Packers WR Randall Cobb
From the moment Randall Cobb first arrived in Green Bay, it was apparent that the former Kentucky star would add yet another wrinkle in the Packers already potent offense.
As a rookie, Cobb quickly emerged as a homerun threat in the return game—something the Packers haven’t had since the mid 1990s with Desmond Howard. And while Cobb hasn’t collected...

Packers kicker Mason Crosby was having a near-perfect camp. Everything was going swimmingly. I haven’t had to write about him or even so much as mention his name the past week. (Which is the way I like it).
Then the Packers decided to mess with a good thing on Family Night.
Under the guise of “getting used to the new stadium” (with the new south end zone construction...

Despite heading into the playoffs with a 15-1 record and the number one seed in the NFC, the Green Bay Packers lost their first game to the New York Giants. To say last year’s Packers team relied heavily on the offense is an understatement...
GREEN BAY, Wis. This was it. One more try. One last attempt at making it in the NFL. For punter Tim Masthay, if he didn't stick in Green Bay after signing with the Packers in 2010, he was planning to put an end to his short-lived professional football career and figure out what career path to try next.
Two years later, while continuing to punt with great success in Green Bay...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Jermichael Finley speaks his mind. He wants to be an elite player in the NFL and doesn't hide that desire, even though some fans prefer he'd keep it to himself.

Wide receiver Greg Jennings suffered a concussion during a team scrimmage Sunday night, according to Ty Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Consider Jennings day-to-day, and this should not be an issue as the star wideout does not have a history of concussions. And Randall Cobb is one key receiver that will benefit from extra reps while Jennings is recovering.
