Titletown again

We’ll have much more on this tomorrow — the Packers’ 13th world championship hasn’t sunk in yet for me, as it probably hasn’t for most of you — but in the meantime, here are some quick thoughts on the 31-25 Super Bowl win over the Steelers:

–AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! THE PACKERS ARE WORLD CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!!

–With that out of the [...]

Are the 2010 Packers the best six-loss team ever?

That’s the question posed by a Wall Street Journal story today.

All of us who have watched the Packers this year know how close this team was to being, say, 13-3 or 14-2. They got themselves flagged out of the first Chicago game. They lost to the Redskins after Mason Crosby’s field goal went off the [...]

Staking out the enemy: Q&A with Falcons blog

After surviving Philadelphia and Vick last week, well exercising some playoffs demons in the process, the Packers head to one of the toughest road spots in the league Saturday night. Matt Ryan is almost unbeatable at home, but the Packers came closer than almost any team has in the last three taking the Falcons down [...]

I love B.J. Raji

Love is strong word and shouldn’t be tossed around lightly. You should say it when you truly mean it and it takes a real man to come to terms with his feelings. That is why I have no problem saying this.

“I love you B.J. Raji!”

I want to yell it from the mountain tops and maybe [...]

Quick thoughts on Green Bay's 10-3 win and playoffs!

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 [...]

What I’m thankful for…

Yeah, yeah, I know – everyone writes posts like these around this time of year.

But, frankly, Scarlett, I don’t give a damn. I’m writing one, anyways.

The Green Bay Packers, as always, give us plenty to be thankful for. But what, in particular? Well, let’s get to some things now.

I’m thankful for Dom Capers. The job [...]

Releasing Al Harris proves good business sense

What is the old cliche?

I think it is, “It’s better to get rid of a guy a year too soon than a year too late.”

That is how I feel about Al Harris. I know this the third-day take on Harris’ release, but life has gotten in the way of commenting on it earlier. Yesterday, Chris [...]

A requiem for Al

What was first reported early Monday morning became official later Monday morning.

Al Harris was a Green Bay Packer no more.

The team officially released Harris, ending the 36-year old cornerback’s eight-year tenure with the club. The team had until Tuesday to decide if it wanted to active Harris, coming off reconstructive knee surgery, from the PUP [...]

Ranking the injuries: Which are the worst for the Packers?

We all know the Green Bay Packers are a beat-up bunch. It’s something we at OBOD have tried to steer away from as much as possible because, well, we don’t like making excuses about our team. We’re just so un-Vikings fan-ish that way.

So, instead of simply griping about it, I’ve decided to go a different [...]

Regular season game eight at New York: Bruised, battered defense continues its assault

Think back, for a second, to late August. What were your worries regarding the 2010 Green Bay Packers?

Were you worried about the offense? No, not at all. The group was deep, talented and just hitting its stride. Scoring 30 a week? Why not?

What you worried about was the defense. You worried about the pass rush, [...]
