Packers’ Four Worst Moments Since 1987

Brett Favre

Pro Football Talk counted down the four worst moments in Green Bay Packers history since 1987, which was the last season with a work stoppage. Here’s their list. 4. Brett Favre’s return to Lambeau Field as a member of the Minnesota Vikings 3. 4th-and-26 (2003 NFC Divisional loss to Philadelphia) 2. Super Bowl XXXII loss […]

Packers Haven’t Cut Salaries After All

Despite a previous report to the contrary, the Green Bay Packers have not cut their coaches’ salaries. Several clubs around the league have or will cut their assistant coaches salaries from 20-50 percent because of the lockout. The Packers were named as one of two teams that had already done so. The guy who said […]

Matthews Makes Top 10 Defensive Players

Clay Matthews

After last week’s edition of ESPN’s NFL power rankings, top helmets in the NFL, I half expected this week’s edition to focus on best colors. Of course, they went and pulled something somewhat relevant out — top 10 defensive players. Clay Matthews was the only member of the Green Bay Packers to make the top 10, finishing fifth. Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu was the consensus No. 1.

Packers Have Cut Salaries

Dom Capers

The Green Bay Packers are one of two teams to cut salaries for assistant coaches, according to Larry Kennan, director of the NFL Coaches Association. The other team is the Baltimore Ravens. While the Packers and Ravens have already acted, assistant coaches around the league will have their salaries slashed anywhere from 20-50 percent because of […]

Connecting The Dots: Chicago Bears Receivers

Terrell Owens

One of the problems the Chicago Bears have had in the Jay Cutler era, other than a terrible offensive line, is the lack of a top-flight, go-to receiver. It’s one of the reasons they’re the second-best team in the NFC North, despite what last year’s regular-season record and Brian Urlacher’s pea brain say.

Guy Who Probably Killed Someone Says Crime Will Rise If Season Is Lost

Ray Lewis

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who stood trial for and was acquitted of murder in 2000, thinks crime will rise if the NFL season is lost. It’s entirely possible Lewis stabbed someone to death, so I suppose he would know. “Do this research if we don’t have a season — watch how much evil, which […]

And Now We’re Saving Chicago Bears Fans’ Lives

donor

Why are Green Bay Packers fans the best in the NFL? Because of shit like this. Suffering from Hepatitis C, the 55-year-old Chicago resident would have died had he not received a liver transplant at the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison on March 14, 2010. [Peter] Cashman later discovered that the donor was Amy […]

Ray Edwards: Boxing Better Than Playing For Vikings

Ray Edwards

In yet another showing of just how much the Minnesota Vikings suck, defensive end Ray Edwards told the media this week he’d rather be a boxer than play for the team next season. Edwards made his professional boxing debut Friday night and thinks he has a better future in the ring than on the field. Really, we’re talking about the Minnesota Vikings here, so who could blame him.

Most Affected By Lockout: Minnesota Vikings

Christian Ponder

There isn’t much good news to come out of this blight of an offseason, also known as the 2011 NFL lockout, but if there’s a silver lining, it’s this: the Minnesota Vikings are likely to be most affected by it. And when we say affected, we mean negatively. The labor dispute will likely drag into late June, if not July.

Jermichael Finley Has A Lot Of Reasons To Be Motivated

Jermichael Finley

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is motivated by: A. Another Packers Super Bowl run B. The fact the Packers keep adding tight ends to the roster C. Money D. All of the above I think we all know the answer to the question is D.

Vikings Coach Accused Of Sexual Assault, Facing Restraining Order

Karl Dunbar

Even the coaching staff is getting in on the long-standing Minnesota Vikings tradition or being a completely idiotic douchebag. Defensive line coach Karl Dunbar may soon join the ranks of all-time shitbags like Randy Moss (hitting a police officer), Daunte Culpepper (The Loooooove Boat), Bryant McKinnie (aggravated battery, The Loooooove Boat), Onterrio Smith (The Whizzinator) and Everson Griffen (arrested twice in the same weekend, Tasered).

Hole On Packers Defensive Line – It’s All Relative

Mike Neal

A lot of people seem to think the Green Bay Packers have a hole to fill on their defensive line, with defensive end Cullen Jenkins expected to depart in free agency and Johnny Jolly making stupid decisions somewhere in Houston. Football Outsiders named defensive line as the team’s biggest post-draft hole and several experts suggested it was the Packers’ biggest need going into the draft.

Meet Your Green Bay Chill!

We’ll be honest. We thought it would be a cold day in hell or a warm day in Green Bay, before the newest Lingerie Football League franchise, the Green Bay Chill, trotted out anything interesting. I mean, Wisconsin isn’t exactly known for its ample supply of beautiful women (those who read this blog regularly being […]

Jay Cutler: A Joke Even To Politicians

Jay Cutler

We figure most politicians are humorless pricks, but apparently even they get the Jay Cutler joke. That is, that Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is a joke. It started on Monday when Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, a Republican from Janesville, opened his speech at the Economic Forum in Chicago with these words.

Rodgers: Team Workouts Will Be Difficult

Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers isn’t so sure he and his teammates are going to be getting together for team workouts anytime soon. While several teams around the NFL have pulled together some sort of team-oriented workouts, the Packers haven’t and don’t seem in any hurry to do so. In fact, linebacker A.J. Hawk essentially said he doesn’t see the point.

Woodson Has No Plans To Retire

Charles Woodson

Charles Woodson will turn 35 in October and is entering his 14th NFL season, but the veteran Green Bay Packers cornerback doesn’t seem to have any designs on retiring anytime soon. When asked how long he planned on playing, Woodson left his future in the Packers hands.

NFL Will Pay For Part Of Vikings Stadium

Metrodome

NFL commissioner Rodger Goodell has agreed to contribute money to the construction of a new Minnesota Vikings stadium after meeting with Gov. Mark Dayton, Tuesday. The amount the league will pitch in hasn’t been disclosed, but it should help ensure the Vikings will both get a new stadium and stay in the Minneapolis area.

Urlacher: Bears Are Best In NFC

Brian Urlacher

We knew Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher was a meathead, but he might be dumber than we thought. He clearly doesn’t understand how the NFL playoffs work. Otherwise, how could he say something this stupid?

Lockout Will Remain In Place Until June

Roger Goodell

The news just keeps getting better. The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling on Monday granting the NFL a stay, allowing the lockout to remain in place until a decision by the court on the Brady v. NFL antitrust lawsuit is rendered. The case will be heard June 3 and a decision isn’t expected […]

Vikings Stadium Plans Down The Tube?

It was destined to fail, and it looks like opponents of the latest Vikings stadium proposal have found a way to fuck things up again. A new group, NoVikingsTax.com, says it’s discovered a loophole that would let voters decide whether a new stadium should be built with public money — no matter what the Legislature or Ramsey County do.
