End of the Road for Packers Jordy Nelson

By now everyone has heard that the Packers put Jordy Nelson out to pasture. I knew this day was coming, so I can’t say I’m surprised. Needless to say, it still smarts.

Packers’ Van Pelt Among the Fired

The firings continue at Lambeau Field, and now it’s the offensive side of things that is getting the pink slips. Along with longtime coach Edgar Bennett, it appears that quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt is among those that were let go yesterday. This means Aaron Rodgers will be working with yet again another quarterback whisperer. […]
