It has become a weekly tradition here to handout some of our “namesakes” to players who provided us highlights and lowlights from that week’s game. Since the Packers were on a bye week, there were no donuts to be handed out. But fear not OBOD faithful, we have decided to handout some donuts for the [...]
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 [...]
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, [...]
Outside of the disappointing news regarding Morgan Burnett – no link, you can just scroll down – there was a lot going on with the Green Bay Packers on Monday.
Let’s get to the rest of it, quick-hit, bullet-point style right now:
McCarthy downplays Rodgers’ comments
Mike McCarthy said he and Aaron Rodgers are “on the same page” [...]
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 [...]
Good morning, OBOD readers — Gene here. Chris is off fuming somewhere, so I thought I’d weigh in with a few, shall we say, more measured thoughts about last night’s loss to the Bears. Chris’s recap is coming, and I can tell you after talking to him last night, it will be colorful.
In the meantime, [...]
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 [...]
Don’t worry – you didn’t misread the title.
This week’s Wednesday special is going to be all about the running backs. No injury reports. No mention of Mason Crosby winning NFC Special Teams Player of the Week (outside of that one, of course). Nothing but running backs.
And, really, why not? The position is the focus of [...]
After each win, teams hand out game balls to those who turned in outstanding performances.
We here at OBOD don’t have any balls to hand out. Wait – that sounded terrible. Let’s try that again.
We here at OBOD don’t have any game balls to hand out. But we do have donuts (at least hypothetically). And, to [...]
If you were expecting Sunday’s game with the Philadelphia Eagles to be a thing of true beauty – a Rolls Royce, Cristal, Megan Fox type of performance – you might have ended up a bit disappointed.
However, if you were looking for a gritty, gutty showing – think Jeep, Crown Royal or maybe Elizabeth Banks (ladies, [...]
