    Wow.........thank you Dakota!!! I seriously mean that!
    You are right too, about how many games Green missed. He did have some good production last year, WHEN he was able to play. The other thing that worrys me is, how well would that thigh muscle hold up if he WAS on the field more. If you are paying a guy 8 million dollars, you want him to be able to carry the most work load of your RB's. I don't think Green is able to do that anymore. I think his heart is there, but he's not physically where he was back when he put up 1800 yards in a season. If he was still able to do that, THEN i would have said do anything posible to keep him.

    It's no problem. I read all this TT hate on 5 different forums, and I can't believe so many people can't see what the man is building. Gone are the hot tub soaking panzies and they are being replaced with football players.

    I do have a small moral dilemma with Green here though. We got the best of his career for below market value, and that does generate a problem with me. But not enough of a problem to justify 23 million for a 30 year old running back with asthma and a fumbling problem.

    Ahman got a crazy payday. Good for him though.

    You can't really blame Ahman for taking that contract, or TT for not matching it.

    I also hate the fact that he left, but TT's decision not to pay the money Houston pays is absolutely right, although Ahman deserves a big paycheck. For the sentimental side of it: We'll see Ahman in Green Bay in 2008 when the Texans come to play against the Pack.

    I know.........people are panicking because Ted isn't jumping into the FA pool fast enough. Me, i'd rather have someone that takes the time to check on HOW DEEP THE WATER IS, before jumping in. I think alot of these early jumpers are gonna end up drowning.
    Yes, we got Green for a bargan. To me, that was a good move by the Packers. I think had Green been healthy, he would have got a big payday from GB by a contract extension a few years ago. But he didn't remain healthy, and i think that was his downfall. They didn't want to tie up a ton of money, on a player that might not even be physically able to play. To me thats good business sense.

    We should be grateful that Ahman didnt go to the Vikings. That would have been worse than him going to Houston.

    So far, Packers going to Minnesota hasn't hurt us. (Longwell and Sharper) In fact, wasn't it FUN to watch DD burn Sharper last year?
    (I LOVED that!)

    I saw that first hand, and laughed my *** off at my friend the Vikings fan who, before the game, kept saying how sharper was gonna shut driver down cuz he knows all his moves.

    Yes cheesey, you are right. I have that game on tape where Sharper got burned by DD. That was a beautiful sight.

    If i had that recorded, i'd make a LOOP of that one play, and watch it over and over!
    Then i'd also make a copy, and mail it to SHARPER at the Vikings office! :thumbsup:
