Tickets to the annual Green Bay Packers Family Night sold out in just over 24 hours. For a practice. A practice where it appears the Packers will be pocketing some serious dough.
The schedule for the Packers’ 2015 preseason was released yesterday, and as uninteresting as the preseason may be, this schedule has a little … spice.
Well, we’re getting ahead of ourselves. We’re assuming there will be a preseason, which is no certainty considering the current lack of a labor deal. If there are four meaningless games in 2011, here’s what you get to look forward to as a Green Bay Packers fan. Some of the exact dates are TBD. @ […]
The Green Bay Packers fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 17-13, Thursday night in their preseason finale. The game wasn’t easy to watch. The starters played only one series and veterans Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant, Donald Driver, Chad Clifton and Charles Woodson were healthy scratches. There were some interesting developments in the game, however, and […]
The Green Bay Packers offense is potent, we knew that, but in their longest outing of the preseason against last year’s AFC champs, they put any doubts to rest. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who I have a hard time believing isn’t on his way to becoming the best player in the NFL, cut up the Colts […]
We don’t put a lot of stock in preseason football, but it’s clear after the Green Bay Packers 27-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Saturday night the Packers defense needs to address some issues. By the time the starters departed in the second quarter, the Browns had a 21-14 lead. The game seems eerily […]
The Green Bay Packers hung on for a 44-37 preseason win over the defending NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals last night in Phoenix, but that really doesn’t begin to tell the story. A friend turned to me this morning and asked, “Do you ever remember a preseason when the Packers looked this good?” The answer is […]
The Green Bay Packers beat the Buffalo Bills 31-21 in a preseason tilt Saturday night, as the team improved to 2-0 in meaningless games. While I will again stress that no one wins anything in the preseason, Packers’ fans have some reason for excitement entering the 2009 season (which we wish would get here already). […]
The Green Bay Packers beat the Cleveland Browns 17-0 Saturday night in the Upper Midwest Shrine Game. While beating the Browns, a team that may be in the running for the NFL’s worst this season, in an exhibition game isn’t anything to get terribly excited about, there were some interesting developments to come out of […]
From out of left field, the Green Bay Packers punter of last season and the only one in camp for most of this year, Jon Ryan, was cut yesterday to make room for former Washington Redskins’ punter Derrick Frost. Also cut was linebacker Abdul Hodge, who had a pretty nice training camp and showed real potential […]
The Green Bay Packers final preseason game is only exciting because it means that opening day is just around the corner. With most of the roster spots set, there is very little drama tonight in terms of position battles. There are a couple things to keep an eye on, though. First, how will Monty’s favorite […]
And so the DeShawn Wynn era in Green Bay has come to an end. No sooner did the running back, who started four of the Packers’ first seven games before going on injured reserve last year, return to practice (yesterday) from his latest injury than he got the ax (today). Also axed was receiver Chris “My Idol […]
I have finally managed to download the photos from the San Francisco debacle and post them. Click the photo for the flickr stream.
From the “I Got 99 Problems But a Bitch Ain’t One” file came this past Saturday night’s preseason loss (34-6) to the disgustingly bad (5-11, last year) San Francisco 49ers. First, having witnessed this debacle first hand, I have to say, Jarrett Bush – you’re cut! It seemed each time I looked up from my […]
The Green Bay Packers first preseason game is in the books, and although we could care less about preseason scores – especially that of the first game – the Packers lost to the Cincinnati Bengals, 20-17, before what seemed to be a full stadium of drunken Wisconsinites. Beyond the obvious questions, I wonder how many […]
