PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Fire and Brimstone

Aaron Rodgers Packers

For most of the Favre/Rodgers era the Green Bay Packers have played a prominent game to begin the season.  They have played in the opening Thursday Night game twice.  They have opened against the 49ers twice in the past 3 years. They used to open up against the Eagles during their prime.  Make no bones about it, the Packers are a premium brand in this NFL and the league loves to showcase them during opening weekend.  This should make you proud to be a Packers fan.

That’s all well and good, but sometimes it feels like it would be better if the Packers were allowed to get their feet wet a little bit more.  The people around Packer Nation get a little bit irritable when their team takes a nose dive against a good team in week 1.  This is understandable.  There is a belief that ever since the Packers fell to the Giants in the 2011 playoff game, they have allowed the rest of the NFC to pass them by.  Continuously losing to the Seahawks and 49ers, the two teams at the top of the conference, is not ideal.  What it does, though (and this drives me nuts), is make people forget how good the Green Bay Packers are.

Dreading the end of the Packers’ Lombardi Era

starr

As I was sitting at my desk this afternoon, news of Packers legend Bart Starr’s stroke spread across far and wide through social media. Though it happened last week, the Lombardi Foundation passed on the news that had been shared with them:

Fool Me Once, Shame on….

Ray-Rice-690

We’re a funny group, us human beings. Get us in a group, add a little passion, and there’s almost always a wave of mass irrationalness that seems to sweep over everyone. Dogs and cats, living together…mass hysteria!

Sometimes its irrational attacks  for the slightest of perceived offenses. Other times, it might be dogged defense of someone, no matter how the evidence stacks up against them. In a group, people don’t worry about looking foolish. They just worry about winning.

It’s crazy.

It’s illogical.

But, most of all, its predictable.

Talk about politics or religion, and you’re certain to find these kinds of irrational responses taking place on a very regular basis. You can easily predict someone’s response to nearly any situation if they are passionately invested in their belief system. They might go on the offense. They might go on the defense. But there’re going somewhere, and the more like-minded folks they have around them, the less likely it is they’re coming back anytime soon.

But the recent video of Ray Rice assaulting his then-fiancee in an elevator, knocking her out, and dragging her out unconscious has set off a firestorm among football fans, the media, and…well, all the not-passionate folks, too. You see, we knew all these details before, long before. We actually had the video of Rice dragging her out of the elevator, and we knew what had happened prior.

Packers Therapy Episode #234: Gutless in Seattle

Chris and Dave review the pathology report of the Packers nationally televised colonoscopy performed by the Seattle Seahawks. They boys talk about the sad situation at ILB and wonder if Aaron Rodgers is going the way of a post-30 year old Brett Favre Finally, to amuse themselves, the duo roll out some betting lines offered in the sports book of the Packers Therapy Hotel and Casino.

Posting its first show in 2005, Packers Therapy is the longest-running Packers podcast on the Internet. Hosts Chris and Dave began the show as a way of capturing the spirited chats the two co-workers had about the team around the office. The two have no pretense about being experts: they are just two opinionated shareholders  who love the team, follow it closely, but don’t always see the Packers fortunes eye to eye.

The guys encourage comments and questions via their Twitter feed @PackersTherapy and read and respond to as many as they can during each show.

Packers Should Be Proactive With Changes

Brad Jones

One thing that has been consistent during the Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson era has been an unwillingness to adjust during seasons, and it has burned them before. So, it’s very unlikely that they will do anything drastic that I’m suggesting, but that doesn’t mean staying the course is the correct decision.

Yes, it is only one game against the defending Super Bowl champions at the toughest venue in the NFL, but the problems the Packers had on Thursday were highly predictable to anybody who has been paying attention. Their defense will not look nearly as bad against the middling offenses of the NFL due to exceptional talent at outside linebacker and cornerback, but when they play the elite teams you can expect more of the same if they do not improve up the middle.

The hole in the middle of Green Bay’s defense was the size of the Grand Canyon on Thursday like it has been for years. Letroy Guion was let go by the Vikings for a reason, and ended up going backwards way more often than not Thursday. The one time he actually got some penetration in the backfield he whiffed on Marshawn Lynch.

The biggest issue I have had with Thompson during his Green Bay tenure has been his unwillingness to add a veteran towards the end of camp or during the season to fill a need. I’m not talking about spending big in free agency. Ron Wolf was the master of doing this, and Thompson has had success the few times he has done it with Mark Tauscher and Howard Green.
