GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Jermichael Finley speaks his mind. He wants to be an elite player in the NFL and doesn't hide that desire, even though some fans prefer he'd keep it to himself.
Finley's outspoken nature is what makes Green Bay's talented tight end captivating on and off the field and secures his spot each season as one of the most divisive players among Packers fans.
With a new two-year, 15 million contract in hand, Finley, entering his fifth year in the NFL at age 25, is on a mission to be recognized as one of the league's top players.
"I had a breakout year before (in 2009), but an elite breakout year where I take it to a whole other level, that's what I want," Finley told FOXSportsWisconsin.com this week. "But at the end of the day, I want that ring, though. That's the ultimate goal.
"Around here, we plan on winning multiple rings."
When Green Bay won the Super Bowl in 2010, Finley wasn't a part of the team's pl...

Seems like a clear victory to me, but Clay Matthews says it never happened.
“We picked the most inopportune time to play our worst ball,” linebacker Clay Matthews tells Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports. “The fact is, [the Giants] didn’t beat us; we beat ourselves. We need to play our best...
Green Bay Packers head coach MIke McCarthy reported that eleven players would not be on the playing field during the pre season opener against the San Diego Chargers. Two of the eleven players are out due to mild concussions, Greg Jennings and Marshall Newhouse will continue to recover this week.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For two consecutive years, Packers general manager Ted Thompson used Green Bay's first-round draft pick on an offensive tackle. First in 2010, Bryan Bulaga was selected 23rd overall. In 2011, Derek Sherrod was added with the 32nd pick.But with Bulaga having found a home at right tackle and Sherrod still recovering from the broken leg he suffered last season...
According to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson has stood out so far in training camp.
“If wide receiver Jordy Nelson hasn’t been the best player on the Green Bay Packers’ practice field the last two weeks there certainly haven’t been many better,” wrote McGinn.
Nelson received plenty of praise from...
GREEN BAY, Wis. After only one hour and 45 minutes, the Green Bay Packers concluded their shortest training camp practice of the season Monday night. With injuries and concussions beginning to pile up, coach Mike McCarthy wanted to make sure that he'd have as many healthy players as possible in three days when the Packers travel to face the San Diego Chargers for their preseason...

Despite heading into the playoffs with a 15-1 record and the number one seed in the NFC, the Green Bay Packers lost their first game to the New York Giants. To say last year’s Packers team relied heavily on the offense is an understatement...
PAINT THE FENCE
Just came across this photo on Reddit under the title “Feuding Neighbors.”
I’d say so.

A commenter at Reddit had a great suggestion:
I can’t be the only one thinking it’d be the greatest crime ever to go out in the middle of the night, say once a week, and paint purple over 2 more fence posts. See how long...
WAR OF WORDS
Justin Tuck responded to Clay Matthews' claim that the Packers beat themselves in the playoffs instead of being beaten by the Giants.
Offensive lineman Reggie Wells signed with the Packers, who also claimed wide receiver Andy Brewer off waivers from Philadelphia. Wells is a 10th-year veteran who can play guard and tackle, and helps provide needed depth. Guard Jaymes Brooks was placed on reserve/physically unable to perform and tackle Mike McCabe was placed on injured reserve. Wells has started games at left...
Depending on who you ask the 2011 Green Bay Packers had both a phenomenal and incredibly disappointing season. The Packers started by decimated nearly everyone during the regular season going 15-1. However come playoff time they ran into a juggernaut like Giants defensive line appropriately named “NASCAR” due to its speed and power. Offense was not [...]

Wide receiver Greg Jennings suffered a concussion during a team scrimmage Sunday night, according to Ty Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Consider Jennings day-to-day, and this should not be an issue as the star wideout does not have a history of concussions. And Randall Cobb is one key receiver that will benefit from extra reps while Jennings is recovering.
