    Who you were most surprised/Disappointed with this year?

    Surprises
    1. Brett Favre
    2. Donald Lee
    3. Atari Bigby
    4. KGB
    5. Franks
    6. Crosby

    Dissapointments
    1. Jackson
    2. Jenkins
    3. Collins
    4. Blackmon
    5. Harrell
    6. O-Line


    I am also a little disappointed in the Defense. I thought we were going to be a top 5 Defense this year and we still might but we are definitely not there yet. We are I believe 19th in the league in YPG. The good news is we are 4-0 and if we continue to improve and guys step up we could end up with one of the better records in the league

    I think the D has been pretty good. Not too many major breakdowns. Plus, it seems they bend but don't break. They give up some yards, but do pretty good at stopping the other team from getting a TD.

    I'm not so surprised with Favre, as I felt all along that if he had the guys and the time to make the throws, he would be back to form.
    Bubba has been a pleasant surprise, along with Lee. The TE position was a real concern for me.
    And I agree that Jackson has not been good yet. But i didn't expect that he was gonna be thrown into the fire so early.
    With that, i'm dissapointed with Morency. I thought he would be more durable. But hey, we still are undefeated!

    Disclaimer: All of these "disappointments" still have plenty of time to prove themselves this season. I've included no defensive starters in my list of disappointments because the defense has played very well so far.

    2. John Jolly
    3. Donald Lee
    4. Brett Favre
    5. Bubba Franks
    6. Jarret Bush
    7. Junius Coston

    Disappointments:
    1. AJ Hawk (He has the talent to dominate, hasn't played to his potential thus far)
    2. Charles Woodson (although he was far from a disappointment against the Vikes)
    3. Jon Ryan (for his punting, although he too was far from a disappointment against the Vikes)
    4. Brandon Jackson (I think he'll be a star, but I didn't anticipate him having as steep a learning curve as he seems to have)
    5. Vernand Morency (Isn't doing a whole lot to shed the 'injury prone' label.

    Surprises:
    1. 4-0
    2. Spider Monkey
    3. Favre playing like he's 27
    4. KGB
    5. Jolly
    6. Franks/Lee
    7. DeShawn Wynn

    Dissappointments:
    1. NONE!!!!

    Slight Dissappointments:
    1. Hawk (been solid, not spectacular)
    2. Harrell (just seems lazy)
    3. RUN GAME!!! (OLINE and some RB's)
    4. Morency

    NOTE:
    I wouldn't want any other Weakside LB in the league, but AJ seems a little rusty right now.

    Harrell still has a couple years before I cry bust.

    Morency needs to play better if he wants a long term deal.

    Run game needs to get on track before November, IMO.

    Oh it's gonna happen.

    but WHEN? here are possible scenarios:

    1. When my cubs get eliminated from the playoffs and im PISSED.
    2. When GB loses their 1st game and the masses freak out. The humor of the situation would wear off and I'd soon be annoyed by the stupidity.
    3. Ryan allows depack\pyle\pack66 back onto the forum, all at the same time.
    4. When AADP sends me more 'wanna cyber?' PMs even though I keep telling him I'm not interested.
    5. If I lose my signature bet with 4thand26, so I don't have to be seen with the embarrassing sig.

    Now taking bets.

    Here is an article about Jenkins. They say he's been playing hurt. I think he's playing pretty well, actually, but he's not the beast that he was in the preseason. Hopefully he will return to top form soon:

    1) 4-0
    2) Mike McCarthy's play-calling (for the most part)
    3) An old dog learning new tricks

    I'm not sure I am disappointed with anything on the Packers right now. The run game is as bad as I had expected so I can't say that I'm disappointed with it.

    If I HAD to pick something, I guess AJ Hawk is having a little big of a sophomore slump.

    Consistently putting pressure on the Quarterback is good enough for me and I think most teams would take what he's been giving us. Calling him a dissapointment is to much of a stretch in my opinion. He's been worth every penny of the contract we gave him.

    Though if you were having hopes that he was going to put up 15+ sacks then I can see why you'd give that answer.

    I was having hopes he would put up A Sack at least.

    12 Tackles and no Sacks, not real impressive. He looked like a dominant force in pre-season. So far he has looked routinely average

    I agree, you can only judge a player's effectiveness with statistics.

    1. Brett throws 1 interception and is blamed for the Chicago loss.(no wait that's not a surprise some still put him on such a high pedastol that he should be sitting to the right of The Almighty.)

    Dissapointments.

    1.Packer fans who can still pick apart a team that has started 4-1 and is leading their division for the first time in what 3-4 years.

    Would someone explain to me why Woodson is a disapointment?
