Doubt I can add much to such a knowledgeable group but I lke hanging out with you guys.

Been a wild first four games, eh?

Vikes and Bears fans are pounding their chests right about now but it's a house of glass when you look at the 2nd half schedule for these two teams. Good luck with that(said with as straight of face as I can muster).

With this young Defense I see us coming on at the right time and the Pack being very tough at the end of the year. Especially if Dom trashes the 3 man rush. I mean, c'mon Dom, really? Against Ponder, maybe, but Drew? No way.

Good to be home. GO PACK

Welcome back warhawk! Always good to see an old name around here...

First four games have been...umm, interesting? (to say the least)

Dom has a good group to work with and with time, I think he will realize he can trust what he has and work more than a 3-man rush.

I was wondering what happened to you. I always found you to be a pretty knowledgeable contributor.

I find it kind of cute that Vikings fans are pounding their chests. It's like when your little girl goes off to college and discovers feminism and starts telling you how empowered she is. That's cute. Go Vikings!

da Bears though, I'd take seriously. They're still da Bears so I expect them to completely barf one game in the Playoffs. I don't know why, but besides 1985, that team always finds a way to self-destruct.

I just know I wouldn't want to face them in Chicago in the Playoffs. That's fo shizzle. We'd annihilate them at home.

Welcome back Warhawk.

Great to see you back, one of the must reads of the board.

Whitewater did it again last season, however looks like it may be a little more difficult this season with a loss under their belt already.

This made my day.. seriously, a annoying day just may have flipped.


And yeah.. the season has been wild already, we have had people hit the lows of surrendering the season to returning to the big dance again. And the season has just begun, lol.

The Bears have Carolina, Houston and San Fran coming up so it's not going to be easy, at the same time the Packers have some really tough teams as well. If the Packers beat the colts AND the Texans I'm betting the Packers win the division easily.

Rodgers will need to be very sharp vs the Texans and the defense will have to play well, The Texans have a very good offense I don't think it's quite as explosive as the Saints but it's up there.

Thanks guys,

Even though we all know we shouldn't be 2-2 there is some beauty in this. Unlike last year this team is tuned in to where they stand in a way that brings more of the fighter out in them.

There is no "trap" game sitting out there for this team and until they can get a commanding lead in the North that won't be the case.

A good example is the Houston game Rios mentioned above. We BETTER be 3-2 going into that game. Houston should be 5-0 without much problem with the Jets. Getting to 4-2 is huge vs. going BACK to even at 3-3.

We need that game more then Houston does. Besides, they really haven't played anybody nearly as good as we are as long as we play up to our potential and playing to our potential has become crucial now.

I see the team's focus being better as a result of the 2-2 start and will serve the team well in the effort to improve and string some wins out. Last year we kept winning even though our defense was broke. I think it's harder to get that desire and focus on improving when your winning like that. We never got our backs up against the wall and the problems never got fixed.

So in many ways, especially with an improved D showing up, I like this teams chances better then last years.

As far as Indy goes it's the same thing. We don't have any extra bullets to just shoot up in the air. They have to be prepared to take them all down at this point.

Great to see an old contributor, who was a fine contributor, back again.

Now.. You have been absent without permission!

I sure hope you brought Zero a note from your parents explaining your absence.

Zero2Cool (29-Sep) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (29-Sep) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (29-Sep) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (29-Sep) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
