Randall Cobb shares funny story about preseason prep with Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers went out of his way to push the Green Bay Packers to bring wide receiver Randall Cobb back to the team. Once they did, the quarterback was apparently so excited about getting down to business that Cobb had to tell him to pump the brakes.

Week 3 NFL Picks: Can Packers overcome being a road underdog at San Francisco?

Set Number: X163452

Matt LaFleur’s teams have a bad track record in California, and they’ll get another test on Sunday coming off a short week.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the Green Bay Packers got to play the San Francisco 49ers at home for a change? This Sunday night, the two teams will meet for the fourth time since the start of the 2019 season, and all four of those games have taken place at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.

Trips to California were rough on Matt LaFleur’s team...

Green Bay’s rookie cornerback looked ready to start after a strong showing on Monday Night Football.

It wasn’t the cleanest performance from the Green Bay Packers defense on Monday Night Football, but first-round pick Eric Stokes looked like a legitimate starting cornerback with a strong showing against the Detroit Lions.

After seeing limited action in Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints, Stokes logged 44 snaps on Monday night. As a...

Cheese Curds, 9/24: Elgton Jenkins’ injury, Jon Runyan Jr.’s performance may shuffle offensive line again

Jenkins missing Sunday would be a major blow against the 49ers’ defense

A common theme for the Green Bay Packers a year ago was the constant shuffling of the offensive line. Remarkably, the group played consistently well despite little consistency of starters between games.

We are only two weeks into the 2021 season and it looks like more of the same may be occurring.

As America felt the impact of the coronavirus pandemic starting in early 2020, many small businesses faced a unifying problem: having enough cash on hand to keep the doors open and the lights on.

Packers Stats of the Week, Lions Edition: Stokes vs. King, no pass rush, and regression

Wm. Glasheen USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin via Imagn Content Services, LLC

There are a few good candidates for positive regression in Green Bay, but please, someone, sack a quarterback.

It was nice to see the Green Bay Packers rebound on Monday night and beat up on an undermanned opponent, but it’s still an open question as to whether or not the Packers are any good. One thing that is absolutely clear from the team’s first two games is that they need to give Eric Stokes more snaps,...

NFC North Rundown: After injury to Dalton, the future should be now for the Bears at QB

Justin Fields may make his highly-anticipated starting debut earlier than expected, pending Andy Dalton’s knee injury.

With a high-octane offensive performance in the second half, coupled with an improved defensive effort, the Green Bay Packers (1-1) were able to bounce back and win their first game of the season.

The 35-17 win over Detroit moved the Packers into an early tie with the Chicago Bears atop the NFC North standings a week after a...

Wednesday Cheese Curds: Jones finds father’s ashes, Eric Stokes impresses

The Packers’ rookie corner stepped up in a big way in Monday’s win over the Lions.

If his first significant playing time is any indication, the Green Bay Packers may have a hit in Eric Stokes. The team’s first-round draft pick from April played a significant portion of the game during the Packers’ week two win over the Detroit Lions and in general he was more effective than Kevin King has been over the first two games.

King struggled on...
