San Fran ends Green Bay's season - again. So where do we go from here?

(Before we begin: Apologies for not writing more. Hopefully you’ve been following us on Twitter or listening to our podcasts over at the Packers Talk Radio Network.)

So, here we are – again.

Another season of Green Bay Packers football was brought to a disappointing end at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers, this time a [...]

Takeaways: Defense torched as Green Bay’s season ends

Waking up the day after your team’s season ends feels a lot like waking up the day after being dumped.

The finality. The embarrassment. The sense of failure. It just…it just stinks.

But that’s where we are today, a day after the Green Bay Packers were (quite literally) ran out of the playoffs, losing on the road [...]

Takeaways: Packers soundly defeat Vikings to advance to divisional round

There’s just nothing better than a playoff win, huh?

That’s exactly what the Green Bay Packers delivered Saturday night, soundly defeating the Minnesota Vikings 24-10 in a wild-card round contest at Lambeau Field. The Packers now head on the road for the divisional round, where they will face the San Francisco 49ers next Saturday night at [...]

Takeaways: Sloppy, uneven effort costs Packers first round bye

Well that was a rotten way to end the regular season, huh?

Playing for a first-round bye, the Green Bay Packers were just too sloppy and uneven to get the job done, falling 37-34 on the road to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. As a result of the loss, the Packers will be playing next weekend [...]

Takeaways: Packers bury Titans in impressive effort

If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting all season for one Sunday – just one – where the Green Bay Packers completely overwhelm an opponent from start to finish.

One Sunday where you never spend a second worrying about the result.

Fitting that the Packers gave us that one game two days before Christmas, huh?

Green Bay throttled [...]

Takeaways: Division champions yet again

At the height of their mid-2000s dominance, the New England Patriots coined a term for games like today’s.

They called them “t-shirt and hat games.” Nothing beats winning a “t-shirt and hat game.” The Green Bay Packers had a chance to do that today at Soldier Field.

Check and check.

The Packers are now back-to-back NFC North Champions [...]

Takeaways: Packers impose will in win over Lions

It’s late, so let’s just save the opening for another time, shall we? I assure you it would’ve been genius, though. Okay, it would’ve been decent, at least.

On a snowy night at Lambeau Field, the Green Bay Packers moved to within a win of another NFC North title with their 27-20 victory over the Detroit [...]

Takeaways: Packers gut one out over Vikings

What’s this? Another “Takeaways” post?

Two weeks in a row – I’m heating up!

Also warming back up – transitions are fun – are the Green Bay Packers. The Pack returned to the win column with a gritty, gutty 23-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at Lambeau Field. The win, coupled with the Chicago Bears’ [...]

Takeaways: Packers crushed by Giants

Okay, so I haven’t written in over a year. And, honestly, I have no idea if this is going to lead to me doing this more. But, for one night at least, I am back.

(Plus, we pay for this damn site, we might as well USE it, you know?)

Unfortunately, it comes under these circumstances – [...]

So...if it's okay...I'd like to offer some quick thoughts on Pack-Chargers

I swear I’ve done this before. Haven’t I?

Well, in the event this post comes off a bit creaky, I’ll apologize in advance.

So I know we haven’t updated this site in awhile. We hope to change that soon. As of now, though, we aren’t sure. Either way, that’s another post for another time.

For now, if y’all [...]
