Just like old (sad) times: Buccaneers double-digit home underdogs vs. Packers

Given the franchise’s many losing seasons, the Buccaneers being 12-point home underdogs to Green Bay on Sunday probably doesn’t rank as an all-time indignity for Tampa Bay. That said, the Buccaneers haven’t often been home underdogs of this many points. According to point spread records kept by Spreadapedia.com, the Buccaneers have only been home underdogs…

No current contract talks for Randall Cobb, Packers

Before the season started, the Packers locked up wide receiver Jordy Nelson through 2018 before he could become a free agent. Wide receiver Randall Cobb is also headed for free agency when the year comes to an end, but he didn’t get a new deal from the team. It doesn’t sound like one is forthcoming,…

Eddie Lacy can’t see himself wearing goggles

Eddie Lacy can’t really see. But he can’t see himself looking like Eric Dickerson either. The Packers running back is having problems with his contact lenses, and was limited in practice the last two days because of an irritated eye. Lacy’s eye started bothering him when he wore his contacts past their normal 30-day shelf…

PFT’s Week 16 picks

All MDS wanted was a chance.  Maybe he should have been more careful about what he wished for. Down five games with 32 games left and his ability to close the gap hinging on the existence of enough disagreements between the two of us, we disagree on five games this week. So, in theory, he…

Thursday morning one-liners

The Bills’ offensive line has room for improvement. The Dolphins got four injured LBs back to practice, but it’s unclear if they’ll all be available. Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski. Sausage. Write your own punch line. Former Jets CB Darrelle Revis said “It’s kind of sad” the way coach Rex Ryan is going out. Ravens TE…

Bryan Bulaga “looks great” after Sunday’s concussion

The Packers had a devil of a time keeping the Bills defensive line from harassing Aaron Rodgers during last Sunday’s loss in Buffalo, something that wasn’t helped by the loss of right tackle Bryan Bulaga to a concussion during the game. Bulaga’s absence was particularly notable on a late sack by Bills defensive end Mario…

Chip Kelly: If we win 11 games and miss playoffs, shame on us

The NFL changes a lot from year to year, something that the Eagles could learn the hard way this season. In 2013, the Eagles won 10 games and that was enough to make them NFC East champions and hosts of a home game in the playoffs. This year, the Eagles could wind up with 11…

But despite their divisional rivalry, Rodgers said he’s upset about what Cutler has been through in recent weeks. Speaking specifically about Cutler being the victim of an unnamed source (who later named himself) ripping him to an NFL Network reporter, Rodgers…

Wednesday morning one-liners

Could the Bills be interested in trading for Jay Cutler in the offseason? Talk persists that Dolphins coach Joe Philbin’s job is in jeopardy.

Aaron Rodgers moving on from “rough one” against Bills

Earlier this season, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers used his Tuesday radio show as an opportunity to tell everyone worried about the Packers Offense to relax. That proved to be the right message because he and the rest of the offense were about to catch fire and they’d remain hot for weeks. The first real chill…
