Oh no, not again! Mah hair!!

At least now we know who wears the pants in the Minnesota Vikings organization. And it sure isn’t Brad Childress. In a “heated discussion” rivaling any soap opera or made-for-TV movie, quarterback Brett Favre pulled the diva card Sunday night and refused to come out of Minnesota’s game at the Carolina Panthers after Chilly tried […]

Oh, am I supposed to be covering this guy?

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense was suspect Sunday without its injured star safety Troy Polamalu, and the Green Bay Packers took full advantage. The problem was the other side of the ball, where the Packers’ supposedly stout defense was decimated by Ben Roethlisberger and the flailing Steelers’ offense. Roethlisberger was 29-of-46 for a franchise record 503 […]

There’s a case of the Jan Bradys going around the Green Bay Packers’ locker room. Playing the role of Marcia – tight end Jermichael Finley. The Journal Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein raised some eyebrows Friday with his story on what’s becoming known as “the Jermichael Finley question” in blogging circles. Namely, are Packers coaches focusing the […]

The pipe dream in print.

A consulting firm hired by the group that operates the Metrodome unveiled a cheaper plan for a new Vikings’ stadium Thursday. The new pricetag? About $870 million if construction started next year. That’s about $84 million less than the most recent figure of $954 million, primarily because of lower product and labor costs, according to […]

Ray Rice

Add Ravens running back Ray Rice to the growing list of NFL players who don’t want to play in Green Bay. We’re also adding him to our top five list of douchebags in the NFL. Rice, who ran for a blistering 54 yards on 14 carries in Baltimore’s 27-14 loss to the Packers on Monday […]

Packers overcome Ravens to keep playoff hopes alive

Much ado was made about the Baltimore Ravens’ defense before Monday night’s matchup against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Fortunately, it didn’t amount to much. Aaron Rodgers stepped up and, despite throwing two picks, tallied 263 yards and three touchdowns as the Packers beat the Ravens 27-14 Monday night, keeping the team’s hopes […]

CFL what? Top that, chump.

Quarterback Brett Favre gave Green Bay Packers’ fans and Minnesota Vikings’ haters around the world an early Christmas present Sunday night, throwing two picks and playing generally like crap in a 30-17 drubbing by the Arizona Cardinals. According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette’s Tom Pelissero, the latest interceptions give Favre 48 picks and 28 TDs […]

Zygi Wilf

About 50 Minnesota Vikings’ fans and former players continued their push Thursday for a new Vikings’ stadium with a rally outside the state capitol in St. Paul. What the backers lacked in numbers they apparently made up for with enthusiasm. But their latest whines – er, pleas – for state funding couldn’t have come at a […]

This guy torched the Packers last time they met Baltimore.

The Green Bay Packers would probably rather forget the last time they played the Baltimore Ravens. The two teams have only met three times since the franchise was moved from Cleveland to Baltimore in 1996. Green Bay won the first two, but was drubbed 48-3 by the Ravens in the most recent matchup – a […]

Not Two Buck Chuck

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson is having a career season, and is a big reason – if not the No. 1 reason – that the Packers’ defense jumped to the top overall ranking this week after the team’s 34-12 trouncing of the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving. According to the Journal Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein, the […]

Troy Aikman

Since joining Fox Sports as an NFL color commentator in 2001, former Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Troy Aikman has made little attempt to hide his disdain of the Green Bay Packers and, in particular, the team’s former ageless quarterback, Brett Favre. Maybe it’s because Aikman hated doing so many Packers’ games or because his career was ended […]

Next to going to Home Depot, the only cool thing to do in Green Bay.

In the early 1990s, Green Bay was generally viewed as a no man’s land by most NFL players. Cold. Boring. Small market. Cold. Just generally not somewhere you wanted to play. That all changed with the rise of Brett Favre and the signing of Reggie White, who became the first major black player to sign […]

Megatron is likely out for Thursday.

Any chance the Detroit Lions had to mount a challenge against the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving Day flew out the window with Monday’s news that QB Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Calvin Johnson will likely miss the game due to injuries. Stafford separated his left shoulder on the second-to-last play in Detroit’s win over […]

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 […]

Look at all those meatless brats

I nearly choked on my bacon and mayonnaise-laden turkey sandwich today when I read that Lambeau Field ranks as the third most vegetarian-friendly stadium in the NFL, according to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. “The Packers may be named after the area’s meatpacking industry, but that doesn’t mean that fans can’t leap at […]

Grossman in a familiar position

Chalk this one up to embarrassing things my pushy parents say. Except in this case, the “child” is 29-year-old former Chicago Bears quarterback Rex Grossman. And the parent is his dad, Dan, an ophthalmologist from Bloomington, Ind., who came out swinging Monday against his son’s former team. The elder Grossman essentially blamed the Bears’ organization […]
