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 [...]
The good news is this. Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly is working out. The bad news is, he’s not any smarter than he used to be. Jolly is working out in Houston with former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell. That’s right, arguably the biggest draft bust of all time.
Green Bay Packers linebackers Nick Barnett, Diyral Briggs and Brad Jones and safety Morgan Burnett were spotted at Tao in the Venetian earlier this week. What were they doing? Eating and partying, of course. According to Las Vegas Weekly, the group dined at the restaurant before heading to the skybox overlooking the club.
Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant is coming off a season ended in week one by a broken ankle. He’s also entering the final year of his contract. Grant will make $5.25 million in 2011, if everything goes according to plan. That comes courtesy of a $3.5 million base salary, a $750,000 roster bonus if he plays all 16 games, and a $1 million roster bonus due on the 15th day of the league year, whenever that turns out to be.
Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson went to Kansas State. So did his wife. He’s probably a hero of some sort there, so it makes sense that he did a commercial for Kansas State Cars. Let me tell you, it’s a real tear-jerker. I can’t believe a man who still possesses a pair of balls between his legs would sign off on a script like this.
No one really seems to be happy about the lockout/lawsuit festival the NFL and the players are going through at the moment, and Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy hasn’t done much to inspire confidence it’s going to end anytime soon. “Having been on both sides of this, this is really disappointing,” said Murphy, who [...]
