This week in the NFL we were treated to some Thanksgiving drama and some good upsets.
Going on my eyeball test, here are my Conference Top 5 power rankings this week.
The Baltimore Ravens made the cut…but they still need to find a way to get Ray Rice the ball more.
NFC Top 5
5. Green Bay Packers
Two weeks ago I had my Seahawks here and how did they repay me? By laying an egg in Miami. So goodbye Seahawks. I almost put the Giants in this spot, and I went against my better judgment in not doing that.
Now, I don’t always think the team that wins in a head-to-head matchup is the better team, but in this instance, they are. So I have the Packers at #5 this week, with the Giants a few spots higher.
Aaron Rodgers is amazing, but that offensive line is awful. Injuries have decimated the team, and Rodgers had NO time to throw Sunday night. The Giants’ front 4 dominated the line of scrimmage, and the secondary played well in coverage, thus rendering Rodgers moot. Even an exceptional passer l...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Don't expect to see Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers still sporting a thick moustache Sunday, on his 29th birthday, when he takes the field to face the Minnesota Vikings.
Rodgers, who has been growing a moustache all month to help raise awareness of prostate cancer as part of Movember, plans to shave it as soon as the calendar turns to December.
We love that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers can get into the spirit of Movember and rock a powerful mustache for the whole world to see when he took on the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football. What we didn’t expect was for Rodgers to give the viewing audience at home a little taste of Zoolander’s famous Blue Steel.
Of course Movember is when you will see men wear awkward...
In a surprise move of the 2012 NFL season, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has finally come to terms with his own body and made a sports-media shattering announcement. He has finally come out of the blanket and revealed himself to be a 5 year old boy, which actually explains a whole lot.
"I just felt it was time," he said while eating a Pop Tart at a recent...
Hot News for QB Aaron Rodgers
This is not a report card that Packers' players will want to post on their refrigerators as an example of work well done. No, this is the type that gets hidden in backpacks for as long as possible with the hope that, if enough time passes, it can just be forgotten about.

Mike McCarthy Admits Mistakes
As I sat in MetLife Stadium and watched the NY Giants dismantle the Packers before my eyes, my neck started to hurt from shaking my head so much. Beyond the disappointing play and the result, I was especially not pleased by what I saw of the Packers game plan, play calling and decision-making.
Coach McCarthy went away from the running game after the...
The Packers took a beating on Sunday night but their NFC North hopes are firmly within their grasp. "Sometimes it takes a loss" to focus on the areas that need improvement, Aaron Rodgers said.
The Falcons backfield is now a committee and Michael Turner will share the rock with Jacquizz Rodgers going forward.
It took eleven games. It took multiple games where Michael Turner averaged less than two yards a carry and it took the finest game of young Jacquizz Rodgers' career. What matters is that the moment a majority of fans, analysts and sentient rocks have been calling...
The Packers have built a sterling record since the start of 2011, but in their losses can be found the key to beating them. See how the Packers’ five losses all have something in common when Aaron Rodgers starts feeling pressure.
The Packers are hoping they don’t see their #12 in this predicament on Sunday night
Packers Offensive Line vs. Giants Defensive Line
This is probably THE key to this game for the Packers. Their offensive line has struggled when all of their regular starters were healthy and in position. Now add to that a shuffled line to account for the loss of right tackle Bryan Bulaga against...
It’d be nice if Packers TE Jermichael Finley would get going and help the Packers crack the code of cover-2 defenses.
Now that you’ve had some time to digest the Packers losing to the Giants, ask yourself this:
Is your opinion of the Packers now any different than your opinion before the embarrassment against the Giants?
Mine isn’t. Here’s why:
We already knew the offensive...
Looking to play a quick game of “Where’s Waldo?” during an NFL game this Sunday? Hate to spoil your fun, but it’s not going to take very long to find him.
As the winter season is now upon us, the NFL has released its latest line of cold-weather apparel, which features some interesting hats. The knit sideline hats have been distributed to the players and are now for sale on...
