With the Green Bay Packers having already played this week, this is normally where you'd find Game Balls & Lame Calls so I get to ad lib this one. We find ourselves near the mid-season mark with seven weeks of play and six games in for the Packers. 4-2 isn't the worst spot to be in and with the Minnesota Vikings finally dropping a game this week, the race for the NFC North...

The Green Bay Packers found themselves high and dry at the running back position and turned to second year wideout Ty Montgomery to help fill the void in the backfield on Thursday night against the Bears. Montgomery lined up in the spread offense over 40 times while rushing for 60 yards and hauling in 10 passes for 66 yards. The speedy pass catcher says it’s his job to go where...
Green Bay may have a chance to get their preferred third-string QB back after all. Nine days ago, the Green Bay Packers released quarterback Joe Callahan from the 53-man roster. With injuries aplenty and two players coming off suspension before the team’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, the Packers needed a roster spot and Callahan - the third quarterback on the roster - was deemed...

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Get used to seeing wide receivers in the backfield for the Green Bay Packers, at least while they wait for their injured running backs to return. The Packers already used the look at times as a wrinkle with Randall Cobb and Ty Montgomery. They leaned on the scheme heavily in the 26-10 win on Thursday night over the Chicago Bears.

The Packers had two running backs making their team debuts, but neither one made an impact as receivers got the workload instead. On Thursday night, the Green Bay Packers used three, four, and five wide receivers extensively as they defeated the Chicago Bears 26-10. However, the way in which they did so was very different than in the past - a key component to the offense was the...

Ross will provide a few observations every Monday afternoon following a Packers game based on a few viewings of the condensed version of the game on NFL GamePass. While this might not be the All-22 camera deep dive that might be more "educational", it should provide a conversation point for the rest of the week. I was right about Davante Adams. You (probably) were not. What a...

Jordy Nelson had yet another uninspiring performance in the Green Bay Packers’ win over the Chicago Bears Thursday night, and the team is reportedly starting to get concerned about the star wideout. A Packers source told Jason Cole of Bleacher Report that Nelson is having a difficult time regaining his explosiveness after he missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL. The source said...
Aaron Rodgers was just coming off leading the Green Bay Packers to a convincing 26-10 victory Thursday night over the Chicago Bears when he dazzled onlookers with a fantastic homage to a movie character known simply as “The Dude.” That’s right, Rodgers stepped to the podium rocking the cardigan sported by “The Dude” in the Coen brothers classic film, “The Big Lebowski...
Early in the second quarter on Thursday night, Chicago Bears quarterback Brian Hoyer went down hard after being sandwiched between two Green Bay Packers defenders. He left the game as soon as he was able, heading straight into the locker room while making sure not to move his left arm. Bears QB Brian Hoyer just walked to locker room, making sure not to move left arm. Looks like...
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy blames the newest collective bargaining agreement from 2011 for the increase in injuries in the league due to less practices. He was quoted by NFL.com’s Mike Garafolo: “I think it’s clearly a reflection of the training part of it. People don’t want to hear coaches say that, but how can you not be in tune to the fact you have...

The Green Bay Packers will likely start Thursday night’s game against the Chicago Bears with a receiver at running back behind Aaron Rodgers. With Eddie Lacy (ankle) and James Starks (knee) already ruled out, and Knile Davis still learning the offense after a Tuesday trade to Green Bay, the Packers are now in a position where Ty Montgomery—a receiver who played a significant...
If any game before Halloween can be described as a must-win, tonight’s battle against the 1-5 Bears at Lambeau Field fits the criteria. Minus their top running back, top corner and franchise quarterback (I have no idea who’s wearing No. 12 these days), it’s difficult to imagine the Packers getting to the postseason without a victory tonight. Heck, they might not get there...
