Wow the headline is a little misleading. I was about to say no wonder the Packers have problems If they communicate so little that its news when Ted and Mike meet to speak with each other.

ray nichkee's picture

Read the article al. It says ted speaks at 9 and mike speaks at 9:45. I will let you take that one back before I call you a dumbass, no wait your comment as a whole is worthy of calling you a dumbass. You are a dumbass al.

Stroh's picture

I think he meant just the headline, by itself, made it seem unusual that Thompson and McCarthy were speaking to each other on Friday. Not that they were speaking to the press on Fri.

ray nichkee's picture

But why does he think the packers have problems? I know everybody does but his comment appears to be coming from a negative view point. This isn't the jags or browns sight.

Stroh's picture

I'm not sure why he assumes there are problems, IIRC he does hold that opinion (which would be asinine). I was just pointing out the title was a little misleading in and of itself, till you read the tweet.

some guy's picture

wow guy, chill out. no need for that

I took it to mean that Al was joking.

GrEEn KniGhT's picture

Having the best QB/HB combo is an awesome problem to have! Will take that problem all day!

Cow42's picture

You may be right about this. Never thought of that. That is pretty cool.

Too bad the defense sucks.

ray nichkee's picture

Here you are again clown head cowpie, if the defense didn't suck what else would you bitch about. Do I smell bacon? No that is shit. Is it coming from your mouth or your ass?

Cow42's picture

But it does suck.
I mean it REALLY sucks.

The only time the packers sucked this year is thanksgiving in detroit. The other games were not that far off. The playoff game againts the 49ers was a damn good game. The only thing that sucked was the last minute of the last drive. I went to the game thinking all I want to see is a close game. The defense was without half its starters then shields goes down, mike neal goes down, datone jones is playing linebacker without ever playing that position. Somehow they held them to 23 points. That day the offense sucked worse than the defense and should have been able to score more than 20 points. Give the defense some credit. Nobody uses injuries as an excuse but at some point you need to get real. There are other good teams out there and nobody has been able to stand out year after year lately. It is a crap shoot in the nfl and all you can do is hang with the pack and hope you get lucky. The packers have done a good job of that and got a ring so why are you still a whiney bitch cowpie? Go cheer for a different team because you ain't cheering here.

Stroh's picture

Ray... In regard to injuries as an excuse. During the season you will never hear coaches or players use injuries as an excuse. However, once the season is over and you can look back on things, its perfectly plausible to determine the dropoff from a starter being out to his backup and wonder how many games that may have cost you. During the offseason is when you can look back and say "this team would have won x number of games" had these injuries not occurred. Now not every injury costs you games, but there is a cumulative effect, on ST for example, that can end up being a reason for losing a game or two. And when you lose a player of Rodgers ability and importance its easy to see how many games his injury may have cost you. IMO Packers would have been at least 11-5, more likely 12-4 and possibly 13-3 w/ Rodgers for the entire season.

"IMO Packers would have been at least 11-5, more likely 12-4 and possibly 13-3 w/ Rodgers for the entire season."

and then lost in the playoffs...

so who cares?

4thand1's picture

I seem to remember you saying how great it would be to beat the Bears at Soldier Field, and how it would make your season. Yet you still whine like a little baby. It must really suck to be you. And did you notice the Packers have the best fan base in the entire NFL? Apparently you're not part of it. Hows it feel to be in the 12%, we real fans were rated 88%.

cLowNEY42's picture

"I seem to remember you saying how great it would be to beat the Bears at Soldier Field"

Yep - that was a fun win.

What's your point?

That game had absolutely zero impact on my opinion of how they would do in the playoffs.

Only the homerist of homers couldn't see that they were a one-and-done team.

@ ray nichkee

Most of your above post is pure jibberish. ---- Can you handle a few facts?

2013 Season
The Pack finished on the D with the following:

25th in yards allowed. (372.3 per game)
24th in points allowed. (26.8 per game)
25th in rushing yards allowed. (125 per)
24th in passing yards allowed. (247.3)

I'll repeat. These are facts. (note: FYI, there are 32 teams in the NFL, in case you don't know)

Ted Thompson's picture

Goddamn you are you one fucking retard redneck troll. Post less and find some other site to bitch about the best team in the world. Every team has weaknesses but you are too busy playing with your vag to notice that. Dumbfuck!!

ray nichkee's picture

Dude! You are the same guy, clown cow 42. Get a life. You predicted last year the pack would finish 6-10. Then you said you were not off that much. I never heard you say rodgers would be out 1/2 the season and now your salty piss flaps are going again. You claim to be a fan of rodgers and now you won't accept the fact that when he was gone the team did what it could without him, made it to the playoffs, only lost by three points, and you still think they sucked? Your world must suck.

cLowNEY42's picture

Where to start on this one?

1 - when I made the 6-10 prediction I was asked to bet on it (don't remember who wanted to bet or what the stakes were).

Anyhow - they guy who wanted to bet wanted to throw a caveat in nullifying the wager if 12 went down. my response was F THAT! why should my attempt at winning a bet be effected by the lack of attention put into a backup QB plan? not my fault they decided to walk a tightwire without a net.

2 - "made it to the playoffs"... dude, the Packers didn't play themselves in to the playoffs... the rest of the division sucked its way out of the playoffs. they were 8-7-1 for darn's sake.

3 - the only reason they lost by 3 was the weather. i get a kick out of everyone who embraces the fact that the Pack only gave up 23 to the 49'ers in the playoffs like it's some sort of badge of honor. IT WAS LIKE -100 OR SOME SHIT! Any offense would have their balls cut off by that kind of weather.

4 - "yes" i think this Packer team lacks talent in a big way. the offense is not as good as people make it out to be (go check numbers vs actual playoff teams over the last 3 years) and the defense is absolutely putrid... confused, slow, and soft. i don't care what the numbers say - i truly believe that it is the worst defense in the NFL with less talent than any other defense in the NFL. go ahead and try to find another team who's top 3 defensive players are equal to or less than Matthews/Daniels/Shields. worst ILB group in the league. worst safeties in the league.

Arlo's picture

You need to quit responding to the extreme homers that visit this site. There's no way you'll ever convince them to view the G&G objectively.

Even CHTV has finally opted toward objective analysis. That's what 8-8-1 causes.

Eraserhead's picture

Bingo bango.

Stroh's picture

Now that's the smartest thing you've ever said. Can we get you to quite commenting too?!

Arlo's picture

Here's A Classic From Stroh: (Stroh is soooo classy)

"Scott, didn’t know I had to talk to you like you were a woman i wanted to have sex with. I guess I made the assumption that a man can talk differently to another man than he would a woman.

I think the one that needs mommy is you!"

Stroh's picture

You mean you don't talk differently w/ the guys than you do w/ a woman? Riiiigghhtt... Probably explains why your suck a grouch 100% of the time. Go buy yourself a hooker, maybe that'll help your "frustration".

I compliment you and you still act like a douche!

Ted Thompson's picture

You are not a fucking fan so fuck off and go root for your queerass Viqueens somewhere else. We have a lot to look forward but all of the fucking farmers in WI are such emo whiners that it kills reading any of the comments on here.

Eraserhead's picture

Homophobic comments. You are despicable.

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

ClowNEY, I don't agree with everything you say, but I agree with just about everything here. I don't agree on the SF game. I think it was pretty even. Both teams had to play in the weather. In all honesty, AR was off that game. (Maybe cause of the weather), otherwise, I think we would have won it. If you're not right on the defense, you're close. (4thand1), I respect your opinion, but I don't want 10 A.J. Hawks on GB. I don't want any!! I want linebackers who can tackle at the line of scrimmage, not 8 yrd's down field.
Mathews is an above average player, but over rated, & over paid IMO. Shields is too small, but we have no one else. He's no more than an average corner. Williams is also too small. I will say, I thought they both played pretty well at the end. I think we had 1 of the best offenses I've seen in some time, but little by little it we seem to be losing it. Our receiving core was the 1 bright spot on the team. Next year with Cobb, Nelson, & Boykin, it won't be much more than average. All 3 are Great receivers, but just about every team has Great receivers. I don't have the answers. If I had to guess, I'd say, we need to keep Starks, JJ, & Finley if possible, & throw everything we can into Defense. As far as the Franchise Tag goes, there is no one this year, that even comes close to deserving it. Those of you, who don't agree, I respect your opinion, but that's how I see it.

4thand1's picture

LOL, Tom, I posted that to get a rise out of a few trolls. How'd you make out in the SB. $$$$$$$$?

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

4thand1, I did Pretty Good!! Once again
the $$$$ LOST. I talked to my Host at Bally's last week. These are his words,
"Las Vegas" made a Fortune on that game. Denver -2 1/2. The whole world took that one. He said when Harvin ran that kick off back, the whole place emptied out. I wasn't there. I would have been the only one left in the Sports Book.

ray nichkee's picture

I don't recall anybody sticking up for the defense saying they are the best. It is obvious where improvment is needed. To degrade the team to the point you do is absolutly absurd. Nobody on here is claiming the defense is full of hall of famers. How about the jags, the skins, the cowboys with more playmakers than us? There are 31 other teams for you to go heckle.

Cow and arlo, use caution tonight when you guys jump in the tub together and bob for testicles.

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

Ray, Not sure if you were replying to me, but if you were, I wasn't heckling GB's Defense. I've said a number of times, If Healthy, with Mathews & Jolly, I think our Defensive Line is Decent. The problem as I see it, is behind the defensive line. Aaron Neglar responed to me that A.J. Hawk was having a Pro Bowl year. Others have the same feeling. Are you kidding me? The guy is Terrible, can't you see that? I don't care who's playing next to him. I don't take sides on this post. I speak for myself. The linebacking, as I've said a number of times before, is Pathetic, & A.J. Hawk is the so called leader. Trade him, if anyone will take him. Keep Starks, Keep JJ. (& Finley 1 more year if possible). Try to keep our offense in tact. Whether you agree or not, it's all we have going. Our defense needs to be built up as soon as possible. Shields is a good player, but not worth any Franchise Tag, neither is BJ. Free up whatever money we can, & get some new blood on defense. There are enough guys in college that can fill any of our defensive shoes, especially IL. That's my opinion.

ray nichkee's picture

Tom, you are not in the same category that cow and arlo are in. My comments were not directed to you because you are not a constant heckler, you are not constantly saying the packers suck, and foremost you answered my comment with dignity and respect. Your opinion I can respect without having to agree with you. I will disagree about finley every time because for every great play he makes he drops a pass, does something stupid, or gets hurt. He's not a pro bowler and is not worth his price tag. Hawk I will disagree on also. He had his best year. Do you know why? Because nobody else got there first to make the play. Was he great? No. Is his worthy of 1st rd draft status? No. Do I want everybody on defense to be like him? No. Is he doing a solid job? Yes. The only thing worse than your middle linebacker making most of the plays is your safety having to make those plays. That's when our defense would really suck and with the safety play last year there would be a lot more TDs scored on the pack. This defense is ripe for a major turnover and raji/shields are probably not worth what some teams will pay them but could fill a role at the right price.

LAS VEGAS-TOM's picture

Ray, I agree with you 1000% on Finley. He has yet to show me, that he can catch a ball, in or out of traffic. I was willing to give him another year because of his age. I just didn't see Hawk having a good year, maybe I'm missing something. Like you, I want what is best for the Pack. I'll be the 1st to say, I don't know what the pack needs to do to fix things. I'm glad we can agree to disagree on different things. I'm a fan of JJ's. I'm going to be sorry if he leaves. Your comment to me was also with respect. Thanks!!

ray nichkee's picture

I love humble guys like james jones who let their plays on the field speak for themselves. He loves the pack and knows it won't be better if he moves on but he is in a tough spot right now. I would love to see him cash in but its not happening with the pack. Good luck JJ. I hope I am wrong.

Eraserhead's picture

We can't let All-Pro types just go away! I say tape his neck, give him some steroids and have him play some damn football.

Ted Thompson's picture

Mindless fucking sheep, man WI people really are cow humping rednecks. I know it is tough for you inbred morons, BUT THINK FOR YOURSLEVES!!! FOR ONCE.

Arlo's picture

How many IDs do you actually have & post with?

You make alot of mistakes trying to be different with your alter egos.

You are a sad, sad person.

RC Packer Fan's picture

Maybe some from WI are, but not all... Don't lump all of us into one category.

I don't know where your from, but would you want to be lumped in with everyone from your state?

4thand1's picture

Who the hell is this asswipe Ted Thompmson? WI is a long way from the deep south you POS. It hurts that the Packers are contenders every year? Maybe because your team sucks. You sound like a Bear fan with hemorrhoids in prison.
