Packers say Thanksgiving day beatdown is irrelevant

The Green Bay Packers, one might argue, were not quite themselves on Thanksgiving day last year as the Detroit Lions had their way with them on the way to a staggering 40-10 victory. The Green Bay offense was downright terrible, with the offensive line giving up seven sacks, and running back Eddie Lacy had a pedestrian 1.6 yards per carry. “We’ve done our best to try to forget...

Green Bay Packers: Why Cobb and Williams deserve new deals

During the offseason, the Green Bay Packers made it a big priority to sign wide receiver Jordy Nelson to a contract extension.  Considering that Nelson has been one Aaron Rodgers’ favorite targets since he came into the league in 2008, it was wise of the Packers management to give Nelson a four-year extension worth $39 million.  With Nelson signed for the future, the focus now...

5 reasons the Green Bay Packers could win (or lose) vs. Lions

Five Reasons Why the Packers will win 1. Jordy Nelson will go off again. Nelson will play even faster in the dome in Detroit and he should be able to continue his hot start against a young Detroit secondary. Second-year cornerback Darius Slay will likely get the tough task against Nelson. Ther Lions gave up five pass plays of 20 yards or more in last weeks loss to the Panthers, big...

Green Bay Packers: Good, bad, and ugly

Sometimes in sports, one week between games can make all the difference. The players are rested, more focused, and in some cases, play a team that isn’t as skilled. That was the case with the Green Bay Packers. In Week 1, they played the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and got outplayed in almost every way possible. In Week 2, they were matched up against the New...

Packers Should Let Julius Peppers Stick to Pass Rushing

After two games there has been a lot of talk and a lot of questions about the play of Green Bay’s big free-agent acquisition Julius Peppers. Through two games, the ultra-talented Peppers has just eight tackles and no sacks and at times has looked a little bit lost. That is because the Packers have tried to play him at outside linebacker, when it’s clear he needs to stick to...

Did Mark Cuban know something we didn’t about the NFL?

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban sparked a huge discussion about America’s favorite sport with eyebrow-raising comments on the NFL a few months ago. Cuban believes that if the NFL continues to expand and dominate the market, the league may eventually implode. “I think the NFL is 10 years away from an implosion.

Cory’s Corner: Packers’ passing game needs its tight ends

Jordy Nelson put the Packers’ receiving corps on his back in Sunday’s 31-24 comeback win over the Jets. But Green Bay cannot rely on Nelson to come through with 209 receiving yards — good for fourth best in franchise history — every week. The position that would really open things up for other receivers is tight end. And the entire tight end position received three targets...

Is it Time to Push the Panic Button in Title Town?

A recent Forbes survey revealed that that Green Bay Packers have the best fans in the NFL. Of course, the ubiquitous and fervent Packers fans already knew that and would be perfectly willing to explain why. But Packers fans generally aren’t used to coming in second, and many are already concerned, because of the team’s stumbling start, that the No. 1 fan designation might be...

Corey Linsley Staking Claim to Green Bay Packers’ Starting Center Job

Players shouldn’t lose their job to injury. But, in the NFL and other professional sports leagues it happens all the time and after the way that Corey Linsley has played for the Green Bay Packers in his first two starts at center in place of the injured J.C. Tretter, it may happen again. Don’t get me wrong, I think that Tretter is a solid player. The Packers planned all offseason...
