Packers Probably Want to Forget Last Baltimore Meeting

This guy torched the Packers last time they met Baltimore.

The Green Bay Packers would probably rather forget the last time they played the Baltimore Ravens. The two teams have only met three times since the franchise was moved from Cleveland to Baltimore in 1996. Green Bay won the first two, but was drubbed 48-3 by the Ravens in the most recent matchup – a […]

Troy Aikman Jumps on the Brett Favre Bandwagon

Troy Aikman

Since joining Fox Sports as an NFL color commentator in 2001, former Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Troy Aikman has made little attempt to hide his disdain of the Green Bay Packers and, in particular, the team’s former ageless quarterback, Brett Favre. Maybe it’s because Aikman hated doing so many Packers’ games or because his career was ended […]

Green Bay: Where No One Wants to Play… Again

Next to going to Home Depot, the only cool thing to do in Green Bay.

In the early 1990s, Green Bay was generally viewed as a no man’s land by most NFL players. Cold. Boring. Small market. Cold. Just generally not somewhere you wanted to play. That all changed with the rise of Brett Favre and the signing of Reggie White, who became the first major black player to sign […]

MVP Push Begins For Favre

During Sunday’s blowout of the Seattle Seahawks fans started the MVP chant for Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Brett Favre. Favre threw four touchdown passes and was 22-of-25 for 213 yards on Sunday. On the season, he’s thrown 21 touchdowns against three interceptions. He also leads the league in quarterback rating at 112.1. Predictably, Favre’s teammates and […]

Brett Favre: Demoralizing Our Troops

Favre signaling to terrorists

You know, you’d think this would be one of my assinine, satirical looks at the world of the Green Bay Packers and their sworn enemy, the Minnesota Vikings. Unfortunately, this is a completely true story. Detainees at an Iraqi prison camp staffed by members of the Wisconsin National Guard are using Brett Favre to demoralize […]

Chicago: Where Quarterbacks Go To Die

Jay Cutler

We all know what happens when the Green Bay Packers aren’t playing well. We all pile on coach Mike McCarthy (and rightfully so) and general manager Ted Thompson. Well, in Chicago they do it a little differently. When the Bears are playing poorly, they pile it on their former Messiah, quarterback Jay Cutler. Cutler has […]

1996 Packers, 49ers Riot Game Changed Everything

Goddam right!

There have been some great matchups in the history of the Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers series, but the high point came in the mid-to-late ’90s. Those years signaled a changing of the guard in an NFL once ruled by the 49ers and Dallas Cowboys. A well-built Green Bay Packers team with a mix […]

Signs Point to Favre Tormenting Packers Another Year

Gonna go huntin!

A report came out of the Twin Cities today that Brett Favre may be planning on sticking around for another year to torment the Green Bay Packers… I mean, to play quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings. Favre is, of course, already signed for $13 million next season, but we all know how the postseason retirement […]

Can Aaron Rodgers Bounce Back for the Packers?

A big question heading into the second half of the Green Bay Packers’ season is second year starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers and whether he can help reverse the team’s fortunes and make the Packers – now in second place in the NFC North at 4-4 – a playoff contender again. Rodgers is having a great […]

More Proof: Vikings Fans Really Are the Worst

Who would want to watch this guy play?

As if we needed more proof that Minnesota Vikings fans are the worst fans in the NFL, but here you have it. Apparently, a 7-1 record and an all-star offense with quarterback Brett Favre and running back Adrian Peterson isn’t enough to draw Vikings fans to the MetroBarn. The team is facing possible blackouts if […]

Two Reasons the Packers Could Go On A Roll

Cullen Jenkins

There certainly is a lot of negative commentary surrounding the Green Bay Packers, right now. We’ve provided quite a bit of it ourselves, and rightfully so, the Packers stunk up the joint on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. You’ve got Cullen Jenkins openly questioning Dom Capers’ handling of the defense. There’s the statistical disparity between […]

These Stats Tell the Story For the Packers

A familiar sight. Photo: Tom Lynn

The Green Bay Packers have piled up some eye-popping stats in their games against the Minnesota Vikings – of the negative variety. Two things immediately jump out when you look at the two games, both of which the Vikings won. Pressuring the quarterback The Packers’ inability to protect quarterback Aaron Rodgers is well documented. The […]

Favre Didn’t Want to Play for Packers

It was a seemingly simple comment made by Troy Aikman during the Green Bay Packers contest with Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, but it made me pause nonetheless. Aikman said Brett Favre didn’t want to play for the Packers, anymore. I didn’t really understand it at the time and Thom Brennaman just […]

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 […]

Packers Simply Outplayed in Favre Bowl II Loss

There’s really not much to analyze in the Green Bay Packers’ 38-26 loss to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday in Favre Bowl II at Lambeau Field. Vikings QB Brett Favre was booed – and booed heartily – pretty much every time he stepped onto his old playing field. So was former Packers kicker Ryan Longwell, but […]

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 […]

The Best of Vikings Week

We’ve published a lot of great stuff here at Total Packers this week, if I do say so myself. When the Green Bay Packers play the Minnesota Vikings, it just brings the best out of everyone… because the Vikings are a bunch of scumbags. So, here’s a roundup of the best from the past week. […]

Gilbert Brown Would Fart on Brett Favre

Gilbert Brown

That’s right. The Gravedigger, Gilbert Brown, the 340-pound former Green Bay Packers defensive tackle would fart on Brett Favre. Brown and ESPN First Take host Jay Crawford had this exchange during Friday’s show (ESPN is apparently running a series of former Packers talking about Favre’s return to Lambeau Field – William Hendrson was on the […]
