The only thing that the Packers can do to erase any and all memories from the Beltway Beatdown in Washington, is to have a good week of practice,...

Charlie Tritschler of takes a look at the defensive backs on the Packers roster heading into the season.

The third-year cornerback has the chance to flourish at slot corner, a premium position in today's game. 

Having some firepower at tight end this season will be a huge boon to the Green Bay Packers offense, but it's very likely that the free-agent addition that will have the biggest impact on the field this season is neither Martellus Bennett nor Lance Kendricks, but cornerback Davon House. 

It looks like the cornerback position is going to get worse before it gets better for the Packers, as they waived former undrafted free agent...

In 2010, the Packers defense got them into the Super Bowl. In virtually every season since, it's killed them in the playoffs. Aaron Rodgers and this offense deserve another ring, and as the window continues to close, perhaps it's time to make a drastic change to ensure they get one. 

On Sunday night against the Detroit Lions, however, the unit suffered a series of additional blows. Quinten Rollins left the game strapped to a board to go to the hospital after a scary-looking hit to his head/neck; per Mike McCarthy, he avoided serious injury but there's no word on whether he'll be able to go on Sunday against the Giants. Both Damarious Randall and Makinton Dorleant left the game with knee injuries, Randall is considered day-to-day, while Dorleant said initial tests showed no major structural damage.  It's been a rough road for the Packers secondary, which has been hampered by injuries all season. The team has needed leaders and playmakers to step up from within its ranks in its postseason push, and a key weapon who could be instrumental in the playoffs became clear in Week 17: defensive back Micah Hyde. 

The 6-6 Green Bay Packers have gotten themselves into a situation in which every game has become a must-win. Two games back from the Detroit Lions and tied, record-wise, with the Minnesota Vikings but not currently holding the tiebreaker against them, Green Bay now has to beat the Seahawks, Bears, Vikings, and Lions to stay in the hunt for the playoffs.  Needless to say, it's imperative that every player turns it up to 11 over this final stretch and taps into his deepest reserve of aggression. The Packers have to want this more than anyone else. And, as far as the secondary goes, that's exactly what cornerback LaDarius Gunter has been doing. 

The Packers defense is taking on the No. 1 wide receiver in football in Week 8 in Altanta's Julio Jones, and their best option for coverage on him looks like an undrafted free agent who is third on the depth chart: LaDarius Gunter.  

As the Philadelphia Eagles marched up and down the field against the Green Bay Packers No. 1 defense on Saturday night en route to a 39-point first...

Bleacher Report's NFL analyst and former NFL safety likes what he sees in Green Bay.

The Atlanta Falcons wide receiver had 259 yards, the most ever allowed by the Packers in a single game.

If it weren't for some misfired passes and dropped footballs, the Packers secondary might have gotten torched.

On Monday I joined Drew Glaeser of K107 in Fond du Lac for our weekly Green Bay Packers game review.

Davon House and company will have their work cut out for them lining up across from a trio of big Bears receivers.

In our best-case scenario, Sam Shields is named to his first Pro Bowl, but in our worst-case scenario, Tramon Williams loses his long-time grip on a starting job in the Packers secondary.

The Packers are second in the NFL with 51 interceptions since 2011 but surprisingly have only two so far this season.

Tramon Williams covering the slot, Davon House out on the perimeter and Chris Banjo at safety were among the looks the Packers showed in Week 2.

The Packers safety is looking to put an early season hamstring injury behind him so he can take part in Green Bay's home opener on Sunday against Washington.

The return of safety Morgan Burnett and slot cornerback Casey Hayward will be a boon to a Packers secondary working with lesser talent.

Once Casey Hayward and Tramon Williams are back to 100 percent, Hyde's quickest path to playing time may be at safety.

In our worst-case scenario, Mason Crosby bottoms out. He can't seem to hit the broad side of a barn with his kicks and is eventually cut.

In our best-case scenario, Morgan Burnett grabs at least five interceptions in 2013 and is named to the first Pro Bowl of his career.

In our best-case scenario, Casey Hayward is able to exceed the six interceptions he grabbed during his rookie season in the NFL.

Cornerbacks Casey Hayward and Tramon Williams are among the NFL leaders in passes defended.

After a fantastic season in 2010, several members of the Packers defensive backfield regressed more than many expected.

Whichever team gets improved play at the safety position compared to the last time the two teams met should have a much better chance of winning this Sunday's game at Lambeau Field.

Packers safeties coach Darren Perry can help facilitate a turnaround in the secondary by stressing one very simple correction with his guys.
