Packers Playoff

Usually, when the Green Bay Packer get embarrassed on national television like they did on Sunday night by the Philadelphia Eagles, I’m pretty upset. This time? Not so much. Sure, watching the defense get TRUCKED for 500 yards (363 on the ground) was annoying but it (along with getting torched by RYAN FREAKING TANNEHILL the week before) probably was the beginning of the end for Joe Barry as Defensive Coordinator in Titletown. ALSO – the running game looked GREAT (when utilized) and we all saw a totally different Jordan Love in the 2nd half after Aaron Rodgers left with multiple…

AJ Dillon and Aaron Jones

I’ve never been happier to see the Green Bay Packers win a game in early November than week 10 vs the Dallas Cowboys. The only thing that makes me happier? The WAY they won. 20 passes for Aaron Rodgers. That’s it. He wasn’t knocked out of the game or pulled due to poor performance. It was simply this: THE GREEN BAY PACKERS RAN THE BALL and won the game. I was thrilled. If only they had done this against the Giants…or the Jets…or the Commanders…or the Lions. I hope whatever light went on last week in practice or in meetings…

“Is this what it’s like to be a Bears fan”? That’s what I asked my neighbor after the Packers 15-9 loss to the Lions. (I still can’t believe I just wrote that score.) I haven’t felt this way before, this early in November. This HAS to be what Bears fans have felt most of the last 30+ years. Your team is way out in the standings and there’s NOTHING they can do to fix the problems. The Packers season is over (for all championship intents and purposes). They were 3-1 and up 20-10 in game 5 of the year. Since…

Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love, quarterbacks of the Green Bay Packers

NOTE: LISTEN TO MY PODCAST BEFORE YOU TRASH ME. #LongGame It’s hard to fathom that after a 3-1 start, the Green Bay Packers are now 3-4. To make things worse, nothing looks “right” on offense, Aaron Rodgers is throwing everyone under the bus and now here comes the TOUGHEST part of the Packers schedule. There’s lots of blame to toss around and I make sure to discuss all of that on this week’s podcast but for me it starts with two guys: The Head Coach and the Quarterback. Rodgers says he’s “troubled” by his injured right thumb on “a couple…

I’m not gonna lie…there’s real trouble brewing in Green Bay. There are LOTS of problems with this Packers team right now. It’s not just one guy or one unit or one coach. It’s all over. And after watching them lose to the New York Jets in the least enjoyable Packers game of the Aaron Rodgers era, it’s apparent to me: The 2022 Green Bay Packers have hit ROCK BOTTOM. I can only HOPE that it doesn’t get any worse than this. Choosing NOT to take the bye week after the London game was pure disrespect to the Jets. THIS roster…

Adams has nursed an ankle injury all week. Is he in or out?

Ask Green Bay Packers fans, I think MOST of us still root for Davante Adams. I know I do. On this week’s Wickett ON Wisconsin podcast, I discussed the pushing incident that happened on Monday night after the Las Vegas Raiders lost to the Kansas City Chiefs. Honestly, I felt a little ill. I was Ill because we all knew what we saw and we all know THAT isn’t Davante. And in the few days after he pushed a member of the media to the ground, we now know along with a fine and a suspension from the NFL, Adams…

What can you say after losing a 10 point lead to a team you were favored (by 8) to beat? What can you say about  a defense that comes in like a limp noodle & once again makes ZERO adjustments to a simple gameplan? What can you say about an offense that seems to fix what isn’t broke? What can you say about ZERO inspiration coming from a head coach who sounds like a cliché-filled skipping record after another loss that falls directly at his feet? What can you say about a quarterback who’s being paid like he’s the MVP…

On this week’s Wickett ON Wisconsin podcast, I had to discuss 2 things: The Packers & that win (it WAS a win) over New England and the firing of Paul Chryst.  Both of these were shocking. Green Bay shouldn’t be in a game THAT CLOSE vs a 3rd string, ROOKIE quarterback AT LAMBEAU FIELD…but you know what? It’s the NFL and NOTHING is certain. Green Bay is now 3-1, the defense looks championship caliber (at least the pass defense does) and the offense is improving (just not that 1st half of deep balls from Aaron Rodgers). Even MORE shocking than…

If you know me, you know I’m a fan first. I watch Green Bay Packers games just like you. I see what I see just like you see what you see. I have opinions, just like you do. What I DON’T do (mostly because I have 3 toddlers and don’t have the time), is watch hours and hours of film. I wish I did. Enter: my teammate here at Wisconsin Sports Heroics, Sam Holman. Sam is our resident film nerd and he joined me for the podcast this week to discuss what HE sees after 3 games for the Packers.…

Aaron Rodgers

As you’ve heard me say before, I’m not freaking out early in the Packers season. With all of those questions that I discussed on last week’s podcast still lingering, I’ll admit I was SLIGHTLY worried going into the Bears game this week. And I may have gotten “antsy” after the Packers settled for 3 and then watched Chicago march right down the field for a touchdown early in the game. Then, all of a sudden, I wasn’t. Why? Because something may have clicked for this team that I’ve been hoping to see (and maybe yelling about about) since Davante Adams got…
