The anounces might have been wrong but I heard it was the first time favre has been shut out. I never thought I'd say this but I ALMOST feel sorry for packer fans. It's going to be a long year for them. Oh well should be 2 more wins for the queens.

I've always disliked the Packers as well and this will sound just as bad... I do feel bad for them, this has to be up there with all of the bad teams they fielded throughout the 70's and 80's. Tell me they couldn't use Sharper in that secondary... tongue.gif

Yeah, its not even hard or fun to tease the cheeseheads. Its gonna be another year of:

"Yeah, well how many rings do the Vikes have."

or

"Well, if the Vikes don't win the Superbowl, whats the difference?"

I also feel bad for them cheeseheads, they will have to resort to the same old lame comebacks they always use.

Couldn't have said it better mysef! It would just be nice to hear them say how bad they are again and admit it will be like the twenty plus years during the 70's, 80's and early nineties when they were the bottom feeders.

Thanks for all the sympathy guys. By the way you will not get a Super Bowl Trump card played by me. Got a chance to watch the game off and on a bit, and finally ended up turnin it off to get other stuff done after the 1st interception. Overall they just looked poor everywhere; running game, passing game, defense, special teams, they all just sucked. They were lucky to only lose 26-0. Looked through the play-by-play on NFL.com this morning and don't understand why after the second or even first Favre interception Rogers wasn't into the game. Did they just not want to expose him to the Bears, cause these are the perfect opportunities for them to use to get him into the game.

Hey Buzz,

what you sayin' 'bout 20yrs +? I'm new to this Pack/Vikes rivalry being from Chi-town and all, but here all I gotta do is say GB 3 rings vs CB's 1 ring. Is that what you mean?

But I will step up with Andy on this....GB will be bad all yr. Now, was Gato a flash in the pan or what?

DTE,

I watched it all and it was brutal. No coverage, no rush, no running game, one of the most prolific passers of all time and hardly any passes --- P..THETIC!

From the 2nd Bear drive when the Pack int in the end zone I thought they might do something, but when they lost a few inches when it was 4th and inches, I threw in the towel for hopes of any upset.

I don't think they are gonna bench Favre at home unless they can play the injury card.

Ummm, Geno/grasshopper, you must read the entire sentence... it was during a time period that I mentioned, the Packers fans have blocked this from their memory and I'm hear to remind them that they are back in those days.... get it my Cubbie lovin' friend?

Geno,

I don't have the 70's down due to age, but I think what Buzz is referring to are the days when the Packers had quarterbacks by the names of Lynn Dicky, David Whitehurst, Randy Wright, Rich Campbell and coaches like Starr, Gregg and Infante. Pretty much the whole Pre-Ron Wolf era.

So nobody had mentioned what I noticed while watching the end of the Bears/Packers blowout.... Brett favre left the field before the game was over - down the tunnel and didn't shake anybodys hands!! here's an article I read on ESPN that talks about the lil lady and the double standards.

Reader Kyle Kirchhevel of Jacksonville adds, "Brett Favre walked off Lambeau Field and up the tunnel before the game was over because his poor little ego couldn't handle shaking hands with the Bears who shut him out. When Randy Moss walked off a moment early in 2004 at Washington, he got incinerated by the sports press. Why is it OK for Favre to do what was wrong for Moss to do?" I did not see the ending of Packers-Bears -- it's hard to believe anyone but immediate family members was watching -- but if Favre did indeed walk off early to avoid shaking hands, he deserves a round of criticism. Favre is a first-ballot Hall of Famer, but he has been flattered too much by the sports media. Hard as it might seem for him to believe, the Packers' season is not about him personally.

Wonder what the cheeseheads have to say about their hero/god now? I'm certain there are some great excuses, lets hear them.

Of course he can leave early, he's Brett Favre. Brett Favre can do what ever he likes because he's Brett Favre and he's good and he's been with the pack forever and his wife had cancer and he gave money to katrina victims and most important, he's Brett Favre.

He has to go to the locker room early so he can get John Maddens head outta his butt before the rest of the fellers arrive.

Oh and a few more recent classic Favre quotes:

Maybe we just ain't very good," Favre said on Sunday night. "I don't know."

Favre, who spent months deliberating his football future before deciding to return to the Packers, isn't publicly questioning that decision.

But after being shut out for the first time in his 16-year NFL career, he knows a quick turnaround might not be possible.

"We've got a lot of football left that could be good or bad," Favre said. "So depending on how we play or how we handle it, I hope we win some ballgames here. I really do. Because it will be a long season. But if not, at least make it fun. Compete at a high level -- make some plays, go down swinging. Because it will be a long year if we don't."

That's a stark contrast to the things Favre said early in training camp, when he asserted that this was the most talented team he had ever played on -- even more talented than the team that won the 1997 Super Bowl.

"I caught a lot of heat for this earlier in training camp, but if you look at some of those guys, we were not overly talented," Favre said. "Now, I say that, and that was a long time ago, and maybe I have been hit in the head too many times."

Leaving BEFORE the game was over?? That is not good!

But not shaking hands I don't care about too much. I know these days all the kids do it after their baseball games, but even most of them are just going through the motions. It would be hard for me to act all cuddly-duddly after just trying to beat the heck out of the competition. I wouldn't expect it from my opponent especially at the pro-level. No need to be arse'oles, but no need to be kissy-face either. I see them all gather round each other at the end of the game and just know they're all out there making fun of the rest of us that are paying their million dollar salaries. I wonder how much prayin' they'd be doin' if they weren't so rich/overpaid --- no I don't, really.

Gotta keep it going!!!! FROM ESPN:

Brett Favre threw two more interceptions in Green Bay's shutout loss yesterday, giving him 257 for his career -- just 20 shy of George Blanda's all-time record. Will ESPN start running a Bonds-esque "Chasing Blanda" scroll at the bottom of the screen as Favre goes after -- and inevitably passes -- this historic mark? I have no idea, although they should. But I'd like to throw a bone to all of the Favre apologists out there. In order to prevent their hero from breaking Blanda's mark, I say Favre's picks no longer be recorded as interceptions. Instead, they shall be called "gunslings." It's simply disrespectful to say: "Brett Favre stinks. He threw five more interceptions last night." To me, this sounds much better: "Did you see Brett Favre throw five gunslings last night? Man, what a gunslinger. He threw them so hard directly into the defenders' hands that he made them bleed. No one throws gunslings like Brett Favre."

We actually have a tracker up at work with a countdown to Favre breaking the INT record. I'm getting nervous though that he might hang it up before it happens.

After watching the Raiders last night I think Pack/Raiders might be a decent game...

Not a good one, but it would just be another record held by a Packer Hall of Famer.

Let me see if I can Windyspin this one: most Int's means he must have played an awful lot of games. Oh yeah, that goes along with Most Consec Starts...., more MVP's than any VikesQB....nyuk nyuk

Yeah Buzz, so long as Madden isn't Editor in Chief, there'll be lots more written about him in his final hurrah.

(Kick 'em when they're down!!)

It's gonna be a long Packer season, so, I guess that means I'll turn into a Vikes rooter now, MAYBE.

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

    • Wanderer
      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.
