A Point That Needs To Be Made

A Point That Needs To Be Made

I've been reading Packer blog comments and forums and have been muttering the same two words at my screen over and over. It's January.

Just Can\'t Get Excited

Just Can\'t Get Excited

I know special teams can win or lose a game. I know they're important. But nothing about a special teams coach being hired (or promoted) gets my...

Stock \"Retires\"

Stock \"Retires\"

Let's be honest here. Mike Stock did not just up and decide "You know what?

\"That’s Not My Bailiwick\"

\"That’s Not My Bailiwick\"

That would be Ted Thompson's response to Pete Dougherty's question regarding any potential changes on the coaching staff.

Being named to the Pro Bowl was the trigger in Albert Haynesworth's contract that ensures he will be a free agent this off season. Let the games...

Great post from Andy over at PackerGeeks.

I Don\'t See It

I Don\'t See It

Everywhere you turn in the Packer Blogosphere and even in the accredited media you find pieces about the Packers playoff chances, complete with examinations of the Packers schedule and how it compares with the Vikings and Bears, who they all play when, what might happen to the Williams brothers, etc, etc. Sorry, but I just don't see it. I understand newspapers have a vested interest in keeping hope alive, but my fellow bloggers really need to take off the Green and Gold glasses. This team is not going to the playoffs, and if, by some miracle, it happened to find it's way in, it would be embarrassed on a national stage once again. They have simply run out of competent players on the defensive line to mask Bob Sanders gross incompetence. It's that simple, really. Last year, the defensive line was stacked with quality players and hid the fact that Sanders had zero imagination or ability to adjust his scheme, at least not until the end of the season when injuries had taken their toll and you saw the cracks start to show.

In Praise of Bob Sanders

Yes, it pains me to write it, but Bob Sanders deserves a ton of credit for how he implemented and called the Packers defensive gameplan yesterday.

Maybe it was the morning commute (which was horrible), or maybe I'm just in a bad mood (which I am.)

Thompson Blows It

The Packers and Ted Thompson fell short in their bid to trade for tight end Tony Gonzalez.

Intensity for Frost

I was as dumbfounded as PackerGeeks Andy and Steve that Derrick Frost was still on the roster Monday.
