Packers have heart

As bad as this loss was, it wasn't as bad as the NFC Championship OT Loss to the Giants in 2007. Part of it was because we were so close to knocking off the Patriots in the Super Bowl, and part of it was because of how much heart the Packers showed on the road down 31 - 10 in the third quarter in a real life madden game where your D didn't play like it should have. Kurt Warner had the perfect game, and ARodge matched him step for step except for a few mistakes. Even a die hard Bears fan emailed me, "That was one hell of a comeback. Too bad the worst player on the field made the deciding play. It's a shame that Rogers didn't connect on the 1st down play, that WR was as wide open as you can get in the NFL downfield. Maybe a bit more experience will let him throw that with a bit more air where it's a certain catch or pass interference? In the end, Rogers holding onto the ball too long cost the Packers, but the future is bright there, unfortunately (for the bears). I was hoping to see Rogers vs Favre one more time this year. I don't know if Dallas is really that good or has Philly's number, but they look real good on both sides of the ball. Romo still has a case of the yips back there from time to time, he ducks out of throws a lot where someone like Rogers or Warner takes the big hit to make the completion. " Thank you entire 2009 Green Bay Packers Team, you wouldn't go down without a fight, and I appreciate it.

3 Bad Teams

I don't know how good the Pack is yet. I do know that there are at least 3 bad teams in the NFL right now. The Browns, Bills, and Cardinals will all probably have "not-so-good-years". The Packers' offensive and defensive starters rolled through them like the 2007 Pats. ARodge has been out of his mind, and this Dom Capers' 3-4 D has only been making plays. If they're still doing this at the end of October, I'll be a believer.

Brent Favre can do whatever he wants

Seriously. He wanted to play, just not go to training camp. No worries. He loves football more than anything, leave him be.
I wish him well, just not the 2 times this year the Vikings play the Packers. There is no I in team, and TT made the decision last year to put the pack above Favre. Both were definitely wrong, so here we are. Favre wasn't quite sure, and that's ok. TT had to look at the Pack today and tomorrow. I don't blame either.
It's too early to tell how good or bad the Pack will be. I thought they were alright last year, and they ended up a pathetic 6-10.

Brett Favre, Brett Favre, Brett Favre

If Brett Favre wants to come back and play for the Vikings, then he definitely should.  He's earned the right to do whatever he wants.
Common theory is the Vikings are a legit QB from the Super Bowl.  Then they go out and trade for Sage Rosenfels to compete with Tavaris Jackson to start.  I think Jackson could be good in a few years, but we know Rosenfels sucks.  I put their Madden combo averages to about 82, and I'm being generous.  I figure a healthy Favre is a 90, plus what he could add to the locker room.  Either or, I think it's possible they could win 12-13 games next year.

Western Conference Playoffs

Only 2 teams have a shot to beat the Lakers in the West.

11-5.  That would mean the Pack would have to run the table the rest of the year.  While not impossible, not very likely.  

They would have to overcome the loss of Nick Barnett.  Arguably the heart and soul of the D.  As they've shown already, they have the best secondary in the NFL, but the run D is atrocious, thanks to the loss of Cullen Jenkins.   

For me, the maturation of Nick Collins under the tutelage of Charles Woodson and Al Harris has been the best part of the season.  Along with the emergance Tramon Williams and Aaron Rouse.  

My friend SC believes it takes 30 starts for a QB to fully dictate a game.  If so, I'm alright with ARod.  I know this goes against the grain, but maybe he should just take off more, ala early Steve Young.
