Packers Have Obstacles Of Their Own

The Packers ended last season with the third highest scoring offense, seventh ranked passing game, and sixth ranked overall offense.  This seems to be the jumping off point for numerous offseason publications that have the Packers as an almost certain participant in the 2010 postseason. I’m not so convinced, and here is why: First, that […]

Tuaolo Arrested On Domestic Assault Charges

Esera Tuaolo played defensive tackle for nine NFL seasons, five of which were spent with the Vikings.  He started 28 games for the Vikings and registered 5.5 sacks. The Hawaii-born Oregon State product was recently arrested for domestic assault in Ramsey County.  Few details (okay, pretty much all of them) are unknown, but Tuaolo was […]

The Pack Is One and Done

Against all odds, Aaron Rodgers led the Packers from a seemingly impossible-to-overcome deficit to tie the Cardinals at 45 to 45. In a fitting manner, Aaron Rodgers gets crunched, loses the ball, kicks it to keep it live, which then gets nabbed out of the air and run back for a defensive touchdown. The Packers […]

Overtime In The Desert

After 90 points were scored in a 45 to 45 game between the Packers and the Cardinals, Neil Rackers missed a short field goal to send the game into overtime. Neither team has been playing well on  defense, so one can imagine that the coin toss is very important in the outcome of this game. […]

Vikes Almost Stand Alone As NFC North Reps

It looks like the Vikings will be standing as the lone NFC North representatives in the playoffs from this point forward. At halftime, the Cardinals hold a 14 point lead over the Packers.  The first half was pretty much Arizona’s game, and barring a complete implosion, they should be booking a trip to Bourbon Street very soon. […]

Clarifying The Scenarios

It seems like some are confused about the playoff scenarios (I was). So, lets take a look at what could go down next week. IF Cowboys beat Eagles & Cardinals beat Packers THEN Saints play Cardinals and Vikings play Cowboys. IF Cowboys beat Eagles & Packers beat Cardinals THEN Saints play Packers and Vikings play Cowboys. IF Eagles […]

What Is What In The Standings

Week seventeen is heating up to be one of the most exciting of the year for the NFC.  All six playoff teams are set in the NFC, but the order in which those teams are seeded will depend greatly on the outcome of this coming week. Let’s take a look at some of the places […]

Breaking It Down

Here are a few notes about where the Vikes currently stand: NFC NORTH The Vikings have almost (Almost!) sealed up the NFC North, but the Packer continue to hang on.  With three weeks left, the Vikings need to manage one win or have the Packers lose once in order to clinch the division title.  Hopefully […]

When The Goin’ Gets Tough…

Those pesky Packers just won’t die, will they? The Packers just finished winning their fourth straight game.  They are now 8-4, only two games behind the Vikings in the NFC North, with the Vikings holding the advantage should they tie.  The Vikings remaining schedule consists of hosting Cincinnati (9-3), going to Carolina (5-7), going to […]

How We Stand, Clinch Scenarios

Here is how the standings shake out after this week’s action: THE NORTH The Vikings knocked Chicago out of the playoff picture on Sunday, as they now lay 6 games behind them with only 5 weeks left to play.  The Lions have been out for a while. The biggest enemy (as always) is the Packers, […]
