Jeff Janis

Better Late Than Never

The Packers offense was far from a juggernaut  in Sunday’s win over Dallas, but it definitely showed signs of life with Mike McCarthy calling plays for the first time since last January. And while it took the head coach way too long to do the right thing, at least he realized his mistake before it

Janis Makes A Statement

On a day when Jeff Janis was arguably the team’s best player, Aaron Rodgers still wouldn’t heap praise upon the second-year wide receiver. When asked if the former Saginaw Valley State star deserved more opportunities on offense, the reigning league MVP said, “I think it’s yet to be determined. We’ll see what Ty’s status is

Who’ll Be The Next Starks?

At this time four years ago, Aaron Rodgers was throwing to Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Donald Driver, Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jermichael Finley. My how things have changed. Going into Sunday’s game against the Chargers at Lambeau Field, the names are Jones, Cobb, Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis and Richard Rodgers. Is it any wonder the

Receivers Have Separation Anxiety

Despite extending plays with his feet all game, Aaron Rodgers struggled to find open targets against a mediocre 49ers secondary. I wanted to wait until I watched the All-22 before assigning blame, but my hunch was that the receivers weren’t creating separation. Well, the coaches’ tape proved that hunch accurate. For much of the game, Randall

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

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. PIT

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 Steelers: 1) Undrafted free agent Alonzo Harris probably played himself off the 53-man roster by dropping a couple of easy passes. The 240-pound former Louisiana-Lafayette star has shown

Receiver Spot Up For Grabs

It’s only mid-August, but the top four wide receivers for the Packers are already etched in stone – Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Davante Adams and Ty Montgomery. Also etched in stone is the eventual cutting of undrafted free agents Javess Blue, Jimmie Hunt, Larry Pinkard and Ed Williams. So that leaves three players fighting for

Barclay Continues To Struggle

Other than Aaron Rodgers throwing 19 passes, Thursday night was a typical first preseason game. It’s hard to judge young players due to the level of competition they’re facing, but I’m going to give it a try. Here’s my review of Green Bay’s 22-11 win over the Patriots: -The Packers better hope David Bakhtiari and

Preview: Packers vs. Patriots

I learned a long time ago to take what players do in the preseason with a gigantic grain of salt. Because teams rarely scheme in August and the best players don’t see much action – and even when they’re on the field they’re not putting forth nearly the same amount of effort – guys like

Time To Rethink Punt Returns

Packers Notes will provide updates from training camp whenever we have a person in attendance, so check back for the latest news. This info was compiled by Robert Tahan. –It’s early so maybe things will change, but for now Micah Hyde and Randall Cobb appear to be the top choices to return punts this season.
