You’ve got to love the NFC North. Outside of Green Bay, it’s populated with a bunch of idiots. The Chicago Bears are run by idiots. Minnesota Vikings players can’t stop getting arrested. In Detroit, they may not be stupid, but we’ll bet the hype died down a little bit today.
We wanted to kill ourselves… wait… no. We’ve found the most brilliant article in the Bleacher Report catalog, which is a gigantic piece of brilliance itself, and it turns out it’s written by a Minnesota Vikings fan. We’ll annotate it for you, since it’s obviously way above any Green Bay Packers fan.
The three teams competing for second place in the NFC North have been working real hard to take home that trophy this offseason. Here are the latest developments from Chicago, Minnesota and Detroit.
Ah, free agency, what an exhausting wench you are. Today, we’ve got three major trades completed, including the one that makes the Eagles the second-best team in the NFC and the Redskins making their usual stupid moves by overpaying some guy who won’t amount to shit.
The Green Bay Packers lost left guard Daryn Colledge today and defensive end Cullen Jenkins and receiver James Jones will likely be off the market before the day is over.
Although teams can’t begin signing free agents until Friday, this is the second day they could negotiate with them. Several clubs took advantage and reached agreements with players. The Green Bay Packers jumped into the fray by reaching an agreement with Mason Crosby. Here are today’s developments that could impact the Packers’ quest to repeat […]
Teams can’t officially sign free agents until Friday, but that didn’t stop several players from agreeing to contracts. That, plus the Minnesota Vikings pursuit of Donovan McNabb and Nnamdi Asomugha’s first suitor.
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Joe Webb is working out with Brett Favre, which means two things — Favre is probably actually retired and Webb will soon be able to throw interceptions with the all-time greats.
Not that anyone needs to help out in this department because it always has a life of its own, but NFL.com’s Gil Brandt has opened the door on the possible return of one Brett Favre… again. Brandt says Favre might be getting the itch again, but this year things are a little different.
MADISON – In what anthropologists and health care professionals are calling an unprecedented and historical breakthrough in medical science, a University of Wisconsin study reported in this week’s Journal of the American Medical Association claims that Green Bay Packer fans have “genetically cultivated –- over a long period of time –- the most significantly diaphanous epidermis […]
Seriously, this is the dumbest thing you’ll see all day… wait, no, all week. Probably all month for that matter. The Minnesota Vikings are trying to get a new stadium. For the most part, no one cares including the fans.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was asked several questions about the team’s quarterback situation and struggled to say anything positive about rookie Christian Ponder or default incumbent Joe Webb. Peterson suggests he can’t see Ponder starting when the season opens.
We’d expect nothing less from a member of the Minnesota Vikings. Running back Adrian Peterson is ditching his own football camp, which begins tomorrow, claiming he has to film a show for the NFL Network. We’d probably ignore this if the camp wasn’t called the Old Spice Adrian Peterson Football Camp and the NFL Network didn’t say Peterson isn’t filming his spot until July.
There’s been a lot of talk about the Minnesota Vikings moving, specifically to Los Angeles, if the team doesn’t get a new stadium, but that is beginning to look more and more unlikely. The deal the Vikings are trying to craft with the state for a new stadium in suburban Arden Hills is far from done, but it does appear a little closer.
Two of the Minnesota Vikings main offensive weapons, running back Adrian Peterson and receiver Percy Harvin, are lobbying for the team to sign receiver Plaxico Burress, who was released from prison earlier this month. Burress hasn’t played football since 2008 after pleading guilty to gun charges and will be looking for a new home to resume his career when the lockout ends.
Although the Green Bay Packers have given every indication they plan to re-sign kicker Mason Crosby, who will be a free agent when the lockout ends, things don’t always go according to plan. It’s conceivable, although probably not likely, another team will do something to pry Crosby away from the Packers. In that scenario, the team may be forced to turn to a familiar face — former kicker Ryan Longwell.
ESPN The Magazine’s annual Best In Sports issue, which will hit the newsstands on Friday, has determined what we long knew to be true — the Green Bay Packers are the best franchise in sports. That’s right, not the NFL, but all of sports. How did they arrive at the obvious, you ask? The rankings […]
We’re dropping some real football knowledge this morning, courtesy of the Los Angeles Times’ NFL writer, Sam Farmer. Farmer is seriously keyed in and he doesn’t make you want to stab yourself in the eyes when you read his work, like, say, a certain Sports Illustrated writer. In addition to being all over the lockout, […]
Former Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle John Randle, who had a very public rivalry with quarterback Brett Favre when he was with the Green Bay Packers, still doesn’t think much of Favre. In fact, he recently compared Favre to a reality television show. “I’m done following him,” said Randle, who sacked Favre 13.5 times. “That went […]
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh probably should play for the Minnesota Vikings. Why? He’s just that stupid. Last week, Suh repeated a proclamation he made in March that everyone with good sense immediately dismissed and then forgot about — the Detroit Lions can go 16-0 this year.
