We all know the Green Bay Packers are a beat-up bunch. It’s something we at OBOD have tried to steer away from as much as possible because, well, we don’t like making excuses about our team. We’re just so un-Vikings fan-ish that way.
So, instead of simply griping about it, I’ve decided to go a different [...]
Okay, now we can say the Green Bay Packers’ defense is devastated by injury.
Wednesday, we learned that outside linebacker Brad Jones’ season is indeed over. Jones has been placed on injured reserve and will undergo surgery on his damaged shoulder. The injury initially occurred in camp and was apparently significantly re-injured in Sunday night’s win [...]
And Vikings week, chapter one (technically, chapter three) has officially begun.
That being the case, there’s quite a bit of news surrounding the Green Bay Packers, a team that’s lost three of four and desperately needs to right the ship.
What better time than now to make a trip back to the question department, right? After all, [...]
(Note: My streak of game recaps is officially over at 29. Don’t worry – I’ll start a new one Sunday.)
As Gene, Adam and myself exited FedEx Field on Sunday, following the Green Bay Packers’ gutwrenching 16-13 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins, we found ourselves using variations of the same phrase over and over:
This team just [...]
(Note: Last season, I called this post the “Wednesday Wrap-up.” We’re going with the new name because, well, it’s just more fun, isn’t it?)
Tuesday, it seemed as though the Green Bay Packers might have found a solution to their return man quandary.
Former All-Pro returner Clifton Smith, recently released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was in [...]
Remember when Antonio Gates exploded onto the scene a few years back? This may be bigger. However, the more success Finley has will create one major problem: What will happen after the 2010 season? Finley is under contract through 2011, but his scheduled to only make $470,000 this year and $550,000 next season. [...]
So, six practices in – how are the Green Bay Packers looking?
In short, similar to most teams at this point. The defense is ahead of the offense, which is almost always the case at any level of football six practices in to a season. OTA/minicamps only do so much for keeping a rhythm, after all, [...]
And a new horse has entered the race at left outside linebacker for the Green Bay Packers.
Monday’s news that the team is indeed trying defensive end Cullen Jenkins at the position, for at least a stretch, comes as a major surprise (more on him in a bit). It also makes it official: There’s a good chance the position [...]
(Before we begin: Just to reiterate, if you’re worried this is it for OBOD’s offseason coverage, don’t be. We’ll be all over free agency when it starts and we’re already busy researching for the draft and we’ll be beginning our coverage of that soon enough. Three words: Mock drafts, baby!)
Let’s cut to the chase. Here [...]
Unrestricted free agents? Check.
Restricted free agents? Double check.
You might think that’d just about cover it for the Green Bay Packers’ offseason to-do list - outside of the draft, of course (don’t worry, we’ll be ALL over that soon enough at OBOD).
If you think that, I’ve got three words for you: Not. Even. Close.
As we all know, numerous [...]
