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 [...]
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.
Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions felt like a crippling shot to the playoff hopes of the Green Bay Packers.
A look at the remaining schedules for the teams Green Bay is chasing in the NFC playoff race doesn’t brighten the picture at all.

There has been enough talk about Aaron Rodgers on this site in the past 24 hours and I have nothing left to add to about the Miami aftermath, so I’ll pose a question:
Why do trade rumors follow around Ted Thompson like Linus and his blanket when he has never had a history of making trades? [...]
(Before we begin: Tuesday is normally our day to take a glance at the Green Bay Packers’ opposition for that week. As much as we’d love to write about the Washington Redskins, sorry, there was just too much else going on Tuesday. Don’t worry – you’ll get our full wrap-up of the D.C. trip next [...]
Since week one was such a smashing success in our weekly picks segment, we have decided to return for round two because we know you all enjoyed our Nostradamus-like predictions. And Gene has decided to toss last’s week simple approach to offer more insight (not sure if this is good or bad).
After a few twists [...]
