Vikings 0 @ Packers 34

Jeremy
In the first game against the Packers Adrian Peterson ran for 100 yards in the first half and was all but benched. He was given a full compliment of carries for the first time last week and did alright. The Vikings better go to AP early and often. The Packers all-pass-no-run offense should, theoretically, suffer now that it's getting colder. In other words, expect all week in Wisconsin to be 30 degrees, until Sunday when it will be a perfect 75.

A-Pete is good, but he's no Larry Ned.

The Vikings aren't exactly well coached. (Did you watch them watch that guy run back the 109 yard td? Hello! Tackle!) So, I am thinking that they will forget to put Adrian Peterson into the game plan. To win 2 road games is quite impressive though. Go Packers!
jon.jpg
Jon
Brooks Bollinger needs to start until further notice. Has he been named the starter? Honestly, I'm asking. I can't keep up. The only good thing about Tarvaris Jackson's game lately has been that he doesn't throw interceptions. Of course, that's only because none of his passes are near anyone, regardless of the team they play on. But seriously, I think that's the only downside to him not starting; interceptions will probably go up. Which could be big if the offense doesn't produce on all the other passes and the numerous runs. Still Bollinger makes Minnesota look like an actual team. Otherwise they just look like they're taking up space out there.

Colts 21 @ Chargers 23

So...the Chargers just suck, right? Tough loss last week for the Colts, they had the whole non-Boston world pulling for them.
matt.jpg

If only it were last year.

The Colts have got to win out if they can even hope for a chance to get the #1 seed. (Assuming someone can beat the Patriots down the stretch) The Chargers are just a bad team, end of story.
jon.jpg
Jon
Who knows how this one could turn out. I mean Indianapolis is much better, but San Diego is good sometimes. Still, if they don't let last week break the flow, the Colts should end up winning.

49ers 0 @ Seahawks 24

Jeremy
Weren't the 49ers supposed to be good?

If only it were 1986.

I think the 49ers were supposed to be good, turns out that they're not. But really, who cares? It's Pack vs Vikings!
jon.jpg
Jon
Has anyone heard from Frank Gore recently? Is he playing? Again, I'm asking.

For this week I can see the teams who are around .500 beating the team who is 1-2 games ahead of them. Then I see the deficit in their scoring- for example, the Browns are 5-3 and have 227 points to 233 allowed... ouch

While I generally don't look to highly upon nut complaints, this one is a legitimate gripe. I awarded it 5 nuts.

I have heard some people say things about Bret Favre in cold weather and let me tell u some stats...Invariably at his best in cold weather, a surprising attribute for one who hails from the south, Favre owns a perfect 27-0 record at home (22-0 regular season, 5-0 playoffs) when the game-time temperature is 34 degrees or below (23 games at Lambeau Field, 4 games at Milwaukee County Stadium). quote from -------------------------------------------------------http://www.packers.com/news/releases/2001/03/03-02.html......... this was as of 2000.... let me get u one up to date.... here it is "Given his Mississippi roots, Favre's record in frozen Green Bay is most surprising: 40 wins and five losses in games played below 35 degrees."---------------------http://www.scrippsnews.com/node/27135...... so now what did he say.....
Scott Wrote - 11/04/2007 @ 07:13:13 PM
What it comes down to is this, while the Packers have only played one team with a winning record so far, nothing they are doing seems to be doing anything to stop Favre. I hope they can continue this trend as the weather gets cold.
im pretty sure the packers and favre will do juuuusssttt fine..... dont you think?

The Packers playing better than the other team overall in cold weather and a passing game taking a statistical hit in cold weather are almost completely independent of each other. You can throw for 0 yards and still win the game. BreTT Favre could be the greatest cold weather QB the world has even known, that doesn't mean he doesn't perform better when the weather is pleasant. (Plus they've lost lots of cold weather games, that stat just keeps sliding to 1 degree less than whatever they just lost at.)

I don't think you'll find many people who will argue that the importance of a running game is increased when the weather gets cold.

Personally, I don't need many stats to know that Brett Favre is an excellent, dare I say, all-time great quarterback.

So, really I don't care a ton, one way or the other, how a stat makes him look.

But while we're here, I do have something to say about the weather thing. Wouldn't it be ridiculous if that stat showed anything other than Favre having a great record in cold weather? I mean, he's played on exactly one sub .500 team in his career. So he's got a great overall record anyway. He plays for Green Bay. So how many of those cold weather games do you think have come at home? Can I get a show of e-hands for the number of people who would expect someone with a career full of winning to have a bad, or even average, record in a farily large subset of games played mostly in his home stadium?

I'm sure if you don't know any better you're probably ready to write a respnse to this favre bashing I've been doing. But just to ease your minds, this rant is actually about statistics that I think are underwhelming. Sports, and many other areas of life are full of them. This one just happened to be here.

Brett Favre is the greatest quarterback in the cold weather. Tony Romo is going to be the next one in line that is one of the greatest quarterbacks in the league. I believe that the cowboys are going to win over the giants because of what Dallas defense is doing so far. They have improved on their defense. Packers will win it on Sunday at lambeau field because adrian peterson is not going to be able to run against the packers defense front line.

lol i beg to differ..... brett favre is THE BEST QB in the cold weather.... i think someone who would stand a chance would be....Tom Brady....the running game in the cold..... lol.... where is that logic? I mean the packers i dont think will change for the negative in the cold weather i think they will remain the same, or possibly get better...

his record was 27-0 AT HOME in 2000 when degrees were below 40...... so im preety sure i posted some where amount of games played at home.... in cold weather.... amount of wins....losses.... all that good stuff.....well im out u guys can go ahead and bash me some more i will defend my favre and packers for eternity!!!!!!!!!

JFK- With my corrective posts I was really only picking on you a little bit. Just a bit. It was more of a comment on how you can't make a grammatical error here without Jon or Jeremy (some others, including myself, it seems) correcting it. I merely stated I would comment first.

With the Legacy comment, that was just me being facetious, as there is a very strong dividing line between who is and who is not a Packer fan. If you post a comment as seemingly innocent as that, one (or both) sides of the line will come to discuss it.

And for the record, I am a prick, and I know that- I just like to be an instigator. So no insults intended, and I apologize.

I don't think you'll find many people who will argue that the importance of a running game is increased when the weather gets cold.


lol i beg to differ..... brett favre is THE BEST QB in the cold weather.... i think someone who would stand a chance would be....Tom Brady....the running game in the cold..... lol.... where is that logic? I mean the packers i dont think will change for the negative in the cold weather i think they will remain the same, or possibly get better...

Jon Wrote - 11/09/2007 @ 03:23:28 AM
So how many of those cold weather games do you think have come at home? Can I get a show of e-hands for the number of people who would expect someone with a career full of winning to have a bad, or even average, record in a farily large subset of games played mostly in his home stadium?


his record was 27-0 AT HOME in 2000 when degrees were below 40...... so im preety sure i posted some where amount of games played at home.... in cold weather.... amount of wins....losses.... all that good stuff.....well im out u guys can go ahead and bash me some more i will defend my favre and packers for eternity!!!!!!!!!



So do you even read the stuff you reply to, or do our comments just get auto run through the "Someone not necessarily even criticizing Farve, but also pointing out obvious statistical trends for reasons he might not be Jesus. I must attack now!" filter that seems to be in roughly 75% of all Packer fans and 98% of all fans under 18?

All I said was that passing attacks take a hit in cold weather, I'm not sure how any sane person can argue with that. Let's say Brett Favre averages 250 yards a game and 2 td in warm weather and 210 and 1 td in cold weather. Let's say the next closest QB averages 180 yards and 1 td a game. Do you see now how your claim "Brett Favre is the best cold weather QB" and my claim that passing is harder to do in the cold are completely independent of each other?

All Jon is saying is that the Packers have been above average to excellent in the Favre era, and you don't do that without winning a vast majority of your home games. Half the Packers home games have the potential to be pretty cold. Ergo is it really that shocking that they have won every home game under 40 degrees? I mean 38. I mean 37. I mean 35..err 32? I can never remember what the meaningless ever-sliding temperature is down to now-a-days.

Anyone ever play (HS, college, intramural) football here? That ball is D-AMN hard when it is below 35. That man (ANY QB) throws hard and fast. Try catching a large rock lobbed 50 mph through the air with someone wanting to take your head off.

These stats for Brett do indeed show some talent- but do not forget the receivers that helped him.

I'm sure if you don't know any better you're probably ready to write a respnse to this favre bashing I've been doing. But just to ease your minds, this rant is actually about statistics that I think are underwhelming. Sports, and many other areas of life are full of them. This one just happened to be here.


The one that always bugs me is when people throw out the stat "80% of accidents are within 15 miles of home" like it's some sort of "you can never let your guard down" type of thing. "Only 1% of accidents occur more than 50 miles away from home." Clearly we are just all better drivers while navigating areas we've never been and likely have no idea how to get around. It couldn't POSSIBLY be that your likelihood of an accident is relatively constant while 80% of your driving is within 15 miles of home and only 1% of your driving is 50+ miles away.

Do you know why 80% of accidents take place within 15 miles from home? Because the vast majority of people spend the vast majority of their driving time within that mileage, and in the same way, spend only a little bit of time 50+ miles away.

This does not include accident stats for people who live in their car.

My predictions about the Packers-Vikings game:

1) There will be no fewer than 4 calls that will completely change the nature of the game, and both Jeremy and myself will dispute the calls for approximately 3 days, both finding ways to argue that these calls screwed our respective teams.

2) Adrian Peterson will rush for around 150 yards. He will break 1 big run, but the Packers defense will pretty much contain him. By contain him I mean only allow him to have a good game, not a show-stopping game.

3) Brooks Bollinger will get booed at some point, despite the fact that he is one of the Badgers winningest quarterbacks ever. I'll still cheer for him though.

4) Brett Favre will not throw an interception. I'll predict 3 passing touchdowns, as the Packers have no running game, and the vikings have only allowed a few rushing touchdowns all year.

5) Packers 27, Vikings 13

I don't know, it seemed innocent enough. It's not like he planned it out ahead of time. The flag waving guy just happened to be running in the end zone right past where Johnson was standing. But I suppose, if that become the regular celebration I probably would not like it so much.

It doesn't really matter if you like it or not, it was against the rules and should've drawn a penalty. You can argue that the rule is stupid and I'll readily agree, but he used a prop so there should've been a flag. How do you know that it wasn't planned out?

Personally, I would have preferred Ohio St. to have won. Now, no Big Ten team with contend for the National Title.

Also, if Michigan beats Ohio St., the Big Ten has a potentially embarrasing situation on their hands. Because of the way the BCS works, each of the BCS conferences get an automatic bid for their Conference Champions. If Michigan wins, that means that a team that lost to a 1-AA will be in the BCS. Also, Michigan has three losses, so if they beat Ohio State that means a 3 loss team will be in the BCS. I don't know if this will or won't lead to anything, but my fear is that they change the rule so that being a conference champ doesn't mean an automatic bid. I don't necessarily think that each conference champ should get an automatic bid, but it could be a potentially embarrasing scenario for the Big Ten if a rule change like this is caused by the Big Ten. The Big Ten has seemingly been on a slow downword spiral in recent years, and this could be a big blow to the National reputation of Big Ten football.

NFL Films Game preview

I like the line "Minnesota's first rate run defense won't be needed in Green Bay; the Packers rank dead last in rushing yards." How's that for sticking it to 'em. The Packers can come back with some lame trash talk that actually turns into more of an insult to themselves: "You guys have the best rushing defense? Well good for you because we can't run the ball anyway."

I can't belive we're like 6 years into the existence of this site and comments like this are still being made.
Where exactly is all this ripping on Favre that needs to be defended?

Hold on a sec. I'm going to make a statement. Adrian Peterson has never won the NFL MVP award and he has fumbled more times than I'd like.

"Why would you rip on Adrian Peterson, Jon?!! Let me list reasons why he is a great player because you obviously have nothing but hatred for him and I take that personally..."

OK, here's another statement. Michael Jordan missed a lot of shots in the later years of his career.

"Jon why do you keep insulting Jordan? He was a very accomplished player! Stop bashing him and his game! You must just hate him because you love the Utah Jazz so much."

Finally, another statement: BretT Favre's cold-weather stats are true, yet easily explainable if you think about it. Also, it doesn't necessarily mean his stats haven't suffered or won't suffer because of the cold.

"WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHY must you slander Breet Ferve and his family's good name! He's the best ever!!!! Why must you insist that he's an awful person! He does not kick puppies for fun, so take that back!"

Begin unneccessary "defense" of Favre........................now!

He's saying it's gotten to the point where comments like "The Packers might not be able to pass as well in the cold" and "Brett Farve lacks the ability to fly or travel through time" is viewed as "Favre bashing" and a personal attack on not only Brett Favre as a human being, but as a personal attack on every packer fan.

I started to do this but 2005 and 2006 his numbers actually were down so I quit instead of facing the truth. I could only find splits by season which was annoying and I didn't really want to know that badly.

I'm pretty sure Brett Favre can travel through time. How else do you explain this year?

Ok, I did some serious number crunching here. I took every Packer home game from 1995 to the present played in November, December, and January, (herein being refered to as the "late months"), Playoffs included. That's exactly 60 games. I'm looking specifically at Favre's stats here. Here's what I have come up with.

From 1995 to 1998 the Packers went 20-0 at home in the late months. Favre completed 64% of passes, 50 TD, 18 INT, 4986 (250/game) Yards, QB Rating of 104.5. (9 games of 3 TDs or more)

From 1999 to 2002 (including 1 2003 playoff game) (21 games total), the Packers went 14-7. Favre completed 58%, 30 TD, 25 INT, 4869 Yards (231/game), Rating of 78.1 (1 game with 3 TDs or more)

From 2003 to 2006 (19 games), the packers went 11-8. Favre completed 60%, 21 TD, 29 INT, 4047 Yards (213/game), and QB rating of 70.1 (2 games of 3 TDs or more)

In Favre's 249 game career, he has averaged 240.6 yards per game, completed 60.1% of his passes, and has a career QB rating of 85.3.

Overall, The Packers are 45-15 in the late months since 1995, Favre has a QB rating of 83.4, and has thrown for an average of 231 yards per game. Clearly he was at his best from 1995 to 1998, and has been on a decline ever since. There is no doubt that his age, and the talent of the Packer team around him has affected how he has performed.

Coming from a Favre-worshipper, it is tempting to try and schew the stats to show some way that he is still lights out at home in cold weather, but I can't. They still have more wins than losses at home in the late months throughout his career, but Favre's personal numbers have dropped over the course of his career. I mean come on, people do get old sometimes.

Apparently I can't upload Excel files. Man, did I make a dandy of an Excel file to come up with those stats. I also had to enter the QB rating formula into Excel. Boy was that a pain.

I suppose I could save my Excel file as a CSV text file and you could just download it and open it up for yourselves, but I doubt anyone would go through the effort, so I won't either.

If you really want it, maybe i'll email it to you, or burn you a disk and mail it to you, or text you every stat that I put in there, game by game.

The Big Ten has been down but just off the top of my head I think the Badgers have like 5 bowl game [win]s in a row or something like that. They've been one of the best teams as far as keeping the rep of the conference up. I just wish they would've done better this season. The defense was really kind of a let down considering that they were better last year and they returned 9 starters. A bowl game win would make it all ok though.

I guess I was probably hoping OSU would win, but maybe an easier bowl game matchup and a win would end up being better than a championsip game and another loss. I still hope they beat Michigan next week though.

They lost the Outback Bowl to Georgia in Jan of 2005 (I was at that game). But other than that, I think you are right about them winning a whole bunch of bowl games. I think Alverez was 7-2 in bowl games 2nd best record ever for coaches with at least 7 bowl games.

From Page 2. I think this is well said, and worth reading:

Scott Wrote - 11/11/2007 @ 06:39:55 AM
STAY CLASSY, MINNESOTA
Two years ago, Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf had a 77-page Code of Conduct manual distributed to all of his players. The manifesto was in response to the now-infamous boat party scandal, in which an alleged 17 members of his team rented a yacht and a handful of prostitutes.

Wilf was livid. He apologized on behalf of the franchise and said that, from this day forward, the Minnesota Vikings would be an organization of class, decency, respect and goodness.

Blah, blah, blah, blah.

Thursday afternoon it was reported that the Vikings -- franchise of class, decency, respect and goodness -- were docking wide receiver Troy Williamson his $25,588 check for missing last Sunday's victory over the San Diego Chargers. Why? Because Williamson had the audacity to defy his employer and return home to Aiken, S.C., to attend the funeral of his beloved maternal grandmother, Celestine.

In the heartless world of professional football, where teams talk of being "one big family" yet willingly cut "family" members on a second's whim, this one takes the cake. Vikings coach Brad Childress said the move was based on a "business principle," noting how Vikings defensive tackle Pat Williams and Colts receiver Reggie Wayne had recently managed to play in games despite the death of close relatives.

The translation of Childress' jarringly heartless take is clear: Troy, act like a man. Well, from this perspective true manhood -- true leadership -- is standing up and doing the right thing at the hardest time. It would have been easy for Williamson to stay in Minneapolis and adhere to the wishes of his bosses. Instead, he displayed remarkable perspective for a 24-year-old still trying to establish himself.

Years from now, Troy Williamson would have long forgotten the Chargers game. But would he have ever forgiven himself for failing to bid farewell to the woman who helped raise him?

Yesterday they gave the money back. Not because Williamson complained, but because everyone in the media wrote articles much like that one. I agree with the article. There's far worse things you could do to miss a game. Playing professional football is still a job, and when someone close to you dies, I think that takes priority. Not only was he grieving, but he was the one making all the arrangements for his family (some who were in the military and overseas) to get to the funeral.

How long before we see Koy Detmer today? He went into Lambeau a few years back and lit the Packers up! Honestly, I hope Bollinger plays the whole game and throws a few passes here and there in between AP runs. Going to be tougfh against a good packers D, who I am sure will be keying on AP. No way a Brooks Bollinger led team can beat a Brett Favre led team in Lambeau, I predict Packers 20, Vikings 17. Hope I am wrong though!

A Spergon Wynn led team came close in 2001, and Bollinger is a better QB than Wynn.

let me guess, 1 is the Robinson catch on the first drive of the game where he scooted forward for a first down after not being touched. The other is probably the pass interefence call where the Vikings DB skidded to a halt cutting off the WR route and the WR ran into him. Clearly a conspiracy is in the works.

If the ball is 15 yards down field and 5 yards out of bounds you can.

The only reason the ball was 15 yards down field was because the DB cut off his route.

Was the ball out of bounds? And if so, was it out by that far that he wouldn't have caught it? I'm pretty sure Brett Favre can use his mind to curve the ball back anyway.

That's like if I jumped out in front of a car and then complained that I got hit. Sure, drivers have to be aware not to hit anybody, but sometimes its the pedestrian's fault and there was nothing the driver could do.

But...the call wasn't for the late hit. It was the hit to the helmet. Although to be fair, the guy who was called for the penalty was the 2nd guy to actually hit Favre.

But it was Favre's late slide that caused whatever head contact that happened. That's why I don't think contact to the head should be called unless the player being hit standing upright. Otherwise the defender aims for the midsection, the QB ducks or slides and then the defender gets called for it.

Probably true. Which would be a good reason to possibly review the rule in the offseason. I don't really have anything more to say about this. I just wanted to continue the cool quote thing. It looks neat with this many quotations.

It's not cold. That was the whole point of my "personal attack on Favre" is that passing is harder to do in the cold, but it wont be despite being under 40 all week. It's 54 in GB right now.


I noticed this originally said "It's 54". Then I checked weather.com, thinking that you were simply referring to the Temp in Eau Claire. Then looking again, I think you realized the possibility for confusion and you changed it. Good heads up comment editing. Although about 10 seconds too late.

If the Vikings at some point in the Childress regime ever throw to or past the yardage they need for a 1st down I'll throw a party for everyone.

I clarified that while I was adding something else. Besides it's not like it's going to be 54 in Eau Claire and 29 in Green Bay.

They took a kick/punt returner at like #9 or something this year. Maybe they'll take a punter #1 over all next year.

Our fox channel is advertising a Packer/Viking game for next week, I can't wait!
I was worried we'd get either the Bears game or the Lions game, but we're getting the Cowboys/Giants game. I'm actually happy about that.

It's a common answer I have to give the clients I talk to at work (via the phone). Unless it's something simple, we only provide support for our software system. If it's something with their hardware that isn't related to our software, we should not (and usually cannot) help them with it. I could write a book about all the unusual, and pretty stupid things I get asked when people call in for tech support. An contrary to popular belief (if that's what you believe) I actually like the stupid questions, because it almost always provides a good laugh to my co-workers.

Did you see Tony Romo duck for apparently no reason right before he flipped that ball into the endzone. That was crazy. I don't know who to root for in this game. On one hand, I think I want the Giants to beat the Cowboys because then the Packers would be in first place in the NFC. On the other hand, I might prefer to keep the Giants out of the picture as far home-field advantage and/or first round bye is concerned in the playoffs. All of this, of course, is assuming that the Packers actually are for real.

One Packer writer (probably the most legitimate of any Packers beat writer, he's no homer is what I'm getting at) Bob McGinn, says that he would not be surprised to see the Packers finish the season 14-2 or even 15-1.

You should save some of them up for an article or something. Tech support stories are some of the better things on the internet.

I guess the league was trying to talk the Packers into playing on Sunday night next week as part of the flexible scheduling. The Packers refused because of the fact that they play the Thursday night game, it would give them even less time to prepare for the game.

Brett Favre is good. Or do the Vikings suck that much. That had to be the most pathetic performance I have ever seen from a football team. Green Bay just totally dominated in every part of the game.
