Hey, y'all, how've you all been? I've really missed this board and the fans for the last few years. Lots of things have changed; I live in the South now myself (Kentucky), having moved down here to marry a woman in 2012 - shortly after I stopped posting here. I think a lot of what helped me adjust to the culture and fit in here was the time I spent here, where all you people educated me about the culture and the personality of the South. Sure do miss winter, though.

I've felt badly ever since I stopped posting here, because I was guilty of letting team rivalries and loyalties get in the way of friendships and (sometimes) good manners, and I allowed myself to forget that I was a guest in your house. I decided that the respectful thing to do would be to move on, because I didn't want to be disruptive in someone else's house. But I've always missed the place and the people, and the vibe, and always wished I could come back.

I'm not going to let myself get drawn into the "Rodgers vs. Brees" bllsht again, or anything of that nature, because jesus, it just doesn't matter. I can do cartwheels about the Packers on Packer boards. I'm not on a Saints board to have orgasms over the Packers; you come to Saints boards to mingle with Saints fans. This time, I'm going to keep that foremost in my mind, and leave the rivalries and the ****-measuring contests for other forums.

So in that vein, I thought this would be a good week to come back and chat with y'all. I'm really sorry that you guys aren't in the postseason with us this year, because the Saints are still (and always will be) my second team, and you all have my sympathies that it didn't work out for you this season. But I know how much y'all hate the Falcons, so... I thought some of you might be interested in a Cheesehead's perspective on how they match up against the Green and Gold this week.

So, ask me anything. What can i tell you about our team that you don't already know? Injury reports, who's hot and who's in the doghouse, what's the locker room scuttlebutt... I'll share anything y'all wanna know.

It's really good to see some of you guys again. I hope I'm not unwelcome. If I am, don't be shy about letting me know - but if I'm not, then let's talk some football!

Your team's defense finished barely above ours in total yards per game, and -- like us -- did not score any defensive touchdowns. Our offense was technically more prolific than yours. Yet we are here, and you are there. Whats your secret?

Kentucky is about 400 miles north of The South.

One word - AaronRodgers. It's not how many yards he gets, or even how many plays he makes - it's when he gets the yard and when he makes the plays. This is the best I've ever seen him play; even better than the Superbowl year. When the team absolutely needs a clutch play, he finds a way to make it happen. He just plain wills the team to win.

I just mentioned in another thread that he's the one who ignored McCarthy's play call on that 3rd and 20. McCarthy sent in 2 plays, and Rodgers knew they were both bull***. So he drew up a play in the huddle, told the line what to block, told the receivers what routes to run and where to be, and pitched it down the left sideline to exactly the 1st-down marker.

This is what he does when he's playing at his peak - he just plain, flatout, finds some way to make it work when he absolutely has to. He's really the only thing we have going for us on that team - it's Rodgers, then maybe/sorta Matthews, and then Jordy Nelson who could probably play #1 receiver for a lot of teams but isn't any Julio Jones, and then a few other guys who are decent to good but nothing special.

If you watch the games, you'll notice that most of the receivers don't get much separation most of the time, and most of them are not route-runners or ballhawks. They just go where Rodgers is expecting them to be, and he gets the ball right where they can catch it. This team is not one of the Top 4 talented teams in the league by any means, and the defense is horrible for a playoff team - they just have one of the greatest QBs ever to play the game, and he carries the whole damned team.

That's it. That's really it. You have one QB who is probably going to finish as one of the greatest ever to play the game, and the rest of the team believing in him and making sure they do everything he expects of them because he's gonna have their *** if they don't. Aside from that one guy, there is nothing about this team that's any more special than a half dozen (or even a dozen) other teams. No Rodgers, and they're not even in the playoffs, period.

Well, depends on which direction you're coming from. I'm working my way in the right direction, at least. The music, the food, and the people just get better with every mile. Wish I could say the same about the temperature, but life is about making compromises.

Trying to be polite here, but they look like a bunch of candyasses to me. Cool socks, I guess, but what's up with them jerseys?

Shoot... that's where I had dinner tonight, too. I chose the pot pie this time. I'm fond of the pot pie. Nice crust.

But anyway, half the women who worked at the counter looked like they could kick every one of those guys' ***** up one side of the parking lot and down the other, and make him come back tomorrow and ask for more.

despite the fact that he was then a viking----when you picture brett favre, is it with massive bruises?
I saved it as my desktop, so that when I get bored surfing porn I just minimize my browser and I can stare at that for a while. I still think I may get it as a tattoo someday.

Welcome back, Ice! Usually I'm not a Green Bay or an Aaron Rodgers fan, but this Sunday I need Rodgers to unleash God's wrath on the Falcons.:hihi:

There was a thread started early in the year about his play and his over all game. How he was on the decline and how he was never really as good as poeple think. Even last year With a team full of holes he almost willed his team to the NFC champ game. Team was out of sync earlier and I knew that would make a run. Good answer Rogers is the X factor. Again A roster full of holes and injuries but Rogers is playing championship football

I remember that. That's when i said, "Let's go get Rodgers to take Brees place!" Needless to say i good a few Red Thumbs. But Rodgers is simply the best QB in the league now. The scary thing is that he has just reached his prime.

Have a soft spot for Green Bay anyway, but even if I didn't, think it goes without saying that you hopefully punish the Falcons this weekend!

Dude! Welcome back! You've been missed. Always enjoyed your posts. Seriously, hang around a while.

ETA: Now I remember that whole Rodgers/Brees thing you're talking about in the OP. Yeah, let's stay away from that topic altogether.

I'm the biggest Packers fan in the world this weekend.
