Congratulations on a great game. I'm a Packer fan first and foremost and as a Packer fan I've seen a lot of your 273 games and I think tonight's performance might be one of the top 5 football games of your career. You were nearly flawless going 24-31, 274 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions. You've got one hell of a running back in the backfield with you, an offensive line that gives you literally all day to make plays, and receivers that catch the ball when the ball is thrown where it needs to be. As much as I wanted you to fail tonight it was a nice stroll down memory lane and you are a great quarterback, despite being a selfish, egotistical pre-madonna who held our franchise hostage for the last 6 years of your career with all the retirement talk. I think after you finally do retire and get enshrined in the Hall of Fame as a Packer (I hope), I'll love you again, but I stand by my team and my general manager and still believe we made the right decision in going with Aaron Rodgers.
I only have one request, one wish for the rest of your season. Please stay healthy for 4 more weeks. You owe it to the fans to show up in Lambeau, start the game, take your boo's like a man, and try and beat us on our turf which maybe the last thing to check-off on your career to-do list, aside from winning another Super Bowl. The weather might not be as nice as the air conditioned dome. Our defense is going to have a new game plan to stop the offense. We may not hold AP to only 55 yards but you can't possibly look as good as you did last night. Aren't you contractually obligated to make a Brett Favre bone-headed play at-least once during a game?
Be ready, the Packers are going to use the bye week to get everyone healthy and focused for the rest of the year and take care of business against the Lions and Browns before the Rematch of the Century. Hopefully our offensive and defensive play callers will figure out what the hell they are doing. Our offensive line is bad, but I doubt we'll give up 7 sacks again as Clifton will give Jared Allen a little more of a fight. Our QB is going to learn to throw the ball away, not force things ala 1994 Brett Favre, and not turn the ball over essentially 3 times if you include the goal line stand.
So Brett, enjoy your 40th birthday and good luck against the Rams, Ravens, and Steelers and we'll see ya back in your old stomping grounds on November 1st.
