Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Brady Poppinga was supposed to help the team in the pass rush department in 2010.
That never really happened.
Poppinga recorded 14 tackles and one sack in the Packers’ first six games before landing on injured reserve and becoming the forgotten man.
The Green Bay Packers will go into this year’s NFL Draft with a roster that doesn’t have a lot of holes.
The team could use upgrades in two key areas, though. The Packers still don’t have a pass-rush threat at linebacker opposite Clay Matthews and could also use help along the offensive line.
Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Erik Walden looks like a long shot to play in Super Bowl XLV. Walden, who suffered a high ankle sprain in the NFC Championship game, did not participate in Saturday’s jog-through practice. “Erik’s going to have to show us something before the game,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “Obviously we’re going […]
Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Frank Zombo, who hasn’t played in a game since spraining his posterior cruciate ligament on Dec. 12 at Detroit, finally returned to practice today. While that’s a boost for the Packers, Zombo’s replacement and the guy who has been outplaying him, Erik Walden, sat out Friday’s session with the sprained […]
Erik Walden didn’t look like much of a player when the Green Bay Packers picked him up earlier this season. The linebacker had been waived by the Miami Dolphins and when the Packers signed him, joined his third team in his fourth NFL season. Walden had a grand total of 23 tackles — all on […]
Like betting on black 22, the Green Bay Packers don’t have any real idea what’s going to happen with their outside linebackers when they face the New York Giants, on Sunday. Starter Frank Zombo has essentially been ruled out with a sprained knee. Zombo tried to practice on Friday and the results weren’t promising. Officially, […]
With Frank Zombo ruled out for Sunday’s game, the Green Bay Packers will turn to Erik Walden to start at outside linebacker. Walden was waived by the Miami Dolphins earlier this season and the Packers signed him on Oct. 27. The Packers are Walden’s third team in three NFL seasons. He’s never started an NFL […]
While everyone in the great state of Wisconsin is concerned about Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his availability for Sunday’s game after suffering his second concussion of the season, his status will be up in the air as he undergoes tests throughout the week. The injury news isn’t getting any better for the […]
Perhaps it isn’t quite accurate to say Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews’ production has dropped. His sack numbers have dropped, for sure. He’s now second in the league with 11.5 sacks — Miami’s Cameron Wake has 12 — after leading the league for most of the season and he hasn’t recorded a sack the […]
We gave you the midseason awards: other people’s edition yesterday and we also told you what we thought about midseason awards. The best word to summarize would be this one: indifference. However, we promised you our midseason awards at some point, and here they are. The difference between our midseason awards and other people’s are […]
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went through a full practice Friday and has been cleared to start against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Officially, he’s listed as probable on the injury report. “I thought Aaron Rodgers looked fine today at practice,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “From my perspective, I would say he’s ready to […]
The Green Bay Packers got a win on Sunday, but their 28-26 victory over the Detroit Lions left a lot to be desired. The 0-4 Lions racked up more than 400 yards of offense in Lambeau Field and quarterback Shaun Hill threw for 331 yards and two touchdowns, largely on the strength of short passes […]
My friend Sean calls him half zombie, half Rambo. I suppose that probably makes him all man… or something. Whatever the hell he is, undrafted rookie Frank Zombo is now the Green Bay Packers starting outside linebacker. Packers coach Mike McCarthy announced Zombo would replace Brad Jones, on Wednesday. Jones missed Monday’s game with a […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Frank Zombo looks like he might be the real deal. The Green Bay Packers signed Zombo as an undrafted free agent and converted him to outside linebacker after he played his college career as a defensive end at Central Michigan. He tallied 25.5 sacks as a Chippewa and has been generating some pressure for the […]
It’s better to have to deal with injuries the second week of training camp than it is to deal with injuries during the regular season, but the Green Bay Packers appear to have reached a critical mass. Coach Mike McCarthy had to call practice early on Monday because the Packers have so many injuries. They […]
The weather man was wrong. It’s sunny and 85 degrees about an hour before practice. Quick observations: – There is a lot of talk here in Green Bay on the Brett Favre retirement. My thoughts — he stays retired until September 9th when, while mowing the lawn, he decides to drive the lawnmower to the […]
The Green Bay Packers signed several undrafted free agents following the seven-round NFL Draft. Those players are as follows. Miami cornerback Sam Shields Shields is a speed demon. He ran the 40 in 4.3 seconds at Miami’s pro day. However, he’s extremely raw as a cornerback, having played only one season at the position at […]
