It’s taken me a while to get to this, but now it’s time to lay into the joke in the NFC North not named the Minnesota Vikings — the Chicago Bears. Actually, it’s not the Bears whole organization that’s a joke, it’s general manager Jerry Angelo, which should come as a surprise to no one. If you watched the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, you saw Angelo’s ineptitude in action, although you probably couldn’t tell what was really going on.

It case you couldn’t hear the groans coming from the west, the Minnesota Vikings selected Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Some might say the pick was a reach, and I’d be one of those people, but the Vikings were desperate for a young quarterback and quarterbacks were quickly disappearing at that point in the draft. Gone were Cam Newton (No. 1), Jake Locker (No. 8) and Blaine Gabbert (No. 10).

It’s true. We took the seventh round of the NFL Draft off. Just couldn’t take it anymore. The Green Bay Packers didn’t, however. So, even though it’s overdue, here’s a quick look at the Packers seventh-round picks in the 2011 NFL Draft, of which there were two. With pick No. 218, the Packers selected North […]
The Green Bay Packers selected Arkansas tight end D.J. Williams in the fifth round of the NFL Draft, which is the culmination of one hell of a journey for 22-year-old. Williams’ father grappled with bi-polar disorder and alcohol and drug problems. Williams contemplated suicide when he was young. Take a look at ESPN’s profile on […]

The Green Bay Packers traded their final fifth round selection to the San Francisco 49ers and landed pick No. 174 in the sixth round and a seventh-round pick (No. 231). Ted Thompson then turned around and traded that pick to the Miami Dolphins, along with the the seventh he just acquired, for the No. 179 […]

With their first pick in the fifth round, the Green Bay Packers selected tight end D.J. Williams from Arkansas. Before you fly into a tizzy, the Packers were looking to add a tight end for two reasons. First, they don’t know what they have in Andrew Quarless, who they drafted in the fifth round last year. Second, Jermichael Finley is going to demand a lot of money in the near future and it’s possible the Packers won’t pay him.

The Green Bay Packers selected cornerback Davon House from New Mexico State with their fourth-round pick (No. 131). Here’s the scouting report on House (6-2, 200) from NFL.com. House is a physical corner that excels in press coverage, and could develop into a starter in a Cover-2 scheme. He uses his big strong hands to […]

The Green Bay Packers have traded their first fourth-round pick, No. 129 overall, and a seventh-round pick, No. 204 overall, to the Denver Broncos. In typical Ted Thompson fashion, the Packers added a fifth-round pick (No. 141) and a sixth-round pick (No. 186). The Broncos used the pick to select Julius Thomas, a tight end […]

It’s a good thing the Green Bay Packers squared off against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. Had they faced two-time AFC Championship game losers, the New York Jets, the Lombardi trophy would currently reside in New Jersey. No, I’m serious. Jets coach Rex Ryan said so. And you know he’s not a fat, blathering, idiot who just loves to hear himself talk.

With the No. 96 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers selected Hawaii running back Alex Green. Green (6-2, 220) rushed for 1,199 yards in 2010 and averaged a whopping 8.2 yards per carry, while scoring 18 touchdowns. He also caught 27 balls for 363 yards and a touchdown. Before you anoint […]

Fuck the fucking fuck NFL owners. Apparently, they didn’t get the message when their commissioner was booed as he opened the NFL Draft last night. Of course, why would they care about anyone other than themselves? Once their lockout was ruled illegal and their request for a stay was denied by U.S. District Judge Susan Richard […]

Yeah, the Atlanta Falcons and their nondescript, no-personality, never-won-a-playoff-game quarterback are a decent team. They still looked like a naked, drunken whore when the Green Bay Packers showed up and bent them over the kitchen table in the playoffs, though. After the Packers were done pounding away, the Falcons were sent home with a sore ass and the numbers 48-21 tattooed on their brains. So what do the Falcons do when the NFL Draft rolls around?

The NFL took it’s sweet time, but the league is officially open for offseason business as usual today. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson denied the league’s request for a stay Wednesday. The NFL requested the action after Nelson’s decision to lift the lockout on Monday, a decision the league is appealing. Players around the […]

Well, it took forever, but that’s the price you pay for being Super Bowl champions. With the No. 32 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers selected Mississippi State tackle Derek Sherrod. The Packers actually had multiple options with the pick — there were several pass-rushing outside linebackers available, most notably UCLA’s […]
Yeah, although we have 20 better things we could be doing, we’re going to sit here and give you commentary, as only Total Packers can, on the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Check in, refresh, masturbate, leave comments or go blather about stuff in our forum. The latest info will be at the […]

The Green Bay Packers got lucky in the 2010 NFL Draft. The player they needed, Iowa tackle Bryan Bulaga, landed in their lap at No. 23 when most “experts” expected him to go higher. Bulaga didn’t necessarily slide down draft boards because of questions about his ability, character or health, as some highly-rated prospects do.

Last evening, U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson denied the NFL’s request for a stay, meaning her initial ruling ending the lockout remains in effect. The league had requested a stay while they appeal Nelson’s ruling, arguing that starting the league year and activities like free agency could damage the competitive balance of the NFL. Nelson […]

Posted in NFL Draft, Ted Thompson | No comments
The only thing that’s certain when Ted Thompson is at the helm of the Green Bay Packers draft is uncertainty. Thompson is rarely predictable, but looking at the statistics, some patterns do emerge. For example, Thompson likes drafting wide receivers. In his six drafts as general manager, Thompson has chosen eight receivers, the most of […]
