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 Have Some Work To Do In the Middle

Early Doucet

The Green Bay Packers defense was exposed by the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The NFL’s second-ranked unit fell apart against the vaunted Cardinals passing attack, much the same way they did three weeks earlier against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s now pretty clear why these things have happened. The middle of the Packers defense if vulnerable […]

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 […]

Statistically Speaking, Loss Not the Worse Thing for Packers

Packers are still in good position for a run

The Green Bay Packers were manhandled by the Pittsburgh Steelers offense on Sunday. Some might say the Packers were exposed. I might say the Packers were outcoached. Scratch that. I would say the Packers were outcoached. Still, that doesn’t particularly matter at this point. The Packers are 9-5 and, if they beat the Seattle Seahawks […]

Packers Stray From Winning Game Plan

Lets devise a game plan to get this guy on the field more often.

During the Green Bay Packers five-game winning streak, their game plan was pretty simple – control the clock, take care of the football and let the defense loose on the opposing quarterback. And just as soon as I patted coach Mike McCarthy and defensive coordinator Dom Capers on the back for devising a winning strategy, […]

Packers’ Defense Fails to Show in Steelers Loss

Oh, am I supposed to be covering this guy?

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense was suspect Sunday without its injured star safety Troy Polamalu, and the Green Bay Packers took full advantage. The problem was the other side of the ball, where the Packers’ supposedly stout defense was decimated by Ben Roethlisberger and the flailing Steelers’ offense. Roethlisberger was 29-of-46 for a franchise record 503 […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Steelers

Pressuring Roethlisburger will be key

Steffen: The Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers are heading in opposite directions. The Packers are riding high, winning their last five games in a row. The Steelers have succumbed to injuries and in-fighting and have been loser of their last five contests. On paper, the Packers should dominate, but as we know, football, […]

Packers, Steelers Going In Opposite Directions

A pretty normal site around Pittsburgh

The Green Bay Packers and their next opponent, the Pittsburgh Steelers, are two teams going in opposite directions. December and January was supposed to be the toughest portion of the Packers’ schedule, with Chicago, Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Arizona on the docket. All four were playoff teams last season and a visit to Pittsburgh to play […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s All Part Of The Plan

Ted Thompson creeps out the Green bay media at least week

The NFL’s annual spending orgy that we call free agency has pretty much come and gone. Predictably, a large contingent of Green Bay Packers fans have been lamenting the fact that, yet again, GM Ted Thompson failed to sign a single average player to a multi-million dollar contract. Coming off an utterly disappointing season, the […]

The Super Bowl is Rigged

How else can you explain the end of yesterday’s slugfest between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals? With five seconds left, Pittsburgh got the benefit of a questionable call after linebacker LaMarr Woodley got his hand on the football as Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner was preparing to throw. The ball came loose, Pittsburgh recovered […]

Fuck You, ESPN – Part Deux

It’s official. ESPN hates the Green Bay Packers and their fans. After debating the true home of the name and ultimately crowning some place I’ve never heard of “Titletown,” despite the fact that the moniker has belonged to a certain town in northeastern Wisconsin since well before I was born, ESPN has once again delivered […]
