The Top 10 Reasons the Packers Suck

By: Gini Dietrich | September 28, 2010 |

I have Bears season tickets so Jeannie Walters, Mr. W., Mr. D, and I made our way to Soldier Field last night for the game. Fully expecting a disappointing night, I felt like I was going to throw up with anticipation. Sure we’d won against the Lions in the season home opener (a gift, really) and we stunned the Cowboys last week, but I had more at stake here. I have LOTS of friends who are Packers fans and a loss would mean having to listen to them go on and on and on about their smelly cheese head team.

But when Devin Hester ran the ball back for the TD to take the lead, I exclaimed, “If we win this game, I am writing tomorrow about how much the Packers suck.” Fully realizing this has nothing to do with communications, I don’t care! We are 3-0!!

So here you are…the top 10 reasons the Packers suck.

Number 10: They wear cheese for hats.

Number 9: They set a team record last night…for 18 penalties.

Number 8: They had not one, but two, fourth quarter turnovers.

Number 7: They know better than to kick to Devin Hester, yet they did just that and failed to tackle him while he ran 62 yards for a touchdown.

Number 6: They had 152 (hahahaha!) yards in penalties.

Number 5: They had four false starts (or traveling, as I like to call it)!

Number 4: They no longer have youth and inexperience to blame.

Number 3: Aaron Rodgers does get rattled…after 60 minutes of being rushed, beat down, and chased.

Number 2: Aaaron Rodgers eats babies (and, as it turns out, he’s not Brett Favre).

Number 1: And last, but certainly not least, with four seconds left in the game, they tried anything to run a punt back, only to get called for penalty after penalty for illegal lateral moves. If you haven’t seen the last four seconds of the game, it’s worth finding it…really.

I can finally say…BEAR DOWN to all of my Packers fan friends!

the packers had 18 penalties for 152 yards, commited 2 turnovers in the fourth quarter, one while they were going in to score, had at least 2 interceptions late in the game called back because of penalties, had a field goal blocked, and the bears only won on a last second field goal. yeah, the packers sucked that game. a lot. but after all of that, how good can the bears be to only win by 3? at the last second?

Gini, "Darn near perfect, that's all" as my Packer-lovin ex-boss used to say. This was a sweet post, but, as you suggested in the first sentence there may be a major karma shift on its way....this may all come back. But hey, it was fun! (from a Chicagoan-Illini living in East Lansing near that character Dave Isbell!).

Julius Peppers attended my alma mater. Not sure if that aided in last night's victory, but I thought you should know that fact.

You deserve this post today, Gini. That's more than I can say for the Bears, though. They're running outta their miracle wins pretty quick this year, methinks.

Hopefully when we meet again in January, the Pack can simply rest their starters.

By the way, Mr. Peppers is a B-E-A-S-T. Worth the money.

Yes, hard to "bear" the aftermath of a game the Pack gifted to the Bears.

Your Bears were dominated in nearly every category except penalties--Cutler had two more interceptions overturned by, yes penalties. And yes, I'd be worried that "Mr. 26" interceptions has returned.

The Packers did win the stupid award, no doubt, although Mr 26 tried his best.

Lambeau in January-- I'll be gnashing my teeth and crying in my beer until then.

Go Pack.

HA HA HA HA!! He does eat babies. And those last 4 seconds were like the Green Bay follies. HA HA HA HA!

I love the Bears but this was a sloppy win and Cutler even said that when he was interviewed after the game. Hester was AWESOME! I don't want to jinx our Bears and since they will play the Pack in January I am going to keep my toes, fingers, and eyes crossed but I will say 3 and 0 SOUNDS AND FEELS AWESOME!!!!!!!!

What little of the game I actually watched, the announcers made the same points as 9, 7, 6, and 5. Many times in the 30 or so minutes I watched. I do have to diagree with you on #10. Come on, any excuse to wear silly/stupid hats is a good excuse. How else would you explain the corn cob things we wear for the Huskers? Oh and I still crack up when I think of little old you getting bloodthirsty at a football game. You know why.

Huge Bears fan - hate the Pack with a passion, but the penalties were the story in the game. Wasn't pretty, but a win is a win. The Bears are finding ways to win games, sometimes with a little luck - sounds a lot like the '06 season.

Player of the game, by far, was "Orange" Julius Peppers - no sacks, but a blocked FG, not to mention those false starts and holdings were a direct effect of his presence and the fear of the Pack's o-line.

BEAR DOWN!!

Nate, I love Peppers. I love Johnny Knox more, but I agree that was money well spent.

I took Trent to the pathetic Cards game last night. I normally do not watch the NFL. I'm going to go hide under my desk now to avoid the expected salvo that will be coming my way from the Northside.

MK, I don't know how you didn't watch that entire game. HOLY COW! The last four seconds. Find it. Watch it.

I think spending money on Peppers was a GREAT move!
