    I posted this link in another thread but feel it deserves a post of it's own as it is a positive piece but does point out what needs to be done now in this writer's opinion. So do it Teddy and Cheers.

    The one thing that caught my eye was the low-grade receivers Brett did his two-minute magic with during the 2000 season.

    This past year the excuse was he didn't have the players. He didn't have the running backs for sure,(Gado did better than ok) but he still had Donald Driver, and for a time Ferguson and Franks.

    So how many times did the two-minute drill FLOP this past year?

    I think this one good marker to see the difference between Brett THEN and Brett NOW.

    I like McCarthy's idea that they need to re-establish the running game to take the heat off from Favre. But I recall when given the chance to bring the team back, he often came up short.

    Regardless if Favre does come back, they are going to need to rebuild the interior of the offensive line, (which truly was offensive) and find a top-flight back.
    I think Gado could very nicely fit into the Najeh Davenport role, but they need a burner in the #1 back.

    Still grasping at straws..eh net..?

    (Boy..your Favre hatred runs deep...)

    ONe of the things that NOBODY ever mentions, except myself..is that if you have inferior receivers..the only thing that could compensate for it is TIME...REPETITIONS IN PRACTICE...working over and over with them so that the QB and receiver would at least understand what the other wants him to do...

    The Pack didn't have that this year...

    Hence..that could also be your explanation...but of course..that didn't jump right out at you net..now..did it?

    The other TIME Brett didn't have was time to throw. This years OL doesn't compare to the one in 2000. The rush he saw up the middle was brutal.

    The fact of the matter was the Packers lack of success should be contributed to many factors - including inexperienced skill players, a shoddy O-Line, and yes, even #4 at times!

    I do find it peculiar how when Favre makes a mistake, he's just competing and trying to win the game (which I believe for the most part). When another player makes a mistake, he's an incompetent arsehole that needs to be shown the door. Double standard maybe?

    Before I get hammered on here, let me say this...I believe Favre is the best QB for the Packers next season and I hope to the almighty heavens that he comes back! I just want his teammates to play at a higher level around him and for him to come back in his old form - not the one we just saw. OK, let the bashing begin.

    ND..

    MY point was that there to seem to be a few too many "fans" here who wish to jump at Favre at any turn, yet they often forget to bring up the fact that he had no talent around him, a bad o-line..etc..etc..

    In other words, these so called fans, just love to jump on the "Favre has lost his ability/skills bandwagon"...

    Why? I don't know....but it's very obvious to me that that's what these "fans" are doing....

    I don't know about that 66 as I can only speak for myself...

    Favre needs to return to this team and TT needs to get his checkbook out.

    I like what McCarthy has done so far with his staff. I hope that he hires Bob Sanders as D coordinator. Sanders did a great job last year as DE coach and he would keep the Bates system. Sanders also has experience as a coordinator, at least on the college level, as he was co-defensive coordinator at Florida for many years under Steve Spurrier. If Sanders is hired, then we have different coaches, but both the offensive and defensive systems will stay intact. Brett was obviously not connecting to Rossley and Sherman, according to his brother Scott, so I could see him coming back. Guys like Havel are saying the Packers are rebuilding, but I respectfully disagree. Rebuilding is bringing in new coaches AND running different systems. That is not the case here. I may be in the minority, but I think Brett will still be back. He has a good history with McCarthy as this story mentions and I feel more optimistic than most about his return.
