I didn't want to believe it, in fact I ignored it. But I knew it all along. The 2009 Green Bay Packers are about as far from contenders as they come. Here are the quick hits from tonight's debacle.
Packers 20 Vikings 30
Watch game highlights HERE.
The entire offensive line should be replaced.
Aaron Rodgers cannot get rid of the ball, period. Sorry you are not elite right now.
Jermichael Finley had a coming out party. Too little, too late.
Was that a successful screen I saw? I think it was.
Ryan Grant actually made a guy miss, twice.
Where the hell is Greg Jennings, enjoy that loot Greg.
James Jones is a bust.
You aren't going to win games if you drop balls, repeatedly.
Terrible challenge by McCarthy in the first quarter.
Terrible goal line play calling by McCarthy in the second quarter.
Donald Lee, you suck.
Speaking of sucking, when you are bringing in Jarrett Bush to replace your new safety that you let Anthony Smith go for, you're screwed.
Tramon Williams had a terrible game.
So did Al Harris.
So did Derrick Martin.
Clay Matthews is going to be a player. We could use some.
Aaron Kampman is a bust plain and simple. Impact player my ass.
Nick Barnett needs to be replaced, now. You have seen that tight end drag since junior high.
You gave Brett Favre almost 20 seconds to throw the ball. Pathetic.
Spencer Havner continues to play tough on special teams.
The refs were terrible in this game, not that it mattered.
That could be it for Blackmon, thanks for three good games in your career Will.
Jordy Nelson did a nice job all night long.
I am leaving on vacation tomorrow until next Monday, and I couldn't be happier. I will leave you with this to chew on in my absence.
Ted Thompson has failed and failed miserably. The difference between the elite teams in the NFL and the Green Bay Packers was their willingness to bring in seasoned impact players, something the front office in Green Bay refused to do. When the fans know what the team needs more than the general manager it's time to go. We don't have the talent, we don't have the passion, and subsequently we don't have a chance.
It doesn't matter how good your coaches are if you don't have enough good player to coach.
The 2009 Green Bay Packers are average at best. Aaron Rodgers is not going to last the season, and only a fool thinks that things are going to get any better. You all can go ahead with your happy wait until next week attitude if you wish. But, the only thing you should be wishing for is 2010.
See you next Monday, maybe.
