2017 Week 17

Packers 00 Viqueens 16

My preview article last week was a rant.  I’ll admit it and own it.  Granted, ranting is what Jimmy’s supposed to do in “Just Sayin’” and I get the chance to rant during the bye week and the End of Season issue, but I couldn’t help myself last week.  The writing was on the wall.  I saw it.  Now you may say, “Yeah, Ken but you didn’t call for McCarthy’s job.  Why?” 

2017 Week 16

Packers 24 Panthers 31

I said before the trip to Charlotte that regardless of the outcome of the game, or even the season, Mark Murphy should fire the entire “lot” of them. I’m still saying it, only a little bit louder. Actually, I’m like a 250-lb male brown-haired brown-eyed dark-skinned Heidi yodeling it from the Blue Ridge mountaintops…

2017 Week 15

Packers 27 Browns 21

You know John (our erstwhile editor) and I were talking before the game about Trevor Davis.  He’s our return guy, a tight end/wide receiver who has hands like baskets so he can catch nearly anything thrown his way.  Anyone who watches special teams play knows how special that is.  Remember when Jeremy Ross played kick returner? 

2017 Week 14

Packers 26 Buc-an-ears 20

Well I did say this was a winnable game without Air-ron, I just didn’t think it would be in overtime.  One would have to go way back to find a game where the QB on the winning side had 13 completions for 84 yards with a QBR of 48.3.

2017 Week 13

Packers 28 Stealers 31

The game at Pittsburgh Sunday night proves two things with absolute clarity: (1) The NFL is truly unpredictable week to week; and (2) I personally don’t know what the hell I’m talking about. I was wrong (“Wrong? Have you ever been right?”) about how this game would go. I did everything short of predicting a loss, which I don’t think I’ll ever be capable of doing…

2017 Week 12

Packers 00 Ravens 23

I trust everyone had a good Thanksgiving; ours was quite one with only our youngest and his girl friend making the drive up the mountain for a turkey dinner.  Good news is we were able to sit on our deck, yea!

2017 Week 11

Packers 23 duh Bears 16

What a difference a win makes! It’s been doom and gloom for weeks, and that very well may continue, at least for a while. But beating Shitcago to hiccup this slide was a great feeling. Like a drowning man thrown a life preserver, just a bit out of reach. But it seems at least we have a shot to swim toward it and maybe even grab it!

2017 Week 10

Packers 17 Lyins 30

Okaaaayyyy.  That wasn’t fun!  First off, I want to apologize.  I didn’t see the game.  I only got to listen to it during the 4th quarter and by that time the damage was done.  This game wasn’t even close.  This is going to be a long (hopefully not) rant about the state of this team.  Packers lost 30 to 17 to the lackluster Lions.  ‘Nuff said about the score.

2017 Week 09

Packers 17 Aints 26

Last Sunday, prior to the game, they were asking the Fox guys for predictions.  Jimmy Johnson said, “I expect a valiant effort but Brett Hundley and the Packers will fall short and lose to the Saints.”  A rumble went through the crowd at Chiefs. It looked like that wasn’t going to happen.  Green Bay gets the ball first and we pound right down the field.  Touchdown Packers!

2017 Week 08 (Special Edition)


You wouldn’t know it, but when it comes to the Packers, I’m a pretty superstitious guy.  Now you may be saying, “Yeah, Ken but everybody is a little superstitious.”  True but look at what I do. 
I inspect Nuclear Power Plants. 

2017 Week 07

Packers 10 Viqueens 23

The Packers are again limping as usual…is it the bratwurst and cheese?”-Radio and TV personality Colin Cowherd (“The Herd”)
“When was the last time Green Bay lined up in a classic I-formation with double Tight Ends tight to the offensive line?”-Minnesota announcer during Hundley’s first series
The Pack lost at Minnesota to fall to (4-2), but (Obvious Alert) it goes without saying that we lost much, much more than this game.

2017 Week 06

Packers 35 Dallass 31

Last week I made that bold prediction we would win 30-20 and for most of the game, first half at least, there wasn’t a lot to cheer about.  The first Green Bay TD and missed extra point, we didn’t see at Chief’s because the storm temporarily knocked out the TV’s. 

2017 Week 05

Packers 35 Duh Bears 14

The Green Bay Packers coaching staff has a plan.  I know sometimes it doesn’t seem that way, but they do have a plan.  It’s simple:  The first offensive series has to result in a touchdown and it must be a resounding success. 

2017 Week 04

Packers 27 Bungles 24

At the end of the game at Chief’s I said there was no such thing as an ugly win, but I may have been mistaken (I don’t know how to spell wrrong).  The Packer win was certainly not pretty, but the failcons win I got to say was ugly.  Not that I wanted the Lyins to win mind you, I just like to see the failcons win less. 

2017 Week 03

Packers 23 Failcons 34

“This just in:” The Packers got their asses kicked in Atlanta. Smacked up. What a difference a week makes, but honestly, not a huge surprise, given the loss of both starting offensive tackles, our most disruptive defensive lineman, our (arguably) two best receivers, etc etc etc.

2017 Week 02

Packers 17 Seahack's 9

If you watched NFL Pregame on Fox, all of the talking heads had Seattle beating Green Bay in an “upset”.  Well, it’s nice to be thought of as the favorite when one of the taglines of the sport is, “Any Given Sunday”. 

2017 Week 01

Chapter 98 ~ It was quite the offseason.  Biggest change for us has to be the loss of Jay Cutler, who was let go by duh bears, went into retirement, signed as a TV broadcaster, pulled a Favre and came out of retirement and is now a Miami Dolphin. Someone told me the Packers should give the Dolphins a 1st round pick if they trade Jay back to duh bears.  As much as I would like to see it, I don’t think it’s really necessary. First play of duh bears preseason, Mike Glennon threw a pick six… proving that with or without Jay, duh bears still suck.
Another oddity this year is Ted’s new found love of free agency. Added was not one (Martellus Bennett), not two (Lance Kendrick), not three (Davon House ~ again) free agents, but just this week, a fourth (Ahmad Brooks. Will this be the missing piece that gets the Pack back to the big dance?  We will just have to wait and see.
One big surprise was letting go Eddie Lacy, no more “Roll Tide” from Ken Hill.  He may be gone but he hasn’t left quite yet. Listed as their #2 back, we will get one more look at Eddie this week when we face the seahacks.

2016 Week 21 - YEE

Packers 21 Phal-cons 44

By now, we all know about the game and don’t want to relive bad memories, so I want to take the time right up front to say thanks to the people who helped make the Greenville Packer Backers THE best club outside of Lambeau Field. First is

2016 Week 20

Packers 34 Dalass 31

Cue the Music! (Go On YouTube and start The Empire Strikes Back opening theme) A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away...called Corpus Christi, TX. It is a dark time for our hero. He is beset on all sides as the evil forces of the Death Star (which looks an awful lot like a Dallass Star) stalk him, it is May, 1996, and our quarterback is in rehab!
