Moving Mulumba Makes Sense

The season-ending foot injury suffered by Sam Barrington leaves the Packers very thin at inside linebacker. After part-timer Clay Matthews and Nate Palmer, only rookie Jake Ryan is left at the position. That is, unless the coaches decide to switch Andy Mulumba from the outside – a move that would make sense for a number of reasons. One is that Mulumba is currently sixth on the...

Takeaways From the Packers First Preseason Game

Takeaways from the Packers preseason game vs. the Patriots Starting offense hasn’t lost a step, Lacy looks healthy and played great. LT David Bahktiari struggled all 1st quarter and allowed a sack. Offense was fine without McCarthy calling the plays, although they struggled a lot in the red zone and couldn’t come away with a TD in the 1st quarter. Packers allow huge run from...

Andy Mulumba Competes In An Already Crowded Linebacker Core

Planning how the outside linebackers core will look this year has become quite the task for Ted Thompson. Imagine Thompson, at the wheel of a minivan, trying to cram Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Julius Peppers, Mike Neal, Jayrone Elliott, and Adrian Hubbard into the vehicle for a roadtrip to the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, there might not be room for Andy Mulumba to ride along. But...

On the Bubble: The Linebackers

As the Packers approach training camp, like every team, there are players who are considered on the “roster bubble.” These players don’t have any guarantees and need to fight for their position or face the possibility of starting a new career.

Elliott Will Be Tough To Supplant

For each of the past six seasons, an undrafted free agent outside linebacker has made the 53-man roster. From Cyril Obiozor to Frank Zombo to Vic So’oto to Dezman Moses to Andy Mulumba to Jayrone Elliott, it’s been as much a part of summer as a Jimmy Buffet concert. Will this unlikely streak continue? My early guess is no. In other summers, players as talented as LSU’s Jermauria...

Who is in Danger of Losing Their Roster Spot

Now that the Draft is finished, it comes time to look at the Green Bay roster as it stands right now. If you factor in the eight picks and the one or two undrafted guys that always make the team, that ends up leaving some guys out in the cold. There are five guys who are now sleeping a little less easier now that the draft is done. It may be their last chance to make this team, and...

2014 Packers Position Group Analysis – Outside Linebackers

Overview: When I look at this group of players, it’s quite shocking to see that it comprises three first round draft picks and one second round pick. While the Packers’ outside linebackers are no slouches, you’d expect a little more punch from those levels of draft picks. That said, it’s hard to get too down on a position group that won a Super Bowl with the likes of Erik...

Notebook: McCarthy denies 4-3 defense growing pains

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Two games into the era of Dom Capers running a 4-3 defense with the Green Bay Packers has had mixed results. Perhaps that was somewhat expected by Capers and head coach Mike McCarthy considering that the team opted to keep it hidden during training camp and not use it in preseason.
