People may over look a loss as being a worthless game. But its really not in the pre season. You can still take a lot away from a pre season game. But none are really meaningful as far as wins and losses.

I understand that it's still the preseason and blah blah blah, I get that. A win isn't something you need in the preseason, but I am not going to act like a win is completely worthless at this point. Yeah, I think playing well should be a priority, and this team can play well enough to win, I believe that. The team should feel like this is a must win game. The team should believe every game is a must win game. Any time this team is on the field, they should be out there to win. I'm not saying they should play the first team for the whole game, but give these guys something to play for. Preseason or not, no one likes to lose, right?

I hope to see the offensive line improve their play, brandon jackson to pick up blitzing lb'ers and actually make a cut ad run trough a hole. A-Rod trow the ball away instead of being sacked four times in thirty minutes...if that all happens, we may see a packers victory.

If the Packers were to finish 0-4, it would mark just the third time in club history in which they lost every exhibition game. The pro-Favre faction would be crowing, the pro-Rodgers crowd might be back-tracking and the confidence of a young team could be threatened.


That's ridiculous in every way except for the confidence of the team part.

It's the preseason. EVERY year, people talk and talk about how meaningless the preseason is as an indicator of the regular season. EVERY year, articles ignore it because they have nothing else to say this time of year.

The sad thing is people will take shots at the Packers at any chance they get now. Whether it'd be justified or not.

Very true. The thing is, we could have very well had the same results in our last two games with Brett as QB. The difference is, we all know Brett wouldn't play 16 games like that. We all hope Aaron Rodgers doesnt, but we don't "know" he won't.
