Depleted Receiving Corps Greatly Affecting the Packers Offense

It was not that long ago that the Green Bay Packers offense was unstoppable. During the 2011 season, the Packers put up yards (6,482) and points (560) at an unprecedented rate. A ridiculous rate. A rate which resulted in an MVP season for Aaron Rodgers, a 15-1 regular season record, and homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. When the Packers offense took the field that season...

Packers Training Camp Preview: Wide Receivers

When the Green Bay Packers won their fourth Lombardi Trophy four years ago they had one of the best receiving corps in the NFL.

Packers Offense: Where Are They Now?

After living in Wisconsin for my entire life and growing up watching the Packers, a lot of my idols I use to enjoy watching are now retired. Their professional football careers may be over, but many of them have moved on to other careers. Much like a high school reunion, we get to see where all these players ended up. With that being said, here’s the first installment of “Where...

Donald Driver: Texans WR Andre Johnson 'isn't going anywhere'

The future of Andre Johnson remains unclear, but one Green Bay legend is certain the Texans star receiver will eventually return to the practice field in Houston. Johnson questioned last month if the Texans were still the right fit for him, and he was a no-show at the team's minicamp last week. Former Packers reciever and Houston native Donald Driver knows what Johnson is going through...

Power Ranking the Packers’ Wide Receivers

Despite losing Greg Jennings, James Jones and Donald Driver over the past 2 years, the Packers still have one of the deepest receiving groups in the NFL. They may not be as top heavy at the position as they were in 2011 when they had Jennings, Jones, Jordy Nelson, and Randall Cobb, all of whom could start on most teams in the league, but all 10 of the receivers on their current...

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Wide Receiver Summer Battle

The first thing that I’d like to do here on Football Friday is voice my encouragement towards Jonathan Franklin.  By all accounts he was a wonderful human being and I, for one really felt like he was talented.  The short length of his career shouldn’t affect his ability to have a positive impact on the world.  I am happy for Jonathan that he has such a positive attitude and...

Undrafted rookie issued No. 80 Packers jersey last worn by Driver

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Donald Driver has a street named after him, a key to the city of Green Bay and his own statue. There was even Donald Driver Day in the state of Wisconsin on Feb. 6, 2013. But one thing that Driver doesn't have is his No. 80 jersey retired by the Green Bay Packers. Therefore, sooner or later, someone else was bound to wear that number. That day is here. Undrafted...

A final look at some 7th round options

A seventh round draft pick, simply put, has little to no guarantee of making a roster. They are one level ahead of priority free agents. Nevertheless, they have value in today’s NFL. Names such as, Donald Driver, Shannon Sharpe and Marques Colston were all picked in the seventh round and have established more in their careers than most higher round picks. Atlanta has three seventh...

Brandin Cooks a First Round Option for Packers?

Over the course of the past two off-seasons the Packers have lost Donald Driver to retirement; Greg Jennings and James Jones to free agency. Those types of losses to the wide receiver position would typically cripple teams passing attacks. Thanks to Ted Thompson that wasn’t the case. Thompson selected Jordy Nelson in the second round when his team already had Driver, Jennings and...

The best WR based on draft position in Packers’ history

The Packers, at least recently, have been known to be able to draft a largely overlooked talent and develop him to become a great NFL wide receiver. So, when you’re talking about the best wide receiver to have ever been drafted by the Packers based on his draft position, there is a large field of competition. However, when looking at the career numbers that this group of low round...

When referring to the Minnesota Vikings, we often talk about the lack of defense or the mediocre quarterbacking. Mentioned of course is the young wide receiving core led by an injury prone veteran. Questions revolving the health of Greg Jennings, who is nowhere near the receiver that took over for the Packers’ Donald Driver. The front flipping former Cincinnati Bengal Jerome Simpson...

Packers fans at this point would probably say that the 49ers are their biggest rival besides the Chicago Bears.  Unfortunately since the 2010 34-16 game (the Donald Driver incredible TD game) the Packers “rivalry” with the 9ers has resembled the type of rivalry that the Packers have with the Vikings. One sided.  The Packers were physically dominated both times they played the...
