NFL WEEK 9 IN REVIEW: Packers 31, Cardinals 17
You would think that the Arizona Cardinals would like their chances against the Packers if they could hold Aaron “Discount Double Check” Rodgers to 14-30 completions.
But not when 4 of those 14 completions were for touchdowns.
Randall Cobb caught 2 of Rodgers’ 4 TD passes as the Green Bay Packers improved to 6-3 on the season.
For the Cardinals, what started out as a promising 4-0 season has hit a brick wall. The Cardinals have lost 5 consecutive games.
NFL WEEK 8 IN REVIEW: Packers 24, Jaguars 15
Aaron Rodgers threw for 186 yards and 2 TD’s as the Green Bay Packers won their 3rd consecutive game and improved to 5-3 on the season.
Blain Gabbert of the Jaguars looked pretty sharp in the loss for the Jaguars, throwing for 303 yards, a TD, and NO interception. But it was all for nothing as the Jags fell to 1-6 and are still without Maurice Jones-Drew.
NFL WEEK 7 IN REVIEW: Packers 30, Rams 20
Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, Aaron Rodgers has gotten his swagger back.
And that is bad news for the rest of the NFL.
A week removed from a 42-24 beat down of the previously undefeated Houston Texans in which the defending MVP tossed 6 TD passes, the Packers’ QB threw for 342 yards and 3 more scores on Sunday.
Rodgers now has thrown for 680 yards and 9 TD’s in the Packers’ last 2 victories.
Jordy Nelson had 8 receptions for 122 yards and a TD, and Randall Cobb caught 2 TD tosses from Mr. Discount Double Check as the Packers improved to 4-3 on the season.
Now if only they could get the Chicago Bears and their relentless defense to come down to Earth….
NFL MVP WATCH (Week 7)
- Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons- 68% completions, 1,756 yards, 14 TD’s, 6 INT’s, 98.8 RTG. His stats aren’t the best amongst NFL QB’s, but they aren’t too far off and his Atlanta Falcons are the NFL’s last undefeated team at 6-0. At this point, that is good enough for me.
- Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers- 68% completions, 1,637 yards, 16 TD’s, 4 INT’s, 105.4 RTG. Only the Packers 3-3 record is preventing the defending MVP, aka Mr. Discount Double Check from topping this list. But the beat down his Packers put on the previously undefeated Houston Texans may be the sign of a return to cheesehead dominance…
- Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos- 68% completions, 1,808 yards, 14 TD’s, 4 INT’s, 105 RTG. With every game, Peyton Manning makes the Indianapolis Colts look dumber and dumber. The only 4 time MVP in the history of the NFL is in the midst of a great season, and is fresh off of one of the biggest comebacks of his illustrious career.
- Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers- 65% completions, 1,487 yards, 10 TD’s, 2 INT’s, 99.9 RTG. If the Pittsburgh Steelers hadn’t been so mediocre up to this point, Big Ben could be running away with this thing.
- Tom Brady, New England Patriots- 66% completions, 1,845 yards, 10 TD’s, 3 INT’s, 97.2 RTG. My pre-season pick for MVP is victim only to the Pats extremely dissapointing 3-3 start.
NFL WEEK 6 IN CAPTION:
BALLER OF THE WEEK (Week 6)
Aaron Rodgers picked apart a Houston Texans team that walked into Week 6 undefeated to the tune of 338 yards and 6 TD passes in a 42-24 Green Bay Packers’ statement victory on Sunday.
Mr. Discount Double Check tied the Green Pay Packers’ single game touchdown passes record, and proved to Cheeseheads across the World that the Green Bay Packers’ team that went 15-1 last season, is still very much alive.
NFL WEEK 6 IN REVIEW: Packers 42, Texans 24
Those of you wondering whether or not there was anything left of the Green Bay Packers team that won the Super Bowl two seasons ago, and went 15-1 last season got there answer on Sunday night.
It was a LOUD, and RESOUNDING yes, Cheesehead style in a beatdown of a previously undefeated Houston Texans team.
Aaron Rodgers was BIG BOY BALLIN and beyond 4th gear of BEAST MODE on Sunday, as he completed 24 of 37 passes for 338 yards and 6 TD passes, as the Packers finally returned to the prominence that had many thinking they were unbeatable during the 2011 season.
Jordy Nelson caught 3 of Rodgers’ now all time single game Packers’ record tying 6 TD passes, James Jones caught 2, and Tom Crabtree caught 1.
But it wasn’t Rodgers’ 6 TD passes, the Packers’ offensive output, or even the margin of victory that was so impressive on Sunday night. It was the level of competition in which they did it against.
The Texans came into the game as one of only 2 undefeated teams (5-0) and were widely revered as one of the NFL’s top 5 overall defenses.
But they certainly didn’t look like it after Mr. Discount Double Check got up in their asses to the tune of 6 TD passes.
Many so called experts predicted a Green Bay Packers/Houston Texans Super Bowl matchup this season.
Aaron Rodgers likes the sound of that…
NFL WEEK 2 IN CAPTION:
Aaron Rodgers: “Yo Jay…”
Jay Cutler: “What’s up, Aaron?”
Aaron Rodgers: “That’s “Mr. MVP” or sir, to you dude.”
Jay Cutler: (Silent)
Aaron Rodgers: “Just kidding dude. I actually came over here to ask you a question….”
Jay Cutler: “Okay.”
Aaron Rodgers: “How does one QB throw 4 interceptions in one night?”
Jay Cutler: (Head down and silent)
Aaron Rodgers: “Oh! And those 7 sacks? Seriously dude, you were on the grass harder than Snoop Dogg on the “Up in Smoke” tour bus.”
Jay Cutler: “Fuck you, Mr. MVP!”
Aaron Rodgers: “Sorry man. Just tryin to help. By the way…Clay wanted me to thank you for getting him elected to the Pro Bowl in one game, all by yourself. Later…”
2012 NFL SEASON PREVIEW-NFC NORTH: Green Bay Packers
In 2011, Aaron Rodgers won the NFL MVP and the Green Bay Packers finished the season 15-1 and were eliminated in the divisional round of the playoffs by the eventual super bowl champion New York Giants.
Not if you ask them, or any cheese head.
Especially one year removed from a super bowl title that the won out of the wild card.
- The Green Bay Packers offense is unbelievable! The team finished 3rd in pass offense, and 3rd in total offense
- Aaron Rodgers, the reigning MVP, is your QB.
- The Packers defense couldn’t stop ice from melting is it was in a freezer. They ranked dead last in pass defense, 14th in rush defense, and dead last in total defense. And THIS is despite having true STUDS on defense. Charles Woodson, AJ Hawk, Clay Matthews…these guys are STUDS! WTF??
This is NOW a high powered, pass first league that places little to no emphasis on the running game or defense. But the 3 truly remarkable, record breaking offenses from 2011 (Patriots, Saints, Packers) ALL ended the season with the same result…NO Super Bowl title.
Defense STILL means something in this league.
If the Green Bay Packers can get that through their heads this season, they will be Super Bowl contenders. If they don’t, they will make a lot of highlight reels, Aaron Rodgers will throw for a shit ton of yards, possibly win another MVP, the Packers will win a lot of regular season games, and they will go home early, and without a ring.
We shall see….
PREDICTION: 13-3, NFC North champions
Anonymous asked: who do you think are the top 5 players in the NFL?
- Tom Brady
- Aaron Rodgers
- Drew Brees
- Arian Foster
- Larry Fitzgerald
Skip Bayless just said that he would take Tim Tebow over Aaron Rodgers to win him ONE game, because he’s “seen more” from Tim Tebow.
I am a Tebow guy, and I’m here to tell you that is the most ludicrous thing I’ve EVER heard.
I guess the Super Bowl ring that Rodgers won, and the league MVP Rodgers won, was not enough to sway Bayless’ opinion.
Gimme a fuckin’ break!
Anonymous asked: Would you agree that Eli Manning deserves MVP consideration after his performance against the Packers today??
Once again, the NFL MVP award is an award for REGULAR SEASON achievements.
But EVEN AFTER Sunday’s playoff game, would I give the MVP to Eli over Rodgers, Brees, and Brady???
Eli Manning had the best season of his NFL career and HAS PROVEN himself as a Top 5 QB in the NFL, just like he said he thoughthe was before the season opener.
GREAT season for Manning!
He may VERY WELL get something that Brees and Rodgers now have ZERO shot at, now…..
The “Super Bowl MVP” award!
I PROMISE you, he would RATHER have that one.
And he HAS a shot.
Anonymous asked: Do you think that Rodgers and Brees are still WORTHY of MVP consideration after their early playoff exits??
The NFL MVP award is a REGULAR SEASON award.
What happens after Week 17 doesn’t matter.
What Rodgers and Brees accomplished this season was LEGENDARY from a statistical prospective.
They had 2 of the best individual season’s by a QBin NFL history.
To ME, they have gotten away from what the award was SUPPOSED to stand for in recent years.
It has gone from going to the most “valuable” player, to the most “ACCOMPLISHED” player.
To ME, the award should go to the player that if his team had to do WITHOUT him, would suffer the most.
To ME, that guy is Tom Brady.
New England’s defense is ATTROCIOUS, they don’t have a SINGLE skill position player that you have EVER heard of before they hooked up with Tom Brady, yet they had the best record in the AFC.
Rodgers is great, but didn’t you see what they did with first time starter Matt Flynn in Week 17??
The kid had been sitting on his ASS ALL season, and strps in Week 17 against a PLAYOFF team, and sets Packer team records for passing yards AND TD passes in a game.
NOT to undermine what Rodgers accomplisherd, but the Packers are LOADED at the skill positions, and the exact same can be said of the Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints.
If I were giving the award, I’d give it to Brady, but if they vote on it the way they have in recent years, I think that Rodgers and Brees should be CO-MVP.
