Former Packers LB Dave Robinson
The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced its two senior nominees for 2013 on Wednesday. The class of 2013 will not be elected until February, but Wednesday’s news elicited two very different reactions from fans of the Green Bay Packers.
The good news–linebacker Dave Robinson was named as a finalist for enshrinement.
Robinson was selected to three Pro Bowls, while playing on three Championship teams under Vince Lombardi. The former Penn State standout played ten seasons with the Packers from 1963 until 1972 before finishing his career with a two-year run with the Washington Redskins.
But the bad news–offensive guard Jerry Kramer was left off the list.
It’d be a mistake to let the disappointing news about Kramer overshadow Robinson’s big day, but it’s hard to overlook the travesty of Kramer being left out of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Cedric Benson has only been a member of the Green Bay Packers for slightly over a week, but he’s already been getting reps with the No. 1 offense in training camp.
In just two practices wearing full pads, Benson has broken off a handful of impressive runs, and he certainly appears to be as natural a runner as any running back on the roster. Although he’s...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is on his way back to Green Bay due to the birth of a child and will miss Thursday night's preseason game in Cincinnati against the Bengals, according to his Twitter account.
"A blessing has came into the world," Finley tweeted Thursday morning. "Sorry Fans. 88 is Heading back to GB from Cinny to take care...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- If Aaron Rodgers is forced to miss any games this season due to injury, clearly the Green Bay Packers would not be the same team no matter who the backup quarterback is. After all, Rodgers is the NFL's Most Valuable Player and is the biggest reason why the Packers led the league in scoring last season.
But in recent years, Green Bay was in reliable hands in...
After going with a youth movement at running back for the entire offseason, the Packers caved earlier this month and signed veteran running back Cedric Benson after injury prone youngster James Starks suffered a turf toe injury, on top of a rough Training Camp and preseason, that threatened his availability for the regular season. As could be expected, the Packers are likely to start...
Former Green Bay Packers linebacker Dave Robinson is one step closer to enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Robinson, a 71-year-old who played from 1963-72 with the Packers before spending 1973-74 with the Washington Redskins, was named Wednesday as one of the two senior finalists for the Class of 2013. Defensive tackle Curley Culp, 66, is the other nominee. He played...
According to a post on a message board of a landlord agency website, a landlord in Green Bay wants to know if he is allowed to evict tenants because they are Bears fans.
The Green Bay Packers are no longer winless this preseason. A 27-13 victory in Cincinnati over the Bengals won't mean much once records are erased in less than two weeks, but coach Mike McCarthy and the Packers finally have a long list of positives to talk about when they review the game film this weekend.Five things we learned from the Packers' win:1. Cedric Benson is a...
What a difference one player can make. Cedric Benson breathed life into the Packers' offense during an outstanding debut at Cincinnati on Thursday night. These killer numbers drive home what was obvious as Benson produced on the ground and set things up through the air.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers ran everywhere, including the end zone. Twice.
The MVP quarterback led Green Bay to a big first half Thursday night, running for 52 yards and two touchdowns during a 27-13 preseason victory that got the Packers' offense moving at full speed.
The Packers (No. 1 in the AP Pro32) wanted to look crisp coming off a drubbing by Cleveland. Rodgers...

I have Drew Brees at #1 among QBs because of his consistency over the last 4 years. If there is something that Rodgers does much better than Brees, it’s run the ball. Nice little run here for a TD. S/O to @sbanation for the GIF.
