Clusterfuck Update 7/27: Free Agent Deals And Kolb To Cardinals

Kevin Kolb

Although teams can’t begin signing free agents until Friday, this is the second day they could negotiate with them. Several clubs took advantage and reached agreements with players. The Green Bay Packers jumped into the fray by reaching an agreement with Mason Crosby. Here are today’s developments that could impact the Packers’ quest to repeat […]

ESPN Determines What We Already Knew: Packers Best Sports Franchise

Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews

ESPN The Magazine’s annual Best In Sports issue, which will hit the newsstands on Friday, has determined what we long knew to be true — the Green Bay Packers are the best franchise in sports. That’s right, not the NFL, but all of sports. How did they arrive at the obvious, you ask? The rankings […]

Some Teams Contacting Undrafted Free Agents

Ted Thompson

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 […]

Pot Calls The Kettle Black: Finley Thinks Ochocinco Is A Clown

Jermichael Finley

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley has a lot of time on his hands. He sometimes wastes it on Twitter, like he did Thursday, when he called out Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco for trying out for an MLS team. Ochocinco is trying out for Sporting Kansas City, in what can best be described […]

Carson Palmer Another Option For Vikings

Carson Palmer

Although several analysts have suggested Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb could be the guy who eventually winds up behind center for the Minnesota Vikings, the team has a lot of options. Peter King suggests the Cincinnati Bengals Carson Palmer is one of them. Palmer has said he won’t play for the Bengals again and who could blame him?

James Jones Could Be In Demand In Free Agency

James Jones

Green Bay Packers receiver James Jones is likely to have some suitors once free agency begins, providing the new collective bargaining agreement allows him to become a free agent as expected.

Jones’ name has already been mentioned in Cleveland, where the Browns have one of the worst receiving corps in the league.

Terrell Owens Says Something Smart

That would be a headline in and of itself because, let’s face it, most of the things that come out of Cincinnati Bengals receiver Terrell Owens’ mouth either aren’t too bright or aren’t worth listening to. That alone wouldn’t get Owens a mention on this blog, however. No, Owens would either have to say something […]

Viable Options For the Packers to Replace Mason Crosby

Mason Crosby

Green Bay Packers’ kicker Mason Crosby had a terrible year in 2009 and the team was reluctant to make a change down the stretch, with good reason. There wasn’t a kicker on the market who was any better. Crosby made a career-worst 75 percent of his field goals. That ranks him 25th in the league […]

No Love For Mike McCarthy

Mike McCarthy

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy got no love in the NFL Coach of the Year race, despite some speculation that he might. As we predicted, the Cincinnati Bengals’ Marvin Lewis ran away with the award. McCarthy finished… well, he didn’t get any votes, so he didn’t really finish anywhere. Oddly enough… or perhaps not […]

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 […]

McCarthy Coach of the Year Candidate?

Mike McCarthy

Those are the last words I ever thought I’d write in this space, but it appears, at least in some circles, that Green Bay Packers boss Mike McCarthy is a legitimate candidate for the NFL’s coach of the year. Personally, I’d think the Cincinnati Bengals Marvin Lewis is high on a lot of lists, as […]

How Good Are USC’s Rookie Linebacker Trio?

Theyre all a bunch of longhairs, too.

The Green Bay Packers know first hand how good Clay Matthews is. Matthews has made a major impact on the Packers No. 1 ranked defense this season, culminating in his winning NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his play against the Baltimore Ravens. Matthews tallied six tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in […]

A Tale of Two Teams

When it all came apart

First, there were the two losses to the hated division rival and the former face of the franchise, Brett Lorenzo Favre. Then, there was the demoralizing loss to the only winless team in the league, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Most recently, there was the “come-to-Jesus” offensive meeting during which several players “really had it out” […]

Ochocinco Had Plants!

Ochocinco Lambeau Leap

I’m sure you were thinking what the rest of us were thinking when Cincinnati Bengals’ receiver Chad Ochocinco did the Lambeau Leap on Sunday – what scumbags from Green Bay sold those idiots their tickets? Well, we may never know how the transaction went down, and with good reason. If I were the asshole who […]

Simmer Down Now, Simmer Down

Charles Woodson

Some great words of wisdom tonight from the Press-Gazette’s Mike Vandermause, who tells rabid Green Bay Packers’ fans something I’ve repeated many times already this week: Calm the heck down people! Admittedly, this is quite the turnaround from Vandermause’s Sept. 20 column “No quick fix can solve this mess,” which may have even spurred some […]
