Green Bay Packers vs. Buffalo Bills: 2014 Game 14 (Packers 13, Bills 21)
As always, this post it what it says it is, unfiltered initial reactions as the game progresses. I always find it entertaining to compare initial impressions from the heat of the moment with more measured thoughts with time to think about it. Everything is up for discussion.
The NFL leaders...
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...
Eddie Lacy: Lacy suffered a bruised hip in the 4th quarter of the Falcons game and surprisingly the Packers coaching staff decided to shut Lacy down as a precaution and let backup running back James Starks close out the game; considering how quickly the Falcons were scoring in the 2nd half and the inability of the defense to really stop the pass, putting your faith in...
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Green Bay running back Eddie Lacy was limited in practice Wednesday after bruising his hip in the Packers' victory this week over Atlanta.
Coach Mike McCarthy said he would monitor Lacy on the practice field Thursday. McCarthy has also said that he doesn't have high concern about the injury to the 2013 Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Lacy has 843 yards and seven...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Sam Shields was literally benched at the end of the Green Bay Packers' Monday night win over Atlanta. Removed from the game for the Falcons' final two offensive drives, Shields opted to spend part of the fourth quarter sitting on the bench wearing a beanie hat rather than standing along the sideline with his helmet in hand.
Davon House took over for Shields with...
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy wasn't thrilled with his defense's second-half performance during Monday night's 43-37 victory over the Atlanta Falcons, and he really wasn't interested in rehashing the group's collapse less than 24 hours later, either.
With a short week and what he sees as a very difficult road game Sunday at Buffalo - a place where the...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Allowing 465 yards and 37 points to the Atlanta Falcons made Monday night's game one that the Green Bay Packers' defense will want to forget. In the case of head coach Mike McCarthy, the defensive failures were something he didn't even want to address.
"I'll tell you what, I'm not going to sit here and talk about defense all day," McCarthy said at his Tuesday press...
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...
The Green Bay Packers finally get an appearance on Monday Night Football this season as they host the Atlanta Falcons to kick off the December portion of their schedule. The Packers are 6-0 at home and are playing some inspiring football over the past month. With big wins over the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots, the Packers must be taken seriously and especially...
Have cause, will travel. Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House made the trek up to Escanaba Michigan last week to help out in the local Toys for Tots campaign.
House was at the Escanaba Walmart taking pictures with fans and signing autographs. Anyone could donate a new unwrapped toy, cash or even a gift card to Toys For Tots in exchange for an autograph. The toy drive is a joint...
The defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers drafted 10 players in 2011. With the release of Derek Sherrod on Monday, general manager Ted Thompson’s seventh draft class is down to just two players. Second-round pick Randall Cobb is one of the best young receivers in the league and fourth-round cornerback Davon House has potential. […]

NFL draft experts often say it’s not fair to grade a particular draft class on draft day. It’s better to reassess the picks three years into their careers.
Much has already been written about the perceived failures of the Green Bay Packers’ general Manager Ted Thompson and his maligned 2011 draft class. With the former 2011 first-round pick, tackle...
The Green Bay Packers sit at 5-3 at the halfway point of their season, which is a very reasonable record with the kind of schedule they faced. This included trips to the two hardest places to win in the NFL.
The second half of the season is a much easier schedule with five of their eight games at Lambeau Field. Everything the Packers want is still right there in front of them. Here...

You could say that bye week came at the right time for the Green Bay Packers. They are currently dealing with injuries, and after a blowout loss to the Saints in New Orleans, the team needs to scatter for the bye week.
They need to rest and get healthy.
Also, they need to forget about this game. They can burn the film and move on because there’s not...
Well, that escalated quickly.
The Green Bay Packers saw their four-game
winning streak come to a crashing halt Sunday night as they were blown out by the New Orleans Saints 44-23 at the Superdome Sunday night.
Here is who played well and who left some things on the field in the Packers’ loss
WR Randall Cobb
Cobb is going to earn himself a nice paycheck next season and...
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.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- After what must have been an enjoyable film review following their blowout win, the three Green Bay Packers coordinators broke down the pros and cons (mostly pros) of a 38-17 victory over the Carolina Panthers.
Here are three question-and-answer highlights from each coordinator:

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Five things to watch for in the Week 7 Sunday afternoon matchup when the Green Bay Packers (4-2) face the Carolina Panthers (3-2-1) at Lambeau Field:
1. 'Excessive reps' in practice to stop read-option
Mike McCarthy tried to make sure his defense would be ready Sunday when Cam Newton inevitably runs the read-option early and often. Newton kept the ball 10 times...
This week’s scoop will be a short and sweet one. The Carolina Panthers and their quarterback Cam Newton are in the house and the Green Bay Packers better be on full alert.
As much as we all know what Newton’s running capabilities are, and the Packers do as well, they still seem to struggle with the obvious. Mobile quarterbacks have been the Packers’ kryptonite for the last...
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'...

ILB Joe Mays (IR-DFR) is having the screws taken out of his injured wrist this week, but there isn’t a time frame for his return as of now. (Adam Caplan)

HC Mike Pettine mentioned that they had no plans to take a quarterback at No. 4 overall this past year, but they did have a first-round grade on Jaguars QB Blake Bortles.
“There wasn’t any quarterback in the discussion for us at four, but we certainly had a first-round grade on him,” Pettine told WKRK-FM, via Daryl Ruiter of CBS Cleveland.
It's time for this week's edition of Packers Mailbag. Soon after Green Bay's game against the Miami Dolphins, look for the form to submit questions for next week's mailbag.
Question: Paul, Is the defense that much more improved over the last two weeks or are the Bears and Vikings not good teams to judge the defense by? - Gene, Eau Claire
Answer: Don't forget about Week 3. Even though...
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...
