Packers will wear blue-and-gold uniform in Week Three

The Packers announced Thursday they will wear their “historic third jersey” in Week Three against the Broncos at Lambeau Field. The jersey is a re-creation of Green Bay’s blue-and-gold look from 1937-48. Those teams won two of the Packers’ 13 championships. The Packers have worn the throwback four times previously.

NFL, NFLPA: We had “productive, constructive and beneficial” CBA talks

The NFL and NFLPA gathered for their fourth set of talks about a new Collective Bargaining Agreement on Wednesday and the schedule called for the meetings to last for three days.

Aaron Rodgers on Aaron Donald: Your entire game plan is stopping him

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has faced a lot of defensive players over the course of his career, but none have been tougher than a player he shared a locker room with for seven years. During an interview with Chris Simms, Rodgers was asked about the best player he’s ever gone against and his answer was [more]

Aaron Rodgers reiterates faith in what he can do at the line of scrimmage

The so-called “audible thing” hovers over the Packers, and the contours of the conundrum are clearly drawn. New coach Matt LaFleur’s offense entails two plays being called in the huddle, and the quarterback (via application of specific parameters) selecting one of them at the line of scrimmage. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers wants more freedom, saying this [more]

Packers giving away free grass at team birthday party

Packers fans turned wearing hunks of cheese-colored foam rubber on their heads into a thing. These people obviously have a taste for non-standard collectibles, and perhaps recreational agriculture. The latest must-have for Packers fans is, of course, grass seed; and they’re giving it away as part of the team’s 100-year celebration. According to Richard Ryman [more]

Saints to expand package of tight end plays for Jared Cook

It took a little time for Saints tight end Jared Cook to officially join the team. Since then, the team apparently has been spending plenty of time coming up with ways to use him. “New tight end comes in for us this year,” coach Sean Payton recently told Chris Simms. “Jared Cook from Oakland. We’re [more]

Aaron Rodgers’ Madden rating plummets

The full Madden ratings have been released, and a certain player with a reputation for being a tad sensitive may not be happy with the number he received. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who last year was one of seven players to get a game-high 99, has fallen all the way to 90. Still the No. [more]

Marquez Valdes-Scantling working out with Randy Moss

The Packers used to struggle for ways to stop Randy Moss when he was a receiver for the Vikings, but Moss may wind up helping the team out this year. Wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling‘s offseason work got a rave review from quarterback Aaron Rodgers and part of the reason may be because of who the [more]

Packers’ increased spending takes major bite out of profits (but they still turned a profit)

When it comes to the ability of a business to earn money, the impact of earnings can be viewed in multiple ways. For the Packers, for example, the notion that the team had record revenues in its most recent fiscal year is balanced by the reality that, as explained by the Associated Press, profits dropped [more]

Mark Murphy supports 17 games a regular-season compromise

Given the conflicting quotes attributed to Packers CEO Mark Murphy on Friday, I opted to pretend to be an actual reporter and do some actual reporting. Short story shorter, I got Murphy on the phone to clarify his thoughts on a potentially expanded regular season. Murphy said that he remains opposed to 18 games, a [more]

Jaire Alexander predicts All-Pro honors this season

Jaire Alexander didn’t make the Pro Bowl as a rookie. The Packers cornerback did make 11 starts, 61 tackles and an interception, getting his career off to a solid start. The 18th overall choice in 2018 has bigger goals this season. “Year two? I’m going to be All-Pro. Everything else will take care of itself,” [more]

Mark Murphy changes his tune on more regular-season games, dramatically

The formal and official push for 18 regular-season games has begun. The latest, and perhaps best, evidence of it comes from comments made Friday by Packers CEO Mark Murphy at the team’s annual shareholders meeting. “What we do know is our current preseason is not a good product,” Murphy said, via Darren Rovell of TheActionNetwork.com.

Packers report record revenues, expenses

As the league’s only publicly held team, the Packers are the only ones who have to show their books on an annual basis. And this year’s glimpse shows record amounts of money going in and out. According to Richard Ryman of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Packers reported a record revenue of $477.9 million last year, [more]

Aaron Rodgers: Replay review for pass interference may help the defenses more than offenses

The NFL reacted to the Rams-Saints NFC Championship game debacle by overreacting, creating a new mechanism for making all pass interference calls and non-calls subject to replay review, which apparently will entail the kind of frame-by-frame molasses-in-January deliberations by the league office that bog down the game and create even more controversy. Packers quarterback Aaron [more]

Packers discourage selling tickets to shareholders meeting

The Packers are usually a tough ticket home or road, but the team’s now in the unusual position of trying to quash the secondary market for tickets to their annual shareholders meeting. According to Richard Ryman of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Packers are trying to discourage shareholders from selling their tickets to the meeting. [more]
