Think the Packers can't keep up with Seattle and San Francisco? Think again

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 [...]

Staking out the enemy: Q&A with Eagles blog

Earlier this season, we talked to JasonB from the Eagles’ blog Bleeding Green Nation. Well, that was in Week 1. Oh my oh my how have things changed since September. Michael Vick was still a backup to Kevin Kolb. The Packers were 100% and gearing up for a special season. It is only fitting that [...]

Staking out the enemy: Q&A with Patriots blog

So the two weeks we have failed to do the weekly opposition, the Packers lost to Atlanta and then last week to Detroit. That won’t happen again. We are taking no more chances, so in Flynn we trust, right!?

Ricky Keeler of Foxboro Blog joins us this week to help us breakdown the hottest team in [...]

Comparing Brady's streak to that of Favre's

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 [...]

A look at opposing schedules spells trouble for the Packers

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.

But first, a look at the playoff picture at the moment.

As of now, there [...]

Staking out the enemy: Q&A with 49ers blog

With a week off due to the holiday weekend and quite honestly, the lack of Falcons blog (yes, I am calling you out ATL) we are back with our weekly Q&A with the opposition. This week Samuel Lam, 49ers blogger of the San Francisco Examiner joins us to help break down Sunday’s game.

1) With Frank [...]

Despite different beginnings, Rodgers and Ryan have succeeded under enormous pressure

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 [...]

A loving (and mocking) look back at our preseason predictions

So, before the season started, Adam, Geno (we’re really liking this nickname for him) and I decided to hit y’all with a three-pack of predictions for the 2010 season. Not going to give you a link to those – otherwise, why would you read this?

With the season just past the midway point – and the [...]

Staking out the enemy: Q&A with Cowboys blog

With the Cowboys being 1-6 and without Tony Romo, Sunday’s game doesn’t have the same luster as it once did when the 2010 season commenced. However, there is always fireworks with the Packers and Cowboys meet as this rivalry runs deep through many games, coaches and championships. We invited the guys at Blogging the Boys [...]

Staking out the enemy: Q&A with Jets blog

I’m sure we all saw some of the Jets this summer, they were hard to miss. But how much do you think you really know about the Jets outside of the names on the back of their jerseys? Well, Brian Bassett of theJetsBlog.com knows this team inside and out, so that is where we turn [...]
