For The Packers To Win….

Posted in Bill's Blog
USATSI_9644020_168381909_lowresThe Packers quarterback likes to play in domes, we all know that, but the Georgia Dome has been especially comfortable to him: Aaron Rodgers’ passer rating in his 4 career games at the Georgia Dome:
Spectacular… better believe it. Rodgers will have to put up Supermanesque numbers for the Packers to walk away with the NFC Championship this coming Sunday. What kind of numbers you may ask?
29 of 42, 335 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs, 69.0 Comp % and a QB Rating of 116.7 The Packers defense, on the other hand, won’t be able to stop the Falcons MVP, Matt Ryan, but they must slow him down and garner at least 1 turnover and 5 additional stops within the 4 quarter confines of the game.… Read the rest

Will The Packers Win In The ATL

Posted in Bill's Blog
USATSI_9812648_168381909_lowresYou have the deed to your house, in your hand.   You have to bet it on one team; the Green Bay Packers or the Atlanta Falcons.  Who are you betting on? The red hot Aaron Rodgers?  The likely league MVP? Here’s my logic and you tell me what you would do. Rodgers is on fire.  Ryan is playing even better.
Rodgers has been there, done that.  Ryan has faltered in the post-season numerous times before.
If you would consider these 2 players as the best QB’s in the NFC right now, then in essence they would cancel each other out correct?… Read the rest

Packers Over Cowboys; It’s Not Hopeless

Posted in Bill's Blog
USATSI_9798080_168381909_lowresHow will the Packers beat the Cowboys? If Aaron Rodgers is Aaron Rodgers, AKA Superman, from the very first snap.  If Rodgers and the Nelsonless offense can put up a quick score, or two, and make Dak Prescott think that he must match the future hall of famer throw for throw, score for score.  If the pressure of his first NFL playoff game weighs heavy on the shoulders of the Cowboys signal caller thus making a mistake or two leading to turnovers. If Dom Capers and his bubble gum and bailing wire defense can get 5 to 6 stops.  If Clay Matthews can muster something more consistent when it comes to quarterback pressure. … Read the rest

NBA Reality

Posted in Bill's Blog
Dec 20, 2016; Milwaukee, WI, USA; Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) reaches for a rebound against Milwaukee Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon (13) and forward Jabari Parker (12) in the third quarter at BMO Harris Bradley Center. Mandatory Credit: Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports First let me say that I wish the NBA released actual attendance figures rather than “paid” and “freebie” tickets supplied. Secondly, the Bucks played the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center and the crowd, while loud and into the game, wasn’t what you thought it would be.  A little disappointing. Why lower than expected attendance? Some say it’s the new owner’s politics.
Some say it’s the protests.
Some blame the price of NBA tickets.
Some blame the parking situation in Milwaukee.
Some blame the weather.
Some blame the Christmas Season. Here’s the best reason I can come up with; The Bucks are good and growing but they’re not contenders.… Read the rest

Is Aaron Rodgers “Back”

Posted in Bill's Blog
The start of the Packers season was a failure, admit it.  Not only were they losing games but the offense was anemic.
Recently, the Packers offense has come to life and that’s due in large part to the look and play of their quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.
Over the last 6 games, Rodgers numbers are dramatically better:
242 att. for 161 comp.  66.5%
16 TDs vs 3 INTs
1,787 yards
7.4 YDS Per Pass Att.
and a 105.2 QB Rating Is Rodgers “back”?  While the numbers are encouraging, Rodgers will need a semblance of a defense and a little outside help for this team to be vaulted into the post-season.… Read the rest
