Vikings fire Brad Childress. Packers are the COACH Killers!

November 22, 2010 Leave a comment

The Minnesota Vikings have fired head coach Brad Childress. He will be replaced by Minnesota Defensive Coordinator Leslie Frazer. This is the second time this year that the Packers routing a team has led to a coach being fired. The first time was a little more than two weeks ago when the Cowboys fired (former) head coach Wade Phillips after they were dominated by the Packers.

I guess this means we can give our Packers a new nickname – the Coach Killers. I also like “the Legend Killer” for Mr. Aaron Rodgers. Why?

A) Because he killed Favre’s legend, B) because he does that ‘title belt’ celebration after a run, and C) you know it’s just awesome.

I also need to correct something from my last post – the Packers are a 1/2 game behind the Bears in the NFC North, not ahead of them. Thanks for reading!

Packers SPANK the Vikings in Minnesota. Packers 31 – Vikings 3.

Mr. Touchdown himself - Aaron Rodgers.



1-2-3 Dominate!!!

That is the chant that the Packers use after warm-ups and that is exactly what they did today. Brett Who? Am I right?

Packers fans were already treated to an exorcism of some #4 demons earlier this year when the Packers beat the Vikings at Lambeau Field. But this… well, for the Vikings this game was just embarrassing. Poor coaching, poor playing, poor everything. Poor Brett Favre.

Oh wait…

I don’t feel sorry for you anymore, Brett. You turned out to be kind of a dick. I didn’t need the text messages you sent me to prove it. You had an amazing season last year, but you threw that fatal pick just as you always do. You should have hung it up. We might have been able to forgive you for one year in Minnesota, for your “revenge” season. But coming back this year… saying this was ‘the best team you’ve ever been on’?

No. That ain’t right. And it obviously wasn’t the best team today. Just look at the 31-3 SPANKING the Packers handed you. The best team YOU ever played on was the one in 1996 (in Green Bay). That team won a Super Bowl? Remember???  Maybe you don’t… maybe you really have taken one too many shots to the head. Maybe that’s why you can’t remember what text messages you sent and to whom. But I can see how you would be confused with Deanna Favre‘s striking resemblance to Jenn Sterger. Well… at least it’s obvious that you have a type.

Ok, enough of the Favre-bashing. You’ve taken your lumps now #4. You can’t say you haven’t gotten what you deserved. On to the game…

Let’s see, Aaron Rodgers, 4 passing touchdowns and a 141.3 passer rating. Greg Jennings had 3 touchdown catches, and was his awesome self. Driver looked decent coming back from injury and James Jones had a beautiful corner catch in the end zone. But as great as the offense was today, the real credit goes to…

the Defense! Just another dominant performance from the Green Bay defense today, and I loved watching every second of it. Woodson was great, as usual. Matthews only had 1 sack, but he freed up someone else on nearly every single play. Tramon Williams had an awesome pick, which led to the James Jones score just before half time. Collins and Peprah are playing pretty well at safety too.

There are also the unknown heroes on the D-line: Raji, Pickett and Jenkins. They are getting better every week. Let’s also credit Hawk, Zombo and Bishop for shutting down Adrian Peterson. And Clay Matthews too, of course. They made the Purple Jesus look average in the game, something that not many teams can do.

This victory pulls the Packers ahead of the Bears with a 7-3 record and an ever so slight lead in the NFC North. It was a great day to be a Packer fan. To those Vikings fans out there… hope you enjoyed our sloppy seconds! Sucks to be you!

I guess I’m supposed to mention a food here too – I got pretty cheesy today, so let’s talk about Cheez Whiz. Is it really cheese? Is it really whiz? I don’t think anybody is really sure what it is. It tastes good on crackers, though. And here’s something you can do with it… this makes a great game day snack.

Happy Reading and Happy eating y’all!! Have a great Thanksgiving, and-
Go Pack Go!!

Packers sink the Vikings, Favre admits to sending Sterger voicemails. Packers 28- Vikings 24.

Jenn Sterger, voicemail recipient.

Great win for the Packers tonight.

Keys to the game: The Packers did not give up any big special teams plays this week. The defense came through when they had to and did just enough to help the pack win. There were good things and bad things about the Packers’ game execution this week. Let’s break it down.

The Good: the Favre interceptions, of course, especially the Pick 6. The pressure finally getting to an opposing quarterback – mostly thanks to Clay Matthews – it is clear that his presence makes a huge difference for the Pack’s D. How about that face mask penalty in the 4th quarter? That was HUGE. Also good: Aaron Rodgers – he did just enough to win and for once he did not have to try to put the team on his back for a miraculous comeback.I bet he loved being the team with the lead in the 4th quarter for a change. Let’s also give some props to A.J. Hawk, Nick Collins and Desmond Bishop for picking off Gandalf the Grey. Excuse me, I mean Brett Favre. Or is it Rip Van Winkle? Or Hobbles McHobbally? Yeah, I guess it was Favre. Game ball goes to Bishop for the return touchdown. Notice that his 6 points were 2 points more than the Packers won by.

The Bad: The Packers defense could not seem to stop Percy Harvin or Adrian Peterson. They were lucky to slow them down just enough to win. It is clear how much they are missing guys like Nick Barnett and Atari Bigby right now. Guys who can tackle hard and blow plays up in the backfield. Charlie Peprah is definitely not the answer. Thank god for Woodson. At least Woodson can tackle Peterson. And Harvin. He might want to demonstrate for the rest of  the team. It was also disgusting to see almost the exact same play on consecutive 4th-and-1’s. Come on man! They had to be expecting it. Kuhn is okay but how about letting Rodgers run it? Or sweeping outside? It would have been better to do something they wouldn’t expect. Then there was the 4th down fake. Ugh. It would have been amazing if it worked. Unfortunately, it didn’t.

The ugly: Favre admitted this week to sending the voice mails in question to Jenn Sterger. We will have to wait and see if any punishment from the league will result from his admission. He has denied sending her the texts of his “nether regions”, though. If that is the case, this could be the end of the investigation. IF it turns out he was lying, well…. this could get uglier than the Michael Vick dog fighting fallout.

Here’s my recap: Great win for the Pack, they got the monkey off their back, Brett Favre almost had a heart attack and Jenn Sterger now thinks that he’s on crack. Yeah, rhyming. That just happened. Sorry. It was cheap, I know. That’s why it is in the ugly section.

Summary: Great win for the Packers. Enough said. Go Pack Go!

Brett Favre has his revenge – For the second time. Vikings 38 Packers 26.

A dish best served cold or with Tater tot hot dish.

Well it’s official. Brett Favre has proven once and for all that the Packers management made a mistake by letting him get away. By forcing Favre out, they brought the debacle that was sunday’s game upon all of us. He smoked the Packers secondary like a rotisserie chicken, throwing for four touchdowns this week. He had Ted Thompson crying, and wiping the proverbial egg off of his face.

I have never much cared for GM Ted Thompson, but this is getting out of hand. His draft picks over the years have been suspect at best, and he hasn’t done anything in the time that he has been with Green Bay to improve the offensive line. In fact, since the arrival of good old TT, the offensive line has gotten much, MUCH worse. It is a travesty against the fans and the Green and Gold faithful. It is a tragedy of what could have been if he had made better choices. I loved the look on his face from the booth as Green Bay was getting crushed in the 2nd Quarter. It seemed to say “Whoops, I’m an a$$ who couldn’t manage my way out of a wet paper bag.” Seriously though, his face was as red as a sun-ripened tomato.

I never liked very many of the moves that TT made since coming to Green Bay, and this is just the icing on the cake. If you look at what happened to Seattle, it is pretty much the same thing. That crappy franchise has Ted Thompson’s finger prints all over it. It’s about time we called for him to get the @$#$ out of town on the horse he rode in on.

But enough of the heartache – let’s all go enjoy some tater tot hot dish in honor of our old friend number four. It is apparently a Minnesota delicacy. I almost feel kind of bad for Mr. Favre, seeing as how he was crying at the end of the game and pining for the glory years when “I loved them just as much as they loved me.” Almost, but not quite. He is still a traitor, after all. Here’s the video of the post game press conference with Brett:

Also something to watch for next week: Aaron Rodgers was severely limping after the game. Will he be able to play? Those multiple sacks he is taking every week are adding up. Add your thoughts on this by leaving a comment.

T.T.H.D. – It can stand for either Tater Tot Hot Dish, or Ted Thompson Has Diarrhea (of the brain.)

Monday Night Meltdown – Another bad night for the Pack. Vikings 30 Packers 23

It looks like Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle owes Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty a case of Wisconsin beer. The two governors had a bet riding on Monday night’s Packers-Vikings matchup. The winner got a case of the other state’s beer. Might I suggest some Spotted Cow, Mr. Governor? Or, if that’s not your favorite flavor, then you could go with some Pabst Blue Ribbon, or Leinenkugel’s. All three are Wisconsin beers that have become quite popular over the years. Yes, I am aware that many of you know this.

Gov. Doyle won’t be going home empty-handed because the two governors also had a bet riding on Saturday’s Minnesota-Wisconsin college football matchup. The Badgers pulled out the win 31-28. Gov. Doyle’s reward will be a case of specialty Minnesota foods. To put it in Minnesota terms: “Oh Ya Know, we got dat tater-tot hot dish ya know hey.” I suppose the only way to make their silly foods edible will be smothering them with Wisconsin cheddar. As we all know, Wisconsin cheddar makes everything better.

Anyway, on to the game. In my last blog I predicted that the Vikings’ strong pass rush, specifically Jared Allen, would dominate the Packers’ weak offensive line. That’s exactly what happened. It was a Monday night record 8 sacks for the Vikings. Even though Aaron Rodgers put up another valiant effort, the Pack’s O-line was obviously over-matched. If Green Bay doesn’t get this fixed and fast, it can expect to be watching the playoffs from home this year instead of participating in them. Their record is now 2-2 and they are two games behind division-leading Minnesota. They sorely missed Chad Clifton this week at left tackle.

Oh yes, and who could forget about Brett Favre. ESPN had this game hyped like the second coming of Christ. The senior citizen (Favre) tore apart the Packers’ secondary, throwing for three touchdowns, and making Al Harris wonder if he should cut off his dreadlocks. Perhaps if the Green Bay defense had been able to reach Favre at all, the outcome might have been different. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. Next week is the Packers bye week before heading back to Lambeau Field to face the Lions. I’ll be at the game, so I should have some great inside-the-game reporting. Especially on the tailgating.
