Leonard Fournette adds ‘Le’ to back of LSU jersey

It’s always nice having the opportunity to play football with a sibling isn’t it? You have heard of pairs of brothers playing on separate teams in the NFL like Tiki and Ronde Barber or Shannon and Sterling Sharpe, but it’s not every day that the brothers get to play on the same team. LSU running back Leonard Fournette is easily one of the most dynamic and hyped up players going...

One Hall Of A Receiver

Shannon Sharpe was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011 and he wasn’t even the best player in his own family. While another eight people slipped on a yellow jacket Saturday, former Packers wide receiver Sterling Sharpe remains on the outside looking in – a place where he unfortunately figures to remain for the foreseeable future. The Hall of Fame’s selection...

Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Sterling Sharpe

On August 8, 2015, Ron Wolf will receive his well deserved bronze bust and take his rightful place in the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.  Next year, Brett Favre will be enshrined.  Both of these events will be exciting for Green Bay Packers fans and I too look forward to the party. On the other hand, every time I watch one of these NFL Hall of Fame ceremonies on TV I am reminded...

History Lessons: Shannon Sharpe

Shannon Sharpe was one of the key figures of the Denver Broncos Super Bowl triumphs. Sharpe was a Chicago native and was the second member of his family to play in the NFL. His brother Sterling Sharpe beat him into the league as a wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers from 1988-94. Sharpe grew up below the line in Glennville, Georgia. Sharpe once joked: “We were so poor, when...

Everyone remembers the movie Space Jam.

History Shows Packers are Dangerous as Playoff Underdogs

When the postseason rolls around, the word "underdog" is defined in Green and Gold. Green Bay was the Kings of the NFL throughout the 1960's. However, even with Hall of Fame head coach Vince Lombardi at the helm. They had to start as underdogs and the rest says itself with two Super Bowl rings but then two decades of being a NFL wasteland (aside the 1982 strike shortening season...

Sterling Sharpe finished his seven-year NFL career with 595 receptions, 8,134 yards and 65 touchdowns. Sterling Sharpe will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame this year.
