Badgers, Packers, Mallards. Paddling, running, golfing. And bikes!

We were sitting in the end zone where both safties occured. Rodgers was in the tackle box when he whipped the ball. Legitimate safety IMHO.

I was at college game with three safeties. When Arizona State broke Nebraska's long winning string in 1996, winning 19-0, the Devils recorded three safeties, including one where they tackled future Packer Ahman Green in the end zone. Perhaps the most amazing game I've ever attended.

That's crazy. The funny thing is that if you took away one of the safties, the Packers would have won.

Yeah. Real funny. Hey when do those roided up Williams boys get to serve their 4 game suspensions?

Something about an irregular passing motion. Favre can get away with that, because he often completes them. Rodgers, as a newbie starter, doesn't get those same breaks.

I'm no Queens fan sister! Who knows about the Williams boys. I just wish Jared Allen wouldn't have played.

Yeah but we handled that freak nicely in week 1. His worst game ever in Allen's opinion. I think Chad Clifton has been eating a big bag of suck before each game for the last couple of weeks.

Every single player on the offensive line should be arrested for felony theft when they cash their weekly paycheck. Clifton may have sucked the hardest, but they all sucked hard. They played like they had just come in from a 48 hour bachelor party.

I posted this somewhere else, so I'll post it here as well: SI.com has passing splits for all quarterbacks, including Aaron Rodgers. On third down, he is 59 for 88 (67%), for 778 yards, 10 TDs, and 2 picks. A passer rating of 123.2. And he’s been sacked 8 times.

This other quarterback I looked up was 57 of 82 (69.5%), for 575 yards, 2 TDs, and 6 picks, with a passer rating of 66.9. Any guesses as to who this other QB is?

I’m pretty happy with the guy we’ve got. I’d be even happier if we could keep guys on the other team off of him.
