    Can we lay it to rest of the non challenge on Tony G's catch?

    I'd like to agree. But (nope don't need to go further.)

    Dang, I really want to see a nice healthy Packers team. Though on the flipside with as many injuries we have had, with as many wins as we have mustered and our only losses have been by less than 4 points, you have to give credit to the whole Packers team. And be glad that we have Aaron Rodgers as our Qb, he threw a great show the other day, and YAY Starks may finally be able to play. Lets hope he has a run game. (Yes its a dream, but imagine if Starks comes in and can fill in the role of RB, its a long shot but stranger things have happened in the NFL)

    Yes, time to stop talking about the challenge, or lack thereof, on the Tony G play. It was a damned if you do, damned if you don't moment. Nothing more needs to be said.

    RE: Starks, I can think of two reasons off the top of my head as to why you don't rush a guy back from injury right away: Shawne Merriman and Vincent Jackson. One is on IR, another is sidelined at least a couple weeks due to injury.

    Starks will get an opportunity, but if he so much as misses a block, he's gonna be benched. Grant had a full training camp and pre-season to have contact and to learn the playbook and pick up the blocking. Starks has had 6 weeks.

    Sucks about Chillar, but is life for the Packers this season.

    Jesus H Christ. I never seen a Packer team let alone any other team get so many players on IR before.

    What did we do to piss Karma off this season.

    It makes me wonder.... why our guys are so soft.
    Chillar is a 250-pound linebacker.
    The guy he ran into was the Sam Shields of their team.... who should come out of a collision hurt between the 2 guys?

    Well it should be the little guy, but for our team, it's the bigger guy.

    Maybe it's something we need to weed out now, else it affects our potentially big season next year too.

    I find it hard to believe the Packers staff would be that stupid. I'm sure our guys have been conditioned and trained by the best they have available. I don't think it's lack of drive on the player's part either. These guys have shown more heart than any team I've seen this year to overcome all those injuries. I would think it is bad luck. Sometimes you just get seasons like this and it's all we can do to keep our heads above water. I think the team has done a tremendous job this year with what they had to work with.

    From preseason till now with the injuries they are many,but I must say the guys that wait their turn are playing very well,and I think they deserve a hand because if they didn't our wins may have been less.

    You're not missing anything, that's just the way it is here. It doesn't matter who it is, so long as they're not on our active roster, they're an upgrade over almost anyone we have. This will be especially true after the season ends and free agency opens up.

    Is Chillar turning into another John "hangnail" Michaels? I mean I like the guy, and he plays well, he is just always hurt!

    Optimism over the unknown. He could be terrible, he could be the next Walter Payton. Nobody really knows, and I think that makes people want to see him.
