(4. a) I concluded it was time to move on from Coach Mike early in their Super Bowl year. I thought the team had tuned him out.


Same. I think the team was 4-4 at the time. I decided I would not root for the Packers until they got rid of this ineffective head coach. That lasted all of 3 days until we won the next game and I was all like "oh mike i can't stay mad at u"

And we're pretty much right back to that point right now.

~ Thinking it was kind of cool that Packers head coach and GM would be the same guy.

~ Thinking it was no huge deal that Mike Holmgren was leaving, I thought it was sour apples and would be fine if he left

~ QB/WR Matt Jones might be the best QB option for the Packers at the time. (Was thinking he might be able to play WR until Favre retired and then maybe stay at WR or switch to QB if he had been practicing it in the offseasons)

~ Getting excited about CB Joey Thomas (the guy drafted the Packers drafted after Ahmad Carroll) I never liked the Carroll pick but I thought Thomas had the physical talent to be a top CB, but looking back on it, I'm not sure if he mentally had what was needed... also I still think Sherman was unfair with them... Carroll would get 3 to 5 PI calls against him and get pulled then Thomas would go in until he got 1 PI and then he got pulled for Carroll and back and forth they went.

~ 2008 Draft in the 2nd round
I was right about Donnie Avery, Brandon Flowers, Nelson (and the Packers picking him) Forte' (and the Bears picking him) but the rest I got wrong), Jordon Dizon.

But I was wrong about most of the rest as far as they would be good or not...

not me. I hated the idea of a GM/HC combo. I thought the NFL had become to complicated to allow one man to so it all even with great assistants. I want a HC pouring over the plays both ours and the next opponent tearing them apart looking for the weaknesses and the strengths of both and devising ways to give us a victory. I want the GM scouring the talent pool and planning who the team should pick up next. Looking at the payroll and trying to figure out a way to keep the quality players that we already have from leaving. I know the assistants do some of this but I want these two guys up to their ears in the process as well. Don't let someone else be the one who is responsible. They should be.

I was sorry to see Holmgren leave but once again I didn't want him to stay if he wanted more control. Just because someone is a good HC doesn't make them a great GM. I had enough on the job training with other people in the front office I didn't want more.

Never thought much of Matt Jones one way or the other. Or Joey Thomas for that matter. So my real failing would have been not knowing enough about them to have an opinion as to their abilities.

1. Having Aaron Rodgers start over Brett Favre was the wrong move.
2. Hiring Mike McCarthy was the wrong move.
3. Trading up for Clay Matthews wasn't worth it.
4. Freeze would be a suitable punter replacement.
5. The Packers would 100% beat the Cowboys in 2007. (I put a bet on that shit!)

I wasn't completely against Rodgers I always said just wait and see if he can do it for a few years and he has done that.


I still don't care for MM, he don't have that killer instinct. He also lacks the fire and intensity.
Ted Thompson I still don't like that will never change.

I was wrong on the whole Collins thing.

I still don't care how the the whole Favre thing went down but I come to realize that it was both parties fault.

As I have been an expat for a number of years (going on 10) late night games and big disappointments have probably scared me more than most. Atlanta at home? yep remember that. 4th and 28? yep remember that. January at home vs the Giants? remember both times.

So hear are mine.
1. Game is getting lots of hype? Those scare me the most.
2. A big lead means nothing we like to let them stay in the game.
3. We will get a great experienced player via trade once every 5-10 years.
4. We will almost always find a way to screw up a sure thing.
5. Losing at 2-6am hurts way more than loosing at 11am (in Alaska 1st game of the day starts at 9am)

1.)Thinking the Pack would never win another Superbowl after Lombardi in my lifetime.
2.)Thinking Rich Campbell would be the franchise QB that would be the one to take us back to the Superbowl.
3.)Tony Mandrich,nuff said.
4.)Thinking Mike Sherman as Coach/G.M. was a good idea whose time had come.
5.)Thinking we should have given,he who's name shall not be mentioned,anything he wanted to keep him in Green Bay.
