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 [...]
Up until Monday night, it’d been quite a magic act pulled off by the Green Bay Packers.
The Packers, using something similar to sleight of hand, actually had us believing they had changed many of their famously - or is that infamously? - self-defeating ways from previous years. Also apparently gone were the poor special teams performances this [...]
Okay, so we’ve covered the pretty boys on offense.

Even though the movie “Rounders” is about poker, the game the Vikings and Judas played all offseason was essentially a game of high stakes poker. (I have been waiting on a decision from the man who make waffle makers blush [...]
Well, it looks like that Sunday night Bears-Packers season opener at Lambeau just got a whole lot more interesting.
The Bears, longing for the days of, well, Sid Luckman, finally got themselves a big-name quarterback this afternoon when they acquired Jay Cutler from the Denver Broncos.
