I’m not suggesting Green Bay Packers running back James Starks is going to turn into the Houston Texans Arian Foster next season, but this is a comparison of two opposites.
I chose Foster, the NFL’s leading rusher in 2010, and Smith, who rushed for a record 204 yards in Super Bowl XXII as a member of the Washington Redskins, because they both came out of nowhere, much like Starks.
Someone brought Giovanni Bartocci’s story to my attention last week. It disappeared into the ether until I was digging through my email last night and I laughed to myself, “Oh yeah, that crazy bastard.” Bartocci is a Green Bay Packers fan. He’s also one of those guys. There’s something not quite right about him, but […]
The Green Bay Packers got to control the world for a minute.
At least that was Charles Woodson’s assessment of what it meant to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange, which Woodson, teammates John Kuhn, Ryan Grant and Packers president Mark Murphy did, yesterday.
That’s right, Rex Ryan, coach of the New York Jets, former Total Packers Cunt of the Week, foot aficionado and generally the smartest guys in the room (just ask him!) is saying the Green Bay Packers will not repeat as Super Bowl champions.
Well, he didn’t exactly say that, but he said it by default when he guaranteed a Jets win in Super Bowl XLVI while sitting courtside at a Knicks game over the weekend.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was making the rounds in Vegas over the weekend and he wasn’t shy about it.
Rodgers, who was joined by Packers linebacker Matt Wilhelm, caught Terry Fator’s show at The Mirage, stopped by N9NE Steakhouse in the Palms and then went upstairs to Moon, where he joined Jersey Shore’s Pauly D in the VIP area.
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy will get a three-year contract extension paying him an average of $5 million per year, according to Bob McGinn.
The finishing touches haven’t been put on the deal yet, but that seems like a formality at this point. The Packers announced general manager Ted Thompson’s three-year contract extension last week — a deal he signed in December.
Although both guys say the appropriate things publicly, there isn’t a real relationship between Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the guy he succeeded, Brett Favre, and there may never be.
Rodgers is still at least somewhat bitter over the way Favre treated him when they were teammates and rightfully so.
The Green Bay Packers are near the bottom of the Dallas Morning News’ annual special teams rankings for the third year in a row. They finished 29th, up two spots from last season. The 2008 team finished 26th and special teams coach Mike Stock was forced into retirement after that performance. The rankings are compiled […]
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.
If you’re like me you probably gave two shits about the Grammy Awards and didn’t watch them.
Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was one of the presenters and got to say about two words when he and Glee’s Lea Michele introduced Lady Antebellum’s performance.
Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was making the rounds last week.
In addition to appearing on The Tonight Show and WWE Smackdown, Matthews also stopped by the Ellen Degeneres Show.
Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy said he planned to give both general manager Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy contract extensions, after Super Bowl XLV.
Well, it turns out, he already gave Thompson an extension in December.
Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, a die-hard Minnesota Vikings fan (and therefore, loser), was forced to pass a resolution honoring the Green Bay Packers for winning the Super Bowl.
Klobuchar was in charge of wrapping up the Senate’s outstanding business Friday and had to read the resolution, which passed with unanimous consent.
