predictably Mike cant see his own shoelases. Trading the has-been (9-7) Favre for the wonderful (6-10) Rodgers was the only right move made. Wrong. Ted Thompson was terrible for the Seahawks and terrible for the Packers. Mike McCaerthy is the only packer coach that had a losing season and still retained in the last 10m years! I'm old enough to remember the sad years. Here we go again.

I agree Marcwojo. TT and MM should have been the first to go. The two of them tore my heart out. For the good of the team and the fans, TT and MM need to go.

Folks, I have lived and died with my idol #4 the past 17 years, even watched all his games this year. It pains me to say this but TT made the right decision for the future of the pack, take off the blinders folks. #12 put is in positions to win more than 6 games this year, defense and special teams let us down way too many times, was Rodgers perfect, no, but for a first year QB he was very good.

The problems with TT go far deeper than just the Favre situation.
