Finley’s Place Among Best Tight Ends

Jermichael Finley

Not everyone believes Green Bay Packers tight end and pending free agent Jermichael Finley is among the top 10 tight ends in football. We take a look at where Finley stacks up with the league’s best.

How Many Tight Ends Are Better Than Jermichael Finley?

Jermichael Finley

Nine, according to ESPN. ESPN released their tight end power rankings this week and Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley finished 10th. The Dallas Cowboys’ Jason Witten and the San Diego Chargers’ Antonio Gates were far and away the No. 1 and 2 tight ends in the rankings. While Finley’s ranking isn’t all that […]

Clay Matthews Should Have A Field Day On Sunday

Clay Matthews

The San Francisco 49ers clearly intend on throwing any and everyone they have at Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews, on Sunday. Matthews and his league-leading 11.5 sacks will be lined up across from rookie right tackle Anthony Davis. Granted, Davis was a first-round pick this season, but he’s struggled in every game with […]

The Jermichael Finley Explosion or The Demise of Donald Driver

We could call this The Jermichael Finley Explosion or The Demise of Donald Driver. Either way, The Jermichael Finley Explosion is not to be confused with The Rock-afire Explosion, although they are similarly awesome. To anyone who watched the Green Bay Packers down the stretch, it should be no surprise who was catching the most […]

Mostly Idiots Voting For the Pro Bowl

Totally Pro Bowl material

I hate to say this, but most fans of professional sports are idiots, which is why I hate the fact that fans have a say in which players play in the respective all-star games. I should put a disclaimer here, because I don’t lump Green Bay Packers’ fans in with most sports fans. Their passion […]

The Green Bay Packers have won three straight games after an embarrassing loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers almost derailed their season. The Packers sit at 7-4, in prime position for a wild card berth. There are a lot of things to like about the team, right now. But we’re pessimists and therefore, we can’t […]

Capers Defensive Strategy is Curious

This guy shouldnt be covering anyones No. 1 receiver.

Or maybe it’s Dom Capers lack of defensive strategy that’s curious. Either way, the Green Bay Packers defense is a strange beast. One second, they’re dominant. The next… eh, not so much. We are talking about the third-ranked unit in the NFL, but Sunday’s win over the San Francisco 49ers showed just how Jeykl and […]

Offense Dominant, But Win Is Costly For Packers

Aaron Rodgers was the man.

It only took 10 games, but the Green Bay Packers’ offense on Sunday finally looked like it did in the preseason – dominant. Aaron Rodgers threw for 344 yards and two scores while Ryan Grant added 129 yards rushing and a touchdown of his own as the Packers beat the San Francisco 49ers 30-24, improving […]

Predictions: Packers vs. 49ers

Monty: If the Green Bay Packers are going to prove themselves anything other than a mediocre team this season, this is where their run begins. The Packers match up favorably with the 49ers. On offense, San Francisco runs the ball and when they pass, their main weapon is tight end Vernon Davis. The Packers strength […]

Stopping Davis Key For Packers

Im a man, now

We talked earlier about the San Francisco 49ers being a running team and the potential impact of Frank Gore, but the key to the Green Bay Packers’ chances on Sunday is stopping tight end Vernon Davis. Davis had three poor seasons to open his career, but has blossomed into a big time playmaker under 49ers […]
