Night and day. However you want to state it, it’s safe to say Mike McCarthy had lost the team. But finally, the Green Bay Packers came out and beat the shit out of team they should have beat the shit out of.
Atlanta Falcons? Go back to your dirty south shithole of a city!
I wouldn’t doubt the Packers will win out at this point.
Aaron Rodgers wasn’t great. He threw for 196 yards and two touchdowns. Dropped a goddam dime on one of those touches to Randall Cobb, though. And you said, well, 12 is still 12.
And then there was Aaron Jones. Sometimes he got stuffed because the Falcons were stacking the box. Other times, he had the vision to cut back and kill a run or a reception. That guy might be Le’Veon Bell. The Packers just need to use him.
Jones has 17 carries for 78 yards and three catches for 28.
GIVE THAT MAN THE BALL!
Meanwhile, Davante Adams was the man on the outside, per usual. Adams came up with not only huge catches, but big plays. Seven for 81 and a touch.
Defensively, the Packers blitzed Matt Ryan consistently. They came up with only one sack — by Clay Matthews. That put their corners on an island, but they held up just fine.
Jaire Alexander — he got beat by perhaps the best receiver in the game in Julio Jones at times, but that guy is a star. He’s going to be worthy of the shutdown-corner label. Kid can fucking ball.
And Bashaud Breeland had himself a damn game. Fumble recovery, pick-six. Re-sign that guy right now.
At this point, I expect the Packers to win out. I expect them to sweep the shitbag Bears.
Derwin James was still a better draft choice than Jaire.
Jaire has Pro Bowl potential but Derwin looks like a future HOF player.
It’s those little misses in the draft (ex. Kevin King over TJ Watt) that add up to a mediocre roster.
I will say, it has been a while since GB balled in December at home like that. It was refreshing to see 12 have fun and the side line seemed to be enjoying themselves. Things you notice. Of course the shitbbirds had to act like fucking thugs on that one play.
Field Marshall Philbin is mein Fuhrer. Seil Heil Philbin!!!
& Davante Adams is a member of the “Philbin Youth” Adams is the ideal German officer! Seig Heil!
I whilst now eat mein Bratwurst & enjoy mein frost pint mug. HEIL PHILBIN!!!!
Holy shit, the Packers scored more than thirty points and they did it by the 3rd quarter. Nothing after that though.
Yes, give Jones the ball. He barely touched it in the first part of the game. They finally utilized those short dump off passes to him and it worked well.
This whole kick/ punt return game is such a cluster. I know Davis had some injury problems but it seems every week there’s someone new back there. Alexander, Tramon, Breeland, Montgomery, Moore, Jamal Williams, Cobb, MVS, King.
How insignificant is Jimmy Graham? Dude has done next to nothing this year. Cobb finally got his second TD of the season in week 14. Between the two of them that’s 4 TD’s for $26 million. Something needs to be done about that. I don’t see how either of them can play hardball, and if they do send them packing because the guys behind them aren’t that far off. Maybe Graham goes and catches 10 TD’s somewhere else. Who cares? If he’s not gonna do that here then screw him. Big money TE’s in GB don’t make any sense because they never use them. 80<87
This team… when you want them to win they lose, and when you want them to lose they win. Play for the draft pick! lol. Nice game otherwise and it's good to see them finally pull their heads out of their ass.
As much as I disagree with PF4L. Hes right about Graham. He hasn’t won once this year on those 50/50 balls. If hes slightly covered that ball is going to be knocked down. He wont go get it or use his big body to move those DBs out of his way. Charles Davis said Rodgers told him Graham was the best TE hes ever had. Either that’s a total BS statement or Davis is lying because no way in hell at this stage of his career Graham was better than Jermichael.
Funny after the Graham signing, all we heard was….he can replace Jordy, he can play outside, he can do this, he can do that. he’s a mismatch, he’s a red zone scoring machine.
You want to get rid of Jordy and his 10 million salary, i get it…..NO I DON’T! Especially when Jordy would have stayed for 3 or 4 million.
So instead, you pay an average tight because he had 10 td’s for someone else. That was almost like Dix having 5 interceptions and going to the Pro Bowl. It was an anomaly.
So you fork over 13.25 million. paying him 11 million up front. Good call Russ, when it was reported that the Saints wanted him at an average of 7 mill/year.
So before Graham we had too many high priced non performers signed, so what do they do, they add another one. That’s going in the wrong direction. What they should have done was cut Cobb. I’m not going to explain why anymore, if people don’t get it by now, they never will. Add in another 10 million for Wilkerson and T Willy and if you grab the calculator you can start adding up the numbers and you come up with a grand total of……a bunch of nothing.
Russ should learn the dollar value of players, Gute better learn who is an asset and who is a liability and who can help a team in free agency. We don’t have a year here and a year there to waste.
Rodgers is 35, we don’t have the luxury of a 5 year learning process. If we cut Perry this off season, we’ll have 50 million plus under the cap, it’s time to start making correct evaluations and decisions. Gute gets a pass because he’s new on the job(i guess), Russ gets a pass because……..Murphy.
2018 free agency was a disaster, the draft class TBD. But he better hope Alexander is everything people say he is, the test of time will tell us.
Nice job by Breeland on the pick 6, when’s the last time the defense got one of those? Breeland may be the only player acquisitions success story outside the draft and he was dirt cheap.
I can already see MM^2suck moving to MMRBSuck…..
Clear as mud
Ball does suck, i wouldn’t let him handle my grocery budget.
That could be in the cards ICEBOWL . . .
Philbin coaching looks like the guy in HS who hooked up with a slightly drunk girl way out of his league on a Saturday night and hes prepared to take shit for it on Monday but hes a nice guy and means well so everyone just kind of pats him on the back, gives him sly grin and asks if hes coming to next weekends party as they walk by him.
At some point Rodgers will realize that playing well will net him Joe Philbin as a coach and he’ll have to tank it again. But it was nice to see him attempt to throw the ball accurately for a change.
Don’t look now but those shitbag Bears are 9-4 with a +112 point differential.
The Bears look good on defense in cold weather and gimmicky plays on offense this year. Let’s see if they can win in the playoff, and beyond with that formula. I may be wrong, but I’d put this year in the blind squirrel finds a nut category.
Path to NFC finals will take them out of cold (LA or NO) and eliminate that “advantage”.
Geoff gave away the game to Da Bearz yesterday. CAL boy don’t like the cold weather… Though Trubby did his share of trying to lose…This cocky 1980s Fridge-Redux crap of using linemen to score TDs is gonna come back to bite them…
If you have some disposable income, here is my one and only yearly wager. Some of you may remember my queens wager last season. I don’t wager until i think it’s just short of a lock.
I found a business associate Packer fan willing to go 5 large on the Packers vs the Bears (No spread).
Couldn’t pass it up. If i have to watch them lose, i should be compensated for it like last season.
There you have it.
You have no honor my friend….
Send me the guys contact info – I need to get in on this deal…. Lol
lol…i have honor (and sizzle) ..to spare, so i’m sparing some, all in the name of greed for the almighty dollar.
Nothings guaranteed, but nothing trumps watching a losing game, more than winning some cash on it. The stars don’t align often, but………..
It’s been a shitty season. However this Sunday is our SB. IT’s our saving grace. Redemption is at hand. Gentlemen, Bear fans are giddy now. This cannot be permitted as the worst thing on this Earth is happy ignorant Bear fans. I am a degenerate gambler and I have strict rules about betting on GB ever since that fucking piss ant peanut Tillman cost me $500 in that game where he kept stripping the ball. But, fuck the rules this week. I took the 6.5 points even though there is not one football reason to do so.
Truth be told, i would have made my bet even if i had to give the points.
You are correct, there is no football reason to bet on the Pack, yet there are at least 5 reasons to take the bears, i’m going with the 5 reasons.
