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 [...]
Day two of the 2014 NFL Draft left a lot of Green Bay Packers fans feeling underwhelmed.
It wasn’t an awful day, by any stretch – just one that left a lot of people shaking their heads and hoping the team would close the draft on a much better note.
Well, Packers fans can rest easy now [...]
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 [...]
There were three players I really liked for the Green Bay Packers in round one of the 2014 NFL Draft.
And through the first half of the round Thursday night, things were looking good. Great, actually. All three were still on the board. The Packers might get to choose between two, or even all three, 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 [...]
To my fellow fans, I bring you good tidings of great joy.
We made it, everyone.
It’s here. The 2014 NFL Draft is finally here. Okay, not quite – but almost.
(If that makes you feel like singing this, well, you aren’t alone.)
For the Green Bay Packers, however, this is an incredibly important three-day stretch. In fact, it’s [...]
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, [...]
Lately there has been a lot of hand-wringing amongst Green Bay Packers fans. Another early playoff exit can do that to a fanbase.
Fans are mad about the injuries that seem to plague the team every year, the continued employment of defensive coordinator Dom Capers and some are even beginning to wonder just how good a [...]

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 [...]
