Well, Skins, here's your victory - all gift-wrapped and pretty.  Compliments of the Green Bay Packers..... angry.gif  angry.gif  angry.gif

Coach McCarthy and his staff have LOTS of soul-searching to do after they threw away a potentially easy victory.  Even when the run game was there for the taking, Coach kept on passing, passing, passing...not even 3-and-outs and QB sacks would keep him from his passing, passing, passing.... 062802puke_prv.gif

The thing that pissed me off more than anything is wasting precious SECOND HALF timeouts for a freakin 5 yd delay of game. So-the-f-what?? Those 2 wasted timeouts could have made the difference at the end of the game.

I'm tired and crabby, thanks for ruining my weekend you idiots! (ok, mostly just big Mike)

Ya know, I don't have a problem with losing fair and square.  If the other team outplays you, then kudos to them, and no hard feelings..... smile.gif  

But losses like this one and the loss to da Bears drive me batty!!  banghead.gif  They are CLEARLY superior to the other team, but their frequent mistakes, penalties, dropped balls, and HORRIBLE PLAY CALLING give the game away....

So, what do you Packer fans think of starting Rodgers coming off a concussion in this week's game against the Dolphins (nonconference) with the showdown vs the Vikings coming up next week?

I think they should sit him for one week to get him fully healthy for the Vikes.   Then again, I'm a Dolphin fan so my opinion might not be completely unbiased...wink.gif

Well, if he's feeling fine, not showing any symptoms, and he's passed all the tests, then there is no valid reason to sit him.  

Ya can't play scared; Rodgers has said so himself.  Any player can get his brains scrambled on any play at any time.   wacko.gif

I wish your last statement wasn't so accurate.    The more I find out about concussions, the guiltier I feel for enjoying the game so much.    These people (albeit willingly) are sacrificing years off their life to play.  

The more Mike Websters, Andre Waters, Earl Campbells, and John Mackeys there are, the harder it gets to justify my "fanhood".

I don't like it. As a football coach, we are taught by medical experts that it takes a week after all symptoms are gone for the brain to heal.

Not only that, but if they didn't stupidly waste timeouts and could have gotten a couple yards closer for that last kick, we would not be talking about Rodgers' concussion....  angry.gif

They should have been taking a knee in those last minutes of regulation.

No running the ball in the 2nd half.
All pass = incompletions = no running time off the clock
Defense always on the field
No keeping McNabb off the field

But no - they gotta keep Rodgers happy and pass, pass, pass....and then he gets his brains scrambled when he should have been taking a knee to end the game..... 062802puke_prv.gif

When you let a mediocre QB like Chad Henne sit back in the pocket, totally unmolested, and throw to whomever he wants all day long, you really need to get better players on defense....

...no, wait.  They're all injured.

As a Miami fan, I agree with your assessment of Henne as he is currently, though for some reason he has the Jets' number.

I picked the Pack to win the Super Bowl prior to the season, but just don't see how it's possible now with all of the injuries.    Still, if they get Matthews, Finley, etc healthy by the playoffs and can hang in there long enough to get there, they could be dangerous.

Is Barnett gone for the year?

Yep, Nick Barnett was placed on Injured Reserve.

Finley will be out 8 weeks at the very minimum.  8-14 weeks possible.  They may keep him on the roster in hopes of having him for the playoffs.

My main worry is all the injuries on defense.  Pickett, Matthews, Neal, Poppinga, now Woodson may be hurt, too.  If they can't mount a pass rush, then they have no chance to make the playoffs.  fists crying.gif

The NFC North is up for grabs.  
The entire NFC might be for grabs.

The Saints may have turned it up a notch today.  They stomped on Tampa in Tampa.  Philly beat Atlanta, so they may be heating up....although they did lose WR Jackson to a major concussion.

North - ???
South - Saints
East - Eagles
West - Seahawks?  the RAMS??  ohmy.gif

Right now, I'd pick the Saints and Eagles to fight for the Super Bowl.  I'd pick the Steelers as the solid favorite in the AFC.

Right now, I'd pick the Saints and Eagles to fight for the Super Bowl.  I'd pick the Steelers as the solid favorite in the AFC.

There are about 5-6 teams in the AFC who I think are as good or better than the best teams in the NFC...NE, Pit, NYJ, Bal, and Ind.

I had the Pack as champs at the beginning of the year but they've been more than decimated (in the original sense of the word) by injuries, so I almost think that the Vikes will prevail in the North, though if the Pack gets healthy late they could take it too.

The other divisions are a challenge to pick at this point.   I left the Giants for dead three weeks ago, now they're playing some of the best ball in the league.     I'm not sure if I could pick a team with Kolb or Vick to win a conference championship.     The Cowboys have talent but so little discipline (and such a significant deficit) it would be hard to pick them.

The NFC West champion will be the worst team to make the playoffs since either the 1990 Saints or the 1982 Cardinals, but I would have put the 08 Cardinals in the same class two years ago and they had a pretty good run.  Of course, they had Kurt Warner, not Max Hall, an aging Hasselbeck, Sam Bradford or Alex Smith.

Maybe the Saints or Falcons are the best team in the conference but the Falcons haven't played well at all, and the Saints have a post SB hangover.

If I had to pick today I'd probably say that the Saints have the best chance, but maybe no more than 30%...it should be a shootout.   So far, the whole season's been an example of parity...three 23-20 games yesterday, and two of them went to OT....plus another boatload of close games and just one or two blowouts.

Favre throws 3 INTs, Packers beat Vikings 28-24
By CHRIS JENKINS, AP
36 minutes ago
Must Read?Yes     1

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Some Green Bay Packers fans still can't bear the sight of former quarterback Brett Favre in a Minnesota Vikings uniform. It probably hurt a little bit less after the Packers finally sent him home with a loss.

Favre threw three second-half interceptions to his former team and the Packers held on to beat the Vikings 28-24 on Sunday night.

Favre appeared to deliver another signature comeback win with an apparent touchdown strike to Percy Harvin with 48 seconds left - but the play was ruled incomplete on a replay review. With one more chance on fourth-and-15 at the 20, Favre threw incomplete out of bounds.

Green Bay (4-3) turned a pair of Favre's third-quarter interceptions into touchdowns that erased the Vikings' halftime lead, including a 32-yard return for a touchdown by Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop. It was the ninth interception that was returned for a touchdown in the league on Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers was 21 of 34 for 295 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

``It's huge,'' Rodgers said. ``It's a great night. The crowd was electric, we needed this win. It's a long season, but we had to have this one.''

Rodgers threw a pair of first-half interceptions deep in Vikings territory - uncharacteristic mistakes for a quarterback known for good decision-making in the red zone.

Adrian Peterson rushed for 131 yards for the Vikings (2-4).

Fans booed Favre again in his second return to Lambeau Field as a Viking. But unlike last season, when Favre beat his former team twice, Favre committed costly mistakes and the Packers made the most of it.

With the Packers leading by four late in the fourth quarter, the Vikings relied heavily on Peterson and the running game on their final drive.

Facing fourth-and-5 at the Green Bay 48 with 1:51 left, Favre found Randy Moss for a 13-yard gain and a first down.

Then the Packers finally sacked Favre, with Jarius Wynn hitting Favre for a 6-yard loss.

Favre hit Peterson on a screen pass for 26 yards, giving the Vikings a first down at the Packers 15.

The Vikings were called for a false start and a facemask penalty, but Favre then appeared to throw a go-ahead touchdown pass to Harvin and the Vikings began celebrating wildly - but the play was reviewed, and officials ruled Harvin's second foot was out of bounds.

Favre then was pressured on the Vikings' last two chances, and Favre's throws were incomplete.

In the back-n-forth slugfest, the Packer offense mixed dominating football with erratic play, but the defense, still beseiged by injuries, intercepted Brett Favre three times and held the Vikings out of the end zone in the last minutes.  The Packer offensive line protected Aaron Rodgers all night long, and the faithful Lambeau crowd was rewarded with a much-needed win.

Play Of The Game = FS Nick Collins' 4th quarter flying INT deep in Packer territory.  It preserved the lead and forced the Vikings to go the entire field on their last desperation drive, which ended in an EPIC FAIL..... 1022.gif  1022.gif  1022.gif
