It’s cold in Green Bay, as you may have heard. But from the press box, the surroundings don’t look so bad. (Photo via Matt Barrows on Instagram): But after taking a look at the photo below … let’s just say we should all be really glad we didn’t plan a trip to Green Bay to […]
The Green Bay Packers frequently went with a no-huddle offense in Week 1, and results were mixed. They scored 28 points, but they only held the ball for 21:25 and their longest drive lasted less than three minutes. The Packers’ defense is 24th in points allowed and 25th in yards allowed, so it would stand […]
Anquan Boldin won the Bill Walsh Award, which is voted on by the San Francisco 49ers as their version of a team MVP (although Jim Harbaugh made it clear that the team has two MVP awards, the Walsh Award and the Len Eshmont Award, which went to NaVorro Bowman). Boldin said today that he was […]
Yesterday Greg Roman said the Green Bay Packers were “almost like a Division opponent.” It’s easy to see why, as they’re getting set to play each other for the second time in the same season for the second consecutive year. Division rivals are like siblings in that they fight all the time, except they don’t love each […]
Jim Harbaugh has been even more tight-lipped than usual this week, but he dropped one of his best quotes since saying he was “happier than a pig in slop” the day after NaVorro Bowman’s pick-6 sealed the win over Atlanta on Harbaugh’s birthday. On New Year’s Day, Harbaugh was asked about Anquan Boldin. “I love […]
Have the Green Bay Packers sold out Sunday’s playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers yet? No. According to Don Walker of the Journal Sentinel, there were still about 3,000 tickets available as of 4 pm central time. Doesn’t that mean the deadline has passed and the game will be blacked out? The deadline was […]
One of the many funny things about the NFL, besides the constant rule changes and so-called commitment to safety, is how certain franchises think they hold the patent on “real football” and “real football fans.” No two organizations trumpet their own realness more than the Pittsburgh Steelers (who didn’t make the playoffs) and the Green […]
Besides Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews is the most famous, decorated and well-paid member of the Green Bay Packers. As such, his absence makes headlines. But does losing Matthews really impact the Packers’ defense? Matthews missed four games in 2012 with a hamstring injury. I went back and looked at how Green Bay fared both with […]
