    Hearing some of the other games, I'm really grateful we have #4 back there. Two of the teams we played earlier in the season had QBs that went down - Denver and MN. I hope their injuries aren't serious, but I'm just reminding everyone not to take #4 for granted. He took some hits today. The Chiefs only got one sack, but they hit Favre a bunch of times, and several times with 2 defenders. We're really lucky as a team to have the Iron Man.

    Yeah I was really impressed by the hits he took today. The way he takes them... I mean wow. This guy is really like watching those kids on a playground just popping right back up, shaking it off a little, and running around again. He is definitely not a sissy pants.

    The one hit where Allen's whole body landed on top of him had me scared for a bit. Favre was slow getting up, and I thought that was it. Thankfully he was ok. Hopefully Jackson and Cutler will be fine, too. Hate to see anyone go down for good.

    Yeah, Favre took some huge hits today but was unfazed. He got better as the game went on. What a player. I am more in awe of him than I have ever been.

    (This may be a subject for another thread, but could somebody please tell me why on earth Darryn Colledge is playing guard in the NFL?)

    Yeah, I bet Favre spends some time in the tub this week. He took some real shots today.

    As for College, I think he has earned a place on the bench after escorting all those KC dlineman into Favre lap. When Wells is back to full strength, Spitz should go to LG and leave Moll at RG.

    How can we with everyone 'reminding' us of his greatness every week?

    I love the dude, but it's the play of 22 guys in green and gold that has us at 7-1, not just #4.

    This thread is more to do with Favre's health than his success as a QB. Or at least that's what I was trying to say.

    I think we shouldn't be taking this entire season for granted. From offense to defense this has been real fun to watch.

    Would rather Wells stay on the bench and Spitz play center. Colledge had an awful day for sure(#70), but Wells is just awful period. Run game got a lot worse when Moll went out and Spitz moved over.

    I think you're in the minority with that opinion. Most people seemed to think Wells was our most consistent O-lineman before he was injured. So did I.

    I'm not sure if the decline in the running game today had anything to do with Wells coming into the game. The running game declined last week in the second half with Spitz playing the whole game.

    And if Wells was part of the problem, it could be because he just got over a bout of pneumonia. I didn't see him get blasted backwards while pass blocking, like Colledge did, and he didn't commit any penalties either.

    I would hope the center wouldn't get blasted into the backfield. He doesn't have the majority of responsiblity in pass blocking. Hardly ever any one on ones. However, I did see him get blasted into the backfield on a few runs plays today. I would say Tauscher is and has been our best Olinemen by far.

    What was Brett's passer rating otday.
    I think looking around the leageu and the lack of QB play all together is reason enough to relish #4

    Agreed. Just wait for them to go through thin years with bad OLs. I don't think either of them experienced taking the hits Favre has taken. Not that I'm wishing it to happen, I'm just being realistic.

    All the fans that became Packer fans in the early 1990's have NO idea what it might be like when Favre plays his last snap for us. Only fans that lived through the 1970's and 80's know what it's like to be bad year after year.
    We have been lucky to be alive and Packer fans during this unreal run. I know it won't be long till Favre rides off into the sunset........it will be a sad day, and i for one am enjoying every second of his time here.

    Yes that should be a complete topic... his weakness is overall strength... and it got exposed time and time again yesterday.. I sure hope Coston come back soon.. more Spitz over the the left guard and make Colledge sit a game or two.. it worked last year and shaped him up.. he needs the kick in the arshe..
