Here’s a look around the NFL after six weeks. Let us know what you think. Making statements San Francisco 49ers We called the Niners surprising last week, but we’ll call them legit this week. Jim Harbaugh’s team went into Detroit and took care of the Lions. They’re 5-1 and their victory in week six proved [...]
After last week’s edition of ESPN’s NFL power rankings, top helmets in the NFL, I half expected this week’s edition to focus on best colors. Of course, they went and pulled something somewhat relevant out — top 10 defensive players. Clay Matthews was the only member of the Green Bay Packers to make the top 10, finishing fifth. Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu was the consensus No. 1.
The Green Bay Packers are one of two teams to cut salaries for assistant coaches, according to Larry Kennan, director of the NFL Coaches Association. The other team is the Baltimore Ravens. While the Packers and Ravens have already acted, assistant coaches around the league will have their salaries slashed anywhere from 20-50 percent because of [...]
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who stood trial for and was acquitted of murder in 2000, thinks crime will rise if the NFL season is lost. It’s entirely possible Lewis stabbed someone to death, so I suppose he would know. “Do this research if we don’t have a season — watch how much evil, which [...]
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 [...]
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.
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.
It’s another installment of ESPN’s NFL power rankings. This time — linebackers. The Green Bay Packers’ Clay Matthews came in fourth in the rankings. The San Francisco 49ers’ Patrick Willis was the runaway leader in the voting. Willis was followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ James Harrison and the Dallas Cowboys’ DeMarcus Ware, who were separated [...]
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 [...]
We’re biased, but we obviously think the best rivalry in the NFL is the Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings. Frankly, I wouldn’t piss on a Vikings fan if he were on fire and I felt that way even before a long-time hero decided he needed to stab an entire fan base in the back. [...]
Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews has been receiving high praise this season after racking up six sacks in the team’s first two games, but none more so than the praise coming from linebackers coach Kevin Greene. Greene, an outside linebacker in his playing days, says Matthews has the tools to be the best [...]
Hey, Green Bay Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson has done nothing to wow us thus far this offseason. The Packers have been silent in free agency. They haven’t made a peep on the trade market. The team’s draft made us scratch our head several times. So, with the Packers seemingly only a player or two [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
