Surviving Sundays With No Packers Football
Sundays with Packers football are over for a long time. In fact, there is no football at all this Sunday (the pro bowl doesn’t count), so it’s time to resurrect Surviving Sunday. As long as I have time and as long as I remember, I’ll try and do a Surviving Sunday every week to muse about some sort of topic and recap the week in Packers news ad other nonsense.
This week, I want to talk about the atmosphere at Lambeau Field.
At the end of this column about the Packers being too soft to join the NFL’s elite, Bob McGinn takes a dig at Packers fans:
And the crowds at Lambeau Field have started to remind me of those staid assemblages at the University of Michigan. It’s the place to be seen and all that, but it has been a long time since a visiting coach or player went on and on about how difficult it was to hear and play in Green Bay.
Nowhere is it written that the Packers shall contend for if not win the Super Bowl every year, but some fans sure...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Packers could be playing for the Super Bowl if they had a better defense and a running game. Which should they pick up in the draft.
Here is my first look at the NFL Draft. There are a lot of teams that need quarterbacks this year. The problem, there are not enough QB's in the draft.
I expect to see teams trying to trade down, will they have any takers?...
ONE LAST TIME
The Pro Bowl is full of gimmicks and the 2013 version was no different. Jeff Saturday spent most of his career snapping the ball in Indianapolis to quarterback Peyton Manning. Every game that Manning played in Indianapolis occurred with Saturday as the center. This year both players left Indianapolis as Manning went to Denver and Saturday headed to Green Bay. Both ended up in Hawaii...
Year after year, the annual NFL Pro Bowl continues to become a joke to some including Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers.
His sentiments haven’t changed, ”After the Pro Bowl experience, the things that happened at the hotel, during the week and then in the game, I just thought was so disappointing,” he told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “Not only myself, the coaching staff...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- If there was any remaining doubt whether two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Greg Jennings is going to be back with the Packers next season, it may have been erased Monday.Jennings' 4,788 square-foot home in De Pere, Wis. -- located 10 minutes from Lambeau Field -- was put up for sale with an asking price of 525,000.The listing is currently being featured on Realtor...
Green Bay Packers center Jeff Saturday momentarily switched teams during the Pro Bowl on Sunday for one last thrill before he retires.
Saturday was the longtime center of the Colts and played his entire Indianapolis career with Peyton Manning as his quarterback. He came into the league a year after Manning, and the two won a Super Bowl and made 16 Pro Bowls together. Both left the...
Last year’s Pro Bowl was more of a joke than a game. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was upset at the player’s lack of competition. So far J.J. Watt has a bloody hand and teams are hitting each other hard. The game seems to be legit. During the game Green Bay Packers Jeff Saturday who used to play with Peyton Manning when they both played for the Colts snapped the ball to Manning...
Green Bay's Jeff Saturday, the NFC's backup center, snapped the ball to the AFC's Peyton Manning. With Saturday retiring, it was a special moment between longtime teammates. It was a highlight of the NFC's 62-35 victory over the AFC.
This is pretty great: Jeff Saturday played center for the AFC on one play to snap the ball to Peyton Manning for the final time before he retires.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- There were very high expectations on the Packers' group of wide receivers this season. Often considered the deepest unit of any team in the NFL and playing in a pass-first offense with superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers throwing them the ball, Green Bay went into most games with a clear advantage in that area.However, finishing as the league's ninth-ranked...
Jeff Saturday, a longtime anchor of the Indianapolis Colts offensive line before playing one season with the Green Bay Packers, says he will retire after Sunday's Pro Bowl.
Saturday, finishing up his 14th NFL season, made the Pro Bowl for the sixth time even though he was benched late in the season by the Packers. On Thursday, he said he would take time to consider whether...
Looking back on the Green Bay Packers 2012 season there is a lot to like, the defense improved and guys like Casey Hayward and Randall Cobb showed a glimpse into a bright future for the Packers. While there may be some bright spots, the team fell for the second consecutive season in the Divisional Round because their defense gave up 40+ points and they couldn’t protect...
