Return Game Outlook: Hazy

Will Blackmon

Green Bay Packers training camp is pretty boring if you’re looking for real competition.

Not terribly exciting stuff. So, if […]

Expect Matthews To Rush From Just About Everywhere

It’s become apparent that Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews will be coming at quarterbacks from places other than just his customary spot at right outside linebacker.
