Paul Imig's Dec. 23 Packers mailbag

It's time for this week's edition of Packers Mailbag . . . Should we be worried about the offense being somewhat flat again this week?

A Way To Make Packers Offense Even Better

The Green Bay Packers already have the best offense in the NFL with the best quarterback in the league, perhaps the best wide receiver duo, an offensive line playing out of its mind and a bull at running back. The Packers rank first in the NFL averaging 32.5 points per game and are first in Football Outsiders’ offensive DVOA, which measures offensive efficiency.  So how can the...

Is it Time to Unleash the Jeff Janis?

Thursday night saw a lot of firsts for the Packers.  Julius Peppers had his first Lambeau Leap.  Davante Adams scored his first NFL touchdown.  Letroy Guion recorded his first sack as a Green Bay Packer.  One of the other firsts that I noticed, and one that excites me greatly, was the first career reception for 2014 7th round pick Jeff Janis.  Janis is an extremely athletic...

Packers need to build on momentum

Two weeks ago, and the Green Bay Packers appeared to be circling the drain and were at the crossroads as a team. Rise to the challenge and finish out the first half of the NFC North match-ups strong, or collapse in epic fashion. The team heads south next Sunday to face Joe Philbin and his Miami Dolphins. While the Dolphins are not exactly juggernauts of the AFC, they are 2-2 and...

NFL Notes: Browns, Packers, Panthers, Saints, & Texans

  Browns Pat McManamon of ESPN writes that it would be “absolute lunacy” for the Browns not to try and re-sign QB Brian Hoyer if he continues to play like he has. Packers Rookie WR Jeff Janis could be active for the first time in his young career given that Jarrett Boykin is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.

Green Bay Watch: Jeff Janis Time?

Jeff HayesWill they finally play Janis this week?Can’t hurt right? When Jeff Janis was drafted in the seventh round he was viewed by many as a project. He needed to polish his route running skills and maybe add a little strength to go along with that open field speed. The problem is the Packers couldn’t cut him and designate him to the practice squad in fear of another team picking...

Grading the Packers Rookies: Preseason Week 4

Game 4 is often called the Super Bowl for those players looking to make one last impression before the 53-man cutdown; often times game 4 is the one time that some players get to play in a game and for other it might be the last time they see a NFL football field.

Packers keep three QBs, trim roster to 53

The Green Bay Packers have apparently decided that one year of poor quarterback depth was enough. On Saturday, when all 32 NFL teams needed to trim their rosters to the league mandated 53 players, sources within the organization have told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the team will indeed keep both of their backup signal callers in Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzein.

Packers rookies Janis, Elliott bolster roster bids

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The rookies who have made two of the strongest impressions this preseason for the Green Bay Packers weren't at the top of the team's draft board.

Names to watch: If the Browns go WR shopping

The Cleveland Browns have to finalize their regular-season roster by Saturday. That process is more than just cutting players and eventually putting together a 10-man practice squad, starting Sunday. The Browns are very much still building, and this final cutdown offers possibilities via trade and waiver claims. One place it seems the Browns have to look is wide receiver. 2013 NFL...

Janis, Elliott likely secure roster spots in Packers' preseason finale

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For two players with nicknames as impressive as what Jeff Janis and Jayrone Elliott have been given by their Green Bay Packers teammates, it might have been obvious before Thursday's preseason finale that the two of them would be part of the 53-man roster this season. But if there was even the slightest amount of doubt that either could be passed over, the performances...

Grading the Packers Rookies: Preseason Week 3

With game 3 out of the way, a lot of serious grading and analysis can start; while teams likely play a lot of vanilla offense and defense in the 1st two preseason games, game 3 is traditionally a warm-up for the starters and as such a full game plan will be on display.  On the flip side, with such a loaded team as the Packers, a lot of the drafted rookies saw a drop in their snaps...

Packer Rookies: The Studs and the Duds on Offense

Last week I took a look at the players on the defensive side of the ball who have impressed and those who have disappointed, and now it’s time to look at the Packers rookies on offense.
