Cheesehead TV at the Super Bowl

Cheesehead TV at the Super Bowl

If I may so bold as to say, as one of the best independent team football blogs on the Internet, Cheesehead TV is happy to provide our readers coverage from the site of the Super Bowl in New York City (and New Jersey) this week.

Coming on the heels of Andrew Garda's terrific coverage from the Senior Bowl last week, I'm on my way to the Big Apple to report on the events leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.

For all the attention that a cold-weather Super Bowl is getting, it's going to feel downright balmy compared to Wisconsin where Monday's high temperature is is predicted to be minus-five degrees and wind chills as low as minus-50 (at least where I live), according to the Weather Channel.

We've got a bunch of good stories and blog posts planned for this week, including items on former Packers playing in the big game and the job former Green Bay executive John Schneider is doing as general manager of the Seahawks.

I'm also really excited that our own Corey Behnke and Aaron Nagler will be at the Super Bowl breakfast on Friday where quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be honored with the annual Bart Starr Award for exemplary character and leadership on and off the field. The photo opportunity alone with both Starr and Rodgers will be something we display proudly here at Cheesehead TV.

With Monday being a travel day, I don't know how much coverage we'll have immediately, but we'll ramp things up on Tuesday when the always-crazy Media Day will be held.

When I check in next, it will be from The City That Never Sleeps.

Anyone else get the feeling TT would choose death over signing an impact FA?

I don't think he has one thought about it. You have to have money to do that and he has none.
I also think he navigates away from high priced players in the draft too. I love Vic Ketchums analysis - and I don't always agree with his philosophy, but he says GB is a 3-4 team and loves Dom because he is a 3-4 coach.
The 3-4 defense allows a team to avoid having to draft top defensive ends who are commanding huge dollars these days.
So are top safeties, so my guess is Ted will take an O lineman or TE in the first and wait until the 3 or later rounds for a Safety.
Just sayin.
My assumption is strickly based on the money factor and Ted won't backload contracts.

"You have to have money to do that and he has none."

How so?

"The 3-4 defense allows a team to avoid having to draft top defensive ends who are commanding huge dollars these days."

So a R1 DE drafted at 21 will get a bigger rookie contract than LT or TE or OLB? Again, how so?

Have a good trip, Brian!

Cow,

I think TT would sign an impact free agent but only at his price - can he get value for spending a ton of money on a player whose performance will always be a 'guess' until they actually play for you?

History has proven in a high % of the cases, you pay a ton for a free agent and the results are 1) he doesn't perform as expected, 2) you upset your salary cap with a mediocre player, 3) you create resent in the locker room because you paid an outsider money that you could have paid an existing player.

Yes, you can sign a White or a Woodson or a Pickett . . . but their success is the anomaly, odds are you will probably get a Johnson.

And it hurts that Green Bay is not the ultimate destination for a young man in his 20's and usually the place of last resort. So they use the GBP's offer as a ploy to get a better contract elsewhere.

I'm not against free agency but I'd prefer mid-level offerings that don't break the bank - it's up to the Pro-side to find those players. To wholly say "IMPACT" players are the answer is in my opinion not worth the gamble (in most cases).

"odds are you will probably get a Johnson."

I know who you are talking about, but this made me laugh none-the-less.

If he does get a FA it will probably be someone we never heard of. Enjoy New Jersey! been there in the winter, not interested in returning. If you are looking for beer you have to go to a liqueur store. When I was there working over a Super Bowl weekend I had to go to Philly to purchase because the stores were closed!

Anyone else get the feeling cLowNEY42 would choose death over posting something relevant or, god forbid, respectful of the post he's commenting on?

i would, but my guess is that he's not the suicide-type downer - mainly because non-existence hinders your ability to keep bitching and moaning.

Spectacular.
Cow would probably be quite skilled at and not at all out of place being a ghost.

notes from "cheeseheadtv, the animated series:"

halfway through the 4th season, "cow" hangs himself with a Packers tie after another playoff loss. In following seasons, his spirit makes frequent cameo appearances as a transparent moaning packer fan with a pin-on tail, cropping up whenever anything goes wrong with the team to offer his comments, or simply as a ghostly voice whispering "6-10... at best" whenever anything looks promising.

Cogently put.
