Packers smart to sit Aaron Rodgers for rest of preseason

The Green Bay Packers lost their second-best offensive player, Jordy Nelson, to a torn ACL last week. Now, they may be protecting their best offensive player from getting injured in a meaningless preseason game.

Sky’s The Limit For Linsley

I‘ve seen a lot of good centers play for the Packers since becoming a fan in 1978. Larry McCarren, Mike Flanagan and Scott Wells all played in at least one Pro Bowl, but the guy currently hiking the ball has a chance to better than them all. In only his second season, Corey Linsley plays the position like a 10-year veteran. A really good 10-year veteran. Linsley lasted until the...

Packers rookie WR Ty Montgomery taking over for Jordy Nelson

The Green Bay Packers suffered a huge loss on Sunday afternoon when Jordy Nelson went down with a torn ACL.

Eyeless Aaron Rodgers on ‘Madden 16’ is straight-up nightmare fuel (pic)

GAH! Aaron Rodgers is apparently such a phenomenal quarterback he doesn’t even need eyes to survey the field and pick apart defenses.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell notes in a tweet that downloading all the patches will remove...

What Jordy Nelson’s Torn ACL Means For Davante Adams

The news about Jordy Nelson’s knee injury was gut-wrenching. Seeing any player go down with something as frustrating as a torn ACL always is. But, as the NFL mantra goes: Next man up. That same ideal applied to my next gut reaction: The Green Bay Packers — and quarterback Aaron Rodgers — don’t have anyone to replace his production. Randall Cobb and second-year player Davante...

Why the NFL’s preseason needs an overhaul

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson is believed to have torn his ACL Sunday in an exhibition game that was of little value to the veteran. There doesn’t seem to be much anyone can do about non-contact injuries, but just about every team spends the preseason trying to manage playing time of key veterans to reduce injury risk. No one loves preseason games. Even the owners—the...

Tyrod Taylor is key to Buffalo Bills making playoffs

The thought that the Buffalo Bills only need a QB that will manage the game, throw a handful of passes, but primarily hand the ball to a great running back to keep the game close enough that their extraordinary defense can influence the outcome of the game is an elementary thought in today’s NFL. This thought particularly highlights the mediocrity Bills’ fans have witnessed...
