Will Packers Put Cobb In Wildcat?

Randall Cobb

The Green Bay Packers drafted a versatile weapon when they picked Kentucky’s Randall Cobb in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. We discussed this potential in Cobb’s post-draft breakdown. What we didn’t consider at the time is the possibility of the Packers putting Cobb in the wildcat. Certainly, the wildcat is a gadget play and the Packers aren’t known for running such plays.

Ryan Pickett: Your Ultra-Conservative Guide

Ryan Pickett

I always find it odd when I see someone who isn’t old, rich and white latch onto conservative political causes. Of course, there’s a certain theory that sums things up nicely — you’re only a Democrat until you start making a lot of money, unless you live in California. Unfortunately, that’s not the case here […]

Nick Collins Third In Safety Rankings

Nick Collins

Green Bay Packers safety Nick Collins came in third in ESPN’s safety Power Rankings. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ Troy Polamalu and Baltimore Ravens’ Ed Reed were unanimous selections for first and second — Polamalu got all the first-place votes and Reed got all the second-place votes. Collins finished 12 points ahead of fourth-place finisher Adrian Wilson of the Arizona Cardinals.

Jerry Angelo Makes Chicago Bears A Joke On Draft Day Again

Jerry Angelo

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.

Vikings Want Ponder To Start Day One

Christian Ponder

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).

A Quick Look At The Packers’ Seventh-Round Picks

Lawrence Guy

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 […]

D.J. Williams Has Come A Long Way

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 […]

Packers Add Guard, Linebacker, Defensive End In Sixth

Caleb Schlauderaff

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 […]

The Book On Packers Fifth-Round Pick D.J. Williams

D.J. Williams

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 Book on Packers Fourth-Round Pick Davon House

Davon House

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 […]

Packers Trade Fourth-Round Pick To Denver

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 […]

Rex Ryan’s Jets Totally Should Have Won Super Bowl XLV

Rex Ryan

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.

The Book On Packers Third-Round Pick Alex Green

Alex Green

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 […]

The Book On Packers Second-Round Pick Randall Cobb

Randall Cobb

With the No. 64 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers selected Kentucky wide receiver Randall Cobb. There’s a lot to like about Cobb, who was a first-team All-American in 2010, but to be succinct, the Packers haven’t had a player with his skill set in some time. Although he’s a tad […]

Hooray! The Lockout Is Back On!

Roger Goodell

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 […]

Apparently, It Was Time To Panic In Atlanta

Julio Jones

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?

NFL Offseason Begins Today, For Real This Time

Roger Goodell

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 […]

The Book On Packers First-Round Pick Derek Sherrod

Derek Sherrod

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 […]

Fuck It! We’re Live Blogging The NFL Draft

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 […]

Big-Time Talent Could Fall To Packers

Justin Houston

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.
