    "Feeling" like we are dropping the ball on the Moss case is a reason to get yourself all worked up like this?
    Just because we don't SEE what is going on doesn't mean NOTHING is happening. I REALLY believe they are trying to get this done. In the end, if we DON'T get Moss, it doesn't necessarily mean thet TT and the rest of the Packer staff didn't do ALL that they could to try to get it done.
    There are MANY people involved in this, and any one of them can throw a wrench into the works.

    Thats true, it might not get done and it might not be our fault. I just hope that we have a contingency plan because it will be a depressing few months thinking that we will enter the season with the same receiving corps & Bubba in the starting lineup. It would really irk me.

    Cuz he is due to make 21 million in the next 2 years..get him to re-do it to make most of it paid out now

    I think the Packers are trying to get the 2nd year down to a more reasonable number, and put alot of it in this year like the Woodson deal.

    Oh god i really hope not :rotflmao: Anything but another year of bubba. I'd rather see us run the old "run & shoot" offense than see that again.

    You felt same way last year Pyle, even said anything over 6 wins would be an improvement..Since it was a 8 game win season you should be ecstatic?


    and yes I took time to do a search as I told you once b4, I wanted to see your thoughts about the team last year..

    we we're damn close to 9 - 7, we could easily have been 9 -7 or better with some luck last season.

    like you put it with Harlan and TT,

    the Fords have given Millen lots of chances and he has not been successful, therefore Harlan is wrong about TT.

    Well, you were wrong about last season, therefore you are wrong about next season as well.

    You obviously pointed out that you didn't think the Packers even would win 6 games.

    "I'm a Packers fan, and even I think most of you need to put down the Kool-Aid as well. 9-7 and the playoffs WILL not happen. If the Packers win 6 games they might as well consider it a successful season."

    don't try to talk it away by saying you said "they", everyone knows, including you, that you, at that time, had no confidence in the Packers that season, you sure as hell didn't think they would win 8 games.

    You know what Oregon. I went back through all your posts. you have been a member here for 12 days. You have 97 posts which is pretty high for the amount of days you have been on here. More than half of your posts are about defending managements bonehead moves. Why dont you just come out and admit it that you are a memeber of the Packers mgmt. and that you will defend them to no end. Either that or.....Like i said before.

    i cant believe that this is still being discussed.



    let me break it down for everyone.

    there are 2 types of fans.

    1st group= Smart People.

    and then theres

    2nd group = People who think they know better than an NFL GM, think they know whats going on behind the scenes, people who run with every possible tangent discussed on any half *** website, people who think that signing "big money" FA's will make you a super bowl team.

    Some think that because you haven't been here long, that automatically means your post have no merit.
    I see it otherwise.
    Some people ARE consistant.............they remain "doom and gloom" about the Packers every year. They think ANYONE that is the Packers GM MUST be an idiot. And if you DARE to back what the Packer Brass is doing, you are a person that doesn't have a brain.
    Oregon, you seem to me to be thinking quite clearly! I AGREE with most of what you write!
    I have almost 5000 posts here, have been here quite awhile, and i don't think it makes me stupid because i see some REAL positives the way TT has handled the Packers so far.
    To go off on Oregon JUST because he's a somewhat "newbie" is LAME! He makes some GREAT points. Just because he doesn't agree with some of you, doesn't mena he is WRONG or a member of the Packer MGMT.

    No, because he's a Packerfan his posts have merit. Exactly the same reason yours do.

    Cheesey, I take a real exception to this. Stating that I or any other Packers fan have been "doom and gloom" every year is speculation. I have been "doom and gloom" because I don't like the way this franchise is headed.

    Honestly Cheesey,with all due respect, this post is the perfect example of why I get so angry

    Don't put things in my, or any other posters mouth. How do you know how I would feel about another GM? When have I called anyone stupid? In fact I don't think anyone here is stupid besides 2-3 people who can remain anonymous. What I see is the TT backers calling everyone else dumb. Perfect example



    Thats uncalled for and very hypocritical. First Packnic rips the people who are critical of TT by calling them stupid for stating they think we know more than the GM, and then states how "big money" FA's are NOT the way to go. Are you a GM Packnic? Are you smarter than Bob Kraft? Luckily, I expect nothing more from said poster.


    Both sides can feel how they want but I will use facts and not and's, but's, maybe's, if's and etc.

    Each side is as bad as the other.

    There's a third group: "Smarter" people who know what you read and hear in the mainstream media is verbal oatmeal fed to fill the masses without providing any substance. This group includes fans who have seen:

    1)The Lombardi years
    2)The Bengston years
    3)The Devine years
    4)The Starr years
    5)The Gregg travesty
    6)The Infante ooops years
    7)Holmgren/Wolf winning years
    8)Ray Rhodes(political correctness trumps Andy Reid)
    9)Mike Sherman(the last winning seasons)
    10)Mike McCarthy

    This same group who understand the current Packer administration is more about "looking good MY WAY-on the cheap" than fielding a championship-level football team.

    The group that understands you don't have to be a GM to criticize a GM, in the same way you don't have to be President of the United States to criticize the POTUS.

    Feel free to join the third group anytime.

    Listen.....he was ATTACKED because he hasn't been here long. Like that automatically means his writting has no merit.
    Nice way to try to twist things around though. You seem to have a real knack for that. You in politics, or the media by any chance?
