Quickslant: BJ’s Best Camp?

  3 years ago     55 Views     1 Comment  

A lot of Packers fans were not high on BJ Raji this offseason, stating that he did little or nothing during the season to make the case that he should be re-signed. The thinking was that he would cost too much, had done little, and that there would be a replacement available when the Packers picked in the first round. I was NOT one of those people even though I too was a bit disappointed in BJ's performance. When news of the contract came out, I was happier still because one year for 4 million with $500,000 guaranteed was much…

The next time you're sitting down to dunk that Bavarian creme filled long-john into your morning cuppa while you watch ESPN or NFL Network, take note of how often you hear any Packers news. If you hear any at all, it will probably be about Aaron Rodgers and hey, that makes sense. What doesn't make sense is how little we hear about the Packers wide receiver corps or our Rookie of the Year winning running back who is just now seeing the game "slow down" for him...pretty exciting.

Matt Flynn is for real. And now the entire league knows it. After getting off to a rocky start against the Lions, Flynn rebounded with six touchdowns and 480 yards passing.

In case you haven't heard this anywhere else this week: the Lions haven't won at Lambeau Field since 1991. Unfortunately for Packers fans, Sunday figures to be an excellent opportunity for Detroit to snap that skid. For the Lions, there is a sizable difference between entering the playoffs as the NFC's 5-seed versus the 6-seed. The latter means that, in all likelihood, the Lions will be traveling to New Orleans for the first round of the playoffs, the location where Drew Brees shredded the Detroit secondary en route to a 31-17 Saints victory. To avoid a trip to the Superdome,…

What We Learned Against the Bears

Aaron Rodgers must be considered the league's most valuable player this season. Rodgers threw five touchdowns behind a makeshift offensive line against the Bears and added a passer rating of 142.7 to his record-setting composite. Give me another quarterback who can put up that type of performance against a respected Bears defense under the same circumstances. It's true that he has a lot around him, but Rodgers has still been the outright best player in the NFL this season. (more…)
