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.
Anonymous asked: What do you think about Woodson being out for the Packers for 4-6 freakin weeks?!?!
I was just about to comment on that…that is a HUGE loss for the Packers and puts even more pressure on Aaron Rodgers and a Packer offense that seems to be coming to life at just the right time.
Charles Woodson is a sure fire 1st ballot hall of famer and the undisputed leader of the Packers’ secondary.
The good news for the Packers is that the injury really could NOT have happened at a better point in the Packers’ schedule.
In the next 6 weeks, the Pack have 2 games against the Lions, and games against the Jaguars, Cardinals, Giants, and Vikings.
If they can get through those games 4-2 or better, they will be at 8-5 with 3 games remaining. That will certainly put them in the hunt.
So while this is a big loss for the Pack, it couldn’t have happened at a better time for them.
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 5 IN REVIEW: Colts 30, Packers 27
Come season’s end, so called experts will look at this as the game that defined Andrew Luck’s rookie season. Years from now, we will all look at it as the game that set the wheels of a hall of fame career in motion.
Nobody expected the Indianapolis Colts to defeat the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. In large part because really naive people still believe the Packers to be as good as the team that went 15-1 last season and is 2 years removed from a super bowl, but also because not many believe the Colts to be ready for the big stage.
But they certainly didn’t let that get in their way on Sunday.
After a 31 yard TD by the Packers’ Randall Cobb with 4:21 remaining in the first half, the Packers lead 21-3, and it appeared as if the route was on. But the Packers would score only once more for the rest of the game as the Colts came storming back via 362 Andrew Luck passing yards and 2 TD’s to upset the now 2-3 Packers.
The Packers’ James Jones scored with only 4:30 remaining to give the Packers a 27-22 lead, only for Andrew Luck and veteran receiver Reggie Wayne to come storming back.
Luck and Wayne connected on 2 3rd down conversions, and Luck scrambled for one himself before hitting Wayne for the last of his 13 receptions for a monsterous 212 yards on a 4 yard TD, followed by a 2 point conversion with 35 seconds remaing to give the Colts arguably the most emotional win in team history.
This one was for Coach Pagano.
NFL WEEK 4 IN REVIEW: Packers 28, Saints 27
Aaron Rodgers threw for 319 yards and 4 TD’s on 31-41, including the game winning 11 yard touchdown strike to Jordy Nelson with 7 minutes remaining to propel the Packers to 2-2, and send the Saints marching on back to Mardi Gras land at 0-4.
Drew Brees at least succeeded in padding my fantasy numbers during his 446 yards and 3 TD’s performance on Sunday, and tied Johnny Unitas’ NFL record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass at 47.
It’s hard to believe at this moment that this was once thought of as one of those unbreakable sports records, but here we are…
I tell you what though, how many of you believed at Week 5 of the season that the only thing the New Orleans Saints likely had to accomplish was THIS record for Drew Brees?
With the Saints sitting at 0-4, with the 24th ranked passing defense and the 32nd ranked rush defense, the Atlanta Falcons taking the NFC South by storm, and the Carolina Panthers failing to make the noise that I thought they could, it certainly appears as if this could be the highlight of the Saints’ season.
Who would’ve thought that THIS would be the devision that was decided the earliest?
Golden Tate FINALLY comes correct…
Nearly 72 hours after the “catch” heard around the world, Golden Tate finally manned up and admitted to pushing off Packers’ safety and committing what SHOULD have been called offensive pass interference on Monday Night.
Had the offensive pass interference been called, we wouldn’t have had to sit back and watch the worst call in NFL history unfold right before our very eyes on the game’s final play. The play CLEARLY shows packers corner MD Jennings putting both hands on the ball, tucking it into his chest and coming down to the ground with it, while Seahawks’ wide out Golden Tate never had more than one hand on the ball at any time.
“The evidence shows on the film. But I never had intentions on cheating. I wasn’t trying to cheat. I was competing, it was in the moment,” he said, according to the Seattle Times. “Things are happening so quick. I honestly didn’t even notice I did. I didn’t try to hurt him or push him down to the ground, but it happened. It was just a reaction kind of thing. …
“As far as pushing the defender, I was caught up in the moment, playing football. At that point, it was just like backyard football — find a way to get the ball. I didn’t intentionally try to shove him to the ground,” he said, according to the Seattle Times.
Never mind that when asked only moments after the controversial call heard around the world by Lisa Salters, “did you push off?” Tate responded TWICE with “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Also, as someone that played organized football for 12 years, I am here to tell you that no coach ever TEACHES you to “push off” while going for a reception. It doesn’t happen. So how that could all of the sudden just be something that Tate does without even knowing it, is beyond me.
I’m not going to continue to make too much of a big deal about this going forward. This is the LAST time I will post anything about that moment. But would it have made me fell better if Tate had just come right out and said that he didn’t make the catch and that he was clearly the beneficiary of a bogus call? Yes.
It’s too late now, and quite frankly it was too late for him to say that he pushed off. Each and every sports fan in this country has now seen the play at least 50 times each. We KNOW that you pushed off, you know that you pushed off, let’s just move forward now, shall we??
Dear Commisioner Roger Goodell,
Now that you have done the right thing by the NFL and it’s officials by ridding the league of the replacement refs, can we PLEASE have our win from Monday night’s game against the Seahawks?

NFL WEEK 3 IN REVIEW: Seahawks 14, Packers 12
The mere fact that I had to type “Seahawks 14, Packers 12” as my title, makes me sick to my fucking stomach.
And I’m not even a Packers fan.
Even Chicago Bears fans would say that the Green Bay Packers got HOSED on the call that STOLE a victory away from the Packers and awarded it to the Seahawks courtesy of a ref that no doubt had Golden Tate on his fantasy football team.
TWO things could have prevented us from ever getting to the call that prompted 70,000 angry calls that have no doubt already been deleted by some poor schmuck without a listen at NFL offices:
- If the replacement ref had flagged Golden Tate for offensive interference when he pushed Green Bay’s Sam Shield’s out of the way before the controversial “catch” by Golden Tate, this blown call is a non issue, Packers win.
- If MD Jennings had knocked the ball down rather than attempting to come up with the interception on that final play like players are taught to do from 8th grade up, non issue. Packers win.
But neither of those things happened, and you guys know what happened next.
Let me just say, that it doesn’t bother me that the replacement refs initially blew the call.
That happens ALL the time, even with the full time officials in place.
What bothers me, is that we have a review system in effect, where referees have the opportunity to look at the play from numerous angles as many times as they need to in order to get the call right, and they STILL GOT IT WRONG.
MD Jennings had BOTH hands on the ball, came down with the ball tucked completely into his chest. I NEVER saw Golden Tate with more than one hand on the football, at any point in time. This was only simultaneous posession if catching the person that catches the ball is simultaneous posession.
This was a sad moment for the integrity of the NFL.
The Green Bay Packers were absolutely HOSED, and any person that denies that has lost any and ALL credibility with me, FOREVER.
I’m talking to you, Golden Tate and Pete Carroll.
Golden Tate when asked by Lisa Salters if he pushed off, said, ““I DONT KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT!…I DONT KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT!”
When asked if he possesed the ball, Tate said, “Yes I did. I know I had the ball in my hands the entire-from the moment it was catchable. I had my hands on the ball, just fought for it and tried to come down with it.”
Are you trying to convince US, or yourself, Golden Tate?
You see, you can lie to yourself all you want, you can even convince the replacement refs that you made that catch (obviously), but you can’t lie to the millions upon millions of us that saw MD JEnnings, beyond the shadow of ANY doubt, come down with an interception that would have given the Packers what they deserved. A victory in last night’s football game.
How any person in any way, shape, or form affiliated with the Seattle Seahawks can brag about, or lay claim to this victory, and still sleep at night, is beyond me.
What is sad, is that THIS will not get the deal between the league and the full time officials done any faster.
A team getting cost a game isn’t going to speed things up, people losing a shit ton of money in Vegas isn’t going to speed things up, and 70,000 angry voicemails to NFL offices that have no doubt already been deleted, isn’t going to change anything.
The ONLY thing that will change ANYTHING is if the NFL’s ratings plummet as a result of this. They will change if all of us come together and decide not to watch Sunday Night, Thursday Night, and Monday night football. And each and every one of you know GOOD and god damn well that you will be tuning in on Thursday night.
ANY publicity is good possibility.
The NFL’s ratings will INCREASE because of this shit.
Watch and see.
NOTHING is going to get done as a result of this.
And the NFL is laughing all the way to the fucking bank.
