    @#%&* Schedule Makers Did It Again !

    Our Week 7 home game against the Packers has them coming off a bye. Two years in a row we have to play our chief competitor as they come off a bye. There's no excuse for their ineptitude.

    Incidentally, our week 8 game against Carolina has them coming off a bye too.

    The only good thing is our week 6 game against Da Bears is as we come off a bye.

    Well, I think we automatically come off a bye at least once in a season :wink: Here's to hoping we get to do it twice this season.
    But I do not mind so much playing the Packers off a bye that early in the season. We will beat their ass in the dome anyways ... I am not happy about traveling to face a rested Carolina team though.

    Having two weeks to prepare for a team and rest up makes a huge difference. I know I won't be as confident going into that home game. The Pack swept us last year, and that could have contributed to it.

    remember favre will be looking at a completley changed defense, the coaching staff won't be able to look at much game tape from when they beat us last year. Hopefully are defense will be pumped after kepping opponents at an average of 7.0-13.0 points a game (what I want to see!) Plus are offense will still be able to put up 30 points like we did last year withought Randy two times!

    Yup Yup, its intristing you brang that up SKOL i was about to go look at the packers schedule to see if they did it again, and they did. What is the deal? When you give out bye weeks you should always give them out before you go and play a team out of your division, better yet out of your conference. I dont know what it is but its not right, while the packers are at home (just like last year) resting there legs we are out playing a game, its ignorance and stupidity. Who cares if the teams know each other so well, HEALTH is WAY more of a concern to me.

    Re: @#%&* Schedule Makers Did It Again !

    The schedule is overrated. I wish I had all week to prepare for what I'm doing Sunday! If that one week really matters, then work harder (study) in the offseason.

    When a team has an off week, don't they go home anyways?

    In other words, Just Kick Green Bays A$$!!
