We’re glad to know the get well card we sent to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler after he stood around with a dumb look on his face for the second half of the NFC Championship game paid off. Cutler, who “sprained his knee” at the beginning of the third quarter, is back to playing football now that nothing at all is on the line.

We’ve been hemming and hawing about the Green Bay Packers not organizing workouts during the lockout, but we have nothing to worry about when it comes to one player — linebacker Clay Matthews. Last week we got a chance to check out Matthews’ workouts first hand.

Green Bay Packers quarterback [intlink id="25" type="category"]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink] has a new job: music producer. Well, maybe not producer, but Rodgers has started a record label called Suspended Sunrise Recordings. The company’s initial project is with a band called The Make, from Rodgers’ hometown of Chico, Calif. For those of you wondering what the hell the Packers’ […]

We’re dropping some real football knowledge this morning, courtesy of the Los Angeles Times’ NFL writer, Sam Farmer. Farmer is seriously keyed in and he doesn’t make you want to stab yourself in the eyes when you read his work, like, say, a certain Sports Illustrated writer. In addition to being all over the lockout, […]

Former Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle John Randle, who had a very public rivalry with quarterback Brett Favre when he was with the Green Bay Packers, still doesn’t think much of Favre. In fact, he recently compared Favre to a reality television show. “I’m done following him,” said Randle, who sacked Favre 13.5 times. “That went […]

Even though he worked out with fellow Green Bay Packers offensive linemen earlier this month, right tackle Mark Tauscher isn’t sure he’s going to play in 2011. “You know, I haven’t really figured out what I’m going to do yet,” said Tauscher, who’s playing in Greg Jennings’ golf tournament this weekend.

It’s time for Super Bowl predictions! That’s right. It’s June and we don’t even have a labor deal yet, but the Super Bowl predictions have begun. The Sporting News likes the Green Bay Packers to repeat, beating the New England Patriots in the big one. Championship teams are often broken up by defections among the […]

Seriously, whoever came up with the idea to rank the 10 toughest venues in the NFL must be a brain surgeon. When you consider the venue itself, the team playing it and the fans sitting in it, Lambeau Field is clearly the hands-down winner, which is exactly what the geniuses at ESPN found out this […]

After we wrote about the NFL planning for an eight-game season, someone asked me if I knew how the league would handle the schedule. If the labor dispute costs the NFL any amount of games, the league will have to adjust the schedule in some fashion. The most obvious potential solution is to simply keep […]

I really hate the NFL right now. Hate everything about it. A week after players and owners entered into settlement talks and there was finally a hint of optimism, there’s news the league is preparing for a season as short as eight games. An eight-game season would begin in late November, with a whopping five […]

Donald Driver will one day enter the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, but surprisingly, Driver has his eye on the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. “If I can play two to three more years and put a nice little stamp on it, those records will stand there forever, and when it’s all said and done, maybe one day I can stand up here in Canton, Ohio, saying, ‘I made it,’” Driver said.

Certainly, this is another subjective list, but it’s hard to argue with the Green Bay Packers as the franchise with the best quarterbacks in NFL history. The important thing to note here is quarterbacks is plural, so this isn’t a Johnny Unitas vs. Joe Montana argument. NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek recently took a look at every NFL […]

There have been cryptic reports surfacing this week that NFL owners and players were holding secret meetings in Chicago to resume negotiations on a collective bargaining agreement. In actuality, the league and players were in off-site mediation prompted by U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan. What the hell does that mean for a new labor deal? It […]
