Today is the day the axe will fall on numerous NFL coaches and GMs. If it were happening on Christmas Eve, and not New Year’s Eve, these acts would be Dickensian.

Packers Upset Eagles With a Stark Surprise


There’s only one thing that can make Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense even more dangerous than they already are and that’s a formidable running game.

On Sunday, rookie running back James Starks gave the team just that when he ran 23 times for a rookie-record 123 yards to lead the Green Bay Packers to a 21-16 upset of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Although, the latter did only have thirteen carries.
