Hey BeerKid... 

I’m looking for the audio of the Mel Knoke commercial saying “I feel the power”, that was on the different packer sites back in ’97. I use to have it but have lost it. I want to put it on my computer to torment all the rabid Viking fans at work. I live in northern Minnesota and am surrounded by them.

Could you help me locate this audio? Any help will be appreciated.

Hey Pearl,

Nothing came up easily during my internet searches, so all I can do is ask any of you out there reading this if you have come across Mel Knoke's commericial or happen to have it on your computer to please email it in to Packer Palace and we'll contact Pearl and make her day and annoy some Vikqueen fans at the same time.

Man o man, the Packers looked like crap.  They lose 17 - 48 to the Bengals... Another big loss on the road during the pre-season.  Easy to discount, but is it a harbringer of road games to come or is McCarthy & Company playing possum this preseason.  Probably the former... Young teams have trouble on the road.  At this rate, the Packers only road win will be against the Bears at the end of the year... heh heheh heh eh.

Beerkid:  Just some observations...

Al Harris is the best shut-down corner in all of football.

Charles Woodson is the most overpaid, overrated corner in all of football.

Someone needs to remind Nick Barnett that when you are down by 27 points, and you make a stop for no gain, to leave the Samurai Sword in its sheath.

Aaron Rogers not only looks like a porn star with that silly 8th grade mustache, but he also throws like one.

How many times this year are we going to see the ball slip out of Brett's hand only to have him look around for the ball like a bobbing head doll with a bad spring?

Like I told you two weeks ago, Ahman is dancing with the stars.

Jennings is only a rookie, but he has already inherited the grin of Antonio Freeman when he drops the ball. GOD I HATE THAT!!!! Be good.

RealStuff Sports

Hey BeerKid.......... I've got it figured out!!!! McCarthy is telling his team to play shitty games this preseason, so along with last years record, teams will figure that they can just pretty much roll their helmet on the field and win. Then the Packers' are going to sneak up on all these teams and bushwhack them!!!! Yeah....that's what they're doing....Yep, that must be it!!!!

Long Live the Pack!!!!

if we going to win the north we got to win the 1st 3 games

last nite was U G L Y but its pre season and its on tape so you can only hope they watch and sort out the mistakes


Last time seen 2004, brother of the d-line that also went missing, last seen 1997.

Nice... However, it was the Packers who got "Titanic'd" last night on ESPN!

2 Questions For Joe... 

Fellow cheesehead and friend Radiochel got the chance to hang out and ask Joe Theisman of ESPN's Monday Night Football 2 questions on Packer QB Brett Favre.  Lucky for us at Packer Palace she sent us an audio clip of her short interview. 

2 Questions For Joe on Brett by Radiochel

It's only a minute long and Joe does all the talking, but it's worth checking out.  As Radiochel suggested, enjoy!

BeerKid - Still Pack 4 Life!

Speak Out Spew Off...

It's amazing how an injury to your starting FB William Henderson starts a chain reaction that makes an organization do crazy things, like trying to put Samkon Gado in that role as a replacement, instead of actually trying to acquire another FB.  After hearing Chris Havel on the radio mention that backup LB Kurt Campbell blew Gado up in the whole (instead of the usual vice-versa) it looks like the Packers were lucky that Samkon didn't get hurt during this gawd-awful experiment.

Another failed draft pick from the GM Mike Sherman era is gone, good riddance to BJ Sander who never could punt consistantly enough or well enough to come anywhere near the flippin' 3rd round pick that was wasted on him.  Same for DB Joey Thomas and DT Donnell Washington, what a waste of 3 3rd round picks.  We could have used one of those 3rd rounders for the actual 1st rounder that year, CB Ahmad Carroll. 

With regards to Ahmad Carroll, he's a decent CB who can run with anybody, now if he could just keep his hands off the opponet's jersey (and apparently blows below the belt) he's going to work out well as the 5th or 6th DB on the Packer defense.

We'll see how LG Jason Spitz and RG Tony Moll hold up this week against the Bengals, they are truly the only suspect spots on the team.  Last year, who-ever got promoted in the preseason to starting Guards, failed miserably the following week, forcing ex-Coach Mike Sherman to play musical chairs right up until the final week before the start of the season, which was the week that freslhly signed TE Bubba Franks showed up.  This year if the Packers can get the OL to play moderately well, and Bubba has been in camp all summer, so they now can get a chance to jell into a productive unit and if that happens, the Packers offense will be just fine.

And to Lemondrop, it's still "fabled Wisconsin" from my far away point of view...

BeerKid - Still Pack 4 Life!


What a difference a week makes! Both sides of the ball played inspired. Hope springs eternal for Packer fans, at this point Chargers game...Packers go 6-10, Falcons game...Packers go 10-6 and win the division. Hawk playing without thinking, Watching Jennings I can't remember that guy we traded to Denver, even the DB's looked better. If Mike and his staff can "coach-up" the young guys like this week in and week out...look out!


Good move Thompson (for a change); the PACKERS released B.J. Sander. What a wasted draft pick he turned out to be. Good riddens "Blow Job"... Watch the F'n vi-queens pick his sorry ass up.

Hey BeerKid, Some thoughts for Packerland. I hope they get something done with Al Harris. You get a player that plays well, stays healthy and is a good example, you don't get cute and fuck around with it. You take care of your good soldiers!!! I'm sure that they've told Harris that if he outplays Woodson this year, that they will outpay him over Woodson too. It's been too quiet about his contract.

That said I think the contracts need some adjustments, so there's money in them to be earned. These signing bonuses are bad. If I'm correct, a talented player can sign a big contract, collect all the signing bonus, get thown out of town half way through the contract and if he has a few suitors that want to give him another chance........... bingo, another big contract and more signing bonus money. Some of these players keep getting chances and can keep piling up signing bonuses without making it through a contract.

Also, I agree with you BeerKid that the equipment the players wear today are top notch, I still say........... save the speed tracks for race cars and track stars. Slow the track down for the turns and collisions of demolition cars and football stars. There needs to be some give in football, the ground or the knees???? Whoooops, is that another player done for the year with a torn ACL.................

Long Live the Pack!!!!

offensive line we need

We attended the Falcons game last weekend in God's Country. I saw a helluva lot better football from the Pack than I (an eternal optimist) expected. Monday against Cincinnati will tell me what type of team we will have.I just finished watching the Bears LOSE to the CARDINALS at HOME. Rex Grossman (the greatest 8 game over 3 year starter in the history of the NFL) did not do anything special (13 of 20 for 118 yds....or something), not to mention drive the mighty Bears offense to 6 (six) points over 2 and a half quarters. I know, you're saying the Cardinals have a GREAT defense; er, no wait, that's supposed to be the Bears. Oh yeah, the Cardinal offense w/Matt Leinart CARVED up the FIRST team Bears defense like a cagy veteran.

My in Chicago, game 1 to me is CRUCIAL to the Pack getting off to a great start.I've seen the Viqueens...not yet there; and have yet to see the mighty Lions in preseason play.....but feel good about the Pack in the NFC North.NOTHING beats a game at Lambeau with a tailgate party at Favre's Steakhouse at a cost of $25 w/all the beer you can drink! The Bears Still Suck,

Packer Palace Predicts... 

Saturday, August 12, 2006 -With the smoke from the burnt toast that was the last years Green Bay Packers football season still lingering and swirling around us.  With the sweat of uncertainity that surrounded every offseason move that GM Ted Thompson made staining our favorite Packer gear.  Comes slowly the realization that this 2006 Green Bay Packers may not be all that bad of a team after all.  We seem to have a coach who can coach and present a little common sense toughness, but can he coach when the Packers are down by 5 points with 55 seconds left and 60 yards to go and Brett alreay having thrown 2 int's?  That will be his test, we expect he's going to see situations like that quite often this year. 

Though the fog is heavy around the Packers chances this year, and injuries can nose-dive any season down the porcelin god-bowl rather quickly like last year, we can still peer around the edges of Time's to come and we like the path we see clearing for the Packers.  With the easy schedule (winnable games like Bears, Saints, @Lions, @Eagles, Rams, Cardinals, @Bills, Jets, @49ers, Lions, Vikings), Brett Favre having an average-type year, the Packers defense living up to it's above-average potential, the Packers can win 9 games this year.  Now will the untested interior offensive line hold up?  Will someone compliment Donald Driver and emerge as dependable 2nd and 3rd WR's?  Will the new Offensive Schemes be effective in protecting Brett by having a strong Running Game?  Why the answer is "Yes!". 

 Packers   9-7
     Bears   9-7
      Lions   6-10
   Vikings   3-13


It's 9-7 and the NFC North Division Crown.  Not only will the Packers beat the Bears on opening day in Green Bay, they will also be able to go down to Chi-town and win the last game of the year to pull even with the Bears and take the division title by tie-breaker.  Ultimately everything rides on Brett Favre's arm and decision making skills this year.  If he has the normal average year we expect out of him, the Packers can easily win 9 games in weak division with an easy schedule and a semi-strong defense.  As to the Playoffs?  Well anything can happen once you make the Playoffs.

Tell us where we're wrong:

Update: Thursday August 24th - Not much more to add at this point, 9-7 for the Packers and NFC North Division Crown.  The only real problem spots are the interior of the offensive line and the 2nd and 3rd wide receivers.  We'll just see how that developes out of the preseason and into the regular season opener against the Bears.

BeerKid - Still Pack 4 Life!


I cant tell you you're wrong. I think you right on the money. And if I am wrong, at least I can say I went down with the team. Something you wont see in the rest of the NFC North Teams!

Keep up the good work! Love the shorts and the logo's!


Me thinks ya just mite be rite!


hey guys,are we still talking about the packers here? the green bay packers? you must not be saying they'll have success. Try to remember them, it will come to you eventually.

Big Ern

Update: Wednesday August 16th - Now we're starting to have some fun.  We've got one prediction where it's more likely for the Lions to lose 17 games before the Packers win the NFC North at our predicted tie-breaker over da' Bears at 9-7.  We got one guy (alleged Vikqueen fan) who slammed us for our lack of common sense by himself stealing the Dr.Pepper's 23 theme.  Yo Dude!  Where was your signed rational thought-out prediction for the NFC North this year?  I must have missed it, but you still have a chance to go on record before the first regular season game begins.

After watching the biggest and fastest players in the world run around and try to destroy each other week after week I don't if I could ever go back to anything that would affect that performance.  It's not just the surface of the field, it's the incredible equipment that each player gets to where.  You never used to be able to throw your body around in the old days and remain un-injured, now the players can throw themselves around with minor repercussions, so they do.  With the way the expected salary cap is to rise to the 150-180 million dollar range, we should be able to finally see expanded rosters to help cover injuries and maybe even the 18 game regular season schedule which will create more late-season injuries.  Some fun...

BeerKid - Still Pack 4 Life!


While I would thoroughly enjoy seeing our purple neighbors to the west get whooped 13 times, I think that is unrealistic. 9 losses would satisfy me.... as long as their wins don't include games with the GBP.


You are NOT wrong ,let's kick some ass!!

I hope you're right, but the Charger game didn't do much to boost my confidence. I hate the Vikes but don't think they'll suck as much as you imagine. I agree, the entire division is pretty week and up for grabs.

Bears  10-6
Lions  7-9
Pack  6-10
Vikes  6-10
I hope I'm wrong.

Dave / St. Louis

Beer Kid: With that "new" offensive line, the Pack will not be back this year. Ahman Green is done, and Brett is in the twilight of his career. With no 2nd receiver, and no protection, he will look like he did last year - heaving the ball downfield with hope and desperation. Ahman Green will not hit the small holes that are opened up. He will take the handoff and dance around looking for one. Remember Brockington, Franco Harris, Chuck Foreman, Emmitt Smith - all dancers. Then you have the kicking game. How many close games in the NFL are won and lost on field-goals? The Pack will lose at least three games due to their kicking game. In addition the young head coach will cost the team at least two losses. To pin our hopes on a rookie linebacker and a washed-up, overrated nickel-back are too much. Next year Rogers will be in at quarterback and another long season will be upon us.

Go Pack in 2008.

I think that it is more likely that the Lions will go 0-17. (Yes, an extra loss.)

I see the following:

Viqueens 9-7
Bears 8-8
Packers 7-9
Lions 6-10

See you in Nov... Lets kick the Patsies ass

A guy from New Hampshire

A few more thoughts BeerKid........ Looking at all these injuries now, I think the NFL needs to take the top brass to a demolition derby. Here they crash into one another (just like football) and unlike the NFL, they aren't looking to make faster surfaces and faster cars. They water down the track before their heats so the cars can't get going too fast and someone gets themselves killed. The NFL teams just love finding bigger, faster players and making the fields surfaces faster and with more grip. The players are tearing up knees because the surfaces have no give anymore. Instead they keep making new rules. You can only hit a QB now from the waist to the chest, if a running back gets by you there's only the shirt to grab and that's a horse collar if done wrong. Some of these tolerances are getting pretty small. Hard to aim with players pushing and shoving. Maybe they need to consider making these fields a little more uniform and a little slicker. They used to play with leather helmets, no face masks. Two more things...... Why with Favre's experience wouldn't you have him making more calls offensively (like Manning). Second, don't you find it interesting that a couple members of the new coaching staff are fired coaches of Sherman's. I'm still worried about this group, seeing as none of them has done anything special and Shottenheimer (couldn't he do better). I guess they are there now and will be judged in 3-4 years.... hope we didn't waste more time. Thanks.

Long Live the Pack!!!!

Hello Packerland from the UK. Pack to win NFC North 2006

Phil A.

The NFC north is a terrible division, Alex Smith looked like a god against the bears and their offense will again be mediocre at best. The Viking Have Lost T. Williams, C. Greenway, and probably Robinson. They have a new head coach who never called a single play at Philly, they have no stars, an unproven RB, terrible recievers, a decent O-line and Defense and an average QB. The Lions have a few flashy players, and I think that Marinelli is the best of the new coaches in the North, but their defense is young, their o-line is shaky, and they are unsettled at the QB position. If the packers would have hired Bates and went after Hutch then I would say we would coast to another NFC north title, but we didnt. We got an unproven head coach with no charisma, we changed our whole blocking philosphy, and we changed D coordinators for the fourth year in a row. The Packers need to get rid of Thompson and get someone who knows that a team can't solely survive on getting a lot of players in the draft and waiting for them to pan out. The Packers can be a good team this year, they have a weak schedule, and a lot of "talent", but McCarthy needs to be like Lovie Smith and give the team some goals like making the playoffs and smoking the bears. My Predictions are:

Bears: 9-7
Lions: 6-10
Packers: 6-10
Vikings: 5-11

I still am holding out hope, but reality keeps telling me to go against what Im hoping for...


I am with ya baby

Big Oly 74

Update: Sunday August 13th - Let me explain in a little more depth why we see all this chaos and upset for the NFC North Division this year. (while fanning all the smoke out of the living room)  The Bears locker room turmoil and a lack of QB presence will cost them games (ex. The 2 against the Pack) this year and some of those Lions wins will come late in the year with newly promoted head coach Mike Martz running the show.  And the Vikings?  Their new head coach Brad Childress and assistant coaching staff is much, much lamer than anyone else's in the NFC North, their decrepit QB is more fragile and uninspiring than any QB you can find in the NFC North (even in Chicago, or the recently departed Joey Harrington), and some team each year has to end up as the "burnt-toast" team that way under-performs (like the Pack last year) due to injuries, bad coaching, off-field problems, team leaving town rumors, and my pick this year is that the Vikings will fill that role, hence, 3 wins for the Vikes (hey, if you look closely I left it open that the Pack will lose in the Humpty-Dome this year).  Besides, last year we picked the Pack to have 11 wins, they ended up with 4 wins, meaning we missed by 7, and I'm not saying that's our margin of error for this year's predictions or anything, but... And I'm not saying that we're from Western Wisconsin and our passion for the Vikqueens losing takes a close 2nd to the Packers winning in grand feelings for the day, but...

BeerKid - Still Pack 4 Life!

Vikings 3-13??? What are you guys smoking??? The Vikes will have another winning season and will have a shot at winning the North.

The packers are going 9-7/10-6 easily. They have a bad ass defense finally and anybody who saw the bears play the 49ers can see that their offense looked terrible and their defense about the same as last year. If the packers can rush the ball and jennings can become a solid #2 this year then I can easily see us winning the division.

You're not... right on with the 9-7 this season.

I hate the Vikings more than I hate George Bush, wait a minute, no I don't, but the Vikings 3 and 13? That's not realistic.

I wouldn't count the Lions just yet remember who's calling that Offense.

Now you know I would Never argue with you, BK !


After watching the San Diego game I have significant doubts we are going to take any steps forward. Favre or Rodgers are not going to get a chance to throw the ball with the rush they are facing. We have problems in the trenches. O-line and D-line were non existent and San Diego's lines are not the best in the league.

Finally, Coach M had that deer in the head lights look. The only good thing was the young linebackers play


Packers might start slow due to the relative youth of the team but will end the season with a surge that will carry them past the Bears and deep into the playoffs. 9-7 with 5 losses coming in the first 8 games.

Not so much wrong as incredibly optimistic, but that is the essence of a Packer fan. Based upon the first pre-season game, which essentially tells us nothing of the regular season, I hope, the Packers have a ton of work to do with the OL and DB's. Bright spots...Favre not coming out after 10 plays, wanting to do something positive and taking the team down the field however, without a score. Also I can easily see Barnett at the SAM, Hodge in the MIKE and Hawk at Will, and Barnett is just going to have to like it. Nick had a bajillion tackles last year, but only 6 of them were for a loss, give Hodge and Hawk 3 years and Barnett will look average at best.



Here's where you're wrong!
Packers 14-2
Lions 9-7
Bears 4-12
Vikings 1-15

Don't forget that Packers.Com's Multimedia page has the audio for the post-game interviews from last Saturday night's 38-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons with Coach Mike McCarthy, LB A.J. Hawk, S Tyrone Culver, G Tony Moll, WR Greg Jennings, CB Charles Woodson and several other players.

I also subscribed to NFL.Com's Field Pass for radio coverage for any NFL Team.  Living outside of fabled Wisconsin I really appreciate that on game day it's 2 hours of pre-game Packer Talk, you also get up to 3 hrs of post-game shows and interviews which can be accessed along with the radio broadcast from Wayne Larrivee and Larry McCarren in the archives.  It's always good to hear Packer Broadcasters talking about the Packers and not some of the other yahoo's that the TV Networks can dredge up.

Packer radio announcer Larry McCarren on Packer Pregame Radio before the Packer-Charger game in regards to the Packers new offensive scheme being implemented by new head coach Mike McCarthy.

Someone forgot to point out that "proven 1000 times" didn't seem to inspire a Packer Offense that garnered only 11 first downs in saturday night's 17-3 opening pre-season loss against the San Diego Chargers.

Quote Of The Day... 

"We're not going to take this team anywhere ever, this whole experience means too much to the fans. I think it's unique that it does. The training camp tradition at this place is pretty special."

Packers GM Ted Thompson on considering an arrangement in which the Packers would host a team one year and then travel to that team's camp the following year.

If it was only for a few days, I bet the Packers could arrange it so that you would have just as many Packers fans at the other teams training camp for those days as you would anywhere in wisconsin.

Remembering Reggie White


Hey BeerKid,

I'd like to add my two cents before they induct Reggie into the Hall of Fame, Saturday. I've read all the stuff players, announcers, etc. have had to say about him. What they missed is the fact that he changed the game of football. He was so dominating that they started allowing offesive lineman to block differently. One game I watched, the team seemed to have decided to leave the tackle one on one with Reggie most of the time. Reggie was going around him at will. They did call several holding penalties on him, but they let alot go....... Lets face it, the ref can't be throwing a flag every other play. You'd never get the game done. He's probably the first one that the refs started looking away, when the O-linemen would start hooking with their arm around him....... which is now fully allowed.

Deacon Jones and those boys could head slap the O-linemen til they couldn't see straight and the O-linemen couldn't use their hands blocking like they can now.....they weren't in his class!!!!!! He tossed 300 lb. linemen around like kids!!!!!! You couldn't run his side unless you stayed 5 yards away from where he was. If you had four Reggies' to line up, the offense couldn't function...... you'd need eight O-linemen to try and block them. The guy was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The guy was double and triple teamed 3/4 of the time, was held merclessly, and still was dominant!!!!!!!


Long Live the Pack!!!!


The leader can never close the gap between himself and the group.  If he does, he is no longer what he must be.  He must walk a tightrope between the consent he must win and the control he must exert.

Overheard In Training Camps This Week...

  • Our offensive line was so good that even our backs couldn't get through it.

  • Football is a game of inches, and that's how some teams move the ball.

  • As John Madden says, "If you see a defensive line with a lot of dirt on their backs, they've had a bad day."

  • Our linebacker is so strong he can pitch horseshoes while they're still on the horse.

  • We play in a dome stadium. We always prefer to kick with the air-conditioning at our backs.

  • Football is a game when 22 big, strong players run around like crazy for two hours while 50,000 people who really need the exercise sit in the stands and watch them.

  • The coach says his favorite play is the one where one of our players pitches the ball back to the official after he has scored a touchdown.

  • Pro linemen are so huge that it takes just four of them to make a dozen.

  • Our players have a lot on the ball. Unfortunately, it's never their hands.

  • We were in a really tough game. Our quarterback started praying, and we heard a distant voice say, "Please don't include me in this."

  • The place kicker missed his attempt at a field goal. He was so angry, he went to kick himself and missed again.

  • They call it their nickel defense, because that's what it's worth.

  • I knew that he was on steroids. His I.Q. and neck size were the same number.

  • Old quarterbacks never die. They just pass away.

  • We have so many players on the disabled list the team bus can park in a handicapped space.

  • This team employs their famous "Doughnut Defense" the one with the big hole in the middle.
