Super Bowl

Listen, Broads…

The other day I did a little interview with Betty Confidential, which is a site for broads that talks about things only broads are interested in. The topic — how to pick up a guy at a Super Bowl party. A good topic, I thought. Most seasons, I’m really only going to a Super Bowl […]

Packers Are Now Super Bowl Favorites

Aaron Rodgers and Brandon Jackson

The Green Bay Packers had a pretty good weekend. After throttling the NFC’s No. 1 seed, the Atlanta Falcons, 48-21 with a nearly flawless effort and watching the rest of the playoff field have to work for their victories, the Packers were installed as the favorite to win the Super Bowl. What does that mean? […]

Goodell: No Green Bay Super Bowl

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell didn’t come right out and say it, but he gave a strong indication there will be no Super Bowl coming to Green Bay unless the city undergoes a dramatic growth spurt and/or transformation. “It’s not about weather as much as it is infrastructure,” Goodell said at the Packers annual shareholders meeting. […]

WhatIfSports: Packers Win Super Bowl XLV

We’ve talked about the importance, or lack there of, of preseason predictions. However, WhatIfSports.com is a little bit different and little bit more intriguing. The site uses a computer to generate the results for each NFL game of the season based on player stats. Of course, they’re using 2009 season stats for their projections at […]

Nick Barnett: Super Bowl Or Die

Just about everyone is jumping on the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl bandwagon and the players are no exception. Linebacker Nick Barnett appeared on NFL Network last week and drank some of the Kool Aid. Barnett was asked, “Super Bowl or bust?” His reply: “Super Bowl or die.” Now, I’d post the video here, but […]

The Thing About Preseason Predictions

Is they don’t mean anything. Sure, the Green Bay Packers are the preseason darling of many — the fashionable Super Bowl choice, if you will. What does that get the Packers? High expectations. Granted, there’s no reason this year’s version of the Packers shouldn’t have high expectations entering the season, but it’s July 1. No […]

Packers Intrigued By Super Bowl At Lambeau Field

Lambeau Field

When New York/New Jersey was awarded the 2014 Super Bowl on Tuesday, we suggested it would open the door for the NFL to put the game in other cold-weather cities — cities like Green Bay. Green Bay Packers’ president Mark Murphy said he’s intrigued by the possibility, but cited some of the same potential problems […]

New York Gets 2014 Super Bowl, Paves The Way For Cold-Weather Cities

New Meadowlands

New York, or in reality, New Jersey was awarded the 2014 Super Bowl. The game will be played at the New Meadowlands Stadium, a $1.6 billion facility in East Rutherford, N.J., which is the first non-domed, cold weather venue to host the big game. It took four rounds of votes by NFL owners at the […]

Looking At The Packers As Preseason Favorite

Brad Jones

You hear a lot more about the idea in the national media than you do in the local media, that of the Green Bay Packers as a preseason favorite. Peter King ranked the Packers atop his preseason power rankings. Pro Football Weekly and Yahoo! Sports will declare the Packers their Super Bowl favorite in their […]

Packers Are 12/1 To Win 2011 Super Bowl

Lombardi Trophy

Since this year’s football season and Super Bowl are over, we may as well turn our attention to next season. On Monday, Vegas got in on the act by releasing their opening lines for teams to win Super Bowl XLV. The Green Bay Packers opened at 12/1, giving them the sixth best chance to win […]

Lombardi’s Super Bowl II Pre-Game Speech

It was short and sweet, but Vince Lombardi’s Super Bowl II pre-game speech was to the point and he probably didn’t have to say much to the 1967-68 Green Bay Packers anyway. The team finished 9-4-1 that season and after beating the Dallas Cowboys in the Ice Bowl, would go on to handle the Oakland […]

The Super Bowl Is About A Lot of Things

Sure, there’s a football game to be played between the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts, today, but the Super Bowl is about a lot of things. Like partying, for instance. And no one does it quite like Minnesota Vikings tackle Bryant McKinnie. You know, the guy who got kicked off the Pro Bowl squad […]

The Super Bowl Is Almost Upon Us

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a pretty big football game this Sunday. Yes, the Super Bowl is almost here. As a Green Bay Packers fan, it’s tough to have a rooting interest. The Packers have been out of the tourney for a number of weeks and you can no longer root for whoever is […]

Rejected Super Bowl Ad Featured Hot Packer-on-Viking Action

During the days leading up to the advertising extravaganza that is the Super Bowl, you’ll often get a couple of upstart companies trying to drum up some controversy (and attention) by rolling out a “too hot for the Super Bowl” ad. This year was no different, with an ad for the gay dating site Mancrunch […]

Packers Defensive Line Will Win Super Bowl

The statement alone is preposterous – the Green Bay Packers defensive line will lead the team to a Super Bowl title – but the statistics back it up. We’re talking about the Defensive Hog Index, developed by Cold Hard Football Facts. The Green Bay Packers rank first this season and that’s significant because, since it’s […]

The Super Bowl is Rigged

How else can you explain the end of yesterday’s slugfest between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals? With five seconds left, Pittsburgh got the benefit of a questionable call after linebacker LaMarr Woodley got his hand on the football as Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner was preparing to throw. The ball came loose, Pittsburgh recovered […]

It’s Super Bowl Week!

Mike Holmgren

In tribute to Super Bowl week, which I really haven’t gotten into the spirit of yet, I thought we should pay homage to our last Super Bowl winner – the 1996 Green Bay Packers. These were the days of men – when the Packers third receiver was Andre Rison, their second tight end was Keith […]

Two Words: Tarvaris Jackson

Tarvaris Jackson

It’s the reason the Minnesota Vikings won’t win the Super Bowl, but that didn’t stop Sports Illustrated’s football guru, Dr. Z, from picking them to do just that. I offer you these two nuggets to back up my theory. 1. The Rex Grossman Theory Very few people will debate the Chicago Bears fielded a pretty […]
