Yes sir I do. I usually prefer to just read what others write and keep to myself, but it is just so damn slow at work that I have and will be continuing to post more often.

Everyone on the ESPN crew - Ditka, Johnson, Carter, Mort, and Jackson - picked Green Bay.

Okay, NOW it's getting scary. I'm still on the fence, myself. It just seems like such a toss-up.

WTF... why are these assclowns picking our Packers? We weren't good enough for them when Favre was traded. Why are we suddenly their freaking darlings!!!

I want a recount! :)

What do you think?


I think Florio would do fine on his own without his little sidekick.

All is not lost. I just found a writer who picked the Cowboys: Adam Duerson of Sports Illustrated:

http://sportsillustrated...week3/index.html?eref=T1

His pick is Cowboys 45 Packers 30. He does make a statement that I found to be pretty weird, though:

"Statistically, Rodgers has outperformed Favre in '08. Dominated, really, if you've watched all four of their combined games. I'll let the stats speak: In two games, Rodgers has four scores, zero interceptions, a 117.8 passer rating and he's only been sacked once. Compare that against Favre's three, one, 104.1 and five. Close enough, I guess, but is there honestly a Packers fan out there who would switch back?"

ANSWER: Um, yes. There are still quite a lot of them, actually. And Rodgers has not "dominated" Favre statistically. I'm a big Rodgers fan, but why exaggerate?

to get people all riled up over your words, cause a national uproar, have people fighting over what you said, and then they remember your name.

many reasons to exaggerate as a sports writer, very few reasons not to exaggerate. case in point; tony kornheiser. example, "Greg Jennings has about a million yards after the catch tonight."

Kornheiser had a couple others during that first Monday night game: He said that Adrian Peterson gained "a million yards" last season and that there are "about 5,000 pounds of Williams" in the middle of the Vikings D-line.

The problem is why the hell would ANYONE trade a 38 year old aging QB for a 24 year old up and comer. It may help a bit for now but that would be a rather bone headed move for the future of a franchise. Why can't people get this through your head. You don't build teams around 38 year old QB's. We built around Favre in 1993 just like any organization SHOULD.

And I loved some comments "Well we wont know how this decision looks until 4 years" How the hell is that??? Favre wont even be playing by then and THAT is the point.

Off Topic but the 95 championship game against the cowboys is on right now and Hochuli is the ref. Looks like the before and after steroids pictures you see of Barry Bonds!

Back to Florio.


1) The pick was not that enthusiastic. Watch the final bit of video.

2) There was hesitation when making the decision and a reluctant uttering of "Packers".

This is a huge game. It means a lot in many Tie Breakers. Conference games, common games, Strength of Victory, Strength of Schedule.

Right now if you go through the tie breakers the Packers are $2 in the Conference and the Cowboys are a wild card team behind the Giants.


Weird Theory:
A lot of New York media types want the Packers to beat the Giants' big rival.

I was at that game........sure was a LONG plane ride home.
I hope we can hand the smug Cows a loss tomorrow.

CaliforniaCheez - good effort :)

I don't care for Florio too much. I like his opinions because they are usually different and unread previously. I've always liked differencing opinions.

uffda udfa (8h) : The Flynn Patriots game has been used to say that he is. Seneca and Scott showed otherwise.
uffda udfa (8h) : Hundley is going to settle the debate once and for all in whether Mike McCarthy is a great coach, or not.
uffda udfa (8h) : Doesn't speak well to the talent acquired by the org, does it? Easy to say talent is great until Rodgers is gone and you have to see it wit
Porforis (8h) : Could Sam Bradford come into the Packers and post a winning record from here on out? Are there any non-starters in the NFL that could?
Zero2Cool (9h) : Teddy is replaceable. Aaron is not. Vikings have a really good defense. We do not. Understand??
Zero2Cool (9h) : You are wise enough to know the difference. Right?
uffda udfa (10h) : Here's one for you, Z. Vikes lose Teddy B. and go out and aggressively get Bradford. Packers lose 12 and go out and get a UDFA.

Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : I said that too. Why don't you quote me?? I'm famous!
uffda udfa (16-Oct) : @ProFootballDoc says Rodgers could return Week 14 at earliest, and surgery speeds up return timeline.
Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : McCarthy dropped a "bullshit" on packers.com stream. No delay apparently lol
Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : @AaronNagler One thing is crystal clear: McCarthy is pissed at the way his team played yesterday.
Smokey (16-Oct) : 2017 Packers are done , time to focus on the 2018 NFL Draft .
