Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed the obvious yesterday, saying Desmond Bishop was the team’s No. 1 inside linebacker, but the rest of the group is surrounded by uncertainty.
The Packers confirmed Bishop was part of the team’s long-term plans after he took over for Nick Barnett and received a four-year extension in December. Meanwhile, Barnett and A.J. Hawk will be competing to start opposite Bishop.
The Green Bay Packers have to make a decision on linebacker A.J. Hawk at some point this offseason.
Hawk is guaranteed $10 million for the 2011 season under his current contract. That’s an amount the Packers have no intention of paying.
I’ll be honest. I’ve never been a big fan of Green Bay Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk. He’s simply never lived up to his status as the fifth-overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. No All Pros, no Pro Bowls, never developed into a big-time playmaker. After he didn’t play a snap in the Packers season-opening […]
Green Bay Packers Nick Barnett and Jermichael Finley took issue with the fact the team wasn’t going to include the players on injured reserve in the team’s Super Bowl photo. They whined about it on Twitter and now that whining has paid off. The team was initially slated to take the photo on Tuesday, in […]
It’s one of those things that sits in the back of your mind that you don’t want to remember. And then someone brings it up and you can’t help but think about what could have been. The Green Bay Packers are playing the Philadelphia Eagles this week. You know the play I’m talking about. 4th […]
The Green Bay Packers have signed inside linebacker Desmond Bishop to a contract extension. The deal is reportedly for $19 million over four years. Bishop took over the starting job at inside linebacker after Nick Barnett’s season ended after week four, getting the first extensive action of his Packers’ career. He then proceeded to make […]
Green Bay Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop finally got his chance to start and he’s making the most of it. Bishop has outperformed Nick Barnett, who he replaced in the starting lineup after Barnett’s season-ending wrist injury, by a wide margin. So far this season, Bishop has 54 tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble, and an […]
As the Green Bay Packers’ injuries began to pile up, quite a few people thought the wheels were about to fall off. The Packers currently have 10 players on injured reserve, five of which are starters, eight of which play defense. While Ryan Grant and the Packers lack of a certifiable running game was the […]
I’ve always questioned the Green Bay Packers coaching staff and their reluctance to give young players a shot when those players were behind veterans on the depth chart. Mike McCarthy and company always have some reason to stick with the veteran over the young guy, even when the young guy has a similar talent level. […]
The Green Bay Packers got some good news on the injury front, Wednesday, which is a refreshing change of pace for the team. The most important development is linebacker Clay Matthews returned to practice after missing last Sunday’s game with Miami. Matthews only took part in the jog through portion of practice, but barring a […]
The Green Bay Packers officially ended Nick Barnett’s season by putting him on injured reserve. Barnett had wrist surgery earlier this week and there was a possibility he could have returned in eight weeks, but the Packers apparently weren’t interested in waiting to see if that would happen. Barnett injured his wrist in the Packers’ […]
That’s what I might eventually say if I were Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson. Tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner was placed on the waived/injured list today by the Detroit Lions. Havner was released by the Packers during their final preseason roster cuts. Havner could provide valuable depth for the Packers, who are battling injuries […]
The good news for the Green Bay Packers is tight end Jermichael Finley’s injury isn’t season ending. The bad news is he’ll need surgery and will miss three to six weeks. Finley tore his meniscus early in the Packers loss to the Washington Redskins, on Sunday. Meanwhile, linebacker Nick Barnett will have surgery on his […]
The Green Bay Packers did everything they could to keep the Washington Redskins in the football game for four quarters. In the end, the Redskins finally took advantage to win 16-13 on a Graham Gano 33-yard field goal in overtime. After a strong first half, the Packers offense failed to do anything of note in […]
If you haven’t heard that the Green Bay Packers have a shitload of injuries, well… then get the hell out of here. The Packers will be down four week one starters against the Redskins this week — five, if you count linebacker Brandon Chillar and six, if you count cornerback Sam Shields. Those players are […]
We may all look back at the end of the season and note the Green Bay Packers week four game with the Detroit Lions as the point where it all went to shit. The Packers have lost one starter for the season, safety Morgan Burnett. They are on the verge of losing another in linebacker […]
Add safety Nick Collins to the Green Bay Packers growing list of injury concerns. Collins missed Wednesday’s practice with a knee strain and said he’s not optimistic about playing against the Redskins on Sunday, according to Kareem Copeland. “I’m doing the best I can to get ready for Sunday,” Collins said. “Just trying to strengthen […]
When Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said linebacker Nick Barnett could miss an extended period with a wrist injury, we didn’t anticipate “extended period” meant “the rest of the year.” However, that appears to be a real possibility. Multiple sources have confirmed Barnett’s initial diagnosis — that he will need surgery to repair his […]
The Green Bay Packers got some good news and some bad news on Wednesday. First, the bad news. Linebacker Nick Barnett, who injured his wrist against the Detroit Lions and finished the game anyway, could be out an extended period, according to coach Mike McCarthy. Barnett is getting a second opinion on Friday. “Yeah, there […]
Green Bay Packers linebacker Nick Barnett was on LA Ink. I don’t know when this happened because I don’t watch the show, but the studio is right down the street from my house, although I’ve only been in it once. I’m not sure if I think it’s cool Barnett got a tattoo in my neighborhood […]
