    Playing a poor offense like the Bears can pad your defensive stats.

    Packer defense is league's:

    5th best in yards per play.
    9th in yards per game.
    6th best in 3rd down %.
    8th in first downs allowed.
    1st in passing yardage
    9th in getting sacks
    16th in rushing yardage per play
    26th rushing yards allowed per game

    The troublesome spot may be that the defense is 21st in takeaways.
    ********************************************************
    For the Aaron Rodgers crowd check Brett's stats

    1st in completions (first in attempts).
    8th in completion percentage.
    4th in yards.
    5th in touchdowns.
    3rd least sacked behind Manning and Roethlisberger

    The troublesome part is he has the most interceptions.

    *********************************************************

    These are not meant to comfort or aggravate but just for your consumption and assessment.

    misleading

    for an old white guy, Brett is incredibly elusive (or just likes to get the ball out of there)...i saw a few times in the Philly and Minnesota games that Brett has such great pocket awareness that he can avoid a rush...I dont think thats an extreme complement to the o-line, i'd like to see Brett take some sacks rather than...well you know

    it's not the amount of sacks that i'm worried about. it's not picking up the blitz and watching brett get smashed. (see bears game)

    In the next pactice Donald Lee should take a snap look right and get blindsided from the left and that will be and good lesson on picking up the blitz. I'm sure brett would agree

    agreed fvre4mvp...

    that play was pathetic. Like the TV guys said, what made it worse (than him simply missing the block) was that he stood and watched Brett get nailed and didn't even go after the ball when Brett fumbled (thanx to Lee).

    I would agree with JavonWalker084 that Favre is an elusive QB and more so due to his offseason workout program for his twisting torso manuevers.

    I would also say that the turnovers are giving the opposition a short field which actually helps the defensive statistics in yards and 1st downs as they have less distance to go.

    Brett has been most of the offense until Gado got going. His stats are higher than normal. Leading the league in attempts is a telling statistic. I would like to see him get more touchdown passes though.
