Panthers 10 @ Vikings 20

jeremy.jpg
Jeremy
I think it's gotten to the point where instead of listing players as "Out 4-6 weeks" or "Suspended 2 games" they should just start saying "Out until the Viking game" and cut out the confusion.

I'm torn on how I feel about Gus Frerotte getting the start. On one hand there's a good chance the Vikings could have 2 wins, almost assuredly would have 1, if there was the tiniest of improvements at QB. On the other hand, that's really the best we can hope for.

I can't help but feel a little bit like T-Jack is getting thrown under the bus. Two close games against 2 teams that are expected to be near the top of their conferences and you're out?
matt.jpg
Matt
Is Jeff George still available?
sarah.jpg
Sarah
Panthers have been impressive I think. I don't think T-Jack was the problem, which is why it's going to be hilarious when the Vikings lose35-3.
jon.jpg
Jon
Say what you will about the Vikings, at least they're keeping me interested. I mean, it's like opening week all over again. Except they're down two games.

Cowboys 27 @ Packers 16

jeremy.jpg
Jeremy
While this one might be a good test for the Packers, I'm not so sure it's the test for Rodgers everyone is making it out to be. Those Eagle receivers were open by 5 yards on every other play.
matt.jpg
Matt
I slept through the Cowboys/Eagles game last week, and I don't even regret it. Football sucks. Cowboys 32, Packers 17.
sarah.jpg
Sarah
We have a fairly decent defense and an ok offense. If we can just hold the Cowboys to a little less than 41 points, we should come out on top. Remember when the Cowboys never had to play at Lambeau? Grrrr....
jon.jpg
Jon
Well, we all know ARod owns the Cowboys so I expect a blowout of 87-0.
Actually I think T.O. scores twice and the Packers lose.

Jets 29 @ Chargers 48

jeremy.jpg
Jeremy
Life as a Charger fan must suck these last couple weeks. The AFC is rough, and losing two weeks in a row at the last second, one of them a terrible break on an inadvertent whistle, isn't going to help your Superbowl chances any.
matt.jpg
Matt
I just saw a commercial where Al Michaels said that he didn't think anyone had more fun playing QB than Tony Romo. I guess all the offseason drama must have affected Brett Favre's football enjoyment ability.
sarah.jpg
Sarah
I have no games to watch on Sunday afternoon now that the Jets are on Monday night and the Packers play Sunday night. I might be forced to watch the Vikings game!?!?! Go Brett go!
jon.jpg
Jon
The only question here is how many interceptions the Chargers will return for a touchdown. Odds are, it's zero. But would you be surprised if it's 3?

Here's what people are saying about Rodgers. Being a backup for 3 seasons seems to have been a big reason why this "rookie" QB is not playing like a rookie. With all the talk of these "tests" for Rodgers, we can all agree that this game against the Cowboys is absolutely going to be a test, not just of Rodgers, but for the Packers offense. The first two games were against pretty suspect defenses. The Cowboys are a powerhouse. This is going to be a pretty good indication of what we can expect from Rodgers and the Packers for the rest of the season.

My favorite quote from the link I posted:
To summarize: Wrong alignment. Unintended receiver. Touchdown. Some might call it lucky, but it stemmed from a cool and well-schooled quarterback making a snap decision you wouldn't expect from a first-year starter.

He was talking about the touchdown pass to James Jones, where Brandon Jackson lined up in the wrong side of the formation, Donald Lee was in the wrong spot and coming in motion, Greg Jennings was the intended receiver in the corner of the end zone, and Jones basically just got in the way and caught the ball.

Jeremy was a pretty badass WR when we played. Of course, there was always the Carl Special, but I was a never- used RB type of fella.

You forgot to mention screaming like a lunatic. That was essential, as the Defense stopped for a full 2 seconds thinking "What the hell?"

What's to befuddle? The Vikings were a consistently good team for years. Besides that, it's not even an "opinion" based ranking system.

The Vikings won the NFL/NFC Central 16 times, nearly half the time, and made the playoffs 7 times as a wildcard. The Packers won it 6 times in 34 years (3 thanks to Favre, 1 in the strike shortened year).

I understand that, but what I don't get is how a team can be ranked so "high" and not have anything to show for it. Look at the Packers- not in the top ten, but winners of 3 out of what, 4 superbowls? Befuddling.

I guess it depends what you mean by "nothing to show for it," they have "not sucking" to show for rarely sucking.

If you call (pardon my sailor-speak) playoff blueballs something to show, then yes, they do.

I know the time restraint hurts, the Packers look a little more ordinary when you factor out their 1814 "championship" victories over the "Appleton Scallywags"

Well the problem is, much of the time early on at least, they had to face those teams in the top 6 in their prime.

Packers are 1-1. I guess it depends what you mean by "nothing to show for it," they have "not sucking" to show for rarely sucking.


Another attempt to re-write history by claiming that the first two SuperBowls didn't count.


edit: since the merger, I see.

I want to be able to choose my starting year. I wasn't born until 81, so I really don't care about the years before that, and I think the first Super Bowl I remember was 89, so I want to see what the rankings look like starting with the 89 season, because from there forward are the only years I really care about.

The Packers would definitely be higher on that list, although I couldn't believe they didn't have any of the 25 most crushing playoff loses before and I insist that some get added if we start from 89. TO TD, 4th and 26, Eli freaking Manning stars in 3rd Tynes the Charm, Favre throws 6 TDs (to the Rams!)

1998 season, game took place in 1999.

It was the season the Packers lost in the playoffs on the "OWENS! OWENS! OWENS! HE CAUGHT IT! HE CAUGHT IT! HE CAUGHT IT!" play, following Rice's non-fumble fumble. (Which I assume is the "TO TD" Alex mentioned)

Packers line play on both sides of the ball doomed them. Rodgers was so-so and winged a few wild ones, but it's not like Romo really outplayed him either, Romo just didn't get sacked as much and the Cowboys ran the ball better. Grant has looked bad this year, and I don't want to hear about how teams are gearing up to stop the run cause Favre isn't in there, he just seems to be a step slower than he was last year, maybe he's still not 100% healthy (fingers crossed).

That's just how good the cowboys are...they can make some mistakes and still win...the first two weeks rogers played against the worst two passing defenses in the league last year. Now he had to play a real team and lost. Thats how far behind they are. No discredit to the packers though, rogers is just gonna get better but he still has a lot to learn. We have a good running game with marion and jones in the backfield...i don't think anybody can stop us this year. We have the best qb, kicker, punter, recievers, tight end, defensive end...should i keep going...but i surely don't care what the cowboys do in the season...its all about the playoffs!!!!!!!!

The question of whether the Packers were to be considered one of the NFL elite teams was just answered. They didn't look that horrible, necessarily, and the Cowboys didn't exactly look that outstanding. But the Cowboys not playing their best beat the Packers handily.

Well then, the Packers have nothing to worry about, since the Cowboys can't win a playoff game no matter what the situation.

They put up 9 points, at home, and were losing by 18 before Dallas went into "Let them score, just make them take time" mode. In the same time span the Packers put up 9 points the Eagles put up 30, on the road. Rodgers was indecisive and fairly inaccurate, probably stemming from being under pressure all night, and getting sacked 5 times. Indeed, Dallas didn't look like they were setting the world on fire, but the Packers did look pretty bad.

I don't know, I never had the feeling that "man, these guys are playing horrible." It just seemed more like the Cowboys were just that much better. The Packers' defense actually put a fair amount of pressure on Romo from time to time, but clearly it wasn't consistent and their run defense was a joke. It's hard to read too much into anything in this game, because it might just be that Rodgers needs more experience and the Cowboys are just that good. Heck, maybe the Packers are that bad. Rodgers seemed to have open receivers only about 3 times, 2 of which resulted in long completions. The Cowboys just played better. Disappointing, no doubt, but I don't think it's something to get too worried about.

As far as the Eagles comparison, Westbrook is practically a one-man offense and Grant/Jackson isn't nearly the same threat out of the backfield, so when the Cowboys knew that the Packers had to pass the Packers couldn't give Rodgers much time because the Cowboys didn't respect the run or catch from the RB position. What I take from that is the Packers will not be making too many comebacks if they get down multiple scores this year, which is why settling for 3 field goals pretty much ended the game right there, unless Romo gave them some more free points.

That's not true, all we found out is that the Cowboys are right now. Injuries didn't help the cause. We got out coached a bit though.

Ruptured spleen? Yikes. As for the game, it was pretty gosh darn shoddy. Our offense couldn't string anything together and were barely on the field and our defense forgot entirely about Jason Witten. Our defense is now officially banged up more than it might possibly be able to survive. With Harris out, I think that's going to change the way we play. Plus, Woodson has a broken toe, Collins could be out for a bit, and Bigby didn't even play yesterday. Let's see how tonight goes before I entirely blame Rodgers.emoticon

I knew CB was going to be a problem. Despite the broken toe Woodson has been the man (TO = shut down, as opposed to when he torched Harris last year) which means whoever is on the other side is going to get bombarded repeatedly until they prove to other teams that they can play. And getting pwned by Miles Austin is not going to help. As far as Witten having a big game, missing Bigby certainly didn't help that situation.

Yea u know the cowboys figured out rogers after a couple quarters. all the packers were doing was throwing those rinky-dinky 5 yard passes and they couldn't go deep at all. our recievers didn't do all that great. they stopped TO because they double teamed him every play and crayton did nothing at all. witten and austin were the only ones cayching anything. then we have marion who is a monster and F. Jones who is super fast which killed the packers. of course romo didn't have a good game but he didn't have too. I wasn't shocked the packers didn't do much but the cowboys should have whipped them by like 30.

back on this packer cowboy game, it looked simple to me really..... grant/ jackson got shut out by the cowboy D, pressure was all on rodgers to make the plays = 3 field goals in 3 quarters... I dont think it was all on rodgers.... the cowboys Defense is pretty good, but i just wish we could have found a way to run the ball if we would have, less pressure on rodgers = big plays.... the the packers D had all those injuries so i mean thats perfectly explainable..... but if u wanna say rodgers sucked u might as well say romo sucked as well.... the only difference i saw in both the QB's was basically their choices as far as recievers go, and their opposing defenses. Romo made the TD pass because we didnt have harris to take austin, and they had a running game to take pressure off romo..... as far as circumstances are considerned rodgers had the better game.... but w/e

Here's my question for anyone watching the Monday night game. Specifically the second half.
Did the guys in the booth ever notice/mention that Favre was limping out there? I watched a lot of the second half, when he got hurt and was limping, but I never heard them mention it, and when Favre was sitting out at the end they said, well they didn't want him to get hurt, but they never mentioned that he already was a bit.

I can't say I watched every second of the game, that's why I'm asking if anyone did hear it, but from the way they were talking, it sounded like that whole thing completely got missed by them. If so, it was classic modern sportscasting, where they have tons of information and stories and banter, but miss something blatently obvious. I mean, maybe they don't watch favre as closely as we do, but it was obvious after multiple plays.

They did mention it at the end. (I mean literally the end, as Favre limped off the field.) It seems impossible for them to miss something like this, yet it happens all the time. It's not like it has to be noticed by the guys in the booth to get noticed.
