    Clay Matthews Tweeted a picture of himself Wednesday.

    No, not one of ‘those’ pictures. The pro bowl linebacker posted a picture of himself signing a contract extension with the Green Bay Packers.

    The Green Bay Packers schedule came out Thursday.

    It looks as though the Packers have a real shot at history.

    They could be the first team to go 6-10 on the season ... and make the playoffs?

    Yes, a postseason wrapup ... before the season is over. Because, for the Milwaukee Bucks, the season, and the posteason, is over.

    The formula for the the Bucks to get by the first round of the NBA Playoffs is simple.

    Throw away a couple of seasons to get into the draft lottery.

    Draft players like Tobias Harris and don’t trade them for players with expiring contracts.

    Get a top seed in the playoffs. Don’t play LeBron James.

    Oh, and don’t have Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis running the ‘show.’

    The real NBA season begins and the storylines are nearly endless.

    There are a couple of first-round flops, but, for the most part, every matchup provides some intrigue.

    Here’s a look, starting with the best … and the worst:

    Should Packers Draft O-Line

    The NFL draft gets under way at 7 p.m. tonight.

    It’s easy to think about the Green Bay Packers last couple of seasons and know where things went wrong: Defense, defense, defense.

    Things are going to get ugly. They’re already that way, but that’s the NBA playoffs - Hard fouls, awful shooting. In other words: Defensive.

    And it’s only going to get worse – or better.

    Three outliers remain in the equation that will win an NBA championship – a defensive equation.

    It’s settled, the Minnesota Vikings are getting a new stadium ... again.

    An indoor stadium. To play football. Indoors.

    A stadium that looks like the Jawas’ Sandcrawler from the original Star Wars.

    I have all kinds of problems with this and stadiums in general.
