One Hit Wonders or the Beginning of Something More

As a football fan, you have seen many players come and go for your team. Sometimes, a player simply comes out of nowhere to make a huge impact for one season, then disappears back to the bench for the rest of his career.

The first reason this happens is that football is a punishing game. Unless you are prepared to take lots of big hits, you are likely to get injured when you take the field. Players that have one great season may not Read more…

They’re Young and Ready to Repeat

The Green Bay Packers have one of the youngest teams in the NFL, and they’ve already won a Super Bowl recently. Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the league, and there is no longer any doubt about that. He can make every type of throw, and he’s very accurate at throwing on the run. He can hit his receivers even if they aren’t open, because he’s so accurate with his passes. As long as his offensive line continues to give him the time he needs, he should be able Read more…

But Can They do it Again?

Following last season’s shocking playoff collapse, the Packers are eager to get back into action. At 13-0 and steamrolling opponents like few NFL teams had done before, the Week 15 upset loss to Kansas City appeared to be an aberration. In their first postseason game versus the NY Giants, however, the Packers turned in by far their worst performance of the season, getting thrashed by the eventual Super Bowl champion, 37-20.

For 2012, Green Bay’s offense remains basically intact, with MVP Read more…

Are the Packers Done with the Driver’s Seat?

Despite winning the superbowl last year the Green Bay Packers have been slightly overshadowed by other squads in the NFL as the 2011 season finally gets under way. Teams such as the Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals, and New England Patriots have garnered most of the national media attention and hype by signing big free agents and pulling off key trades. Despite all this the Packers should still be considered favorites to win next year’s big game, even considering the enormous difficulty of repeating as champions in the NFL.Want more?

Meet Matt Flynn

Aaron Rodgers week 14 concussion awakened something deep within Packer fans, a fear not felt since the onset of the 2008 season. Suddenly from aisle to aisle across Lambeau Field, cheeseheads turned to one another to ask, “What the hell are we going to do at quarterback?” Even most Green Bay diehards know relatively little about the team’s second in command under center, and with Aaron Rodgers consistently staying on the field while putting up All-World passing numbers since his first season as starter, there’s been no need to get acquainted. Now with Rodger’s starting status in serious question for the first time, it seems as good a point as ever to get to know Packers backup QB Matt Flynn.In the mold of Matt Cassell, in terms of experience not necessarily physical attributes, Flynn has spent much of his football playing career as a backup since high school. While attending Louisiana State University, Flynn spent his freshman year redshirted on the sidelines before serving the dubious honor of backing up JaMarcus Russell for the next 3 seasons. Unlike Cassell, however, Flynn was finally given the chance to start in his 5th and final season of eligibility, a year that ended with Flynn capturing both the 2008 BCS National Championship Trophy and Offensive MVP honors. Not completely smooth sailing for Flynn’s entire time at the helm, LSU did also earn the distinction as the only 2 loss National Champion in the history of the BCS era and first by any measuring stick since the 1960 Minnesota Golden Gophers. Still, Flynn ultimately maintained the poise and moxie necessary to guide the Tigers to the promise land, overcoming setbacks against Kentucky and Arkansas, both of which came in triple overtime contests.

Packers Offensive Preview

Who was the only team in the NFL to boast a 4,000 yard passer, a 1,000 yard rusher and two 1,000 yard receivers? That’s right, your Green Bay Packers. Throw in blossoming tight end Jermichael Finley and you have the recipe for the most dangerous offense in the NFL. While Donald Driver is certainly getting up there in age and may suffer some drop off in production, Greg Jennings relatively underperformed last year and should make up for any lag in Driver’s stats were he to take a step back. In his previous two seasons, Jennings accounted for 21 total touchdowns. Though his career high of 12 in 2007 was set with Brett Favre at the helm, there’s no logical reason to believe his 4 last year will be the trend with Aaron Rodgers. By most accounts, last year was an aberration, as 2008 saw Rodgers and Jennings connect for 9 scores, with Jennings topping 1,000 yards for the second time in his career, both on the receiving end of Rodgers passes.
