• So, the Lions lost to the Packers’ Junior Varsity squad. May have been a gimme game, but the Lions really didn’t want to have to travel to New Orleans in the first round. Oh well. Too bad, so sad.
  • That said, they can thank A Boy Named Suh for their trip to the Big Easy. Silly little man with anger management issues, didn’t you know that putting the belt on is the kiss of death to opponents? To quote the great philosopher Nelson, Ha Ha.
  • Still shaking my head at the woman behind me at the game who had the cojones to start cheering when Suh put on the belt. Seriously, lady, in our house? Please.
  • Which brings us to my favorite tweet of the game from the one and only Older Brother , “Can’t figure out if my next touchdown dance in my flag football league will be to fake stomp a defenseless lineman or to fake crash my car.”
  • Still think Rodgers not playing today may be one of the first portents of the Mayan Apocalypse.
  • So raise your hand if you thought Matt Flynn would hold the Packers’ record for the most (that would be six, count ‘em SIX) touchdowns in a single game by the end of this gimme game?
  • Welcome to the record books, Mr. Flynn!
  • Wow, just wow, Flynn put on a show today. Reassuring that if Aaron Rodgers happens to get abducted by aliens in the very near future, the Packers would be in good hands during this upcoming playoff run.
  • Unfortunately, this was Flynn’s scout game for other teams that are desperate for a quality starter. Have a feeling that Arizona, Cleveland, the Seabirds and maybe even Indianapolis were watching with great interest today. Suck for Luck may go to the first pick of the draft. But one of those other teams is going to eventually Win With Flynn.
  • We’re going to miss you, Matty!
  • Aaron Rodgers was a pretty good offensive coordinator calling plays the first half of the game.
  • Great strategy to keep his head in the game.
  • Looks  like Finley finally got his groove back but I still think his YOTTO celebration is still pretty lame. Dude, unless they’re on Twitter, people think you’re doing the YMCA dance. Give it a rest already.
  • Jordy Nelson proved once again today it is a damn shame he was passed over for the Pro Bowl.
  • But James Jones caught the ball when the Pack needed it most. Clutch play of the game goes to him as should a game ball.
  • Who was that running back and what did he do with Ryan Grant?
  • Still don’t understand while the cliche yet still highly grandstanding,  over-the-goalpost slam dunk is perfectly acceptable touchdown celebration but an innocuous snow angel is a 15 yard penalty. You are killing me, Smalls!
  • Pat Lee, are you freaking kidding me? This is the first time I’ve seen a voluntary safety. On a kick off. C’mon man.
  • My Alabama alum brother would like to point out that Pat Lee went to Auburn, so I need to lower my expectations when it comes to him. So, there’s that…
  • Makes you realize what a great thing Randall Cobb has become for Special Teams. Everyone else who tried to return a ball looked like his IQ dropped about 50 points as the ball started its descent toward Earth. Jordy, I’m lumping you into that hot mess as well.
  • Are we sure the head ref was not Jeff Triplette?
  • Explain to me why they called back that Masthay punt after the above safety? Their inner children weren’t ready even though they handed the ball to the punter and said, “Have it, kid.”
  • He was hard to understand in addition to his selective rule upholding.
  • And according to my husband, everything he said sounded like a nasally, southern version of banana. Personal foul. Banana. Banana, Banana. 15 yard penalty, repeat Banana.
  • I think I agree with Robb. But don’t tell him.
  • Still sure what Erik Walden was thinking when he decided to drill Stafford after the play. Seriously, dude, when you’re performance is a solid D+ or C- on a good day, getting flagged for not using your head is not going to win any friends, especially if his initials are MMc.
  • Morgan Burnett is definitely more effective now that they took the cast off his hands.
  • Secondary still remains a vulnerability, but the defense played better than it has in weeks.
  • Like that momentum and cohesiveness as they head to the playoffs.
  • And if Rodgers not playing was a portent for the end of the world, perhaps a game ending INT from Sam Shields is a sign of good things to come.
  • Aren’t plays like this what springboarded the Packers forward about this time last year?
  • Points to the crazy drunken dude running on to the field.
  • Shame on the Brown County Sheriff’s Department for falling asleep on the job as said crazy dude ran across the field.
  • Style points deducted for not being buck naked for the romp.
  • Points given to the Packer sideline and whoever that was who leveled the punishing hit that brought not-so-naked guy to the ground. Only then did the cops realize there was a crazy dude on the ground.
  • A little saddened that @KareemCopeland did not know who sang Bad to the Bone. Apparently he never drank a really bad and cheap beer around a bonfire on Scray’s Hill or other rural setting outside Green Bay in high school and/or college. His loss.
  • 15-1, kiddies. Back on track and hungry for a playoff win. See you all back for a postseason post mortem in two weeks!

    Face it. The only referee we want is Ed Hochuli. We ladies love it when the gun show comes to town.

    Player who tackled the kid was Brad Jones.

    Re: Pat Lee. Can’t understand why Lee couldn’t field a kick cleanly while the guy shagging balls for Mason Crosby at halftime was catching ‘em on the fly.
