(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 [...]
Tuesday was the first of two scheduled cutdown days for NFL teams, with every team mandated to get down from 80 to 75 players.
The Green Bay Packers took a different approach. They cut no one.
Instead, the Packers placed three players on the PUP list and one more on injured reserve (they had only 79 players [...]
The Green Bay Packers had been very quiet since Thursday night’s preseason pounding of the Indianapolis Colts.
(One more game and it’s finally over.)
That changed Sunday.
The Packers got back to work on the practice field and there was some fairly significant news to come out of it. So, that being the case, we’ve decided to whip [...]
Well, the third preseason game is here. And, as Denny Green once famously informed us, this is the one that teams do not, in fact, play like it’s bull(expletive), bull(expletive)!
That could be especially true in this one, as the Green Bay Packers take on the Indianapolis Colts and some cat named Peyton at Lambeau Field tonight [...]
With the “dress rehearsal” preseason game – i.e., game No. 3 – against the Indianapolis Colts just five days away, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy took a cautious approach Saturday night against the Seattle Seahawks.
In other words, a lot of players didn’t play.
The entire starting linebacking corps was out, for example, as were [...]
The past few days at OBOD haven’t been incredibly Green Bay Packers-centric, what with our “Know Your Enemy” series and the return of Brett Favre and all.
(Seriously – did you read Gene’s fantastic post from Tuesday? If not, scroll down a bit after reading this. And, to all of our new readers, thanks for checking [...]
In our game recap for the Green Bay Packers’ 2009 preseason opener, a home game against the Cleveland Browns, we broke down the good, bad and ugly portions of the contest.
The Pack’s 2010 preseason opener was again at home – again versus the Browns – only this time, words like “good”, “bad” and “ugly” don’t seem to [...]
If Saturday’s contest between the Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns – set for 7 p.m. Lambeau Time at, well, Lambeau Field – was a regular season affair, we’d go all out in writing a preview.
Unfortunately, though, it isn’t – it’s merely the preseason opener.
That being the case, we’ll go a different route and merely [...]
We got our first real look at the 2010 Green Bay Packers on Saturday night in the team’s annual “Family Night” scrimmage at Lambeau Field.
(Big ups to the folks at Fox11 in Green Bay for streaming the event online. Well done, gang.)
It’s hard to know exactly what we should take away from such an event. [...]
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, [...]
