He never said he wouldn't. But if I were a GB fan I'd have worried, too.

That's good. Too bad he's not playing like he did a few years ago in his prime. However, I blame the Packs' management for the team's demise for letting some key players go.

Huh? Demise? They were 12-4 and tied for the best record in the NFL.

I think our local sports guy said it best: The Packers lost to the Falcons because all the "band-aids and duct tape came flying off". In addition to all the starters out at the beginning of the game, losing Driver, Glenn, and Gilbert during the game sure didn't help.

Maybe demise isn't the word of choice. But, Packs' management is asking too much from new receivers and having Favre to adjust. They should not let Freeman and Shrader go.

Look for them to draft or trade for a young QB. I think this non-announcement is just a set-up to prepare GB for the inevitable, which is that Favre is not immortal and will have to retire.

The Packers can only play who their scheduled to play. Philly played Washington twice, Dallas twice, Houston, Chicago, Seattle, St Louis and Arizona (and lost to Jacksonville). Those were all sub .500 clubs.

i am glad to see favre come back as he is one of my favorite players. i hope that the packers can stay healthy next year as it seems to me that is one of the biggest reasons they lost.

The Packers lost to the Falcons, because the Falcons are a better team.

How old is Rich Gannon? 38? He seems to be in his prime right now, so I can't call Favre over the hill just because they lost two games in a row. Favre came in second in MVP voting. How quickly people forget.

Favre's prime passed a few years ago while Gannon is just getting started.

They may have played better that day, but the better team in general this season? I doubt it....

Better than the injury riddled, skeleton of a team that played on Saturday?: you betcha

Better than the Packers with all (or even most) of their first stringers actually playing: no frickin' way..............
