He certainly is "Jammin" in that direction Zombie.. hope his arm is okay.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

I hope so. I hope he gets 10 INTs and returns 9 of them to the House. His 1st one however, TAKE A KNEE!

Pack93Z I like your sig. I was at Pearl a couple of years ago and went to the USS AZ and USS MO. What a thrilling day for me.
I did not see the USS OK plaque. Is that something new?

Yep.. within the past few years.

wpr.. you might like this thread.. http://www.packershome.c...wtopic&p=13875#13875

I coped that line from today's article.. thought it was fitting in so many ways.


On topic.. seal the deal with a knee young man, but I understand the excitement it must have been.

Please don't misunderstand Zombie..........i stand by Bigby 100% too! ALL i mean is, do the smart thing in that situation. If you have a 100% chance of winning by just getting down on the ground, you do that. And think of this.........had he scored, you do 2 things. You run up the score on your most hated rival, which you have to play again this year, giving them more drive to beat you next time. Second, you now have to kick off to them. What if they take it to the house on the kickoff? They now have almost a minute left on the clock to try an onside kick, which if they recover they can now beat you. Yes, it would be a long shot, but why give away a 100% for certain win, for a 99% for certain win?
You can BET Bigby got an earful from the coach after the game.

Ok. We run up the score and they get all butt hurt. Am I shaking in my boots when we have a rematch? Hell no. Bring it. :ramboface:

Point 2 - We score again and we have to kickoff. Fine. We now have a 12 point lead instead of a 5 point lead. Do you know how many onside kicks were successful against us last year? Zero. And it will be zero this year as well. Look who we have in there - I seem to remember Donald Driver in there. He'd bitch slap the entire Vikings team then take the ball in his left hand, bitch slap them again, and take a knee. I'm not worried.

My whole point is this game was played too conservatively. Way too conservatively. We won by only five points. I don't like it one bit. If the rematch is this close, I'm going to be pissed.

Why do Packer fans have such low expectations for this team?

Point 3 - This is Atari Bigby we're talking about, not A**** C******. Spider Monkeys do not fumble the football when the game is on the line. Atari Bigby is clutch. He's a guy I'd want in my anti-zombie compound.

Have some faith in this '08 team. This is football, a game where aggression is a good thing. This isn't soccer, folks. Put 'em away and make 'em regret getting on the field with us. I want to see Childress getting anti-depression medication after playing us. My Lord. Y'all are too friendly and seem like you'd rather hug than demolish the Vikings.

Take "Stupid" out, and put "Zombie" in. I think you should go for it, nail in the coffin. Bigby won't fail like that, because as Zombie said, he's clutch.

Edit: Not that I don't like going down when my girlfriend tells me to.
This is a placeholder

Zombie Zombie Zombie......what am i gonna DO with you???
Like i said.....i KNOW the chances of losing in that situation are SLIM. But SLIM to me is too much if A CERTAIN WIN is the other option. Fall down, we win no matter what. Don't fall down, you MIGHT score (which he didn't) AND you take the chance of a fumble, allowing the other team to have a chance they wouldn't have to beat you.
I'm all for putting the hurt on the other team. If there had been 3 minutes left in the game, you try to take it to the house. With ONE minute left, and the other team out of timeouts, you fall to the ground and start the celebration.
There's "conservative play calling", and theres SMART football. Falling down in that situation is smart football, not being conservative. It's sealing the victory.
JMO of course.

Having played on D for a few years at University, and intercepting a few Picks, I understand the whole legs not wanting to stop.

The adrenalin really does get pumping as you see the ball come towards your hands, and then you feet just wanna run like you havent run before... going straight down, even in the 4th period had never entered my head, your feet and heart say to run that back allll the way!
