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 […]

Packers In Trouble At Linebacker, Too

Frank Zombo

While everyone in the great state of Wisconsin is concerned about Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his availability for Sunday’s game after suffering his second concussion of the season, his status will be up in the air as he undergoes tests throughout the week. The injury news isn’t getting any better for the […]

Jenkins May Be Latest Packer Out For The Year

Cullen Jenkins

Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins didn’t play a snap on Sunday. In fact, he didn’t attend a single practice in the past week. Jenkins has been staying off his injured calf, which he re-injured against San Francisco. The injury is likely to cost Jenkins another week and might end his season. “You can’t […]

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. […]

It’s Time Aaron Rodgers Entered The MVP Conversation

Aaron Rodgers

It would be a lot easier to make this argument if the Green Bay Packers had beaten the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, but it’s nonetheless time Aaron Rodgers entered the MVP conversation. Rodgers has been nothing short of spectacular over the Packers’ last three games. In fact, he’s carried a Packers offense that has little-to-no […]

Here’s That Brett Favre Hit, For Your Enjoyment

Here’s a little Minnesota Vikings carnage porn for you — Brett Favre taking the hit that lacerated his chin and put him out of Sunday’s 28-18 loss to the New England Patriots. Favre received eight stitches. The hit came courtesy of Myron Pryor. We’re sure the Nazis from the NFL will make sure YouTube pulls […]

As The Season Continues Its Downward Spiral, Vikings Waive Randy Moss

The Minnesota Vikings have reportedly waived receiver Randy Moss, whom the team acquired in a trade with the New England Patriots in early October. Moss caught one pass in Sunday’s loss to the Patriots and after the game he questioned the Vikings’ strategy and coaching staff. According to Michael Lombardi, Moss didn’t return with the […]

Vikings Get Moss For Third-Round Pick, Packers Keep Thumb In Ass

Randy Moss

Well, that was easy enough. In the span of 24 hours the Green Bay Packers watched the running back everyone said they needed get traded to Seattle for a fourth-round pick and the receiver they were too stubborn to acquire in 2007 get traded to their arch rival for a third-round pick, moving at least […]

Vikings Reportedly Close To Acquiring Randy Moss

After failing to land Vincent Jackson earlier this season, the Minnesota Vikings may now get the playmaker they’ve lacked in the passing game this season. Per Jay Glazer, the team is close to reacquiring receiver Randy Moss from the New England Patriots. The deal is reportedly contingent on Moss working out a new contract with […]

Tom Brady

The Sunday night games are Oct. 24 vs. the Vikings at Lambeau Field, Nov. 7 vs. the Cowboys at Lambeau Field, and Dec. 29 […]

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 […]

Packers Are 12/1 To Win 2011 Super Bowl

Lombardi Trophy

Since this year’s football season and Super Bowl are over, we may as well turn our attention to next season. On Monday, Vegas got in on the act by releasing their opening lines for teams to win Super Bowl XLV. The Green Bay Packers opened at 12/1, giving them the sixth best chance to win […]

Packers Defensive Line Will Win Super Bowl

The statement alone is preposterous – the Green Bay Packers defensive line will lead the team to a Super Bowl title – but the statistics back it up. We’re talking about the Defensive Hog Index, developed by Cold Hard Football Facts. The Green Bay Packers rank first this season and that’s significant because, since it’s […]

Anthony Smith in Hunt for Starting Safety Spot?

Anthony Smith Randy Moss

Anthony Smith, whom the Green Bay Packers picked up as a free agent this offseason, may find himself in the hunt for a starting safety spot when training camp opens. Smith has been lining up with the Packers No. 1 defense during OTAs, which means absolutely nothing other than last year’s starters, Atari Bigby and […]
