Greg Jennings

The Green Bay Packers started slow, at one point trailing 6-0, but after an electrifying second quarter touchdown catch by Greg Jennings, there was no looking back for the Green Bay offense. Aaron Rodgers continued his hot streak and the Packers defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-16. As I pointed out in my prediction, 49ers […]

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall has taken issue with comments made by former Green Bay Packers receiver Sterling Sharpe and NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock. Both analysts called Marshall’s effort into question when reviewing the Dolphins loss to the New York Jets, last week. Not surprisingly, the mercurial Marshall lashed out, targeting Sharpe specifically. […]

Tecmo Bowl Throwback

The much-anticipated Tecmo Bowl Throwback was finally released on PS3 this week and I, like so many recovering Tecmo Bowl addicts, downloaded it as soon as I could. At 9.99 in the Playstation 3 marketplace, this shot of gridiron nostalgia was too cheap to pass up. I hadn’t been following the development of the game […]

Jay Cutler

Our favorite wonky blogger at ESPN, Kevin Siefert, posted the leaked 2010 schedule for the Detroit Lions. Why is this interesting for Green Bay Packers fans? Well, we at least know three game dates for the Packers’ schedule. Sunday, Oct. 3 — LIONS at Green Bay Sunday, Dec. 12 — LIONS at Detroit Sunday, Jan. […]

At Least Packers New Throwback Uniforms Aren’t Blaze Orange

At Friday night’s opening of the Green Bay Packers annual Fan Fest, the team unveiled their highly-anticipated alternate throwback uniforms. They’re totally nuts. And I love them. But I’m easy to please. I like throwbacks – the more interesting and out there the better. The NFL’s fashion police are generally buttoned up, so it’s nice […]

I don’t think anyone can argue the point that Green Bay Packers fans like to drink. And I don’t think anyone can argue with me when I say that The Onion has been cranking out some of the best satire in the country for many years. That’s not to say that alcoholism is a laughing […]

During the days leading up to the advertising extravaganza that is the Super Bowl, you’ll often get a couple of upstart companies trying to drum up some controversy (and attention) by rolling out a “too hot for the Super Bowl” ad. This year was no different, with an ad for the gay dating site Mancrunch […]

Today’s guest blogger is Erick Sklogund. Sklogund is a Vikings beat writer and humor columnist for The Observer Herald in Le Seur, Minnesota. The corpse of the Minnesota Vikings’ 2009 season is still warm, but it’s not too soon to reflect on where this team stands among the all-time greats. First things first, though. With […]

Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Johnny Jolly has again been indicted in Harris County Texas. The charges stem from a July 2008 arrest in which Jolly was busted with 200 grams of codeine. The charges were dropped this past summer, but the prosecution vowed to pick the case up again. Jolly faces 20 years in […]

Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Charles Woodson has made play after play this season, many of them game changing and game winning. But today, I submit to you what I believe to be the most impressive play Charles Woodson has made all season. During the fourth quarter of the Baltimore Ravens game, Tramon Williams was flagged […]
