2011 Season Facts & Championship Game Fantasy Qualifiers

2011 Season Facts & Championship Game Fantasy Qualifiers

0: The number of playoff games won by Caleb Hanie and Aaron Rodgers combined.

0 %: The worth of the Packers having gone 15-1 and winning the NFC North.

4%: The perceived talent gap between the Bears and the Packers which Ted Phillips used as his reasoning for the letting go of Jerry Angelo. Apparently now the Bears have a large talent gap separating them and the talent-lacking Giants. (The Giants are not that good. This was a monumental collapse by the Packers.)

0: The number of Super Bowls won by the Packers this year and the number of murder convictions on OJ Simpson's record.

Love you all.

  • A regular season
    of 15 and 1
    Brings LITTLE satisfaction
    When the post-season is 1 and DONE!

    Burma Shave.

    Beautiful poetry.

  • Artoo - that article was terrible. Turrr-uh-bull..

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Did you go through all of them? It starts off bad but I liked getting Jackson.

  • Let's start with this, a) Laurent Robinson.

    After this year, does anyone seriously think the Bears would pursue anyone from Dallas, much less another bench-warming WR?

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Cogent point, MBHP, but after firing jerry Angelo did you seriously think his hand-picked successor, Tim Ruskell, would still be being mentioned as a GM candidate???

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    The article also points to what a weapon Desean Jackson is, and how he's earned a big pay raise this year.


  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Ok. Laurent Robinson is not as bad as you think. The Bears should not overpay like the article said but he should be considered.

    Jackson would be ideal for the Patriots or some place where they can control him. He is what we hoped Knox would be.

  • He hardly outplayed Knox this year on a per game basis, and he had marginally better numbers last year (-barely)...and he's a massive PITA. The guy is poisonous.
    Sorry, DJ gets no love here and anyone that thinks he's going to get "paid" this offseason is delusional.

  • I have saved that tripe to keep score when signings actually begin.

  • I've got to join the Fudgies on the sidelines for the rest of the playoffs. I'd take that tradeoff every time. WOO-HOO!

  • Love seeing them lose like that. Speaking of the talent gap, is there really one?

    QB: Rodgers is better now, If Cutler finished the season though is there that big of a gap? Cutler is pretty good I think
    RB: No question about it, Forte is a top 5 back in the league, maybe top 3, Starks and Grant probably are not in the top 25
    WR: Packers have us here no doubt about it
    TE: Finley is supposed to be better but he drops WAY too many passes for my liking, our TE fit better with what we want to do I think
    OL: Honestly, not taking injuries into account for either team, the lines are about even
    DL: No doubt our DL is better, Julius Peppers might be the best DE in the league even though stats don't point that way
    LB: Clay Matthews is good, Urlacher and Briggs are better, much better
    DB: This year and going forward I think our DBs are better, just look at todays game for evidence

    I cant imagine them spending big money on free agents, who would want to live in Green Bay anyway? If we get a premier FA (Nicks, Colston/Bowe, Mario) we easily have more talent.

    Didn't mean to ramble, just pumped that the Pack lost and we are that much closer to next season.

  • In reply to do53:

    QB includes three spots. Flynn is way better than McCown and Harrell is supposed to pretty good to the point where they may off-load Flynn soon.

    OL - they dropped both tackles and didn't miss a beat.

    I'd match up our starters with the rest, but they do appear to have more depth. We'll see what the story is next year. I knew they'd go nowhere without defense.

  • Would you pay top-5 money to your backup QB?

  • In a game of inches, it should be called a game of milliseconds.

    If Finley makes that catch (he was open), it's 1st and goal.

    If Osi Umenyiora doesn't swat that ball out of Rodgers hand, Jennings is WIDE open in the Endzone and that was where Rodgers was going.

    The Giants trio of wideouts are all weapons. They are as good a trio as what the Warner Cards had, what the Steelers had in beating the Warner Cards, and even the Moss Pats that the Giants knocked off. Each of them are complete wideouts - speed, hands, and over the middle catches. Nicks is an incredible weapon, spinning away and breaking to the endzone in that early TD.

    In a post-season that purported to break all the rules, it turns out the death of great defense may have been premature. Only the Pats stand with a low ranked D, and the thing with Bellicheat is, forget how the D played in the regular season, he will bring the witches brew with him to the playoffs.

    Ed Reed apparently wanted to put his stamp on his HOF career today, and great D beat great O all around.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    The G-men's receivers and O-line make Eli look way better than he is. I'd love to see Eli with our receivers and the line that was. So grateful for putting a beatdown on the Pack though. At least we're not facing a dynasty in the NFCN.

  • Hey Cheeseheads ... where yo at ?

    (These aren't the droids you're looking for)

    Irish won the playoff contest and will receive a bank transfer of the equivalent cash value .....

  • DO, I think you're comparing the Bears at their best to the Fudgies at their worst (what a shame!). Rodgers is better than Cutler, our RB's are better, their WR's are MUCH, MUCH better, Finley with all the drops is still much better than our TE's, their OL is much better at pass blocking (we're better at run blocking but pass blocking is more important these days), on D our front 7 is better than theirs and their back 4 is better than ours, ST's are pretty even except we've got Devin and Toub (who knows for how much longer) Their offensive coaches are much better than ours and our defensive coaches are better than theirs. Overall we're slightly better on D and they are light years better than us on O. Also, their best players are in their prime and our best defensive players are on the downside of their careers. If they lose a couple of good players and we add about 4-5 it will make a huge difference. Hope we do.


  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    Good point.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    In their ocular cavities...

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    lol U mad bro?

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    Hee hee.... Hee hee


  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    And so say all of us.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    No way the Bears have the kinda talent the Giants have.

  • In reply to Jeff Hughes:

    Well said, this was a gift to Bears fans n they defending the Pack... shame on them

  • Did anyone who DIDN'T pick the NE O actually make it to the next Bears Blog contest?

    Unofficially, I picked

    Gmen O +24
    Ravens D - 6
    Texans Sp Teams -1

    That ain't shabby, but NE lit it up.

  • yeah, if they picked the SF or New England special teams.

  • This bares repeating...

    Oh, schadenfreud, you warm my cackles on this cold wintry night.

    Angelo terminated. Gmen doing the double-dicount over broken Cheezedicks at Lambeau...

    Oh, how sweet it is. This is how I feel...


  • English version...


    In the famous words of porky pig

    "That's all folks!"

  • With all the dropped passes and FA WRs available, I wonder if the Pack are gonna target a few WRs in the offseason?

    Donal Driver is likely gone. Finley didn't do much. Neither did Nelson or even Jennings.

    Then again, their D got lit up all year.

  • Got a question for you guys. Due to timing, does the Giants victory effect the Bears GM search one way or another? How does this effect the Bears decision to interview Ross if any? Could it cause the Bears to make a move before the Giants season is over?

  • Random thoughts on the Fudgers:

    Rodgers takes the last game off. The last time he threw a ball was Christmas night. Overthrowing Jennings et al was not a mistake it's being rusty. That's on the coach.

    8 dropped passes for Rodgers? Ouch.

    Peprah thinks he can hit a much heavier receiver with his shoulder and ... what ... exactly? It's called tackling Charlie, you ain't no Dick Butkus.

    No fumble? You look at the replay under the hood and you still don't see that? Really?

    Roughing the passer? Really?

    Packers lose after going 15-1. Sweet. Bill Murray sweet.

  • Don't under estimate the Giants peaking at the right time Irish. I kinda saw them picking up some major steam at the end of the season. Very loaded team with dangerous potential. Do you think the Bears will sweeten their offer to Ross now?

  • I'm not seeing Wacko Flacco go into Chowdatown and beat the Patties on home turf.

  • In reply to gpldan:


    Although I'd like to gp

  • 37-6

    I'd like to see those two disgusting calls investigated. The second could be chalked up to just disgusting officiating... The first was reviewed and was a crime... Grand theft. I want someone to break that grift wide open.someone was purposefully trying to keep the game close/interesting/keep the packers winning. It's the only possible explanation isn't it?

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Thats what I'm talkin about MB!

  • Considering Vernon Davis broke down in tears after his catch on Saturday, I'd have to say I think the 49ers are in for a big emotional letdown against the G-men next week.

    I'm thinking rematch: Pats-Giants II

  • Retraction:

    I mis-identified the totally inept Referee in the Packer game yesterday as Pete Morelli.

    It is, in fact, "Blindman" Bill Leavy who gets to take a seat next to fellow incompetants, Ed "Lookit Me! Lookit Me!" Hochuli and Ron "Which Way To The Buffet" Winter.

    I apologize to Mr. Morelli. For now, anyway.

  • Strategy session:

    Mike McCarthy's first Onside Kick call yesterday was:

    1) A bold coaching move.

    2) Somewhat ill-advised.

    3) An act of desperation that screamed
    "I realize my defense can't stop these guys!"

    Sorry. No "all of the above" allowed.

  • Sign of the times:
    Picked up a carton of milk this morning and there was a
    "HAVE YOU SEEN ME" picture of Clay Mathews on it.

  • NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Did anybody choose the Patriots O and D?

  • I think it is going to be tough after next week for
    Da blog fantasy playoffs. I'm wondering how many units people will have eligible to pick from come Super Bowl.

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    My available picks:

    Offense: Ravens, 49er's
    Defense: 49ers, Patriots, Giants
    ST: Patriots, Giants, 49er's

    If I chose my offense wisely this week, Trac wins.

  • In reply to TracDaddy:

    But what happens for Superbowl?
    My available
    O - Ravens Niners Giants
    D - Niners Giants Pats
    ST - Ravens Niners Giants

  • In reply to #76 Mongo Murph:

    49er's on O, D & ST?

  • I live n Wis and they were calling this the greatest team ever, what a joke!!! Good they didnt make a song about it like the real greatest team ever did...

  • Does any1 else disagree with almost everything Jeff tweets? Rosenbloom may be a clown, but he's right, absolutely 100% correct regarding the Bears TE situation - and I said it yesterday. Not to mention conversing with that D bag Jeff Pearlman.

  • In reply to Shady:

    I would rather have a tightend that can block and catch than just catch.

  • Thanks for the deep thoughts Erik.

  • In reply to Shady:

    hee hee.

    You go get some of that vacation boy... you go get some. Give danniella a call maings. You go get that vac BJ.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Haha yeah, you remember that huh? She's way too smart to fall for that, I need to use my ninja skrills before and of that goes down. (you see how?)

  • In reply to Shady:

    Go get it ninjanuggets.

    I did.

  • In reply to Shady:

    Who peed in your coco puffs?

  • From the looks of things, Count Chocula.

  • 15-1 AND DONE

    Packers Fans!!!! Do you feel cheated? Do you feel sad? Are you beating your wife or yelling at your kids right now for Crabtree's drop or Finley's or giving up the hail mary like Chris fucking Conte? or just in general being beaten down by Jacobs?

    Not even Bishop trying to cheap shot Manning's head could stop the Giants as they rolled the fuck over the Packers and made Green Bay look like Tampa Bay.

    15-1 AND DONE

  • In reply to Waffle 2.0:

    or the fake Roughing the Passer call OR THE FUMBLE call?????

    Holy shit how many fucking breaks does a team need for the league to let you back in the "asskicking"...i mean game?

    Let the fucking crying begin.

  • In reply to Waffle 2.0:

    Actually Johnny Waffle, I feel pretty good.

    The Packers played lousy and they got handled. I got really drunk and yelled a lot. It happens. You can't win them all, and you can't complain about 13 'ships in 90 years.

    The Packers took the Halas trophy from the Bears at Soldier Field. Everything that's happened since that game has been a big fat bonus, including XLV. I honestly didn't care half as much about winning the super bowl as I did that game.

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    Cheese, i want you to feel good. I want you to not beat your significant other or children when the Pack loses or when hunting season is over.

    I am excited that you are staying positive and am hoping that maybe not you but some of the other parts of Packer fandom will take this opportunity to hold on to the memory of last year if it will, at the very least, keep child and spousal mortality and abuse rates moderately low for 2012.

    I believe you live in Cali so there is a chance that you will be less impacted by the catastrophic post season failure that is the 2011 Packer team. You have beautiful weather and women, great seafood and decent surfing. Your posts are usually less idiotic than some of the gems that show up here from time to time so I guess my concern is more about their well being and how it will impact their lives going forward. Will they be less cocky, boastful, annoying, etc? Will some of these specimens we've seen with IQ's ranging from 80-95 just go into complete douchebag meltdown mode? Only time will tell.
    I think you will be fine. Please reach out to some of those guys though so Mike McCarthy's wife doesn't get hot coffee poured on her whilst shopping at the Kroger. The only Kroger in town...literally the only store in Green bay.

  • In reply to Waffle 2.0:

    well said Johnny.

    Chee-say, common maings. I give you that you're the only packer troll that has the onions to show up here after last night’s debacle, but please don't insult your own intelligence and our shared llama-mater by saying that you're holding onto something that happened almost 3 NFL seasons ago!? Did I read that correctly?

    Just take it like a man, maing. 15-1 to what we all saw last night was a monumental fucking meltdown any way you ginsu. I mean holy Wow.

    And yes, maybe it’s cheap of us to bask in the lovely warm glow of it all… but here at least, those feelings have been engendered by your brethren’s lack of class (sometimes you partake sadly) every week. All in all, you know that if this was a packer blog and fortunes were switched, there would be big celebration. Think of it this way… at least we aren’t searching out packer blogs to talk smack and gloat on.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    3 seasons ago? The Bears beat the packers less than 365 days ago......

    But yeah, are you kidding me? I'll be holding on to that for 30 years. That game was bigger than any super bowl.

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    fair enough.

    You enjoy that... and i'll enjoy this.

  • In reply to thebigcheese:

    The Bears beat the Packers less than 365 days ago? Really? Woo-Hoo!

    I know what you mean though, cheese. You feel like the Pack just got bitch slapped by the Bears. You're putting up a brave front but it hurts like hell, don't it. That's ok. You can let it out. No use trying to choke back your tears around here.

  • In reply to Crunch Buttsteak:

    I meant to say that the Packers beat the Bears*, sorry

  • In reply to Waffle 2.0:


  • Cheesy... I think I figured out why rodgers played so badly last night.

    I swear, that's him! He really thought tebow was gonna do it:


  • You're my maing mail mang, maing.

  • Just for fun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRVAHd-dyfY

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    and don't be too sad, it's not all bad for Aaron.


    (too bad he's gay)
