Green Bay Packers: Pack clinch playoff berth with win in Tampa.

Safety Morgan Burnett becoming a leader on defense: 'He's been everything we've expected'

Green Bay Packers safety Morgan Burnett had been on the team's radar as an up and coming player and in 2014 he's shown that assumption was correct. Burnett has started in 62 games over his five seasons in the NFL and having that type of playing experience makes him one of the guys in the locker room teammates look to for leadership on the field. Cornerback Casey Hayward said...

5 Reasons the Packers will beat the Bucs (and 1 reason why they might not)

I’ve been thinking real hard this week, and I can’t remember ever seeing the Green Bay Packers play well in Tampa Bay. I know they’ve only won once in Tampa, but I don’t remember that win and I don’t really remember any losses where the Packers came up short, but at least played well. All I can ever really remember about the Bucs are their so-bad-they’re-awesome sherbet...

Cory’s Corner: Packers’ LBs must make Josh McCown uncomfortable

One of the easiest ways the Packers win on Sunday is by rushing quarterback Josh McCown. Get him uncomfortable in the pocket. And the group that has to get it done is the linebackers. The linebackers have 61 percent of the team’s 32 sacks this season. But recently, the unit hasn’t really showed up. In the last three games, the linebacking corps has just 1½ sacks. That’s the...

‘Very blind’ Eddie Lacy needs 60 yards to hit 1,000-yard mark

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy is just 60 yards shy of hitting the 1,000-yard mark for the second straight season. The only thing stopping the second-year pro from hitting the mark is coach Mike McCarthy and his eyes.  Lacy, who is dealing with an irritated left eye, has practiced with just one contact this week but hopes to be able...

Packers' front 5 helps keep offense humming

The Green Bay Packers keep absorbing the hits on the offensive line. But as far as the linemen are concerned, better that they take the blows than quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Front fives don't usually draw much attention. The Packers' highlight reel is typically filled with pinpoint passes from Rodgers to receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, and pinball runs by Eddie Lacy. But...

Corey Linsley: Why Green Bay Packers’ Top Rookie Should Get to Pro Bowl

Ted Thompson has made a lot of great draft picks. But when it comes to the offensive line, Corey Linsley may be the best pick he’s ever made. Linsley, a fifth-round selection out of Ohio State, was thrust into the starting lineup in Week One thanks to an injury to J.C. Tretter, who the Packers had groomed all off season to be their starter. It was thought that Linsley would have...

Is Cory Linsley of the Green Bay Packers the best center playing in the NFL?

The NFL may be a passing league but if you ask me too much attention goes to the guy behind center and not enough on the center himself.

Let’s find out who are the top five best centers playing in the NFL...
