A Tale of Two Teams

When it all came apart

First, there were the two losses to the hated division rival and the former face of the franchise, Brett Lorenzo Favre. Then, there was the demoralizing loss to the only winless team in the league, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Most recently, there was the “come-to-Jesus” offensive meeting during which several players “really had it out” […]

The Few Packers Fans Who Give Us All A Bad Name

Exhibit A

Last Sunday was a bad day to be a fan of the Green Bay Packers. In addition to losing to the then-winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there was some truly questionable judgment exhibited off the field by Packers fans. I’m not talking about verbal abuse, public intoxication or the physical altercations that often result. For better […]

Can Aaron Rodgers Bounce Back for the Packers?

A big question heading into the second half of the Green Bay Packers’ season is second year starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers and whether he can help reverse the team’s fortunes and make the Packers – now in second place in the NFC North at 4-4 – a playoff contender again. Rodgers is having a great […]

Packers’ Offensive Line – Take Six

It’s no newsflash that the Green Bay Packers haven’t been able to protect quarterback Aaron Rodgers this season, even though you’ll be reading some form of the same story in all of Wisconsin’s local papers this week. Possibly the worst part about the Packers infuriating offensive line, or lack there of, is that they will […]

It’s Time For McCarthy To Go

I’ve never been a fan of Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy. Never liked his attitude, his disposition on the sidelines or his play calling. But after coaching the Green Bay Packers to a 13-3 record and an NFC championship berth in 2007, I’ve given him the benefit of the doubt. Many times. The following […]

Packers Season Goes Into Toilet With Loss to Bucs

It’s hard to imagine anyone saw this coming, except for Steffen, who predicted the exact result this morning. The Green Bay Packers have done what was almost unthinkable in losing to the previously-winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 38-28. The story is the same that it’s been the entire season for the Packers – poor offensive line […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Buccaneers

Josh Freeman

Steffen: Last week’s loss against the Minnesota Vikings hurt. Honestly, it hurt as much as any loss I can remember. I’d rank it up there with the Super Bowl loss to the Broncos, 2008’s NFC championship game and the 4th-and-26th game against the Eagles in 2004. Still hurts. What made it worse is that the […]

Packers In For a Field Day Against Buccaneers

Welcome to the NFL, rook!

Now that I think we’ve sufficiently covered the stench of the Green Bay Packers 38-26 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, it’s time to turn our attention to this weekend’s opponent, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Like the Packers pre-Favre opponent, the Cleveland Browns, the Buccaneers are bad. In fact, they’re the only winless team left in […]

Bears Trade for DE Gaines Adams

The Chicago Bears drew first blood against the Green Bay Packers in the trade market Friday, trading for Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Gaines Adams. Adams was the fourth overall selection in the 2007 NFL Draft out of Clemson, but he has been an underachiever for the Bucs. The Bears sent a 2010 second-round pick […]

Packers Are About to Get Healthy

I’m not talking about the injuries that have plagued the Green Bay Packers thus far, although the return of safety Atari Bigby and left tackle Chad Clifton to the staring lineup can only help, I’m talking about the schedule. The Packers are about to go into what is shaping up as the easiest portion of […]

Simms to the Bears?

Chris Simms

The free agency rumor mill has started spinning and while most of the speculation will revolve around guys like Albert Haynesworth and Julius Peppers, an interesting item came out of Chicago today. While he will never be confused with his father, Phil, it appears that the Chicago Bears are interested in quarterback Chris Simms, and […]

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 […]

No One Wants Brett

Brett Favre

No one wants Brett Favre. Well, except for the scumbag, tampering Minnesota Vikings and probably Jon Gruden. Brett filed his reinstatement papers today, which will essentially force the beloved Green and Gold’s hand one way or another. Meddler and NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, meanwhile, said he wouldn’t act for 24 hours in hopes that the […]
