A victory sweeter than Texas homestyle chili – Packers 17 Cowboys 7

There’s only one thing to do after a victory like that. Crank up the Journey. “Don’t stop – believing!” With a convincing win over the Dallas Cowboys this week, the Packers have significantly improved their chances of winning a wild card playoff spot. But that’s not the best part. The best part is that my good friend Joe is a lifelong Cowboys fan, and I am a lifelong Packers fan. It was so great to finally be able to rub it in to him, because we love to talk smack to each other! Last time these two teams met it was a Dallas victory and I couldn’t hear the end of it from him. This was great. It was just too sweet. In honor of that sweetness, I am going to make some yummy Texas homestyle chili. Here is a great recipe for it.

I recommend letting it simmer for about half a day until it is absolutely perfect. Top it with some shredded Wisconsin cheese and sour cream and you will be sure to create a mouth orgasm, or as I like to call it, a mouth-gasm.

The game ball this week goes to Charles Woodson. Is he even human? Two forced fumbles, and a goal-line interception at crucial moments in the game by Woodson this week. Those things are enough to make any Packers fan smile. I knew there was a reason I named my Yahoo pro football pick ‘em group “Charles Woodson is GOD.”

Now you can drink some Charles Woodson wine with your dinner, too. 🙂

While Green Bay’s offensive line was still bad, it was a big improvement this Sunday over previous weeks. I actually like the decision to put the rookie T.J. Lang in as a starter. Aaron Rodgers was able to make a few plays without running for his life this week, and Packer-backers can take some comfort from that. And if they still feel like crying, hopefully it’s only because the chili they’re eating is way too spicy. Have a great week cheeseheads!

This week’s winner: Charles Woodson

This week’s loser: Wisconsin native Tony Romo. Ha ha! Sorry Tony Romeo, better luck next time.

Next week the Packers host the San Fransico 49ers. Go Pack!

    I was so nervous for them to play the Cowboys this week especially after the disappointment from last week. I couldn’t even remember the last time we beat Dallas. Like you and your friend’s rivalry, I had pretty much the same thing going on. I couldn’t even talk smack because of the Packer’s ridiculous loss last week, but when push came to shove, the Pack pulled through and now I got the last laugh. However my friend, who just flat-out hates the Packers, thinks the only reason they won was because of the ref’s horrible call towards the end of the game; the one where Romo fumbled and Dallas recovered it and was supposedly “down by contact” but then he lost the ball and the Pack recovered it. Oh well, at the end of the day, the Packers won and that’s all that matters! Bring it on 9ers! We’re ready! Oh yeah…and Woodson is aMaZiNg!!!

      Yeah, you do have to love Woodson. I like to shout C-Wood! at my TV whenever he makes a play. Your friend is right, that was a bad call near the end of the game, but I still don’t think that it would have determined the outcome of the game. And if you’ll remember, the last time the Packers and Cowboys played there were some absolutley horrible calls against the Pack including a questionable pass interference that helped decide the game. So if anything, I consider it karma. It all evens out in the end, most of the players can agree on that. Let’s just hope that we don’t have a bad call go against us next week. Fingers crossed! And can I just say that I love your enthusiam about the team, :). Thanks for reading my blog! Go PACK!

    I was at the game helping TV-9 in Wausau cover the great Packers’ win. Some of the reporters complained about how boring the game was and for the first half it was. But the Packers had to make it boring and ugly in order to win because they could not go back and forth with the Cowboys trying to score touchdowns. The offensive line needs to improve in pass protection and run blocking in order to contend for a wild card spot. Charles Woodson is a professional in every sense of the word because after the game in the locker room his locker was crowded with reporters and he stayed and answer every question until they were done. Not a lot of players would do that but he did and they Packers seem to peaking at the right time.

      That’s so cool that you were there. I’m so jealous! I really like your insight on Charles Woodson. He seems like a great guy, the Packers are lucky to have him on their team. Hopefully the O-line will continue to improve and help the Pack make a playoff push. I think it’s been hard keeping Clifton and Tauscher healthy. Still, I like Lang, he’s a worker. Next time tell TV-9 you want to bring your classmates!
