Rodgers Wanted To Play In San Francisco

Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers admits he wanted to play for the San Francisco 49ers, who drafted Alex Smith instead in 2005. In the end, it looks like things worked out for everyone… except the 49ers.

Clusterfuck Update 7/26: Free Agent Deals And McNabb To Vikings

Donovan McNabb

Teams can’t officially sign free agents until Friday, but that didn’t stop several players from agreeing to contracts. That, plus the Minnesota Vikings pursuit of Donovan McNabb and Nnamdi Asomugha’s first suitor.

Best Quarterbacks In NFL History: Green Bay Packers

Brett Favre

Certainly, this is another subjective list, but it’s hard to argue with the Green Bay Packers as the franchise with the best quarterbacks in NFL history. The important thing to note here is quarterbacks is plural, so this isn’t a Johnny Unitas vs. Joe Montana argument. NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek recently took a look at every NFL […]

Matthews Makes Top 10 Defensive Players

Clay Matthews

After last week’s edition of ESPN’s NFL power rankings, top helmets in the NFL, I half expected this week’s edition to focus on best colors. Of course, they went and pulled something somewhat relevant out — top 10 defensive players. Clay Matthews was the only member of the Green Bay Packers to make the top 10, finishing fifth. Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu was the consensus No. 1.

Remember Aaron Rodgers’ Draft Day?

By now, you know the story of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ experience at the NFL Draft. Rodgers was under consideration for the No. 1 overall pick. The San Francisco 49ers ended up choosing Utah quarterback Alex Smith. Jon Gruden and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers passed on Rodgers several picks later.

Matthews Fourth-Ranked Linebacker

Clay Matthews

It’s another installment of ESPN’s NFL power rankings. This time — linebackers. The Green Bay Packers’ Clay Matthews came in fourth in the rankings. The San Francisco 49ers’ Patrick Willis was the runaway leader in the voting. Willis was followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ James Harrison and the Dallas Cowboys’ DeMarcus Ware, who were separated […]

Carson Palmer Another Option For Vikings

Carson Palmer

Although several analysts have suggested Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb could be the guy who eventually winds up behind center for the Minnesota Vikings, the team has a lot of options. Peter King suggests the Cincinnati Bengals Carson Palmer is one of them. Palmer has said he won’t play for the Bengals again and who could blame him?

Dom Capers Isn’t Going Anywhere

Dom Capers

Perhaps lost in the hype surrounding the Green Bay Packers’ matchup with the Chicago Bears for the NFC Championship is this important nugget — Packers defensive coordinator isn’t going anywhere. There was talk towards the end of the season Capers should be and could be considered for an NFL head coaching job because of the […]

TiVo Time: San Francisco 49ers

Greg Jennings

It’s like t-shirt time, only better, because no one from Jersey is involved. Shawn Neuser takes a look at the Green Bay Packers 34-16 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. The Green Bay Packers did what they needed to in dispatching the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Here is a closer look at the key […]

Donald Driver: One More Time

For some reason, this touchdown reception by Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver against the San Francisco 49ers never gets old. So, watch it one more time before the Nazis at the NFL have it pulled from YouTube. If you heard the local radio broadcast, Larry McCarren yelled, “The old man’s still got it!” as […]

Packers Offense Soars, Defense Struggles

Greg Jennings

The Green Bay Packers started slow, at one point trailing 6-0, but after an electrifying second quarter touchdown catch by Greg Jennings, there was no looking back for the Green Bay offense. Aaron Rodgers continued his hot streak and the Packers defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-16. As I pointed out in my prediction, 49ers […]

Predictions: Packers vs. 49ers

Troy Smith

Shawn: The San Francisco 49ers are still in contention to win their pathetic division, and they are coming off probably their best game of the season. So, they will at least start this game with the belief that they can play with the Green Bay Packers. It will be up to the Packers to dispel […]

Clay Matthews Should Have A Field Day On Sunday

Clay Matthews

The San Francisco 49ers clearly intend on throwing any and everyone they have at Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews, on Sunday. Matthews and his league-leading 11.5 sacks will be lined up across from rookie right tackle Anthony Davis. Granted, Davis was a first-round pick this season, but he’s struggled in every game with […]

Johnson: Singletary Is A Motivational Speaker

Mike Singletary

Since the Green Bay Packers are playing the San Francisco 49ers this week, I thought it would be interesting to point this out. Former Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins coach Jimmy Johnson said 49ers coach Mike Singletary is like a motivational speaker posing as a football coach. I’m paraphrasing a bit, but the message is […]

Packers Could Pursue Michael Lewis

This is just speculation, but the fact that the Green Bay Packers lost starting strong safety Morgan Burnett to a season-ending ACL tear and the San Francisco 49ers released Micheal Lewis, the team’s opening-day starter at strong safety, seems like a nice coincidence. Lewis had a falling out with coach Mike Singletary last week and […]

NFL Could Be Headed To London Full Time

The NFL has been playing one game each season in London for several years now. That isn’t likely to affect the Green Bay Packers under it’s current format because Packers fans and the team would go bat shit if the league proposed moving a home game out of Lambeau Field, particularly to another country. Somewhat […]
