Best Quarterbacks In NFL History: Green Bay Packers

Brett Favre

Certainly, this is another subjective list, but it’s hard to argue with the Green Bay Packers as the franchise with the best quarterbacks in NFL history. The important thing to note here is quarterbacks is plural, so this isn’t a Johnny Unitas vs. Joe Montana argument. NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek recently took a look at every NFL […]

Fox Sports Ranks Packers No. 1 NFL Organization

Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson

Fox Sports’ Adam Schein compiled his third annual NFL organization rankings and not surprisingly, the Green Bay Packers came out on top, dethroning two-time winner, the New England Patriots. What does this mean? Probably not much, other than the Packers rate highly in several subjective categories. While the categories used to determine the rankings — […]

Packers’ Four Worst Moments Since 1987

Brett Favre

Pro Football Talk counted down the four worst moments in Green Bay Packers history since 1987, which was the last season with a work stoppage. Here’s their list. 4. Brett Favre’s return to Lambeau Field as a member of the Minnesota Vikings 3. 4th-and-26 (2003 NFC Divisional loss to Philadelphia) 2. Super Bowl XXXII loss […]

You Are Ranked In ESPN’s Power Rankings

Dan Rooney

Okay, maybe you’re not ranked and maybe you are, but you probably at least know someone who’s ranked in the latest edition of ESPN’s power rankings. The worldwide leader ranked the top owners in the NFL this week, and the Green Bay Packers, who are publicly owned by more than 100,000 stockholders, came in third.

A Historical Look At No. 32

Drew Brees

The Green Bay Packers will select at No. 32 in the first round of tonight’s NFL Draft and as you would expect, there have been some hits and plenty of misses at that particular spot in recent years. Here’s a look at the players taken at No. 32 in the past 10 years and what […]

Rodgers Shafted In Quarterback Rankings

Aaron Rodgers

Predictable? Yes. Correct? Not even close. The New England Patriots’ Tom Brady finished first in ESPN’s quarterback power rankings. While it’s hard to argue with the reigning NFL MVP and a three-time Super Bowl champion taking the top spot, it’s pretty easy to argue with the other two guys who finished ahead of the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers

Matthews Fourth-Ranked Linebacker

Clay Matthews

It’s another installment of ESPN’s NFL power rankings. This time — linebackers. The Green Bay Packers’ Clay Matthews came in fourth in the rankings. The San Francisco 49ers’ Patrick Willis was the runaway leader in the voting. Willis was followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ James Harrison and the Dallas Cowboys’ DeMarcus Ware, who were separated […]

Ranking Coaches: McCarthy Is Fourth

Mike McCarthy

ESPN continued their NFL power ranking series with the coach rankings. So where is this year’s Super Bowl winning coach? The Green Bay Packers’ Mike McCarthy came in fourth. Leading the way was the New England Patriots’ Bill Belichick and his three Super Bowl wins.

Packers Fans Aren’t Most Loyal In NFL

Packers fans

Horseshit! That’s the first thing that came to mind when I heard this. Green Bay Packers fans are ranked as the fourth-most loyal fans in the NFL in the latest Brand Keys Sports Loyalty Index. In order, New England Patriots fans, Pittsburgh Steelers fans and Indianapolis Colts fans are considered more loyal than Packers fans. New York Jets fans came in fifth.

Desmond Howard In The House!

I’m not gonna lie. I love Desmond Howard. He’s one of my favorite players of all time, not just for his lone, full, killer season with the Green Bay Packers, but because I’m also a Michigan Wolverines fan, for reasons I won’t get into right now. In case you don’t remember those heady days at […]

Matthews Picks Up Another Defensive MVP

Clay Matthews

Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews has been named defensive MVP by the Professional Football Writers of America and Pro Football Weekly. The two organizations worked together to choose All-NFL and All-Rookie teams, as well as select MVPs, coach of the year, etc. The Associated Press hands out the official NFL Defensive Player of […]

Who Is The Defensive Player Of The Year?

Clay Matthews

There was a point in the season when everyone thought the answer to the question was a foregone conclusion. Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews. Then, a series of injuries and near constant double and triple teams started to slow Matthews. That isn’t to say his presence wasn’t felt. Matthews opens things up for his […]

TiVo Time: New England Patriots

Brandon Jackson

It’s like t-shirt time, only better, because no one from Jersey is involved. Shawn Neuser takes a look at the Green Bay Packers 31-27 loss to the New England Patriots. After losing four games this season by three points, the Green Bay Packers have now lost two in a row by four points. It seems […]

What’s With Mike McCarthy And Clock Management?

Mike McCarthy

Although Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy gave his usual there’s-nothing-to-see-here, I’m-right-and-you’re-wrong explanation, that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be questioned for the way he handled the end of the Packers loss to the New England Patriots. As you probably know, with more than 20 seconds left and no time outs, the Packers faced a fourth-and-1, […]

Thank You, Matt Flynn

Matt Flynn is my new favorite Packer. The third-year quarterback more than held his own in his first start on the road against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots Sunday night.  He dominated the first half, not making a mistake until a pick-six early in the second half that was wideout James Jones’ fault, […]

Packers Hang Tough, But Fail When It Matters Most

Matt Flynn

The Green Bay Packers played the best team in the NFL and played better football than them for three quarters with a backup quarterback. Unfortunately, professional football is a four-quarter game. The Packers faltered down the stretch and allowed the New England Patriots to pull out a 31-27 victory on their home field. With the […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Patriots

Tom Brady

Steffen: The New England Patriots ought to temporarily change their name to the New England Buzzsaw, because that moniker has been lobbed their way a lot the last few weeks. They dropped 45 in consecutive weeks against the Lions and Jets before clownining the Bears 36-7, last Sunday. They are without a doubt the hottest […]

McCarthy Changes Tune: Door Open For Rodgers To Play

Aaron Rodgers

Just about everyone was ready to declare quarterback Aaron Rodgers a no go for the Green Bay Packers’ game against the New England Patriots. Not so fast. Today, Rodgers attended practice for the first time since suffering a concussion on Sunday. Coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers is working his way through the medical process, the […]

Rodgers Is A Long Shot To Play

Aaron Rodgers

Although nothing has changed since Wednesday, quarterback Aaron Rodgers looks unlikely to play Sunday when the Green Bay Packers travel to face the New England Patriots. The company line, thus far, is a decision on Rodgers won’t be made until Saturday, but the quarterback hasn’t done anything football-related, this week. Instead, the Packers have held […]

No Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers

For those of you worried about Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his availability for this weekend’s game, continue to be worried. Rodgers did not practice on Wednesday, while he continues to recover from his second concussion of the season. Although the move wasn’t unexpected, it casts further doubt over whether Rodgers will be […]
