So if you have listened to our podcasts, (which you should) you know we have a Steelers friend – Dave from South Bend. Well, Dave is actually born and bred in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Why is he a Steelers fan we still don’t know, even after prodding him during our podcast. Anyways, Dave is also a [...]
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 [...]
It wasn’t the best game the Packers played this year, but it also wasn’t the worst. In the most important game of the year, the Packers came away with a hard fought victory, which is all that matters. They also didn’t do anything to sway my opinion that they can go into Philadelphia and win [...]
As Matt Flynn marched — well, marched is too strong of a word; maybe nudged? — the Packers down the field in the final four minutes of last night’s game against the New England Patriots, I let a taboo thought of optimism enter my head for just a second.
What if this kid actually throws a [...]
The bye week not only gives the team a needed breather, but also those who cover and blog about the team, since god only knows that Ol’ Bag of Donuts needs a break! I kid, I kid. However, the bye week does let us have a little more fun with our posts since there isn’t [...]
Okay, now we can say the Green Bay Packers’ defense is devastated by injury.
Wednesday, we learned that outside linebacker Brad Jones’ season is indeed over. Jones has been placed on injured reserve and will undergo surgery on his damaged shoulder. The injury initially occurred in camp and was apparently significantly re-injured in Sunday night’s win [...]
Last week, the big debate amongst fans of the Green Bay Packers centered around the team’s left tackle position.
Some felt veteran Chad Clifton needed to give way to rookie Bryan Bulaga, using age and/or injuries as the main reason for their beliefs. On that one, I firmly backed Clifton.
With that said, the following statement may come [...]
Man, Sunday’s kind of stink when there’s no Green Bay Packers game, don’t they?
Well, fear not – we’ve got Packers football tonight. Green Bay heads into Soldier Spaceship – er, Soldier Field – for a Monday Night contest with the Chicago Bears (7:30 p.m. Lambeau Time).
In this matchup of 2-0 teams, who has the edge [...]
Conundrums are a pain in the you-know-what for football teams. They wreck the “keep it simple, stupid” approach that most thrive on.
We at OBOD, however, love conundrums. They give us a chance to come down on one side or another of an important Green Bay Packers-related issue and, of course, stir the pot – something [...]
To many Green Bay Packers fans, the first 30 minutes of Sunday’s home tilt with the Buffalo Bills no doubt felt like an exercise in torture.
Facing an extremely undermanned opponent, the Packers played as though victory was all but assured – even if no actual effort was required. The result of that? A mere six-point [...]
