Packers Could Face Bears Twice In A Row

Jay Cutler

The Green Bay Packers closed last season in Phoenix with a game against the Arizona Cardinals. They went back to Arizona the following week for the wild card game. The same scenario could play out again this year, only with the NFC North champion Chicago Bears taking the place of the Cardinals. The Packers face […]

Here’s The Packers’ Full Playoff Picture

Eli Manning

If the Green Bay Packers win their final two games, they’re in the playoffs as a wild card, this we know. However, there’s another, much-more-convoluted scenario where the Packers could still make it. First, the Packers need to beat the New York Giants, this week. If they lose to the Giants, it doesn’t matter what […]

Win And We’re In

Michael Vick

It’s just that simple for the Green Bay Packers. Despite the loss to the New England Patriots dropping them to 8-6, the Packers simply need to win their last two games to make the playoffs as a wild card. The Chicago Bears will clinch the NFC North with a win tonight against the Joe Webb-led […]

No More Meaningless Late-Season Games?

Vikings Packers

The NFL is considering scheduling divisional matchups in the final two weeks of the season to try to avoid something we’ve railed on before – teams that have clinched playoff berths sitting their starters. Is it a foolproof plan? No, but it’s a step in the right direction. Such a plan is unlikely to eliminate […]

The Season-Ending Facemask

Aaron Rodgers sacked

The Green Bay Packers 51-45 loss to the Arizona Cardinals has taken a bit to digest, but we know three things for sure. First, it was a great game. I don’t think anyone can argue with that. Second, the Packers shit the bed. The league’s second-ranked defense gave up 531 yards of offense to the […]

Cardinals End Packers’ Season In Stunning Shootout

It was a playoff game for the ages, although Packer fans may not look back on it too fondly. Kurt Warner and Aaron Rodgers put on a passing extravaganza, tossing for a combined 801 yards and nine touchdowns in the NFC wild card game Sunday night. But it was Arizona’s defense that came up with […]

Boldin Still Questionable; Likely A Game-time Decision

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin is still questionable for Sunday’s wild-game game against the Green Bay Packers with a high ankle sprain and will likely be a game-time decision. Boldin, who is also treating a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee, has been getting treatment virtually around the clock. He’s caught 84 […]

Packers’ Victory Shows NFL’s Flaws

Ryan Grant and the Packers have run over, around and through the Cardinals

The Green Bay Packers 33-7 week 17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals put the NFL’s flaws in clear view. The game was meaningless. Everyone knew that after the Minnesota Vikings beat the New York Giants in an early game, which guaranteed the Cardinals could not move up in the playoff seeding. So what did the […]

Round One: Packers…Doesn’t Mean Much Though

The Wizard of Green Bay teleported himself down to Glendale, Ariz., for Sundays game.

It’s hard to take too much away from the Green Bay Packers’ 33-7 drumming of the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. It was a dominating performance, but Arizona rested most of its starters and coach Ken Whisenhunt played it safe, not showing much of what he will do when the two teams meet again next week […]
