Packers running back DuJuan Harris
On December 1st, the Packers signed running back DuJuan Harris to the active roster from their practice squad. Since that time, Harris has run the ball 20 times at a 4.4 yd per carry average and has two touchdowns. More importantly, he has shown something we haven’t seen in a Green Bay running back since Ahman Green – patience, vision and the ability to cut and make tacklers miss, while still hitting the hole hard.
First, a brief Bio:
In High School in Florida, Harris ran for 3,000-plus yards and 45 touchdowns, including a single-game record of 363 and five TDs. At the time, he weighed about 160lbs, which combined with his lack of height meant he didn’t get a lot of offers to play college ball.
Harris went to Division 1-A Troy, where he had 540 carries for 2,635 yards and 27 TDs and 79 receptions for 553 yards and five TDs.
Harris was signed as an undrafted free agent by Jacksonville and spent 11 games on the practice squad and 5 games on the activ...

If you haven’t seen this (and since it only has 3000 views on Youtube, I’m guessing you haven’t), it’s one of the best Packers tribute videos you’ll ever view. Dale Decker brings us a finely crafted video made by a Green Bay Packers fan, but one that could easily pass for an NFL Films feature.

The Packers wanted to be the NFC's No. 2 seed in the playoffs and earn a first-round bye. Instead, Green Bay's loss Sunday in Minnesota not only forces the Packers to play next weekend, it also set up a rematch with the Vikings.

Director of Football Operations John Dorsey has been with the Packers since 1984
With so many teams expected to be cleaning house starting tomorrow, it’s very possible the Packers could be on the verge of losing yet another key member of their front office. John Schneider was hired as Seattle’s general manager in 2010 and Reggie McKenzie was named to the same position by Oakland...
Green Bay's leading receiver Randall Cobb has been ruled out of the game at Minnesota because of ankle and knee injuries suffered last week.
Cobb was listed as questionable on the injury report. With the NFC North title already clinched the Packers decided on Sunday to rest Cobb, who doubles as their kick returner. Cobb has 954 yards and eight touchdowns receiving, plus one...
Recent playoff games in Lambeau have not been kind to Packers fans…next weekend will be no different.
My predictions are ALWAYS wrong, so…Packer fans…enjoy the very real possibility that what I am about to write will be dead wrong…because it usually is.
That being said, the POSSIBILITY that I may be wrong is really the only hope the Packers have of not being embarrassed...
Aaron Rodgers has proven himself as a passer, but the Vikings are particularly impressed with his ability to move around, both in the pocket and outside, creating a lot of problems for the defenders in coverage.

In week 17, the NFL regular season finale, the NFC North Division Champion Green Bay Packers travel across the Mississippi River to take on the Minnesota Vikings in the Humpty Dump. At stake for the Packers is nailing down the number two seed in the NFC playoffs and a first round bye. For the ViQueens, a win means -- in all likelihood -- getting the sixth seed in the playoffs. Do...

MINNEAPOLIS When a quarterback talks about surges, most of the time he's talking about linebackers and linemen, about hulking monster-men out for his midsection and the ball. But on Sunday, when Aaron Rodgers talked about surges, he meant something very different.
The surge on Sunday in Minneapolis stopped the Packers for a full quarter....
With a chance to clinch the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs and earn a first-round bye, the Packers were unable to get it done. Green Bay needed a win Sunday over the Vikings in order to accomplish that goal, but lost on the road in Minnesota. After the San Francisco 49ers' won their Week 17 matchup, the Packers fell to the No. 3 spot in the postseason standings and will have...
