Thursday Thoughts: 2021 Schedule

It’s hard to predict in May how an NFL schedule will play out in November, but the Packers’ road to the Super Bowl sure looks daunting – even with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback. If you assume it’ll take at least…

Summer Of The Disgruntled QB II

From the team that brought you Summer of the Disgruntled QB comes the sequel every fan of the Bears and Vikings has been waiting for, Summer of the Disgruntled QB II. It may be 13 years later, but don’t worry,…
