The Penalty Flag:
Thanks to concept of free agency, there is no off season for the NFL. Free agency has been more than just a little exciting this year, even for Green Bay Packers fans. The Packers may not have joined in “Tebow-Mania”, but they have been unusually active this season. Although GM Ted Thompson prefers to build

McCloughan spent six years with the Packers in the 90s
Reggie McKenzie worked under Ted Thompson for seven years, but he obviously doesn’t adhere to his former boss’ philosophy of saying as little as possible when it comes to dealing with the media. Oakland’s new general manager hasn’t shut his mouth since being hired away from the Packers 10 weeks ago. And now his public...

In fact, the four-year veteran from Northwestern State (La.)...
The Packers are interested in bringing back a former player
There’s no guarantee that Dave Tollefson’s rendezvous with the Packers on Friday will lead to a deal, but I actually think the odds are pretty good.

New documentary will reopen old wounds for Packers fans
It’s hard to believe over four years have passed since Brett Favre announced his “retirement” from the Packers. It seems like only yesterday, but in reality, so much has happened since then.
Favre trashed the organization that rescued him from Atlanta and paid him over $100 million. General manager Ted Thompson traded...
In free agency, Bears GM Phil Emery has attempted to close the talent gap between Chicago and the Green Bay Packers, but there is still plenty of work left to be done.
