    [align=center]Four of our losses were by 10 or more point deficits. (14, 10, 12 and 45)
    Eight games were lost by 7 points or less. (2, 1, 3, 3, 7, 3, 5 and 7)
    Five games were lost by 3 points or less. (2, 1, 3 , 3 and 3)[/align]

    The 'numbers' make it look like we were a good kicker or consistent offensive TD weapon away from winning quite a bit of games.

    Zero,
    Yeah, a lot of tough losses, probably means we could of went 8-8 with a break here or there.

    But when you look at our year end stats you can't hide what you find when you look at our overall rankings running and against the run. That coupled with the fact that we benefitted by playing a lot of backup QB's against teams when their #1 guy was hurt, and still lost most those games.

    Playoff teams don't finish 31st in anything. We got things to fix. So what? Let's fix 'em. We don't need to replace a gazillion guys to get better on both sides of the ball.

    I have said before "five new faces in the right places" and we a whole lot better.

    I'm not disagreeing, but what back ups? B. Johnson and K. Orton are the only two that I can think of off the top of my head. And BJ is the starter and was the starter before. He also won a SB. I can't discredit him nearly as much as Orton.

    No way do I want us taking a OL in the first round. The way I see it, TT should worry about what is in the best interest for the Packers and not in the best interest to get Favre back. If meaning us acquiring Woodson or Arrington and drafting Hawk or Williams doesn't bring Brett back, then so be it. Eventually he's going to retire.

    We trade Javon and our first pick to denver for ashley lelie and their two first rounders. WE draft that justice guy and maybe like that guy from USC (ol) or sinorice moss.

    NO O-line in the first 3 rounds if you ask me. while i agree the game is won in the trenches... your more likely to benefit from a well oiled line than a bunch of new young talent. I just think higher draft picks should be reserved for immediate impact players... its been said a bunch but O-lines can take three years to Gel. not to mention we found offensive lineman gems in late draft rounds before.

    With few exceptions, DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS !!!

    Maybe TT knows a bit more about football than many of us have given him credit.

    Amen Brother.

    A great defense and formidable running game=SB

    SEE LAST YEAR: Seattle vs. Pittsburgh

    You don't HAVE to have an all-world QB to win. Neither of these teams did.

    Now. You put great defense, formidable running game, AND, Bret Favre on the field? Look out. He will carve you up like a deer hanging from a Mississippi hardwood.

    Well TT obviously knows more than us, he is an NFL Gm we arent. A great defense is almost essential for a championship. Look at Indy they havent made it there. And they have a Great Ofeense.

    We will be better off than most TT haters assume. Just wait, they will get it soon.

    So who would of brought Favre back? overpaying for Hutchinson? Randel El? Lloyd? Going after Edge??

    Taking D'Brick makes little sense. He's a primary LT and we have Clifton who can't be moved.

    Why wouldnt they bring him back. He wants a team that contend for a title. Defense wins .
