Clifton, Colledge Likely To Start

It looks like the Green Bay Packers will open their game with the Chicago Bears tonight with the same starting offensive line they opened the season with. Both Chad Clifton and Daryn Colledge practiced with the No. 1 unit on Saturday and will start barring a last-minute setback. Clifton has been battling a knee injury […]

Colledge Sprains Knee

Green Bay Packers left guard Daryn Colledge was added to the team’s injury report on Friday with a sprained knee. Rookie Bryan Bulaga practiced with the first team in Colledge’s spot. Left tackle Chad Clifton, meanwhile, returned to practice and was a full participant. It seemed like Clifton’s balky knee would keep him out of […]

Bulaga Taking Over For Clifton Now Seems Inevitable

Even though Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy insisted veteran Chad Clifton is his starting left tackle earlier in the week, it now seems inevitable rookie Bryan Bulaga will take over for Clifton full time, this season. That will probably happen Monday night when the Packers take on the Chicago Bears. Clifton was removed from […]

Bulaga Outplays Clifton, But McCarthy Stands By The Veteran

Bryan Bulaga

Rookie Bryan Bulaga replaced an ineffective Chad Clifton at left tackle for the Green Bay Packers midway through the second quarter of the team’s win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. After the game Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the move was made because Clifton was suffering from a knee injury, but also noted Clifton […]

Packers Do What They’re Supposed To With The Bills

Clay Matthews

I’d like to say we learned a lot about the Green Bay Packers after they defeated the Buffalo Bills 34-7 on Sunday, but I can’t. The Packers let the Bills hang around in the first half, but ultimately did exactly what they were supposed to do — dominate one of the worst teams in the […]

Underwood, Neal Remain Questionable, Colledge Joins Them

It looks increasingly likely the Green Bay Packers will be without key contributors at two of their thinnest positions this weekend, as cornerback Brandon Underwood and defensive end Mike Neal are listed as questionable on the injury report. Underwood, who will be the Packers nickel or dime back when he returns, has been out with […]

Packers Not Exactly Dominant In Season-Opening Win

Kevin Kolb

Maybe it’s time to table the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl talk for a bit. The defense, led by linebacker Clay Matthews, was the biggest reason the Packers were able to escape Philadelphia with a 27-20 win over the Eagles. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense wasn’t close to firing on all cylinders, but […]

Packers Offensive Line Has Become A Strength

No one would have considered the Green Bay Packers offensive line a strength last season, particularly in the first half. Part of the reason was the ineffectiveness of right tackle Allen Barbre, who was eventually replaced by Mark Tauscher. Another factor was injuries. Chad Clifton missed several games, forcing left guard Daryn Colledge and later […]

Observations From Packers 17-13 Loss To Chiefs

Arrowhead Stadium

The Green Bay Packers fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 17-13, Thursday night in their preseason finale. The game wasn’t easy to watch. The starters played only one series and veterans Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant, Donald Driver, Chad Clifton and Charles Woodson were healthy scratches. There were some interesting developments in the game, however, and […]

Colledge Officially Named Starter

Daryn Colledge

The Green Bay Packers officially named Daryn Colledge the starter at left guard for the season opener at Philadelphia, Sept. 12. Colledge had been competing with rookie Bryan Bulaga, but as we predicted on Friday, Bulaga’s inability to play because of a hip flexor ultimately cost him. Bulaga didn’t play on Thursday against Indianapolis and […]

It Looks Like Colledge Will Remain Starter At Left Guard

Daryn Colledge

If I were a betting man, and I am, I’d be willing to place a wager that Daryn Colledge will retain the starting spot as the Green Bay Packers left guard. Colledge is competing for the job with rookie Bryan Bulaga, but Bulaga has been out with a hip flexor and wasn’t able to play […]

Observations From Packers 59-24 Victory Over Colts

Peyton Manning

The Green Bay Packers offense is potent, we knew that, but in their longest outing of the preseason against last year’s AFC champs, they put any doubts to rest. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who I have a hard time believing isn’t on his way to becoming the best player in the NFL, cut up the Colts […]

Packers Veterans Who May Be In Trouble

At the end of every summer, the Green Bay Packers end up cutting a couple veteran players whose release comes as a surprise. Last year, it was receiver Ruvell Martin and safety Anthony Smith. Here’s a list of several players who could potentially be on that list this year. Justin Harrell, defensive tackle — The […]

Training Camp Observations — August 19

Morgan Burnett

The following is from Green Bay Packers training camp on Aug. 19. Moving Bulaga around In an interesting development on the offensive line, rookie Bryan Bulaga, who was spending most of his time at left guard, was moved back to starting left tackle for the morning practice with veteran Chad Clifton resting. Bulaga has been […]

Training Camp Observations — August 17

Mike Neal

The following is a look at Green Bay Packers training camp on Tuesday, August 17. The Green Bay Packers third running back is….. With Kregg Lumpkin and rookie James Starks both injured, it’s a little unclear who is going to step up and take the third running back spot on the team. Now that Brian […]

A Look At The Packers Depth Chart

The Green Bay Packers have released their first depth chart, which gives us a good idea of who is and who isn’t performing well. It also sheds some light on who is playing where. On the offensive side of the ball there aren’t any big surprises. Most notable is that Donald Lee has regained the […]

Packers Throw Bulaga In Mix At Left Guard

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is nothing if not consistent. Every year, he speaks of the importance of continuity along the offensive line and then shuffles guys all over the place once training camp starts in order to assure there will be no continuity. True to form, the Packers moved first-round draft choice Bryan […]

Bulaga, Packers Agree On Five-Year Deal

The Green Bay Packers will open training camp with all of their players under contract, after first-round draft choice Bryan Bulaga signed a five-year deal this morning. The deal is worth $14.75 million with $8.76 million guaranteed. Bulaga was the final player without a contract, after safety Atari Bigby signed his restricted free agent tender […]

Atari Bigby Finally Signs

Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby has signed his restricted free agent tender, according to Adam Schefter. Bigby is scheduled to earn $1.759 million, according to Gregg Rosenthal. Meanwhile, Kevin Seifert says Bigby’s contract number is $1.704 million, which is the amount the Packers threatened to reduce the tender to on June 15. Either way, […]

Packers, Second-Rounder Neal Agree To Deal

Green Bay Packers second-round draft choice Mike Neal, a defensive end from Purdue, has agreed to terms, according to… Mike Neal. Neal tweeted a short time ago that the deal is done, leaving first-round pick Bryan Bulaga as the Packers only unsigned draft choice. The deal is for four years and $3.44 million. It includes […]
