    Since they are mythological beasts I suppose you can imagine as many as you like. :tup: According to the dictionay, Kyle Fraughton is correct with his plurals. I understand he was originally from Regina, Saskatchewan so you can understand how he'd be hyper-sensitive to such matters. ;)

    The Packers themselves might take care of that on Sunday.

    You remember when when they asked all those athletes if you could take a drug that would make you the best but would kill you in a year and almost all said they would take it? Well...

    I sure hope not. I don't care how stupid you think the play call is you are a professional QB. You try to make the damn throws. To have the attitude you described is unforgivable as an athlete. Its OK to disagree with a call but you don't intentionally screw up just because you are pouting about it.

    What if the Falcons put up 40 on us? Are we still going to give Pettine a pass? or just call for a clean house and revamp the entire coaching staff including DC. I like what Pettine has done but I think if the new guy wants his own DC then let him bring his own DC.

    I hope I am wrong, just throwing out some thoughts after listening to Jeff Saturday talk about his year with the Packers and the eyerolling, passive aggressiveness in the huddle during the play calls. And now he only has 1 WR he really trusts. So I wouldn't go as far as screwing up on purpose as much as it is, "I am not going to risk this throw to a WR I don't trust" Because it honestly looks like he looks at Adams and if he is covered, it is a quick scan of the field and throwaway.

    The main reason I’m willing to give him a pass. The Packers have at least 4 guys who start on defense that should really be backups at the least. Ted Thompson filled the roster with some average football players on that side of the ball.

    I like what I see out of Pettine so far though I would rather he was on the sidelines. I was surprised he did not bring some of his own staff but hopefully he does have people in mind. So I hope he stays. But I would like to see the new HC get rid of all our offensive;) coaches. But maybe keep Philbin. I am really unsure about Philbin. Don't think I want him as HC though.

    I'm not a fan of the power structure in GB the way it stands right now but I do get it. Murphy wants control of the top dogs, those being GM and HC (with input from the GM). I guess I would like the GM to have control over the HC but it doesn't sound like Murphy is going to force anyone on Gute so as long as both agree then I guess there is not much difference.

    I also like what Pettine has done and I would prefer that the new head coach would come in and decide to keep him on but I agree with you that the HC should have control over his staff. These are the guys he has to work with on a daily basis and he has to know them and trust them that they are buying into his ideas. On the other hand if he doesn't I would hate to see Gute or Murphy force a new coach to keep him on if the new coach doesn't like him or thinks he has someone better in mind.

    here is one thought...perhaps his "legacy" might be tarnished by this dismal performance in the beginning of the season after a mega contract so he continues to perform and try to put blame on someone else? owners just paid him handsomely so they are embarrassed right now; they won't put any blame on rod, that's for sure. just a thought. LOL

    anyway most are curious to see how he plays this sunday without mm against a team that has the same record. then again they are not playing for anything so probably a moot point.

    I think there was some subconscious sabotage going on. Those TWO 5-yard passes in the dirt the last few weeks. Who does that? Not even Jay Cutler, Brett Hundley, or Nathan Peterman would miss those throws.

    Also, Kevin King is officially a bust.

    He's consistent i'd say. We'll be going DB again this draft.

    I would like to keep him in place as DC, but I would love for him to rebuild his staff. Trim the fat from the staff, and hand select coaches that would be optimal in making this defense great. I’m sure he has a few guys in mind, he’s been around the league for a while now.

    I really thought the corner position would be our strong point on defense. I will never ever ever have faith Ling will ever stay healthy. My only hope is Jackson and Alexander both are fixtures at corner and both turn into absolute studs. Alexander is already well on his way. King will be gone after he does his 4 yr stint.

    They would be, IF they could stay healthy. When we had King, Alexander, Jackson and Tramon on the field, they looked dang good. Then Tramon got moved to safety, Jackson got bumped up the chart, King is on IR again, Breeland is out and we're going to battle with 2 rookies who are good and will get better and a bunch of who is that? That will be different again this week. But according to some in here, a guy signed yesterday should be able to integrate and lock down a position on defense in week 14 of the NFL season. I happen to think it makes them look worse than they are.

    I'm pretty ambivalent about the Packers winning anymore this season. As long as the Viqueens loose, I'm happy.

    That was arguably one of the fastest scoring possessions we've had.
