The Bucky Five: I Have Nothing Left to Say

1. Done With Favre, Forever - I'll never get how people still like this guy and consider themselves Packers fans, but to each his own. Personally, I don't even care anymore. Everytime Favre comes on the screen, I'm filled with an enormous amount of hatred that I just can't even describe, not matter how many times I've tried to right about it. Favre loved the fact that he was booed today, with that little shit wink of his that he gave when he walked on the field. I think one of the worst things about this whole thing is that Favre has said nothing or done nothing to thank the Packers fans for all their support for the time he was here. Say something in your post-game interview, take out an ad in the paper, mention it once during a press conference, just say something. I still just don't understand how some people still love this guy so blindly after he's done nothing to acknowledge them in the last two years.

The biggest surprise to me of this game was actually something that Troy Aikman said, when he mentioned that maybe Favre didn't want to be a Packer anymore, and how that's something that's never really explored when talking about the whole saga. The Favre we see this year is nothing like the Favre that we had down the stretch. You listen to the announcers, all of a sudden this is a Favre that's mentoring the young guys and being a fantastic teammate? Where was that in Green Bay, when Greg Jennings said on PTI on Thursday that he had no off-field relationship with Favre? And don't even get me started on the shit he was trying to pull by making sure Jennings was okay there on the sideline late in the game. I guess I'll never understand this guy, but especially I'll never understand the people that still love him, when he gives you nothing back in return. I can't even handle this anymore, Favre got his two victories, so whatever. I don't know what to do anymore. I'm done.

2. Stupid Mistakes - The final score was 38-26, but it could have been a lot worse than that. The Vikings raced off to a 24-3 lead at halftime, and I thought for sure this was going to be a blowout. The Packers could have kept that in check earlier, but there were some stupid mistakes in that first half. Rodgers played like a moron until the second half, the line missed assignments, the defense made Percy Harvin into a star, and Johnny Jolly probably committed the worst penalty of the season which helped give the Vikings their first touchdown. Just dumb stuff right away.

3. Speaking of That First Half... - If this game would have been a blowout, I might have for the first time come out and publicly questioned Mike McCarthy as a coach. I'm still a McCarthy guy, but he's got to do a better job of getting the team ready for games like this. It's a playoff-type atmosphere, and you can't be coming out flat like they did. I'm not sure what he said at halftime, but that seemed to work. Jacking up your team thirty minutes earlier though might have put another notch in the win column instead of giving us our third loss of the season.

4. Spencer Havner - Here's a question for you. Is this guy worth a fantasy pickup? That's all. Discuss. Oh, and another random thing, how weird is it to see Ahman Green returning kicks?

5. Where Do We Go From Here - So the Vikings are a better team than us, they've proven that. And the NFC North is theirs to lose. So now we have to switch gears and focus on one of the two wild card spots on the line. We're going to have to be in contention with Chicago, Atlanta, Carolina, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Dallas, and the Giants. Two spots for all these teams, which isn't going to be easy. I'm still confident we have the squad that can pull it off, but things are not going to be easy. This was a big game, and losing it sets us back further than any other game would have this season. Favre or no Favre, this was a game we needed to win at home. As the tears streaming down my face would suggest, things didn't work out that way.

seriously dude get over it...why would he take full page ad to thank fans who don't understand the situation within their own organization...it broke my heart too but at the end of the day watching #4 play is the best part of my sunday

You're right, anonymous. I'm sorry, since you obviously have more knowledge of the situation than I do. What was I thinking to be upset that Favre completed backstabbed Packers fans by going and playing for their rival?

Favre fan or Packer fan. Can't be both. If you're the former, please take your readership elsewhere.

People forget this. This article was from the offseason before we went 13-3. He wanted out of GB.

Aikman was right. Favre never wanted to come back to Green Bay. Fox will probably fire him for crushing the story line they were pushing. Favre fans are pathetic.

Travis said...

Bad news for the Vikes is that this game was Favre's Super Bowl. He'd be happy to retire today. The guy doesn't really care if he gets another Super Bowl or not. He's shown that every post season since he won one in 97'. Even though he's blown countless games in the playoffs he never shows remorse and always throws out the saying " I have nothing I need to prove". Just watch...

So Brett won - that's gotta sting to admit that. You guys are too funny, keep it up!

Although he's playing well this season, if you'd like to try to say else wise, go ahead!

Most important fact from this game that no one is talking about is that Benedict Cuatro strained his groin sometime before this game. The Vikings are 7-1....last year the Jets were, what, 9-2 before the old man started to break down. Just saying I've seen this before.
