Favre - stay or go?

    Bubbler, just curious, why did the Packers pass it only five times in the first half? Do they not trust him? Or was that the game plan? Just seems bizarre to see the Packers attempt to win that way.

    I'm not bubbler, but if you don't mind I'll fill in. The new coach Mike McCarthy is hellbent on establishing the run. And when they failed on two third-and-1s and a fourth-and-1 they ended up not having very many first-half plays (20). Also, along with his five attempts, he also was sacked three times in the half, so eight (plus a pass by the punter, making it nine) of the 20 plays were actually called to be pass plays.

    Ditto ... the Bears dominated TOP in the first half.

    I've made it clear in the past that as a Bears fan I hate the Packers, but I've always respected the hell out of Favre. With that said, I really hope he sticks around and sets the franchise back a few more years. :D

    Fave should have know better -- with 17 rookies on the roster, no way could they compete for the postseason.

    Now that they have KoRo, Favre realizes it's all worth it.

    Don't let the facts get in the way of the past two seasons, tony?

    I'll defer to Old Tony. I was at the Brewer game during the first half, only heard the second half on the radio. But time of possession was a major factor.

    And as much as it makes me wretch to write this, here's one factor that hasn't been mentioned: this WAS the Bears defense and they ain't shabby.

    I may wholeheartedly disagree with his political views, but I trust tony to know the Packers.

    Just let him flame out. The Packers won a Super Bowl with him. Give him his due. Let him die like a shooting star, and then restart the franchise. Aaron Rodgers can't wait his fucking turn.

    Well, let's put it this way, then: Peyton Manning wouldn't have looked very good on the Packers last year, either.

    True, but a shutout? An aging Bus ran straight through Urlacher at the goal line last season, Favre could surely find some hole in that defense for one score. But any team with rookie guards probably won't protect any quarterback for long.
