Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers finished fourth in EPSN’s top NFL players power rankings. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady easily took top honors with six first-place votes and 78 total points. The Indianapolis Colts’ Peyton Manning was second, followed by the New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees.

Hey, we’ve been saying it for some time and Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins agrees: Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler stinks. Actually, Collins didn’t utter the exact words, but he did convey the message. During an appearance on Colin Cowherd’s radio show Tuesday morning, Cowherd asked Collins’ opinion on who the toughest quarterback in the NFL is to face.

Former Green Bay Packers guard Fuzzy Thurston has some money problems. They’re the stupid kind of money problems, too. Fuzzy thought he could beat the taxman. Fuzzy, not surprisingly, was mistaken. The Fuzz owes $1.7 million in back taxes and he’s apparently been battling the government for 28 years. So, the government seized Thurston’s Super […]

The ESPYs, ESPN’s concocted sports award show, is on par with the Xbiz Awards as far as I’m concerned. Oh, you don’t know what the Xbiz Awards are? Well, they’re the wannabe AVN Awards, which is essentially the Oscars of porn. So I guess that would make the Xbiz Awards the Golden Globes of porn. […]

Seriously, this is the dumbest thing you’ll see all day… wait, no, all week. Probably all month for that matter. The Minnesota Vikings are trying to get a new stadium. For the most part, no one cares including the fans.

I was going to run this earlier, but EPSN didn’t give us embed codes when these were released. Thankfully, they’ve remedied that situation. Here’s Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews’ ESPYs commercial, which also features Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love and host Seth Myers.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was asked several questions about the team’s quarterback situation and struggled to say anything positive about rookie Christian Ponder or default incumbent Joe Webb. Peterson suggests he can’t see Ponder starting when the season opens.

Maintaining focus will be key for the Green Bay Packers entering the 2011 season. The team, which will add several starters who were injured in 2010 to an already talented nucleus, will be facing off-the-charts expectations. With the amount of talent the Packers have, I think it’s fair to say anything less than a repeat […]

We’d expect nothing less from a member of the Minnesota Vikings. Running back Adrian Peterson is ditching his own football camp, which begins tomorrow, claiming he has to film a show for the NFL Network. We’d probably ignore this if the camp wasn’t called the Old Spice Adrian Peterson Football Camp and the NFL Network didn’t say Peterson isn’t filming his spot until July.

Green Bay Packers assistant coaches Winston Moss and Darren Perry were supposedly hot coaching commodities during the offseason. Both coaches were mentioned in conjunction with several defensive coordinator openings, but nothing materialized for either. The Packers were lucky to keep both Moss and Perry in their current positions of assistant head coach and safeties coach, respectively, but both were passed over for promotions when defensive coordinator jobs remained open after the Super Bowl.

A new collective bargaining agreement could be coming soon, which means the godforsaken lockout, court cases and he said/she said bullshit that has been this NFL offseason might finally be over. Commissioner Roger Goodell presented the details of the proposed labor agreement to the owners on Tuesday. Although no vote was taken, the details make […]

Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White thinks his team is going to outscore everyone in 2011 after the team added receiver Julio Jones in the draft. My first reaction: oooooooooh, we’re real scared! The Falcons are not going to outscore the Green Bay Packers, the team that whipped them 48-21 in the playoffs.
There’s been a lot of talk about the Minnesota Vikings moving, specifically to Los Angeles, if the team doesn’t get a new stadium, but that is beginning to look more and more unlikely. The deal the Vikings are trying to craft with the state for a new stadium in suburban Arden Hills is far from done, but it does appear a little closer.

Two of the Minnesota Vikings main offensive weapons, running back Adrian Peterson and receiver Percy Harvin, are lobbying for the team to sign receiver Plaxico Burress, who was released from prison earlier this month. Burress hasn’t played football since 2008 after pleading guilty to gun charges and will be looking for a new home to resume his career when the lockout ends.

Honestly, this has little to do with football, but I laughed my ass off when I saw this photo, which comes to us from graffiti artist Jason Rubacky. Of course, it immediately reminded me of the dumbest guy in the room, Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly, who was twice busted for codeine possession.

Richard Simmons he is not. But he’s pretty close. There’s plenty of clowning in this video of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers working out with his younger brother Jordan, who plays quarterback at Vanderbilt.

Although the Green Bay Packers have given every indication they plan to re-sign kicker Mason Crosby, who will be a free agent when the lockout ends, things don’t always go according to plan. It’s conceivable, although probably not likely, another team will do something to pry Crosby away from the Packers. In that scenario, the team may be forced to turn to a familiar face — former kicker Ryan Longwell.
