Vikings' bye results in three-game bulge

The Dallas Cowboys had an enjoyable bye week last month, with every other team in their division playing — and losing.

The Minnesota Vikings have had a similar experience this weekend, with the two teams in position to keep them from winning the NFC North crown for a second straight year dropping games they were widely expected to win.

The Bears opted for early hibernation against the Cardinals, with Arizona hanging 41 points on a defense that was apparently preoccupied by playing with its porridge. 

And then the creamsicle Bucs uniforms apparently induced flashbacks for the Packers, who played like they did in the days when Tampa wore those duds on a full-time basis.

So now the 7-1 Vikings lead both the Bears and Packers by three games.  The bulge over Green Bay is as a practical matter four games, since the Vikes hold the head-to-head tiebreaker.

    So tell me Packers fans….. how do you like the decision to get rid of Favre now?
    Ted Thompson are complete morons, and the fans that sided with them are even bigger morons.
    You lose to the Bucs,, the BUCS for gosh sake!!!!!!!
    LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    SKOL VIKINGS!!!!
    now if carolina can hold on against the saints, things will be looking even better……

    Not really news.
    The Vikings are a good team in what has turned out to be a very weak division.

  4. Seaman Jelle says: Nov 8, 2009 5:55 PM

    Let’s hear the negativity Packer rubes! 38 to the Buc’s, unacceptable.

  5. Uncle Leo says: Nov 8, 2009 5:55 PM

    Does that big bulge have anything to do with Favre’s groin?

  6. Favredaze says: Nov 8, 2009 5:58 PM

    After emmbarassing themselves by booing Brett Favre last week the Puke got embarassed on the field by the Mighty Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Maybe now the Puker fans will admit a winning season is nearly impossible, and that the Puke screwed up in not securing Brett Favre for the rest of his NFL Life. Eat it Dissgusting Puker Fans. Your team STINKS.

    After the fans embarrassed themselves by booing Brett Favre the team follows suit by embarrassing themselves on the field in Tampa.
    Maybe now the Puke will admit they screwed up by not securing Brett Favre for the rest of his NFL life, and that a winning record is nearly impossible. Eat it Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy apologists if this ship is allowed to continue irrelavance here we come.

    McCarthy and Thompson will go down as the two biggest A$$clowns in Packer history. Week by week with every loss more and more of the Packers players have been disgruntled with Packer Management, I can only imagine how they feel now.
    Anyone care to join me for as new drinking game ? I’ll put McCrappy’s post game comments on youtube and when ever he says ” We will have to get that fixed ” everyone takes a drink. Now this won’t be a game for amateurs because they have a lot to fix so put on your drinking shoes.

    Im impressed by the vikings fans comments. The same guy who you talked smack about for years is now the best thing ever? How will this year end in dissapointment for the vikings? A 1st round playoff loss? Getting to the nfc championship game only to loose? Another Sb loss? The only way to save face is a superbowl win and we all know the odds of that.

  14. JackieTreehorn says: Nov 8, 2009 6:24 PM

    Do you think the Viqueens will lose another Super Bowl again this year??????? How many have you lost now? 4? I don’t know, almost too many to count.
    And the Packers have 13 NFL championships. Or is it 12? almost too many to count………get it?????
    Remember who rules. Packers over Viqueens forever.

  15. MN FAVRE says: Nov 8, 2009 6:28 PM

    Yes, we’re Favre fans (as our WISCONSIN license plate dictates: MN FAVRE) and this was funny today to watch as those still remaining TT and MM diehards could eat there words: “The Packers are going to the Super Bowl” they all said in the preseason!
    Yeah, right! We like AR although he needs to get rid of the ball (BOTH he and O-Line responsible for the 37 sacks, many sacks hanging unto the ball WELL over 4 seconds, an NFL no-no).
    1)Going to the Oct. 5 game at MN was fun (my son and I drove 686-miles roundtrip)2) The Lambeau game completing the “NEW PACKER SWEEP” was extraordinary, but, 3) TODAY was HILARIOUS!
    Hey, TT fans and MM fans, STILL think that great duo is so good. We don’t mind letting Favre go,( he’s the happiest he’s been since TT arrived), BOTH are happy with that, but, if Packers miss playoffs, BOTH must go and Favre will still be in playoffs! How about Holmgren as GM and Gruden as Coach! Wouldn’t that be funny, 2 of Favre’s old buddies!

  16. DailyNorseman says: Nov 8, 2009 6:33 PM

    Yeah, you won’t hear much from the Packer fans this week. Their team got handled by the last winless team in the league and a QB making his first NFL starts (who somehow has a better sense of when to throw the ball away than the “great” Aaron Rodgers does).
    Won’t hear much from the Bear fans, either. . .after all, it’s tough to allow a quarterback to go from throwing 5 interceptions one week (like Kurt Warner did against Carolina a week ago) to throwing 5 touchdowns the next (like Warner did today).
    For all the bluster we hear from the Bear and Packer fans about their young, “stud” QBs of the future. . .all I see when I look at Chicago is Jeff George, and all I see when I look at Green Bay is Daunte Culpepper. Not a whole lot to be worried about or scared of there.

  17. jamesz23 says: Nov 8, 2009 6:34 PM

    Haha Fan of Four sounds like a fun game. What a disgraceful performance by the Pack today. Poor coaching & a lot of players on the bottom of the roster that are just ‘guys’, they could be replaced with people on the street right now who would be just as good. Just kills the Pack’s special teams and depth when there’s an injury anywhere. Hasn’t TT had more draft picks than anyone over the past 5 years??
    Why do people keep bringing up Brett Favre? Does he play guard, tackle, pass rushing linebacker? If he was still playing with this team everyone would be on here saying retire already old man. QB is not the problem with this team – a coach who calls 20- 30 yard passes consistently with this EXPANSION TEAM oline is.

  18. LBPACKFAN says: Nov 8, 2009 6:40 PM

    Packers defense/special teams gives up 38 to the poor Bucs…and yet we still have the posts about letting Favre go? Hmmmm. Yeah…one of “Karen” Rodgers INT’s got housed….so blame that one on him I guess.

  19. PurpleRaid12 says: Nov 8, 2009 6:45 PM

    Hey Mike,
    Can you tell me really quickly what the ODDS of Tampa Bay beating your Packers were?

  20. dr4iz says: Nov 8, 2009 6:45 PM

    @mike
    At least Vikings’ fans have something to watch the next 8 weeks. What are you going to do on sundays now that the Packers’ season has already ended in disappointment? Perhaps run out to the barn and fondle your livestock?

  21. launcher says: Nov 8, 2009 6:47 PM

    Favredaze,
    As Vikings fans I think we should be saying
    “KEEP Ted Thompson”
    “KEEP Mike McCarthy”

  22. footballisfun says: Nov 8, 2009 6:48 PM

    I think the Vienna Boys’ Choir could get 6 sacks a game on Rodgers. That is one pitiful blocking unit.

    Typical comment from a Packer turd.

    ——————————————————
    I’m sure you are just thrilled that the pack has 1 sb championship in the last 40 years, that must really give you something to hang your hat on. Yeah, viking fans are really pissed that we won our division last year, heaven forbid a guy with his first appearance in the playoffs doesnt have a spectacular game (t-jack) but no, we are all going to be crying if we win the divisi0n. you just go ahead and celebrate your 40 years of sucking interupted with 1 great year (in which your team was lead by the guy you jocksniffers ran out of town)
    you are going to be lucky to finish in 3rd this year, i say lucky because if you played in a “tough” division like the NFC south you’d have to face the bucs twice a year, along with the panthers, and would probably finish dead last, here you get the cupcake lions and cuNtler handed you the first one against the bears.
    why don’t you try another typical packer comment of how the vikes are probably going to move to LA (won’t happen) or something else completely unrelated to the fact that the vikes are 7-1, and your suckass team is 4-4 having just added another loss after bowing to lowly bucs?

  25. mike says: Nov 8, 2009 7:12 PM

    Did I ever say I was a packer fan?

  26. Favredaze says: Nov 8, 2009 7:14 PM

    I’ll tell you why we keep bringing up Favre. This is the same line that went 13-3 and eneded up with a home NFC championship. Tauscher and Clifton were injury prone that year and Barbre and Colledge were playing then. The only difference is Wells at Center. Say what you will about the stats that Rodgers puts up the only ones that matter are the W’s,and he can’t get more than losses. I think Favre had alot to do with the way the line looks. His awareness in the pocket is what made the line look so good.
    Launcher I am a Packer fan. That can see the forest in spite of the trees. I’ve been sayin since week 1 that the Packers are not going to contend. Now the rest of the world has caught up. My new prediction is that by the end of the season Rodgers will be getting the Romo treatment. It has already started when people have started blaming him for some of the sacks.

  27. Twiz says: Nov 8, 2009 7:16 PM

    WTG Lord Florio, another astounding blog designed to do nothing but get people to argue…….
    Funny thing, the (Fudge)Packer fans have nothing to argue about. They can only bring up the past. They conviently forget that their own past absolutely sucked for 40 or so years before Favre came to down.
    So (Fudge)Packer fans, how does it feel to lose to a team that had not won a game this year? How does it feel to have your so called “top 5″ QB on his ass another 6 times? I’m starting to think David Carr’s record might be in jeopardy!
    Once again, the real question is: “Will Rodgers retire due to injury before Favre” LOL

  28. jamesz23 says: Nov 8, 2009 7:19 PM

    I think if the Packers GM and coaching staff positions became available after the season it would be desirable to the Gruden, Cowher, Shanahan’s. There is some good young talent on the team – they just need a GM who can draft the most important positions on the football field – the lines. Freeman had all day to throw today, no pressure at all. Meanwhile the Bucs who had 11 sacks for the season were in the backfield all day – unacceptable. Stop using 2nd rd picks on Brandon Jackson, Darryn Colledge, Jordy Nelson – average athletes, backup guys with top 60 picks.

  29. LBPACKFAN says: Nov 8, 2009 7:28 PM

    Vikes fans -
    I will continue to cheer my team on…look for bright spots…maybe by miracle we can get into the playoffs? The G-Men just lost today…and the road to SB still goes through New Orleans. Still a lot of weeks left. Who knows what will happen.

    Congrats to Vikes on just about wrapping up the division. Go Packers!!

  30. CanadianVikingFan says: Nov 8, 2009 7:32 PM

    Funny how some* packer fans keep saying how we will go 1 and done or lose in the superbowl or the NFC championship game. Look at it this way, at least we’d make it to the playoffs. And really keep bringing up the 0 superbowls we’ve won. Do you see the same players from then on this team? Do you see the same type of game? Is the league the same at all? No… So what happens now has no connection to then. Stop being stupid.

  31. Lamblow Field filled with Dairyland Drunks says: Nov 8, 2009 7:42 PM

    Where’s the Packer fans that talk shit all week, grow some balls and at least make an appearance and take your verbal slaying. Your top 3 defense (LMAO) just gave up 38 to the Bucs, your team is weak. The fan base is split in 2 because of the Favre ordeal (funny Favre is having the best time of his career in MN) and TT has completely destroyed a 13-3 team. I am starting to think TT is a Viking fan in disguise.

  32. tufar says: Nov 8, 2009 7:45 PM

    Bob Nelson had a list some ago that showed the Packers next seven games at the time. He was indicating how easy it was going to be for the Packers. If I recall correctly he had included the Bengals and Bucs as cinch wins. Probably he expected wins over the Vikes also. Those games turned out to be four losses. Now they’ve got Dallas next. Possibly under .500 after next week? Any more of those great lists for us Bob?
    Is it true that technically the Pack has only one Super Bowl win? A Packer fan told me that the ’67 and ’68 wins were in a game between the NFL and AFL winners and the NFL later retroactively called them Super Bowl wins even though the games were not the Super Bowl.

  33. OmegaXxXNFL says: Nov 8, 2009 7:46 PM

    You can just feel all the hate spewing from these Viking fans, must be in the pit of your stomach the Packer leading the all time series, having 3 super bowl titles under their belt, yeah that would brew hate in the Viking faithful. Enjoy this Viking fans it won’t last for you and once Favre is gone, what are you going to do? If I had to pick who to root for, for the next 10 years I would take the Packers, this time will own the North for years to come, this year definitely not! Go Saints!!!
    Saints
    vs
    Colts
    Super Bowl!!!!!!

  34. sand0 says: Nov 8, 2009 7:49 PM

    Packers have hit rock bottom and I’m loving it. Favre was everything to that franchise and now that he is gone they are primed for another couple of decades of suckage. Pure awesomeness.
    Also I love that this is one of about 3 Vikes threads this year that aren’t just loaded with Packer comments. The only comment we have in this thread is pretty much that Packers rule forever because they have more championships.
    Hahahahahaha. You have one in the last 40 years and it doesn’t look like that number will be getting added to any time soon. Vikes at least have a chance. A coach and organization that knows how to build a team that can win.

  35. jamesz23 says: Nov 8, 2009 7:51 PM

    2007 the line had the same players but Chad Clifton was playing a lot better back than, Mark Tauscher played every game & was playing so well that he shut down Michael Strahan twice that season. Colledge, Wells, Spitz were the interior line. People forget however that the Packers played a last place schedule that season – the NFC North was not good that year either. They also played a pitiful AFC West in 2007 – go back and look at the standings.
    Favre is fabolous at getting the ball out quickly – but that 2007 line was not playing this poorly – this would be pretty close to what Favre had in 2005 when he tossed 29 picks and everyone, especially Vikings fans were tearing him to shreds about being washed up and overrated.

  36. jamesz23 says: Nov 8, 2009 7:55 PM

    On more than 1 occasion the Packers had to keep 8 guys in to protect. On Rodgers last INT that was returned Driver and Jennings were out running routes against 6 defenders – that is ridiculous, how can you win like that? You can’t.

  37. BleedGreen says: Nov 8, 2009 7:59 PM

    As a 40 year Packer fan AND a Stockholder I will say this. If you follow my post you know I have always thought TT and MM blow. The big mouth Packer fans are suddenly quiet. I predicted Gb would go 6-10 last year and I predicted 7-9 this season. I am one of MANY….and I mean Many Packer fans that have found myself rooting for the Vikings. Remember…I am a stockholder and have been a Packer fan since the late 60′s. I have spent thousands of $ on this team but me and my family have vowed to never spend a dime on the Packers until Teddy “alternative lifestyle” Thompson is gone.Don’t get too excited Viking fans…..I could never spend a dime on viking gear……but Thanks for keeping Brett in the league.This is coming from an owner of the GBP.

  39. DocBG says: Nov 8, 2009 8:04 PM

    @ Omegaxxnfl
    I cannot speak for every viking fan on this site, but the MAIN reason I even signed up for an account was to be able to correct some of the insanities of the packer morons that have been shooting crap out of their mouths since last year ended. I’ve read the garbage spewed by those idiots for a long time and finally felt the need to speak up for the vikings. I didn’t have any sort of deep seated hate for the packers (well, any more than normal for a rival) but after reading what these tools write over and over again, it gets disgusting and you want to do what you can to at least keep it even, if not shut a few of them up.
    as for the rest of your post, get a clue you moron, i don’t care about the all time series, what in the hell does that have to do with anything? I care about the last match up with them, and the one we will have next year against them. of the 3 superbowl titles the packers have, 2 of them happened years before i was born, so i dont give a shit about them, the last one occured when the team was lead by favre (you know, the guy those morons ran out of town), and once again, was more than 10 years ago, so who really cares about it? The fact that the rams won it in 99 sure isnt helping them now is it? grow up and get a life you fool.

  40. LBPACKFAN says: Nov 8, 2009 8:06 PM

    LaBlow and whoever else:
    I am taking my verbal slaying. Pack are hurting right now…not playing good football obviously. I blame a lot on the coaching and play calling. Why take long chances down the field when you are running the ball good? Even Ahman Green had a few nice runs. Overall, horrible game. I don’t understand specifically the first INT Rodgers threw.
    Tufar -
    Packers have 3 Super Bowl wins…and it’s true the Vikings have 0.

  41. Twiz says: Nov 8, 2009 8:07 PM

  42. LBPACKFAN says: Nov 8, 2009 8:18 PM

    Everyone shut up and let DocBG talk…he’s got some important stuff to say.
    Packer fans – shut up (per DocGB) … you are not allowed to celebrate our past Super Bowl titles (You know, what DocGB team lacks) … you must forget them…it’s “insane”.

  44. TeflonDon says: Nov 8, 2009 8:27 PM

    The best part about the Packers loss and this post: all Packer fans calling to mind the Vikes’ 0-4 Super Bowl record and counting off how many titles their team has won, as well as letting us Vikings fans know that our season is likely to end in a disappointing playoff loss.
    Why this is great?
    It means that they’ve given up hope on their team exactly HALF WAY through the season, a season in which they themselves had Super Bowl aspirations. Rabid defense of over-hyped team: dead.
    Sweet taste. Very sweet.

  45. Vikes-N-Favre says: Nov 8, 2009 8:34 PM

    I was laughing my a$$ off all day at this game. Not only were the Bucs sitting at 0-7, but they started a 21 year old rookie making his first NFL start, and they still won by 10 points.
    The funniest part about it is that Rodgers got sacked another 6 times to push the league leading sacks to 37 so far through 8 games. He is on pace to be sacked 74 times this year. Ha ha ha. All that after talking smack all week that Clifton and Tauscher were starting for them. Truth of the matter is this, when you have a QB that hangs on to the ball that long, he is going to take a lot of sacks.
    It also doesn’t matter who is starting on that Pop Warner OL of GB’s, they are not that good at all. I have seen college OL’s that are much better then GB’s. What happened to that supposed shut down defense? They are getting wiped out each and every week, even by bad teams.
    This is Minnesota’s division hands down, they are just simply much better then the other teams in the division, and arguably the best team in the NFC. Sorry GB fans, maybe next year, or perhaps maybe not. LOL.
    SKOL VIKES!!!!!

    Really?? No chance??? Do you remember what happened to Denver last year?? They had a three game lead in their division just like the Vikings do right now and what happened?? They fell apart and San Diego came racing back and snatched the title away from Denver.
    Moron, just because your team has a large lead does not mean they are automatically winners. It isn’t over until it’s over.

    it only gets worse from here. Dallas next week prediction pain. Rogers won’t last the season. soyou can polish all your championships (most of them aquired before anyone on this message board was born) and bury them next to your quarterback. i predict 8 sacks for the cowboys next week, no I’m not a cowboys fan, I’m a vikings fan, and a fan of anyone playing the packers. What will the packer fans do if we do win the superbowl they will have nothing left to say. That would be awesome, but we’ll see.

  49. mnmark says: Nov 8, 2009 8:55 PM

    As a Viking fan nothing is in the books YET! We have plenty of holes and plenty of tightening up to do on every end of our game! I am happy the way our BYE weekend turned out no doubt but one game one play at a time. Favre still has some timing and communication issues that he needs to continue to work on and defensive secondary is failing in a big way (those are the BIG concerns of our holes). Packer fans need to face the reality it isn’t happening this year and we can enjoy it and rub it in….. tastefully… somewhat!! Simmer down and get real Vike Fans… we will do it but we need to be realistic as well!
    Go Vikes!!

    Jumping on the Pack at this point might be a 15 yard penalty. I won’t kick a dying dog. Some Pack fans resorting to pulling out the epic successes and failures of 10 years ago + = pathetic. It’s a new world now, and with Favre, it feels like any imagined “Viking curse” is simply a huge joke. If the only measure of success is a SB win, then 31 teams every year suck. Success is measured in encrements, and sweeping the Pack this year still tastes delicious! Keep TT and Mike McCarthy, they deserve to see how far they can sink!

  52. Ralph says: Nov 8, 2009 9:07 PM

    yes, the game wasn’t called the super bowl until after the merger.
    In 1969 the Minnesota Vikings were the NFL Champions who lost to the AFL Champion K.C. Chiefs.
    None of which matters, the past is for people who have nothing going on in the present, to talk about.
    Pitiful showing by the Packers today, it was embarrassing for even this Viking fan to watch the Packers revolving door. Aaron Rodgers doesn’t know how to win close games. Get used to it.

    To the Packer fans I never had a huge problem with Favre when he was in GB as a matter of fact if there was any dislike as a VIKINGS fan was because no matter how good a team is if you play Favre’s Packers your defense will have to play 60 minutes of good football. If the Vikings would give that guy half a chance he would beat us. So I hated losing to that guy, we typically split the wins but we coudl have swept a few years if not for Favre being GB QB mounting last minute drives.
    I never talked trash about Favre being to old or washed up. I am also a Joe Pa fan and loved every minute the 3 seasons since every one screamed he should retire the guy has put together 3 consecutive contending seasons.
    I was actually pulling for GB in there 90′s SB win and loss as well as the 2007 NFC championship game, once the Vikings were out I could be GB a fan, so I dont have this deep seated hate for the Packers but I am Vikings 1st.
    Without Favre GB has pretty much had the same team they had in 2007 Favre’s last season now GB has not been as good without him. So I dont think Favre was the cause of GB coming up short. And on the other hand he made a good team great in the Vikings. I do believe Favre kept the Packers from being the browns, 80′s 90′s colts, rams, he kept them relevant. because for 10 years he was the highest talent on the team.

    And to all the whiners who said Chilli had to go, Fire Chilli, blah blah blah, We now see it was not Chilli it was indeed the QB position that has lead to mediocre play the last few years. Chilli knew what Tjack was capable of what he was not. I think Chilli is a good coach and I think he will continue to grow. As a fan I am looking forward to it. And who knows Tjack is very young and at times has played great, eventually could be great all the time. Vikings have a great mix of age on the defense we should not lose more than a player every few years to retirement. Gradually replace the retirees.
    So enough of the fire Chilli griping. He was apart of drafting AP, Harvin, trading for Jared Allen, Hutchinson, and not getting rid of other good players who were already on the team. He has helped make this a reputable team with consistent discipline. Keeping players in check, ( no love boat scandal ) if you look at the Vikings off field issues have been minimal since Chilli and Wilf got there. They have been a top 8 team since then as well with QB play that has been mediocre at best. Doing alot with less.
    And GB fans the 4 years the Vikings lost SB’s there season lasted much longer than the GB’s did in those years. The Vikings had great playoff runs in the late 80′s as well as the late 90′s.
    So enough already you are digging for scraps.

  57. Vikingsfaninpa says: Nov 8, 2009 9:37 PM

    As a Viking fan nothing is in the books YET! We have plenty of holes and plenty of tightening up to do on every end of our game! I am happy the way our BYE weekend turned out no doubt but one game one play at a time. Favre still has some timing and communication issues that he needs to continue to work on and defensive secondary is failing in a big way (those are the BIG concerns of our holes). Packer fans need to face the reality it isn’t happening this year and we can enjoy it and rub it in….. tastefully… somewhat!! Simmer down and get real Vike Fans… we will do it but we need to be realistic as well!
    NO joke, they are giving up a lot in the secondary especially late in games which if it comes down to playing the Saints who have won often big late in games this year could be trouble. But there is time to fix it up. Looking at last years regular season Cardinals defense did not play as good as the playoff Cardinals defense played so it is never over until it is over.

    I love how whever things go bad for the Packers and good for the Vikings, the Packer fans pat them selves on the back for championships won when JFK was president and the NFL was 12 teams, and point out Super Bowls the Vikings lost when disco was popular.
    Just remember Packer fans, if any Atlanta Falcons fans talk trash to you, remind them who won the Civil War. It’s about as relevant as the other ancient history you cling to.

    You must be a Packer fan and can foresee the future. You realize that the Vikes will be on top of the division for years to come and are hoping/praying for them to leave.
    I have news for you, its not gonna happen. The league won’t allow it. First, they are *NOT* going to give up in the huge rivalry between the Vikings and the Packers/Bears. Second, it would cause major realignment issues and I can almost guarantee that will not happen either. The NFC North is basically perfectly aligned. The AFC however has big problems and realignment would be far better/easier.

  61. Beer Cheese Soup says: Nov 8, 2009 10:37 PM

    What a disgraceful and pathetic showing today. This just proves what I (and so many other now and former Pack fans) have said for a while now. This team will never be competitive until it gets some quality leadership.
    I thought it was funny. After reading all the Viking fans’ comments on here, I found that I actually agreed with most of them, and I HATE the Vikings, always have. That alone says a lot about the extent of the damage Thompson has done to our beloved team. “The proof is in the pudding”, and it’s certainly been shown over the course of the season. Fire Ted now.

    Packer fans think they can just fire Ted Thompson, and that will solve their problem.
    Wrong! The reason Ted Thompson has pinched his pennies so much–he even ran the greatest quarterback of all time out of town–is because the Green Bay Packers are facing potential bankruptcy in the future.
    It’s true. If there is a work stoppage, the Packers football organization might go broke. At that point, they could go under. On the other hand, They might have to be sold off to an international investor. London Packers, anyone? I don’t think English cheese sounds very good.
    It’s because of the real threat of complete financial collapse in future years that the Packers have, for years now, been pinching pennies. The Packers are the “youngest team in the NFL,” and the Packers have signed few free agents. This is to save money.
    Blame Ted Thompson all you want. At least he has a plan to keep the Packers in existence.
    Save the Packers. Keep Ted Thompson.

    Observations of the Packers train wreck:
    1) Oddity – in two weeks time, the Pack got beat by the oldest, most experienced QB and the youngest, least experienced.
    2) Rodgers is a really good QB, and probably the Pack’s QB for the next 10 years, if the line doesn’t get him killed. I’d only put Brady, Brees, P. Manning, ahead of him right now. On par with Rivers and Farve.
    3) Who is wearing Greg Jenning’s uni? Freddy Mitchell? Jennings has disappeared this year.
    4) GB coaching is horrendous. Played a guy starting his first game ever and made him look great. Played an old QB who couldn’t run and couldn’t get any pressure. Played backups against Jared Allen and didn’t figure out how to get the linemen some help to block him. Twice. QB holding the ball too long all season, with a bad line, and he’s still doing it. Kampman can’t cover anybody, but they keep dropping him into coverage. Where’s the coaching? Where are the adjustments?

    Do you think the Viqueens will lose another Super Bowl again this year??????? How many have you lost now? 4? I don’t know, almost too many to count.
    And the Packers have 13 NFL championships. Or is it 12? almost too many to count………get it?????
    Remember who rules. Packers over Viqueens forever.

  67. stetai says: Nov 9, 2009 2:29 AM

    to all the Packer fans. Answer me this simple question, that was easy to answer up until 2008.
    Who is the leader of the Green Bay Packers? Now be honest, and accurate, who is the leader of this team?
    Here’s another, what is the identity of the Packers? What type of team are they exactly?
    From 1992-2008, the answers to these questions come immediately. THIS is the fundamental problem with the team, they have no direction, no focus, and no leader. Aaron Rodgers is NOT the leader of this team. he is the QB, but he is NOT the leader. McCarthy? give me a break. Thompson? Everyone hates him and he can’t decide what he wants this team to be.
    Ted Thompson sent the Packers leader, Brett Favre to the Vikings and look at them.
    because you Packer fans are dumb, let me explain. The leader is the one who sets the tone, who carries teh team on his back, who wins games for his team in the final minutes, he speaks for the team, takes the heat, doesn’t blame, and inspires every member of his team to greatness.

    Once again, the NFL actually did exist before 1970 whether you believe it or not, and the Packers have twelve championships. Of course, none of that will save them from having yet another losing season THIS year.
    Nonetheless, if you’re going to call someone stupid, you should probably check the facts yourself first. It makes you look like a pretty huge douche when you don’t. Just a thought.

    I just love reading the comments about championships. Packers fans have so little to cheer about. One super bowl in the last 40 years. Wow your franchise is so amazing that I’m surprised feeble little Vikings fans like myself haven’t changed sides.
    Pulease. Who cares what your team did 50 years ago? I sure as hell don’t. When I watch football I watch the current game. And I’d rather have a team and organization that knows what the hell they are doing now than one that was good 25 years before I was born.

  79. Lance says: Nov 9, 2009 11:40 AM

    Lets compare apples to apples, guys….
    Since their beginning in 1961, the Vikings have won 17 division titles, appeared in the playoffs 25 years, and played in 8 NFL/NFC Championship games, and appeared in four Super Bowls.
    During those same years (1961 – present) the Packers have won 13 division titles, appeared in the playoffs 18 years, played in 6 NFL/NFC Championship games, and appeared in 4 Super Bowls.
    Consider in these numbers that the Vikings started in 1961 and it took until 1968 before they won their first Division, while the Packers had been playing since 1919, so 5 of their Division Titles were won while the Vikings were still building a team. So since 1968, the Vikings have won 17 division titles, while the Packers have won only 8. I’d say Vikings fans have had a lot to cheer about the past 40 years. The Super Bowl thing will work itself out with time. Maybe we’ll be there this year. Where will the Packers be?
    Btw, the Vikings played some awesome games this year against the Packers………….

    Thank you for posting that link. Maybe when these NFL know nothings on this site actually SEE the team made 4 million last year despite the economy shut up when it comes to “fake cap dollars” wah wah wah Thompson doesnt spend wah wah wah we are so far under the cap. wah wah wah. The truth is there is no money to spend. 4 million would get you what? 1 middle of the road free agent and then your a break even company.

  82. Supersuckers says: Nov 9, 2009 1:07 PM

    beer Cheese,
    you really shouldnt use sarcasm IE (I WONDER WHY THAT IS?????) when you don’t seem to get it your self. 4 million net. The differance was in investment losses. Like everyone else they lost money in the stock market. They ahve a financial team that invest their liquid cash and that was the reason their was a difference. Not wins and losses. I am embarrased for you again.

    If you like the link, you should go back and read the article. It says the Packers made 19 million in ’07, which dropped to 4 million in ’08. You can’t honestly blame ALL of that on the economy. I personally blame it on Ted showing half of our once-great fanbase the door and doing nothing but watch the team sink to 6-10. Now just imagine how much we’ll make this year after ANOTHER 6-10, and then if he’s still not gone, we’ll probably be firmly in the red in 2011.
    I may not be a financial genius, but I can read the writing on the wall. Ted’s philosophy is costing us far more than it’s saving us. You yourself said wins generate revenue. Have you seen any wins lately? Have you not seen half of what were once our fans wearing purple? Does that not affect revenues?
    All that article did was further prove my point. Ted must go NOW, or we won’t just be facing mediocrity. We’ll be facing bankruptcy. That’s right. Two more years of Ted could quite possibly mean the end of the Green Bay Packers. Is that what you want??

  85. Supersuckers says: Nov 9, 2009 1:59 PM

    Beer Cheese,
    I hate to say it but again I am embarrased for you. they sold every ticket to every game. They sold just as much of everything in 2008 as they did in 2007. The difference, for the third time, was they lost money in investment holdings. GEEEEEZ

    You SHOULD be embarrassed, but not for me. Even I know (and again, I’m no financial guru), that most of a team’s profit doesn’t come from tickets. Ted IS costing the team money, and even if that weren’t true, he’s taken a perennial playoff contender and turned it into a joke!
    I really hope your uncanny ability to ignore the blatantly obvious and live in denial doesn’t extend to other aspects of your life. Scary.
    I already know you don’t mind losing to 0-7 teams, and that you’re perfectly happy being 6-10 every year. There are more important issues at stake though. Again, two more years of your God could quite possibly mean the end of the Green Bay Packers. Is that what you want??

    beer Cheese,
    I havent seen a overreaction like your last post since the last time I farted and sat down on wet chair at the same time. Of course Im not happy being 6-10 and Im not happy losing yesterday. This isn’t on Thompson Beer. The things that are occuring are on the coaches. As little as we know it was obvious yesterday that Green Bay was the more talented team by far. They simply kicked the game away with their dumbass ways that havent been corrected. I dont knwo what else to say. I said yesterday to my friends that I thought McCarthy is coaching for his job these next 8 weeks. Thats the first time anyone has heard me say that.

  90. leatherneck says: Nov 9, 2009 6:58 PM

    McCarthy was extended a few years ago. He probably has a 2 or 3 more years remaining on his contract.
    The only way the Packers can afford to fire McCarthy and hire a new head coach would be to hire a rookie head coach who won’t cost them much.
