Playoffs? What playoffs? !!!

Now what will we do for aggravation?

The indentured servants here at the Stately Manor are contemplating futile gestures after the Packers’ unceremonious loss to Detroit last night. The Lions beat us twice this year, and convincingly each time. Say it with me, Pilgrims: The 8-9 Packers are not as good as the 9-8 Detroit Lions! We had everything to play for on our own frozen tundra while their season was over no matter what. We still found a way to lose.

That’s the lesson team sports teaches: be gracious in victory; in defeat — angry, bitter and vindictive.

Speaking of Quay Walker. He is the bonehead who shoved the visiting team’s medical staff trying to attend to an injured Detroit player. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?! Less than a week after football fans were so moved by the near death of Damar Hamlin during a primetime Monday game that they prayed to the Deity on the field and in the TV studio, live and in color! This is the second time Walker has been ejected in this, his first season in the pros. The first occurrence was when this empty helmet whacked an assistant coach. On the sidelines. For the Bills!

Don’t care if Walker was a first-round pick. He is a first-class prick. Trade his ass for whatever diminished value the market will bear. The Raiders will probably snap him up.

Doesn’t it look like Aaron Rodgers is done with football? Walking off Lambeau Field arm in arm with his pal, Randall Cobb, he glanced up one last time at the fans cheering him and allowed himself a small wave before entering the tunnel to the locker room. For the last time? Don’t see him playing for another team. Ol’ Sparky (the you know what) foresees a cable TV talk show in which he will be as iconoclastic as Jack Paar once was.

Since 1992 — when Dan Quayle was still a heartbeat away — Packer fans have been blessed with two hall of fame quarterbacks, starting with Brett Favre, of course. In those 31 seasons, don’t you think the Pack should have claimed more than two Super Bowl Lombardi trophies? We could say “Wait ’til next year,” but we fear the reaper.

Impertinent questions: 

• If Capitol police held the door open for Tr•mp loyalists (as Tucker Carlson alleged again last week), why did Ashli Babbitt have such a hard time getting in?

• Send Prince Harry a new dog dish to replace the one his brother pushed him onto. One not made of fragile Wedgwood china that breaks upon impact with royal noggins. Also send tiny violin.

• We hear that Jair Bolsonaro told his minions to march “pacificamente e patrioticamente” before sacking Brazil’s legislature and supreme court.

• Choosing the leader of the House of Representatives was never that difficult when George Santos was Speaker.

• Who sent Ray Epps to Brazil?

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Lions coach Dan Campbell is coach of the year for getting his team up when it had nothing but pride to play for — like Republicans here in Madison WI.

What will A-Rod do next year?

    Needs another mvp award, another $200,000,000 contract, that will make sure they win….next year. Let’s also plaster his face (rodgers) on every billboard in the state for another 200 million. I wish I could have placed a bet that his usual interception was coming, I would win the mega millions lottery. Get rid of RODGERS! It’s 5 yrs past due!!!.

    I think the Capitol may have more than one door…

    The other way to frame the question is if Ashli Babbitt got shot, why weren’t all the invaders shot?

      Because not all of them were as slow learners as Ashli Babbitt.

        Good thing Ashli Babbitt wasn’t a person of color or there would have been a different outcome. Her mother was arrested for protesting ( remember that pesky 1st Amendment) her daughters death. She will probably get 5 years for insurrection.

    Glass half full?

    At least we’re not the midgets of the midway or one of their d!p$#!t fans!

    JUST IN: After losing ten (10) games in a row (a record for the 100 + year-old franchise) to end a hilariously woebegone season featuring (HEH!) 14 losses and a dismal .176 winning percentage, the entire roster of the laughably inept chicago Bi-Polar bares has entered the Transfer Portal.

    Said one (on condition of anonymity) “Heck, most of us would rather play gratis for the DIII The Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary than for this Five Alarm Dumpster Fire.

    Next up? They’ll probably trade away their 1st overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft for
    Rex Grossman…or Jeff Boy George; both still have some mileage left, am I right?

    Anywho, no 2nd rounder because it was traded to a saw-’em-coming-grinning-ear-to-ear Pittsburgh in yet another ruinous front office debacle.

    The team’s thinking about making next year’s catch-phrase: Win Never.

      I see the meds your doctor gave you after watching that terrible GB game finally kicked in for you. Using the old deflection trick you learned from tRump ain’t workin’ today chumpy. The Peckers stunk up the tundra and capped it off with that cowardly hit in the back on the Lion trainer. Even the ref’s gave up trying to win this game for Mr. Rogers.

    AR will most definitely will be traded to another team. Just like Russell Wilson, they both signed contracts that guaranteed that they would get dumped before the REALLY big bucks are paid. Packers, like the Seahawks, cannot afford the salary cap hit unless they dump the entire team. Has nothing to do with whether they would like him around next year. They just can’t afford him. So, he’ll get traded after June 1st.

    No matter which way you slice it, Football in WESconsin will be noticeably different this fall, all of a sudden and at once it seems it will be more so at Camp Randall.

    JUST IN: Bucky Brings In Third 4 Star Transfer QB

    Word’s out that something’s percolatin’ @1440 Monroe Street like never before, yet State Journal scribe Jim Polzin says tap the brakes.

    The Gotch says: Maybe tell Fickell-n-Air Raid Longo should take their foot off’n the gas to that there FERRARI.

    Just kidding; filling the air with the pigskin opens up the running game..

    Perhaps the coaching staff are davidblaska.com readers and noted the Bloggeur’s earlier suggestion that there’s no rule against having more than one QB on the field.

    If that’s the case, there’s no rule against having two (2)…three (3)…and beyond…?
