Suck On That, Colin Cowherd!

Colin Cowherd

I’ve never had an issue with ESPN Radio and television personality Colin Cowherd until recently, but that’s mostly because I stopped listening to anything he had to say several years ago. Back then, I often listened to his morning radio show and I sometimes found him insightful and always felt he called it as he […]

Packers Have Looked Into Atlanta Replay Situation

If you remember the first time the Green Bay Packers played the Atlanta Falcons this season, you’ll remember coach Mike McCarthy not challenging a fourth-and-3 catch by Falcons tight end Tony Gonzales. The replay showed Gonzales didn’t make the catch, but the televisions in the Georgia Dome were delayed at least 15 seconds and the […]

Who Is The Defensive Player Of The Year?

Clay Matthews

There was a point in the season when everyone thought the answer to the question was a foregone conclusion. Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews. Then, a series of injuries and near constant double and triple teams started to slow Matthews. That isn’t to say his presence wasn’t felt. Matthews opens things up for his […]

Check Out These Tools From Atlanta

Iceheads

I can’t say I’m terribly offended by this. I’ve always hated the fact that when I tell someone I’m from Wisconsin, they usually say something like, “Oh, you’re a cheesehead.” No. No I’m not a cheesehead. I never have and I never will wear a foam wedge of cheese on my skull. I’m simply from […]

TiVo Time: Atlanta Falcons

Aaron Rodgers

It’s like t-shirt time, only better, because no one from Jersey is involved. Shawn Neuser takes a look at the Green Bay Packers 20-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. A few key plays make the difference in a tightly contested game against Atlanta. Here’s a closer look. 10:00, 1st quarter — Atlanta’s first drive ends […]

No Challenge Because The Georgia Dome Sucks

Georgia Dome

We were ready to chalk this one of up to another case of Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy being a moron. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case. In the second quarter, the Falcons converted a fourth-and-3 when Matt Ryan passed to tight end Tony Gonzales for six yards. The replay showed that […]

Green Bay Packers: Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda

Michael Turner

The Green Bay Packers lost by three points for the fourth time this season, which actually is the sum total of all of their losses. There’s really no reason to overreact at this point. The Packers lost to a good team on their home field — a home field where the Atlanta Falcons are 18-1 […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Falcons

Roddy White

Shawn: I’ve said all year the Green Bay Packers would win this week’s game, and if anything, I believe even more strongly in that prediction now. The Atlanta Falcons are 8-2, sure. Everyone seems to have forgotten that they beat the Saints after Garrett Hartley missed two easy field goals that would have won the […]

PETA: Lambeau Field Is Third Most Vegetarian-Friendly

PETA has released their annual list of the most vegetarian-friendly stadiums in the NFL and Lambeau Field is ranked third. Lambeau ranked third last season, as well, which we’ve always found strange, considering it’s located dead center in the land of bratwurst, deer hunting, beer swilling and heart attacks. However, Lambeau offers a variety of […]

Ryan Grant Out For The Year

Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant is out for the season and will go on injured reserve after tearing two ligaments in his ankle during the Packers victory over the Philadelphia Eagles — a story first reported by Jay Glazer. The injury will require surgery and Grant is expected to be on crutches for […]

Packers Offense Could Join A Select Few

The Green Bay Packers offense looks like a juggernaut going into the 2010 season. The possibilities of this season got me thinking about some of the greatest individual seasons by teammates in NFL history. The Packers had two 1,000-yard receivers, a 1,000-yard rusher and a 4,000-yard passer in 2009. Those numbers came courtesy of Greg […]

Top 15 Celebrity Green Bay Packers Fans

James Van Der Beek

I noticed earlier this week that Samuel L. Jackson made some sort of rally video for the Atlanta Falcons. I didn’t bother to watch it because, frankly, the Atlanta Falcons suck and so does Samuel L. Jackson. That’s right. I said it. He’s played himself in every damn movie he’s ever been in and the […]

Justin Harrell Will Never Be The Biggest Bust In The 2007 Draft

Justin Harrell

No, that honor will go to No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell, who was dumped by the Oakland Raiders after three seasons and will go down as one of the all-time great busts. Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Just Harrell is in the next group, though. Harrell is one of nine of the 32 players […]

Packers Reportedly Discussing New Contract With Woodson

This comes as a bit of a surprise, but the Green Bay Packers and cornerback Charles Woodson are reportedly discussing a new contract. I say it’s a bit of a surprise because, although Woodson is coming off perhaps his finest season, he’ll be 34 this year and still has three years left on his current […]

Charlie Peprah Back In Green Bay

The Green Bay Packers finally made their big offseason free agent signing by bringing in safety Charlie Peprah, who was with the team from 2006-08 before spending last year with the Atlanta Falcons. Peprah notched one tackle in two games for Atlanta in 2009. He was released by the Packers following training camp, last season. […]

2010 Green Bay Packers’ Schedule Released

Tom Brady

The 2010 Green Bay Packers’ schedule is highlighted by one Monday night game and three Sunday night games. The Packers will face the the Bears in Chicago on Monday, Sept. 27. The Sunday night games are Oct. 24 vs. the Vikings at Lambeau Field, Nov. 7 vs. the Cowboys at Lambeau Field, and Dec. 29 […]

Favre Traded to Packers Because He Was A Drunk

Brett Favre

Then Green Bay Packers general manager Ron Wolf got a steal when he sent the 19th pick to the Atlanta Falcons for quarterback Brett Favre in 1992. Neither the Packers or Falcons knew then what Favre would become, but former Falcons coach Jerry Glanville says he decided to move Favre for one reason – he […]

Day One Free Agency Update

We’re going to update this post throughout the day simply because there already is a lot going on and there will be a lot more in the free for all known as NFL free agency. The most recent news will be at the top. ———- Safety Antrel Rolle was the last big signing of the […]

Remembering the Last Time the Minnesota Vikings Played for the NFC Championship

It was January 17, 1999 when the Minnesota Vikings last played in the NFC Championship game. The Vikings were coming off an almost perfect, record-setting 1998 season and played host to the upstart NFC West champion Atlanta Falcons. Ed. note: Actually, Jeremy is right. I had totally forgotten about the 41-0 massacre at the hands […]

Aaron Rodgers: Player of the Decade

Im the man!

We’re speaking of the next decade, of course – the teens I guess you wold call them. And actually, we’re not speaking in this case at all, the Sporting News is. The Sporting News named their players of the next decade in the four major professional sports, and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was […]
