Week 8 scouting report: Green Bay Packers

At this point I am no longer going to try to predict what we will see from this team from week to week. One minute they look like one of the most dominant teams in the league (56 minutes of Sunday), and then they detonate all that hard work in two awful plays. One was as boneheaded of a play as can happen where Corey White tried to jump a pass and intercept a short out to Golden...

And it actually provides some insight into what’s going to transpire on Sunday and Monday...

Packers fans will enjoy Johnny Manziel’s hot new girlfriend on Instagram

If Brian Hoyer struggles again this weekend you can bet we’re on the verge of seeing Johnny Manziel. Hoyer was awful last week in Jacksonville, and should he pull something similar against Oakland this weekend Johnny Cleveland will get his shot. Off the field Manziel’s antics are legendary. From partying with Gronk, to partying in Mexico, to partying in Vegas to pulling some...

Green Bay Packers are the favorites in the NFC

As we reach the midpoint of the 2014 season, there have been plenty of surprises around the league.  The Dallas Cowboys, yes the Dallas Cowboys, have a league best record at 6-1.  The New Orleans Saints, who many predicted would be in the Super Bowl, are struggling at 2-4.  Probably the most surprising team is the defending champion Seattle Seahawks, who are at 3-3.

Matt Flynn had a blast at Pearl Jam concert

Life as a backup quarterback in the NFL isn’t bad. You technically get to call yourself an NFL quarterback, but you don’t have to worry about the injuries or scrutiny that come with being the starter. And when you go to Pearl Jam concerts in nearby cities, you are a big deal. That was the case for Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn, who spent his Tuesday night at...

Packers’ 2014 Draft Class Paying Early Dividends

As I sat in the Lambeau Field bleachers and watched the Panthers game, I couldn’t help but to think of how well the 2014 draft class is panning out.  Now there are certainly disappointments.  It’s possible (maybe even likely) that Khyri Thornton Carl Bradford and Demetri Goodson can’t play.  Jared Abbrederis was lost for the season with an ACL injury.  Other than that though...

Randall Cobb Setting Himself Up For Big Money

It’s no coincidence that the Green Bay Packers’ offense has jump started with the return of the electric and explosive Randall Cobb. Green Bay’s offense struggled during their 1-2 start in large part because Cobb was showing rust from his broken leg last season and Aaron Rodgers was locking in on Jordy Nelson too much because he had nobody else he trusted. Now, with Cobb returning...
