on former Philadelphia Eagles’ starter Brian Westbrook. Though […]

Packers Looking At Running Backs

The Green Bay Packers have a clear-cut starting running back in Ryan Grant and they have several more pressing needs to fill, but word is, the team may consider picking a running back high in this year’s NFL draft. Dan Arkush says the main reason is one we discussed previously – the lack of any […]

Packers Have Faith In Jackson, But It’s Unclear Why

Brandon Jackson

No one will probably ever use the term dynamic to describe the Green Bay Packers’ running game under Mike McCarthy. Ryan Grant is solid, but unspectacular. His backups have been a collection of nondescript guys who typically don’t see much time on the field and that goes for the Packers’ No. 2 runner Brandon Jackson, […]

Tracking the Packers Draft Prospects

C.J. Spiller

The mock drafts are beginning to pile up and while most of them don’t catch our attention, there are a few people we pay attention to because they put way too much time into analyzing the NFL Draft. Two of those people are ESPN’s Mel Kiper and Todd McShay, who released their latest mock drafts […]

Tomlinson To Packers – Why It Makes No Sense

LaDainian Tomlinson

You don’t have to be a San Deigo Chargers’ fan to be a fan of LaDainian Tomlinson. The guy is not only likable, but he’s been one of the best players in the NFL since 2001. If you’re a fan of the Green Bay Packers, you’ve probably had at least a fleeting visage of Tomlinson […]

Ahman Green Expects To Be Back, But He May Be the Only One

Ahman Green

Ahman Green broke the Green Bay Packers’ career rushing mark in his half-season stint with the team in 2009, and served as a decent short yardage back and special teams player. Green, who at 32 is ancient for an NFL running back, will be an unrestricted free agent when the league year opens on March […]

Round One: Packers…Doesn’t Mean Much Though

The Wizard of Green Bay teleported himself down to Glendale, Ariz., for Sundays game.

It’s hard to take too much away from the Green Bay Packers’ 33-7 drumming of the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. It was a dominating performance, but Arizona rested most of its starters and coach Ken Whisenhunt played it safe, not showing much of what he will do when the two teams meet again next week […]

The Packers Pro Bowl Snubs

Clay Matthews

Every year there are guys who get elected to the Pro Bowl who don’t deserve to be there. Every year there are guys who are more deserving who get left off the squad. The Green Bay Packers have three deserving Pro Bowlers in Aaron Rodgers, Charles Woodson and Nick Collins, but they also have two […]
