That's why this mediocre Pack team beat the Bears 37-3 a few weeks back, right?

You left out the play before the winning OT field goal. Where he threw to the only WR who was covered.

that was the Packers first win against Chicago, in Lambeau Field, in 5 years...

don't worry, i'll be there for the Monday Night game in Soldier Field on December 22nd aka the Revenge Game. the California boy won't be able to handle it...

good point packersnut, favre is old but he's a legend.

My anger towards Favre has pretty much worn off. Anyway the better he does the better the draft pick we get from the Jets

However you cannot say Rodgers hasn't been good this year. He is about 5 guys ahead of Favre in QB rating.

he has been very good...i just wonder how much his stable of amazing WR's has to do with that. like if you gave kyle orton green bay's WR's would his #'s be similar, things that make you go hmmm...the packers have 4 WR's better than anything Chicago has.

Agree 100% with your assessment, especially Childress. Vikes will never go anywhere with him at the helm. 6 Probowlers and a .500 record...just like the team he inherited.

Because they took ATL too lightly and fumbled away the game, I am forced to consider a rooting interest in the Packers tonight. I threw up in my mouth after typing.

Look, it's been a rough year, but let's end it right.

Down with Da Bears.

Go Pack Go!

I don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but this defense blows. I just wanted to say that, in case nobody has noticed.

That sucked.

Time to go to bed.

What a waste of a great performance by Rodgers. Keeping his cool, even though the O-line can't block. And without Driver for most of the game to boot.

You missed nothing worth seeing.

I want to think positive here. I have every reason to believe that Rodgers will be a great quarterback for this franchise. Life will go on after Brett Favre. However, there was only a Super Bowl championship with Favre plus a defense and an offensive line. My expectations are to compete at the top level of the NFC within two or three years. It can happen.

Now, it's really time to call it a night. Have a good one and a happy holiday, Packer Backers.
