Behind Enemy Lines - Packers Edition


I have to be extra-covert this week up in Cheeseland.  I’ve got the 007 spy kit out, which in Green Bay is comprised of a hunter’s orange coat, overalls and foam block of cheese headgear.  I have to give a thumbs down to my colleague at Lombardi Avenue, the Packers blog on the Fansided network, who hasn’t posted since December 11th.  I was hoping to get some good dirt off his site, but no luck. 

In turning to the Green Bay Press Gazette, I found an assortment of articles on Brett Favre, Mike Holmgren, Dorsey Levens. Antonio Freeman and other ghosts of Packers past.   Talk about living in the past.  What’s next, a quote by Vince Lombardi???  As Da Coach once said, “The past is for cowards and losers!”  Move on Cheeseheads!!!

I found this little animation by Joe Heller that is supposed to be a preview of Monday night’s game.  Not sure what that’s supposed to mean except maybe that it will be cold and snowy in Chicago.  And that Santa Claus doesn’t like bears.  I’d connect with that more if it wasn’t even colder and snowier in Green Bay.

Mike Vandermause writes a brief article on December 16 about remaining motivations for the Packers now that their playoff chances are dead:

– Sweeping the hated Bears would ease the pain of a losing record and effectively stick a sock in the mouths of those obnoxious fans south of the Wisconsin border.

Really, Mike.  Put a sock in this:  PACKERS SUCK!!!  PACKERS SUCK!!!

In Mike Woods’ column, talking about looking for a silver lining down the stretch, he takes a shot at an easy target:

With nothing left to play for, it’s almost as if they’re asking them to play hard the rest of the season, not |expecting them to. That, in itself, is troubling.

In any event, today we’re going in search of silver linings. In a season of continual disappointment, it’s like trying to find an honest politician in Chicago. But if you look hard enough, they’re out there.

Is that any way to talk about the President-elect???  Go ahead, kick us in the Blago.  Hey Mike, trying to find a silver lining for this Packers season is like trying to find a full set of teeth in Green Bay.

BEAR DOWN!!!
