Jermichael Finley had spinal fusion surgery this week, as he prepares to go through a long and uncertain recovery process to try and play football again next season.
While Finley is confident that he can return to the same form that he was before his injury, there are those who doubt that he'll be able to return to the same shape that he was before the surgery. One notable...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Clay Matthews admitted that he played oneof the worst games of his career Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

But now theGreen Bay Packers' star outside linebacker won't even get paid his full amountfor the game.Matthews was fined 15,750 for roughing the passer inSunday's loss...
The man replacing Aaron Rodgers chooses his words deliberately. He doesn't show emotion. He's serious, direct. You wonder if he bleeds.
Scott Tolzien is, indeed, all business.
Yet this question gives him pause. First, his arms are crossed. Then, he scratches his chin.
"What makes me tick?" Tolzien repeats, pausing again. "I would say just being your own...

Clay Matthews returned last week, but was more ineffective than he would have been otherwise because of the giant club he was wearing to protect his healing thumb.
The good news for Packers fans and Clay is that he's progressed enough over the past week that the Packers will put Clay in a brace for this week's game, and remove the cumbersome cast.
Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Green Bay Packers made DT B.J. Raji a long-term contract offer worth $8 million per season.
According to McGinn, the Packers made the offer “several months” ago.
Apparently, Raji and his agent, David Dunn, aren’t convinced that this is the best deal or they most likely would have already reached an agreement...
It's Armageddon for the Green Bay Packers. If you didn't know that, luckily Jonathan Mann has made a song to remind America.
This week Ol’ Bag of Donuts calm down the Flynn-aholics, as well as talk about the impact this year’s rookie class has made and the ‘greatness’ of the Packers secondary.

Over the past few years it certainly appears the Giants have had the Pack's number.
It seems like in games I feel we should have won, and won relatively easily, for one reason or another, the stars lined up just right for New York.
In a few heartbreaking games, the Giants prevailed and those defeats hurt the...
Last week: 11 (+0)
The Packers just can’t catch a break. Seneca Wallace struggled mightily in relief of an injured Aaron Rodgers against the Bears, completing 11 of 19 for 114 yards and an interception, which makes sense considering he was unprepared. He started out better against Philadelphia, but then got hurt, which led to an even more unprepared Scott Tolzien coming...
With Mike Daniels, Datone Jones is giving the Packers the interior-rushing production they've lacked since Cullen Jenkins left after the 2010 season. Jones, slowed by an ankle injury in training camp, has three sacks in the last two games and might be in line for a bigger role.

Evan Dietrich-Smith has provided a power blocker in the team's vastly improved running game. More than that, his hustle was an unsung key to the up-tempo offense led by Aaron Rodgers. Without Rodgers, Dietrich-Smith and the line will do what they can to make life easier for Scott Tolzien.
