The Packers began on-field preparation for the Atlanta Falcons Wednesday in Green Bay. As expected, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was a limited participant, and Matt Flynn took reps as the starter. After a perfect October, the Packers went winless in the month of November. In order to make the playoffs, they will likely need to win all four December games, and hope the Detroit Lions lose two of their final four.

At long last Alabama has been knocked off of their lofty perch and we're down to two unbeaten national championship contenders. However, with Auburn's win over the Tide a debate has begun over who should be #2. Personally, I think the polls have it right. Certainly the SEC is still the best conference in the country (although it looks a lot more top-heavy than it has in previous years.) But going 12-0 in a power conference, regardless of strength of conference, is nothing to sneeze at. And an unbeaten Big 10 team should be ranked higher than a one-loss SEC team, even if that team knocked off #1.
We are just over one month into the NBA season and one thing appears crystal clear: The Milwaukee Bucks will be a lottery team. With a record of 3-13, the Bucks are tied with the NY Knicks for the worst record in the eastern conference. Injuries (both on and off the court), lack of star power, and adjusting to a new coach and system have proven too much for the Bucks to overcome in the early going.
Never a good sign when your head coach is running down the sideline on an unusually warm November afternoon like a mad man, screaming at one official while another zebra has his arms upright and an opposing receiver is clutching the football in the end zone.
