Titans Code Blue... No Green! 


This Sunday in the Rockwood Lodge we're featuring a new product in Blitz Light! So it's time to head out on the road and down to the Smokey Mountains and get the festivities started, and when you pop a cold one, make it a cold-activated Blitz Light! and turn your party into a code green experience: Our special thanks goes out to the National Parody League, now an "official" sponsor of Blitz Light, the tundra cold activated beverage in the green, no blue, bottle.

Go Pack Go!

Speak Out Spew Off... 



_________________________

I could not sit still for the whole Jets game on Sunday, but the final score does not give much indication of how "average" that Favre looked. He was throwing balls all over the place with several of them landing squarely into the arms of the opposing team. If I was a guessing man, I would think that Favre needs glasses. There is nothing else that could explain why he tossed a couple of them right to a guy wearing the wrong jersey.

I think the Packers knew what they were doing when they tried to convince Favre to stay retired. His skills have slipped even though he can still make it work some of the time. That might make him better than a lot of guys playing QB in the NFL, but he is no longer one of the best in the business.

BF already has 11 interceptions and 2 fumbles lost. He also has 15 touchdowns. Of those 15 six were in 1 game. This is after 7 games. I doubt he does 6 TDs in a game again. So far the numbers don't look all that good for BF going forward. By the way, the last TD against KC, he got lucky.

fbg3


Hey fbg3, yes, it's interesting that both former Packer QB's BF and JT O'Sullivan lead the league in INT's at 11.  BK

Maybe I have too much free time but I perused the list of entries in the Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame, I know this isn't Curly, Bart or Brett I'm talkin' about but is anyone else surprised Chuck Cecil is not in there? I am presuming Sterling Sharpe went in at the first chance, but I don't remember him ever going in either. I remember he did not get along with Green Bay media, I am going to look at the list to see if he is in. But Cecil, maybe not the same talent level as linebacker Nitschke, but the exact same spirit.

So watching the "sissy-slap fight" on MNF last night,I like the match up with houston/tennessee/titan/oilers or who ever they are now especially with some of our better defensive players coming back! GO PACK GO Beat the who-ever-they-ares'... yeah.

Big Ern said so!!!!
_________________________

Wow.... there sure is a lot of spewing goin on about this alleged 'leak of info' thing with BF and Detroit.

C'mon. Give BF a little credit. I mean, really. If he seriously did talk to the Lions, do you really think he would share knowledge of the Packers game schemes with the lowly Lions?! The lions can't beat a cold, let alone another team. Don't you think if he really did do something like that, it would be with the Vikings? Especially since he had been in taks with them before he was traded?

I'm not saying he's perfect, but good grief, he did give 16 years of his career to the Packers. In the lean years and otherwise. I'm sure if he wanted to, he would've demanded to be traded long ago if there was that much bitterness.... but no, he stuck it out.

As far as I'm concerned, until something CONCRETE comes out in the press that BF is truly turning tail on the Pack, I will continue to wish him well in NY, even root for the Jets--especially if they're playing one of our NFC North rivals -- (in a Forrest Gump tone).... and that's all I have to say about that....

GO PACK GO!! Come out of the bye-week and kick some butt down in Tennessee!!

Hey BS, why don't you just go ahead and type out everything you made me look up (I happened to be sitting at the computer) on the question, which is, it's unusual for 3 teams (Packers, Vikes, Bears) in the same 4 team division to have a bye week together, it's the only time this will happen this year.  BK

Seems like the Favre thing has been dying down a little bit this weekend, I want to believe Brett's denial. I think he is a bit guilty though, just shows his level of bitterness towards TT. Hopefully time will heal on all sides.

Presaging Packer Prognosticators... 

It's been a long 2 weeks since we last heard from our presagin' Packers Prognosticators, and this week we're featuring an undefeated matchup between Girl With 3 Beers and Chief Cheesehead, a new look for the Green Man, and long-time resident BeerKid spews some more pre-game prognosticatin' that absolutely no one bets their life with, so hold on to your Packer helmets boys and girls, it's time to bring you our fine tradition of providing Packers football analysis from somewhere far out there and way out beyond the back forty there eh, and this week we have breakdowns from:


This week's a tough one to call, Tennessee makes some really great Whiskey, and they have a really cute raccoon mascot, but their QB is "Brett Favre Old" and well, it's the young guys on the field that catch my eye, and I like the Packers to have the energy this week to knock off the undefeated Titans. Drink 'Sconi Beer and Go Pack!!!

Girl With 3 Beers


I've spent a long week inhaling the vapors from my favorite Smokin' Hot Cheddar Fondue (add jalapenos) that I always keep ready to serve, and peering through the veil of sweat constantly rolling over my eyes, I'm bending Time for something really useful, and according to the vapors, the raiding party from GB will prevail down at the battle for ol' Rocky Top.

Chief Cheesehead


When you try out to be Extispicy, and throw in a little bit of Alphitomancy, and your end result comes up un-even, well it's time to go with the old world Wisconsin stand-by to get your divination done correctly. Yes, I'm referring to Tyromancy. I've rolled out the block of extra-aged cheddar cheese to give my analysis the right taste and texture... and America's Dairyland makes the very best cheese. Go with the Packers.

The Green-Man


With over 2 weeks to dust-off and polish up the Magic Crystal Ball, to get it correctly calibrated for the green and gold divination that will tell us something about this week's game against the Titans in Tennessee. It simply said that the Defenses are matched up fairly well, which will invite a low-scoring game, and the Titans are going to try and grind out a win by running the ball, but the Packers have the explosive Offense and Special Teams, so the now relatively healthy Packers should win on the road, 23-16. You can count on the Ball.

Beer Kid



Coming off the bye week has helped the Packers, so it should help our prognosticators, and even though the Packers are matched up against an undefeated Titans team, this week our gang of four have all picked the Packers to give Tennesse their first defeat of the NFL season. Go Pack!

Packers Verses Vikings... 

Back When This Football Season Started
The Vikings Thought They Had It Goin' On
They'd Assembled A Team To Take On The League
But Somehow It's All Been Going Wrong

But They Were Riding A Two Game Win Streak
As They Prepared To Meet The Chicago Bears
Figuring They Would Just Outplay Them
But That Wasn't Quite The Way They Fared

The Game Started Off Great For The Vikings
As They Ran And Passed For An Early Score
But The Bears Weren't Going To Be Intimidated
And They Certainly Weren't Going To Be Ignored

Then Something Strange Started To Happen
As The Vikings Began To Self-Destruct
With Four Interceptions, Blown Punts And Fumbles
Providing What Can Only Be Called Bad Luck

Coach Childress Will Have Much To Do This Week
As He Engages In Some Deep Introspection
Trying To Solve The Problems Plaguing His Team
And Finding The Path To Their Resurrection

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

The Packers Have Been Hit Hard By Injuries
Leaving Their Defense Somewhat Undermanned
And Exploiting Those Defensive Weaknesses
Was Just What Manning And The Colts Had Planned

To Do That The Colts Offense Had To Take The Field
But Green Bay Kept Them On The Bench
Showing That The Best Laid Plans Of Mice And Men
Are Subject To A Well-Placed Monkey Wrench

The Wrench Was Provided By The Running Game
Which Was Finally Showing That They'd Improved
And Aaron Rodgers Was Able To Throw At Will
Keeping The Ball- And The Clock- On The Move

The Game Ball Should Have Gone To The Defense
And It Was An Honor Hard-Fought And Well-Earned
As The Defense Dominated Manning And The Colts
Providing The Big Plays On Which The Outcome Turned

When The Team Once Again Takes The Field
The Team Will Be Practically Complete
As The Guys Who Have Been Hurt Return
Rested And Ready To Bring The Heat

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

This Is The Week That The Teams Have Off
In Sort Of What's Called A "Bye-Week" Vacation
And Teams And Players Will Put It To Use
To Engage In Some Serious Rest And Recuperation

Spew Off Speak Out... 

Talking about football means not much... and making a mountain out of a mole hill about it doesn't either. But the media needs it's meat. You can't blame Brett Favre for anything the Packers do wrong (or right) this year! And again, I like Aaron Rodgers! I just don't think the Pack need the distraction of Nothingland.

You can still vote for MM and NC: Although it's the bye week, Chunky Soup has the Pack matched against Denver for it's weekly Click for Cans contest.

And the NFL Pro Bowl Ballot can be found over at NFL.Com, make sure to vote for your favorite Packer players.

I have to ask though - was Favre really this stupid all along? He never really seemed like it in old press conferences...but now, he sounds pretty dumb.

After stewing in this for a day or so, I gotta say under no circumstances am I willing to throw Brett under the bus, I just can't. I look at it now as our most beloved player, at least since the sixties, and the player who loves the name brand of Green Bay Packers more than anyone since the sixties, is, in effect, a jilted lover, and I can dig that, and I love him for it. I will never forget that virtually the first thing he said in a New York press conference was I will always be a Packer, gave me chills. Add to that his being the prime ingredient that made it safe for me to go to work in Chicago on Monday mornings, and that in the financial district, pretty much the heart of the Bear lair, to see Bear fans go from intentionally mispronouncing his name, to outright envy of him to the point where their outlook changed to the only problem with him is the team he plays for, obviously all of us could go on and on about the thrills he gave us, I really must stress look at it as the sad end of a very intense love affair, (but one that nearly doubtlessly, even in light of this, will eventually be restored to inferno status)which nearly all of us have endured I guess, and ask yourself where your own sense of reasoning was at that time. Pretty skewed I will wager.

I admit even though it means better draft choices I have not exactly rooted for Brett as a Jet, the worst part of me wanted to see him get injured in that first game, after all, I am jilted myself and have been a Packer backer since before Brett was born. In closing I will say I don't think Brett is close to being washed up, near as I can tell he go this hard til he is 43, wish it was as our backup or starter, but I have every confidence that TT will use whatever draft choice it is as I believe he always does, and that is intelligently. To those who want to toss TT under the bus, I will bet that when his tenure in Green Bay is over, he will say that was bar none the most difficult thing he had to do, it might not seem like it, but a heart beats in that guy to, he really understands what fits in Green Bay, and surely understood nobody ever fit like Brett Favre, but somebody had to make a decision and sign the damn papers.

_______________________________________

Hey BK wasnt that an awesome victory? I think i saw Peyton almost start crying a couple of times. We don't need no Ty Law we've already got great DB's what a performance!! It's only going to get better when we get a healthy Al and Atari back. Now the DL just needs to do the same on the run and then we can dare anyone to try to throw on us.

M.B.
_______________________________________

At this point, I have to believe that we are just going to find out if Favre really dished on the Packers or not. The thought did enter my head that since he was so friendly with Romo that perhaps he gave the 'Boys a heads-up on the Packers for that game. If you consider that the Cowboys have only won a single game since they played the Packers, it is not hard to look at them as an average team. They ran all over the Packers while stuffing the Packers run game. If they had a little heads up on plays, they might be able to defense the ball a little better.......coincidence or.....

draftfan
_______________________________________

BF is acting like an athlete that has been pampered his whole life. It's hard to believe that can happen. He thinks that whatever he does is Ok. If there is anything wrong, that alright because he's Brett. Look over the last year and objectively evaluate what he has said and done. All he's doing now is crying because he can't get his own way. Great QB but he needs to shut up and act his age.

Speak Out Spew Off... 

Just in case some of you are trying to hide your head in the sand over what BF has been saying to other NFL teams since he left the Packers, former Packers Safety Leroy Butler had this to add to a WSSP Radio interview with Fox Sports' Jay Glazer (reported by Rob Demovsky at GB Press Gazette)
    Glazer discusses the Favre story
    ...former Packers safety LeRoy Butler said he doesn't believe Favre initiated the conversation with the Lions. "Brett didn't do a whole lot of calling around," Butler told WSSP. "People called him, and he loves to talk and the phone was passed around." Butler also said there are "other stories that are going to come out" about Favre. "This is just the beginning," Butler said. "This is only the smallest one." Butler did not elaborate.

    -- Rob Demovsky

So be prepared for more stuff from a has-been loser who still can't shut up his mouth to save his legacy in Wisconsin, but then, maybe us Packers fans never mattered to him, maybe BF feels the bridges need to be burned forever. I judge a man by the actions behind his words...

UPDATE:  No longer care about someone who is no longer associated with this year's current team...


BeerKid - Still Pack For Life!

______________________

Gotta say now, having read Leroy's comments in his game review in the Milwaukee paper, my happy inclination is to say this story amounts to nothing, does not make what Glazer said untrue, just that Brett not surprisingly has alot of friends, and even if he wanted to reveal things that could hurt the Packers, his chances would be slim and none. Thank you 36 for putting this hideous story in practical terms. I won't worry about other stories coming out til I see them and put Brett to the flame again.

PS - Brett Favre showed this afternoon at his press conference why he will always be a much bigger man than me.

ray
______________________

The day BF made the comment that it wasn't his job to mentor Rodgers, is the day the halo came off BF in my eyes! I've said it from the beginning of this mess, it was not right to throw a coach (assistant) under the bus, by quoting him on the Greta interviews. I thought that was the lowest BF would go..I guess not.

If the Lions story is proved true..and if what Butler says happens..Then I'm not so sure I want to retire his jersey or hang his name in the hallowed stadium any time in the near future.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought he would stoop to this level of childishness! He's not only undermining the team, but he is alienating himself from the fans, which he does not want to do. While we may not always agree with TT or MM, at this point I believe they are acting with more class than BF!!

KS Packer Backer
______________________

I have this odd sense Favre has a publicist who is helping him write another book. It makes sense as he is lock jawed on all the garbage that has happened to a would be legend. Plus it's not in the Packers best interest to throw the train in reverse. He would have a best seller. Hell Jose Canseco did it. Brett if you want to air dirty laundry go on Springer. You should be ashamed if this holds water. Not only have you shafted your lather year teammates you did the same to Edgar Bennent & Leroy Butler your old school teammates. Bonita should slap you a good one.

So I'm watching NFL news or whatever, and heres the latest on ol'whats his name..bf,he says he didn't tell any secrets about us to our rivals because he hasn't been involved with the offense for about a year?!...DUDE you still don't get it!!!You DO NOT date your buddys ex!!!Or drink his last brew(unless your headind out the door to the store!)But still.He also claims that that toni romo called HIM for advise not the other way around.A message to romo..Watch your girl around favre man that guy cannot be trusted(plus your chick is slightly scandalous) GO Arron ROUSE keep kickin' that ass! GO PACK GO!!!!! you suck bears.

Big Ern said so!!!!
______________________

Okay. Sometimes I think Glazer embellishes a bit on his 'stories', you know what, he makes a lot of sh#t up. Then again this one I don't even think I could have made up. Number 4 spoke to the Lions, during the game? Who cares? We won. Number 4 wants to speak to everyone on the Packers schedule, fine. I could give a sh#t. Do your best.

All I have to say is if this whole sordid affair is true TT and MM must have done something really crazy to Favre. Maybe took a dump in his locker? How about put his SB ring on Ebay? He might have had a let's honor John Elway's first Super Bowl ring party? Or maybe did not let him report to the team for training camp? Or kicked him out of the stadium? I know what it was, TT traded him to the crappy Jets. Yeah that is it. That would suck.

Either way I am not putting my Favre stuff on Ebay, I am not going to denounce him and everything he accomplished in Green and Gold, I am just going to keep on cheering for AA Rod and the rest of the boys. Oh, I am also going to watch the game next Sunday and try to guess which guy on the Titans sideline is talking to Favre. Is there a drinking game in this? Who knows.

Go Pack Go!!!

______________________

Here's a solution to everything. I think Favre needs to retire from football and help solve the Fields epidemic around Mississippi. all i have to say Brett who loves mowing lawn is the real deal to do the job. Hes experience and he does it all the time. I think he actually does it even if the lawn is already cut. He just loves his tractor that much don't see him ever getting off it. So to say favre sucks at lawn mowing is ludicrous. I think if Favre stayed retired he could enjoy cutting other peoples lawns to have fun making more income. Which will solve the field epidemic.

The Fields Need Favre and its time they get him.

JP


Hey JP, that's a very nice solution to the current "knife in the back" activity that's currently going on.... The Fields of Mississippi are calling for BF... to have their grass cut. heh heheh heh eh  BK
______________________

I love football. I love the PACKERS. I am so glad the season is in FULL swing with all the crap with former players,trades and injuries it's easy to lose track of why we watch the game... Because it's healthy competition and rivalry's, it's watching men with extra-ordinary ability vs. each other, BEER and good times!!! GO PACK GO!! P.S I got a job.

Also regarding Favres recent allegations of indiscretion ie. "runnin' his soup cooler" to the lowly lions and possibly others, isn't playing for the jets punishment enough?!The only thing worse would be being Brett Favre and not being taken back by the MIGHTY GREEN BAY PACKERS!! So go on son talk to who'll ever listen, the page has turned.

Big Ern said so!!!!


Hey Big Ern, good news on the job hunt---I've yet to begin mine...  BK
______________________

Is there any doubt now that BF is a total asshole? BeerKid called it during the soap opera this summer. It is really telling that none of his teammates have said that he would never do anything like that. An I used to kinda like the Jets.

Salt Lake Cheese


Hey SLC, thanks, but I was secretly hoping to be proven wrong the whole time... instead of being laid to rest, the controversy only seems to be expanding... I had sort of, kind of, gotten over BF finally, I was actually rooting for the Jets to beat tha' Raiders... and the Pack win big, partytime, and then I come home to this BF Crap all over again... and then Leroy Butler hints and teases that it is worse then what we've heard already.  I want all of it exposed to the light of day... BK


BeerKid - We were probably all hoping that all the BF crap was just that - crap. But it apparently isn't. Does this guy have a brain cell left or were all they victimized by vicoden? And hear, hear for JP and the Fields solution.

Packers 1st Place NFC North!!! 4-3... 

It's Packers Game Day, and we're off to The Daily Pint again, a place that carried us to Victory over the 'Hawks last week, we're hoping for more of the same today against the Colts. Expect some fireworks, it going to be an offensive game-plan for both teams, where the Colts offense may have an edge over the Packers offense, the opposite is true for the Defenses, the Packers D has the edge. Should be a great game. Go Pack Go!

Update:  A horse is a horse of course of course and this horse had 2 INT's, and the Packers had 2 TD's. I heard cries for "Where's Sorgi?" Ok, I didn't, but one could imagine it after Mr. "Peyton worse game of my career thanks to the Packer D Manning" Ed and the Colts lost big-time 34-14 to the Packers. Our genuine 100% authentic thanks to Chimay and Mr. Ed for contributing heavily to the Packers win.

Another Update:  So did he or didn't he? If BF did talk to the Lions about the nuances of the Packers Offense before their game earlier this year I'll go with what Jim Rome said this morning on his radio show, "it may not be a criminal act, but it's still a 'violation'." It didn't help the Lions, but who else did BF talk to or now by extension the Lions staff. The Bucc's? The Falcons? The Cowboys? The Packers lost those games. Like Rome said, not a felony, but still a violation (of honor, a fan's trust, whatever... you all can fill in the blanks.) Waiting for more info...

Bigger Update:  Straight from Jay Glazer's interview with Jim Rome. Glazer stands behind his story 1000%, started with ex-Lion GM Matt Millen's (how curious is it that he was fired during this time, hmmmm...) invitation to go hunting in Pennsylvania. BF returned the call the week leading up the Lions-Packers game. Glazer followed up 2 weeks ago on reports that BF talked to several teams, by talking to each of those teams, and 2 of those confirmed that the Lions staff had talked to BF, (i.e. Lions Staff had talked to these 2 teams Staff about BF's info on the Packers). Waiting to hear more... which I'm sure will come later today when I tune in to listen live to Sportline with Chris Havel over at WDUZ the Fan at 4pm CST.

Does anyone have any proof of this or is this only a rumor?

Hey JP, who knows for sure, we have Jay Glazer of FOX breaking the story yesterday, and so far today, not backing down from his report. We have Jason Wilde of Wisc. State Journal who confirmed the story through two "unnamed" sources. We have the head coach of the Lions, Rod Marinelli saying "no comment". We know that BF has a vindictive streak a thousand miles long, just based on him wanting to play for the Vikes so he could stick it to the Pack. Oh, his "total BS" text message to CNNSI's Peter King last night, that's the same "total BS" text message he sent out in July claiming he had no intentions to un-retire. We know what a total lie that was... so who knows where this will lead, truth or rumor, who knows.  BK

Talk about a fantastic performance when it was needed the most. Well done, gentlemen! I can't say enough about the pass defense.

If they could get more pass rush, they'd be impossible to pass against. Let's get healthy during the bye and roll in November!

PS, our 4-mer QB is proving yet again that he is a big-mouthed jerk. Rot in H-E-L-L, HELL! HELL! HELL!

Obviously the BF story is another case of Thompson trying to destroy Favre's good name. Thompson should be ashamed of himself, and so should all Packer fans for buying into this crap!

jonny c


Hey Jonny C, your so full of shit it's squirting out your ears. Don't believe Glazer's story? Fine, where is your proof that TT is damaging BF's image by being the "source" for this story. BF is doing this all on his own, and it's been obvious to me for years that BF never puts the team first. Go read Cullen Jenkins or Charles Woodson's quotes on BF - then maybe you'll have the chance to step up and out of the shit that you and BF-fanboy's are standing shoulder deep in... BF is no longer a class act, I mean compare him to the former Packers on the Vikqueens - Sharper, Longwell, Ferguson - no stories about them pulling shit to embarrass the Packers front office 'cept by their play on the field. BF has reduced himself to be a has-been loser, and the mask has slipped for all to finally see.  BK

Well so much for my interest in Ty Law. Well done boys, well done.

But on to this pressing Favre business, apparently true. When the truth of the situation is finally revealed, the amount of ass kissing that TT could request, but would have to much class to require is staggering. He truly is too good for an enormous swath of Packer fans, who need to be set down squarely in the seventies and eighties with quick fix reaches for the likes of John Hadl and JJ Jefferson. Trust me, your best bet as regards TT is to keep your mouth shut, or remove any doubt as to your level of intelligence by opening it. Wanting to still play, even at the expense of spouting questionable "truths" to an enamored public is one thing, TREASON, aye, that is quite another. I have said it before, and will again, greatest Packer qb, and people shouted me down last year for this, remains 5 time NFL champion Bart Starr, and greatest overall player is Don Hutson.

Hey Keg Man, your right, BF dead. Giving help to the Lions with a 90 minute phone (at 1:20 mark) call is sort of, kind of makes you not a Packer anymore. I don't know how anyone can keep defending this has-been loser... but your certainly welcome to keep trying.  BK

While I generally have been, if not lock step w TT on his free agent choices or lack there of (in particular Randy Moss, I just have a personal huge problem w his south end zone routine of a few years back, I feel I would be insulting Lombardi's teams to take him on, crazy I know) I have to wonder if it may not be worth looking at Ty Law if he was willing to come in here as (hopefully) a soon to be back up upon Al Harris' return. Having said that I have near total faith in TT's talent and character assessments, (including drafting Justin Harrell at that point in the draft, given what position he plays, did not look bad at all at the end of last year, his injuries were certainly considered in his assessment, I believe the correct choice was made, ditto Tony Gonzalez)

Hey Michelle, great to hear from you...

Otherwise, here's the direct interview link - http://www.packerpalace.com/multimedia/Al-Harris-Backstage-with-Michelle.mp3 - Great stuff Michelle, thanks for allowing us to share your work. We want more...  BK

Hey BeerKid............. Get ready for a solid dose of that 2-5 defense this weekend. If Indy can't run too well, it's the perfect time to use it!!! Could be a huge win to propel them through the rest of the season with some confidence. Don't think it'll be easy though, but winnable I think.

Long Live the Pack!!!!

Hello fellow Packer Fans, My Name is Barry B, I live in Columbus Ohio. I'm on a mission this year to get Nick Barnett onto the starting roster of the NFC Pro Bowl. He's made the alternate roster 4 times but hasn't made the starting roster. Voting has started on www.nfl.com for the pro bowl. If you would be willing to pass this information along to any other Packer Fans you know and get them to vote, I think we can make a difference this year. Thanks for your time, and GO PACK GO!!!!

I believe this is the turning point. Packers will pull it together and defeat the Colts. My hope is that we put on a pass rush with blitzes as I saw in training camp. I was disappointed we could not get Tony Gonzales for a second round pick. He actually wanted to come to Green Bay. He would have been a great upgrade. A good match up against the colts will be Tramon Williams vs, Marvin Harrison or Reggie Wayne. Tramon Williams is Al Harris replacement. Go Pack GO

Justin Harrell was injury prone in college and has rarely suited up as a pro. I don't know if Harrell has "accepted his problems as a man" but I do know he better do something radically different than he has up to this point. Bottomline, he has been a complete bust as a Packer. I to hope he finds his manhood this weekend.

Go Pack!! Packers by 10 over Indy

P.S. I'll save my blitz for all politicians!! Capitalism will always be better than Socialism.

CAMP


Hey Camp, If Harrell can't deliver something this week against the Colts, then gee-whiz, when will he... TT's philosophy seems to be 'Draft them in the 1st round today, play them in 3 years tomorrow', Hawk is the only exception so far.  BK
______________________

I got a good quality gut feeling that the Green Bay wake up call, extending through the end of the year, has just been received and accepted. Also I believe that Justin Harrell has accepted his problems as a man, and TT will yet be absolved of guilt in his choice, although you can also bet that the naysayers will not admit they were wrong and toss TT a long overdue bone.

Finally the way this season is shaking down, can anyone really say that the possibility of a Packer/Jet Super Bowl is a pipe dream? I know the Pack has looked average at best to this point, young guys are getting valuable experience while guys are injured. Re I saw third string Charlie Peprah make two form tackles at the end of the Seattle game, I am loving that, and I believe the Packers are going to be getting real angry starting about... NOW.

And finally if this anger is somehow brought to bare against Brett in a Super Bowl. All I can say is for Brett's sake I hope there turns to be an element of truth to some of the words he has spoken (to this point I have seen no evidence of this), or there will be a massive comeuppance to our old hero in this admittedly imagined scenario. Go Packers, Go TT, I believe and I am certain you do to. Now can any of you bastards give a 52 year old man a damn job? There are about to be hundreds of thousands of very bitter people my age looking to take it out on people who fly private jets and sit in privileged areas, often in large part through the efforts of people like me who ain't got nothin left to lose and we will be calling for an all out blitz on people like Jack Welch at GE, and various CEO's off Wall St where I was used for 25 years. There was a song years ago called "Shouldn't have took more than you gave." Aye. For the moment I will use the Packers as my violence outlet. For the moment.

ray


Hey Ray, my violence outlet is playing PlayStation2, either of God of War I or II games, great stress release, sort of keeps me out of trouble. Then by the time the Packers game is on I can sit back and relax and cheer, jeer, or continue drinking in heavy moderation without multiple incidences.   BK

I Am Mr. Ed... 

This week in the Rockwood Lodge, we feature an attempt to revive another episode from the Packer Palace's "dusty archives in making" department. This time we think we got it right, the perfect player to act as the new Mr. Ed, especially now that horseface John Elway is no longer around to kick down. Yes, it's TV funny man Peyton Manning! He's got the teeth and he's here to help. So for you, tonight, here's the intro to:Now come along and join us in a public tour of another of Rockwood Lodge's departments, the glue factory. Where we show you how to get things out back in the pasture to stick around forever. Here's your chance, tune in now and sing-along to "A horse is a horse of course of course..."

Packers Verses Vikings... 

The Vikings Were Prepared For Lion Hunting
In The Metrodome Last Weekend
But Instead Of The Blowout They'd Envisioned
Minnesota Trailed As The Game Neared Its End

It Took An Intervention By A "Zebra"
To Cure The Way The Vikes Were Playing Ball
Helping To Set Up A Winning Field Goal
With A Somewhat Questionable Call

The Lions Made Some Big Mistakes
But The Vikings Made Plenty Of Them Too
And If That Continues Sunday Against The Bears
Brad Childress And His Team Are Screwed

Chicago's Team Is Waiting For The Vikes
Looking For The Chance To Even Up The Score
From Last Year's Game When Peterson Ran Wild
They Won't Let That Happen Like Before

With Kyle Orton Under The Center
And Young Matt Forte Running With The Ball
Chicago Has Earned The Top Spot In The Division
And That's Been A Surprise To All

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

The Seattle Seahawks' Third-String Quarterback
Happens To Be A Young Man Named Charlie Frye
And When Injuries Dictated That He Be The Starter
He Stepped In To Give It His Best Try

But He Wasn't Able To Pull Off The Upset
Despite The Effort His Teammates Displayed
Leaving The Fans Of The Seattle Seahawks Team
Distraught And Somewhat Dismayed

Now It's A Leap From Frying Pan Into The Fire
As The Indianapolis Colts Are Next In Line
While Manning's Knee Slowed Them Just A Bit
Last Week's Game Showed That He's Feeling Fine

The Colts Are Playing More Like Expected
And Are Getting Their Season Back On Track
And While Good News For The Team And Fans
It's Not So Good For Rodgers And The Pack

The Packers Defense Will Have Its Hands Full
As Peyton Will Often Put The Ball In The Air
And The Colts Defense Will Do Its Level Best
To Assure Packers' Fans A Deep Sense Of Despair

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

The Bears Are Better Than The Lions Were
And The Vikes Will Soon Find That Is True
While The Packers Will Have To Bring Their "A" Game
To Keep The Faithful From Feeling Blue

How in the world did the Packers and Vikings wind up tied for first? Keep and eye on this race and the contender separates from the pretender.....While the Colts try to turn Lambeau into 'Peyton's Place' - the Vikes go into Soldier Field, which isn't always kind to them............

Presaging Packer Prognosticators... 

Riding the wave of optimism that flushed out of Seattle last week and brings the Packers home to Lambeau Field to face Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts. So without delay we try to continue our fine tradition of providing pro football analysis from somewhere out there and beyond out there eh, and this week it's time for us to present to you:


I like Peyton and his commercials, but isn't it obvious, the more we drink the easier it is for the Packers to win. So in the obnoxious and divine inspiration provided by Nikki at The Daily Pint last week, drink drink drink, drink the Packers to victory. It put me in 1st place after only one week of trying!

Girl With 3 Beers

Impressive! Most impressive! The ability to destroy the Colts is insignificant next to the power of the G-Force. The Colts losing to the Pack in Lambeau, you are unwise to doubt. This surviving PackerLord has fore-seen it.

Darth Vincent



Q:  Will the Indianapolis Colts win on the road in Green Bay?

A:  Better not tell you now. Outlook not so good.



The Golden Magic G-Ball


Time to drag the ol' crystal ball back out from behind the empty cases of beer and divine out for you what will happen this week in the Packers Colts game. It's a bit smokey, but I think I see it now, yes it's Drink! Beer! Now! Definitely it's Drink! Beer! Now! that I can see clearly. Hold on hold on, keep your beer-goggles down, I can and will translate this for you. Drink! Beer! Now! simply means the Packers win at home. Easy said and easy done, something like 29-25.

After a successful week in Seattle all 4 of this week's presagin' Packer Prognosticators going with the Packers to handle the Colts in Green Bay.

Spew Off Speak Out... 


Hey BeerKid,
    A note to you that j********0 is using your words as his in posts on the jsonline blogs.

    button has cautioned him previously about plagiarism, but thinks it necessary that BeerKid take action, if that's what BeerKid wishes, or perhaps, button ponders, BeerKid could simply be j********0.... but nah. button knows BeerKid wouldn't have posted such drivel as has j********0. Points to one instance...
buttondavis-slobotovich
____________________________

Hey button,
    Thanks for defending BeerKid over some 14 year old juvenile delinquent copying and pasting words (most times described as incoherent rants) from Packer Palace... but it's our target audience (you know, the 14 year old juvenile delinquent in all of us), so we have to allow it on some level and we do. So you don't have to bother with the defense of the realm anymore, unless you get vast enjoyment from it, then your welcome to continue badgering this loser over his copy and paste plagiarism (and it's funny plagiarism by the way, button's one instance is the updated post on drinking Chimay, Nut brown Ale and the Wonderful Drunken Melee™ where winning left us thirsty for more paragraph.) Oh and thanks for the confidence that it's not drivel from BeerKid under another 'guise, BK can do drivel with the best of them, and successfully does, but stop pondering as BeerKid mostly lurks everywhere but rarely posts as darth_vincent anywhere...

    One last thing buttondavis-slobotovich... your "I know BeerKid and you're no BeerKid" comeback line was pretty damn funny - thanks again. Your green 'n gold 14 year old juvenile delinquent for ever...

Hey BeerKid,
    Would like to spew that beer does the body good and its time to Drink Beer Now this upcoming Sunday. JPKool loves the fact button blames him for changing the subject on the famous jsonline blog site from the most annoying debates about the Favre fiasco to something valuable like the 401-KEG plan which will definitely save us men some money. Drinking Beer Now! number 1 fan woowoo

    Jp asks is it not a sin too spread the news and adopt the beer kids "drink beer now" philosophy?

Hey JP
    It's not really too much of a problem from what I can read, your right - "Drink! Beer! Now!" or "Winning Makes You Thirsty For More!" and many other great quotes and along with our graphics are meant to be shared and re-used by whom-ever, where-ever, and its usually not a big deal, but JP, just be careful with your copy and pasting, you weren't drinking Chimay at The Daily Pint in Santa Monica, CA with our small green and gold crew last Sunday, although your welcome to join us anytime if you want, like this Sunday against the Colts.
BeerKid - Still Pack For Life!

____________________________

Anybody else lovin' this standard gentleman's handshake, it seems like the D-backs may have started it, like Carrol Dale, Boyd Dowler style. I have been really hoping someone would do this for about 20 years, and hopefully a Packer, as I believe that sort of understated behavior is a good fit in Green Bay. With the development of certain celebrations in the last 35 years, like even for a tackle, I have long held that to be truly outrageous would require going back to merely handing the ball to the ref. Anyway I think its pretty cool.

Also very glad the man running gb is TT and not Jerry Jones. Like anybody else obviously wanted Brett to stay, but I still hold Green Bay's GM is as astute as there is in the game, and from what is publicly known in the Brett situation, without guilt, only guilty of imagined scenarios on behalf of understandably disappointed fans.

ray


Hey ray, John (John of Alisha, John, Nikki, Sara, Ed, Shane and Brent at the Daily Pint) noticed this and was also impressed, he asked me after the game when that had started. It's actually funny that the Packers D-Backs are trying to get around the restricted group celebrations that the NFL imposes, so the gentleman's handshake is where it's at. It does look professional.  BK

Hey Lemondrop, I just love the mudduck firealarm, aka "the Packer fan's guide to enjoying life and eating popcorn while forces opposed to you go down in flames". The TT pinata's would have made a whole lot more money if you had brought them out to the market for sale a few months ago... but I do know people who still want to take a swing or two...  BK


lol... Well now, that Mudduck stuff is funny all the time! But I am trying to see if anyone is interested in the TT Pinata? even tho Rodgers is doing ok? I could be making some money here BK... ahem.  LD

I love the pinata!! After the failed attempt to bring in (Tony) Gonzalez where do I get one??  LD


Wait? I thought YOU were offering the TT Pinata to all of us so we could take swings Oh Yes... it's now more than a few of us who really do want to swing away... multiple times.  BK

Hey BeerKid, Congrats on another award, well deserved!! Chris is right, big racks are always a nice thing!! Now, back to bid-ness ... Yesterdays game was a well deserved and much needed win, there is no doubt about it. But I have to wonder what Coach Mike "Not in the right mind set" McCarthy was thinking when he sent our only chance of postseason action (a.k.a. Aaron "Buck" Rodgers - with a bad wing and all) up the middle not once, not twice but three times during the game?? I have to admit I was hitting my cold and frosty for a well needed pull after he tucked the ball and headed into each pile of Seattle humanity.

Let's head into our bye week with another W against "Satan Manning" (That's what New England fans call him) and have everyone heal up and hopefully see some of our starters back in the game. So let's continue to kick ass and take names onto another NFC North Division Title.

GO PACK GO!!

PACKER PAUL - Minneapolis, MN.
____________________________

The Packers have struggled a bit so far this year, but it seems obvious that Aaron Rogers is not to blame. He has done very well for a "rookie" who has not had much game time until now. He is cool under pressure and appears to have all the tools of a great leader. Toughness, self-sacrifice, supportive of teammates, careful speaker, good decision maker. He has avoided getting into trouble and have you ever seen a more perfect pass than the one he tossed to Jennings on the TD. In all the years of watching Favre, I was totally blown away by the sweetness of that pass. Favre had a different style, but Rogers is starting out with a pretty strong performance.

The season is young and the Packers have some nicks, but other than the Giants, I don't see anyone who is head and shoulders above the Pack.

draft fan
____________________________

A win! Happy happy, joy joy! Now it's Indy. I just can't wait to see the Tramon Williams/Marvin Harrison matchup on the outside!! And a special thanks to the Bears for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. HA!!!!!!

PS, BK, I think Thompson wants to build a team full of, well...Ted Thompsons. You know, low round picks that manage to hang around for 10 years by being just good enough not to get cut, and playing special teams. Go Packers!!!

   "It is essential to understand that battles are primarily won in the hearts of men."

Did We Win An Award Again Or Something... 

Well apparently the answer is "yes". Kristin from Milwaukee Magazine checked in to say "Milwaukee Magazine voted your site as a Best Sports Blog" in their current issue, a featured article on the Best of 2008. We get a small mention down at the bottom...
    PackerPalace.com: Not much in-depth analysis or original reporting, but no shortage of off-the-cuff commentary and Vince Lombardi quotes. Best of all are the creatively cartoonish videos. Where else does Brett "Charlie Brown" Favre try kicking a football that's pulled away by Ted "Lucy" Thompson?
Well it's obvious all the "off-the-cuff" commentary from Speak Out Spew Off includes all of you who visit regularly and chip in, and the "not much in-depth analysis" quote is a proud feature of Packer Palace, the in-depth analysis can be found at our links page. Finally, we are most humbled to have our animations in the Rockwood Lodge pointed out for recognition, the true badge of honor for all of our motivations.

Thanks Kristin. Thanks to everyone at Milwaukee Magazine. Thanks and most importantly, our un-dying gratitude to all of you that make it easy for us to put the effort in week to week. As they say, their 200,000 readers can't be wrong. Go Pack!

Packers 1st Place NFC North!!! 3-3... 

Here's the moment that TT has been waiting for, his whole draft strategy, his whole reason for being the GM of the Packers. Are his scrubs better than the Seahawks scrubs? When injuries hit a NFL team hard, it comes down to the backups. There may not be two teams that have more injury-games lost this year.

So it's the reason for TT's being alive, when push comes to shove will his players rise to the occasion and show him to be the genius that he is. I'm trying not to be sarcastic here... OK I am, but if the Packers GM doesn't believe in bringing in playmakers to enhance the team and make them strong playoff contenders, then he must be building the team for the day that it's backups vs backups... His odd moment to shine.

Funny part, today our Packer scrubs are better than the other team's... and how does that old quote go, "an ugly win is an ugly win is an ugly win no matter who's on the field". That's exactly how it goes...

Update:  Packers roll 27-17 and... well today's entertainment was brought to me by our hosts The Daily Pint with Alisha the Bartender providing all the key essentials, Nikki, John, Shane, Brent, Ed, Sara and few others I'd name but the effects of the 1st Chimay Triple, a Bloody Mary for support of the 2nd, a dive off into a Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale (Redhook's Nut Brown Ale is much much better) and back to Chimay Triple's tripled... and then post-game started with Stone Ruination Ale I'd had to claim back and finish consuming from Nikki after she lost control of the 22oz bottle, you know, penalized for spillage on the carpet. All in all a a grand time, which fully devolved into some kind of wonderful melee, and I did notice, really I did, that the Packers cruised to a 2nd half victory over the Seahawks, but otherwise I was deeply involved with a some-what drunken wonderful melee. Winning just makes you thirsty for more.

The Toughest Jobs... 

This week in the Rockwood Lodge, we feature a lost episode of Packer Palace's Toughest Jobs with both head coach Mike of the Green Bay Packers and head coach Mike of the Seattle Seahawks. Two former associates getting together and doing the little things that most NFL football coaches won't do. They're doing First we're up on the treacherous pine-forested hillsides of Mt. Rainier for some extreme mountainside logging, where after a brief moment of hard work, the fun starts with a special guest appearance.

Afterwards, we take the coaches and head out to the open sea where the hi-jinx continues as the guy's are trolling bait on a fishing trawler with some actual tough and hardworking fishermen. Ahoy there eh!!! Finally, we come back to shore and get the coaches on the grid-iron field, where a Sunday Shoot-out of Epic Proportions is going to be held.

So come join us in the Rockwood Lodge where everything's not just for dinner, it's for your continued viewing pleasure. Tune in!!! Go Pack Go!

Packers Verses Vikings... 

Funny Things Happen In Monday Night Games
And This Week Proved That Yet Again
As The Saints Fumbled, Stumbled And Ran Back Punts
Yet Somehow The Vikings Managed To Win

The Saints Came On Like Gangbusters
With Offense And Defense Looking Strong
But The Vikings Pulled Off Some Unusual Plays
And New Orleans Saw The Night Go Wrong

Minnesota Should Have A Chance To Relax This Week
When Detroit's Lions Come To The Metrodome
They Haven't Beat Minnesota This Century
As Least While The Vikings Are Playing At Home

There's Not Been Much To Cheer For Lions' Fans
But That's A Chronic State Of Affairs
What Is Amazing About That Team In Detroit
Is Their Fans Are So Accepting Of Despair

The Lions Will Have One Advantage This Week
As Any Play That Works Will Be Unexpected
But Truth Be Told The Predictions Are That
Detroit's Players Will Leave The Dome Dejected

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

The Green Bay Defense Had No Answers
For The Falcons' Rookie Quarterback
Who, Combined With Relentless Running
Provided An Unstoppable Attack

Aaron Rodgers Put Up Some Good Numbers
Even Though His Shoulder Is Sprained
Too Bad The Porous Green Bay Defense
Made His Valiant Efforts Be In Vain


This Week The Packers Head Off To Seattle
To Face A Seahawks Team In "Panic Mode"
For Holmgren's Team Is At One And Three
And Their Coach Is Ready To Explode

The Seahawks Were Expected To Be Top-Flight
Based On The Way They Played Last Year
But Injuries And Schedules And Plain Bad Luck
Have Kept Their Performance Anything But Premier

The 'Hawks Receivers Have Been Playing Hurt
And The Quarterback's Been Damaged As Well
If It Weren't For The Play Of The Running Backs
This Team Would Have Sounded Its Death Knell

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

The Detroit Lions Are Looking For Their First Win
But It's Not Going To Come Against The Vikings
And While Seattle May Think The Pack Is Easy Pickings
The Game Won't Turn Out To Holmgren's Liking

Happy Birthday to you! I hope you are doing something fun today to celebrate - having a good meal out or going on a leisurely bike ride or consuming a few beers.

Can you believe our last WI sports weekend - Packers, Brewers and the Badgers? No one could give us a win!

Barb


Hey Barb, let's see what I can check-off right now, bike ride this morning to shake off some stiffness, check. Beef jerky, mixed nuts, pop-tarts, and some chocolate with morning coffee, check. All I have left to do is the "consume a few beers" part. I can asure you, that will be checked off too....   BK

Spew Off Speak Out... 

Hey BeerKid...

I know we have a lot of TT supporters, but this is how I feel right now.
    I don't feel the need to point out that I threw as many TD's in 3 hours as Aaron Rodgers has thrown all season. Thanks, Best Ever
Aaron "Buck" Rodgers is banged up a bit, but how many straight games has Brett gone starting as QB now?

GO PACK GO!

PACKER PAUL - Minneapolis, MN.


Hey Packer Paul, thanks for the cheap laugh, and don't add to the confusion that BF was injury-free during his current consecutive starting streak, he played through his injuries as if they weren't there and we all just got used to that toughness.  BK

_____________________________

Hey Packer Paul- rodgers instead of favre is the absolute least of this team's problems. Touchdown passes versus the Cardinals poopy D should only count 1/2 anyhow

Now we just need to to get Harrell on the field. Man that was a waste of a draft pick. Thanks TT, for nothing.

Hamilton aka Sign Boy
_____________________________

Ive gotta question, Do you think that If AR was offered an extension on his contract now that he would resign with the Packers? I mean he looks credible enough right now. But, Do you think he wants to continue playing for the Packers. Farve fiasco, Needs just about a whole new o-line in front of him, so he doesn't get killed trying to ply his craft. He could just play out his contract and more than probably get a better deal someplace else. A more competitive team... Just a thought.

chilwil86


Hey ChilWil, I'm not sure any team in the league really offers any QB the pass-protection that makes the grass look greener (OK, Dallas with their huge lineman) and all it takes is an injury, a free agent defection, or similar and the QB is back to having an un-certain line. You always take the money...  BK

Quoth Lombardi...

Presaging Packer Prognosticators... 

Well, after three consecutive weeks of draggin' the Packers down the drain with our presagin' Packer Prognosticators, we decided to come back anyway and wreck some more havoc through-out the football world and cheesehead nation. So with that in mind, we continue our fine tradition of providing football analysis from out there and beyond there eh, and this week breaking down the Packers vs Seahawks game in Seattle we at Packer Palace present:


I can usually say that my analysis is always guided by a team's colors, or by the butts of their key players, but c'mon, coffee from Seattle or beer from Wisconsin? I go with beer every time... so go against the Starbucks, oopsie, the Seahawks.

Girl With 3 Beers


Finally! A different Inksplotch to read...

Woah, I don't know what it looks like to you, but it looks like 2 big scary Packer D-Linemen coming in to sack Matt Hasselback to me. Seattle Seahawks lose at home.


Rory T. Est


I've spent a long day considering this matchup, watching the sun arc across the sky in it's slow dance with time, and examining the smoke rise from the small ritual wood fire that keeps my cheddar fondue ready to serve, and this week, the smoke signals do not favor the Seahawks.

Chief Cheesehead


No excuses here, but somebody put something in one of my 27 drinks last week... This week with some sparks of the Packers running game now appearing, and AR can throw for 300 yards with his sore shoulder, if needed again, all it will take is a penalty and mistake free game and the Pack should roll... 27-20. Drink! Beer! Now!

Beer Kid


Looks like the Pack is soon to be back on track, with all 4 of this week's presagin' Packer Prognosticators going against the Seahawks and expecting the Packers to win on the road and save their struggling season.

How's Your 401-KEG Plan Working... 

This was a nice post game diversion...
    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you will have $49.00 today. If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you will have $33.00 today. If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you will have $0.00 today.

    But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refund, you will have received $214.00. Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle. It is called the 401-KEG.

    A recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year. That means that, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon! Makes you proud to be an American!
Go Pack, Go!

Packers 2nd Place NFC North!!! 2-3... 

We won't hear until before game time if AR is ready to roll or not... and did I just see that backup QB Matt Flynn's nickname is "Ironhead". Hah, I like that. Injuries always take away a team's chances for a successful season, but it still comes down to the Coach calling the game with the talent he has. Time for MM to step up and win today's winnable game against the Falcons.

Imagine my surprise when my choice of beers came down to a Chimay Triple or a Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale at my local neighborhood brick store, and I went with the... Bastard Ale. Stone Brewery has slowly been stealing my barley 'n hops allegiance... No complaints so far.

UPDATE:  The day was capped off with the old stand by quote uttered by yours truly on that 3rd and 19 play in the 4th quarter... "throw the ball down the field (for an INT) like Brett Favre does" and zappo whammo presto!!! It happens. Everything on offense looked OK, things on defense didn't look very good at all. Pack lose 24-27 to Atlanta due to many things unrelated to AR's shoulder, oh hell I'll say it, way too many penalties and some pretty shoddy tackling by the Defense and all around un-imaginative (bad) play calling from all the Packers coaches.

BeerKid - Still Pack For Life!

Another tough loss, and the Sudsman predicts the Ted haters will be out in full force, again wishing Favre was back. Yeah, Brett would have made all the difference yesterday. Rodgers only threw for 300+ yards and 3 TDs with a damaged shoulder. (The INT was Favre-like, I must say.)

But of course, had Brett been there he would have:
    - stopped the run
    - covered Roddy Smith
    - eliminated holding penalties
    - played with a better "pad level"
I'm reminded of a song from the South Park movie (to the tune of "What Would Brian Boitano Do?"):

What would Brett Favre do
If he were here right now?
He'd throw a pass and he'd catch it too
That's what Brett Favre would do

When the Packers are in trouble
And need a field goal
He'll kick it 77 yards
Wearing a blindfold

When Brett Favre sacks the quarterback
He does the Lambeau Leap


After recovering the football
From the bottom of the heap

And when Brett Favre plays bump and run
He covers two guys like glue
He'll stop Michael Turner too
That's what Brett Favre would do

Maybe even kick an ass or two
That's what Brett Favre would do
That's what Brett Favre would DO!!
Sudsman


Hey Sudsman... flippin' brilliant.  BK

_________________________

I see problems with Rodgers injury, and it all goes back on TT. Because Teddy would not sign a veteran quarterback, Rodgers had to play this past week due to not having a capable backup quarterback. So Rodgers doesn't practice all week, and then steps in and plays with the pain. Yes, we can all admire his "toughness" and what a "gutsy" performance he had, however, by playing him, we are jeopardizing the entire year, by not letting that shoulder heal properly. Now this week, he will again not practice in an effort to rest it, and then try to play. Then next week, every time he throws in the game, he will wince in pain and grab his arm. This will go on all year, just like Favre with his thumb injury. Every time he under throws a receiver or throws a pick, we will wonder if it was his sore shoulder and his arm strength. If the Packers had a veteran QB that could step in and give the team a chance when Rodgers is out - like Collins in Tennessee, for a week or two, it would mean the difference in a playoff game or a "rebuilding" season. Why draft two quarterbacks? Still makes absolutely no sense.

Frank in Waterford


Hey Frank... the big question on AR's arm has he done more damage, there's obvious pain. Someone please point out to me who a "good" veteran QB would be... and please don't tell me Culpepper, Rattay, Simms, or who??? I think our scrub rookie QB's Flynn and Brohm are better than those 3 guys.  BK

_________________________

Back in July I visited this site and other inferior Packer forums (this place rocks!)... and everyone (especially BeerKid) seemed to be drinking the TT Kool-aid; supportive of the team "moving on" and understanding of TT/MMs hard stance on Favre. My opinion then, and my opinion now is that all parties were at fault (yes, Favre was whiney as hell). However, not taking back Favre after two-three months of retirement was the STUPIDIST DECISION IN PACKER HISTORY! None of this had to get out into the press. TT should have just said "wish you wouldn't have retired, but we'd love to have you back as our starter because you give us the best chance of winning"---- Most GMs would have had that much football sense. But TT/MM wanted to put their stamp on their team, and here you have it 2-2 and looking like a team that should be 1-3 and on it's way to 2-5.

My prediction was 5-11. That's not what I want, just what I predicted. Doesn't look like I'll be too far off. Sorry fellas... I'm didn't drink the kool-aid and I'm not about to start. I've watched every game since 1992 and I can say that it's that much fun to watch anymore. I want there to be some good years ahead of us, and I don't think TT is the right GM for the job. The guy sure does love playing rookies; youngest team in the NFL, is that supposed to be a good thing????? If this team does end up going 5-11, TTs is to blame... no one else.

BITTER FAN - TOLD YOU SO


Hey Bitter... unless something happens positively for the Pack soon, you'll be completely right.  BK
_________________________

Hey BeerKid........... I think it's getting a little late for predictions. So far they haven't played very well and they're 2-2. I'll stand by my 11-5 (?) at the BEGINNING of the year. They'll get things straightened out cause, really, they can't play too much worse. The refs seem to have a hard-on for the Pack this year. Not sure what's going on there. I feel a conspiracy from Goodell!!! Jenkins was in a headlock on the INT for a TD in the 3rd (no flag). I know they're were planning to crack down on that type of block and have been calling Clifton for it. Then again they're trying to keep the QB safe, so I don't really know why they're trying to restrict the blocking then???

And the pass interference call a little before then on Rouse was another horseshit call. They want the DB's to look back and play the ball, so he does and they call him cause he bumps into the WR when he slows down. Can't look at the ball and the WR behind you at the same time. They need to get their shit together w/the penalty rules. The pass interference play is taking over the NFL. Earlier in the game, one of the WR's runs to/into the DB and they called him for illegal contact. They're killing the game w/all these ticky-tacky-touchy calls. A lead is never safe anymore. It's just one referee's flag away from a big gain and getting back into a game!!!!

Long Live the Pack!!!
_________________________

Sorry to be fatalist, and I am a TT supporter, obviously it is easy to be a Brett supporter, I mark TT as sharp a talent evaluator as currently available.

However being a fan since 65 I have seen this movie before. Some of those 70's and 80's teams that left the gate were not too bad, though not as good as this one COULD have been, but this is one of those years and hopefully not epochs. A legitimate shot at 14 and 2 I would now say we will be lucky to see 6 and 10, and will get a significant beating from Atlanta, a physical team who I suspect will injure at least one more of our starters, an actual Packer nightmare is brewing.

Nevertheless history and truth will show Brett was in the wrong on most or all counts, doubt if he will ever apologize to TT or that TT and McCarthy expect one, but Brett you were wrong and your Packer legacy is tarnished. Our best which I was a lone voice in saying during Bretts time, was and remains Bart Starr, 5 time champion and Packer to the bone. Brett can take a seat behind Hutson and Nitschke and Lambeau for that matter, and if he came to play in Green Bay, I would be in favor of putting a good old Nitschke helmet to helmet on his ass, and Ray to tell him, thats one for TT ye greedy fuck, take Randy Moss and his southendzone ass wipin, and go give your talent advice elsewhere.

No offensive line means no happy Packer fans. It's not that they keep getting switched around, it's the entire lot of what 9 of them play like they have less total nads than me and I have 1. It's amazing that any of them are collecting an NFL check. I don't think they could keep either of my grandmas from the Blue Light Special and they have to claw their way through 6' of topsoil first.

I was reading about this offense based on one of those weird punt formations that is legal in college and high school that only had 3 lineman and a ton of wide receivers all spreadout based. If it's legal in the NFL we might as well switch to it because our offensive line is offensive.

By the way, I finally tried one of your Chimays. It wasn't bad, but it didn't take the red off my neck, so I went back to the cheap stuff.

Hey there Packer Backers...... Just so you know the performance of our wonderful team the last 3 games ...yes the last 3. Is all due to the fact that and I QUOTE" Brett Favre is NOT in the right frame of mind to run this offend" what an offense! Now don't get me wrong here, but I think A-rod is good....BUT HE DOES NOT HAVE THE X FACTOR ....prediction packers 6-10 this season

Packer57
_________________________

What a frustrating season to date. Going in-I thought that the team that had made it to the NFCC game might suffer a setback, but not a semi-complete collapse. While it doesn't help that the defensive side of the ball has as many wounded as the victims of a machine-gunning...it's the offense that has me concerned. It appears that time may finally have caught up with clifton-and I guess after 9 long years, that isn't (or at least shouldn't) be unexpected, and the jumble of second rate guys in the middle of the line has finally caught up with the team, bringing mike and ted's excellent adventure to a screeching halt. For those wondering where the passing game is--please take not-the Packers can only send two or sometimes three guys out into patterns because everybody else has to stay in to block.Think that Bubba Franks' blocking ability isn't missed this year?? The running backs can't run, because there is NO fear of the passing game, which can't get any better because of the playcalling, which can't get any more adventurous because the receivers can't get open.... SHEESH---what a cluster-&^$%

I'm not sure what there is to do. Maybe they need to let Aaron throw the ball in a more "what the hell" sort of fashion-take the chances and have a chance to make things happen.oh wait--that's right, ted's "iron man" the guy who ISN'T injury prone has a separated shoulder....

At this point-the Packers have to find ONE thing they can do well. Whether it's running right or running left or throwing over the middle-and just repeat that play until they are absolutely perfect at it, then find another play. this season is going in the tank--this is the time to try to build team unity and identity-instead of having the coach sound like childress in his press conferences-totally ignoring reality and making it sound like this team is still among the top tiers in the NFL

McCarthy - PLAY BRANDON JACKSON!

Das Wolf - Pissed in NorCal
_________________________

What has been the deal with McCarthy's play calling? Is it because he's trying to simplify the offense for the QB that he said was "ready" which shows that he has an ounce of doubt in Rodgers. Or is he being conservative because of the tough schedule this year and he's trying not to upset the opponents too much. This maybe a young team but unlike someone like the Chiefs we actually have some good players that play their ass off game after game.

What got us a stone's throw away from the super bowl last year should be the same m.o. this year times ten. The Cowboys game exposed a lot of weaknesses, and with Indy, Tennessee, Jacksonville, New Orleans coming up on the schedule we should be progressing forward not backwards. Hell Minnesota and Detroit exposed our weaknesses too. If they don't start clicking both offensively and defensively Atlanta might make us look silly in our own house.

The Packer Remote... 

It's always one thing to try and predict what the Packers are going to do each week. Injuries always contribute the most to this imprecision, and so many other factors are involved it boggles the unprepared mind, so it usually comes down to gut-instinct guess on which team will prevail on any given day, it's why they play the game. It's quite another thing to actually control the outcome. It has been done. By me.

Take last year, you want to know why the Packers did so well? It's quite simple, Lemondrop sent me this Packers remote. It was quite functional, worked as needed. The opening game was in doubt, I was able to get the Packers into FG range, a surprising win over the Eagles to start last year. Week after week I used the remote during the game. It was beautiful, it was awkward, it played like an upside down 12-string guitar, but I was learning. Ran into some trouble during the 1st Bears game, lost the Cowboys game when I forgot to program in the backup QB function during pre-game. After the 2nd Bears loss due to insufficient power, and cold weather, I had the batteries fine-tuned and upgraded specifically for the Playoffs. I was in control, it was a dream season, the Packers were sitting at 14-3 and hosting the NFC Championship game... what could go wrong?

The Giants came to play, I fought hard, the remote did what it needed but it was like someone was fighting back, (my suspicions are that a NYG remote is out there somewhere, how ELSE do you explain them winning the SB) and the game drove into overtime. To my shame, this is the first time I'm telling all of you, that fateful moment, the play. I pressed "PASS" and then just as BF dropped back, the remote slipped from my hand. I should have let it drop, but no, I reached for it, bobbled it, and then triumphantly clutched it between my forefinger and thumb, with no beer spilled, but here it is, to my horror my thumb was pressed down hard on the "INT" button and sure enough, well most of you are aware of how the tale ends, no matter how many times I pressed the combo "TACKLE" + "FUM" to stop them on the ensuing series, the NY Giants got their overtime FG and the right to go the Super Bowl.

I haven't touched the remote since... it took me and the Packers almost to the very top last year, and then left us all cold, crumpled, collapsed and bleeding on the frozen sidewalk, the damned thing is for sale. Anyone interested? Batteries NOT included!

Eat Mor Falkin... 

So graze on over this way, where our favorite pasture to eat is becoming Chik-Fil-Eh, eh, and the our favorite motto, with the backing of our familiar bovine cousins, is Eat Mor Falkin. So present yourself in the dairyland dining room, and wander on over to the Rockwood Lodge, where this week we our featuring Don't forget to bring a bib, things get a bit messy when we set the table for a afternoon of fine dining and Packers football. So come on over to our valley, where the Holsteins run free, the beer is cold, and whats for dinner is Falkin.

Presaging Packer Prognosticators... 

Again, our presagin' Packer Prognosticators are back after two consecutive weeks of getting their Packer predictions wrong. However, now is not the time to give up or lose faith. No, its time to double down, and with the barely-above-hapless Falcons coming into Green Bay this Sunday, the Packers are looking to get back on the winning track. So here we go again, continuing our fine tradition of providing football analysis from out there and beyond there eh, and this time we have for you:

I have found so many who's lack of faith is disturbing the G-Force... Rise above your petty grievances, don't give in... trust your feelings in this, the Bears still suck and the Packers will win in Lambeau against the Falcons. This surviving PackerLord has fore-seen it.

Darth Vincent


Forget the over-analyzing and minutiae of the comings and goings on the football field, it's simply a question of "pound, pound, pound, kill, kill, kill, mine, mine, mine". There is nothing better for a Packers QB than the warm feeling of having a weapon in your hand, I should know, and this Sunday will be no different. Go with the Pack!

First Primate


When one process fails, you must try another, so nothing gets me away from the table after a fine meal like my 2nd favorite practice, the divination of the future with barley loaves. Oh yes, as the leading Alphitomancer in the football universe, I like liquid bread just as much as your average Joe Six-Pack, and ummmm, hmmmm, this is much better than last week's brew. Hmmmmm, tasty, I like the Pack this week.

The Green-Man


Now it seems the last few weeks I've haven't quite reached that magical mystical place that means I can see the future clearly... well let me assure you that I'm wasted out of mind right now and I can see the Packers winning in the end, even though they can't stop Turner and the run, and even though they themselves might have a rookie QB running the show. With the smoke clearing away and providing clear sight, the Packers save their asses with a win, 20-17.

Beer Kid


No surprises here, all 4 of this week's presaging Packer Prognosticators are comfortable in their analysis that they are going with the Green Bay Packers to win the game and move to 3-2 in the NFC North.
