    Re: Packer Practice Video 5/29/08

    As far as I'm concerned, the Packers are the favorites heading into this season based on what they did last year, Favre or no Favre. But let's see who's left standing after 16 games. Again, I can't wait for this season to start.

    What they did last year had a lot to do with Favre being there. Their defense was close to middle of the road, but there offense was much better in the passing game (2nd). In the running game they ranked 21st.

    Rodgers has some big shoes to fill & he's going to have a hard time filling them, let alone stay healthy. Out of the last 3 appearances Rodgers made in a game, he was injured in 2 of them.

    They also have nothing to back him up in terms of experience. Both are green horn rookies & haven't so much as even held a clipboard yet or experienced a game at the pro level. If they are put in, their offense will become very vanilla.

    If their line can keep defenders away, they will have better success, but with Rodgers back in the pocket, I expect teams to bring the pass rush & blitz. The defenses will not respect Rodgers ability to get rid of the ball the way Favre could.

    IMO, they'll see an 8-8 season this year.
