Green Bay Packers tight ends coach Jerry Fontenot believes Jermichael Finley is entering this season on much more positive note than he did last year. “He seems like he’s really dialed in. as far as expectations go, I didn’t set any expectations last year, we just wanted to continue to improve each and every week, and that’s the same mentality we’re taking this year – let’s get better, let’s find a starting point and let’s get better each and every week. We’re capable of doing great things,” Fontenot said, via ESPNWisconsin.com. “I think we definitely had a year to grow off of last year and the way we finished off the year, I’m happy with where we’re starting. But again, we have a long ways to go.” There’s no doubt that Finley is a very talented player.  If he can stay focused this season and pick up right where he left off in 2012, he’ll be in for a big year.

Jarrett Boykin trying not to think about his chance to rise up Packers' WR ranks

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- No Greg Jennings. No Donald Driver. It seems like an ideal scenario for a backup wide receiver like Jarrett Boykin to emerge in the Green Bay Packers' high-scoring offense. Boykin doesn't see it that way, though. Not because it isn't, in fact, a great opportunity for the second-year receiver to have a much bigger role this season, but simply because...

Graham Harrell: Green Bay’s Latest QB Project

On September 30, 2012, Graham Harrell played in his first game for the green and gold. Stepping in for Aaron Rodgers was no small task, especially in the red zone of a tight game. The result: a disastrous fumble on his first and only play, not the impression a backup quarterback wants to leave in limited duty. Fortunately, the Packers won the game and the botched play never stuck...
