    to me.... most of the 18 INT's were thrown when the Packers were behind and Brett was just trying to win games with fifth and sixth string players.

    and like I said, If TT goes to J-Walk right away, and offers him 10 million garunteed, no way javon leaves GB, regardless of what #4 said.

    Javon did not leave the Packers because of Brett. Javon was pissed off because management did not take care of him, so he moved on.


    like I said we sign J-Walk, DD, Green , and draft TE Olsen, we aint having this discussion.

    I understand what you're saying, but the 2 really aren't at all the same. CB's don't rely on timing with other teammates anywhere near what QB have to. Sure CB have read routes and know when to check off, but nothing like what a QB's should be practicing.

    And don't get me wrong, Woodson was hurt by missing camp, his timing and play stunk at the beginning of the year. The secondary's communication was a large part of the defensive problems last year.

    :rotflmao: :twocents: Say we sign Walker, and he has the year he had last year, and DD has the same year he had in 2006. The Packers make the playoffs, how exactly is this bad for the packers?
    Please explain this nonsence
    WRONG, actually rookie deals are re-worked all the time
    WTF JJ? :rotflmao: 30 catches a year, whats that? are you kidding or just drunk? how about two WR with 1000 yards each and a 1000 yard back. say like .....DD, J-Walk, Green
    WTF does extra helpings mean, man sober up before you write these crappy rambling posts.
    Like I said ....the last couple seasons, Brett has been throwing to reserves in the month of December, If we had some real talent on offence, people wouldn't be posting such crap about the best player on the Packers

    How do you know Favre doesn't work out in the off season? Are you there with him?
    Have you seen someone so great that you think they could lead the Packers better this coming season?
    I just don't understand what some think an unproven QB is going to do for this team. If I thought Rodgers was so great that we should sit Favre, I'd say so. But i don't believe that for a second.
    And I don't give a pass for Favre's bad plays. I just honestly look at WHY certain things happened, and place the blame where it belongs, whether it was Favre, the O line, WR's, TE's or whoever.
    Does he do some bonehead plays? Yes. But NO person/player is perfect. Even Peyton Manning messes up sometime.
    Be patient........this will probably be the last season you will have to suffer watching Favre play.

    According to reports Brett has a personal trainer this off season once again. But who wants to believe those kind of reports.

    I should have been more clear when I said he doesn't work out in the off season, I meant with his teammates, like several QB's do in the off-season.

    I'm certainly not going to argue with Favre fans, he can do very little wrong in their eyes.

    That's just silly. I posted this thread to gauge what other forum folks thought about his declining numbers, if I should be worried.

    | 2003 gnb | 16 | 308 471 65.4 3361 7.1 32 21 | 18 15 0 |
    | 2004 gnb | 16 | 346 540 64.1 4088 7.6 30 17 | 16 36 0 |
    | 2005 gnb | 16 | 372 607 61.3 3881 6.4 20 29 | 18 62 0 |
    | 2006 gnb | 16 | 343 613 56.0 3885 6.3 18 18 | 23 29 1 |

    Now, as a fan of football, I know full well it's a team sport. With no team, no matter how good of a football player you are, you won't get the results you need.

    Favre is obviously not the same QB he was in the mid-90s. He's not as fast, he's a lot more injured, and the gambles he takes are less successful than they were before because his skills have declined.

    However, he still moves the chains. 2005 started off with an injury to Javon Walker, who at the time was the Packer's best WR. Then it all went downhill. By the end of the season, Green and Davenport, our #1 and #2 RBs were out. Walker and Ferguson were out and we were left with Driver and Chatman as our WRs. Franks and David Martin at TE both were injured and we were left with Donald Lee and Ben Steele.

    So to make matters worse, Favre got desperate and tried to make plays that weren't there. Sometimes he pulled it off. More often than not, it exploded in our faces. He had a forgettable year and it was a bad year to be a Packers fan.

    2006 looked better, but we had 3 starters on the OL, and had to keep a TE and a RB back almost at all times or else we probably would have led the league in most sacks allowed. Opposing defenses had no problem rushing only four men, and keeping seven back to cover three receivers. Do the math. It is absolutely amazing Driver had a year like he did, proving he's one of the better WRs in the NFL. Unfortunately, Jennings got injured in week 6 and never fully recovered. He looked spectacular in his first five games.

    2007 will prove if Favre is washed up or still has it.

    I consider myself pretty fair when it comes to assessments. I can see the whole picture, and as I said several times, a lot of the blame does go on Favre. But, I think it's more you who's anti-Favre than us who are overly forgiving.

    Oh, I don't know, how about the fact that he said on camera in an interview that he hasn't touched a football since the Bear game. But you're right, in light of recent events, I really shouldn't take him at his word, because I don't think that's worth all that much anymore.

    Well I guess you look at it as me being anti-Favre which is fine. I look at it as pro-Packers. I want this young team to move on with a QB that can grow with the team, instead of going through the annual Favre retirement dance, and then the "TT didn't get weapons for me pout".

    I'm not going to go to the effort in posting Favre's 4th Qtr. #'s or his #'s in close games, but they're close to the worst in the league. He's no where near a top 10 QB as many here have stated.

    You consider yourself seeing the whole picture. Look at Favre's #'s against teams that weren't bottom feeders, they're awful.

    Look ********, if you would actually read the post you might hear what I am talking about.

    I was referencing the thirty catches to the #3 WR which is about what they usually contribute at that position. I know exactly how many catches DD and Walker make.

    You keep crying about who Favre has to throw to all the time which is for the most part bull. No we don't have an all pro #3 receiver. Who does?

    As far as December goes MANY TEAMS are depleted by then at MANY positions. Murphy was unfortunate, Gardner never panned, Fergy was hurt as usual, KRob got ripped early by the new Commish, etc,.

    It's not like Management hasn't addressed WR. It's a position that has taken a hit more than others. You can't keep ten of them on the roster.

    As far as Walker goes it is NOT the norm to re-do contracts two years out. Players that DO get their deals re-done early have been over producers for a number of years. Not just one.

    Walker got paid very well his first two years on a front end loaded contract and didn't do squat. He didn't deserve it. Get over it.

    You always want to play the IF game and isolate certain players we should have kept and talk about how much better life would be with names like Walker and Jarrett (which is joke) who hasn't even caught a pass yet and even Wahle for crying out loud.

    Most of the time your a whiney prick with nothing positive to say who contributes nothing more than how grand life would be with players no longer here or who have never been a Packer.


    But I'm the one who rambles on with worthless posts.

    The big body and mobility will help him avoid sacks to get it downfeild.
    I think Russel will be amazing. and Quinn will suck!

    **** you prick, see this is supposed to be a forum where i can post without being attacked. you're at least the third person who has called me names, and when i respond to your pathetic ramblings about how a third string WR will turn the team around. like always , your post calling me names will stand, and my responce will be deleted. Some ******* puke hick from alabama is going to tell me what is best for a team I've watched my entire life. i sat threw games in the 70's out at County Stadium, and been to lambeau tons of times. after brett retires and TT is canned, the packers start to lose , I'll still be wearing packer gear and going to games. you'll move on to the next team forum featuring whatever player the NFL promotes.

    If I feel the Packers would have been better with Walker , DD, and Green than Jackson, Jones, Jennings, then that's my business you ******* puke, you don't like it then move on and read something else and don't respond to my post.

    and like i wrote, list the starting WR for the Packers in December of 2004, 2005, 2006 and tell me how we were supposed to win w/those players.

    Own that Biotch

    You went to games in the 70s? You're that old and you still act like that?

    Jesus Christ, I thought you were 19 or something. Grow up.

    you tell me to grow up, you're the one that i'm talking about Wahle compared to colledge and you type in huge letters YOU MORON.

    basically because I didn't agree with you, you sarted yelling and callling me names and you're telling me to grow up?

    Maybe you should follow your own advice kid.

    What has happened to this place over the last few days? Jeepers.


    warhawk's post wasn't nearly as offensive as yours dhpackr.


    Let's just take the name calling out on both sides and drag that stuff the smack area. Opinions are great, name calling is fun but c'mon. There's a place for it.

    I'm not the one that started this crap. Go back to the post where you were the one doing the initial insulting. If your going to give it than be prepared although I didn't expect much less than the whiney *** attitude.

    Yes you can post the same crap about Walker and Wahle and Brett's lack of help.....over and over and over, every chance you get. You call yourself a fan when all you do is bitch about what the team hasn't done, what they should have done and how much better the team could have been.

    I prefer to nix the "woulda, coulda, shoulda," crap and look at the positive side things and get behind the team as a fan instead of focusing on topics about issues that are irrelevant.

    My uncle played for the Packers and my father, who coached college football for MANY years, was called by Mr. Vince Lombardi to interview for an assistants job in '66. I have been to several National Coaches Conventions, met most anybody you can name, and have sat in on more game film then you have been to the movies.

    But your the expert and I'm just a ******* puke from Alabama.

    Great resume, all I am is a football fan from Wisconsin. Who is posting his view points. if you feel because your daddy was a coach, and your uncle played for even say Bart Starr, Your veiw points are more valid than mine then more power to you.

    Do you think I want the Packers to fail? if your family played football in wisconsin, and I'm telling you I'm born and raised here, do you really have to question "IF I am a fan". Hopefully I am wrong. Brandon Jackson runs for a 1000 yards, GJ has a breakout year and has 1000 yards, DD puts up another 1200 season and packers win 10 games and make the playoffs. Great, awesome. I am as excited as anyone.

    I just don't think, in my opinion it will happen. I am sorry, but i feel TT made a huge mistake letting Walker out of GB. Especially when you have #4 and DD.

    and I could careless about your hours of watching film, its not hard to tape A game and re-watch film.

    IMHO, Brett hasn't had anybody to throw to in the second half of the season for the last couple years and it has affected his numbers. you feel differently, and your point is more valid than mine b/c your uncle played in GB........whatever

    sorry I got so vicious, the hood rat came out. you are from the south and you don't do that, and i should have just ignored your post


    peace out
    GO PACKERS

    go cheer for javon walker... he whined his way out of green bay and brett favre helped give him the push out the door.

    you are obviously big fans of both javon and brett, and yet you ignore the FACT that they were the 2 biggest reasons Javon Walker doesnt play in green bay anymore.
    blame it on TT if you want, but its more their fault than anyones. i realise it makes life easier to blame the first guy with a general manager tag you see, but that doesnt make it right.

    by my calculations your at least 40 something, and i think thats a little old to still show your hood rat side. but what do i know.

    I am from WISCONSIN.

    I was born and raised there. My roots are there. Where I live has nothing to do with it.

    For the record I understand that the Packers have had problems at WR at the end of recent seasons. As I have said all teams are dealing with injuries as the season goes on. We have had more than our share at that position recently.

    Most teams will struggle with injuries and have to find a way to work thru them. The Bears last year were not the same at the end of the year without their two stud "D"lineman and Brown out.

    The opposition isn't always able to put their best defensive guys out there at the end of the year either.

    You are talking about a depth problem on a team that had to build depth at virtually every position and there are still positions we cannot afford to take on many injuries.

    It would have been nice to have more depth at WR the last few years considering the number of guys that have gone down. Team depth is coming around and we have like ten WR's in camp this year.

    I was one of the biggest advocates for Moss. It didn't happen so let's move on. I would rather cheer for who's here than jeer who's not.

    That's where the difference is between you and I. Not the miles between Wisconsin and Alabama.

    The only point of my resume (your words) is to establish the fact that my background includes more than seeing if I can hit the cow in the back yard between the eyes with chew.

    Us Alabamians have more pride than that. We leave nonsense such as that for the wife.

    I do, and will continue
    again , here we go. you feel Javon left the packers b/c of Brett Favre, I feel Javon left b/c TT didn't re-work his rookie contract. See, it is a discussion forum, nobody is right or wrong.
    i know you can take the man out of the city, but you'll never take the city from the man.
    peace out

    :thumbsup: like i said, even though Brandon Jackson is our RB, and I am not happy about some of TT decisions, I'm still buying packer gear, going to games, watching games.

    The thread was about #4's status...not the upcoming season. people were writting about Brett's decline, and I'm saying there is a reason for this decline in stats over the last couple years, and it revolves aroud player personell, not Brett's lacking skills.

    go GJ, go Brandon Jackson go Jones
    GO 2007 PACKERS is that better or could I express my opinion, in a forum, w/o being attacked, how none of these guys except GJ were full time starters in college. and if they couldn't start in college, why does everyone expect them to suddenly "SHINE" in the NFL and advance us to the playoffs?

    and is it really whining, if I feel the packers would have been beter off getting a guy like Jarrett in the second round. If Jarrett teaming with Steve Smith is a key factor to the Carolina Panthers returning to the Playoffs, is it wrong to think of a scenerio where Jarrett could have been teamed w/DD
