Where Are They Now? Packers’ Draft Busts: 2000-2010

Brian Brohm

The Green Bay Packers have had their share of draft busts over the years. Some have been epic (Tony Mandarich), while others have snuck out of town almost unnoticed (Terrence Murphy). Well, thankfully we’re here to dredge up your past failures, point our gnarled, crooked, judgmental fingers at you and cackle. For you’ve shamed the […]

Trgovac Could Be On His Way Out

Mike Trgovac

Green Bay Packers defensive line coach Mike Trgovac looks like he’s going to have some job offers once the Packers season ends. The Denver Broncos — who’ve hired Trgovac’s former boss, John Fox, as their head coach — appear ready to offer Trgovac their defensive coordinator job. It’s a role Trgovac is familiar with — […]

An Uprising Of Support From Broncos Country

Jay Cutler

Face it. No one likes the Chicago Bears except for FIBs and maybe two people in Iowa. The point was once again reinforced when Steffen, the other mastermind behind this venerable institution known as Total Packers, asked one of our friends, and one of biggest Denver Broncos fans on the planet, to ask his brethren […]

Dom Capers Isn’t Going Anywhere

Dom Capers

Perhaps lost in the hype surrounding the Green Bay Packers’ matchup with the Chicago Bears for the NFC Championship is this important nugget — Packers defensive coordinator isn’t going anywhere. There was talk towards the end of the season Capers should be and could be considered for an NFL head coaching job because of the […]

The Best Rivalry In The NFL Is…

We’re biased, but we obviously think the best rivalry in the NFL is the Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings. Frankly, I wouldn’t piss on a Vikings fan if he were on fire and I felt that way even before a long-time hero decided he needed to stab an entire fan base in the back. […]

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 […]

NFL Could Be Headed To London Full Time

The NFL has been playing one game each season in London for several years now. That isn’t likely to affect the Green Bay Packers under it’s current format because Packers fans and the team would go bat shit if the league proposed moving a home game out of Lambeau Field, particularly to another country. Somewhat […]

Is Westbrook Still An Option In Green Bay?

Earlier in the offseason, the Green Bay Packers expressed interest in free agent running back Brian Westbrook. The former Philadelphia Eagles star has had injury problems his entire career and missed eight games with concussions in 2009, but when healthy, Westbrook has been a force, twice rushing for 1,200 yards. Now 30, Westbrook appears near […]

Packers Could Trade Up And Who They Might Land

Eric Berry

One thing we haven’t discussed in relation to this week’s NFL Draft is the possibility of the Green Bay Packers trading up. The reason we haven’t discussed it is because Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson has only traded up twice in his five years on the job. He did, of course, move up last year […]

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 […]

Were the Packers Successful in the Last Decade?

Lambeau Leap

There are many ways to measure success in the NFL – regular season wins, division championships, Super Bowl titles, playoff wins, etc. You could look at any number of those things and come away with the conclusion that the Green Bay Packers were successful in the 00s. For example, the Packers averaged 9.5 wins per […]

Mike Nolan Spurned Packers For Family

Since we’ve been foaming at the mouth for the past two days about Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings’ playoff implosion, we’ve ultimately ignored some Green Bay Packers “news.” One of those items is the fact that former Denver Broncos and current Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Mike Nolan admitted that he turned the Packers down […]

Woodson Wins Defensive Player of the Year By a Landslide

Charles Woodson

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson put the question to rest today. He’s the NFL Defensive Player of the Year and he won by a wide margin over New York Jets’ cornerback Darrelle Revis. Woodson received 28 votes to Revis’ 14. The Denver Broncos’ Elvis Dumervil and the New Orleans Saints’ Darren Sharper tied for […]

Should There Be Penalties For Sitting Starters?

When you buy a ticket do you want to watch this guy play, or Peyton Manning?

Although the Indianapolis Colts are at the center of this discussion after they pulled the plug early against the New York Jets on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers very much factor into the conversation because, as we’ve discussed, Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals could very well be meaningless for the Pack. It brings up […]

Jets’ Revis Woodson’s Main Competition For Defensive MVP

This cat is good

Around these parts it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that the Green Bay Packers’ Charles Woodson will be the NFL Defensive Player of the Year. We’ve looked at the competition and crunched the numbers. But we may have overlooked one guy – New York Jets’ cornerback Darrelle Revis. Previously, our discussion centered around the Minnesota […]

Woodson Defensive POM, And Why He Should Win Defensive POY

Charles Woodson is looking up at no one in this race.

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month on Thursday, for the month of November. This is Woodson’s second such award this season, the first coming for his play in September. Additionally, Woodson has twice been named the NFC’s defensive player of the week, most recently for his […]

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. […]

Brett Favre in Denver?

Brett Favre Wrangler

Brett Favre has been spotted in Denver. How do we know this? Total Packers was sent this report originally posted on the Mile High Report. While I have no reason to doubt Brett Favre is indeed in Denver, it’s highly unlikely he’d make any sort of comeback-related trip without first alerting Rachel Nichols and ESPN. […]

Oh Javon, How We (Do Not) Miss Thee!

Never have I had such ill will towards a single NFL player not from that sorry excuse for a state called Minnesota or that cesspool known as Chicago, than I have had for Javon Walker since he demanded that the Packers trade him. There were times I would see him running down the field (one […]
