I think the skills competition would be fun to watch, I used to like watching those back in the day with Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees etc. competing. Glad they're getting rid of that pathetic pro-bowl game, could even do without the flag football game, honestly.

I agree, it's been talked about a lot on ESPN and even here locally in metro Detroit on sports talk radio but this is something that should even be covered by news networks, IMO. Stealing from the state's welfare fund, the money allocated for the poorest in our communities. Disgusting. For a damn volleyball facility at a lower level FBS school?

He couldn't have used the millions he made playing football or the thousands, if not millions, he's currently making in endorsements? Such a bad look.
The Favre story isn't getting the attention that it should be getting and somehow the people actually paying attention to it keep peeling back the onion more and more by the day.

pretty interesting/funny article

my favorite part is about 3/4 through where one owner pretty much says all the other owners would be willing to forgive dan for EVERYTHING if he would just build a new stadium.

TNF is garbage. I Don't care how it gets streamed or who is playing. It's a bad product, it's been a bad product for years and they need to do away with it.

The better football last night was WVU/Baylor and it wasn't even close. I hope the ratings reflected it. Leave TNF for college, maybe the NCAA would start allocating quality match ups to it if they knew they weren't "competing" with the NFL, if you can even call the past few weeks professional football.

Aaron Rodgers is a double digit underdog for the first time in his career.

I'm enjoying seeing Rodgers and Brady demise. Brady coming out of retirement for this is a thing of beauty, and Rodgers staying in Green Bay for this is also fun as hell to watch.

He still owns your Bears, though.

Yet they're both 3-4 right now
Is that a point of pride for a Bears fan, to have the same record as a below .500 Packers squad?

They're (Packers) a bad football team, man. That offense is so lackluster, seems to be a lot of that going on around here....lol

I wouldn't call it a point of anything other than simple math.

They played in Green Bay earlier this year and lost. They'll see them again in December. For as bad as the Bears have been, Aaron Rodgers is getting an awful lot of money to have a dog meat attitude and not win playoff games. He's starting to look like a guy who isn't the best teammate either, because despite their struggles he's struggling along with the other guys around him too. I think most thought he was going to leave. I don't know if it was money that prompted him to stay or just the comfort of continuing to win against Chicago and Detroit since he's built a Canton-bound career on it.

The Bears had a 13-3 Division winner that lost to the Packers twice. I get the meatball brigade here in Chicago that would go 2-14 with two wins against Green Bay....actually, I don't get them. Those people are jack wagon morons. I could care less if the Bears won a Super Bowl again having lost to the Packers twice. I don't care what scheme they run either. Similar to ND. I'd like to see another championship from either or both as an adult.

Green Bay is the standard in the NFC North, but the Bears need to focus on winning their division, which ultimately goes through Green Bay and probably requires a split of the two game set. That's the only place the bar can be right now since they've been as bad as they've been for so long.

When your team isn't doing great, it's always nice to see a rival doing just as bad. Green Bay is supposed to have a better team, so it makes it extra nice.

The season is also still in progress. GB losing 3 in a row with an out of nowhere Bears win in New England has them both at 3-4. There is a lot of football left.

NFC looks pretty open right now.

I never believed he was going to finish his career anywhere other than GB, because up until the post-2020 "drama," which was pure gas-lighting journalism by the likes of Adam Schefter, he never said he intended to do anything other than that, retire a Packer.

The playoff struggles have been pretty maddening, but it doesn't all fall on Rodgers. He hasn't had a top 10 defense since their Super Bowl run in 2011; It's hard to win in the NFL simply by outscoring opponents. It can be done, but to rely solely on one side of the ball to make a 3-4 game run through the playoffs? Not a great strategy.

Last year, he did have a top 10 defense and I will put a lot of the loss against SF in the divisional round on 12. But to pin all the blame on Rodgers is just lazy analysis.

It does always crack me up when opposing fans (not you) of the NFC North say: "You had 30 years of hall of fame QB play and ONLY two rings to show for it." My retort: That's more Super Bowl rings than the rest of the NFC North Division combined. With almost 6 decades in the Super Bowl era.

It's hard to win in this league, especially a Super Bowl. A lot of things have to go right not just to make the playoffs, but then to beat 3-4 teams in a row who are just as good, if not just-marginally worse than you, that's not an easy task.

The list of QBs who have more than one ring is a very exclusive club. Rodgers is one of the best to ever do it and I blame a lot of his lack of a second ring on the front office, not his supposed "playoff struggles" as if that's solely his fault.

No one is touching the Vikings in that division. Don't even get your hopes up, lol

oh 100%. I still fully expect GB to have a better record than Chicago in the end. However, it's always a good day when Green Bay loses in my book.

Would you rather have Favre at his prime or Rodgers at his prime?

Rodgers, and it's not even close, honestly. Favre had a lot more talent to work with for the duration of his career than Rodgers. It's actually quite embarrassing how poorly the front office has done to help him out, and quite astonishing that he was able to win back to back MVPs with basically only Adams to work with the past two seasons.

Yeah. Not a terribly difficult concept to grasp in terms of what fandom is. If I can't enjoy my team beating them, I'll enjoy it when others do.
