Super Bowl preview looms for NFC’s ‘Team to Beat’

            Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports You can almost smell that Turkey in the oven. The stuffing and mashed potatoes. Veggies and dinner rolls. Cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. Yes, we’ve reached the fourth week of November, which means two things: Thanksgiving and the start of the NFL’s stretch run towards the playoffs. And as Week 12 concludes...

Packers’ Linsley Perfect Example of Thompson’s Practices

There was much consternation at the beginning of the season.  The Packers spent time and resources developing a plan to keep this team healthier.  If you ask Mike McCarthy that’s a huge part of this team’s success, especially in the regular season.  He claims to have only coached two teams of above average health in his career.  The 2007 Packers that went 12-4 and made it...

Were any Green Bay Packers named as Week 12′s biggest heroes or goats?

Twelve weeks into the 2014 NFL season, the league is starting to take shape. It’s easier and easier to see what teams are contenders and which ones are just not ready for primetime. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while others hurt the squad. Who fell...

Green Bay Packers climbing up Power Rankings after huge Week 12 win

It’s Thanksgiving week, which means the NFL season is approaching the final stretch. With just over a quarter of the season remaining, every game takes on added significance, with postseason implications seemingly involved with every matchup. In part, that’s because so many teams are still technically “in the hunt.” But reality suggests that not every franchise that is still...

Patriots Made Right Choice In Trading Clay Matthews Pick To Packers

An alternate universe exists where Clay Matthews is racking up double-digit sack seasons at outside linebacker on the New England Patriots’ defense. Sounds pretty exciting, right? Well, consider this: Rob Gronkowski also is playing elsewhere in this universe, which suddenly doesn’t sound so fun anymore. The Patriots once held the No. 26 overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft ...

Why Packers' offense continues to evolve despite success

The Green Bay Packers beat the division rival Minnesota Vikings on Sunday 24-21, finalizing a season sweep. These Vikings are not the Purple People Eaters of the 1970s, with Alan Page and Jim Marshall blowing up backfields across the league. These Vikings are, however, a young and ascending team that looked much better than in the Week 5 42-10 blowout that saw Rodgers trading in...

Aaron Rodgers fakes out entire Vikings defense

This was a great fake by Aaron Rodgers at the goal line, and it was sold well by tight end Richard Rodgers too. But c’mon, entire Vikings defense. No one thought to get within even 10 yards of that guy running to the other side of the end zone? Rodgers had to wait nearly three seconds for the ball to come down. Seriously, I can not stop laughing. https://t.co/amva8foIj9 — Aaron...

Grades for each Packers positional unit in win over Vikings

Wins don’t always come easy, especially when playing a divisional opponent on the road. After back-to-back blowout wins, Green Bay escaped Minnesota with a close victory in a hard-fought game, 24-21. It wasn’t a clean game by any means. This team had to overcome more adversity and poor play in stretches. Minnesota found ways to limit the Packers’ prolific offense and attack...

Packers Aftermath: Top of the NFC North Again

Well look at that, the Packers are once again sitting atop the NFC North. Must be that final stretch toward the end of the season.
