PACKERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

2016 NFL Week 14 Preview and Prediction: Packers vs. Seahawks

We've had this last week, Packer fans, to revel in a two-game winning streak following our victories over Philadelphia and Houston. After you lose four in a row, yeah, two qualifies as a streak. The Packers were able to do what they needed to do, at home in December against the Texans, to get back to .500 at 6-6. No need to rehash that game here and at this point; it's old news by...

Seahawks vs. Packers: Rants & Raves

Much like we thought when the schedule was released in April, this week's game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks will be a pivotal one.  More so for the Packers, as they need to continue to improve their record to keep up with the division-leading Detroit Lions and also the Minnesota Vikings.  On the one hand, it's a big of "here we go again" with a game against...

The Packers, the Prisoners and the Priest Who Unites Them

More than three hours before the Packers kicked off against the Texans in Week 13, Jim Baraniak led the usual game day mass inside a lecture hall. On this Sunday, the Catholic chaplain asked the players and coaches, including Mike McCarthy, who never misses mass, to pray not for a win but for a specific inmate at the Green Bay Correctional Institution—a maximum-security prison...

Julius Peppers is the Packers' playoff key

Aaron Rodgers has easily been the Packers’ MVP this season. But if Green Bay wants to sniff an eighth straight playoff appearance, the most important player is Julius Peppers. You read that right. The oldest guy on the Packers is the most important over the next four games. And the reason is simple. Green Bay’s defense has been devastated this year. The entire secondary has...

Seahawks-Packers Injury Report: Matthews, Gunter, & Randall are Questionable

Name a starter on the Packers’ defense at any position other than safety...there’s a good bet that he is questionable for Sunday’s game. One of the under-the-radar notes from the Green Bay Packers’ practice participation reports in week 14 has been the statuses of the team’s two starting boundary cornerbacks, LaDarius Gunter and Damarious Randall (whom we have nicknamed...

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Don’t Stop Believin’

What a dark time it was not so long ago.  The internet wolves were out, and they were ravenous.  Fire the coach? Force the General Manager to retire? Trade the quarterback (that was particularly dumb)?  People were looking for answers, anywhere they could find them (or make them up).  The Packers were 4-6, had lost four in a row and appeared to be heading for one of the first...

Spriggs Surviving At Guard

It was actually painful to watch Jason Spriggs on tape. Not because of the way the rookie right guard played  against Houston on Sunday, but because he had to work so darn hard. I’ve seen a lot of football over the past 35 years, and I can’t remember an offensive lineman exerting so much energy on almost every snap. Why was it such a struggle? Because Spriggs hadn’t even...
