Lockout, Shmockout: Tailgate Tour Goes On

Awkward silence, anyone? The 2011 NFL lockout may be in full swing, but that didn’t stop Green Bay Packers players and brass from spending five days on a bus together this week for the annual Packers Tailgate Tour across Upper Michigan and Wisconsin.

Packers Talking The Talk Despite Setbacks

Cullen Jenkins

Everyone is a little frustrated the Green Bay Packers can’t quite get over the hump, including the players, but while the Packers could have won every game they played this season, only two teams have gone through an NFL regular season undefeated.

Are The Packers Full Of Themselves?

Do the Green Bay Packers need an ego check? It’s an interesting question and one that bears some discussion after Nick Barnett made his Super Bowl or die proclamation last week.

Packers Lead King’s Power Rankings

Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers lead Peter King’s first 2010 NFL power rankings, which were published in this morning’s Monday Morning Quarterback column. I’m less than excited about this for a couple of reasons. First, I think King is way off base about as much as he’s right about anything. Second, it’s fucking May and training […]

On Friday, the Green Bay Packers announced that they’re raising ticket prices for the 2010 season. That’s right, an additional $8-10 per ticket.

The Season-Ending Facemask

Aaron Rodgers sacked

The Green Bay Packers 51-45 loss to the Arizona Cardinals has taken a bit to digest, but we know three things for sure. First, it was a great game. I don’t think anyone can argue with that. Second, the Packers shit the bed. The league’s second-ranked defense gave up 531 yards of offense to the […]

Boldin Still Questionable; Likely A Game-time Decision

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin is still questionable for Sunday’s wild-game game against the Green Bay Packers with a high ankle sprain and will likely be a game-time decision.

Packers’ Victory Shows NFL’s Flaws

Ryan Grant and the Packers have run over, around and through the Cardinals

The Green Bay Packers 33-7 week 17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals put the NFL’s flaws in clear view. The game was meaningless.
