    The Packers were a playoff team until the arrival of Ted Thompson.

    There is a lot of talent that has left/been forced out of Green Bay without getting anything in exchange.

    Some blame Ted Thompson for burning things to ground to start over.
    Some have blamed previous drafts for not having replacements ready.
    Some blame the rookie coaching staff for not getting the players ready.

    There is no denying that since the playoff loss to the vikings the Packers have only continued to get worse.

    One can only speculate on Mr. Jones tolerance for embarrassment.

    The thing that burns me is this is one of the easiest schedules the packers have had in years... Too bad we don't have a team to compete.

    It happens to every team you are good and you have your chance for a run at the SB then you go back down then up over and over again.It is just how the nfl is set up

    What is the point of playing times that arent any good so when you get to the playoffs and have to play a good or great team we get killed?

    You mean like "Da Bears" did last year? :wink:
    Your right........but it still would be nice to make it back to the top of the division.

    Hmm. I dunno. I did like the excitement for sure. But I think I'd rather take a year or two of developing a solid team for the future instead of being a 'did they make the playoffs last year' forgotten team.

    Yea we won division titles, but look at the other three teams. It's like saying a grown man beat up a 13 yr old.

    I agree with most of what you said.
    Unfortunately for the Packers, the grown man has grown old, and the 13 year olds have matured.

    Very true.

    I'd like for the division to be considered one of the top three, not the bottom three when the Packers win it.

    Victory is much sweeter, when it is against a worthy opponent. It would be much more gratifying for the Vikes to win the division when the Lions, Bears, Packers, and Vikings, are all good teams.
    Don't know if I'll ever see that (All four teams being good at the same time), but it would make for a great season!

    I'd even settle for 3 of the teams being good. When's the last time 3 have been over 500 counting when the Bucs were in it. Mind you it didn't make a difference when the bucks were in it cause they were like a 10 year old. They didn't even ever reach puberty in the division. LOL

    Exactly. So when a team wins the division in tha weak crop of teams, how can one say a GM inherited a 'playoff' team which implies a team that is one of the top six in that conference?

    Bah, I'm sorry. That theory just gets me going.

    I dunno. Picking the NFC North champ is like choosing the president. You take the one who has the least flaws. Doesnt mean he is the best though.

    Seattle and the NFC West last year? Fewest flaws in a bad division.
    Why run down a team's achievement? They were better than their division rivals and were a playoff team even if a wild card team did not come from their division.

    Under the current system every team in a division has 14 common opponents. To win a division you did better against common opponents than your rivals. 2 games are based on the previous year's achievement. To repeat as division champions the repeating team had the more difficult schedule within the division.

    The Packers to repeat as Division champions was an achievement.
