We talked about it for much of the season — Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams has developed into one of the league’s best cover corners. Now, the hardcore football geek statistics have validated the statement. Williams appears near the top of Football Outsiders cornerback charting stats for 2010.
The Green Bay Packers are one of five teams interested in Hampton defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis, according to Aaron Wilson. There’s a lot to like about Ellis, who’s 6-5, 346. Ellis isn’t the typical small-school prospect who will need time to develop in the NFL. He started his career at South Carolina, before getting dismissed […]
The good news is this. Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly is working out. The bad news is, he’s not any smarter than he used to be. Jolly is working out in Houston with former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell. That’s right, arguably the biggest draft bust of all time.
It seems like we were talking about this at this time last year. Oh yeah, we were. Then-Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was clearly on his way out of Philly and Brett Favre was giving every indication he planned on staying retired, which, in hindsight would have been a tremendous idea. So, why not reunite McNabb with his former offensive coordinator, then-Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress? Obviously, a lot has changed since then.
You know I can never resist the opportunity to gaze upon Jenn Sterger’s breasts, so I was uber excited when I found out she finally sued someone. Unfortunately, it’s not the someone you think. No, the statute of limitations has run out on Sterger’s chance to sue Brett Favre. Instead, she’s decided to sue Phil Reese. If you’re saying to yourself, “Self, that name sounds vaguely familiar,” that’s because it should. Reese was Sterger’s “manager” and the moron prancing around issuing statements and giving interviews on Sterger’s behalf during the Great Brett Favre Cock Text investigation of 2010.
Green Bay Packers linebackers Nick Barnett, Diyral Briggs and Brad Jones and safety Morgan Burnett were spotted at Tao in the Venetian earlier this week. What were they doing? Eating and partying, of course. According to Las Vegas Weekly, the group dined at the restaurant before heading to the skybox overlooking the club.
They were even dumber in Chicago in the 1980s. If you remember the idiots who wrote the song about Chicago Bears return man Devin Hester, and you thought it couldn’t get any worse, you were sadly mistaken. Today, we bring you this gem, which is obviously from the ’80s and features former Bears coach Mike Ditka doing, among other things, tearing up the dance floor, playing foosball by himself and carrying a clipboard around the club.
Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant is coming off a season ended in week one by a broken ankle. He’s also entering the final year of his contract. Grant will make $5.25 million in 2011, if everything goes according to plan. That comes courtesy of a $3.5 million base salary, a $750,000 roster bonus if he plays all 16 games, and a $1 million roster bonus due on the 15th day of the league year, whenever that turns out to be.
Go figure. A member of the Minnesota Vikings is a humorless prick. Alright, maybe that’s taking it a little too far, because Adrian Peterson at least tried to be funny. He just wasn’t. He was kind of dumb, which, now that I think of it, is another trait of people in Minnesota. You knew that […]
Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson went to Kansas State. So did his wife. He’s probably a hero of some sort there, so it makes sense that he did a commercial for Kansas State Cars. Let me tell you, it’s a real tear-jerker. I can’t believe a man who still possesses a pair of balls between his legs would sign off on a script like this.
No one really seems to be happy about the lockout/lawsuit festival the NFL and the players are going through at the moment, and Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy hasn’t done much to inspire confidence it’s going to end anytime soon. “Having been on both sides of this, this is really disappointing,” said Murphy, who […]
If you haven’t seen The Onion’s SportsDome yet, you should be ashamed of yourself. It’s hilarious. For example: Onion SportsDome
The Green Bay Packers are on the clock at ESPN, which is running their NFL Draft preview series in reverse order. Mel Kiper has the Packers taking Arizona outside linebacker Brooks Reed at No. 32. Reed wasn’t phenomenal in college, but he’s risen after a good showing at the combine. In his senior season, Reed […]
The Minnesota Vikings are a bunch of stupid, classless thugs and cornerback Chris Cook, a second-round pick in 2010, is no different. Cook was arrested in Lynchburg, Virginia on Saturday for pulling a gun during a fight. Brilliant! Cook is the second Minnesota Vikings player to get arrested since the season ended, joining defensive end Everson […]
While most NFL teams are making moves to cut costs because of the lockout, the Green Bay Packers look just fine. The Packers have virtually no debt and have been building a franchise preservation fund, which was worth $127.5 million at the end of the last fiscal year, that will keep the organization operating fairly […]
The Green Bay Packers starting inside linebackers in 2011 will be Desmond Bishop and A.J. Hawk.
That leaves Nick Barnett and Brandon Chillar, both of whom are coming off season-ending injuries, in a precarious position.
The Packers have committed $10 million to Hawk, this season and Bishop will make more than $5 million. Barnett has a salary cap number north of $6 million and Chillar makes more than $5 million per season, after signing a four-year extension in 2009.
The NFLPA decertified on Friday, dissolving itself as a union. That means the players can now sue the NFL under antitrust laws. The NFLPA and NFL had spent 17 days with a federal mediator to try to work out a new collective bargaining agreement, but things finally reached an impasse. “After carefully reviewing all the […]
As the hope for a new labor deal dwindles, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith says the potential for an 18-game NFL season, one of the league’s proposals, is off the table. “First of all, the league has never presented a formal proposal for 18 games,” he told SI.com. “But more importantly, it’s something that our players […]
Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Brady Poppinga was supposed to help the team in the pass rush department in 2010.
That never really happened.
Poppinga recorded 14 tackles and one sack in the Packers’ first six games before landing on injured reserve and becoming the forgotten man.
