One of the most controversial figures on the Packers' coaching staff is Dom Capers. There are times when he is great and he pretty much has a gold jacket waiting for him down the road. But there are those in PackerNation who want a new defensive coordinator, there can be no doubt about that.¬† (more…)

Really, Really Cold in the Windy City

  11 months ago     221 Views     1 Comment  

With air temps hovering around zero and wind chills possibly in the minus 20 range, the Packers versus Bears game this time around may take on a different tone than the Packers/Seahawks cold weather game last Sunday. If the wind is a factor, will the Packers be able to compensate with the run game? Aaron Rodgers is already dinged up, though the reports on the calf are promising¬†, and will likely be more limited than he was against the Seahawks. The Packers will still need him to deliver the ball to a receiving group that may be without Jared Cook…

Facing the Realities of the Stretch: The Game That Will Define the Packers

The Packers, even after a seemingly endless November skid, still find themselves in the playoff hunt. Largely by virtue of the weakness of the NFC North, a win against the Philadelphia Eagles Monday night gives PackerNation hope that all is not lost. With Aaron Rodgers at the top of his game (hamstring issue not withstanding) and a defense that, though ugly at times, held the Eagles to just 13 points, people must be positive about the chance to get back to Lambeau and hopefully put together a string of wins. The Texans stand in the way in the short run…

The year was 2003. Brett Favre was the starting quarterback for the Packers and the Packers were on the fast track to packing their cleats up for another season. Then... The first of two plays that will always rank among the most exciting in my history with the Packers happened. I was sitting alone in my living room, slumped into my chair and watching the game (as usual). The Packers defense was dominating the Denver Broncos and Brett was slinging the rock as well as ever. But, it didn't matter. The Packers needed a win but they also needed the…

OBASPM: Walkin’…Talkin’ About the Michael Signing

  1 year ago     192 Views     Leave your thoughts  

Everybody had been asking me if the Packers should sign Christine Michael after the Seahawks no longer wanted him. My response was always "Do you really think TT will sign him?" So to me it was kind of a non-starter. Then, lo and behold...Thompson does sign Michael (and the Vikings wanted him too) so now we have another option at running back that might develop into an important piece down the stretch. I'm not saying that Michael is going to be the be-all, end-all of the Packers' offense. But December at Lambeau requires that the team can run the ball…
