LC - you and I have been pulling for the Packers around the same time. One of the first Packer games I can remember was the Ice Bowl, I like you suffered through the 70 and 80's but the 90's and up until now have been great. How great did the champange taste in 96? I've lived in CT all my life but have been lucky enough to make it out to Lambeau around 15 times, have met players out there, had great weekends, no matter what, I'll always be a Packer fan. I am with you on Ted Thompson, should he slip another two steps back next year and it will be pretty easy for the board to give old friend Mike Holmgren a call to see if he is interested in coming in to run the organization. (Just my thought) I didn't like seeing Brett get left standing at the train station either, but he did create some of the mess as well, they chose to go with Rodgers and it is what it is. Altohugh there were no Favre like comebacks this year, there were three or four occasions that Aaron led the team in for a score and through poor defense and poor special team play we gave the points right back at the end of the game. I'm thinking the Tennesee game, the Minnesota game, the Chicago game and the Carolina game. While it looks like the Jets owner really wants Brett back, what I don't want to see is him coming back next year and being under a microscope on every play every game. It will certainly not be fun. I think he has got alot to think about --- and he is not going to get until June to think about it this year --Brett's game is and always has been taking chances --- with that comes some INTs. People around here don't understand that and I'm afraid if he got off to a bad start in September it would be non stop bashing. Not a good way to finish up a HOF career.
