Football Extra Points:
The Packers are in trouble this season, they have no defense or running game. This team should be a Super Bowl contender, but they have too many questions.
After an average Thanksgiving week of picks I'm sitting at 114-63. I need to step my game up as we sprint to the postseason.
Jacksonville at Buffalo - Chad Henne is proving that he can play QB in the NFL. I liked him in Miami and thought they should have held onto him. The Jaguars are not a good team, but Henne's value increases every week.
The Bills are one of many teams in the NFL that will be looking at the QB position as soon as the season ends. They have a running game, some receivers and a solid TE on offense, they need a QB that won't turn it over. Their defense is a mess too but there's too much to get into here.
I'll go with Henne and the Jaguars here.
Seattle at Chicago - This is a match-up of two very good defenses. The Seahawks have an elite RB to go along with their...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The past few games have been filled with cringing, head shaking, curse flinging, eye covering moments for Packers’ fans everywhere. These moments have been the result of the Packers’ starting kicker. Mason Crosby has been in a bit of a sump this season, and suggestions for his replacement have already surfaced. McCarthy and the rest of the team, however, are standing by their...
Packers TE Andrew Quarless
The Green Bay Packers have placed tight end Andrew Quarless and rookie safety Sean Richardson on the season-ending injured reserve.
Quarless had not played at all in 2012 due to swelling in his knee after suffering a torn ACL and MCL last season. He came off the physically unable to perform list Nov. 7 but was never able to get back to full strength.
GREEN BAY, Wis. Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson will remain on injured reserve for the rest of this season after undergoing surgery Wednesday.
Benson initially was placed on Green Bay's injured reserve Oct. 10 after a Lisfranc foot injury, but the team designated him for return under the NFL's new rule. Under this rule, Benson had to sit out six weeks of practice...
For a guy who does his best work in the air, Aaron Rodgers is spending way too much time on the ground.
The reigning NFL MVP has been sacked 37 times, more than any other quarterback in the league. He's taken more hits in the first 11 games than he did all of last season (36 sacks), and is on pace to topple the career-high 50 sacks he took in 2009.
And the Green Bay Packers...
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told the media today that running back Cedric Benson will remain on injured reserve this season after undergoing surgery on his foot.
McCarthy: Benson had surgery yesterday. He will not be back with us this season.

For some fans, it’s been rather frustrating to see all those Greg Jennings Old Spice commercials and not see the star receiver on the football field.
Due to a variety of injuries, it’s been since September 30th since Jennings saw live action for the Green Bay Packers.
With his expected return to the gridiron this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings, Old Spice’s official facebook...
Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will miss his fourth consecutive game Sunday against Minnesota. He's been dealing with a hamstring issue.Fantasy Spin:Green Bay was hoping Matthews would be fully recovered but apparently he's still in some pain. This is great news for the Vikings' offense.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the Minnesota Vikings (6-5) to make the playoffs this season, they'll need to win at least one of their two upcoming games with the division-rival Packers (7-4). The first of those two NFC North showdowns is Sunday at Lambeau Field, with both teams' regular-season schedules concluding four weeks later in Minnesota.
"I want to go ahead and control...
So in an effort to forget about the Packers dismal showing against the Giants, I instead decided to analyze something completely different, namely the first and only pass that one Graham Harrell has thrown in the National Football League. Some of you might know but Harrell was the only backup quarterback in the NFL who had never thrown a pass in a game (though it has to be said...

The Minnesota Vikings will play against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at 1 p.m. EST on FOX. Green Bay (7-4) is coming off a disappointing loss to the New York Giants last week while Minnesota (6-5) hurt their playoff chances with a loss to Chicago Bears.
Green Bay has to feel good about their chances to make the playoffs, their seven wins place them alone as the NFC’s first wild...
Eden Prairie, Minn. -- For Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder and Green Bay strong safety Morgan Burnett, the Florida State-Georgia Tech rivalry will extend beyond Saturday night's Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.
Ponder was an FSU quarterback when he first faced Burnett and the Yellow Jackets in 2008. The two will meet again during the FOX America's Game...
