Brewers!?!?! I haven't been to a Brewers game since Robin Yount and Paul Molitor and Cecil Cooper, who by the way, tipped a foul ball up to the 3rd deck behind home plate in the old stadium, that I caught with my bare hand!
Finally, TCB has promised us a season ending 'Me and Mr. Walker' article. Rumor has it that it's gotten to manifesto length. We anxiously await. Go Pack!
Well, well, well... Things are looking up!
After the disasterous wild-card exit, the refurb in the coaching ranks is shaping up quite nicely. Bates should bring in a few of his guys and Edgar Bennet finally gets the RB coaching job. Now if they do the right thing and make Lionel Washington the DB coach, things will be all fixed up for next season.
Ya gotta like Bates addressing the tackling situation head-on. It's great to hear someone say that they think pro athletes can be schooled (or maybe re-schooled) in the basics that they should have learned before they got to the NFL.
Good luck gentlemen. I hope Ted Thompson gives Sherman a two-year extension, and all these new guys are there for the ride. I'm very optimistic, but then I'm a Brewers fan too! Les Edwards
Wuz up PACKER BACKERS how yall been I have A VERY GOOD FEELING TOO BROTHER VERY VERY GOOD FEELING. WUZ UP CHRIS! SINCERELY, OUTRAGED PACKER FAN IN DFW TEXAS.

|Nice one Lemondrop. But everyone knows that Darth Vincent is my father.
However, the Beerman might be an Uncle, maybe we're related by beverage...

Hey BeerKid! Did I locate your father? :} check it out! http://www.wisinfo.com/postcrescent/news/beerman/
|PS-Sure is boring with no Packer games to watch anymore. Diggin in for a looong Wisconsin winter! Keep Warm! Lemondrop
Gee, it's nice to be missed. Thanks, Lemondrop. I've been ruminating recent events, and this is what I come up with:
I have a good feeling about Ted Thompson and the future of the franchise, both near and distant. A good feeling. I foresee a Thompson/Sherman collaboration much like the Wolf/Holmgren model. I see Coach Sherman embracing the title "Coach" like he never has, having learned much since 2000, and finding himself unburdened from the headaches of being the General Manager. I see Brett Favre invigorated by off-season manueverings to improve the defense, and by the successful response to treatment by his lovely wife, Deanna. I see him returning with a passion. I see a return to an emphasis on the fundamentals of football, rather than schemes and designs. I see a solid, consistent march to a fourth NFC North title in as many years. And, I see an expanded display case in the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, accomodating another Lombardi Trophy.
I have a good feeling. A very good feeling. Duane in Almost God's Country

Hi ya BeerKid and Everybody! I dunno about the rest of ya , but I took the loss with a glass of Alka Seltzer and a heavy heart. Its now Thursday, and I think I have read everything I wanna read about it, & I think my heart resumed its normal position, and I am still Green and Gold PROUD of Brett and Co!!!!!!!!!!! Hooo Rah! Now we just have to get thru another year of who is getting fired, who is getting "retired"---blah blah blah. I don't believe for 1 minute the Mudducks "defeated" the Packers, somehow we seemed to give it to them? I can't believe the people who think what Moss did was humorous, or acceptable on any level. He is a "shock-jock" ( like TO, Mike Tyson, Rodman, Howard Sterns--you know the lot) I don't care if he kisses babies in buggys, or gives money to charity - The guy is the lowest on my chart.
Let the Mudduck fans have their week. They don't deserve to be where they are, but then again---we did kinda put they plane ticket in their hands. OH WELL!! Division Champs We ARE! Funny how when I look the local Mudduck fans in the eyes...they are the ones that turn theirs away first. That to me - says alot! Lemondrop in God's Country.
PS...Good to hear from Duane in Almost God's Country!!! Was gettin worried about him! :)

Very interesting reading in Monday's submissions. To wit: Where were all you Viking backers leading *into* the games, both regular season and playoff. Where's the support *before* the outcome is known? All these "contributions" from people who call themselves Viking fans, when they are in actuality just Packer haters, only confirms the perception that Viking fans are among the most fair-weather anywhere. So, Packer Fans, feel free to ignore and pity the blind "PACKERS SUCK!" crowd and join me in congratulating our team on four playoff appearances, three Division championships and 13 (count 'em) non-losing seasons in a row. Way to go, my friends! Duane in Almost God's Country
P.S. Good Luck Vikings on Sunday. Represent the Division well.
Oh the Humanity!
On a more positive note... The packers are the division champs... a title they have the class to carry. Let's look for the "Iggles" to kick Moss in the head/ass (totally interchangable,as we saw.... GROSS and they were worried about Janet Jackson) and again they will have nothing to show except their lack of class and the sh!@#t stain they leave on football. Kittylambeau, Green Bay
Sure, the Pack lost - but hey, two out of three! Wouldn't get too hard on yourselves about it. Next year. And don't get too "outraged" at Moss for his silly antics. If Packer Fans didn't moon the visitor busses, he wouldn't have done it. So hey, Lambeau had it coming. - Vikes Fan In Cheesehead Land.

Thanks to Lemondrop for sending this in to us.
favre blows another playoff game
I for one can't wait to see the blog tomorrow... just let me know how all that crow tastes Packer Fans! "Packer Palace is currently closed for reconstruction." MN 31 GB 17 How's that for a Magic Moment?!?
Hey Packer Backers.... I'm writing this with a very sad heart. Not only did we lose, but now I have to call my brother, the vi-queen fan. Then I have to deal with co-workers Monday who are Lamb and Jets fans.........not a good week ahead.
Right now I'm listening to the post-game interviews on packers.com; Brett is talking to the reporters as if he may retire---don't do it Brett! Don't base your decision on your current emotions! Take the off season to think it over. Guaranteed you'll come back next year with a fire in your belly like never before! We still have faith in you getting the Pack to one more superbowl before you retire. A little tweaking here and there in personnel, and team focus and mindset is what we need. We'll have a better year next season. Go Pack! All I can do now is root for someone to put the Patriots out of the superbowl. Then at least I'll feel somewhat vindicated. The whole season wouldn't be in vain.
Also, what was with FOX cutting off the tribute to Reggie White just to go to a commerical?! FOX, that was just WRONG!!
Lastly, Randy Moss, you need your butt kicked for what you did in the end-zone! There was no reason to pull that! You're a incredible loser! No tact whatsoever! That's what I like about the Pack--our guys play like men all the time, total class act! Regardless of the outcome, we always play with our heart, not our ego. Take note, Randy, maybe you can learn something. Lady K Packer Club of Hemet, So. Cal.
Good Evening all. What a glorious day! 2 Regular season wins and 1 loss and out in playoffs. The Vikes cut the Cheese and showed up for a game finally! Wish we were embarASSed for Moss. But where better to take a dump than on Vince's kitchen. Go Vikes!! The season is forgotten and the Victors move on!
Well now I know what "Buckwheat" Moss' ass looks like. I can't say it looks much different from his face! I was in the South end zone, row 2, when he pulled his dance routine. It's funny how his ankle hurts at the appropriate times? Just another rich dumb ass/face! RomanPacker
OOOOUUUUUCCCCCCHHHHHH! That one hurt. I guess we have to wait for next September. Drat! Chris D/FW, tx
packers suck the big 1
Minnesota 31 Green Bay 17 I guess there were several magic moments there but you get my drift. Can't wait to see the blog tomorrow. Maybe you could make a cute little music video about it? After all, you'll have plenty of time seeing as how the folks in purple just ended your season. K W
Wuz up man this is outraged from dfw texas too just trying to get over that lost. well you guys, another season but hey look on the bright side. well man I hope you know you have a good amigo here in ft worth texas my fellow packer backer and may god bless you this offseason. i'm trying to go up there fan fair thing in march, well keep in touch man love yall up there and hold it down for us down here surrounded by cowboys, huh they can't say much this year. Sincerely outraged PACKER TILL WE DIE CARNAL"BROTHER IN SPANISH "
Great comeback Beer Kid! Anyone who thinks that what randy moss did in the end zone is OK, or is just randy being randy, can’t call themselves a real football fan… Now, if they want to be called a vikings fan that’s great, because we expect that kind of garbage from those low life’s… This ain’t the NBA. Paul, I hope you drop the hammer on the rm.
GO PACK, GO! Boz, RF, WI

|Good Morning! Its now 4 hours to kick-off and I see that Lemondrop has already gotten the drop on us. 5AM? What do you put in your coffee? Oh wait, thats right, you've been tail-gating since thursday night...Heh heh eh, Go Packers!
5:00 AM GAMEDAY is finally here! Now if I can just make it to 3:30! lol @ Posted by: Beer Kid / 2:02 AM I see BK is up a tad bit earlier than me???? Admit it folks -- we are Packer Junkies...need a fix on the game from anywhere we can get it! Ain't it GREAT!
The Sports Guru's at ESPN, FOX, etc. are pretty much pickin the Packers. (Wise Choice, O-Men-on-Microphones) I will "probably" check in here again before gametime. Hope to see more that dazzles my eyes and appetite for a Viking Massacre.
|The Mayor of Green Bay declared today "Reggie White Day" Just before kickoff, there will be a special video tribute and a moment of silence for White followed by a military flyover for the NFC Wild Card playoff game. Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt says he's willing to bet the Packers will beat the Minnesota Vikings this weekend. He made a wager with the mayor of Minneapolis. When the Packers win, the mayor of Minneapolis promises to send Mayor Schmitt a pound of fudge equal to the margin of victory. If the Vikings win, Schmitt will send a pound of cheese and a pound of fudge equal to the point difference.
I wouldn't trust the fudge, would you? tee hee hee. PACKER PRIDE for all... Lemondrop

|TCB - Contributing Writer for Packer Palace.|
We missed a couple more folks. My apologies again. This gig is the most fun I have as a writer, but it's also something that I can only do in my spare time. When I don't have any spare time, I can't do it. Please accept my apologies if you like reading this piece, and thanks again to the Packer Palace guys for giving me the space. Also there wasn't much to write about after the Fetid Finale in Philly. But we're back now, with the usual collection of questionable advice, ill founded observation, and with a bit of luck some good jokes. Onward and forward! The Packers are in the playoffs, and of course as everyone will tell you, anyone can win from here on in. Without a powerhouse team in the NFC, any team that gets on a little run and catches a few breaks could certainly make it to the big dance. It appears that the winner in the NFC earns the right to an ugly, John Woo style beatdown by the Steelers, but it's still worth a shot. Go Packers!
|"Packers win the last 2 road games and Minnesota comes to Lambeau in the early rounds of the playoffs with the Packers winning 28-20."|
|You know where we stand on our predictions, but what is this "Vikings by 83" stuff from last tuesday's speak-out spew-off??? You must have meant the year 2083? Heh heh eh, even Beer Scout agrees with that. I can see it, sometime in the far, far distant future, Packer fans will be sitting around chanting for the Vikings in their Superbowl quest, "Keep The Dream Alive, Go 0 for 5!" (thanks Brian). The 'Queens Suck, Go Pack!
God bless the Swedes! God bless Abba!
OH YEAH.. The Vikings revenge is near. Although this will be another close one, the Vikes will prevail!! SKOL VIKES AND HERE WE COME PHILLY!!!!
Friday, January 07, 2005
Hey Outraged in Ft. Worth, this is Chris in D/FW. I don't know where Vernon's is but let's hook up and kick the Queens' ass as a team. I live in Grand Prairie and watch games at my house. Hey Beerkid, would you give my e-mail address to Ft. Worth?
Much Thanks and GO PACK!!!!!!!
Listen to Randy & Tice and laugh your ass off!
O anyone who's concerned about playing the Vikings... Maybe you were rooting for the Jets over the Rams... I say BRING IT ON! There's no team I'd rather play. Carolina has too good a Defense, the Saints are unpredictable and on a hot streak, the Seahawks played us to OT last season and the Rams... well ok...I'd rather play the Rams.
I'm looking for the Pack to get Ahman back in the gameplan. He's been quiet over the second half of the season. If Bubba shows up and makes plays like he did in Chicago, the Pack can win by 17.
Key to the victory: Cover, Cover, Tackle, Tackle. Score on offense. Figure on needing at least 34 points... again. KX MAN in NYC
Anticipation. Is it Game time yet ???????????????????? I can hardly stand these slow ticking clocks in my house!! Hey Beer Kid.... Great Job on the Queens funny stuff btw! Keep 'em coming. I must check in here like 4 times a day to see whats NEW! (not kidding) Its my new "past-time stress-reliever"? I have all my Packeridiocyncrasies put in place...by the TV, just waiting. Dum da dum dum.... Tic toc tic toc-------- This is slower than my damn dialup! ROFL..... I just can't take it anymore! Good News tho... Fergie was at practice Wed. tho he is still listed as doubtful to play. Amazing recovery tho, shows ya what them Packer guys are all made of! Lemondrop
PS...Is Thursday nite too early to start "tailgating"???

Greetings Packer Nation!!! Well, once again the Packers stepped up and shafted the Bears! Noone comes to our house in week 2 and beats the mighty Pack...especially them! The defense stepped up a little although I believe we could've shut them out 34-0 considering they're the last in league on offense (I think). Craig Nall showed he could take control of the ball and score points after Favres' impressive show. The Bi-queens now have to be dealt a blow at Lambeau this Sunday. We cannot let our guard down in this game. They are not to be underestimated because they will be playing hard....like us! I believe it will again be a close game with the Pack on top. After that, we can beat an over-rated team like the Dirty-Birds at Atlanta. Favre showed no weakness this year in a dome and I don't believe this game will be any different. I see us competing on to Philadelphia or St. Louis in the NFC Championship and ekeing out with a field goal....again. I believe we the offense and defense to win it this year and head to Jacksonville. It will be in Florida where the mighty Pack will have to play the best game of their season. Given our talent level and the way the other NFC/AFC teams are playing, we have a pretty darn good shot!
Bless Green Bay and everybody that looks like us! Chris, D/FW, TX
Hey, Viqueen losers, the only way you get into the playoffs is by other teams losin. See you at Lambeau, bring your long underwear moss, you are going to need it!
hey packers are amazing: prediction packers beat the vikings in the playoffs for the third time....... 34-31 another close battle!!!!!! Packers go on and face the fal-cons.
I hate those putrid pecker checkers that are the fans on purplepride.org. I went on there and was banned from the site in two hours without saying one curse word. Unless the words "cheese curds" are banned in Minnesota?

Come to Papa, Heidi!
Did anybody notice the improved defense????????? Did anyone notice what team you were playing? Improved pride not defense. Vikings by 83.
I liked the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's columnist who wrote that the best QB in Soldier Field Sunday was Favre, the second best was Nall and the third best was (GB QB Coach) Darrell Bevell. Vikes are a persistant pain-in-the-ass, and I don't like the idea of a Division opponent in the first round, but who really wants to face a team as hot as the Saints? Besides, can you wish for an opponent with a better psychological frame of mind right now? Thanks, Randy, for setting the mood, I believe that Pack will follow through and finish the job!
By the way, where's "Me and Mr. Walker"? It's sudden departure leaves a void. Please pass along that I enjoy his clever writing and spot on analysis. Les E.
ooooh can you believe it?? Meeting the vi-queens for a third time in one season! I guess the third time wil be the charm to get it into their vulcan heads that we're the best! And it will be sooooo sweet-my brother is a vi-queen fan. I can't wait to give him a call afterward. Let's just play 'd' like we did Sunday, and we'll plaster em. Oh, and Mike, get a better coaching staff next year, yourself included! Trade in your play calls for some cajones instead! :) Also, condolences to the White family for their loss. Thankfully I'm confidant he's in heaven getting his just reward. God's sitting on the throne, telling him "Well done, thou good and faithful servant. Enter now into the kingdom of heaven" When we die, if we've lived our life for the Lord, we have no worries. God bless, Reggie! Also, prayers and condolences to the tsunami victims. Let's all help do what we can! Lady K, Packer Club of Hemet, So. Cal

My New Year's Dreams: 1. The Packers hire a real GM! 2. The real GM fires the entire defense coaching staff. How can anybody do worse? Last, that Reggie's Name be up in at Lambeau Field, for the playoff game! RomanPacker
Oh my achin' Cheesehead! I can not believe we gotta play them Vikings a 3rd time?? I wanna know who makes these charts! Its like the movie "Groundhogs Day" (over and over and over). So Pack fans- here we go again! Hoo rah and ya hoo... I know I'll lose my voice screaming at the TV like I did Christmas Eve, but, it's sooooooooooo worth it! The Bears game showed a promise of improving "D" ---did anyone notice that? 6 days till game time. Happy playoffs everyone.... Lemondrop
PS. If you ever happen to run over a mudduck...remember to use Reverse ! (lol)
Hey guys! I was watching the Philly game the other night....that qb Blake actually has a good arm, problem is he'll never come in to play full time w/McNabb at the reins. Maybe someone in the Packer organization should consider giving him a second look to come in behind Favre--we don't need a qb out of college that has no NFL experience-we need someone who is used to the hype, and just wants to come in and learn from the best! Besides, college qb's always want to come right in and just take over...that won't happen while Favre is in town. We don't want no cocky lil momma's boy, so we should get someone who's already been in the league for a few. I think Blake willl be a good consideration. He'd be ready to go for it when Favre does retire(may that not be for a long while yet) At the rate he's going in Philly, he'll just round out his career as a bench warmer and a fill in on photo days. : ) GO PACK! Lady K Packer Club of Hemet, (So. Cal)
My Prayers and thoughts to the White Family from my familia here in fort worth texas and my packer backers worldwide RIP REGGIE MAN I REMEMBER SEEING YOU AT THE AGE OF 16 WINNING THAT SUPER BOWL TEARS CAME DOWN MY EYES ON SUNDAY BUT NOT SADNESS BUT HAPPINESS SAY HELLO TO ALL OUR FAMILIES UP THERE AND TELL VINCE HELLO AND THANKS MAN FOR CHEERING ME UP DURING ONE OF MY MOST BEUATUFUL TIMES IN MY LIFE GOD BLESS THE 96,97 PACKERS WE WILL MISS YOU LORD MAY YOU LET OUR FRIEND IN FATHER Amen.
