Is Packers CB Micah Hyde pushing WR Jeremy Ross out of a roster spot?
Green Bay Packers rookie cornerback Micah Hyde and second-year wide receiver Jeremy Ross could be battling for the same roster spot, despite holding two different positions on two different units. The one thing they do have in common, however, is that they’re both getting looks as punt returners on special teams. In fact, according to JSOnline’s Wednesday camp report, both Hyde and Ross will be returning “most if not all the punts against Seattle.”
Micah Hyde has been making a lot of splashes this preseason. He has taken full advantage of the injuries to Tramon Williams and Casey Hayward by making the most of his reps during practice and exhibition games. While he has a couple things to refine in coverage, he has shown great things as a blitzing defensive back. Overall, his praise has been well-earned. ProFootballFocus.com (PFF) even highlighted his performance against the St. Louis Rams last week: “Leading that g...

The Green Bay Packers drafted two running backs in last April’s draft in Eddie Lacy and Jonathan Franklin. Unfortunately for James Starks, Alex Green, and DeJaun Harris, all running backs previously on the Packers’ roster, there could be one or two odd men out before the start of the regular season.
One of the heroes of the 2010 Packer Super Bowl run, Starks is the longest-tenured...
Green Bay Packers 2011 first round pick Derek Sherrod broke both the tibia and fibula in his right leg in a December game and had surgery to repair the injury. He remained on the PUP list through last year’s camp and into the regular season before a short stint in practice which showed he wasn’t ready to return. His brother explained that Sherrod’s leg couldn’t hold his...
Packers back up quarterback Vince Young put up some strong numbers during Friday night’s preseason game.
Young finished with 41 yards passing on six of seven completions and ran the ball three times for 39 yards.
Through three preseason appearances, V.Y. is 12-of-19 passing (63.2 percent) for 74 yards, the touchdown, and no turnovers. He’s still got some juice in his legs with...
You know the NFL is getting soft when you have a kicker open up about it, and say something. David Buehler of the Dallas Cowboys came out back in 2011 stating he felt the NFL was getting soft and he wasn’t lying. “I think they’re changing the rules too much,” Buehler said on the Ben and […]
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Terrell Manning didn't think he did anything wrong. After delivering a hit on Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Brady Quinn in Friday night's preseason game, the Green Bay Packers' second-year linebacker saw the flag on the field and still didn't think it was a penalty on him.
Roughing the passer was the call. Manning apologized to his teammates...
Because they are so young and there is so much depth, predicting the breakout players on the Packers is harder than most teams. But i'll still give it a go: (Does that sound British?)1. OLB, Nick PerryPerry is the common pick to be the Packers breakout player in 2013. Most people would describe Perry as a freak of nature, and that fits him best. The 2012 first round pick is...
Mike Neal is taking snaps at both defensive end and outside linebacker this summer The coaches can say whatever they want, but it’s pretty obvious that Mike Neal is taking snaps at outside linebacker because he didn’t get the job done at defensive end last season. Despite being built like The Incredible Hulk, the former Purdue star got pushed around more often than a middle school...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Vince Young still feels way behind the rest of the Green Bay Packers' quarterbacks. Less than three weeks after joining the team, that's understandable. But after Young's performance in Friday night's preseason game, he could be the Packers' new No. 2 option.
Midway through the third quarter against the Seattle Seahawks, Young entered the game...
Week three of the NFL preseason is widely regarded as a “dress rehearsal” for the start of the regular season. The starters for each team usually play at least one half of each game in preparation for week one.
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers broke this trend, however, when Rodgers played only a single series against the Seahawks, going 4-7 for 41 yards and leading Green Bay on...
Veteran placekicker Mason Crosby has been inconsistent in training camp
Enough is enough. The Green Bay Packers have given Mason Crosby every chance in the world to show that last season’s abysmal performance was an aberration, but the beleaguered kicker simply hasn’t taken advantage of the opportunity. Three more misses in Wednesday’s practice should prove once and for all...
Aaron Rodgers played just one series and Graham Harrell couldn't move the team, but Vince Young provided an immediate spark with his legs on the Packers' only touchdown drive of the night in a 17-10 loss to Seattle.
Vince Young never really panned out as a NFL QB, even though he has a pretty good winning %. He is just not a very good passer and is nothing more than a 3rd stringer at this point. See the GIF below showing off his accuracy:

Aaron Rodgers Is The King of the Photobomb (Video)
Compared to past preseasons, Aaron Rodgers has barely worked up a sweat in the three exhibitions. It's an interesting dichotomy, with Mike McCarthy wanting the offense to play with more rhythm than it did to start last season but the starting quarterback getting just five series.
In their first meeting since the infamous "Fail Mary"game last September, the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks will meet Friday night in Lambeau Field. That "loss" in the regular season -- with replacement referees (one in particular) making mind-numbingly dumb calls -- had implications for both teams in the playoffs. Replays clearly showed that Packers...
