We, like many others around the country are great fans of the Green Bay Packers. As you well know, no matter where you go in this USA, you’ll always find Packer Fans gathering to watch the Pack play. The Green Bay Packers, unlike most teams, have a die hard following of fans everywhere. You have found us in the Great Northwest, as we celebrate our 23rd year together.
Each Game Day during football season, you can find us at our Packer bar, The Mustard Seed Grill & Pub in Newport Hills, WA with our fellow Packer Backers rooting for the team. We invite you to come on by and have a great time with the best Packer Fans in Washington!! You’ll see how much we have! Check out our Club links below to see photos and videos of our group on game days! Please check us out on Facebook and sign our Guestbook. Until then, thanks for visiting and GO PACK GO!!
What a great turnout yesterday at the Mustard Seed! So the final numbers are in for the Northwest Harvest food drive for last Sunday! We brought in nearly 500 lbs of food. So congrats to the Raider fan club for winning the CHALLENGE! But also congrats to all of you that have participated in our FOOD DRIVE on Nov. 17th and this year.
In addition to the 500 lbs of food for the Nov. 17th challenge, we have donated several hundreds of pounds of food this year to Northwest Harvest. In the end the people in need win. Isn’t it great how football fans come together to do something awesome? Isn’t it great being a Packer Fan?
All I have to say is GO PACK and Have a Great Thanksgiving everyone!
Northwest Packer Backers Thanksgiving Donation to Annie’s Kitchen!
Hey Packer fans and club members….. I have done a lot of thinking today, read a lot today and here is what I come up with…. Things are not as nearly bad as some would think it is… we have been without the following starters and backups for multiple games, Burnett, Matthews, Perry, B. Jones, Hayward, Francois, Bulaga, Harris, J. Jones, Cobb, Finley, Lacy, Kuhn, Bush, Starks, Taylor and Van Roten. We went on a 4 game win streak with all of these injuries. I am of the opinion that if we got into the end zone for a touchdown on both drives that were inside the 5 we would have won that game. Sure it sucks that Rodgers fractured his collarbone and that has an effect on the game, but you know what we were not out of the game by any means. It wasn’t like the Bears ran away with the game? NO! We were still in it to the end. Wallace did not have any time to sync with the receivers during the week as McCown had 2 weeks, let me say that again 2 weeks to prepare for the Pack and with the players we were missing on offense and defense including Rodgers, playing against our backups they still only won by 7 points. Also most of you did not know that TJ Lang left the game early in the third quarter. That made a huge difference in the second half. Chicago blitzed and stunted to that side and Barclay and Newhouse did not handle the stunts properly. In fact it was very poor play by both of those lineman which led to the pressure on Wallace.
Let’s look at the next 3 opponents of the Packers. They will face Eagles @ home, then @ the Giants and then @ home against the Vikings. The Pack has the possibility of winning all 3 of those games. The Packers are the second best rushing team in the NFL at 148.8 yards a game and only trail S.F. by 5 yards for first. Now lets think about that. Green Bay has the second best rushing game in the NFL. Lacy and Starks average 4.4 and 6 yards per carry. McCarthy will have a full week to prepare Wallace or whoever else (my money is on Wallace). You will see a better prepared QB and a better game plan based on who we have available. The time now is not for doom and gloom. This is the time to see who steps up and performs. This is not your Packers of the 70′s or 80′s, this is the Packers era where we have Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy to lead this team. It is only 3 years ago that we had this many injuries and won the Super Bowl. Remember the statistic that was provided during the Viking game, 50 of 53 players have only played for the Packers! Now lets put up our chins and look forward to the new run game we have to assist us to win games while our MVP QB gets healthy! For those who have not endured the 70′s or 80′s years, please go read about it and you may appreciate these times for the Packers!! I guess that is all that I have to say for now except for GO PACK GO!!!
Packer vs. Bears, does it get any better? It is the oldest rivalry in the NFL. Boy, I am sure glad that I am a Packer fan and being able to cheer on the PACK!! But you know what? THE BEARS STILL SUCK! That pretty much sums it up, don’t you agree? I am sure happy our Packers are getting healthier, but even with them getting healthier; the team has had many players step up and perform. Who would have thought that the performance on defense would be this good, even with Clay Matthews, Nick Perry and Brad Jones out? Well let’s GO PACK and beat these Bears…. GO PACK GO!!
What a game by the Pack last week against the Ravens. Players stepped up on defense and offense. I look forward to that trend continuing this week when the Packers play the Browns at Lambeau Field. It was pretty amazing seeing the Packer defense keep the Ravens to 44 yards rushing. Several players stepped up on defense and the running game is now getting more consistent every week. Did you know that the Packers average over 140 yards per game! Even when we get our receivers back it will open up the passing game even more. I was reviewing some information about the Packer’s remaining schedule and this is what I found.
“The Packers would appear to have the best balance of offense and defense. Obviously, Aaron Rodgers is still a great player and the best quarterback in the division. But have you seen what Green Bay is doing on the ground? The Packers are third in the NFL in rushing and fifth in average gain. The Packers’ defense is third in the league against the run and appears to be getting better every week. On the injury front, the Packers have been hit harder, losing Bryan Bulaga for the year and Clay Matthews and Randall Cobb for extended periods, but they haven’t missed a beat yet. Green Bay has quality wins over Detroit and Baltimore and its losses came against the 49ers and Bengals. They only have three games left against winning teams (Detroit and the Bears twice.)”
The game will not be shown locally over the airwaves but will be shown here at the Mustard Seed Grill & Pub! Here also is a reminder that we are continuing our Food Drive effort with Northwest Harvest. As many of you know, Ken here at the Mustard Seed Grill & Pub has joined us in this food drive. If anyone has any questions about the food drive please email us. See you this Sunday! GO PACK!
Well we made it thru another bye week for our Packers; gosh that was too long! This past weekend we had some activities for the Northwest Packer Backers. On Saturday we had a group about 25 participate in volunteering at Northwest Harvest’s distribution center. We have a few pictures posted on our Facebook page to see. Prior to the volunteer work we tailgated in the rain and had some brats and sauerkraut. We did have some cover so we did not get drenched, even though it was down pouring.
The volunteer work we performed was bagging and boxing frozen fresh green beans. The Northwest Packer Backers assisted in bagging and boxing a total of 4,050 pounds of green beans. This in turn feeds over 3,300 people. I just would like to say “Thank you!” to those who did brave the weather and come out to volunteer. This was extremely fun, enjoyable and rewarding.
Our first in-season Sponsor meeting was held on Sunday at the Mustard Seed. We had group come out again braving the rainy weather. We were hoping that while we were at the Mustard Seed our presence would help the Texans win. But to no avail did that happen.
There are several cool and fun stuff in store for the upcoming season for the Northwest Packer Backers at the Mustard Seed. We look forward to you all joining us at the Seed. Now it is time for us to get back on track and beat these Lions.
We had a great turnout last Sunday! Although the Packers lost I saw a lot of positive things with this team. The rookie tackles played ok and were not a big liability. They did give Aaron some decent time in the pocket and these tackles can only get better. I am excited about our first home opener of the 2013 with the new seating in the South Endzone at Lambeau Field! With the seating capacity now at 80,750; Lambeau Field should be much louder. I for one am looking forward to it.
Reminder Announcement – Each year it seems to be more difficult for all charities, in particular, food banks. The Northwest Packer Backers and the Mustard Seed would like to take this opportunity to help our local communities as much as possible by hosting a food drive for Northwest Harvest throughout the 2013 football season. Boxes have already been set up at the Mustard Seed. On game day, please bring in any non-perishable items and place in one of the box. Donations are voluntary, but would be most appreciated.
We continue to have some really cool surprises for this 2nd game of the football season, with more coming in the upcoming season. For those who decide to become a club sponsor/club member we will be conducting a drawing on December 8th to give a Special Packer item! To find out what it is, please come join us at the Mustard Seed! We look forward to seeing you this Sunday and helping us cheering on the Pack to victory and having a great time!
It is time to get back to football! It has taken way to long for the season to begin, hasn’t it? We are just a little over 48 hours away from kickoff! As we are celebrating our 23rd year together and our 13th year at the Mustard Seed Grill and Pub, there have been some new improvements to the Mustard Seed since last off season and we think you all will really enjoy them. As we look forward to the new football season for the NWPB there are some awesome things for the upcoming season! Please check the Game Day newsletter and the updates to the NWPB website.
This Sunday is an afternoon game against the San Francisco 49ers with a 1:25pm kickoff. We are going to start the season off with a great test and see how far this team has grown from last year. With that said, I will be at the Mustard Seed early so that we can get things rolling prior to kickoff. We will have some cool surprises for this 1st game of the year, with more coming in the upcoming season. We are truly excited in kicking off our 23rd year together and look forward to helping charities as we have done for the last 22 years. We look forward to seeing you this Sunday and helping us kick off the season and having a great time. The quest for the Lombardi trophy begins Sunday!
