F.Y.Finger Award Goes To... 

Due to the miscalculation of gazing at the Green Bay Packer Organization and seeing a NFC Division Crown awaiting the Packers... We're forced to give this week's Fuck You Finger Award to ourselves.  For not seeing that GM Ted Thompson would again not address the interior of the Offensive Line, for drafting a QB Aaron Rodgers when any other player might have been able to help a team "reload" and gain the playoffs again.  By "rebuilding" the Packers in dribs and drabs instead of blowing everyone out the door upon your arrival.  If you're going to "Rebuild" then rebuild, don't hide it, that's created a lot of false expectations for us Packer Fans. 

We also have to give ourselves this FYFinger Award for thinking that Coach Mike McCarthy would be able to coach his way out of wet paper bag.  How many of you out there cringed in anticipated horror during that 1st offensive series for the Packers, already trailing 7-0, after 2 Ahman Green runs put us at 3rd and 1, that the Packers would call a run again, instead of play-faking, and with the whole football world, including the Bears defense, knowing exactly that the Pack would run.  No gain, no first down, big surprise.  How about the QB sneak later in the game on 4th down, when's the last time Brett Favre has done of one those, never, not even with a good offensive line, and we have a poor one this year.

So, here we stand gazing into the mirror while simultaneously whipping us the bird, for our high expectations in believing that this Packer team had somewhere else to go beside the cellar of the NFC North.  Now it's time to go and read the mail and see how many of you agree.

F.Y.Finger Award Goes To... 

Well here we go again with an assessment from one of our favorites, Mike Florio's ProFootballTalk.Com, placing the Packers squarely in the league's basement.  Here's some of it...


But who's the team in most danger to assume the basement? We give you Number 31...

Before a few thousand cheeseheads descend on PFT's world headquarters with pitchforks, torches, and those toothpicks with the plastic tail feathers that hold together the cubes of baby Swiss, hear us out...

The combination of new coach and new offensive system with an aging quarterback more stubborn than an overweight mule on a humid day in Duluth is a recipe for deeeee-zaster.

Again, there's a chance that the Packers could put it together. They lost plenty of close games in 2005; with a little luck, things could have been very different. Still, things just have a more tenuous feel for the Packers this time around -- and team won't begin to improve significantly until Lord Favre finally retires and the team begins life without him.

Check out ProFootballTalks full article here.

You'll need to scroll way down to July 2nd's posts, and at least he goes into great detail with a complete rundown of the Packers off-season and those things that will need to be overcome for the Packers to have successful run to the Division Crown.  The NFC North is a weak division, The Packers do have an outside chance at a winning record this year, but at least a realistic worse case chance to have 6 wins.  6 wins is not the 31st best team in a 32 team league.  It's around 23rd.  Shit, last year we had only 4 wins and were the 5th worse team in the NFL, this year is ging to be worse?  So with little fanfare we'll give this week's Fuck You Finger Award to Profootball Talk.Com and their unrealistic placing of the Packers 8 spots below their current worth and standing.

F.Y.Finger Award Goes To... 

I can't just sit back and take this crap forever, take a look at what Krupka and Byrne went and published over at Real Football 365:

Krupka's and Byrne's early NFL Preview

31.) Green Bay - Arguably the worst team in the NFL. The front office is becoming a joke, which was evident in its handling of the Javon Walker and Darren Sharper fiascos in recent years. The ridiculous treatment the Packers allow quarterback Brett Favre to put them through, and the strange hiring of Mike McCarthy as the head coach. The only reason to go to Lambeau this season will be to drink beer and see the crumbling of a legend. 27, 28, 29. How many interceptions is that, Brett?

WTF!  Are the Packers really that bad that we are the 2nd worst team in the league going in to this new NFL season?  I can't believe that for a frickin' second.  Yeah, yeah, I can still be rather caustic over the hiring of Mike McCarthy over Jim Bates, and sarcastic on just about everything else the Packers tried to do this off-season, the many failings of GM Ted Thompson are all out there for everyone to see.  But the Packers are going to be worse than last year?  That was 4-12 and 5th worse in the NFL.  I don't know if our coach can coach, but nothing looks that bad on our horizon.  I see the Packers right there at 8-8 and the chance at wild-card spot for the playoffs.  That's far from 2nd to last.  Screw them!  Krupka and Byrne win our Fuck You Finger Award of the week!
