Cory’s Corner: Packers’ season depends on stopping the run

The Packers have reached the halfway point of the season. The moment the 2014 schedule was released on April 23, I expected a 6-2 mark at the bye. Nobody could’ve predicted that B.J. Raji and Don Barclay would be lost for the season, but a 5-3 record after playing three of the first four games on the road isn’t bad. However, that doesn’t mean Green Bay doesn’t have its problems...

Cory’s Corner: Ted Thompson must reinvest in Aaron Rodgers

Coming into the preseason, the Packers were pegged to have the best offensive line of the Aaron Rodgers era. However, since then guard/tackle Don Barclay blew out his right ACL and is done for the season. Center JC Tretter suffered a “significant knee injury” during the third preseason game on Aug. 22 and will be out at least eight weeks. And in the season opener at Seattle,...

Week 1: Packers Instant Reaction

The best team in the NFL won today and they did it in an impressive way. If the Green Bay Packers want to win the Super Bowl, they have to change a few things. Otherwise, they will not be able to beat teams like the Seattle Seahawks or the San Francisco 49ers. There is enough time to correct mistakes, however, it will not be easy.   The Packers have suffered two injuries. TE Richard...

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 the top...

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.
