(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By TODD McMAHON Associated Press James Jones is sticking to his prediction. He says the Green Bay Packers could have three 1,000-yard receivers in the same season for the first time, even without Greg Jennings and Donald Driver. Jones led the NFL with a career-high 14 touchdown receptions, while also setting personal bests for catches (64) and receiving yards (784). Randall Cobb had 80 catches for 954 yards, both team highs, and eight touchdowns. And Jordy Nelson had 745 receiving yards and seven TD catches despite missing four games with a hamstring injury. The ''Big Three'' have their sights on setting themselves apart as the most productive group of receivers in team history.

The Curious Case of Derek Sherrod

I would like to start by saying this: Derek Sherrod is a world class athlete and I am a media hack.  Actually, check that, I aspire to one day be a media hack.  I can’t stand when members of the media that did not compete at the highest level compare themselves to professional athletes (see Skip Bayless and his 1.7 ppg for Northwest Classen HS).  It’s a way of establishing...

Mike McCarthy: Jermichael Finley is “having a heck of a camp”

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy admits that they’ve asked tight end Jermichael Finley to tone things down in the media.  So far he’s complied and the Packers are very happy with how well he’s playing in camp so far. “He’s not in the media every day, that’s a good thing,” said McCarthy, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “That was a joke. But Jermichael...

Sergio? Packers' Giorgio Tavecchio hoping coach learns name soon

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Giorgio Tavecchio laughed it off, but it probably wasn't a good sign for the young Green Bay Packers kicker that coach Mike McCarthy didn't know his name.Sergio. That's what McCarthy called Tavecchio after Thursday's practice. Sergio is close to Giorgio, sure, but McCarthy would likely prefer that his bosses not refer to him as Mark in a public...

Eddie Lacy not worried about weight, unflattering picture

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Eddie Lacy saw the picture. Players inside the Green Bay Packers locker room saw it too and made sure to give their rookie running back a hard time about it. Lacy didn't care. Yeah, that particular photo doesn't make the 5-foot-11, 230-pounder look good, but Lacy knows it's not an accurate representation of the condition that he's in. "That...

Mike McCarthy says Eddie Lacy is in shape

On Monday a photo of Packers running back Eddie Lacy went viral.  It looked like the rookie back went on a McDonalds diet and gained 30 pounds over night. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy cleared things up today and said that Lacy is in shape and wouldn’t be playing if he wasn’t. “Going through the conditioning test, he was fine. If we had any concern about any guys they wouldn’t...

Elderly Packers fan rocks her trademark mohawk for team’s annual 5K run (pic)

On Saturday, the Green Bay Packers held their fourth annual 5K run at Lambeau Field, and for one day, Packer Backers set aside the beer, bratwurst and cheese and get a little exercise in as a means to celebrate the start of training camp and the upcoming NFL season. One such individual who attended the [...]The post Elderly Packers fan rocks her trademark mohawk for team’s annual...

Packers training camp report: Aug. 1

Date: Thursday, August 1, 2013 Practice Time: 8:20 a.m. (Total: 2 hours, 22 minutes) Sidelined: CB Casey Hayward (Hamstring -- Consecutive Missed Practices: 6) DE Mike Neal (Abdomen -- Consecutive Missed Practices: 6) RB DuJuan Harris (Knee -- Consecutive Missed Practices: 6) OL Derek Sherrod (Leg -- Consecutive Missed Practices: 6) S Sean Richardson (Neck -- Consecutive Missed...

Micah Hyde Becomes Training Camp’s Week 1 Darling

It only makes sense that in the first practice after I write a piece about how there are 4 corners on the roster (Williams, House, Hayward, Shields) with a legitimate chance to make an impact on the 2013 Green Bay Packers that the darling of training camp is CB Micah Hyde.  It certainly makes sense.  Hyde has rare size for a cornerback (6’1″ 197) and was a playmaker all throughout...

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy disputes notion that Eddie Lacy is fat (pic/vid)

On Monday, a photo (above) that made its way around the Internet on Monday igniting a firestorm of fat jokes seems to show that Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy may have packed on a few tens of pounds during the offseason and showed up to training camp terribly out of shape. Obese, even. [...]The post Packers head coach Mike McCarthy disputes notion that Eddie Lacy is fat...

Mike McCarthy Says Eddie Lacy Is Not Out Of Shape

Packers glorious past illustrated in new book released today

There are more Green Bay Packers fans in this country than fanatics of any other team. At least that’s what Nebraska Cornhuskers QB Taylor Martinez told me a few days ago. Although I’m not sure what metric he’s using. Or if he’s even right. He says the Huskers are #2 behind the Packers. Sounds believable to me. But I recommend all Packer Backers check out the beautifully...
