Hawk essentially said he doesn’t see the point.

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.

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?

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.

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.

The Season Won’t Start Until November And Other Theories

Roger Goodell

Former player and current analyst Cris Collinsworth doesn’t think the NFL season will begin until November. That’s right, November. In theory, that would make for a nine or 10-game regular season, preceded by a week of free agency, two weeks of training camp and one preseason game. Awesome. Collinsworth’s point is an interesting one. He […]

Jennings Uses Fitzgerald For Motivation

Greg Jennings

Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings is one of the best in the game, but he’s getting his motivation from someone who’s a little better — Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Matt Flynn

Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn may eventually end up playing for another team, but he sounds content to stay in Green Bay at the moment.

Al Harris: Super Bowl Champion

Al Harris

Cornerback Al Harris may not have finished his career or the 2010 season with the Green Bay Packers, but Harris will always be a Green Bay Packer in our estimation. The organization apparently agrees. Even though the team cut Harris after he came off the physically unable to perform list, he’ll still get a Super Bowl ring.

Okay, maybe you’re not ranked and maybe you are, but you probably at least know someone who’s ranked in the latest edition of ESPN’s power rankings.

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.

Aaron Rodgers And Marisa Miller: Let The Speculation Begin

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.

In all, each organization is allowed […]

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.
