Green Bay Packers mild winter: quiet in free agency, stadium renovation

lambeau-field

It’s been a very mild winter in Green Bay, Wisconsin. As well as the rest of the United States. But the tundra is not freezing over as much, and the Packers have been pretty quiet in free agency this NFL offseason. This year more than ever, they’ve reinforced the reputation as a team that likes to build through the draft. It’s what GM Ted Thompson likes to do.

He’s a value GM and likes to draft BPA: best player available.

The biggest news they’ve made in free agency is letting Matt Flynn leave. But the mild winter has also had consequence on the Lambeau Field addition. The scoreboard addition seems to be moving ahead as scheduled, or even faster.

With an offense led by Aaron Rodgers and a seemingly endless amount of weapons on the perimeter, a running game has not been integral for the Green Bay Packers the past couple of years.  However, with Ryan Grant hitting the free agent market this off-season, general manager Ted Thompson will have to make a decision about which direction to go with the position.

What Should The Packers Do With Free Agent Jermichael Finley?

With Ryan Grant, Donald Driver, Jermichael Finley, Scott Wells, and Matt Flynn all free agents and the Green Bay Packers needing some drastic upgrades on the defensive side of the football, Pack general manager Ted Thompson has some major decisions to make this off-season.

Plaxico Burress Moves to Other NY Team; Jets Clearly NFL’s most INSANE Squad

As you no doubt have heard, wide receiver Plaxico Burress is staying in New York. He’s moved from the first team to the second. From the proud franchise to the ginger-featured stepchild. For the Jets, this means that WR Braylon Edwards is now certainly gone. (If he wasn’t already). That means the Jets are replacing one troubled wideout who did his college football in Michigan (Edwards played for the Wolverines) with another troubled receiver who also played Big Ten football in the state. (Plax played for the Michigan State Spartans).

As usual when you move from UM to MSU, you tend to get more thuggish ruggish. Edwards was fined for a DUI. Burress went to jail for illegal weapons possession.

Chad Ochocinco Ready for The Patriot Way, Bill Belichick Upbeat About Transactions

belichick

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick addressed the media this morning to discuss the recent additions of WR Chad Ochocinco and DL Albert Haynesworth, he also talked about the veteran cuts they had to make. There was some snarkiness by BB when asked about how the two additions will fit into how he does things.

Many are questioning how the colorful personalities will mesh with the Draconian program that Belichick runs. See more on that after the jump.

Ochocinco also spoke with reporters this morning and said he’s willing to change to fit in in Foxboro.

“I’ll always be me. But there’s a certain way the Patriots do it, and I’ve always been a chameleon, and I’m going to do it the Patriot way, which is win,” he said.

He also knows Belichick doesn’t want him to be quite as outspoken and attention-seeking as he was with the Cincinnati Bengals.

“Bill, we had our talk and without him having to say anything, I’ll say, there’s no need for some of the things that have been before,” Ochocinco said.

Is it ethical for the AP to remove the guy on the left's middle finger from the photo? I'm assuming so, because they did it.
