Kissing Suzy Kolber:
Over the weekend, one of them innernet wags tweeted this picture of a kid with a lush, blond flowing mullet to Clay Matthews, who retweeted it with a vague jokey comment, leading some to believe that the image is actually of a young Claymaker. The mistake is understandable, as it’s fun to believe people exhibited their most recognizable physical traits as early as childhood. As though Clay sprang forth, crazy tresses in place, needing only age plus steroids to become the physical force that he is now. Except he didn’t, and now this Cheesehead has trolled a bunch of bloggers with nothing more than a plead for a retweet from a celebrity. [30-minute Aaron Sorkin rant about the dangers of new media and THE. PERIOD. WORST. PERIOD. GENERATION. PERIOD. EVER. PERIOD.]

BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Can Jerron McMillian fill the shoes of Nick Collins?
It was a formula that paid dividends for the Green Bay Packers the last time around so GM Ted Thompson figured it was worth trying again.
In his first draft as head of the Packers football operations in 2005, Thompson selected a player from a small school who in time had a big impact on the organization. In the second round...
Most of the offseason chatter about Packers starters getting benched has centered on A.J. Hawk being replaced by D.J. Smith. That very well might happen, but what about other starters that could find themselves on the bench once the season starts?
According to Pro Football Focus (PFF), Walden totaled just three sacks, 14 QB hits and 22 QB hurries in 15 starts. From week...
Randall Cobb does a nice job in this interview, butI have to laugh at the poll in the second half of this video. The question was “What is the Packers biggest weakness?” 46% of responders said running back, 29% secondary, 17% pass rush, 7% offensive line. So the Packers’ pass rush was just a minor problem, huh? Shaking my head…
Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams believes this year’s defense will bounce back and build ff of last year with the new pieces they’ve added from the offseason.
“At the end of the day, (did) we have a terrible defense? Yeah, we did, but we were productive out there,” Williams recently said, via the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “We did what we’ve always...
What could anyone possible have to worry about?
Green Bay is fielding roughly the same team it did last year when they went 15-1. They still have arguably the best quarterback in the league. And most of the nation has already penciled them in for the top of the NFCN again. Now it only remains to see what they have to do to make a run at another Super Bowl... Right?
While the Packers...
SantosAJ. Hawk must be getting restless in the off-season. It is no secret that there are few things that bring more joy to a linebacker’s life than to knock someone on to the ground. However, usually that person is getting paid to be knocked to the ground by you. That was not the case for this poor guy.
What started out as what seems to be a friendly game of football with a real...
The NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell has rejected the appeals of the four players he suspended for their involvement in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, as reported by ESPN.
Goodell told Jonathan Vilma, Anthony Hargrove, Will Smith and Scott Fujita that he retains "the inherent authority to reduce a suspension should facts be brought to my attention warranting...
AJ Hawk is apparently ready for the NFL season to begin. This video comes via Off The Bench and shows AJ playing touch football at a charity golf outing in Warren, Ohio. No big deal… Except as you’ll see, AJ shoves the recipient of a Troy Smith (Former Heisman Trophy winning QB) pass into a [...]
NOT A NEW THING
Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews Jr. posted a crazy looking picture of himself when he was a child. His hair was out of control. Check it out below.

2012 NFL Season Preview for the Green Bay Packers.
There are plenty of little-known rookies on the Packers’ current roster, but diehard fans know plenty about all the returning veterans. Well, almost all the returning veterans. Herb Taylor was signed last December, and even though he was part of the team for the final three games of the season, he’s the forgotten man when it comes to projecting which offensive linemen will be...
Aaron Rodgers has completed 66.2% of his throws since 2009. That number becomes even more impressive when you consider how many passes his receivers have dropped. James Jones and Donald Driver rank in the bottom seven of the 61 wide receivers who had at least 125 catchable balls thrown their way over the past three years. According to Pro Football Focus, Jones has dropped 20 of 139...
Surviving Sunday with no Packers Football
It’s already July, but football and the Packers first game still feels like it’s a long ways away. Good thing it’s never too early to talk some fantasy football.
Here are my way-too-early top five at each position, along with a darkhorse candidate and some random thoughts.
1. Aaron Rodgers
2. Tom Brady
3. Drew Brees
4. Matthew Stafford...
A.J. Hawk, you need to wrap up when you tackle.
In this piece, Kyle Rodriguez of Colts Authority looks at some of the similarities between the Colts' fan base and other teams' fanbases. The perception, as pointed out by Rodriguez, is that Colts fans are fair weather fans. Being a Hoosier myself, I can tell you that there's no comparison between Colts or Patriots fans...
Calvin Johnson's got the kind-of-cool nickname — assuming you think being named for a cartoon character is cool — but did he have a better season than Jordy Nelson? Not so fast on answering that as we provide our thought-provoking Packers nugget of the day.
