Damarious Randall

Time To Shake Up Secondary

Everything looked fine in the secondary when Green Bay’s front seven was dominating the Seattle’s woeful offensive line in week 1, but things didn’t go nearly as well in week 2 when the pass rush was much less effective against Atlanta’s solid O-line. Given time, Matt Ryan played pitch and catch with his receivers. Davon

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. DEN

After “studying the tape” (that sounds better than “turning on the computer”), here are the heroes and the zeros from Saturday’s 20-17 preseason loss at Denver: HEROES DAMARIOUS RANDALL – The much-maligned former No. 1 pick started at left corner and played very well. He was more physical than usual and his coverage was excellent.

Q&A: Who’s The Biggest Surprise?

Packers Notes contributor Robert Tanner has been at three practices so far this summer and he was gracious enough to answer some of your burning questions. Who’s been the biggest disappointment and the biggest surprise so far? – Rachel It’s still very early, but Damarious Randall has been the biggest disappointment. The No. 1 pick

Secondary A Primary Concern

You can’t say GM Ted Thompson ignored the cornerback position during the offseason, but unless you’re extremely confident in a player who was released by the woeful Jaguars and a rookie, you really can’t say the position has been upgraded. When a defense plays as poorly against the pass as the 31st-ranked Packers did in

Randall’s Role To Change

Let’s stop with all the nonsense. The decision makers in Green Bay are moving Damarious Randall to the slot cornerback position because they’ve come to the realization he can’t get the job done on the outside. It’s really as simple as that. Here’s what cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt said about the move at last week’s

Corners Are Key To D

The Packers have been a good defensive team exactly two times since Dom Capers took over as coordinator eight years ago. In 2010, the D finished 5th in yards and 2nd in points in a season that ended in the Super Bowl. And in 2014, the D surrendered only 19 points per game in the second half of a season

No Good Options At Corner

I‘ve watched the Packers for over three decades, and I’ve seen a lot of cornerbacks have really bad games. Estus Hood, Ahmad Carroll, Vinnie Clark, Joey Thomas and Pat Lee come to mind immediately. But I can’t remember many worse efforts than the one produced by Damarious Randall against the Cowboys. Let’s hope Randall’s awful performance

Rough Season For Young Corners

Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins have struggled all season, and while it’s obviously too soon to give up on the young cornerbacks, it’s not too soon to be worried. Last year’s top two draft picks have clearly regressed after promising debuts. While Randall has made number of big plays, he’s also been lit up by

Nightmare In Nashville

There was a time when the Green Bay Packers, following a tough loss, would’ve punished a middling team like the Tennessee Titans. But that was quite a while ago. Sunday, the Titans punished the middling Packers after a tough loss of their own. The nightmare in Nashville dropped Green Bay to 4-5. The good news is

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. MIN

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 10 additional thoughts from Sunday’s game against the Vikings: —This was the best game of Jake Ryan‘s brief NFL career. The second-year inside linebacker was strong against the run and effective in coverage. It was hard to know what to
