Mac Bros. Fantasy Football Forecast:
We love it when pro athletes don't take themselves too seriously. So obviously we love this Christmas card, complete with cheesy holiday sweaters, from the tight ends of the Green Bay Packers. "I think we originally set out to mess with our position coach, Ben McAdoo," said D.J. Williams. "Then it turned in to a really good Christmas card and we decided to share the Christmas spirit." From left to right in the big picture: Williams, Crabtree, Jermichael Finley, Andrew Quarless and Ryan Taylor.Source: http://www.jsonline.com/blogs/sports/136110518.html Each week The Mac Bros. offer up free fantasy football picks.

I’ve always wondered what professional athletes put on their wish lists for Christmas, especially the ones with a large contract. After all, having millions or even just tens of thousands of dollars at your disposal can pretty much buy you whatever you want. Fortunately, I have managed to put my curiosity to rest this week.
Through some careful reconnaissance work, I was able to...

The Green Bay Packers could very well be without two of their most heavily used defensive lineman against the Chicago Bears, as coach Mike McCarthy ruled out Ryan Pickett and made Mike Neal questionable for Sunday’s game.
Pickett suffered a concussion against the Oakland Raiders in Week 14 and...
We wouldn’t bother to post this, unless it was awesome.
Unlike most NFL teams, who have two or three tight ends, the Green Bay Packers have five. They used to stockpile useless dudes who played fullback, which is more or less an antiquated position in the NFL, but this year, they’ve decided to stockpile those guys at tight end.
The Packers have their stud, Jermichael Finley...
After seeing their chances for a perfect season go awry in Kansas City, the 13-1 Green Bay Packers still have a big goal ahead of them before they end the 2011 NFL regular season. That is…clinching the No. 1 seed in the NFC and getting home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. Trying to achieve that goal starts [...]
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By CHRIS JENKINS AP Sports Writer Now that it's gone, Green Bay Packers players admit they are disappointed they aren't in position to pull off a perfect season.
And they don't seem to put much stock in the theory that a well-timed loss can help a good team focus going into the playoffs.
Still, there's home-field advantage at stake - and,...
The Packers couldn't be more confident that wide receiver Greg Jennings will play in the NFC divisional playoff game the weekend of Jan. 14-15 at Lambeau Field.
When it comes to playing the Chicago Bears, Aaron Rodgers has a pretty good track record. Rodgers is 5-2 in his career against da Bears, and that includes a win in the NFC Championship Game at Soldier Field in Chicago last season. Plus both of his losses against Chicago certainly could have been Green Bay wins, [...]
The Packers' offense went into a funk at Kansas City, with Jordy Nelson and one of the league's top receiver corps unable to pick up the slack. The Packers need more from everyone on offense to beat Chicago on Sunday night.
In theory, the Green Bay Packers' group of receivers is deep and talented enough to make up for the loss of one player - even one as good as Greg Jennings.
The Green Bay Packers miss Greg Jennings. But the Bears sure won’t. Jennings has been the bane of the Bears’ existence the last three seasons. He averaged six receptions for 102 yards with a touchdown and two two-point conversions in the Packers’ five victories over the Bears since 2009. And he’s...
The Bears defense will face a difficult challenge Sunday night in Green Bay against Aaron Rodgers, whos having one of the best seasons by any quarterback in NFL history.
Bears cornerback Tim Jennings, who started the first 14 games, has been benched in favor of Zack Bowman for Sunday night's game against the Packers. The move had been discussed earlier in the week. Bowman is a better cover corner while Jennings is a better tackler. The Bears will need some of both against a potent group of receivers, even without Greg Jennings in the mix. "...
