Nov 20, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: BleacherReport

Since the replacement referee debacle on Monday Night Football in Seattle in Week 5 dropped their record to 2-3, the Packers have reeled off five consecutive wins.

Am I to trust your predictions? Okay. Convince me. All you have to do is tell me that you predicted that the Packers would win 15 games last season and that the Vikings would finish in last place. I bet your predictions were wrong last year also. Look at the bright side. You are consistent. Consistently wrong!

Are you positive? As positive as you were last season that the Vikings would lose both games to the Packers? Or as positive as you were the year before? ROFLMAO! I want to thank you for getting your hopes up! I love it.
Vikings were a bad team last year. Not so this year.

The first sentence is a proven FACT! It certainly isn't a prediction. Since you didn't claim you made the correct prediction last year, I KNOW for a fact that you are always wrong. I'll take that into consideration about your prediction this year. A person that is consistently wrong is as reliable as a person that is consitently right. You and I are merely opposite ends of the spectrum. I'm always right and you are always wrong. Thanks for confirming and reinforcing MY predicton. ROFLMAO!

I think we are still in good shape if we do lose to the giants.The divisional games we have to face still should pan out fine for the pack, the odds are very good.This giant game i wouldnt be losing sleep over if it turns out to be a loss.
The key to this game beating the giants- stopping manning and there passing game.This is where the real test begins with the secondary- can they do the job against the wr's especially Cruz??
The giant running game might make a little yardage but not enough to do damage.
Stop manning the wr's and the CRUZ missle and we have a very good chance of taking this game.

I havent seen the Giants to much this year,but,losing Mario Manningham and Brandon Jacobs prob. doesnt help.I like Victor Cruz,he vs Tramon Williams should be fun to watch! but yea,if we can pressure Manning,,put a lid on Cruz ( to a reasonable amount of catches,yards ect) and not give up big plays like a stupid Hail Mary ( playoffs),we should be in good shape.Its not the end if we lose but,its a nice statement if GB can win this thing and a win is certainly better then a loss.Again,if we lose and Chi beats Minn,we are still up on Minn 1 game behind Chi and a chance to tie them by beating them head to head again ( assuming we beat Det and Minn in the upcoming 2 games after NY),,of course if we lose and Minn beat Chi ( which i thnk Minn will beat Chi) then we have a 3 way tie for 1st,so a GB win and a Minn win puts us 1 game up on both Chi and Minn. but it will all change after this week when the division teams face each other over the next few weeks.Rest Mathews and hope Walden can play yet another solid game and Moses hopefully can be productive in Mathews absence.

Right, putting matthews in when hes not 100 percent isnt a good thing of course plus we need bodies in the upcoming weeks so keeping him out and anyone else who isnt quite ready yet is a better choice. This game isnt critical.
Maybe this game can be the time to try out the 2 TE's scheme that we have been discussing for weeks now???!!Since our running game is going to have a difficult time against there line , this is a good opportunity to "experiment".
The giants can be thrown on mid to deep routes so if all fails rodgers can allways go back to that but i'd like to see if the ol 90's method would work.
Its something teams havent seen from us in awhile.

I like putting the 2 TE offense on film,so it gives our division teams just more to have to plan for AND having not done it,just may surprise NY and set us up for a few points.I didn't like seeing Raji limping off the field but haven't heard much about it since,so obviously,its not a big deal

Wrong AGAIN idiot! The Vikings are 3rd in the division! Is 3rd place in the division good to you? I guess that is good for a VIKING fan. ROFLMAO! Packer fans would be embarrassed by that, but then we aren't losers like you. Either you are satisfied with 3rd place and think that is good or you are making a PREDICTION that the Vikings will do better than 3rd place you imbecile!

BTW don't let people know you voted for Obama. It's embarrassing for the rest of us that someone stupid like you also voted for the winner. Idiots belong in the other camp! However, if you want to join the winners in football also, jump on the Packer bandwagon. We will make room for any and all Viking fans that finally come to their senses and refuse to accept failure for another 50 years.

So you are batting 100%! You have been 100% wrong just as I said. I can't wait for the next post from you that proves me right - AGAIN!

Ill say this,Minnesota is very much improved,Now, are they improved enough to beat GB? That remains to be seen but i dont think the Vikings have the firepower to beat GB yet,unless, Adrian Peterson goes off and GB has done a nice job of keeping AP at a reasonable rate of yards,You will never shut down AP but if you contain him,its a job well done and GB has done that for the most part.As for both of you jokers voting for Obama,well, Thousands of American workers have found their hrs being cut,demoted to PT from FT because of Obama and his shitty policies and when we are at a 18-20T debt and Hundreds of Thousands of Americans or more lose their jobs in the next 2 years,esp when Americans who know how to run an economy are warning of this happening,you can push it off on Bush,this is BO destructive policies doing this,Not Bush,Not Romney,Not conservatives,Not moderates,this is Obama's policies and folks are paying for it with hrs and jobs to cover obamacare and is class warfare of screwing those who produce to cover his ridiculous spending spree

Once again, I'll take your uncanny abilty to be wrong into account when considering your prediction. ROFLMAO!

Congratulations for picking a winner in politics. Why don't you do the same in football? There is no embarrassment with being right about football. Trust me, as a Packer fan, I know!

Any team that only wins 3 games SHOULD be improved. A move from 4th place in the division to 3rd does reflect improvement.

Where were you when the Reagan and Bush Administrations were racking up record deficits year after year? It's the same old song and dance. The GOP doesn't give a care in the world about national debt until thy nearly destroy the country, and then the Dems aren't fixing the mess the GOP created fast enough. After the millions upon millions of jobs lost under the Bush Administration, Obama is a very welcome relief. As long as Obama doesn't cause the greatest financial collapse since the Great Depression, his policies will be a success. Exactly how quickly do you think anybody can fix all the damage done by Bush? In any event, America chose the right person to fix this country. You people should try pushing in the right direction instead of simply acting as angry hecklers from the sideline.

Then get used to the failure, heartbreak and disappointment! The offer stands if you ever grow tired of Viking failure. Nobody will think less of you for coming to your senses. Who in the world would be so cruel as to deny you some football joy? Viking fans have stood by their team for 50 years of failure. It's sadistic to expect them to do the same thing for another 50 years.

OK,lets look at this with Common sense,Please ( you being a progressive im sure) explain to me,how you can build an economy by financially raping small businesses ( which is exactly what you will do when taxes go up for 250K or more) a majority of them are small businesses and job creators.NOW,if you want to tax Millionaires only,thats another story but 250K is stupid.If you use FACTS,you would remember Bush ( with Republicans) had a good economy,it was 07 and 08 when the economy collapsed and not surprising after the dems took both houses.Clinton signing NAFTA killed manufacturing in America,nad his legislation forcing banks to give low income families mortgages killed the housing and bank markets,those are facts.IF you also remember it was Bush who warned that housing market will collapse and Barney Frank ( Dem, Mass) stated the housing market is in good shape and Fannie Mae and Freedie Mac are great Long term investments,so that helped the housing market hah?..ALSO,raping the elderly out of over 700B from Medicaid to pay for Obamacare wont help (esp when you claim republicans will kill Medicaid with vouchers which is a plain flat out lie) AND BO will rape the elderly. with another 350B out of Medicaid if his budget goes through.NO one expected Obama to fix the shitty economy that the Dems had a huge part in creating,but, he has made shit worse.Unemployment,debt,foodst amps,more PT workers who want FT.Anyone can spend Trillions to create jobs,he also created debt that will kill American security,its credit rating and security.Also, NO one who voted for Obama should come close to criticizing any republican about debt,He created more debt then every president from Washington to Clinton combined and he created 2T MORE debt then Bush and he did it in 4 less years

As for the Vikings,they won 3 last year,this year they won 6 and are a threat.They have taken nice strides to improve and should be commended for a job they have done so far! They still arent quite where GB is and may never be,maybe they will pass them,who knows but they are a game behind ( actually 2 if not for the Seattle screw job) but still and if MINN beats Chi ( which i predict will happen) and if GB loses to NY ( which very well may happen) Minn and GB are tied along with Chi AND Minn is at Lambeau next week and Seattle is in Chicago,this could set up more interesting then we thought,interesting indeed.

I appreciate your attitude and loyalty to the Vikes but don't overdo it. The Vikes still have a lot to prove to be put on the Packers' level.

How long has it been since they "stomped the Pack"? What 2009? Nice work, the Vikings had Favre with his ‘best statistical season’ and they still couldn't win the Super Bowl. The next year... well we know what happened then don't we? The next year... Vikings swept and the whole NFC North SWEPT by the PACK!!!!!

However I can admit the Vikes are much better this year than I thought they would be. I predicted 6-10 for the Vikes.

Best wishes for more smack talk here on the Packer forum, there has been an extreme shortage of Viking fans here lately and you are more than welcome to hang out and discuss our teams. We have seen many come and go but not many stick around in the end because of the Packers success.

Happy Turkey Day to you and yours.

Don't tell me about common sense. It's obvious you know NOTHING about common sense when you describe a return to the Clinton years tax rates as "rape"! Or when you describe Obama's Medicaid cost saving messures (also endorsed by Paul Ryan and included in his budget proposal) as rape. Or when you deny that Medicare (not Medicaid) wouldn't be destroyed if repaced by a voucher program. Or act as if the Republican grandstanding on extending the credit limit wasn't the cause of the US having it's credit limit downgraded. And NOBODY could possibly make the economy worse than the financial collaspe that occured under Bush. It's chidish denial to claim that Obama has made things worse than the second worst financial collapse in US history. If you had the ability to think about this without irrational and blind hatred clouding your judgment we could have an adult conversation. Let me know when you grow up. We'll talk about it then.
