Spew Off Speak Out...

      Packers Upset Favored Lions 45-41


With thanks to backup QB Matt Flynn's 6 TD 480 yards (both are Packer franchise records) passing performance, the Green Bay Packers were able to pull the upset on the favored Detroit Lions with a late 4th quarter comeback in a thrilling 45-41 win at Lambeau Field.

The Packers finish the season with a 15-1 record, as the 1st seed in the NFC Playoffs get to take this week's playoff action off, and then wait to host their upcoming playoff opponent which will be one of the following three teams, the 4th seed New York Giants, 5th seed Atlanta Falcons, or that "dirtbag outfit" (just quoting Wayne Larrivee and Larry McCarren from the Packers Radio broadcast) the 6th seed Detroit Lions on Sunday January 15th, at 3:30pm CST.

Hat-tip to Packers WR Jordy Nelson for his 9 catch 162 yard 3 TD performance, and a special shout-out to the old-man of the Packers WR's - Donald Driver - for taking a catch over the middle and turning up the field through the "gutless Detroit defense" (just quoting Wayne and Larry again) for a 35 yard TD reception.

Go Pack Go!!!

Loved your Wayne and Larry references, BeerKid. The Lions *ARE* a bunch of dirtballs. Most-penalized team in the NFL. GOOD. Players are both a reflection and a representation of their head coach, and Schwartz is a whiny, emotional bitch. Undisciplined, dirty team. I hope they never figure out class. What WE epitomize!! :-)

Resting our starters might not be as necessary since we have a 1st round bye anyway. I don't know what Mike McCarthy is planning to do, but we may as well try to win and keep up our 20 year streak of not losing a home game to the kitties.

And Ruppert is correct that they've only won 11+ games three times in franchise history. This is our 15th season with over 10 wins. :)

Speaking Of Cricket...
Here's something that every Packers fan and most NFL fans can understand perfectly... and it's happening currently with the Indian Cricket team. Time for India's selectors to bite the bullet like Packers did on Favre
    Just how do you follow in the footsteps of a legend? You can't, or you don't. The only way is to chart your own course, as Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have proved over the last four National Football League seasons.

    The time has come for Indian cricket to take some huge decisions, to say goodbye to a golden age and to usher in a new one whose early days are likely to be difficult.

    It is not a call that can be delayed...
Bar-tip goes to Manas from The Joynt who happened to mention the other night what was going on with the Indian Cricket team... and speaking of The Joynt down on Water St. in Eau Claire. I'm sure to be there for the Playoff game against the Giants Sunday afternoon, where the the beer is cheap, and it will only get cheaper for the 2nd half as Happy Hour starts at 5pm. Party hard but be responsible. Go Pack Go!!!

Presagin' Packer Prognosticators...

Q:  Will the NY Giants come into Lambeau and beat the Packers in todays playoff match-up?

A:  My Sources Say No.

Magic Gold G-Ball

A lot of prognosticators are pointing out that New York gave Green Bay a good game the last time these 2 teams met (in New Jersey) which resulted in a late comeback win for Aaron Rodgers and the Packer offense. I just don't see how that game has relevance for today's game at Lambeau Field. The Packers are at home, they will play better, and eventual out-score (that's all that matters) the Giants and wait for next week's playoff game.

On the Frozen Tundra, New York will find out what the true meaning of "Discount Double-check" is. Packers beat the Giants 34-24 in game that will not be as close as the final score might suggest. Go Pack Go Start The Super Bowl Roll!!!

The lack of defense concerned us all year but we hoped against hope that there would be a post-season spark. On the positive side - 15 wins still made a great season.

Mike Holmgren had a class for the players to help them transition to life after football.... I wonder if there are any of the notes left to share with us. Winter just got a little longer.

Rodgers was in no way at fault. He tried his best, but the WRs were rusty from sitting two weeks when they should have been out there against the kitties in Week 17. Poor guy looked like Tom Brady last season trying in vain to throw and all of his receivers were covered by the Jets. We also probably underestimated the Giants and didn't try hard enough. They were not only motivated, but as an outdoor cold weather team they had no problems playing here.

One other thing I hadn't seen mentioned in the comments so far. Did anyone else notice the disturbingly high amount of blue in the stands? It looked like at least 30% of the crowd were Giants fans. In fact, there were more there than in 07.

....still sick over what I saw last night....stunned...and now I read reports today that Driver may not be back next year....can this get any worse?? Driver's played his entire career here, and plays his heart out each and every time he's on the field...I hope the front office doesn't give him the boot just because his numbers are down now that there are new receivers to share the workload...that isn't a reflection on his abilities and what he does for this team.

Now to prepare for the lonnnng summer....sigh...

Lady K
_________________________________________

WOW, what an underwhelming performance........starting with the positive I have to say Driver is awesome, the slant catch for a needed 1st down and the late touchdown when the game was really getting ugly was great but what I really appreciated about both of those plays was the way he passed on the celebrations.......

I have always thought it was pure ignorance (not to mention self serving and completely out of touch with reality) when players celebrate when their team is getting their asses handed to them. the offensive line did a decent job of keeping Rodgers upright (the run blocking needs alot of off season work though) there was a hint of what our running game could be next season and the defense did knock manning on his ass a few times where I was surprised to see him get back up. that being said.......

I've given up on defending finley for his less than mediocre play, the dude needs to just shut his mouth and make use of the talent that we all know he has (but apparently refuses to use on game day) Rodgers had probably the worst game of his albeit short career (it was cool to see him running for first downs instead of sliding and I'm not worried at all about him next season as I'm sure he is pissed and will take it out on the secondaries of everybody next year........

bend don't break is a bullshit excuse for trying for the glory of the individual getting a turnover instead of solid coverage and tackling so I don't want to hear that crap anymore about the turnover ratio while giving up miles of yardage (and it sure looked to me like we lost the turnover battle yesterday) all in all just a sad day wasting the #1 seed and home field for the nfc championship and with seeing how weak the AFC is this year for sure back to back superbowl wins........

now I get to hear it from these dumbass niner fans for at least another week.......... Let's hear it for the superbowl 47 champion Green Bay Packers........GO PACK GO!!!!!!!!!

_________________________________________

As Vince Lombardi use to say "nobody wins every game". During the regular season every team has a bad game. Sunday against the Giants was a wrong time for our beloved Packers to have a bad game. We enjoyed more highs than lows this season but our season has come it a quick end, one and done.

Changes are surely coming to the team that played Sunday. Donald Driver was ready to play and had a good game, I'm glad he scored a touchdown in what was probably his last game in a Packer uniform, he's a pro's pro and has been a class act for the young guys to follow.

Finley on the other hand I just don't know, so much talent but too many mistakes, dropped balls changes to his route. This weekend showed how big of an impact a tightend can have in the game. Finley's play didn't match the play of Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez or Vernon Davis. Finley just seems to be too immature, too much look at me and not enough watch how we win. There's a big decision for Thompson coming on Finley. I say put the Franchise Tag on him and see what happens next year but if a long term contract is worked out structure it so if Finley doesn't grow out of his present behaviors the tie can be cut. Too bad Quarless hurt his nee so bad at the end of the season.

Chad Clifton looks like he will not be back next year, thanks for the memories.

What a difference a year made in A.J. Hawk's play! He never was much more than steady but he quickly turned into a liability this season. Time to part ways.

The 2011 Packer defense lacked something in all but one game this year and ultimately ended a chance for another championship. So if there's anyone still wondering about the old adage "Defense Wins Championships" look at which teams are playing for their Division Championships. New England is the only poor defense playing, they have Brady and Belichick the guys with best experience at hiding warts and finding holes.

Hopefully Thompson and staff can find some D-lineman and Outside Linebacker with pass ability in the draft. A cornerback and safety are needed as well. For that matter maybe a hard evaluation on this year's defensive players needs to be done. Seems the "D" got slow and old over night.

You've got to wonder how many Coaches will be moving up and onward from McCarthy's staff. The passing of Joe Philbin's son was a tragedy and possibly affected the Team's play against the Giants. Sometimes change is good and some fresh ideas on the defense certainly couldn't hurt.

All said and done 2011 was a great year for Packer Fans let's hope for a better 2012 season.

ok still in shock. i just cant get it out of my head that on the 4th and 5 play rogers wasn't lined up in a shot gun. ok so no shot gun so I thought he would do a hard count but no hard count. I guess they were gift wrapping the game to the G men. bummed the black and blue division is out of it. I am sure SF is thanking GB for another home game. ugggg this sux.

and how about that onside kick?

_________________________________________

This game was lost before the teams stepped on the field.....I formed that opinion after hearing B.J. Raji call the Giants O-line "soft" to the national media. B.J. is a very good player, or more specifically, can be when he has his head on straight and is hungry to win football games. All season long, B.J. mocked opposition, and referred to their Champion status to anyone who would listen.

That was last year, B.J.!

Young teams are nice as they never lack for enthusiasm, but they hurt when they lack dedication. This team, in some important ways, lacked dedication to this season....figuring it was theirs to have, they spent last years capital instead of investing in this year's journey.

Sam Shields...last year an up and coming star. This year, nowhere to be found when it mattered.

Charlie Peprah....you can use your arms to tackle!

Erik Walden.......Houdini never disappeared this swiftly.

Jermichael Finley....you just played your way out of a huge payday. I can cite 6 TEs that make you look below average.

There are more, but this is enough.

Last year, young and hungry. This year young and with heads in clouds.

Let's hope the hunger returns, and that TT spends the majority of his draft on defense....and that he drafts guys who realize you can use their arms to tackle instead of pinballing off the opposition.

Go Pack!!

Defense wins championships ! Worst defense in the league and 3rd best offense just didn't do it this season. Plus the long layoff for Rodgers and taking the last game of the season as a vacation day didn't help either. In Lombardi's day that would have been unheard of. Wasted season. Squandered home field with a one and out showing. Very disappointing ! Would have rather lost during the run last season. To be beaten by a team that you've beaten once and are clearly better than bring back shades of 2007 !

Greg B.

hey mike, I "booked it". What happened to your 45-10 prediction? Packer defense is an absolute joke and their recievers have some of the worst hands in the NFL. Capers must go and i thnk Finley needs to be traded for someone who catches more balls than he drops.

Adam

If they pay Finley any more than minimum $$ they are fools. Send him to somebody else who will listen to how good he is while he drops passes...

Aw Jesus Christ no. There are no words for this. Those goshd-mn sons-of-b-tches in blue did it to us again. We should have known that cake schedule and crap-tastic defense was going to come back and bite us. And we can't even blame Brett Favre this time. Aaron finally gets to play in the postseason at home and this happens. Vince is looking down from heaven and facepalming at Mike McMeathead. Trying to go for it on 4th and 7. Such genius. A high school coach would have been smarter than that.

Only two things can be said about this horrific end to our season. First, MM needs to be fired right now. Second. Please beat the Giants next week, Frisco. Do it for us.

The time has come to put the chips all in on both sides of the ball for our Packers. The 15-1 record serves nothing more now but home field advantage. A great season can become an awesome season with three more wins. No reason to hold anything back in this game against the GI-Ants. Hopefully the Packer defense plays well and the O-line continues to protect A-Rod so we score more points and the Giants go home to prepare for the 2012 "regular season".

No Packer turnovers in this game along with a few Giant's turnovers sprinkled in would make for an enjoyable game.

Go Pack Go!!!

All right, we get the blue guys. We should take care of them easily. This isn't 2007. We're a _much_ stronger team than back then and they don't have the elite-level defense they did either.

This will be a repeat of last year's regular season match. We win 45-10. Book it.

So long Matt Flynn , after that game against the lions you just made yourself a lot of money. Hopefully we will be able to at least get a 2nd or 3rd round pick for him. Home field advantage is awesome but i think we all know who is going to be in the NFC championship game Packers/Saints and that may be even better then the match up in the Superbowl and between these two teams they could score 100pts. GO PACK BACK 2 BACK

So.... someone was telling me that they're still playing football. I didn't believe it... but I'm pretty sure I saw it myself last Sunday.

I'm still fairly confident that's true... Football is over.

As for our D GRAB GRAB GRAB Vince woud have had a stroke

Where do you even begin?. Everyone I am sure has something about it that will drive them crazy.

Future is beyond bright but it hurts. We did not show up today and play, no excuses.

Only bright spots and they were too few were Bishops hits, The way Starks ran .( He is what we need more of in a runner, someone who does not always run right into people and hope for the best) and of course Driver showing the other guys how to CATCH anything thrown your way,

What was most hard to take was lack of urgency. Noone seemed to want to tackle as if their lives depended on it, Hold the ball the same way. And this AFTER the Giants were poking at the ball all game!!!

One thing I never want to see again other than the way the DB gave up the hail Mary)is a Grant run or Finley drop. Grant either runs like the first play (and not often enoug) or straight right into the tacklers!!

Offseason plan number 1: Either drop Grant or make him watch over and over old Jim Brown film and learn how to run hard and look to hit people first, instead of waiting for tacklers to come and let them strip ball from him, We had a chance even after all the mistakes but that was the proverbial final nail in the end !

Have a great winter everyone

_________________________________________

What a crappy game. Dropped passes? Fumbles? We gave up a hail mary for God's sake? We sucked the entire game. One way or another this team was not mentally into it.

I don't even blame McCarthy. He could see it, but there was nothing he could do. We were a step slow all game long. I think he had damn good ideas in the onside kick and going for that 4th down. Anything to wake them up. Maybe it was the rust from the rest. Maybe they were all freaked out by the Philbin tragedy. Don't know. But this was by far the worst performance of the year at the worst possible time.

Now, we have to do something with this excuse for a defense. We need D linemen. We need a ROLB. We need to replace Charlie Peprah with anybody.

But we still have the best QB in the league, and we'll be back. The march to Super Bowl 47 begins.
