  • Key NFL offseason dates

    The end of the Packers 2013 season means the 2014 offseason begins. Here's a few key offseason dates to remember:

  • More on the Packers 2014 NFL Draft

    The top 24 spots are set for the 2014 NFL Draft order with the Packers holding the 21st pick. The Packers also currently hold all seven of their original picks for the 2014 Draft and they will likely receive two compensatory pick for the free agency losses of Greg Jennings and Erik Walden. The NFL keeps a very tight lid on the formula used for calculating the compensatory picks so it's hard to gauge what the compensation will be. This is pure speculation on my part but I could the Packers getting a fourth round pick for Jennings and a sixth rounder for Walden.

  • Packers hold 21st pick in 2014 NFL Draft

    The 2013 season is over for Green Bay after the 23-20 Wild Card loss to San Francisco. While four teams are moving on three other teams including the Packers will begin the 2014 offseason. Here's the updated NFL Draft order after Wild Card Weekend:

  • The 12 days of football: Friday night fireworks

    We've got two quality games on the schedule tonight and there should be plenty of offensive fireworks in both the Cotton Bowl and Orange Bowl.

  • Ranking the remaining bowls by its BW3's sauce equivalent

    After watching the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl over the weekend I can't seem to get hot wings out of my head. Apparently it's the same with our producer Ben "Bear" Bryan who noted that there are 16 bowls left and BW3 has 16 different wing sauces. So in the spirit of wings and football here's a viewing guide to the remaining bowls based on how they would taste:

  • 2014 NFL Draft order

    12 teams are still playing but for the 20 non-playoff teams the offseason begins. Here's how the draft order looks as the playoffs begin:

  • Packers 2014 opponents

    With the 2013 regular season in the books the 2014 opponents have been set:

  • Week 17 AFC playoff picture

    6:17 p.m. Looks like the seeding is in place with Denver up big and New England leading. If it holds here are the seeds:

  • The 12 days of football: Saturday four pack

    We move into the meaty part of the bowl season with a Saturday quadruple header. It starts with Notre Dame and Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl. The inconsistent Irish have talent upfront on both sides with Zack Martin on the offensive line. On the other side junior end Stephon Tuitt helps anchor the defensive line and will make his NFL Draft decision after Saturday. Rutgers was equally inconsistent, starting the year 4-1 before dropping five of their next six. A win over South Florida on December gave the Scarlet Knights bowl eligibility.

  • The 12 days of football: Friday tripleheader

    Welcome to the final Friday of 2013 and with it comes three games on the bowl schedule. First up the Military Bowl between Marshall and Maryland. The Terps started hot with four straight wins then ended the season winning two of the last three, including a road overtime win over Virginia Tech. Marshall, an under-the-radar Conference USA squad, boasts one of the best offensive units in the country. The Thundering Herd average 43 points per game but are coming off a season-low 24 against Rice in the Conference USA championship game.

  • 2014 NFL Draft order

    While there's plenty of drama surrounding the NFL playoff picture there is just as much intrigue into what the draft order will look like as we head into the final week of the season. It's interesting to note that St. Louis can hold the overall #1 pick despite the potential to finish 8-8. The Packers could pick as high as 12th if they lose Sunday. A win means they pick no better than at least 21st.
