1) Introduction: Packers CB Sam Shields burst onto the scene with a solid rookie season in 2010 despite being an undrafted free agent. What made his performance even more impressive was the fact that he only played one year of cornerback at the University of Miami. (His first three years were spent at wide receiver.) His speed and athleticism have often overshadowed any deficiencies in technique.

3) Expectations coming into the season: It seemed as though a plague bore down on the cornerbacks in 2011. Not only did Tramon Williams suffer a shoulder injury, but Sam Shields’ play was noticeably subpar. Coaches attributed it to his increased responsibilities on the defense, while critics noted his lack of development in technique and unwillingness to be physical in his tackling. ...

1) Introduction: As part of the attempt to bolster the defense with talent, the Packers selected CB Casey Hayward in the 2012 NFL Draft with their third overall pick (Round 2, Pick 62). He was the unquestioned leader of the Vanderbilt defense in college, and Hayward was praised by scouts for his athleticism, awareness, and big play ability. Some have even likened him...
Young Brandon Bostick could be part of a two-headed monster at tight end in 2013
If the Green Bay Packers decide to part ways with tight end Jermichael Finley, the assumption is that GM Ted Thompson would either sign a replacement in free agency or draft one in April. But I’m not so sure about that. I think Finley’s successor, or should I say successors, might already be on the...
1) Introduction: There probably isn’t anyone on the Packers roster right now more infuriating to fans than Jarrett Bush. Coming onto the team as an undrafted free agent in 2006, his performance as a cornerback/safety has been frustrating, to say the least. With an uncanny ability to be in the wrong place at the wrong time (and generally doing the wrong thing), Bush...
Aaron Rodgers appreciates Brett Favre's longevity. He wants to replicate that tenure while playing for the Green Bay Packers. Of course, that will require continued success at a high level and staying healthy. These are two things that don't come easy in the NFL.
According to Garrett Johnston of the Post-Gazette, Rodgers wants to play as long as Favre played...

Jermichael Finley is at a crossroads in his Green Bay career. The Packers have a decision to make in terms of whether or not they want to pay him a $3 million in March.
If the Packers release Finley, it would save the team $8.25 million in salary cap space. Finley during an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, said it’s a 50/50 chance that he’s back with the Packers...
It’s been a tough year for Bears fans. Their team failed to make the playoffs AND they lost their coach. So in typical, classy Bears fan fashion, they took their aggression out on the person who REALLY deserved it. A former cheerleader for the Green Bay Packers.
Someone put up a picture of Kaitlyn Collins on a Bears Facebook fan page and decided to diss her looks. And of course...
Since free agency became the norm in the NFL there has been one thing that has been slowly dying out--team longevity. Fewer and fewer players are staying with one team opting to head for greener pastures (more money), but not necessarily a better team.
When the Green Bay Packers season ended one of their greats, wide receiver Donald Driver, decided to call it a career. Here...

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he’d like to be the starting quarterback through at least the 2020 season. “I've had eight great years there, the last five as a starter,” Rodgers told the Green Bay Press-Gazette from the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. “Hopefully I can give them another eight-plus years of playing at a high level.”
