The last thing on my mind this Sunday is the Packer game. Deer hunting opens Sat, so the Pack gets trumped this week. I even had first dibs on four tix on the 30, and turned them down.

Dude's been quiet so I'll rant on his behalf

Some random QB and Team fun facts:

Passer Rating (win-loss)
01 Manning (9-0)
10 Brunell (3-6)
11 Brady (6-3)
12 Grossman (8-1)
17 Favre (4-5)
28 Plummer (7-2)

Total Yards (win-loss)
03 Manning 2527 (9-0)
07 Favre 2295 (4-5)
08 Grossman 2095 (8-1)
10 Brady 2054 (6-3)
16 Brunell 1789 (3-6)
22 Plummer 1595 (7-2)

Total Touchdown/Interceptions (% TD to Int ratio)
Manning 18/3 (16%)
Brunell 8/4 (50%)
Favre 13/7 (53%)
Brady 15/9 (60%)
Grossman 17/11 (64%)
Plummer 10/10 (100%)

Total Offense
02 Indianapolis
07 Green Bay
11 New England
13 Chicago
16 Washington
19 Denver

Total Defense
01 Chicago
09 New England
13 Denver
16 Indianapolis
22 Green Bay
30 Washington

-----------

Looks like defense really does win championships. The key one which was why everyone was hammering on Favre last year was TD/Int ratio. I see no fault in Favre with his play this year and I'd still rather see his td/int ratio down. But I bet NE and CHI would say the same seeing as your guys are worse than Brett YTD.

Yep, NE I fully would bet will win but for the defensive reasons...

And you didn't try to provoke random people in to betting by bashing one of their players. I just hate when a "fan" starts talking when they are playing a worse team. But when they have a good chance to lose they don't say sh*t. It just makes me mad.
I think he's just playing around because Dude has shown a tendancy, let's say, to quickly take the bait when it comes to Favre. I'm pretty sure he said that HBT got blocked at work, otherwise I'm sure he'd be chiming in right about now. In any case, I didn't perceive any ill malice on Sword's part, just playing around and trying to start some good-natured sh*t.

Hell, it would have been me if I'd been paying attention to the schedule!

Now do you understand why I ignored this thread completely?

I may be a bigger Packer fan than most, but I'm not a sucker.

Sorry for speaking up the dissapearing - indeed the reins on internet adventuring at work have been tightened up - but hey, who tightens the reins? Yes, it IT guy. And who is there to tighten the reins on the IT guy? Also correct, no one! muuhahaha!

No seriously, I was down on Cape Cod for the weekend and didn't have access to the 'net to chime in, so thanks Bird for the block. You're right tho - I was more just rattling Favre cages (mainly the Dude, who successfully pulled a Heismann on this bait ) - I in fact have a ton of respect for the guy. I hope the injury isn't as bad as it seemed.

On to Da Bears though.....on the new rug at Gillette (?!?!?!!). I hear the NFL was moving this game to 4.....and possible 8. Anyone hear this for sure?
