PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Packers Fantasy Primer

The Green Bay Packers have been among the best offenses in football for the last decade.  In 2007, Mike McCarthy’s second season as head coach of the Packers, he helped resurrect the (pretty awful) late stages of Brett Favre’s career.  Favre had an 82-67 TD/INT ratio from 2003-05 and the Packers had just finished 16th […]
