Slice of Cheese for 1/26

New, comments

Anybody in the mood for some cheese? Well, here's your friendly reminder that happy cows most definitely do not come from California.

The Journal-Sentinel is reporting that former Broncos' defensive coordinator Mike Nolan was offered the Packers' DC job before Dom Capers was hired. Nolan is an excellent DC who struggled as a head coach, and I think he would have done well in Green Bay, but I doubt anyone else would have turned the defense around as quickly as Capers did.

Greg Bedard gives a few thoughts on the second day of practice at the Senior Bowl.

Clay Matthews has been nominated for the NFL Rookie of the Year award. As far as I can tell, this is just a fan vote, to get out there and support the Claymaker!

While the Packers weren't playing football this weekend, the fans scored an 8th-consecutive title in the Campbell's Click for Cans competition by more than doubling the Jaguars' votes. Congratulations to Packers fans everywhere, as Wisconsin food pantries will receive a helping hand from Campbell's.

If you haven't had your fill of schadenfreude yet, the Press-Gazette has video of Vikings fans at a bar in the Twin Cities area.

Proof that Wisconsin's greatness doesn't just lie in its food, beer, and sports teams, native Wisconsinite Brooklyn Wolosyn won the national Punt, Pass, & Kick competition in the 10-11 year old girls category.

Surprise, surprise...Brad Childress didn't set a deadline for Brett Favre. As if we didn't already know who wore the pants in that relationship, here's the latest bit of evidence.

In case you missed it, the Packers are raising ticket prices.

Paul Kuharsky of ESPN points out the problem with the Pro Bowl. When half of a conference's starting players are on an all-star team, is it still an "all-star" team?

ESPN's NFC North blogger Kevin Seifert needs assistance for deciding on his 2009 All-Division team. It says something about the division when he can only decide on 11 out of the 27 players without debate. Whether that something has to do with the competitiveness of the division or Seifert's inability to make arguments or decisions is left for you to decide.

That's all for tonight. It's homework time. It's Tuesday night, I have no date...I've got my two-liter of Shasta and my all-Rush mix tape...let's rock!
