Packers 23 @ Vikings 17

The Vikings are 5.5 point favorites in this game. Someone should inform the odd makers that 6 points would be a high scoring affair for the Vikings. I doubt it will 6-0 either. I couldn't make myself pick them, but I think the Packers will win this game. I really don't even think it will be close. The Vikings only hope is a complete dome meltdown by Favre, which is still a possibility.

The Vikings offense stinks out loud.



Every once in a while the Vikings just explode on the Packers, maybe that will happen again. In the meantime I'll be mentally prepping myself for an implosion.

The thing about sports is that this is probably at best a fight for second place in the division and maybe a wild card. Neither team is playing any good football this year except for a moment one time or another. But because of the personal importance to various people, this will be treated as huge and the game could go down as a "classic" if it's exciting despite the terribleness of it all.

Whichever team decides to suck the least on Sunday will win. Should be interesting, and as always, the entire Page 3 staff will be there live to give you the latest updates and fashion faux pas. The Packers minus Favre will have to make sure Favre doesn't throw away the game.

Buccaneers 10 @ Panthers 24

Yeah, like I have anything to say for this game. I'll use this space to rant about something that's bugged me for a while about the NFL. It happens from time to time but it happened again last week. I don't remember who it was. Either spiking the ball is a penalty or it isn't. You can't flag players depending on where the ball happens to bounce after the spike. Either the action itself is a penalty or not. Who the ball happens to carom off is irrelevant if spiking the ball wouldn't otherwise draw a flag. That is all.

Here's a rule that should be changed: if a team has a field goal blocked, the offense cannot advance the ball. In the Louisville-Rutgers game last night, One of the teams had an extra point blocked, but an offensive player picked it up and ran it in for 2 points. Talk about punishing the defense for making a big play.

I'm not sure I understand why "reminder" is in quotes.

I think throwing penalty flags that ignited into flames in mid-air is something that should definitely be looked into.

Bill Simmons - Packers ( 5.5) over VIKINGS
My daughter is 18 months old and I haven't come close to dropping her yet, or even nearly dropping her, even though I've been holding her and tripped over phone cords and dog tails and everything else you can imagine. I mean, I would never drop her. The parental instinct gives you super-powers -- it's hard to explain unless you're a parent, but somebody could shoot my kid out of one of those T-shirt cannons that they use for NBA games and I would catch her 100 times out of 100 even if you had me hogtied and wearing high heels.

Anyway, I was thinking about this because every time I watch a big Vikes game, Troy Williamson drops at least one huge pass. So why couldn't they hypnotize him to have the same instincts for a football that parents have for their children? Couldn't this work? I feel like this would definitely work. And honestly? I haven't been this excited about an idea since I was pushing for the networks to hire lip readers a few years ago. Have sports teams ever explored hypnosis before? I would also want the Celtics to hypnotize Tony Allen into realizing that he shouldn't dribble or shoot under any circumstances, not even in pregame warmups.

No one is going to read this, but that bad spot on the goal line with 6:50 left in the 1st qtr cost the Packers a touchdown. Packers should have challenged it, but they still kinda got screwed.

I think Favre can still play.

Ditsy cheerleader moment: Near the end of the game, the camera was on a cheerleader during a break in the play. I am positive that the words that came out of her mouth (it was audible, not me lip reading) were "Let's go Football!" I'm not making that up. It was pretty great.

Anyway, Donald Driver is amazing. Ok, well, he's pretty good. He's on pace for 101 catches for the season.

I think everyone needs to stop copying everyone else's picks. Rams-Seahawks and Packers-Vikings were just about the only 2 games that were disagreed on. Fairly disturbing considering that this season hasn't been terribly predictable.

This is actually turning out to be a pretty good season for Brett Favre. He's on pace for over 4000 yards on the season. He's currently on pace to come up 2 TD's short of Marino's record, but it is not out of the question for him to throw 12 more for the tie.

Some other interesting notes: Aaron Kampman leads the entire NFL with 9.5 sacks. I don't even know who this guy is (ok, I do, but he is still a relatively unknown.) Apparently no Packer has ever lead the league in sacks. I heard that on TV. I would have figured that Reggie White did it one year, but I apparently not. Donald Driver is one pace for 100 catches.

Sacks have only been an official stat since 1982. White led the NFC in 98 with 16 (AFC leader Michael Sinclair had 16.5) and White tied for the NFC lead in 93 with Renaldo Turnbull at 13 (AFC leader Neil Smith had 15). Which is somewhat of an anamoly considering that the AFC leader versus NFC leader standings are 10 to 14.

It sure is. What I found most annoying is that so many jobs list on monster.com, where you list all your info. However they make you fill out their own application repeating info you told monster and that is on your resume. Then the last step is always giving them your resume.

I know they want to make you work for it a bit, but it's annoying.

Maybe we all got debated out last week. Maybe we all just grew up. Maybe we didn't really care about the "who's going to suck slightly less" battle. I'll say this though; I'm disappointed in the amount of smack talk this year. We call this a rivalry?

Oh, and the Packers still suck.

Rivalries require key characters to keep them going. Favre-Sapp, Favre-Urlacher, Favre-and pretty much anyone. I think that area is lacking a bit right now in this rivalry. It's "Favre and the kids" against "Brad Johnson and the misfits". It's just not too exciting. The ex-Packer Vikings is the only real story line, and it's clear that not even all of them ellicit negative feelings (Favre and Longwell were all chummy after the game).

The one thing I will say is this: eat it Sharper!!! You got taken to school on the express lane.

Oh, and the Packers now officially dominate the dome. From those at the game could we get an estimate on the fan percentage in attendance? Seemed like the Packers fans were almost as loud on tv.

There are always quite a few Packer fans there. Season ticket holders can sell that one game and go to the other 9 for free, so many do. I would guess it was a 10-15% Packer fan crowd. You'd actually be surprised how few fans it takes for the crowd be be heard on the TV and how little of a difference everyone vs that small group makes in terms of hearing it get louder.

Also, we both may be 4-5 but if the season ended now two 5-4 teams would be the wildcards.

Also, the Dome is rediculously loud for football games. Unpleasently loud actually, even when the Packers scored (probably 40-60 split between Packers and Vikings fans, maybe closer to 50-50). I went to Packers-vikings game there in 2002. Wasn't a huge fan. I'm sure most dome's are pretty similar for football. That's because it was meant to play outdoors. So I am talking trash about the stadium. And your current quarterback is not performing well. Also, your receivers could be playing better.

I still like Darren Sharper. I still like Ryan Longwell, I still want Erasmus James to play and play well, I want Brad Childress to have success as a head coach, and I want Darrel Bevel to do well as an offensive coordinator. How can all of these Wisconsin people be playing for a sucky team? That's where the trash talk motivation has gone. If I say "your coach sucks", I'm pretty much insulting myself, because if he's from Wisconsin and he sucks, then I must suck too, right?

The dome does suck, but I like being indoors. The people who say "it was meant to be played outside" are never the ones who are actually at the games every week. They are always just pontificating about who's team is "wussy" and who's isn't from their couch.

"And your current quarterback is not performing well. Also, your receivers could be playing better."

That's smack talk? I've said worse about the team. They "could be playing better"? It would be hard for them to suck more. It didn't really dawn on me until the Packer game which we did complete passes that it had reached the point where I was actually surprised if a pass was completed. If they are open Johnson misses them by 20 yards. If the ball is there they drop it.

I find it very questionable to say the dome was ever 40-60 or 50-50 Packer fans to Vikings Fans. My gut reaction was to say that the dome was 25% Packers, then I realized that that would mean for every 3 Viking fans there was a packer fan, and that wasn't the case (our group aside). So in other words it's easy to "over estimate" a group of things that "aren't supposed to be there" because any measurable amount looks like a lot.

And no Scott, our coach does suck, so go ahead and say it.

The people who say "it was meant to be played outside" are sometimes the ones who are at the games every week. And I'll bet that most of the season ticket holders at Lambeau probably say it.

I've lost my smack talk ability in the wake of the Packers being bad. I mean, you have to be able to have some confidence that your team will back you up when you talk smack. Also, what's the point in smack talk if the person you are smacking is going to agree with you.

guy 1 "Your QB is lame."
guy 2 "You know what, you're right. I wish they would bench him."
1 "Your recievers couldn't catch a flu"
2 "I know, they are pretty bad."

Where's the fun in that.

There is no fun, that's what makes it bad smack on your part.

Yes I'll bet Packers fans do say that...because that's what Lambeau is. Admitting they would like to be indoors would be admitting Lambeau could be better and is viewed as wussy. If a group of guys are talking they are going to talk about how much better it is to be outside and how much more "manly" it is. That doesn't mean they aren't wishing on the inside that they could just dress in a jersey and watch the game.

Football is a game for our entertainment. Movies are popular outdoors too, but I never hear movie purists complaining when the drive-in closes for the winter about how movies were meant to be viewed outside. I'm there to watch a game, not survive the elements.

Also good smack talk has to be borderline morally reprehensible and, if possible, dig up skeletons that were buried a decade ago.

For example:

The Vikings may have lost, but at least our QB isn't a pill popping alcoholic.

Brett Favre is awesome. I can't believe people aren't considering him for MVP. Aaron Kampman should be defensive player of the year.

Oh oh, my team is 3 out of 4 in Super Bowls. How's your team in the big game?

Ha, I always enjoy that a packer fan can't talk smack for 2 sentences before bringing up the superbowl losses.

And yeah, while unlike Jon I didn't think my team was terrible I didn't and still don't think it's all that great. I still keep waiting for the other shoe to drop.

I'm not a big fan of "smack talk" for a few reasons.

1. "smack talk" is a dumb phrase
2. The world is not lacking for ridiculous arguments that often end up getting out of hand.
3. It's like bragging about something that you have absolutely no part in ever. I always found it odd that Packers fans brag about Super Bowls that happened before they were born, but then it quickly dawned on me that the Super Bowls they've won during their lifetime have equally nothing to do with them. Don't get me wrong, I understand this kind of thinking can take all the fun out of sports if you take it too far, but I think maybe it'd be nice if there was a bit more of it.
4. People start to play the morality card as if there is any professional sports team with only "good guys" on it. It's one of the ultimate glass house situations when you have fans cheering rabidly for one football team and then calling out the questionable character of the other team's players. Wow I really hope the guy who crapped in his girlfriend's closet scores so we don't have to lose to the guy who bumped the traffic cop.
I wish there weren't illegal and immoral behavior by anyone, and I don't condone it just cause everyone does it. But if you're going to cheer for a sports team you have to understand you're eventually going to be cheering for some real jerks.
I'm sure I have more reasons to dislike it, I just got off on a thing there and that's about it.

I was just being facetious about the fact that we apparently grew up here at the can. Way to crap all over our good time, Jon.

hey, Davenport's gone now though. We crapped him out on some other team.

Jon has no fun. NutCan officially has become the NoFunCan:)

What's the point of cheering and/or watching sports and/or the existance of sports if the success of the team we choose to root for says nothing about us. That's the whole point. Why else do people watch sports than to have something to brag about later. I need more explanation.
