The Week in Review at Packers Talk Radio Network

Packers Talk Radio Network

This past week at Packers Talk Radio Network:

 

Matt wrote about the unfortunate luck the Packers have had regarding neck injuries over the past 20 plus years.

Ian wonders whether we should buy into the hype surrounding rookie TE Richard Rodgers.

Ian also power ranked the Packers QBs. I bet everyone can guess who is at the top.

John shared a great video that is guaranteed to get everyone psyched for the upcoming season.

Richard continued the player profile series for our sponsor Mayfield Sports Marketing with a look at TE Andrew Quarless.

 

Be sure to stop by AllGBP.com and check out this week’s edition of Surviving Sunday: Packers News, Notes and Links for the Football Deprived. It is a must read every Sunday during the far too long NFL offseason (which is almost over, thank goodness).

We hope everyone had a great 4th of July holiday. To put an exclamation point on the holiday weekend, we need to borrow a few photos from Ross’ Football Friday article from this past week.

Green Bay Packers Midweek Movie: “Mission: L.O.M.B.A.R.D.I.”

During this dead time of the NFL calendar, it can be very difficult to get excited about the upcoming season.

Optimism about the upcoming season is high, but the reality is there is little to discuss about what the season brings until Training Camp begins.

Coaches and players use this time to enjoy their final days of time off before the grind of training camp. If there is any news about the Green Bay Packers it is viewed as a blessing during what is basically a non news period.

Have no fear-Packers Talk Radio Network is here to help you get excited about the 2014 NFL season.

Dale H. Decker returns with his latest Packers themed video, and the message is simple. The goal for 2014 is “Mission Lombardi”.

Take a few minutes and watch this excellent video. After viewing it, leave a GO PACK GO! in the comments to let everyone know you are ready for the 2014 season.

Enjoy!

20 Questions About the 2014 Green Bay Packers

green bay packers helmets

This is the worst time of the year for Green Bay Packers fans.

The return of football is so close. So very, very close. Less than a month away until the team takes the field for Training Camp at Nitschke Field. Yet it seems so far away.

Time just seems to stand still during this dead time of the football calendar year. Every day is one day closer to football, but it sure does not seem like it.

Because the days seem to go slower during these dog days of Summer, this allows for ample time to think about the upcoming season, and ask plenty of questions about it.

Why spend time asking questions about the season? Because they need to be asked. As much as everyone may want to believe that the Packers are prepared to go undefeated, scoring an infinite number of points while allowing zero in the process, and culminating in a Super Bowl victory, this is just not the case. The Packers have on paper made improvements, but there are still plenty of questions surrounding this team.

Optimism is high, but it does not mean that the questions should not be asked.

Here are just a few of the questions that I have thought about in the past week about the 2014 Packers:

 

  • Will Eddie Lacy continue to be a force on offense, or will a healthy Aaron Rodgers shift the focus on offense back to the passing game?

A Meeting Between Bart Starr, Brett Favre, and Aaron Rodgers Needs to Happen ASAP

starr favre rodgers

Their stats speak for themselves.

Seven NFL titles. Five MVP awards. Three Super Bowl MVP awards. Countless individual NFL and team records.

Bart Starr. Brett Favre. Aaron Rodgers. All Green Bay Packers quarterbacks. Arguably the greatest trio to ever play the position.

According to Aaron Rodgers, the time has come for this Mt. Rushmore of quarterbacks to sit down and talk about their experiences.

Speaking with Rob Demovsky of ESPN, Rodgers recently remarked that it is time for the three of them to all get together and share their knowledge with each other. Oh, to be a fly on the wall and hear the stories that these three would discuss between themselves.

Perhaps more importantly, this meeting of the minds could also serve as a bridge for Favre to return to the Packers organization without potential backlash from those still bitter about his playing for the rival Vikings after leaving Green Bay.

Rodgers addressed this possibility as well:

 

“I’ve always thought it would be fun to do something, the three of us, some sort of sit down where we could all talk about our experiences. I’m sure that’s three interesting perspectives on this place and the appreciation for it. But Bart’s been a great mentor and a great guy. It was a blast to win his award, and I think Brett’s ready to be welcomed back the way he deserves to be welcomed back, and that will be exciting.”

Not Even Post Career Health Battles Could Make Jim McMahon Un-Punky

jim mcmahon

The name Jim McMahon has been part of my life since I was a kid.

He was the punky QB in Chicago. The face (or at least persona) of the Chicago Bears. The field leader of arguably the best NFL team ever assembled-the 1985 Bears. And McMahon was their leader.

I was 10 when he was headband wearing, spiky haired, mooning the helicopter at the Super Bowl quarterback for the Packers’ arch rival.

Flash forward a decade, and McMahon was still punky, only on a smaller scale. No longer a starting quarterback, age and injuries had relegated him to a backup to the Packers’ own free spirited gunslinger. But he still wore the sunglasses, still had that spiky hair, and still had that McMahon-esque presence.

Jim McMahon has been part of my life as a sports fan for nearly 30 years now. One mention of his name, and the memories about him from years ago come rushing back. He will always be a reminder of youth.

To read about his personal battles after his playing career ended is something which makes me incredibly sad.

Hearing that he is battling dementia is a tough enough pill to swallow. You never want to hear about anyone having to suffer through this, let alone someone that has been part of your life for most of yours. I could not imagine what it would be like to not remember things which have taken place in my own life. I hope I never have to.
