Question: are Favre and/or Moss offensive linemen who can hold a block? If not, please explain how they would make this team better. QB and WR are not where this team's weaknesses are.

Teddy sucks, but I don't like him for reasons completely unrelated to Favre.

Put Rodgers on the Vikings and bring Favre to Green Bay and the Pack still loses.

If you believe what ESPN tells you, than yes, Brett Favre could snap it to himself, block the entire blitzing defense, then throw a 75 yard bomb, to you guessed it, himself, all while have fun like a kid out there.

[quote=jfre81;11070074]There was also a Packer lined up in the neutral zone for that snap, but it still made for a bad pass Favre got away with. It's happened many times before.

I was not aware of this. I didn't have the sound on & saw the replay after the game.

I'm hoping that after a few weeks I'm not thinking "be careful what you wish for" as the Pack are bringing Tausch back after a series of workouts last week. I can't imagine him looking any worse than Allen Barbre. Despite him not having played a down in almost a year, I'm still pretty happy about him coming back.

It's a good faith attempt to get better, which is about all that can be asked for. Not getting my hopes too high though.

No, me either. Agree about the good faith offering. At least they did that. If anything, Tauscher is smart. He doesn't hold or jump before the snap. What he has always lacked in speed and strength, he has made up for by being a great positioning tackle, and again being smart. With this signing, I'm by no means punching the Packers ticket to the Super Bowl, that's silly, but at this point, it can't hurt. Always been a Tauscher fan. Glad he's back.

That post is a beyond ridiculous. QB and WR are not the issues for the team. Rodgers has proven that he is a very good if not great QB and we two of the best receivers in the league.

The Packers would not win anymore games if Brett were still playing. The issues with the Packers are in the O-Line. If they had a better O-Line, they would probably be 4-0 right now.

I am not a fan of Ted Thompson but I would never stop beng a Packers fan because of that. If you stop being a fan because of that, you were never a fan to begin with.

if you want to play that game, if Cutler didn't literally have the worst game of his career in week 1, packers would be 1-3 right now.

I wouldn't dispute that. It's not a secret that the Pack is no good right now, but anyone who thinks Favre would change everything is just being ridiculous. Of all this team's weaknesses, quarterback just isn't it.

No matter what ESPN or John Madden would have you believe, the game and the Green Bay Packers will live on after Brett Favre's hung it up.
