  • The miracle of the Reggie Wedgie

       February 06, 2011

    A lot of smart football people are going to analyze the Packers' victory tonight. They'll talk about Rodgers' great play, the Steelers' turnovers and who knows what else. What they won't talk about is why the Packers really won. They won because my Mom put on her "Reggie Wedgie" necklace. The second she touched this sacred object, the Steelers fumbled.

    Behold the power of Reggie:

    And Go Pack Go!

    Also, the Bears still suck :)

    jealous Vikings fan comments

    Super Bowl 45 will go down as the worst super bowl in NFL history because (1) The Packers won the super bowl (2) the half time show sucked ass (3) the commercials sucked ass (4) The packer fans sucked ass. Did I mention the packer fans suck ass?


    First of all, Packer fans are the worst fans in the NFL. No offense to you who actually complement us die hard Vikes fans who congratulate the Pack for winning the Super Bowl. Second, come on packer fans, can you be more immature to throw it in our faces when we say congratulations on winning the super bowl. And third, you Packer fans think you would really like it if your biggest rival moved to LA? Yeah thats what I thought. But from a PACKER HATER, Congrats on winning the Super Bowl.


    Why does the NFL punish success? Why does the NFL make the most successful teams pick last in next year's draft? The best teams should be able to pick first! Why does the NFL help small-market teams like Green Bay win Super Bowls by redistributing the wealth? That sounds very much like European Socialism.


    On the bright side, Puker fans will celebrate by drinking, then driving and smashing their cars into each other. Good riddance!


    I hope Packer fans choke on their own vomit tonight!!!

    wait, the vikings are "the packers biggest rival?" since when? bigger rivals: bears, cowboys, 49ers, to name just a few. i guess it makes minnesotans feel better about themselves to think that we care about the vikings.  
     
    #  February 6th, 2011 10:57 PM      kris
    the Vikings will be easily replaced by either the Rams and/or Lions as our second biggest rival.

    I'm just a bit appalled that they want us to die in drunk driving accidents though  
     
    #  February 6th, 2011 11:03 PM      kris
    I'm watching ESPN and literally, the conversation is "What do you like best about Aaron Rodgers?" It's such a lovefest. I'm so so so happy for him.  
     
    #  February 6th, 2011 11:35 PM      james
    The Vikings are not the second biggest rival for at least 3/5 of the state's population. Seriously, this was weird for me moving up here, seeing Packers fans from near MN care so much about the Vikings. No one near Milwaukee or Madison cares. It's like Wisconsin playing Northwestern. No one cares that much. At least, that's the way it was before Favre went to MN. That may have changed things in some fans' minds, but it's a blip on the radar. Packers fans don't care about the Vikings. I've had a few Vikings fans challenge me about the Vikes moving, saying, "You should be against it too, do you really want to lose your biggest rival?" lol.  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 12:27 AM      kris
    really? i don't believe that. i know lots of madison and milwaukee people who consider them a big rival.

    but reallly, who cares? WE WON THE SUPER BOWL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 12:34 AM      james
    The Bears are "the rival," the Vikings are pretty much like the Lions. No one cares.

    Super Bowl. Sweet. I predict the Packers make it back to the SB at least 2 of the next 5 years.  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 12:36 AM      kris
    I hope so. I mean, on one hand I know it's hard, but on the other hand the Packers were so unlucky this year and still won the Super Bowl so it's hard to imagine them having less success with more luck, or even just regular luck.

    thought - with the Rodgers era in full swing I predict a new wave of Packers nostalgia that bypasses the you-know-who era. in other words, an old school Majkowski jersey would be hot  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 12:44 AM      james
    See this SB prediction:



    I agree. They *should* have been a 14 win team. My lord, they never trailed by more than 7, and didn't lose a game by less than 4. This is the makings of a dynasty. I hope TT does what he should and cut some dead weight. Ryan Grant, Jerimichal Finley, get rid of em. Tramon Williams can go too - there's no excuse for punching another player during a game.  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 12:47 AM      kris
    Get rid of Finley? Are you crazy? All he did was stupidly tweet when he got his feelings hurt. That's not a big deal. The guy is uncoverable.

    Williams made a bonehead play, but it's no worse than an interception or a fumble or blown coverage. You don't need to get rid of him for it. Don't be so hard on them.  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 12:50 AM      james
    Everyone is so hung up on Favre and thoughts of his GB legacy. He won a single (that's 1) SB, and spent many years throwing more INTs than he did TDs. I know I'm being optimistic, but I think this may end up like that whole New England affair. Before Tom Brady, didn't they have a QB who was pretty good too?

    I was flabbergasted when the Pats traded Bledsoe to Buffalo. Everyone was. It was unthinkable. But now, few people remember how great he was for NE. This Favre thing is the exact same way. (Except we should have canned him 5 years earlier.)  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 12:53 AM      james
    We just won the SB without any help from Finley. Why do you think he's so valuable? Randy Moss is uncoverable too, and I don't see many SB wins on his resume. Finley isn't worth the trouble.

    (I'm not reacting to his recent tweet. I've disliked the guy for a long time. Follow him on Twitter and you'll see what a cancer he is.)  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 12:53 AM      kris
    honestly, if Rodgers never played another game, his accomplishments already equal Favre's accomplishments, as far as the team is concerned.

    Now, the fun question is whether Rodgers can rival Starr's legacy?  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 12:55 AM      kris
    1. Driver is done. I love the guy, but he's near the end of his career.
    2. Jennings is good, but not great.
    3. The rest of our receivers can't catch consistently.

    We won in spite of the receivers tonight. A player like Finley can take advantage of how good Rodgers is. Have you ever heard Rodgers talk about Finley? He's in awe of the guy - he knows Finley is his biggest weapon.  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 1:00 AM      james
    No, I don't think he can. No one will ever replace Starr in Packers fans' minds.

    Rodgers is a great QB, don't get me wrong, but I believe that it's a result of TT & MM, mostly TT. The team had like 9000 injuries this year and still won the SB. TT knows what he is doing.

    I've also always believed that Favre's success was a result of Wolf & Holmren's guidance, I think history has proven me right.  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 1:04 AM      kris
    I disagree a bit. I think Rodgers is just a friggin' Iceman. I was pankicking on the Packers' last drive, but Rodgers doesn't. Rodgers didn't panic against AZ last year or the Falcons this year.

    He makes me feel comfortable even when they're behind and if he makes me feel like that then how does he make his teammates feel? Imagine the confidence they must have in him and how that helps them perform?  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 1:09 AM      james
    I love Donald Driver. I'd never count him out or say that he's done. As long as Donald Driver is on the field, the Packers are a better team. I hope that when he's done, he sticks around in a coaching or front office position. And I trust Donald Driver to tell me when he's done.

    Jennings really let me down this year. I was pegging him to be the next Moss-Harrison-Rice-esk superstar.

    I think tonight was an anomaly as far as drops go. Maybe it was the big stage, maybe it was the time off. A few times, it was Rodgers' fault. How about Jordy Nelson, though? He started poorly but ended spectacularly. Props to Rodgers & MM for sticking with him.

    Finley... meh. Like I said, we just wont the SB without him. He can't be that great.  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 1:11 AM      kris
    Nelson & Jones. Ugh. They just drive me crazy.

    I hope Driver sticks with the Packers too. It always makes me happy to see Edgar Bennett on the sidelines. I feel the same way about Driver.  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 1:16 AM      james
    I didn't mean to take anything away from Rodgers. I think he's fantastic. Both on the field and off the field. I can't find a single negative thing to say about Aaron Rodgers. He's the man. He's great. I feel fortunate to have him as a Packer.

    But also remember that the Packers are great at developing QBs. Favre, Brunell, Hasselbeck, etc.

    Matt Cassel was fantastic too, but only under Bill Belichick.  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 1:22 AM      kris
    Didn't Cassel take the Chiefs to the playoffs this year?

    I get what you're saying, but I think you're underestimating Rodgers a little bit, if you can believe that tonight :)

     
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 1:26 AM      james
    Oh god, I didn't mean to do that. I actually think that Rodgers is the Steve Prefontaine of quarterbacking. This guy is just unbelievable.

    I was only trying to say that he wouldn't have gotten to where he is without the GB QB coaching crew. And that without Aaron Rodgers, TT would make the necessary adjustments and still have a competitive team. I think TT could make any QB into a star, but I also think that Aaron Rodgers is special.  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 1:30 AM      kris
    That's better :)

    I agree. I think that, for example, Matt Flynn will almost certainly be an adequate starter for an NFL team within a couple of years.  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 1:36 AM      james
    Matt Flynn could start for the Packers next year and the team would finish with a winning record and probably make the playoffs.

    But doesn't Flynn's great performance against the Pats tell us something? Was it Flynn who almost won that game, or was it the coaching?  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 1:42 AM      kris
    This is what I think it says - I think it's that TT has built a really good team that's competitive with anyone, even with some of their best players out.

    And clearly, winning the SB is about more than having the single best player, it's why someone like Dan Marino doesn't have a SB ring and why Peyton Manning doesn't have more.

    But, the kicker is that winning the Super Bowl is hard and you still need someone or something to put you over the top or rescue you when things go to hell. To be honest, things went to hell for the Packers this year and Rodgers came along on the white horse and saved us.

    I don't mean to diminish TT and MM and you're right that that Pats game is a testament to their work, but almost beating the Patriots is a long way from winning the SB and a guy like Rodgers is what elevates them from a good team, a playoff team to a Super Bowl winner  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 1:47 AM      james
    You're exactly right.  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 5:45 PM      themandownthehall
    Just stopping by to send a congrats. I was begrudgingly cheering the Pack as I despise the Steelers almost as much as I hate the Cowboys...

    Enjoy the parties!  
     
    #  February 7th, 2011 8:16 PM      kris
    Thanks! I've just now managed to finally change out of my Rodgers jersey and into my Frozen Four sweatshirt (gotta keep it in the championship family).  
     
    #  February 9th, 2011 6:34 PM      themandownthehall
    Ah the frozen four! Way too cool. Almost makes me wish I lived in Michigan again. Well, no, not almost. Kind of, sort of. Maybe a tiny bit...

    So how far are you from St. Paul? Is it feasible you can go? Hope Wiscy makes it for you. Hope Michigan doesn't need a miracle run like last year to get there...  
     
    #  February 9th, 2011 8:32 PM      kris
    Oh no, it's my 2006 Frozen Four sweatshirt

    I can't imagine the Badgers in the Frozen Four this year. They've been on a roll lately, but they're young and they've for the most part only been beating 2nd tier teams.
