How The Packers Beat The Cardinals

Look for a lot of this

Surely, not much can be taken from the Green Bay Packers’ 33-7 drubbing of the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner played only one quarter and threw only six passes and the Cardinals employed a vanilla game plan. But hold the phone for a minute. The Packers not only demonstrated that they can […]

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 […]

Packers Stray From Winning Game Plan

Lets devise a game plan to get this guy on the field more often.

During the Green Bay Packers five-game winning streak, their game plan was pretty simple – control the clock, take care of the football and let the defense loose on the opposing quarterback. And just as soon as I patted coach Mike McCarthy and defensive coordinator Dom Capers on the back for devising a winning strategy, […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Ravens

Monty: There are a lot of reasons why the Green Bay Packers are going to beat the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night. There’s one reason why they won’t – I’m going to be at the game. Not counting preseason, the Packers haven’t won a game that I’ve attended since a 2003 victory over the San […]

Five Reasons Not To Be Excited About The Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers have won three straight games after an embarrassing loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers almost derailed their season. The Packers sit at 7-4, in prime position for a wild card berth. There are a lot of things to like about the team, right now. But we’re pessimists and therefore, we can’t […]

Just Like Old Times, Packers Beat Lions

Or maybe just like last time. The Green Bay Packers beat the Detroit Lions 34-12, in a game reminiscent of the last time the two teams met in October. The game wasn’t really in doubt at any point, but the Packers hardly looked dominant against an opponent that was clearly overmatched. That was less due […]

Do the Packers Miss Anthony Smith?

Anthony Smith

That’s the word, at least according to one report. The Packers cut safety Anthony Smith during their final roster cutdown, instead deciding to keep Jarret Bush and Aaron Rouse. The team also traded for Derrick Martin. Rouse has since been cut. Smith was pushing Atari Bigby for playing time during training camp and was easily […]

Injuries Will Play Huge Roll for Packers the Next Two Weeks

Daryn Colledge

Each year in the NFL, the most successful teams do one of two things — they either don’t have injuries, or they overcome injuries. That’s not to say that those successful teams don’t also have other things in common – they have positive turnover margins, they limit penalties, etc. But without fail, they do one […]

Packers Inexplicably Cut Aaron Rouse

I guess this is fighting fire with fire. If your team is dangerously thin at safety, what do you do? Cut one of your remaining safeties and sign one who has never played in your system, that’s what. At least if you’re Green Bay Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson. Look, I have been a Ted […]

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 […]

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 […]

Packers Big Offseason Move: Overpay To Re-sign Jarrett Bush

Jarrett Bush doing what he does best - fucking up.

Incredulous. That’s the only way I can describe the way I feel about the Green Bay Packers’ decision to match the Tennessee Titans’ offer to cornerback Jarrett Bush. No, wait. Here’s another way: Blinded with rage. As I have detailed on more than one occasion, Jarrett Bush is terrible. He’s an idiot. He’s a moron. […]

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 – […]

Free Agency 2009: Our Guys

Mark Tauscher

The 2009 free agency signing period begins on February 27 and the Green Bay Packers are in very good shape, at approximately $25 million below the projected $123 million salary cap. Before we reveal our list of free agency demands for 2009, let’s take a look at the Packers own free agents. The most substantial […]

Tis the Season of Giving

Jarrett Bush showing you while hes still on the team.

And that’s just what the Green Bay Packers did last night – gave those scumbags from Chicago a 20-17 overtime victory. This one turned to shit in the third quarter, when the cursed Jarrett Bush let a Chicago punt bounce off his backside. After that, the Bears gained momentum that never came back to the […]

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 […]

Al Harris May Be Gone For The Year

Reports are leaking out of Green Bay declaring Al Harris’ season officially over. The Packers’ cornerback left last night’s loss to Dallas due, reportedly, to cramps. After all, as sideline reporter Andrea Kremer kept informing us, it was extremely humid in Green Bay last night. After the game it was reported that Harris was pissing […]

Ted Thompson: Master of Disaster!

Ted Thompson

From out of left field, the Green Bay Packers punter of last season and the only one in camp for most of this year, Jon Ryan, was cut yesterday to make room for¬†former Washington Redskins’ punter Derrick Frost. Also cut was linebacker Abdul Hodge, who had a pretty nice training camp and showed real potential […]

Packers Final Preseason Game of 2008!

Jarrett Bush

The Green Bay Packers final preseason game is only exciting because it means that opening day is just around the corner. With most of the roster spots set, there is very little drama tonight in terms of position battles. There are a couple things to keep an eye on, though. First, how will Monty’s favorite […]

Jarrett Bush – You’re Cut!

Aaron Rodgers sacked

From the “I Got 99 Problems But a Bitch Ain’t One” file came this past Saturday night’s preseason loss (34-6) to the disgustingly bad (5-11, last year) San Francisco 49ers. First, having witnessed this debacle first hand, I have to say, Jarrett Bush – you’re cut! It seemed each time I looked up from my […]
