Normally, I wouldn’t touch a 4-2 team for this feature. After all, I prefer to look into the morass of human misery & mine the painful-est rocks. But nothing was more painful on a fan base last weekend than this:

AND THUS THE HAWT TAEKS WERE BORN!


It started so innocently that Sunday morning,

So innocently, in fact, that the #MAGA crowd wasn’t even bothered. Just actual fans:

But as quickly as the game started, the collapse began.

What started as fear,

turned to realization as the news got worse,

then worser,

and, finally, worstest.


Eventually, reality set in as the news became official.

Packers fans turned to crying gifs, because words either failed them or just couldn’t express their level of despair. Based on my survey, it seems every twit Packers fan who tweets has one of these gifs on reserve for immediate use:

  

 

Of course, because the messiah got hurt meant there was no love for his injured disciples. In fact, that resulted in a widening of the blame.


Finally, as the game wound to its inevitable conclusion, most fans entered the fifth stage – acceptance.


Fans were nice enough to the kid,

but were more than ready to let the Beav have it.

Shockingly, or not – if you believe that leadership should be accountable, this is where the armchair patriots of the #MAGA crowd finally reared their obsequious head.

And, of course, there always has to be that one jackass that has to take things just a little too far.

GO FUCK YOURSELF!


Then, when you don’t think it can get any more pathetic/worse,

Aaron Rodgers is possibly out for the rest of the season but there’s a Wisconsin-born QB who should be on our team! Lets makes sure the organization know we support Kaepernick to the Packers!

someone goes and starts a change.org petition, the last vestige of the truly desperate, because the coach & team “won’t listen to their fans”. Above is the actual language; as of Tuesday afternoon, they were up to 12,000 “signatures”.

The Packers response?

At least one guy had his head on straight,


Boneddigion a boneddigesau, your Green Bay Packers “Great QB Twitter Meltdown of 2017”.

[…] one match last weekend that demanded I cover it despite my absence, for it involves many themes I previously covered in an earlier column, only the fanbase is much louder, much vulgarier, and – as Big Daddy […]

Did the Packers even watch Hundley when he played at UCLA? I remember him being shitty. I’m surprised he’s in the NFL.

To quote thousands of people I heard around me growing up, Fuck the Packers

The only good thing about today is Rooney didn’t even make the bench.

Christopher Eztel seems like a calm, reasonable individual, with rational insight.

To be honest, if Kaep even cost the NFL one cent he should be canonized as a motherfucking saint.

I mean, I think he’d have to play for them first, but sure.

His rationale is… bad. But I agree that Kaep will never play in the NFL again.

For all the tough talk, there is an amazing lack of testicles in the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

For those bettors out there, I said “Goddamn it” out loud at Vitamin G’s reply to the fourth Officia tweet.

FS1, muthafuckas. Live it, learn it, love it. Come on, you Blues!!

Who in Christ’s name is Jerod Evans? How was there not more HOT TAEK racism towards Hundley hisself? Maybe Shogun Marcus was right to defend his peoples, this overall seemed purty tame to me.

I am gonna turn this into Everton/Lyon rivebrog, just a heads-up.

nomonkeyfun

These were much more measured than I thought, or maybe delusional is the word I’m looking for.

I really can’t wait to see these after a week of Hundley as the starting QB.

I think Yeahright slipped into that twitter feed.

Gotta admit, the “flat tire after totaling the car” comment is pretty fucking funny.
