Week 13 has come and gone, and a couple more cadavers were dropped off at the mortuary.The Chiefs were merely a prelude to the slew of departed souls who would be making their way onto my concrete slabs.They've been inevitably tagged and bagged; now it's merely time to examine what caused these wretched souls to fulfill the destiny that their mortal coil demands.Subject: Carolina PanthersDate of Death: December 2, 2012Record at Time of Death: 3-9Contributing Factors to Death1. Too Many Close LossesUnder Aaron Rodgers, the 2008 Green Bay Packers went 6-10, and many of media vultures (read: ESPN) were quick to crow about Brett Favre, and how Green Bay would be 16-0 and world champions had they not alienated the gunslinger.Rodgers had an impressive year (93.8 rating), but Green Bay just lost close games.

Cam Newton Tagged A Diva At Pro Bowl

We played a game Juan? Last season Cam Newton went to the Pro Bowl and pretty much acted a fool with his fellow NFL brethren.  His maturity or lack thereof really rubbed a lot of the players the wrong way. Pete Prisco: “The reason: Newton dissed some of his brethren at the Pro Bowl,” Prisco wrote. “According to several players in the game, some from both teams, Newton’s...

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Is Pretty Excited That The Seahawks Beat The Bears

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers couldn’t be more excited that the Seattle Seahawks rallied back to beat the Chicago Bears 23-17 on Sunday. Considering it was the same Seahawks team that beat the Packers on Monday Night Football earlier this season on a phantom touchdown catch during the replacement referee era. With the Bears loss and the Packers win over the Vikings...

Aaron Rodgers had an incredible game against the Texans, and that was when the Defense was healthy. Do you think Brady can replicate the success he had, especially with all of the Defensive injuries?

Aaron Rodgers Says The Packers Are Still Discussing Hail Mary Loss To Seahawks

Detroit won't be an easy out for the Packers

This Sunday night, the Green Bay Packers host the Detroit Lions in a game that looks far simpler on paper than it will likely play out. The Lions have just four wins under their belt, while the Packers lead the NFC North with an 8-4 record. Having only won the four games, it's somewhat surprising that NFL football odds (click to view) only have the Lions as a one touchdown...

Muy Frio: Matt Ryan

Matt Ryan was on fire for most of the season. He had 17 points or more in 7 out of 8 games this season, including games of 31, 21, 24, 23, and 26. He has been a must start fantasy option until the last 3 weeks, where his production has fallen off big time. In the last 3 games, he has thrown only 2 TDs vs 6 INTs. Ryan is only averaging 9 points per contest which included tilts vs...
