Sports – Monday, January 14th, 2013
The Packers are still stinging from their 45-31 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night. The players had the task of cleaning out their lockers on Sunday and starting to think about 2013. For some like Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, and Jermichael Finley, they are not sure if they’ll be back in Green Bay next season. After the Packer defense was blown out of the postseason the last two season’s the fate of defensive coordinator Dom Capers is also in question. Talk Packer football one last time tonight at 6pm on KFIZ during In The Huddle with Bill Scott and Packer tight end DJ Williams.
The NFL’s final four is set. Atlanta blew a 27-7 lead in the fourth quarter but Matt Bryant’s 49 yard field goal with :08 seconds left won it 30-28. Russell Wilson threw for 385 yards and 2 TDs in the loss. He also ran for a TD. The Falcons will host San Francisco next Sunday in the NFC Championship Game. The New England Patriots will host the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship Game next Sunday. The Pats beat Houston 41-29. Tom Brady threw for 344 yards and 3 TDs in the win. You’ll hear both the NFC and AFC Championships on News-Talk 1450 KFIZ.
The Packers lost another one of Ted Thompson’s key figures in the front office. John Dorsey has been hired as the new general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs. Dorsey has a relationship with new Chiefs head coach Andy Ried. Both were with the Packers during the Mike Holmgren era. Last offseason, Reggie McKenzie left the Packers to become the Raiders GM.
The Milwaukee Bucks rallied from 20 points down to beat the Toronto Raptors 107-96 on Sunday afternoon. John Henson and Brandon Jennings each scored 19 points for Milwaukee who improves to 19-17 on the season.
