    I know it is only week one so I'll cut him a little slack, but will someone please tell me who TT brought in that contributed tody.

    Favre, Green, Driver contributed on offense. Barnett and Kampman were the only ones on defense that showed up.

    Did any of TT's "Packer people" show up today?

    Brett I think was terrible late in the game. I hate to say this, but I'm doubting his decision making is where it needs to be.

    I'm hearing crickets. C'mon all you TT apologists, give me something to hang my hat on. Seriously, I wanna hear something good that came from one of his draft picks or FA signings.

    I thought Pickett played ok and the run D looked a little improved. I think they were caught off guard to the fact that Chicago came out airing it out. I think that's more a shot at the coaches than the players on the field. No adjustments seemed to be made.

    The entire team played awful. The only guys I'd really say did anything were Ahman Green and Aaron Kampman.

    Ahman Green, Aaron Kampman, Brett Favre, Ryan Pickett... All guys TT brought back, so they are now TTs guys.

    so really TT's guys were the only ones to contribute at all.

    Moll and Spitz contributed heavily to Ahman Green's 100+ yard game. No penalties on the young guys.

    I thought they did alright run blocking but were a little shaky pass blocking.

    Believe it or not...I'm not too upset about our offense yet. I am very concerned about our defense though. I'm trying not to be too hard on TT but this is the side of the ball that he really concentrated on. If you go back and look at the posts, I always thought the Pickett signing was a good one and the Manuel signing was a waste. After week one it looks that way. Thank God there are 16 weeks. Now it is time for the coaches to make adjustments.

    Welcome to the forum. This website has a staff that makes that determination. Hopefully they are more accurate than yourself.

    IP Check reveals?? ;)




    Brett's human. He showed it late in the game. He all but admitted to it in his press conference after the game.

    on to the Saints for a better result!!

    Lets break this game down a little. Manuel bit on the first drive and gave up the big play, 7 points. We gave up punt return for seven points. The D held on 4 entrances in the red zone. If the offense could have gotten anything rolling, we may have been in this game.

    Favre looked a little off target on a lot of throws today, but he is always in sync with Driver. Green looked great, and should get 1300 yards this year. Kampmann. Barnett and Collins played well.

    I've posted numerous times that I didn't expect the offense to start clicking until mid season. What I didn't expect was for our near pro bowler tackle bookends to look like dog sh^t.

    Let's face the Bears have high draft choices that are entering their 3-4-5th years in the league. They should be on the top of their game. We have a lot of work to do. But lets do ourselves a favor and judge this team by how we play the Bears towards the end of the year.

    yep......Clifton's been sick this week but he and Tausch were really off today. Do they really fit this new scheme?

    Thompson has concentrated on bringing in a lot of young guys, and I wasn't expecting a whole lot from them yet. As for the vets, Pickett looked okay, but Manuel made a rookie mistake early that hopefully was just a product of rust. Woodson was unimpressive in coverage, but looked good returning punts. Not that that makes up for it.

    I have never thought the team would be much good this year, especially early in the season.

    your right depack, TT did put his emphasis on the D and they looked terrible. especially the pass defense. however i have no idea what to do about it now. we can only hope for a big improvment next week and hope we make it through this season

    I honestly think I lost a couple of I.Q. points just reading this stunning piece of brilliance. :roll:

    BTW: Care to explain how you figure TT "brought back" Favre? He never announced his retirement and has been under contract TT's entire tenure.

    Right Anubis. Brett never left. I don't understand the 'came back' bit.

    pickett was brought in by TT. Green and Kampman could easily be playing somewhere else this year. TT brought them back. Brett was going to retire.... TT, MM, Phil Simms convinced him enough that he should stay.

    Are you kidding me? Suppose TT brought all these guys in, which he did not, besides Pickett. Now lets combine that with the other guys TT brought in and you have 26-0 Bears. Boy, TT's a GENUIS!


    My point exactly, THank You.

    Technically packnic, Andrew Brandt is the one who signed off ont eh contracts, negotiated them, and read them over. For Green, Kampman, Favre, and Pickett.

    Well, considering the fact that the players that were here before TT came to Green Bay are the established veterans on the team and the guys that TT brought in are mostly rookies and 2nd year players, I'm not surprised at all that the pre-TT players looked better than the TT players. Congratulations, DePack.

    Granted, Woodson and Manuel sucked and I didn't even notice Pickett. So you're absolutely right DePack, but that's a pretty hollow victory.

    One out of four. You're doing well so far...

    These players were not "brought back" by TT. They were here before he became GM and never left. Just because a player decides to resign with a team because they are FA eligible does not mean they left and came back. IIRC, neither of these players even shopped the FA prior to resigning, so it wasn't like TT matched an offer to retain them.

    You mean the Phil Simms radio interview Brett heard convinced him not to retire. Which, once again, has absolutely nothing to do with TT.

    Quit pretending TT walks on water. It really is tiresome.
