The lines in Vegas dropped 2 points when his retirement was announced, he's a factor. I think teams would rather face Tarvaris than Favre.

John Q, the only problem the packers have is that under Rodgers THEY HAVEN'T WON A PLAYOFF GAME. So these lofty predictions that they are going to be SB condtenders or even have any depth into the playoffs is a joke. Unless they bought some new offensive line that I didn't hear about, expect another 50+ sacks on #12.

They allowed 13 sacks in the final 8 games and went 7-1, I believe they figured out the o-line problems LAST year. BTW they also added Bulaga for Depth, AR is gonna have a BIG year. Those are the facts. They picked up Tauscher and Clifton last year and drafted Bulaga, those are the new players they added since week 7 LAST year, but of course everyone hangs their hat on those first 40 sacks when GB started 4-4, do you see how the problem has been solved now?

Did you read the post that I replied to Eric? The post said that Brett favre was a non-factor when playing the Pack this year. You can't state the Pack is the best team in the division until you beat the best team in the division. The vikes beat the pack twice last year,clearly the better team. That's my point. It has nothing to with the bears record.

Thats true,but, if Favre does return,it doesnt Mean Minn is as good as last year or the vikes will sweep GB again. Yes they were better last year for sure,but only a game better which can be made up.

Of course not, but it can happen again. The pack was 6-10 the season before and turned it around. The Bears might also beat the vikes twice this year. It's a new season and things change fast in the NFL. Martz's new teams do great the first season, the Bears just might surprise you.

Yeah I saw how those 10+ year veterans that have been in playoff situations before lay a big egg and allow 5 sacks in the Arizona playoff game. They need to spend some cash on top O-line players. You think Bulaga is going to step in and cover the always injured Clifton? I wouldn't want to be Rodgers and have that rookie covering my blind side. I can picture Jared Allen now, running over Bulaga and hitting Rodgers so hard in the back he gets whiplash..hahahaha.

The Bears will not surprise anyone, they just don't have the depth and talent that Minn and GB has, bottom line.

Yes and AR still put up 400 yds and 3 TD's, it wasn't the offense that was the problem, they almost made a miraculous comeback. Speaking of J. Allen, of his 15 sacks or so, 8 came against the worst line in the NFL at that time, he was average at best against good LT's, and he didn't face Clifton last year. Wishing injury on a player will not get you any respect around here, that is pathetic.

they say Clifton is healthy at this point and Colledge is at this point the LG.Colledge sucked at LT but of course he didnt practice at LT either.I would almost want the Packers to practice and play Bulaga at LG and practice COlledge at LT so if Clifton gets hurt we have some experience there.OR id like to see Tauscher play some LT and we have TJ Lang who is more then capable of playing RT and replace him.

experience i mean a veteran like Colledge who has been in the NFL for a few years at LT and or LG and has been in the trenches, not a rookie who has never played there or in the league yet.

That is also true,but, the bears will have to get out quickly esp if Minn and GB start 4-1 ect and with a new system,im not sure the Bears offense is capable of it ( getting out quickly )

Did I say I wish Rodgers gets hit and hurt, no! I said I could see that happening by sticking Bulaga on LT protecting Rodgers back. That is why I said they need to drop some coin and get him protected. It's pathetic when people try putting words in your mouth. Numbers don't mean anything without wins, especially in a playoff game. Great, Rodgers put up 4000+ plus his first 2 seasons. And it obviously was a problem with the offense, interception, fumble, sack, missed field goal, sack and fumble for a td. These are all ends of offensive possesions in that game. But your right, the offense had nothing to do with it.

You started to laugh when you mentioned AR getting whiplash, you were just kidding? I would not even mention that about any player, these guys play hard and to lose any star in the NFL hurts the game all around. No matter how bad I wanted to see Minn lose against New Orleans, it bothered me to see BF get hit like that, I felt really bad for him. I don't think putting words in your mouth was too far fetched.
