PFF: Free Agent Primer

I had a chance to stop by the Railbird Central podcast and talk about the Packers controlled free agents.  You can listen to that show with legendary host Brian Carriveau right here.  That is not today’s discussion.  Today’s discussion is to identify which of the Packers current unrestricted free agents can be expected to re-join […]

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: The New Table

They did it.  They ran the table.  Once thought to be dead in the water at 4-6, the Green Bay Packers  have won six straight games and are the Kings in the North once more.  The Rodgers/McCarthy/Thompson Packers have now won five of the last six NFC North championships.  All this in a year that […]

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Finish the Job!

It always seems to come down to this.  Despite the fact that the Packers are looking to win their fifth division championship in six seasons they have not completely dominated the division.  The Packers have had to play in NFC North championship games in 2013 (win), 2014 (win), 2015 (loss) and now in 2016.  They […]

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Settling the Score

Twice, now.  Twice the Packers have played the Vikings consecutively and twice they have lost.  That hasn’t happened since 2009.  That hasn’t happened without Brett Favre as Minnesota’s quarterback since 2005 (!).  This is a series that has gone much better in the Aaron Rodgers era (11-6) than it ever did under Brett Favre (17-16).

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Don’t Slip Up

This game reminds me a bit of the Buffalo game in 2014.  Everything the Packers were trying to accomplish was in front of them, yet they dropped a winnable game in Buffalo against a team that didn’t make a playoffs.  It was late in the year, the weather was cold, and the Packers lost, screwing […]

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Don’t Stop Believin’

What a dark time it was not so long ago.  The internet wolves were out, and they were ravenous.  Fire the coach? Force the General Manager to retire? Trade the quarterback (that was particularly dumb)?  People were looking for answers, anywhere they could find them (or make them up).  The Packers were 4-6, had lost […]

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Season saved?

Oh I definitely remember the last time the Packers played the Texans, and you do too.  It was the “shhhhhhh” game.  Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has made a career of playing with a chip on his shoulder and backing up bold statements.  People remember “shhhhhh”, they remember R-E-L-A-X, will they remember “run the table”? Why […]
