Packers Beat the Browns – Really!?

So the Green Bay Packers beat the Cleveland Browns today by a score of 31-13. Surprising. But not really…

The Browns have become known as the Factory of Sadness. They were looking competitive when Brian Hoyer was their quartetrback. Brian Hoyer was not their quarterback on Sunday. But Aaron Rodgers was the Packers quarterback.

The Packers didn’t really give a shit that they were down to just three receivers.

They came out and started winging the ball all over the field.

We all expected an early effort to run with Eddie Lacy.

No dice.

Lacy had a solid 82 yards on the ground, but he didn’t get the majority of those yards until the second half. At that point, the Packers had the game in control.

Like we said coming into this game, Cleveland quarterback Brandon Weeden was the key. And that’s only because he’s usually horrible.

He was horrible on this day too. Weeden was 17-of-42 for 149 yards. One touch, one pick.

He couldn’t move the Browns offense.

Meanwhile, Rodgers was hitting opportune throws. Lacy was making opportune runs. Can you remember the last time the Packers ran on 3rd and 5?

I doubt it.

This was a team we were supposed to beat and we beat them soundly.

First place in the NFC North? Bring it on!

    Finley down again sure as heck didn’t look good. His 5 year old is gonna be bawling his eyes out this time.

    Oh yeah, and Jermichael Finley is now a vegetable. If it’s not a neck I jury then it is at the very least his 2nd concussion in five weeks. Not good.

    Is Weeden that bad or is our secondary that good???

    One thing I know for sure…Lattimore can play football.

      Weeden is just that bad. He’s got a rocket for an arm…but no touch, accuracy and he cannot lead his receivers or anticipate (throw to a spot). He’s not worth a damn. They will have to select another QB with a top 10 pick and hope it works out better. Or sign Christian Ponder or Matt Cassell…

    I have never been fond of FInley as a person, and tolerated him because of his playmaking ability. I still hope he is ok. Word around the campfire is it could be career ending.

      You tolerated him because of his playmaking ability? I’m curious what you think would happen if you didn’t “tolerate” him. Probably exactly what your little Favre petition is going to get you. Nothing. Get over yourself Wolfie. Also, what inner-circle campfire are you pretending to be sitting at where you think you hear reports that the team has yet to even release? Is Vijay there with you?

        Just read and article on NFL.com that said a source reported the “all signs are good” for Finley. Who knows after last weeks’ Cobb false information, but let’s hope he’s OK. Not only cause the Packers need him, but the guy also has a family.

        • Arcturus

          If it was a neck injury, why was he shaking his head so vigorously as he lay on his side after the play is what I wondered about…

        • Cheese

          His last concussion Finleys little boy told him he didn’t want him playing football anymore when he seen him stumbling around after the hit. This definitely wont help the matter.

    Finlet in ICU just as a precaution but he might be done forever. His family wants him to retire. My guess is he is done definitely for this year. Hard to imagine him coming back though. Bring on Quarless-lol.

    LOL some of you are total idiots. He felt some numbness after the hit (its called a stinger), they were extra cautious.

    If there is no sign of physical injury (which right now seems to be the case) he could be back as soon as this Sunday.

    • rebelgb

      Ok so maybe im the idiot. Report just out that Finleys preliminary tests are negative and that Finley has regained “most” of his movement.

      “Most”? What the fuck?

    • Phatgzus

      It may very well be a stinger, but stingers of this severity are quite rare, they are also not trivial matters-weeks of recovery and rehab, or even surgery may be required.

    good win, tempered again by an ugly injury. I like the way the defense has been playing. Did anyone else think Triplette and his crew called an awful game? worst crew in the NFL, IMO.

      Nacho Libre:

      There were a lot of bullshit calls, that running into the kicker was not intentional.

      The roughing the kicker penalty isn’t dependent on it being intention or not. Nobody intentionally runs into the kicker.
