I don't know how I feel about putting Bush up against Welker, Moss, Stallworth, or Watson. I believe their offense would eat our defense alive more than what our offense would eat their defense.

The only way to beat them is to score more points. They are looking pretty scary but you are exactly right they havn't played too much scary competition besides Dallas. I will get a better idea of them once they play Indy. If they blow out Indy then you might as well give them the lombardi trophy...

I would think we would have a great shot at representing the NFC if we had a running game. Sombody as productive as Green was, not an LT or a Adrian Peterson, or sombody fantastic but a reliable running back who could level out our offesne.... we will see....5-1 is a great feeling!!

Andrew, the point I was trying to make with the records of opposing teams, is that those guys you mentioned Welker, Moss, Stallworth, and Watson have yet to face a defense like ours. Don't forget the pats put up some big numbers against the likes of Miami and St Louis, a combined 0-12. And against Bufflo and the Bengals, a combined 2-8. Trading Deadline is Tuesday, TT surprised us last year with Woodson.......maybe......

Opps wrong figures, scratch the 0-12, that was Dallas, but the pats did play Jets, Buffalo, and Bengals for a combined 3-13

Im telling you there are tradable RB out there. But wasnt woodson signed in the off season? also the pats your right have played teams that are less then desierable but the way in which they killed them is what scares me the teasm they played dont but a low scoring game is 34points is a little intimadating none the less. Heres a good line i found on SI.com from peter kings monday morning QB a good line by favre whcih was answered in the best way 2 things actually

Goats of the Week

Referee Terry McAulay's crew at Green Bay-Washington, for an overall poor job and costing the Packers two legitimate touchdowns. First, there was a pathetic holding call on right tackle Mark Tauscher, negating one Favre touchdown pass; there was nothing close to a hold on the play. Last year, the officials were told not to call offensive holding unless it was something an official actually saw. Well, there's no way an official saw holding on Tauscher. Never happened. Then, a second Packers TD throw was negated when Bubba Franks cleanly caught a pass in the corner of the end zone with one foot down before getting driven out of the end zone by Washington cornerback Fred Smoot. Incomplete. Insane.

5. Green Bay (5-1). "How in the hell can we be doing what we're doing?'' Brett Favre said via cell phone Sunday night. "We can't put anybody away.'' But what the Packers can do is hang in with good teams and be very tough to put away.

This was a weird game. There was no momentum or rythm to speak of offensevly. I realize Jennings amd Jones are young, but they seemed to be moving slow. If Jennings would have blocked the guy who tackled Lee instead of running into the end-zone, Lee would have scored.(I know we scored right after that play). But it's the hustle plays that gets contagious on both sides of the ball.
I know a win is a win, and I am happy to be 5-1, but I would like to see them bust out of this "offensive funk".

Yeah, I had to run that play back several times and Jennings could have easily got between the defender and Lee. You are correct, luckily we scored on the running play, it seems like our route runners are slacking. I think the bye has come at the right time for the Pack, we are kind of beat up. Denver will be a fun game, with Harris matching up with Walker. Who would have guessed that we are playing Denver on their way down, while the Pack is on their way up?

Maybe Javon is regretting his big mouth right about now! IF he was profesional enough to keep his yap shut, SHerman would have taken care of him during the next season, heaven forbit, he wait 1/2 season to be overpaid.

I have a mantra now and it is something PB said a week or so ago.

This is a magical ride, this is a magical ride, this is a magical ride!!!!

You should have seen the guards look at me this morning as I walked into the office! It was like walking into a funeral parlor!!!!LOL!

One game at at time, guys. One game at a time!

Hope you are all well!

Irony at it's best. I know I am nick picking but I am excited about this season so far. You are right. This is a good time for a bye. Even Favre is a little worse for the ware. He took some shots yesterday.And his arm looked tired with the throws for the ints. Any ways I like the bye week for the team, but it sucks for the fans. Go Pack!!

IF Faves arm is tired after 6 games and a bye would help him out, well we have 10 games left,so we better develop a running game.The last thing we need is for Favre to suffer from a dead arm the lst 3 or 4 games left and maybe the playoffs lord willing, unless you are willing to see ROdgers like I am.
