NY Jets should effectively rush Aaron Rodgers

Mo Wilk

This NY Jets defense contains arguably Rex Ryan’s best pass rush since he came to New York in 2009.

Through the years, he’s been able to call defensive gems against the likes of Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. He did so against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers back in 2010, but the offense faltered and the Jets were shutout 9-0. Rodgers went just 15 of 34 for 74 yards and 0 touchdowns in that one.

Green Bay Packers: Ranking Bryan Bulaga’s replacements

Well, so much for the retooled Green Bay Packers offensive line.

With one twist of a knee, a massive monkey wrench was thrown into Mike McCarthy’s master plan to protect franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Barring the acquisition of a street free agent – none of which inspire much confidence anyway – let’s look at the Packers’ best options currently on the roster: [Read more…]

NFC North Marathon begins with the Detroit Lions for the Green Bay Packers

Five of the Green Bay Packers’ seven remaining games will come against NFC North opponents. That should make for a very interesting division battle as Green Bay (6-3) sits just one game back of the Chicago Bears (7-2).

The marathon begins with the Detroit Lions who are coming off a tough 34-24 loss to the Minnesota Vikings and will need every game they can get in order to make the playoffs. [Read more…]

The injury-riddled Packers beat the Cardinals for their fourth straight win

Injuries are as common to football as cheese is to Wisconsin, but the plague that has hit Green Bay is way beyond what any normal team goes through.

After beating the Arizona Cardinals by the score of 31-17, the Packers (6-3) are legitimately without 11 starting players. New injuries to WR Jordy Nelson, OL Bryan Bulaga and LB/DE Clay Matthews only adds salt to an open wound as the team enters their bye week. [Read more…]

Kansas City Chiefs Bring the Packers Perfect World Crashing Down

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Kansas City Chiefs shocked the world with an impressive 19-14 win over the previously undefeated Green Bay Packers. Green Bay’s 19 game winning streak came to a screeching halt with a lot of credit due to the’ Chiefs defense who put forth an inspiring effort.

Not only did the Packers receive their first L on the season, linemen Bryan Bulaga and Derek Sherrod went down with injuries, further hurting an already weak offensive line.

Yes, the Packers can no longer have an unblemished season, but maybe a loss helps their quest for back-to-back Super Bowls.

Chicago Bears Season Circling the Drain After Loss to Packers

It’s safe to say the Monsters of the Midway are toiling because their 2011 season is certainly in the toilet.

The Chicago Bears didn’t get the Green Bay Packers A-game, or even their B+game, but they still got beat pretty bad. As my colleague in America’s Dairyland points out, it was an ugly penalty and turnover filled slopfest.

The turf at Soldier Field is among the worst in all of sports, but it was so bad yesterday that it necessitated a stoppage in play. The surface is a fine metaphor for the style of the game, and the Bears 2011 season prospects- all of them resemble excrement.

Also resembling excrement is the statistics surrounding the Bears running game and Matt Forte.

Green Bay Packers Beat the Chicago Bears, But in Ugly Fashion


For some reason, every time the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears meet at Soldier Field, it ends up being an absolutely ugly game that makes fans from each side very frustrated.

The 183rd meeting between division rivals was no different as the Packers (3-0) drudged out a 27-17 victory over the Bears (1-2) in a game which contained 17 total penalties and four turnovers.

Despite the ugly nature of the game, it didn’t stop tight-end Jermichael Finley from having a beast of a game with seven catches, 85 yards and a career-high three touchdowns.
