NFL Draft Zone:
Green Bay Packers safety M.D. Jennings started 10 games in 2012, had 52 tackles and a 72-yard interception return for a touchdown. However, people only want to talk about one play: the “Fail Mary”.
“Man, everywhere I go it always comes up,” Jennings recently told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “If I’m out somewhere and somebody recognizes me, it’s always about the Monday night play. … I wanted to go out there and make another play because I don’t want that to be how everybody remembers me.”
I dont blame him, It was a great play and a horrible call. What do you think football fans? Was it a catch?

In our first part of this series, we are going to take a look at the Green Bay Packers’ base defense, the “Okie.” The overarching 3-4 defensive philosophy is derived from this formation, as it was the one originally developed in the 1950’s by Coach Bud Wilkinson of Oklahoma. Of course, it all started out as a 5-2 formation, which will make sense later.
Explaining the Formation...
One thing that really stands out to newly acquired Green Bay Packers tight end Matthew Mulligan is how the team places an emphasis on little talked about team bonding actvities.
Movie nights with teammates are a regular occurrence in Green Bay, and head coach Mike McCarthy recently scrapped the last day of minicamp for a team dodgeball tournament.
Thos little things go a long...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Four years into his NFL career, Green Bay Packers nose tackle B.J. Raji believes he's on the verge of his best season yet.
Raji needs his optimistic view to play out this way. Entering the last year of his contract with the Packers with no extension offer on the table, Raji is looking for -- and perhaps creating -- ways to give himself added motivation. While...

He was one of Brett Favre’s and Aaron Rodgers’ favorite targets, including catching Favre’s record breaking career touchdown pass. Now, Jennings has left the Packers for the team he caught that record touchdown...

This is the third in a series of videos being produced by the UCLA film department about Packers draft pick Johnathan Franklin. (you can find part one here and part two here) In this episode, we learn about Johnathan’s character and leadership abilities.
You’ll hear a lot of commentary from UCLA coach Jim Mora, who among other things...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Rick Spielman's admiration of Ted Thompson is well-known, with the Minnesota Vikings front office boss appreciating the way Thompson has built the Green Bay Packers over the years.
Coincidentally, it's often led to Minnesota -- and Spielman since he's taken control as the team's general manager -- signing former Packers. The list continues with...
Listen. We all know Magic Johnson is the greatest point guard in NBA history (well next to my created Myplayer on NBA 2K but that’s beside the point). No one questions his supremacy on the court and his astute business acumen off the court. But can I be honest with you again? Magic is a [...]

Bishops agent, Blake Baratz, posted a tweet Monday afternoon announcing the news.
Released by the Packers last week, Bishops first free-agent visit was with the Vikings. Though Bishop had interest from other...
Unfortunately for Green Bay Packers' fans, the news is in and even though it's not unexpected, it has to hurt a little bit as former Packers standout Desmond Bishop has agreed to a one-year deal with the hated Minnesota Vikings according to a report by Pro Football Talk.
Demond Bishop agrees to one-year deal with vikings, per source with knowledge of situation.
Aaron Rodger took to Twitter to rip Magic Johnson and Jon Gruden. Correctly.
Magic is quickly becoming the John Gruden of ESPN NBA coverage. Everybody is the greatest everything. #bedtime—...

Surviving Sundays with no Packers Football
LeBron James won his second consecutive NBA title with the Miami Heat on Thursday night and cemented his status as one of the greatest players of all time (at least among sane people).
I hated “The Decision” as much as anyone else, but I’m also over it. I don’t necessarily cheer for James now, but I make sure to appreciate him when...
