So if you have listened to our podcasts, (which you should) you know we have a Steelers friend – Dave from South Bend. Well, Dave is actually born and bred in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Why is he a Steelers fan we still don’t know, even after prodding him during our podcast. Anyways, Dave is also a [...]
Green Bay Packers fans, you can rest easy.
Tramon Williams isn’t going anywhere.
Williams inked a four-year extension Tuesday that will keep him in green and gold through the 2014 season. The total value of the deal is believed to be worth $33.074 million.
Thanks to some nifty reporting from both Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press [...]
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 [...]
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, [...]
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 [...]
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, [...]
(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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
(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 [...]
