this is crazy. The Packers and the Vikings are both $20Million+ under the salary cap. We all know that neither team has a clue to spend money when they have it, but among the 32 NFL teams, the Packers and Vikings have about the most room to make improvements. And based on the fact that teams are starting to dump players to get under the salary cap (some teams are $20million+ over the cap), this could be a good year for free agency.

Yeah I noticed that the other day. I knew the Vikes were in good shape but the Packers surprised me. I don't know why everyone is saying Favre wont come back because the Packers are doomed to mediocracy if they have 20 mil to spend. Although they looked awful there isn't a whole lot separating awful from good in the NFL.


(Also for the record the Vikings did sign 2 probowlers last year)

What is the deal with signing Chester? Do they really want a 4 man rotation?


Any Packer who leaves to play for the Bears or Vikings is dead to me.


The Packers need to start spending that money. They could have used any one of the 3 players the Browns signed.


Dayne might be the starter for Denver next year.


I really like the Redskins move for Lloyd from their perspective.

Are you just trying to up your post count?


The Vikings are doing a west coast offense and seem convinced the Packers are the only team to use it.


Getting a kicker from your division makes sense for obvious reasons (don't be surprised to see Paul Edinger in green)


William would be a good fullback I guess.


The Nall interest leaves me scratching my head a bit.


As to address the Chester Taylor comments from Alex:

I too questioned it. But everyone else seems to think it was brilliant because "he can do it all" with "less milage" and cheaper. Plus add to the fact that he had really good stats given his PT and that was on a team with a decimated o-line that may as well have signed a contract before the game to not even try to pass.


I guess only time will tell, I wanted Edge myself.

Packers are talking with Mike Vanderjak I guess. Henderson is undoubtadly one of the better blocking fullbacks in the league, and is a very pleasant surprise as a pass receiver when he is called upon. And once Culpepper is gone, Nall could be their best QB under age of 37. The Vikes should just break my heart more and try to sign Bollinger away from the Jets.

In related former Packers return to decimate their old team news, Corey Bradford just signed with the Lions. I am sure he will give then the same action packed stardom that Kevin Johnson gave us last year.

It didn't cost them much and they really need a veteran receiver to try and rub off on the spoiled #1 draft picks they have now. All the front office kept talking about was Bradford's "impeccable work habits" which I think is the main reason for his signing. Martz originally wanted Isaac Bruce but he resigned with the Rams.

So let me get this straight. AFTER he announces he might possibly think about announcing his decision this weekend Brett Favre schedules a press conference. He then has the gall to say to the reporters after he says nothing "I don't know why you wasted a trip down here". He could have made the intentions of the conference clear. (Even his wife was apparently under the impression today was the day) Instead it was another opportunity to get in front of the cameras and jerk everyone around.

What??? The Packers are supposed to have a bye week whenever they play the Vikings! This is crap. What also is crap is that the Packers have been scheduled to play in Philly for about the 5th straight year. This same thing happened in the mid 90's against the Cowboys. What's going on? That is more alarming than the fact the Packers had 3 straight seasons of playing the same division rival after a bye.


Also, somehow after having a much worse season than the Vikings, the Packers still have the same number of games in prime time. Everyone loves Green Bay (except Javon Walker, Mike McKennzie, Chris Hovan, and apparently Brett Favre).

Now if we can get a fair number of people together we can have some pretty good BP and fielding practice. Post a reply if you are in. Great!

i've tried to make that point in the past only to be made to seem like a Favre Lover :)


It is a very good point though. If you were to look at baseball, for example. There are very few pitchers that have lost 20 games in a season, but there are 16 hall of fame pitchers who have lost 20 games. To be bad enough to put up crap numbers but yet be good enough to be allowed to continue is something to point out.


If Favre throws 10 TD's a year and 16 to 24 int's each season, it's obviously a different story. But coaches can put up with the high int numbers when the net gain is as high as it has been (until last season). While I don't think this current Packers team is necessarily playoff bound (although the NFC North has been soooo lacking stiff competition the last couple of years), I do not think another 4-12, 29 touchdown season is in store.


Anyway, I'm just stunned that Jeremy brought that point up all by himself.

It also should be pointed out that George Blanda is in the Hall of Fame, class of 1981, which oddly enough was the same year former Packers Willie Davis and Jim Ringo were enshrined. Man, it's amazing what you can find of the internet these days.


Other George Blanda stats:

[list:0f52bc3e25]He threw for [size=18:0f52bc3e25][b:0f52bc3e25]42 INTS[/b:0f52bc3e25][/size:0f52bc3e25] in 1962, holy crap

played until he was 48

he also kicked 335 career field goals

he punted 22 times

Our awesomest draft pick has been given the boot! :lol: BJ is no longer a Packer, perhaps he can prosper else where.

On a sad note, :cry: Henderson is out 3-6 weeks with an injury. It's not looking good at all. I hope he gets well very very quickly.

BTW, i really enjoyed the game, we actually looked like a decent team throughout the ranks. Plus, it always helps to beat Ron Mexico in any situation and walk away STD free.
