Stock Watch: Who’s trending up and down in Green Bay

UP S Micah Hyde: The Packers used their first round pick on safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and it says a lot about Micah Hyde that he has been able to stave off the rookie thus far in training camp. Hyde has received the majority of first team snaps and made some big plays in camp, including a pass breakup on a deep ball to Jordy Nelson in day two. Hyde has also been the starting punt...

Davon House Gives Packers Incredible Depth at Cornerback

Two years ago, Davon House was in the middle of the best training camp of his career and if all went as planned he was on his way towards earning a starting position. Yet, it all went wrong when he injured himself against the San Diego Chargers in the first preseason game of the year that season for the Green Bay Packers. House missed a good chunk of the season and missed his chance...

Full House: Is Davon House Guaranteed a Roster Spot?

Entering his fourth season, Davon House is once again showing us why he is the perfect example of newly-extended Ted Thompson’s “draft and develop,” strategy. It was only two years ago when House was playing so well in training camp that many thought he would claim the No. 1 spot on the depth chart at a position that needed to be revitalized. But, after an injury in the preseason...

Surviving Sunday: Packers News, Notes and Links for the Football Deprived

Surviving Sundays with no Packers football As training camp approaches, I feel really good about the Packers cornerbacks this season. It’s a deep group, and the depth includes a nice mix of players. There are proven players (Tramon Williams), good players still on the upswing (Sam Shields) and talented players who have yet to establish themselves, but have still achieved some type...

5 Packer Veterans Who Could be on the Roster Bubble

  During the next couple of months the Packers will have to whittle down their roster from the 90 players they currently have to just 53. The Packers lost a few players to free agency, but they also signed free agents, Julius Peppers and Letroy Guion, selected 9 players in May’s draft, have numerous players coming back from injury, and they also have a penchant for keeping a few...

House waits his turn in crowded cornerbacks room

The Green Bay Packers cornerback room is again flush with talent. If Casey Hayward returns to form, the jousting for playing time will hit fever pitch in less than a month. The Packers return nearly all of their cornerbacks from a year ago and drafted Baylor's Demetri Goodson in the sixth round of May's NFL draft to round out the 10-player room. Meanwhile, Davon House waits...

I’m going to admit right away that this might be a little deep of a conversation for some.  The competition to see who the 6th defensive back on the field in dime situations is probably not something resides in the consciousness of the majority of Packers fans.  I’m going to try and sway you to think that it’s more important than you think.  Not only is it more important...

Next year's Packers free agency class

While the Packers are not done compiling their 2014 roster, it is not too early to start looking at next year's crop of free agents. With over $16 million in cap space to spare, in addition to signing some free agents and allocating some money for rookie deals, the Packers may want to think of extending some of their upcoming free agents rather than risk letting them walk in...

Must see GIF: Niners were mere inches from playing OT

Sunday at Lambeau Field was a back-and-forth battle between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers. It turned out to be a “last team with the ball” type of situation. True to that form, the Niners’ Phil Dawson nailed a 33-yard field goal as the buzzer sounded to lock down the 23-20 victory. But just how close was this game to heading into overtime?

How close the Packers were to overtime

Sunday at Lambeau Field was a back-and-forth battle between the Packers and the San Francisco 49ers.

True to that form, the Niners’ Phil Dawson nailed a 33-yard field goal as the buzzer sounded to lock...

One Play Does Not Decide the Game

Football is a long game made up of many, many plays. This afternoon's disappointing loss was 124 total plays - 63 for the Niners, 61 for the Pack. It is easy to say those two extra Niner plays like maybe - the (one of many) Kaepernick scramble in the 4th quarter on 3rd and 8 when Jarrett Bush failed to contain thus allowing a first down and the nearly blocked field goal by Davon...

But it wouldn’t have happened if Packers cornerback Davon House’s arms had been just a couple inches closer together. It’s clear the ball went straight through a leaping House’s arms. House, who...

Packers better at the game within the game

Brandon Marshall is overrated. Always felt that way. Sure, he looks the part. He is big, strong, fast, and athletic. But like his teammate, Jay Cutler, they do not seem to have that fire in their bellies necessary to win consistently. Which is partly why I find Marshall's propensity for brash, outspoken rants and opinions to be curious. It's...
