Golob, Steinbacher, Zwickel and I are at a secret undisclosed location. News, science, music and Brad. The wifi is free, but the beer is not very good.
There are a surprising amount of Pack fans here, and despite Favre’s big-baby elbow injury, I have hope. But he needs to stop throwing those shots to no one in particular.
Because he held onto for too long, Brett took a shot in the arm and the Pack’s second string quarterback is in. BUT they’re getting it together. Sure, their D hasn’t been able to cover a single deep ball, but whatever.
Also, the NFL Network looks like compressed horseshit. It’s ugly.
The score is 27-17. Cowboys.
Give it time.
Update: And now Green Bay’s kicker is having to make tackles. Rad. The kicker should never have to do that, although it was rad watching Josh Brown fuck up Devin Hester a few weeks ago.
Favre appears to be wandering out of the locker room.
Cowboys went for it on 4th and 2 and I THINK the Pack managed to stop Marion “the Barbarian” Barber. Nice.
Update 2: Jonathan Golob wants me to post this.
Update 3: Brad is complaining that they’re not running Ryan Grant enough. It’s true
Update 4: Brad just called their backup QB a “pussy” for not taking two linebackers head on. And Donald Lee just got me some points. Like one, but whatever.
Zwickel wants me to take a poll: Do the ladies like Brett Favre?
Update 4: Ryan Grant just got Brad some fantasy points! TOUCHDOWN PACK!
Update 5: No one reads Slog after 6 o’clock.
Update 6: AS I PREDICTED *ahem* the Cowboys are crumbling. AJ Hawk just stuffed the barbarian behind the line. 3rd and 14 and a FALSE START. 3rd and 19, douches.
Goddammit. Patrick Crayton goes uncovered and they get the first down and now Marion Barber gets the unintentional face-mask.
The Packers D is crumbling.
Update 7: TO is overrated Zwickel. W. The Pack challenges TO’s monster catch, because he was juggling it out of bounds.
And the call is for the Pack because TO can’t hold onto the ball.
Update 8: Marion Barber just busted the Pack up and ran it 2 yards from the end zone.
Meanwhile, TO got smoked at the line and the Cowboys got a delay of game penalty.
TO JUST JUGGLED THE BALL IN THE ENDZONE, BOUNCED IT AND GOT PICKED OFF!!! Packers ball.
I’m signing off now.
Angela Garbes is “in da house”, as the kids say. She’s rooting for Tony Romo because she’s a terrible person. Oh, and I think he’s her fantasy QB, but that’s not important.
Oh, and Garbes wants me to say that she’s also rooting for Greg Jennings and “fantasy football divides the soul.”
Brett Favre is still out.
Um, I think the Pack are kicking on 4th and inches, which is fucking stupid. They need a touchdown and a field goal, but this is a 51 yarder.
BUT IT”S GOOD!
Bradley Steinbacher: “The refs in this game are bullshit!”
I agree, but then they showed the replay, which did have a pretty rough facemask on Marion Barber.
Still, there are some Super Bowl 2005-esque calls this game. As in terrible.
Update whatever: They’re sending Brett Favre to the locker room to make more Soylent Green. Or maybe I should make a Logan’s Run reference here. I dunno. Pick your poison.
The Cowboys are running out the clock like a bunch of jerks.
Brad: “This is why [the Cowboys] won’t win the Super Bowl. They’re not going for it on fourth down.”
Indeed, Nick Folk just kicked a field goal. I’m an idiot for dropping him and putting in ol’ faithful Gostowski.
With a minute and 3 left, it seems unlikely that the Pack are walking away from this one with a win, but they gave it there all. I respect that. Alot more then I respect stupid, stupid Tony Romo.
Update your mom: Donald Driver just had a good run. 49 seconds left.
Game is over. # 34, whoever, just dropped a pass on 4th and 1. What an asshole.
This was fun. I’ll be back once a week until they make me stop. Which will probably be tomorrow morning when I get into the office.
27-37 Cowboys FINAL.
Angela Garbes: “Tony Homo.”
Sure, the Pack lost, but y’know what? Their starting quarterback was out for like the whole game. I call bullshit.
Next Thursday. I’ll be here. Using the live slogging tool. Because it shouldn’t just be for presidential debates.
