  1. This Aint Packers Talk v69

    Yours is the second mention I’ve seen. Like you, I don’t care to look it up, but I wondered what happened. Without knowing anything about it, I am guessing that Peleton took a side in the culture war somehow. Transgender crushing other females on a virtual hills workout?
  2. Week 13 GDT: Packers at NY (Football) Giants

    Tend the back gate if you want Norm’s attention. The San Francisco loss had me stepping back. Going into that game I felt like I wasn’t trusting our record as an indicator of our position in the NFL Power Ranking. Afterward it wasn’t any better. It’s not any better after this game either. As a fan I find that my interest in the team’s season is waning a bit because I still don’t have a freaking guess as to whom they can or can’t beat. Rodgers had great stats against NY. yay. He also continues to make appallingly bad throws to the flats and on bubble screens. And he made beautiful throws and caught some lucky breaks, as when Lazzard tracked down the long gainer that was either off target or windblown. And the defense is collectively as unpredictable as the offense. These guys are exhausting to root for.
  3. 5th Down Depreciation Thread

    This was one of those excellent posts that I read before seeing who posted it, and then I said, "This has to be MrBob" in my head before scrolling up to confirm. My takeaway is that time is running out for Aaron Rodgers to gracefully transition into his final years by functioning within an offense instead of being the offense. EDIT: I saw the exchange between MrBob and Coachbuns re: Aaron hanging in the pocket and I kind of agree with Buns on that one. In fact, it seemed like the MrBob quote above argues for the Coachbuns position that Aaron needs to play differently, not more bravely. AG20's screenshots certainly suggest that Aaron could attack the field more effectively. I don't think that means he has to take gratuitous shots to make that happen.

    Setting it up with the terrified runner is genius. Flirting with criminal mischief it’s so effective.
  5. Remembering the day our expectations changed

    And Majkowski’s injury forced Mike Holmgren’s hand. Mike had a problem with Favre and his late night carousing and free-wheeling playing style. If Majkowski doesn’t bust up his ankle and wins in that season (93?) who knows how the Favre story plays out. It was almost like a 50’s sitcom the way that the brash and likeable main character QB made the walrus-stached HC splutter and bellow as Brett did everything wrong except for the parts where he won the games.
  6. 2019 Bye Week: Dope Sheet and Discussion

    7-2 and the most wins against teams with a winning record! Awesome! And yet I feel like the Packers are, if not shaky, astonishingly unpredictable. Still, I do really like the team this year. There are moments when the offense pulls off sublime, well-designed plays that are fun to rewind and watch several times. They exude camaraderie and a sense of fun. I suspect in the remainder of the season we will both win a game and lose a game we shouldn’t. At a certain point you realized we were the best team in football back in ‘95-‘96 and only bad luck could keep us from a championship. This year is fun but it feels like only some good luck could get us that far. We seem to be right in there with the three or four best teams in the NFC, and that’s sweet. But we can all pick out the talent deficiencies that could be picked on by smart and determined opponents. That 49ers defense looks formidable. I hope MLF and Hackett can use this week to figure out a way to make this the game we shouldn’t have won but did.
  7. I think Biegel had a foot. I can't believe that they even drafted Biegel when they knew he had a foot.
  8. NFL News & Notes

    Keep in mind both the Chargers and Earth Girls have been called easy. The term's meaning doesn't change, it's accurate use suffers now and again.
  9. Aaron Rodgers Appreciation Thread 4.20

    His eyes see 17 a lot.
  10. NFL News & Notes

    Of our four "easy" games only one of them is likely to be "easy". And I can tell you as a person who went to high school in the 70's, "easy" is not a static term but transactional and variable dependent. Just saying that probably explains how I blew the layups.
  11. Random Packer News & Notes

    I still say that they are playing soap hockey in the showers. I don't know what else explains all the injuries that pop up in between games.
  12. I hope Casey Heyward gets consideration.
  13. I didn't eat Snickers for at least a year because of a horrible Super Bowl commercial. You root for sales to drop as a punishment for stupid commercials. And I would guess that people get fired exactly one level below the executives that actually make "New Coke" level mistakes in marketing. At the place my daughter works the CEO lets his wife name new products while the branding department goes insane. Maybe she could name this last game "Call of Doody: Slack Ops". Flush it and move on by noon tomorrow please. This was a forgettable moment in 2019, significant only if the team holds itself accountable and makes plans to show up for the next matchup.
  14. When I was in junior high I was playing guard against a monstrously strong kid...all fast twitch and 180 pounds of 9th grade muscle. On my first snap against him he threw his forearm under my chin. My head snapped back, a blaze of fire ran down my neck and my left arm went numb. I tried to get off the field but everybody screamed at me to get back in the huddle. On the next snap the forearm knocked me out cold. When my eyes opened the hearing aid kid was looking down at me. “Thwede!” he said, “You’re thtarting off bad againtht that guy!” So, yeah Andy, we’re thtarting off bad.
