Packers’ Special Teams Get Worse

Shawn Slocum

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who watched the Green Bay Packers play in 2009 – the team’s special teams were atrocious. That has been confirmed once again in the Dallas Morning News’ annual special teams rankings, where the Packers finished 31st. The rankings are compiled by ranking each team in 22 special […]

Four Year-One Starting Caliber Tackles in 2010 NFL Draft

Bryan Bulaga

The Green Bay Packers are certainly in the market for tackles this offseason. Both 2009 starters, Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher, are free agents. While the Packers may re-sign them simply because they don’t want to rely on two young and unproven tackles, both are at the end of the road and need to be […]

Packers Are 12/1 To Win 2011 Super Bowl

Lombardi Trophy

Since this year’s football season and Super Bowl are over, we may as well turn our attention to next season. On Monday, Vegas got in on the act by releasing their opening lines for teams to win Super Bowl XLV. The Green Bay Packers opened at 12/1, giving them the sixth best chance to win […]

Holmgren To Cleveland: We’re Brown With Envy

I wanted to make an analogy to crap, because that’s what the Cleveland Browns play like, but maybe not for that much longer. After beating the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, the Browns pulled out a win for the second day in a row. Former Green Bay Packers’ and Seattle Seahawks’ coach Mike Holmgren has […]

Packers, Steelers Going In Opposite Directions

A pretty normal site around Pittsburgh

The Green Bay Packers and their next opponent, the Pittsburgh Steelers, are two teams going in opposite directions. December and January was supposed to be the toughest portion of the Packers’ schedule, with Chicago, Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Arizona on the docket. All four were playoff teams last season and a visit to Pittsburgh to play […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Lions

Monty: The Detroit Lions once again demonstrated how bad their defense is in their victory over the Cleveland Browns last week. The Lions allowed Brady Quinn to throw for 304 yards and four touchdowns in that game. Quinn previously had thrown three touchdowns – in his career. In other words, the Green Bay Packers will […]

Matthew Stafford Is The Man! But Not Really

The legend of Detroit Lions rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford began yesterday. Stafford threw for five touchdowns and a rookie-record 422 yards, as the Lions rallied for a 38-37 victory over the Cleveland Browns. However, that isn’t quite the whole story. Stafford threw the game-winning touchdown pass with zero seconds on the clock after suffering a […]

Welcome to the Team, Jake Allen – You’re Cut!

Jake Allen

Update: Allen was claimed on waivers by the offensively challenged Cleveland Browns. ———- The Green Bay Packers promoted wide receiver Jake Allen from the practice squad on October 27, after injuries to Jordy Nelson, Brett Swain and Jermichael Finley had decimated their receiving corp. Today, they gave Allen the old heave ho. Allen played briefly […]

Browns Try to Taint Holmgren’s Legacy

Think hard, Walrus.

He’s one of the greatest coaches in Green Bay Packers’ history. He’s one of the greatest coaches (and worst general managers) in Seattle Seahawks’ history. Now, the Cleveland Browns want to ruin all of that. According to Cleveland.com’s Tony Rossi and former Browns’ great Jim Brown’s loose lips, Browns owner Randy Lerner is trying to […]

Packers In For a Field Day Against Buccaneers

Welcome to the NFL, rook!

Now that I think we’ve sufficiently covered the stench of the Green Bay Packers 38-26 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, it’s time to turn our attention to this weekend’s opponent, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Like the Packers pre-Favre opponent, the Cleveland Browns, the Buccaneers are bad. In fact, they’re the only winless team left in […]

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) […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Browns

Total Packers takes a look at todays’s Green Bay Packers, Cleveland Browns game and offers their predictions. Monty: The Cleveland Browns are bad, we know that. The Browns are last in the league in defense. They are second to last in offense. Their lone win was against another very bad team – the Buffalo Bills […]

Browns Could Use Practice Squad Against Packers

Eric Mangini

Let’s be honest, the Cleveland Browns are the NFL’s practice squad. However, they still have a game against the Green Bay Packers this Sunday and the odds of winning are looking even worse than usual for the Browns. The Browns had 12 players out with the flu on Wednesday – two of which returned to […]

Browns Game Takes on Extra Meaning for Matthews

Clay Matthews

For Green Bay Packers rookie outside linebacker Clay Matthews, this weekend’s game against the Browns in Cleveland will be more than the cakewalk it will be for the rest of the Packers. It will be a homecoming of sorts. Matthews’ father, Clay Jr., played linebacker for 16 seasons with the Browns (1978-93) after being drafted […]

Packers Game Against the Browns Just Got Easier

The Green Bay Packers are playing the Cleveland Browns this weekend. I thought I’d point that out because no one is really talking about the game, and with good reason. The Browns rank 31st in the league on offense, ahead of only the Oakland Raiders and superstar quarterback JaMarcus Russell, where they average 240 yards […]

Packers Can’t Overlook the Cleveland Browns

It would be easy for the Green Bay Packers to look past the 1-5 Cleveland Browns this weekend in anticipation of Favre Bowl II the following weekend (Nov. 1), when Brett Favre returns to Lambeau Field as a Minnesota Viking. The Vikings’ visit is easily one of the most anticipated games in Packers history, and […]

Trade Rumors Around the NFC North

Julius Peppers

The NFL trade deadline is Tuesday, and while there are very few in-season trades made in the NFL, that doesn’t stop people from speculating about what could or should happen. The Green Bay Packers have been linked to several names, but more on that in a moment. The most persistent rumor revolving around any NFC […]

Packers Are About to Get Healthy

I’m not talking about the injuries that have plagued the Green Bay Packers thus far, although the return of safety Atari Bigby and left tackle Chad Clifton to the staring lineup can only help, I’m talking about the schedule. The Packers are about to go into what is shaping up as the easiest portion of […]

Packers vs. Browns Game Notes

Tramon Williams

The Green Bay Packers beat the Cleveland Browns 17-0 Saturday night in the Upper Midwest Shrine Game. While beating the Browns, a team that may be in the running for the NFL’s worst this season, in an exhibition game isn’t anything to get terribly excited about, there were some interesting developments to come out of […]

The Curious Case of Jarrett Bush

Update: On Friday, Bush signed an offer sheet with the Tennessee Titans. The Packers have until next Friday to match the offer, if they so choose. Anyone who has followed this blog since the beginning is well aware of my out-and-out disdain for Green Bay Packers cornerback, Jarrett Bush. Bush is, in a word – […]
