Packers vs. Bills: Saturday Scoop

The Green Bay Packers get set to hit the road this weekend for the first of two straight games away from the comforts of Lambeau Field.  First up?  The Buffalo Bills in western New York.  The Packers have never won there.  Ever.  History may have nothing to do with this current Packers team, but to me, it counts for something.  Buffalo is hardly any type of juggernaut this...

Packers 2012, 2013 Draft Classes Making Up for Past Mistakes

Randall Cobb.  Davon House.  Nick Perry.  Casey Hayward.  Mike Daniels.  That’s it, folks.  That’s the full list of players left on the Green Bay Packers roster from the 2011 and 2012 drafts.  Of the 18 players that Ted Thompson selected (players you would hope are just sliding in to the prime of their careers) five remain.  A stud on offense (Cobb) a stud on defense...

Offense rolls, Packers D shines in win over Eagles

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The offense keeps rolling for the Green Bay Packers early in home games. Against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, the defense and return game got in on the fun, too. Aaron Rodgers passed for 341 yards and three touchdowns, running back Eddie Lacy accounted for two scores, and the Packers' defense stuffed the up-tempo Eagles in a 53-20 win. Wideout Jordy Nelson...

NFL Notes: Jets, Packers, Texans, & Vikings

Jets Rich Cimini of ESPN New York believes the Jets will end up with a top-five draft pick once the season has concluded. Cimini mentions that a quarterback, wide receiver and cornerback could all be in play for their first-round pick next year. The Jets could end up using newly acquired WR Percy Harvin as a “downfield threat.” (Rich Cimini) Packers Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee...

Shields and Williams out? House, Hayward say no CB drop-off

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's either the Green Bay Packers or the New England Patriots with the best group of cornerbacks in the NFL. That's how Davon House sees it. However, Green Bay's prideful cornerback room hasn't had much chance to show where it ranks. But with starters Sam Shields and Tramon Williams missing both Wednesday and Thursday's practice, Sunday's game against the Carolina...

The underappreciated Tramon Williams

Hello everyone, it has been quite some time since I have written here, but as Marshall Mathers once said it feels so good to be back.   After last offseason the Packers had a young player that was approaching free agency at the cornerback position. He was a young, ascending player that finished the season strong. He emerged as an undrafted free agent in 2010, and had put together...

While the Packers laid an egg against the Lions, one thing that the Packers have been able to do a good job of is staying relatively injury free.  While the injury list hasn’t gotten smaller, it’s mostly filled with players with minor injuries, in fact there were no players who did not participate on practice on Wednesday in some form or another.

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. But if anyone wants to classify the early days of this new defensive experiment...

Green Bay Packers Roster Has Depth and Talent to be Super Bowl Contenders

This past Saturday, the Green Bay Packers finalized their 53-man roster and after a full evaluation, it is easy to see that the Packers roster is good enough to contend for the Super Bowl in 2014. With all the variables in the NFL, it would be stupid to predict a champion right now so I won’t. But I will say with absolute confidence is that if the Packers avoid injuries, they...

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: The Davon House Conundrum

There is probably no better poster child for the way that the Green Bay Packers build their team than Tramon Williams.  Tramon was an undrafted free agent out of Louisiana Tech signed by the Houston Texans in 2006.  He was released in the final cuts.  Williams was signed by the Packers.  He secured a roster spot in 2007 and became the third corner in nickel sets with established...
