What Is Packers’ Biggest Need?

The Green Bay Packers have several glaring holes this offseason – offensive line, cornerback and safety among them – but I’ve been wavering as to which is the most troublesome. Offensive tackle is the obvious answer, but the cornerback position is an increasing concern on par with, if not greater than, the tackle position. The […]

Top-Flight Cornerbacks Available, Packers Unlikely To Act

Dunta Robinson

Make no mistake about it, the Green Bay Packers are in the cornerback market. Al Harris is rehabilitating a major knee injury and behind Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams, who ended the season as the starters, the Packers are thin. There has been speculation the Packers might be interested in acquiring San Diego’s Antonio Cromartie, […]

Chargers’ Cromartie To Packers: Only If Price Is Right

Antonio Cromartie

The San Diego Chargers need a running back. LaDanian Tomlinson, who will turn 31 in June, is likely to be released by the team after gaining only 730 yards and averaging 3.3 yards per carry in 2009. His backup, Darren Sproles, will be a restricted free agent. The Chargers could re-sign Sproles, but after paying […]

Two Packers Make NFL All-Decade Team

The NFL announced its 2000s All-Decade Team on Sunday during the Pro Bowl that me and no one else watched, and two Green Bay Packers made the squad. Actually, we should say one member of the Green Bay Packers and one former Packer. They were cornerback Charles Woodson and safety Darren Sharper. After playing eight […]

Woodson Packers’ Lone All Pro

Charles Woodson

In news that should really surprise no one, cornerback Charles Woodson is the Green Bay Packers lone member of the NFL All-Pro team. The All-Pro team is voted on my members of the Associated Press and made up of the top players from both conferences, unlike the Pro Bowl, which separates the squads into AFC […]

Woodson Picks Up Another Award And Rex Ryan Is a Douchebag

Charles Woodson

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year on Tuesday by a wide margin. On Wednesday, he picked up the Sporting News’ NFL defensive player of the year award, which is voted on by 636 players, coaches and executives. Woodson again finished first by a wide margin, receiving 241 […]

Woodson Wins Defensive Player of the Year By a Landslide

Charles Woodson

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson put the question to rest today. He’s the NFL Defensive Player of the Year and he won by a wide margin over New York Jets’ cornerback Darrelle Revis. Woodson received 28 votes to Revis’ 14. The Denver Broncos’ Elvis Dumervil and the New Orleans Saints’ Darren Sharper tied for […]

Packers Have Some Work To Do In the Middle

Early Doucet

The Green Bay Packers defense was exposed by the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The NFL’s second-ranked unit fell apart against the vaunted Cardinals passing attack, much the same way they did three weeks earlier against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s now pretty clear why these things have happened. The middle of the Packers defense if vulnerable […]

Woodson Wins Defensive Player of the Month Again. Does This Clinch It?

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson was named the NFC’s Defensive Player of the Month for December, the third time he’s won the honor this season. Woodson also won the award in September and November. New Orleans Saints safety Darren Sharper won the award in October. This is the first time anyone has ever won […]

Injuries Could Play Major Factor In Cardinals, Packers Rematch

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

The Arizona Cardinals suffered three key injuries during their 33-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Wide receiver Anquan Boldin, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and defensive end Calais Campbell all left the contest and are in varying degrees of disrepair heading into the teams’ wild card matchup. Boldin, who recorded 84 receptions for 1,024 […]

Round One: Packers…Doesn’t Mean Much Though

The Wizard of Green Bay teleported himself down to Glendale, Ariz., for Sundays game.

It’s hard to take too much away from the Green Bay Packers’ 33-7 drumming of the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. It was a dominating performance, but Arizona rested most of its starters and coach Ken Whisenhunt played it safe, not showing much of what he will do when the two teams meet again next week […]

Has Revis Edged Woodson For Defensive Player of the Year?

Defensive player of the year? I know someone who has something to say about that.

We’ve handed Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Charles Woodson the defensive player of the year award already, but noted that his strongest competition is likely to come from New York Jets’ cornerback Darrelle Revis. Well, after the last two weeks, it appears the race isn’t quite over, and in fact, is probably closer than we imagine. […]

Woodson Didn’t Want to Play in Green Bay

It isn’t the first time I’ve heard it, but it bears mentioning because of the context it comes in – Charles Woodson did not want to play for the Green Bay Packers. That shouldn’t come as much of surprise. I don’t really want to spend any time in Green Bay either, unless it’s for a […]

Fans’ Pro Bowl Selections An Even Bigger Joke Than We Thought

If only the NFL could idiot proof the Pro Bowl voting process. You know, make people prove they’re not complete fucking morons before they’re allowed to vote. Obviously, if there were any such measure in place, it didn’t work this year. We told you which way the voting was going last week, and it turned […]

Jets’ Revis Woodson’s Main Competition For Defensive MVP

This cat is good

Around these parts it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that the Green Bay Packers’ Charles Woodson will be the NFL Defensive Player of the Year. We’ve looked at the competition and crunched the numbers. But we may have overlooked one guy – New York Jets’ cornerback Darrelle Revis. Previously, our discussion centered around the Minnesota […]

Mostly Idiots Voting For the Pro Bowl

Totally Pro Bowl material

I hate to say this, but most fans of professional sports are idiots, which is why I hate the fact that fans have a say in which players play in the respective all-star games. I should put a disclaimer here, because I don’t lump Green Bay Packers’ fans in with most sports fans. Their passion […]

Oh Yeah, Packers Are Playing The Bears This Week

In case you forgot, the Green Bay Packers are playing the Chicago Bears this week. That had kind of slipped my mind because… what’s that old song? Oh yeah, it’s this one. The Bears (5-7) are bad this season for a lot of reasons. Most noted is the fact quarterback Jay Culter leads the league […]

Holy Shit, Charles Woodson

Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Charles Woodson has made play after play this season, many of them game changing and game winning. But today, I submit to you what I believe to be the most impressive play Charles Woodson has made all season. During the fourth quarter of the Baltimore Ravens game, Tramon Williams was flagged […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Ravens

Monty: There are a lot of reasons why the Green Bay Packers are going to beat the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night. There’s one reason why they won’t – I’m going to be at the game. Not counting preseason, the Packers haven’t won a game that I’ve attended since a 2003 victory over the San […]

Woodson Defensive POM, And Why He Should Win Defensive POY

Charles Woodson is looking up at no one in this race.

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month on Thursday, for the month of November. This is Woodson’s second such award this season, the first coming for his play in September. Additionally, Woodson has twice been named the NFC’s defensive player of the week, most recently for his […]
