Yeah, the Atlanta Falcons and their nondescript, no-personality, never-won-a-playoff-game quarterback are a decent team. They still looked like a naked, drunken whore when the Green Bay Packers showed up and bent them over the kitchen table in the playoffs, though. After the Packers were done pounding away, the Falcons were sent home with a sore ass and the numbers 48-21 tattooed on their brains. So what do the Falcons do when the NFL Draft rolls around?
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will not be on the next Madden cover. Rodgers lost in his matchup with Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hills. He lost 59 to 41 percent. Apparently, some Packers fans voted for Hillis because they were afraid of the Madden curse, even though Rodgers said last week he didn’t [...]
I more or less thought it was a foregone conclusion that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers would be on the cover of the new Madden game. If you recall, EA Sports and ESPN are running a tournament where people can vote for the player featured on the cover. It’s currently down to four players [...]
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 [...]
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.
Perhaps lost in the hype surrounding the Green Bay Packers’ matchup with the Chicago Bears for the NFC Championship is this important nugget — Packers defensive coordinator isn’t going anywhere. There was talk towards the end of the season Capers should be and could be considered for an NFL head coaching job because of the [...]
We don’t put a lot of stock in preseason football, but it’s clear after the Green Bay Packers 27-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Saturday night the Packers defense needs to address some issues. By the time the starters departed in the second quarter, the Browns had a 21-14 lead. The game seems eerily [...]
One thing we haven’t discussed in relation to this week’s NFL Draft is the possibility of the Green Bay Packers trading up. The reason we haven’t discussed it is because Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson has only traded up twice in his five years on the job. He did, of course, move up last year [...]
The Green Bay Packers’ 2010 preseason schedule has been released and it is highlighted by a nationally televised contest with the defending AFC Champion Indianapolis Colts. Specific dates and times have not been announced, with the exception of the Colts’ game, but the Packers’ preseason schedule shapes up as follows. Aug. 12-16 – Cleveland Browns [...]
It’s hard to believe there will be much competition for a 32-year-old right tackle on the free agent market, but then, the free agent market isn’t very strong this year. So, Green Bay Packers right tackle Mark Tauscher, who will become an unrestricted free agent later this week, could have some teams kicking his tires. [...]
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who watched the Green Bay Packers play in 2009 – the team’s special teams were atrocious. That has been confirmed once again in the Dallas Morning News’ annual special teams rankings, where the Packers finished 31st. The rankings are compiled by ranking each team in 22 special [...]
The Green Bay Packers are certainly in the market for tackles this offseason. Both 2009 starters, Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher, are free agents. While the Packers may re-sign them simply because they don’t want to rely on two young and unproven tackles, both are at the end of the road and need to be [...]
I wanted to make an analogy to crap, because that’s what the Cleveland Browns play like, but maybe not for that much longer. After beating the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, the Browns pulled out a win for the second day in a row. Former Green Bay Packers’ and Seattle Seahawks’ coach Mike Holmgren has [...]
The Green Bay Packers and their next opponent, the Pittsburgh Steelers, are two teams going in opposite directions. December and January was supposed to be the toughest portion of the Packers’ schedule, with Chicago, Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Arizona on the docket. All four were playoff teams last season and a visit to Pittsburgh to play [...]
Monty: The Detroit Lions once again demonstrated how bad their defense is in their victory over the Cleveland Browns last week. The Lions allowed Brady Quinn to throw for 304 yards and four touchdowns in that game. Quinn previously had thrown three touchdowns – in his career. In other words, the Green Bay Packers will [...]
The legend of Detroit Lions rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford began yesterday. Stafford threw for five touchdowns and a rookie-record 422 yards, as the Lions rallied for a 38-37 victory over the Cleveland Browns. However, that isn’t quite the whole story. Stafford threw the game-winning touchdown pass with zero seconds on the clock after suffering a [...]
Update: Allen was claimed on waivers by the offensively challenged Cleveland Browns. ———- The Green Bay Packers promoted wide receiver Jake Allen from the practice squad on October 27, after injuries to Jordy Nelson, Brett Swain and Jermichael Finley had decimated their receiving corp. Today, they gave Allen the old heave ho. Allen played briefly [...]
