Well folks I'm not sure what you say about that other than the Packers dropped a big dump in New York and move on. And it wasn't just an ordinary dump. It was a 'just burned through a dirty 30 of PBR and went to Taco Bell at 3am' dump where you start texting yourself a last will and testament just in case. But outside of that I think you just have to chalk it up to the Giants coming out motivated and wanting it more. They were on a losing streak, coming off of a bye with 2 weeks to prepare, in prime time and at home. The Packers are banged up in every facet of the game and came off of a hard fought win in Detroit. When you add all that up it was probably going to be a loss no matter what, you just didn't think we'd get destroyed the way we did. I mean we were a Goomba last night. A Puddy. A member of the Foot Clan. Like we were just never in it from the word 'go' really and were disposed of pretty easily. Actually remember one of the first battle scenes in Braveheart where Wallace and his crew and running at the British with their face-paint on and flames in the background and they just run over the Brits like it was nothing? THAT'S what last night felt like.
Bottom line is while it wasn't all that encouraging to be beaten the way they were, it's just one loss and honestly it was one of those games you thought would be a loss anyway before the season even started. Now you head home to the Fortress of Solitude for a couple of division games before a showdown in Chicago for the division. I could see us running the table but the Chicago game is the lynch pin to that scenario. 12-4 and best, 11-5 at worst and a wild card. Biggest concern is the offensive line right now. Like the only two people associated with the Packers that had a good night were Clay Matthews and Bryan Bulaga's agents. Granted the Giants defensive line is formidable, but with the way Marshall Newhouse was blocking last night they could have had Ice Box O'Shea out there and still gotten to Rodgers. Get that squared away, get Jennings, Woodson and Matthews back and we'll be fine.
PS: Need some perspective? While the clock was winding in the 4th quarter I started going back into the schedule/results archive on ESPN.com. Last night was Aaron Rodgers' 75th career regular season start. In that time frame the Packers have lost by MORE than 10 points FOUR times. That's ridiculous. They haven't lost by more than 12 since his first season in 2008 when they got trucked by the Saints on Monday night in New Orleans. Pretty impressive stuff.
Double PS: I don't know him personally but I think Cory Thoman and I have a lot in common. I went to school and wasted my parent's money on a degree in 'Media and Technology' and became a blogger too lazy for spell check. Cory went to school for a graphic arts degree and is spending time creating steaming poop Clip Art for me to use in said blog. Well today Cory our paths of ineptitude have crossed. Until I need another crudely drawn piece of poop for this poorly conceived blog, I bid you adieu my friend.
