Listen Coach, just because the Fat Lady is singing, doesn't mean it's over. First of all, she's really not that fat, and technically, we can claim she's no lady, and as for her singing, well...
Update: The Fat Lady has been singing for hours, but the Green Bay Packers finish their season at 8 - 8 with an ass-whooping of the Chicago Bears on News Years Eve, returning an earlier favor by embarrassing Duh Bears on their home field with the final score of 26 - 7. Happy New Year!

Did you hear that Dick Clark has asked the Vikqueens WR Troy Williamson to attend this years festivities in Times Square?
Apparently, they need help from someone experienced in "dropping the ball"!

|Playoffs??? The Packers have a chance at the 6th seed for the NFC Conference Playoffs? Who would have guessed that this was coming down the road after the 1-4 start, after the blow-out losses to Chicago Bears, New England Patriots and New York Jets, after games that could have been won against the St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks and even the New Orleans Saints. Who could have guessed that after all that, the Green Bay Packers are sitting this close to making the playoffs. |
The 5 teams that are 7-8 going in to week 17 are all playing on the road. They include the Packers, Rams, New York Giants, Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons. The easiest playoff scenario for the Packers, is to win in Chicago, they must have the Giants lose in Washington, and have the Rams lose in Minnesota. The Packers can qualify if they finish in 3-way ties with any of the other teams, excluding the Giants.
The Packers are in if:
Packers Win, Giants Lose, Rams Lose
Packers Win, Giants Lose, Panthers Win
Packers Win, Giants Lose, Falcons Win
So this football weekend starts on Saturday night with the NY Giants at the Washington Redskins, so root for the 'Skins, root against G'ints. The Packers game on Sunday against the Bears has been moved to the NBC Prime Time game that night. The TV gods are betting that it's going to come down to the Packers win and their in, or worst case, they get to highlight Brett Favre's last game (of this year) against a Bears team who's only motivation is that they hate the Packers, otherwise Da' Bears have nothing to play for.
One last note... It's damn near impossible to root for the Vikings, even to beat the Rams this sunday... so to straddle a technicality I'm going to root against the Rams and just ignore the Vikqueens.
So put on your Green N Gold colored glasses, and start drinking the Packer Kool-aid (mine has Vodka in it) 'cuz the Packers are going to the Playoffs. Ho Ho Ho Go Pack Go!

Quoth BIG ERN, It's only 11 other dudes on the other side of the ball and it aint the size of the dog in tha fight it's the size of the fight in our dogs! They still suck! Lets hand thier ass's to 'em!!!
THE BEARS STILL SUCK!!
BIG ERN said so!!!!!!!!
Hey BK....We've got the late show Sunday, should make for a neat NY's Eve. They should know what's needed for the playoffs by that time. Can't believe there's playoff talk. Probably won't go too far, unless teams like the Loins and Cardinals are in the playoffs too, since the Pack haven't actually beaten a winning team. Sure, everyone is all Rah! Rah! about the Pack, but we've seen what good teams like the Jets and Pats can do to them. But they've improved this year. Next year I hope Favre announces his fairwell tour, I'd get on board with that. Re-sign Green for middle money and keep contract to two years or less each time (if needed). He misses too many cutbacks and runs too close to the line when he does.
Moss being shopped for a 3rd, ???. Pack should look into that after a nice long talk with him. Hope Jags takes Shotty-Baby with him to BC. Anyway, the Pack has a ways to go to get to SB level. Hope they keep getting good drafts and I'd personally would like MM to sit down and watch game tape of a lot of other teams from this season to improve himself. I'd like him to watch the Pats and how they bring a different team each week to the game.
Long Live the Pack!!!
Great Bears jokes! Thanks for the effort.
So all I want for christmas is a packer playoff birth. I think the easiest way to attain this christmas miracle would be for the giants to win and the packers to win, that would get the packers in due to the strength of schedule, and we wouldnt have to worry about the rams.
I think the rams will destroy the vikings, so our only hope is for the giants to win and the packers to pull off an upset in chicago!
a little premature on the prediction, the Packers have almost no chance to beat the Giants in any head to head tie-breakers, there's like 10 conditions that would have to be met, starting with the Lions beating the Cowboys, Cardinals beating the Chargers, 49ers beating the Broncos, and the Dolphins beating the Colts, and that's just for starters, it's easier on the brain just to root for the Giants to lose to the Redskins on Saturday night.
hey guys! I know that you guys are in losing denial but the bear jokes have to stop. you should be jealous of other teams.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!
Thanks for all the great Packer Stuff you bring us throughout the year!!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
|GO PACK, GO!!!|
As this season winds down--it’s amazing to think about the things that have happened, and where our favorite teams are right now. There was no way that it seemed the Packers could still be alive for a playoff berth, while the Vikings are going through the motions.
Amazingly enough--a Viking win could help the Packers...I guess we all know what that means.
|We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible.|
The Vikings still held faint playoff hopes
As they took Lambeau field last Thursday night
They were looking ahead to who'd they be playing
After beating the Packers that night
Those Packers weren't thinking of a playoff chance
But were focused on Minnesota’s Vikings
As they took the field in the cold and rain
Conditions that really were to Green Bay's liking
In what might have been Brett’s last home game
Just beating the Vikings would be enough
For despite winning their last two games
Green Bay knew they weren't all that tough
Brad Childress had benched brad Johnson
And Tarvaris Jackson was getting the start
Vikings fans were convinced he'd be the key
To restoring Minnesota’s fire and heart
Childress even came up with some wrinkles
Designed to help his rookie quarterback
Mostly he'd take the snap, make his drop
Count to five and then get sacked
The Packers ruined the debut of 'TJack'
Putting the Vikes' offense into reverse
And as poorly as green bay moved the ball
The Minnesota team was even worse
With the Vikes' postseason hopes in the gutter
They are just going to play out the string
Too bad they must face the St Louis rams
And all of the problems they bring
For the one thing the rams love doing most
Is the thing the Vikings can't stop
They won't waste much time trying to run
But will quickly put the football up top
By the time the Pack plays the Bears at Soldier Field
They'll know if any playoff chances remain
But after Chicago shut them out in the opener
Thoughts of revenge will be in each player's brain
The Bears haven't dominated as easily
in the games of the past couple of weeks
And a chance to close out by beating the Bears
Will provide the motivation that all coaches seek
The Vikings would have to stop the Ram's passes
If they were to have a chance in this game
Green Bay has outperformed expectations
This week may well turn out the same

|There is a Chicago Bear chasing a Packer Rabbit through the forest and they`re running and running and they stop because a genie appears. The genie says " if you two stop fighting and chasing each other i`ll give you each three wishes". They agree. |
The Chicago Bear wishes first for the biggest "package" of all the Chicago Bears in the whole forest. And His wish comes true. The Packer Rabbit then wishes for an unlimited supply of carrots. His wish is granted too. The Chicago Bear`s second wish is that all the Chicago Bears in the forest, except him, are female. Then the Packer Rabbit wishes for a motorcycle. The Chicago Bear`s last wish is that all the Chicago Bears fall madly in love with him.
The Packer Rabbit`s final wish is that the Chicago Bear becomes gay, and the Packer Rabbit jumps on his motorcycle and rides away.

Christmas comes early for the Packers. It helped quite a bit that the Vikings head coach Brad Childress started a raw rookie like Tavaris Jackson at QB, he ended up 10-20 for 50yds and 1 INT, I guess we got our wish that "his first start will be his worse start" and amid many mistakes the Packers were still able to win 9 - 7 on a late 4th quarter FG by Dave Rayner. My Christmas just got a whole lot merrier!
NFL.com has some great Packers Vikings Game Video Highlights that you can view through Real Player. The above link is head coach Mike McCarthy's post-game news conference, but you can see quarter by quarter highlights along with a mic'd on the field Brett Favre and even some post-game words from Vikqueens head coach Brad Childress from the video's menu.

What have I been saying all year?
BUBBA FRANKS IS THE WORST TIGHTEND IN THE NFL!
Now do you believe me?
No. I would hate to crucify Bubba Franks over one really, really bad game... and it would be easy too... but I'll say only this, bring in another TE either through the draft or free agency and let them beat Bubba out in training camp. Backup TE's David Martin or Donald Lee haven't been all that impressive either, nothing consistant beyond a catch here or there.
Holy crap, as I watched bubba stumble and waddle around the field all I could hear was the hillarious line "He looks like he's pullin' a plow with his laces tied together" I read on your site! What a bum! But how 'bout my man A.J?? and Kampman? puttin' foot-to-ass all night!! PLAYOFFS ANYONE?!
BIG ERN SAID SO!!!!!!!!!!
If anybody in the NFL needs Yoga or Ballet training it's Bubba, it can get really ugly when he catches the ball and spins around to go up field, there appears to be no balance... but for now, he is still the best TE on the team. Pro-Bowl bound DE Aaron Kampman and certainly at least Packer Rookie of the Year LB A.J. Hawk continue to harass and impress. Maybe D-Coordinator Bob Sanders really deserves to stay...
6 and 9 .... Queens.
7 and 8 .... Packers.
HOW GOOD is that!
Told you there IS a Santa.
BK, I know your busy and we are pests, but we just Swept the Queens this year !
HELL NO - BRETT CAN'T GO!
Brett Favre likes to play that "sandlot" style of football, where the WR is running 15 yd hitch play, but because this WR gets a big jump on the covering DB, Brett expects this WR to "go long - you got him beat" and wings the ball deep expecting the WR to adjust and follow through by going deep... As frustrating as the INT's are, I'm not sure I'm ready for Brett to play QB any other way, ummm to re-phrase that, Brett can play anyway he wants as long as the Packers win.
i notice that there is no bears stuff anymore. its about time you guys stopped.
One of the funniest things I've heard this year, was Coach Chilly (although he looks a LOT more like Monty Burns from the Simpsons) talking today in the press conference about MN/s "Kick Ass" offense.....too bad it's the VIKINGS' ass that it kicks !!!
When Darren Sharper and the rest of the Vikqueens finally showed up to celebrate with Fred Smoot, the Beer started pouring down on all of them... Have a Lambeau 40 on us!

Remembering Don Hutson...
Here's an old story by Jim Culberson published back in 1945 by the Portsmouth N.H. Herald the friday after Don Hutson and the Green Bay Packers came to Boston to play the Yanks. Yes, you read that right, the Green Bay Packers ended up beating the Boston Yanks that preceding Sunday 28-0.
Don Hutson lead the Packers in scoring and TD's for 11 straight seasons from 1935-1945, he lead the NFL in scoring 5 straight years from 1940-44, and ended up with a total of 105 career TD's for the Blue N Gold Bombers from Green Bay.

|So lame-o QB Brad Johnson has been sat down for rookie Tavaris Jackson who only a few weeks ago was running the Vikings scout team, that's to say, he wasn't really developing by practicing with the team, he was practicing against his team. Now, he gets to play the Packers at Lambeau field for his first NFL start. The defense better smack him around some, and make his first start his worse start. That would bring some holiday cheer to my house. GO PACK!!!|
Don't worry, we're still around here someplace, just running on a tight schedule this Xmas season, and this week we get one of those lame "let's have NFL Football on Thursday night" scams... I'll be working the 1st hour of the game. Plus some delays were just going to happen after recovering Monday from the win of the Lions and the added bonus of having an un-official office party (at the office) to attend on Tuesday night! Carne Asada and Grilled Chicken for everyone! Merry Christmas!

Wednesday and no Vikings cartoon? What, me worry.
C'mon BK...its the Pack vs. Vikings tommorrow nite.
Hello? Are you OK?
Worried about ya,
Packer Ponchos are usually available at Kobe's Swap Meet in San Diego at the Sports Arena. Best of luck,
Hey Beerkid! Ive ony seen these for sale south of the border. Youll find em in TJ, but I can guarantee its not NFL officailly licensed product. Viva Los Packers!!!!
Oh, since I'm writing BeerKid, I'd like to weigh in my two cents on the KGB dilemma that thye're tossing around now. I think it's fairly simple. You honor the contract he signed. You move him back into the situation you signed him into it (as obviously he's not an every down player!!!). So you give him next year to once agian excell at pressuring and sacking the QB the way he was expected when you signed him (double digit sacks and some decent pressure). Now you've put him back to a place where you can reasonable expect to know what he should produce according to past numbers. And you let his play decide for you, what you have, and then, what you do in 2008. Just simply let him prove his worth. It'll be in the film. Just like assigning a value to your cornerback that covers the top receiver week in and week out, and doing a decent job in doing so. You have 64+ DBs in the league to help you make a judgement call....... Assign it a number and pay it. Play'em straight up, and you'll have some pull when your telling a player you want to reduce their contract, cause you can't arugue with fair!!!!!!
Long Live the Pack!!!
You know the last 5 minutes of that game was so rah...rah!!, that I almost forgot about how inept these two teams looked for 55 minutes!!!!!! The WTF play came on the third play this week vs. the second last week. 3rd and 10 and the two receivers on the right both run 5 yard button hooks....WTF!!!!! Jenkins is a huge improvement over KGB on early downs as I thought he'd be. Been watching KGB for about 5 weeks now, on plays here and there, and usually he was dancing with the tackle. The play calling is a little better these days. I liked the shovel pass last week even though it didn't work. But the fact is you have to run when you should pass sometimnes and visa-versa. The media and fans will roast you when they don't work, but you have to stick with it. I personally like the screen around the 5-10 yard line. Then mix in some off-tackles, traps, draws, etc. here and there, with your run and pass plays, and you should stay unpredictable. I'd like to see how a game would turn out if they rolled dice and called the play that corresponds to the number rolled on a list. The defense would have no idea what to expect, but you'd need to be able to exicute decently. It's good to win one. And here I was hoping that I could get tickets to a Packer game and they'd pay me, the way it was going for awhile.
Long Live the Pack!!!
Packers Verses Vikings...
In September when this season started
Circles were drawn around this game
It figured to be a significant one
And it is though the reason's not the same
With both teams tied at six and eight
And amazingly alive in the playoff chase
The winner can keep faint hope in hand
While the loser will be knocked from the race
After losing four games in a row
The Vikes had won two of the last three
And facing the jets in the Metrodome
Looked as big a gift as there could be
Getting themselves ready for a playoff run
The Vikes planned to handily win this game
Too bad for them that New York’s Jets
Were feeling pretty much the same
Those New York Jets followed the blueprint
Drawn up by the Pats some weeks ago
"don't spend too much time trying to run-
Use short passes and down the field you'll go"
So like fighter planes the Jets came in
And shot the Vikes' defense full of holes
As Chad Pennington had himself a career game
With Smoot being owned by Lavernanues Coles
Chet Taylor couldn't get his game going
While the jets managed run well enough
For once it wasn't the Vikings' defense
Getting kudos for every run they stuffed
Brad Johnson was forced to win the game
And we know how well that plan would work out
As coach Childress gave in to the crowd
And rolled Tarvarius Jackson out
The rookie did manage to move the ball
And even threw a pass that turned into a score
Although he also tossed an interception
This week he'll start- closing Brad Johnson’s door
The Packers were coming off a big win for them
As they had sent the Forty-Niners to defeat
And since it seemed they'd just play out the season
Any chance to win was looking pretty sweet
Then the lions came to visit Lambeau
On a clear and cold mid-December day
Providing the chance for packers' fans
To see some classic cold-weather play
Winning at home hasn't been the Packers' forte
As they'd lost all but one game at Lambeau field
Every single visitor but Arizona’s cardinals
Had forced the green bay team to yield
Thank goodness for those Detroit lions
And for the fact that they aren't very good
For as they missed out on a chance to beat the pack
If they taken advantage like they should
Brett didn't have one of his best games
Though he saw another Dan Marino record fall
Without blocking and with no open receivers
Thrice the threw the Detroit team the ball
For once the Packers' defensive team
Stepped up and were the heroes of the day
Crushing the life from the Lions' offense
And winning their battles almost every play
With the defenses playing extremely hard
Neither team could get the passing game on track
It was two scores that turned the game
When scored by Green Bay's backup running back
Then the stars started falling together
With combos of other teams' losses and wins
Somehow someway the playoff candle is still lit
And that talk is starting once again
This week these teams meet for the second time
With not much more than bragging rights at stake
But to think that will affect the games' intensity
Would be nothing less than a tragic mistake
Amazingly these teams are very similar
With neither team being able to defense a pass
Unless the pass rush get to the quarterback
Knocking him flat on the grass
Too bad for brad Childress' team
That their pass rush seems to have gone astray
While there is quite a resurgence
Of the defensive line in green bay
Both teams have good run defenses
And their backs are better than most
And if either team lets receivers run free
The pass defense will be toast
Brett Favre will face a second-round rookie
In the matchup the will be the key to the game
Tarvarious Jackson is the two hundred first other q-b
To start while green bay's has been the same
In this week before Christmas day
Good wishes and generosity will abound
But it will start Friday at Lambeau field
After the Vikings will have been beat down....
|Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.|

Hey BeerKid..... You see KGB fall off the RB on the second play of the game. You see Jenkins do a bull rush on the next series, for a QB pressure. Too bad they waited til "after" they were eliminated from the playoffs to try new things.........
Long Live the Pack!!!
Yeah, the Packers hinted they would do something like this and they had to immediately after KGB's missed tackle right off the bat. It worked well with Cullen Jenkins playing that run-stuffing role and he got to move over to DT for pass-rushing plays. Technically the Pack are not eliminated from the playoffs... it's just felt that way all year long.
In regards to our 2006 Packer Palace Predicts, sure it looks like we're wrong, but it's our policy with our predictions to put them down in print before the 1st pre-season game is played, and seeing that you didn't bother to even sign your "your wrong" message, makes it more unlikely that you put down your predictions so I'm not sure what you want us to say - 'cept "whatever".
Hi Beer Kid,
We did it again on Click the Can. The Green Bay Packer fans did it again. We helped with the hunger relief this year AGAIN. I wrote an e-mail to Campbell's and asked them, when we get to see our team on their commercials. If any one else would like to e-mail them and ask the same question, I went on their home page web site

and clicked contact us. Be nice and thanks for another great year of click the can. GO PACK GO!!!
Thanks again BK,
Lee - Saint Marys, GA
Hi Lee, I saw (thanks to Coach Carl) that the Packers Vote came up just short of breaking 1 million. Go Packers!
Big wins by both teams last week! Now the question will be -- can they do it again?
Packers Verses Vikings...
Just as the Vikes were beginning to right themselves
The Lions appeared much like a gift from the heavens
They helped the Vikes by just dropping the ball
And allowing Minnesota to turn mistakes into "sevens"
Since they were up by twenty by the halftime break
Minnesota's team prematurely relaxed
Too bad the lions were so totally inept
They couldn't complete their attempted comeback
This week the Jets come to the Metrodome
Bringing a team that's had both ups and downs
Looking great against the Pack, Pats, and Bears
Then letting Buffalo push them around
The Jets say they're going to run on the Vikes
Something most teams are unable to do
But New York’s line thinks they can handle that line
And open the holes for their back to run through
Whether those brave predictions will be fulfilled
Is something that will just have to be shown
But in fact the real key to this football game
Is how many pass coverage’s the Vikes’ DB’s will have blown
The balloon holding up the Vikes' playoff chances
Should be shot down in flames by the Jets.
For three weeks in a row they'd lost badly
And the Packers' coaches and players were reeling
Who could have blamed them if gloom and depression
Were the main things that this team was feeling
But Mike McCarthy somehow rallied his team
And they repaid him by playing quite well
Taking control of the Niners game early
And keeping them down 'til the game's closing bell
This week the Lions visit Lambeau field
Where the packers are a mere one and five
Brett's home record against them is fourteen and oh
It's for number fifteen the Packers will strive
Another win would do well for this young team
Who have so often felt the sting of shortcomings
To see some success after all their hard work
Might give a glimpse of the team they're becoming
With Kevin Jones out Detroit’s run game is weak
And the Packers have problems defending the pass
So the game's outcome may depend on how often
Green Bay can knock Kitna down on the grass
And while a win over the Lions might be in question
Taking the Packers would be a good bet

Speak Out Spew Off...
At least I got to watch the team of the coach I would have liked the Packers to have hired. Mangini looks like he's going to do alright. Offensively, it looks like they are just running plays now w/o much of a plan other than something to meet the down and distance. Defensively, they look lost. They have all their starters playing too. Appears to me, I've finally decided that the coaching sucks. Example: this weeks Jets team is playing with two rookie O-linemen and they're are doing fine. The defense has all of their starters playing and they are 11 weeks into the season meaning they haven't any excuse for their play. No one has been mentioning KGB. Where is he at week after week. They are paying him real good money, four sacks I think, and you hardly know he's playing in the game and that's from one of your premier players on your team................ Even when they got the momentum and the ball in the 3rd, they couldn't pick it up a notch! Hope they start playing some back-ups..... Hodge, etc.
Long Live the dying Pack!!!
Hey LLtDP, it really doesn't look like these guys can coach at all... you have d-linemen running down the field covering running backs and tight-ends, you have 2 shutdown cornerbacks playing zone defense instead of what they do best... so many junior-level mistakes are happening it's hard to know where to begin... Take Bubba Franks running deep over the middle on an intended pass play, it ended up being a INT for Brett Favre, it was ugly, the best packer radio fan comment - "Bubba runs like his shoe-laces are tied together and he's pulling a plow" - I agree... BKid
After writing yesterdays post , I noticed there was an article on KGB in packernet, someone had already noticed. Another thing I'm wondering, the last couple weeks, is why they are sending Bubba on deep patterns down the middle..... he the slowest player they have out there. This week as I'm reading, seems that most have started to settle in on the coaching as a problem too. I think talent wise, alot of teams are similar. Unlike baseball where the Yankees might have a $200 million salary and another might have $50 million. They should just auction the World Series off...it's pretty much bought anyway. There are other coaches out there doing more with less and now after several weeks, we kind of have some comparisons we can look at. TT has a bunch of coaches that were losers or unproven and MM (included) doesn't seem inclined to do anything about it. They don't seem to be improving and they definately seem out game planned week after week. Hope I have something better to write next week.
Long Live the dying Pack!!!
I was listening to some of Chris Havel's Sportsline radio show over at the PackerNet.Com website this week... D-Coordinator Bob Sanders hasn't been carrying his weight and is in the process of being ripped a new one by Packers Fans everywhere. Deservedly, his d-players don't ever seem to be on the same page play to play. Do we get our 5th d-coordinator in 5 years? Does current LB coach Winston Moss get a promotion? When in the hell does DB coach Kurt Schottenheimer get fired? When does head coach Mike McCarthy up the level of his responsibility for improving the play of the Packers by showing some sideline emotion?. BKid
Hey BK... Keep the faith. Lemondrop

It's Always Been War...
From the satire department over at www.imao.us comes this funny little gem:
Bears-Packers Rivalry Now Classified As "Civil War"
In a major decision by NBC, the long-standing rivalry between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears will now be referred to as a "Civil War".
In a morning press conference today, Matt Lauer, co-anchor of NBC's "Today" show explained, "after careful consideration, NBC News has decided a change in terminology is warranted, that the situation in NFC North Division with armed militarized factions fighting for their own political agendas can now be characterized as civil war."
"First, Brett Favre has frequently been referred to as a 'gunslinger' with a 'rocket arm' that has launched thousands of murderous, high-speed footballs that have killed millions, or at least broken Donald Driver's finger once."
"Second, Bears coach Lovie Smith [no relation to Mrs. Thurston Howell III - ed.] has declared repeatedly that his goal is to build a team that can defeat the Packers. Now THAT'S an agenda!"
