I don't know what Rodgers was smoking when we were 4-6 and said we'd run the table but I want some lol.

He knew he still had that ability where he could do multiple spinaroonis in the same play and then fit it in a sliver opening at the end. He just needed to extract it again.

Another great performance, or at least 2nd half by Rodgers.

Man, that should have been in the bag at the end. The principle of the thing is bothersome, letting them hang around for a potential miracle win, and then Spriggs gets injured to boot. Don't know why the heck McCarthy didn't just kneel it down. By stepping back a few yards each time Rodgers could have run out the clock. Then that Schum punt I was like WTF just happened. In the end we won, and that's the big picture, but it didn't need to be anything other than smooth.

Well, even if we don't get to the Bowl this year, satisfying conclusion to the season and a chance to exorcise a lot of demons next Sunday. Random thoughts...

--Actually wasn't terrible with the Hail Mary at the end, since I had the over plus the Pack -3.5....ca-ching

--When we drafted Adams and R Rodgers, we were terrible in the red zone. That's one reason we went for those guys. Good to see that finally paying off a little. Even RRodgers with Cook spread out had a nice key catch as we got close--he can be huge as a sneaky option. (just not as a #1 TE, obviously)

--Of all Hyde's faults, thank God we have him this year.

--We probably just don't have the secondary to get it done this year, but the league is not strong. Have a chance this year, and we really, really, really need to add some affordable vets on one-years next year while A-Rod is still mobile. Nobody league wide looks all that good the next few years.

Oh, forgot to mention only we could possibly get Spriggs injured there. Only us.

Cold game will help slow down OBJ and Sharpe, but it could get brutal if Rollins, Randall, & Dorleant are out. Rely on Hawkins who hasn't been active the last 4 weeks along with a street FA.

Rodgers played poorly in the first meeting but we did well against OBJ and pulled it out. I think we beat them again

If anyone besides Rodgers gets the MVP then the award has become meaningless.

Almost every team we play, you could say something we should be afraid of.

Playing IN Seattle
OBJ vs. our secondary
Dallas O Line
Atlanta's Offense

That's just the way it is. And I bet all of those teams' fans would also say "****, we have to play Rodgers."

Bulaga didn't finish the game and MM got Spriggs hurt. Tretter possibly not ready, so Barclay could start at RT vs NYG......

If the Packers win next week he'll get it. I'm fully aware it's a regular season award. Voters apparently are not.

I dunno. I still would give it to Carr. Rodgers made as good of a case though with these last 6 weeks as he could've.

Have a strange feeling it's going to be Brady or Ryan

Hopefully Capers can coach guys up for a big playoff game like he did vs AZ last year and SEA the year before.

I think both he and MM held some stuff back today. Hopefully we can pull some surprises out for the playoffs.
I thought the Bucks should have drafted Denzel Valentine in the 10th spot.

It's voted for before then though I believe
