The feel-good portion of the Johnny Jolly story ended Sunday when they put the pads on for the first time at Ray Nitschke Field. Jolly has returned to the Green Bay Packers attempting to resurrect his life and his career after three years of suspension imprisonment and drug rehabilitation. Just as Jolly did June 4 after the initial practice back with his old team he was cordial and remorseful speaking with reporters in front of the same locker that was last his during the 2009 season. Jolly had just completed his first workout in pads against National Football League offensive linemen since the wild-card playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals in January 2010. "It was great" said Jolly. "I haven't had contact in three years. Man it's just a blessing." Packers President Mark Murphy general manager Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy placed the organization at some risk by inviting Jolly back. The financial risk — $715000 minimum salary ($383000 if he ...

Eddie Lacy not worried about weight, unflattering picture

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Eddie Lacy saw the picture. Players inside the Green Bay Packers locker room saw it too and made sure to give their rookie running back a hard time about it. Lacy didn't care. Yeah, that particular photo doesn't make the 5-foot-11, 230-pounder look good, but Lacy knows it's not an accurate representation of the condition that he's in. "That...

Mike McCarthy says Eddie Lacy is in shape

On Monday a photo of Packers running back Eddie Lacy went viral.  It looked like the rookie back went on a McDonalds diet and gained 30 pounds over night. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy cleared things up today and said that Lacy is in shape and wouldn’t be playing if he wasn’t. “Going through the conditioning test, he was fine. If we had any concern about any guys they wouldn’t...

Elderly Packers fan rocks her trademark mohawk for team’s annual 5K run (pic)

Micah Hyde Becomes Training Camp’s Week 1 Darling

It only makes sense that in the first practice after I write a piece about how there are 4 corners on the roster (Williams, House, Hayward, Shields) with a legitimate chance to make an impact on the 2013 Green Bay Packers that the darling of training camp is CB Micah Hyde.  It certainly makes sense.  Hyde has rare size for a cornerback (6’1″ 197) and was a playmaker all throughout...

Mike McCarthy Says Eddie Lacy Is Not Out Of Shape

Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy received a ton of scrutiny on Monday when a photo of him catching a pass, while looking extremely chubby surfaced on the web.

Packers glorious past illustrated in new book released today

There are more Green Bay Packers fans in this country than fanatics of any other team. At least that’s what Nebraska Cornhuskers QB Taylor Martinez told me a few days ago. Although I’m not sure what metric he’s using. Or if he’s even right. He says the Huskers are #2 behind the Packers. Sounds believable to me. But I recommend all Packer Backers check out the beautifully...
