Given the fact that so much news has come out about the Packers today, I thought I would give you quick glimpses of various sites carrying different stories about the team today.
The first, of course has to be about Brett Favre. Though it’s a story basically about nothing, we figured it should be the top story, just because it has Brett’s name attached to it.
Here ya go:
HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Brett Favre says that while his playing days are definitely over, he hasn’t decided what he’s going to do with himself in the coming years.He said he has enjoyed staying around Southern Miss but has “no plans right now and we’ll see where that takes me.”
Tom O’Malley, who carries a rather unusual record for the Packers died today. Even Brett Favre equaled this guy’s record, and came close on other occasions.
For the record
Green Bay Packers quarterbacks have thrown five interceptions in a regular-season game eight times, the last time by Brett Favre in a 21-14 loss at Cincinnati on Oct. 30, 2005.
Favre threw six interceptions during a 45-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams in an NFC divisional playoff game in St. Louis on Jan. 20, 2002.
And here’s some good news coming out of the Packers Hall of Fame. Recognizing the entire team is a good thing and the honor for Bulaga is also very cool.
The Green Bay Packers capped off an impressive postseason run with a victory in Super Bowl XLV over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the team’s 13th world championship and fourth Super Bowl title. Overcoming a challenging season that saw 15 players land on injured reserve, the team remained resilient and became just the third 10-6 team in NFL history to win a Super Bowl. With dominating playmakers on both sides of the ball, for the second straight year Green Bay was one of four teams in the NFL to have both the offense (No. 9) and defense (No. 5) rank among the league’s top 10.
Last week, Wolf, at the age of 29, was promoted to the job of assistant director of player personnel by the Green Bay Packers, the team his father built into a Super Bowl champion more than a decade ago.
Calling the 2010 season for the Packers “Injury Plagued” would be an understatement. Training Camp would be our first preview of many key players returning from a season cut short be injuries. Many young players filled those roles and are poised to battle for a starting position.
