Really, Really Cold in the Windy City

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…

The Packers have won back to back games now each one increasingly getting more and more challenging. The Eagles in Philly was followed by the Texans at Lambeau, and the next game will continue that trend.  The Seahawks have eight wins under their belts and have played some really good ball...better than either the Eagles or the Texans. Still, they showed some serious chinks in their armor when they took on the up and coming Buccaneers, and the Packers are in a great position to penetrate those chinks with some deadly blows.  (more…)

The Packers, even after a seemingly endless November skid, still find themselves in the playoff hunt.

The Texans stand in the way in the short run…

When I saw Davante Adams playing his first season his rookie year, I was extremely excited. The guy had all the measurables you look for in a wide receiver and he made some outstanding plays. Then he hit a slump. Suddenly, Adams was dropping just about everything that was thrown his way. Worse than that, he just looked like he had lost all confidence in himself. We kept waiting for him to get out of his slump, but he never seem to get there. Until now. (more…)

It’s Not Over ‘Til It’s Over

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…
