Whether they’re trying to or not, the NFL is boring the hell out of us right now and so are the Green Bay Packers. Here’s a recap of where we stand and where things might go.
After years of employing a buffoon as a general manager, the new Chicago Bears front office might actually attempt to make the team better this offseason. That plan reportedly starts with receiver Vincent Jackson.
The dimwits leading the Minnesota Vikings organization are reportedly still trying to win now instead of building for the future. While this level of idiocy isn’t surprising coming from the Vikings, it’s likely to result in some changes in the offseason. We take a look at the possibilities.
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.
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.
Fox Sports’ Adam Schein compiled his third annual NFL organization rankings and not surprisingly, the Green Bay Packers came out on top, dethroning two-time winner, the New England Patriots. What does this mean? Probably not much, other than the Packers rate highly in several subjective categories. While the categories used to determine the rankings — […]
The douchiest team in the NFL… no, sports history, the Minnesota Vikings need themselves a quarterback. Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb needs a new team after falling out of favor with coach Mike Shanahan. Well, you can put two and two together, as we did some time ago.
At least it isn’t the Minnesota Vikings. The Chicago Bears nailed down the NFC North title Monday night by destroying the aforementioned poor excuse for an NFL franchise, 40-14. The Bears are 10-4 and can finish no worse than 10-6. If the Green Bay Packers finish with the same record by winning their last two […]
Several teams are interested in former Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris, including one NFC North team, according to the National Football Post’s Joe Fortenbaugh. At least six teams have inquired about Harris, whom the Packers released on Monday, according to the report. The NFC North team is likely the Minnesota Vikings or Detroit Lions. […]
We gave you the midseason awards: other people’s edition yesterday and we also told you what we thought about midseason awards. The best word to summarize would be this one: indifference. However, we promised you our midseason awards at some point, and here they are. The difference between our midseason awards and other people’s are […]
Minnesota state Rep. Paul Kohls is proposing the state sell the Metrodome to the Minnesota Vikings for $1. In exchange, the Vikings would have to agree to stay in the state for 20 years or face a $5 million fine, which is a drop in the bucket for an NFL team. This comes on the […]
Former Denver Broncos’ coach and Chicago native Mike Shanahan is “extremely interested” in coaching the Chicago Bears, according to ESPN. Shanahan would be reunited with Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler, who had two strong seasons under Shanahan in Denver, if he did take over in the Windy City. “The job is really attractive to Mike,” a […]
According to NFL analyst and former Baltimore Ravens coach Brian Billick, Chicago Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler is the new Jeff George. George is the former No. 1 overall draft pick who played for seven teams in his 14 NFL seasons. He had the strongest arm I’ve ever seen, but was severely lacking in the areas […]
The Chicago Bears have had a lot of quarterbacks over the years – most of them bad. As a Green Bay Packers’ fan, that gives me a warm feeling inside not unlike that of a belly full of whiskey. Here’s a rundown of the Bears’ quarterbacks by John Moschitta Jr., who you may remember as […]
At least if you believe several reports that have come out this week. It really should surprise no one, however, if Chicago Bears’ coach Lovie Smith coaches his last game for the team on January 3rd at Ford Field. The Bears, at 4-7, have been atrocious this season after just about everyone in Chicago anointed […]
We all know Minnesota Vikings’ fans are a classy bunch, and by “classy” I mean an ignorant, classless bunch of scumbags. Well, now we know why. Not only do they breed them that way, they teach them the ways of the douchebag at a young age. It’s a wonder anyone from Minnesota can escape this […]
The legend of Detroit Lions rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford began yesterday. Stafford threw for five touchdowns and a rookie-record 422 yards, as the Lions rallied for a 38-37 victory over the Cleveland Browns. However, that isn’t quite the whole story. Stafford threw the game-winning touchdown pass with zero seconds on the clock after suffering a […]
We reported it in October, and now it’s official. The Minnesota Vikings have inked a new deal with head coach Brad Childress, extending his contract through the 2013 season at a cost of approximately $4 million to $5 million a season. Childress currently makes about $2 million a year. “Brad has done a tremendous job […]
Yesterday, I wrote about how the NFC North is shaping up as the strongest division in football, which says one thing: this division will be both tough and competitive. Any one of three teams has a legitimate opportunity to win the NFC North. In addition to the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago Bears and Minnesota […]
Certainly this is open for debate, but several people have mentioned the NFC North as the potential powerhouse division in football this season. That would be a big jump for a division that produced the first 0-16 team in NFL history, a 6-10 Green Bay Packers team with a sieve-like defense, a mediocre version of […]
