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 Kübler-Ross introduced a model mapping the stages of human grief.  The discrete five-stage model, which shows the transition from denial to acceptance, may shed some light on how the Steelers are approaching this Week 15 match-up.

Knowing as little about the AFC as I do, I checked in earlier this week with a friend of mine, Aviel, who is as hardcore a fan of the Steelers as I am of the Packers. More so, in fact, since she went to the 2009 Pittsburgh Steelers Women's Training Camp (dear Packers, please have one of these).  I expect that I'll pick her brain when the Steelers-Packers game approaches, but this week, she offered an AFC North insider's look at the Baltimore Ravens.

So, basically, I decided that my normal stats overview wouldn’t be enough for this game.  If this is a show-me game for the Packers, I ought to put in my best effort as well.  Through the lens of Football Outsiders, the matchup is a unique one for the Packers on both sides of the ball.  Instead of taking you to FO, I’ve decided to bring the stats to you.  I warn you that this post is not for the faint of heart – if you are anti-math, I understand if you don’t read further.  Numbers, ahoy!

Welcome to another edition of Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the Packers primetime opponent, the Baltimore Ravens.  Aaron and Corey covered a lot of ground during last night’s interviews with Ravens experts Chris Pika and John Eisenberg, so make sure you watch the show first.  As an NFC-oriented fan, the AFC has always seemed a little strange to me, so figuring out this matchup has been an adventure.  Without further ado, let’s dive in to Week 13.

Welcome to Opposition Research, where I'll be taking a look at the next Packers opponent, the Cleveland Browns (1-5).  This week I'm coming to you from deep within enemy territory, and while the talk has been more about babies than blocking schemes, I’ll see if I can’t give you some insight into the team we’ll be facing on Sunday afternoon.

It’s been a weird couple days in the NFL.  Here are a few stories that are making the rounds, each of them a head-scratcher: Rookie WR Michael Crabtree, after spending significant time away from San Francisco, finally signed a six-year contract with the 49ers.  If he has two outstanding years in his first four, the contract evolves into a five-year deal.  The weird part of all this?  M.C. Hammer was apparently present during negotiations.  Yes, really, that M.C. Hammer.

That's right... I think they got a Bobble because I was making these during Training Camp and we played them last season in pre-season...
