20 Questions With Sam Farmer

Sam Farmer

We’re dropping some real football knowledge this morning, courtesy of the Los Angeles Times’ NFL writer, Sam Farmer. Farmer is seriously keyed in and he doesn’t make you want to stab yourself in the eyes when you read his work, like, say, a certain Sports Illustrated writer. In addition to being all over the lockout, […]

Surprise! Lambeau Field Toughest NFL Venue

Lambeau Field

Seriously, whoever came up with the idea to rank the 10 toughest venues in the NFL must be a brain surgeon. When you consider the venue itself, the team playing it and the fans sitting in it, Lambeau Field is clearly the hands-down winner, which is exactly what the geniuses at ESPN found out this […]

Packers Might Have Super Bowl Hangover

Aaron Rodgers

This probably wasn’t the best offseason for a lockout, at least as far as the Green Bay Packers organization is concerned.

Want To Curse Aaron Rodgers? Go Right Ahead!

Aaron Rodgers

There are a lot of curses in sports, several of them relate to covers. There’s the curse of the Sports Illustrated cover and the curse of the Madden cover.

Everyone Upset Packers Didn’t Acquire Lynch, But Would It Matter?

Lost in the malaise surrounding the Green Bay Packers’ injury report last week was this nugget — pretty much everyone in the organization is pissed general manager Ted Thompson failed to acquire running back Marshawn Lynch from the Buffalo Bills.

Marshawn Lynch Will Not Be Joining The Packers

The Seattle Seahawks completed a deal to acquire Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch for a fourth-round pick in 2011 and a conditional pick in 2012, today.

No Need To Panic About Defense Yet

Matt Hasselbeck

For the second week in a row, the Green Bay Packers offense looked unstoppable, while their defense looked suspect — this time in a 27-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

Think You Can Tailgate And Want To Be On TV?

Guy Fieri

I don’t normally post stuff like this, but I thought this was a pretty cool opportunity.
