NFL Could Be Headed To London Full Time

The NFL has been playing one game each season in London for several years now. That isn’t likely to affect the Green Bay Packers under it’s current format because Packers fans and the team would go bat shit if the league proposed moving a home game out of Lambeau Field, particularly to another country. Somewhat […]

NFL RedZone Coming To Lambeau Field

Lambeau Field

There might be a reason for you to hold off on buying another beer between quarters when you’re in Lambeau Field this season. That’s because the NFL RedZone, which broadcasts real time look-ins and highlights from NFL games, will be available in all 32 NFL stadiums this season. Previously, NFL teams could only broadcast NFL […]

NFL Regular Season May Expand

If you like NFL football, then you should start preparing yourself for more of it. Word is, the next round of collective bargaining agreement negotiations will focus on expanding the regular season to 18 games. That’s two more weeks of meaningful Green Bay Packers’ games, two more weeks where we don’t have to pay attention […]

Week 17 Will Feature Only Divisional Games

Roger Goodell

The full NFL schedule will be released later today, but ESPN has already reported one significant development – week 17 will feature only divisional games. As we’ve discussed before, the move will hopefully eliminate some meaningless late-season contests where teams play their B team, something which takes away from both the integrity of the playoffs […]

New Umpire Rule May Have Changed Packers’ Playoff Fate

Bertand Berry Aaron Rodgers

Earlier this month the NFL announced they are moving umpires from the defensive side of the ball to the offensive backfield in 2010. The move was made to protect umpires, but it’s a move Green Bay Packers’ coach Mike McCarthy thinks could have affected the outcome of the Packers playoff game with the Arizona Cardinals, […]

No More Meaningless Late-Season Games?

Vikings Packers

The NFL is considering scheduling divisional matchups in the final two weeks of the season to try to avoid something we’ve railed on before – teams that have clinched playoff berths sitting their starters. Is it a foolproof plan? No, but it’s a step in the right direction. Such a plan is unlikely to eliminate […]

New Overtime Rules In NFL Playoffs

The league owners voted 28-4 to change overtime rules in the NFL playoffs, Tuesday. The new rule states that the team that loses the coin toss will get a possession if the team that wins the coin toss only scores a field goal. If the team that wins the coin toss scores a touchdown, the […]

Just Say No to Guaranteed Contracts

Michael Redd

One interesting item that has repeatedly come up in the past week is the possibility of a new NFL labor deal including guaranteed contracts. Currently, NFL player contracts are not guaranteed. So, if a player isn’t performing up to his expected level, the team can cut him, void his contract and not have to pay […]

Two Packers Make NFL All-Decade Team

The NFL announced its 2000s All-Decade Team on Sunday during the Pro Bowl that me and no one else watched, and two Green Bay Packers made the squad. Actually, we should say one member of the Green Bay Packers and one former Packer. They were cornerback Charles Woodson and safety Darren Sharper. After playing eight […]

Packers’ Victory Shows NFL’s Flaws

Ryan Grant and the Packers have run over, around and through the Cardinals

The Green Bay Packers 33-7 week 17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals put the NFL’s flaws in clear view. The game was meaningless. Everyone knew that after the Minnesota Vikings beat the New York Giants in an early game, which guaranteed the Cardinals could not move up in the playoff seeding. So what did the […]

Why Tommy Thompson Was Never A Legitimate Presidential Candidate

I first caught this over at As Seen In WI. It’s a video of former Wisconsin governor and U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson. Apparently, yesterday was Tommy’s birthday and they ran this video in tribute to him. It’s a video of Thompson at Lambeau Field for something called Return to Titletown […]

Signs Point to Favre Tormenting Packers Another Year

Gonna go huntin!

A report came out of the Twin Cities today that Brett Favre may be planning on sticking around for another year to torment the Green Bay Packers… I mean, to play quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings. Favre is, of course, already signed for $13 million next season, but we all know how the postseason retirement […]

The Allen Barbre Experiment Has Officially Concluded

It looks like the days of Allen Barbre as a starting right tackle for the Green Bay Packers are officially and mercifully over. Barbre was replaced by recently-resigned veteran Mark Tauscher in the lineup last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Unfortunately, Tauscher went down with an injury shortly after halftime of the Bucs game. […]

Free Agency 2009: Their Guys

Albert Haynesworth

Previously, we looked at the Green Bay Packers free agents, the most notable of which is Mark Tauscher. Now it’s time to get down to business, and look at which free agents the Packers can steal from other teams. Free agency begins today at 11 p.m. CST, and according to the Green Bay Press Gazette, […]

Vikings’ Fat-Ass Drug Abusers Will Play Sunday

Pat Williams and Kevin Williams

It’s official. The Minnesota Vikings’ two-tons-of-fun defensive tackles, Kevin Williams and Pat Williams will play this weekend after a federal judge blocked the NFL from suspending the twin tubs of lard. Williams and Williams – not be confused with Johnson & Johnson – tested positive¬†for a banned diuretic in the dietary supplement StarCaps back in […]

Buuuuuuullshit! Hometown Judge Blocks Vikings Suspensions

Pat Williams and Kevin Williams

A Minnesota (really??) judge has blocked the suspensions of the Minnesota Vikings’ tubby defensive linemen Pat Williams and Kevin Williams. No relation. Hennepin County District Judge Gary Larson issued the temporary restraining order at the players’ request, saying he wanted more time to hear arguments in the case. No further hearing date immediately was set. […]
