Surviving Sundays with no Packers Football
Well, Packers fans, since the 2013 NFL season starts next Sunday, this is the last Surviving Sunday of the year.
NFL football games that actually matter will be keeping us occupied for the next 20 weeks or so, and there won’t be a need for 800-word posts wrapping up the news of the week and mixing in my ramblings about pro wrestling, video games, concussions, the media or whatever other tangent I like to go off on.
As always, thanks for reading. Hopefully the next Surviving Sunday isn’t published until Feb. 9, 2014, the Sunday after the Packers win Super Bowl XLVIII.
All of the Packers roster cuts are in and there were a few surprises: 1) Vince Young is gone. I thought his ability to run and at least have a chance to make a play every now and then would save him, but I thought wrong. Now who’s going to back up Aaron Rodgers? Your guess is as good as mine. 2. Tyrone Walker didn’t make the team. I suppose that’s not really too big...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Lets face it, the best running back the New York Jets had was quarterback Geno Smith, but with one swift move the Jets updated their backfield claiming Alex Green from the Packers.
The Packers’ leading rusher last season was a third-round selection in 2011 out of Hawaii. Last season he rushed for 464 yards on 135 carries and 125 receiving yards.
Since Mike Goodson continues...
Now that the Green Bay Packers have their starting 53-man roster after making 22 player cuts yesterday, it’s time to see how well the media handled their roster predictions. Obviously, this is just a fun activity to see how close we all were; nevertheless, we can also clearly see who the surprise cuts were. Which players were almost unanimously selected by media members to make...
The New York Jets have claimed former Packers running back Alex Green off of waivers, according to his agent.
@AGreen_20 Congrats on Jets. #newbeginnings

As long as Green can stay healthy, he will be a nice addition for the Jets alongside Chris Ivory.
Green ran for 464 yards on 135 carries last season in Green Bay.

The Green Bay Packers announced the release of 22 players Saturday, trimming the roster to the NFL-mandated 53-man limit. The Packers released: FB Jonathan Amosa T Andrew Datko S David Fulton C Garth Gerhart RB Alex Green T Kevin Hughes WR Charles Johnson C Patrick
The Packers have moved on from running back Alex Green.Fantasy Spin:After Cedric Benson went down last season the Packers handed the running back job to Green and he proceeded to rush for 3.4 yards per carry on 135 carries. The Packers will use James Starks and rookie Johnathan Franklin as backups to Eddie Lacy.
In releasing fullback Jacob Hester to make room for special teamer/linebacker Adrian Robinson Denver Broncos executive John Elway described the weekend's events as a "liquid process."
Players who managed to escape the Turk on Saturday's roster cutdown deadline realize they can't sleep easily with the waiver-wire bonanza coming on Sunday.
The New York Daily...
A handful of thoughts on the New York Jets waiver moves today and where their current 53 man roster sits at.
1. It was mildly surprising to see the Jets add running back Alex Green and then cut ties with Kahlil Bell, considering how strongly Bell finished the pre-season. Green has a bit more upside and was relatively productive in Green Bay last season, despite a poor yards per...
Former Packers making a safe landing
This isn’t an easy weekend for anyone, not the players nor team personnel (See Andrew Brandt’s story on that).
Some players get to ride the roller coaster of emotions by being cut one day and then signed by another team the next. To these Ex-Packers, we simply say, Good Luck (unless you’re playing the Packers).
Here are the guys who have...
The Green Bay Packers finalized their 53-man roster for the 2013 season. Here's a position-by-position breakdown of which players made it and who was cut.

Mike McCarthy enters his eighth season as Green Bay’s head coach
It’s been a blast. Here are my final thoughts on the roster and a prediction on what to expect this season:
-Vince Young brings me back to the 1980s – and not in a listening to Bruce Springsteen for the first time good way. He reminds me of Vince Ferragamo and Jim Zorn, other washed-up quarterbacks who couldn’t...
In an interesting twist of how things usually work, Joe McKnight, formerly of the New York Jets has announced that he has signed with the Green Bay Packers. McKnight has been the backup running back and primary kick returner for the Jets since 2010 after being drafted in the 4th round by New York. Overall he’s logged 9 punts with a 9.9 yard average (long of 25 yards) and 76...
While starters for both teams stayed on the sidelines, the 2nd and 3rd string teams were left to battle it out in this Preseason finale.
With roster cuts due August 31st at 6:00pm, this was the chance for players in the balance to make one final impression and hopefully make the 53-man team. This is very important for the players, but for the fans (myself more specifically), nothing...
As of the designated NFL cutdown time of 5 p.m. today, the Green Bay Packers parted ways with 22 players. Among some of the more notable cuts: QB Vince Young and RB Alex Green.Of more interest to Packer fans is who the team kept on the roster. Here is the roster as of now (subject to ongoing change, of course):QUARTERBACK (2): Aaron Rodgers and B.J. ColemanRUNNING BACK (3): Eddie...
