These Stats Tell the Story For the Packers

The Green Bay Packers have piled up some eye-popping stats in their games against the Minnesota Vikings – of the negative variety. Two things immediately jump out when you look at the two games, both of which the Vikings won. Pressuring the quarterback The Packers’ inability to protect quarterback Aaron Rodgers is well documented. The […]

Packers Simply Outplayed in Favre Bowl II Loss

There’s really not much to analyze in the Green Bay Packers’ 38-26 loss to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday in Favre Bowl II at Lambeau Field. Vikings QB Brett Favre was booed – and booed heartily – pretty much every time he stepped onto his old playing field. So was former Packers kicker Ryan Longwell, but […]

The Best of Vikings Week

We’ve published a lot of great stuff here at Total Packers this week, if I do say so myself. When the Green Bay Packers play the Minnesota Vikings, it just brings the best out of everyone… because the Vikings are a bunch of scumbags. So, here’s a roundup of the best from the past week. […]

Five Reasons the Packers Will Beat the Vikings

Nick Barnett is among them

The Green Bay Packers are three-point favorites going into their contest with the Minnesota Vikings this weekend. Since the Packers are playing in Lambeau Field, that line simply means that the oddsmakers feel these two teams are evenly matched. Still, this season’s history says the Vikings are the better team. The Vikings are 6-1 to […]

Everything Goes According to Script for Packers

This is exactly how it was supposed to play out for the Green Bay Packers. The Packers would dominate the Cleveland Browns and the Minnesota Vikings would lose on the road to the Pittsburgh Steelers, setting up a battle for first place in the NFC North next week in Lambeau Field. Technically, the Packers (4-2) […]

Favre Bowl II Stupidity Begins to Ramp Up

I’ve blogged before about the idiotic heights some Green Bay Packers’ fans are reaching in anticipation of Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Brett Favre’s return to Lambeau Field on Nov. 1. In September, Chris Carriveau announced a “purification ceremony” at a “Black Sunday Event” Oct. 31, at which fans can toss their Favre Packers paraphernalia into a […]

Packers Can’t Overlook the Cleveland Browns

It would be easy for the Green Bay Packers to look past the 1-5 Cleveland Browns this weekend in anticipation of Favre Bowl II the following weekend (Nov. 1), when Brett Favre returns to Lambeau Field as a Minnesota Viking. The Vikings’ visit is easily one of the most anticipated games in Packers history, and […]

Detroit Win Proof Packers Aren’t Going Very Far

It pains me to say it, but the 2009 Green Bay Packers football team is not a good football team. Right now, the Packers are at best an average football team. Even though the Packers completely handled the Detroit Lions – to the tune of 26-0 – it was again apparent why the Packers won’t […]

Packers Drub Lions, But Look Ugly Doing It

Kudos to the Green Bay Packers for taking it to the lowly Matt Stafford- and Calvin Johnson-less (and later, Daunte Culpepper-less) Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field on Sunday. The 26-0 shutout keeps the Packers’ home winning streak against the Lions alive at 19 games and gives the team a much-needed boost coming off their bye […]

Lions Stafford, Johnson Doubtful for Sunday

Calvin Johnson

Well, I told you the Green Bay Packers were about to get healthy. Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and stud wide receiver Calvin Johnson both missed practice again on Friday. This was the second day Stafford has missed practice this week. Johnson hasn’t practiced at all. Both players are battling knee injuries and are unlikely […]

Penalties, Sacks and Turnovers Key to Packers Loss

About the only thing the Green Bay Packers did right in their ugly 30-23 loss to the Vikings in the MetroBarn last night was hold Adrian Peterson to 55 yards rushing. Peterson did score once, but was held to an average of just 2.2 yards per rush, which is no small feat considering he’s racked […]

“It’s sweet but it had nothing to do with revenge…” more bullshit from the Favre. ___ And there you go. Final score 30-23 Vikings. ___ Rice recovers the onside kick. That should do it. ___ Crosby field goal is good. 30-23 Vikings. ___ Rodgers comes up short. Field goal unit comes out onto the field. […]

Packers vs. Vikings Playlist

I’m frothing at the mouth. My hands are shaking. The first shitbag Minnesota Vikings fan that looks at me cockeyed is going get a beer bottle busted across their face. It’s two hours until game time and I need something to dull my passion, rage, fire, nerves… Or I need something to fuel those things […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Vikings

Brett Favre

Total Packers takes a look at tonight’s Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings game and offers their predictions. Monty: The real question is how much emotion will play into this contest. The first team, or perhaps even the first player, who lets emotion dictate their actions is going to be in trouble. Still, how can emotion […]

The Greatest Play in Packers vs. Vikings History

This should come as no surprise to anyone who’s seen the play, but we’re going to go out on a limb here and call Antonio Freeman’s miraculous Monday Night Football catch and run the greatest play in the history of the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings rivalry. The touchdown itself was a 46-yarder, but it […]

Why Fret About Brett?

Let me pose a question. Why fret about Brett? Really. I admit there has been a lot of hype and drama over the last year and a half; even the last five years with Brett Favre’s “will he or won’t he retire” game. Personally, I was really upset over Brett’s decision to retire from the […]

Packers vs. Vikings: Let the Bullshit Fest Begin

It’s only Tuesday, and already the spin machine is churning in anticipation of next Monday night’s meeting between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings at the MetroBarn. Of course, Vikings’ coach Brad Childress’ latest comments are the lamest from either side, telling reporters the team’s Winter Park facility “won’t be vibrating” this week […]

Packers Shape Up, But It’s Only the Rams

The Green Bay Packers got a much needed win on Sunday, and the team looked better than it did the previous week against the Cincinnati Bengals. However, it should be pointed out that the St. Louis Rams are one of the worst teams in football. Still, a win is a win, and although the game […]

Simmer Down Now, Simmer Down

Charles Woodson

Some great words of wisdom tonight from the Press-Gazette’s Mike Vandermause, who tells rabid Green Bay Packers’ fans something I’ve repeated many times already this week: Calm the heck down people! Admittedly, this is quite the turnaround from Vandermause’s Sept. 20 column “No quick fix can solve this mess,” which may have even spurred some […]

The Green Bay Packers Are Bad

football, green bay packers, american football, total packers, green bay packers news, green bay packers schedule, green bay packers tickets

There, I said it. The Green Bay Packers are bad, and it’s depressing. It’s become pretty apparent why the Green Bay Packers are bad, too, after a 31-24 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals at Lambeau Field. This is a Bengals team that scored seven points last week against the Denver Broncos. That’s seven points against […]
