Packers Defense Stars In Return to Practice

The Green Bay Packers returned to practice on Monday and were moved inside the Don Hutson center.  It was not open to the public but media still attended and judging by the reports from the sidelines, the Packers picked up where they left off after Saturday’s 21-7 win over the St. Louis Rams. Among some of the more noteworthy items was that the first team offense was the same...

Five under the radar Packers who are impressing at training camp

Packers WR Jeff Janis makes a catch during training camp practice on Wednesday, August 6. If you caught any of the Green Bay Packers pre-season opener vs. the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night, you might have accidently thought that you had tuned in to a live shot on The Weather Channel. A driving rainstorm, not the players on the field, was the dominant storyline throughout much...

Derek Sherrod Shows Potential In Green Bay Packers’ Preseason Opener

One of the significant injuries the Green Bay Packers have suffered so far during training camp was to versatile backup offensive line Don Barclay, who suffered a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season. It was a huge loss because Barclay was a 16-game starter at right tackle last season and had the ability to backup both tackle and guard spots. Therefore, when the Packers...

With Barclay hurt, time for former first-round pick Sherrod to 'step up'

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Mike McCarthy believed the offensive line of the 2014 Green Bay Packers had a chance to be the best group in his nine seasons as head coach. That theory will be tested after the offensive line's most versatile player, Don Barclay, tore his ACL in practice this week. While Barclay wasn't expected to be a Week 1 starter for the Packers this season, he was...

Barclay’s Knee Injury Hurts

The season-ending knee injury suffered by Don Barclay on Tuesday leaves the Packers a lot thinner on the offensive line. While tackle Derek Sherrod and guard Lane Taylor have looked decent in training camp, the jury is very much still out on both young players. Sherrod has struggled at times to recover vs. inside counters […]

Without Barclay, Packers’ o-line still has depth

The Packers are down a security blanket. News came out of Green Bay today that Don Barclay’s knee injury, feared by many to be season-ending, was just that. This is a major shot at the depth of the Packers offensive line as Barclay was an above average player at every position on the line. That being said, the Packers can manage without him. It appeared the Packers would be set...

Green Bay Packers lose offensive lineman for entire 2014 season

The Green Bay Packers boast one of the deepest and most talented offensive units in the NFL. One area they are not so sharp in however is the offensive line. Last season Football Outsiders ranked Green Bay’s line 26th overall in pass protection. Just imagine what quarterback Aaron Rodgers would be able to do if he had a line like Denver’s… I know, right?

Offensive Linemen Musical Chairs, 2014 Edition Round 2

A couple months ago I wrote an article listing talking about the game of musical chairs that the Packers play every year with the offensive line.  Just a recap, there probably isn’t another group of players less understood and paradoxically more diverse and similar than offensive linemen.  However with the ACL injury to Don Barclay likely costing him the entire year, I thought...

Packers Training Camp Preview: Offensive Line

The Green Bay Packers offensive line ranked 24th last year in sacks allowed. Some of that can be contributed to Aaron Rodgers holding onto the ball too long. Some of it can be contributed to the fact Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn were gun shy and don’t have the best pocket presence. Some of it can be contributed to the fact that they had a rookie left tackle, and a fairly inexperienced...

Offensive Linemen Musical Chairs, 2014 Edition: who stays, who goes?

Outside of special teams, nothing is more confusing, more obfuscated or more esoteric than offensive line play; We all know that Joe Thomas is supposed to be one of the best offensive linemen in the NFL right now, but do you or I really know that?  I’ve never watched a game specifically focused on Thomas (which would of course require me to watch a Browns game…..so no thanks...

Green Bay Packers Won’t Exercise Derek Sherrod’s Fifth-Year Option for 2015

NFL Draft Series 2014: Grading the Packers' 2011 draft
