TEAMS: Green Bay Packers

Honestly, I've never seen a safety on a kickoff return but Green Bay's Pat Lee showed us that it possible to get one.

After a Jason Hanson kick, Lee started to go out of the end-zone and then suddenly back-tracked into the end-zone to earn the dubious honor:


Clifton will start over Newhouse going forward

GREEN BAY, Wis. There is no debate heading into the playoffs for Packers coach Mike McCarthy when it comes to whether Chad Clifton or Marshall Newhouse will be protecting the blind side of Aaron Rodgers."Chad Clifton will be the starter," McCarthy announced Monday morning.

Disproving a popular theory, members of the Green Bay Packers defense can tackle. Case in point: Linebacker Brad Jones taking down a fan that ran on the field during Sunday's victory over the Detroit Lions. The 15-year-old ran across the field before being taken down by Jones. Amateur video captured the scene: That's some good work, Lambeau security. Let the kid run unimpeded...
