Packers Get Five ESPY Nominations, No One Cares

Aaron Rodgers

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. […]

Just When You Thought Vikings Fans Couldn’t Get Any Dumber…

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.

Clay Matthews’ ESPYs Commercial

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.

A Trophy Apart

Mike McCarthy

Not so deep in the confines of the Hall of Fame of the most-storied franchise in the NFL, four iconic silver statues named after the same franchise’s most-famous coach stand as a testament to 13 NFL Championships. Most would say that the trophies represent the four greatest of these championships: four Super Bowl victories, champions of a […]

Adrian Peterson Not Fired Up About Vikings’ Quarterbacks

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.

Here’s Darnell Dockett Dissing B.J. Raji

B.J. Raji

Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett is apparently not a fan of Green Bay Packers nose tackle B.J. Raji. He’s also not a fan of the NFL Network’s top 100 players list. Frankly, I don’t blame him for that. The list doesn’t make a lot of sense, but it’s voted on by players, so you […]

Maintaining Focus Key For Packers’ Repeat

Mike McCarthy

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 […]

Packers Free Agents: Who Will Return

Mason Crosby

Now that we know who the Green Bay Packers unrestricted free agents will be, we can tell you who’s likely to be back and who isn’t. For several players, the writing is on the wall — they’ve played their last game with the Packers. Here’s a look at who’s likely coming back and who’s likely […]

Adrian Peterson Football Camp, Now With Less Adrian Peterson!

Adrian Peterson

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.

Assistants Moss, Perry Still Hot In Some Circles

Winston Moss

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.

Lockout Could Be Over Soon: The Details

Roger Goodell

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: Green Bay South?

Roddy White

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.

Vikings Probably Aren’t Going Anywhere

Metrodome

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.

Vikings Chirping For Plaxico Burress

Plaxico Burress

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.

An Ode To Johnny Jolly

Grimace

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.

The Aaron Rodgers Workout Video

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.

Mason Crosby vs. Ryan Longwell

Ryan Longwell

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.

The Making Of Packers’ Super Bowl Rings

The Green Bay Packers’ Super Bowl rings were made by Jostens. Here’s how they were created. (Via CheeseheadTV)

Packers’ Super Bowl Rings [Photos]

The Green Bay Packers received their Super Bowl rings Thursday night during a private ceremony at Lambeau Field. Of course, there are plenty of photos. The stats: the rings are made of platinum, with 18-karat yellow gold, and weigh 116 grams. Diamonds totaling 3.35 carats are featured.

Ring Ceremony Tonight; Not Invited: Josh Bell, You

Josh Bell

The Green Bay Packers will hold their Super Bowl ring deal this evening at Lambeau Field. Here’s who’s invited — everyone but cornerback Josh Bell and you. Fact of the matter is, you probably don’t deserve a Super Bowl ring and neither does Josh Bell. Bell was placed on injured reserve during training camp. The […]
