Not even Randall Cobb could rescue the Packers against the Giants.
I’ve been doing the Packers Stock Report weekly for over two years now. Most of you know how it works.
But just in case, it’s important to know this while you’re reading and agreeing/disagreeing with my selections:
I don’t base the rising/falling/steady selections solely on the most recent game. The most recent game receives the most weight, but I typically factor in the last three games, sometimes more.
For example, if Donald Driver would have caught six passes for 100 yards and a touchdown on Sunday (we can dream, right?), I still probably wouldn’t have put him in the rising category. One good game out of 11 does not necessarily mean you’re rising. It means you had one good game.
I’m trying to identify more long-term patterns or trends that might play out over the next couple of weeks. While it seems like the rising category should be empty this week, remember that I’m factoring in more than the debacle against the...

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers areboth coming off losses, but are still in the thick of the NFC playoff race, adding to the significance of Sunday's game at Lambeau Field.
Both teams need a win on Sunday against each other. Chicago (8-3) still leads the NFC North, with Green Bay (7-4) and Minnesota (6-5) right behind. The Packers are penciled...
The Green Bay Packers will look to bounce back from their humbling defeat as they take on division rival, the Minnesota Vikings.
As seems to be the theme this season, the Packers are faced with more bad injury news. It looks like defensive end C.J. Wilson will miss this game with a knee injury he suffered last week. Clay Matthews is also still an unknown. This is bad news because...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews is unlikely to play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings due to a hamstring injury that is still bothering him.
"I think it would be a stretch for (Matthews) to play in the game," coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday. "I had a chance to watch Clay go through rehab today. Talking with him, he wants the opportunity...
Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will miss his fourth consecutive game Sunday against Minnesota. He's been dealing with a hamstring issue.Fantasy Spin:Green Bay was hoping Matthews would be fully recovered but apparently he's still in some pain. This is great news for the Vikings' offense.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said earlier in the week that Clay Matthews would be "a stretch" to play Sunday, so it was little surprise when McCarthy didn't need to stretch into Sunday to declare his Pro Bowl linebacker out for Green Bay's game against the Minnesota Vikings.
The coach said Friday that Matthews took part only in rehab Friday and that the team'...
Clay Matthews will miss a third consecutive game, one of six players who have been ruled out. With other injuries, the Packers might be using 44 or 45 players on Sunday against Minnesota. The Vikings' Percy Harvin is doubtful. We have the injury reports and more from Friday.
Linebacker Clay Matthews will remain sidelined this week with an hamstring injury, but the Green Bay Packers are hoping to get wide receiver Greg Jennings back on the field for Sunday's game against Detroit. Matthews has missed two games in a row with the lingering injury. And while the All-Pro linebacker has made some strides in his rehab work, he hasn't practiced all...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Greg Jennings this week. Clay Matthews next week. Charles Woodson and Cedric Benson in two weeks. If all four Packers stars can reach those projected return dates, Sunday's 38-10 loss to the New York Giants will become a game that won't be representative of the rest of this season.
Very little about Green Bay's most recent effort indicated that the...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers coach Mike McCarthy is hoping that Sunday's 38-10 loss to the New York Giants was just one bad game, because he has no plans to do anything differently in preparation this week.
"We're not going to change the way we go about our business," McCarthy said in his Tuesday press conference. "Urgency, awareness is obviously heightened...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) Kevin Greene is among those who miss not having Clay Matthews on the field for the Green Bay Packers.
Greene just doesn't want the star linebacker to be rushed back from a hamstring injury.
''I want Clay back as soon as he is 110 percent healthy,'' said Greene, the Packers' outside linebackers coach. ''I don't want him...
