Packers Inexplicably Cut Aaron Rouse

Posted in Aaron Rouse, signings, Ted Thompson | 8 comments

I guess this is fighting fire with fire. If your team is dangerously thin at safety, what do you do? Cut one of your remaining safeties and sign one who has never played in your system, that’s what. At least if you’re Green Bay Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson. Look, I have been a Ted […]

Chad Ochocinco Lambeau Leap

To quote The Jeffrey Lebwoski, the plan has crashed into the mountain. More painfully one sided than the close score suggests, yesterday’s Green Bay Packers’ 31-24 defeat to the lowly Cincinnati Bengals exposed more weaknesses and vulnerabilities for the Packers. The Packers’ offensive line play was even shakier than last week and aside from a […]

Brett Favre made his Minnesota Vikings’ debut tonight. In front of thousands of frenzied Vikings’ fans, he and the rest of the Minnesota Vikings’ first teamers promptly laid an egg. What a great start to what is already being called an historic season by Minnesota faithful. The game is still in progress, but a YouTube […]

Though he played one on TV, Ashton Kutcher is no Green Bay Packers’ fan. He is a well known bottom feeder, Chicago Bears fan. But today, he had the Packer Nation’s back as he ripped Brett Favre from inside a nice, yet not over the top set trailer. See the video below. Kutcher brings up […]

What If Michael Vick Became A Packer?

The AP released a small piece today, indicating that GM Ted Thompson and the Green Bay Packers may be interested in looking at Michael Vick. This is interesting because, as far as I know, this is the first bit of national media speculation involving the Packers and Vick. Of course, some of us at Total […]

Brett Favre Wrangler

Brett Favre has been spotted in Denver. How do we know this? Total Packers was sent this report originally posted on the Mile High Report. While I have no reason to doubt Brett Favre is indeed in Denver, it’s highly unlikely he’d make any sort of comeback-related trip without first alerting Rachel Nichols and ESPN. […]

Golden Boy vs. Country Boy: Hornung Blasts Favre

Paul Hornung

Apparently, some Green Bay Packers’ legends haven’t forgotten about fidelity, loyalty and Packer Pride. Or maybe Paul Hornung thinks the Minnesota Vikings suck that much (they do). Either way, Hornung doesn’t seem to think Brett Favre wearing Vikings’ purple necessarily guarantees a Lombardi Trophy for our idiot neighbors in the land o’ lakes. “(Favre) ain’t going to […]

Dear Brett, With each passing day, it appears more and more likely that you will in fact return – again – to play in the NFL. This time around with one of the crappiest franchises in pro sports, the Minnesota Vikings. Are you seriously going through with this? I mean, after last year’s fiasco of […]

Knowshon Moreno at No. 23? Weeks – no, months of analysis and speculation culminate tomorrow when the 2009 NFL Draft begins. You have to hand it to the NFL – no other professional league has turned their draft process into such an anticipated event. I toyed with the idea of posting a complete mock draft, […]

Personally, I think the NFL blogosphere needs more paranoid conspiracy theories and superstition. With this article, TotalPackers.com will try to do just that – I will examine a fascinating chain reaction of retarded events that may culminate in the Chicago Bears becoming relevant once again, much to the chagrin of my beloved Green Bay Packers.

Not much to discuss about the Green Bay Packers until we get closer to the draft. So we might as well bash the Minnesota Vikings. This video was submitted by our good friend and die hard Green Bay Packers fan, Aaron AKA Tandem Punch Silver. Be sure to share this with all of your friends. […]

Ted Thompson creeps out the Green bay media at least week

The NFL’s annual spending orgy that we call free agency has pretty much come and gone. Predictably, a large contingent of Green Bay Packers fans have been lamenting the fact that, yet again, GM Ted Thompson failed to sign a single average player to a multi-million dollar contract. Coming off an utterly disappointing season, the […]

Not too long ago, my neighbor launched a new sports comedy website, featuring viral videos and blogs. Being the good neighbor that I am, I thought we might as well give them a shout out. The videos feature a variety of strange characters and even a BCS Committee comprised of Chimpanzees. The site itself is […]

Dom Capers

After an unprecedented purge of defensive coaching staff, after much hemming and hawing and after much speculation, the Green Bay Packers have settled on former Houston Texans coach Dom Capers as their new defensive coordinator. I’m not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I like the hire. Dom Capers brings the type […]

Is the Green Bay Packers’ season in a freefall – or will the team finish strong, setting up a championship run next season? Based on the ineptitude on display over the last few weeks, I’d have to lean towards the former. Green Bay’s defense has been especially bad against the run in recent weeks and […]

Pat Williams and Kevin Williams

A Minnesota (really??) judge has blocked the suspensions of the Minnesota Vikings’ tubby defensive linemen Pat Williams and Kevin Williams. No relation. Hennepin County District Judge Gary Larson issued the temporary restraining order at the players’ request, saying he wanted more time to hear arguments in the case. No further hearing date immediately was set. […]

Pat Williams and Kevin Williams

If there was ever a light at the end of the tunnel, this is it. The Minnesota Vikings’ all-star duo of obese defensive tackles, Pat Williams and Kevin Williams, have officially been suspended for the final four games of the season. Both were suspended for violating the NFL’s drug policy, having tested positive for using […]

Aaron Rodgers

With yet another heartbreaking 4 points-or-less loss, the Green Bay Packers have all but assured that the playoffs will be out of their reach, with their 35-31 defeat at the hands of the Carolina Panthers. The Packers don’t deserve it this year, not this coaching staff, not this underachieving group of players. But it’s hard […]

Aaron Rodgers

In the first half of the Green Bay Packers excruciating 51-29 loss to the New Orleans Saints, there were a few questionable calls and non-calls that went New Orleans’ way. Something stunk about a lot of those (the Drew Brees intentional grounding non-call, for example) and had the game stayed close, I would have made […]

News reports are leaking out now and it looks like the Driver family is in the middle of a major situation. Apparently, Driver’s father was found beaten […]
