Veteran Receiver Needed ASAP

General manager Ted Thompson almost never looks outside the organization to fill a hole on the roster, but he’s going to have to add a veteran wide receiver. That should’ve been obvious even before Randall Cobb left Saturday night’s game with a shoulder injury. With Jordy Nelson out for the season, the offense needs someone

So-So Summer For Hayward

I spent all offseason writing about how the Packers wouldn’t miss longtime starting corner Tramon Williams, who signed with Cleveland as a free agent, because Casey Hayward was more than capable of replacing him. Five weeks into camp, I’m no longer quite so confident. Simply put, the No. 29 I saw running around the practice

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. PHI

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 14 additional thoughts from yesterday’s game against the Eagles: 1) Brett Hundley didn’t play as well as his gaudy numbers would suggest, but all things considered, it was a good night for the rookie quarterback. The

Barrington Not Worth A Dime

There are plenty of things Sam Barrington does well on a football field, but covering receivers isn’t one of them. And yet he’s probably going to be the dime linebacker to start the season. What does that mean? More than likely it means a lot of backs and tight ends will be running free through

Preview: Packers vs. Eagles

The Packers must be down to 75 players by Tuesday, so tonight’s game is the last chance for quite a few long shots to show they deserve to stick around for at least another week. Here are 13 players who could be fighting for their NFL lives in a few hours: JAVESS BLUE – The

Packers Most Overpaid Player

It’s not a big deal since the Packers are still nearly $16 million under the salary cap, but it’s clear a month into training camp that fourth-year safety Sean Richardson is the most overpaid player on the team. The former Vanderbilt star will make more money in 2015 than all but a dozen players on

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

Counting Down To 53

Unlike many others, I decided to predict the final 53-man roster after I actually had a chance to watch the players in practices and games (imagine that). So here it goes: QUARTERBACK (3) – Aaron Rodgers, Scott Tolzien and Brett Hundley In my mind there was never any question as to whether the Packers would

Neal Hoping To Catch On To 53

Undrafted rookies John Crockett and especially Alonzo Harris have had their share of moments during training camp, but the competition for the No. 3 running back job should’ve ended during practice on August 15. That’s when Rajion Neal made like a wide receiver and hauled in a 55-yard pass from quarterback Matt Blanchard. Yes, it

Help Wanted Needed At Tackle

I understand that general manager Ted Thompson picks the best available player, but he needed to make sure the best available player at some point in either of the past two drafts was a tackle. By ignoring that position since 2013, the Packers now find themselves without a legitimate backup to starters David Bakhtiari and
