    Re: Phil Loadholt

    Some of his INTs have been terrible throws.
    Which ones are the "some" you're talking about?

    Was he getting hit as he threw the ball?

    Did his receiver go the wrong way?

    Seriously, you really can't know what happened to create the interception most of the time and I don't think you can come up with "some" "terrible" throws that ended in interceptions.

    Here's the thing: if he had excellent pass protection and reliable receivers and THEN threw interceptions--yes, I would agree with you.

    Lacking that, nobody can conclusively say Favre has played poorly.

    I haven't ragged on Favre.

    I think he's done very well considering the poor pass protection and the whimsical, wandering and disinterested receivers he's been stuck with this year.

    I knew all along he was doing ok, unlike some others here.

    Take his TD pass to Percy yesterday. It goes down in the books as a TD but he almost missed a wide open WR.
    Again, I have to laugh when the Favre bashers are reduced to complaining that his TD passes were not quite perfect enough.

    ROFL, indeed.

    In all fairness, though.....there's been a LOT to talk about in the last few days.

    Re: Phil Loadholt

    As always, it's a combination of things. Favre is not very sharp this year. That's evidenced by his TD-INT ratio. The O-line is not getting very good protection. The receivers are having trouble getting open and Favre no longer has his go-to-guy from last year. All of this combined is causing the offensive woes, not one or the other.

    That said, and back to the original topic, if Loadholt continues to get burned the way he has been so far, I think it's due time for a benching.

    Who replaces him, anyway?

    If the guy from the bench is likely to do worse, why bother?

    This is a consequence of the management letting us get too thin on O linemen.

    I have to laugh when someone has to post the same post in multiple threads.

    And a few of us aren't reduced to just that throw my friend.

    How many times did the Noodle know the rush was coming and didn't get rid of it to the hot reciever?

    How many times did he roll out on the bootleg and miss the guy open underneath cause he was looking deep.

    How many times did the Noodles actions cause the OL to look bad?

    Are there issues with the OL? Yes. Always will be. Can some of those issues be corrected/alleviated if the QB gets rid of the ball on time? Yes. Can some of that "Lateness" in getting rid of the ball be contributed to WR's not being open? Yes, but even on the fuzzy screen yesterday, I could see recievers open in the dumpoff zones.

    Long story short, the passing attack as a whole needs work, but it needs work at all levels and not just one or two Olmen.

    Reduced my ass..... I can bring this stuff all day.

    Re: Phil Loadholt

    I marvel how quick a few of you are to throw a player like Load onto the scrap heap.

    Anyone see Hutch miss the stunt twice yesterday? Are you guys ready to shitcan him over those mistakes?

    Bottom line up front.....Load had a pretty decent year last year. Teams got some good tape on him and know his weakness and are exploiting it. Give him some time and I am sure he will correct those weaknesses.

    I mean seriously, it is only his second year. What the heck, does everyone expect him to be a instant HOF'r and never make mistakes?

    I have to laugh when those people who read it multiple times can't comprehend it. Sometimes it needs to be said twice. The truth hurts.
