Since we last visited the bosses of Cheeseville, the Pack has dropped two games AND resigned Aaron Rodgers through 2014. This has to be one of the most baffling moves of the reign of Thompson and McCarthy. On one hand, they draft Brian Brohm in the second round, and now, before the halfway mark of his first season, the ink Rodgers to a massive deal, despite only being one game over .500 at the time. I realize that there is some cap advantage to doing this deal before the end of this season, but ultimately, it makes the Packers brain trust seem eerily similar to Ferris Bueller’s pal Cameron of whom Ferris said,
“Cameron has never been in love. At least, nobody’s ever been in love with him. If things don’t change for him, he’s gonna marry the first girl he lays, and she’s gonna treat him like s*** because she will have given him what he has built up in his mind as the end all be all of human existence. She won’t respect him, because you can’t respect somebody who kisses your ass. It just doesn’t work.”
Thompson and McCarthy jumped into bed with Rodgers too soon, and now they married him. Since then, the Pack has dropped two games including losing to the Vikings in a game in which Rodgers couldn’t win despite a defensive and special teams score.
Oh, and Brett Favre? He’s been uneven but the Jets are 6-3 and looking to claim a division title if they can beat the Pats tonight.
This week, it seems that the collective MMTTB IQ is about on par with a kid who would steal his dad’s vintage Ferrari. Let’s place them at about 110, but with a low self-esteem that makes them do really stupid stuff.

CHFF thinks the Colts are rolling
Mike Tanier had a great line today:
Texans at Colts: Sage Rosenfels wants to redeem himself for his fourth-quarter fumble against the Colts in Week 5. And his other fourth-quarter fumble in Week 5. And his fourth-quarter interception in Week 5. And the interception he threw in the red zone at the end of the third quarter against the Vikings. And all of the passes he threw right into Ray Lewis’ chest last week. And … well, he’d like a mulligan for all of 2008, if that could be arranged. Colts.
The Sports guy is back. Honestly, he’s been pretty weak for a while now, but I laughed out loud 5 times reading this column. His platform for Czar of Sports is flawless. Pieces like this are why people bothered to read him in the first place. He still seems to act like he wants to get fired, but I’ll hand it to him…he was on his game today.
