Barrington Out For Season

The Packers have placed starting inside linebacker Sam Barrington on injured reserve due to a broken foot suffered in Sunday’s season-opening win over the Chicago Bears. The third-year player from South Florida left the game in the first quarter. Barrington will be replaced by Nate Palmer, who logged 61 snaps in an uneven performance against

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. CHI

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 15 additional thoughts from yesterday’s game against the Bears: 1) Eddie Lacy is a much better runner than a year ago. His patience and vision continue to improve and his impressive one-handed catch in the second quarter

Nobody Does It Better

Aaron Rodgers has certainly won much bigger games and he’s certainly put up much more impressive numbers, but all things considered, the Packers’ all-world quarterback played about as well as he’s ever played in Sunday’s season-opening win over Chicago. Working without star Jordy Nelson and with a clearly hampered Randall Cobb, the reigning league MVP

Preview: Packers vs. Bears

With the Lions and Vikings no longer pushovers, Green Bay has to take advantage of Chicago while they still can. Because it’s only a matter of time before head coach John Fox turns things around in the Windy City. But it won’t happen overnight, and fortunately for the Packers, that’s literally when they open the

Sizing Up The Practice Squad

It’s not easy to go from the practice squad one season to the 53-man roster the next, but wide receiver Myles White and offensive lineman Josh Walker proved it can be done. So of the eight players added to this year’s practice squad on Sunday, which have the best chance of being part of next

High And Lows Of Camp

Now that training camp and the preseason is mercifully over, let’s take a look back at some of the highs and some of the lows from the past six weeks: Biggest surprises (players): Former UCLA star Brett Hundley was the most impressive rookie quarterback I’ve seen in over three decades of following the Packers… Third-round pick

Preview: Packers vs. Saints

In a summer full of pretend games, there’s nothing more phony than the final one. But for players on the fringe of a roster spot, tonight’s contest between Green Bay and New Orleans is as real as it gets. Here are five players whose performance will either keep them on the 53-man roster or relegate

Gerhart’s Quietly Efficient

While all eyes have been focused on Don Barclay’s failings the past two preseason games, another backup offensive lineman has quietly put together a pair of solid performances. Center/guard Garth Gerhart, who played in two games for Green Bay in 2014, is putting up a spirited fight to hold onto his roster spot for another
