Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Commenter Stu presents: The Packers' Increasingly Lost Season -- Where are you, Li'l Aaron?

Posted by: Michael Rand under Professional football, Vikings Updated: December 12, 2013 - 2:42 PM

Born out of a series of Tweets by commenter @RandBallsStu, an idea by your humble proprietor and a sick thirst to rile up Packers fans for no good reason, we present, "The Increasingly Lost Season." In this series, which is now in its second year, Stu will give a brief recap of the Packers' misfortunes as they tumble back toward Randy Wright-esque putridity (even if that probably isn't true). Stu?


The Green Bay Packers finally remembered how to win a football game last Sunday, stealing a win from the equally wretched Atlanta Falcons thanks to the arm of Money Matt Flynn. It was Green Bay’s first win at Daunte’s House in nearly two months, and the team, with Money Matt leading the way, is finally showing signs of shaking off its post-Aaron Rodgers hangover.

Of course, there’s still a long, hard road ahead for this once-great franchise, and one hopes the pipe dream of the long-gone Rodgers leading the Pack to a playoff berth doesn’t distract Thompson the Great and Powerful from the full rebuild this crumbling mess he created so desperately needs. 

That said, with Money Matt likely at the helm this Sunday instead of the wee thespian, it’s fair to wonder if Green Bay can exploit the shaky pass defense of the Dallas Cowboys and keep their faint NFC North title hopes alive.  Josh McCown shredded the Dallas secondary on Monday night, and McCown’s no Money Matt.

Lest Packer partisans get too excited, though, one must remember that Tony Romo gets to go against the Packers’ defense, and the advanced statistical models indicate that this photo might be the truest visual representation of how Green Bay’s defense matches up. As if this wasn’t enough, we can only begin to speculate at what kind of Machiavellian scheming is going on at the practice facility, where Rodgers, snubbed by the Golden Globes, is likely taking it out on Money Matt, the coaching staff or anyone within pouting distance.

So, does Green Bay have what it takes to pull off the upset on Sunday? In an increasingly lost season, we’re sad to say that no, they can’t.
