Then we will see what we will see. So live it up now, I guess. lol.

If it wasn't for the punt return, the Packers would have lost.

I know the blind homerism is rampant now, but this team has a ways to go before they can be ranked with the elite, imo.



I don't see anyone crowning this team -- I see people expressing joy and relief that we have a competitive team, especially since folks like you have been crowing about how we're barely a Div. II NCAA team w/ Aaron at the helm.

Minny's DBs aren't up to par w/ the best in the league, but if you're trying to claim now that they don't have a good defense, all that does is expose your own bias (against this team -- why, I don't know, but whatever yanks yer chain).

It's a good team, with a good QB. I'm not going to say they'll win ___ games, because there's no way to know that -- I do feel confident that they'll be competitive throughout the season, though. Very confident.

Waaaah Waaaaaaahhhhh Roddy.


All I'm saying is that the game was a lot closer than you think.

I (and my fingernails) fully realize how close it was there at the end, believe me. :lol: I do think that we outplayed them, but also had far more mistakes (i.e. big penalties) than them.
I'm happy that we got out of there with a W against AD and that defense with that many penalties, and I saw plenty of reasons to feel confident about the team as we move forward and clean some stuff up.

I will say this. I don't know if we would've won this game with Favre.

Yes, it was a close game. We know this, evidenced by the complaints many have expressed that they shouldn't have run 3 heavy set running plays in a row on that last drive. The Jets/Miami game was close, too -- and I would hope you realize that Miami isn't anywhere near the team Minnesota is.

But, we also WON the game, as did the Jets. And when it comes time for the playoffs to roll around, wins and losses determine who gets in, not style points or the margin of victory.

The rest is all sour grapes on your part -- whatever axe you have to grind against the current team is clearly stronger than what actually occurred out on the field last night.

There were some good things about the Packers last night.

And some not so good things.

We would have easily won this game with Favre.

It really wasn't. First off Rodgers should have thrown 2 TD instead of one if not for some bad breaks. And I thought not taking one shot at the end zone before the half was bad move and then the missed field goal. If not for some stupid penalties and what not this game could have easily ended up a Packers blow out. Minny has a top D in the league. The D-Back weren't bad either, they played pretty tight with our receivers and we didn't create a whole lot of separation from their DB's, only on a select few plays. I'm not sure what you were watching. The mistakes were a bit much, both on O and D. But that shows how good this team really is.

I'm sure we could have, but what's your point? Maybe he would have pressed and threw 2 picks? That's always a possibility as well.

I say we lose it with his lack of mobility and a few floaters. Gut feeling, just like yours that we easily win it.
