It's kind of embarrassing actually.

I take it you're a Bills fan.    If so, I kind of feel for you.    I'm not sure what it would be like to be a fan of a franchise that has basically given up.

After all, if your last two coaching hires are Dick Jauron and Chan Gailey, and you enter the season with Trent Edwards as your starter, not once, but twice, that tells me that the ownership and front office is basically mailing it in.

Too bad, Buffalo fans deserve better.

Buffalo needs a QB, another WR to compliment Lee Evans, and an upgraded O-Line.  That is a lot, but if they can work on it, they can be contenders.  They have a GOOD defense and running game.   Any one of their three RB's could start for any other team.

Why they're not trading Lynch is beyond me!   confused13.gif  confused13.gif  confused13.gif

I'm not sure that Buffalo can get what they want for Lynch.     He has some character issues and has been suspended once, so whoever acquires him would be taking a chance.    He hasn't really outperformed Fred Jackson in Buffalo (at least IMHO) so he would only be an upgrade for teams that are weak at the position.  

I don't think he'll end up in Green Bay because I don't think Thompson would take on such a character risk unless there was significant upside.    And I don't think that Green Bay would be a good location for him off the field either.

Agree 100%

If the Packers do make a move, it won't be soon.  They'll give Brandon Jackson at least the next two games (Bears, Lions) to prove himself.

Don't look for Jackson to have much of a showing against the Bears.  They have the #1 rush defense in the league right now.  They have allowed 56 yards rushing in two games, and are allowing 1.4 yards per carry.  Brandon is going to have a very long night next Monday.

Playing against the Lions and the dysfunctional Cowboys, that's not saying much!!  Da Bears needed a miracle to beat Detroit, and the Cowboys beat themselves.  

Stats don't mean squat after TWO games....or even 16 games.  

WINS are all that matter.   GO PACK GO!!!  1022.gif  1022.gif  1022.gif

ILSnwdog, hows about a friendly wager on the outcome of the Packers v. the Bears?

I say 24-14 Pack.

You can provide any stipulations you feel are necessary.  blush4.gif

Well, boys and girls, I think it's safe to say that the Packers beat themselves tonight.  Hopefully they'll learn from the experience....!!

They got lucky 2 out of the 3 weeks... Packers beat themselves last night, and so did the Cowboys when the Bears faced them...

I'm not too worried, just have to clean up their game.

18 penalties for 152 yards.....who saw that coming? confused13.gif wtf.gif

Bears getting all the breaks right now but it will catch up to them because I still am not sold on them being that good.

The Bears aren't that good.  Beating Dallas and the Packers looks great on paper, but anyone who saw those games knows the Cowboys and Packers beat themselves.  Bears will finish around .500.

As said, it's pretty obvious the Pack beat themselves, but a loss is a loss.  I'm just glad this meltdown was so early on and they can take this opportunity to learn from playing like shite.

That's classic Bear football - don't win the game outright....just take advantage of the opponent's screw ups.

The Bears' special teams are good, but their offense and especially the defense are overrated.  They will not win the NFC North.

Packers 28, Lions 26

Charles Woodson returns an interception for a touchdown in the Packers' hard-fought victory over the underrated Lions.  Woodson showed why he was the 2009 Defensive Player Of The Year; he was all over the field, tackling RB's, breaking up passes,  and getting a pick-6.  Although they were outgained by the Lions in yardage and time of possession, the Packers showed great resolve by securing the game late in the 4th quarter.

A nail-biting victory for sure!!
