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 — […]

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

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’ Five-Year Draft Run Best In NFL

Clay Matthews

The Green Bay Packers have the best draft run over the past five years, according to Matt Maiocco of Comcast Sportsnet. The team still has 57 percent of the players they’ve chosen on their roster (27 out of 47) — only five teams have more. The rankings also consider how many star players, busts and how […]

Packers At Bottom Of Special Teams Rankings Again

Shawn Slocum

The Green Bay Packers are near the bottom of the Dallas Morning News’ annual special teams rankings for the third year in a row. They finished 29th, up two spots from last season. The 2008 team finished 26th and special teams coach Mike Stock was forced into retirement after that performance. The rankings are compiled […]

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 […]

Brett Favre: Old Man In The Rain

I thought it appropriate to pass on this story in anticipation of tonight’s season-opening (finally!) tilt between Brett Favre’s Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints. Some of you may well be pulling for the old gray mare. I, of course, will be pulling for him to get killed (although slightly less so than usual, […]

The Thing About Preseason Predictions

Is they don’t mean anything. Sure, the Green Bay Packers are the preseason darling of many — the fashionable Super Bowl choice, if you will. What does that get the Packers? High expectations. Granted, there’s no reason this year’s version of the Packers shouldn’t have high expectations entering the season, but it’s July 1. No […]

Vikings Still Angry, All Of Wisconsin Sheds A Tear

It appears the Minnesota Vikings still aren’t over their NFC Championship game loss to the New Orleans Saints. According to that fat fuck, drug-abusing defensive tackle Pat Williams, the Vikings are still angry. Oooooooooh! We’re all real fucking frightened! “It was kind of hard (at the beginning) because it was on everybody’s mind,” Williams said. […]

Brett Favre’s Ankle: X Marks The Spot

Now that we all know Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Brett Favre has had ankle surgery and we know where he’s vulnerable, some players have taken note. New Orleans’ Saints safety Darren Sharper has publicly stated what a lot of defenders around the NFC North have to be thinking. Well y’all seen Brett had surgery on that […]

Some Interesting Free Agent Possibilities For Packers

Ted Thompson

Although there are players available – like Antrel Rolle, Dunta Robinson and Darren Sproles – who would make great additions to the Green Bay Packers in free agency, we all know who we’re dealing with here. We’re dealing with Ted Thompson and during his tenure with the Packers, Thompson has signed exactly one outside free […]

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 […]

The Super Bowl Is About A Lot of Things

Sure, there’s a football game to be played between the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts, today, but the Super Bowl is about a lot of things. Like partying, for instance. And no one does it quite like Minnesota Vikings tackle Bryant McKinnie. You know, the guy who got kicked off the Pro Bowl squad […]

The Super Bowl Is Almost Upon Us

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a pretty big football game this Sunday. Yes, the Super Bowl is almost here. As a Green Bay Packers fan, it’s tough to have a rooting interest. The Packers have been out of the tourney for a number of weeks and you can no longer root for whoever is […]

Two Packers Make NFL All-Decade Team

The NFL announced its 2000s All-Decade Team on Sunday during the Pro Bowl that me and no one else watched, and two Green Bay Packers made the squad. Actually, we should say one member of the Green Bay Packers and one former Packer. They were cornerback Charles Woodson and safety Darren Sharper. After playing eight […]

Mike Nolan Spurned Packers For Family

Since we’ve been foaming at the mouth for the past two days about Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings’ playoff implosion, we’ve ultimately ignored some Green Bay Packers “news.” One of those items is the fact that former Denver Broncos and current Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Mike Nolan admitted that he turned the Packers down […]

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.
