With the Oakland Raiders coming to town to face the Green Bay Packers, we sat down for five questions with Thoughts From the Dark Side. Here’s their take on Sunday’s contest.
After hemming and hawing a while, we decided to take a look around the NFL to see who the top teams are, who’s in the MVP conversation and who makes absolutely no sense. Here’s what we came up with.
A look around the NFL after seven weeks. Here are the things that made us say what the fuck? We’ll give you the top teams, top players and a few idiots that make the game hard to watch.
Here’s a look around the NFL after six weeks. Let us know what you think. Making statements San Francisco 49ers We called the Niners surprising last week, but we’ll call them legit this week. Jim Harbaugh’s team went into Detroit and took care of the Lions. They’re 5-1 and their victory in week six proved […]
A look at what’s going on around the NFL after five weeks, including the surprises, top 10 teams, top five players, who’s #winning and who’s #losing. Feel free to chime in.
A look at the NFL after four weeks, including surprise teams, underachievers, power rankings, who’s #winning and #losing. Check it out and add your thoughts.
Certainly, this is another subjective list, but it’s hard to argue with the Green Bay Packers as the franchise with the best quarterbacks in NFL history. The important thing to note here is quarterbacks is plural, so this isn’t a Johnny Unitas vs. Joe Montana argument. NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek recently took a look at every NFL […]
This probably wasn’t the best offseason for a lockout, at least as far as the Green Bay Packers organization is concerned. Every team coming off a Super Bowl win experiences some sort of hangover. The players are partying, making personal appearances, getting their faces in the media and partaking in all kinds of stupid promotional and […]
The Green Bay Packers will select at No. 32 in the first round of tonight’s NFL Draft and as you would expect, there have been some hits and plenty of misses at that particular spot in recent years. Here’s a look at the players taken at No. 32 in the past 10 years and what […]
Both of the Green Bay Packers starting cornerbacks, Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams, made ESPN’s cornerback power rankings list. Woodson finished third and Williams finished seventh. Not surprisingly, the top two in the rankings were the New York Jets’ Darrelle Revis and the Oakland Raiders’ Nnamdi Asomugha, who received all the first and second place votes.
We talked about it for much of the season — Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams has developed into one of the league’s best cover corners. Now, the hardcore football geek statistics have validated the statement. Williams appears near the top of Football Outsiders cornerback charting stats for 2010.
The good news is this. Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly is working out. The bad news is, he’s not any smarter than he used to be. Jolly is working out in Houston with former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell. That’s right, arguably the biggest draft bust of all time.
Despite rampant speculation that one or more of the Green Bay Packers defensive assistant coaches would get a defensive coordinator position with another team this offseason, the team’s defensive staff will remain as it was in 2010. The Oakland Raiders, who had the lone remaining opening at defensive coordinator, have filled the position with Chuck Bresnahan, […]
The Oakland Raiders remain the only NFL team with a defensive coordinator opening and, for whatever reason, they’re in no hurry to fill it.
When head coach Hue Jackson does get around to interviewing candidates, Green Bay Packers assistant head coach Winston Moss and safeties coach Darren Perry figure to get a shot.
Personally, I thought we made it pretty clear. Soon-to-be-former Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha isn’t likely to sign with the Green Bay Packers, even though he’s expressed an interest in rejoining former teammate Charles Woodson.
Sure, it’s a wonderful thought, pairing Asomugha with Tramon Williams and moving Woodson to free safety. Asomugha, Williams, Woodson and Nick Collins — three All Pros and one in the making.
The names of several Green Bay Packers defensive coaches have been flying around as candidates for the various defensive coordinator openings around the league, but it’s now looking less likely the Packers staff will be purged. On Wednesday, the Philadelphia Eagles, one of the four teams with an opening, hired Juan Castillo, their own offensive […]
Green Bay Packers defensive line coach Mike Trgovac says he’s staying in Green Bay. Trgovac’s name has been mentioned in connection with the open defensive coordinator positions, which are Philadelphia, Arizona and Oakland. Tennessee will also have to hire a defensive coordinator after the team canned head coach Jeff Fisher, last week. Trgovac apparently isn’t […]
Perhaps lost in the hype surrounding the Green Bay Packers’ matchup with the Chicago Bears for the NFC Championship is this important nugget — Packers defensive coordinator isn’t going anywhere. There was talk towards the end of the season Capers should be and could be considered for an NFL head coaching job because of the […]
We didn’t pay much attention to the fact Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha became a free agent after his contract voided, earlier this week. The Green Bay Packers already have two Pro Bowl-caliber cornerbacks in Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams. They don’t really need another. However, there are reports Asomugha is interested in playing for […]
We’re biased, but we obviously think the best rivalry in the NFL is the Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings. Frankly, I wouldn’t piss on a Vikings fan if he were on fire and I felt that way even before a long-time hero decided he needed to stab an entire fan base in the back. […]
