PHOTO: Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn goes nuts at Pearl Jam concert

Is there any job in the world that’s better than being the backup for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers? I doubt it. Matt Flynn will make just under one million dollars this season for the honor of holding a clipboard on the sidelines and watch the greatest player in the NFL do his work. Sounds like a great reason to go out and party to me, and that’s exactly what Flynn...

Green Bay Packers are the favorites in the NFC

As we reach the midpoint of the 2014 season, there have been plenty of surprises around the league.  The Dallas Cowboys, yes the Dallas Cowboys, have a league best record at 6-1.  The New Orleans Saints, who many predicted would be in the Super Bowl, are struggling at 2-4.  Probably the most surprising team is the defending champion Seattle Seahawks, who are at 3-3. One team that...

Matt Flynn had a blast at Pearl Jam concert

Life as a backup quarterback in the NFL isn’t bad. You technically get to call yourself an NFL quarterback, but you don’t have to worry about the injuries or scrutiny that come with being the starter. And when you go to Pearl Jam concerts in nearby cities, you are a big deal. That was the case for Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn, who spent his Tuesday night at...

Packers’ 2014 Draft Class Paying Early Dividends

As I sat in the Lambeau Field bleachers and watched the Panthers game, I couldn’t help but to think of how well the 2014 draft class is panning out.  Now there are certainly disappointments.  It’s possible (maybe even likely) that Khyri Thornton Carl Bradford and Demetri Goodson can’t play.  Jared Abbrederis was lost for the season with an ACL injury.  Other than that though...

Randall Cobb Setting Himself Up For Big Money

It’s no coincidence that the Green Bay Packers’ offense has jump started with the return of the electric and explosive Randall Cobb. Green Bay’s offense struggled during their 1-2 start in large part because Cobb was showing rust from his broken leg last season and Aaron Rodgers was locking in on Jordy Nelson too much because he had nobody else he trusted. Now, with Cobb returning...

Green Bay Packers: News, stats and stars from the Panthers game

To say the Green Bay Packers came out strong against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday would be an understatement.  The Packers came out on fire, scoring 28 straight points to open the game before the Panthers added a Graham Gano field goal right before the half.  For the second time in as many weeks, Aaron Rodgers did not play the entire fourth quarter, as the Packers cruised to...

James Starks and Eddie Lacy each produce in rout of Panthers (Sunday NFL Review)

James Starks and Lacy each scored first quarter touchdowns against Carolina, as part of productive days overall. Lacy has been losing snaps to Starks all season, and whether it comes as a result of production or a view toward keeping the sophomore back fresh for 16+ games, it doesn’t appear to be going away. Nevertheless, both were productive, netting 13.3 and 10.3 standard league...

Luke Kuechly ejected after questionable call

When the officials become part of a story, you know there is something going on during a football game. That happened Sunday afternoon with the Green Bay Packers blowing out the Carolina Panthers. Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly was ejected for making contact with an official that had come up from behind him. It’s readily apparent in watching a replay of the video that Kuechly...
