Packers 2014

Recommended Posts

picksbigwagon

My observation from last nights game is that james Starks might be looking for a job tomorrow afternoon. DuJuan Harris and this Hill kid (#22) were getting to the holes and thorugh them where Starks seemed to be at leadt a half step slower to the holes if he took the hole........

Tolzein looked good too.

Now we got to the game and got in early since it was my son's first Lambeau trip. The Kansas City kickers and ounter were out warming up and continued to warm up till the end of the third quarter, constantly kicking into the net, working on steps to the ball, etc. their punter stunk, the kickers were "eh" but they were kicking for atleadt 3 hours last night.

I'm not worried about Starks. He was probably looking to avoid injury more than anything. The guy runs hard in regular games. He delivers a blow and is an great asset when healthy. I'm looking forward to seeing him with a second healthy season in a row

Packer fans don't need to worry about anything other than keeping Rodgers upright and on the field...if he is, he's capable of beating anybody...anywhere...anytime.

Green and Gold are SB contenders as long as Rodgers is on the field....

We will see how they look tonight. Even though they gave up 8 or 9 sacks against the Seahawks during the 2012 Fail Mary game, the O-line is much improved since then and we added a running game. What I liked about the Fail Mary game is that Seattle's aggressive style prompted Green Bay to play as hard as I've seen them play in years. I hope to see that matched effort again tonight.

Seattle is 15 and 1 in the last two regular seasons at home.

Green Bay has zero chance of winning tonight.

Century Link Field is a brutally loud stadium.

Rodgers has shown a propensity to devolve into a mediocre quarterback when confronted with a hostile crowd and deafening noise.

All the talk about the Hail Mary game in 2012 cracks me up.

Nothing like Packer Fans living in the past.

Well let's live in the now. The Packers are in sole possession of the worst record in the NFL.

The combination of Peppers and Matthews looks like it will help your pass rush but the back end don't look as good as they have been for some time.

The offensive line looks like they need a lot of work. Still a good team and I am not going to bash them on one game. As much as I would Luke to..

Hahahaha, just think how good the Packers could be on offense if they learned how to build an O-line.

Lynch turned their run D into swiss cheese. Did they think they were playing flag football?

That was a pretty tough place to open the season. No one wins in Seattle so no surprise what happened. I thought the packers would be a bit more competitive then that though.

Packers D is a little better then i thought. Sam Shields is really under rated. Clay Mathews was extra roided up. But they cannot stop the run in the least and thats been true for a while... Its a good thing Rodgers gets the lead in a lot of games and forces other teams to play catch-up because the packer run D is horrid. Yes, Seattles offense is one of the best rushing O's in the NFL, but Lynch and Harvin both averaged like 10 yds a carry

Also the packer O line did not look very good at all and that might be a problem going forward.

Having said that id still pick the pack to win the division until someone else actually does

Show me where I stated I am a Vikings fan?

I will save you some time......I never stated that and I am not a Vikings Fan.

But you played another Packer Fan Classic Card......The Vikings Suck more card.

Typical Packers fans, even when their team gets embarrassed on National Television they still cannot grasp the concept of losing without making excuses.

RRR. Now I see why no one on here cares a lick what you say... Where did I say the Vikings suck more? Where did I say I'm a Packer fan... I merely said there are teams (more than the Packers) with a past worth living in.. If you're not a Viking fan, just interject whatever it is you are... Who really cares? I don't!

If you want an honest assessment of how I thought the Packers looked, simply ask. Surprisingly, all the Packer fans I know said the same thing of the game that I thought. Most I know are fairly critical of them...

Get a life... I think your Mom is calling you at the top of the stairs....

But Have a great weekend!

The Jets have a very stout DL and a pretty good 1-2 punch at RB. It's going to be a game that's promoted as Rodgers vs Geno Smith, but very likely will come down to the game in the trenches. The Packers need to be able to run the ball to help Rodgers get out of his Game 1 funk. They also need to be able to stop the Jets from running, putting the ball in Geno's hands. He is still making mistakes but is getting better.

Both teams played sloppy in their first games. It just so happens that Green Bay did it against the defending SB champs while the Jets did it against the woeful Raiders.

A big game for the Packers. They need to keep pace with the Lions if they want to have a chance at winning the division, which is likely their only chance for making the playoffs.

Luckily the Bears re-signed Cutler in the offseason, so there is a great chance the Packers will win this one with a couple of trademark "same old Jay" interceptions.

They are hitting there stride the D is looking good finally. The 49ers and the Seahawks both of rough schedules both might miss the playoffs which would be awesome for the Pack

Pack have to be the favorite to come out of the NFC right now. Cards are well coached, but I dont think they have the QB to go all the way.

Arizona has the type of defense to go all the way but you're right, not the QB. There is still enough time for Stanton to become Trent Dilfer-enough to be effective.

The switch of Clay Matthews to ILB has helped tremendously, but not just because of what he can do but it keeps Matthews, Julius Peppers, and now Nick Perry all on the field at the same time. Those three are playing great, and so surprisingly is LeTroy Guion. He started off slow, and a freak good game against the Vikings, but has slowly increased his worth. He played a really good game against the Eagles and has already set personal records for tackles in a season and sacks.

The Packers are red hot right now and the Patriots (after the Vikings) will give them a true measure of aptitude.

The Packers are legitimately one of the top teams in the league right now. I'm not blind to the possibility that we may have lost had the game been played in Foxborough, but it wasn't and the game was won. The defense has gotten better and better while the offense has gotten more diverse and more difficult to contain. I'll still plan on one more loss (on the road at the Bills if there is one) but this team could conceivably run the table and have home field advantage through the playoffs.

Fun football to watch

Aaron Rodgers Calls Out ‘one-who-thinks-I-am-silly Trolls’ Who Read Into His Grape Crush Choice

The Pack is locked into the playoffs again. They aren't looking as sharp as mid-season but now is the time to snap back to life. They flexed the Packers-Lions game to 3:25pm which is great. I'm looking forward to playing the Seahawks. I think that we have something to show even in Seattle.

      One day to go and heading to Crane and Sand Point lake. I heard black flies are real bad...any updates on that. We are targeting Pike this year
    • Mr. 5 pounder
      I've been going up to the areas mentioned for 20 plus years now and ended up buying a cabin in the Bovey area. Looking to hear and share some fishing reports about the surrounding lakes. Never keep much besides some pesty northerns and panfish (which are plentiful) for the occasional lunch. So, I highly respect the area, but if you know the area at all, you will never be able to fish all its lakes in a lifetime... so some well informed fishing reports is always welcome. Again, I emphasize "smaller lakes," because the bigger ones (Jessie, Round, Wabana, etc) all have fishing reports available. Post if you're interested and lets get a good conversation going.

      I would agree with the above answers, that the line of rivets are creating dirty water for you.  I would move to the left as well.  Also, I would guess you may need to lower the transducer some as well.  Get the transducer as low as you can without it making a large roostertail at speed.  If you have a good square or quality straight edge at home, place vertically along bottom of the hull, extending out from the stern.  The top of the straight edge should cover at least the bottom 2/3s of the transducer on the inside (motor side), maybe more if the pitch of the hull is greater.  Transducer should also have a slight downwards angle from transom. 2 more things, make sure the transducer is level(left to right) with a small level. Compare the level of the boat to the level of the transducer.  Boats don't always sit level on a trailer obviously. One thing to remember with side imaging is you beam going out towards the motor is often interfered with the outboard itself.  As you trim up the motor, that side will become clearer.
    • PRO-V
      That's great. I feel the same about mine.😁
    • Borch
      Well I don't have any inside info on a hot bite but have heard it's still a jig and minnow bite on the edge of flats in 7-12 of water.  If the wind is pounding into a flat I would recommend heading shallow and trolling cranks.  This would be a good option to at least find a spot to slow down and jig the edge once you've cover water and find fish.  I've done well on these flats all summer long if the wind is blowing into them.    Good luck!
    • Squirrelhawke
      this is what mine looks like
    • Borch
      I forgot about the speed issues with these transducers.   I also have a high speed dual frequency transducer mounted.  I run it as my primary and do a split screen when I want to see the side imaging.  Generally the side imaging works best under 6 mph with 2-3 mph being optimal.
    • h8go4s
      I agree you need to move it left to get away from the line of rivets. Then it's a matter of adjusting vertically and tilting it front to back/ up or down. The newer monster size SI ducers can be tough to get positioned right. That's why lots of guys run a second 2d ducer with a splitter cable which automatically switches in when the 2d signal from the SI ducer is lost. My boat is a Alumacraft Classic 165 tiller 50hp, top speed 29 mph. I was able to get position tweaked on it so I have SI, DI and 2d on plane, but it took a lot of adjusting. I resorted to mounting  a camera on a mini tripod and holding it over the transom to video the ducer underway. That helped, but still a PITA. Good luck.
    • Borch
      I would try moving it about 1-3 inches to the left.  It's sitting right behind a row of rivets which would cause turbulence and issues with readings.  You might also be picking up prop turbulence in that location that close to the centerline and on that side.  Seems the side imaging transducers are more sensitive for placement due to the issues your having and blocking the signal one side or the other.   The other side of the outboard could be a better option unless you have something else mounted there to help with prop turbulence.
