I wasn't attacking you personally or anything, I just couldn't believe the tone all across the boards.

I think the D will continue to come on gradually throughout the season. By playoff time it may be of a consistently solid caliber. Six defensive picks and all are nice, but I think a few people's expectations might have been that the problem would be immediately fixed. I'm just gonna try to be patient.

The offense, if healthy, is still really good. I know they're not taking what they can get right now, but I believe it is going to be figured out (and soon). I think they are just yet to find their identity on offense, but when they find it we will be a good offense again. Not as statistically dominant, but good nonetheless.

As for it not being our year you may be right. I made the mistake of writing us off in 2010 though, and I personally don't want to make that mistake again. The season is young yet.

In Ted Thompson, Mike McCarthy& Aaron Rodgers I trust.


I think we have a good team, if you take out a seriously underperforming Finley, and get real accountability from the coaching staff. Every unit had major breakdowns in the 2nd half yesterday. The staff has to get their shit together, and so do the players. I think they are good players, and I'm not quitting on them as a fan, but they are really underperforming. I'll never forget my wife and I giving up after the loss to DET in 2010. Then we lose the next week v. NE. Never thought we had a chance to go to the SB and get the W, but we did.

Our Packers team will have to go on some kind of tear through the NFL the rest of the way. We can still go 13-3, but that is super unlikely. Maybe we finish the season 11-5 or 10-6, and from there, who knows? Can't give up now, but things are not looking good, and there is no harm in stating that which is so obvious.

Yooper this team will get it together. No worries.




That puzzled me this morning too. Too much beer while posting.
But I know what I meant and do believe that.
This team is mirroring their docile kind hearted coach.

I hope you're right about getting it together and deep down I believe you are.
Yesterday after watching my Detroit Tigers pull out game 2 in the ALDS I was on top of the world and then to have the Packers fall the way they did, it was a fall to the depths of hell.
That was hard on this old brain system.

I am hoping Billy Beane finally gets a W.S. ring. So... Go A's.

Good luck my friend. Both with your Tigers and our Packers.

I know you weren't attacking me personally. But I readily admit that I'm one of those guys who over-react. When we win, I think we're the greatest team ever and nobody can stop us. When we lose, we're doomed and we'll probably never win a game again.

Of course, slight exaggeration but you get the point.

Long term though, this is a good team. Ted Thompson is one of the top 5 GMs in the NFL. Mike McCarthy is one of the top 5 play-callers in the NFL. Aaron Rodgers is an elite QB, who is just slow starting this year. I think with Aaron, he's getting too greedy. Maybe getting an All Pro nod and an MVP actually backfired and made him believe he can complete a 40+ yard pass on every play.

This team needs to focus. It also needs a morale boost. And it needs something to play for. It needs hunger. It needs leadership.

The D is getting pressure. We're getting our sacks. But it seems like when our D is awesome, our O sputters and vice versa. We need to play as a team.

This ship should be corrected in the second half of the season. If it's too late, we might have a fantastic finish and the morale boost needed for 2013 at the very least.

I see 2013 as our year. If we win it all in 2012, I'll be extremely happy that I was wrong. But I have a Lombardi or bust attitude. I'm not like Vikesrule who is content with his team just not being in last place.
