PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Packers Fantasy Primer

The Green Bay Packers have been among the best offenses in football for the last decade.  In 2007, Mike McCarthy’s second season as head coach of the Packers, he helped resurrect the (pretty awful) late stages of Brett Favre’s career.  Favre had an 82-67 TD/INT ratio from 2003-05 and the Packers had just finished 16th in offensive DVOA.  The only reliable fantasy player Green...

Packers bubble players to watch against Washington

With two weeks before another roster cutdown, fringe players will need to shine. For the Packers, a playoff team with its roster pretty close to set, there may only be a handful of spots available on the 53-man roster and with teams watching Ted Thompson’s transactions like hawks, don’t expect any fan favorite to be an easy addition to the practice squad.

What's the Deal with Ted Thompson?

Green Bay Packers General Manager Ted Thompson spoke on Thursday and every time he does, it leads me to ask: "What's the deal with Ted Thompson?"

The 'Forget Calvin, bring back Jerry' quiz

The wide receiver has become something of a position du jour in the NFL as football further accelerates into a fast-paced, pass-happy, acrobatic spectacle and leaves the hard-nosed, smash-mouth, bruising trenches behind.
