The NFL took it’s sweet time, but the league is officially open for offseason business as usual today. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson denied the league’s request for a stay Wednesday. The NFL requested the action after Nelson’s decision to lift the lockout on Monday, a decision the league is appealing. Players around the […]

Well, it took forever, but that’s the price you pay for being Super Bowl champions. With the No. 32 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers selected Mississippi State tackle Derek Sherrod. The Packers actually had multiple options with the pick — there were several pass-rushing outside linebackers available, most notably UCLA’s […]

The Green Bay Packers got lucky in the 2010 NFL Draft. The player they needed, Iowa tackle Bryan Bulaga, landed in their lap at No. 23 when most “experts” expected him to go higher. Bulaga didn’t necessarily slide down draft boards because of questions about his ability, character or health, as some highly-rated prospects do.

Last evening, U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson denied the NFL’s request for a stay, meaning her initial ruling ending the lockout remains in effect. The league had requested a stay while they appeal Nelson’s ruling, arguing that starting the league year and activities like free agency could damage the competitive balance of the NFL. Nelson […]

The only thing that’s certain when Ted Thompson is at the helm of the Green Bay Packers draft is uncertainty. Thompson is rarely predictable, but looking at the statistics, some patterns do emerge. For example, Thompson likes drafting wide receivers. In his six drafts as general manager, Thompson has chosen eight receivers, the most of […]

A lot of people assumed players would start showing up at team facilities Tuesday morning after they were granted a temporary injunction against the NFL and their lockout on Monday. That didn’t play out in Green Bay. Exactly zero Green Bay Packers turned up at team headquarters. From the sound of it, the Packers wouldn’t […]

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is the biggest mouth breather on the face of the planet. He’s also a quitter, but that’s not important here. Reality star Kristen Cavallari, of Laguna Beach “fame,” has no discernible talent and dumbs down every room she’s in. So really, it’s perfect that the pair, who’ve been dating since last fall, got engaged over the weekend.

Predictable? Yes. Correct? Not even close. The New England Patriots’ Tom Brady finished first in ESPN’s quarterback power rankings. While it’s hard to argue with the reigning NFL MVP and a three-time Super Bowl champion taking the top spot, it’s pretty easy to argue with the other two guys who finished ahead of the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers

If there’s one thing we know about Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson, it’s that he loves his fullbacks. Even though the Packers use more four- and five-wide receiver sets than anyone in the NFL, a time the fullback isn’t typically on the field, the Packers have carried three fullbacks on their roster since they drafted Quinn Johnson in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

The NFL’s lockout is over, at least temporarily, after U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson granted the players a preliminary injunction Monday. The ruling is a victory for the players, who claimed the lockout was hurting their careers. The NFL filed an appeal in the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis. The plaintiffs […]

By now, you know the story of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ experience at the NFL Draft. Rodgers was under consideration for the No. 1 overall pick. The San Francisco 49ers ended up choosing Utah quarterback Alex Smith. Jon Gruden and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers passed on Rodgers several picks later.

Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson thinks everyone trying to figure out who the team will choose in the NFL Draft is an idiot. Thompson told Peter King he doesn’t think analysts know what they’re talking about. “There’s a lot of interest in the draft. It’s great. But quite frankly, most of the people […]

Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly will get probation after pleading guilty to his 2008 drug possession charge as part of a plea deal. Jolly was accused of possessing more than 200 grams of codeine, which is used in the popular drink purple drank, a combination of cough syrup, Jolly Ranchers and soda. A […]
