Shatter The Backboard:
Although Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk got a lot of criticism as the team’s defense struggled last year, his position coach says he had a good season — sort of.

Packers S M.D. Jennings is one of the new characters in the Packers secondary.
We’ve all sat through a terrible movie before. I’m not talking about a movie where it’s so bad, it’s good. I’m talking about a movie that is just plain bad, even painful.
Watching the Green Bay Packers allow almost 5,000 passing yards last season was like watching a bad movie, for a whopping...
Green Bay Packer linebackers Clay Matthews and rookie Nick Perry have revived the team's defensive spirit. Packers fans are excited and opposing NFL quarterbacks better beware.
I recently had my first fantasy football draft of the 2012 season. While doing mock drafts online are great they can’t fully prepare you for the surprises of a real “live” draft. For one, without any computer rankings in front of them you will see a lot more reaches and surprising picks. Also depending on [...]
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's not often that an undrafted rookie performs so well during training camp and preseason that the final roster cutdown is of little worry. But that was the case with Packers outside linebacker Dezman Moses.
Before leaving Lambeau Field following Green Bay's final preseason game, with roster cuts due less than 24 hours later, Moses already knew he was...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Randall Cobb doesn't want to be a kick returner forever. But for now, getting the ball on special teams is another way for the Packers' speedy second-year receiver to show his versatility and be a threat in multiple ways."Hopefully at some point I've validated myself as a receiver where a younger guy can take over that role at some point,"...
BUY HIM DINNER FIRST
Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings said he tries to stay away from the guys whenever he does the Lambeau Leap because "men get a little grabby."
Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has already indicated that he doesn’t know whether he’ll be back in Green Bay next season since he’ll be a free agent after this season.
Jennings has stated that he is only focused on making plays this season and nothing else.
“My focus is the 49ers and this year and putting myself in position to make plays for our organization and for...

It looks like Alex Green will back up Cedric Benson this week.
This is our first chance to see if the Packers pass rush is truly improved.
It’s here. Finally, it’s here.
The draft? Done. Training camp? Finished. Preseason? Completed.
The dress rehearsals are done and the games that count are upon us. The curtain on the 2012 NFL season has been raised and the march to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans begins in earnest this weekend.
GREEN BAY, Wis. The last time Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers met with the local media, it ended very quickly after fullback John Kuhn shoved a towel full of shaving cream into the NFL MVP's face.
This week went much more smoothly, with Rodgers and his teammates now just four days away from Green Bay's first game of the regular season Sunday at home against the San Francisco...

Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman, Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks form "the best tandem of 3-4 linebackers in the league," quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. Willis and Bowman combined for 235 tackles and Smith and Brooks tallied 21 sacks.
It was no big secret what the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers needed to improve on in the offseason to get back into Super Bowl contention.
The 49ers, who boasted one of the NFL's stingiest defenses last year, appear to have fulfilled their needs by adding playmakers on offense. The Packers still have concerns in their secondary, but somehow found a way to better an...
