I feel like I’m listening to a broken record. Except when this record plays, it’s only after the Green Bay Packers lose a game. For some strange reason, I never hear this record after wins. So it’s been a while that this song has played. The Packers won four straight games before losing to the [...]

Don't forget about WINNING games without Cobb and Jones for what, two weeks? And Finley for a week and a half?

injuries happen. That is nobody's fault (unless it is due to not properly stretching. ;)
Not having the proper backups when injuries occur can be Uncle Teddy's fault. The disclaimer is you can have quality backups 4 deep at every position. They do need depth at the the key positions. QB is certainly one of the key spots. Ted has failed monumentally here. Has for years but it didn't bite him in the butt until now.

Losing one game with a backup QB that was not lost exclusively because of the backup QB != Monumental failure. Give Seneca at least a full (shorter due to the Monday night game) week with the starters before proclaiming failure.

It is my opinion. I am waiting to see if I am right (I hope not.) or wrong. I don't have to wait 3,4,5 weeks before I give my opinion.

I'm not sure if I like the idea of blaming injuries. Its like blaming the refs. Acknowledge your teams failure on the field and move on.

The Bears were without Cutler and Briggs and Melton and a few other guys and they won the game.

All teams have injuries and while it is great to win despite them blaming them for losses is not much more than whining and making up excuses and we all know how much we hate it when fans of other team whine and make up excuses.
I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

The one flaw with your injury statement about The Bears is that it was probably a + for them that Cutler missed The Packers game, given his history against The Pack. Laughing Laughing

He is always good for 2 or 3 picks when Playing The Packers.

I do agree there is no sense in whining about injuries, not gonna change a thing.

Just gonna support the guys who are on the field this week and hope they have enough to win.
Enjoy the ride – It kicks and just keeps on kickin’.

I like Seneca better than Harrell.

Yeah, I thought of that. He was probably ready to play
last Sunday and Tressman looked at his record against the Packers and said why don't you sit this one out.

Ted's never been anywhere near perfect, nor has any other GM. However, I still wouldn't trade him for many other GM's in the NFL. The guy consistently puts a unit together that has a chance to win every week, and was looking like a true Super Bowl contender before Rodgers went down. That's the results of a very good general manager.

If Aaron Rodgers can come back healthy relatively soon and the Packers squeak into the playoffs (which will probably be the case), the Packers will be poised to make a deep run, and could very likely win another Super Bowl. It could be better, sure, but other than the injuries, it's hard to complain. There's not many teams, if any, I'd rather have than the Packers, especially now that it has one of the best rushing attacks in the league.

My contention is that the Packers overall other than QB are a well below average team. Ted Thompson made them that way. Aaron Rodgers made up for a whole lot of mediocrity - O Line, much of the defense, RB until this season, etc.

You could say that Thompson was delinquent and got away with it having Harrell as the backup. However, instead of upgrading, he severely downgraded with Seneca Wallace - and make no mistake, Wallace is total crap even compared to Harrell.

I would love to find out Sunday afternoon that I'm wrong, and Seneca Wallace is capable of a decent game, but I just don't think that is possible. All the practice reps, all the designer gameplanning, etc. ain't gonna make up for his non-NFL arm, his lack of height, and his lack of speed - supposedly his only strength, but it sure didn't look that way.
