Tauscher May Retire

Mark Tauscher

Even though he worked out with fellow Green Bay Packers offensive linemen earlier this month, right tackle Mark Tauscher isn’t sure he’s going to play in 2011. “You know, I haven’t really figured out what I’m going to do yet,” said Tauscher, who’s playing in Greg Jennings’ golf tournament this weekend.

Sporting News Already Has Packers Repeating

Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson

It’s time for Super Bowl predictions! That’s right. It’s June and we don’t even have a labor deal yet, but the Super Bowl predictions have begun. The Sporting News likes the Green Bay Packers to repeat, beating the New England Patriots in the big one. Championship teams are often broken up by defections among the […]

Greg Jennings Wants To Become An Actor

Greg Jennings

Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings seems to have a budding acting career. Jennings landed a bit role on the CBS drama Criminal Minds last year, but recently got something more meaty to sink his teeth into — a featured role on USA’s Royal Pains.

The Numbers Game: Why The Idea Of NFL Pensions Are Bogus

Brett Favre

Since at least March we’ve heard a lot about how the average NFL career lasts about 3.6 years because compensation for former players is one of the key sticking points in the negotiation of a new labor deal. It’s one of the most misleading number in sports. The reason is that average includes all the players who are […]

Bruschi: Packers Priorities Not In Order

Tedy Bruschi

We’re not the only ones who think the Green Bay Packers might have a Super Bowl hangover. Former New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi, a three-time Super Bowl champion, called out the team’s leaders after receiver Donald Driver said the players have no plans to hold organized workouts.

Surprise! Lambeau Field Toughest NFL Venue

Lambeau Field

Seriously, whoever came up with the idea to rank the 10 toughest venues in the NFL must be a brain surgeon. When you consider the venue itself, the team playing it and the fans sitting in it, Lambeau Field is clearly the hands-down winner, which is exactly what the geniuses at ESPN found out this […]

NFL Has No Scheduling Plan For Shortened Season

Roger Goodell

After we wrote about the NFL planning for an eight-game season, someone asked me if I knew how the league would handle the schedule. If the labor dispute costs the NFL any amount of games, the league will have to adjust the schedule in some fashion. The most obvious potential solution is to simply keep […]

Jared Allen: (Not Surprisingly) Still A Douche

Jared Allen

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen is just so awesome! He’s awesome and totally cool in a way anyone who isn’t a dumb redneck just wouldn’t understand! In other words, he’s (still) a douchebag. And Minnesota Vikings fans still love him. You know, peanut butter and jelly.

NFL Season Could Be Eight Games

Roger Goodell

I really hate the NFL right now. Hate everything about it. A week after players and owners entered into settlement talks and there was finally a hint of optimism, there’s news the league is preparing for a season as short as eight games. An eight-game season would begin in late November, with a whopping five […]

Driver Aiming For Hall Of Fame

Donald Driver

Donald Driver will one day enter the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, but surprisingly, Driver has his eye on the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. “If I can play two to three more years and put a nice little stamp on it, those records will stand there forever, and when it’s all said and done, maybe one day I can stand up here in Canton, Ohio, saying, ‘I made it,’” Driver said.

Best Quarterbacks In NFL History: Green Bay Packers

Brett Favre

Certainly, this is another subjective list, but it’s hard to argue with the Green Bay Packers as the franchise with the best quarterbacks in NFL history. The important thing to note here is quarterbacks is plural, so this isn’t a Johnny Unitas vs. Joe Montana argument. NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek recently took a look at every NFL […]

Opened Books: Packers Financials, Facts, And What They Mean

Roger Goodell

Throughout the current NFL labor dispute, the supposedly defunct NFLPA has responded to calls from the owners to accept a smaller share of the revenue pie with the rallying cry, “show us your books!” This resonates easily with the public, which sees the logic of demanding the owners prove their claim the current CBA is untenable and that […]

Who Made It To Packers Offensive Line Workouts?

Bryan Bulaga

As we told you last week, the Green Bay Packers offensive linemen worked out together near Nashville for three days this week. Tackle Chad Clifton and center Scott Wells, who organized the get together, live in the area. What we didn’t know until today, is who actually showed up.

Good News Ladies: Clay Matthews Is Still Single

Clay Matthews

So, the askers of stupid questions and purveyors of shit no one cares about at TMZ caught Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews buying some shoes in Beverly Hills on Thursday. What earth-shattering information did we find out from the encounter?

NFL, Players In Settlement Talks: What It Means

DeMaurice Smith

There have been cryptic reports surfacing this week that NFL owners and players were holding secret meetings in Chicago to resume negotiations on a collective bargaining agreement. In actuality, the league and players were in off-site mediation prompted by U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan. What the hell does that mean for a new labor deal? It […]

Fox Sports Ranks Packers No. 1 NFL Organization

Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson

Fox Sports’ Adam Schein compiled his third annual NFL organization rankings and not surprisingly, the Green Bay Packers came out on top, dethroning two-time winner, the New England Patriots. What does this mean? Probably not much, other than the Packers rate highly in several subjective categories. While the categories used to determine the rankings — […]

Bowen: Finley Key To Beating Bears

Jermichael Finley

We all know Green Bay Packers tight Jermichael Finley is an impact player. We also know adding him to an already-potent offense could make the Packers almost unstoppable in 2011, but the National Football Post’s Matt Bowen says Finley is the key to beating the Chicago Bears. The Packers had significant trouble with the Bears last season.

Vikings’ Four Worst Moments Since 1987

Brett Favre

We love tales of Minnesota Vikings woe almost as much as we love the Green Bay Packers, so it’s literally impossible for us not to tell you about Pro Football Talk’s list of the team’s four worst moments since 1987, which is the last time there was a lockout. PFT previously looked at the Packers’ four worst moments. The Vikings’ list of failure and ineptitude is much longer, though.

A.J. Hawk Still Loves Jim Tressel

A.J. Hawk

Former Ohio State and current Green Bay Packers linebacker A.J. took some time to defend his former Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel, who resigned amid allegations of NCAA rules violations on Monday. The Ohio State program has come under fire for providing players with improper benefits, among other things. “Some of the stuff that he was […]

Things That Don’t Happen Often As Important As Those That Do

Larry English

Prior to the 2009 NFL Draft, there were a lot of whispers the Green Bay Packers were interested in outside linebacker Larry English of Northern Illinois. Sports Illustrated’s Don Banks suggested the Packers were considering English with the No. 9 overall selection. Meanwhile, the Press Gazette’s Pete Dougherty spoke at length about English’s potential during […]
