Green Bay Packers Defense Carrying Team

– By James Alexander The Green Bay Packers are commonly known as the team that “scores a ton of points”, while also giving up almost as many. For years now, the Packers have had an explosive offense which had been the main factor in their recent run of success. Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers was at the helm of an offense that was often asked to mask the many flaws and holes...

Packers no longer relying solely on Aaron Rodgers and offense

There is something going on with the Green Bay Packers and it starts with defense, a pleasant change from previous years. As Aaron Rodgers and the offense work to find their identity, the defense has helped the team become a well rounded machine. "Honestly, I think this is the best team and the most talented team that we've had since I've been here," offensive lineman Josh Sitton...

Join the Hot Mess Express as they break down an ugly Packers win. Aaron Rodgers had a rough day – which some quarterbacks would give their left nut for. Rollins is boss, with a pick-6 and another regular pick (almost as good as a pick-6 but not quite). Clay Matthews terrorized the Rams offense – especially the quarterback – for the whole day. And the Packers are 5-0, but we...

Video: Todd Gurley catches an airborne Clay Matthews and bodyslams him

Check out this block yesterday on Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, who by the way, has 25 pounds on Gurley. Todd Gurley and Clay Matthews have had the time of their lives.

Secondary To None

The biggest tests are still to come, but after five games no secondary is playing better than Green Bay’s. And that’s without safety Morgan Burnett – arguably the team’s best defensive back a year ago – for four of those contests. While improved communication has certainly played a part in the high level of execution, the bigger reasons are quite simple – rookies are...

WATCH: Todd Gurley flips Clay Matthews with monster block

As it turns out, Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley can do much more than just run the ball. He can also take out one of the best pass rushers in football. With Clay Matthews rushing the quarterback during Sunday’s game, Gurley intervened, stood tall, and won the battle against Green Bay’s star linebacker. Not...Read More

Aaron Rodgers has amazing interception streak broken

It only took 588 tries for a defender to finally haul in an interception on an Aaron Rodgers pass at Lambeau Field. Rodgers had been on an amazing interception-free streak that dated back to December of 2012 before Sunday. St. Louis Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis got his hands on a tipped pass, thus breaking the streak. Here is a clip of the play that broke Rodgers remarkable...

NFL Week 5 Packers vs. Rams Preview and Prediction

So, let's get this out of the way first (since I was negligent in writing a follow-up earlier in the week): the Packers beat the 49ers. Let's repeat: the Packers beat the 49ers. In San Francisco. And throttled heretofore Packers-killer QB Colin Kaepernick in the process behind a great defensive effort by the Pack. 'Bout time. Yay.Now..on to today's game: the Packers vs. (the once...

WR Jeff Janis working to get up to speed with Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers caught a break when wide receiver James Jones became available around the same time Jordy Nelson went down with a knee injury; however, with Davante Adams struggling to stay healthy, Janis looks to be a key figure as the season moves on. "Aaron knows I’m kind of a faster guy so he was excited about it and wants to hit me on a couple of deep balls. He wants...

Rams had LB wear blonde wig to simulate Clay Matthews

Clay Matthews can be a disruptive force so it’s not surprising that ahead of their game against the Packers on Sunday, the Rams had a player simulate him during practice. However, it wasn’t just his play on the defensive side of the ball St. Louis mimicked. They his hair as well. As seen above, linebacker...Read More

Defensive First Round Draft Picks Paying Dividends for Thompson’s Packers

 When David Zillmer was child, Bart Starr was leading Lombardi’s Packers to championships. When Daniel Zillmer was a child, Brett Favre was restoring that glory to Titletown.

Green Bay's deceivingly stingy defense

When it’s football season in Wisconsin, there’s a noticeable change in the air. Nowadays, Green Bay Packers fans are used to a certain level of excellence. On that front, they’ve undoubtedly been spoiled.

Rodgers on INT-free season: ‘I don’t think it is’ possible

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has avoided interceptions at a historic rate, but the reigning NFL MVP isn’t sold on the idea he could last an entire season without throwing a pick. Per ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, Rodgers said though he enjoys the streak, it’s too early to think about an interception-free 2015 campaign. “It’s Week 5, I think. That’s a tough...

Green Bay Packers Cheesehead of the Week: Derek Williams
