Green Bay Packers
San Francisco 49ers
Sam Shields was one of the bright spots for the Packers against the 49ers.
The Packers season is over. They got smoked by the 49ers in the NFL playoffs on Saturday night.
I’m sick of writing about it. I’m sick of talking about it. I’m sick of thinking about it.
On to the stock report:
The combination of Shields getting healthy and realizing he’s a restricted free agent really got him going. Shields will likely get a first-round tender and I expect the Packers to open their checkbooks and lock him up for the next few years. Let’s hope he stays motivated, keeps improving, and plays like he did down the stretch.
With Greg Jennings likely gone and Jermichael Finley possibly following him out the door, Jones can establish himself as an upper-echelon receiver next season. Jones came to play on Saturday night. It was nice to see Jones use his size a bit this season. I always thought he played smaller than he was, but he went up and got a few balls in traffic ...

Lovie Smith and the 4-3 defense for the Packers? I don’t think so.
There has been a lot of talk among Green Bay Packers fans regarding Dom Capers and his future as the team’s defensive coordinator. Saturday’s postseason loss to the San Francisco 49ers was the anvil that broke the camel’s back after a 2011 season of defensive agony, despite their overall improvement in 2012...
With Charles Woodson turning 37 years-old soon and the fact that he will account for $10 million towards the Green Bay Packers’ salary cap in 2013, it might make sense for them to release him this offseason.
Even though Woodson has been playing at a high level late in his career, it’s simply not worth it for the Packers to have an aging veteran tie up so much money under their...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Packers seem like a team that could be making a habit out of trips to the Super Bowl. Armed with the NFL's reigning Most Valuable Player at quarterback, a talented group of wide receivers, an elite pass-rusher in Clay Matthews and a young core built through the draft, Green Bay's roster has most of the important pieces needed to attain that level of...
GREEN BAY, Wis. The Packers were apparently quite happy with their practice-squad players at the end of this season, signing all eight of them to new contracts.
General manager Ted Thompson announced Monday afternoon that the team had signed quarterback B.J. Coleman and offensive tackle Andrew Datko, both of whom were seventh-round picks by Green Bay in the 2012 draft. The Packers...
According to an NFL scout that spoke with Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers WR Greg Jennings may have a ”much smaller” market for his services than Vincent Jackson had last year.
“I put Vincent Jackson last year up in the elite spectrum, a Pro Bowl-caliber player,” the scout said. “He’s also 6-5 and still can do a lot more things. Greg can’t compete with Vincent...
After a disappointing playoff loss last Saturday to the 49ers, the Green Bay Packers need to evaluate the direction their defense is headed in under Dom Capers.
The Packers defense gave up almost 600 yards to the 49ers offense, which is completely uncalled for.
During his closing press conference, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was asked about Capers’ future.
McCarthy said it...

While last night’s game ended well for fans of the San Francisco 49ers. However, for some within Candlestick Park, they did not get to catch the end of the game. According to the Associated Press, 92 fans were ejected...

In week one, Green Bay fell short to San Francisco, 30-22. On Saturday, it was the same story, just a different quarterback. 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick picked up his first career playoff win with a 45-31 win over Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Kaepernick totaled 444 yards and four touchdowns (2 rush, 2 pass). His 181 rushing yards set a record for the most rushing...

This is the picture I will remember.
It pains me to write this but I think you are the only one I can connect with and we can deal with this pain together.

Granted, the Packers have been probably the...
