Packers CB Davon House
For the first time in a while, cornerback may be the deepest position on the Green Bay Packers roster.
Tramon Williams is entering his eighth season with the Packers, Sam Shields is coming off his second impressive season in three years and Casey Hayward is fresh off a six-interception campaign in which he finished third in the voting for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Last season, the Packers have led the NFL in dime and nickel packages, so Williams, Shields and Hayward each played a considerable amount. But all three will face stiff competition this summer from third-year cornerback Davon House.
House suffered a left shoulder subluxation in the first week of the preseason, forcing him to play with a harness for the nine games he was able to suit up for. But prior to the injury, House looked like he was on his way to earning a starting job.
“It was mine to lose and I lost it because of injuries to me,” House said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “But l...

The Packers passing game has never been the problem. Their weaknesses were on defense and the running game. They were able to land a RB in the draft that many, including me, thought was the best talent available.
Have they done enough to make a run this year? This is my second pass through my database predicting every teams record.
Here's where I have every team...

The Green Bay Packers have the best quarterback in the National Football League. Problem is, Aaron Rodgers won’t be the quarterback for much longer if he keeps being the most hit quarterback in the league. Rodgers was sacked 51 times last year, which lead the NFL. He also tied for the Packers lead in rushing touchdowns...

Jordy Nelson is used to getting plenty of airtime on Sundays during football season, but this fall, the Packers' wide receiver is ditching Aaron Rodgers and teaming up with legendary Wisconsin director Jerry Zucker to appear in an ad campaign for the Wisconsin Department of Tourism.
Nelson and his wife Emily will star in a pair of 60- and 90-second TV commercials promoting tourism...

Looks like Williams has a second career lined up after football.
I like a good laugh as much as anyone. A hearty guffaw, a restrained chuckle, a snarky snicker – I like them all.
Usually, I like to laugh at things that are, you know… funny.
But there’s also this – reading things people say in all seriousness that are so ridiculous, all you can do is shake your head and smile at their ignorance. (sorry, I don’t like calling anyone ignorant...
PATCH IT UP
The Packers' CEO says the team has plans to retire Brett Favre's jersey before the former quarterback makes the Hall of Fame.
Surviving Sundays with no Packers Football
Do you ever wonder if the marketing machines behind professional sports franchises make fans stupid? Or are professional sports fans already stupid, and the marketing machines give fans exactly what they’re asking for?
I was thinking about this while covering the Yankees beating the Twins (yet again) earlier this week at Target Field....
The Seasons of Favre continue to unfold.
The Spring of 2013 will be remembered as the season which witnessed Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers, Mark Murphy, and Mike McCarthy express their desire to move beyond the messy divorce which has haunted them for five years now.
The Summer of 2013 has continued the path of reconciliation, with Packers Team President Mark Murphy stating emphatically...
The one thing many Green Bay Packers fans are wondering is when their beloved team is going to retired the number 4 jersey of former quarterback Brett Favre.
According to Tha Cover 2, Packers CEO Mark Murphy claims that they’re going to retire Favres jersey before 2016. That’s the same year Favre will be elgible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
I am often asked questions...
During a question and answer session on the Packers official website, team CEO Mark Murphy hinted that the return of Brett Favre into the organizations good graces is not that far away.
While answering questions, Murphy admitted that team was aiming to retire Favre’s number before 2016, when Favre would officially be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Every day until the start of camp on July 26, we’ll provide one juicy nugget to whet your appetite for the return of football. We’d give you more but the CBA forbids two-a-days. Sorry. Aaron Rodgers' brilliance can be seen in his situational numbers, including how he's torn apart the blitz.
In Part 4 of our series, we start hitting on some of the team's key players. Can Graham Harrell hold off B.J. Coleman? Can Johnny Jolly beat out Josh Boyd? Can James Starks stay healthy? Can Giorgio Tavecchio beat out Mason Crosby?
Tramon Williams on the ground with an injured shoulder is something Packers fans do not want to see in 2013.
Injuries suck. Injuries suck worse when they occur to players who suit up for the Green Bay Packers.
What makes injuries even more sucky is that the serious ones linger into the following season, or lead to once-good players getting released (hello, Desmond Bishop).
