    I agree completely mrpackerguy.

    Since Mr Rodgers has been out, the Pack has been outmatched in all phases of it's game.

    I can see Seattle in the Superbowl again and this time winning it, the way they are playing now.

    Why, thank you LAG! I really hope you're right.

    I rather like the Packers and it's tough seeing them fall down so hard without Rodgers. I have heaps of respect for that guy and wish him a speedy recovery.

    ^ What a game last night!!!

    One of the announcers mentioned that the Saints weren't used to rain with 30 degree temps. I wonder how much that played into their loss.

    Plus that stadium is so loud. Fans screaming all the time. Must be a bunch of hoarse throated fans in Seattle today.

    The last game I attended, I could barely talk for three days. You really have to wear hearing protection at the games.

    I have a sore throat today after watching it on TV last night!

    On the fumble, there was 1.0 magnitude earthquake from the stadium.

    Seahwak fans get loud in the new stadium, but in my opinion, it does not compare to how loud it was in the Kingdome in the late 80's. After leaving some of those games, it wasn't so much my voice I was worried about as much as the ringing in my ears.

    Hi,

    I've been a Saints fan since their very first game in 1967.

    The Saints seldom play well in the cold. It's the curse of being a domed team in the south. Plus the Seahawks did most everything right. It was a convincing win. I'm hoping the Saints will bounce back and beat the Panthers a couple of times and win their division handily. Still, they will have to go through Seattle to get into the Superbowl because the only team I see with a chance to beat the Seahawks in the next few weeks is the 49ers. So the 'hawks are sure to have home field advantage through the playoffs. If the Saints have to go there all I can do is hope for the best.


    Thank you for your indulgence,

    BassCliff

    Yes, the Pack has dropped hard but I think they will recover and be back in the thick next season. Wouldn't mind seeing a replacement DC in the off season.

    I like Russell Wilson at QB. Very talented. I watched him play at Wisconsin and am pleasantly surprised at the level he has taken his game in Seattle. I was pulling for the Seahawks in SB XL a few years back with Coach Holmgren. Maybe this is their year to win the Lombardi. Could happen.

    I'm leaning that way too on DC. I think Capers has lost the confidence of his players.

    I vividly remember seeing the Jon Gruden QB "boot camp" interview with RW, pre-draft. All I could think at the time was "wow, too bad he's a little too short." Nothing Gruden asked threw him a bit, he was perfectly prepared. The way he played in the Rose Bowl against Oregon was pretty impressive too. Might be a year or two too early for the SB win, but maybe not.

    I see no reason why not. Russell is playing at a high enough level now to get it done. He doesn't make mistakes like a lot of newer QB's.

    So the Texans fired Kubiak. Rough year for that organization.

    Packers DC - Dom Capers may be available to coach the Texans after the reg season ends. :bag:

    I am totally surprised at how poorly the Texans are doing this season.

    Packers won a game with Matt Flynn at QB. Yes it was against the Falcons at Lambeau, but it is a W and we'll take it.

    Aaaand in a move that will surprise absolutely no one, the Patriots get a lucky break on an onside kick and an obligatory pass interference call in the end zone at the end of the game to pull out the win after playing like crap for most of the game. Gosh, what a new story.
