Although the Vikings may deserve to be the favorites to win the division, there is no reason to declare that the Packers will not win the division. There is a reason why the games are played. It is because the outcomes are not predetermined. Right now every team is 0-0. Every team has a chance and the Packers have a good chance. I think that the article's author agrees. The article's title is misleading.

There are just so many factors that go into winning a division such as skill, luck and injuries. It is foolish to predict something like that. Right now I think the Bears are really hurting after this game with some good starters on their team ko'd after a physical showdown with the pack. I am thrilled the pack won, but wish the Bears would have stayed healthier so they could help us by beating Minnesota.

It was an old fashion beating, and the Bears got the brunt of it, it was fun watching these two defenses pound each other, but the Pack got the last KO. We don't need the Bears to help us out, we need to take of our own business, and knocking off the Bears is a great start!

You are right. I have to stop having sympathy for the devil. Does this sound better?
We took them behind the woodshed, then gave them a whoopin with the belt (3-4). They needed more after that so we took the buckle (Rodgers) to them :) As far as Minnesota goes, they will get the same!
Go Pack!!

Funny part is Run defense is strong in Chicago and thats going to be Minn bread and butter on offense,if you stop A.P. or contain him and make the old man beat you with his arm,hit him a few times with blitzes ect Chicago can and will beat Minn.I just hope we are not in the position of needing Minn to beat Chicago to help us.
the one way to avoid it is go undefeated in the div.we already beat Chicago and Minn is up in a few weeks.

Hi Eric,
We played and beat a very decent team in our first game. It was kind of a baptism by fire as Chicago was much stronger than they showed in pre-season and wanted this game bigtime. It came down to a very physical battle and we were up to the challenge. I think we were somewhat flat on offense because McCarthy elected not to play his starters in the Tennessee game. I think they should have been played at least a half. Minnesota is very talented. My game plan for them would be to hopefully have Radji healthy and put more emphasis on stopping Peterson than Favre. Peterson needs to get hit and hit hard and pay for every yard he earns. He needs to be gang-tackled and blitzed and PAIN IS GOOD! As for Favre, he needs to be flustered and confused. Everything after that will come naturally :)

Hi Fast Eddie.There is no doubt.load the box to contain AP who will get his yards and put the Vikes in position where BF has to beat us with his arm and whatever happens happens.
Alan Barbre actually played decent at the end when we needed him most,he got eaten alive inthe first half and stepped it up abit in the end,so thats a great thing,he didnt quit on himself and now has 2 games to improve before Minn.
cant wait to see Chad Clifton vs J.Allen,that should be fun to watch. CC Clearly won the first meeting,Allen had a very good game the 2nd time around. Like i said let AP get his 25-30C for 120-140 yrds or so and not let him break any big runs and as i said, hold them to FG,BF INT;s and a few drives on our part and the lead and let BF have to throw and kind of take AP out of the game as much as you can.I think the defense can blitz enough i just wonder if AP is a good blocker on blitzes and how well he picks them up.

eric,
Mark October 5th on your calendar. Monday night under the lights against the Vikes! That's what it's all about! I don't think Detroit will be much of a threat as long as they aren't taken too lightly. I think we can beat Chicago one more time. It won't be a picnic but we should get the job done. So that leaves us and them.
That will be the ultimate road test for us and bigtime game to be in the drivers seat for Da Norte Division. I wouldn't put my money on it, but a win in Minnesota would be huge. I don't think they want to use AP for a blocker anymore than necessary. But he might be forced to block if he can't run and the heat gets put on #4. Well, next Cinci!! I had my laugh last night. On the news one of their cocky receivers twittered a Packer player and told him they will be scoring lots of points. He asked if it was alright after he scored a TD if he could do a Lambeau Leap and experience some Cheesehead Love!! I'd love to see that!!!
Well, time to get the coffee brewing

In my view moving forward, it will come down to the offensive line; can they protect and open enough holes for Grant. They didn't look too good versus Chicago, but many including myself underestimated how good Chicago still is on defense. For as crummy as the Bengals played last year, their defense was decent, so this will be another good test. Rodgers will not last the whole season if we don't get that line corrected and if he goes down we are cooked. Just as I expected, Capers has the defense ready.

Real good points wal. I fully agree with you. I have to give the Bears credit. The way they looked in pre-season and the way we looked I thought we would bury them. We were lucky as hell to get the W. This is one other thing that pisses me off. We know our backup QB situation is really hurting as by evidence in pre-season. Yes, we have a future pro-bowl QB in Rodgers. Brohm totally sucked and was put on the practice squad. After him is Flynn. Flynn is slightly more polished but is too fragile to take a hit and gets totally flustered under pressure. We are screwed bigtime if it comes down to Flynn leading our team. It will be as you said, we are cooked and maybe next year as I like to say! Ya think with Garcia out there that would have been the perfect guy to get in here for a nice insurance policy. The guys a very experienced vet who has been in many pro-bowls. BUT NO, TT and MM think we are in good hands with Flynn and Philly picks up Garcia! Oh well!!

Well they can stack the lines and run blitz all day on AP. But I don't think MM is that stupid since Favre knows GB safetys and corners nuances like the back of his hand. The Vikes offense is much more effective than that of the little Bear Cubs. I am looking forward to the old school beat down Favre and AP are going to put on the pathetic Breen Gay Fudge Packers.

And the Packers know Favre,He will be so excited to beat them and get even with Ted that he will be throwing at anything that moves and the Packers will pick him off and knock down throws or watch throws going over ones head the whole first half.When behind that will push Favre and his ego to try to lead the troops which will lead to more carelessness and some passing yards and drives,it also will lead to more INT;s and a Packer victory.

Take a look at these Michael Vick supporters in action.

Looks like they don't just torture dogs.
Looks like they like to torture White people too.

What if this was your kid?

I hate to say this, but this is a much different Favre than we are used to seeing. One of the drawbacks of living in Minnesota, is that I get to watch every Viking game. The Viking game plan has him working well within their system and managing the game, and make the big throws only when he needs to. He is first in the league in comp. percent and second in QB rating. If the Packer's think Favre is going to beat the Vikings for them, they are going to be in for a huge shock.
I'm starting to get a little nervous, I am really looking forward to how the Packer's rebound on the road next week. The Rams should be a pushover, I think they have only scored 7 points so far this season. It would be a nice game to "right the ship"

Good teams beat the teams they should beat. Occasionally, very good teams do lose to very bad teams. I will give the Packers this loss. However, if they wish to be a good team they can't make a habit of losing these games.

TT and MM clearly have not made the Packers as prepared for the regular season as many people believed. I hope they can fix what is obviously broken. If not, stop to consider what is best for the GREEN BAY PACKERS. The Packers don't need excuses, they need results.

So who was the "good team" yesterday in the following games; Pitts/Chi, Houston/Tenn, NE/Jets....what the hell are you talking about. Looking for anyway to stick-it to TT/MM. If the team doesn't win this season and make the playoffs, they'll probably both be gone so what's your point?

My point is that you don't know the difference between a good team and a bad team. The fact that you need to ask me, proves my point.
