Cory’s Corner: Packers’ season depends on stopping the run

The Packers have reached the halfway point of the season. The moment the 2014 schedule was released on April 23, I expected a 6-2 mark at the bye. Nobody could’ve predicted that B.J. Raji and Don Barclay would be lost for the season, but a 5-3 record after playing three of the first four games […]

Cory’s Corner: The 300-yard passing game has lost its luster

The fourth-year running back has tied Jim Brown’s record with six-straight 100-yard games to begin the year. If he hits the century mark in Week 7, he has an NFL record for […]
