Blake Martinez of the Green Bay Packers not only tied for leading the NFL in tackles this season, but also finds some time to play Dota 2 on the side. Though he currently plays under “Packernation50,” Martinez told the story of his induction to the cult of Dota at yesterday’s Captains Draft 4.0 tournament—including…
One day after falling to the Lions and locking up their first losing season since 2008, the Green Bay Packers will make several changes. Ted Thompson has been with the team since 1992—save for a four-year spell in Seattle—and he served as the team’s general manager from 2005 until today, when he was reassigned within…
It wasn’t just cold at Lambeau Field. With the temperature at 13 below zero at kickoff, and the wind chill at 36 below, Dec. 31, 1967, ranked as the coldest New Year’s Eve day that Green Bay, Wisconsin, had ever witnessed.
Welcome to Bad Quarterback Performance Of The Week, a recurring feature in which we celebrate the worst quarterback play the NFL has to offer.
As Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis was blocking for Colin Jones following an interception during the team’s win over the Packers on Sunday, he leapt into Davante Adams’s helmet. Adams was defenseless and unsuspecting, and he sustained a concussion. Davis was penalized on the play, and today he was suspended for two…
Clay Matthews was close, and Cam Newton even lauded the Packers linebacker’s consumption of tape. But Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey ran a slant instead of a wheel route and scored the team’s first touchdown of the day.
Aaron Rodgers returned to action today against the Panthers, and ended the first quarter by throwing a touchdown pass to Davante Adams. But let’s talk about what’s really important: the touchdown celebration Packers receivers pulled off afterward.
Packers center and true gentleman Corey Linsley didn’t quite get his blocking instructions right on the first go-round. But he served as an example for all of us when he quickly owned up to his mistake and corrected it.
Here’s some rapturous or possibly terrifying news for NFL fans of various affiliations: the Green Bay Packers have activated Aaron Rodgers from injured reserve.
Eight weeks after he went down with a broken collarbone and seemingly took the Packers’ playoff hopes down with him, Aaron Rodgers has been medically cleared to return—with, of course, those playoff hopes still alive and now more fearsome than ever.
It looked like this was going to be the day that the 2008 0-16 Lions could finally break out the champagne. The 0-12 Cleveland Browns were up 21-7 on Green Bay at the start of the fourth quarter, in perfect position to get their first win since Christmas Eve 2016.
Newly acquired Patriots tight end Martelleus Bennett was on the field for seven snaps last night, catching three balls for 38 yards. It was a strange place for him to be, given that just days earlier he had been released by the Packers for failing to disclose what appeared to be a serious shoulder injury. So what…
After getting cut by the Packers on Wednesday for “failure to disclose a medical condition” and signing with the Patriots on Thursday, Martellus Bennett gave his side of the story about how his time in Green Bay ended in a long, expletive-filled rant on Instagram.
The Green Bay Packers announced today that they’ve cut TE Martellus Bennett, tagging him with the “failure to disclose a medical condition” designation. That label will allow the Packers to potentially reclaim $4.2 million out of Bennett’s signing bonus from when he signed a three-year contract with the team in March.
The Packers’ quarterback situation is suddenly very dire. Aaron Rodgers is likely out for the season with a broken collarbone, and the team now has to start Brett Hundley, a former fifth-round pick with 44 career NFL pass attempts. Perhaps even more worrying is the fact that behind Hundley is Joe Callahan, a former…
To the extent that there has been any joy to be found in the NFL this year, it was Aaron Rodgers that delivered it. In a season otherwise dominated by bad quarterbacks, bad games, lazy blowouts, and the noisy co-opting of demonstrations originally meant to protest racial injustice, Rodgers was both brilliant and fun.…
After taking what looked like a hard hit from Anthony Barr after a throw, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has left the game against Minnesota. While Rodgers initially walked off the field under his own power, he was carted to the locker room soon after.
Here’s a Florida Man story that’s just, like, a little too on the nose—a 27-year-old guy in Vero Beach who was hospitalized with second- and third-degree burns after setting himself on fire when he lost a bet on Sunday’s Packers-Cowboys game.
A pair of missed extra points from Mason Crosby looked like they could be the difference in a Green Bay loss today, but instead, they simply set the stage for yet another signature Aaron Rodgers comeback at Cowboys Stadium, and Green Bay won 35-31.
