Four Quarters is Today’s Theme

Julio Jones

Because that’s how many there are in a football game and there’s plenty of speculation that the Green Bay Packers only played two of them last night.

Of course, there’s the evidence too.

The Packers staked a 31-7 halftime lead over the Atlanta Falcons, Monday night. That sort of first-half performance has become customary in Green Bay this year. So apparently, some guys thought the Falcons would just mail it in in the second half, much like the Eagles and Bears did before them.

Not so. The Falcons, who are kind of like that annoying prick at your party who just HAS to be the last one standing, decided they were going to put up 30 points in the second half. And let’s be honest, the Packers defense — especially the secondary — was more focused on getting over to The Oval Office than they were on playing ball.

“There may have been a slight relaxation there at halftime up 24,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. “Occasionally that can be the natural thing.”

Natural or not, a similar second-half letdown hasn’t happened in the team’s other home wins this season. Of course, none of them have followed an emotional victory like the one over the Patriots. Perhaps it was inevitable.

And perhaps we have to thank the Falcons for being so shitty that the Packers could suffer a letdown game and still win.

However you want to look at it, Buffoon not happy.

“Maybe I need to go back and look at what was said at halftime,” head coach Mike McCarthy said. “We haven’t played four quarters here in a while and we clearly didn’t show up for four quarters in several parts of the game.”

Well, you kind of played four quarters the week prior to this past one. You know, when you beat the Patriots?

Whatever, though! You get those boys refocused!

    MM is an idiot and a fat buffoon. He is successful because of TT and Aaron Rodgers. Otherwise this guy is shit and should be run out of town. Now I know all you fan boys are gonna jump in and talk about his record, and our recent win streak. I just wonder where you will be when we lose in the 1st or the 2nd round of the playoffs. Im telling you (and I love the fucking Pack) that this team doesnt win the NFC Championship.

      Damn shame too. Ass kicking offense that just owns teams and a bitch D that thinks having your opponent rack up these ‘most anything by someone’ games is no big deal.

      Turning into the late Favre years, ver. 2.0.

      Fickle jackaloons. I guess it was MM’s fault that Ryan Grant went on a fumble spree against the Ginas in the playoffs a few years ago…

      He is the OFFENSIVE coordinator & here you go…WE WON THE F*CKING GAME!!!! Hello?

      In fact…we’ve won 10 games this season & McCarthy is NAILS vs. ViQueens & Bears. You won’t find a better coach for this franchise than McCarthy

      Predicting something to happen that the odds are against anyway hardly makes you some sort of sage or realistic-minded fan, which obviously you are not.

      Moronic post on many levels. Your racial blasts are more insightful.

      Nah, you don’t love the Pack.

  2. Savage57 December 9, 2014

    Fuck 4 quarters. How about Mikey just has ’em work on the 3rd and 4th. You know, quittin’ time.

  3. TyKo Steamboat December 9, 2014

    Haha, Monty.

    Funny how Julio Jones goes off while your Fantasy team Is on a Bye!

    There should be an article on this website reminding armchair fans that this is the new NFL & also that the Packers actually won the football game against Atlanta on Monday night. It seems as though the opposite took place.

      This is what happens when the expectations are Superbowl or bust every single year. The crazy part is that these people can’t even enjoy a win. That’s just sad.

      1. MGP December 10, 2014

        Agree.

  5. kato December 10, 2014

    IT SHOULD BE SUPER BOWL OR BUST EVERY YEAR WHEN YOU HAVE ONE OF THE GREATEST QBS TO EVER PLAY THE GAME! Jesus Christ. I don’t understand why people just strive for good and not the best. No wonder america is in the shitter. People are complacent. While I realize you aren’t going to win the super bowl every year, these packers have won one playoff game since their super bowl. They are 1-3! The one coming against Joe Webb! This is almost Andy Dalton led Bengals level. Before you know it Rodgers will be retired without another super bowl and we will be irrelevant for 20 years

      please God, just kill us all… we are not worthy of your gifts…

      Holy shit, overreact much? Key words in your screamfest: “since their [S]uper [B]owl”. You realize their have only been 3 full seasons since then right? That’s not a lot of time. Chill. The fuck. Lax.

  6. MMTTDCSUCK December 10, 2014

    I believe Kato makes valid points. If all you want is mediocrity, why don’t you guys go cheer on the Queens? Or Tampa Bay? As far as enjoying wins, Hell yes! I enjoy every win! Who would not? But not raising expectations as a fan base subtly allows the Packers to become less concerned for the results that we have seen in the last 5 or so years. That is just simple logic. If we do not raise hell about them shitting the fucking bed every god damned year in the playoffs, they figure that were happy as clams. Fuck that sentiment! Is this how you raise your children? to hope for the best? but sit quietly by and accept mediocrity without raising fucking hell? These fucks (especially Capers ) make a lot of money to shit the bed. Buffoon is complicit, and all of you complacent cunts can do is whine about the guys who call out these fucks for shitting the bed! So, breaking this down, you get mad at us for speaking the truths about Capers and Buffoon’s bed shitting, project your frustration and anger at us, listen to more Vic Ketchman vomiting Packer positive propaganda, eat that up so as to engage your confirmation bias, and go back to your useless live’s happy that the Packers are winning ugly and avoid raising hell about the obvious fatal flaws that befall us on an annual basis! You are not fans! you are complacent, milquetoast’s . . .

    1. Phatgzus December 10, 2014

      Simple logic, sure, if you’re the fucking Mad Hatter. Holy shit I’d hate to visit the bizzaro world you live in. Newsflash: This is the NFL, not Madden 2000-Who-Gives-A-Shit. The Falcons have a top 10 O in scoring and yardage, our D had a corner who didn’t practice all week and frankly looked like they expected to coast to another blowout. They let their guard down, it shouldn’t happen given the competitive required to succeed at the pinnacle of this profession, but it DOES happen. It’s the first awful half the DEFENSE has had all year, the offense has had more awful halves, believe it or not.

      You do realize the members of the organization-from the Prez to the Players-likely want to win even more than the fans do, in the end, they’re the ones in the spotlight, who’s reputation is on the line. Considering the competitive drive most of these guys have, they don’t want to lose.

      Furthermore, the only way they could ever give a true shit what overreacting armchair GMs think of them is if those fucks create a mass movement to stop buying the merchandise and tickets, therefore affecting their ability to earn a living. Get a clue, Sherlock.

      Side Note: how fucking complacent do you have to be to think your words are “facts”? Holy shit, man, you need to scream for Scotty to beam you out of the Hellish Wonderland you’re living in because there isn’t enough rope in the world to save your ass; unless you want be saved in the same way a martyr is.

      Bottom Line: The Packers W-O-N, fucking deal with it.

    Everybody can shut the fuck up. Being a blow-hard on a website won’t change the way the Packers play, and making excuses won’t help either. Just be excited to watch our Packers next week in Buffalo. Until then fuck off, and Go Pack Go!

  8. MMTTDCSUCK December 10, 2014

    Awwww, you can fuck off too Don Q! Hey that rhymed!

    1. Fritz December 10, 2014

      no it didn’t. your second line was a different length and metre from the first. if you want to learn poetry, read E Wolf’s posts.
