bengals

 

Making predictions for the Super Bowl on February 2nd today on August 27th. Yes, you got to love it. That’s why I’m all about the Cincinnati Bengals as your Super Bowl champion. When you make NFL divisional and Wild Card picks before even the 4th preseason game…well that’s bold.

Look for these to be about as accurate as my NFL mock draft. So don’t take this with a grain of salt. How about a whole truckload of salt. Well, time is a wasting so let’s jump right to the predictions.

You can sign Donald Driver’s retirement card

donald-driver

The Green Bay Packers without Donald Driver is like the New England Patriots without Troy Brown.

On Wednesday, Donald Driver will officially announce his retirement in front of fans, coaches, and other members of the Packers family at Lambeau Field.
Before he makes it official, Packers fans like you have the chance to say goodbye to one of the greatest Packers of our generation. Or if you’re a Bears fan, write something not so nice. Or if you just don’t like Driver for some other reason…go nuts

green-bay-packers

We’re just one day away from the Green Bay Packers’ playoff opener against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field. So this afternoomn Vic Ketchman editor from Packers.com hosted Pack President and CEO Mark Murphy on an open conference call for Packer backers. As a stockholder, I had to listen in and hear what Murphy had to say.

Murphy seemed to like a lot of the questions, saying “that’s a good question,” in response to many of the queries.

Aaron Rodgers ripped on Twitter by Greg Jennings’ sister

aaron_rodgers

Wow! The kids in elementary school (in the insurance ad) aren’t as hard on Aaron Rodgers as the sister of Greg Jennings. No discount double check applicable to Valyncia Jennings. Despite the fact that her brother was targeted 12 times and had 120 yards receiving in the Green Bay Packers loss to the Minnesota Vikings, she was still less than satisfied.

She’s an example of how live tweeting a game can be stupid, and dangerous.

Green Bay Packers schedule out, three of first four at Lambeau

aaron_rodgers

In 2012, the Green Bay Packers find themselves in one of the biggest match-ups of week one, as last year’s #1 seed in the NFC will take on an NFC finalist in the San Francisco 49ers. After that scintillating on paper contest the Pack host the rival Chicago Bears in week two on a Thursday night. After a week three trip to Seattle, to battle the Seahawks on Monday night, the Packers return home to face the Sean Payton-less New Orleans Saints, and possibly get revenge for the bounty hunters targeting Aaron Rodgers.

Green Bay Packers 2012 preseason schedule; erase sour 2011 memories

green-bay-packers-logo

Given the way 2011 ended for the Green Bay Packers, with that bitter, stomach-churning upset to the New York Giants in the postseason. Which shut the door on the promising, dominating 15-1 regular season, and opened the door for the 9-7 Giants to beat the New England Patriots and win the Super Bowl. (In other words, a NFL version of the 83-79 St. Louis Cardinals winning the 2006 World Series)

Time is already here to move on to 2012.

And the Pack preseason schedule is already out.

The Milwaukee Brewers had an MVP on their roster in 2011, they also landed another MVP to work with them in 2012: Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

In February, the Brewers and Aaron Rodgers joined forces to film a series of television spots promoting the 2012 Brewers. Numerous players appeared in the spots, including the Brewers 2011 National League MVP Ryan Braun.

Green Bay Packers draft: mocking the first couple picks

packers-fans

The Green Bay Packers led the NFL in passing yards allowed last season. Therefore, they’re going to focus on DBs and and pass-rushers first and foremost in the 2012 NFL draft right? Not so fast my friend. What about a tight end if Jermichael Finley leaves? What about the running back situation?

Then we must consider the fact that Ted Thompson is as much a “value GM” as there can be possibly be, so team needs will play much less of a factor than we think they should.

The Green Bay Packers today announced a price increase on tickets for the 2012 season. The increase will range from $3 to $5, depending on the section.

“For the Packers, ticket revenue continues be an important component of our ability to remain financially competitive with the other 31 NFL teams,” Murphy said in the letter. “Our goal each year is to be at the league average in terms of our ticket prices. This increase maintains our position near the league average.”

“Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers, your new pledge name is….” “Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Graham Harrell, it is tim.”

That’s right both the Pack 1st and 3rd string signal callers have joined a fraternity, the same exact one actually. As of January 5th, 2012 6pm CT, both men became members of Tau Kappa Epsilon.

Next Penn State Coach: Packers QB Coach Tom Clements?

tom_clements

Penn State University has been in contact with Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements about the Nittany Lions’ newly open coaching position.

How much actual legitimacy there is to his candidacy depends on how much you believe of what you hear and how much you believe those sources.

A source close to Clements told ESPN’S Chris Mortensen on Friday:

“There is no telephone interview or conversation that is scheduled between Tom and Penn State, there never has been one scheduled, nor is there anything scheduled in the foreseeable future.”

However, the source conceded there had been “minimal dialogue” between the two sides and that Clements had notified the Packers about the contact, but “everyone agreed to stay focused on the task at hand with the (Packers).”

But there’s more:
