One of the throughlines of Peyton Manning's retirement speech was "timing", and GM's like Ted Thompson could benefit from that call. Free agency is here and Packers fans are looking for something...anything to happen this time around. But there is a sweet spot in free agency and while it is often not waiting until every good player is gone, it also is not usually found in jumping on the first tier of free agents either. There is one bargaining skill that Ted Thompson apparently has in spades...and it is an important one. But sometimes you can have too much of…

The Brett Favre/Peyton Manning rivalry could never be the kind of headliner that Manning versus Brady is, but way back in '04...Favre and Manning put on a clinic. With the impending retirement announcement by Peyton Manning coming in a couple hours, I thought I would flash back to an offensive showing that saw two of history's best head to head.

I am sick to my stomach, this loss is unacceptable on so many levels it's not funny. The offensive play calling was horrible in the second half and the execution looked more like a team of high school players. Davante Adams should be put on the bench until he learns how to catch. When is McCarthy going to use Janis? The kid is a play-maker and they are wasting his abilities sitting on the bench. I have said this many times and I'm tired of hearing "He is not ready"... BS! It looks to me like Adams is the one…
