<quoted text>Hi eric, GB is clearly the best team in the league right now. I cannot believe the Vikes did not get at least one receiver with deep threat potential, with AP drawing 9 in the box at times and McNabb having a plethora of knowledge in terms of being able to exploit that scenario and make the play action work and taking advantage on the 1 v 1 match-ups, all the Vikes needed was some talent at that position to be more competitive.
Not to mention how handcuffed the defenses are these days with the new rules implemented in the past few years, the league has truly become a Vertical league. There are 5 QB,s on track right now to break Marino
's passing record, yardage wise. You have to have the personnel to take advantage these scenarios and the Vikes do not while GB has the necessary horses as wide outs. I do not blame McNabb at all but I think it is time to get a more mobile guy in there and Ponder should be able to extend plays via his mobility, maybe he can buy enuff time to complete some passes down field in one on one coverage when these D's put 9 in the box!!!!
Hey erie! nice to chat with you again and i hope all is well with you and yours.
9 in the box and Adrian still gets his yards! I ( the whole offseason) wondered when the Vikes were going to sign James Jones ( not that hes a superstar and has dropped some big spot passes,but,has also made some huge catches and he could start for many teams).Of course there were other WR but for whatever reason it just didnt work for Minnesota to land one of them.I do agree 100% a deep threat would have done wonders for Minn not only for a huge gain,but,making more room for AP to run,after all, cant line 9 guys or 8 guys when you have threats in the passing game.You cant shut down AP ( unless the opp. defense had an amazing day and the Minn passing game completely went to shit for 60 Minutes of football).As you can tell,i love AP as a running back.I can remember when Marino retired and the so called experts saying no qb will break Marino's yard record and Favre blew right past it,and Brady and Brees will as well.Peyton Manning is questionable at this point,Neck Surgery of any sort makes me worried! Nick Collins ( GB FS) is in that situation and it will be 6 months or so ( according to Dr.) to tell how long hes gone OR if he will be able to continue his NFL career....Minn is 1-5,,3 of their loses,they had 14 pt leads and lost them and a few more first downs and a few more minutes of possession of the ball and Minn defense that much fresher and they could have won all of them.POINT IS,Minn is not as far away as some would believe.YES,it sucks this year to be a viking fan,but,it will get better very quickly.IMO starting Ponder is the right thing to do.A vet like McNabb on the bench can teach the kid,help him along and Ponder can learn by playing and Minn can use a younger,more mobile qb which can help in every aspect of the offense ( which you mentioned)extending the play,giving WR more time to get open ect.Qb;s cant get hit,WR have a lot less to worry about as many hits have been outlawed and we have seen officials call penalties on many hits and fines handed out for some would consider not dirty hits,but, they were hard hits.I agree with you with GB being the best team in the NFL right now.BUT things do change quickly and you never know.07 NE was clearly the best team and NY came into the SB and beat them,so i take nothing for granted.Like ive said,Minn is closer then many think

Football fans? Or just GB fans? Some of these guys have never even seen the Packers play, except on TV. Hangers-on. GB has a good team, and ya gotta admire them as they are not privately owned, and play outside in some really cold weather, but to hate MN, Chicago and every other place that has a team shows a shallowness that predicts you will turn on your own team when they eventually have a losing season. A football fan you are NOT.

Every football fan knows the Packers are publicly owned. I'd say nice try, but your football ignorance is embarrassing.

It was quite humorous though. YOU rambling on about others not being football fans. Classic!

You hate Chicago because they invented the low-flow toilet and Wisconsin's second biggest exporter Kohler suffered decreased sales and sent Wisconsin's economy spiraling out of control. Your biggest export (cheese) remains strong, cheese makes you crap, craps get flushed down the Kohler. SO Wisconsin's economy is based on shit

What is the ticker symbol? What exchange are the shares traded on? What is the market capitalization? Does the company have a poison pill policy to prevent hostile takeovers? Shareholders eating used urinal cakes does not count as a poison pill policy. If the shares aren't publicly traded I would argue the Packers are owned by a group of private investors, ones that ride the short-yellow bus to the board meeting

Study non-profit corporations. You won't find any of those things with the NRA, UNICEF or Red Cross either. Then get back to me when you understand that the Packers are different than the companies to which you are referring. There are publicly owned for profit corporations and there are publicly owned non-profit corporations. Being different from for profit corporations doesn't mean that the Packers are not publicly owned. Do not be embarrassed by your ignorance. That can be solved if you take the time to educate yourself.

As a matter of FACT, even publicly owned for profit companies are owned by private investors. Again, don't be embarrassed by your ignorance. However, if you choose to remain ignorant, you should be embarrassed.

A total of 4,750,937 shares is owned by 112,158 stockholders none of whom receives any dividend on the initial investment.

The corporation is governed by a board of directors and a seven member executive committee.

Fans have idiotically come to the teamís financial rescue on several occasions, including four previous stock sales: 1923, 1935, 1950 and 1997.

To protect against someone taking control of the team, the articles of incorporation prohibit any person from owning more than 200,000 shares.

This wouldn't prevent an investor group of say 50,000 pissed off Bear Fans forming a LLC buying up to 200,000 shares individually and folding the franchise once they get 51%.

The poision pill provision is once again worthless, except the annual dividend of one used urinal cake per share sent out in advance of the illustrious board meeting held on Kohlers.

I'm curious how the stadium refurbishment came out. Lining porta-potties up along a concourse and calling them sky-boxes is a stretch

Viking fans where do you find people like this. You have some great fans but a fan like this you don't need. He is an albatras around your neck.

Every person that buys a stock option has a background check. even a hint of a bear fan or viking fan purchase is quickly squashed.:)

I once pissed a hole through a urinal cake...it was after 7 straight beers...the amount of pressure and volume to perform such a feat you ask?

Oh, somewhere around 30-35 PSI at a golden flow rate of 8 tbsp per second...yep, melted a hole straight through...it was a urinal donut when I was finished...

Do you know 50,000 Bear fans that want to invest $40,000,000 each? The Packers will gladly take their money, because it is a publicly owned company and any member of the public may invest. Apparently, you are starting to understand. Congratulations!
