Green Bay Packers
San Francisco 49ers
You know what’s been bugging me about some fans’ reactions to the 2013 NFL Draft? They look at the San Francisco 49ers, who have been lauded for their draft results, and feel like the Green Bay Packers’ selections were utterly underwhelming by comparison.
Yes, the 49ers had a great draft. They were able to get some highly regarded players who could definitely make their great team even better. But I have a few counterpoints to the assertion that the Packers had a terrible draft in comparison. First and foremost, the 49ers started out with thirteen picks to the Packers’ eight. According to the traditional trade value chart, San Francisco’s total value of picks was about 1,958 points, compared to Green Bay’s total value of about 1,318 points.
In other words, the 49ers started out with 48.6% more draft value than the Packers. Of course they’re going to be able to get more out of it!
Secondly, these players have yet to play a single down in the pro arena. We should very well know by now...

This past weekend's Kentucky Derby, a traditional "who's who?" of stars, was graced with various NFL elite, from Tom Brady to Robert Griffin III to Clay Matthews and Aaron Rodgers.
Matthews and Rodgers are close teammates, friends, and practical jokers. The latter trait came out during a Kentucky Derby party, in which the Packers' linebacker sneakily...
GREEN BAY, Wis. John Schneider once came across an NFL draft prospect's online profile photo in which the player was pictured with a pile of cocaine and several guns. The former Green Bay Packers executive and current Seattle Seahawks general manager marked that down as a red flag for obvious reasons.
This is not that. On a scale of foolish things a college football player...
Surviving Sundays with no Packers Football
With NFL draft now behind us, I’ve found myself asking one question about the Packers over the last week: Do the players Ted Thompson selected make the Packers a more physical team?
The answer I come up with is…maybe?
First-round pick Datone Jones is 6-foot-4, 280 pounds. When you see him play, you think long and lean instead of tough...
Photo from Packers.com The Green Bay Packers will be wearing their throwback uniforms this season when they host the Cleveland Browns. The first wore them in 2010 and 2011 and didn’t wear them last season. The Packers unveiled the third jersey during a 34-16 win over San Francisco on Dec. 5, 2010, and wore them again the following season during a 24-3 win over St. Louis before...
GREEN BAY, Wis. They're back. The Green Bay Packers' 1929 uniforms will be worn by the 2013 Green Bay Packers for an Oct. 20 home game against the Cleveland Browns.
The Packers debuted these slightly altered throwback uniforms in 2010 and wore them again during the 2011 season, but they were not used last season. Both of the team's previous games in those uniforms resulted...

Colin Kaepernick recently got some face time with the First Lady Michelle Obama, and he took full advantage of it. Colin posted a photo to his Instagram of him and the First Lady both Kaepernicking, and the expressions on their faces are priceless. The 49ers quarterback had a break out season last year, and Kaepernicking emerged during his race through the Playoffs. Article found...
Look at this photo. Look at this god damn thing. Look at it and tell me you have ever seen anything more spectacular. You can't. You would be lying. And I hate liars.
I have no real context for this image. I just thought it was important enough to show you all this today on a crappy Monday. I was found from a rather random Twitter account, and that didn't really provide...
According to Peter King of SI.com, the Chiefs will have to give the 49ers a 2nd round pick for quarterback Alex Smith if they end up finishing with an 8-8 record or better in 2013. A third- or second-rounder from Kansas City, the remnant of the Alex Smith deal. Now it can be told: The second draft choice San Francisco will receive from the Smith deal will be K.C.’s second-rounder...
Aaron Rodgers has an extensive history of photobombing teammates. At the Kentucky Derby, Clay Matthews returned the favor with his best rape gaze over the right shoulder of Rodgers. The people at Fathead need to get to work making that an option for a Clay Matthews wall decal. It’ll be a best-seller in the highly lucrative dungeon/mancave demographic.
– Oh hey, a bunch of dumb...

The San Francisco 49ers have signed guard Adam Snyder to a two-year contract, bringing him back to the franchise after a year with the Arizona Cardinals.
The NFC champion Niners already have a steady offensive line intact to protect quarterback Colin Kaepernick, so Snyder might be fighting for playing time in his return.
Arizona released the 31-year-old Snyder last Monday after...
One of the more inspirational aspects of the NFL I enjoy seeing is long shots realize their dreams. We’ve heard countless stories of current players that grew up homeless, broke, poor, without parents, or in violence infested neighborhoods.
49ers star linebacker Patrick Willis grew up as poor as it gets in rural Tennessee. Steelers receiver Antonio Brown overcame being homeless...
