    Favre had a bad day. Let's keep in mind though, that two dropped passes could have turned his bad day into an average day.

    Seriously consider this. Consider that Morency caught that one drop that ended up being picked off by the Eagles (which was right in his hands, no excuse for that) and Driver caught that touchdown that was also right in his hands.

    These are Brett's stats:
    B. Favre 22 44 205 0 2

    Now, these would have been Brett's stats:
    B. Favre 24 44 220 1 1

    Not a good day still, but not a bad day.

    In defense of Driver, I've seen James Lofton drop a touchdown before, so it happens to anyone. (And if anyone has anything bad to say about James Lofton, I hope you get the stomach flu). Believe me, I was pissed, but it happens. Driver is still and always will be one of my fav Packers. Move on.

    Can we factor in the 3 ints that the Eagles blew in the first half also?

    Are you a Packer fan, or a Rodgers fan?

    This game was a lot like the Bears game for Favre. He was very good in the first half, though the playcalling was extremely conservative so he was throwing mostly short passes. In the second half the Pack fell behind and Favre started pressing, as he always does in those situations. His accuracy declined, and he started throwing into coverage. Although one of the two interceptions was not his fault, he threw at least a few other passes that easily could've been intercepted.

    Favre is not one of the main problems with this team, by any means, but let's face it: He is not a good comeback QB anymore, and for whatever reason, he has not been a good comeback QB since 1999. Somehow, none of the national TV announcers has picked up on this fact. Every one of them says, as if it has been scripted for them, "As long as Brett Favre is in the game, the Packers still have a chance."

    Driver's performance was extremely disappointing last night: two HUGE drops, one of them a TD. Jennings has now outplayed him two games in a row.

    That's just dead wrong.

    I guess he didn't "come back" against the Lions last week, did he?

    Or almost against the Saints the week before?

    The problem is that the team that is around Favre is dog doo doo. In other words, they suck.

    1. Let me clear this up: I do not like the Pack, but I love the NFL. I am forced to follow the Packers due to Geography.
    2. I am not ripping on Favre. I enjoy watching him play.
    3. You said it " he came back" against the Lions. The Lions.

    Simply placing emphasis on which team Favre came back against. You should be thankful for the Lions.

    Ahhh..you must be a Lions fan..

    I pity you..

    That's the point skeezix...

    The problem is that people think that Favre is some kind of Superman who is supposed to overcome the tremendous odds that are against him thanks to TT and MM, and beat all of these teams somehow without having a good team around him.

    Maybe people are spoiled. Some people like to say he's lost it.

    Whatever. All I know is Steve McNair is 4-0 on the Ravens, and Brad Johnson is 3-1 on the Vikings, and Favre is better than both of those guys.

    So it has to be the team, wouldn't you think?

    You aren't supposed to use profane language on this site, and calling me a Lions fan is about the most profane thing you could do...

    Favre definately gives them the best chance of winning...6 or 7 games this year, at the most. Don't you want your future qb playing with your team of the future?

    I don't mind Favre in there, he is very entertaining. But, if I was a GB fan, I would say it is time to cut the cord and move on.

    The Packers never trailed against the Lions, so no, Favre did not come back against the Lions.

    I agree that the team around Favre is not very good right now. But early in his career, and in the '99 season, the team wasn't very good either, and Favre engineered some great comebacks, often throwing the ball to players who have long since been forgotten.

    I still think Favre is a good QB overall and that he should be starting for the Packers, but playing from behind has become a weakness for him.

    Well put 4pack. This site could use a little more of your enlightened game analysis.

    Very well put!!! It is the entire team, NOT just one person. But like they say when games go bad they blame the QB...

    Good post!! Favre is better then McNair or Johnson, IMO it is the team!! The only person that the announcers put infront of Brett was Jerry Rice, then it was Favre and Peyton...

    Yeah, you're right Heather.

    All of the Jackyls want to come out and try to pick over Favre's bones now because he's on a bad team.

    Like the saying goes, "You don't beat a dead dog".

    I dont want Brett to go to another team, nor do I think that will ever happen. But if he was on a good team with experience he would win games and end up on a Superbowl worthy team...
