Packers Wrap Up Playoff Berth With Dominating Effort

The Seahawks secondary had trouble keeping up with Greg Jennings

The Green Bay Packers destroyed the Seattle Seahawks 48-10 and in conjunction with a loss by the New York Giants, wrapped up their first playoff berth in the Aaron Rodgers era. The Packers’ defense was dominant again, rebounding from their terrible performance in Pittsburgh a week earlier. They intercepted Seahawks’ quarterback Matt Hasselbeck four times […]

Jermichael! Jermichael! Jermichael!

There’s a case of the Jan Bradys going around the Green Bay Packers’ locker room. Playing the role of Marcia – tight end Jermichael Finley. The Journal Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein raised some eyebrows Friday with his story on what’s becoming known as “the Jermichael Finley question” in blogging circles. Namely, are Packers coaches focusing the […]

Packers Hold Off Ravens in Sloppy 27-14 Win

Packers overcome Ravens to keep playoff hopes alive

Much ado was made about the Baltimore Ravens’ defense before Monday night’s matchup against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Fortunately, it didn’t amount to much. Aaron Rodgers stepped up and, despite throwing two picks, tallied 263 yards and three touchdowns as the Packers beat the Ravens 27-14 Monday night, keeping the team’s hopes […]

Yesterday, we took a look at five reasons not to be excited about the Green Bay Packers, making the argument that the team has major flaws that may haunt them down the stretch and into the playoffs. That said, we fully expect the Green Bay Packers to make the playoffs. However, this isn’t a team […]

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 […]

Offense Dominant, But Win Is Costly For Packers

Aaron Rodgers was the man.

It only took 10 games, but the Green Bay Packers’ offense on Sunday finally looked like it did in the preseason – dominant. Aaron Rodgers threw for 344 yards and two scores while Ryan Grant added 129 yards rushing and a touchdown of his own as the Packers beat the San Francisco 49ers 30-24, improving […]

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 […]

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 […]

Greg Jennings: Just Give Me the Damn Ball!

Taking a page out of Keyshawn Johnson’s book, Green Bay Packers’ receiver Greg Jennings has put the team on notice: just give me the damn ball! Actually, those weren’t Jennings’ exact words – that’s the title of Keyshawn’s book – but the sentiment was the same. Jennings, who has a measly 11 catches for 240 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Final Notes On The Packers vs. Bears

The Green Bay Packers escaped Lambeau Field with a 21-15 victory over the Chicago Bears last night. I say escaped because despite a rousing performance by the Packers’ defense, which forced Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler into four interceptions and held Matt Forte to just 55 yards rushing, the team was lucky to come out with […]

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 […]

Jennings Deal 3 Years, $27 Million

As we reported earlier, Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings is about to get paid. ESPN says the deal isn’t finalized. However, earlier, Milwaukee’s Fox 6 reported that it was. So let me cut through the bullshit – Jennings deal is all but signed. As ESPN reports, the Packers will pay Jennings $27 million in […]

Collins May Hold Out, Jennings Negotiations Progressing

Update: Milwaukee’s Fox 6 has reported that Jennings’ deal is done. The deal is expected to make him the second highest paid receiver in the game, behind Arizona’s Larry Fitzgerald. More on the actual numbers as they become available. It’s the good, the bad and the ugly at Green Bay Packers minicamp this week (although […]

Nick Collins’ Disappearing Act and Upcoming Distractions

Nick Collins

As the Green Bay Packers open their first mandatory minicamp of the offseason today, the biggest question is whether safety Nick Collins will practice. Collins, the Packers starting strong safety last season, made a brief appearance in Green Bay last week – only the second day he showed up at any of the Packers OTAs. […]

Driver Pissed. Kampman Silent. Tramon Rich. Harrell Healthy?

Gettin

Gettin’ paid, bitch! All of this came out on the first day of the Green Bay Packers’ OTAs, which, for the uninitiated stands for organized team activities. OTAs are basically a way for coaches to get the team together and start practice before the NFL officially allows them to start practice. OTAs are not mandatory, […]

Thompson to Trade Back? Again?

Knowshon Moreno at No. 23? Weeks – no, months of analysis and speculation culminate tomorrow when the 2009 NFL Draft begins. You have to hand it to the NFL – no other professional league has turned their draft process into such an anticipated event. I toyed with the idea of posting a complete mock draft, […]

It’s All Part Of The Plan

Ted Thompson creeps out the Green bay media at least week

The NFL’s annual spending orgy that we call free agency has pretty much come and gone. Predictably, a large contingent of Green Bay Packers fans have been lamenting the fact that, yet again, GM Ted Thompson failed to sign a single average player to a multi-million dollar contract. Coming off an utterly disappointing season, the […]
