Packers’ David Bakhtiari & Kenny Clark passed over as Pro Bowl replacements

Were the Packers stars snubbed yet again, or did they decline invites for personal reasons? The Green Bay Packers have two players representing the NFC in the 2019 Pro Bowl, as Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams will be in Orlando this week to participate in the game. However, with the Los Angeles Rams advancing to Super Bowl LIII, there was an opportunity for a one particular Packers player to join the roster as a replacement, while an injury opened the door for another Four Rams were originally on the NFC team: quarterback Jared Goff, running back Todd Gurley, special teamer Cory Littleton,...

Green Bay Packers 2019 roster review: Nick Perry

Injuries were the story for Nick Perry again in 2018. The Green Bay Packers signed Nick Perry to a new five-year contract after his 11-sack season in 2016. But Perry played in just nine games in 2018. He has never played all 16 games in a season since being drafted in the first round back […] Green Bay Packers 2019 roster review: Nick Perry - Lombardi Ave - Lombardi Ave - A Green Bay Packers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Friday Cheese Curds: Packers hope the past breeds future success for Nathaniel Hackett

In Green Bay, the former Jacksonville play caller will work with the best quarterback he’s ever had. When Matt LaFleur was hired as the new head coach of the Green Bay Packers, there was excitement yet also some trepidation concerning his offense in Tennessee this season. Now LaFleur has hired Nathaniel Hackett as his offensive coordinator and the same concerns have arisen over Hackett’s performance in Jacksonville after he was fired in November. Both LaFleur and Hackett had to deal with major injuries to their offenses: LaFleur with quarterback Marcus Mariota damaging nerves in his...

Packers news: Bleacher Report thinks Green Bay could cut Nick Perry

A new article suggests that the Green Bay Packers could cut outside linebacker Nick Perry from the lineup. According to speculation by Bleacher Report, one of the main reasons that they’re looking to cut Perry from the roster is the injuries — and the subsequent sidelining — that he’s been suffering. In 2017, Perry needed surgery on […] The post Packers news: Bleacher Report thinks Green Bay could cut Nick Perry appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Packers: 5 free agent safeties to target this offseason

These are five upcoming free agents that the Green Bay Packers should consider to fill their need at safety for the 2019 season.

A disastrous 2018 was exactly the season the Packers needed to make necessary changes

When Brett Hundley struggled and it was clear Green Bay lagged behind in talent, Mike McCarthy shook up his coaching staff and Mark Murphy made a GM change. But it took another year of failure to bring us to this important moment. Aaron Rodgers would fix everything. It could have been the title of the Packers 2018 offseason, or the headline for the last five years of the organization’s team-building philosophy under Ted Thompson. When a collarbone injury spoiled a promising start for Green Bay in 2017, Brett Hundley and Co. managed just enough wins to keep the Packers in the playoff hunt...

Bears vs. Eagles Injury Report: Eddie Jackson 1 of 3 questionable for Chicago

This is the full injury report for the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles in advance of Sunday's Wildcard game. The Chicago Bears aren’t completely healthy heading into their first playoff game in eight years, but the training room at Halas Hall hasn’t exactly been a busy place this season. Outside linebacker Aaron Lynch hasn’t played or practiced since injuring his elbow on December 15 against the Green Bay Packers, and he’s listed as doubtful. My guess is he does not play on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Free safety Eddie Jackson was hurt in that same game, but...

Packers 2018 Snap Counts: Season totals illustrate injuries’ impact on the roster

Here’s a look at how the playing time broke down for all the Packers in 2018. The Green Bay Packers finished the 2018 season 6-9-1, and there were numerous reasons for that result. Loads of injuries sapped the team of key players on both sides of the football; the coaching staff’s decision-making was often questionable; Aaron Rodgers’ injury seemed to derail him from his normal caliber of play. All of those issues can be illustrated at least in some form by looking at the team’s total snap counts for the season. Interestingly, the Packers did run more offensive plays than their...

Patriots’ Brian Flores is an outlier in the Packers head coaching search

So far, the Packers list of candidates revolves almost exclusively around offensive coaches, so what does Green Bay see in the Patriots’ LB coach? Brian Flores is different. It’s not just that he’s one of the rare coaches whose Google search will yield a height and weight (Flores played linebacker at Boston College). It’s not only that he started as a scout in the New England Patriots organization after an injury cost him a chance at the NFL, or that he’s not actually technically even New England’s defensive coordinator. No, the amalgamation of all of these things along with...

Aaron Rodgers left Packers’ season finale in an ambulance, per report

The concussion suffered by the quarterback apparently warranted further tests at a local hospital. An arguably foolish decision became much more foolish on Sunday. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers not only left the team’s season finale against the Detroit Lions with a concussion, but he also was transported to a local hospital via ambulance for testing per a report from WFRV-TV in Green Bay. It is unclear exactly what tests Rodgers underwent at the hospital but he did return to Lambeau Field and was in the locker room at the conclusion of the Packers’ 31-0 loss to the Detroit...

Open thread: Did the Lions make the right decision beating the Packers?

Did the Lions blow it by not tanking? It seems like there is rarely any good news for the Detroit Lions that doesn’t come with some sort of drawback. Yeah, Kerryon Johnson looks like the real deal, but his injury concerns manifested themselves in his rookie season. Sure, the Damon Harrison Sr. trade was a fantastic move by the Lions, but his efforts were wasted this year and he only has two more years left on his contract. The biggest example of that came on Sunday afternoon. The Detroit Lions absolutely demolished the Green Bay Packers, something every single Lions fan can appreciate....

Packers vs. Lions, Week 17: Second Half Game Thread

Rodgers is out. The Packers are getting shut out. The final game of the season is going as badly as it possibly could today. This has been about as ugly as it gets for the Green Bay Packers. In the first half of today’s game against the Detroit Lions, the Packers have been outscored 21-0. They have been outgained in yardage 261 to 67. The Lions have 16 first downs to the Packers’ three. Oh, and Aaron Rodgers left the game to be evaluated for a concussion. It’s basically as bad as it could get for a Packers team playing out the string.

Aaron Rodgers leaves Packers’ week 17 game for concussion evaluation

The Packers’ QB should be done for the day regardless of the result of the evaluation. It was never going to be a pleasant game for the Green Bay Packers today. With nothing to play for and wide receiver Davante Adams inactive, there was little to play for. Thus, the decision to continue suiting up Aaron Rodgers in uniform was one met with some frustration. That frustration seems justified, as Rodgers appears to be done early in the game due to an injury. Rodgers took a big hit on the first drive of the game, and his helmet came off on the play. However, he remained in the game for the...

Packers show no pride, Aaron Rodgers concussed in 31-0 loss to Lions

Green Bay was shut out at home for the third time in two years as the 2018 season finally came to its end. The Green Bay Packers sure didn’t look like a team for whom pride still mattered on Sunday. Facing the 5-10 Detroit Lions, the Packers were listless on offense, uninterested on defense, and simply bad on special teams once again. Green Bay allowed the Lions to run over, around, and through them throughout the game and saw a few key players leave the game to injury as they fell to the Lions 31-0 at Lambeau Field. The biggest injury was to quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He suffered a...

Packers Week 17 Inactives: Davante Adams sits, ends chase for team receiving records

Sterling Sharpe and Jordy Nelson are safe for another year. The Green Bay Packers will have to go another year to see a player challenge a pair of the team’s single-season records. Davante Adams was listed on the team’s inactive players list on Sunday for the week 17 game against the Detroit Lions due to a knee injury that he suffered last week against the New York Jets. Adams will finish this season with 111 receptions for 1,386 yards and 13 touchdowns.
