Packers Wrap Up Playoff Berth With Dominating Effort

The Seahawks secondary had trouble keeping up with Greg Jennings

The Green Bay Packers destroyed the Seattle Seahawks 48-10 and in conjunction with a loss by the New York Giants, wrapped up their first playoff berth in the Aaron Rodgers era. The Packers’ defense was dominant again, rebounding from their terrible performance in Pittsburgh a week earlier. They intercepted Seahawks’ quarterback Matt Hasselbeck four times […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Ravens

Monty: There are a lot of reasons why the Green Bay Packers are going to beat the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night. There’s one reason why they won’t – I’m going to be at the game. Not counting preseason, the Packers haven’t won a game that I’ve attended since a 2003 victory over the San […]

Five Reasons Not To Be Excited About The Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers have won three straight games after an embarrassing loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers almost derailed their season. The Packers sit at 7-4, in prime position for a wild card berth. There are a lot of things to like about the team, right now. But we’re pessimists and therefore, we can’t […]

Offense Dominant, But Win Is Costly For Packers

Aaron Rodgers was the man.

It only took 10 games, but the Green Bay Packers’ offense on Sunday finally looked like it did in the preseason – dominant. Aaron Rodgers threw for 344 yards and two scores while Ryan Grant added 129 yards rushing and a touchdown of his own as the Packers beat the San Francisco 49ers 30-24, improving […]

Packers In For a Field Day Against Buccaneers

Welcome to the NFL, rook!

Now that I think we’ve sufficiently covered the stench of the Green Bay Packers 38-26 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, it’s time to turn our attention to this weekend’s opponent, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Like the Packers pre-Favre opponent, the Cleveland Browns, the Buccaneers are bad. In fact, they’re the only winless team left in […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Vikings

Total Packers takes a look at today’s Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings game and offers their predictions. Monty: Forget about Brett Favre for a second. This game comes down to two things: turnovers and pressure. If the Packers can win the turnover battle and keep Aaron Rodgers off the ground, they’ll win going away. The […]

Everything Goes According to Script for Packers

This is exactly how it was supposed to play out for the Green Bay Packers. The Packers would dominate the Cleveland Browns and the Minnesota Vikings would lose on the road to the Pittsburgh Steelers, setting up a battle for first place in the NFC North next week in Lambeau Field. Technically, the Packers (4-2) […]

Shedding Some Light on Packers Signing of Ahman Green

When the Green Bay Packers signed Ahman Green on Wednesday there was a range of responses – from “awesome!” to “what the hell?” Well, let’s get this out of the way right at the top, Green isn’t the player he was when he left the Packers via free agency to sign with the Houston Texans. […]

Packers Shape Up, But It’s Only the Rams

The Green Bay Packers got a much needed win on Sunday, and the team looked better than it did the previous week against the Cincinnati Bengals. However, it should be pointed out that the St. Louis Rams are one of the worst teams in football. Still, a win is a win, and although the game […]

The Green Bay Packers Are Bad

There, I said it. The Green Bay Packers are bad, and it’s depressing. It’s become pretty apparent why the Green Bay Packers are bad, too, after a 31-24 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals at Lambeau Field. This is a Bengals team that scored seven points last week against the Denver Broncos. That’s seven points against […]

Bengals 31, Packers 24 – Observations and Opinions

Chad Ochocinco Lambeau Leap

To quote The Jeffrey Lebwoski, the plan has crashed into the mountain. More painfully one sided than the close score suggests, yesterday’s Green Bay Packers’ 31-24 defeat to the lowly Cincinnati Bengals exposed more weaknesses and vulnerabilities for the Packers. The Packers’ offensive line play was even shakier than last week and aside from a […]

Final Notes On The Packers vs. Bears

The Green Bay Packers escaped Lambeau Field with a 21-15 victory over the Chicago Bears last night. I say escaped because despite a rousing performance by the Packers’ defense, which forced Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler into four interceptions and held Matt Forte to just 55 yards rushing, the team was lucky to come out with […]

Derrick Frost Gone, Finally

On Monday, the Green Bay Packers closed the book on what was probably their biggest mistake of the season. That’s when they released punter Derrick Frost. Good riddance, I say. The move was long overdue. Frost finished his career as a Packer ranked 26th in the league in both gross (42.1 yards) and net (36.1 yards) punting average. […]

The Packers Are Dead, Long Live The Packers

Aaron Rodgers

With yet another heartbreaking 4 points-or-less loss, the Green Bay Packers have all but assured that the playoffs will be out of their reach, with their 35-31 defeat at the hands of the Carolina Panthers. The Packers don’t deserve it this year, not this coaching staff, not this underachieving group of players. But it’s hard […]

Packers ‘Bearly’ Sneak by Chicago 37-3

Donald Lee is number 1.

Coming off two heartbreakingly close losses in a row, the Green Bay Packers desperately needed a win on Sunday to keep their division championship hopes alive. The Chicago Bears gave the Packers everything they had for the first two minutes or so, but in the end, Green Bay emerged from the hard fought game as […]

Vikings vs. Packers: Who Sucked And Who Didn’t

Nick Barnett has been lost for the season.

Every week the Green Bay Packers are starting to look more and more like a team that simply won’t live up to expectations. Yesterday, the Packers lost yet another close game to an inferior opponent, this time, 28-27 to the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers should be better than this. Maybe it’s time to accept that […]

Packers vs. Titans Game Notes

LenDale White

This was one of the Green Bay Packers’ more disappointing losses of the year, in part because the Packers actually played well for most of the game. The lines held their own on both sides of the ball against the normally dominant Tennessee Titans’ lines. In the end, the Packers were overwhelmed when it counted most. When […]

Packers vs. Colts Notes and Favre vs. Green Bay Becomes ESPN vs. Fox

Peyton Manning crying

Before I get to the mind numbing douchebaggery that is the latest Brett Favre fiasco, let me share a few quick observations and opinions regarding the Green Bay Packers’ 34-14 dismantling of the Indianapolis Colts. Aaron Rodgers continues to impress the NFL world, Packers fans and most importantly, his teammates. Not only has he played […]

Packers vs. Seahawks Quick Notes

Greg Jennings

I’d be a lot more excited about the Green Bay Packers 27-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks if I didn’t already know that Seattle is truly an awful team. But as they say in Cliche Town, “a win is a win.” THE GOOD Aaron Rodgers is still playing well. On top of that, his shoulder […]

Packers vs. Bucanneers Quick Hits

I’m not ready to jump onto the “Fire Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy” bandwagon just yet, but man, oh man are the Green Bay Packers in trouble. Yesterday’s 30-21 loss was not nearly as close as the final score indicated. Here are some quick observations on what went wrong (a lot) and what went right […]
