Green Bay Packers: 3 takeaways from the season’s first half

Julius Peppers The Green Bay Packers’ bye week could not have come at a better time.  Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is nursing a hamstring injury he suffered last week against the New Orleans Saints.  In that game against the Saints, the Packers were tied at halftime, but fell apart after Rodgers’ injury and lost 44-23.  After a tough game like that, a week off gives a team time...

Brady Poppinga: Packers’ Loss To Saints Not Mike McCarthy’s Best Day

The Green Bay Packers had a bad day at the office Sunday. The Packers fell to the New Orleans Saints 44-23 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Saints’ offense finally looked in sync after being up and down for most of the season, but Green Bay’s decision-making really opened the door for New Orleans’ convincing win. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was very aggressive early...

New list rips Green Bay Packers fans owning part of team as one of NFL’s most overhyped things

Yawn. That’s how the sports world collectively responded to Tuesday’s trade deadline in the NFL, a much-anticipated day that wound up generating less than Al Capone’s vault. Aside from a couple of transactions made by the lowly Buccaneers, involving a couple of players that most people had never heard of, the deadline came and went without anyone noticing. Given the hype that...

Green Bay Packers: Is It Time to Stress Out Over 2014 Team?

I have a very special message for Packers Nation. It contains five letters: P – A – N – I – C. When the 2014 NFL schedule came out most realistic Green Bay Packers fans knew Week 8 in New Orleans was likely going to be a hiccup. The Packers have fallen short there in past trips. The Superdome could serve as the Metrodome of the South. Silver linings could be found in Sunday...

Green Bay Packers: 3 flukes or flaws to keep in mind

When any team enters its bye week, there are always questions to be asked. Sometimes those questions have answers, sometimes they don’t. For the Green Bay Packers, the bye week almost arrived without much cause for concern at all.

Packers Stock Report: They are who we thought they were Edition

After eight games and heading into the bye week, the Green Bay Packers are about what we thought they were (cue the Denny Green soundbite). Aaron Rodgers is amazing and does amazing things. When Rodgers get hurt, even if it’s just a silly hamstring pull that he plays through, things go to hell in a hurry. The defense is better, but still not quite where it needs to be. The safety...

Packers Eddie Lacy had a pretty solid game in front of his family last night

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy was looking forward to Sunday night’s homecoming game, because Lacy is a New Orleans native. “I’d like to have one of the biggest games of my life,” Lacy said of the NFL contest in New Orleans against the Saints on NBC at 7:30 p.m.”I could talk to some of […] The post Packers Eddie Lacy had a pretty solid game in front of his...

Aaron Rodgers suffered a hamstring injury in the third quarter of Sunday night’s 44-23 loss to the New Orleans Saints, but the Green Bay Packers quarterback didn’t leave the game. “There weren’t really a lot of options after it (tweaked his hamstring) happened,” Rodgers said. “I could still move around great and lead the offense.

Green Bay Packers Line Up Julius Peppers at WR, Fail

When you are as good as the Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers offense is, apparently you get bored with the wide receivers you have. So what happens when the Green Bay Packers line up Julius Peppers in the slot? Well, it almost worked. Thinking of Julius Peppers at WR is downright frightening. If I am the Chicago Bears, I really hope this didn’t give them any ideas for their...

Week 8 scouting report: Green Bay Packers

At this point I am no longer going to try to predict what we will see from this team from week to week. One minute they look like one of the most dominant teams in the league (56 minutes of Sunday), and then they detonate all that hard work in two awful plays. One was as boneheaded of a play as can happen where Corey White tried to jump a pass and intercept a short out to Golden...

Packers’ 2014 Draft Class Paying Early Dividends

As I sat in the Lambeau Field bleachers and watched the Panthers game, I couldn’t help but to think of how well the 2014 draft class is panning out.  Now there are certainly disappointments.  It’s possible (maybe even likely) that Khyri Thornton Carl Bradford and Demetri Goodson can’t play.  Jared Abbrederis was lost for the season with an ACL injury.  Other than that though...

Randall Cobb Setting Himself Up For Big Money

It’s no coincidence that the Green Bay Packers’ offense has jump started with the return of the electric and explosive Randall Cobb. Green Bay’s offense struggled during their 1-2 start in large part because Cobb was showing rust from his broken leg last season and Aaron Rodgers was locking in on Jordy Nelson too much because he had nobody else he trusted. Now, with Cobb returning...
