Bye Week Bonanza

Whew…crazy times. Between work and producing this series (more info available on that at http://www.film-local.com–perhaps I will write about it here someday?), I am definitely longing for the days of un/under-employment. Not permanently, of course, but…if I could be unemployed again for a week, that would be fun. But…I guess normal people call that vacation, huh?

Anyway, since the Packers are on a bye this week, without a game to watch I had time to post the drawings from the last few games. See, I haven’t totally abandoned you all–it’s just that scanning hand drawn pictures into my computer is a pain and it takes forever. But now that it’s done, enjoy! They were all wins too, so that’s a plus.

Week 7: St Louis Rams
WIN 30-20

We were suffering from a ragged defensive line even then…

Catches, runs, touchdowns by a matter of inches…I really hope Jordy comes back to us strong, and soon.

Props to Trumaine Johnson’s epic Flying Eagle attempt to stop an onside kick. The Packers retained possession and Johnson was taken off the field injured, but still…epic.

Week 8: Jacksonville Jaguars
WIN 24-15

This one I actually didn’t draw–I was benched, due to extreme dizziness and complete exhaustion. You know you’re tired when you can’t even bring yourself to lift your head and watch television. Luckily, I was informed after the fact that there weren’t many draw-worthy events anyway.

Week 9: Arizona Cardinals
WIN 31-17

Is it me, or did it seem like they’d done something…strange to the ball for this game?

Rodger’s playing the game like his life depends on it. What did he end with–like 40 driving yards?

The second quarter was a little bit of a clown show–lots of drops and trips. Luckily, they managed to knock that off before it did any serious damage this time.

Johnson’s octopus-like skills bring the Packers up 21-7. I watched that catch a half dozen times, and I still don’t quite know how he came up with that one.

No one gets away with a penalty on Lang’ s watch. NO ONE!!

So here we are, with a record of 6-3 and a lot of injured starters. That’s a pretty scary place to start from as we begin a series of division games, not to mention facing off against the Super Bowl Champs as our regular season wraps up. Will we make the playoffs yet? At this point, I honestly can’t say–I’m hopeful, but wary, and neither outcome would really be a surprise. One thing I can say is that the Packers need to get their injuries sorted out right quick–it sucks to lose when you’re at your best, but losing because half your team is out injured is even harder to watch.
