    “Matt Flynn should be your quarterback here, Mike. ”

    I hear THAT. I do NOT understand leaving your franchise in at that point even if he WASN’T working behind a patchwork offensive line,

  • We’re going to beat the Fudge. TWICE.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Let’s not get too excited yet.

      You think the Bears would have fared much better up there tonight?

      • NewBearInTown

        Biggest difference between the Bears and Packers last night is that we have two (!) monsters are receiver and the Packers have none. Seattle’s front 7 on D were dominant, but Rodgers had nowhere to go with the ball.
        Remember, Brandon Marshall routinely made Revis look human back in the Miami days. He didn’t make Revis look bad, but he did make it possible for his team to throw to the entire field.
        Not saying we’d mop the floor with them, but we do have better personnel for matching up with that D.

        • Big Mike

          Wow. Is all I could say. Glad it was GB up there getting an ass whooping and not the Bears.

  • Shady

    Jeff, you’ve really honed your interview skrills.

  • According to PFT

    “1. Aaron Rodgers already has his Super Bowl ring and an MVP trophy.

    But if he didn’t, he’d be getting a lot more scrutiny for some of his outbursts.

    Barking at rookie center Corey Linsley
    in front of the world when he had to burn a timeout in the first half
    was a bad look for the Packers quarterback. Linsley, bless his
    heart, was thrown into a tough spot in his first game, unable to hear or
    imagine what was coming next. That doesn’t make his error excusable,
    but the reaction seemed over the top.

    It’s not that the yelling was out of the ordinary, but it’s a great example of context in the NFL.

    When Rodgers or Tom Brady does it, it’s competitiveness. When Jay Cutler does it, it’s a sign of immaturity. God forbid Cam Newton took the towel off his head and did the same.

    If Rodgers really wanted to bark at someone, he might have chosen the
    folks who put together the game plan. He was throwing almost nothing
    but dump-offs (18 passes for 86 yards in the first half) when the game
    was competitive, and the circus that was a fourth-down attempt in the
    second half will be dissected for days.”

    • Shady

      Mike mentioned that on the last thread. So true.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Yeah, he and Brady get a pass when they’re making sure something wasn’t their fault.

      • Cormonster

        Rodgers was probably pissed off tonight. Not because they lost, but because his QB rating was affected when Nelson let the ball go through his hands for a pick.

    • Barb UMihai Mar

      Brady and Rodgers are great leaders. The problem is not that they don’t get criticized for such trivial things, but because the other ones do.

  • I don’t get it. So, the SEA tickets are cheaper (ergo, more loud mouths blue blood) than other stadiums?
    I thought it was just the stadium design that made it louder over there.

    • Big Mike

      Stadium influences it, once the rep was built it became a “thing”. Being loud is their thing. Now they’ve got the bandwagon effect along with just about a sure thing to get the win.

  • For your consideration….

    Seattle fans make us look like frauds. If conte is fucking boo’d I’ll pour my beer on the nearest pussy right in front of his pussy kid. I just got tickets to the game

    • GPLDAN

      The Luftwaffle is aloft! Sound the alarm!

  • AlbertInTucson

    Tweeted;’Yep. He sure did. RT @iamyellowlime: Did Collinsworth just say he played the ’85 Bears in 1986?”

    C’mon, now. As criticism that’s a reach.

    The guy was just making a point about playing one of THE great teams.

    He faced the Bears in game 4 of the ’86 season. The Bears crushed his Bengals 44-7.

    McMahon tossed 3 TD passes.

    Boomer Esiason threw 4 picks and was sacked 4 times.

    The Bears were winning their 21st out of their last 22 games, including the ’85 post-season.

    At that point in time, the ’86 Bears WERE still the ’85 Bears.

    There’s plenty of reasons to call out Cris Collinsworth but that comment isn’t one of them.

    • Barb UMihai Mar

      I love Collinsworth. He’s the best color commentator I’ve ever heard. The sense of his comment was clear as it was, but it was also fitting because the Packers O was going against the Seahawks 2013 defense, in a certain sense. So in ’86 he was in the situation the Packers were last nignt.

    • Big Mike

      The 86 defense was actually statistically better. You can look it up..

      • AlbertInTucson

        Under Vince Tobin.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Tweet: “Nobody likes saying negative things about him but I do. Russell Wilson has been awful tonight. ”

    19 of 28 for 191 yards & 2 TDs plus 29 yards rushing on 7 attempts.

    Most importantly, NO turnovers.

    That’s “Awful” ?

    No, that’s Russell Wislon knowing

    “I don’t have to light it up because “My Favorite Marshawn” is gouging the Packers so I’ll take care of the football, run for a 3rd down conversion when I need to and let our “Lynch” pin carry the load because the only stat that means anything is the ‘1’ we put up in the win column tonight.”

    “Awful” was Earl Thomas returning punts.

    • Cormonster

      Who said that? Makes no sense.

      • AlbertInTucson

        A Blogfather tweet.

    • Cormonster

      I know I am a Wisconsin homer, but Darrell Bevell is a great OC. He knows how to run an offense around the strengths on his team. Wilson is a very savvy QB, but the play calling was great tonight. Bevell also did a great job with Favre in Minnesota.. Collinsworth was right about one thing tonight. Bevell should be a head coach next year.

      • AlbertInTucson

        And Russell Wilson knows that. Did you read his lips when he turned to Bevell and said “Nice call.”?

        • Cormonster

          In about 5 months ESPN will be running stories with headlines like “Is the NFL ready to accept a Mormon as a Head Coach?”.

          • AlbertInTucson

            ESPN Reporter to bosses: “There’s no story here.”.

            ESPN Bosses: “Find one, invent one or don’t come back to Bristol.”

          • Cormonster

            Does Bevell shower with the players, or separately? I tried to avoid that story, but eventually I heard about the Michael Sam “story”.

          • haha I thought the “White Knight” Romney put an end to that. Kinda like JFK broke the “Irish Barrier”.

          • Cormonster

            Kennedy was also the first Catholic President. I think he is the only one. Could that be why he was assassinated? Hmmm. Irish?

          • Trac

            Nope, he got tagged because he reneged on his deal with the Mob.

          • bearsfantillend

            everyone knows it was a plot between the Russians, CIA, Mob, and Aliens from planet X341-R5.

    • GPLDAN

      Al gets +1961 blog points for a Ray Winston reference.

      • AlbertInTucson

        Thanks. That’s Ray WALSTON, GP. He was also “Mr. Hand” the history teacher in FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH.

  • AlbertInTucson

    This was a BAD loss and I don’t mean the score.

    Lacy concussed (again).

    Brian Bulaga injured (again).

    Is it fair to call Brian Bulaga the “Chris Chandler of offensive tackles”?

    • Cormonster

      Too bad if Bulaga is lost for an extended period of time. He’s a tough player struck with the injury bug; If the Packers start Sherrod for any extended period of time, they will have some problems. Sherrod = J’Webb. He is terrible and has horrible foot work.

    • Barb UMihai Mar

      Play Seattle and you’re break bones. I has really happy the Bears left that preseason game with ‘only’ the S pair out for a bunch of days.
      Trestman used a game plan that sounded like this ‘not take hits whatever happens. It’s the reason they ignored Forte when when he was sky free with nobody around him for 10 + yards. Cutler threw 3 passes into the middle of the field and each time the WR ducked. Smart thing.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Champ Bailey worked out for the Lions.

  • I would also like to take this moment to thank Jeff for moving away from the Gnomes!
    In case you’re waxing nostalgic…

    Good night for us. Sorry to see injuries (yes, seriously), but hey, better than us… and ours will come sure enough.

    Shady… a 7 – 7.5. Not at all my type but really nice nipples. Hee hee

    • Cormonster

      Pencil erasers?

      • MB30SD

        No, small and kinda perfect. Fake big Cs or small Ds. Very nice

        • Cormonster

          I mean the nipples.

  • Trac

    Jeff-“The league has to have even higher standards than society?” Good luck with that! You can’t change a leopards spots and the NFLPA is not gonna allow that to happen.
