Five More Thoughts On Packers’ 24-17 Loss To Vikings
I’ve been putting this off for a simple reason. I fucking hate the Minnesota Vikings and their goddam chucklehead fans.
If there are two things that are useless, it’s a used piece of toilet paper and a fucking Vikings fan.
This particular loss probably ended the Packers season. Although, you could say that about any of the previous five. Or the bullshit tie.
But we didn’t know that then. We know it now.
But it’s been a delay, kind of like the Vikings putting anything in their fucking trophy case, so let’s get on with it.
Throw Him Out There
Hell, what choice do you have at this point? The Packers claimed safety Ibraheim Campbell off waivers from… wait for this… the New York Jets in early November. Few weeks later he’s playing 53 snaps for the Packers against the Vikings. I guess that’s what it has come to. Kevin King isn’t ever going to be healthy. That turd Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is gone. The Packers inexplicably cut Jermaine Whitehead. The current Packers regime seems to think 2017 second-round pick Josh Jones can only play dime linebacker. So this is what it has come down to. Giving major snaps to a backup safety who was waived by the the joke-ass New York Jets. Funny thing is, Campbell wasn’t that bad. Dude had eight tackles, which was second on the team.
Kenny Clark, Man…
The one solid thing Big Ted did when he was fucking up those last few drafts was pick Kenny Clark in the first round in 2016. Clark wasn’t an immediate star by any stretch of the imagination. He’s sure as hell come into his own now, though. He probably is the Packers one legitimate All-Pro candidate. You saw it when he put up four sacks down the stretch in 2017. He’s obviously carried that over into 2018. He has six sacks this year after Sunday. More impressively, Clark is doing it without Mike Daniels on the field. I don’t think you can stop this guy right now. Hopefully for years to come.
Fackrell And Lowry
Alright, a couple weirdo white dudes from non-football powers that were drafted in 2016 have played well this year too. Lowry had the Packers other sack on Sunday. Yeah, two fucking sacks. That’s what the Packers got against the Stinkings. So then a half-wit like Jerk Cousins throws for 342 yards, three touchdowns and no picks against you. Anyway, Lowry and Fackrell have been thrust to the forefront because of injuries to Muhammad Wilkerson and then Mike Daniels, and — surprise, surprise — Nick Perry. Both of them have been solid to say the least. In fact, both of them seem to have hit their NFL stride.
Speaking Of Turnovers…
When are the Packers going to start creating some? The Packers are 19th in the league in turnover differential. They were minus-1 on Sunday. They are even on the season. Mike Pettine was supposed to bring in this killer defense when he was named coordinator. Turnovers usually win games. Create some! The only reason the Packers are where they are in this ranking is because Aaron Rodgers doesn’t throw picks. Only one this season for Rodgers. The takeaway numbers are pathetic for this defense.
The Usual Buffoonery
The Packers have been shit on third down this season. They were a pathetic two-for-10 on Sunday. The whole fourth-down situation or situations, as it were, were total and complete buffoonery. Let’s be honest. Aaron Rodgers wasn’t razor sharp. However, this comes down to The Buffoon, himself, Mike McCarthy. I still don’t know what the hell he was thinking about the fourth-down calls, other than gravy. Must have gravy! But the third-down record this year has been crap. It’s like the other team always knows what the Packers are going to do. Usually they stop it. And you know what that means. See ya later, Gravy Fart.
