"The Seahawks are my new favorite team."

Brett Favre, in a text to [newly signed] Seattle kicker Ryan Longwell, via Peter King

As if I needed one more reason to hate Favre or the Seahawks.

"Hey, let him hate us. We hate them, too. That’s the bottom line. We don’t like them. They don’t like us."

Green Bay Packers’ Greg Jennings on Brandon Marshall’s recent locker room motivational gifts

I love Packers-vs-Bears weeks.

(via apoplecticskeptic)

I love a good old fashioned rivalry.  I couldn’t be happier to hear Brandon Marshall say he hates the Packers.  GOOD.  You’re a Chicago Bear, you’re SUPPOSED to hate the Packers.  And we hate you back.  That’s the Packers/Bears football mentality that’s been missing due to 2 things: 

  • free agency
  • the Bears being terrible since 1992.

Let’s just get this embarrassing shitshow over with.

And THERE he is.

Our “elite” TE, Lady Butterfingers.

Jermichael “Dropped by” Finley

This is 287 pound, former Badger/now Texan J.J. Watt jumping on top of a 55” box, flat-footed.

I hope we triple team this monster tonight.

So, it’s finally happened: The replacement referees finally screwed up bad and cost a team a game. Despite Green Bay Packers safety M.D. Jennings grabbing an interception of a Hail Mary throw, he had the ball stripped away by the Seattle Seahawks’ Golden Tate, who received credit for a touchdown — something which he didn’t earn, based on multiple camera views of the situation. ”That was two of the worst calls at the end of a football game that I can remember,” said ESPN’s Jon Gruden.

I can’t even this morning.

FAKE GIELD GOAL!

WOW!

OH LOOK JERMICHAEL DROPPED ANOTHER PASS.

apoplecticskeptic:

Incredible. We should probably just respect him more. Then he’ll catch a few balls.

Dead to me.

Until he catches a TD.  Then yay.

Then dead to me again.

Dude is guilty until proven innocent for the foreseeable future.

here’s the first lambeau leap. december 26, 1993.

"The Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions fielded offensive juggernauts a season ago, but the most explosive offense in the NFC North in 2012 will reside in Chicago."

That’s the funniest thing I’ve read this offseason, by far.

NFL.com news: QB-RB-WR trio provides Bears with potent and balanced punch

(via apoplecticskeptic)

The Bears could have any WR in the league and it wouldn’t matter, because Jay Cutler is horrible at throwing footbals while laying on the ground with a defensive lineman on top of him.

Ok, a friendly exchange between fans earlier today sparked an actual legit friendly wager between fellow tumblrs and our respective companies.
evangotlib (of blip) and myself (of The License Lab) are putting our company reps on the line, along with some local artisan foodstuffs, for the showdown happening this Sunday at Lambeau Field : the Green Bay Packers vs. the New York Giants.
It’s the big city versus small town America!
It’s bourbon versus cheese!
It’s video versus music!
Anywhoo… I shall be the recipient of a lovely bottle of bourbon from Tuthilltown Spirits when my Packers win this Sunday.And, only because wagers like this have to contain two items on the table, I’ve put some award-winning cheese on the line, including (if I can locate a wedge) the Evalon* from LaClare Farms. I mean, it’s not like I’m going to have to pay up, so I’m not too worried about needing to locate this rare sample of Wisconsin goodness.
It’s on, Evan… it’s on. And the fun-loving smack-talker in me just can’t let this gem pass: he asked for the points. :)
*h/t to themattsmith for the cheese rec

That whiskey is going to go great with the cheese.

We’ve gone 33-8 since.

Of those eight defeats… three were lost in overtime, two were lost on last-second field goals in regulation, and one was lost on a touchdown pass as time expired.

ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS.

Matt Forte averaged 8 inches a carry against the Packers

This may be my favorite stat of the week if not the season.
