Colin Kaepernick sets NFL records in win over the Packers

Colin Kaepernick vs. Packers

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh went from potential idiot to genius in a matter of a few hours after his hand-picked quarterback shredded the NFL record books in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Second-year guy Colin Kaepernick who resembles a human-like gazelle on the football field ran for a NFL-playoff record 183 rushing yards on 16 carries against the Green Bay Packers. As a whole, the 49ers racked up an astounding 581 of offense in the 45-31 win.

For a team who dedicated the entire off-season to improving their defense, it has to be a tough loss for the Packers.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers roll the terrible Tennessee Titans

Aaron Rodgers vs. Titans

Earlier in the season, it would have been appropriate to point out how the Green Bay Packers play down to lesser competition in close wins over the New Orleans Saints and Jacksonville Jaguars at home.

Can’t say that now though as the Packers (11-4) steam-rolled the Titans to the tune of 55-7.

Aaron Rodgers was responsible for four of the touchdowns, throwing three and rushing for another.

Green Bay Packers will experience a franchise first against the St. Louis Rams

For the first time in franchise history, the Green Bay Packers will play their third consecutive game in a dome. After road games with the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans, the St. Louis Rams are the next team to welcome Green Bay into their house.

The Rams (3-3) are an up-and-coming team with a stingy defense. All three of their wins have come at home, but they haven’t faced the Packers (3-3) Aaron Rodgers who’s the all-time leader with a 115.9 passer rating in domes (minimum 200 passes).

Green Bay Packers Are 2011 Super Bowl Champions


The Lombardi Trophy is returning to Green Bay as the Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 in Super Bowl XLV. It’s the Packers fourth Super Bowl victory and 13th overall championship.

Welcome Aaron Rodgers to the class of NFL’s elite quarterbacks because his 304 yards and three touchdowns couldn’t have been on a bigger stage or against a better defense. For his historic performance, Rodgers was named Super Bowl MVP.

As expected, the battle between the league’s two most historic and storied franchises was a thriller to the end. Fitting that the Packers came out on top after persevering through some costly injuries and mental miscues, much like they  did during the regular season.

Packers Stun Bears En Route to Super Bowl


Similar to the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears ugly match-up in week 17, someone had to win the NFC Championship. After three quarters of stifling defense and a riveting fourth quarter, the Packers edged out the Bears 21-14 to become the second-ever #6 seed to make the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl XLV will mark the Packers fifth overall appearance in the biggest game of them all. In that game, they will be vying for their fourth Lombardi Trophy.

It may be hard to fathom, but it wasn’t Aaron Rodgers or Clay Matthews who stole the headlines this Sunday. It was a couple of rookies in CB Sam Shields, P Tim Masthay and second-year DT B.J. Raji who came through in the clutch to send their team to Dallas.

Green Bay Packers Face NFL’s Hottest Team in New England


A questionable Aaron Rodgers and a 7-3 upset by the Detroit Lions has the Green Bay Packers limping into one of the biggest games of the season. At a full game back of the NFC-North leading Chicago Bears, the Packers will desperately look for a win on Sunday night in Foxborough against the NFL’s hottest team.

While the New England Patriots (11-2) will be more than just another bump in the road, the Packers (8-5) need to find a way to overcome this offensive funk they have found their selves in. Particularly on third down where the Packers went 2-for-12 in the loss to the Lions. If they cannot do this, they may be a ten-win team looking from the outside when it comes time for the playoffs.

Miami at Green Bay: Inexperienced Packers to Watch

Brace yourselves Packers fans, the team’s line-up on Sunday will be reminiscent of a pre-season game during the third and fourth quarters. That means the roster will be full of guys who are not regular starters or possibly have never started in an NFL game at all.

The Packers were dealt with more bad news on Wednesday when they learned that rising-star Jermichael Finley would be out 8-10 weeks, essentially the rest of the season. This adds to the already long list of key players out for the season (RB Ryan Grant, S Morgan Burnett and LB Nick Barnett). Don’t forget the players who are banged up and questionable for the game with the Dolphins this weekend (QB Aaron Rodgers, LB Clay Matthews, TE Donald Lee, etc…).

Here’s a chance to check out some of the inexperienced Packers who will need to step up for the team to stay in contention for the NFC North title.
