The National Football League’s offseason is often a cold, dark time.
Sure, there’s free agency. And the draft. And an occasional OTA or minicamp practice. But mostly it’s a lot of waiting. Training camp and preseason games can be even worse, because you’re so close to the regular season, but not quite there. The injuries that [...]
Coming into day two of the 2014 draft, the Green Bay Packers still had a few clearly-defined needs, namely inside linebacker, wide receiver and tight end.
General manager Ted Thompson used two of his team’s three second-day selections to address those needs. The remaining pick was spent adding some muscle in the defensive trenches.
The highlight of [...]
We’re almost there, everyone. Less than 24 hours sits between us and the start of the 2014 NFL Draft.
The league tested our patience by making us wait two extra weeks. But we passed the test.
And since we’re oh-so-close to the start of the draft, we’ve decided to get into the mock draft game and do [...]
The point of this post is to catch up on all the free agency news involving the Green Bay Packers that doesn’t include Julius Peppers.
I kept thinking it’d be easy enough to do, but as soon as I thought that, MORE news involving the Packers popped up (dang, this team has been busy). So this [...]
True story: I started writing a post late Friday night. In it, I focused on which side was right in the debate over how Ted Thompson handles free agency.
I just needed to add a few more thoughts to it and it would be ready to go sometime Saturday afternoon.
You’ll never read it now, of course, [...]
If you live in Wisconsin this week, these are wonderful times. The Packers are world champions for the 13th time. The three Lombardi Trophies proudly displayed in the final room of the Packers Hall of Fame are about to get a new friend. (Side note: We love the spotlights on the trophies, the music playing [...]
I can’t lie – my hands are still shaking.
I can not stop smiling.
Laughter emits from my body every three seconds, for no reason whatsoever.
And, frankly, I’m not sure if anything I write in this space is going to make much sense.
But, really, how could it make any sense? It’s unbelievable.
We did it. We did it. [...]
We made it!
Before regular season even started, I thought we’d be here. I was at the first training camp practice when I saw Finley in person for the first time. My jaw dropped. Dude’s huge! I looked at my husband with wide eyes and said “Did you see that guy? He’s a beast!”. I [...]
So all season we have done our weekly Q&A segment with an opposing blogger of the other team. Taking this is the third time we have met the Bears, you all have probably all grown to love Jonathon Carroll from either his blog Bears Headquarters or through Twitter. We have basically run out of questions [...]
No catchy, clever intro here.
Let’s get down to business.
Here are three things the Green Bay Packers must, must, must do if they are to advance to the Su…wait…I don’t even want to say that phrase yet…defeat the Chicago Bears in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game (still get chills writing that).
Win the special teams battle. Or, at the very [...]
