:lol:   It was amazing how so many Packer fans and the Packer reporters coveted Fangio so much.

Statistically, Pettine's career as a D-coordinator has been much better than that of Fangio, but fans wanted him anyway.  :lol:

Most likely just to f**k with Chicago.

Bears announced a 3 year deal for Fangio today, so whoopee!

Not a Packers fan but as a big time fan of another team (Cowboys), I can easily recognize those players that just exemplify the team.  Losing Jordy Nelson must hurt.  It hurts me!  Those are the type of players you just wish would retire from the one team they ever played for.  Jason Witten is that guy for my team.

I had hoped that the Packers would keep him for one more year.  As the team is now more active in free agency, any veteran player with a big contract is in danger.  The business side of the NFL is one cruel animal.  

Jordy Nelson introduced himself to the NFL in late 2010, when he took a perfect pass from Rodgers on a skinny post and zoomed 80 yards for a TD against the Giants.  He Leaped effortlessly into the Lambeau seats, the crowd went bonkers, and the Packers began their magical Super Bowl run.

The greatness of Aaron Rodgers has grown even bigger and better, Packer fans!  

Rodgers and his teammates were not to be denied, even after a thorough beating by da Bears in the first half.  Rodgers came out after halftime - literally one-legged - and orchestrated a comeback for the Ages.

It was a total team effort.  Better blocking, some great play-making by Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, and Bear-killer Randall Cobb, and a much better defensive performance all contributed to an Epic Win.

Die hard Vikings fan here, but even l cringe at the calls those zebras made. Bad and missed calls on both sides. They need to let them play. They should not have that much influence on the outcome of a game. I take nothing away from Rodgers. He was a warrior. There were some nice catches by Thielen and Diggs, and throws by Cousins. Our rookie kicker needs to straighten out his foot though. Ghosts of Blair Walsh vs Seattle. Ugh

That was the most bizarre, Twilight Zone, Murphy's Law game I have ever seen.  Both teams made some great plays, some bad plays, and some really dumb plays.  When it's Packers-Vikings, I've come to expect the unexpected, but today was truly mystifying.  

But the League had better figure out RIGHT NOW how the officials should call pass interference and especially roughing the passer.  There is just way too much variation between officiating crews.  Players and fans are sick of it.

The League and the Refs are changing/harming the sport in a fundamental way.  Clay Matthews is a high-profile player, but we can be sure than many other defenders are getting the same BS treatment.    

People who have never played football are making up these rules.  There is NO way a large defender like a LB or D-lineman can stop himself when he's rushing the QB at full force.  If a running back or wide receiver had the ball out in the field, these textbook tackles would not be flagged.  

The NFL is only concerned with the Bottom Line - MONEY.  They don't want the QB's knocked out of the game, because it would cause a drop in revenue.  If they say that they care about player safety, then they're LYING.  They care about losing money.

Now THIS is sacking the quarterback!  The Packer defense hounded Josh Allen all game long, with nary a bad look from the refs.

An excellent performance by the defense was tempered by an inconsistent Packer offense.  Aaron Rodgers & Co. felt that they should have scored more often, but they have themselves to blame.  Dropped passes, off-target passes, and inconsistent running the ball will do that.....

But it was still a great win.  Shutouts are never a bad thing!
