Donald Driver « Ol' Bag of Donuts

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:


–With that out of the [...]

Lady Lambeau's thoughts on Sunday



NFC Championship.

We made it!

Before regular season even started, I thought we’d be here. I was at the first training camp practice when I saw Finley in person for the first time. My jaw dropped. Dude’s huge! I looked at my husband with wide eyes and said “Did you see that guy? He’s a beast!”. I [...]

Driver giving way to Jones and Nelson right before our eyes

Before the season started, most Green Bay Packers fans were hoping this would be the year in which James Jones and Jordy Nelson took significant strides and established themselves as legitimate players.

After all, for as much as we collectively love Donald Driver, we were all too aware of his age and the unforgiving nature of [...]

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 [...]

Our second Packers podcast is here

We’re back at it with our weekly podcast, armed with an ever-increasing jingle bank and plenty of insults for Brett Favre as he prepares to invade Lambeau Field again. There might even be a visit in store from former Packers coach Mike Sherman! And of course, we break down the Packers’ loss to the Miami [...]

A Tuesday morning trip to the question department

And Vikings week, chapter one (technically, chapter three) has officially begun.

That being the case, there’s quite a bit of news surrounding the Green Bay Packers, a team that’s lost three of four and desperately needs to right the ship.

What better time than now to make a trip back to the question department, right? After all, [...]

The 2010 Packers, five games in: Let reality be reality

(Note: My streak of game recaps is officially over at 29. Don’t worry – I’ll start a new one Sunday.)

As Gene, Adam and myself exited FedEx Field on Sunday, following the Green Bay Packers’ gutwrenching 16-13 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins, we found ourselves using variations of the same phrase over and over:

This team just [...]

Regular season game four vs. Detroit: A picture emerges

Four games is four games.

It’s a sample, a taste. And whether a team’s start is atrocious, fantastic, or somewhere in between, four games is not enough to determine how things will go the rest of the way.

But it is enough to paint a picture of what kind of team you have.

The Green Bay Packers - a team [...]

Thursday's mixed bag of donuts: Collins, targets and injuries

(I know, I know – usually the “mixed bag of donuts” piece runs on Wednesdays. But we’re still trying to get caught up after the Monday nighter. It’s crazy how much one day changes things in terms of a schedule.)

By now, we are all aware of what happened with Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins [...]

Underreported storylines for the 2010 season

Remember when Antonio Gates exploded onto the scene a few years back? This may be bigger. However, the more success Finley has will create one major problem: What will happen after the 2010 season? Finley is under contract through 2011, but his scheduled to only make $470,000 this year and $550,000 next season. [...]
