Hayward was a candidate for 2012 Defensive Rookie of the Year
Many of us are surely still feeling the sting after how the 2012 Green Bay Packers season ended. It comes with the territory: one of the most successful franchises in all of pro sports, a recent history of winning and the expectations of winning, perennial postseason appearances and a constantly bright future.
It has been suggested that maybe we have become too spoiled and perhaps have forgotten, a bit, how to stop and appreciate what this team does accomplish each year.
In keeping with that spirit, it’s time to take a brief pause from the “what if’s” and “why not’s” and acknowledge a few of the bright spots from this past year’s team.
On Saturday, the NFL held its annual Honors Awards show and announced the winners of such prestigious categories as Most Valuable Player, NFL Offensive/Defensive Rookie of the Year and Comeback Player of the Year, to name a few.
The Green Bay Packers had representation in two categories a

1) Introduction: Packers outside linebacker Erik Walden came into the 2012 training camp with slim odds of staying on the roster. The team had just drafted Nick Perry with their first round pick and Perry would surely get every opportunity to start opposite Clay Matthews. The team also saw undrafted rookie Dezman Moses emerge durin camp and it looked lik Walden...
Packers WR Greg Jennings discussed his future while appearing on “The Finsiders” this week.
Jennings was pretty direct in regards to his interest in playing for the Dolphins and head coach Joe Philbin next season.
“Joe, how you doing. Remember me?” said Jennings.
He added that he has “a great relationship” with Philbin and even referred to him as “one of [his...
Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers reunited on a public stage for the first time since Favre retired following the 2010 NFL season.
The relationship between the two was an interesting one. Rodgers was selected in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers and expected to eventually replace an aging Favre. He sat on the bench for three seasons and finally thought he...
The Green Bay Packers without Donald Driver is like the New England Patriots without Troy Brown.
On Wednesday, Donald Driver will officially announce his retirement in front of fans, coaches, and other members of the Packers family at Lambeau Field.
Before he makes it official, Packers fans like you have the chance to say goodbye to one of the greatest Packers of our generation....
In the years since Brett Favre moved on from Green Bay and eventually retired (with pit stops in New York and Minnesota), it’s been discovered that the relationship between the legendary quarterback and his successor, Aaron Rodgers, was bristly at best.
That’s surely why the NFL put the two former MVPs together to present the AP Comeback Player of the Year award at the NFL Honors...
No one expected these two guys to show up at the same place at the same time -- maybe ever -- but there they were, former Packers quarterback Brett Favre and the player who took his job five years ago, Aaron Rodgers.
Though the two never had a very warm relationship in their three seasons together with the Packers -- and certainly haven't had one since Favre retired, unretired...
Ten Lombardi-era Packers and their coach have been in the Pro Football Hall of Fame for years, but Canton is making room for an 11th, and likely final, Green Bay player from that era.
Linebacker Dave Robinson, who played the first 10 of his 12 NFL seasons with the Packers and was a member of three NFL-champion and two Super Bowl-champion teams, was voted in to the Hall as a senior...

Greg Jennings is going to be a free agent and seems to have a clear interest in joining his former coach, Joe Philbin, in Miami.
To those of us on the outside, the Dolphins and receiver Greg Jennings seem like an obvious match this offseason.
The Dolphins desperately need another top receiver, Jennings has three 1,000-yard seasons, two Pro Bowls and a Super Bowl ring on his resume, he will be a free agent in March, the Packers seem content to let him walk, and the Dolphins coach, Joe Philbin, was his...
Greg Jennings is preparing for free agency this off-season. The almost 30-year old wide receiver has spent his whole career in Green Bay but when news broke that he put his home up for sale, many are assuming his time is up with the Packers.
If it is, the time comes for Jennings to decide where he will want to play next. And at least one destination makes a lot of sense.
You may remember that Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers didn’t end well. There was that whole Aaron Rodgers is the guy-taking-your-job / don’t-let-the-door-hit-you-in-the-ass-on the-way-out / what-do-you-mean-you-aren’t-retiring thing. Saturday, the two former teammates were on stage to present the NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award. They had banter before...

Mr. Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers made a surprise make-up handshake at the NFL honor awards. Well done NFL! That was genius and must watch TV!

Obviously it was 99.9% scripted. But of course the actual words don’t tell the story it’s the body language and everything else that creates the story.
Let’s get to it.
