I just now saw Dexter_Sinister's post. I'm glad I'm not the only one to whom it's obvious that the facile idea that the Packers were overmatched by the "Greatest Show on Turf" is simply false. Not only did the Packers have an excellent chance to win that game, they should have blown the Rams out. The offense moved virtually at will against the Rams' defense. The Packers' defense all but stifled the Rams' offense on a number of series. Moreover, Kurt Warner was injured and did not perform well. The problem was that Brett Favre kept throwing the ball directly into the hands of Rams' defenders, often with no receivers whatsoever in the vicinity (only a couple of the INTs were deflections). Had Favre played anywhere close to his normal standard, the score wouldn't have even been close.

Ah, well, I'm beating a dead horse.

We still can't talk about Rodgers without bringing up Favre?

TIME OUT.

Have you ever sat in a bar with a bunch of buddies talking football?

The natural flow of the conversation is so great. It moves, it flows,changes directions, and it gives the original conversation continued life.

This is what is so great about Kevin's web site. This thread is just like a conversation in a bar with a bunch of buddies talking around a table full of beer and two plates of nachos.

I personally have no challenge with it getting off topic or bringing up Brett. It is the natural flow of the conversation. The same way it would be in a bar.

This is a damn good site.


LOL. Funny you mention that. That's where I got all my arguing ability, at bars. It started with Joe vs Steve.

I really don't want a Brett vs Aaron. I want Aaron to be better and most importantly, to lead us to get more Lombardis than the Cows.

I'd rather have this Brett vs Peyton.

Rock - You're a smart guy, but you're wrong on Brett vs Peyton. Brett's better. The thing is, I'd just rehash what RedSox says. Peyton's had a better OL his entire career. Brett had an elite OL with Mike Sherman but he's also had some pretty bad lines. He took a lot of hits he shouldn't have taken because of his bad lines.

Sherman also had no depth at all.

Now, there's a reason why the Colts management is considered the best in the NFL. No, not among the best, but the best. They consistently field good teams for Peyton to have a shot at winning it all. The thing is, Peyton lets them down time after time.

The only time Peyton has won it all was because of Wrecks Grossman. If anyone doesn't believe me, watch the freaking game again.

And yes, it's a shame with Brett Favre and Reggie White on the same team we only got 1 SB. Partly because the Cows of the 90s were some of the best teams ever (dynasty).

So back to what I said originally - I hope Aaron helps get us a bunch of rings so this will be a non-issue. I hate debating this sober.
