Like Darren Sharper and Nick Collins, there are defensive backs coming out of college that just seem to get it and can contribute right away. This year it’s rookie cornerback Casey Hayward, who actually is tied for the lead in interceptions with 4.
Hayward has been a very good slot cornerback behind Tramon Williams, Sam Shields and Charles Woodson, but with Sam Shields out after being kicked in the shin against the Texans, Hayward was shifted out to the outside. How would he respond in his first start and being left on a island? Pretty good. While fans will gush at his acrobatic interception, I would probably suggest that everyone take a step back; Hayward is solid cornerback, just not a playmaker…yet
The Situation: The score is 17-6 in favor of the Packers with 1:25 left in the 3rd quarter. Needless to say things haven’t gone so well for the Rams in the 2nd half. For the first 30 minutes of football, the Rams had managed to keep the game close by using a steady diet of ground...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Marshall Newhouse has come a long way in the past year. The Packers' third-year left tackle has been performing well as Aaron Rodgers' blind-side protector, showing steady improvement since he first took over the job in Week 5 last season. There have been a few negative moments for Newhouse, such as allowing five sacks in Green Bay's first seven games...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- There is never any guesswork when it comes to figuring out what's on Jermichael Finley's mind. The Packers' outspoken tight end won't shy from the media, regardless of the topic. Finley is honest, perhaps to a fault. His transparency is part of what makes him a fascinating athlete. Whether he's discussing injuries, dropped passes or the ever...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Greg Jennings may not be the only Packers wide receiver unavailable for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jordy Nelson, who leads the team in receptions and yards this season, missed Thursday's practice and has already been ruled out from participating Friday due to a hamstring injury.
In order for Nelson to be cleared before Green Bay'...
Green Bay Packers fans now have a new way to showcase their team pride, thanks to Wisconsin-based clothing retailer, Lands’ End. The company developed an exclusive collection to celebrate the 13-time championship winning team and its traditions.

AllGreenBayPackers.com Predictions: "Jersey" Al and his cast of writers make their 2012 NFL Week 8 game predictions for the Green Bay Packers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars.
Judged merely on his on-field play, Janoris Jenkins could have been the first cornerback taken in the 2012 NFL draft. Unfortunately, the Rams' rookie's college career didn't go as smoothly as he may have hoped.
That's why St. Louis was able to bite when they saw the talented player still waiting for them with the 39th overall pick in the second round...
The Green Bay Packers are known for winning world championships. So much so, that Lands' End has made a clothing line representing their greatness.
The Packers and the lifestyle brand have teamed up to launch an exclusive Titletown Collection that will be available on both the Packers Pro Shop and on the Lands' End website. Not a bad revenue builder for a team that is...
The Green Bay Packers will likely be without 2011 first-round draft pick Derek Sherrod for the entire season. The offensive tackle out of Mississippi State broke his tibia and fibula Dec. 18, 2011, against the Kansas City Chiefs and had surgery that night.
"He's not ready," coach Mike McCarthy told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "That's really all I can...

Last week: 18 (-2) With the trade deadline upcoming this week, the Rams have reportedly made several veterans available for trade. It makes sense that one of these would be Steven Jackson because he’s really their only veteran. He’s got the option to opt out of his contract after this season and he’s already splitting [...]

Joe Barksdale is finding himself in a lot of new situations these days.
The second-year tackle is with a new team, learning a new offense - and doing it in a different country.
Barksdale was picked up off waivers by the rebuilding St. Louis Rams last month after being dropped by Oakland, and was given his first career NFL start last weekend in a loss to the Green Bay Packers.
ST. LOUIS - A change of scenery can be a kick to the conscience. Settings can become stale, the shine from a 3-2 start can dull, the Edward Jones Dome can become Lambeau Field South and a bucket of water tossed in the face after a dream September can be more frigid than the St. Louis Rams red-zone offense.
Given all that, its not a bad thing Jeff Fisher & Co. will try to shake...
The St. Louis Rams have listed wide receiver Danny Amendola as questionable heading into Sunday’s game against the Patriots. I’d be very surprised if Amendola plays, but then again he’s … Continue reading »
The St. Louis Rams and New England Patriots are set to square off in London, England on Sunday afternoon. With the Rams 3-4 on the season in their first year under head coach Jeff Fishers, Sunday's game across the pond provides this young team with a nice opportunity to upset a NFL power.
Unfortunately, in my opinion, the match-up may be too much for the young Rams to handle...
