Damarious Randall

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

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. JAX

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 Jaguars: 1) Damarious Randall was the Packers’ best player on Sunday. The former No. 1 pick from Arizona State was terrific in coverage and more than adequate against

Best Moves Of 2015

Now that another Packers’ season has come to an end, it’s once again time to look back at the best moves made by GM Ted Thompson in the past calendar year. 1) SIGNING JAMES JONES – Bringing back the veteran wide receiver may have seemed like a no-brainer, but hey, you’d be surprised by how many

Secondary To None

The biggest tests are still to come, but after five games no secondary is playing any better than Green Bay’s. And that’s without safety Morgan Burnett – arguably the team’s best defensive back a year ago – for four of those contests. While improved communication has certainly played a part in the high level of
