No Huddle Radio: Kissing Your Sister – Packers Vikings

No Huddle Radio from ALLGBP.com on Packers Talk Radio Network

Marques and Jason discuss the first tie game for the Packers since 1987 and a tie that actually brought the Packers closer to first place in the North.

The duo also hand out this week’s Game Balls and Lame Calls.  Will Aaron Rodgers play against the Lions and what are the Packers’ chances of getting their first win in November?  Can Detroit break its decade-long dry spell on Thanksgiving at the expense of a short-handed Packers team?

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Season on the Line

AJ Hawk

Technically I think I am wrong.  I believe that there are certainly scenarios in which the Packers could lose the game on Sunday and still make the playoffs at 10-6 provided that they win out.  I don’t think that is going to happen.  I really think that Green Bay needs to handle business on Sunday or the season is over.  I understand that Aaron Rodgers could play on thanksgiving and waved at people with his left arm or something dumb like at a concert last night, but this was not a perfect football team even before AR’s injury.  Yes, the team was well on it’s way to a 6-2 start and a run through a cake part of the schedule that would have had them fighting for a first round bye, but they certainly weren’t unbeatable.

If the Packers can pick themselves  up and beat the Vikings on Sunday, it keeps the possibility of 11-5 alive, and more importantly, it means that 10-6 doesn’t require perfection.  I’m not even sure that with Rodgers Green Bay, as beat up as it is, would be favored in all of it’s games coming in especially not necessarily in Detroit.  I still believe in this team, but there’s a very thin line between winning and losing in the NFL, and Aaron Rodgers has been blurring that line for the Packers for the last 5+ seasons.

Tuesday Recap: We. Didn’t. Punt.

AJ Hawk

The Green Bay Packers didn’t punt.  In fact, after Tim Masthay hammered the opening kickoff 9 yards deep and the (terrifying) Cordarelle Patterson took it the full 109 yards to the house, Masthay was relieved of his kickoff duties.  He had to swing his leg once,  chase after Patterson, dive at his ankles, watch the rest of the game, and grab his check.  I’m not even sure if he showered.  If you are trying to find a negative in the Packers performance outside of the coverage on on that opening pickup, you are picking nits.  It was a dominant offensive performance.  The Packers ran the ball down the Vikings throats, out gaining the NFC North bottom feeders on the ground 182-111.  Go back and re-read that sentence.  Those are rushing yards.  This was a dominant performance, and a perfect way to say goodbye to that shithole place.

I completely understand that the Vikings had 31 points on the scoreboard.  This is definitely an embarrassing number, especially considering that they had only mustered 17 points in their previous two games combined.  If you look at it more closely, it was a very empty 31 points.  The Vikings only mustered 243 yards of offense.  Special teams and (questionable) penalties were the best form of moving the ball for Minnesota.  When you consider that James Starks equaled 2012 MVP Adrian Peterson’s output in half the carries you start to realize that this was a good, old-fashioned country ass whipping.  In 2010, the Vikings were in an almost identical situation.  They had just come off of a playoff season, they had unrealistic expectations, and were off to a slow start.  Aaron Rodgers came in a beat them to a pulp and the coach was fired the next day.  It’s a least a little bit interesting that Leslie Frazier is still standing whereas Brad Childress was not.

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: A Fond Farewell?

Aaron Rodgers

The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome is truly a terrible place.  It is an honest to goodness shanty. It (along with fake crowd noise being pumped in through speakers) has certainly provided the Vikings with a formidable home field advantage.  Minnesota is a very impressive 158-85 at the Humpty Dump.  As they say all bad good things must come to an end.  From a competitive advantage standpoint, I’m sure there are some Vikings fans that will be sad to see it go, but it’s not a place filled with fond memories.  The 1999 NFC championship game was played there, and the Vikings have not made a Super Bowl appearance at any point in there 31 years of patronage.

One thing that I will tell you for sure is that no Packer fan that makes the trip to Minneapolis on any kind of consistency will miss the place.  The teflon roof, the urinal troughs, the terrible upper deck seats, the over priced beer, it’s all a disaster.  It was a true house of horrors for the Favre era Packers.  As the Packers starting QB, Brett went 5-10.  It was awful.  Current Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, or as Greg Jennings calls him “the guy they have now” has not had quite as rough of a time, but is still only 2-3 in Minnesota.  It would definitely be nice to get a divisional road win and end the Metrodome era and despite the catastrophic injury situation that the Packers are currently dealing with, a victory seems to be at hand.

Green Bay Packers Flashback Sunday: The Date Of Infamy for Packers Fans

favre vikings helmet

Most Sundays, the Green Bay Packers Flashback Sunday series has a specific format: an introduction, brief history of the game, season, or player being discussed, and a video at the end showcasing the patriculars of the subject.

This week, that format is being changed.

There is no need for a lengthy introduction. No need to provide any background. No need for any of that.

Because every Packers fan knows exactly where they were on the date of infamy back in 2009.

Here are just a few of the moments that were captured that fateful November day, when the unthinkable became a reality:

 

 

 

 

As was stated, EVERY Packers fan knows exactly where they were on this day.

We would love to know where you were on this day. Where did you watch this game? What were your feelings seeing this take place? And what is your lasting moment of November 1, 2009? Leave your comments here in the comment section so everyone can read what you were feeling on this fateful day.

When you are done examining your inner psyche, please head over to AllGBP.com and check out this week’s edition of Surviving Sunday: Packers News, Notes and Links for the Football Deprived. It is a must read every Sunday during the off season.

Green Bay West: An Open Letter to Disgruntled Cheese Heads

Former Packers Linebacker Desmond Bishop signed a one year contract with the Minnesota Vikings, becoming the latest in a long line of significant contributors to Green Bay Packer excellence to jump ship.  Certain numbers of fans are pissed, and hey I get it.  Super Bowl XLV is still fresh in everyone’s mind and when one thinks of that game there’s no way to unsee the images of Desmond Bishop recovering Rashard Mendenhall’s fumble or Greg Jennings getting smoked by Polamalu on his first TD catch, only to get up and size his finger for the ring he would get just hours later.

Those two are going to wear purple this upcoming season.  It is going to happen. Not only does no full grown man look right in a purple football uniform but these are our guys, man!  Also, doesn’t it feel like this just happened?  I feel like either it was a long snapper or a quarterback that went over to the Vikes in the last 5 years or so and won a playoff game.  That really is neither here or there.

Here’s my biggest point, well really two points.  Actually two sub-points within the first point and then a second, individual point related but not the same as the first point and/or sub-points.  First is that guess what people, the Vikings sign free agents, your favorite team doesn’t.  Deal with it.  The second is that after a player is no longer wanted by our boy Ted, that player is going to want to prove that he can still play.  It’s human nature.  Whether that animosity is directed at the franchise, at the GM, or at the coaches there is going to be animosity.
