If Sunday night's loss to the Giants felt odd, it's because the Packers almost always been within one score in their losses with Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy. We scour the history to provide some context.

The Green Bay Packers got beat fair and square Sunday night against the New York Giants. The Giants were just the better team in every aspect and they really brought to light some of the areas the Packers are lacking because of injuries to star players.
The first thing is obviously the offensive line. Aaron Rodgers was sacked five times Sunday night and was constantly getting...
We love that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers can get into the spirit of Movember and rock a powerful mustache for the whole world to see when he took on the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football. What we didn’t expect was for Rodgers to give the viewing audience at home a little taste of Zoolander’s famous Blue Steel.
Of course Movember is when you will see men wear awkward...
This is not a report card that Packers' players will want to post on their refrigerators as an example of work well done. No, this is the type that gets hidden in backpacks for as long as possible with the hope that, if enough time passes, it can just be forgotten about.

The Packers took a beating on Sunday night but their NFC North hopes are firmly within their grasp. "Sometimes it takes a loss" to focus on the areas that need improvement, Aaron Rodgers said.
Last night’s Giants game wasn’t exactly a must win, but it was pretty close.
The Giants limped into the bye week off of two ugly losses and then had to play the Packers, one of the hottest teams in the NFL. After a sluggish start for Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers and the Pack were fully hitting their stride and entered the game on a five game winning streak.
And just when everyone...
The Packers are hoping they don’t see their #12 in this predicament on Sunday night
Packers Offensive Line vs. Giants Defensive Line
This is probably THE key to this game for the Packers. Their offensive line has struggled when all of their regular starters were healthy and in position. Now add to that a shuffled line to account for the loss of right tackle Bryan Bulaga against...
It’d be nice if Packers TE Jermichael Finley would get going and help the Packers crack the code of cover-2 defenses.
Now that you’ve had some time to digest the Packers losing to the Giants, ask yourself this:
Is your opinion of the Packers now any different than your opinion before the embarrassment against the Giants?
Mine isn’t. Here’s why:
We already knew the offensive...
Looking to play a quick game of “Where’s Waldo?” during an NFL game this Sunday? Hate to spoil your fun, but it’s not going to take very long to find him.
As the winter season is now upon us, the NFL has released its latest line of cold-weather apparel, which features some interesting hats. The knit sideline hats have been distributed to the players and are now for sale on...

This week in the NFL we were treated to some Thanksgiving drama and some good upsets.
Going on my eyeball test, here are my Conference Top 5 power rankings this week.
The Baltimore Ravens made the cut…but they still need to find a way to get Ray Rice the ball more.

Because of Thanksgiving and traveling I wasn’t able to get a pre game article up so I decided to do a running diary of the game between the Green Bay Packers and the New York Giants. That way, you, the reader, can get a ton of reading material that contains a bunch of rambling and possibly a nice little insight or two! Note to readers: The times listed are the actual times the...
