Randall Cobb’s Leaped Into The Fans And Exited With Ketchup On Jersey (Gif)

Leaping in the fans is always fun but it may be a messy experience. 
Randall Cobb loves to leap into the fans at Lambeau stadium. Today was a great day to be a Packers fan. After scoring a touchdown, Cobb jumped into the crowd and ended up with a stained jersey. But no need to worry, he was cleaned up.

Talk about first class service.

Luke Kuechly ejected after questionable call

When the officials become part of a story, you know there is something going on during a football game. That happened Sunday afternoon with the Green Bay Packers blowing out the Carolina Panthers. Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly was ejected for making contact with an official that had come up from behind him. It’s readily apparent in watching a replay of the video that Kuechly had no idea it was an official that came up from behind him. It seems that everyone is in agreement that this was a horrible call.
Luke Kuechly kicked out of the game. Ref grabbed him from behind and Kuechly swung his arm to get out of the hold. Unfair decision. — Around The NFL (@AroundTheNFL) October 19, 2014
Luckily for the officials and the NFL, this game was completely out of hand before Kuechly was ejected. The post Luke Kuechly Ejected from Packers-Panthers Game for no Apparent Reason appeared first on Sportsnaut.com.

Brett Favre: I got calls about playing last season

Brett Favre’s first NFL pass came with the Atlanta Falcons in 1991, and it resulted in a interception return for a touchdown. He was just a wide-eyed 21-year-old rookie who had started his college career during the Ronald Reagan Administration. After a Hall of Fame caliber 20-year NFL career, Favre called it quits as the league’s all-time leader in touchdown passes back in 2010. Now a few years removed from suiting up in a NFL game, Favre is enjoying his off time away from the league. This didn’t stop at least one team from calling up the now 45-year-old about returning to the NFL last season (via CBS Sports).
Brett Favre just turned 45 on October 10. But as recent as last season, teams were calling the then 44-year-old quarterback about suiting up in the NFL.
Favre appeared on NFL Network’s pregame show on Sunday morning and indicated that his agent Bus Cook received a call from at least one team in an attempt to get him to return to the league in 2013. But for Favre, he viewed this as nothing more

Week 7: Packers vs. Panthers Preview and Prediction

After a nailbiter last weekend in Miami, with the Green Bay Packers pulling out a 27-24 win over the Dolphins in the final seconds of the game to squish the Fish, the Packers today play host to the Carolina Panthers and one of the most dangerous players in the league, Cam Newton.What do we look for today? Packers QB Aaron Rodgers should have a big day against a porous and aging Panthers secondary. The front seven for Carolina can and likely will present challenges to the Pack, but as fast as Rodgers gets the ball out of his hands, he and the Pack’s talented receiving corps should rack up yardage and points.It would help, of course, if the Packers could once again get their running game going. Eddie Lacy had 14 carries for just 40 yards in the game against the Fins. James Starks provided a much-needed spark late in the game and particularly in the game-winning drive. We may see a similar rotation today unless the offensive line can create enough push for Lacy to get up a head of …

Packers secondary focused on preventing big plays

The Green Bay Packers defensive secondary gave up too many big plays in 2013 and with the safety position unable to record an interception either, improving the last line of defense was a priority this offseason. Cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt and safeties coach Darren Perry have been putting a heavy emphasis at stopping the big plays and making them instead. “You remember me talking at the beginning of the year,” Whitt said last week, via JSOnline. “It was less about interceptions and more about limiting explosives. “People are going to throw us the ball, and we’re going to catch ‘em. We just can’t allow them to catch that big one.” “It’s the biggest thing…the biggest thing,” said safeties coach Darren Perry. “We’ve got to make teams drive the ball on us.” “If we miss, it’s an explosive and demoralizes the defense,” Perry said. “When a back gets through there, that’s a tough tackle….

Kelvin Benjamin expected to play against Packers

Kelvin Benjamin will play in Sunday’s game against the Packers reports the Charlotte Observer’s Joe Person.
Benjamin, who is probable with a concussion, traveled with the Panthers on Saturday. That Benjamin traveled with the team is a good sign that he will be on the field come Sunday.
#Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion) made the trip to Wisconsin, per team official. All signs point to him playing Sun. vs. #Packers.

With Sam Shields already out for the Packers and Tramon Williams questionable there is good a good bit of upside surrounding Benjamin this week.
Benjamin will look to improve on his seven catches for 49 yards and a touchdown a week ago against the Bengals. In six games this season the 23-year-old Benjamin has 31 receptions for 416 yards and four touchdowns.

Eddie Lacy Needs More Touches

What Eddie Lacy did during his rookie season was impressive. Without him the Packers don’t win their third straight NFC North Division Title and miss the playoffs for the first time in five years. When Rodgers went down with his injury he became the vocal point of the offense. Lacy finished his rookie season with 1,178 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns.Heading into his second season many believed Lacy would improve on those numbers. With Aaron Rodgers healthy, many believed he’d have wide open running lanes. The Packers coaching staff believed he could lead the league in rushing. The coaching staff also hinted that Lacy would be more involved in the passing attack in 2014.Through six weeks, Lacy has 306 yard rushing to go along with three touchdowns on 80 attempts. He’s averaging a mediocre 3.8 yards per carry. Lacy is also only averaging 13 rushing attempts per game. As for being more involved in the passing attack; Lacy has 10 receptions for 76 yards.Why has Lacy struggled to find h…

Is Aaron Rodgers the best quarterback in the NFL?

View poll on FanMobGreen Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers looks like a genius after telling Cheesehead Nation to “Relax,” following a 1-2 start.
His team has reeled off three straight convincing victories, outscoring opponents 107-51 in those games.
Rodgers led a magical comeback win against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, throwing 264 yards and three touchdowns, including  a four-yard pass to Andrew Quarless with three seconds left to win the game 27-24.
Given Rodgers emergence in the last few weeks, shall we compare him to Peyton Manning, or even call him the best quarterback in the league?
Rodgers, in one extra game thus far, actually has 111 less passing yards than Manning.
They both have 15 touchdowns, and Rodgers has thrown two less interceptions. Manning’s 66.5 completion percentage is .9 percent better than Rodgers.
Rodgers is averaging 7.51 yards per completion, while Manning is averaging 8.01. Manning also has an 85.2 quarterback rating, Rodgers has 82.4
So the stats show that Manning’s

Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers is playing like a MVP

After he led the Green Bay Packers to the Super Bowl in 2010, Aaron Rodgers began his rise as one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL.  After he won the MVP in 2011, Rodgers solidified his place as a top five quarterback.  The last two years, Rodgers’ play has been overshadowed by the record breaking play of Adrian Peterson and Peyton Manning.  Before he broke his collarbone last year, Rodgers was on pace to thrown for over 4,500 yards and possibly break his career high for yards in a season.  Through six games this year, Rodgers is showing that he is once again a threat for the league MVP.
Probably the most impressive stat of Rodgers’ season is that he has only thrown one interception, that coming week one against the Seattle Seahawks.  However, that interception did bounce off the hands of Jordy Nelson, so realistically; Rodgers could have had no interceptions at this point in the season.  If you compare that to Andrew Luck and Matt Ryan, who lead the league in passing yards, both of them have seve

The Burke Blotter: Where is Clay Matthews?

If anyone has purchased any cartons of milk lately, you might see a familiar face on it.
He’s 6’3″, 255 lbs. and his hair is unmistakable. He also has added a beard in the past few months.
If you have seen Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, please contact the Packers at 1265 Lombardi Ave. in Green Bay, WI.
Matthews has completely disappeared this season. With general manager Ted Thompson going out of his way in free agency to add Julius Peppers, the thought was Matthews would have a stellar 2014 now that he finally had some help with the pass rush.
Instead he has gone AWOL. Peppers has been as good as advertised but it has been Matthews that looks like a slow 34-year old.
Matthews had no tackles last week against the Miami Dolphins and had only one against the Minnesota Vikings the week before that. For a guy who signed a contract not too long ago making him the richest linebacker in football, these statistics are unacceptable.
Is he hurt? Matthews did injure his groin earl…
