Are you ready for some football? O wait, we have to wait six more days, crap. So much to talk about this week, let me see, the pinball selects Photo-TwitterGate 2011. Um, Nick Barnett, step away from the cell phone, repeat, step away from the cell phone down! Honestly, you haven't played for months and now you want go and jack up a couple of great weeks in Packers history, because you want to be in team photo, STUPID JAG MOVE. Anyway, plenty of great stories to come especially the ones about Michael Irvin reopening the WhiteHouse this week for former Cowboy offensive tackle Flozell Adams...get some, make it rain!!

In the grand scheme of things it's clear that the Packers have done alot of damage on offense even without the two offensive weapons of Ryan Grant and JerMichael Finley. In my honest opinion, I think losing Finley has been a blessing in disguise for the receiving core for the Packers. I feel that the progression of the group of receivers Driver, Jones, Jennings, and Nelson has helped create a stronger unit than what would have been with Finley being there to zap production and continuity. That said, the loss of Ryan Grant at the beginning of the season, clearly cost the Packers several close games that would have been won had he been there, i.e. Washington and Detroit to name a few. Both were tough losses, but my feeling is Ryan Grant would have been more beneficial down the stretch than what Finley could have provided.

Whether or not anyone is following the hibernating Quevedo Buffett anymore is a mute point, because I am bringing it this week and next, cause it's SUPER BOWL TIME. After the Packers sent the Bears packing yesterday with their sissie-snowpants quarterback at the helm, it is time to give credit where it's due and that's to the brain's behind the Packers success, Ted Thompson. Like him or hate him, he is the reason for the great success this year. His movement up in the draft two years ago to get two impact pro-bowl defensive players in Clay Matthews and BJ Raji was the key to the Packers resurgence. This move up in the draft could be compared to the Brett Favre trade if the Packers can finish the deal and win the big show in Dallas two weeks from now. Much more to come...
