Good news, everyone! There's no question that the Green Bay Packers and the Packers Hall of Fame have listened to the team's fans on this one.

How Brett Favre Could be Partially to Blame for the Seahawks Losing Super Bowl XLIX

Stay with me, because I’m pretty sure the following logic checks out. Every bad decision has a cause, and sometimes you need to dig a little to get to the root. Some people have spent the last week blaming Darrell Bevell for what is being called the single worst play-call in Super Bowl history.  But Bevell, the offensive coordinator for the Seahawks, actually got his NFL career started in Green Bay as a wet-nosed offensive assistant in 2000.  And that’s where the true cause of yesterday’s head-scratching play was set into motion. Well, maybe. The Green Bay job was a coming home...

Vito Stellino: Tony Boselli deserves a bust in the Hall of Fame

Vito Stellino: Tony Boselli deserves a bust in the Hall of Fame

Of the 11 offensive players on the NFL’s all decade team of the 1990s, ten are in the Hall of Fame. The one player who not only hasn’t been elected but hasn’t even made the final 15 is the Jaguars’ Tony Boselli. When the newest class was elected last Saturday, Boselli wasn’t in the conversation because he hasn’t made the final 15. Five members on the second team of the all decade team of the 1990s are in the Hall and Brett Favre will soon be the sixth but Boselli is on the outside looking in. read more

Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for February 3, 2015

We look to a pair of Packers legends who will be inducted into different Halls of Fame this summer. With the offseason upon us, we find ourselves looking both backwards into the relatively recent past and forwards to this summer in today's cheese curds. In a few months, two Packers legends will be going into Halls of Fame within a few weeks of each other, and those two men are inextricably linked to each other. Of course, I am referring to Ron Wolf, architect of the 1990s Packers, and the quarterback he so desperately wanted, Brett Favre. While one enters the Pro Football Hall of Fame this...
