Packers Wrong Not to Make a Play for Vick

As you’ve likely heard by now, Michael Vick signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, yesterday. While Vick signing with the Eagles doesn’t really affect the Green Bay Packers, the fact that the Packers didn’t make a play for Vick is interesting. Read Andrew Brandt’s Q&A about how the Vick to Philly deal went down. As we’ve […]

What If Michael Vick Became A Packer?

The AP released a small piece today, indicating that GM Ted Thompson and the Green Bay Packers may be interested in looking at Michael Vick. This is interesting because, as far as I know, this is the first bit of national media speculation involving the Packers and Vick. Of course, some of us at Total […]

Brett Favre – The Aftermath

Only God can save me now.

Now we survey the wreckage. Brett Favre’s decision to remain retired instead of joining the Minnesota Vikings, has some serious ramifications. The Vikings organization… hahahahahahahhahahaha!… sorry, lost my train of thought. Oh yeah, the Vikings. Let’s start at the top, with the chief bonehead. Vikings coach Brad Childress released a statement yesterday, saying the Favre […]

Green Bay Packers: 5 Reasons for Excitement

Hi. Im here to save Mike McCarthys job.

With training camp beginning at the end of the month, I am starting to get excited for the upcoming Green Bay Packers season. Since we’re in the down time between the Packers mini-camp and training camp, I figured now is as good a time as any to get you excited too. There are some very […]

Driver Pissed. Kampman Silent. Tramon Rich. Harrell Healthy?

Gettin

Gettin’ paid, bitch! All of this came out on the first day of the Green Bay Packers’ OTAs, which, for the uninitiated stands for organized team activities. OTAs are basically a way for coaches to get the team together and start practice before the NFL officially allows them to start practice. OTAs are not mandatory, […]

The Packers Cornerback Battle

While the Green Bay Packers certainly have some positions up for grabs this offseason – the entire offensive line, two defensive line spots, two outside linebacker spots, and fullback are in play, as well as who starts at safety alongside Nick Collins – there is one position that is more intriguing to me than any […]

An Open Letter To Brett Favre

Dear Brett, With each passing day, it appears more and more likely that you will in fact return – again – to play in the NFL. This time around with one of the crappiest franchises in pro sports, the Minnesota Vikings. Are you seriously going through with this? I mean, after last year’s fiasco of […]

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 […]

Final Word On The Packers Draft, For Now

Today is the day that everyone and their mother hand out draft grades. Well, grading a draft class immediately after said draft is bullshit. No one can adequately grade a draft class for at least three years. These players haven’t been on the field yet. They haven’t seen the playbook. They haven’t met their teammates. […]

Thompson to Trade Back? Again?

Knowshon Moreno at No. 23? Weeks – no, months of analysis and speculation culminate tomorrow when the 2009 NFL Draft begins. You have to hand it to the NFL – no other professional league has turned their draft process into such an anticipated event. I toyed with the idea of posting a complete mock draft, […]

Raji, Smith Favorites For Packers In NFL Draft

Andre Smith

The NFL Draft is this weekend, and after an inactive free agent signing period, Ted Thompson will once again employ his build-through-the-draft philosophy to help strengthen the Green Bay Packers. Said philosophy will likely make the Packers the youngest team in the NFL for the third consecutive season. The Packers have a variety of needs, […]

Packers Big Offseason Move: Overpay To Re-sign Jarrett Bush

Jarrett Bush doing what he does best - fucking up.

Incredulous. That’s the only way I can describe the way I feel about the Green Bay Packers’ decision to match the Tennessee Titans’ offer to cornerback Jarrett Bush. No, wait. Here’s another way: Blinded with rage. As I have detailed on more than one occasion, Jarrett Bush is terrible. He’s an idiot. He’s a moron. […]

Packers Will Retire No. 4… Later

The Green Bay Packers are still committed to retiring Brett Favre’s No. 4 jersey. Just not quite yet. Packers president Mark Murphy spoke about retiring Favre’s number Saturday, during the team’s annual Fan Fest celebration. “Obviously we will do it,” Murphy said, according to the Green Bay Press Gazette. “We’ve made that commitment. He deserves […]

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 […]

Free Agency 2009: Week 2 Update

Let’s hope our new safety has learned his lesson. It’s true. After the wild and wacky first weekend of free agency and all the money that was thrown around, I needed a break. Besides that, after the first weekend, there wasn’t a lot of movement. As we chronicled, the Packers lost out on Chris Canty […]

Cole Signs with Seattle, Canty on the Radar

Chris Canty

Update: Chris Canty has signed with the New York Giants, who now have 42 defensive lineman. And while it was exciting that the Green Bay Packers were talked about on the first weekend of free agency, the guys at Acme Packing Company got it right — Canty wasn’t worth it. The Green Bay Packers lost one […]

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 […]

Free Agency 2009: Our Guys

Mark Tauscher

The 2009 free agency signing period begins on February 27 and the Green Bay Packers are in very good shape, at approximately $25 million below the projected $123 million salary cap. Before we reveal our list of free agency demands for 2009, let’s take a look at the Packers own free agents. The most substantial […]

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 […]
