Packers: Class Of The NFL?

Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers are the class of the NFL right now. We know this because the “experts” told us so. That doesn’t mean they’re not beatable, though. The only question right now is when that will happen.

Rodgers Now Getting Compared To Montana

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a pretty nice game, but is it Joe Montana nice? Mike McCarthy seems to think so. Here’s what he had to say.

McCarthy Has Had Enough Of Your Questions About Receivers

Donald Driver

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy went off on a reporter who asked about the production of the team’s receivers. While the media is trying to manufacture a controversy, the Packers don’t seem to be having any of it.

from AdvancedNFLStats.com

The Green Bay Packers used the surprise onside kick successfully against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, the third time in recent history they’ve done so. Coach Mike McCarthy is turning the onside kick into a weapon. Here’s why it’s smart.

Mike McCarthy

The Green Bay Packers are fans of deferring until the second half, which seems to spark quite a bit of debate. The Packers have been successful using this formula. Here’s the argument in favor.

McCarthy Pissed About His Makeup

Mike McCarthy

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy took some time to call out his makeup artist for the NFL Films documentary America’s Game in an interview with Jason Wilde. Classy move, coach!

T.J. Lang: Packers Starting Left Guard

T.J. Lang

T.J. Lang was named the Green Bay Packers starting left guard Monday. Lang beat out rookie first-round pick Derek Sherrod and takes over for the departed Daryn Colledge. The move is typical Mike McCarthy.

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. […]

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 […]

Lockout, Shmockout: Tailgate Tour Goes On

Awkward silence, anyone? The 2011 NFL lockout may be in full swing, but that didn’t stop Green Bay Packers players and brass from spending five days on a bus together this week for the annual Packers Tailgate Tour across Upper Michigan and Wisconsin. According to The Associated Press, coach Mike McCarthy, general manager Ted Thompson and several other staff members saw the bus off Tuesday.

Ranking Coaches: McCarthy Is Fourth

Mike McCarthy

ESPN continued their NFL power ranking series with the coach rankings. So where is this year’s Super Bowl winning coach? The Green Bay Packers’ Mike McCarthy came in fourth. Leading the way was the New England Patriots’ Bill Belichick and his three Super Bowl wins.

Injuries May Ultimately Cost Barnett, Chillar

Nick Barnett

The Green Bay Packers starting inside linebackers in 2011 will be Desmond Bishop and A.J. Hawk.

That leaves Nick Barnett and Brandon Chillar, both of whom are coming off season-ending injuries, in a precarious position.

The Packers have committed $10 million to Hawk, this season and Bishop will make more than $5 million. Barnett has a salary cap number north of $6 million and Chillar makes more than $5 million per season, after signing a four-year extension in 2009.

Bishop Is Packers No. 1 Inside Linebacker, But Hawk Makes More

A.J. Hawk

I bet Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy wishes he kept his mouth shut.

I bet inside linebacker Desmond Bishop wishes he would have waited until after the season to sign a new contract.

A.J. Hawk, on the other hand, has to be happier than a pig in shit

Jordy Nelson: Warrior

Jordy Nelson

There was word Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson suffered an injury during Super Bowl XLV, but the extent of it wasn’t reported.

Nelson suffered a bursa sac injury in his left knee — bursa sacs are filled with fluid and act as a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues in the body (yeah, I looked that up).

McCarthy’s Deal Worth More Than $6 Million Per Season

Mike McCarthy

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy formally signed the contract extension we all knew he was getting, last week.

Initially, the deal was said to be worth $5 million per season, which would have put McCarthy behind Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith as the second-highest paid coach in the NFC North. That number is a little off, apparently.

Goodbye, Atari Bigby

Atari Bigby

Buried at the bottom of an article in which Bob McGinn tries his best to create a not-enough-balls controversy amongst the Green Bay Packers receivers was this nugget: safety Atari Bigby won’t be back.

No, no one’s said those exact words. No, it isn’t a surprise the Packers would choose younger players to replace an oft-injured veteran who’s about to hit free agency.
