Brady Poppinga Part Of Packers Pass Rush Solution

This news both brings me great joy and increases my staunch support of Green Bay Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson, who is completely brilliant. You see, the Packers didn’t bother to add a player of note at the left outside linebacker position because they’ve got Brady Poppinga. You know, the guy who has amassed four […]

Should The Packers Be Preparing For Shootouts?

Much has been made of the games the Green Bay Packers lost to the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers, as well as the playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals, last season. The main culprit in those losses was the Packers’ pass coverage, or lack thereof. The Packers could have improved the area in the offseason […]

A Word About Athletes and Women

Tom Brady Giselle Bundchen

Remember when your pro sports heroes were good, wholesome, family-oriented men who threw touchdown passes during the season and posed for photos with their wife, kids and dog on the family ranch in the offseason? Well, those days are gone. Now, your heroes are more like, well… me. And I’ve never set a good example […]

The Season-Ending Facemask

Aaron Rodgers sacked

The Green Bay Packers 51-45 loss to the Arizona Cardinals has taken a bit to digest, but we know three things for sure. First, it was a great game. I don’t think anyone can argue with that. Second, the Packers shit the bed. The league’s second-ranked defense gave up 531 yards of offense to the […]

Cardinals End Packers’ Season In Stunning Shootout

It was a playoff game for the ages, although Packer fans may not look back on it too fondly. Kurt Warner and Aaron Rodgers put on a passing extravaganza, tossing for a combined 801 yards and nine touchdowns in the NFC wild card game Sunday night. But it was Arizona’s defense that came up with […]

How The Packers Beat The Cardinals

Look for a lot of this

Surely, not much can be taken from the Green Bay Packers’ 33-7 drubbing of the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner played only one quarter and threw only six passes and the Cardinals employed a vanilla game plan. But hold the phone for a minute. The Packers not only demonstrated that they can […]

Round One: Packers…Doesn’t Mean Much Though

The Wizard of Green Bay teleported himself down to Glendale, Ariz., for Sundays game.

It’s hard to take too much away from the Green Bay Packers’ 33-7 drumming of the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. It was a dominating performance, but Arizona rested most of its starters and coach Ken Whisenhunt played it safe, not showing much of what he will do when the two teams meet again next week […]

Green Bay Packers: Starting to Look Like the Real Deal

Kurt Warner

The Green Bay Packers hung on for a 44-37 preseason win over the defending NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals last night in Phoenix, but that really doesn’t begin to tell the story. A friend turned to me this morning and asked, “Do you ever remember a preseason when the Packers looked this good?” The answer is […]

Brett Favre – Most Overrated Athlete of All Time

Brett Favre

That’s right, we’re talking about none other than Brett Favre. Actually, we’re not talking about him, the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Mark Bradley is talking about him, and calling him the most overrated athlete ever. In fact, Bradley (who will now forever be known around these parts as a douchebag that knows nothing about sports, and […]

The Super Bowl is Rigged

How else can you explain the end of yesterday’s slugfest between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals? With five seconds left, Pittsburgh got the benefit of a questionable call after linebacker LaMarr Woodley got his hand on the football as Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner was preparing to throw. The ball came loose, Pittsburgh recovered […]

Packers vs. Seahawks Quick Notes

Greg Jennings

I’d be a lot more excited about the Green Bay Packers 27-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks if I didn’t already know that Seattle is truly an awful team. But as they say in Cliche Town, “a win is a win.” THE GOOD Aaron Rodgers is still playing well. On top of that, his shoulder […]
