Packers and Beer.
The Packers got destroyed on Sunday night. It really wasn’t much of a game from about the middle of the second quarter on.
I’m not used to the Packers getting blown out, so I didn’t know how to react. My mind started wandering in the second half.
Instead of panicking or trying to figure out why my favorite football team just laid an egg on national TV, I started thinking about which Packers players reminded me of certain types of beer.
I like beer. I like the Packers. Thinking about beer and the Packers is a lot more fun than being depressed about the Packers losing to the Giants.
Here are my random thoughts on which Packers (and some non-Packers) remind me of certain types of beer. If you also want to take your mind off of Sunday night, use the comments section to chime in with some of your own comparisons.

The Green Bay Packers got beat fair and square Sunday night against the New York Giants. The Giants were just the better team in every aspect and they really brought to light some of the areas the Packers are lacking because of injuries to star players.
The first thing is obviously the offensive line. Aaron Rodgers was sacked five times Sunday night and was constantly getting...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Greg Jennings this week. Clay Matthews next week. Charles Woodson and Cedric Benson in two weeks. If all four Packers stars can reach those projected return dates, Sunday's 38-10 loss to the New York Giants will become a game that won't be representative of the rest of this season.
Very little about Green Bay's most recent effort indicated that the...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the Green Bay Packers have heard the comparisons between this season and their run to the Super Bowl title in 2010 in regard to the way the injuries have piled up.
Rodgers, the league's highest-rated quarterback this season, has been through this before. The media reminds him of that, but he calls this a "different team...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Less than 24 hours following the beatdown that the New York Giants handed to the Packers, defensive coordinator Dom Capers, special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum and offensive coordinator Tom Clements addressed specific issues from the 38-10 loss.
Three question-and-answer highlights from each coordinator:

In a surprise move of the 2012 NFL season, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has finally come to terms with his own body and made a sports-media shattering announcement. He has finally come out of the blanket and revealed himself to be a 5 year old boy, which actually explains a whole lot.
"I just felt it was time," he said while eating a Pop Tart at a recent...
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said wide receiver Greg Jennings will fully practice this week and play Sunday as he recovers from a torn abdomen muscle. McCarthy told reporters after Sunday night's 38-10 loss to the New York Giants that Jennings was close to playing the game, but was held out as a precautionary measure. Jennings has not played since Sept. 30. The...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers coach Mike McCarthy is hoping that Sunday's 38-10 loss to the New York Giants was just one bad game, because he has no plans to do anything differently in preparation this week.
"We're not going to change the way we go about our business," McCarthy said in his Tuesday press conference. "Urgency, awareness is obviously heightened...
The injury-plagued Packers are getting back one of their big guns, Pro Bowl receiver Greg Jennings. Meanwhile, coach Mike McCarthy said he'd "probably have some information" on Wednesday about injured running back Cedric Benson.
The Green Bay Packers had better hope they don't see the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants again anytime soon.
The Packers' five-game winning streak came to an embarrassing end as Eli Manning threw three touchdowns and Giants routed Green Bay 38-10 in a nationally televised game Sunday night.
Coming on the heels of last season's loss in the NFL semifinal...
The Packers have made the decision to put Derek Sherrod on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, which ends his season. Sherrod hasn't appeared in a regular season or preseason game since breaking his leg last season against the Kansas City Chiefs, and his recovery from that injury has gone much slower than expected.
Mike McCarthy also spoke on Tuesday about running...
The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers are currently fighting for first place in the NFC North division, but we must not let that get in the way of the real contest facing the teams this month.
Which of the teams’ star quarterbacks rocks the better Movember mustache?
Let’s take a look at the competing ‘staches and find out.
Jay Cutler’s Eff You ‘Stache
We love that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers can get into the spirit of Movember and rock a powerful mustache for the whole world to see when he took on the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football. What we didn’t expect was for Rodgers to give the viewing audience at home a little taste of Zoolander’s famous Blue Steel.
Of course Movember is when you will see men wear awkward...
With Eli Manning throwing three touchdown passes and Aaron Rodgers getting sacked five times, the Giants throttled the Packers 38-10 on Sunday night. The loss snapped Green Bay's five-game winning streak.
If Sunday night's loss to the Giants felt odd, it's because the Packers almost always been within one score in their losses with Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy. We scour the history to provide some context.
