Holly revels in taking potshots at other NFL teams. As with most commentary that comes from Washington, D.C., snark is liberally applied.
The Eagles get the first crack at the 2010 Packers, and Philly is rarin’ to go. Holly gets you caught up for the road opener.
The Indianapolis Colts are a perennial playoff contender. And as you look closer at the match-up, it’s like looking into a mirror. Holly gets you caught up for tonight’s primetime game.
There wasn’t an NFL coach more excited about the start of preseason than Seattle’s Pete Carroll. Clearly, you should be too. Holly helps you prep for Saturday’s game.
Welcome to the second season of Opposition Research, where I take a look at Packers opponents and give you the inside scoop about who they are and what they’re expecting from a game against Green Bay. The outcome of preseason games may be meaningless, but I’ll try to give you some insight about the team [...]
So, the other day on Twitter, I argued that the Packers seem boring, and that it’s a good thing. My take on it was (and is) simply that while some teams around the league are making a lot of noise in the offseason, it’s nice to cheer for a team that realizes it has most [...]
I realize that, for a blog that’s supposed to cover the other 31 teams, I’ve been silent on the subject of the labor negotiations, the CBA, the implications of an un-capped 2010, and the current draft projections for Jacksonville. Free Agency starts this Friday, and I haven’t said a word. And you know what? You’re [...]
So I’ve slept on it, and here’s what I come away with from yesterday’s games: Colts 30, Jets 17 The Jets ground game was MIA. Yes, they ran the ball alright in the first half, but not nearly well enough to allow any serious play-action in the second. I figured that the only way the [...]
I had only planned on doing a little preview, since I’m not generally a betting woman. However. Now that Aaron’s given you his picks, I can’t let him completely take over my turf without chiming in myself, now can I?
Apologies for the lag time. Work + life + inability to visit an NFL page without reading about how great Warner was against Green Bay = Holly took some time off from football. After watching the weekend’s games, however, I’m left with a few lingering thoughts: 1. The Cowboys-Vikings game reminded me at points of [...]
Before anything else, I just want to say thank you. Thank you for reading, for giving me feedback, and for letting me geek out on football stats without pointing and laughing (overtly, anyway). It’s been a treat.
Welcome to the first playoff edition of Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking stock of the Packers instant-replay wild card opponent, the Arizona Cardinals. Considering that the two teams just played, there isn’t much to add or change from last week’s more standard take on the Cardinals. With the national media descending on the match, [...]
Welcome to another edition of Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the final Packers opponent for the regular season, the Arizona Cardinals. This W17 match-up is unique, since each team has clinched a playoff berth and 6 of 8 scenarios have the two teams battling it out again a week from now. [...]
Welcome to another edition of Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the penultimate Packers opponent for the regular season, the Seattle Seahawks. In light of the holiday season (and the fact that the Seahawks have been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs), news on this match-up has been sparse. But just because the [...]
Welcome to another edition of Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the next Packers opponent, the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers are 10 months removed from a Super Bowl victory, and will be 41 days removed from a regular season victory when the Packers visit Heinz Field on Sunday afternoon. In 1969, Elisabeth [...]
Welcome to another edition of Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the next Packers opponent, the Chicago Bears. To be honest with you, this game feels a little like a high school reunion. Back in W1, we both thought we were cool, we both had primetime QBs and in-your-face defenses, and so [...]
