Green Bay Will Punch Seattle In The Jaw To Start The 2014 Season

Success is even harder to maintain than it is to acheive.  Last year, the Seahawks escalated to the pinnacle of the football world, winning the Super Bowl. Widely regarded as underdogs, they used a powerful running game, timely passing and a lightning fast defense to plow under anyone they faced. Even though they had demonstrated their ability to finish before, many teams didn...

NFC North: Packers - Come on now,  no one is going to de-throne Aaron Rodgers.  I like what the Bears did this past offseason, but the Packers...

  Peyton Manning comes out on top again, beating out Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees for the top spot. Picking a quarterback for your fantasy squad is tricky business, especially because a quarterback’s real-life performance doesn’t always translate to fantasy.  In many cases, the value of a fantasy quarterback can skyrocket or plummet from year to year, not necessarily mean because...

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett calls Aaron Rodgers a vegetable

Like the snake and the mongoose or the lion and the hyena, it’s only natural for defensive linemen to hate quarterbacks, but if you were to ask them why I doubt that any of them could be as eloquent as Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett. In an interview with John Boyle of the Herald of Everett over the weekend, Bennett likened quarterbacks to everyone’s least favorite...

5 reasons the Packers can beat the Seahawks

I hate the Seahawks. Pete Carroll is annoying. I’m sick of hearing about how loud their stupid stadium is. Russel Wilson is a terrible actor in bad commercials. Half the team is jacked up on PEDs. I can never figure out what Richard Sherman is yelling about. I hope the Packers beat the Seahawks on Thursday by 12 touchdowns. Then I hope they build a giant bonfire at midfield, burn...
