    The pack has gone from 3-13 to 5-11. Nice

    excellant.

    Once again I will get the chance to possibly see a team with a losing record take the division and advance in the playoffs.

    it could happen.

    Shakespeare couldn't pen a better ending then that.

    Vikings- in flux
    Bears - Until the defense starts with the ball, D cannot win alone. Jones is flying the coop. Benson could be a crip.
    Detroit - well... it IS Detroit afterall.

    Then the Pack...

    One lone gunslinger heading to Boot Hill for his last showdown.

    Awesome.

    I'm just curious if this means that the Packers will take Vernon Davis with the 5th to give Favre a weapon. Probably not though. They'll take AJ Hawk IMO. They need defense.

    Not so much for their division. So for at least 6 games they don't need a lot of defense. ( unless Griese or Kitna blow up... or Johnson finds the Fountain of Youth in one of those thousands of lakes )

    Plus they have the 49ers, Cardinals, and Saints on their schedule.

    The toughest stretch that they have is a back to back against the Pats and Hawks.

    Should be easy enough for them to beat down a 7-9 record and secure a playoff spot.

    now after the playoffs... I start to lose some confidence and things start to get a little hazy! :)

    His offseason retire act has become a joke. I turn the station everytime I hear, is Bret going to retire. I think Green Bay is kicking themselves for taking Rodgers last year, now that they have a shot at the big 3. Thats gotta hurt.

    From what you saw of him last year in the game and in interviews, does anyone else think he's got substance abuse issues again? Poor Packers.

    This is like hearing about Ozzy Osbourne's/KISS's thousandth fairwell tour. Get it over with already and retire.

    Perhaps AJ Hawk can infuse something into that inept defense, but otherwise they will be lucky to win 7-8 games this year. I think it is a shame he is coming back. This team needs to start rebuilding immediately.

    I agree with TheOgre. This is going to be another sad year in Favre's career, simply because the Packers won't have the talent for a winning season.

    He should have finished on a team that has a chance and let Green Bay continue to rebuild. As much as I like and respect the guy, I think this is a bad decision (especially because it appears that his heart's not in it 100%).

    Maybe that's it. He doesn't seem like he's all there these days. I figured he was wrestling with the problems he had a few years ago.

    H-Town stomping once again!

    lol, well at least it takes them out of contention for the #1 overall pick NEXT year. Still top 10 though.

    My take is draft Vernon Davis. Javon Walker does NOT want to be there.

    The fact that he's coming back still doesn't change the fact they have no talent and no chance of making the playoffs.
