Stay Classy, Minnesota: McKinnie Booted From Pro Bowl Team

Bryant McKinnie

The Minnesota Vikings continued their long history of classy behavior over the weekend when tackle Bryant McKinnie, who had no business being in the game anyway, got kicked off the NFC Pro Bowl squad. How does one do such a thing? Well, skipping practice and not telling anyone is a good start. McKinnie blamed his […]

Vikings May Make Run At Donovan McNabb

Donovan McNabb

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb’s days in the city of brotherly love have seemingly been numbered for years, but there are indications the Eagles may actually be looking to move him this offseason. If they do, one very possible destination is Minnesota, where the Vikings have put themselves smack in the middle of The Third […]

Resentment on the Packers’ Coaching Staff?

Tom Clements

The Green Bay Packers may have some resentment to deal with on their coaching staff in the coming months. Back in early January the Packers denied the Chicago Bears permission to speak to quarterbacks coach Tom Clements about their open offensive coordinator position. At the time, I just laughed, but the Packers move may have […]

Vikings Are 40th Best All Time and What To Do With The NFL’s Archaic Playoff System

Erick Sklogund

Today’s guest blogger is Erick Sklogund. Sklogund is a Vikings beat writer and humor columnist for The Observer Herald in Le Seur, Minnesota. The corpse of the Minnesota Vikings’ 2009 season is still warm, but it’s not too soon to reflect on where this team stands among the all-time greats. First things first, though. With […]

Reaction To the Vikings’, Favre’s Demise

There was a wide range of reaction to the Minnesota Vikings’ loss to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship game on Sunday. To those of us who are Green Bay Packers’ fans, Brett Favre’s game-killing, bone-headed interception wasn’t a surprise. In fact, we knew all along that Favre would eventually force a ball […]

Hey, Minnesota

Talk some shit now you fucking ignorant assholes. What did I tell you? A choker always chokes. Good riddance.

It’s All About Brett

Brett Favre

Yup. It’s all about Brett Favre leading up to the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints showdown for the NFC Championship. Should we have expected anything different? No. The media has always splooged all over themselves when it comes to Favre, and even more so in recent years. Because you know – “Brett Favre just […]

The Rest of the Green Bay Packers News

Brad Childress

No, I’m not going to start doing a Green Bay Packers-related link dump every day, or even every week. I get much more satisfaction from writing stuff and then letting you guys shit all over it. Besides, Railbird Central already does that, and does it better than I would ever care to do it, with […]

Prince’s Stock is Dropping Rapidly

Prince

Prince is one of the great musicians of our time. He’s written fantastic songs like “Purple Rain,” “1999,” “Cream,” “Seven” and “Darling Nikki.” He’s pushed the boundaries of music and art. And he’s done all of this despite being from Minneapolis. As far as pop music icons go, I’d place him behind only Michael Jackson […]

Remembering the Last Time the Minnesota Vikings Played for the NFC Championship

It was January 17, 1999 when the Minnesota Vikings last played in the NFC Championship game. The Vikings were coming off an almost perfect, record-setting 1998 season and played host to the upstart NFC West champion Atlanta Falcons. Ed. note: Actually, Jeremy is right. I had totally forgotten about the 41-0 massacre at the hands […]

Did the Packers Choose Wisely in 2006?

Sean Payton

In 2006, the Green Bay Packers disposed of coach Mike Sherman. The team targeted several potential replacements, two of which are coaching against each other in the NFC Championship game this weekend. Those men are Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress and New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, who were joined by Mike McCarthy, current Dallas […]

Hey Brett, No Pressure

Brett Favre

It’s debatable whether Brett Favre is an abject failure if the Minnesota Vikings don’t win the Super Bowl this season. In total, the evidence would suggest otherwise – individually he’s had one of his best seasons and he’s already taken a Brad Childress-coached Vikings team further than it’s ever been. Still, Favre supposedly went to […]

Fran Tarkenton Still Doesn’t Like Brett Favre

Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Fran Tarkenton was giving current Minnesota Vikings and former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre the business before the season, and he’s still giving it to him. Why? Because like us, Tarkenton thinks Favre is dirty, filthy, scumbaggy, lying traitor. Before the season this is what Tarkenton said about Favre. I […]

Brett Favre Loves Pants On the Ground and Ass-Slapping

I’ll be honest. I had no idea what “Pants on the Ground” was until today. I don’t have any interest in who the new American Idol is going to be. I don’t care that Simon Cowell is leaving the show. I can’t remember who replaced that crazy broad Paula Abdul. If you, like me, don’t […]

No Love For Mike McCarthy

Mike McCarthy

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy got no love in the NFL Coach of the Year race, despite some speculation that he might. As we predicted, the Cincinnati Bengals’ Marvin Lewis ran away with the award. McCarthy finished… well, he didn’t get any votes, so he didn’t really finish anywhere. Oddly enough… or perhaps not […]

They Love Brett Favre In Cambodia

In honor of our favorite traitor quarterback and the dregs of the NFL – the Minnesota Vikings, who we wish all the bad fortune in the world – we thought today would be an appropriate time to whip out our latest video. Recently, a friend of the Total Packers family took a trip to Cambodia. […]

No One Wants to Coach in Chicago

Lovie Smith

Well, maybe not no one – Chicago Bears’ coach Lovie Smith probably still wants to coach there, but he hasn’t exactly been given a recipe that’s likely to result in success. After firing half of his staff, simply because the Bears’ organization was too cheap to do what they really wanted to do and fire […]

Woodson Packers’ Lone All Pro

Charles Woodson

In news that should really surprise no one, cornerback Charles Woodson is the Green Bay Packers lone member of the NFL All-Pro team. The All-Pro team is voted on my members of the Associated Press and made up of the top players from both conferences, unlike the Pro Bowl, which separates the squads into AFC […]

Woodson Picks Up Another Award And Rex Ryan Is a Douchebag

Charles Woodson

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year on Tuesday by a wide margin. On Wednesday, he picked up the Sporting News’ NFL defensive player of the year award, which is voted on by 636 players, coaches and executives. Woodson again finished first by a wide margin, receiving 241 […]

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 […]
