Man what a crappy day for a Packers fan.  A heartbreaking loss in Atlanta, that was only our fault.  Goal line fumble and the face mask at the end,stupid stupid.

Anyway I had a great post in my mind with Jordy Nelson having such a great game.  Jennings still had more yards but Jordy was second and had the only recieving TD.  The tying TD in the 4th no less.  I've been waiting for Jordy to get some action.  He was the punt returner the past 2 seasons and now it seems the Packers are finally seeing his potential as a wide reciever.

So in honor of JD's good game here are some of my favorite Jordy cards from my collection.

This beautiful sophmore jersey card.  I picked this up for a buck at my favorite LCS, Don's Sportcards, off his drop zone wall.  Bowman Sterling #d 052/399.

A great pick up from this years Topps set.

A beautiful rookie auto from Topps Stadium club.

And my favorite.

2008 SPX triple relic auto #d042/599.

Stupid Bears.

Ding Ding.

Oh I'm planning on having a good week next week.  A three day work week followed by a 4 day weekend.  I'm 20 days from closing on my house.  The Pack is tied for first in the NFC north and we got Atari back.  Now to sweep the Viks Sunday and it'll be a super happy Thanksgiving for Charlie Brown.  Looks like Sydney Rice might make it back for this game to help make it interesting.  I've been jonesing for my Pack.  Last week was their bye week, the last bye week of the season and I'm hoping everyone got a nice rest and some good practice in.  I have to say the Packers-Vikings rivalry is probably one of the best in the NFL.  Now I know that the Packers-Bears rivalry is older and more ingrained but while I have no hatred for my cousins to the west I hate the Vikings.  I mildly dislike the Bears but I like deep dish pizza and rooting for the cubs with my fiance even though I'm not a big cubs fan I like the underdog and the cubs have been underdogs so long it's hard not to like them and they've got quite a dry spell going on there. And I've always wanted to go see a game a Wrigley Field.  It's funny I don't hate the Twins either as a matter a fact I find myself rooting for them all the time, especially this playoff season.  But for some reason I hate the Vikings.  I don't know why.  Yes it's infused in my Wisconsin blood, but seems highly unnatural.  Maybe it's Favre,who oddly enough I don't hate either,  must be what 16 years as a Packer god does to me.  I was glad he had a good season last year, but not so glad that he beat us twice.  So I'm hoping that we get to return the favor this year. 

As a practicing Cynicalbuddhist I find hate very counterproductive, yet somehow I allow myself to hate the Vikings.  But oddly enough I don't find myself hating the players or for that matter the fans.  I have many friends that are Vikings fans and we give each other an ungoddly amount of shit but there is no hate there. 

Other than that I'll either be a happy poster come Monday or a very angry poster and you wouldn't like me when I'm angry!!!!!

The long weekend.

The Pack are coming off their bye week looking to do what Favre did to us last year, sweep.  While not everyone is coming back healthy or at all in Tauscher's case at least we are looking better.  Now all I can hope for is a win at the Metrodome.  I also hope the boys enjoyed the week off cuz it ain't going to get any easier here on out.

Bye Al, and Good Luck

Just saw over the wire that Al Harris was released from the Packers.  Al's been in rehab since last November and while it would be awesome to have him back I can see the logic.

The full story is here.

I remember years ago when it was the dread boys on the corners,  Al Harris and Mike McKensie,  those were the days.

Week 9 45-7 Cowwho?

You might remember my rant a few weeks ago.  No that's cuz nobodies following this blog get on that!

Anyway, I declared the season over, my hopes dashed my dreams smothered, not that I'm a fairweather fan, far from it.  I'm just a realist.  But there is hope.  After shutting out the Jets last week, which, was a defensive job, seeing that we only got close to the endzone never in it, and routing the Cowgirls yesterday I have hope.

I'm glad Clay Matthews is healthy.  Now if we could get a few other guys back we might have a go at this thing yet.

I do feel bad about the late in the 2nd quarter non fumble TD but we didn't need it, although I'm sure it was a moral destroyer for the Cowboys, sorry Captain.  It really surprises me how bad the Cowboys were on Sunday.  I mean, yes Romo's hurt but you've got a hell of a back field and it's not like Kitna's a rookie, he's got quite a bit of field time. 

I will say this, that going into our bye week things are looking a little rosier. 

cb out.
