Packers almost drafted Ray Lewis

The Green Bay Packers were very close to drafting former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis back in 1996. Lewis was on the phone with the Packers’ front office and thought for sure he would fall to them. “We had his agent on the phone as I recall it, and we had Ray Lewis on the phone,” said former Packers GM Ron Wolf. “I think there was less than a minute to go. We already had...

Aaron Rodgers says smoking gesture a tribute to Jay Cutler

If you have watched the Green Bay Packers in their no-huddle offense at all over the past two seasons, you may have noticed Aaron Rodgers making a smoking gesture with one of his hand signals. It obviously indicates some sort of play call or formation change, but Rodgers wants you to believe he did it […]

Greg Jennings does not miss Green Bay

It’s not a secret that the marriage between the Green Bay Packers and wide receiver Greg Jennings didn’t end too swimmingly. After signing a five-year, $45 million contract with the division rival Minnesota Vikings prior to the 2013 campaign, Jennings found himself booed by the very same fans that had cheered him at Lambeau for seven years. Never afraid to open up to the media...

Brett Favre gets haircut and shave - for new commercial (Video)

Retired NFL quarterback Brett Favre had been looking rather shaggy in recent public appearances, letting his hair grow and sporting a full grey beard. However, it would seem that Favre's recent grooming habits, or lack thereof, may have all been a setup for this commercial promoting MicroTouch razors and trimmers.Favre looks a lot better now after getting himself cleaned up...

Defense Shouldn’t Be This Bad

Blame general manager Ted Thompson for squandering high draft picks on defensive players who have been either terrible (Jerel Worthy) or mediocre (B.J. Raji, Nick Perry and Mike Neal). Blame him for signing average players to big contracts (A.J. Hawk, Brad Jones and Morgan Burnett). And blame him for not using unrestricted free agency to plug gaping holes. But don’t blame him for...

Cory’s Corner: Anyone want to play nose tackle for the Packers?

As soon as B.J. Raji was lost for the season this past August, my mind started to race. I wondered if general manager Ted Thompson would pick up the phone and call Ryan Pickett. After all, the 6-foot-2, 310-pound defensive tackle played eight seasons for the Packers. He started all 16 games in 2012 and 2013. I also wondered if Thompson would kick the tires on Johnny Jolly. He received...

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Is Already an Impact Player for the Green Bay Packers’ Defense

The Green Bay Packers selected Ha Ha Clinton-Dix with the No. 21 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft because they thought he could be a playmaker. And after four games, it looks like they were right because Clinton-Dix has already become one of the most impactful players on the Green Bay defense. The 6-1, 205-pound safety, has come into the NFL and proven he belongs. In four games...

Datone Jones Becoming a Force on Green Bay Packers’ Defensive Line

When the Green Bay Packers selected Datone Jones in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, they thought they were going to get a dominant force on their defensive line. Last season, Jones struggled and in part due to injury was not able to make the immediate impact expected. But now, in year two, the freakish defensive lineman from UCLA, is making plays and finally looks like the...

Aaron Rodgers: ‘It’s sure nice when people doubt us’

Peppers: Not sacking Aaron Rodgers changed my career

Julius Peppers believes he would still be a member of the Chicago Bears if he had sacked Aaron Rodgers in the final game of last season. Peppers nearly brought down the Green Bay Packers quarterback on fourth and 8.  But fullback John Kuhn chipped Peppers, allowing Rodgers to hit Randall Cobb for a 48-yard game-winning touchdown at Soldier Field. “I was pretty close. I was pretty...

The Green Bay Packers have stumbled out of the gate a bit in the early part of the season, going 1-2.
