Well, well, well. Guess who decided to show up? Green Bay Packers starting safety, Nick Collins. That’s who. Collins has been staying away from Packers’ offseason activities while he pisses and moans about his contract. However, on Wednesday, Collins showed up at OTAs, where his Packers teammates have been for several weeks now. Collins did […]

Anthony Smith in Hunt for Starting Safety Spot?

Anthony Smith Randy Moss

Anthony Smith, whom the Green Bay Packers picked up as a free agent this offseason, may find himself in the hunt for a starting safety spot when training camp opens. Smith has been lining up with the Packers No. 1 defense during OTAs, which means absolutely nothing other than last year’s starters, Atari Bigby and […]

Driver Pissed. Kampman Silent. Tramon Rich. Harrell Healthy?

Gettin

Gettin’ paid, bitch! All of this came out on the first day of the Green Bay Packers’ OTAs, which, for the uninitiated stands for organized team activities. OTAs are basically a way for coaches to get the team together and start practice before the NFL officially allows them to start practice. OTAs are not mandatory, […]

It’s All Part Of The Plan

Ted Thompson creeps out the Green bay media at least week

The NFL’s annual spending orgy that we call free agency has pretty much come and gone. Predictably, a large contingent of Green Bay Packers fans have been lamenting the fact that, yet again, GM Ted Thompson failed to sign a single average player to a multi-million dollar contract. Coming off an utterly disappointing season, the […]

Free Agency 2009: Our Guys

Mark Tauscher

The 2009 free agency signing period begins on February 27 and the Green Bay Packers are in very good shape, at approximately $25 million below the projected $123 million salary cap. Before we reveal our list of free agency demands for 2009, let’s take a look at the Packers own free agents. The most substantial […]

Dom Capers and the 3-4 – A Good Fit?

Dom Capers

After an unprecedented purge of defensive coaching staff, after much hemming and hawing and after much speculation, the Green Bay Packers have settled on former Houston Texans coach Dom Capers as their new defensive coordinator. I’m not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I like the hire. Dom Capers brings the type […]

Tis the Season of Giving

Jarrett Bush showing you while hes still on the team.

And that’s just what the Green Bay Packers did last night – gave those scumbags from Chicago a 20-17 overtime victory. This one turned to shit in the third quarter, when the cursed Jarrett Bush let a Chicago punt bounce off his backside. After that, the Bears gained momentum that never came back to the […]

The Pro Bowl and Packers Hall of Fame

Dorsey Levens

Today, I thought I’d put out some good news, in the midst of all the bad, pissing and moaning, etc. And so… The Pro Bowl First, I will say that I don’t watch the Pro Bowl. It bores me. It’s after the season, when I am about footballed-out (if that’s possible). Frankly, if there isn’t […]

Packers ‘Bearly’ Sneak by Chicago 37-3

Donald Lee is number 1.

Coming off two heartbreakingly close losses in a row, the Green Bay Packers desperately needed a win on Sunday to keep their division championship hopes alive. The Chicago Bears gave the Packers everything they had for the first two minutes or so, but in the end, Green Bay emerged from the hard fought game as […]

Vikings vs. Packers: Who Sucked And Who Didn’t

Nick Barnett has been lost for the season.

Every week the Green Bay Packers are starting to look more and more like a team that simply won’t live up to expectations. Yesterday, the Packers lost yet another close game to an inferior opponent, this time, 28-27 to the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers should be better than this. Maybe it’s time to accept that […]

Packers vs. Colts Notes and Favre vs. Green Bay Becomes ESPN vs. Fox

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 […]

Packers vs. Bucanneers Quick Hits

I’m not ready to jump onto the “Fire Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy” bandwagon just yet, but man, oh man are the Green Bay Packers in trouble. Yesterday’s 30-21 loss was not nearly as close as the final score indicated. Here are some quick observations on what went wrong (a lot) and what went right […]
