Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson ranked 12th best in NFL, Randall Cobb 27th

When cover32 released its list of the top 10 wide receivers in the NFL today, there were plenty of people angry about their favorite team’s pass catcher not making the list. It made for a spirited debate in the “Comments” section below the article. The second batch of WRs, Nos. 11-20, generated a similar response. The next logical step in the ranking of the game’s wide...

Packers expecting more production from high draft picks

Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson's philosophy is to build through the draft, develop young players, and when their contracts are up, he either re-signs them or collects a compensatory pick for his next haul. However, for that process to happen, the players have to be productive and have value on the open market. As the team grinds through training camp, as deep...

Packers former first-round pick Perry says he still has 'bright future'

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Nick Perry's NFL career has not gotten off to the start that he wanted. Two years after the Green Bay Packers made him their first-round pick, Perry has been defined more by the injuries that have set him back than anything positive that's happened on the field. Missing the entire offseason program (including minicamp) and the first four training camp practices...

VIDEO: Davante Adams makes spectacular one-handed grab

The last thing that the other 31 NFL teams need is Aaron Rodgers with another talented target at wide receiver. Rodgers already has a tremendous corps to work with in Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Jarrett Boykin, but now it looks like you can add one more round to the chamber. Rookie wide receiver Davanta Adams has been very impressive thus far at Packers training camp, and yesterday...

Do the Green Bay Packers have any of the most underrated players in the NFL?

Last week, I provided my annual list of the 10 most overrated players in the NFL. As expected, it caused an uproar, mostly from people who can’t take off their team-colored glasses and deal with the truth. For a good time, read the “Comments” section below the article; it’s pure gold and classic examples of denial. In the spirit of showing that it’s not all negative on...

Packers: Micah Hyde Will Be Opening Day Starter over Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

When the Green Bay Packers selected Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, many fans assumed he would be the day one starter at safety but after an impressive offseason and an even better start to training camp, the position could belong to Micah Hyde, not Clinton-Dix After all, safety was one of the Packers’ weakest positions last season, as no safety on...

Green Bay Packers: Why isn't Jerry Kramer in the Hall of Fame?

It seems nowadays that celebrities in the national spotlight will often use their exposure in mass media to put forth a cause, charity, or opinion in order to use their unique professional station to bring awareness to their topic. While the impulse to use this fringe benefit seems noble on the surface, it’s also something that also rubs people the wrong way. It disgusts the public...

Eddie Lacy calls himself “Moss”

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told Packers.com the nickname that running back Eddie Lacy has given himself. “Eddie has a self-appointed nickname of ‘Moss,’ as in Randy Moss,” Rodgers said. “He thinks he’s got incredible hands. His hands actually are very good.” If Lacy can catch the ball as well as he thinks he does,  that will give the Packers another added...

Green Bay’s New Look Front Seven

There was talk during the offseason about the Green Bay Packers going for a new body type along their defensive line, and that seems accurate right now. Gone are players like 340-pound Ryan Pickett and 325-pound Johnny Jolly. They have been replaced in the base defense so far in camp by Datone Jones and Mike Daniels, who weigh 285 pounds and 300 pounds respectively. B.J. Raji will...
