Week 3 2005 Tampa 17, Green Bay 16
The Packers took over the ball with 5:52 to play in the fourth quarter at the 50 yard line. They were in prime position to gain a first down or two and kick a game-winning field goal. Instead, after picking up 2 yards, the gunslinger threw deep toward the end zone and his pass was picked off by safety Will Allen at the 5 and returned 26 yards. The Bucs ran out the clock and won the game.

Week 4 Carolina 32, Green Bay 29
The Packers took over at their own 37 with 1:50 to play, and Favre quickly completed a 15-yard pass to Donald Driver. Green Bay was now at the Carolina 48, and just 15 to 20 yards or so from a decent shot at a game-tying field goal. But Favre completed just 1 of 4 passes for 7 yards on the final series, and the Pack turned the ball over on downs, without getting a shot at a field goal.

Week 7 Minnesota 23, Green Bay 20
The talentless Packers raced out to a 17-0 first-half lead. But Favre and the offense went in the tank allowing the Vikings to pull out a last-second 23-20 victory.

Week 8 Cincinnati 21, Green Bay 14
Brett Favre throwing five interceptions in the final 32 minutes of the game, including picks on four straight possessions in the second half, hijacking any hopes his team had of besting the Bengals.

Week 11 Minnesota 20, Green Bay 17
Brett Favre throws two picks as the Packers again fall to the Vikings on a last-second field goal. The first INT was returned by Dovonte Edwards 51 yards for a Vikings touchdown. The second was picked off by Brian Williams at the Minnesota 29, ending another Packers scoring chance.

Week 12 Philadelphia 19, Green Bay 14
The Packers trail 10-7 in the first half, but move into goal range at the Philly 31 when Favre throws a long pass into the end zone thats picked off by Michael Lewis

The Packers still have a chance to win in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter when Favre throws not one but TWO picks on the same drive: the first was overturned by a roughing the passer penalty with 1:39 to play that put the ball at the Green Bay 44 prime position for Favre to lead a heroic comeback. But just 40 seconds later, on 2nd and 15, the gunslinger once again fired recklessly into the end zone. Favres long pass was picked off by Roderick Hood. Game over

Week 13 Chicago 19, Green Bay 7
On a day in which the Bears offense simply could not move the football (190 yards vs. 358 for Green Bay), Favre still managed to find a way to lose.

His first INT was returned 95 yards by Charles Tillman, setting up a Chicago field goal. Then in the fourth quarter, with the Packers trailing just 12-7 and driving for a game-winning score, Favre threw a pick that was returned 45 yards for a touchdown by Nathan Vasher. Game over.

The most insightful post-game commentary came from Tillman: Its kind of hit or miss with Brett Favre. No sh*t, Tillman.

Week 16 Chicago 24, Green Bay 17
Favre throws four picks in the Chicago rematch, handing the Bears their first season sweep of the series in 14 years.


I hope this wont end up as a fight, but if PEOPLE want to blame Rodgers for last year, then well, Brett gets blame for 2005

Rodgers not performing well in the clutch was way overblown in the media. We were simply terrible at everything, special teams gave defenses great field position, o-line had penalties galore, the defense was poor, Crosby missed game winning FGs etc etc. Aaron had it stacked up against him. For his first season he played excellently dispite this, I guess people just look for something to criticise.

why bring up stuff like this, we all know brett made mistakes but hes a gunslinger and always will be, he won a superbowl for us, should have won a 2nd the following year, he was a 3x mvp, and the most fun guy to watch in the history of football in my opinion, but he is gone and we dont have to compare aaron every other day to him, let it go and stand by aaron the leader of the the pack !!

because I want people to see that Brett did just as bad in situations when people like to say he would have pulled out games in 08

Those games in 05 clearly prove that he can and did screw up


but yeah he won mvp's and got us to 2 SB and won one of them, so his screws ups are okay

thats CRAP

If anything he shouldnt screw up at all with his ability..

Thread Locked : Reason, there is no purpose for this thread other than arguing. Fuck the Brett talk. We have PACKERS ball to talk about.
