Why Tanking is Not in Packers’ DNA

Buzzwords are the core of sports journalism nowadays. Networks use them, sports “analysts” use them – even fanbases are now accepting them  There is one word that should never be involved in the same sentence involving the Green Bay Packers.

Packers, Just Win a Game Already.

Well…this is new. In the 100 seasons that the Green Bay Packers have been a franchise, never have they fired a head coach midseason until last Sunday after the worst home loss in 20 years. Losing to a 2-9 Cardinals squad who has not won at Lambeau since 1949 when they were…in Chicago! Mike McCarthy […]

Packers: From Playoff Contender to Mediocrity – How Did We Get Here?

Clock is Ticking on Packers’ McCarthy

It’s come to this. The time for excuses is done. The clock has started on the fate of head coach Mike McCarthy. Let me be clear though that I respect McCarthy, his solid winning percentage with a 63% and a decent 10-8 playoff record. I know a few teams that would love to have a […]

Packers Offense Have to Be Optimistic vs 49ers

Rewind back to August. I am drinking my morning coffee on the week before the Packers kick off their 2018 season. My prediction was taking the exit to a Wild Card loss despite a dynamic offense and an improved defense.  Then I thought of my father who says every year that the Packers will go […]
