The prospect of moving forward without his favorite man crush was too much for John Madden to contemplate or bear and he decided that a football world without Brett Favre is a world he would rather not be a part of as he announced his retirement today.Speculation had run rampant this off-season as to which QB would become Madden’s newest fan-boy obsession, but it’s clear that Madden was unable...

The Packers cleaned house today, firing six coaches. It's no surprise that Defensive Coordinator Bob Sanders was out the door - his firing was assumed weeks ago. The most ridiculous firing was that of strength and conditioning coach Rock Gullickson.Gullickson was voted by his peers to be one of the best in the business last year, but apparently his failure to buff-up our team is what led to our do...

Stop me if you've heard this one before...The Packers dominate a game, both in points and possession, fail to score all the points they should, have a fourth quarter lead and fail to bring home a victory. I believe yesterday was the sixth loss of four points or less on the season. Had the Packers won just half those games - or really, even just a third - the NFC North playoff picture would look co...

I haven't been blogging on the Packers much lately because I've been struggling to find something - anything - to say about the disappointment this team has levied on their fans, but thus far I've come up empty. Tallying 16 more minutes of possession than your opponent and not coming up with the win? There's no explanation for that. Not that there's been any forthcoming from Ted Thompson and Mike ...

  Having learned nothing from jumping the gun on Ryan Grant, the Packers have extended Aaron Rodgers' contract for 6 years. Look - he's been pretty damn good so far, and I'm totally grateful for that. But he still hasn't proved he isn't the Packers equivalent of Ben Sheets "The Man of Glass." It's great that Rodgers has been playing through the pain - but still. It's been 7 games. I'd love to se...

I haven't been covering the Pack much here because all my Packer mojo has been going into columns for RealGM. This is the RealGM Packers team page and if you bookmark that and go back 2x a week you'll find a column on Monday or Tuesday recapping some portion of the previous weekend's game and Thursday or so you'll find a preview of the upcoming weekend's game. So far, so good - I...

Six years too late, but Matt Millen has been removed as team president and CEO of the Detroit Lions.Someone missing the 31-84 record the Lions have amassed during this reign of terror, Millen's wife apparently told her husband that he's now out of "football prison."FoxSports.com reported the story yesterday, but it hadn't been confirmed. That being said, one of their supporting details was the lar...

SI.com saysAaron Rodgerslooked solid in his preseason debut. The game plan called for several quick slants and out routes, and Rodgers made the throws. He also connected on a few strong third down passes; two to Donald Driver particularly stood out.   ... they also noted: Wideout James Jones had a great night, and not just because of his sensational touchdown. I mean, did anyone else notice how ...
