    When the season started I had the Packers picked as a playoff team as a wild card.

    I watched some of the game last night and the Titans put the hurt on them. At home no less.

    I'm beginning to think Favre has got some injury issues; their defense got stomped on and the Titan receivers and McNair had a good game.

    Is this a team on the decline?

    I love it :headbang:

    Favre has a bruised brain. The defense is in shambles.
    Thats the problem the pack has right now.

    Packer Fans are litterally calling the "acting owner" and asking for Shermans resignation.

    :rofl:

    Bring em on , Lions are going smack em up.

    It was interesting last night. The Packers seemed totally out of synch last night and unmotivated which is not like Favre at all. Although I do understand he had a death in his immediate family so that may explain that.

    Even Madden and Michaels mentioned that the Packers crowd was not themselves.

    They both said they were kind of quiet for a Packers crowd.

    I don't know who they have lost too but something has knocked the steam out of them.

    Favre probably has 2-3 years left in him which is enough to train his replacement. The real question seems to be whether or not Mike Sherman will have a job after this season. The Packers look atrocious.

    Favre put up over 350 with 2 TDs. Sure the 3 INTs hurt and I could care less who won the game.

    But thanks to Favre's performance, my fantasy team kicked major tail this week. :woot

    Favre handed them the game last night and it seemed like Jeff Fisher was trying to run up the score in the second half. The Packers made the tacks look like the Colts last night. Both teams are bad, but I guess the Packers are much worse.

    you know, if my brother in law just died and I suffered an out of body experience after a concussion, I too would look bad playing quarterback against an NFL defense.

    I don't think it would take all that for you to look bad against NFL defense

    One of the announcers stated that Fisher had previously told him that he never 'sits on a lead.' That might explain the appearance that he was running up the score. I do believe he was sitting on the lead the last series but the Pack allowed a score anyway. :twocents:
    I hope our players weren't watching that game and now consider the Pack a gimme.

    To me there are no "gimme" games. Remember the Chargers?

    Something is not right with the Pack this year though.

    I understand about not sitting on a lead, I heard it being talked about at the TOMB and everyone there laughed about it, they said that in the past Fisher always sits on the lead. Anyways, the thing I was talking about was the trick play they ran in the 4th quarter when they were already up by 3 touchdowns. To me it was a little ridiculous.

    I guess Fisher thought since the Packers were playing like it was a practice he'd go ahead and practice that trick play.

    I'm torn about scoring. You see so many teams get ahead and then just sit on the ball and a lot of times the other team will catch up.

    So the theory is you shouldn't sit on it and try to score. But if you do that you are running up the score.

    I don't know. Maybe there is no right or wrong here.

    Budsters Oilers sitting on a lead in Buffalo once. :woot

    Maybe Bud instructed Fisher to never sit on a lead.

    The packers and the Titans are the same. If McNair or Favre go down, or even struggle, then the team looks like ****. I would like to see Indy without Manning.

    I thought Ahman Green would have kept them in this one, but I guess he is in a funk as well.
