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 [...]
(Disclaimer: The Associated Press released a similar story earlier today, but this was written earlier this week before the AP story was published)
Last season Charles Woodson posted one of the best defensive seasons in Packers history and rightfully took home the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award. The Packers rewarded him with a new [...]
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 [...]
For a good portion of Monday, I found myself thinking about what Sunday night meant to me.
Namely, I was trying to find the primary emotion I was feeling following the Green Bay Packers’ heart-stopping 28-24 win over the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field.
Was it jubilation? Relief? Vindication?
In some ways, I could say “yes” to all three. Emphatically, in [...]
At some point, a unit can only withstand so many injuries.
The Green Bay Packers are not at that point just yet with their defense, but they can likely see it off in the distance.
Wednesday, we learned that inside linebacker Nick Barnett’s wrist injury is much worse than initially thought. Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel [...]
(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 [...]
Okay, so we’ve covered the pretty boys on offense.
For part two, it’s time to look at the tough guys on defense (and those wimps on special teams…I kid, I kid).
Front seven – Yeah, that’s right. We’re going a different way on this one. It seems ridiculous to compare the respective defensive lines/linebacking corps for the [...]
(The Green Bay Packers were off on Sunday. As such, the “Training Camp Stew” will return Monday night.)
Over the weekend, I was listening to a recent Bill Simmons podcast that he did with NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi. The two discussed Lombardi’s “Blue Chip Rankings” article he wrote for NFL.com. It’s a fascinating examination, if you [...]
(Before we begin: Our “Friendly Fire” training camp battles series begins Tuesday.)
Before this week’s over, it will begin.
The two-a-days. The position battles. The fights. The heat – my God, the heat.
No more guessing will be necessary. Okay, there will still be some guessing – but not as much. Before this week’s over, training camp for [...]
As we near 11:01 p.m. Lambeau Time, the Green Bay Packers have a pair of decisions to make.
At 11:01, the Packers can reduce the RFA tenders made to safety Atari Bigby and cornerback Tramon Williams to 110 percent of the 2009 salaries for each player. The Packers reportedly sent letters to those two – along [...]
