Vikings to lose by 20 so that even if they win every other game everyone will think they suck cause they sucked in the one game they saw.

So, let me get this straight, the Packers put up a record of 4-5 over a 9 game span, people take notice, then they win a couple games in a row and that means we're all supposed to apologize for ever "questioning" them? Oh, that sounds reasonable. Hey ARod, "Shhh" yourself.

What are we on, like the 27th appeal of some part of the "bounty" punishment? I feel like Goodell probably imagined it going more smoothly than this.

I assume everyone has this shaping up as a defensive battle. I think it'd be fun if it wasn't.

I'll put this out there in case Matt wants to reconsider his pick for the Jaguars-Packers game:
The Packers haven't lost a home game in which they were favored by 10 or more points since November 2001. They are favored by 13.5 points at home agains the Jaguars on Sunday.

Also, count me in the crowd that thinks the loss of Charles Woodson isn't really that big of a deal. Sure, they lose an emotional leader on the field, but I'm not convinced that he's really that irreplaceable anymore. He might have the instincts and technique that younger players lack, but instinct only goes so far when you can't keep up with the receivers you are trying to cover. Long comment short, the loss to Woodson could be a blessing in disguise. Woodson is simply not that good anymore.

Blessing in disguise seems a bit much. I mean, this could result in Bush being on the field more, which is not a blessing.

My guess is Bush won't be overplayed even with this. With the emergence of Casey Hayward, your top 3 corners are Williams, Shields, and Hayward (in no particular order), but Woodson wasn't taking up a CB spot. And even though Woodson was used as a third CB in the Nickle package, my guess is they'll use Hayward or Shields in that spot before they use Bush. His absence likely puts M.D. Jennings and Jerron McMillian up for more playing time at the safety position. Both inexperienced, but both seem to have a fair amount of upside. It'll be interesting to see what they can do. Jarrett Bush seems to be on the team still simply because he hustles on special teams. The biggest thing they lose with woodson out is leadership and experience, which aren't nothing, but they aren't everything either.

Two weeks ago, Jeremy facetiously predicted that the Packers would win by 30 against undefeated Houston, "because that would just figure". the Packers were up 25 late in the game, ending up winning by 18 only because a blocked punt resulted in a touchdown late in the game. This week, Jeremy somewhat facetiously predicts that the Vikings would lose by 20 so that people that only see the vikings because of the national broadcast would think that they suck. The Vikings ended up losing by 19. Got any stock tips you want to share with us?

In my opinion, the Cowboys didn't lose because of the 6 turnovers. No, they lost because of the utter incompetence of their offensive decision making in the last minute of the game. With just over a minute left, the Cowboys were at the Giants 19 facing a 2nd and 1 with all 3 timeouts left, and they go sideline pass (incomplete), endzone prayer (incomplete), and finally ridiculous scramble where you run backwards for 15 yards and then chuck up an interception on 4th down. You're telling me that with 1:23 left and all three timeouts you can't pick up one yard when the defense is likely looking for a pass? Run the ball to extend the drive! And then after the near miracle touchdown, Romo on the very last play throws the ball out of the back of the endzone. I mean, I was sort of pulling for the Cowboys simply because I picked them to win, but that was the most frustratingly awful minute of football I think I've ever witnessed. And it didn't that throughout the entire game Troy Aikman was sugar coating pretty much every Tony Romo did. If I was a Cowboys fan, I'd probably just stop being a football fan altogether.

I just read Jon's comment about the Packer game, and I want to offer my perspective. People might be taking notice that through the course of this current season the Packers haven't been as dominant as they were over the course of most of last season, at least offensively. The criticism that they aren't as good as last year is probably warranted, because so far they aren't showing the "we can score at will" ability as they did last year. There's probably a number of reasons why, and there's probably a number of reasons why they don't need to be and still be able to win games. All that being said, there is a lot of criticism coming the Packers way that seems to have nothing to do with on the field performance. It's coming from mostly national figures, but people are trying to fabricate story lines about Rodgers lack of leadership, or that the Packers lockerroom is crumbling, or that there is some tabloid-style fued going on between Rodgers and McCarthy. Rodgers addressed his "ssshhhhh" response afterwards by saying among other things, the post game interview was getting a little long, and he just wanted to end it, but also that the critics were were going overboard. He also said he was just tired of "answering questions about what happened to the Packers." Some of the more prominent critics for whatever reason have never liked Rodgers (Skip Bayless, and others) and seem to be salivating at the chance to find flaws in Rodgers' performance.

But whatever the reason, the critics have every right to take notice and to do what they do. But does Rodgers also not have the right respond to the critics? Frankly, I think his response was a lot classier than it could have been (it wasn't like that was the only asked one question, said "ssshhh" and then walked away). Has Rodgers said anything that should draw the ire of the media, or fans, to make them think that he's somehow above all of this? I'm not sure that he has. Currently, the team stands at 5-3, and Rodgers leads the league in touchdown passes and completion percentage, is 2nd in passer rating TD-INT ratio. And, the 3 losses includes a game against one of the best teams in the league, and another game which is nearly universally considered to have been stolen from them.

I don't remember the announcers mentioning this during the game, but the Packers blocked the punt despite only having 10 men on the field.

Packers intersted in Steven Jackson? This is a deal I could support, although I know no potential details of any possible deal. Short of a first round pick and a key player, this might be a player worth the pursuit. I've always regard Steven Jackson as possibly the most punishing runner in the NFL. He runs like it's his goal to knock as many people over as possible. He rarely gets stood up, he always seems to fall forward, he's a good teammate, and he's a good pass catcher. And, it would appear that he's fairly durable. The trade deadline has been moved back 2 days because of the hurricane, so maybe the extra time will give interested parties extra time to make a deal. I'll be curious to see if anything comes of this.
