Viable Options For the Packers to Replace Mason Crosby

Mason Crosby

Green Bay Packers’ kicker Mason Crosby had a terrible year in 2009 and the team was reluctant to make a change down the stretch, with good reason. There wasn’t a kicker on the market who was any better. Crosby made a career-worst 75 percent of his field goals. That ranks him 25th in the league […]

Were the Packers Successful in the Last Decade?

Lambeau Leap

There are many ways to measure success in the NFL – regular season wins, division championships, Super Bowl titles, playoff wins, etc. You could look at any number of those things and come away with the conclusion that the Green Bay Packers were successful in the 00s.

Packers Are 12/1 To Win 2011 Super Bowl

Lombardi Trophy

Since this year’s football season and Super Bowl are over, we may as well turn our attention to next season. On Monday, Vegas got in on the act by releasing their opening lines for teams to win Super Bowl XLV. The Green Bay Packers opened at 12/1, giving them the sixth best chance to win […]

The Super Bowl Is About A Lot of Things

Sure, there’s a football game to be played between the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts, today, but the Super Bowl is about a lot of things. Like partying, for instance.

McCarthy Coach of the Year Candidate?

Mike McCarthy

Those are the last words I ever thought I’d write in this space, but it appears, at least in some circles, that Green Bay Packers boss Mike McCarthy is a legitimate candidate for the NFL’s coach of the year. Personally, I’d think the Cincinnati Bengals Marvin Lewis is high on a lot of lists, as […]

Should There Be Penalties For Sitting Starters?

When you buy a ticket do you want to watch this guy play, or Peyton Manning?

Although the Indianapolis Colts are at the center of this discussion after they pulled the plug early against the New York Jets on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers very much factor into the conversation because, as we’ve discussed, Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals could very well be meaningless for the Pack. It brings up […]

Chris Johnson

Enough with the Brett Favre bullshit. I am exhausted and I’m letting it go. Let’s talk about more important things, like next week’s Green Bay Packers’ opponent, the Tennessee Titans, who face the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football.

Peyton Manning crying

Before I get to the mind numbing douchebaggery that is the latest Brett Favre fiasco, let me share a few quick observations and opinions regarding the Green Bay Packers’ 34-14 dismantling of the Indianapolis Colts. Aaron Rodgers continues to impress the NFL world, Packers fans and most importantly, his teammates. Not only has he played […]
