    I said over the last 10 years not just this last year and sorry Favre was not great against the Giants at all, two senseless picks and no big plays killed us.

    What about the perfect pass Favre threw to Ruvell Martin that he dropped.

    Ruvell catches that pass, we got a great chance of winning that game.

    If I am blaming anyone for this game it is the coaching staff.

    Compare MM's approach vs. Tom Coughlin's

    Offense

    MM: Give Up on the struggling Running Game (eliminating playaction)
    Throws lots of Screens (since they worked all year, j/k)
    Game Plan away from Favre's strength: Short Pass West Coast Off.

    TC: Stick with the struggling running game to keep the defense honest
    Don't throw many deep passes because of the weather.
    Game Plan to Eli's strength: Manageable Third Downs, 5-15 yd passes

    Defense:

    MM: Stick with the unsucessful 4 man rush
    Don't give a struggling Al Harris any help.

    TC: Start blitzing when the front 4 falters.
    Give your Corners a safety blanket.


    That's right I am bashing McCarthy. He had a great year, but failed his team when we needed him most.

    However, I am totally stoked McCarthy got his extension. He is a young coach and will only get better. I honestly believe McCarthy can lead GB to the promise land.

    GO PACKERS!

    So MM was the one throwing the ball?

    Also you criticize MM(which is fine, they should all get a spanking) for abandoning the run game that wasnt working, then criticize him for STICKING WITH the screen game(you know, short passes\substitute for the run game). Hmmm....

    And for fun, the famous 'last throw' had 2 short routes (the tight end wasn't very far, and grant underneath wide the **** open).

    By saying Favre's strength is the short throw, you're insinuating his weakness is the long ball, which I won't buy for a second. Not one second.

    I won't argue to death that MM got outcoached(I'm not sure he did), but Coughlin's been in the league forever, and MM is in his 2nd year. A VERY IMPRESSIVE 2nd year. Like young players, he hopefully continues to improve(8-8 to 13-3 says he can).

    There is big big difference between a slant and a screen. Screens require run blocking. Slants do not. The SCREEN game was **** all year. The SHORT (FORWARD) PASS kicked ***.

    In horrible weather, the long ball is the enemy of EVERY QUARTERBACK. The QB can't grip the ball as well (which will take some distance off his throw) and the weather and wind give the DB's more time to catch up to the "open" WR, adjust, and make plays.

    13-3 to Super Bowl Victory says he will. :D

    Let it be known. Donald Driver shouldn't get a spanking.

    Oh he's gonna get one from me, but it has nothing to do with -- ok, I can't go through with that sentence.

    I do have a question about the game against New York: What happened to our slant passes?

    The Giants for the most part played inside of the reciever making the clean release to the outside, but again in my opinion we didn't use the motion properly to get someone free underneath.

    There were definately other factors, but the one that jumps out the most is the defenders taking away the inside releases.

    :eek: Good post Toppackerfan; and as usual most of the sawdust heads here think he's just blowing smoke. If they really want to see some improvement and a return to a Super Bowl they could try to understand the validity in this post. Of course it makes sense and that may be its biggest shortcoming for posting here.

    The only one that seemed to not even be willing to consider the points in McGinn's article was fuzznuts.

    Not sure what you've been reading...
