  • There was no winner in Sunday's preseason game; Packers and Steelers both lost.

    in Sports

    Jordy Nelson and Maurkice Pouncey both suffered major injuries, in Sunday's preseason game, between the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers.  The debate about the NFL preseason has been going on for years. The tradition has been four games, to prepare and evaluate players.  Times have changed, and many people believe that the NFL should reduce the pre-season, and add games to the regular season. 


    Jordy Nelson and Kelvin Benjamin both sustained non-contact knee injuries, this past week.  Maurkice Pouncey suffered a broken ankle. In the case of Nelson and Benjamin, both injuries happened when planting.  This injury could have occured at any time.  Pouncey was playing in a third of five pre-season games, that the Steelers have this year. Can you blame it on the number of pre-season games?


    Hypothetically, if the NFL were to reduce the preseason to two games, and make the regular season 18 games, would it have prevented these injuries?  At some point, the length of the season will come into play.  In this case, maybe it would have been the season opener, for the PIttsburgh Steelers.  Rewind to September 8, 2013. Pouncey was carted off the field with a knee injury.  This was the opening game of the season, and was injured in the first quarter.  Injuries can occur at anytime, contact or no contact.  The only true argument, the injury occured in a game that meant something.  Listen in or call the show with your thoughts.

  • Packers Therapy -- Episode 254 -- The Power of 11

    in Football

    Chris and Dave are back for their 11th season of Packers Therapy, launching it by commenting on the Packers doubling up the New England Patriots in the preseason opener. The gents share things that pleased them, disappointed them, and surprised them in the 22-11 victory. They are pretty much in sync in their views, except when it comes to Scott Tolzein and Alonzo Harris.


    -------------------


    Posting its first show in 2005, Packers Therapy is the longest-running Packers podcast on the Internet. Hosts Chris and Dave began the show as a way of capturing the spirited chats the two co-workers had about the team around the office. The two have no pretense about being experts: they are just two opinionated shareholders who love the team, follow it closely, but don't always see the Packers fortunes eye to eye.


    The guys encourage comments and questions via their Twitter feed @PackersTherapy and read and respond to as many as they can during each show.


    Packers Therapy is a part of the Packers Talk, family of podcasts, serving up enough weekly podcasts to satisfy the most fervent of Packer fans. Follow Packers Talk on Twitter, Facebook, and subscribe over at iTunes.

    NFC North ~ NFL preview; which team has enough firepower to overtake the Packers

    in Sports

    Aaron Rodgers has led the Green Bay Packers to six consecutive playoff appearances.  The Packers were on the brink of going to the Super Bowl, in 2014.  They finished last season with the top scoring offense by averaging 30.4 points per game.  The were set to return all 11 starters, until Jordy Nelson tore his ACL.  Nelson will not return this season.  Green Bay has developed wide receivers, for a number of years.  Do you think the loss of Nelson will end the Packers streak of four division titles, in a row?


    After a disappointing 5-11 season, Marc Trestman was fired as the Chicago Bears coach.  Brandon Marshall was traded to the New York Jets, and Jay Cutler remains the starting quarterback. All John Fox did in Denver was win.  He was 46-18, but after failing to go back to the Super Bowl, Fox and John Elway decided to make a change.  It didn't take long for the Bears to hire Fox.  There are many things that need to get better for the Bears.  The question every season is "Can Jay Cutler lead this team to the Super Bowl?" For the quarterback to be succesful, it starts with an offensive line. This unit must stay healthy and improve to give cutler time.  Jeffery Alshon will assume the number one receiver role.  Can he keep producing now that Marshall is gone?  Matt Forte has been a consistent all around back who can run and catch the ball.  What will the Bears do on defense to slow down the offensive units, in the NFC North?


    JIm Caldwell took over a disorganized Detroit Lions, and led them to the playoffs, in 2014.  The Lions have a potent passing attack with Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate.  There are two issues on offense.  They do not have a work horse running back, that can take the ball at anytime. Matthew Stafford need to cut down on his turnovers.
