    This Packers performance is not filling me with confidence at all. We look really shaky, giving away 10 yards nearly every rushing attempt against the worst rushing team last year.

    Edit - 3 sacks in the 1st quarter! WTF! O-Line's ****!

    It's preseason man. heck, my Giants got whooped by Carolina in the first game...with a rookie QB! Same thing happened with the Eagles (awesome 1st game, ****ty 2nd game) and Steelers (****ty 1st game, good 2nd game).

    This holdout sucked because it affects my fantasy football!!

    It was a beautiful tackle though. Came out of nowhere and let out the anger of a **** game all over Polamalu's ankles.
    I think it was about the worst executed tackle in the history of contact sports.

    He was lucky not to have his neck broken. Appalling tackle.

    It was a dreadful tackle, but it didn't look too dangerous for Vick. He hit him with the top of his back and his head was about at Polamalu's stomach. It looked more dangerous for Polamalu and his knees.

    On Madden I once made Peyton Manning throw an interception and then cause a fumble by tackling so hard, does that count?

    I don't see anything wrong with it-bit dangerious but a good hit and, IMO, not illegal...

    If Polamalu had seen him he'd have dodged him with no problem, anyone would've.

    Of course-he could have leapt it but you can say that about most 'big' tackles-generally they are dodgable because of the momentum people bring into them. As it was Polamalu didn't and Vick made a good hit.

    Most big tackles are not technically good tackles, a lot of tackles in the NFL are technically very bad tackles. Vick's was particularly bad, that Polamalu wasn't looking is circumstancial.
