Running back Ahman Green’s career is remembered by Packers bloggers after officially announcing his retirement on Thursday. “Green came at a perfect time, just as RB Dorsey Levens had worn out, and they needed a new feature back,” writes Brandon Benson of Acme Packing Company. “He was a great runner, and a solid receiver, who also had the fortune to work behind a great offensive line in the early 2000s.”
Another former Packer is remembered, this time in death however, as kicker Don Chandler passed away. “Chandler still holds the Packers’ records of most consecutive games scoring (42) and most field goals in a Super Bowl (four in 1968),” according to Lombardi Ave. “In addition to his time with the Packers, Chandler was also a member of the New York Giants when they won the NFL championship in 1956.”

The linebacker position gets some attention at Acme Packing Company. “There are currently 15 linebackers listed on their roster. They’ll probably keep 8 to 10 active, and at least one more on the practice squad. The starters are familiar to everyone here, with Frank Zombo and Erik Walden likely battling for the open outside linebacker spot, but other linebackers are a collection of late round draft choices and undrafted free agents. I’d be shocked if Brad Jones didn’t keep his roster spot, but otherwise there are no obvious keepers among the other nine linebackers.”
