Packers Will Make A Wild Card Spot This Season

The NFC North is all about Brett Favre. If Favre plays this season for the Vikings, It will be a tough race between the Vikings and Packers. Do the Bears and Lions have a better team then last season? Maybe they will compete for a wild card spot… read on to find out.

2. Green Bay Packers: The Packers had a disappointing end to their season when they lost to the Cardinals in the playoffs in overtime. Everytime they lost last season, their defense let them down. Every single one of their losses, the Packers let up at least 30 points in the game. Two out of the Packers five losses also came from their division rival Vikings. If the Packers want to go further into the playoffs this season, they will have to find a way to beat the Vikings. Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Last season Rodgers had near MVP numbers with 30 touchdowns and only seven interceptions, giving him a quarterback rating of 103.2. Rodgers should thank his two great receivers Greg Jennings and Donald Driver for his success last season. The Packers running back Ryan Grant had a bounce back season last year and I think he will continue to improve this season. The Packers defense did not improve in my eyes with the departure of Aaron Kampman to the Jaguars. I think the Packers will struggle beating the Vikings again this season. The Packers will have to rely even more on their offense this season to outscore their opponents. I think the Packers will finish with the same record of 11-5 this season.

Havner arrested following crash

Green Bay Packers tight end Spencer Havner was arrested this week on suspicion of drunken driving after crashing his motorcycle in Northern California, suffering a broken shoulder blade.

The California Highway Patrol says the 27-year-old Havner was arrested Monday after the accident about 2:45 a.m. some 50 miles north of Sacramento.

Mark Humenik, whose agency represents Havner, says the player should be “fully recovered in short order.” Messages left with the Packers and the NFL were not immediately returned Wednesday.

The district attorney’s office in Nevada County, Calif., say they are awaiting the police report before deciding whether to file any charges against Havner.

Former LB Havner now pass-catching threat for Pack

Nobody expected the Spencer Havner experiment to work out quite like this – not even Havner himself.

Three months after coaches let the backup linebacker begin taking snaps at tight end in training camp, Havner has become a bona fide pass catching threat.

Making the most of his increased playing time in the wake of an injury to tight end Jermichael Finley, Havner has caught three touchdowns in the Packers’ past two games, tying him with Donald Driver for the team lead.

“All he does is catch touchdowns,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said.

Not bad for a guy whose standout career as a linebacker at UCLA previously led him to nothing more than life on the fringe of the NFL with three separate stints on the Packers’ practice squad.

Green Bay Packers players help build playground at Nicolet Elementary School in Green Bay

As a wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers, James Jones has enjoyed some memorable moments on the playing field.


On Tuesday, he was excited to join teammates in a different kind of endeavor: building a playground addition for students at Nicolet Elementary School on Green Bay’s northeast side.

“It’s big to be able to come out here and put some smiles on kids’ faces,” Jones said.
He was joined by teammates Al Harris, T.J. Lang, Breno Giacomini and Evan Dietrich-Smith in the playground project, a partnership with Brown County United Way.

It was part of the NFL-United Way Hometown Huddle, a community outreach effort marking its 11th year in NFL communities throughout the country.

Green Bay Packers haven't signed RB Ahman Green yet

The Green Bay Packers have signed running back Ahman Green, bringing back another veteran.

Faced with a need at the position after third-down back DeShawn Wynn hurt his knee, the Packers turned to Green, who has been out of football since being cut by Houston in February. He left the Packers to sign with the Texans as a free agent for the 2007 season but struggled, gaining 554 yards in 14 games over two seasons.

Green needs 46 more yards to surpass Jim Taylor’s franchise rushing record of 8,207.

Short-passing game aiding the run

In the early 1990s, Mike Holmgren’s Green Bay Packers couldn’t run the ball. Not with any kind of consistency anyway.


So early in his first season, 1992, the former Packers coach used a substitute, the short-passing game, with mostly check downs and screens.

From 1992 to 1995, Holmgren’s Packers never averaged more than 3.7 yards a carry for a season, hardly the kind of running game that gave opponents pause and certainly a liability against the league’s best defenses. But in those same four seasons, Holmgren compensated, to a degree at least, by throwing to his backs:

Vince Workman and Harry Sydney (98 catches combined) in ’92, and Edgar Bennett from ’93 to ’95 (an average of 66.3 receptions a season).

Packers have easy time with Lions

The Green Bay Packers moved back toward their roots in the West Coast offense with good, but not great, results.


They surely accomplished their most important goal on Sunday at Lambeau Field, beating the under-talented and short-handed Detroit Lions 26-0 in a game that was about as easy as wins come in the NFL.

But the Packers also are searching for the rhythm to an offense that figured to be one of the NFL’s best but instead has been underwhelming early in the 2009 season.

To that end, they turned to more of a short, ball-control passing game that moved the ball with far more ease (435 yards) than in the previous four games.

But it was far from an unmitigated success because of familiar problems that have short-circuited them since the start of the regular season, namely penalties (seven on offense) and leaky pass protection that though improved from their last game at Minnesota, still allowed five sacks.
