Just crown them already. I think when it's all said and done, the Vikings will need a * next to this season.

The Vikings had a bye to prepare for a home game against the one win Lions. There are about a million reasons this should be a cakewalk, which is why they'll probably lose.

Cowboys 7 @ Packers 17

No offensive line and a QB that won't throw the ball away? Not a winning combination. The Packers have made weirder comebacks in recent times, but I don't see that happening here.
jeremy.jpg
Jeremy
The Packers went 13-3 in Brett's last year there. AaRod needs to hope for 3 more wins to get 13 in his first 2 seasons. Smooth move TT.

Back in the good ole days we could expect a comment from Sarah about how much the Cowboys sucked, just because they beat the Packers once. Now, she doesn't even care enough to try. Sad times.
jon.jpg

Rodgers really needs to throw the ball out of bounds sometimes.

Patriots 34 @ Colts 35

I am actually looking forward to this game. I hope the Colts beat the snot out of Tom Brady.

Overhyped or not, this matchup is fun.

Ravens 16 @ Browns 0

sarah.jpg
Sarah
I think the Browns have been declared the worst team ever. That could be, considering the Packers beat them. (oh yea, I went there)
jeremy.jpg
Jeremy
I made this comment to Marty on facebook, but it goes perfect here: The browns were 4-12 last year and the Ravens were 11-5 and the Ravens beat the Browns by a combined 28 points last season. Who is the ad wizard who thought this game was a good idea? I mean, the teams have an interesting intertwined history, but that's not going to make this game anymore watchable/enjoyable. It'll just be something for the announcers to beat to death while the game sucks.

Matt
Same, but different!

I thought it was a documentary on Baltimore's football team, but it turns out "That's So Raven" was something completely different.

Sarah as a member of the packers fan club I herby take away your right to be a packer fan because your lack of faith is something not tolerated as being a packer fan. Packer fans like you disgust me. Did you ever think for a second that perhaps rodgers doesnt throw it away because he isnt as reckless as Favre is. Meaning he doesnt go throwing as many picks as he does Tds... Not to mention the fact Rodgers is consistent despite having a shit oline.

She said "No offensive line and a QB that won't throw the ball away? Not a winning combination." not "No offensive line and a QB that takes a sack instead of chucking the ball up in the middle of the field in desperation? Not a winning combination."

Throwing it away means throwing it out of bounds, and other such things. Until last week the Packers had 0 points on drives that Rodgers was sacked on. Now, granted, the o-line has played pretty badly, and it's probably time for them to ditch their "send everyone deep and hope the pocket can hold up for 4-5 seconds" play calling and maybe call a screen pass once in a while, but Rodgers has his share of the blame. There's not a lot the team can do at this point about the o-line play. Rodgers, on the other hand, CAN learn to not take the sacks where he holds the ball an inexplicable amount of time. Whether that's been the reason for 20 sacks, or 5, it's something he can do something about, so the fact that he hasn't speaks volumes.

Also, I seriously fail to understand this concept that seems to exist only in Packerland and the red states that you can't like something, but have some criticisms of it, that anything less than a blind "everything we do is 100% totally kickin'-rad" type attitude means you need to be booted out of the club.

If the Packers still had Favre the o-line would look a lot better, because he makes quicker decisions. It's not a coincidence that the o-line was suddenly an area of concern once Rodgers took over. In fact, somewhere on here I predicted that would happen.

It also becomes sort of a self-fulfilling type thing where once the perception of a crappy o-line is out there, then people attack the weakness more. Why Rodgers/the play calling never adjusts to the "everyone on the other side of the ball is playing for or expecting a sack" defense is bizarre. There's no reason to allow Jared Allen to get 7 sacks. Either give the tackle some help, roll the pocket away from Allen, or drop a screen right behind him a couple times so he has to think twice. It's not rocket science, the Packers just seem to have a "we'll be damned if we're going to play anything other than our 3 to 5 WR set high flying passing game offense" demeanor.

I find last weeks display of classless bullshit a lack of respect. A lack of respect for a world-class athlete who gave so much back is something not to be tolerated. Being a packer fan [to me] is not something I can be proud of, and honestly, did anyone ever think for a second that perhaps this man deserves respect regardless of what shirt he's wearing? Come on- it wasn't his messup, it wasn't the fans, it was political head-office bullhonkey, and if anything, it should bring you closer to the player.

Give me a damned break; I'm really questioning my Packers fanhood, and this might be the proverbial straw.

EDIT- I just want to make sure you know I was pulling bits of your comment/rant and using it- in context- against you.

Think of it this way. People would argue that putting a tackle and a tight end on Ware next week on every play is the waste of a player, but you're talking about a team that allows 4.63 sacks per game, and usually more when there's a stud DE on the opposition. Let's assume 5-7 sacks wouldn't unreasonable for the team with the 11th most. Let's then say that the extra blocking cuts that to 2 sacks, and the average yards lost on a sack is 7 yards. That's 21 to 35 yards saved right there, where any yardage gained by not getting sacked is a bonus. The Packers average 8.6 yards pre attempt, so that's 26 to 43 yards. (Not to mention the fact that obviously turning -7 into 8.6 does more than just effect where you are in the field, the reduced chance of a strip/fumble, Rodgers getting hurt, the momentum/morale reasons, etc.)

All totaled that's 47 to 78 more yards. I would think that's a pretty decent day for a tight end, even if he isn't the one catching the ball.

Officially a member? Where's your badge? How can you not be frustrated with the moves made by the Packers' upper management? Rodgers is consistent alright... consistently bad. Sure, he's got the highest QB rating, but those numbers don't tell everything, especially when you watch every week and it's the same ol' crap, just a different day. He hasn't been able to get rid of the ball, even when he's got like 8 seconds to do the deed.

On a side note... kudos on the post, you've come a long way!

I think we need to give Favre some credit or > some credit. A-Rod would not have us at a 7-1 record.

You know the Packers can't run, but you can't just go balls-to-the-wall after Favre either because he can burn you hitting his hot route. A young inexperienced QB would be more apt to freeze up and take a sack.

Ok, I'm finally here. I know you've all been waiting for me to set the record straight once and for all, so here I go:

There are ultimately two things that are plaguing the Packers offense: sacks and dropped passes. Dropped passes are not as significant, but Packer receivers seem to be dropping passes at an alarming rate this year. For a young quarterback, there can't be much good for his confidence when your receivers drop touchdown passes that hit them in the numbers. It has happened too much this year, and clearly it has hurt the Packers.

On to the real plague, though: sacks. It is no secret that Rodgers takes a sack here and there. The O-line clearly has some major issues that must be worked out eventually, but midway through the season is probably no time to expect drastic improvements in pass protection. However, I don't necessarily see this as a problem that can't be overcome. Most of the sacks Rodgers takes are not "holy crap the defense was there in a hurry" type of sacks. A lot of them are what you might call "coverage sack", where Rodgers is back in the pocket for 5, 6, 7 seconds, hopping around looking for an open guy, and eventually the pocket breaks down and he's done. This is frustrating for several reasons. One is that often time in these cases, the replay shows that there WAS an open receiver, if even for a split second. Rodgers is slow to make decisions, which is very apparent when you watch him overlook open receivers and eventually take a sack.

Another reason why this is so frustrating because Rodgers is a mobile quarterback, the like of which the Packers haven't had in a long time. Rodgers is fast and agile. Once he gets moving outside the pocket, he can make plays with his feet. He scrambled on 3rd and long against the Bucs on Sunday, pump faked a few times even after crossing the line of scrimmage, and powered his way in for a touchdown. Knowing this ability, you have to wonder what is holding him back so often. Considering that his sacks are generally 5, 6, 7 seconds, he has time to decide that the pass isn't there. It's really got to be 1, 2, 3, go!. If you can't find someone after 3 seconds, run. This too may be part of his slow decision making process, which may be why he doesn't do it more. But, when he does do it, he seems to be at his very best. The third Qtr against the Vikings at Lambeau should be a good example of this. The whole first half he seemed to never leave the pocket and it showed. In the third qtr, he "panicked" a little sooner, moved outside the pocket more, even ran for a bunch of yards, and the Packers put up 17 points. Heck, he had the ball with a chance to take the lead at one point even.

My whole point is this: Rodgers seems to have weaknesses in the area of slow decision making, which leads to staying in the pocket too long and taking too many sacks. If he would use one of his best assets, his legs, he could get out of a lot more jams and will make plays. Again, as Jeremy alluded to, the coaching needs to recognize this. Call more roll-out plays. Run routes that are designed for a scrambling QB. Run away from the all-pro defense end (you are probably faster than him anyway).

There, I think we all can hold hands again and sing the happy song.

Matt: I will renew my objection to commenting on NFL Network games in which neither the Packers nor the Vikings are playing in.

0 for 1 in the "not including an extra 'in'" department.

Sorry JFK, blind loyalty is simply naivety. I know most people would be able to sit by and abide abuse, but I am not Stockholm- I have feelings, and when someone blatently abuses my trust I tend to not like them so much. Or much at all.

Yet, here I am, watching the game, remembering the days when I willingly cheered for Emmit and his 'boys against the Pack, much to the chagrin of my family. Go Packers, and may God have mercy on my soul.

To all packer fans who dislike my comments about calling them unloyal treasonous basterds, that may have been a bit harsh, but its the plain truth. TO all packer fans who will like to be true packer fans once more. By the way Sarah, quit being such a critic of the packers, you have no right because thats left to true packer fans, until you write the packer oath of allegiance, and swear by it, you are not to be a true packer fan. You will just be another anti packer talking their smack.

To be a packer fan you must,

Recite the pledge of the true packer fan
Always pick the packers unless they lose 6 in a row.
Show packer spirit once every month by wearing something green bayish every week during football season regardless wether they are on a bye week
the above rule only applies during regular season, but can apply during playoffs if they make it.


For all packer fans who have been dismembered by me, James F. Kohn, Member of the packerfan club, must do penance by reciting, or typing, the packer pledge of alligence:


I am a packer fan and the greatest team in the world of the National Football League are the green bay packers. I will not critize the packers in public unless there are reasonable reasons in which to do so. I will always pick the packers when it comes to nutcan.com and I will stick up for the Packers organization unless they are to lose 6 games in a row. If I do not abide by these rules and regulations I am subject to be kicked out by a fellow member of the packerfan club organization and will be held accountable for my own actions.

In addition you will be required to recite, or type this 3 times.

I am sorry Coach McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers, and all members of the Green Bay Packers football team for ever insulting you or doubting your abilities, it is my imperfections that have caused this and I do hope that you see through them and accept me back into your good wishes.


After doing the following I will reinstate you into the Packer Fanclub organization.

people who have been banned are:

Sarah
Carlos44ec
Scott
Jamey
Packone
Alex

If jfk has banned me from packer-fanhood, he obviously has not read a single word of anything I have ever written in the history of this site, especially in the post Favre era. I think I'm glad to be banned from whatever club he's referring to. Being banned from that club might be the best accomplishment of my sport-fan career.

On further review, sometimes it's simply a shame that we can only "X" a comment one time.

Execution-wise, the Packers played a very solid game. Rodgers was sacked 4 times, but really, one 1 of those was one of the "get rid of the ball" type sacks, so on that front, Rodgers improved a lot. What has to be addressed is the penalties, and I again say that McCarthy has to do something about it. Sarah mentioned that she thinks the Packers have lost respect for McCarthy and that maybe that's why there are so many penalties. I do think there is some truth to this. I don't know the statistics, but in the Holmgren era, the Packers were not a team that lead the league in penalties. I think a big part of that is players knowing that if they do something stupid like jump offsides multiple times in a game or headbutt a player, they will have to answer to someone on the sidelines. Holmgren seemed to instill that "fear" into his players. It does seem that McCarthy's players don't have that discipline, and MCarthy needs needs needs to do something to change the mentality of his players. An occasional holding call or block in the back or something is pretty much expected. But when you have multiple pre-snap penalties and personal fouls, those are inexusable, and I think those types of penalties are on the coach as much as the players. Again, McCarthy, you put together a very good game against a hot team. You figured out a way to get into Rodgers head and get him to move and throw the ball. Keep tightening up the ship.

Without getting too excited about one game, Super Bowl teams can be the result of teams getting hot at the right time. Maybe it took the packers 8 games to figure somethings out and now they can make their run. But then again, this is just one game and they are now just two games away from losing to a winless team.

Lol.... ok scott... i guess my Sarcasm isnt appreciated by you or any other members. Its just funny how all of you guys, including my dad, ruled out the packers, however I felt as if the packers were going to win today. I had the fact that rodgers HAS THE BEST PASSER RATING IN THE NFL. and that the packers were 4th on defense. This combo makes me think it is highly likely that rodgers will have a good day, with a couple of sacks, get past this cowboy Defense ONLY BECAUSE the packers Defense gives them the momentum to do so. I thought this packers defense would give romo alot of pressure, which would lead to sacks, which would lead to inaccuracy, which would lead to interceptions, which would lead to turnovers, which would lead to a good chance in field position, which would lead to a win. Thats what I thought in my head when I picked the pack over the cowboys. Obviously I didnt say that but approached it rather sarcastically, and obviously we dont have a sense of humor in here. But hey thats cool, I can be quite technical and refer to stats and blame McCarthy and give a nice long review of the game in a boring fashion, but if I wanted to do that I would do that in newspapers and I do do it in newspapers when talking about politics. However I think we can only X a comment one time because there are certain people who go overboard with their remarks. There is no fan club I belong to. Everyone is entitled to be a fan of whatever they want to be. I have read what you wrote on your site scott and your more of a tough love packer fan, which is okay. I just simply stated you on the banned list because you were part of the packer mob that voted against them. Nothing against your record. I hope this puts me back on santa's good boy list because god forbid I piss anyone off on this website. pffff.

You didn't "use your head" to pick the Packers!!! You pick the Packers every week. I'm ok with that, but get off your damn high horse about those of us that actually think critically about the teams we watch. Some of us may be overly critical (I am not one of those) but at least I can't accuse them of not thinking about it. Those packer fans who are somewhat negative might be so out of emotion, but your over-enthusiaticness is based on the exact same emotion with little regard anything else. Don't accuse us of not thinking. The cowboys were on a 4 game winning streak and the Packers lost to a winless team last week. Using your ever thoughtful analysis, what combination of those two things made your picking the packers any more valid than our not picking the packers? A fan that can pick against his/her own team is evidence of a thoughtful fan much more than one who picks his team every week, especially when that team is a .500 team.

Well, if you click on your name by your picks, it shows you've picked against the Packers 7 (or 8, not sure if what I was looking @ was through yesterday and I'm too lazy to look now) and I'd picked against 8 times (or 9). I've had a longer span though to pick against them.

Yeah, if you factored that in, I think I'm on top.

edit:
I pick the Packers 88% (52 for, 7 against) of the time, Sarah picks the Packers 94% (119 for, 8 against) of the time.
