Can the Packers win Super Bowl XLVII?
The 2012 season has been a roller-coaster for the Green Bay Packers.
From the early-season “Fail mary” in Seattle to the epic collapse in Indianapolis, the Packers have battled back to put themselves in contention for a second Super Bowl in three years. But is this team really Super Bowl-caliber?
The last time the Packers won the Super Bowl, they were decimated by injuries but Aaron Rodgers carried the team on his back all the way to Super Bowl XLV in Dallas. It was a season to remember, and there are certainly some similarities between the 2010 Packers and this 2012 team.
In the Packers’ first preseason game, starting middle linebacker Desmond Bishop was lost for the season. After Clay Matthews, Bishop may be the Packers’ best defensive player. Second-year player D.J. Smith replaced Bishop in the starting lineup, but he suffered a season-ending injury in week six at Houston.
In total, the 2012 Packers have eight players on injured reserve, incl...

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...
WHO SHOULD WIN IT?
Aaron Rodgers has won NFL MVP during his career. He weighed in with his selection for this season's MVP, and it might surprise you.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It didn't take long for Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings to find out that his sister, Valyncia Jennings, had taken several shots at quarterback Aaron Rodgers via Twitter during Green Bay's regular-season finale.
As soon as the game ended Sunday, the team's public relations staff informed Jennings about his sister's comments, which included calling...
Aaron Rodger is good at taking the high road sometimes, so it was no surprise when Rodgers was able to brush off some disrespectful tweets from Greg Jennings sister Valyncia last Sunday, in which she deemed Rodgers among other things, the most overrated quarterback in football.
Greg Jennings will be a free agent this off-season, and probably won’t return to Green Bay, but according...
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers showed how dangerous they can be when they're at full strength Saturday night, overwhelming the Minnesota Vikings 24-10 in an NFC wild-card game that was never really close.
John Kuhn scored two touchdowns, DuJuan Harris added another and Rodgers connected with an NFL playoff-record 10 receivers as he threw for 274 yards. Defensively,...
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.
When the Minnesota Vikings left Lambeau Field at 6-6 after losing to the Packers on Dec. 2, no one imagined they'd be back so soon.
After all, getting back to Green Bay for a playoff game would require four straight wins including one against the Packers in Minnesota in the final week of the regular season. But sometime in the past month, the Vikings started looking less like...
The Green Bay Packers improved to 9-4 after beating the Detroit Lions 27-20 back in Week 14. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for 173 yards and rushed for a touchdown in the 3rd Quarter that gave Green Bay their first lead of the game. The Lions then kicked a Field Goal to take back the lead heading into the 4th Quarter. But the Packers outscored their NFC North rivals 10...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers first-year running back DuJuan Harris claims he doesn't care about statistics. If he did care, Harris would like the way the box score looked for him after Green Bay's 24-10 playoff win Saturday night over the Minnesota Vikings.
Harris finished with 100 total yards, running for 47 yards and catching five passes for 53 yards. That was only seven...
It it a phrase that I’m sure you’ve heard many times before, but the National Football League is a quarterback league, which is why the Green Bay Packers are advancing in the NFC Playoffs and the Minnesota Vikinga are on their way home.
In the rubber match between two old school NFC North rivals, Rodgers and the Packers proved once and for all to be too much for the Vikings,...
Although the playoffs have yet to begin and the Packers remain in contention for another Super Bowl ring, I assume general manager Ted Thompson has begun planning his offseason moves.
In the modern NFL, players are constantly moved in the offseason due to the structure of the salary cap. There is much turnover. The Packers will be faced with multiple dilemmas with their own players...
The Vikings had no choice but to rely on their backup Joe Webb, despite the fact he hasn’t played a down of football all season. The gamble turned out to be a colossal fail only saved by the late efforts of their defense. The prowess of the continuously overlooked Packers reigned supreme all night long.
Adrian Peterson’s game was put on shutdown mode...
8 a.m. ET: Two down and one to go, but this one’s going to be big.
The Vikings and Packers split their season series with each side taking their respective home game. Minnesota fought their way into the playoffs behind the churning legs of Adrian Peterson last week. Now, the two are set for a rematch in cold and windy Green Bay.
Peterson may not have broken Eric Dickerson’s...
