Packers Get Five ESPY Nominations, No One Cares

Aaron Rodgers

The ESPYs, ESPN’s concocted sports award show, is on par with the Xbiz Awards as far as I’m concerned. Oh, you don’t know what the Xbiz Awards are? Well, they’re the wannabe AVN Awards, which is essentially the Oscars of porn. So I guess that would make the Xbiz Awards the Golden Globes of porn. […]

Clay Matthews’ ESPYs Commercial

I was going to run this earlier, but EPSN didn’t give us embed codes when these were released. Thankfully, they’ve remedied that situation. Here’s Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews’ ESPYs commercial, which also features Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love and host Seth Myers.

A Trophy Apart

Mike McCarthy

Not so deep in the confines of the Hall of Fame of the most-storied franchise in the NFL, four iconic silver statues named after the same franchise’s most-famous coach stand as a testament to 13 NFL Championships. Most would say that the trophies represent the four greatest of these championships: four Super Bowl victories, champions of a […]

Here’s Darnell Dockett Dissing B.J. Raji

B.J. Raji

Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett is apparently not a fan of Green Bay Packers nose tackle B.J. Raji. He’s also not a fan of the NFL Network’s top 100 players list. Frankly, I don’t blame him for that. The list doesn’t make a lot of sense, but it’s voted on by players, so you […]

Maintaining Focus Key For Packers’ Repeat

Mike McCarthy

Maintaining focus will be key for the Green Bay Packers entering the 2011 season. The team, which will add several starters who were injured in 2010 to an already talented nucleus, will be facing off-the-charts expectations. With the amount of talent the Packers have, I think it’s fair to say anything less than a repeat […]

Packers Free Agents: Who Will Return

Mason Crosby

Now that we know who the Green Bay Packers unrestricted free agents will be, we can tell you who’s likely to be back and who isn’t. For several players, the writing is on the wall — they’ve played their last game with the Packers. Here’s a look at who’s likely coming back and who’s likely […]

Assistants Moss, Perry Still Hot In Some Circles

Winston Moss

Green Bay Packers assistant coaches Winston Moss and Darren Perry were supposedly hot coaching commodities during the offseason. Both coaches were mentioned in conjunction with several defensive coordinator openings, but nothing materialized for either. The Packers were lucky to keep both Moss and Perry in their current positions of assistant head coach and safeties coach, respectively, but both were passed over for promotions when defensive coordinator jobs remained open after the Super Bowl.

Lockout Could Be Over Soon: The Details

Roger Goodell

A new collective bargaining agreement could be coming soon, which means the godforsaken lockout, court cases and he said/she said bullshit that has been this NFL offseason might finally be over. Commissioner Roger Goodell presented the details of the proposed labor agreement to the owners on Tuesday. Although no vote was taken, the details make […]

Atlanta Falcons: Green Bay South?

Roddy White

Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White thinks his team is going to outscore everyone in 2011 after the team added receiver Julio Jones in the draft. My first reaction: oooooooooh, we’re real scared! The Falcons are not going to outscore the Green Bay Packers, the team that whipped them 48-21 in the playoffs.

An Ode To Johnny Jolly

Grimace

Honestly, this has little to do with football, but I laughed my ass off when I saw this photo, which comes to us from graffiti artist Jason Rubacky. Of course, it immediately reminded me of the dumbest guy in the room, Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly, who was twice busted for codeine possession.

The Aaron Rodgers Workout Video

Richard Simmons he is not. But he’s pretty close. There’s plenty of clowning in this video of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers working out with his younger brother Jordan, who plays quarterback at Vanderbilt.

Mason Crosby vs. Ryan Longwell

Ryan Longwell

Although the Green Bay Packers have given every indication they plan to re-sign kicker Mason Crosby, who will be a free agent when the lockout ends, things don’t always go according to plan. It’s conceivable, although probably not likely, another team will do something to pry Crosby away from the Packers. In that scenario, the team may be forced to turn to a familiar face — former kicker Ryan Longwell.

The Making Of Packers’ Super Bowl Rings

The Green Bay Packers’ Super Bowl rings were made by Jostens. Here’s how they were created. (Via CheeseheadTV)

Packers’ Super Bowl Rings [Photos]

The Green Bay Packers received their Super Bowl rings Thursday night during a private ceremony at Lambeau Field. Of course, there are plenty of photos. The stats: the rings are made of platinum, with 18-karat yellow gold, and weigh 116 grams. Diamonds totaling 3.35 carats are featured.

Ring Ceremony Tonight; Not Invited: Josh Bell, You

Josh Bell

The Green Bay Packers will hold their Super Bowl ring deal this evening at Lambeau Field. Here’s who’s invited — everyone but cornerback Josh Bell and you. Fact of the matter is, you probably don’t deserve a Super Bowl ring and neither does Josh Bell. Bell was placed on injured reserve during training camp. The […]

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 […]

Why Clay Matthews Is A Bad MF’er

We’ve been hemming and hawing about the Green Bay Packers not organizing workouts during the lockout, but we have nothing to worry about when it comes to one player — linebacker Clay Matthews. Last week we got a chance to check out Matthews’ workouts first hand.

Aaron Rodgers: Music Mogul

The Make

Green Bay Packers quarterback [intlink id=”25″ type=”category”]Aaron Rodgers[/intlink] has a new job: music producer. Well, maybe not producer, but Rodgers has started a record label called Suspended Sunrise Recordings. The company’s initial project is with a band called The Make, from Rodgers’ hometown of Chico, Calif. For those of you wondering what the hell the Packers’ […]

20 Questions With Sam Farmer

Sam Farmer

We’re dropping some real football knowledge this morning, courtesy of the Los Angeles Times’ NFL writer, Sam Farmer. Farmer is seriously keyed in and he doesn’t make you want to stab yourself in the eyes when you read his work, like, say, a certain Sports Illustrated writer. In addition to being all over the lockout, […]

John Randle Still Hates Brett Favre

John Randle

Former Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle John Randle, who had a very public rivalry with quarterback Brett Favre when he was with the Green Bay Packers, still doesn’t think much of Favre. In fact, he recently compared Favre to a reality television show. “I’m done following him,” said Randle, who sacked Favre 13.5 times. “That went […]
