The Philadelphia Eagles have made some great moves this offseason. So, of course we already know they’re going to win the Super Bowl this season or at least that’s what they’d have us believe. May as well not even play the season.
The Green Bay Packers let defensive end Cullen Jenkins sign with the Philadelphia Eagles in free agency. For Philadelphia, it’s one in a series of moves designed to stop Aaron Rodgers & Co.
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.
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 […]
The Philadelphia Eagles are reportedly interested in Brett Favre as a backup to Michael Vick. Although it’s probably a long shot, we all know how these things go.
Pro Football Talk counted down the four worst moments in Green Bay Packers history since 1987, which was the last season with a work stoppage. Here’s their list. 4. Brett Favre’s return to Lambeau Field as a member of the Minnesota Vikings 3. 4th-and-26 (2003 NFC Divisional loss to Philadelphia) 2. Super Bowl XXXII loss […]
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.
ESPN continued their NFL power ranking series with the coach rankings. So where is this year’s Super Bowl winning coach? The Green Bay Packers’ Mike McCarthy came in fourth. Leading the way was the New England Patriots’ Bill Belichick and his three Super Bowl wins.
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.
It seems like we were talking about this at this time last year. Oh yeah, we were. Then-Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was clearly on his way out of Philly and Brett Favre was giving every indication he planned on staying retired, which, in hindsight would have been a tremendous idea. So, why not reunite McNabb with his former offensive coordinator, then-Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress? Obviously, a lot has changed since then.
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 […]
A week ago, Green Bay Packers defensive line coach Mike Trgovac appeared destined for a defensive coordinator job, either in Denver, where his old boss John Fox was named coach, or Philadelphia, which has been sitting on their hands since firing Sean McDermott. It now looks like Trgovac will be staying with the Packers, unless […]
Green Bay Packers defensive line coach Mike Trgovac looks like he’s going to have some job offers once the Packers season ends. The Denver Broncos — who’ve hired Trgovac’s former boss, John Fox, as their head coach — appear ready to offer Trgovac their defensive coordinator job. It’s a role Trgovac is familiar with — […]
Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams made the Pro Bowl after all. Although many saw Williams as one of the biggest snubs when the Pro Bowl rosters were announced, Williams, who was a first alternate, has been added to the NFC roster because the Philadelphia Eagles Asante Samuel cannot play due to injury. Tramon had […]
It’s like t-shirt time, only better, because no one from Jersey is involved. Shawn Neuser takes a look at the Green Bay Packers 21-16 wild card victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Without any adieu, here’s a review of the Packers’ playoff win in Philly. 14:55, 1st quarter — First-and-10 at the Philadelphia 15 and Michael […]
No one has ever accused Philadelphia Eagles fans as being a classy bunch. In fact, everyone pretty much thinks they’re a bunch of fucking assholes, which is absolutely the case. This is the group that cheered when Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin lay motionless on the turf after suffering a neck injury in Philadelphia in […]
He’s this cool. Right in the middle of his post-game interview with Fox’s Pam Oliver, Rodgers gets interrupted by Philadelphia receiver and fellow Cal Bear DeSean Jackson, who wants a man hug. Rodgers obliges and then continues the interview without missing a beat.
It came down to the wire again, but Tramon Williams came up big and the Packers held on to beat Philadelphia 21-16 in a game highlighted by missed field goals and the sudden appearance of a Green Bay running game. Michael Vick nearly led the Eagles back, marching his team down the field in less […]
It’s one of those things that sits in the back of your mind that you don’t want to remember. And then someone brings it up and you can’t help but think about what could have been. The Green Bay Packers are playing the Philadelphia Eagles this week. You know the play I’m talking about. 4th […]
