Dom Capers might just go "Psycho" this year.
There has been some chatter recently about undrafted rookie Dezman Moses and the eyebrow-raising attention he has received from fellow defensive players. Though yet to put on “the pads,” the Packers linebacker has created quite a stir among fans, who have been desperately waiting for some good news when it comes to the team’s defensive front. One tangent to this story, however, is what it could mean for the “return” of the so-called “Psycho” package.
For those not in the know, the Psycho is a nickel package employed by Dom Capers in Green Bay’s defensive scheme. It is a 1-5-5 formation, meaning there are one defensive lineman, five linebackers, and five defensive backs on the field. The idea is to create confusion among the quarterback, the offensive line, and any backs responsible for picking up the blitz.
By overloading the line and creating some pre-snap movement, the defense makes it hard for the offense to set their protect...

The Green Bay Packers lit up the scoreboard last season, leading the NFL with 560 total points scored. Many of those points came through the air, with QB Aaron Rodgers tossing 45 touchdowns last season. Looking at the Packers 2012 offense, one thing does stand out, the lack of depth at the running back position. The team will start the season with James Starks as the team’s starting...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Long hair in the NFL is not uncommon. Despite the fact a player's lengthy locks can legally be pulled on or grabbed by an opponent and that they can frequently get stuck in a helmet, shoulder pads or other equipment, there are still several examples of long hair on every team across the league.
However, the NFL may have a new champion in the fantastic follicles...
A lot of players in the NFL like to rock the long hair look — particularly defenders. While offensive players are welcome to sport it as well, it’s a little more risky since it is part of the uniform and something defenders can grab onto to bring them down. Oftentimes we will see a running back get taken down by his dreads and wonder why he doesn’t just get a haircut. As Packers...
A trip to Green Bay to watch the Green Bay Packers get tuned up for a new season has more to offer than just scrimmages. Once at Lambeau Field you will discover tours of the field and visits to the Packer Hall of Fame. If your child has brought their bike along they might just be lucky enough to take part in the bike riding by a player to practice.
During a visit to Green Bay...

According to Brad Biggs of the National Football Post, Johnny Jolly has applied for reinstatement by the NFL. Jolly told Biggs he's been sober for 8 months. Jolly, formerly with the Packers, was arrested for possession of codeine, a painkiller Jolly says he was addicted to. Jolly, now 29 years old, believes he's ready to re-enter the NFL, but should he?
For my short answer...
James Jones Apparently Wants to Stay in Green Bay. Just would like the ball a little more.
Aaron Rodgers torched the NFL last season. On his way to 15 wins, Rodgers did whatever he wanted to opposing defenses. When given time, he picked secondaries apart. When faced with pressure, he easily galloped for a first down. And if he wanted to kick field goals, he probably would...
