Packers Have Slots Of Receivers

The Packers have six experienced wide receivers, but only two – Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams – are best suited to line up outside. The other four fit better inside. And while that’s no great revelation in regard to Randall Cobb and Jared Abbrederis, it might come as a surprise in regard to Jeff Janis

Physicals Today, Practice Tomorrow

Ninety players will arrive at training camp on Monday, but it remains to be seen how many will actually be practicing on Tuesday. Based on the offseason, the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list could be pretty crowded to begin the summer. Wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Ty Montgomery, tight end Jared Cook, offensive linemen

Six Is Enough At Wide Receiver

The Packers currently have 6 veteran wide receivers and a fifth-round draft pick on the roster, so a popular question these days is whether all 7 will begin next season as part of the final 53? But in reality, a more pertinent question – at least based on the players involved – is whether that will even be a legitimate option?

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

Packers Playing Small Ball

Aaron Rodgers has one of the strongest arms in the NFL, but without Pro Bowl wide receiver Jordy Nelson, the passing game has been drinking and dunking its way down the field through two games. Of the 51 aimed passes thrown by No. 12 against the Bears and the Seahawks, only 10% traveled more than 20

Backups Save The Day

The Packers played the defending NFC champion Seahawks without three of their best players on offense and two starters on defense. And while quarterback Aaron Rodgers was brilliant as usual, Green Bay wouldn’t have won without big efforts from four backups. The Packers needed to move the ball effectively on the ground in order to slow

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

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
