Nothing sucks more than getting up at 3 a.m. to drive to Green Bay only to bear witness to what I did today. This may be more appropriately called "Quick Rants" because that is what I am about to do.

Watch Game Highlights HERE.
The day started off well enough. Actually, I was thinking Lambeau looked pretty good at sunrise.
I thought the black Aaron Rodgers jersey would be the ticket. It wasn't.
We started tailgating right away. Even Cheesey showed up. Some great chili, amazing Jambalaya, and good times were had by all.
At one point I remarked to IronMan that we were living the dream. We snapped this photo at that moment.
Some dude on the board of directors even stopped by. He had a sweet, sweet ring on.
Before I get into the game, the highlight of my day was meeting Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal. Super nice cat. He's also younger and much taller than I thought. Bedard is the man now.
Then we went to the game.
Apparently we can't block, even with two tight ends to help on the edges. That was frickin' pathetic. Five sacks by a guy who had three all of last year? Seriously? I know Clifton went down, but it didn't matter. That was god awful. There were plenty of guys on the street ten fold better than some of this crew. Please, I heard Tauscher is 90 percent today. Give his ass a call, now.
I know Aaron Rodgers is under a lot of heat lately and probably has a case of happy feet. I don't have much to say about Aaron right now, but he looks uncomfortable, missed some easy throws, and quite frankly is going to get killed soon.
Listen up and listen up good. Ryan Grant sucks. He is worthless. The guy simply is not a good runner. I saw him miss holes all day long, and if he did hit them it was a walk. Not to mention that Grant simply cannot make anyone miss. When is the last time you saw Grant break ankles? The answer? Never. But, he'll work on fundamentals next week. What he should work on is staying off of Twitter and start looking for the hole. Nice fumble.
Speaking of Twitter, Nick Barnett can KISS MY ASS too. I paid $115.00 to watch you get blown up most of the game. And as far as your Samuri goes after that TFL, I sincerely hope you were doing that because you were so excited you weren't getting your ass handed to you trying to get off a block again. Don't tell me to kiss your ass. The fans made you, and with play like that, they'll break you too. I did however notice that you were questioning why there was even a rotation going on anymore in the linebacking corp. That part I understand. I can see where a rotation on every series has to make it hard to gel. Still, bitching at your fans is kind of bunk dude. We're all frustrated.
On the subject of rotations, why the hell is Poppinga in there? Put in Matthews and let him grow.
I understand why Kampman is pissed. He doesn't make any impact plays.
Jarrett Bush, you suck. Hard. I watched McCarthy chew your ass, if it wasn't for Collins going down you would have ridden pine all day.
Aaron Rouse, not too bad.
Charles Woodson is the man, period.
Can we please miss a shit ton more tackles? Please?
Third and thirty-four? Unbelievable. Even I knew that the draw or screen was coming. How can you let that happen? Pathetic.
Did I mention that Jarret Bush sucks?
Where on god's green earth was Greg Jennings? Well, he was dropping balls along with Driver, Finley, and Grant.
You know what? The team that plays the most violent usually wins. That isn't the 2009 Green Bay Packers. I watched perhaps the most uninspired Packer football I have seen in years. We talked about it last year, and here we are again. The team got its ass handed to it in almost every aspect of the game today. They looked unexcited, half enthused, and downright weak. They have no toughness.
We had all this talk about spirited camps, fights, and a revived tenactiy during training camp. I don't see any of it. At least we can put all this Super Bowl talk to rest.

I will talk to you guys on Tuesday, this was a hard pull to swallow. I'm worried, and I think I have good reason to be. I need a Rondo.
