No, I live in the city limits of KCMO and are about 15 minutes from Arrowhead.

Maybe the reason we are 5-5 is because Ryan Grant has not produced on the same level he did last year. Maybe it's because our defense has been average and thats being generous. I am sick an tired of everyone blaming the reason we are 5-5 on losing Favre when really thats not why.

You cant compare their stats because they play on different teams, with different supporting players, and have played different opponents. No one knows what Favre's stats would be if he was a Packer. No one knows if the Packers would have a better record. Everyone can speculate all they want but no one can answer that question.

I agree with your assessment of Grant. I have never been sold on him and I dont think he is our RB of the future or atleast he shouldnt be.

I think that he would be a better RB if he shared his role. I wouldn't mind us drafting another RB and doing what Dallas does with Barber and Jones.

Me neither.

I was hoping that they would sign Shaun Alexander in the offseason as a second RB and that would give another pair of solid legs as well as someone for Grant to learn from.

Alexander would have been a good addition, but Grant goes as the o-line goes. The o-line had a great game v the Bears and Grant looked very good. Grant will never be a Marion Barber (that guy is a freak) but I'm good with him as the first option for the Pack. Heck yes, another guy to get the ball would be good. Maybe they could pick up "Edge" from the Cardnials now that Hightower has sent James to the bench. He's still got a little in the tank and would be a great teacher.

Favre (or lack of) had nothing to do with the defense, or the punt/kickoff coverage. Although he probably would have been better yesterday than anybody out there. Feel free to mix in a tackle! I'm still fine with Rogers and the offense. The play calling? Not so much. Special teams and some wussy play calling lost yet another game they should have won. What-ya-gonna-do?

Favre missing isnt the problem. The offense has played well. The defense is the main issue. They have been terribly inconsistent and are giving up huge plays when they need to be making stops.The season is likely over. However, the rest of the schedule is soft and as inconsistent as Chicago and Minny have been they could still win the division. It's unlikely but it could happen.

This season is done for the Packers. They need to improve the defense big time if they want to be at the top next year. And if they could get rid of Ryan Grant and get a real running back, that would help a lot too.
