Packers vs. Bills Knee-Jerk Reaction

The Green Bay Packers got beaten and humbled by the Buffalo Bills today.  Those of you who follow me on Twitter may have already opted not to read this piece.  Others may be rolling their eyes.  But hear me out.  While I prefer to “keep it real” and don’t pull any punches when the Packers play badly, I’m aware of the reality of what lies ahead the next two weeks.

5 things to watch: Packers at Bills

Five things to watch for in the Week 15 Sunday afternoon matchup when the Green Bay Packers (10-3) face the Buffalo Bills (7-6) at Ralph Wilson Stadium: 1. A great defense, on the road . . . Stopping Green Bay's offense has been no easy task this season, with the Packers ranking first in the NFL in scoring (32.5 points per game). However, there are significant similarities between...

No sex for Aaron Rodgers, Olivia Munn on game days

            Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and actress Olivia Munn have been dating for most of the season. Rodgers is off to one of his best seasons of his 10-year NFL career, but it’s not because of what’s happening before the game. Munn was asked by Andy Cohen on Bravo’s Watch...

3 coordinators, 3 questions: Bills will be a challenge

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- With the Green Bay Packers coming off a Monday night game and operating on a short week to prepare for the Buffalo Bills, the team's coordinators did not have their typical day-after-game interviews with the media. But rather than skip our weekly Tuesday 3 Coordinators, 3 Questions post, it just had to be pushed back a few days. Here are three question-and-answer...

Hawk wants focus on Packers winning, not his playing time and future

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- A.J. Hawk was hesitant to meet with reporters. Given that the Green Bay Packers' ninth-year inside linebacker had gone from being a nearly every-down player through 11 games to playing just eight of 68 snaps Monday night, his significant role change put him in high demand from the media. Hawk was convinced by a member of the Packers public relations staff to talk...

Packers LB shuffle leaves less snaps for Hawk

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) A.J. Hawk doesn't want the attention. The Green Bay Packers veteran linebacker has shied away from it when he has been playing well. He certainly doesn't think his decline in playing time should become a focus, either. ''It's dumb to talk about me. We're 10-3,'' Hawk said Thursday. ''I was asked ... to just address it, but I didn't want to make anything about...

Kyle Orton hopes to upset the Packers again

            Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports Buffalo Bills quarterback Kyle Orton will try Sunday to repeat what he did in 2011 when he led the Kansas City Chiefs to a dramatic upset of the then-undefeated Green Bay Packers.

Packers: Why Sam Barrington is Green Bay’s Newest Defensive Weapon

The Green Bay Packers are a team all about drafting and developing players. And because of that, they tend to finish seasons strong as young players continue to improve and take the next step in their development. Just last Sunday, when the Packers upended the Patriots 26-21, the latest young player to breakout was inside linebacker Sam Barrington. Barrington, who was a seventh...

Thoughts from the south end zone on the Packers beating the Patriots

I was at Lambeau Field on Sunday to see the Packers beat the Patriots. What a game. I’m not sure there’s much more to be said about the win that hasn’t already been said, but I’ll try and offer up a few more nuggets on what I observed from my seats in the south end zone, section 138, row 44, seat 18. Before packing up our tailgating supplies and walking to the stadium, a...

Cory’s Corner: Temper expectations for A.J. Hawk

I will admit that I haven’t always been the biggest fan of A.J. Hawk. Granted, the expectations of living up to a fifth overall selection are pretty enormous. With that high of a pick, a good player just isn’t good enough. A team needs a dynamic body that can disrupt the running and passing game — in other words, a game changer. Hawk had a decent year last season. After Week...

Packers Not Prepared in Season Opening Loss

The Green Bay Packers are now 0-6 in their last six games against the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers, and a huge common theme of those losses is the Packers lagging behind in the coaching category. That was on display again Thursday night. It is inexcusable that the Packers had four months to prepare for this game and they came out so flat and illprepared. It would...

On The Attack – The Seattle Seahawks And Green Bay Packers Set To Clash With Opposing Styles

The Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers concluded the preseason in divergent manners. The Seahawks, previously a well-oiled monster truck, stumbled and bumbled their way through a head-scratching loss to the lowly regarded Oakland Raiders. In contrast, the Packers ended their preseason schedule with a thorough whipping of the Kansas City Chiefs, a playoff team in the last...

Green Bay Packers Run Defense Dominates against St. Louis Rams

Dom Capers has always said the most important thing for a defense to do is stop the run. If you can stop the run, then the offense has to become predictable and that’s when Capers can dip into his bag of blitzing tricks that eventually forces sacks and turnovers, the two things defenses need most. Yesterday, in the Packers second preseason game of 2014 against the St. Louis Rams...

20 Most Important Packers for 2014: #15 A.J. Hawk

There is nothing flashy about the way A.J. Hawk plays the game of football. He’s not a bruiser and he’s not the quickest. When the Packers selected Hawk with the fifth overall pick back in 2006 they thought they were getting a game changing linebacker. Instead, the Packers got a player that’s been durable, consistent and a good leader. While Hawk hasn’t been a “Ray Lewis”...

Peppers is now an outside linebacker in a 3-4 base scheme after spending the last four years as a defensive end in the Chicago Bears’ 4-3 system and before that in Carolina for eight seasons. “It’s fun.

Packers Training Camp Preview: Inside Linebackers

During the course of the offseason many believed the Packers needed to address the safety and inside linebacker positions. Ted Thompson selected safety, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in the first round and second year pro, Micah Hyde figures to see time there as well. To the surprise of many, Thompson ignored the inside linebacker position in free agency and the draft. Thompson ignoring the...

Most ordinary people would do just about anything in their power to avoid being tackled by an NFL player. Then again Green Bay Packers fans aren’t exactly ordinary people. From taking their shirts off and painting their chests in sub-zero temperatures to wearing ridiculous enormous foam cheese hats, Packers fans are some of the most passionate and borderline crazy fans in all of...
