Assuming the entire team doesn’t get injured before final cutdown day, here is my Packers 53-man roster prediction for the 2013 season.
Quarterback (2): Rodgers, Young
If Rodgers gets hurt, Young at least has the raw talent to make a few plays and maybe keep the Packers’ heads above water until QB1 gets patched up and returns. I never thought I would write such a sentence when...
With rosters down to just 53 players, there’s bound to be a run on free agents in the coming days. One of the most eligible such players is now Vince Young, who failed to stick with the Green Bay Packers, but this is a quarterback needy league, and Vince Young can still play.
Frankly, it’s strange to see such a talented quarterback with a winning record looking for work. Because...
SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR
When the Packers cut Graham Harrell, it appeared Vince Young had locked up a backup quarterback job. Instead, the team released him.
Vince Young's days with the Packers are apparently over.
The veteran vying for a backup job went on Twitter Saturday to thank Green Bay for giving him an opportunity and wished the team well this season.
Young's apparent departure would leave just B.J. Coleman on the roster to back up Aaron Rodgers. The Packers planned to officially release their roster moves later Saturday...

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers continued his preseason of minimal minutes, this time not playing a single snap in the Packers preseason finale against the Kansas City Chiefs. Like most other teams in their final preseason games, the Packers rested their first stringers, or only allowed them to play one series. With the first stringers...
Just when you think he is safe he sends out this tweet… @VinceYoung: Thanks to the @packers for the opportunity great organization great team wonderful fans good luck this season. This is pretty wild, it looks like the Packers will keep only two quarterbacks on their roster with Aaron Rodgers and BJ Coleman.
B.J. Coleman and Vince Young were sent packing in favor of Seneca Wallace.
If the Green Bay Packers had their way, no one else but Aaron Rodgers would take a snap at quarterback during the regular season except in mop up duty during a blowout victory.
That said, they need some kind of a Plan B behind the 2011 NFL MVP in case of a doomsday scenario in which Rodgers is out for multiple...
While Vince Young's performance in the preseason played a big role in him getting released, general manager Ted Thompson said Sunday there's someone else who also deserves some of the blame.
In the preseason, Young completed only 26 of 49 passes (53.1 percent) with one touchdown, no interceptions and three sacks (71.6 rating) in four preseason appearances.
The Vince Young era in Green Bay ended as abruptly as it began. Young announced the news morning in an almost-readable tweet: Thanks to the @packers for the opportunity great organization great team wonderful fans good luck this season. — Vince Young (@VinceYoung) August 31, 2013 The move did not exactly come as a shock. […]The post B.J. Coleman anointed backup quarterback for...
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.
Finally. The 2013 fantasy football season is here, and that means it’s time to lose our minds over player rankings. The PDW rankings for Week 1 are up and some familiar names like Adrian Peterson, Calvin Johnson, and Aaron Rodgers are topping their respective positional categories as expected. See where your offensive and defensive players […]The post Week 1 Fantasy Football...
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.
Note: Eight players released will be signed to the eight-man practice squad Sunday.

Seneca Wallace is the new backup to Aaron Rodgers…for now.
The game of musical chairs behind Aaron Rodgers continues for the Green Bay Packers.
After the Packers released Vince Young over the weekend, B.J. Coleman became the default backup to Rodgers. The Packers did sign another quarterback in former Wisconsin Badger Scott Tolzien but he has since been placed on the practice...
Seneca Wallace retired, then didn’t retire, got mad at the 49ers and now signed with the team that plays the 49ers Week 1.
Packers signing Seneca Wallace as backup to Aaron Rodgers. They open vs Niners and have two of their QBS – Wallace, Scott Tolzien to prep D.

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...
