Packers Could Face Bears Twice In A Row

Jay Cutler

The Green Bay Packers closed last season in Phoenix with a game against the Arizona Cardinals. They went back to Arizona the following week for the wild card game. The same scenario could play out again this year, only with the NFC North champion Chicago Bears taking the place of the Cardinals. The Packers face […]

Big Game, Big Win

Aaron Rodgers

You could say a lot of things about the Green Bay Packers 45-17 victory over the New York Giants. You could say it’s good to have Aaron Rodgers as your quarterback. Rodgers, returning from a concussion, threw for 404 yards and four touchdowns against the No. 2 defense in the league. You could say Giants […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Giants

Justin Tuck

Steffen: Many are expecting the New York Giants to fall apart this week after a humiliating defeat at the hands of Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles in week 15. I don’t see it playing out that way. The Giants are a veteran team and they have a lot to play for. This is essentially […]

Let’s Play Linebacker Roulette!

Frank Zombo

Like betting on black 22, the Green Bay Packers don’t have any real idea what’s going to happen with their outside linebackers when they face the New York Giants, on Sunday. Starter Frank Zombo has essentially been ruled out with a sprained knee. Zombo tried to practice on Friday and the results weren’t promising. Officially, […]

Clay Matthews Is Back

Clay Matthews

Although he hasn’t missed a game because of it, Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews hasn’t been through a full practice since October because of a shin injury. That changed Wednesday, when Matthews participated in 11-on-11 drills in full pads for the first time since before the Jets game. Since the Jets game, which is […]

Here’s The Packers’ Full Playoff Picture

Eli Manning

If the Green Bay Packers win their final two games, they’re in the playoffs as a wild card, this we know. However, there’s another, much-more-convoluted scenario where the Packers could still make it. First, the Packers need to beat the New York Giants, this week. If they lose to the Giants, it doesn’t matter what […]

Rodgers Will Return This Week

Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers will have their catalyst when they face the New York Giants in their biggest game of the season, this week. Aaron Rodgers is set to return from a concussion-induced one-game absence, according to Jason Wilde. Yes, after seeing his 46-game consecutive starts streak (including playoffs) snapped when he was inactive for […]

Giants Rolle Offers A Guarantee, But There’s Trouble In New York

Antrel Rolle

The Green Bay Packers will face either a fired up New York Giants team this weekend or a New York Giants team in disarray. Hell, maybe both. The Giants took an epic loss on Sunday, blowing a 21-point fourth quarter lead to the division rival Philadelphia Eagles. Put the Packers in place of the Giants […]

Win And We’re In

Michael Vick

It’s just that simple for the Green Bay Packers. Despite the loss to the New England Patriots dropping them to 8-6, the Packers simply need to win their last two games to make the playoffs as a wild card. The Chicago Bears will clinch the NFC North with a win tonight against the Joe Webb-led […]

Vikings’ Shithole Collapses

A fitting metaphor for their season. The shithole that the Minnesota Vikings call home, the Metrodome, collapsed overnight. Or at least the roof did. There is now a hole in the middle of it from the build-up of snow — the Cities reportedly got close to 20 inches yesterday. The Vikings game against the New […]

Will Blackmon Is Off The Market

Will Blackmon

After the Green Bay Packers gave Aaron Stecker a tryout two weeks ago, we speculated that the team might be interested in bringing return man/safety Will Blackmon back. They won’t get that opportunity. Blackmon, who was among the Packers’ final roster cuts, was signed by the New York Giants. Blackmon tore his ACL early in […]

Packers Got Lucky With Woodson, Were Really After Arrington

National Football Post founder and former Green Bay Packers vice president Andrew Brandt has written a few posts about free agency in the NFL, recently. The short of his message is this: it usually doesn’t work out. One of the exceptions to the rule, however, was the Packers signing of cornerback Charles Woodson. As we […]

Charlie Peprah Back In Green Bay

The Green Bay Packers finally made their big offseason free agent signing by bringing in safety Charlie Peprah, who was with the team from 2006-08 before spending last year with the Atlanta Falcons. Peprah notched one tackle in two games for Atlanta in 2009. He was released by the Packers following training camp, last season. […]

Devin Aromashodu and Bears have muddied up the playoff picture

After the Chicago Bears 36-30 win over the once-thought-to-be-indestructible Minnesota Vikings last night, there are plenty of playoff scenarios that could play out on the final week of the season. We know two things for sure. First, the six teams in the playoffs are the New Orleans Saints, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals, Green […]

NFC Playoff Picture: Clearing Out the Trash

Eli Manning

While there are still eight teams vying for two wild card slots in the AFC, the NFC picture has become pretty clear after Sunday’s games. The Green Bay Packers currently hold the fifth seed, behind the division-leading New Orleans Saints (13-0, No. 1 seed), Minnesota Vikings (11-2, 2), Philadelphia Eagles (9-4, 3) and Arizona Cardinals […]

Green Bay Packers: Playoff Picture Looking Clear

The Giants have carried themselves back into the playoff picture

The simplest way for the Green Bay Packers to make the playoffs is to keep winning, but things are looking pretty clear after this past weekend’s slate of games. The Packers, at 8-4, currently hold the No. 6 seed in the NFC. The Philadelphia Eagles (8-4) hold the other wild card slot and the New […]

There may be a 40 percent chance of snow when the Green Bay Packers meet the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, but thankfully, the Packers playoff chances are a bit higher than that.
