The Green Bay Packers knew it would happen one day. Their franchise quarterback would go down with an injury and be “out” for a lengthy recovery. Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone and needed at least 5 weeks….or more….of recovery time.
What the Packers and their faithful had hoped for was at least a win or two to sustain their quest for the post-season.
What we witnessed on Thanksgiving was the culmination of an embarrassment of talent that has been gathered through the draft by Ted Thompson and his staff. A group of talent, so poor in their execution, that they are on pace to get one, if not more, of their coaches fired.… Read the rest
When the Bucks went into the off season and jettisoned Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis for an all new back court, I looked at John Hammond’s moves and thought; this might be fun to watch. In comes Larry Drew and I considered this team serious about winning. 11 new players and a seemingly good group of cornerstones should have equaled excitement and enthusiasm.
Boy was I wrong.
Granted, this Bucks team has taken on more than their fair share of injuries but I never expected the Bucks to be this bad. The Bucks have now lost 9 in a row with no signs of a win anywhere in sight.… Read the rest
Packers DB Jarrett Bush sat at Robert Hack Diamonds in Glendale signing autographs for over 200 packers fans. Each fan that passed by had pretty much the same comments, “Thank you” and “I hope you guys play great this weekend”.
I sat down and asked Bush what he thinks the problem has been defensively and he stated, “It’s been a play or two that’s got us. The fast paced offenses we’ve faced, the no huddle, some guys are getting the calls and some ain’t. It only takes one guy not to get it or hear it correctly and it breaks us all down”.… Read the rest
The Packers defense is good enough to sustain when Green Bay’s up by a touchdown or two. But they are just inept enough to never give you hope when the Packers are playing from behind, much less when the quarterback throws at least two picks.
Scott Tolzien was “ok” at best but when his team needed him the most, late in the ball game, he tossed a pick-six to the GIants Jason Pierre Paul that was in essence “the dagger”.
The Packers owned an offensive line that couldn’t open up holes for Eddie Lacy and a d-line, when there was actually a complete d-line on the field, that couldn’t stop the running of Brandon Jacobs…..it all again equaled disaster.… Read the rest
He tells Bucks selfish guards Monte Ellis and Brandon Jennings to knock off the post-season contract talks and concentrate on beating the Miami Heat. A statement that garnered him a near physical altercation with Ellis and respect and cheers of fans like me.
It’s been a downhill slide for Sanders, our former new favorite Buck.
Since the 2013-14 season began, Sanders has become a new father and immediately celebrated the next night in a nightclub in downtown Milwaukee where he got into a fight, allegedly over another woman, while using a champagne bottle to strike a man and sending him to the hospital. … Read the rest
