Predictions: Packers vs. Falcons

Roddy White

Shawn: I’ve said all year the Green Bay Packers would win this week’s game, and if anything, I believe even more strongly in that prediction now. The Atlanta Falcons are 8-2, sure. Everyone seems to have forgotten that they beat the Saints after Garrett Hartley missed two easy field goals that would have won the […]

PETA: Lambeau Field Is Third Most Vegetarian-Friendly

PETA has released their annual list of the most vegetarian-friendly stadiums in the NFL and Lambeau Field is ranked third. Lambeau ranked third last season, as well, which we’ve always found strange, considering it’s located dead center in the land of bratwurst, deer hunting, beer swilling and heart attacks. However, Lambeau offers a variety of […]

Ryan Grant Out For The Year

Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant is out for the season and will go on injured reserve after tearing two ligaments in his ankle during the Packers victory over the Philadelphia Eagles — a story first reported by Jay Glazer. The injury will require surgery and Grant is expected to be on crutches for […]

Packers Offense Could Join A Select Few

The Green Bay Packers offense looks like a juggernaut going into the 2010 season. The possibilities of this season got me thinking about some of the greatest individual seasons by teammates in NFL history. The Packers had two 1,000-yard receivers, a 1,000-yard rusher and a 4,000-yard passer in 2009. Those numbers came courtesy of Greg […]

Top 15 Celebrity Green Bay Packers Fans

James Van Der Beek

I noticed earlier this week that Samuel L. Jackson made some sort of rally video for the Atlanta Falcons. I didn’t bother to watch it because, frankly, the Atlanta Falcons suck and so does Samuel L. Jackson. That’s right. I said it. He’s played himself in every damn movie he’s ever been in and the […]

Justin Harrell Will Never Be The Biggest Bust In The 2007 Draft

Justin Harrell

No, that honor will go to No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell, who was dumped by the Oakland Raiders after three seasons and will go down as one of the all-time great busts. Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Just Harrell is in the next group, though. Harrell is one of nine of the 32 players […]

Packers Reportedly Discussing New Contract With Woodson

This comes as a bit of a surprise, but the Green Bay Packers and cornerback Charles Woodson are reportedly discussing a new contract. I say it’s a bit of a surprise because, although Woodson is coming off perhaps his finest season, he’ll be 34 this year and still has three years left on his current […]

Charlie Peprah Back In Green Bay

The Green Bay Packers finally made their big offseason free agent signing by bringing in safety Charlie Peprah, who was with the team from 2006-08 before spending last year with the Atlanta Falcons. Peprah notched one tackle in two games for Atlanta in 2009. He was released by the Packers following training camp, last season. […]

The Sunday night games are Oct. 24 vs. the Vikings at Lambeau Field, Nov. 7 vs. the Cowboys at Lambeau Field, and Dec. 29 […]

Favre Traded to Packers Because He Was A Drunk

Brett Favre

Then Green Bay Packers general manager Ron Wolf got a steal when he sent the 19th pick to the Atlanta Falcons for quarterback Brett Favre in 1992. Neither the Packers or Falcons knew then what Favre would become, but former Falcons coach Jerry Glanville says he decided to move Favre for one reason – he […]

Day One Free Agency Update

We’re going to update this post throughout the day simply because there already is a lot going on and there will be a lot more in the free for all known as NFL free agency. The most recent news will be at the top. ———- Safety Antrel Rolle was the last big signing of the […]

Remembering the Last Time the Minnesota Vikings Played for the NFC Championship

It was January 17, 1999 when the Minnesota Vikings last played in the NFC Championship game. The Vikings were coming off an almost perfect, record-setting 1998 season and played host to the upstart NFC West champion Atlanta Falcons. Ed. note: Actually, Jeremy is right. I had totally forgotten about the 41-0 massacre at the hands […]

Aaron Rodgers: Player of the Decade

Im the man!

We’re speaking of the next decade, of course – the teens I guess you wold call them. And actually, we’re not speaking in this case at all, the Sporting News is. The Sporting News named their players of the next decade in the four major professional sports, and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was […]

NFC Playoff Picture: Clearing Out the Trash

Eli Manning

While there are still eight teams vying for two wild card slots in the AFC, the NFC picture has become pretty clear after Sunday’s games. The Green Bay Packers currently hold the fifth seed, behind the division-leading New Orleans Saints (13-0, No. 1 seed), Minnesota Vikings (11-2, 2), Philadelphia Eagles (9-4, 3) and Arizona Cardinals […]

Green Bay Packers: Playoff Picture Looking Clear

The Giants have carried themselves back into the playoff picture

The simplest way for the Green Bay Packers to make the playoffs is to keep winning, but things are looking pretty clear after this past weekend’s slate of games. The Packers, at 8-4, currently hold the No. 6 seed in the NFC. The Philadelphia Eagles (8-4) hold the other wild card slot and the New […]

Green Bay Packers: 77% Chance of Playoffs

Joe Flacco

There may be a 40 percent chance of snow when the Green Bay Packers meet the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, but thankfully, the Packers playoff chances are a bit higher than that. According to Advanced NFL Stats, the Packers have a 77 percent chance of making the playoffs as a wild card. They’re followed by […]

To put it simply, the Green Bay Packers need to keep winning in order to make the playoffs, but let’s take a look at their competition. The Packers are currently battling the Philadelphia Eagles (7-4), New York Giants (6-5), and Atlanta Falcons (6-5) for two wild card spots. The San Francisco 49ers (5-6) could also […]

The White Elephant in the Room

Mike McCarthy

Most everyone is quick to point the finger at defensive coordinator Bob Sanders as the scapegoat in this dismal Green Bay Packers’ season. And the proverbial finger has good reason to be pointed in Sanders direction, especially after a disgusting 24-21 home loss to the Houston Texans, in which the defense was carved up for […]

Long Lost Game Photos: Atlanta Falcons

It is true that it has taken some time for me to upload these, which is partly because I am just slow and sloth-like, and partly because the Green Bay Packers lost this game to the Atlanta Falcons(!?). Yeah, I was a little dumbfounded too. Anyway, it was still a cool experience, because it was […]

Lions – Trap or Statement For Packers?

Rod Marinelli

This week’s Green Bay Packers’ opponent, the Detroit Lions, are bad. They’ve been bad since a guy named Barry Sanders left town, and hell, they weren’t even that good when he was there (anyone remember Scott Mitchell?). But if their week one performance against the Atlanta Falcons, who started a rookie quarterback and have a […]
