Packers Open OTA’s – Middle Linebackers Are. . .

The Green Bay Packers took to Clarke Hinkle Field on Thursday for the first of three OTA sessions.  It gave fans and media their first look at some of the rookie class of 2015 as well as saw the return of a few faces that were missing last year in that of receiver Jared Abbrederis and defensive lineman B.J. Raji.  Rookie quarterback Brett Hundley and receiver Ty Montgomery were...

Aaron Rodgers upset his calf ‘doesn’t look the same’

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was unable to go through full workouts for a couple of months after the 2014 season concluded.  The left calf injury that slowed Rodgers over the final three games bothered him through March. But as organized team activities began this week, the pain caused by the calf injury has subsided.  Rodgers just wishes his calf looked more aesthetically...

Aaron Rodgers doesn't feel offense will have many changes

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers doesn't believe the change in play-caller from coach Mike McCarthy to offensive coordinator Tom Clements. "I think it's something he's been thinking about for a few years now," Rodgers said, via Packers News. "I'm not speaking for him, but I'm thinking that he's been wanting to get maybe a little closer to some of the other areas...

Notebook: Should Burnett Sit In Dime?

While Morgan Burnett is coming off his best season, the veteran safety was far more effective against the run than the pass. I know this sounds far-fetched, but if the idea is to have the best players on the field at all times, it might make sense for first-round draft pick Damarious Randall to replace Burnett in obvious passing situations. This, of course, would be predicated on...

Report: Green Bay Packers reveal plans for Clay Matthews in 2015

Clay Matthews has been the heart and soul of the Green Bay Packers defense since he joined the team. Few players are as determined and ready to make the big play than he is. Few pass-rushers and defensive players hit and can change games the way he does. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, the Packers plans for using Matthews are simple in 2015: He will continue playing the role...

Flashback Friday: Aaron Rodgers’ tweets about hockey

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is developing a reputation for being a funny Tweeter. Don’t believe me? Let’s flashback to last Friday when he shared his thoughts on hockey: Flipping over to this hockey game, although last nights was a little more exciting up until this point. Need more goals. And mullets. — Aaron Rodgers (@AaronRodgers12) May 22, 2015 “@ACPaolo...

Jordy Nelson on hip surgery: 'Everything is going well'

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson came clean about undergoing hip surgery int the offseason, but insists it was really no big deal. Just a chance for some scheduled maintenance, so to speak. "Everything is going well," he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "...We're just going to continue to progress ...

The most dominant player on each team: NFC North edition

Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers QB It is almost too obvious of a decision, as the reigning MVP is one of the best players in the league and the best player at his position right now. He carries the Green Bay Packers and makes them a perennial Super Bowl contender each season. Last year he threw for 4,381 yards, with a completion percentage of 65.6 percent, 38 touchdowns versus...

Packers ready to launch offense under new play-caller Tom Clements

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy relinquished his beloved play-calling duties this offseason to focus more on the rest of the team and the top question is how will the offense run under associate head coach Tom Clements running the show? Having MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers helps, but the team wants to run the no-huddle more and there are some uncertainties that need to...

Green Bay Packers defensive starting lineup for week one

Since winning Super Bowl XLV four years ago, the Green Bay Packers have struggled to field a defense that could equal what the Super Bowl winning squad did, which was keep pace with the lethal Aaron Rodgers-led offense. General Manager Ted Thompson began the defensive overhaul after the 2011 season that saw a 15-1 season foiled by a brutal defense. Thompson’s master plan is almost...

Who will claim the Packers’ third string RB spot?

For the first seven years of his tenure as the head coach of the Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy struggled to find a running back that could take over as a bell cow back. When Eddie Lacy was drafted in the second round of the 2013 NFL draft, that change everything. The Packers finally had a legitimate starting running back, and now only had to concern themselves with finding...

Brett Hundley Can Become Valuable Trade Chip for Green Bay Packers

When the Green Bay Packers traded up to select quarterback Brett Hundley in the fifth round of the NFL draft, their intention was not for him to be the heir to Aaron Rodgers. Hundley will start the season as a backup, but could be developed into a major trade asset for Green Bay. Hundley was projected to go earlier in the draft than where he was ultimately selected. Prior to the...

Eddie Lacy’s Time As A Green Bay Packer Could Be Limited

“No Way. Absolutely No Way.” This is the response I’d expect every Green Bay Packers fan to make when I tell them there is a reasonable chance that Eddie Lacy isn’t a Green Bay Packer in two years. Obviously they’ll use more expletives involved with their response. The life of an NFL running back is violent and many don’t have prolonged careers without injuries. Running...

Elliott Will Be Tough To Supplant

For each of the past six seasons, an undrafted free agent outside linebacker has made the 53-man roster. From Cyril Obiozor to Frank Zombo to Vic So’oto to Dezman Moses to Andy Mulumba to Jayrone Elliott, it’s been as much a part of summer as a Jimmy Buffet concert. Will this unlikely streak continue? My early guess is no. In other summers, players as talented as LSU’s Jermauria...

Rookies Must Make Their Presence Known for Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers selected eight players in the 2015 NFL draft, and the Packers expect that each of them will contribute on the field during their rookie season. While Green Bay already has a roster that is loaded with proven talent at many positions, many, if not all, of the Packers’ rookies must establish themselves as dependable players for the team to be successful.

Packers, Crosby to be Marginally Affected by New PAT Rule

The NFL’s most recent rule change – moving extra point attempts back to the 15-yard line – has drawn mixed reactions since it broke news on May 19. This change effectively makes the common PAT attempt a 32 or 33-yard kick while two-point attempts will remain on the two-yard line. The ultimate objective of this moderation is to encourage teams to attempt more two-point conversions...

Packers Compare Rookie WR Ty Montgomery to a “Bigger Randall Cobb”

The Green Bay Packers decided  to add to their wide receiver depth by selecting Ty Montgomery out of Stanford in the third round of the 2015 NFL draft. After Montgomery was selected, a Packers scout referred to him as a “bigger Randall Cobb.” Cobb, the Packers current slot receiver, stands 5-foot-10 and weighs 192 pounds.

Green Bay Packers: Crowded at the running back position

Last year, Eddie Lacy and James Starks shouldered almost all of the workload in the backfield for the Green Bay Packers. There wasn’t much need for a third back, and if there was, John Kuhn filled that void. With running backs frequently getting injured or not performing well, most NFL teams carry four or five running/fullbacks. With two spots filled already, (Eddie Lacy and James...

Packers Xs and Os: The Randall and Rollins “Mirror” Defense
