Happy Thanksgiving, all — we’re back with another Ol’ Bag of Donuts podcast, recapping the win over the Vikings (and taking some time to mock them), previewing Sunday’s big tilt with the Falcons, answering some reader questions and placing another call to our good friend, disgraced former Green Bay Packers coach Mike Sherman.
Check it out [...]
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 [...]
First, let me say this: I have a personal policy not to root for the Vikings in ANY situation. There was even a game a year or two ago, where the Packers needed the Vikings to win and help them out, where I simply watched without emotion. Yes, I hate them that much.
Why, you ask? [...]
(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 [...]

–Brad Childress said he talked to Brett Favre twice this week, but couldn’t pin him down on how he feels about returning, because Favre had other things — like landscaping — on his mind.
–Childress said Favre has “earned that latitude” to essentially take as long as he wants to make a decision, possibly even [...]
Darren Sharper weighed in from the Super Bowl on Nick Collins’ contract situation with the Green Bay Packers, which in some ways mirrors his own departure from the Packers after the 2004 [...]
The Green Bay Packers are in the playoffs.
You know what? I’m going to say that one again, this time with feeling:
THE GREEN BAY PACKERS ARE IN THE (EXPLETIVE DELETED) PLAYOFFS!
Sunday’s 48-10 home demolition of the woeful Seattle Seahawks – what’s happened to THEM? – combined with a New York Giants loss puts the now 10-5 [...]
(Please note: I was originally planning on writing my Christmas list for the Green Bay Packers as my usual lighthearted Tuesday post. But then Sunday night happened in Charlotte, North Carolina. And, well, that’s just too good to pass up.)
Well, well, well – it looks as though there’s a little lover’s spat going on here [...]
