Raji Still Fanning The Flames

Tell it, big man!

The Green Bay Packers went into Atlanta and handled the Falcons for the second time in a row last night.

There was a war of words leading up to the game, with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers saying he felt disrespected when Falcons receiver Roddy White said the better team lost, after the Packers mauled the Falcons in the playoffs last season.

Packers nose tackle B.J. Raji reiterated what we all knew after the game — the Packers are the better team.

“We have better players, we have better coaches, we’re a better team,” Raji said after the Packers (5-0) rallied from a 14-0 deficit – and did so without both their starting offensive tackles – to score the final 25 points of the game to beat the Falcons (2-3). “Usually better teams win games. We settled down and played our game, and we won.”

“It’s definitely another dagger in their chests,” Raji continued. “They’ve been talking the whole offseason, they were talking before the game. We don’t worry about that. We’re the champions. We play like champions. We coach like champions. People who talk generally don’t get to where they want to go. And obviously with this team, it’s evident.”

You can say Raji is pouring salt in the wound and you’d be correct.

You can say Raji’s comments aren’t very classy and you’d have an argument.

What you can’t say, after two consecutive victories in the Falcons’ house, is Raji is wrong.

    Falcants and their delusion fans deseve all the shit the Pack and their faithful can shovel their way. Living in Atlanta I’ve had to listen to the better team crap for three games, (2010 reg and post season and last night). Now maybe, just maybe, they’ll stop running their mouths and realize that their primary goal for 2011 is to keep from finishing at the bottom of the NFC South and fulfilling their destiny of First to Worst.

      Falcons fans are quickly becoming the Vikings fans of the south. Run their mouth, live in fairy-tale land and have never won shit. Oh, and btw, Matty Ice! Oooooooh! He’s so imposing at home!

        Just heard that an Atlanta restaurant chain is introducing a new sandwich – The Matty Melt. Looks good when it’s first served, but after 15 minutes and a few bites it turns into a pile of shit right before your eyes.

    This is one of the greatest comments of all time. It should be framed in gold and hung above the tunnel leading to the field at the Rodgers (Georgia) Dome.

    “Now that we abused them, for the second time in a row, at their home, there’s nothing really to do,” Raji said. “If they want to play us again, tell them to come up to Lambeau. That’s it. That’s how we’re doing it.”

    What’s the difference between a dollar and the Vikings…
    You can get 4 quarters out of a dollar.

  6. Do you know how packer fans celebrate a victory? They get naked, position themselves behind one another, and form a large circle so that everyone gets a dick up their ass!

    “We’re the champions. We play like Champions. We coach like Champions.”

    Yep, I’d say BJ nailed it! Suck on that Fatlanta.

    You forgot all of this great material from the Milwaukee Journal Setinal!!

    “They have a long way to go,” Raji said of being a Packers rival. “For it to be a rivalry, you have to win meaningful games. They’re just another opponent. They have a long way to go.

    “I wouldn’t talk like this, but when people don’t respect you, I don’t take it lying down. Those people don’t respect us, so in turn I’m not going to give them any respect.”

    “Now that we abused them, for the second time in a row, at their home, there’s nothing really to do,” Raji said. “If they want to play us again, tell them to come up to Lambeau. That’s it. That’s how we’re doing it.”
