    I am not here to question your loyalty as a Packer Fans but come on guys. If the Pack lose out I would look for 2 and 14 next year and nothing better. Lossing is contagious. Look at how long SF, Arizona, Detroit, Texans. The Old days of Tampa and others. Draft picks did not save those teams just as High Priced Free agents wont save the Raiders. Lossing is a team mentality just as winning is. If the Pack says well hey lets lose from here on out then we can get Reggie it would be horrible. Would tell me they dont want to make the team better. Next year will be better with or without reggie bush. Gb IMHO does not have any glarring holes to fill just leaks and there is talent on this team. For the Pack to win the rest or go 2 and 1 would be ideal would give confidence where it is needed

    i am a draft nut, whether we pick 31st or 1st, my favorite day on the NFL calendar...i honestly didn't mind the win last night from a draft prespective--now everyone will shut up about reggie bush, and hopefully samkon gado will shut up everyone else about deangelo williams

    it's not about rooting for them to win, it's about whetehr they won or not...obviously this team is lacking a bunch of things, we lost a lot of games that we could've won, and as a result we're most likely picking top ten

    i put us at 50/50 to win next monday at baltimore, and a loss to chicago and seattle...i'll be rooting for them, but what happens happens

    I haven't rooted for GB to lose. Esp the games I went to.
    But after they were assured a losing season I havn't been pouting all week long after every loss.
    Reggie Bush hasn't been my 1st choice so if they do end up picking 5th or 6th that is ok w/ me.

    I don't care where they draft. My wish is they come out of it with 2 impact players plus 3 or 4 more that contribute as time goes on. That would be an excellant draft.

    hey trom -

    i'm a girl also & i couldn't disagree with packerchick on Reggie more BUT it doesn't mean she doesn't know football. there have been MANY #1 draft picks that have been a bust as we all know - especially the bears - i think that's what she was alluding to. just because she doesn't have 2 heads, don't think she's stupid!!!! :lol: :lol: :comp:

    signed,
    another "dumb" girl, according to trom!!! :wink:

    What matters most to me is that MY TEAM wants to win these games, and I support my team. Some late-season wins will give the Pack some much-needed confidence heading into next year.

    I never want the Pack to lose - but i think the Texans' kicker shanked that tieing FG attempt on purpose ( it wasnt even close ) so they can stay in the running for the top pick .

    If the Texans were trying to throw their games, they wouldn't be so close. They would be getting killed every week.

    I thought the snap from center was to the right of the spot where the holder usually gets the ball. The holder had to make an adjustment and bring the ball back. When he put it down it as off center just a bit and the kicker was already in motion and he was a bit off stride.
    I think Longwell missed a pretty short kick ealier this season that was just like this one.

    Here is the problem. The players and coaches would like to win every game. If they don't want to win every game, I don't want them on my team. Just remember this however, we were a team on the decline with a lack of talent ready to replace our loses during the off season. I was hoping beyond hope that Mike Sherman without the GM duties was going to be a great coach. I was hoping that Ted Thompsons picks would be better than most of us thought they would be. The truth is this: Mike Sherman has failed as a coach. He made a great pick up with Jim Bates and his assistants, but he has failed miserably in keeping his friend Rossely and not replacing him with a quality Offensive coordinator. The free agents signed by Thompson didn't pan out at all. We had a few players hurt granted, but even going back to preseason before the injuries this offense just didn't work and wasn't clicking. So we're 2 and 10 and we're playing our top quarterback with nowhere to go. We win a game that means nothing to the record, but the win may take you out of the race for top draft picks. My point, ok so we won, who cares? But in the big picture having earlier picks in each round of the draft and can change the outlook of this team dramatically if we draft smart. So in the big picture I want the best draft that we can have so that we can turn things around more quickly. That's not being a bad fan that's wanting what is in the best interest of the team. Mike Sherman and his players want what is in the best interest of themselves right now. That too is to be expected. I'm just disapointed from a fan standpoint because I'm caught in the middle of wanting my team to win and wanting the best draft choices we can get and if that means losing at 3-10, I'll take the losses to get the draft choices.

    If they don't rebuild that O-line they will get Bush flat out killed.
