    Yay! Playoffs, here we come!


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Nice back to back NFCN champ. Loved to watch the packs losing at the buzzer and Cutler stupid face after another int.

    Wrong on some accounts & dead on in others. I'll definitely eat crow on winning the division & the fact that he Favre turned the ball over a lot fewer times than I expected, but lets not forget we lost 2 of our last 3 games.

    Lest not forget Mars was the one claiming Favre would win us the SB. He has not done that as of yet, so he hasn't proven me wrong on that. In fact he backed out of his bet.

    It was NP that won the $20 bet when I said that Favre would fail to deliver us an NFCN Championship. Thanx to the Packers sucking early & the Bears sucking all year, he has done just that.

    Last nights game was yet another indication, IMO, that Favre has definitely degraded from what he was earlier in the season. Play like that will net you 1 and done in the playoffs & again IMO, that's were we are headed.

    Some may call that being Mr. Negativity, but I call it taking off the Purple shades & being Mr. Honest. That last pass of his that was thrown into coverage, while a wide open Shiancoe stood alone in the endzone (most everyone here said Favre was great at making his reads) & was intercepted in the endzone was reminiscent of his gun-slinging. Also there were passes that would support the term "noodle arm".

    I loved the Favre shovel pass to Shiancoe though. I would have thought that the tendon he had cut would have affected his ability to do so. It was beautiful.

    What has happened to the so called "quick release" most here said we would see? 31 sacks thus far doesn't support that theory. Our line is to blame for some of it, just as it was last year (many here blamed Frerotte & Jackson for it), but he has been hanging on to the ball way to long too many times & on several occasions could have, but failed to throw it away to avoid the sack.

    Favre as well as many others, need to step up their game if we want to even think about a playoff run. Favre's QB rating went from the 100's most of the year thru November, but in December he is now had 79.4, 79,2 & 79.7 respectively. That is significant & unless you are a Favre CSAer or blind, that is definitely degrading late in the season. Right Marrdro?

    We won the NFCN when the Packers lost yesterday (some here call that "backing into the playoffs, LOL) are in the playoffs & have 11 wins. That is all moot moving forward, IMO. Now it's not about how many wins you've accumulated thus far in the season, it's now about how well the team can play in December, January & hopefully February.

    We have two more weeks to figure it out. Let's hope we do.
    LOL at you coming out of the woodwork. LOL at you blaming this collapse on Favre. Where is that running game that TJ/Gus had last year? Where is that OL? These two are pathetic. Favre is a huge reason we are division champs. Where is that group that said this team without Favre is all we need to win the division and win in the playoffs. BULLSHIT!

    LOL at you focusing on that last pass. We were playing down by a ton. What about the whole game with the OL Peppers in on every fucking play. No INTs there. The OL is pathetic and so is Peterson. We will not win in the playoffs because of them not Favre. Keep blaming Favre though. You'll get thrown under the bus just as Marrdro has.

    Say all you want about Favre and his rating blah blah blah. Truth is Peterson and that OL the last four games have been pathetic. This was the 26th ranked run defense. PATHETIC! They were the 6th ranked pass D. Chew on that haters!

    Re:NFC North Division Champs!!

    Congratulations my purple friends. You obviously deserve the title this year. I guess I'll have to wash my 2007 hat yet again. (Next time we are going green instead of white on those hats...at least that is my recommendation)

    While I readily concede that you are deserving of this title, this isn't over yet, boys and girls. I will reserve comment on your game yesterday, as I have not watched it yet.

    If you didn't see our game, I'd recommend it. That last play cost me one broken desk. (fist) :S

    I want one more shot at the Vikes...Just one more...

    It doesn't look good on paper for the Pack if we get that shot, and many disagree with my desires, but I don't give a damn.

    I might get a new hat this year after all. Stranger things have happened. We may have lost yesterday, but I don't think anyone is saying that we sucked...well, at least outside of Minnesota. :P

    Anyway, congratulations, and hopefully we will be revisiting the relative merits of our respective football teams in the very near future.

    Revenge IS a dish best served cold, ya know. B)

    I watched your game with interest yesterday. ACtually picked the PUKERS on my football pool.

    How fricken good is Matthews. Damn I despise that cat.

    Wildman updated the ole Ipod the other day.

    Seems I have two CD's of some damn fine rock to get to know. On a side note, how lucky am I, he loves my old stuff and I like his taste in new stuff.

    Another new one, POD/PHOD (can't remember the spelling) has some good stuff as well. Not sure if I like some of the lyrics though. I know his mother was a bit shocked..... hmy:
