Speak Out Spew Off...
Packers finish up the preseason with a "here's a reason why 4 preseason games are a few too many" game against the Chiefs in K.C....

Now if they made me in charge of the chainsaw and it was my choice for the final cuts. This is what the Packers roster would be projected to be:

  • QB - Aaron Rodgers, Matt Flynn, Graham Harrell
  • RB - Ryan Grant, Brandon Jackson, Kregg Lumpkin
  • FB - John Kuhn, Quinn Johnson, Korey Hall
  • WR - Donald Driver, Greg Jennings, James Jones, Jordy Nelson, Brett Swain, Jason Chery, Charles Dillon, Chastin West, Patrick Williams
  • TE - Jermichael Finley, Spencer Havner, Andrew Quarless, Tom Crabtree,
    Donald Lee
  • T  - Chad Clifton, T.J. Lang, Mark Tauscher, Bryan Bulaga, Chris Campbell, Allen Barbre, Breno Giacomini
  • G  - Daryn Colledge, Josh Sitton, Marshall Newhouse, Jason Spitz, Nick MacDonald
  • C  - Scott Wells, Evan Dietrich-Smith
  • CB - Charles Woodson, Tramon Williams, Jarrett Bush, Sam Shields, Brandon Underwood, Pat Lee, DJ Clark
  • S  - Nick Collins, Morgan Burnett, Charlie Peprah, Derrick Martin, Anthony Levine, Will Blackmon
  • LB - Nick Barnett, Brad Jones, A.J. Hawk, Brady Poppinga, Brandon Chillar, Desmond Bishop, Clay Matthews, Frank Zombo, Robert Francois, Alex Joseph, Cyril Obiozor, Maurice Simpkins,
  • DE - Ryan Pickett, Cullen Jenkins, Mike Neal, Justin Harrell, CJ Wilson, Ronald Talley, Jarius Wynn
  • DT - B.J. Raji, Anthony Toribio
  • K  - Mason Crosby
  • P  - Tim Masthay, Chris Bryan
  • LS - Brett Goode

Pup List / Injured Reserve
  • CB - Al Harris
  • RB - James Starks
  • S  - Atari Bigby


Injured Reserve
  • RB - Quinn Porter
  • CB - Josh Bell

There was no effort to guess on any trades involving Jason Spitz, Breno Giacomini, Justin Harrell, Donald Lee or a few others who might have some very late round value on the trading block or any effort into who might also end up on the Injured Reserve list, like Will Blackmon for example. It's also obvious that when both Al Harris and Atari Bigby are ready to go 6 weeks in, that the real cut-down between Peprah-Martin and Underwood-Lee will happen.

Packer Palace Predicts 2010...
Friday, August 27, 2010 -   So I'm finally getting around to the big blockbuster prediction for the NFC North this year after waiting a few weeks longer than usual, my previous modus operandi was to predict away before the 1st Packers pre-season game, when you have no knowledge of injuries, cuts, etc... so this year the ol' beer-stained and cheese-encrusted magic crystal ball should be able to give us a clearer picture of what's ahead.

After all the Packers have played 3 preseason games, un-even in many respects with the 24-27 loss to the Browns, the 27-24 win against the Seahawks, the 59-24 crazy fun 3rd game against the Colts, the one where the starters played for the 1st half and into the 3rd quarter, the game that's supposed to be a good indicator of what the Pack will be playing in the regular season to come. There was a lot to like in that game, plays and schemes you know are going to work well this year.

So what does the crystal ball reveal, first off, it says "hey beerkid, you locked those win-loss records in weeks ago and haven't changed them since". Yeah, that's correct, I didn't need the Blitz Beer stained and Cheddar Cheese encrusted ball to come up with that. I was just using a prediction tool for confirmation of events to come from beyond the bend of time and space... ... and I got it!

Packers go 12-4 with a near walk away with the NFC North Title. Vikings will continue to struggle to match what they accomplished last year and slip down to 9-7, with the Bears following at 7-9, and the Lions go cellar dweller for another year, improving to 4-12.

Packers  
Vikings  
Bears  
Lions  
12
9
7
4
-

-
-
4
7
9
12  

 

Yep, that's as sure of a thing as any Blitz Beer stained, Cheddar Cheese encrusted, drenched completely with the Green-N-Gold Koolaid prognosticator can predict. Packers roll... Vikings fade... Bears duh Bears... Lions last. That's going to be the 2010 NFC North Final Standings.

...now tell me how I'm so messed up that it's obvious I must be wrong:

All the pundits are picking the Pack to go to the Super Bowl putting a big green and gold target on our backs. Lets see if we can live up to the hype. 2010 prediction: Packers 12-4 win division, beat the NY Jets in Super Bowl. I'm just saying.

Jared S
________________________________

I got the Pack at 11-5 for the season. Winning the North and not even having to play the queens in the playoff because they do not make it. I will take the queens at 8-8, the Bears at 9-7 and the Lions at 5-11. That is how I see it. Pack in the Super Bowl vs whatever piece of crap they put up there. Go Pack Go. Brent Favre can get bent.

The following article that was just posted over at jsonline this afternoon makes me very sad, and angry. Sad for Aaron Rodgers, and angry at the so-called "fans" who treated him in such a disgusting, inexcuseable way. This is not how genuine Packers fans treat their players - much less the starting quarterback who was thrown into an absolutely impossible situation and has handled it with nothing but grace, class, and brilliant play.

http://www.jsonline.com/sports/packers/102305684.html

Needless to say, these losers are NOT Packers fans, they are nothing but #4 psycophants/groupies. Shame on them.

I respect and admire ARodg even more than I did before after reading this article, and I can't WAIT for him to get his ultimate revenge by hoisting the Lombardi while donned in the Green&Gold.

Go Pack!! Go Aaron!!

Packers Verses Vikings...
Once Again It's That Time Of Year
Though The Reality Seems Quite Hard
As The Green And Shining Leaves Of Summer
Form Drifts In The Corners Of Our Yards

This Now Seems To Be The Time
When Summer's Heat And Passion Slip Away
With The Summer Sun Setting A Little Bit Earlier
Shortening These Early Autumn Days

There Are Some Saving Graces For This Season
Like The Leaves' Brilliant Colors Before They Fall
And What's Become Our Favorite Pastime
Watching And Playing American Football

Most Of Us Who Call Ourselves Football Fans
Find It Hard To Wait For The Season To Begin
As We Wonder, Plan And Really Hope
Our Favorite Teams Will Dominate Once Again

The Teams That Most Of Us Follow Closely
Green Bay's Packers And The Minnesota Vikes
Last Year Played Late Into The Postseason
Though Their Final Scores Weren't Anything To Like

The Vikings Entered Last Football Season
Unsure Of Just Where Their Future Would Lead
Feeling Like They Were Near A Breakthrough
But Knowing They Carried Some Serious Needs

The Vikes Were In Need Of A Big-Time Quarterback
So The Reached Out For A Familiar Face And Name
Reclaiming The Game Of Brett Lorenzo Favre
Whose Play Against The Vikings Contributed To His Fame

This Was The Sort Of Move That Carries Much Risk
As The Question Is Can He Still Bring His Level Of Play
But In What Shouldn't Have Really Been A Surprise
Brett Came Rolling Back Easily All The Way

In Fact He Looked As Good As He Had In Recent Memory
Like His Game He Gone Through A Rebirth
Despite The Doubts Shown In The Preseason
There Could Be No Questions About His Worth

Between The Rebirth Of Brett's Game
And The Best Defense That Coach Chilly Could Devise
As The Season Wore On Minnesota's Fans
Started Searching For Super Bowl Travel Buys

However Their Season Came To A Sudden End
As Has Happened So Many Times Before
When The Vikes Faced The Saints For A Super Bowl Berth
And Wound Up Short On The Final Score

Vikings' Fans Have Commented They Thought The Saints Exceeded
The Level Of Violence Regarded As "Ok"
But They Still Had A Chance Until An Errant Pass
Simply Gave Any Chance To Win Away

Now As The Vikings Kick Off This Year's Season
Their First Opponent Turns Out To Be New Orleans
And While For Some Reason Some Think The Saints Are Doomed
The Results Will Have To Remain To Be Seen

The Vikes Go Into This Year's Meatgrinder
Being Pretty Much The Reincarnation Of Last Year
Other Than A Few Changes Due To Injury
Which Aren't Seeming To Cause The Coaching Staff Much Fear.

Sidney Rice Had Surgery On A Hip
And Will Miss A Month And A Half
And Of All The Unusual Ailments, Percy's Sleep Apnea
Has Got To Make Most People Want To Laugh.....
 

The Green Bay Packers Also Played Quite Well
Looking Clearly Like A First-Rate Contender
They Took Arizona's Cardinals To Overtime
A Feat That Proved They Were Far From Being Pretenders

Unfortunately Young Aaron Rodgers Showed Us
That He Has Learned Some Crisis-Moves From Brett
As His Pass Turned Out To Be A Bit Off-Line
Causing All Packer Fans To Break Into An Icy Sweat

And Yes The Cardinals Intercepted It
Running Easily Into The Arizona End Zone
Ending Green Bay's Attempt To Advance In The Playoffs
And Leaving Aaron Rodgers Standing All Alone

It Was The End Of A Most Productive Season
One Where Problems And Shortcomings Were Overcome By The Pack
Problems Like An Offensive Line That Struggled Early
And Was Capable Of Yielding Fifty-One Sacks

By Season's End However That Offensive Line Had Healed
As The Running Game Became Most Effective At Last
And The Passing Game Worked Like A Finely-Tuned Machine
Rivaling The Play Of A Favre-Led Team From Season's Past

The Question That's Been Carried Over From Last Season
Isn't Too Different From The One Carried Over Every Year
Can The Packers Carryover The Things That Worked
While Making The Things That Didn't Simply Disappear

Really There Isn't A Lot To Be Abandoned
As Most Things Worked Out Pretty Well
Or At Least That Is The Way That It Looked To Us
So Far As Our Vantage Point Could Tell

Aaron Rodgers Will Still Be At The Helm
Demonstrating His Right Arm And His Brain
As The Scoring Passes He Fires Down The Field
Fall Into The Endzones Like So Much Scoring Rain

Ryan Grant Should Be Able To Continue To Carry The Team
As The Running Game Fills The Role That's Needed
Because The Offensive Line Gets Nothing But Better
And At Games' End Their Play Has Clearly Succeeded

The Packers' Defense Last Year Came Together
And Were Able To Shut Many Opponents Down
With Superior Talent And A Winning Game Plan
Other Offenses Found Themselves Being Pushed Around

As The Team Prepares For This Season
Many Experts In The Press And On Tv
Are Predicting Great Things For The Boys
I Guess We'll Just Have To Wait And See

The Guys Who're Wearing Green And Gold
Have Some Huge Expectations To Live Up To
As Long As They Don't Let Their Egos Get In The Way
There May Be No Limit To The Things They Can Do...

Packers Win 27-20, 1st Place NFC North...

Packers win 27-20 over the Philadelphia Eagles in their first game of the year in a place they haven't won in nearly 50 years. I didn't expect much else, the Packers looked sloppy at key points but woke up late in the 2nd quarter and during the 3rd quarter to gain a 27-10 lead before relaxing a little and letting QB Michael Vick run and pass the Eagles back into the game. Packers are 1-0 and sitting on top of the NFC North.

Well, tied with the Bears who won their opener over the Detroit Lions on a unique call. Originally, a Referee was using this criteria to judge a WR falling out of bounds, maintaing possession of the ball after contact with the ground, out of bounds. Now, a WR like Calvin Johnson, can't make a wild catch in the end-zone with 2 feet down, a hip down, a hand down, hand sliding out of bounds, hand with ball down, fumble??? That's 5 contact points down in the field of play after defensive contact and it's ruled an incomplete pass. Correct call??? Bad rule.

#66Chica: Interesting question about Childress. On one hand, it's hard to imagine that Childress could possibly suck any more than he sucks right now. But on the other hand, it seems highly likely that he'll keep on sucking and sucking forever. It might be a trick question, too, because I'm not sure if one snake will actually bite another snake.

Regarding Calvin Johnson, this is a case where a to-the-letter interpretation of a rule clearly got in the way of what 20 million people could see from a mile away. It might not have conformed to the written rule, but we all know he caught the damn ball.

If Burnt Fart had even 1% of the class that AR has this whole subject wouldn't be being discussed.

Do I wish BF ill? NO but if he never wins another game it's OK with me.

Beer Kid, Here's a Sept. 11 related story for you. Being a lifelong Packer fan now living on the east coast I try to attend at least one game a year at Lambeau. In 2008 I had two tickets to the Colts game on Oct. 19 and was planning to attend with my son. At the last minute he was deployed early to Afghanistan and couldn't join me. I traded my two end zone tickets for one on the 50 behind the Packers bench. After the fly-over the guy next to me saw a tear in my eye and said his son had returned from Iraq a couple of months earlier.

After I told him my story he stood up and repeated it to the entire section. I soon had my own (or I should say my son had his own) standing ovation. Also, I enjoyed so much free beer I could hardly walk out of the place - and of course the Pack won the game. I'll be back this week with some friends to witness the win over the Bills. My son is safe and home at the moment but will soon return for his 7th 60-day tour. Packer fans are the greatest!

east coast fan


Hey east coast fan, awesome story, thanks, enjoy the Packers Bills game, send thanks to your son, and yes, Packer fans are the greatest, and everyone has a little trouble walking out of Lambeau Field after a Packers win.  BK

NFC North Nick-Names...
...from Scott Allen over at Mental Floss blog on the origins for all 32 NFL Teams: http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/65044

Green Bay Packers
Team founder Earl "Curly" Lambeau's employer, the Indian Packing Company, sponsored Green Bay's football team and provided equipment and access to the field. The Indian Packing Company became the Acme Packing Company and later folded, but the nickname stuck.

Detroit Lions
Radio executive George A. Richards purchased and moved the Portsmouth Spartans to Detroit in 1934 and renamed the team the Lions. The nickname was likely derived from Detroit's established baseball team, the Tigers, who won 101 games and the AL pennant that year. As the team explained it, "The lion is the monarch of the jungle, and we hope to be the monarch of the league." (Spot on!?)

Chicago Bears
In 1921, the Decatur Staleys, a charter member of the American Professional Football Association, moved to Chicago and kept their nickname, a nod to the team's sponsor, the Staley Starch Company. When star player George Halas purchased the team the following year, he decided to change the nickname. Chicago played its home games at Wrigley Field, home of baseball's Cubs, and Halas opted to stick with the ursine theme. (PS, is assinine misspelled?)

Minnesota Vikings
According to the Vikings' website, Bert Rose, Minnesota's general manager when it joined the NFL in 1961, recommended the nickname to the team's Board of Directors because "it represented both an aggressive person with the will to win and the Nordic tradition in the northern Midwest." The expansion franchise also became the first pro sports team to feature its home state, rather than a city, in the team name. (The Minnesota Twins actually started play before the Vikings in 1961, but the Vikings announced their name first.) (Nothing about the annoying horn)

Packers Verses Vikings...
This Football Season Started With A Bang
As Those Saints Came "A-Marchin' In"
They Sized Up Brett And The Vikings' Team
Then Let Them Have One Squarely On The Chin

While The Vikings Played A Better Game
Than They Did In The Last Championship Game
Even With The New Orleans Team Showing Restraint
The Final Outcome Was The Same

While Vikes Fans Walked Away Feeling Empty
Saints' Fans Loved Their Team's Exciting Start
Meanwhile Are The Vikes Short On Talent?
Or Maybe They're Out Of Heart

The Week It's The Dolphins From Miami
Who Will Challenge Minnesota's Boys
The Team That Brought Back The' Wildcat'
And Find It A Most Effective And Useful Ploy

The 'Phins Are Coming Off An Opening Win
Which Was Pretty Ugly By All Accounts
Minnesota Should Be Able To Get Past Them
If They Keep Miami's Score A Manageable Amount

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Packers Broke A Couple Of Things
While Playing The Eagles Last Week
The Valuable Leg Of A Running Back
And A Philly-Based 38 Year Losing Streak

The Game Had An Element Of 'Turnabout Is Fair Play'
Because At The Rate The Eagles Suffered Injuries
They'd Have Soon Run Out Of Fill-In Players
Or At Least That Is Sure The Way It Seemed

It Wasn't As Easy As The Packers May Have Thought
Surely Not As Easy As Packers Fans Expected
 

But Aaron Rodgers And His Receiving Corps
Showed Why They Are So Well Respected

This Week Opponent Is The Buffalo Bills
A Team Who Lost To The Dolphins Just Last Week
The Packers Should Be Thankful To Play Them
While It's Offensive Stability They Seek

And In A Feature The Packers Don't Usually Provide
While Rumors Swirl Around These Teams Like Smoke
As The Talk Is Of The Packers Trading For A Bills Running Back
Though No One Knows If It's Truth Or Just A Joke

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Vikings Should Be Able To Net The 'Phins
Although Their Wide Receiver Locker Is Nearly Dry
While The Packers Will Thunder To Two And Oh
And Grab Marshawn Lynch As They Are Passing By

So, the question will be, will the Pack and the vikes both wind up at 1-1 or is it more likely to see GB at 2-0 and just MN at 1-1?? Only time will tell!

Thanks to Mike-whose generosity and kind spirit is allowing me to head over to Green Bay this week for the game. You're the best!! AND if anybody is intersested you can also find me at: www.caringbridge.org/visit/carlnelson

Have a great week everybody!

Speak Out Spew Off...

Some late Friday afternoon musings on the Packers Bills game coming up this Sunday on CBS. The Packers are not going to miss RB Ryan Grant in this upcoming game, they are however, going to miss him quite a bit down the stretch. RB Brandon Jackson can look OK at times, he appears to catch the swing/screen pass and can motor for 1st down through traffic when you don't expect it, but he's going to have to take a big step up to be a number 1 back. Using FB John Kuhn in spot duty as a tailback works alright most of the short yardage time, especially if FB Quinn Johnson is leading the blocking attack. Which leaves the Packers bringing in RB Dimitri Nance from the Falcons practice squad to fill in as backup. That still leaves James Johnson on the Packers practice squad and rookie draft pick James Starks on the PUP list. Not to put too much emphasis on this but this reminds me of the 2005 4-12 year where the Packers running backs rotated through Ahman Green, Tony Fisher, Samkon Gado, Noah Herron, Najev Davenport, ReShard Lee, and Antonio Chatman.

Which leads to the hot rumor, or something that seems likely, in that LB A.J. Hawk could be traded to the Bills for RB Marshawn Lynch. Maybe not likely, but at least makes some sense for both teams. Certainly wasn't going to happen before the game this Sunday, sort of like how the alleged trade of G/C Jason Spitz to the Eagles before that game in week 1 was never going to happen. Maybe next week we'll see some kind of 3 way trade between the Packers, Bills, and Eagles involving multiple players from each team.

The Packers should be ready to overwhelm the Bills in Green Bay, expect Packer QB Aaron Rodgers to throw for over 300 yards, RB Brandon Jackson to have over 100 yards in combined yardage, and the biggest thing to expect this week? That would be K Mason Crosby NOT sending any of his kick-offs out of bounds. So look for a final score to be around 31-13 in the Packers favor and if you're looking for teams to root for besides the Packers, this week that would be the Dolphins, the Eagles (ugggh) and the Cowboys (double ugggh).

Michelle finally delivered on her interviews from the 2010 ESPY's held last July in Los Angeles. No Packers players this year, but we do get interviews from former Packers/Vikings Darren Sharper, rookie QB Tim Tebow, Coach Sean Payton and NY WR Steve Smith. As always, we give our deepest thanks to Michelle for contributing to Packer Palace when she's off working on her normal gigs and crosses paths with the NFL. As one of our roving off-site Producers, she's always thinking of us... and we do appreciate that, immensely.

Packers Win 34-7, 1st Place NFC North...

So the Green Bay Packers roll the Buffalo Bills 34-7, pretty much as every single prognosticator had predicted. Honestly, I don't think I saw anyone giving the Bills more than 17 points, and almost every single one had the Packers scoring over 30 points. In the end, only the near absolute zero production of the 2nd quarter left us in a near panic state, but eventually the Bills folded, the Packers ramped up their effort and clobbered the undermanned Bills.

In other NFL news, some old guy playing for the Vikqueens had 3 ints and a fumble, and despite the effort from their pro bowl RB, got slammed by a Dolphin team that only beat the Bills by 5 points last week. All in all, a great day to be drinking Arrogant Bastard Ale and watching football. I don't even mind that the duh Bears beat the Cowboys, just makes their way above their means expectations are waiting for the Clay Matthews and Packers D to come to chi-town and deliver a beat down of epic proportions in an epic game of ancient hated rivals and their identical 2-0 records on Monday Night.

Hey Marty, there's just something about Arrogant Bastard Ale from Stone Brewery in San Diego that just syncs up with my body chemistry... but the Unser Aventinus from Schneider-Weisse Brewery in Germany certainly looks appealing, I'll keep my eye for it the next time I'm feeling adventurous. Thanks for the beer tip.  BK

Packers Verses Vikings...
The Vikings' Defense Has Played Well Enough
For That Team To Have Scraped Up Some Wins
But Brett And The Minnesota Vikings' Defense
Have Stumbled And Come Up Short Again

The Vikings Defense Is Not The Primary Problem
Though They Have As Yet Not Managed To Produce A Win
Instead It's That Once-Respected Minnesota Offense
That Keeps Taking Blows To The Chin

Last Season Favre Possessed A Pocketful Of Magic
That He Could Pull Out And Use Any Time It Was Needed
But To The Dismay Of Viking Fans, Both The Saints And The Fins
Have Left The Vikings Broken And Defeated

This Week They'll Face A Familiar Foe
One That Always Challenges The Vikes
And This Year With Minnesota Somewhat Hobbled
The Outcome May Be More To Detroit's Liking

While The Lions Haven't Managed To Pull Out A Win
They've Been Showing The Possibility Exists
It's Only The Awkward Things They Do
That Won't Let The Lions And A Winning Season Coexist

The Lions Are Finding That This Season Won't Be Easy
With Their Number One Qb Having A Damaged Wing
And Charles Johnson Leaving Catches On The Ground
While The Lions' Rookie Back Shows He's 'Best' At Everything

The Packers Took The Field At Noon Last Sunday
Welcoming The First Home Crowd To Lambeau Field
Preparing To Take On A Buffalo Team
Who's Previous Game Lead Them To Yield

Aaron Rogers Continued His Weekly Pattern
Of Showing He's One Of The Best Quarterbacks Around
While The Bills' Quarterback Did His Best
To Keep Clay Matthews From Throwing Him To The Ground
 

While The Pack Was Making Adjustments
Trying To Fill The Gap Left Behind By Ryan Grant
It Was Becoming More And More Evident
The Chances He's On The Roster Were Pretty Scant

Monday Night However After Another Week Of Planning
Coach McCarthy Should Have The Packers On The Right Track
And Will Set Things Up So The Bears Get Crushed
By The New And Improved Green Bay Pack

While Kyle Orton Has Been Looking Like A Professional
And The Chicago Defense Will As Always Open Your Eyes
Overall However Green Bay Will Supress The Bears
No Matter Just How Many Tricks They Try

If History Turns Out To Be Any Sort Of Guide
The Vikings Should Hand The Lions A Serious Beating
Not Unlike How The Packers Will Treat The Bears
During These Teams' One Hundred Eightieth Meeting

Packers 'verses' Vikings: A Poetic Perspective

After watching Clay Matthews and Aaron Rogers as well as everyone else whale on the Bills, I really have some very positive feelings about this team.... If I'm right, and there is no reason to believe I shouldn't be.... this might well become a very long season!!

Speak Out Spew Off...

So we're getting down to about a 1/2 day away from an appearance on Cheesehead Radio tonight, and just giving a simple shout out reminder to anyone so inclined to dial-surf right in:

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/cheeseheadradio

So stop by and join the fun that's sure to be had. Hell, it's Bears Packers week and that means it's time to talk some alcohol influenced football smack.

Update: So that didn't seem to go to bad... you can re-listen to the Cheesehead Radio broadcasts at anytime - look for the player on the righthand side and click on "Even on Monday Night... The Bears Still Suck!". I had a great time, a couple glasses of Arrogant Bastard Ale, CD Angeli, Jersey Al, Holly and Jayme made me feel right at home, like sitting on a favorite bar stool talking Pack with long-time friends. Thanks to all of them and Cheesehead Radio for the invite.

dfarmer, You hit it right on the head. A lot of these guys keep bitching about how TT has been drafting, but look at most of the results. They complain that we should have Vernon Davis instead of AJ Hawk. Finley's better. Hawk is above average. Every year we hear how horrible the draft is, yet look at how good the players are that make up the roster. Free agents might be worth pursuing, but look at the so called best free agent every year and see how they helped the team that paid them huge dollars. Haynesworth and Houshmandzadeh for example.

GO PACK (oh yeah Clay Matthews for DPOY)

Presagin' Packer Prognosticators...


Q:  Will the Packers win this Monday night down in Chicago against duh Bears?
A:  As I see it, yes.
Q:  Just for fun, are the Vikes going to beat the Lions on Sunday?
A:  Better not tell you now.

Magic Gold G-Ball


It's kind of hard to go on Cheesehead Radio and spout off a prediction about the Packers Bears Monday night matchup without coming back and writing it down. The prognosticatin' (that would be thinking to you normal earth-bound types and BS'ing to you tavern-types) sort of goes like this: Packers up 17 - 6 for a large portion of the game, duh Bears score 8 to make it 17 - 14 favoring the Pack. The Packers score right away to make it 24 - 14 and not sure how much time is left, that's a bit hazy still, but that scores ends up the final. Packers beat duh Bears 24 - 14.

Q:  Hey G-Ball, what about the Vikings?    MGGB:  Ask again later.

Spew Off Speak Out...



Groan.... That sucked!!!


Man, that couldn't have gone any worse... Packers make enough mistakes to lose 5 games, and still duh Bears had to kick in a cheap FG to win it at the end 20-17. Can anyone tell me this, does Coach McCarthy really think he's some kind of f**kin' genius with all these blown replay calls? I don't... I'm starting to wonder if he's even head coach material anymore. Hey let's teach our WR's to hold the ball in their left hands when running down the right sideline, and if your going to unleash CM3, at least show him how to tackle without using Cutler's helmet to accomplish the job, do I even need to mention the whole punch the ball out to create a fumble instead of ripping his head off.

The Bears ran 2 punts back, for pretty much everything, all the rest was given to them by the not-ready-for-primetime Packers. Gawd that performance sucked!!!

F**kin' eh! I didn't even mention the fact that the Pack has no running game what-so-ever. All week long we heard the you dont' need a running game in the NFL anymore, look at the Colts, look at the Cardinals, look at the Chargers, they all made it deep into the playoffs without a running game. Yeah, they also f**kin' lost. I'm now of the opinion that if the Pack got Marshawn Lynch from the Bills, he would instantly be the best back on the roster, by long strides...

Hey Beerkid ... I'll say it, when most of you are thinking it, "we deserved to lose last night" ... The stupid penalties and coaching led us down the path to destruction. Could you imagine Coach Holmgren on the sidelines during the game instead of Coach "McMeathead?" Holmgren would have everyone committing stupid mistakes held accountable AND benched along with their face mask in his paws while chewing the idiot in question a new one on National TV ("Do not adjust your TV set, Coach Holmgren's head is really glowing RED and about to POP!") McCarthy was only shaking his head while taking off and later putting back on his headset while being told to toss a challenge flag for a ridiculous call that we would eventually lose the challenge to. Wouldn't that additional time out come in handy toward the end of the game, eh?

The recipe for disaster included 53 parts of insanity mixed with one dumb F'n Head Coach and absolutely no discipline.

How about Nick Collins rocketing his mouth guard at one dumb fucking F.I.B. (Fucking Illinois Bastard) in the stands after the game?

If Da-Bears organization show anytime of class, they could do it by identifying the "MOTHER F'R" who was being verbally abusive to Collins and yanking his season tickets for life.

We should be 3-0 right now, but give it time. The mysterious F.I.B. rubbing their "Bears Rosary beads" will soon tip and Da-Bears unmeasurable dumb stupid ass luck will run out and Lovey will be let go at the end of the season and George Blanda will be hired as his replacement...oh wait, George unfortunately passed away recently (R.I.P. George). Okay, perhaps we should fire Coach McMeathead and STILL hire Blanda and have him propped up on the sidelines (ala Weekend at Bernies) and watch the Fucking W's roll in.

BTW Beerkid, your "Rockwood" this week was AWESOME ...

What a great time for Detroit to visit Green Bay, although in my mind Da-Lions beat Da-Bears in week one ... Man .. once again our Division Sucks and so do Da-Bears.

Those lucky "MOTHER F'R'S!!!"

________________________________________

Sorry, but I can't slam Thompson for last night's mess. Penalties and Special Teams are on the coach--McCarthy coached his worst game yet with this team. Last year against the Ravens we set the team record for penalty yards in a game, and last night we set the record for most penalties. High cotton, McGoogle-eye. I think we have the talent to win it all, but not the coaching. Care to challenge THAT, McCarthy?

Ruppert
________________________________________

Kid - I second all your thoughts and will up the call. Let's take a place out of SF's playbook and send a message and fire the special teams coach. Let's get TT and the other "lets only build through the draft disciples" to come off the early morning walk on the back 40 to find a back RIGHT NOW!!!! Finally, we have to hope the D and O line make it through the season with no injuries,some of them looked very old and gassed. Where is the depth to give some of these guys a rest. I won't go into my Justin Harrell rant for the 100th time but why did we even have him taking a space on the roster? Finally, this penalty issue has went on for years. Someone needs their ass kicked, you pick either the coaches or the players - just kick someones ass!!!

I guess I always think we are better than we are. Rodgers is a great quarterback, without him it would not even be close.

CAMP
________________________________________

For all those TT and MM defenders out there, last night was a perfect example of what is wrong with those two yo yo's. TT refuses to bolster his team with vetran FA's. He wants to always be the youngest team in the league. He wants to cut the best punter in the league (and never tell us why), but he refuses to cut the dog Justin Harrell (and there are plenty of reasons to do it). He has a coach in MM who has no control over the team. NONE.

Along with all those elements you have a QB who played pretty much a flawless game only to be thwarted by the young players who play an undiciplined game, your punting game completely sucks, special teams are far from special, and they take two INT's and a TD off the board with stupid penalties. 18 F'N PENALTIES? Are you kidding me? Give me a break. MM has no control over that team.

C'mon Ted, pull your head out of your ass and bring in a vetran RB or a Defensive leader to fill those holes in your team. Stop being so damn stubborn, or arrogant, and get it done. You have a special team here that can do great things and all you have to do is fill in the F'N holes.

I am so frustrated about last night, even though it is only one game, the boys maybe have been humbled a bit and they will stop reading their press clippings. Damn TT get your shit together. CUT THAT DOG JUSTIN HARRELL. You have left us short on the DL because of it. ADMIT YOU WERE WRONG AND MOVE ON. Those of us who hate you will still hate you, but maybe respect you a bit more.

Go Pack Go. Beat the shitty lions. Brent Favre sucks.

What a sorry ass game. Maybe we should attempt a FG everytime instead of a punt. At least then no team could run it back on us. Living in Houston, I'm first a Packer fan, but I also like the Texans. It hurt to see them lose to the Cowgirls, but nothing as bad as losing to Chicago. McCarthy needs to be replaced. Bill Cowher is looking for a job.

What a disraceful, disgusting, shameful, pitifull, embarassing display of football last night! This team is a Super Bowl contender? A poor second half against the Eagles, a bad first half vs. the Bills, and a terrible game at the Bears. Eighteen penalties!! (including a forward lateral on that joke of a return at the end of the game-proper joke of an ending to a joke of a game) They look more like a toilet bowl contender. I am rarely negative when it comes to the Packers but it is very frustrating to see a team as talented as them play like this. Am I wrong or shouldn't they have allowed the Bears to score a TD late in the game so they could get the ball back in time to try to tie rather than give up a last second fied goal?

I am not an NFL coach but I have played semi-pro ball and have coached JV, varsity, and college ball. That is a decision any level of coach should make. Coach Mc Carthy blew that. The whole team stunk last night-coaches and players. Our group is going to Lambeau next week vs. Lions...hope they get it together.

Corky DeYulio of the Geneva, NY Packer Backers
________________________________________

WOW! I just read McCarthy's explanation of not letting the Bears score a TD late in the game. He said he felt if the field goal was missed they would win the game. WHAT!!!!! Your job, coach, is to give your players the best chance to win despite the lousy showing you and the players gave us.

First off, I am giddy this morning knowing that all you packer fans are humiliated by your teams performance last night. Second, it should go without saying, but for some reason I feel I must remind you guys, that if Brett Favre was the packers qb last night, the packers would have won. Brett Favre would never allow his team to be as undisciplined as the packers were last night. How embarrassed you all must be.

Adam


hahaha Adam, funny, the most un-disciplined player in the NFL with 6 INT's is going to school some other players on how to be disciplined... no wonder it took a month for you to come back and post about your Vikqueens... haha so funny man.... BK

I am from Albuquerque New Mexico, grew up in Wisconsin. At work there's a sad Bears Fan. A month ago I tried to get him to bet on the Bears against me, I said we could get tickets and fly up to Chicago and watch the game in person. Loser would have had to pay for the other guys air fare and tickets. Needless to say he wouldn't take the bet. Damn I could have been at this game for free. I want to bet him $20 on the game, no deal, I ask $10? No deal, the weenie only wants to bet $2.50 on the Bears. Needless to say I want to see such a major beat down on the bears it's not even funny. Go Pack.

Check out this link to the Packers.com weekly "Dope Sheets". More data about the Packers and their weekly opponent than you'd ever want to know:

Search Packers.Com for Oldest+Rivalry

Here's the history of it from a Packers.com quote: "Two years after he co-founded the Packers with Curly Lambeau, George Calhoun began writing a piece called The Dope Sheet, which served as the official press release and game program from 1921-24."

We Packers Fans enjoy and cherish our history, some other teams fans choose to forget it... We understand why.

From Pro Football HOF: http://www.profootballhof.com/history/ThrowbackGOW_GB_at_CHI.aspx

Interesting to note: ProFootballHOF.com claims this to be the 177th meeting between the two teams, Packers.com says 180. Hmmmmmmmm... Mr. Remmel, can you please assist?

Boz


Hey Boz, thanks for all the info, here's the legendary obit from John Torinus in 1963 for George - Colorful Character and Friend Dies; Story of George W. Calhoun - great read. Always had this Dope Sheet image laying around and nothing to do with it until today.

My high-level research (combing through the Packers Media Guide and using addition) comes up with this as the alltime Packers record vs. duh Bears 82-91-6 which makes this the 180th meeting. I'm sure Lee Remmel would agree. HOF sounds like they're missing last year and the playoff game from the 40's. BK
