Favre needs surgery to play in 2010, he says

Brett Favre apparently needs ankle surgery to play in 2010, according to this report from ESPN’s Ed Werder.

My take: Well, it’s official. He’s playing next year, and just needed the proper excuse to skip training camp. He’d be able to rehab in plenty of time, but if you hem and haw a little longer, have [...]

Putting the final bow on Green Bay's 2010 draft

Look a little closer and you’ll see that this group has the chance to make a rather significant impact, both next season and for years to [...]

A look at the REST of the 2010 NFL Draft (part three)

I’ve given you the drafts I liked.

I’ve given you the drafts I did not like.

For the final part of our look at the respective drafts of the other 31 NFL teams, I will give you the drafts I am unsure of, as of now.

Wait a second – unsure?

Seems a little anti-climactic, no? Looks like someone [...]

A look at the REST of the 2010 NFL Draft (part two)

Earlier today, I listed the teams whom I felt had good drafts.

In part two, I’ll list the drafts I did not like. Later tonight I’ll wrap this series up with the drafts I am unsure of.

And, in case you were wondering, I’ll put the final touches on the Green Bay Packers’ 2010 draft on Tuesday.

A look at the REST of the 2010 NFL Draft (part one)

Most of OBOD’s (damn fine) coverage of the 2010 NFL Draft has centered around our beloved Green Bay Packers.

Of course, 31 other teams were hard at work, as well. Some of those teams did well for themselves Thursday through Saturday; others, well, did not.

I’m not smart enough to come up with grades for each of [...]

Thompson answers more questions with final day selections

But such is the case with the Green Bay Packers and the four players they took to close the 2010 NFL Draft. Each of those players, in their own way, will alter the Pack’s [...]

Running back, defensive end round out Green Bay's draft

The Green Bay Packers’ 2010 draft is complete.

The Pack’s final two selections focused equally on offense and defense. In the sixth round, Green Bay selected Buffalo running back James Starks (No. 193 overall). With their final pick of the draft, the Packers took East Carolina defensive end C.J. Wilson (No. 230 overall).

First, Starks. Here’s what we know [...]

Packers focus on offense with fifth round picks

Day two of the 2010 NFL Draft was all about defense for the Green Bay Packers.

With their first two picks of day three – both coming in the fifth round – the Packers shifted to the other side of the ball, selecting Penn State tight end Andrew Quarless and TCU guard Marshall Newhouse.

Quarless was the [...]

Some possible last day targets for the Pack

Very shortly, the third and final day of the 2010 NFL Draft will commence.

The Green Bay Packers have four picks today – two in the fifth round, one in the sixth and one in the seventh. The Packers sent their fourth round selection to Philadelphia to trade up for safety Morgan Burnett on Friday.

Here are some [...]

Selections of Neal, Burnett tell much about the condition of Green Bay's 3-4 scheme

By targeting defensive line and safety with Green Bay’s day two selections, Thompson showed he has much more confidence in his team’s outside linebackers and corners than most fans/analysts [...]
