FRIDAY MORNING IS prime time for some casual news reading, tweeting, and general Internet browsing, but you may have had some trouble accessing your usual sites and services this morning and throughout the day, from Spotify and Reddit to the New York Times and even good ol’ For that, you can thank a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) that took down a big chunk of the Internet for most of the Eastern seaboard.

This morning’s attack started around 7am and was aimed at Dyn, an Internet infrastructure company headquartered in New Hampshire. That first bout was resolved after about two hours; a second attack began just before noon. In both cases, traffic to Dyn’s Internet directory servers on the East Coast of the United States was stopped by a flood of malicious requests disrupting the system. Still ongoing, the situation is a definite reminder of the fragility of the web, and the power of the forces that aim to disrupt it.

Dyn offers Domain Name System (DNS) services, essentially acting as an address book for the Internet. DNS is a system that resolves the web addresses we see every day, like, into the IP addresses needed to find and connect with the right servers so browsers can deliver requested content, like the story you’re reading right now Click the LINK for more

GBP v chi - Pos/Neg

3 players with at least 10 receptions, and Jordy is not one of them.

That's a huge positive to me. He didn't lock on Jordy or the first option. He found the open guys. Still off on some throws, but he looked more like Aaron than Erin.

Final Thoughts

Sound FX: Mike Daniels

Just listened to a segment on Rich Eisen's show with Kurt Warner, who I think is one of the better offensive analysts out there, especially when discussing QB play.  His feeling was that Rodgers did not trust the Packers offense anymore, nor the receivers and is trying too hard to overcome that and make plays, thus holding the ball way too long instead of just letting it rip.  Warner said that the Packers offense is stagnant....little to no motion pre-snap.  

This is the one game when I first saw the schedule that worried me was this one.  UW has been better at Iowa recently but over the years they have really struggled there.  What worries me is that this is the ultimate let down game for Bucky.  Coming off a hard fought and emotional loss to O$U I am worried they will lose in this spot. 

ESPNs crappy preview:

I will admit that I have not seen Iowa play this year but they seem to kind of seem to really be up and down like crazy.

I am going with Bucky in this one in a low scoring game 16-13

Because it's football.

Because neither offense is as dysfunctional as the Packers'.

Because Blair Kiel is still cleaning up boxes of Riunite blown around by Hurricane Matthew.

**** the bares

We're moving  on to chitcago.

Thu night can't come soon enough.

Let me start with the play on the field has been average at best...but after going to the Lions & Dallas game I left asking what the heck happened to the Fans at Lambeau.   In both games the stadium lacked energy and there was little to no crowd noise.   When did we decide it was bad fan behavior to  stand-up and cheer your  a** off on a big third down, or when the opposing team was backed-up in the endzone?   On Dallas's 97 yard drive at the end of the 1st half the south end zone sat quietly while Dak changed a play.   The special teams unit would run down the field on a touchback and beg the fans to get into the game, with no luck.

We can complain about the play on the field, Rodgers needs to be better, Receivers need to get separation, DBs are injured, etc.  However, the fans need to be accountable too....If you are at Lambeau you need to make a difference, be loud, pick the team-up - there is no reason Lambeau can't be the loudest outdoor stadium....we just need to stop showing up for games and expecting the team to perform.

The play on the field has been bad and the Atmosphere in the stadium has been just as bad.  The second one is on us, we too need to be better!
