The Long, Slow Downward Spiral Of Brian Brohm’s Career Continues

Brian Brohm

Brian Brohm, former second-round pick of the Green Bay Packers and one of Ted Thompson’s biggest draft busts, is no longer in the NFL. He does have a job though. Here’s a look at the company he’s keeping these days.

Statistical Analysis Of Ted Thompson’s Drafts

Ted Thompson

The only thing that’s certain when Ted Thompson is at the helm of the Green Bay Packers draft is uncertainty. Thompson is rarely predictable, but looking at the statistics, some patterns do emerge. For example, Thompson likes drafting wide receivers. In his six drafts as general manager, Thompson has chosen eight receivers, the most of […]

Where Are They Now? Packers’ Draft Busts: 2000-2010

Brian Brohm

The Green Bay Packers have had their share of draft busts over the years. Some have been epic (Tony Mandarich), while others have snuck out of town almost unnoticed (Terrence Murphy). Well, thankfully we’re here to dredge up your past failures, point our gnarled, crooked, judgmental fingers at you and cackle. For you’ve shamed the […]

Let The Marshawn Lynch Speculation Begin… And End

When the Green Bay Packers lost running back Ryan Grant to an ankle injury, there were more than a few questions and suggestions focused on who the team could trade for. Thus far, the Packers have remained true to form by sticking with backup Brandon Jackson and grabbing some nobody off the Atlanta Falcons practice […]

Graham Harrell Unlikely To Make Final Roster

I was a little disappointed to read Rob Demovsky’s article earlier this week about Green Bay Packers third-string quarterback Graham Harrell. According to Demovsky, Harrell has little chance of making the Packers final roster. The team kept only two quarterbacks on their opening-day roster last season and that appears to be the way they’re leaning […]

The Brian Brohm Era Begins Now!

Word out of Buffalo is that Green Bay Packers’ castoff and former second-round pick Brian Brohm will start at quarterback for the Bills this week. It’s not exactly a let’s-see-what-this-kid-can-do move, but more of a we-don’t-have-any-other-healthy-quarterbacks move. The Bills opening day starter, Trent Edwards, has been lost for the season with an ankle injury and […]

Packers Give Up On Brian Brohm, QB Signs With Buffalo

The Green Bay Packers have officially given up on quarterback Brian Brohm, whom general manager Ted Thompson selected with a second round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. Brohm was signed off the Packers practice squad by the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday, and despite having an open roster slot after releasing receiver Jake Allen earlier […]

Packers Should Work Out Newly-Released Booty

In another brilliant move by Vikings coach Brad “Chilly” Childress, Minnesota released QB John David Booty from its practice squad on Wednesday and signed offensive tackle Clint Oldenburg, a Colorado State alum who played most recently for the Broncos. The move comes as somewhat of a surprise, given that the Vikings had gotten Booty through […]

Packers’ Preseason Finale and What It Meant

The Green Bay Packers went into Nashville last night and largely stunk up the joint, getting drubbed by the Tennessee Titans, 27-13. The No. 1 offense played only one series, and the No. 1 defense did about the same, although linebackers Nick Barnett, Clay Matthews and Jeremy Thompson – all of whom saw their first […]

Packers Looking For Backup Quarterback Help

Luke McCown

This should come as no surprise, particularly in the wake of Brian Brohm’s abysmal preseason performance (his second terrible preseason in a row), but the Green Bay Packers are seriously looking to acquire a backup quarterback. Steve Wyche of NFL.com reports that the Packers could be looking to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, something we suggested […]

Packers vs. Browns Game Notes

Tramon Williams

The Green Bay Packers beat the Cleveland Browns 17-0 Saturday night in the Upper Midwest Shrine Game. While beating the Browns, a team that may be in the running for the NFL’s worst this season, in an exhibition game isn’t anything to get terribly excited about, there were some interesting developments to come out of […]

The Disaster That Awaits – Packers Backup Quarterback

When the Green Bay Packers drafted Brian Brohm in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft, I was excited. Not only did the Packers seem to have a solid future backup and potential trade bait, but they got a guy who was once considered a sure-fire top 10 pick in the second round. I […]

The Packers’ Other Quarterback Debacle

Brian Brohm

If it were any other preseason, there would probably be a lot more discussion about Brian Brohm’s turd of a training camp. Thankfully for him, the spotlight has been fixed squarely on Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre. But in any other year, there is no way a highly-touted second round draft pick like Brohm would […]

Preseason Game 1: Bengals 20, Packers 17

Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers first preseason game is in the books, and although we could care less about preseason scores – especially that of the first game – the Packers lost to the Cincinnati Bengals, 20-17, before what seemed to be a full stadium of drunken Wisconsinites. Beyond the obvious questions, I wonder how many […]

No One Wants Brett

Brett Favre

No one wants Brett Favre. Well, except for the scumbag, tampering Minnesota Vikings and probably Jon Gruden. Brett filed his reinstatement papers today, which will essentially force the beloved Green and Gold’s hand one way or another. Meddler and NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, meanwhile, said he wouldn’t act for 24 hours in hopes that the […]

Thoughts On The Packers Return Game, The CBA And The Draft

Jordy Nelson

And they all tie together… First, the big news out of the NFL was the owners deciding to opt out of the current collective bargaining agreement. This assures an uncapped – and most assuredly insane – 2010 season. The future beyond that is uncertain. There may be a walkout or work stoppage, which no NFL […]
