    Part of the responsibility of the offense is to put drives together and stay on the field long enough to keep the defense OFF the field. The Packers have, in many games this season, been woefully unable to do that. When you have such a spotty defense, it becomes a priority. Yesterday, apparently, the defense just fell apart. So blame goes all around.

    Favre can't play linebacker and try to stop Pennington and the Jets from scoring. But he and his offense have to produce some first downs. They don't bear the blame but they do share some responsibility. Especially when you have weapons like Ahmam Green, Donald Driver and Greg Jennings.

    The Titans won against the Colts yesterday largely because Vince Young & company ate up huge junks of yardage and time and it ketp Peyton Manning watching from the sideline. That's the bottom line. As soon as Manning is on the field, you're in trouble. You can't always just play that game of field position and hope your defense will get a stop. You have to be able to drive the ball.

    I'm focusing on the offense here because I don't want to even think about the defense right now. Horrible. Special teams had been really bad, as well.

    Don't pin all the blame on Favre. But don't give him a free pass, either. Because Rodgers is out, I say we have to keep him in, it's a no brainer. But if Rodgers were healthy, I'd likely be joining the call for him to start. Not because I don't like Favre, but because it is becoming obvious that if this is simply a rebuilding season, then let's get on with the rebuilding. (sigh)

    Our offense as a whole has struggled as of late and had tons of 3 and outs not only does that not get us any points but our defense isnt very good, and because of all the 3 and outs our Defense gets tired and become worse. Part has to do with Favre but im not so sure I like some of the playcalling

    I think Favre's accuracy has declined a bit over the past few seasons, and it has been a factor in some losses, though it's hard to pin down because of all the other shortcomings on this team. Definitely in the loss to the Patriots, Favre's inaccuracy prevented the team from having a chance to win because it needed to be a shootout for the Packers to have any shot at all. And in the games against the Rams and Jets he also had some problems with accuracy. The Rams game could've been won if he had been more accurate, but this one against the Jets was just going to be a kill no matter what.

    I think this groin injury may still be bothering him. His decision-making is a bigger concern because he presses too much when the Packers fall behind in the second half. How many years has it been since he led a fourth quarter comeback? It's more difficult now than ever, of course, with the players around him being so inexperienced or just not very good, but still, I remember him throwing gamewinning TD passes to the likes of Jeff Thomason and Cory Bradford in 1999.
