Packers XLV

Random Thoughts While Sitting in Pressbox...

Posted October 24th, 2010 @ 11:10pm

...about an hour before kickoff. Not sure any of you will even be visiting the blog this close to kickoff, but I need to burn some calories and write something. Had a lot of fun walking around the stadium a couple of hours before kickoff. Amazingly festive and more Clay Matthews jerseys than you would believe.

Can't overstate how big this game is for Pack. A win moves them into a tie for first in the weak North. A loss makes it three Ls in a row and they'll be underdogs next week in New York. Going to focus on Bryan Bulaga to see if he can handle Ray Edwards. That's a tough matchup for Bulaga--I hope McCarthy/Philbin gives him help if he needs it.

A quick start is essential for the Pack. The Vikings have started amazingly slowly in the last few games and the Packers have finished amazingly slowly the past few games. Jumping out to a lead will cause Childress to rely more on Favre's arm and that will definitely be a shot in the arm for the Pack's D. Speaking of which, the return of Matthews, Pickett and Chillar is huge. They'll have nine opening day starters on the field tonight.

Offensively, this game needs to belong to Rodgers. He's been hearing he can't win close games, he can't deliver the knockout blow. Here's his chance to answer, under the prime time lights.

I'll be tweeting throughout the game from the pressbox and my post-game blog will be up shortly after the final gun. Must. Win. Tonight.

Wow you read it TWO days ago? YOU ARE AWESOME since the interview didn't air until yedsertay. Can I borrow your time machine to go back to that Giants game at Lambeau in 2007 & put Rodgers in the game right around the end of the 4th quarter? If we'd actually made it to the Super Bowl that year, then maybe Favre would've retired with a little dignity. Maybe then he wouldn't have felt the need to shit all over a fan base that supported him through some pretty smarmy shit just to get revenge on a GM that no one will remember in 20 years. Thanks to his ego he will be a hall of famer with a legacy that has as many negatives as positives.

FYI-Rodgers wouldn't go aehrynwe near commenting on Favre's comments. Except for that he wasn't surprised it took him 3 years to win a super bowl. When the interviewer pressed him, he just made some great comments about how it takes 53 guys to win a super bowl. He wouldn't even throw Finley under the bus for whining about not getting the ball.

I think it sounds eaxtcly like the whiney, bitchy, passive-aggressive, selfish, post-Packers Favre he's been since he left for the Jets.I may love him again someday, but it's getting more difficult to see how or why when he keeps pulling nonsense like this.

I do find it hilarious how every time Brent is being heonst he makes himself look like a jerk. I really don't think Brent intended to insult anyone. He's just one of those fools that doesn't even realize what he's saying.

Why would you fake a punt on 4th and 7?

And where the hell is the red-zone D?
