Week 4: Green Bay Packers vs. New Orleans Saints
This Week’s Pick
Green Bay Packers
Hell hath no fury like a scorned Aaron Rodgers. The Saints currently have the worst defense in the league but don’t underestimate Drew Brees. A fired up home crowd will also do the Packers favors
“Jersey” Al Bracco
Green Bay Packers
I can feel the fury coming. It will engulf New Orleans Saints on Sunday and send the Saints marching out as big losers. If emotion counts for anything in football, and I believe it counts for a lot, the Saints are in big trouble…
Green Bay Packers
The Packers offense has to get going against the Saints, right? Combine that with all the anger and rage built up from Monday night and this should be a blowout win for the Packers, right? Unfortunately, the Saints still have Drew Brees, so this one won’t be easy. I see the Packers winning, though. God,...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
One day after venting on his radio show about the refereeing debacle that cost the Green Bay Packers a game in Seattle, Aaron Rodgers saved one last barb for the NFL.
Asked Wednesday about how the Packers were handling the aftermath of a Monday night loss that touched off a national firestorm about the league's use of replacement officials, Rodgers dismissed an NFL-issued statement...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By CHRIS JENKINS AP Sports Writer For all the Green Bay Packers' complaints about a mistake by replacement officials that cost them a game Monday night, they probably wouldn't have been in position to lose on a last-second play if their offensive line had done a better job protecting Aaron Rodgers in the first half.
Going into Sunday's...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When the referees walked into the Packers' locker room just moments after Monday night's now-infamous touchdown ruling in Seattle, linebacker A.J. Hawk thought it was going to be good news."I thought they were going to tell us we won the game, honestly," Hawk said Wednesday. "I think a lot of people thought that. But they were saying we had...
I know it's early in the season but it's always fun to discuss and debate who the best players are in the NFL. If you ask me I still say Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback, Ray Rice is the ultimate running back and Andre Johnson is the most complete wide receiver in the game. But not right now! While these players are clearly still at the top of their game and among...
Will Aaron Rodgers finally get it going against the Saints?
As tough as it is, we need to move on and get back to legitimate football.
After the Green Bay Packers “loss” to fall to 1-2 against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night, the Packers somehow must regroup and play the New Orleans Saints Sunday at Lambeau Field. The Saints enter the game a somewhat surprising 0-3 on...
Brees has played three of the NFL's worst defenses so far - Redskins, Panthers, and Chiefs - with two of those matchups at home. Nonetheless, Brees has "just" 904 passing yards, 7 TDs vs. 5 INTs, and a 6.7 YPA. Not awful stats, certainly, but they're a far cry from the Brees we saw in 2011.
I spent a fair amount of time this week trying to figure out which...
The New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers have been two of the NFC’s best for the past 3 years and have had some of the most explosive offenses in history, largely due to the play of their all-pro QBs, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. This year, the pass-happy offenses that lit up the league [...]

New Orleans Saints (0-3) at Green Bay Packers (1-2)
The Saints and Packers are a combined 1-5 three weeks in the season. Raise your hand if you saw that coming. I strangely see no hands. This is a huge, must win game for both teams, and given that we should expect huge performances from both quarterbacks. You know it’s really not sitting well with both of these quarterbacks that...
Our Fantasy Football Preview of 5 Key Match-ups for Sunday, Brought to you by The League
1. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers versus the New Orleans Saints defense.
If you have Aaron Rodgers on your fantasy football team, this is certainly the week to start him. He struggled a bit on Monday night against a tough Seahawks defense. But this Sunday when he faces off against...
The last quarterback the NFL's lowest-ranked defense should want to face next?
But if the New Orleans Saints are going to rise from the league basement, finding a way to stymie the NFL's reigning Most Valuable Player is a must in Sunday's game at Green Bay (4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, FOX).
Among the biggest reasons for the Saints' 0-3 start is a defense...
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was mild-mannered during his postgame press conference Monday after the Packers 14-12 controversial loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
However, on Tuesday Rodgers let it all out on his weekly radio show with Jason Wilde on ESPN Milwaukee.
"I think first of all, I've got to do something that the NFL is not going to do and apologize...
This Gatorade is a little sour Juan…
I pushed hard all Summer for fantasy players to pass on QBs early, but to think that the top guys would struggle mightily was beyond even my wildest predictions. Will they continue to struggle? Will those that have overachieved early on, be able to continue their success?
Will Aaron Rodgers finish as a top 5 QB? (currently 20th in standard...
Time for me to put a smile on that face Juan…
Marques Colston was one of my favorite undervalued WRs coming into the season. Drew Brees was going to throw 5,000 yards again, right? Colston has easily the 2nd best target after Jimmy Graham coming into the season, but that has not come to fruition. A foot injury has caused a lack of production and according to reports, he could...
After three weeks the tables have turned in the NFC North and the two teams at the bottom from last season are sitting a top the standings with a tenuous one game lead. Let's take a look at five things to watch this week in the black and blue division.Can the Packers recover from the beat down in Puget Sound?Everyone in America has seen the play that ended the game in Seattle...
Green Bay’s high-powered offense has struggled early in the season
The Green Bay Packers are 2-1 1-2. That puts the defending NFC North champions one game behind the division leading Vikings and Bears and tied with the Lions. Here’s my analysis of the offense after three games:
QUARTERBACK: Aaron Rodgers‘ passer rating is down nearly 35 points from last season, and while numbers...
