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 […]

Woodson Wins Defensive Player of the Month Again. Does This Clinch It?

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson was named the NFC’s Defensive Player of the Month for December, the third time he’s won the honor this season. Woodson also won the award in September and November. New Orleans Saints safety Darren Sharper won the award in October. This is the first time anyone has ever won […]

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 […]

Should There Be Penalties For Sitting Starters?

When you buy a ticket do you want to watch this guy play, or Peyton Manning?

Although the Indianapolis Colts are at the center of this discussion after they pulled the plug early against the New York Jets on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers very much factor into the conversation because, as we’ve discussed, Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals could very well be meaningless for the Pack. It brings up […]

Has Revis Edged Woodson For Defensive Player of the Year?

Defensive player of the year? I know someone who has something to say about that.

We’ve handed Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Charles Woodson the defensive player of the year award already, but noted that his strongest competition is likely to come from New York Jets’ cornerback Darrelle Revis. Well, after the last two weeks, it appears the race isn’t quite over, and in fact, is probably closer than we imagine. […]

It’s Not Just Mason Crosby – All NFL Kickers Suck

Its a good thing everyone else sucks, too.

We certainly take our share of shots at Green Bay Pacekers’ kicker Mason Crosby around here, but the New York Times did an interesting analysis that shows the NFL’s kickers as a whole pretty much suck. Last season, kickers made 84.5 percent of their field goals – an all-time high. So far this season, that […]

Jets’ Revis Woodson’s Main Competition For Defensive MVP

This cat is good

Around these parts it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that the Green Bay Packers’ Charles Woodson will be the NFL Defensive Player of the Year. We’ve looked at the competition and crunched the numbers. But we may have overlooked one guy – New York Jets’ cornerback Darrelle Revis. Previously, our discussion centered around the Minnesota […]

Has Favre Put the Packers On the Hot Seat?

Brett Favre

Sometimes, well… most of the time, no… all of the time, we wish Brett Favre would just keep his piehole shut. No, this has nothing to do with his aw shucks, good-ole-boy act or what he is or isn’t saying to Green Bay Packers fans. This has to do with very serious consequences the Packers […]

Favre May Not Play 16, Addresses Team

Brett Favre

Some interesting news came out of Minnesota today. Former Green Bay Packers quarterback and current Minnesota Vikings scumbag Brett Favre said that he may not be able to play all 16 games this year. That is, not that he doesn’t want to play all 16, but more that he would sit if his health isn’t […]

Favre a Dividing Force in Minnesota?

Brett Favre

Well, you had to know this would happen. It appears that one Brett Favre is creating “issues” or perhaps a “schism” in the Minnesota Vikings locker room, something that can only be good for the Green Bay Packers and the rest of the NFC North. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that several Vikings favor the team’s […]

Illustrating The Vikings Chances: Brett Favre Statistical Breakdown

A lot has been said about what Brett Favre will mean to the Minnesota Vikings. Certainly, I think it’s fair to say the Vikings are now the favorite to win the division. Some pundits have tapped them as the favorite to win the Super Bowl. But hold the phone. The Vikings were going to be […]

Surprise! Favre To Meet With Childress About Comeback

Brett Favre

Never saw this coming. Never in a million years. ESPN’s Ed Werder is reporting that Brett Favre will meet with Minnesota Vikings’ coach Brad Childress to discuss a possible comeback. There has been all kinds of speculation that something like this would happen since Favre was granted his release from the New York Jets. While […]

Door Open for Favre to Return

Brett Favre

From the files of The Story, And Person, That Just Wouldn’t Go Away comes the nugget that one Brett Lorenzo Favre has gained his release from the New York Jets, clearing the way for him to sign with any NFL team should he decide to unretire… again. So, let’s say Favre gets the itch to […]

Free Agency 2009: Day 1 Update

Who is this guy? Read on.

Who is this guy? Read on. Being that we are totally anal about everything Green Bay Packers here at Total Packers (hence the name Total Packers, I guess), we have been keeping a close eye on all the free agent developments since the league’s business year began last night. And… It’s been a whirlwind first […]

Favre Makes it Official, Flips Ted the Bird

Brett Favre

There’s a lot of speculation out there that Brett Favre’s retirement from the New York Jets this week might not take. After all, we’ve seen the “retire”/unretire scenario play out before, less than a year ago with the Green Bay Packers. This time, however, it’s official. Brett Favre has filed his retirement papers with the […]

Brett Favre Retires, One Year Too Late

Brett Favre has informed the New York Jets he plans to retire. As all of you recall, he also told the Green Bay Packers the same thing last offseason, but sources think Favre is done for good this time. ESPN, which is home to all things Brett Favre, broke the story this morning and included […]

Favre Finished?

Brett Favre

I feel stupid even writing it, because no one knows what King Brett Favre is going to do. Frankly, I could care less. As you may recall, I swore off Brett earlier this season after his conversation with the fine folks up in Detroit. However, I know some of our readers are still firmly planted […]

Packers vs. Saints Recap

Aaron Rodgers

In the first half of the Green Bay Packers excruciating 51-29 loss to the New Orleans Saints, there were a few questionable calls and non-calls that went New Orleans’ way. Something stunk about a lot of those (the Drew Brees intentional grounding non-call, for example) and had the game stayed close, I would have made […]

Brett Favre: Something Isn’t Quite Right Here

Brett Favre

That was the thought that kept running through my head yesterday as I watched Brett Favre throw the ball around in a New York Jets uniform. It wasn’t just the non-familiar uniform though. It was the whole way Brett carried himself. Brett is a boisterous, excitable guy, which is part of the reason we loved […]

Internal Packers Email: Mark Murphy on the Favre Trade

Well, I’ve been sitting on this for a little while, for various reasons, but in the lull leading up to week one of the NFL season, I’ve decided that now is the time. For what, you ask? Well, in case you didn’t have enough back in July and early August, we here at Total Packers […]
