He hasn’t decided if he’ll return for a second season, but Brett Favre did let his Minnesota Vikings’ teammates know one thing this week — he’s a cheap ass mofo. Players participating in offseason workouts — obviously, this wouldn’t include Favre — returned to team headquarters in Eden Prairie, Minn., to find a pair of […]

This has nothing to do with the Green Bay Packers, but Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is the talk of the NFL this week after a district attorney in Georgia decided not to file sexual assault charges against the two-time Super Bowl champion. A 20-year-old college student had accused Big Ben of sexually assaulting her […]

There’s no formal legislation, and lawmakers still need to pay for state schools and other necessities, but efforts to build a new Minnesota Vikings stadium appear to be heating up in the state Legislature. A top Democratic senator told the Star-Tribune most of the pieces of a stadium proposal were “pretty much drafted” and that […]

Drunken driving charges against Green Bay Packers’ tight end Spencer Havner are stalled out for now. The Nevada County (Calif.) district attorney’s office has returned the case against Havner to the California Highway Patrol, finding insufficient evidence to file any charges, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Havner was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving March […]

Former Green Bay Packers defensive end Michael Montgomery passed a physical Monday and agreed to terms with the Minnesota Vikings after spending a day visiting with team officials, the Star-Tribune’s Judd Zulgad reports. He is the second free agent of note to join the Vikings this offseason, joining kickoff specialist Rhys Lloyd. A sixth-round pick by […]

Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly will go on trial in Harris County, Texas, May 21 on charges of codeine possession.

The San Fransisco 49ers are at odds with general manager Scot McCloughan, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that could play out in favor of the Green Bay Packers. ESPN reports San Fransisco has placed McCloughan on an extended leave of absence with just over a month before the draft. Sources said McCloughan has been dealing […]

Brett Favre

In perhaps the most unshocking news of the offseason, Brett Favre told Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” he still doesn’t know if he’ll play again next season, and made it clear a decision won’t be coming anytime soon. Pressed for his thoughts on playing in 2010, Favre said “Well Jay, it’s only been a […]

Jay Leno returns to “The Tonight Show” after the Winter Olympics, and one of his first guests is a great one: Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre. His appearance is listed for March 4 on the show’s Web site. It will be one of Favre’s first public appearances since — literally — throwing away the Vikings’ […]

The Minnesota Vikings organization is plowing ahead with its fruitless efforts at getting a new publicly-funded stadium. The team now has 10 lobbyists working at the state Capitol on its behalf as it seeks the public’s help to pay for a Metrodome replacement. Seven of them registered with the state this month alone. Team official […]

It was a playoff game for the ages, although Packer fans may not look back on it too fondly. Kurt Warner and Aaron Rodgers put on a passing extravaganza, tossing for a combined 801 yards and nine touchdowns in the NFC wild card game Sunday night. But it was Arizona’s defense that came up with […]

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin is still questionable for Sunday’s wild-game game against the Green Bay Packers with a high ankle sprain and will likely be a game-time decision. Boldin, who is also treating a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee, has been getting treatment virtually around the clock. He’s caught 84 […]

The Minnesota Vikings lost some big-time leverage in its quest for a new stadium. The company behind the plan to lure the NFL back to Los Angeles announced Tuesday that the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills will be the first teams it will try to relocate. Majestic Realty Co. managing partner John Semcken said the […]

Bobby April

The Green Bay Packers would be foolish not to pursue ex-Buffalo Bills’ special teams coach Bobby April in the offseason. April, 56, exercised a clause in his contract Tuesday making him a free agent after the Bills organization told him Monday he and the other assistant coaches had the right to pursue other coaching jobs […]

My days are numbered....

Ah, how the mighty have fallen. Picked by some in the preseason to win the Super Bowl, the Chicago Bears instead struggled to a 7-9 record and failed to make the playoffs for the third season in a row. In response, the team took out a full-page ad in two of Chicago’s papers Monday apologizing […]

The Wizard of Green Bay teleported himself down to Glendale, Ariz., for Sundays game.

It’s hard to take too much away from the Green Bay Packers’ 33-7 drumming of the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. It was a dominating performance, but Arizona rested most of its starters and coach Ken Whisenhunt played it safe, not showing much of what he will do when the two teams meet again next week […]

Hey, what can I say? Well work on it.

2009 is done and gone (thank god for that), and it’s the time of year when many people set themselves up for failure by making New Year’s resolutions. I imagine many on the Green Bay Packers’ coaching staff do the same, so we here at Total Packers have compiled some suggestions of what we think […]

One of the more entertaining stories coming out of the Chicago Bears’ delightful OT victory over the slumping Minnesota Vikings involves Bears quarterback/mouth breather extraordinaire Jay Cutler.

Crosby was error-free Sunday, but there are at least two games left this season.

Slumping Green Bay Packers’ kicker Mason Crosby did what he was supposed to do Sunday in the team’s 48-10 blowout of the Seattle Seahawks – make field goals and extra points. But you’d think he pitched in as quarterback or hit a 70-yard, game-winning kick the way everyone – including Green Bay Press-Gazette columnists Pete […]

Its been a tough season for Packers kicker Mason Crosby.

The New Orleans Saints cut kicker John Carney loose Tuesday, begging the question of whether the Green Bay Packers should bring him in as competition for the struggling Mason Crosby. Carney, who ranks third in NFL history with 2,044 points scored, returned to the Saints this past summer after the team learned Garrett Hartley would […]
