The playoffs are still in reach for the Packers. I know you probably don’t want to hear this after the complete and embarrassing beating that the Packers took on Thanksgiving Day, but I feel like I need to talk some Packers fans off the ledge. I really do believe they still have a shot. It’s a somewhat legitimate shot also. Granted, we don’t control our own destiny anymore but I think it’s possible. I’m not going to get in to the Packers 2010 season or the Giants 2011 season where both of those teams’ seasons looked over but they got hot, made the playoffs, and won the Super Bowl. I think it’s silly to compare seasons in that way. Every year and every roster is different and just because something happened in the past is no guarantee of the future. I want to look at this year and what’s ahead. Continue reading
This a little old but I came across it again and thought I would share because it is still funny.
This is hysterical Wisconsin, according to Jeff Foxworthy: Continue reading
Recently on Facebook I was accused of not being a “TRUE Packers Fan.” Which is absolutely ridiculous because anyone who knows me in the real world or follows me on Twitter knows that I bleed green and gold. My happiness throughout the week depends heavily on the results of the Packers game the previous weekend. You’re on my Packers blog for God’s sake! Continue reading
As a public service to all the fantasy football players out there, I have been compiling a Twitter list of all of the fantasy football experts out there. Use this list to help you make all of your lineup, waiver wire, and draft decisions.
Most of these guys are really helpful and will answer your lineup questions if you tweet to them.
Follow their tweets below or feel free to subscribe to the twitter list I made. I am always adding more people to this list and I hope it becomes one of the more comprehensive lists out there. Continue reading
This week all been hearing the debate in Packer Nation about how good Aaron Rodgers is in close games. He has an official record of 5-24 in these games. This article on ESPN.com written by Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) is the latest story to bring up the subject. This is something that everyone’s favorite talking head, Skip Bayless, has been saying for at least a year and probably longer than that. Over that time Packer Nation would all agree that Skip is talking out of his @$$, looking for shock value, or is plain stupid. After the Packers lost to the Bengals in the Week 3 matchup, however, I have seen many Packers fans also using this argument. These people are agreeing with Skip Bayless! I have found myself defending Aaron Rodgers’s greatness from OTHER PACKERS FANS!!! I can’t believe Skip’s ideas have begun to take root in Packer Nation. Continue reading
Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garçon was recently in the Green Bay headlines for an interesting comment about the fans loudness at games. He claimed that “FedEx Field is louder.” (His comments got even more interesting when I saw a Deadspin article wondering if FedEx Field was pumping in crowd noise.) I found this comment particularly interesting because over the last year or two I have had similar thoughts about the loudness of the fans at Lambeau Field and their ability and/or willingness to stay involved in the game.
Let me explain. Continue reading
Every year during the baseball season, fans are often in the line of fire then a foul ball heads for the stands or when a bat slips from the grip of the batter. This is bound to happen and is often thought of as a great part of the game since a lucky fan gets to go home with a piece of game used memorabilia.
Sometimes, the internet gets lucky when a well positioned game photographer with impecable timing presents us with a gift of comedy. Yes, it’s the derping fan shot! I needed to make a small collection of some of my favorites and put them all in one spot.
So here they are, in no particular order. Continue reading
We won! We lost… We’re awesome! We suck…
When talking about their favorite sports team, fans often refer to the team as “we.” This often draws scrutiny and ridicule from non-sports fans and even other sports fans. They often back up their criticisms with the popular argument, “were you on the field? No. So why are you saying we?” It is my opinion that fans have every right to refer to their team as “we” for four reasons. Continue reading
I have a survey for Packers fans about foam cheeseheads hats worn by Packers fans. When I travel to see the Packers play away games I seem to see a higher percentage of Packers fans wearing cheeseheads than I do in Green Bay. Other fan bases around the NFL are under the impression that people from Wisconsin always watch football while wearing foam cheese. I live in Wisconsin and everybody I know who also lives here thinks they are kind of dumb, corny, and even, dare I say, cheesy. Continue reading
Many think that Packers shareholders aren’t really owners of the team. It is often said that Packers ownership is silly because you don’t get any of the benefits that owners of other teams enjoy like private sky boxes, free tickets to games, etc. I think comparing ownership of the Packers and ownership of other NFL franchises is like comparing apples to oranges.
