    Where does 5 wins put us?

    Just wondering where 5 wins puts us in the draft next year. I don't think we will win another game and right now there are a lot of crappy teams in the league. I think we could be the fifth pick overall if a couple of teams win one or two ahead of us. This is pretty pathetic I know but it is the only thing I can look forward to the rest of the season...other than seeing Team Gay get knocked out and the Pats losing and New Orleans. Though I will admit I like Drew Brees, seems like a good guy. If we did end up fifth overall I like Locker myself. Thoughts?

    Currently with 5 wins we are tied for the 8th worst record in the league with the Browns, Texans, 49ers, Titans, Redskins.

    Below that, there are Cardinals, Cowboys, Broncos, Bills, Lions, Bengals, Panthers, in that order.

    Only the panthers can not reach 5 wins, everyone else can reach or exceed 5 wins. I'd say we can wind up anywhere from 6 to 15.

    lol, that's exactly what I was thinking. There's a dichotomy just like the global economic situation.

    Why couldn't we play those 15 teams? We could have maybe finished 12-4 and advanced to the NFC Championship Game.

    Says he, as if HOFer Favre's embarrassing losses played no part in our terrible season.

    All 4 of Favre's measely wins came from beating teams as bad or worse than us from that list.

    Detroit, Dallas, Washington & Arizona.

    I expected more from a HOF QB that got paid $16-$20 mil to deliver.

    Our 5th win was TJ's win against the 3-10 Bills.

    We beat no one with a better winning percentage of 39%

    Don't you think we have enough discussions about Favre elsewhere?

    Let's not derail every thread please.

    Why not? After all, those losses are ALL Favre's fault!! The Defense showed up, as did the O-Line, the receivers, the Secondary, Special teams, and we had fantastic schemes and play calling...


    ...yup...that damn Favre. He screwed us all.


    ...Oh...wait....What's that? Nobody else showed up either? Really? So what are we blaming Favre for, exactly?

    Yeah, I don't know either...

    We would have lost to them anyways.
    We're bringing purple back.
