Falling to a Falcon

Not a bad loss as far as loses go. Love the quarterback, where's the running back? Got to clean up the mess and get ready for next week. Here's a snap we took of Aaron Rodgers diving for a first down...he came up short.

Beauty and the Modern Girl

The Packers won a game today in a fashion I've never seen before. Granted I'm a newbie in the Packer Fandom world, I've only been following the team since 1991. I've seen a lot of wins. Blowouts, nail biters, defensive gems, steals and the like, but I've never seen a game quite like this. I found it to be beautiful, but it appears many folks have decided it was an ugly game and win.

Frankly I've been hoping for a day like this. A day when I feel safe with the defense on the field. A day when the guys who backpedal are the most reliable option. I realize there was some ugliness. Receivers on both teams dropped passes. Quarterbacks missed reads and throws. I get that. But part of that - the happy feet, the anxiousness, is tied to the defense both teams were playing. I expected the Jets to play well on that side of the ball, it's what they do, but I didn't expect to see the Packers defense dominate in such a way. I don't mean over the Jets offense, which is one dimensional, but over the Jets defense. If you had to rank the units for each team and how well they played it would have to look like this:

1. Packers Defense
2. Packers Special Teams
3. Jets Defense
4. Packers Offense
5. Jets Special Teams
6. Jets Offense

So tell me, when was the last time you can recall that the Packers D and special teams were the entire reason for a win? Go ahead, I'll wait. Do your research. Nothing? I thought so.

If you don't follow these teams I understand why someone would mistakenly think this was an ugly game. Let's face it, people don't equate beauty with precision. They don't equate beauty with solid defense. They don't equate beauty with grinders on offense or opportunistic tweaks on defense. In the modern world everyone equates beauty with offense. If you win 49-35 it was a beautiful game. That's it. Offense is beauty.

This is shortsighted and in many cases just flat out wrong. Yeah, Santonio Holmes and James Jones dropping passes that could have been big gainers is ugly, but Clay Matthews III picking up a sack late in the game to force 4th down? Beautiful. It's not about perfection. Receivers drop passes every week, it's just part of the game. If you read anyone saying this game was ugly just remember this means it was low scoring and move on. That's all.

Sitting at 5-3, and 2-0 in a 3 game stretch that looked daunting when we started feels pretty good doesn't it? I mean, it's downright beautiful, when you think about it.

BIG win against the Vikings last night. Favre looked horrible, Rodgers looked great, and guess who's tied for first place in the North....

Monday Morning Headlines

Well, that makes two weeks in a row America's Pack lost close games in overtime. I'm starting to see a pattern, and I don't love it. BUT on the bright side, Dallas lost. But at what cost....Also, the Bears lost, so that's good. Time to regroup and get a big W next weekend.

Stuff Around the Internet

Lots going on these days in the football world, but how about that Brett Favre? Not only is he failing as a quarterback this year, his husband rating is at an all time low! And to think people used to think he was better than Majkowski.

UGLY win against the Lions, but sure beats losing to the Giants in prime time! Just ask the Bears....

Nostradamus Predicts

I just got a fax from my pal Nostradamus. He picks The Pack over the Lions. The Vikings WON'T win this week, and the Bears will lose to the Giants of New York.
Oh, and he's NEVER wrong.

who pooped the bed?

Thankfully that question cannot be answered by any member of the Green Bay Packers this week. It feels good. Enjoy it Mike McCarthy, Ted Thompson and gang. So who did poop the bed this week? Hmm. The Bears won, so it can't be them (gimme a week). The Lions lost to Mike Vick, but he has no soul and I don't blame them for not wanting to touch him. It's tough enough in Detroit without the undead meandering about, quarterbacking football teams and whatnot. So I'm giving them a pass.

That leaves Minnesota. Make no mistake, they earned it. The Dolphins fumbled twice with the game on the line. The Vikings had every opportunity to pull out a win they did not deserve, and they still couldn't do it. So this week they get the award. Here's some video from a post-game coaches meeting in which the brain trust over in Minny tried to figure out whose fault this loss was, check it out.

Up Next: Packers vs. Bills

This week we got an Eazy game, the Bills are coming to town. I'm guessing Rodgers will throw 3,000 touchdowns this Sunday.

BTW, did anyone else notice that Matthews actually had 3 sacks versus the Eagles. Amazing.

Here's a fantastic rendition of the key play of the game from our friends at the Journal.

Good Play of the Week

The Good Play of the Week goes to Clay Matthews III for his amazing game! 7 tackles, two sacks, and one forced fumble is not bad for a guy who didn't have much preseason action. Take that Favre.

Monday Morning Headlines

Great win yesterday for the Pack, although a bit sloppy it's always a pleasure starting off the season on the road with a win. Matthews looked amazing as usual, and Rodgers needed about 17 more touchdowns to live up to my high expectations of yesterdays game. Buffalo will give him a chance to pad those stats.

The Bears should have lost, bullshit call I might add. And it's always nice watching the Cowboys lose.

Warming UP!

Nick Barnett is cooler than I thought

I've always liked Nick. I've even defended his swordplay antics to friends, even though I know it's pretty ridiculous. Now don't get me wrong, actual swordplay is obviously very cool. Whether it's an old school broadsword or an even older schooled samurai they're all pretty amazing in my eyes. I mean, they're swords. There's something terrifying about them because there is no mystery as to what they're intended for, they're pointy and they are really, really good at separating parts of you from other parts of you. So yeah, anyway, I like swords.*

What I was trying to get to is that while real swords are cool, pretending you have a sword is another thing entirely. It's tough to defend these sorts of actions. Although, to be honest, when compared to things like Jared Allen's cowrope deal it's impossibly cool. Pretending to have a sword out is kinda childish... but fun. Pretending to rope cattle is um, what exactly? Pretending to work? With large animals? I don't get it. I'm guessing it's a metaphor for Jared's obvious infatuation with 80s hair metal band Poison. I think we all agree on that don't we?

I signed up on the Twitter last year because I needed something inconspicuous to read while pooping at work. Twitter on a blackberry is pretty much perfect for that scenario. In case you were wondering. I can't be the guy who brings in the paper, or prints out an article on company paper, that's just bad driving. My goals were pretty limited as far as Twitter goes is what I'm trying to say, but I gotta' say I'm digging it. Nick Barnett is one reason why.

His tweets aren't amazing or anything, but they're consistent, they're funny and they give us a small insight into a player's mind. I dig it. For some reason he sends tweets about waking up every morning, he apologized for his late hit out of bounds in the colts game a week ago and he seems to have a great attitude.

Some of the other players have some entertaining stuff too. I'm following most of the guys on the team. Rodgers is interesting when he actually posts something. Clay Matthews is good too. I'm not gonna lie, I have no idea what's going on with Jermichael Finley's tweets. It's like walking into the middle of a conversation at a party. It's loud, it's confusing, and I just sit there stupidly taking it all in.

Nick is cool. Let's support him. Check out his website. There's a t-shirt in it for you if you've got $10 and would like to look 1% cooler than you normally do. It's also good superbowl hype and who doesn't enjoy that sort of thing? So check it out.

* I realize Harry Potter fans are probably all confused with the whole sword diatribe. They can suck it. I grew up watching lightsabers, conan the barbarian broadswords and martial arts movies (even the American Ninja series, and it obviously sucked). You can't possibly expect me to be impressed by a couple of dorks pointing twigs at each other. Get a real weapon. Crazy kids. And get off my lawn.

Predictions from NFL.com


Here ya go folks, our friends NFL.com have made up their mind on this years Pack.


Did I mention Rodgers is really good?

Here's an article with a bold statement: RODGERS FOR MVP. I love it, he hasn't even played a regular snap yet!


Wonders of the World Wide Web

Here is an article from that idiot at the Star Tribune, Judd Zulgad. He's usually a real homer, you can read all of it here:










FYI Judd; Favre was more then a LITTLE rusty.

Oofta!

Worth it? You betcha!

I feel like I've seen this one before. Favre proves the world wrong that he's not done, has a great season, get's the NFC Championship game....and does a bone-head play. But wait, here's the twist! This time he's the hero. Favre has now played a huge part in keeping the Lombardi Trophy out of the Vikings hands, and for that...he is my personal hero. Maybe next year Vikings? Ahhh who nows, but either way, Thanks 4 The Memories!
