We’re just one day away from the Green Bay Packers’ playoff opener against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field. So this afternoomn Vic Ketchman editor from Packers.com hosted Pack President and CEO Mark Murphy on an open conference call for Packer backers. As a stockholder, I had to listen in and hear what Murphy had to say.
Murphy seemed to like a lot of the questions, saying “that’s a good question,” in response to many of the queries.
Obviously, there were a couple questions about the playoff game tomorrow. Murphy said he expects Charles Woodson to play a big factor.
He was then asked if Fan Fest will ever return, and why it went away?
“it wasn’t becoming so much for Packer fans as it was for collectors, and he wanted to make it more for Packer fans than a chance for collectors to make money”
Next query was on whether or not this was still a cold weather team?
“I think it’s an advantage to be playing on the same practice field outside all week,” Murphy said.
There were questi...

For the second time in two weeks, the Green Bay Packers will face the Minnesota Vikings, only this time the loser’s season is finished.
Because the Packers weren’t able to beat the Vikings last week in Minneapolis, the Vikings will now travel to Lambeau Field to take on the Packers in the first round of the playoffs.
The name of the game for the Packers defense is the same as...
When Greg Jennings' sister took to Twitter during last weekend's Packers-Vikings game to mercilessly criticize Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Packers fans immediately began to wonder what the rant might do to the NFL MVP's relationship with his two-time Pro Bowl receiver.
Apparently, not that much.
Jennings was left to explain why his sister called Rodgers the most...
After generating 67 million in revenue during the team's fifth stock sale last year, the Green Bay Packers wont be having another anytime soon.Green Bay Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy told fans in a phone chat Friday that there in fact will be another stock sale, but it won't come for at least 10 to 15 years, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.The revenue...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson has no doubt he'll be healthy enough to play in Saturday night's playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Nelson, who suffered a knee injury in the regular-season finale, was able to take part in the team's entire Thursday practice.
"I feel good," Nelson said in the locker room.
It's also a near-certainty...
The Green Bay Packers beat the Minnesota Vikings 24-10 in Saturday’s NFC Wild Card playoff game and never really struggled. Though the Packers won the game easily, quarterback Aaron Rodgers seemed dissatisfied with the team’s offensive performance.
“Our defense played at a championship level — which you have to have in the postseason,” Rodgers told NBC Sports’ Michele...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Packers could have avoided this. They had control over the NFC's No. 2 seed, which would have given them a first-round bye to watch from home as four playoff teams get eliminated this weekend.
Instead, the Vikings beat Green Bay in the regular-season finale, earning a postseason spot for Minnesota and setting up a rematch between the NFC North rivals for...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When a team is built through the draft as well as the Green Bay Packers have been, it's inevitable that members of its front office are going to be in high demand.
According to a tweet from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Packers director of football operations John Dorsey is interviewing for the vacant general manager position with the New York Jets this weekend...
Wild Card Round: Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings
This Week’s Pick
Green Bay Packers
Adrian Peterson runs for over 100 but under 200. Ponder makes the mistakes he didn’t last week and the Vikings struggle outdoors. Tramon Williams redeems himself and the Packers go on to San Francisco.
So Packers vs. Vikings part II with a definite part III coming up. Again, if there is any play in particular you would like to see my analyze, please leave comments below. As for this week I’ve decided to take a look at one of the times where quarterback Christian Ponder was able to beat the Packers defense through the air. My belief is that the Packers at best can only slow...
The Minnesota Vikings will play against the Green Bay Packers this Saturday in the opening round of the NFC playoffs. NBC will carry this game which has a 8 pm EST kickoff from Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI.
These two teams met last Sunday in that game the Vikings upended the Packers to earn a playoff birth. The Packers lost out on a first round bye with that loss but will host...
The irony of this, is that it wasn’t like AP needed 80 yards and only got 71 yards. He needed 208 yards and got 199, so it isn’t like the Packers defense did anything to stop him, he just ran out of time.
We will see if the Packers can hold AP under 200 as boldly (not really) predicted by Clay Matthews.
The Packers were able to keep drives alive with a short passing game and Aaron Rodgers extending plays. In the minds of Vikings defenders, that was a major difference-maker.
As all the sports world knows, the Green Bay Packers will face the Minnesota Vikings for the second time in six days tomorrow evening on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. The Packers won the first game several weeks ago, and the Vikes took the game on Sunday. This game? Well, it will be cold. But as Packer fans we hope that, in the end, the ViQueens feel much colder much longer...
Charles Woodson isn't talking rocket science, it was simple to him and his defensive teammates, stop Adrian Peterson. In basketball, it's the box and 1, for baseball it's the intentional walk, and in football it's 8 men in the box.
Great players demand special attention, and Saturday night the Green Packers defense which had been torched in two regular season games...
