FOX is putting a lot on the line with its reboot of the X Files. In an attempt to guarantee success they have scheduled the first episode of the relaunch for January 24th, right after the NFC Championship game. Hopefully, this will be a big boon for Packers fans who are also fans of the X Files. A win by the Pack and the return of an old favorite could make for quite an entertaining night. (more…)

In the fourth round Thompson addressed the ILB position with Jake Ryan, OLB/ILB, from Michigan, Ryan played outside his first few years but switched over to the inside his senior year, in 12 games, making 12 starts he recorded 112 tackles, 14 TFLs, two sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception. the analyst say his weakness is he over-attacks and gets taken out of plays but I like that aggression as it brings a killer mentality to the middle of the field, will he make an impact this year? Only time will tell, he has to beat out last years…

Most of the Packers blogosphere, fans, and the national news media expect this to be the last we hear of the kid (as far as regular season gameplay) until he is traded or moves on. The timeline is not quite right for Hundley to be a successor to Aaron Rogers and the kid has way too much still to prove.

This is high praise and from what I have seen, not unwarranted though it remains to be seen how Montgomery develops at the next level, where the windows are smaller, the angles are tighter, and daylight is at a prison-population premium.  (more…)
