PACKERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Randall Cobb suffers shoulder injury vs. Eagles

The Packers recently lost No. 1 receiver Jordy Nelson to a season-ending ACL injury, which made Cobb the team’s new top target in the passing game. Cobb tallied 91 receptions for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t play Saturday night, and we probably won’t see him again until Week 1.

Predicting the First Wave of Packer Cuts

As we get closer to the end of camp, that means that, unfortunately, “The Turk” will come calling for players. And when he tells them that coach wants to see them, they know that their time is up. For the Packers it is no different, except that this year the cuts are much more difficult. The first cut down needs to take place by Tuesday, and the roster has to be down to 75. Currently...

Three reasons the Green Bay Packers should not panic

The Green Bay Packers lost their star receiver in Jordy Nelson for the season earlier this week, and the Packers’ fans may have gone into panic mode. However, there is no need for this, seeing how the Packers’ offense is still deep and can attack from the ground and through the air.

Packers Most Overpaid Player

It’s not a big deal since the Packers are still nearly $16 million under the salary cap, but it’s clear a month into training camp that fourth-year safety Sean Richardson is the most overpaid player on the team. The former Vanderbilt star will make more money in 2015 than all but a dozen players on the entire roster. This, despite the fact he’s been no better than the 9th or...

Green Bay Packers game-by-game predictions (Part 2)

My early projections have the Green Bay Packers sitting at a pretty 7-1 record throughout the first half of their season. Their lone loss will come to the Denver Broncos in the Mile High City during Week 8, but the Pack will manage to get by dangerous teams like Carolina, Seattle and San Diego. With the Packers through their toughest part of the schedule, they’ll start off the...

Packers smart to sit Aaron Rodgers for rest of preseason

The Green Bay Packers lost their second-best offensive player, Jordy Nelson, to a torn ACL last week. Now, they may be protecting their best offensive player from getting injured in a meaningless preseason game. All signs point to quarterback Aaron Rodgers sitting out the remainder of the preseason, which is a very smart move by head coach Mike McCarthy. The reality is, veteran...

Sky’s The Limit For Linsley

I‘ve seen a lot of good centers play for the Packers since becoming a fan in 1978. Larry McCarren, Mike Flanagan and Scott Wells all played in at least one Pro Bowl, but the guy currently hiking the ball has a chance to better than them all. In only his second season, Corey Linsley plays the position like a 10-year veteran. A really good 10-year veteran. Linsley lasted until the...

Jordy Nelson: Move done “a gazillion times” led to torn ACL

Jordy Nelson tore his ACL during a preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Green Bay Packers wide receiver remains stunned at the season-ending injury.

Packers rookie WR Ty Montgomery taking over for Jordy Nelson

The Green Bay Packers suffered a huge loss on Sunday afternoon when Jordy Nelson went down with a torn ACL.

Eyeless Aaron Rodgers on ‘Madden 16’ is straight-up nightmare fuel (pic)

GAH! Aaron Rodgers is apparently such a phenomenal quarterback he doesn’t even need eyes to survey the field and pick apart defenses. At least that is how a hilarious glitch in “Madden 16” makes it appear as the Green Bay Packers quarterback is depicted sans eyes in his ocular cavities. ESPN’s Darren Rovell notes in a tweet that downloading all the patches will remove...

What Jordy Nelson’s Torn ACL Means For Davante Adams

The news about Jordy Nelson’s knee injury was gut-wrenching. Seeing any player go down with something as frustrating as a torn ACL always is. But, as the NFL mantra goes: Next man up. That same ideal applied to my next gut reaction: The Green Bay Packers — and quarterback Aaron Rodgers — don’t have anyone to replace his production. Randall Cobb and second-year player Davante...

Tyrod Taylor is key to Buffalo Bills making playoffs

The thought that the Buffalo Bills only need a QB that will manage the game, throw a handful of passes, but primarily hand the ball to a great running back to keep the game close enough that their extraordinary defense can influence the outcome of the game is an elementary thought in today’s NFL. This thought particularly highlights the mediocrity Bills’ fans have witnessed...
