No scathing commentary on the Packer’s performance? I’m shocked! Shocked I tell you! — Alandovos
What is there to say? A scathing tone is not needed to make a simple, taboo proclamation that, should Wisconsin hear it from my lips, would cause it to storm the gates of California with pitch alight and forks at the ready.
Brett Favre lost that playoff game.
Now, that said, there will be no pats on the metaphorical backs of the Packers secondary — they just plain suck. But if you view Favre through the Lens of (Not-To-Distant) Playoffs Past you find a starkly different picture than the Hero Who Whoops The Raiders The Day After His Father Passed. In the last four playoff games the Green Bay Packers have contested (which may, in itself, be too strong a word,) Favre’s numbers have been so far below Bad that is defies comparison with his regular season stats. From the linked Journa-Sentinel story:
There’s always next year. Perhaps Green Bay could actually pony up the cash for some new linebackers, maybe a safety to two, and two good cornerbacks for god’s sake. Eh, or maybe we’ll just go back to hoping against hope that the Packers can pull off a less than stellar record in one of the weakest conferences in the league to sneak into the playoffs and get destroyed in the first round.
