It has been almost 30 years since the Green Bay Packers outfitted an official cheerleading squad in contemporary attire.

"I think our fans are unique in that they don't need a big circus atmosphere," said tight end Ryan Taylor. "Because they're football purists and enjoy the game as is."

There you go.

A couple of years ago one of the college girls was just a little plump. I had to smile. Only in GB could a girl who has probably been teased her whole life stand on one of the biggest stages of the NFL and cheer. Ok not on stage. they are only on the sidelines and an the back of the endzone.

Best Name of a Cheerleader Group: the Rams group was called the Embraceable Ewes.

I suppose we could call ours the Packers Porkers.

for some reason that just doesn't put the same pleasant image in my head as "Embraceable Ewes"


I've got a couple of Old Style beer posters from 1985 and 1986 of the Packers cheerleaders and while they certainly are not porkers they don't don't look much like the squads of today. Most of them look to be in their 30's and 40's and there is even one that looks to be at least 50.

Five NFL teams besides the Green Bay Packers have no official cheerleading squads.

CHICAGO, CLEVELAND, DETROIT, NEW YORK GIANTS, PITTSBURGH:


Is this more proof that the Vikings have to pay the ladies to stick around?

I read the article on CBS and left this reply ...

"Please leave it the way it is. The college cheerleaders are much more fitting for Green Bay. The teams like Cowboys, Raiders, Dolphins and Vikings need professional cheerleaders (dance troupe) to distract from the less than adequate product that they put on the field. As W. C. Fields said ... "If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bull." "

"The Packers are doing just fine."

So why did the cowboys have cheerleaders when they were winning super bowls? Same with the Dolphins, Raiders and vik... same with the Dolphins and Raiders.

It may be appropriate now but it has not always been the case. Except for the vikings, it has always been more pleasant to watch the vikings cheerleaders.

All those teams have either nice weather or indoor stadiums. GB does not.

GoPack1984 (2h) : Dismal season? I think that's too harsh.
uffda udfa (2h) : Packers should have never been 4-6. Dismal season.
GoPack1984 (2h) : ...with the current defense.
GoPack1984 (2h) : Good season. Great rebound from 4-6. Would have loved to have seen them go to the Super Bowl and win, but I don't know if that was realistic
uffda udfa (2h) : •thanks Shakespeare.
The_Green_Ninja (2h) : Mike at the end of the day is with the team every day and knows what is needed and not needed. Don't be surprised if Mike helps push the cha

uffda udfa (2h) : It won't change until Ted is gone. I await that day with baited breath.
uffda udfa (2h) : Nobody has ever lost a championship game by as big of a margin as us. Title Town revolt.
uffda udfa (2h) : Did I hear wrong or was that the biggest beatdown in championship game history? Nice.
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : ndedly fill in all the holes on the roster.
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : I do get the same sort of complacent vibe from the Packers front office that cost Bill Polian his job. You can't rely on the QB to single-ha
The_Green_Ninja (2h) : Thomas Brady has been given tools his whole career. It's up to the Packers to start doing the same.
The_Green_Ninja (3h) : As much as I loved brett, Aaron is right. We need more tools and HE is the QB that deserves the tools

shield4life (3h) : Blame the coaching
The_Green_Ninja (3h) : This is near the same time Brett started saying the same stuff.
uffda udfa (3h) : That is exactly what Aaron is saying. We don't do what needs to be done to win. Same song over and over.
uffda udfa (3h) : Aaron is a troll and a hater and doesn't understand the game. Who is he to say such things?
Zero2Cool (3h) : Probably reading into it wrong, but I think he's saying to front office. Do. More!
Zero2Cool (3h) : Rodgers says "We just gotta make sure we're going all-in every year to win....we can take a big step this off-season"

uffda udfa (4h) : All credit to ATL. Not a word about needing to get better.
Zero2Cool (4h) : Ran out of talent, something we didn't have a plethora of on defense (my opinion)
uffda udfa (4h) : MM: Ran out of gas but proud of his guys.
