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.


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.

+ 1
I will take an ugly, woeful, lucky win over a solid, well played, they shoulda won (tough luck) loss any day of the week. Esp Sundays.

He beat 'em. Twice.

But this is not last year. It's 2008, and we're up 1-0, thanks in part to a good performance by our current starting QB.

No reason to compair the two. Last year is dead and buried. This year's Vikings team is a lot better than the 2007 version. Esp on defense

You really think that's a straight up comparison? We didn't hurt ourselves nearly as much with penalties last year, iirc. Plus we had the ball for more possessions because Bollinger was their QB. And the Vikings DB's thought they were practicing a tip drill when Favre threw up one of his gifts and they both batted it to Ruvell in the endzone.

We disagree. No big deal. I will say that a win over the Vikings is more impressive than a win over the Dolphins.

Well, I'm just bummed the refs called back that brilliant TD to Driver. Driver's my favorite Packer, and his day from a fantasy perspective would have gone from mediocre to good.

Oh well. Things happen. I predicted a blowout, but it was closer than I thought it would be.

What matters is we had a W and no injuries. And I get to change my sig file. :)

Not only did we have no injuries, but some of the guys I was worried about (Grant, Pickett, Hawk) looked solid! Hopefully the team is even healthier next week.

Guess 14-3 isn't good enough for you, eh?

Doubt Rodgers will do that this year....

Who's talking about the season record? Man, you're really defensive that someone suggested Rodgers performed better than Favre would have, eh? Is that why every post is negative after a division win in the kid's first start?

You doubted he'd play well in last night's game, too. You were wrong.

I'm going to go ahead and say I'm not terribly worried about your predictions.

No, not really.

I just figured it out. You are the guy that Tony Kornheiser was talking about last night that when he said the fan (he made a mistake when he said "fans") would say that Brett would have gotten a 1st down when GB had a 1st and 33 on their own 9 yard line. I thought Korny was being stupid as usual. Now I know better he was talking about you.

Did you see that 2nd TD Favre threw on Sunday?

I think the Jet fans value, understand, and appreciate what Thompson (and many Packer "fans") have foolishly thrown away.

You just may come to understand it by the end of the season, but I doubt that you would come to such wisdom.

By the way RB, if you are going to count the Seattle win you must count the Giants loss. Their record was a darn good 14-4 last year. One that even Brett did not think he could improve on this year.

Hahaha... the floater? 5 out of 10 times that's an incomplete pass, 3 or 4 times it's a pick. Even Favre said he thought his guy had no chance in hell at catching it. It was a fourth down throwaway and he got lucky.

Sigh.

You just don't get it. The only people who are still playing the "Favre Vs. Rodgers" game are people like you. Personally, I'm thrilled he's playing well in NYC -- it'll mean a better draft pick for us, and if he pulls it off he'll be seen as THE best ever, instead of one of the best ever.

I'm also thrilled that Rodgers is playing well, because I'm a Packers fan, and he's our QB.

The two things aren't mutually exclusive, except to people who've overly-internalized an event that had absolutely nothing to do with them.
