Found November 13, 2013 on NFL Draft Diamonds:

Today the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed small school standout Michael Hill from Missouri Western.  Hill was on the practice squad of the Packers.  This is a great signing for the Bucs, because Hill is a very quick runner.  He was one of my selections for the Raycom All-Star Game.

Matt Flynn 'never expected to be back' with Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- This isn't the way Matt Flynn wanted his NFL career to work out.

But Flynn's disappointing stops with the Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills...

Finley, 26, suffered the injury in the second half of a win against the...

Packers work to get Tolzien ready, welcome Flynn

Get a flow chart ready to follow the Packers' quarterback situation. The old backup is now the backup again. He's taking the place of the guy who was the backup, who played for a series before he was injured and gave way to the former third-stringer. All this after Aaron Rodgers got hurt. Amid that instability, is a picture of calm, at least at his locker Wednesday. Former...

Matt Flynn’s Return To Green Bay Highlights Major QB Problems

As soon as the extent of Aaron Rodgers’ shoulder injury became apparent, Matt Flynn’s return was always on the cards. Rodgers and Brett Favre have, since 1992, been the only regular signal callers in Green Bay and the back ups at Lambeau (Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzein) do not exactly inspire confidence.Rodgers has worked near miracles with a severely depleted receiving corps...

History Lesson: Packers Drug Addict Kicker Wins Game in OT

Ever hear about this one? Back in 1980, the two stupidest NFL franchises in history were facing each other in a crappy back and forth game that was tied 6-6 as it went into overtime. Some people will say it was a "defensive struggle", but let's not be cute, here. It was a crap fest of epic proportions between a bunch of fat assholes. One of those fat assholes...

Clay Matthews to Discard Club and Don Brace

Clay Matthews returned last week, but was more ineffective than he would have been otherwise because of the giant club he was wearing to protect his healing thumb. The good news for Packers fans and Clay is that he's progressed enough over the past week that the Packers will put Clay in a brace for this week's game, and remove the cumbersome cast. Per totalpackers...

Jermichael Finley’s Career May Be Over

Just when it looked like Jermichael Finley was going to make a full recovery from his neck injury, it is now being reported that he is to have surgery on his neck, which could effectively end his career.

The Quarterback Carousel for the Green Bay Packers

The tenure of Seneca Wallace has ended. Green Bay lost its second starting quarterback in the span of two weeks when Wallace went down with a groin injury on the first drive of their game against the Philadelphia Eagles. It was a sad end for Wallace who was excited for a chance to show what he had for the first time in four seasons. He has bounced around the NFL as a quality backup...

Setting the Scene with Flynn and Tolzien

With reporters swarming around the new faces — and ignoring Aaron Rodgers — Scott Tolzien talks about a "wild couple weeks" and Matt Flynn talks about having nothing to prove.

With Dietrich-Smith, Center Gets No Attention

Evan Dietrich-Smith has provided a power blocker in the team's vastly improved running game. More than that, his hustle was an unsung key to the up-tempo offense led by Aaron Rodgers. Without Rodgers, Dietrich-Smith and the line will do what they can to make life easier for Scott Tolzien.
