Sorry I sort of missed a couple games there. And the offseason. I missed that (though I wouldn't say I really "missed it" if you know what I'm saying). Life's been a little hectic lately. Lady MF is 8 months preggers and apparently that means that I have to give her foot massages for roughly 19 hours a week. I haven't been able to type, I've been on the PUP list. Of course I don't have to create a human being and then try to shove said human being out of the fly on my jeans so I guess that's a fair trade off.
I've got some concerns about the Packers. I'll say that. Between our safeties and our O-linemen giving up safeties it's a little scary. I understand that Antwan Odom deserves some credit but uh, he's been in the league 6 years. No one I've spoken to has ever even heard of him. Heck, my buddy who is an actual Bengals fan (they exist!) didn't even know who he was. So yeah, you only get so much credit Antwan. Frankly I think he had a Quantum Leap moment and Scott Bakula jumped into his body and took over and got 5 sacks so that somewhere in an Alabama swamp Antwan's long lost sister would hear about it, see him on Sportscenter and reunite the family.
On a side note has anyone seen Quantum Leap recently? That show does NOT hold up. Whew. Loved it as a kid, not so much now. In a related note, I apparently was an idiot as a child.
I think they'll bounce back. I think we'll be 5-2. I'd give a full season prediction but I got busy at work and that's all the further that I researched. Blame my boss and his ridiculous time requirements. He's already getting me to work 70% of the time I'm there, I don't know what more he could expect. Outrageous.
So hang in there Packers fans. We'll be ok. This team is gonna bust out of the offensive funk they've been in. This team is going to find someone other than Chuck Woodson to make a tackle every once in a while. Our competition includes a Bears team that should finish around 6-10 and a Vikings squad that hired a guy (Favre) for one reason, to win in the playoffs. Mind you, this guy has kinda blown in playoff games for nigh on a decade at this point. I love him, but that's the truth. Let's not sweat it too much.
He didn't win it all when Ahman Green put up nearly 1,900 yards on the ground, 20 TDs and a total of more than 2,200 yards all told back in 2003, why is he going to do it at 40 years old with Adrian Peterson? AP may rush for 2,000 yards this year, are you telling me the extra 120 yards spread out over 16 games is that big of a difference? There's a thinker for ya.

This one was easy. With no heroes on the field to speak of, I want to recognize the fan who did the right thing and give a gesture to America for the injustice that Ochocinco did. Besides getting beer down his back, perhaps this message came in loud and clear. Good play!

What a nasty loss. Defense looked offensive, the offense looked defensive, and the Vikings won. What a day. At least the Cowboys lost in their first regular season game in their new palace, that should account for something, right. Oh yeah, and the Pats lost too. See, there is a silver lining. On to the best headlines of week 2.

Another new segment for this years Cheese and Packers is highlight what I feel is the "Good Play of the Week". This week I chose Johnny Jolly's one-handed interception from the Bears crappy quarterback Jay Cutler. Nice work Johnny, and nice work Jay!

If you're intensely bored and wondering just what the heck you're doing with your life, how you got here and why you're still wearing anything that could be mistaken for being "acid-washed" I have good news for you. You don't have to ask yourself those painful questions, instead just distract yourself, bust out the zubaz and get cozy with live Packer game updates from us on Twitter. You can follow @mfcp14. If that last sentence makes no sense to you don't worry, I'm sure your mother, wherever she is, still loves you. So you have that at least.
