    a lot of penalties, culpepper turnovers, bad defense(minus darren sharpers season best play).

    Life without moss isnt so easy after all is it, Culpepper?

    Tice should get a head start on selling those super bowl tickets

    This thread would be a lot funnier if the Pack could have mustered more than 3 lousy points against Detroit today... :wall:

    I don't think it's the loss of Moss so much as it is the loss of Scott Linehan their former OC.

    IIRC the Vikes did well even without Moss when he was injured. New OC = new offensive scheme. Perhaps this isn't the one that will work well for Daunte.

    Oh well, better for us! :)

    In 14 games vs the Packers Moss has 1313 yards and 14 TD's.
    In 14 games vs the Bears Moss has 1115 yards and 10 TD's.
    His top seven games vs the Packers:
    190, 153, 150, 136, 131, 130, 115.
    His top seven games vs the Bears:
    204, 122, 119, 119, 106, 93, 89.
    He has hurt the Packers more than he has hurt the Bears.

    Looks like you have bigger problems than Randy Moss. The Lions receivers had nothing to do with the Packers sorry showing on offense.
    I said that loosing two starters on the O line would hurt the Packers more than you wanted to admit. Let me guess. I am trolling here right?

    I'm not sure how a thread about Minnesota apparently struggling without Moss turns into you digging up stats showing how he had more numbers vs. Green Bay than he did against Chicago. I'm not up on all the internet terminology though, so I'm not sure if that's "trolling".

    I am saying that the Packers played this game with all three of their starting recievers against a so so Lions defense and put 3 points on the board. Minnesota loosing without Moss and Onterio Smith is not as bad as Green Bay loosing with Driver, Walker, Ferguson, Franks and Green all on the field today. Randy Moss is gone.

    That they did, but seriously, you think what you see today was as good as the Packers offence is going to be? You don't seem stupid or anything. I say they laid an egg.

    I completely agree. Linehan knew exactly what he could exspect from Daunte and taylored the offense to fit him. The new OC Looney is trying to force his system. At half time there was an interveiw with Tice, and he said they were going to take away some of Daunte's calls at the line.

    No of course not, but I say that the offense is not what it was last year and they really have to be that good to win games. Obviously they will not score 3 points a game but every time they stall and every time they turn the ball over, that means that their weak defense will be on the field trying to save the day. Do you see that happening this season?
    I don

    I think there's a good chance the defence's improvement matches or passes the offence's decline. Whether that ends up meaning status quo record wise, I'll tell ya in January. :wink:

    Funny that both the Vikes and Packers had offensive retardation when everyone was so concerned with our D's last year (and our D still this year).

    Phil, I think you're giving the Lions' D too little credit. They have one of the best front 4's in the league, they're a little weak at LB, but they have two Pro Bowlers in the secondary. I wouldn't say it's a so-so D. It's definitely in the top half of the league.

    I never said that the Lions defense was bad; I just think that they are middle of the Pack at best. The Packers are going to face teams that have better defenses than the Lions this year including Tampa Bay, Carolina, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Atlanta and Chicago twice.
