Even Kevin Greene Has a Poster of Clay Matthews in his Bedroom
I bet when it’s late at night and it’s quiet in the Greene household, even coach Kevin Greene dreams about being Clay Matthews.
Matthews has a strained something, but started this afternoon’s game and was a grunge-haired beast. I started rubbing my hands together like a sinister Monte Burns when I saw him wrap up Kolb before sending him headfirst into the turf, then to the sidelines, wondering why he was suddenly on the tilt-a-whirl. Can you imagine him wrapping up Favre the same way?
I’m a busy man, so I’m not going to rehash the whole game. You saw it, right? You know what happened. But a few thoughts I’d like to share:
Charles Woodson appears to have picked up right where he left off at the end of the 2009 season, ball-hawking and just generally being The Man.
How is Michael Vick still breathing after Nick Collins drove that truck into him when he was headed for the endzone?
If Donald Driver was boobs, he’d be a total double D cup. His play today, as usual, was tits.
Saying the words “Justin Harrell” and “season-ending injury” is like Taco Bell saying “Carne Steak.” (hint: “carne” means meat in Spanish.) Time for the Packers to check their receipts to see if the warranty has expired on this lemon of a purchase.
Aaron Rodgers played well. Sometimes. He also was left to run for his life. Sometimes. He made some bad decisions. Sometimes. All told, he got the Pack to a win.
On the other sideline – Michael Vick did something I didn’t think he’d be able to do anymore: make the opposing team look panicked. Yeah, he’s still got a strong arm, one that he uses to make molasses-like deliveries of the ball, and his decisions are sometimes suspect. But there is just no answer for his ability to run. It’s almost like I was praying with each play from scrimmage that he’d forget how fast he was, because Jesus Harold Christ, he seems to still have a gear that nobody else has. Andy Reid has a bona fide quarterback controversy on his hands now.
In a scheduling snafu, the Packers get their first of two bye weeks next week, at home against the Buffalo Bills. McCarthy plans to give all starters a rest until week 3.
