Clay Matthews Lays The Smackdown

Yeah, I know smack down is two words, but we’re talking about the WWE version here. That’s right. Professional wrestling. WWE Smackdown. I can’t say I know much about professional wrestling or the WWE these days. I come from a day when professional wrestlers were men — when the Macho Man dropped the elbow from […]

The Favre Barn Is No More

Favre barn

The Favre barn, which sits on Highway 10/45 in Winnebago County, is no more.

The red barn, which featured the message 4 ever in our heart (the heart was broken) as a tribute to former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre, has been redecorated.

It’s now a tribute to Aaron Rodgers.

Zambia Thanks The Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl championship merchandise

You know all that Super Bowl championship gear they make before the game for the losing team?

It all gets shipped to some third-world country.

While the Green Bay Packers were wearing their gear around Cowboys Stadium, the Pittsburgh Steelers were… well, not wearing anything but their uniforms.

Packers Next Big Decision Will Center Around Cullen Jenkins

Cullen Jenkins

The sheen of winning Super Bowl XLV hasn’t quite worn off, but the Green Bay Packers front office is going to have to make some important offseason decisions very soon. The biggest of those may be what to do with defensive end Cullen Jenkins. Jenkins enters the offseason without a contract and the Packers didn’t […]

Cowherd Gives It Up To Rodgers, But Not Before Rodgers Makes Him Squirm

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was on Colin Cowherd’s radio show on Monday. If you’ve listened to Cowherd at all, you know he’s been extremely critical of Rodgers in the past couple years, continually saying Rodgers isn’t an elite quarterback. Cowherd based this opinion on the fact Rodgers had never won a playoff game […]

McCarthy, Thompson Will Get Extensions

Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson

Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy says both general manager Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy will get contract extensions. Their current deals both run through 2012. “We want Ted and Mike to be with the Packers long term, and I’m confident that they will be,” Murphy said. Murphy will handle Thompson’s extension and Thompson […]

Rodgers And Nelson On Sports Illustrated

Sports Illustrated Super Bowl XLV cover

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and receiver Jordy Nelson will grace the cover of the new issue of Sports Illustrated. That’s what happens when you win the Super Bowl.

Aaron Rodgers On Letterman

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was on The Late Show With David Letterman last night. Probably the most amusing aspect of the interview is Rodgers looked a little nervous. He’s constantly fiddling with his hands, his shirt, etc. That, and there are obviously a few vocal Packers fans in the audience. The video is […]

The Empire State Building Goes Green And Gold

Empire State Building

As a salute to your world champion Green Bay Packers, the Empire State Building was lit up in the team’s green and gold Monday night. Over the weekend, the building was lit in the colors of both the Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers, with the north and south sides in green and gold and the east […]

And We’re Back!

Super Bowl XLV

It’s taken a little longer than normal to return to reality. The feeling that the Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl XLV champions is still a bit surreal. Sunday night we celebrated. In my case, a little too long. Yesterday’s hangover was brutal. It was also the best hangover I’ve ever had. Hell, I might […]

Lombardi Trophy Comes Home

Nick Collins

In a fitting end to a season marked by adversity, the Green Bay Packers overcame another spate of injuries to key players and outlasted the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 to win Super Bowl XLV and bring the Lombardi trophy home. It was an amazing game from the start. The Packers dominated the first half, scoring two […]

Walden Looks Like A Long Shot

Erik Walden

Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Erik Walden looks like a long shot to play in Super Bowl XLV. Walden, who suffered a high ankle sprain in the NFC Championship game, did not participate in Saturday’s jog-through practice. “Erik’s going to have to show us something before the game,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “Obviously we’re going […]

Fuck The Black Eyed Peas

Black Eyed Peas

It’s come to my attention the Black Eyed Peas will be performing during the Super Bowl XLV halftime show, which makes me throw up in my mouth a little. If there were ever a bigger group of sellouts, I’m not aware of them and I don’t use that term lightly. You see, I used to […]

McCarthy: Sunday Is Our Night

Mike McCarthy

Confidence instills confidence. Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is supremely confident about this game and I suspect his team is too. After Friday’s practice, McCarthy had this to say. “We’ve had an opportunity to go over every situation twice for our game plan, so we’re ready to go. The one thing you want to […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Steelers

Aaron Rodgers

Steffen: First of all, I just want to say that this is truly a great Super Bowl matchup. Football fans should be thrilled (apologies to Chicago, Minnesota and New Jersey). There isn’t a single bit of analysis I can offer that you haven’t already heard. “Pittsburgh has more experience, blah, blah, blah. Aaron Rodgers is […]

Desmond Howard In The House!

I’m not gonna lie. I love Desmond Howard. He’s one of my favorite players of all time, not just for his lone, full, killer season with the Green Bay Packers, but because I’m also a Michigan Wolverines fan, for reasons I won’t get into right now. In case you don’t remember those heady days at […]

Pouncey Confirmed Out

Maurkice Pouncey

Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey will not play in the Super Bowl, coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Friday. Pouncey injured his ankle in the AFC Championship game and although he’s been in a walking boot most of the week, he insisted he had a 75 percent chance of playing Sunday. He didn’t practice on Friday, which […]

Who Is The Greatest QB In Packers History?

Bart Starr

I read Adam Rank’s article on the best quarterbacks in Green Bay Packers history with some interest. I thought the list would be fairly predictable, with either Brett Favre or Bart Starr ending up at the top. My personal selection is Starr, simply because he won five championships. Favre, of course, only won one, despite […]

Here’s The Gayest Thing You’ll See All Day

Actually, I take that back. Calling this gay is an insult to my homosexual friends. This is something else entirely. It’s lame. It’s loserish. It’s a sign this guy is never getting laid for the rest of his life, unless he runs into a 300-pound hillbilly with five teeth from West Virginia. They like the […]

Remember That Super Bowl Ticket Contest? A Homeless Couple Won

Dallas Super Bowl Ticket Hunt

If you recall, last Friday and Saturday we helped with a Super Bowl ticket giveaway by the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau. The objective of the contest for participants was to find a mystery man roaming the streets of Green Bay. The winner received two tickets to see the Green Bay Packers face the Pittsburgh […]
