Not so deep in the confines of the Hall of Fame of the most-storied franchise in the NFL, four iconic silver statues named after the same franchise’s most-famous coach stand as a testament to 13 NFL Championships. Most would say that the trophies represent the four greatest of these championships: four Super Bowl victories, champions of a […]
It’s time for Super Bowl predictions! That’s right. It’s June and we don’t even have a labor deal yet, but the Super Bowl predictions have begun. The Sporting News likes the Green Bay Packers to repeat, beating the New England Patriots in the big one. Championship teams are often broken up by defections among the […]
We’re not the only ones who think the Green Bay Packers might have a Super Bowl hangover. Former New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi, a three-time Super Bowl champion, called out the team’s leaders after receiver Donald Driver said the players have no plans to hold organized workouts.
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 […]
Fox Sports’ Adam Schein compiled his third annual NFL organization rankings and not surprisingly, the Green Bay Packers came out on top, dethroning two-time winner, the New England Patriots. What does this mean? Probably not much, other than the Packers rate highly in several subjective categories. While the categories used to determine the rankings — […]
Pro Football Talk counted down the four worst moments in Green Bay Packers history since 1987, which was the last season with a work stoppage. Here’s their list. 4. Brett Favre’s return to Lambeau Field as a member of the Minnesota Vikings 3. 4th-and-26 (2003 NFC Divisional loss to Philadelphia) 2. Super Bowl XXXII loss […]
Okay, maybe you’re not ranked and maybe you are, but you probably at least know someone who’s ranked in the latest edition of ESPN’s power rankings. The worldwide leader ranked the top owners in the NFL this week, and the Green Bay Packers, who are publicly owned by more than 100,000 stockholders, came in third.
The Green Bay Packers will select at No. 32 in the first round of tonight’s NFL Draft and as you would expect, there have been some hits and plenty of misses at that particular spot in recent years. Here’s a look at the players taken at No. 32 in the past 10 years and what […]
Predictable? Yes. Correct? Not even close. The New England Patriots’ Tom Brady finished first in ESPN’s quarterback power rankings. While it’s hard to argue with the reigning NFL MVP and a three-time Super Bowl champion taking the top spot, it’s pretty easy to argue with the other two guys who finished ahead of the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers
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 […]
ESPN continued their NFL power ranking series with the coach rankings. So where is this year’s Super Bowl winning coach? The Green Bay Packers’ Mike McCarthy came in fourth. Leading the way was the New England Patriots’ Bill Belichick and his three Super Bowl wins.
Horseshit! That’s the first thing that came to mind when I heard this. Green Bay Packers fans are ranked as the fourth-most loyal fans in the NFL in the latest Brand Keys Sports Loyalty Index. In order, New England Patriots fans, Pittsburgh Steelers fans and Indianapolis Colts fans are considered more loyal than Packers fans. New York Jets fans came in fifth.
I’m not gonna lie. I love Desmond Howard. He’s one of my favorite players of all time, not just for his lone, full, killer season with the Green Bay Packers, but because I’m also a Michigan Wolverines fan, for reasons I won’t get into right now. In case you don’t remember those heady days at […]
Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews has been named defensive MVP by the Professional Football Writers of America and Pro Football Weekly. The two organizations worked together to choose All-NFL and All-Rookie teams, as well as select MVPs, coach of the year, etc. The Associated Press hands out the official NFL Defensive Player of […]
There was a point in the season when everyone thought the answer to the question was a foregone conclusion. Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews. Then, a series of injuries and near constant double and triple teams started to slow Matthews. That isn’t to say his presence wasn’t felt. Matthews opens things up for his […]
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 31-27 loss to the New England Patriots. After losing four games this season by three points, the Green Bay Packers have now lost two in a row by four points. It seems […]
Although Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy gave his usual there’s-nothing-to-see-here, I’m-right-and-you’re-wrong explanation, that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be questioned for the way he handled the end of the Packers loss to the New England Patriots. As you probably know, with more than 20 seconds left and no time outs, the Packers faced a fourth-and-1, […]
Matt Flynn is my new favorite Packer. The third-year quarterback more than held his own in his first start on the road against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots Sunday night. He dominated the first half, not making a mistake until a pick-six early in the second half that was wideout James Jones’ fault, […]
The Green Bay Packers played the best team in the NFL and played better football than them for three quarters with a backup quarterback. Unfortunately, professional football is a four-quarter game. The Packers faltered down the stretch and allowed the New England Patriots to pull out a 31-27 victory on their home field. With the […]
Steffen: The New England Patriots ought to temporarily change their name to the New England Buzzsaw, because that moniker has been lobbed their way a lot the last few weeks. They dropped 45 in consecutive weeks against the Lions and Jets before clownining the Bears 36-7, last Sunday. They are without a doubt the hottest […]
