Nine, according to ESPN. ESPN released their tight end power rankings this week and Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley finished 10th. The Dallas Cowboys’ Jason Witten and the San Diego Chargers’ Antonio Gates were far and away the No. 1 and 2 tight ends in the rankings. While Finley’s ranking isn’t all that […]
Green Bay Packers cornerback/safety Brandon Underwood wasn’t the only one charged in connection with last summer’s post-Clay Matthews golf tournament late-night rendezvous/sexual assault fiasco. The two whores Underwood brought back to his Lake Delton condo that evening, and would later accuse him of assault, were charged with prostitution.
You know you love Lil’ Wayne’s tribute to the Green Bay Packers, “Green and Yellow.” Weezy penned the ditty for his favorite football team during the Packers’ Super Bowl run, remixing Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow.” Well, the Baylor women’s basketball team, whose colors are green and gold, loves the song too and they’ve adopted it […]
There’s speculation Johnny Jolly’s second arrest for codeine possession, which put his NFL career in serious jeopardy, will force the Green Bay Packers to reevaluate re-signing defensive end Cullen Jenkins. Jenkins, who had seven sacks in 11 games in 2010, will be one of the most sought-after defensive free agents whenever free agency begins.
Muscle Milk is running an ad campaign with Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews and Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun. The spots are somewhat creepy, but in a funny way. The host of the “It’s the You, Your Awesome Body and You Show” in these faux-interviews is way out there and Matthews and Braun look appropriately weirded out.
The Green Bay Packers got something for Aaron Kampman after all. The Packers received a fourth-round compensatory pick for losing Kampman in free agency last year. The NFL doles out draft picks for teams who lose more free agents than they sign and everyone knows the Packers don’t sign anyone, so the loss of Kampman, who signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars, landed them a pretty decent draft pick.
Somehow, I think we all knew this wouldn’t end well. Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly, who’s currently serving an indefinite suspension from the NFL and awaiting trial for felony possession of codeine, was arrested early this morning. He was caught with 600 grams of codeine in his vehicle.
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 […]
The Detroit Lions actually looked like an NFL team in 2010, two seasons after going 0-16 and nine years after former team president Matt Millen began his single-handed demolition of the organization. After starting 2-10, the Lions reeled off four consecutive victories to finish 6-10. Now there’s discussion the Lions could be considered for a prime-time slot when the new schedule is announced.
Arizona linebacker Brooks Reed will be the newest member of the Green Bay Packers, if you believe every idiot with a mock draft. It may not be unanimous, but Reed is the player most often associated with the Packers’ No. 32 pick. The team needs a pass-rushing, 3-4 outside linebacker and Reed fits the bill, […]
If the NFL wanted to eliminate what’s potentially one of the most exciting plays in football, they did a good job on Tuesday. The league decided to move kickoffs from the 30 to the 35-yard line. You know what that means? You’re only going to see touchbacks in the NFL, next season. Awesome! I’m probably […]
John Kuhn isn’t doing himself any favors. Over the weekend, the pending free agent said he expects to return to the Green Bay Packers next season. Either Kuhn doesn’t expect they’ll be much of a market for his services or he doesn’t want to play anywhere else, which severely diminishes his chance of signing a big-money contract in free agency.
Horseshit! That’s the first thing that came to mind when I heard this. Green Bay Packers fans are ranked as the fourth-most loyal fans in the NFL in the latest Brand Keys Sports Loyalty Index. In order, New England Patriots fans, Pittsburgh Steelers fans and Indianapolis Colts fans are considered more loyal than Packers fans. New York Jets fans came in fifth.
There are a lot of curses in sports, several of them relate to covers. There’s the curse of the Sports Illustrated cover and the curse of the Madden cover. Actually, I think if you’re on the cover of anything other than GQ or Esquire, you’re probably going to be cursed in some way. That’s because […]
The NFL lockout has a lot of far-reaching consequences, but for the Green Bay Packers, it’s also put a hold on the traditional post-Super Bowl championship activities. The Packers haven’t even ordered their Super Bowl rings because the team wants to consult the players before doing so. During the lockout, team personnel and coaches are […]
We talked about it for much of the season — Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams has developed into one of the league’s best cover corners. Now, the hardcore football geek statistics have validated the statement. Williams appears near the top of Football Outsiders cornerback charting stats for 2010.
The Green Bay Packers are one of five teams interested in Hampton defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis, according to Aaron Wilson. There’s a lot to like about Ellis, who’s 6-5, 346. Ellis isn’t the typical small-school prospect who will need time to develop in the NFL. He started his career at South Carolina, before getting dismissed […]
