Woo hoo! 8-1!!!
And don't it beat being the run-away leader of a weak conference than being at or near the bottom of that same, weak conference???? :lol:
Didnt take long...
I couldn't ask for a better win for #9!
GO PACK GO!!!
Looking at their remaining schedule, 16-0 is possible. Detroit (2 games) is done, TB is horrible, KC is a joke, Oakland & Chicago are inconsistent...only the Giants pose a serious threat.
I'm still trying to absorb the level of Rodgers' play this year - we are seeing some historic QB performances. I keep reminding myself of the 2 weeks before the 2005 draft watching ESPN, where the "experts" were questioning "if Rodgers could handle a complex NFL system so different from his college schmea", and also questioning out loud on shows "if Rodgers has the mobility and armstrength for the NFL". Over those 2 weeks, Aaron dropped from a "sure #1 pick" to the green room waiting game and #24 pick.
Mel Kiper - thank you. That brainless assessment has helped fuel that player towards one of the greatest runs of QB play in NFL history.
Other teams are likely taking notice...this is how you build a franchise...make smart draft choices, nurture players and keep them signed together as a team...and watch things grow.
They will lose some time this year...but in the mean time...it is a fun ride - 15 in a row counting last year. WOW.
I can't believe the expectations that I and other people have on this team this year. Watching some of the other games this weekend really makes you think back to the years where you just wait for your team to fall apart.
Packers fans are so lucky to have had Favre for all of those years and then have Rodgers as a backup that we never really needed to use. So much time learning the game had to have helped him become what he is. It sure is fun for now.
10-0! Looking forward to Thanksgiving.
So am I, should be 3 great games
Perhaps even more astounding than Roger's stellar year is the fact that Alex Smith, our maligned Niner QB was mentioned as second only to Rogers in some category or other.
And the Bears just hit a major road block... Jay Cutler out at least 6 weeks, broken thumb on throwing hand.
And they play the Packers in how many weeks?
5.... Here is to hoping nothing is on the line for both teams and te playoffs are locked up already.
Looks like Cutler may be done for the entire year, post-season and all. I hope not, but this does put a major crimp into their trying to knock off the Packers on Christmas night.
They are saying now they expect him back this season. Who knows?
Who's "they"? Head Coach Lovie Smith, who is an idiot and has no clue what's even going on half the time? Cutler hasn't even had surgery yet.
Several news stations along with other sports media folks here believe he's gone for the regular season at least. I hope not, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's at least that bad.
Note the opening words: "The Bears are confident...". That means the coaching staff and upper management. What would one expect them to say? One report says, "The team is hopeful."
Word around here is that he's done for the regular season, and if they have to put any kind of rod into his thumb, his entire season is done. Some orthopedic surgeon was on the radio this afternoon and said he believes that if reports are accurate according to what he has heard, Cutler is done.
I hope it's neither; I hope he's back sooner.
