Green Bay Packers
San Francisco 49ers
Since the loss to Arizona at the end of the 2009 season (which was a facemask on Michael Adams) there have been 3 games that I’ve felt like the whole country expected the Packers to lose with little to no chance of victory. The games vs. the Jets and Patriots during the Super Bowl season, and the game against the Texans last year. The Packers shut out the Jets 9-0 behind a dominant defensive performance from Clay Matthews and Matty Flynn almost beat the Patriots on the road. Last season Aaron Rodgers tied the aforementioned Flynn’s franchise record with 6 TD passes while routing the Texans in Houston. The mantra that I love and is one of the reasons that I think Mike McCarthy is an elite leader of men is “we are nobody’s underdog.” McCarthy has convinced his team that they are not only capable of winning, but are going to win every game. He’s been right 27 times in the past two seasons.
I feel like that this weekend. I looked over at ESPN’s expert picks and there isn’t a sing...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Green Bay Packers have always been a team where players give 110%. Signing Seneca Wallace to become Aaron Rodgers back up was a big mistake. The Packers will soon learn that Wallace is one selfish S.O.B. He could care less about his teammates or helping anyone on the football team to become more productive. The thing that Wallace does best is stand on the sidelines holding a...
Week 1: Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers
This Week’s Pick
Green Bay Packers
Probably the toughest game to pick on the schedule and it’s only the first one. Everyone is going crazy over the 49ers, much like how everyone treated the Packers after 2010. Mike McCarthy has put much focus on...
“In Ted We Trust.”
This phrase has become part of every Packers fan’s lingo.
Posters have been made in it’s honor:
Even T shirts have been made promoting this belief:
It is a great phrase, perfectly capturing what every Packers fan should do at all times-trust the person in charge of football operations to make the best decisions regarding football operations...
The Green Bay Packers learned a valuable lesson last January, don't take the read option lightly. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick put on a show at the Packers expense racking up a record 181 rushing yards for a quarterback in NFL playoff history. For head coach Mike McCarthy and defensive coordinator Dom Capers, it was the lowlight since they have been together...
According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers cornerback Casey Hayward has such a bad hamstring injury that he’s expected to be held out for the next month.
A source close to Hayward said the second-year player doesn’t expect to play in the first month of the season.
Hayward was declared out of the San Francisco early in the week.
“I don’t really have a time line...
Bob McGinn and Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel report that Packers CB Casey Hayward is expected to miss at least a month of action.
Having initially been diagnosed with a minor hamstring injury during training camp, Hayward suffered a setback in his recovery during the team’s third preseason game and is now expected to be out for a noticeable period of time.
Aaron Rodgers isn't out for revenge in Green Bay's season opener. Sure, the 49ers bounced the Packers from the NFC playoffs with a 45-31 win in January, but the former MVP quarterback — who grew up a Niners fan in Northern California — says he and his teammates are simply focused on the task at hand.
Packers periscope – Eyeing the Enemy
Welcome to the 2013 NFL season.
The Green Bay Packers open their schedule the same way they closed out last season—with a trip to San Francisco to face the 49ers. While it is only Week 1, Packers fans should get a pretty good handle on what the 2013 version of their team looks like as they face off against the defending NFC champions and...
Hot News for QB Aaron Rodgers
MVP: QB Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay)
Rodgers was my highest ranked quarterback in my top-200 and in my fantasy projections and the top quarterback usually wins this award as long as his team makes the playoffs. In his last 45 games, including the playoffs, Rodgers has thrown for 114 touchdowns, 20 interceptions, and 12738 yards. Over 16 games, that’s 41 touchdowns, 7 interceptions...

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TODD McMAHON Associated Press Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers and his fellow coaches went back to school after the team's ugly loss to San Francisco in the playoffs last season.
Coach Mike McCarthy sent his coaches on a day trip early in the offseason to College Station, Texas, to talk football with the staff from Texas...
Thoughts off the top of Bacardi’s Dome:
The Packers are in serious trouble for this game. As witnessed first hand last January, the Packers will struggle to defend San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The Packers did nothing to upgrade their middle linebackers this offseason, and it’ll show against run option QBs like Kaep. Additionally, Green Bay’s best cornerback...
