The biggest game of the season so far. I predicted a Packer’s blowout. Right now, I’m worried. That’s usually a good sign.
Here’s how things went down.
Gameday Conditions: Going with the standard stream and TV setup with two gameday chats. Pre-game meal was coffee, might do some homemade chocolate chip cookies along the way.
Custom Packer’s Reggie White tribute sweatshirt is going.

Watch the Packers highlights.
Really nervous. Too many big plays to start.
Saved by a penalty. This could be the play of the game already.
I really think you have to challenge that slide spot.
Jarrett Bush making a bone head play. He’s back. Those are the little things I said the Packers could not do and still win.
It’s time to just dump Pat Lee. A useless player if you ask me.
Absolutely LOVE the adjustment to the no huddle.
Daryn Colledge is getting owned today.
Every week the announcers say Aaron Rodgers never gets any credit for rushing while praising his rushing. Just say he’s awesome. Thanks.
Good call to take the field goal on fourth down. Bad call to give it to Nance up Colledge’s rear.
Harry Douglas is still the best name in football.
Brett Swain just made my day.
Jordy is quietly having a nice half.
James Jones WILL replace Driver next year.
Seriously, Mike McCarthy is the worst 1 yard goal-line play caller in the business. Get your quarterback killed. Moron.
The front four on defense are saving this game for the Packers.
Why the hell did McCarthy not challenge that catch? Even I saw it. MM is losing this game for the Packers so far.
Dumb Comment of the Half: “Mike McCarthy should be considered coach of the year.”
The run blocking is completely non-existent. Complete and total failure.
It’s Atlanta’s first drive of the third. If they score here, the Packers will lose.
I know it worked, but trick plays are not the answer. Bad play call.
The ref’s continue to not call personal fouls on Aaron Rodgers. It’s blatant now.
It’s a whole new ball game now. Aaron Rodgers for the win!
Wow. The tackling on the third and ten was so pathetic words can’t describe. The three man rush was even more disgusting. I can see that costing us the game.
Clay Matthews had been shut down for the most part so far.
Desmond Bishop is playing lights out however.
Could almost say the same for A.J. Hawk. Solid for the most part.
This pass at the goal line should be ruled a drop. Let’s see.
Ruled complete and no touchdown. I’ll take it I guess.
Crap. Clearly getting out coached here.
That is a bullshit call on Shields. Total and complete bullshit.
How many third and shorts can you get in one game? Apparently, a shit ton.
Aaron Rodgers held the ball WAY too long on 4th and one. The guy has no clutch, no clutch at all.
Shutting everything down for this drive with 5:15 left.
Daryn Colledge with the obligatory drive killing penalty.
Wow. Holy shovel pass batman. Wow, just wow. Street ball baby. Yeah, you can say, “looked like Favre” there.
It’s 4th and goal. Again.
I take back that whole Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been clutch thing. First time for everything.
And the Packers lose. Great.
Dumb Comment of the Half: “Do you think Popeye had people buy spinach for him?”
I don’t have any. Coaching killed this game. McCarthy got out coached, and the three man rush killed us again. Nothing new there. Home field advantage is probably a thing of the past as of now. Perhaps the playoffs.
