Have the Green Bay Packers safeties, Morgan Burnett and M.D. Jennings, played well this season. No they haven’t. Oh, wait, coach Darren Perry says they have.
The Green Bay Packers are suffering from an injury epidemic. Cornerback Micah Hyde missed Thursday’s practice, leaving the team very thin in the secondary.
Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne lit up the Green Bay Packers secondary on Sunday. The sad thing is he wasn’t even at full strength.
Two starting spots remain up in the air in the Green Bay Packers secondary entering week one of the NFL season. Not eve the players know what’s going on.
This is just speculation, but the fact that the Green Bay Packers lost starting strong safety Morgan Burnett to a season-ending ACL tear and the San Francisco 49ers released Micheal Lewis, the team’s opening-day starter at strong safety, seems like a nice coincidence. Lewis had a falling out with coach Mike Singletary last week and […]
Ted Thompson may not be done tweaking the Green Bay Packers roster yet. The Packers brought in former Tampa Bay returner Clifton Smith and former Jacksonville safety Gerald Alexander for workouts, Tuesday. Smith was Pro Bowl return man for the Buccaneers in 2008 and has career averages of 28.3 yards on kickoff returns and 12.1 […]
Much has been made of the games the Green Bay Packers lost to the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers, as well as the playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals, last season. The main culprit in those losses was the Packers’ pass coverage, or lack thereof. The Packers could have improved the area in the offseason […]
The Green Bay Packers love them some Jarrett Bush. And what’s not to love? It’s like inserting your favorite slapstick comedy right into an NFL game! Jarrett Bush is the Lt. Frank Drebin of the Green Bay Packers. Despite bungling just about everything imaginable, he still manages to live and catch the bad guy, or […]
The Green Bay Packers have several glaring holes this offseason – offensive line, cornerback and safety among them – but I’ve been wavering as to which is the most troublesome. Offensive tackle is the obvious answer, but the cornerback position is an increasing concern on par with, if not greater than, the tackle position. The […]
Make no mistake about it, the Green Bay Packers are in the cornerback market. Al Harris is rehabilitating a major knee injury and behind Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams, who ended the season as the starters, the Packers are thin. There has been speculation the Packers might be interested in acquiring San Diego’s Antonio Cromartie, […]
The Green Bay Packers defense was exposed by the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The NFL’s second-ranked unit fell apart against the vaunted Cardinals passing attack, much the same way they did three weeks earlier against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s now pretty clear why these things have happened. The middle of the Packers defense if vulnerable […]
To quote The Jeffrey Lebwoski, the plan has crashed into the mountain. More painfully one sided than the close score suggests, yesterday’s Green Bay Packers’ 31-24 defeat to the lowly Cincinnati Bengals exposed more weaknesses and vulnerabilities for the Packers. The Packers’ offensive line play was even shakier than last week and aside from a […]
With training camp beginning at the end of the month, I am starting to get excited for the upcoming Green Bay Packers season. Since we’re in the down time between the Packers mini-camp and training camp, I figured now is as good a time as any to get you excited too. There are some very […]
Anthony Smith, whom the Green Bay Packers picked up as a free agent this offseason, may find himself in the hunt for a starting safety spot when training camp opens. Smith has been lining up with the Packers No. 1 defense during OTAs, which means absolutely nothing other than last year’s starters, Atari Bigby and […]
Every week the Green Bay Packers are starting to look more and more like a team that simply won’t live up to expectations. Yesterday, the Packers lost yet another close game to an inferior opponent, this time, 28-27 to the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers should be better than this. Maybe it’s time to accept that […]
Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby finally returned to the practice field Thursday, after being sidelined with a balky hamstring since the week two game against the Detroit Lions. Bigby didn’t do a hell of a lot on his first day back – going through “limited practice” – but has a chance to play this […]
