    maybe 2 or 3...

    They can't score in the red zone...and have 0 talent at the skill positions(except for Driver)....

    in other words...they suck..

    like Pack said, take away some of Brett's untimely picks, and the pack have maybe 3 or 4 more wins....but I'm not too concerned about the record...this team wasn't going anywhere this year anyway

    I'm more concerned about what Greg brought up, and he put it nicely, that Brett has lacked patience lately, and not just this year. If the team falls down a bit, he has a tendency to force things too much, which concerns me. He needs to be more willing to take the sack, or the 5 yard dump off rather than the homerun ball.

    Now that means that TT and MS need to be able to supply him with a quality run game and receiving threats too, which I agree could be improved upon, but that still doesn't excuse the impatience that Brett can, at times, display.

    yes i agree, brett could be more patient and occasionally take the sack. but favre has always played the same way, his guys on this team, just don't get seperation, or fight for the ball when running their routes.

    Yes, our losing season is made a little better now that the Vikings are also out as well. Makes us even.

    You know what? I totally agree! I never said that it was Favre to blame for the Packers current state. I said that the team it’s self did not have the talent to compete and Favre could no longer carry them by himself. There is no shame in the man getting older and starting to lose his skills. Elway was playing his final games for a team that was much more talented than the current Packers team.
    It is just the natural course of the game. Teams rise to the top and fall back to earth over and over again.
    Teams that were successful for ten years and going to the playoffs on a regular basis fall back to the bottom. Washington, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, Oakland, Miami. It happens to every team eventually. It has happened to the Packers before. The last time it happened it lasted for over 20 years.

    Ok Phil..

    That's not quite what I meant..because I never said that Favre was "losing his skills"..and I don't believe that he is....

    and no one QB can carry a team "all by themselves"...even Favre and Elway needs some help...

    (although Favre has made some rather pedestrian receivers look better than they really are...Bill Shroeder comes to mind...)

    No..Phil..Favre has not "lost it", as you say...(no matter what the trendy opinion might be right now...)

    I did not say that Favre has "lost it" but you have to admit that he has lost "some of it" and that's just the way things go. He is not 27 years old anymore and there is nothing that he or anyone else can do about that. This is just not a good football team and Favre cannot pull them out of the fire. Anyone who is expecting him to pull miracles out of his *** is asking too much of him and the man gave at the office already.
    To be honest with you, I don't see the Packers being a good team next year either. They have too many needs to fill for it to happen in just one off-season. I am not saying that it's impossible, but it is very unlikely.
