The Green Bay Packers Are Bad

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 […]

Bengals 31, Packers 24 – Observations and Opinions

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 […]

Good Morning From Total Packers

Hi. We’re not going to beat around the bush this morning. We wanted to live blog during the game, but fuck. We’re fucking hungover. I don’t mean that we got really drunk last night, because hell, we certainly did that. I mean, we got really fucking drunk last night, and then had a bunch of […]

Packers Youngest Team In NFL… Again

I will kill you if you dont like my strategy!

For the fourth year in a row, the Green Bay Packers have the youngest team in the NFL at an average age of 25.7. The team also has the fewest players over 30, with four. I’ve bitched about this in the past because I felt quality teams had quality veteran leadership. However, at this point, […]

Final Notes On The Packers vs. Bears

The Green Bay Packers escaped Lambeau Field with a 21-15 victory over the Chicago Bears last night. I say escaped because despite a rousing performance by the Packers’ defense, which forced Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler into four interceptions and held Matt Forte to just 55 yards rushing, the team was lucky to come out with […]

Packers Bears Live Blog

Al Harris

Big time play by a big time player: Al Harris to close it out! Packers 21-15. ———- My stupid friends who are Bears fans just texted me before that play to Jennings. Idiots! mwahahahahahaha! ———- I apologize, that would be Aaron Rodger’s third fourth quarter comeback. The first two were against the Lions, which really […]

An Ode To Charles Martin

Well, the shit talking has started in earnest. I’ve been hearing drivel come out of the mouths of Chicago Bears’ fans for two days now – not that it’s anything different than what normally comes out of their mouths, but now they are directing it towards me and my beloved Green Bay Packers. I usually […]

NFC North Preview

Yesterday, I wrote about how the NFC North is shaping up as the strongest division in football, which says one thing: this division will be both tough and competitive. Any one of three teams has a legitimate opportunity to win the NFC North. In addition to the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago Bears and Minnesota […]

Packers’ Preseason Finale and What It Meant

The Green Bay Packers went into Nashville last night and largely stunk up the joint, getting drubbed by the Tennessee Titans, 27-13. The No. 1 offense played only one series, and the No. 1 defense did about the same, although linebackers Nick Barnett, Clay Matthews and Jeremy Thompson – all of whom saw their first […]

Green Bay Packers: Starting to Look Like the Real Deal

Kurt Warner

The Green Bay Packers hung on for a 44-37 preseason win over the defending NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals last night in Phoenix, but that really doesn’t begin to tell the story. A friend turned to me this morning and asked, “Do you ever remember a preseason when the Packers looked this good?” The answer is […]

Packers vs. Bills Game Notes

Johnny Jolly

The Green Bay Packers beat the Buffalo Bills 31-21 in a preseason tilt Saturday night, as the team improved to 2-0 in meaningless games. While I will again stress that no one wins anything in the preseason, Packers’ fans have some reason for excitement entering the 2009 season (which we wish would get here already). […]

The Difference Between the Packers and the Vikings

The difference between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings? History? Tradition? Super Bowl titles? Championships? Class? Yes. All of those things. The Packers have them. The Vikings don’t, and they never will. However, I think the biggest difference between the Packers and Vikings are their fans. I grabbed this screen shot from the […]

Illustrating The Vikings Chances: Brett Favre Statistical Breakdown

A lot has been said about what Brett Favre will mean to the Minnesota Vikings. Certainly, I think it’s fair to say the Vikings are now the favorite to win the division. Some pundits have tapped them as the favorite to win the Super Bowl. But hold the phone. The Vikings were going to be […]

Packers vs. Browns Game Notes

Tramon Williams

The Green Bay Packers beat the Cleveland Browns 17-0 Saturday night in the Upper Midwest Shrine Game. While beating the Browns, a team that may be in the running for the NFL’s worst this season, in an exhibition game isn’t anything to get terribly excited about, there were some interesting developments to come out of […]

Brett Favre – The Aftermath

Only God can save me now.

Now we survey the wreckage. Brett Favre’s decision to remain retired instead of joining the Minnesota Vikings, has some serious ramifications. The Vikings organization… hahahahahahahhahahaha!… sorry, lost my train of thought. Oh yeah, the Vikings. Let’s start at the top, with the chief bonehead. Vikings coach Brad Childress released a statement yesterday, saying the Favre […]

Nick Collins’ Disappearing Act and Upcoming Distractions

Nick Collins

As the Green Bay Packers open their first mandatory minicamp of the offseason today, the biggest question is whether safety Nick Collins will practice. Collins, the Packers starting strong safety last season, made a brief appearance in Green Bay last week – only the second day he showed up at any of the Packers OTAs. […]

The Curious Case of Jarrett Bush

Update: On Friday, Bush signed an offer sheet with the Tennessee Titans. The Packers have until next Friday to match the offer, if they so choose. Anyone who has followed this blog since the beginning is well aware of my out-and-out disdain for Green Bay Packers cornerback, Jarrett Bush. Bush is, in a word – […]

Free Agency 2009: Our Guys

Mark Tauscher

The 2009 free agency signing period begins on February 27 and the Green Bay Packers are in very good shape, at approximately $25 million below the projected $123 million salary cap. Before we reveal our list of free agency demands for 2009, let’s take a look at the Packers own free agents. The most substantial […]

Stock “Retires,” Sanders Next?

Mike Stock

Late Friday evening, Green Bay Packers’ special teams coach Mike Stock retired. Or, “retired.” This doesn’t come as a surprise. The Packers special teams were putrid this past season in nearly every aspect. Fans had been calling for Stock’s job, along with that of defensive coordinator Bob Sanders, for some time. What does come as […]

Green Bay Packers: Infamy Avoided

Donald Driver

Yesterday, the Green Bay Packers completed a miserable 6-10 season with a 31-21 victory over the Detroit Lions, and in the process managed to avoid infamy by not becoming the only team to lose to the Lions this year. The Lions are the first team in league history to go 0-16. At times it was […]
