I'll say it again! @LarryFitzgerald is on FIRE!!!!!

What’s wrong with the Packers offense this season?

What’s wrong with the Packers offense this season? Packer fans this season have been scratching their head as the historically potent Packers’ offense has fluttered and fallen far short of expectations.  Green Bay so far this season is 24th in total yards, gaining only 341 per game. Despite an up-and-down year overall rushing, they still rank 15th in yards per game, getting...

Packers Look to Halt Slide Tonight vs. Lions; Can They Do It?

We know the story, Packers fans: the woeful 1-7 Lions came limping into Lambeau Field a few weeks ago. It was just what the doctored ordered for a team underperforming at the time (that would be the Packers, not the Lions). Or so we thought. Instead, it was the Lions winning in Wisconsin for the first time in 24 years.That started the Lions on a three-game winning streak as they...

Jeff Janis Has Earned More Opportunities from Packers

There is no question that the Green Bay Packers need to get better play out of their wide receivers. Yes injuries have made an impact, but there have also been some disappointing performances especially from Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. When Jordy Nelson went down with a season-ending injury, in the preseason against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the idea was that Cobb and Adams would...

Jeff Janis Could Be Answer to Packers’ Big-Play Problem

For the past two seasons, Jeff Janis has been a bit of a folk hero in Green Bay. But now, with their offense struggling, Janis needs to make his potential a reality. Last night in Denver, the Packers were destroyed by the Broncos 29-10 in a game that showed just how much Green Bay misses Jordy Nelson. Green Bay could barely pick up a first down, let alone make a big play. Aaron Rodgers...

Three things for the Packers to work on during the bye week

The Green Bay Packers are undoubtedly one of the top three teams in the NFL. Aaron Rodgers is playing at a level only he is capable of playing. Even though they gave up over 500 passing yards against the San Diego Chargers, the Packers defense have kept them in many of their games. Even with all of the injuries, the Packers are 6-0 and tied for the best record in the NFC. However...

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb has been handling the lead as the top pass catcher for the team, but he said that he could get some much needed relief if Jeff Janis continues to develop. "I think he’s really close. He has to continue to do what he has been doing in practice and in games. And when he gets those opportunities, he has been able to make the plays for Aaron...
