Ugh

Another terrible game. The Texans did all they could to give the Packers the game and the Packers gave it right back with penalties. I will say that it seemed the Packers were getting the short end of the stick on some of the calls. If that was holding on Moll on Grant's first down run, than Kampman was most certainly held in the end zone on that dump off pass to Leach. Anyhow, the D's inability to stop the Texans when it mattered and the Packers crap % on third down helped lose the game. I also like how the Texans had not converted a 3rd and 9 or longer all season and convert two in the first half. Excellent job guys.

Would also like to point out that Steve Tasker may be the best color guy in the league. Also, I wish that Lions lineman would have completely blown out Jared Allen's knee. That guy leads the NFL in cheap shots. Sometimes you just get what is coming to you. It will be fun to watch the Vikes lose by 30 at home in the first round of the playoffs.

Yeah. There's really nothing much good to take from the game today. Let's lose out for the draft pick!

Charlie,

Had the same discussion with a friend today...I'm still trying to find a reason not to

Yeah, I hate to say it. But...well...they're pretty much done for the season.

Right now we're tied for the 9th worst record. Depending on how we play, we could end up anywhere from like 4th-5th to around 21st-22nd. LOSE THESE GAMES!

Get a nice top 10 pick, the Jets 2nd along with ours and have 3 picks in first 50 or so.

Theoretically we'll have an easier schedule next year, a QB with a full year of experience and a training camp without the Favre distraction. No reason not to be 11-5 at least next year.

Goldy- I agree on all points.

Somebody please destroy Jared Allen.

Steve Tasker or Gus Johnson? Best line:

"OHH KAPINOS! Pinching Pennies!"

How many 4th round picks can Ted get with a top-10 draft pick?

AP said...

Matt- All of them.

Dont forget a few 5ths as well...

To make it worse, that Texans final drive ruined the best Packer punt since Hentrich was in GB...
