Poor puker fans... Crap on your Hall of Fame QB and he goes onto a 8-3 recorded with the Jets. Last night the Saints destroy you on national TV showing what loser clowns the team, fans and organization is. You reap what you sow cowards. Go Farve!!!

Also Randy Moss is still scoring touchdowns and the Slackers could have had him for a 4th round pick. Nice moves Packers hope you enjoy your rotten team for years to come!

Even more entertaining was the beat down the Pack put on the Bears.

Well Proball, it all comes down to the last four games, games without the WWC in the middle of our defense.
So, now my predictions are that the Packers will make the playoffs this year. Minnesota will more than likely lose 3 out of 4, and Chicago....well I think they already made their bed.
I will give credit to Rodgers this year, he took some devastating hits only to come right back, and actually has very good numbers.
The fall of your defense is the most puzzling, especially after last year. Anyway, if the Vikes somehow can win two of the last 4, we should be in but I'm not holding my breath. Chicago will have a warm welcome for the Pack in the windy city, that is the only game GB will lose IMO.

Hey 40,,,,Kevin and Pat Williams suspended for steriods? Man that hurts! Not only your chances but 2 men 350 or more on an agent used to hide steriods? IMO it was a weight loss agent,but,its considered a steroid or an agent to cover for steroids.
You are right.although im thinking Chi is in good shape and is prob playing better then the Packers.IF the Packers pull it out in CHicago,they will still have to run the table and if we beat Chi. and the bears go 3-1 we are tied and the Packers have the tie breaker,but Minn onlyh has to win 3 of 4,if they win 2 or 4 they are tied or all 3 are tied and if thats the case,who tgets the tie breaker between Chi and Minn? or who get the 3 way tie breaker?

my best to your and your family!

Hi Eric, it's been a long and wacky season and that was just the pre season LOL. The Williams' received a restraining order and can report to the Vikings facility tomorrow for practice. The judge said it was one of the hardest cases he has heard in 23 years or something to that effect. They are still not approved to play Sunday yet though. The NFL seems to think they have a slam dunk case here, maybe they do, but the Williams' are testing that theory.
We should find out soon as to what will happen with these two.
A couple of observations about GB, and mostly Aaron. He has impressed me with his arm, and his toughness is no longer in question. After throwing that pick against New Orleans, he had the hit of the game along the sidelines. The comeback against the Panthers was also impressive, it's just that the defense couldn't hold it. The Julius Peppers hit was a big hit also, and Aaron shrugged that off pretty quickly.
Anyway, this situation has given both Green Bay and Chicago hope.
I was almost hoping that the Vikings would resign to the fact that these two would be gone for 4 games and rally behind the backups and still make the playoffs, but Pat and Kevin have decided to fight it.
Well, it's down to four games, and my prediction is that it will go down to the last weekend before we crown an NFC North Champion.

The best to you and yours Eric.
