Oh the Things Some Packers Fans Say…

Crazy Packers FansI like a good laugh as much as anyone. A hearty guffaw, a restrained chuckle, a snarky snicker – I like them all.

Usually, I like to laugh at things that are, you know… funny.

But there’s also this – reading things people say in all seriousness that are so ridiculous, all you can do is shake your head and smile at their ignorance.  (sorry, I don’t like calling anyone ignorant, but in this case, a better word escapes me).

If you visit a lot of Packers websites where people leave comments, you’ve surely encountered your share of knuckleheads. On some sites, they are the exception. I’ll bravely put this site in that category – after all, it took over four years before we had to ban our first idiot (Sorry Scott, but you were acting like a real dick – now hurry and go give a thumbs down to everything you see on this site).

On other sites, the mental institution escapees are rampant.

One such site is JsOnline.com, the web site of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The level of knuckleheadedness (if that’s not a word, I’m claiming it) is legendary. So legendary, in fact, that some smart person at the paper even created a twitter account (@JSComments) that just tweets the ridiculous rantings of these rectal ramblers.

If you’re on twitter, just follow that account and you’ll be treated to a stream of mind-blowing lunacy. For those non-twitterians among you (what’s wrong with you, by the way?), here’s a selection for your (and my) reading pleasure:

Comments on JSOnline.com:

It will be frustrating to see Bishop sack Rodgers 10 times in the first half during the first game.

Packers have no chance of another SB in this decade because fat boy and his woeful coaching staff are not fit to field a team & gameplan

Russell Wilson is no NFL QB. Its like the ending to the Rose Bowl, Wilson just flounders and cannot deliver due to his diminutive size.

Rodgers? Fragile. Landed on the IR without being touched. A concussion waiting to happen. Not exactly G.O.A.T (Favre) tough.

Thompson’s goal is NOT to win the Super Bowl with the Packers; instead, his goal is to win the #1 overall pick.

Take away the Super Bowl victories and they haven’t won any Super Bowls! (yes, someone really wrote that)

Picking the GBP Sweet Sixteen

March-Madness-Packers

March-Madness-Packers

As the NCAA Basketball Tournament is being played out across the land, I wanted to do something Packers-related with a “March Madness” theme. So here’s the idea:

We’re going to pick the 16 BEST players on the Packers roster.  And by we, I mean me and YOU – the readers. To make it simpler, I’ll pick the first 12. Then you will get to choose the last four from a group of 10 in the poll below.

This isn’t necessarily the Sweet Sixteen in terms of importance to the team (for example, Brett Goode might be in that group), simply the 16 best football players on the roster.

We’ll let the voting run through the weekend and announce the results on Monday? Sound good?

Disclaimer:  My top 12 are not necessarily ranked in order, they’re  just in the order in which they came to mind.

Green Bay Packers Sweet 16 – Best Football Players

1) Aaron Rodgers

2) Clay Matthews

3) Josh Sitton

4) BJ Raji

5) Ryan Pickett

6) Tramon Williams

7) Randall Cobb

8) Desmond Bishop

9) Morgan Burnett

10) Jordy Nelson

11) James Jones

12) Sam Shields

That last one was tough. I could have gone with Bryan Bulaga or Jermichael Finley, for example, but I’m still amazed Shields did not get drafted, with all the athletic ability he’s shown.

Anyway, now it’s your turn. You have the  difficult task of selecting the next FOUR players out of the rest that deserves to be in the Sweet Sixteen. The top four vote-getters will make the list! Ready? Go!

Packers Loss: Name the ONE Thing That Disturbed You the Most

Packers vs. 49ers: McCarthy - Harbaugh shake hands

An unhappy handshake for Mike McCarthy…

I’m always interested in seeing if other Packers fans are thinking the same thing I’m thinking. And always amazed about how so many people can watch the same game and see things so differently.

In any case, after watching the disappointing loss to the 49ers, there was plenty for everyone to not like. But if I had to pick just ONE thing that bothered me the most, what would it be?

What is YOUR one thing?

(yes, you only get one…)

 

I posted this question on twitter this afternoon and got an incredibly varied array of responses. Here are some of the replies:

- WR’s lack of ability to get open quicker

- The continued trend of MM/Rodgers inability to win close ones in the 4th quarter.

- The refs. we can fix mistakes cant fix refs

- in that the last 2 losses we’ve seen against good teams, they’ve gotten dominated.

- Secondary. Settle on the starters, nickel safety, and dime corner, and clean up the communication issues.

- Jarrett Bush as starting corner

- just one?!? I’ll say being out-coached at home.

- - weeping. OH you meant in the game…

- That Finley still hasn’t matured. His reaction to his drop and walking over the defender in endzone which got him cleated.

- the fact they view bush and M.D. Jennings as starting players

- coaching! Lack of any gameplan or making adjustments! Wake up & react.

- Bush being all cocky after 2 plays knowing the entire secondary was playing like shit all game

- I was going to go w/the late flags or no calls on both sides but I’ll go with #Packers had NO fire in them!

- playing what seemed like a prevent defense where there was a 10 yd cushion between every receiver an DB. Or so it seemed

- why  Capers was giving 10 yds cushion to receivers in 1st half. Was he afraid of a long pass by A Smith? Short pass killed

- The final score

- middle lb play… Always seemed to be step or two late

- Jarrett Bush being on the field…

- the secondary (yes, Jarrett Bush, I am looking at you) is still anemic and making the same mistakes as last year.

- I’d go w/ Rodgers’ struggles when 49ers disguised blitzes and coverages. Disciplined D’s will keep doing it.
