Jermichael Finley Has A Lot Of Reasons To Be Motivated

Jermichael Finley

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is motivated by: A. Another Packers Super Bowl run B. The fact the Packers keep adding tight ends to the roster C. Money D. All of the above I think we all know the answer to the question is D.

Veteran Packers Who Should Be Worried

James Jones

The NFL Draft changes the face of every team’s roster and the Green Bay Packers are no exception, even though they’re the reigning Super Bowl champs. Several veterans will go into training camp to fight for a roster spot, while others will simply be let go during free agency. Here’s a look at which players […]

Preparing For Finley’s Departure? Pack May Add Another Tight End

Jermichael Finley

We all kind of scratched our collective heads when the Green Bay Packers drafted tight end Andrew Quarless in last year’s draft. The team seemed stocked at the position at the time, with Jermichael Finley, Donald Lee and Spencer Havner. The Packers ended up cutting Havner, Lee didn’t perform and Finley got hurt, so it […]

Chillar, Havner Could Miss Extended Time, Lee On The Outs

Brandon Chillar

Not that the news is going to change the season, but the Green Bay Packers are likely to be without linebacker Brandon Chillar and tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner for a while. Chillar aggravated the shoulder injury he suffered earlier in the year on kickoff coverage in the first half of the Packers’ loss to Atlanta. […]

Havner Could Be Back With Packers Soon

The Green Bay Packers worked out tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner on Tuesday and will reportedly sign him soon, according to Scout.com. Havner took a physical for the Packers last week. The continued interest signals that the Packers very likely will re-sign Havner, perhaps as soon as Monday, when the team gathers for its first practice […]

Rodgers Good To Go, Matthews Game-Time Decision

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went through a full practice Friday and has been cleared to start against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Officially, he’s listed as probable on the injury report. “I thought Aaron Rodgers looked fine today at practice,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “From my perspective, I would say he’s ready to […]

Rodgers Cleared, Returns To Practice

Rest easy, Green Bay Packers nation. There’s a good chance quarterback Aaron Rodgers will play against Miami on Sunday. Rodgers, who suffered a concussion against Washington, has been cleared by doctors and returned to practice on a limited basis, Thursday. The quarterback had to be cleared both in house and by an outside specialist. Unless […]

Packers’ Stars May Play Sunday

The Green Bay Packers will be without tight end Jermichael Finley on Sunday, but it looks like their two biggest injured stars have a shot at playing. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a concussion on the final play of the game after a helmet-to-helmet hit, will miss some practice time this week, but hasn’t been […]

Packers’ Road To 53

The Green Bay Packers had to release 22 players today to get to the 53-man roster limit. Perhaps the biggest surprise among those players is safety and return man Will Blackmon. Blackmon has been injured for much of training camp and that certainly didn’t help his chances of making the roster, but he was considered […]

Observations From Packers 59-24 Victory Over Colts

Peyton Manning

The Green Bay Packers offense is potent, we knew that, but in their longest outing of the preseason against last year’s AFC champs, they put any doubts to rest. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who I have a hard time believing isn’t on his way to becoming the best player in the NFL, cut up the Colts […]

The End Of Jarrett Bush?

We’ve been waiting for it for three years, but the end of cornerback Jarrett Bush as a member of the Green Bay Packers appears to be getting closer. As we’ve documented many times, Bush is a liability on defense. What’s kept him on the team thus far is his play on special teams. A few […]

Havner Back At Linebacker

Spencer Havner was a linebacker in college and spent his first couple years in the NFL at the same position before switching to tight end prior to last season. Havner looked like he had found a home at tight end — entering training camp No. 2 on the depth chart — and had carved out […]

A Look At The Packers Depth Chart

The Green Bay Packers have released their first depth chart, which gives us a good idea of who is and who isn’t performing well. It also sheds some light on who is playing where. On the offensive side of the ball there aren’t any big surprises. Most notable is that Donald Lee has regained the […]

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 […]
