Barnett Could Wind Up In San Diego

Nick Barnett

We’ve talked about the possibility of Nick Barnett being the odd man out at linebacker for the Green Bay Packers and one place he could potentially end up is in San Diego, where the Chargers are in a state of flux at the position. The Packers are set on the inside with Desmond Bishop and A.J. Hawk, both of whom signed new contracts with the team in the past year.

20 Questions With Sam Farmer

Sam Farmer

We’re dropping some real football knowledge this morning, courtesy of the Los Angeles Times’ NFL writer, Sam Farmer.

In addition to being all over the lockout, […]

Best Quarterbacks In NFL History: Green Bay Packers

Brett Favre

Certainly, this is another subjective list, but it’s hard to argue with the Green Bay Packers as the franchise with the best quarterbacks in NFL history. The important thing to note here is quarterbacks is plural, so this isn’t a Johnny Unitas vs. Joe Montana argument. NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek recently took a look at every NFL […]

Things That Don’t Happen Often As Important As Those That Do

Larry English

Prior to the 2009 NFL Draft, there were a lot of whispers the Green Bay Packers were interested in outside linebacker Larry English of Northern Illinois.

Ayers Says You Can Take His 40 Time And Shove It

Akeem Ayers

You’ve probably heard the name of UCLA linebacker Akeem Ayers by now. We’ve talked about him as a possibility for the Green Bay Packers at No. 32. Well, Ayers would probably be gone well before the Packers choose in the first round of the NFL Draft if his 40 times were a little better. Ayers […]

How Many Tight Ends Are Better Than Jermichael Finley?

Jermichael Finley

Nine, according to ESPN. ESPN released their tight end power rankings this week and Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley finished 10th.

Packers At Bottom Of Special Teams Rankings Again

Shawn Slocum

The Green Bay Packers are near the bottom of the Dallas Morning News’ annual special teams rankings for the third year in a row. They finished 29th, up two spots from last season.

It’s Time Aaron Rodgers Entered The MVP Conversation

Aaron Rodgers

It would be a lot easier to make this argument if the Green Bay Packers had beaten the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, but it’s nonetheless time Aaron Rodgers entered the MVP conversation. Rodgers has been nothing short of spectacular over the Packers’ last three games. In fact, he’s carried a Packers offense that has little-to-no […]

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 […]

WhatIfSports: Packers Win Super Bowl XLV

We’ve talked about the importance, or lack there of, of preseason predictions. However, WhatIfSports.com is a little bit different and little bit more intriguing. The site uses a computer to generate the results for each NFL game of the season based on player stats. Of course, they’re using 2009 season stats for their projections at […]

Justin Harrell Will Never Be The Biggest Bust In The 2007 Draft

Justin Harrell

No, that honor will go to No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell, who was dumped by the Oakland Raiders after three seasons and will go down as one of the all-time great busts. Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Just Harrell is in the next group, though. Harrell is one of nine of the 32 players […]

The Thing About Preseason Predictions

Is they don’t mean anything. Sure, the Green Bay Packers are the preseason darling of many — the fashionable Super Bowl choice, if you will. What does that get the Packers? High expectations. Granted, there’s no reason this year’s version of the Packers shouldn’t have high expectations entering the season, but it’s July 1. No […]

Looking At The Packers As Preseason Favorite

Brad Jones

You hear a lot more about the idea in the national media than you do in the local media, that of the Green Bay Packers as a preseason favorite. Peter King ranked the Packers atop his preseason power rankings. Pro Football Weekly and Yahoo! Sports will declare the Packers their Super Bowl favorite in their […]

Mandarich Could Move Down List Of All-Time Busts

Tony Mandarich

When talk turns to the biggest busts of all time in the NFL Draft, the name Tony Mandarich always comes up. The Green Bay Packers drafted Mandarich second overall in the 1989 draft, choosing him ahead of such all-time greats as Barry Sanders, Derrick Thomas and Deion Sanders. While those three guys went on to […]

More Tomlinson To Green Bay Rumors, But Sproles Is Now Free

After LaDainian Tomlinson was released by the San Diego Chargers there was immediately Internet speculation about him joining the Green Bay Packers. Subsequently, we told you why that makes no sense, but that didn’t stop none other than the San Diego Union Tribune’s Chris Jenkins from bringing up Green Bay as a potential destination for […]

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 […]
