My immediate thoughts on the Packers - Bears game without benefit of a re-watch. ... It's going to be real interesting to see what the Packers running game looks like tonight... - Ty Montgomery takes the first snap at RB, then Don Jackson. - On the first drive, what's not working is the slower developing play action passes. What IS working is the quick routes in...

Early in the second quarter on Thursday night, Chicago Bears quarterback Brian Hoyer went down hard after being sandwiched between two Green Bay Packers defenders. He left the game as soon as he was able, heading straight into the locker room while making sure not to move his left arm. Bears QB Brian Hoyer just walked to locker room, making sure not to move left arm. Looks like...
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy blames the newest collective bargaining agreement from 2011 for the increase in injuries in the league due to less practices. He was quoted by NFL.com’s Mike Garafolo: “I think it’s clearly a reflection of the training part of it. People don’t want to hear coaches say that, but how can you not be in tune to the fact you have...

The Green Bay Packers will likely start Thursday night’s game against the Chicago Bears with a receiver at running back behind Aaron Rodgers. With Eddie Lacy (ankle) and James Starks (knee) already ruled out, and Knile Davis still learning the offense after a Tuesday trade to Green Bay, the Packers are now in a position where Ty Montgomery—a receiver who played a significant...
The 191st match-up between the Packers and Bears will take place tonight, and with both teams riddled with injuries, there may be a lot more to keep an eye on than most think. Reserves will get a lot of action for the Packers, including the likes of Kentrell Brice and, depending whether or not they pull the trigger on promoting him, Don Jackson. Perhaps the move has been made, but...

If any game before Halloween can be described as a must-win, tonight’s battle against the 1-5 Bears at Lambeau Field fits the criteria. Minus their top running back, top corner and franchise quarterback (I have no idea who’s wearing No. 12 these days), it’s difficult to imagine the Packers getting to the postseason without a victory tonight. Heck, they might not get there...

Rodgers, who threw eight or less interceptions each season from 2011 through 2015, already has four this year. He has thrown nine picks in his last 11 games dating back to last season, and the five-time Pro Bowler is missing throws...

The Green Bay Packers surprised the globe Monday by agreeing to a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs, netting running back Knile Davis. Talk about a win. Anybody who saw the Packers take a 30-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6 understood the running game was a mess. Eddie Lacy has averaged a strong 5.1 yards per carry but has been hobbled.

Jeff Pearlman’s new book sheds some new light on just how frosty the Brett Favre/Aaron Rodgers relationship really was. That there was conflict there shouldn’t have been a surprise. Beyond the normal generational issues that arise when the veteran has his obvious replacement on the roster.
