For two years, Breno Giacomini has been the great enigma of the Packers. Reportedly high on upside, he has managed to make the team out of camp the past two seasons, contributing nothing on the field in the process.
Yeah, I know I've been gone a couple of days. So for the two people that actually come here I apologize. Anyway, here's some frickin' Green Bay Packers news and some other stuff. Think I'll go Sesame Street.
What exactly do you ask from the Packers players in return as a fan? I posed that question this morning concerning Greg Jennings, and the uproar was mighty and mighty divided. What's your asking price?
There seems to be such a large amount of Ted hate going on that I needed to step back and analyze my stance. In order to do so, I had to take a look at several GM's across the league. After looking at the track record of Colt's GM Bill Polian, I have to agree that Ted Thompson still has a lot to learn.
The case involving Pat and Kevin Williams may end up being one of the most significant sports law cases in recent memory. While the NFL may have won the short term battle, the NFL maybe positioned for a long term war of having to navigate a patchwork of state labor laws. This article looks at what might become an issue for the NFL’s substance abuse policy come November.
I pride myself on my ability to recognize Packers players. I can almost always look at the player's face and know who they are. If my facial recognition fails me, the jersey number is always a dead giveaway.
I was about two seconds away from hanging it up for good this weekend. No fan fare, no hype, no childish pleas for assistance. I was going to silently walk away. Instead, I have decided to make a lateral move of sorts and turn the page over to the Packer fans it was always meant for.
Making its 2010 return is my Packers pre-season edition of the Suck List. There is no statistical analysis, no fancy flowcharts, and the list is completely arbitrary and uniformed. As a fan sometimes you like guys, and sometimes you don't. If you're a homer, this is not the place for you.
I hate to theorize on anything if I can avoid it. But, with all the 'let's find a hole in the draft and complain about it' homers roaming around, I think the educated Packer fan has overlooked perhaps the biggest need of all...
It's very rare that I have anything bad to say about the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Packer coverage. In fact, I think Greg Bedard is perhaps the finest Packer reporter I have ever read. There are some apparently who need to take a cue from Bedard, because articles like this one leave me scratching my head while wondering, where do I apply?
In the quest for the Superbowl, one of the hardest facts to overcome is that a Superbowl team cannot afford to pay all their players, all that they deserve. It makes sense; the salary cap (assuming it comes back) requires teams to create separation while expending equal resources. A team will not create separation if they disproportionally spend resources on a player or position that is not schemed to be a playmaker.
I don't have a monster breakdown of this weekends draft. I thought it was boring but solid. However, here are some options to get caught up on all the action, and as always, some other interesting tid-bits.
Hi, Lounge. There was been a considerable amount of bargaining as to what the Green Bay could have done in the first round. Alex argued that Bryan Bulaga may have not been the impact playmaker Green Bay had hoped for at no. 23.
For years I have been trying to figure out Ted Thompson and his draft strategy. I was so unexcited with the picks in rounds two and three yesterday that I had to really do some thinking. After a good night of rest, I think I have it figured out. He's using my buddy Chris' Madden strategy.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
