pm-vikings The Packers tied the Vikings, so that means we totally won, right? It is the bizarro season where the Green Bay Packers can hit rock bottom, tie the lowly Minnesota Vikings the week after and still remain only a half-game behind first place in the NFC North. Thank you Football Jebus, for letting the Bears and Lions lose this week. Since this is a tie, who do I put on the slab? The Packers, Vikings are both?

  • We didn’t lose. Thank you Football Jebus, for small little blessings.
  • All of you that thought Matt Flynn returning was a horrible idea can get in line to kiss my butt. The Matty Flynn Show has returned. And to quote my second grader, all y’all can suck a truck.
  • Yes, Flynn is better than Tolzien. It’s not that I don’t like Scoots, but Flynn has a better pocket presence. He has more confidence and he doesn’t hesitate as much.
  • But the joke is on all of us. How many millions did Flynn get paid to take a two year vacation? I totally want his agent.
  • But Matt did keep us viable.
  • Do I even need to point out the two point attempt? Yes, the retrospectivescope is a powerful tool. But I may be pretty liberal in just about all areas of politics, I am a complete mossback conservative when it comes to scoring points. Early in the game, even behind the eight ball, you DO NOT give away guaranteed points. Never, never ever. Sheesh.
  • I didn’t worry about Mason Crosby at all in this game. He and Flynn are why none of us are in the corner slitting our wrists.
  • Got bored as the team was tanking in the third quarter and noticed McCarthy and Rodgers debating in a rather animated fashion (interpret how you will, but it was tamer than what you saw in Cincinnati.) Wonder if Rodgers was advocating for Flynn to go in, because he totally did on the next drive.
  • Oh and since we’re taking about Rodgers, the only person more bundled up than him today was Ralphie’s brother in a Christmas Story. Guess you can’t reinjure your collarbone if you can’t move your arms.
  • Flick saw some Grizzly Bears down by Pulaski’s Candy Store.
  • Less worried about Turkey Day if the QB is named Flynn if he isn’t named Aaron Charles.
  • If Flynn is named the starter for Thursday, I think Rodgers will troll less with his, “Are we there yet?” schtick to beat the medical staff into submission and clearing him this week.
  • Eddie Lacy put the entire team on his back today. When the defense all but gave up and we were playing Merry-go-quarterback, he did not give up. He played like a beast. Such a total steal in the second round.
  • Heart stopped when he went to the locker room briefly during overtime.
  • Matthews had two sacks, but he needs to not over shoot.
  • Marshall Newhouse  needs to find a job in something other than football post haste. Taking volunteers to blindfold him, drive him somewhere up in the Upper Peninsula and leaving him behind to walk home.
  • Seriously, the pocket collapsed quickly today and Newhouse aka the Turnstile will get a QB killed yet.
  • Defense couldn’t decide if it wanted to suck or rise to the occasion.
  • Capers still gets gashed on the run. Hey Dom, they are going to run quite a lot, may want to adjust to defend that.
  • Hey Dom, about that run, they have Adrian Peterson. See above comment to adjusting to the freaking run!
  • House almost had an INT. But an Almost INT isn’t a turn over, this isn’t hand grenades, so it doesn’t count.
  • Boykin can ball. Boy kin he ball.
  • Until Flynn came in, Masthay was the MVP of the game.
  • McCarthy needs to be less predictable in play calling.
  • Capers need to be put out to pasture.
  • Rodgers needs to juice (hey, Aaron, juice kale still takes like nastyass kale, just pointing out the painfully obvious) or whatever you need to do to get back on the field.
  • Packers are not out of it by any stretch of the imagination.
  • Did we give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
  • Never make a bet with a Sicilian when death is on the line.
  • Say a prayer for me. Going to the parents’ house for Turkey Day. The Mom is from Detroit. She will invariably put dinner on the table at kick off and will become an insufferable Lions homer, even though she does not give a toss about football and the only Lion she can name is Alex Karras.
  • Happy Turkey Day this weeks, Packers Fans.
  • Go Pack Go.
