Penalties, Sacks and Turnovers Key to Packers Loss

About the only thing the Green Bay Packers did right in their ugly 30-23 loss to the Vikings in the MetroBarn last night was hold Adrian Peterson to 55 yards rushing. Peterson did score once, but was held to an average of just 2.2 yards per rush, which is no small feat considering he’s racked […]

Charles Woodson – Your NFC Defensive Player of the Month

As first reported by Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee, Charles Woodson – or as we like to call him, Chuckles – will be named NFC Defensive Player of the Month, tomorrow. Woodson is tied for the league lead in interceptions with three, one of which he returned for a touchdown. Woodson also, inexplicably (this will […]

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 […]

The Green Bay Packers Are Bad

football, green bay packers, american football, total packers, green bay packers news, green bay packers schedule, green bay packers tickets

There, I said it. The Green Bay Packers are bad, and it’s depressing. It’s become pretty apparent why the Green Bay Packers are bad, too, after a 31-24 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals at Lambeau Field. This is a Bengals team that scored seven points last week against the Denver Broncos. That’s seven points against […]

Bengals 31, Packers 24 – Observations and Opinions

Chad Ochocinco Lambeau Leap

To quote The Jeffrey Lebwoski, the plan has crashed into the mountain. More painfully one sided than the close score suggests, yesterday’s Green Bay Packers’ 31-24 defeat to the lowly Cincinnati Bengals exposed more weaknesses and vulnerabilities for the Packers. The Packers’ offensive line play was even shakier than last week and aside from a […]

Packers Begin Cuts, Woodson Talks Big

Charles Woodson

The Green Bay Packers began trimming their roster on Sunday, in order to get down to Tuesday’s league mandated 75-player limit. Three players got their pink slips – punter Durant Brooks, receiver JaRon Harris, and linebacker Stryker Sulak. None of these cuts are a surprise, but Brooks’ release means that the Packers have settled on […]

Green Bay Packers: Starting to Look Like the Real Deal

Kurt Warner

The Green Bay Packers hung on for a 44-37 preseason win over the defending NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals last night in Phoenix, but that really doesn’t begin to tell the story. A friend turned to me this morning and asked, “Do you ever remember a preseason when the Packers looked this good?” The answer is […]

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 […]

The Packers Cornerback Battle

While the Green Bay Packers certainly have some positions up for grabs this offseason – the entire offensive line, two defensive line spots, two outside linebacker spots, and fullback are in play, as well as who starts at safety alongside Nick Collins – there is one position that is more intriguing to me than any […]

Al Harris is the Best CB in the League

Al Harris will eat your lunch, fuck your wife and burn your house down!

What? Yeah, that’s what I said. I love Al Harris, but he’s certainly no Chuckles Woodson, and when he came back from his spleen injury this past season, I secretly thought Tramon Williams was playing better than Al, before he got hurt. Anyway, to the point… Through some complex mathematical formula akin to quarterback ratings […]

Dom Capers and the 3-4 – A Good Fit?

Dom Capers

After an unprecedented purge of defensive coaching staff, after much hemming and hawing and after much speculation, the Green Bay Packers have settled on former Houston Texans coach Dom Capers as their new defensive coordinator. I’m not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I like the hire. Dom Capers brings the type […]

The Pro Bowl and Packers Hall of Fame

Dorsey Levens

Today, I thought I’d put out some good news, in the midst of all the bad, pissing and moaning, etc. And so… The Pro Bowl First, I will say that I don’t watch the Pro Bowl. It bores me. It’s after the season, when I am about footballed-out (if that’s possible). Frankly, if there isn’t […]

The Packers Are Dead, Long Live The Packers

Aaron Rodgers

With yet another heartbreaking 4 points-or-less loss, the Green Bay Packers have all but assured that the playoffs will be out of their reach, with their 35-31 defeat at the hands of the Carolina Panthers. The Packers don’t deserve it this year, not this coaching staff, not this underachieving group of players. But it’s hard […]

Packers ‘Bearly’ Sneak by Chicago 37-3

Donald Lee is number 1.

Coming off two heartbreakingly close losses in a row, the Green Bay Packers desperately needed a win on Sunday to keep their division championship hopes alive. The Chicago Bears gave the Packers everything they had for the first two minutes or so, but in the end, Green Bay emerged from the hard fought game as […]

Packers vs. Colts Notes and Favre vs. Green Bay Becomes ESPN vs. Fox

Peyton Manning crying

Before I get to the mind numbing douchebaggery that is the latest Brett Favre fiasco, let me share a few quick observations and opinions regarding the Green Bay Packers’ 34-14 dismantling of the Indianapolis Colts. Aaron Rodgers continues to impress the NFL world, Packers fans and most importantly, his teammates. Not only has he played […]

Atari Bigby Returns, Ty Law Wants In

Ty Law

Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby finally returned to the practice field Thursday, after being sidelined with a balky hamstring since the week two game against the Detroit Lions. Bigby didn’t do a hell of a lot on his first day back – going through “limited practice” – but has a chance to play this […]

The Good News And The Better News For The Packers

Al Harris Tony Romo

It’s true that I’m not overly optimistic about anything, so, let’s start with the better news. Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris, who suffered a lacerated spleen in the Packers week three loss to the Dallas Cowboys, is on his way back. First reported by the National Football Post on Monday, Harris was cleared for […]

Packers vs. Bucanneers Quick Hits

I’m not ready to jump onto the “Fire Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy” bandwagon just yet, but man, oh man are the Green Bay Packers in trouble. Yesterday’s 30-21 loss was not nearly as close as the final score indicated. Here are some quick observations on what went wrong (a lot) and what went right […]

Packers Not As Good As We Thought

Tony Romo

The class of the NFC, the Green Bay Packers are not. The Dallas Cowboys made sure of that, with a thorough 27-16 victory last night at Lambeau Field. Pretty simply, the Green Bay Packers played some bad football. Other than the stellar play of cornerback Charles Woodson, who held one Terrell Owens to two catches […]

Packers vs. Lions Quick Hits

Nick Collins and Greg Jennings

As much as I hate to be a wet blanket, Green Bay Packers’ fans should not start chanting “Su-per-Bowl” just yet. Even though Aaron Rodgers continues to impress and the Packers came up with big play after big play, there is plenty of room to improve. The final score, as they say, doesn’t indicate how […]
