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...

Are the Packers among the NFL’s ‘elite’ teams?

If this years season has taught us anything about the state of today’s NFL it is this: there are elite teams and there is everyone else. From Week 1 to the Conference Championships last Sunday, it is clear that a few teams stood head and shoulders above everyone else. In the AFC it was always the Broncos. New England may have the allure of a championship organization but in the...

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? Just ask the Packers’...

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...

In what was a so-close-yet-so-far moment in the closing seconds of the San Francisco 49ers’ 23-20 playoff win over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday, Packers cornerback Davon House appeared to come inches away from blocking Phil Dawson’s game-winning field goal as time expired.

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...

Here’s how close the 49ers were to (maybe) not beating the Packers (Photo)

The 49ers are headed to the next round of the playoffs thanks to Phil Dawson, a.k.a. Not David Akers, coming through in the clutch with a game-winning field goal as time expired. 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...

Thanks For Nothing

How little has the 2011 draft class contributed to the Packers this season? Put it this way, fourth-round pick Davon House, who was benched on Sunday, has played the most snaps of the 10 prospects selected by GM Ted Thompson 2 1/2 years ago. Derek Sherrod (1st round) was just activated from the PUP list, Randall Cobb (2nd) has been on IR since the middle of October, Alex Green (3rd...

Packers DBs prepare to go up against pushy Bears WRs

Receivers in general, they say, get away with too much. That's football in 2013. But the Chicago Bears' wide receivers — those two large, physical ones on the perimeter? They truly know how to push the envelope. "Some of it is really, really blatant that you wonder, 'How do they get away with this?'" Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams said...

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...

The Crowded Packers Secondary.

The Packers arguably have the most depth at the corner position in all of football, but now coach McCarthy and his staff face the decision of who to start and who to use as the nickel and dime corners. This is what we like to call a good problem. With rookie Micah Hyde coming off his best game and Davon House getting better each week the secondary has become crowded. With Casey...
