    This is very disturbing when you consider that after 6 weeks of preseason and season games the zone blocking hasen't worked. What we do not want to happen is for MM and TT to decide they just don't have the right personel and continue drafting and aquiring people to fit a scheme that may fail. If finally the system does fail the Pack is left with a bunch of square pegs from a failed system and the rebuilding must start all over again. This is scary and remenisent of the 70's and 80's.

    Shame on you IGH, you obviously haven't been around here long enough to know that..

    01. You do not question any TT move
    02. Never reference the 2006 team with the 70's and 80's team.

    This will only bring the Wrath of the TT lovers down on you and you will be branded as "a non-Packer fan"

    Other than that everything you say makes perfect sense.

    Why install a new system when you don't have, and don't try to aquire the personal that is needed to perform the system.

    but Jags also said in article they are plenty athletic enough to get it done..

    It just might take half the season to really get the guys in the right sync..


    Mike Wahle was about to be cut when he played tackle, now look at him...

    Dont just give up on guys after 2 games..

    How are these guys going to get any good at zone blocking when they can't run it live in practice for fear of injuring their own players.
    Game time is their only live action with this system so it kind of cuts down on their chances to make it work properly, especially if they pass 55 times like against the Saints.
