Packers 27, Seahawks 17

Aaron Rodgers is shouldering the load so far (I make a funny?). In a must-win game for the Packers, Rodgers played through some visible pain to lead us to 3 TDs and solid victory. This comes after not practicing for the second week in a row.

I am a little concerned that he was the only man wearing long sleeves on the field. I hope it was to keep his arm warm rather than him getting cold easily. That'd be like getting your wounds sewn up on the battlefield but asking for a Zima and a Jolly Rancher instead of whiskey.

I am still miffed McCarthy passed on the 63-yard FG attempt in the 2nd quarter in favor of a punt from Derrick Frosty Tips. Have you forgotten who kicks FGs for you? He is Braveleg!

Was it me or does Holmgren look like an angry, old, pasty, Northwest bear? Even more than normal. He needs a nap. I think it's safe to say he's done after this year (in Seattle anyway).

So that’s where Mike Wahle is now. I miss that guy – not sure why we couldn’t have landed him again in the offseason. I'm sure TT has his reasons as usual.

Next week we face the Colts at home. Prancing Peyton Manning and his white knights are coming off a blowout against Baltimore, so their confidence will likely outweigh their performance. It might be the most important game of the season thus far, and that's not just because Franklin and I will be sitting front row (you heard correct).


  1. Front row! Front row!

    I hope you don't pass out and smash your teeth on the yellow railing.

  2. I will be sure to keep a close eye on the television screen for you two. Maybe you should wear some sort of clothing that will stick out of the crowd ... like blaze orange or something ... wait never mind.

    Seriously though, don't bloggers get press credentials now? You guys better be in the locker room or at least ranting at the post-game news conference.

  3. Those press passes should be coming any day now. If not, I'm sure we'll be recognized immediately and taken to box seats (which we will refuse on the grounds of those being too elitist). Plus, our "Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood" sign has a better chance of getting shown in the crowd.

  4. I would just like to clarify that we prefer the term Ranters.
