The 5-2 Green Bay Packers travel to N'awlins Sunday evening to take on the 2-4 Saints. Despite the records, the Saints are currently two-point favorites given that their two wins are at home this season, and generally the Saints do win at home. It's a tough place for opponents. Even for a team as hot as the Packers, who thoroughly demolished the Carolina Panthers last weekend at...

It was more than likely the final tune up for the Green Bay Packers’ starters and they didn’t disappoint in Green Bay’s 31-21 victory over the Oakland Raiders Friday night.
The starting offense came out with a blistering opening drive featuring a brisk pace and no-huddle formations. The result was a one yard Eddie Lacy touchdown and that was it for last season’s offensive...

Packers WR Jeff Janis makes a catch during training camp practice on Wednesday, August 6. If you caught any of the Green Bay Packers pre-season opener vs. the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night, you might have accidently thought that you had tuned in to a live shot on The Weather Channel.

For starters, gone is...

The third installment of my Packer positional power rankings moves back to the defensive side of the ball, and examines what was the Packers’ weakest position last season, safety.
The Packers have addressed their deficiency at safety this offseason by drafting Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in the 1st round and by moving cornerback Micah Hyde to safety, at least for the time being.
Last season the Packers were the only team that failed to get an interception from their safeties. That's right; the Packers went the whole season without getting an interception from, Morgan Burnett, M.D. Jennings, Jerron McMillian, Sean Richardson and Chris Banjo. Fun Fact: Jarrett Bush had more interceptions (1) than those five players.The Packers gave Morgan Burnett an extension...
