As a pure runner.. AP all day..

As a complete back, meaning blocking, rushing and receiving.. I think a argument could have been made about 2 years ago for LT..

Today.. I just don't see another back near his level.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Yeah.

Looks and sounds like AP is earning his dues in the receiving/blocking department. I've been hearing a lot on how he's improved. We'll see by years end, though.

I hope you meant to say Aaron. That's who I'd put my money on.

I would take the opposite approach to beating the Vikings, though. Shut down the passing game. Let Peterson gain 150 yards, or whatever. As long as you prevent him from making the really long runs, he can't beat you singlehandedly.


Heh. Yeah, that's what I meant to say. I think you could tell in my wordings I meant that. Aaron right now is a top 3 QB, Favre is a top 16 QB.


Can i have some of what your drinking Zombie? Top 3 qb? Who do you leave out, Brady, Manning, Brees, Rivers just to name a few?

I think top 3 might be a bit generous. I'd say somewhere between top 7 - 10 easy.

Brady
Manning
Brees
Hasselbeck
Warner

not in that order, but I think those are better QB's than Rodgers.

I don't fall for McNabb, Rothescheeseburger ...

Hasselbeck? I'd take even take McNabb over Hasselbeck. I'd put Rivers in there, which would bump Rodgers out of the top 5, but if he gets in a rhytm like last year, he'll be very close to Rivers.

Anyway, Favre was just a game manager, like a lot of people said before. I don't know if I would put him down there with Trent Dilfer, as Trent was pretty bad even in that season. Favre can still play decently. They're just not unleashing him. When you force him to throw it, he can do some things to you and that's the scary part.

Yeah, top 3 is looking a bit generous. I think we're all in agreement that he's top 10 though, and maybe top 7.

I also hope we're in agreement that Favre is still a top-16 QB.

And I got money on both Aaron and Brett to do well this year. Either of them win a SB and Mrs. Zombieslayer goes on her Alaskan Cruise that she's always dreamed of.

If we can't win the big one, money aside, I'm hoping Brett gets another SB ring just to see the look on your face, and the irony that you didn't win a SB until your most hated player ever joined your team. :tongue3:

The comment we'd hear from Pack fans if the Vikings were to win would be in jest.
And if that were the case:
The Vikings would have won a SB with their hero in one year.. While the Packers won the same amount of SBs in the span of 16 years.

No matter what they were to say, it would be moot.

Actually, methinks we'd be focusing on the "Is Thompson the anti-Christ?" debate again so much that we wouldn't even think of saying such a thing. :)
