What makes the “who’s the quarterback of all-time?” debate so much fun is that the question has no answer. You can argue that Peyton Manning is the greatest QB that ever played because he has the best stats. You would be equally correct to argue that Joe Montana is the best because he went 4-0 in […]

Packers Face Crucial Test on Sunday
From 1992 to 2014 the Green Bay Packers defeated the Detroit Lions in every game played in Wisconsin. That streak of dominance came to an end last year when the Lions squeaked out an 18-16 victory at Lambeau Field. Despite that recent blip, the Lions are a team the Packers should defeat at home. Unfortunately, things in […]
Super Bowl or Bust for the Packers?
According to Betteridge’s Law of Headlines, “any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word ‘no.'” The headline of this column is no exception. A pervasive mentality among Green Bay Packers fans (and observers) is that any season with Aaron Rodgers that does not culminate with a Super Bowl win […]
Milwaukee Bucks Join Free Agent Spending Frenzy
Any discussion of the current free agent spending frenzy in the NBA must begin with the new salary cap. The salary cap is making a massive increase from $70 million to about $95 million for the 2016-2017 season. When you pair this with the size of an NBA roster (13 players) you’re going to see […]
Green Bay Packers Offense Has No Quick Fix
The first column I wrote for the Racine County Eye praised Mike McCarthy’s decision to surrender play calling duties for the Green Bay Packers. After the Packers struggled on Sunday to score points against the 1-7 Detroit Lions (a.k.a worst scoring defense in the NFL) I began to wonder if McCarthy should resume calling the plays. But McCarthy […]
Is the Packers Defense Better Than Their Offense?
The 2003 Milwaukee Brewers finished the season with a 68-94 record. A team that putrid does not give fans much to discuss, a fact best shown by the “Is Matt Kinney or Wayne Franklin the #2 starter?” debate. It’s important to remember such discussions to keep perspective when things are going very well for your team, as […]
It’s Packers-Bears Week!
The NFL off-season is never a fun time for Packers fans, especially when it beings thanks to a game you’d rather forget. But after eight months of stewing about what could have been, the Packers will begin their quest for redemption as they take the field on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. The general consensus among people not […]
James Jones a Welcome Return to Green Bay
On Sunday it was confirmed that wide receiver James Jones will return to the Green Bay Packers. The exact details of the deal are still to be announced, but it is expected to be a one-year contract. Jones, 31, has never been a superstar receiver and is on the opposite end of his prime. Even […]
Jordy Nelson Likely Out For The Season
Excitement for the upcoming Green Bay Packers season has been replaced with trepidation thanks to the news that Jordy Nelson likely tore his ACL. The injury occurred in the first quarter of Sunday’s pre-season game in Pittsburgh versus the Steelers. In what looked like an otherwise benign play, Nelson leapt for a pass and came down without […]
