Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: Packers transactions
« Last post by JQ on Today at 10:38:48 AM »
All of Wisconsin can rejoice now - sounds like the Packers will bring Jake Kummerow off of IR and put him on the active roster.  Will be interesting to see if he moves into the WR rotation and sees some time.  I think everyone would love to see it.

Per Demovsky:

The Packers have activated WR/preseason star Jake Kumerow off IR to practice. So that's it for IR-return spots. Teams get two and they already used one on Trevor Davis. If Kumerow ends up playing, all of Wisconsin will rejoice.

This is a huge game for McCarthy's future.  Even winning it may not be enough for him.   This game will tell you a lot about the mindset of this team going forward, and Rodgers body language will be interesting to watch in this one.

It is indeed a huge game for Mike McCarthy, his staff and the team. I think people spend way too much time over analyzing Aaron's body language, supposed messages between the lines - next people will be playing his interviews backwards and finding hidden messages.

Aaron Rodgers is a great QB, who has not been playing very well. He and the Green Bay Packers have certainly underachieved to this point in the season and have played themselves to a situation that their backs are against the wall. It is essentially playoff (do or die) football from here on out. The first game of the.i any hope for a playoff run starts on Sunday night. It sure would be great for the Pack to get their first win at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Packers vs. Vikings:
Regular season, all-time: 59-52-3
All-time, Postseason: 1-1
All-time, in Minnesota 28-28
Coaches Head to Head: 4-4-1

As you can see their has been little give in this series in its history. Many of the games have been classic battles, some bringing great joy to Packers fans and others great heartbreak. What does this weeks game hold for each team?

I personally have witnessed some of these games in person and thought it might be interesting if some people may want to share some of their own best or worst memories of this series. Growing up in western Wisconsin as a Packers fan, in a period when the Vikings dominated the Packers year after year on the field, I learned my hate for them at an early age. From 1968-1979 the Packers only won 3 of 23 meetings with the Vikings, but freezing my butt off in Bloomington in December of 1972 is a day this Packers fan will never forget as GB defeated the Purple People Eaters 23-7.


I was not at these games, but who will ever forget Antonio Freeman's amazing catch in OT in 2000(?) or Favre cut the Vikings up on Christmas eve of 2004. Their has been a very long list of great moments. If you have your own, please share.

This is time for the Packers to turn the season around, or get ready to watch the playoffs from home this season. This is their last real chance to become real contenders, or pretenders. This season has been a monumental disappointment, and the team seems rudderless, with a lot of players expressing frustration, but nobody coming up with solutions. Everyone seems to be looking at the others, waiting for someone else to make "that play" that turns things around. Unfortunately, the plays that have turned things around have all helped the opponent win games the Packers (coulda/shoulda/woulda) possibly won. Good teams find ways to win. Bad teams find ways to lose. Can this team turn it around? Yes. Will they? We'll find out Sunday night.

Rodger's sack total is typically elevated because of his refusal to throw to the open guy early (or maybe he just doesn't see it). He does his oline no favors.

 WR's that gain Rodgers' trust and consistently get open would make every team ranking across both offense and defense look better.  I don't put too much into PFF ratings. Funny seeing Bakhtiari get snubbed for the Pro Bowl and make the All Pro team. Anyway, about to hit an easier stretch in the schedule. Surely about to pad the stats that people want.

Rt gotta say when you post I more often agree . Not only when you say something you have facts to back it up. You put up number for your point of view, and numbers don't generally lie. But the o-line does not pass the eyeball test! Not talking about the tackles but the guards. There is just to much pressure up the middle and because of that Rodgers is getting happy feet . I feel we need better players in in those positions. You stated that most teams keep there own lineman which I agree, but it still wouldn't take much to get better there. Not asking for the most expensive free agent, just better than the ones we have.

The Green Bay Packers signed WR Teo Redding to the practice squad.

 Redding, a 6-foot-1, 176-pound rookie, was originally signed by the Detroit Lions as an undrafted free agent out of Bowling Green on May 11. After being released by the Lions on Aug. 31, he spent a week on the practice squad of the Washington Redskins. Redding earned second-team All-Mid-American Conference honors in 2017 after leading the team with eight receiving touchdowns. He will wear No. 88 for the Packers.
