The Run Continues: Packers 38, Giants 13

Let’s be honest. There was one Green Bay Packers’ run the table initiative: run the table to actually make the playoffs. The second one — the only one we care about: run the table and win the Super Bowl.

One took six wins in a row. The second will take 10.

The Packers took a step in the direction of the second by vanquishing their playoff ghost, the New York Giants 38-13 on Sunday evening.

The Giants came in the winners of two straight playoff games at Lambeau Field. That derpy fuck Eli Manning had just as many playoff wins at Lambeau as Aaron Rodgers: two.

No more.

The Giants can eat it. New York — to channel some LCD Soundsytem — I love you, but you’re bringing me down!

And also, your football team CAN FUCK OFF!

The Packers started REAL slow, but they finished strong. It was 6-0 before the Packers got on the board with 2:20 left. Aaron Rodgers hit Davante Adams from five yards out to make it 7-6.

Then, the latest Hail Mary.

Final play of the half, Rodgers to Randall Cobb from 42 out. 14-6 at the half all of a sudden.

Was the game over then?

No, but the Packers handled it in the second half. They added 24 to the total and that was largely because of the efforts of two men.

Sure, Aaron Rodgers — who started slow — came on and finished an outstanding 25-of-40 for 362 yards, four touchdowns and no picks.

But… offensively, other than Rodgers, it was Randall Cobb.

RANDY!

He had been out the past two weeks, but stormed back with five for 116 and three of those touchdowns.

On the other side, Julius Peppers.

He was in on the action for a large part of the day. Although he finished with only three tackles, one was a sack and he knocked down two passes. Plus, as was mentioned, he was on Eli Manning’s ass more than the statistics show.

Did Julie just decide to show up today? Maybe, but he was also wrecking Packer great Marshall Newhouse for the most part. Or as we used to call him — Turnstile.

Great to see you, Turnstile!

And hey, we won’t deny Clay Matthews’ two forced-fumble play where he also recovered the damn fumble midway through the fourth quarter.

That was straight-up phenomenal.

They all came up big today, including the special teams and punter Jake Schum, who, while the offense was going three and out early on, buried the Giants deep.

Playoff football?

Yes.

Playoff team.

Today.

The Dallas Cowboys await and they won’t be this easy.

But listen.

Fuck them.

Let’s roll!

    Monty, thanks for the LCD soundsystem reference…

    But fat Mike won us the game.
    Great timeout in the 1st quarter on the special teams 4th & 5
    More clock management after that too…great job dialing-up the offense & playing the field position game.
    Because of the timeouts on defense before the half, the packers were in a position to throw that lucky Hail Mary.., so because of McCarthy hoping for a field goal…(which he almost achieved) the packers got 7 instead… Easy to forget but a fact
    McCarthy dialed up another win, 7…
    I also defend fat Mike on the 4th & 1 call early on our own 40ish in the 3rd. The momentum felt right & it was aggressive/ faith in the defense
    Fat Mike has balls. Thank God he is a Packer

      Until you loses, and then you wanted him fired.

    On defense Peppers and Matthews made some splash plays but it sure appeared that Jake Ryan was around the ball a lot and made several good plays. GO PACK!

    Wow. Just WOW. The nightmares of the past can finall FUCK OFF! I’ve hated Eli Manning ever since 2007 when he set in motion the event that would eventually lead to Brett Favre playing in Minnesota and humiliating Green Bay. Had that little bitch Eli not gotten away with a victory that day, we might have won the Super Bowl and that would have ended Favre’s career. No Viking drama to deal with. And now, finally, PAYBACK. And God does it feel GOOD!!!

    Sure am glad my hunch was right. Me and my bro have been having a fucking BLAST the last 8 weeks! GO PACK GO! And fuck the fucking Giants!

      Hi Chad…I saw your post on another web site, i wanted to reply, but i haven’t signed up yet.

      But anyway…..I’m no Eli fan, at all. But you act like it’s all Eli’s fault that Favre went to the vikings, because if Favre won the Super Bowl, you think Favre would have retired. Citing Favre’s history, do any of us know what he would have done at any given time?

      You said that Eli set that whole scenario in motion. But wasn’t it a Favre interception 47 seconds into overtime that set it all in motion enabling a Giant field goal to advance to the Super Bowl?

      Also, these things might not help you win a NFCCG to get to the Super Bowl, no matter what QB your playing against…….
      1) 28 yards rushing
      2) 1out of 10 in 3rd down conversions
      3) Giants had the football for 18 more minutes ….yes 18 more minutes.

      Eli Manning had very little to do with it.

    Great win. I wanted to see a naked bootleg on the 4th down play that got stuffed. It got called later, but overall pretty happy.

    Anybody got info on Jordy?

    1. Adam January 8, 2017

      Sane here. That 4th down lineup was PRIME for a bootleg.

      Just happy that the TD strike the Giants delivered immediately afterwards didn’t turn the momentum.

    Hey, Odell, why do people beat their head on a wall?
    Because it feels so good when you stop.
    Also, NOW is the time to book a flight to Miami.

    3 TDs and over 100 yards against a premiere defense. I don’t even need comment to make Total TMZ Packers look stupid. I can just post your own articles.

    But don’t worry, I know all you take fans will be there to shit all over this team if they don’t win the Superbowl. I guarantee it.

    On the 4th and one, two things, MM is the stupidist and luckiest MF I`ve every seen. If they lose that game because of that call, He sould have been showed the door. I really think he is a Jackass of a head coach. STUPID
