Davante Adams ready to 'show the world' why Aaron Rodgers, Packers believe in him

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Davante Adams isn't allowing himself to be a rookie. Even if he wanted to, easing into the NFL was never an option for the Green Bay Packers' 21-year-old wide receiver. The Packers' plan of elevating Jarrett Boykin to the No. 3 spot on the depth chart was derailed first by performance and then by injury. That left Adams, Green Bay's second-round...

Notebook: Boykin likely out at least two games

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When Jarrett Boykin suffered a knee and groin injury in practice on Sept. 25, it wasn't believed to be too serious. However, the third-year wide receiver that began the season as No. 3 on the Green Bay Packers' depth chart could miss two more games. Boykin has been ruled out for the Packers' Thursday night game against the Minnesota Vikings. With Green...

Mike McCarthy, Green Bay Packers Need to Spread it Out Offensively

The Green Bay Packers are struggling on offense right now and as head coach Mike McCarthy searches for solutions, the answer is simple: spread em’ out. The Packers need to realize none of the tight ends on their roster are Jermichael Finley. Stop using Andrew Quarles and Richard Rodgers to threaten defenses on a regular basis, put in four wide receivers and spread out the defense...

Packers Aftermath: Packers at Lions

There was a time when the Green Bay Packers had the Detroit Lions’ number. It was as regular as the spring thaw and summer road construction. When the Packers played the Lions, it was a win. How much of a one sided affair was this rivalry? The Packers went 17-3 in the 2000’s against the Motor City. Three losses in a decade. In the 2010’s, they already have as many losses as...

Solitary Confinement: Sherman Redefines Shutdown Corner

t’s lonely being the best. Just ask Richard Sherman, who spent the week one game against Green Bay all by himself on the left side of the field. Well, not entirely. He had Jarrett Boykin to keep him company. Boykin was tasked as the sacrificial lamb, lined up against Sherman almost every snap. He ran his assigned routes but never received a pass from Aaron Rodgers. In fact, no...

Film Room: The Chargers’ blueprint for beating Richard Sherman

Week 1 against the Packers, Richard Sherman pitched a cornerback’s shutout: not only did he give up zero yards on zero catches, but he received zero targets as well. Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the Packers basically conceded wide receiver Jarrett Boykin as a sacrifice, lining him up on Sherman’s customary side of the field (the offense’s right/defense’s left) on every play...

Davante Adams is Overtaking Jarrett Boykin as Green Bay Packers’ Third Receiver

In Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks, rookie Davante Adams was nowhere to be found. But that was true about the majority of the Green Bay Packers’ offense. Yet in Week 2 against the New York Jets, Adams made his presence felt and is now poised to overtake Jarrett Boykin as the third receiver on the Packers depth chart. Adams, a second-round pick in last year’s draft, only...

What’s up with the Packers WRs?

It’s early, but I’m worried that the Packers might have a problem at wide receiver. Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb are fine (more on them in a minute). The rest of the receiving corp? Uffda. Yes, Jarrett Boykin was the sacrificial lamb lined up against Richard Sherman against the Seahawks, but Aaron Rodgers never even bothered looking in his direction. Boykin played well with...

Do You Agree with Hines Ward That You Can’t Be #1 CB if You Don’t Cover #1 WR?

When you’re on top, everyone will look for a chance to try to bring you down. Right now Seahawks CB Richard Sherman is in this boat. Sherman is at the height of his career and has the most critics of anyone. The latest is coming from ex-Steelers WR Hines Ward. Ward is now an analyst for NBC and had some choice words for Sherman after the Packers game. “Sherman is on the cover...

Hines Ward slams Sherman over not covering best receiver

The Seattle Seahawks completely dismantled the Green Bay Packers in the season opener last night, and Richard Sherman was one of the first to talk about being great after the game.

For the second consecutive season, the Green Bay Packers were forced to open up on the road against the defending NFC champions.
