    James Starks has been very impressive in limited action. He reminds me of Ryan Grant. I hope he has established himself as the #1 back for the remainder of the postseason. Brandon Jackson can be demoted to his ideal role, third down back.

    I offer my congratulations to the Packers and their fans on their hard fought victory today! That was an exciting game right down to the end. Kitten, what you said about Philly being treacherous... you have no idea. Had the opportunity to go to an Eagles-Cowboys game back in '01 and the fans there are as rude as they come. Tailgating? Yes, they tailgated and when Cowboy fans with a child walked by (they were minding their own business and just making their way to the stadium) a couple of the Eagles fan walked over and started screaming at them and scared the hell out of the child. The other Eagle tailgaters were laughing.

    I've tailgated at Vikings (of course), 49ers, Raiders (seriously! lol), Rams, Bears and a few Packers games in my lifetime and they always treated me and my family, as well as the opposing teams fans, with respect and were quite friendly. Shared a beer and some brats. Eagles fans? Flat out awful.

    Again, grats to you and it would be rather funny if you ended up beating the Falcons, Seahawks then the Ravens in the playoffs. All you need are some mashed potatoes, gravy and some stuffing to top off a Super Bowl victory!

    I was thinking this as I read another one of his posts earlier today. I'm cool with it. I like discussing other teams with reasonable fans. It's the as****** who foster the rivalry.

    What a great game today! Dom Capers looks like a genius. Very smart to put Sam Shields on Jackson, matching speed with speed. I also liked the way Capers blitzed Vick, using different linebackers and defensive backs.

    James Starks looked great today. Aaron Rodgers played an amazing game, limiting turnovers.

    The only bad part was James Jones. That drop at the end of the second quarter could have cost GB the game. Rodgers could not have placed the ball any better.

    LOL! The Eagles fans are blaming the loss on an "unknown" running back (Starks) that they didn't prepare for. Clay mauling Winston Justice, David Akers 2 missed FGs, Vick not running the ball as often as they should, Vick;s INT to end the game, and Aaron having way too much time to throw the ball.

    I love the way they talk about the "unknown" running back!!! It's STARKS!!!!

    He looked so lonely. Nobody would sit near him. His off season started early.

    That was really a mismatch. Clay just killed him the whole game.

    Thanks Ivo and Incubes! There are a few Packer/Bear/Lions fans on a couple of the Vikings sites that talk football and 'friendly' smack and they are knowledgeable when it comes to conversing about the game of football. I enjoy the conversations with them all. Then, like every fan site, you have the trolls that come on and are there to stir up trouble and foster ill-will. Those are the type of people who can't be reasoned with and you simply ban their I.P. address.

    I just love talking football! Now I am waiting for my home state Oregon Ducks (Green and Gold lol!) to take it to Auburn tomorrow night! Glad to participate here and let you know, not all Viking fans are irrational twits. heheheheh

    Ivo is a great guy, easy to agree with.

    Packers did it, yes, didn't listen to me saying no nailbiters at the end, but they scraped a Playoff win. Sorry Philly fans, but thats all Vick wrote.

    Starks wasn't unknown to anyone who pays attention to the Draft. He fell down everyone's Boards due to his Senior year injury. What we saw today is consistent with what he showed in college at Buffalo.

    Why was there no Jordy Nelson "love" during the game? I expected to at least get one thrown at him especially after the Dingo drop.

    A random story that made me laugh during the game:

    As i posted in the Shout-out Box (or whatever it's called), I watched the game at my girlfriend's Aunt and Uncle's house. Her cousin is an Eagles fan (got a decent dig in right away, he was wearing his McNabb jersey.."Oh, I didn't know you rooted for the Redskins!"), and her Uncle is a Vikings fan, so they were both cheering for the Eagles, or against the Packers...

    Her Aunt doesn't follow football, and was making food for us throughout most of the game, but when she came down one time to check in on the game early in the second half (when Philly was making it close), she started up with some "Go Eagles! Who's their new quarterback again?" *told Mike Vick* "Ah, GO VICK!"

    So I quip up with "You do know that he's the guy who killed all those dogs, right..."

    "THAT WAS HIM!?!? OH I HATE HIM! What a bad man."

    and that was the last time she said anything nice about the Eagles....

    Funny how the talking heads are saying GB is so dangerous now that we've found a running game. Well, more like a running back who looks for holes instead of running up the butt of the O-lineman in front of him.

    :) As many you know, I come from a family of Eagles fans (yeah I know, I'm the only one with sense!) and all last week and during the game I had random family members calling me up to talk smack. Mainly bashing the Packers and saying how Vick is going to run all over us and how Aaron is no Favre. I countered them on every argument, nobody messes with my Packers. I kept singing to them my little chant, "Vick, Vick, you make me sick! I hope you throw a pick!" Catchy little tune if I do say so! ;) As you can imagine with that last play of the game, those phone calls ceased and desisted. So yeah, thanks, Vick for making my song a hit!!!
