Harris, Kampman Done For the Year

Harris inury

As we mentioned yesterday, the Green Bay Packers win over the San Francisco 49ers likely came at a cost. The cost is, unfortunately, higher than anyone had planned for, as both outside linebacker Aaron Kampman and cornerback Al Harris will be lost for the season with torn ACLs. While the Packers will be down two […]

Offense Dominant, But Win Is Costly For Packers

Aaron Rodgers was the man.

It only took 10 games, but the Green Bay Packers’ offense on Sunday finally looked like it did in the preseason – dominant. Aaron Rodgers threw for 344 yards and two scores while Ryan Grant added 129 yards rushing and a touchdown of his own as the Packers beat the San Francisco 49ers 30-24, improving […]

Packers Getting Healthy, Stronger

The Green Bay Packers will enter this week’s game with the San Francisco 49ers the healthiest they’ve been since early in the season. The team was buoyed this past week by the return of receiver Jordy Nelson, who had been out since week four. Expected to return from injury this week are linebackers Aaron Kampman […]

Was Kampman’s Absence Good For Packers?

Aaron Kampman

The Green Bay Packers played their best defensive game of the season on Sunday without Aaron Kampman. I know it will probably be considered heresy to even suggest, but you have to wonder if the Packers defense isn’t better without Kampman. Consider these known truths. Kampman, who sat out Sunday’s game with a concussion, has […]

Packers Defense Shows Up Just in Time

The Green Bay Packers’ defense that has largely been absent since the team’s last win – over the Cleveland Browns – essentially saved the Packers’ season in Sunday’s 17-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys. That unit everyone remembers from the preseason and dominating wins over the lowly Detroit Lions and Browns was back in full […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Cowboys

Jason Witten

Monty: The Green Bay Packers are in turmoil after losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys come to town on a four-game winning streak. Injuries have taken a toll on the Packers, but they should go into the game with at least one offensive weapon back, in Jordy Nelson. Nelson will make […]

A Glimpse Of The Future? Brad Jones Will Start Against Cowboys

In a test of the Green Bay Packers’ depth at linebacker, rookie outside linebacker Brad Jones will not only see the first significant action of his career, but will notch his first start as a pro against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Regular starter Aaron Kampman will be held out of the game due to […]

Did Packers Get Right Defensive Coordinator?

When the Green Bay Packers fired defensive coordinator Bob Sanders in January, coach Mike McCarthy interviewed Gregg Williams, then the former Jacksonville Jaguars defensive coordinator, and Mike Nolan, then the former San Francisco 49ers coach. Williams’ story is well documented. He had interviewed with New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton prior to visiting Green Bay. […]

Packers’ Defender Points Finger at Capers, Again

For the second time after a loss to the Minnesota Vikings, a member of the Green Bay Packers’ defense is pointing fingers. The first time, it was cornerback Charles Woodson, who openly and loudly questioned why the Packers didn’t blitz Brett Favre more. That was a good question, at the time. The Packers routinely sent […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Vikings

Total Packers takes a look at today’s Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings game and offers their predictions. Monty: Forget about Brett Favre for a second. This game comes down to two things: turnovers and pressure. If the Packers can win the turnover battle and keep Aaron Rodgers off the ground, they’ll win going away. The […]

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) […]

Clay Matthews – Catalyst for the Packers Defense

Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews made his first NFL start on Sunday against the Detroit Lions, and boy, what a start it was. Matthews, the Packers second first-round pick this season, played every snap, contributed two sacks and five tackles, including one for a loss. We’ve gone over and over the Packers shortcomings […]

Packers Trade Chatter Gets Louder as Deadline Approaches

The chatter is getting louder with the NFL trade deadline looming tomorrow and the Green Bay Packers are part of it. Whether that results in any deals remains to be seen – Packers GM Ted Thompson isn’t known for his splashy moves – but there are some things to keep an eye on. The Journal […]

Where Are the Packers Linebackers?

So far this season, trying to find one of the Packers linebackers in the middle of a play is like trying to locate Waldo in a picture with a thousand guys who are wearing red and white striped shirts and hats. The Green Bay Packers came into the season with what looked like one of […]

Aaron Kampman is Potential Trade Bait

With the NFL trade deadline around the corner (October 20), it seems to be increasingly apparent that the Green Bay Packers are willing to listen to offers for, or may even be shopping, outside linebacker Aaron Kampman. Before you fly off the handle, this move would make sense for the Packers in a number of […]

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 […]

Green Bay Packers: 5 Reasons for Excitement

Hi. Im here to save Mike McCarthys job.

With training camp beginning at the end of the month, I am starting to get excited for the upcoming Green Bay Packers season. Since we’re in the down time between the Packers mini-camp and training camp, I figured now is as good a time as any to get you excited too. There are some very […]

Positional Notes: Kampman, Barbre and Raji Looking for a Fit

Aaron Kampman

We know more about this year’s version of Green Bay Packers now that the team’s first mini-camp has concluded. It has been well documented that former Packers’ defensive end turned outside linebacker Aaron Kampman has been a bit uneasy about the position change this offseason. First, he wouldn’t even discuss it. When he finally did […]

Driver Happy, Kampman Speaks, Bears Still Suck

Today’s word on your Green Bay Packers is just that. Wide receiver Donald Driver has shown up at the Packers OTAs and was on the practice field for the first time yesterday. Driver admitted he is in contract discussions with the Packers, but his absence has been due to non-football-related matters, specifically, a relative of […]
