    Xactly does anyone think McCown would have looked as good as he did with Matthews attacking the edges? Besides in a couple of weeks Perry should be back as well and we'll have our full compliment of pass rushers again.

    So true. It costs nothing. Kind of like "Pascal's Wager", even if it is intellectually dishonest.

    How very strange, I had started wearing a 2010 SB shirt when the winning streak started. I didn't wear it for Monday Night because I was just getting home from work. It's on me and my shirt folks.

    Well said weeds. I'm happy for the young folk who have never witnessed losing season after losing season. Truth be told though, it wasn't that bad. We took our joy from Chuck Cecil hits and beating the Bears.
    Win or lose you took joy in converting a 3rd and short and any turnover. You could get tickets to games at relatively modest prices and always were able to see them play at County Stadium.
    I'm sad for them because I remember how deflating it was when the Packers... one time world champs, became mediocre. They'll have that wisdom coming to them at some point.
    Still - you loved 'em and watched for the memories of individual performances and team gains. It never occurred to me to be a fan of another team and bandwagon it. You just knew in time the Packers would be proud and champions again. I'm going to enjoy the rest of the season for what it has the potential to become.

    Chances on Winning with Rodgers?? 100%..with him at qb we are never out of a game. That's all i'm going to say. You "optimistic' folks better pray that the defense has the performance of their lives and Lacey and Starks go off for 100 yds each.. Oh and that Crosby is on his A+ game cus i expect at least 4 FG's from him...he has become relevant once again.

    100%??

    Ro, 9'ers....Bengals ..... look, I recognize that you cannot replace Aaron Rodgers. From my vantage point, we're going to need at least a couple of pretty ugly wins -- and, before Detroit, I think -- over the next 4-6 weeks, whatever it turns out to be. It's not a matter of being optimistic or not, it's a matter of recognizing that over the next 4-6, style points don't count...so, optimistic?, no ... realistic?... yeah, I guess so.

    Oh, man. I had no idea that you weren't going to wear your lucky shirt last week. I mean, between my and your coincident screw-ups, the Packers had NO CHANCE.

    Let's coordinate better in the future, ok?

    Don't worry guys. I have a blanket that I only wash after losses. It's being washed tonight. I've been doing it since we won the SB and if memory serves me correctly, we haven't lost 2 games in a row since. Trust in the blanket.

    I moon walked under a ladder with my Justin Harrell jersey on.... I also spit on a black cat - broke a mirror - stole rocks from Hawaii while making disparaging remarks about their volcano gods - drew pentagrams on the elderly - etc.

    I should've just ate chicken wings and sat down - it's my fault Rodgers got hurt.

    I have a Teddy bear that I push pins into. I've run out of space for more pins.

    I need a new lucky tradition. Advice? Ideas?
    I've considered shaving one of the dogs but they are Paris Hilton dogs and I'm afraid a hawk might snatch them in the backyard thinking they are rats.
    Garment, food, drink, breaking things, swearing are all good options. I have never broke from tradition by going outside while special teams are on the field. I can't bear to watch. Who was it that used to have the "FIRE SLOCUM" deal? Even when they're good I can't watch. It's like a flinch.

    Yeah, I am running out of shirts. They ALL seem unlucky this year. Maybe I should just paint a giant "G" on my belly...

    OMG!!!!
    It's all my fault because I showered and changed clothes sometime after they won.
    Those lucky clothes and lucky dirt ended up getting cleaned and washed away.
    OK that's it.
    Next time Packers win, whenever that will be, I won't change my underwear, socks, or any clothes or shower until the end of the season which hopefully won't be until the final tick of the Super Bowl clock.
    Oh, it may get bad and stink to high heaven but at least I will have the nickname of "Lucky."

    You do know who he is referring to, don't you?
    It can still be funny to you.
    Just want to be sure that you are getting the joke.

    Yes I know. Bus comes out with some good ones. Doesn't bother me who he is poking fun at.
