Minnesota Vikings Fans Are Worst In Pro Sports, Reason #5,081

Minnesota Vikings fan

I’m going to skip all the usual shots we like to take at Minnesota Vikings fans, today. Well, maybe not all of them. In case you haven’t heard, the Vikings want to move out of the shithole known as the Metrodome they currently play in. The team has two competing plans for a new stadium.

Veteran Packers Who Should Be Worried

James Jones

The NFL Draft changes the face of every team’s roster and the Green Bay Packers are no exception, even though they’re the reigning Super Bowl champs. Several veterans will go into training camp to fight for a roster spot, while others will simply be let go during free agency. Here’s a look at which players […]

Packers Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Organized Workout!

A.J. Hawk

Since the lockout has put an end to the organized team activities and minicamps everyone has grown accustomed to this time of year, players from several teams have organized their own workouts. Up to this point, the Green Bay Packers have not been among them and there isn’t any sign that’s about to change. While […]

Aaron Rodgers And Marisa Miller: Let The Speculation Begin

Aaron Rodgers and Marisa Miller

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took in the Kentucky Derby over the weekend, where he was spotted with none other than Victoria’s Secret model Marisa Miller. Does that mean they’re together? No. Does that mean people will make all kinds of assumptions?

What Pre-Draft Visits Mean For Packers

Brooks Reed

By the look of it, pre-draft visits mean absolutely nothing for the Green Bay Packers. The Packers brought around 20 players in for pre-draft visits, although that number could be more, since the team isn’t required to report them. They also worked out a few players at other sites. In all, each organization is allowed […]

Favre Plans To Coach Or Do TV

Brett Favre

Now that Brett Favre is supposedly retired for good, he needs something to do besides collect evil glares from Deanna and text lewd messages to the tart he met at the local Big Star. That something, at least according to the Lord Brett Favre himself, is coaching or television work. Favre was interviewed by Hattiesburg’s (Miss.) NBC affiliate at his football camp on Thursday, telling the station he’s starting a new career.

Some Teams Contacting Undrafted Free Agents

Ted Thompson

Since the NFL lockout went back into effect during the league’s three-day draft, teams have been prevented from signing undrafted free agents, as usual. Apparently, that hasn’t stopped some teams from contacting these players and their agents anyway. Not only is it another sign that the owners are the only ones who believe in the […]

Now You Can Laugh At Minnesota Vikings Disastrous 2010 Season All Over Again

Brad Childress and Brett Favre

There’s not much we enjoy more around these parts than making fun of that joke of an organization known as the Minnesota Vikings. Their debacle of a 2010 season was fitting for so many reasons and frankly, it couldn’t have happened to a greater group of people. Thanks to Fly Over Entertainment, we’ll soon be able to relive the Vikings’ 2010 season in all its glory.

Jenkins Would Have Taken Less To Stay In Green Bay

Cullen Jenkins

It’s now a foregone conclusion defensive end Cullen Jenkins, who will be a free agent when the lockout ends, has played his last game for the Green Bay Packers. General manager Ted Thompson made no effort to sign Jenkins to a contract extension, even when Jenkins’ agent approached the team before the start of the 2010 season. On Wednesday, Jenkins, who had a career-high seven sacks in 2010, revealed he would have taken less money to remain in Green Bay.

‘Lombardi’ Gets Retired

Although there’s been a buzz in NFL circles, the Broadway play about former Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi, appropriately titled “Lombardi,” will end its run prematurely. It will close on May 22 after 274 performances. The play was originally scheduled to finish its run June 19.

Will Packers Put Cobb In Wildcat?

Randall Cobb

The Green Bay Packers drafted a versatile weapon when they picked Kentucky’s Randall Cobb in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. We discussed this potential in Cobb’s post-draft breakdown. What we didn’t consider at the time is the possibility of the Packers putting Cobb in the wildcat. Certainly, the wildcat is a gadget play and the Packers aren’t known for running such plays.

Ryan Pickett: Your Ultra-Conservative Guide

Ryan Pickett

I always find it odd when I see someone who isn’t old, rich and white latch onto conservative political causes. Of course, there’s a certain theory that sums things up nicely — you’re only a Democrat until you start making a lot of money, unless you live in California. Unfortunately, that’s not the case here […]

Nick Collins Third In Safety Rankings

Nick Collins

Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins came in third in ESPN’s safety Power Rankings. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ Troy Polamalu and Baltimore Ravens’ Ed Reed were unanimous selections for first and second — Polamalu got all the first-place votes and Reed got all the second-place votes. Collins finished 12 points ahead of fourth-place finisher Adrian Wilson of the Arizona Cardinals.

Jerry Angelo Makes Chicago Bears A Joke On Draft Day Again

Jerry Angelo

It’s taken me a while to get to this, but now it’s time to lay into the joke in the NFC North not named the Minnesota Vikings — the Chicago Bears. Actually, it’s not the Bears whole organization that’s a joke, it’s general manager Jerry Angelo, which should come as a surprise to no one. If you watched the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, you saw Angelo’s ineptitude in action, although you probably couldn’t tell what was really going on.

Vikings Want Ponder To Start Day One

Christian Ponder

It case you couldn’t hear the groans coming from the west, the Minnesota Vikings selected Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Some might say the pick was a reach, and I’d be one of those people, but the Vikings were desperate for a young quarterback and quarterbacks were quickly disappearing at that point in the draft. Gone were Cam Newton (No. 1), Jake Locker (No. 8) and Blaine Gabbert (No. 10).

A Quick Look At The Packers’ Seventh-Round Picks

Lawrence Guy

It’s true. We took the seventh round of the NFL Draft off. Just couldn’t take it anymore. The Green Bay Packers didn’t, however. So, even though it’s overdue, here’s a quick look at the Packers seventh-round picks in the 2011 NFL Draft, of which there were two. With pick No. 218, the Packers selected North […]

D.J. Williams Has Come A Long Way

The Green Bay Packers selected Arkansas tight end D.J. Williams in the fifth round of the NFL Draft, which is the culmination of one hell of a journey for 22-year-old. Williams’ father grappled with bi-polar disorder and alcohol and drug problems. Williams contemplated suicide when he was young. Take a look at ESPN’s profile on […]

Packers Add Guard, Linebacker, Defensive End In Sixth

Caleb Schlauderaff

The Green Bay Packers traded their final fifth round selection to the San Francisco 49ers and landed pick No. 174 in the sixth round and a seventh-round pick (No. 231). Ted Thompson then turned around and traded that pick to the Miami Dolphins, along with the the seventh he just acquired, for the No. 179 […]

The Book On Packers Fifth-Round Pick D.J. Williams

D.J. Williams

With their first pick in the fifth round, the Green Bay Packers selected tight end D.J. Williams from Arkansas. Before you fly into a tizzy, the Packers were looking to add a tight end for two reasons. First, they don’t know what they have in Andrew Quarless, who they drafted in the fifth round last year. Second, Jermichael Finley is going to demand a lot of money in the near future and it’s possible the Packers won’t pay him.

The Book on Packers Fourth-Round Pick Davon House

Davon House

The Green Bay Packers selected cornerback Davon House from New Mexico State with their fourth-round pick (No. 131). Here’s the scouting report on House (6-2, 200) from NFL.com. House is a physical corner that excels in press coverage, and could develop into a starter in a Cover-2 scheme. He uses his big strong hands to […]
