Green Bay Packers
Ryan Grant is the best option for the Green Bay Packers at this point.
When Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin broke the news this week that the Green Bay Packers were bringing back familiar veteran Ryan Grant, it quickly spread like wildfire across the internet. After choosing not to resign Grant in the offseason, the Packers made it clear that they were ready to move on. And to seemingly add insult to injury, Ted Thompson picked up free agent Cedric Benson during preseason to help boost their running back corps.
Now, it seems, we have come full circle. With the knee injury sustained by James Starks on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, the Packers became very thin at the position when looking at starting talent. It was obvious they needed to do something to again help the group out, and the signing of Ryan Grant was arguably the best option they had.
So after an offseason of speculating where Ryan Grant would end up, we find ourselves almost back where we began.

As we head into the stretch run of the regular season, the Green Bay Packers and head coach Mike McCarthy seem to be preparing for both Charles Woodson and Clay Matthews to return to the line up next week against the Bears. McCarthy wanted both Woodson (collarbone) and Matthews (hamstring) in pads doing a limited amount of banging around because the team will not be in pads next...
The Green Bay Packers have been burned by injuries on the field throughout 2012. The list is depressing: Desmond Bishop, Bryan Bulaga, Charles Woodson, Clay Matthews, Cedric Benson, Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, D.J. Smith, Sam Shields, Nick Perry, James Starks. All have missed multiple games or been placed on injured reserve.
The Packers protected their pocketbooks when signing...

Packers receiver Jordy Nelson missed every practice this week and is out for Week 14 against Detroit.Fantasy Spin:Green Bay has plenty of depth in the receiving corps, particularly with the return of Greg Jennings, so this injury shouldn't affect Aaron Rodgers' performance too drastically - just Nelson's fantasy owners.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Now that defensive end Everson Griffen has been fined, the Minnesota Vikings won't be any more pleased with the NFL over what it felt was a penalty on a clean play in last Sunday's loss to Green Bay.
The NFL announced Friday that Griffen will lose 15,750 for a roughing-the-passer penalty on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers late in the second quarter...
Detroit Lions (4-8) at Green Bay Packers (8-4)
This is a really interesting game. Earlier this week, I wrote about some of the parity related things that happen every single year and how those could be used to help predict games the rest of the way. The Lions are by far the likeliest candidate to be this year’s team that goes from in the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. Only the Saints...
Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams was fined $21,000 for his personal foul on Minnesota Vikings running back Toby Gerhart during Sunday's game. Television replays showed that Williams' helmet launched into Gerhart's helmet. Gerhart was considered a defenseless receiver on the play. It appeared that Williams was trying to hit Gerhart with his shoulder, according...
I think that game was also a little skewed because the Packers were on fire and the Texans were a...

The weather forecast holds promise.
Dreaming of a White Packers home game is now almost wished upon as much as a White Christmas.
Not that a White Christmas is a huge necessity; at least a Christmas without snow ensures getting to Grandma’s and back safely.
But white-out Packers games become instant memories.
Sadly, it doesn’t seem to happen as often these days – damn global...
The Green Bay Packers started off the season 2-3, but they went on a big winning streak and are now tied with the Chicago Bears for first place in the NFC North. The way we see it, they have a very good chance of residing solely in first after the weekend.

The Detroit Lions travel into historic Lambeau Field Sunday night to do battle with the Green Bay Packers. The Frozen Tundra has been a house of horrors for The Detroit Lions as they continue to battle ghosts of the past and present. Detroit hasn’t won in Green Bay since George H. Bush was President all the way back on December 15th, 1991 by a score of 21-17.
This Packers team...
Deliver a big hit — legal or not — and face the consequences. That’s basically what the NFL has become. No team knows that more than the Green Bay Packers.
Green Bay's offense ranks eighth in the NFL inside the 20-yard line but the last four games have produced some dismal results. How can that be, given Aaron Rodgers' success inside the red zone? This is a critical note considering Detroit's red-zone defense ranks ninth.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's going to be a tight race over the final four games of the season between the Packers and Chicago Bears -- both with an 8-4 record -- to see which team enters the playoffs as the NFC North champion. If the Packers win out, it will be them, with the first of those four challenges happening Sunday night at Lambeau Field in potentially snowy conditions against...
