A Final Favre Farewell

Posted October 29, 2010 | 13:46:53 (EST)

I've put off commenting on last weekend's victory over the Vikings because I wanted to revel in all its glory for a few days, before saying what I'm about to say.

Of course the victory was sweet. The Packers not only went up in the rankings (we're now tied with...

An Open-Ended Letter to Mike McCarthy

Posted October 11, 2010 | 18:21:22 (EST)

Dear Mike McCarthy,

Let me start by defining the term discipline for you. Discipline, as defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, is "training that corrects, molds, or perfects the mental faculties or moral character." It's also considered "a system of rules governing conduct or activity."

I just want to...

Bring on the Bills in Green Bay

Posted September 17, 2010 | 14:17:12 (EST)

This week the Packers take on the 0-1 Buffalo Bills at home. It will be interesting to see how the Packers offense adjusts with the notable absence of running back Ryan Grant.

Following the stellar repeat performance of Ben Roethlisberger (and his six-game suspension) in the moron awards, this week's award goes to Green Bay Packers second-year cornerback Brandon Underwood.

Police are investigating Underwood in connection with an alleged sexual assault of two women Saturday morning at a condo in Lake...

My Baby Bulaga

Posted April 25, 2010 | 19:51:36 (EST)


It's no secret that the offensive line of the Green Bay Packers struggled last season. For a while it appeared as though Aaron Rodgers was making a run at the title for most sacks in one season. Though the tide changed direction subtly last season, our offensive line...

Knock on Woodson: Green Bay's Cornerback Named Defensive Player of the Year

Posted January 13, 2010 | 12:31:54 (EST)

It's no secret that Charles Woodson did not want to play for the Green Bay Packers. Let's be honest, Green Bay doesn't exactly have the best reputation for young superstar athletes looking to make the most of their fame. It's a small town, it's cold, and it most certainly takes...

Pack Ready to Attack Cardinals... Again

Posted January 5, 2010 | 18:20:46 (EST)

Who would have thought in Week Nine that we'd be watching the Green Bay Packers take the field in a playoff game mere months later? Most Packers fans hopes for the season were in serious doubt after a bad loss to the previously winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The team that...

The Little Cheeseheads That Could

Posted December 17, 2009 | 15:44:09 (EST)

I think we can. I think we can. I think we can. That's the attitude that Packers players and fans alike should possess going into this Sunday's match up against the 6-7 Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Though the 9-4 Green Bay Packers are on a five...

Green Bay fans, it looks like there's hope after all. With this week's 30-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers, the Pack is back in the thick of the playoff race. Albeit, we're gunning for a Wild Card spot, since it appears as though Judas Favre and the Minnesota Vikings...

Rodgers And Smith Face Off Four Years After Their First NFL Pick

Posted November 20, 2009 | 21:33:38 (EST)

Mike McCarthy was part of the choice on April 23, 2005, and surprisingly, that choice wasn't in favor of Aaron Rodgers.

During the 2005 draft, Rodgers was projected to be the first overall pick, and the San Francisco 49ers were on track to snatch up the successful quarterback. McCarthy,...

The Pack is Back... At Least On Defense

Posted November 19, 2009 | 12:01:22 (EST)

The Packers' 17-7 victory over the NFC-East-leading Dallas Cowboys couldn't have come at a better time. After heartbreaking (Vikings) and pathetic (Buccaneers) losses, the Pack needed to make a big move to save their season. With a win over the Cowboys, the Packers' record returns to a winning one (5-4),...
