2011 Packers Yearbook: Most Frustrating Player
(Be sure to place your vote in the poll below.)
Adam: Tramon Williams. It was very frustrating watching Williams go from a top-tier CB to a complete mess. Hopefully a better pass rush and a fully-healed shoulder gets him back on track in 2012.
Al: So many candidates… I’ll stay away from the obvious choice (cough… Finley… cough…) and go with Charlie Peprah. The Packers won a Super Bowl with Charlie Peprah at safety. Last season, he was a disaster. Made mistake after mistake and gave up one big play after another. Obviously, without Nick Collins around for guidance, he was just lost back there…
Chad: Jermichael Finley, hands down. (Pun intended.) This year we saw the drops bug move from James Jones to Finley, and boy was it frustrating to watch. Finley is a dominant player and such a threat to defenses that seeing him consistently drop passes was gut-wrenching. Here’s hoping this problem goes away with a fresh year and a fresh contract.

Not gonna lie, I love those Discount Double-Check commercials. All three of them. I think the Clay Matthews one might be my favorite, just because of how down Rodgers seems with the whole phenomenon and how nonchalant Matthews is when Rodgers questions him. Anyhoo, moving to cards, I picked up three Rodgers Rookies for about the price of a blaster after tax. I was fortunate enough...
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers throws a pass against the New Orleans Saints in last season's opening game.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell came down hard on the New Orleans Saints for paying bounties on opposing players. The punishment:
Indefinite suspension of former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams
One-year suspension of coach Sean Payton
Eight-game suspension of general manager...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Ted Thompson has suddenly become quite active in free agency. Just hours after signing center Jeff Saturday, the Packers have added defensive tackle Daniel Muir.
Muir, 28, played for Green Bay as an undrafted rookie in 2007, appearing in three games and recording four tackles. Muir has spent the past four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, where he started 26...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- As part of the NFL's findings in the "Bounty" case against the New Orleans Saints, the league included that a Saints player was going to be paid 5,000 to take out Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
In the NFL's 2,000-plus word statement on the heavy suspensions levied against the New Orleans organization, one section specifically mentioned a...
GREEN BAY, Wis. After four disappointing seasons in Green Bay, Pat Lee is no longer with the Packers. The 2008 second-round pick signed a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders.
There was no reason for Green Bay to keep Lee around any longer. He was unable to crack the top-four spots on the cornerback depth chart, sitting well below Sam Shields and Jarrett Bush for the nickel and...
What makes Ted Thompson's day so interesting? It's more than just the player he was scouting on Tuesday at Iowa State — though that is incredibly interesting in itself. Plus, the Packers take another look at athletic North Carolina linebacker Zach Brown.
Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that the Green Bay Packers have had recent discussions with OLB Manny Lawson. Green Bay has an obvious need at the outside linebacker position and Lawson is better suited in a 3-4 defense which is evident from his poor sacks totals while in Cincinnati last season. Previous reports have mentioned that the Colts, Browns, Bengals...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- After 10 days of inactivity in free agency, the Green Bay Packers have agreed to sign longtime Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday, according to multiple internet reports. Terms of the contract are not yet known.
Saturday, a 13-year veteran after going undrafted in 1998, has played his entire career with the Colts. Nearly all of those years were spent snapping...

The Green Bay Packers have announced the signing of free agent defensive lineman Daniel Muir. Originally signed by the Packers as an undrafted out of Kent State, Muir had four tackles in a three-game stint in Green Bay during the 2007 season. Muir started 26 of 40 games for the Indianapolis Colts over the 2008-11 seasons, totaling 104 tackles and a share of a quarterback sack. Muir...
Green Bay lost one Pro Bowl center but replaced him with five-time Pro Bowler Jeff Saturday. Saturday was the unsung hero of those Peyton Manning-led offenses and now he'll work with another line-of-scrimmage maestro in Aaron Rodgers.
Every year it's the same damn scenario. The Madden video game franchise barely let's old dogs die (last season to pass) before they start poking Vikings fans' dead, bloated bodies with a river stick, egging us on with how they want to screw the only good things on our team. Last year, they ran a contest to see which NFL player should be on the cover of their video game...
The New Orleans Saints aren't the only team that has been toinvestigated by the NFL for running a "bounty" program.
The league also probed the Green Bay Packers in 2007 for a similar program, although the infractions were on a much smaller scale.
The Times-Picayune of New Orleans reported that Green Bay players offered to pay the team's defensive linemen $500...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Green Bay Packers have signed free agent veteran center Jeff Saturday. We don’t have the specifics of the contract a this time.
Saturday will be 37 years-old by the time the regular begins, I would think he has a year or two left, before he retires.
Saturday was contemplating whether or not he was going to sign with the Titans or possibly...
