Anyone is better than Bush? Then why didn't TT sign someone else alot sooner? I guess you're saying TT doesn't know what the heck he's doing. I agree.

I hear this guy started a number of games last year while Champ Bailey was recovering from injury. He had an injury himself this year so we will see. Bush is terrible in pass coverage, but they say he's suppose to be a good special teams player, but if he is then we really have sorry players on protection. I just don't see it with Bush like many fans have written on a number of threads. I still don't know what TT/MM see in this guy.

Yes Bush has been good on Special teams, but do you know who got beat on the go ahead TD in the Bucs game? Yep, J Bush. I think if the line and the LB's continue to pressure the opposing QB's we'll do just fine.....I hope.

I agree. All Packer fans have hope. You obviously lack confidence in TT's decisions. So do I. We need to hire a GM that will give us more than merely hope. We need a GM that makes decisions that can give us confidence.

Well, we'll see. With the trade deadline past, this time of year you have to take what you can get. Here's hoping that Bell can get the job done.

I've already made my position clear on Mr. Thompson and Mr. McCarthy, and since Mr. Murphy has made it clear that no changes are imminent before the end of the season, I'm not going to elaborate on it any more. Once the season ends, they are fair game though. For now, I'm just hoping that we can pull this season out and make it into the playoffs, though I want the Packers to earn their way in and not just "suck less than the other wild card contenders".

Hopefully, Mark Murphy is keeping his search on the down low. There are apparently a number of other teams currently starting conversations with available candidates. I hope the Packers don't miss available opportunities simply because Mark Murphy chose not to be as diligent as other teams.

Well, I can pretty much assure you answerman that if this team were to make the playoffs, chances are TT/MM are not going anywhere. Sorry that may be a disappointment to many who dislike these two, but who in their right mind would force them out under contract for a few more years after taking their team to the playoffs??? Every year only twelve of 32 teams makes the playoffs, so that is no small accomplishment. Every game they win is "earning" their way in. I like what MM is doing as far as running more and going with the short passing game. Capers has had the defense playing much better than even the 2007 season. Losing Harris is the real killer to me. He got beat a few times, but the Woodson/Harris combo is the best in the league I feel. Moving forward we will see what Williams does. Picking up Bell was a good move under the circumstances.

Williams did pretty good last year in the 4 games he started in place of Harris. The Pack went 2-2 and he had 3 interceptions so in some ways, he has already proven himself.

Who in their right mind would force out a GM after making the playoffs? The PACKERS! That is exactly what the Packers did to Ted's predecessor. And he won more games and made the playoffs far more often than Terrible Ted. Making the playoffs was no excuse to accept a poor performance from our previous GM and it is no excuse to accept TT's failure now. Sorry to disappoint those that are in love with our loser GM.

I liked the fact we had the short passes working on Sunday also, that was breath of fresh air!! The O-line played extremely well, and if they keep that up, the Packers have just as good a chance as anyone. The 49er D is a very good bunch of players, I was very pleased with performance on Sunday, now if they can keep it up is another story, there is a lot of football left.

Tramon will be just fine, he is a very atheletic player. He definitely has proved himself. The loss of Kampman's pass rush will be a major concern, he was starting to get comfortable in his role, that loss is bigger than losing Harris, just my opinion.

These past two weeks, we have beaten two quality opponents. MM is placing more importance on running the ball and we seem to be more focused on short passes with the hope that our WR's can break one now and then. Also, having Tauscher back is helping the line as Grant is getting his yards. Brad Jones is a guy I think can do the job at OLB to replace Kampman. He did an excellent job in the Dallas game, so I think we are fine there. Williams is ready, so I am confident he will do the job. This Bell guy might turn out to be our 3rd CB for the remainder of season. The fact that he has started a few games works in his favor.

Well hopefully these past two weeks has helped AR confidence also, not to many QB's in the league would be 6-4 with all the sacks he has taken and he is partly to blame on some of those. I just can't believe how well the line has played these past two games. I don't know if we just matched up better against Dallas and San Fran, but I am starting to get a little excited about the hopes for this season, but I'm not getting too confident just yet. I am starting to think that TB game was a lesson learned. I hope we come out with the same intensity against the Lions.

Yes and Woodson got beat for a TD last week, so maybe we should get rid of him, huh? Devin Hester's done all right on special teams but can't cover or play wide reciever. Maybe Chicago should get rid of him? Wil Blackmon, same deal (of course we don't have to get rid of Blackmon, he's on IR more than he's active). Never mind we passed on several premiere young corners on draft day the past two years, settling for Pat Lee and Brandon Underwood. But we've the impossible to cover Jordy Nelson on our team!

Jarrett Bush: double digit tackles on special teams (50 total). Plays corner or safety. Has played in every game since 2006. You're picking on a guy who has defended just 2 passes this season! Why don't you pick on the great Matt Giordano, who we got from the Colts and has contributed--? Zip. Bush is one of the best gunners in the league. And he's filling in. Giordano's doing nothing. Mason? Seen him lately? Bush is only getting burned because he's playing. Those other bums (tt signees) aren't doing squat.

There is no disputing that when it comes to the Green Bay Packers, the player the fans most love to hate is cornerback Jarrett Bush. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers may be picked over more, but no one is scorned more than Bush. It's not even close.

There are the penalties - 18 in 56 games as a part-time player since he was signed before the 2006 season after being waived by the Carolina Panthers in training camp.

There are also the poor ball skills as a defensive back that led Bush give up more than his share of big plays and touchdowns. On Sunday against the 49ers, Bush surrendered a 29-yard reception to tight end Vernon Davis when he failed to get his head around and play the ball.

And then there's the bad luck in big spots. Like the punt late last season that bounced off Bush's leg that set up a touchdown by the Chicago Bears. And the fumbled punt he failed to pick up (and not smother) with just over two minutes left in the 2007 NFC Championship game against the New York Giants.
So in a sense, Bush is almost the Charlie Brown of the Packers. You want to root for the guy. But as hard as he may try, the ball always seems to be just out of reach. Or yellow flags are thrown.
In Bush's defense, he converted from wide receiver to cornerback as a junior in college. And the Packers have made him wear a lot of hats. Not only does he play on all the special teams, but he's been asked to learn safety as well.

Good point; I had forgotten about Giordano and Martin....what contribution have these guys made? Kinda makes you wonder what will happen with Bell. I hope I'm wrong and Bell plays well. These other two pickups haven't done all that much yet. I still don't have much confidence in Bush playing CB, but he may be our best option. There's a big drop-off after Williams. Blackmond and Lee were suppose to be the guys, but neither has been that dependable. Come to think of it, TT hasn't drafted a decent CB in five years.....Woodson and Harris aren't gonna play forever.
