Dave Birkett Detroit Free Press Published 6:01 AM EDT Oct 12, 2019 Free Press sports writer Dave Birkett breaks down the Detroit Lions' Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers, set for 8:15 p.m. on Monday Night Football at Lambeau Field: Lions run offense vs. Packers run defense Kerryon Johnson had his best game of the season the last time we saw him, taking apart the Kansas City Chiefs’ 30th-ranked rushing defense for 125 yards on 26 carries. The Packers are almost as bad against the run, giving up 138.2 yards per game, 26th most in the NFL. The Packers shut down Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys’ running game by playing more base defense than usual last week, and they could try that approach again Monday. Johnson doesn’t have a run longer than 14 yards this season, but he runs hard and gets the yards that are there. T.J. Hockenson should return from the concussion he suffered against the Chiefs, which will help the Lions’ run blocking. … [Read more...] about Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers: Scouting report, prediction

Associated Press Published 11:56 AM EDT May 26, 2019 Green Bay, Wis. – Bart Starr, the Green Bay Packers quarterback and catalyst of Vince Lombardi’s powerhouse teams of the 1960s, has died. He was 85. The Packers announced Sunday that Starr had died, citing his family. He had been in failing health since suffering a serious stroke in 2014. The Packers chose Starr out of the University of Alabama with the 200th pick in the 1956 draft, and after Lombardi’s arrival in 1959, Starr led Green Bay to six division titles, five NFL championships and wins in the first two Super Bowls. But it was in the “Ice Bowl” on New Year’s Eve 1967 that Starr secured his legacy, scoring on a sneak with 16 seconds left to give Green Bay a 21-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Starr was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977. … [Read more...] about Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr dies at 85
Nick Baumgardner Detroit Free Press Published 6:01 AM EDT Apr 26, 2019 Rashan Gary became the No. 1-ranked college prospect in America in 2016 primarily as a defensive tackle. Then he came to Michigan and played strongside defensive end. Now he's a Green Bay Packer. And possibly an outside linebacker? The Packers took the Michigan defensive lineman No. 12 overall in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft on Thursday in Nashville, Tenn. Intrigued by Gary's versatility, Green Bay, which runs a 3-4 front, will experiment a bit. “He’ll start in the outside linebacker room. He’s a guy because of his size and speed and versatility, you’d hope you can move him around the front,” Packers scout Joe Hueber told reporters Thursday night. “He’s done some standup stuff already. He’s had to play multiple positions and move around. Probably needs to learn some of the (coverage) drop stuff. "But as far as rushing the … [Read more...] about Green Bay Packers to try Rashan Gary at outside linebacker
