Packers News 10/25/12

Jayme: Order has seemingly been restored in the Packers universe, having managed to string  together two victories in a row for the first time this season. Aaron Rodgers has also returned to form with his fourth straight game with a quarterback rating over 100.

Al: Not retuning to form quickly enough has been Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings. Still sidelined by a groin injury he re-aggravated in the Saints game, Jennings sought out a second opinion from a specialist this week. The result was a change of course in treating the injury from rest to surgery. Jennings will undergo surgery next Tuesday and the prognosis is that he will  return within a month.

Jayme: Packers injuries dominated the news this week, with Jordy Nelson tweaking a hamstring in practice and the announcement that Charles Woodson has a broken collarbone – the same injury he suffered in the Super Bowl. Woodson will be out for six weeks, while Nelson was held out of practice the last two days and will give the hamstring a test tomorrow.

Al: There’s been a bit of friendly pranking going on among the Packers receiver corps. A while back James Jones decorated Greg Jennings car on his birthday, and filled it up with packing peanuts. This week, Jennings got his revenge. Jones came out to his car after practice and discovered similar decorations with one major difference: his wheels were gone and the car was up on blocks. Jones later jokingly proclaimed, “This means war”

Jayme: In the wake of this week’s tragic shootings at the Azana Spa in Brookfield Wisconsin, Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Braun have promised to hold some type of benefit event for the families of the victims. Rodgers and Braun are partners in a restaurant in Brookfield and expressed a desire to do something to help. Details should be forthcoming soon.

CheeseheadRadio News 10-04-12: With Ty Dunne

CheeseheadRadio News 10-04-12:

Al:  Well, the Packers survived a scare from the Saints and Jeff Tripplette to persevere and hang on to an  important home win. The Saints were a desperate team, not wanting to go 0-4, and played like it. The referees performed more like their replacements did the week before, missing some obvious calls that almost cost the Packers a win. Fortunately, they pulled it out and evened their record to 2-2.

Amanda:  Speaking of the replacement referees, seems their still in the news. Wayne Ellliot, crew chief during the Packers Seahawks game, admitted this week that they made the wrong call on the last play of the game, even though the NFL upheld the ruling. I appreciate his honesty, but confirmation that the NFL handling of the matter was a sham  just adds insult to injury.

Al: Two more interesting things from Elliot. First, he revealed that during their training, the replacement officials were instructed not to call offensive interference on Hail Mary passes, but rather to just let it go. Elliot also said that Mike McCarthy called him and left a voice mail with some kind words, commending him on his handling of the situation, regardless of whether it was the right call or not.

Amanda:  Returning to the Packers this week was Mike Neal, who has completed his four game suspension and returned to practice this week. The Packers can add him right now or have the option to wait a week before deciding whether to put him on the active roster. According to Mike McCarthy, neal retuned to the team in outstanding physical condition and showed no signs of getting winded in  practice. Neal said this is the best he’s felt in 3 years.

Al: Not feeling so good is Greg Jennings, who re-injured his groin during the Saints game. Jennings expressed his extreme frustration this week and vowed he would not come back until it was 100% healed, whatever the timetable. Between this recurring injury and a preseason concussion, Jennings has missed significant time in what is an important year for him, contract-wise.

CheeseheadRadio News 09-20-12

Al: Well, Packer Nation took a collective sigh of relief seven days ago, as the Green Bay defense rose from the ashes of their first game disappointment and put a beating on Jay Cutler and the Bears. Youth was served as Dom Capers ramped up the playing time for Packers rookies and he was duly rewarded with an exuberant performance from the rookies and the defense, in particular.

Jayme:  Speaking of resurgences, the Packers offense, while still not fully clicking, found a running game against the Bears. Starting running back  Cedric Benson returned the benefits the Packers had hoped for when they signed him, rushing for 81 yards in 20 attempts and catching 4 passes for another 35 yards. In addition to those stats, Benson had one more important one – no fumbles.

Al:  The Packers had some fun in the media after this game, especially Charles Woodson, who had plenty to say about Jay Cutler and his “Good Luck” comments. Woodson said the Packers had a good laugh in the Locker room about Cutler’s comments, and then went on to say, “We don’t need Luck, Jay will throw us the ball.” And he did – four times…

Jayme:   Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, but that wasn’t necessary for Packers punter Tim Masthay. As he has done in their last few meetings, Masthay neutralized the dangerous Devin Hester with some high, long and well-placed punts. Masthay was recognized for his efforts by being named the NFC Special teams player of the week.

Al:  As the Packers prepare for the Seahawks, they were seemingly getting healthier by the minute. I’m sure the 10 days between games was a big help, as both Greg Jennings and James Starks were back participating in a fully padded practice on Tuesday. Jennings, however,  was held out of practice today and coach Mike McCarthy said the injury is not healing as quickly as they had hoped.

CheeseheadRadio News 09-12-12: Come off the Ledge Edition with Matt Bowen

Weekly Green Bay Packers News from Twitter and other Sources by Al Bracco and Jayme Joers (As heard on Cheesehead Radio – 09/12/12 ). Special Guest was Matt Bowen of National Football Post and together we analyzed the Packers performance against the 49ers.

Al: Well, Packers fans, I’m afraid the quest for a perfect season in 2012 is over before it even got started.  Green Bay had the misfortune of having to open up against in what my opinion is the the best overall team in the NFC. The Packers confirmed my fears that they just weren’t ready yet for this type of contest. But there’s still plenty of season for this team to grow and they now know the level of performance they’ll have to raise their game to.

Jayme:  Talking about the game to the media, Mike McCarthy was typically understated in commenting on two recurring issues, the lack of a running game and miscommunication in the secondary. McCarthy said he’d like to see the team have, as he called it, “some semblance of a running game.” McCarthy then promised the secondary coaches would spend 10 to 15 minutes discussing the issues in the 49ers game.

Al:  10-15 minutes doesn’t seem like enough to me, but… perhaps there’s little time to reflect on Sunday as the Packers have the Bears coming up tomorrow night. And as they prepare for Chicago, it’s possible the Packers may be without Their All-Pro wide receiver Greg Jennings. Jennings suffered  a groin injury towards the very end of the 49ers game, which resulted in Donald Driver getting his only 3 snaps of the game.

Jayme: Speaking of pains in the groin, Bears QB Jay Cutler was shooting his mouth off this week. Evidently, Cutler is as giddy as a toddler at Chuckie Cheese over his new partners in the pass-completion business. Cutler wished the Packers defensive backs “Good Luck” in trying to cover his new receivers. I guess you can’t blame him now that he has some guys that can bail him out  on all those bad passes he throws.
