Audibles From the Long Snapper

So You Don’t Like Jerry Angelo? Say what you will about his inability to locate good offensive linemen in the NFL draft, it’s impossible not to appreciate Angelo’s lengthy comments about the CBA discord that is dominating the league’s news cycles. “This game is special.

Packers at Bears NFC Championship Preview

I won’t sleep Saturday night and I might not sleep Friday night without the aid of my old friend Ethyl Alcohol.  If this were the Falcons on the opposing sideline, the Saints…who knows?  But it is the Green Bay Packers, the oldest rival of our beloved franchise, and I can’t stomach the notion of Aaron...
