If you were wondering when – or, maybe, if – we would ever see Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre standing side-by-side again, you got your answer Saturday night.
In a rather surprising turn of events, the pair came together as presenters at the NFL Honors awards show in New Orleans. Outside of four post-game meetings, by [...]
I promised you a second part of our early offseason primer for the Green Bay Packers and dammit, that’s what you’re going to get.
Part one, for those who missed it (shame on you if you are one such person), can be found here. In part two, we’re talking contracts, the draft and free agency, [...]
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 [...]

Hey man – how’s it going? Silly question, I know. You must be on top of the world right now (or, at least, 60 minutes away from it).
Anyways, I’m writing you today to tell you I’m sorry. That’s right – your old buddy Chris is choking down [...]
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 [...]
“Flashbulb memories” is a psychology term used to define specific moments. Or, at least that’s what I think it’s called. I only eeked out a B in my Psych 101 class in college.
Either way, these moments are referred to as such because – for the rest of your life – you will be able to [...]
In guiding his team to a 45-3 blowout win over the New York Jets on Dec. 6, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady set an NFL record for most consecutive regular season home wins at 26.
In case you weren’t sure, the record had previously been held by a man we know (all too) well: Brett [...]

This whole season I kept coming back to this quote when thinking of Brett Favre. The night his streak ends I find it fitting to put this all into context…one…last…time.
Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan are strikingly different – and strikingly similar.
Rodgers is a West Coast kid, through and through. He grew up in Chico, California, and played college ball at Butte College before transfering to Cal. Ryan cut his teeth on the East Coast, growing up in Pennsylvania before making a name for himself at [...]
I had the pleasure of watching the Packers game at the Hawk and Dove on Capitol Hill yesterday with a bar full of jovial Packers fans, including the esteemed Holly Phelps, blogger for Cheesehead TV, BrentFavre.com and a handful of other places. Walking out after the Packers destroyed the Minnesota Vikings, Holly and I were [...]
