    I'm afraid we're just out of offensive weapons. Our number 1 and 2 receivers are out as well as our number 1 and 2 backs and now Green is out for the year. The 2nd and 3rd stringers are making it close, but not close enough. Today, Brett gave the game to the Bengals with 5 picks. Inexcusable. 6 loses by a total of 16 points. Amazing. Playing for pride at this point.

    I'll agree, since the Steelers are my favorite team. It is kind of a bummer to take on a team with so many key players injured though. It kind of cheapens the victory. Know what I mean?

    I'll be in Lambeau. I don't expect a win, but I do expect a great time!

    You never hear the coaches or players blaming the injuries this year, but this is getting ridiculous. It looks like the #2 TE David martin is also now out. I expect them to put up a good fight at Lambeau though.

    It ain't like the Bears are setting the world on fire. They have a decent defense, and a completely incompetent offense. They are winning the division by default. You have the completely injured Packers team. You have the Lions (nuff said), and you have the purple porno pirates. The Bears will get smoked in the first round of the playoffs. They will also not finish any better than 8-8.

    Cheeze, I think 7-9 will win the vaunted NFC north. Oh and no crying from Packer fans, the Pussycats have lost their top three wide receivers, and their number four is playing injured. They lost their starting fullback and their top two defenders. We don't complain, we know God hates the Pussycats, were cursed!

    Ya..the Lions are injured, but the Pack have lost 3 out 4 of the top recievers, two for the year. 2 out of the top three running backs. Both for the year. The most consistent linebacker has played one game this year. The most consistent offensive lineman has missed a few games. Probowl Tightend has played two games. The Lions could compare IF Roy Williams was out of the year. Charles Rogers was out for the year. Mike Williams was out for 2-3 more weeks. Kevin Jones was out for the year, and Artoose whatshisname was out for the year. Boss Bailey was out all except one game. If your TE you got from the Colts, I forget his name, has played two games this year. THEN you'd be coming close to matching up in injuries. Luckily, the Lions are STILL the Lions, and unfortunately for the Packers draft position, they win the rematch in Lambeau.
     
  13. I'm starting to feel pretty bad for the whole NFC North - every team in the division is pretty much a mess. Although I guess Culpepper's injury could be a blessing in disguise for Vikes fans. After all, how much worse can Brad Johnson be....?


    Don't answer that, on second thought.

    If I didn't know better, I'd say it sounds like you're whining. The players and the coaches aren't blaming it on injuries, neither should we. The coaching staff is actually doing a pretty good job of keeping this team in every game. It's just that they have next to nothing to work with. For that we can thank Mike Sherman and Ted what's-his-name. Both totally inept as GM. Other than about 3 or 4 players, the Packers have next to no talent. Why do you think Ahmad Carroll continues to play? That's right - there's nobody better on the team.

    Yeah, Im whining. I admit it. We have had a great 15 year run as Packer fans, and it's tough to see it end! I really don't think we can judge Thompson after less than one season. I like Shermie's coaching job, but he was a disaster as a GM. (Joe Johnson, Cletidus Hunt, Jamal Reynolds, the McKenzie fiasco, etc)

    The crying and wailing of the fallen cheese warriors is music to my ears. The excuses, the shattered dreams, the monday agony is ballet of beauty. Please Packer Backers, continue to whine. :smug:

    Injuries are a part of the game. Folks are talking about losing their offensive weapons, well the Bears never had em to begin with so there!

    I'm betting that is the case for sure! I know, with the exception of that fluke 13-3 season a few years ago (in which 2 of the losses came to the Packers), I have had no greater pleasure than listening to Bears fans crying on AM1000 on the clear nights when it would come in here in Ohio. As much as the ineptness of the Bears has amused me over the years, I can't even say they are number one in my "hate" book. That position, is, and always will be, reserved for the purple porno pirates in minnesota.
     
  18. Well not sure how to take that comment, but the bears will be back

    Well, if that's what trips your trigger, enjoy the music. Looks like it'll be playing for quite some time in Title Town. I don't see it getting any better for years.
