Jeremy Ross has excellent chance to become Packers returner

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- At the start of training camp, the Green Bay Packers were hoping that someone would perform well enough that Randall Cobb could be removed from special teams return duties.

Green Bay Packers: Offense needs to score points

Randall Cobb (Photo Credit: Jeffrey Phelps/AP) During the first preseason game, the Green Bay Packers first team offense played well, driving the ball down the field against the Arizona Cardinals.  Even though they drove right down the field, that productive series resulted in zero points, after James Starks was stuffed on a fourth and goal at the one yard line.  Once the first...

Packers 53 Man Roster Predicition Update: Preseason Week 1

The first game of the Packers season is in the books.  Even though it was a 17-7* preseason loss to the Arizona Cardinals (yeah, um James Starks scored, watch the replay on NFLN) there were some real positives to take away from that game.  The defense minus Davon House (what the hell Davon) played well.
