Has your Panic Attack Ended?

The sky turns grey in Green Bay after a Packers loss and the clouds appear as though they are close enough to the parking lot at Kroll’s West that you can touch them. It’s an oddity of science that no one can figure out. It seems to happen every NFL season between one to four … Continue reading »

5-0!

We are a spoiled lot in Packerland. Undefeated after five weeks of the 2016/2016 NFL season and it feels like nothing more than the proverbial fart in the wind around here… I guess that’s what goes with expectations. So what have we learned? Defense is a nice surprise: CM3 could be looking at defensive player … Continue reading »

2 Weeks In…

So we’re two weeks into the 2015 NFL season and everyone in Pac.kerland is excited. 2-0 looks good doesn’t it? James Jones looks like the perfect fit doesn’t he? Other teams with high expectations are crumbling. Andrew appears out of Luck. Nothing is a Brees for Drew and it’s another snake bite for Romo as … Continue reading »

Lost Piece Found

It was hard not to hear the Counting Crows in my head on Sunday. “Mr. Jones and … fairy tales..” I rest my case. Two past posts called  for veteran leadership and just when the Green Bay Packers were in danger of leaning all their weight on youth, an ol’ vet shows up to save … Continue reading »

It’s Still Missing

I have learned not to panic. Not only am I getting too old for such nonsense but that’s the power of Ted Thompson. The “In Ted we Trust” mantra continues in Green Bay and how can it not? The team was in the NFC Championship game last year and basically had it won if not … Continue reading »

The Thing That’s Missing …

There seems to be something missing – still. As the Packers approach the upcoming season, we are each intriqued by what’s to come. It feels like it’s their year. It feels right that the first team to win the big game known as the Super Bowl would win the big game on it’s 50th anniversary. … Continue reading »

Formalities Aside

  Can we just stop it already? You’ll hear me say this many times over the course of the blog: My journalism professors always taught us to never start a piece of writing with a question. It’s cheap. It’s lazy. It’s an easy way in. Sure, okay, but sometimes it’s absolutely necessary. So my easy … Continue reading »

Preseason: Game 1

You can’t tell much from these preseason games. Over the years the games have become watered down by game plans that clearly don’t represent a true approach to what teams are thinking of doing as far as scheme and play calling. Essentially preseason NFL has morphed into adult sandlot ball. And that’s okay. It gives … Continue reading »

Fantasy Football Tips Anyone?

So we’re a little behind the times. We have never joined a league, been to a “draft” or scoured the waiver wire for a late-season pick up that could put us in championship position. We’ve never played Fantasy Football. It seems so unlikely doesn’t it? I mean with our insane passion for football and everything, … Continue reading »

Forever September

Training Camp starts next week, this event used to signal the end of summer, but did we ever really have a summer to begin with? My wife said to me the other day: “I can’t wait for football!” (Can you tell we are a match?) I said: “You’re not kidding! I wish we could fast … Continue reading »
