No matter how many times the teenage son took dad’s car and broke something drag racing on the back roads, there usually comes a point where the dad forgives the son, and they can not only stand in the same house but also move to that stage where they kick back in front of a football game and talk about old times.
Maybe that’s what Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy is thinking about.
With the saga surrounding once-golden boy Brett Favre now several years in the past, Murphy says the Packers are looking to patch things up with their team’s biggest hero.
“We want to have [Favre] back in the family,” Murphy told FOXSportsWisconsin this week.
Murphy referenced current Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Favre making good as “a great first step.” The two presented together during the NFL Honors show in February.
“We’re hopeful to have [Favre] back in the fold and get him back involved in the organization soon,” Murphy said.
Murphy also said retiring Favre’s jersey “will happen” soon

On Monday night, at a special event at a place most football fans have never stepped foot in before, the Minnesota Vikings took to the Wurtele Thrust Stage at the Guthrie Theater to unveil the design for their new stadium.

An upcoming reality show tentatively entitled "Cheeseheads" will center around the presumably madcap antics of a group of Packers fans in Green Bay.
Opening the roof over the new home of the Minnesota Vikings would have forced planners of the $975 million project to eliminate some of the fancy features. So the team, the public agency in charge of the stadium and the architects designing it literally saw the light. The yet-to-be-named multipurpose facility will have a translucent roof and moveable front windows. Bryan Trubey,...
Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb told the Green Bay Press-Gazette that he’s ready to step up now that Greg Jennings and Donald Driver are no long around. “I think definitely with Donald retiring and Greg leaving, it’s definitely going to be a lot more weight on me, James and Jordy’s shoulders,” Cobb said. “But we’re taking on the challenge head-on. We’ve been really...
The Minnesota Vikings have every reason to be happy about the future. They have the best running back in the NFL in Adrian Peterson, an up and coming quarterback in Christian Ponder leading a dangerous offense, new uniforms, and come 2016 a brand-spanking new stadium (finally)!

In my recent perusal of the internet for some Green Bay Packers news in the offseason, I came across an article at Football Outsiders by editor-in-chief Aaron Schatz. “Broken Tackles 2012: Defense” focuses on the best and worst defensive players when it came to broken tackles last season. Those of us who regularly follow the Packers know that tackling was a big point of interest...
Depth is important. Whether we like it or not, injuries happen — and when they do somebody needs to step up, because NFL opponents offer no quarter and every game is important.
