According to WISN in Milwaukee, B-Fav has agreed to terms with the Vikings. Best part:
An ESPN reporter asked Packers General Manager Ted Thompson if he was taking it personally that Favre plans to play for Minnesota.
Thomspon’s reply was, “No, no, no, no.”
And for the fun of it, here’s some stats from last year:
- Brett Favre - Rating: 81.0, Int: 22, Sacks: 30, Pct 65.7
- Gus Ferotte - Rating: 73.7, Int: 15, Sacks: 29, Pct 59.1
- Tavaris Jackson - Rating: 95.4, Int: 2, Sacks: 14, Pct 59.1

Using the term “versus” denotes that one team plays another, I should change this headline to “Packers Pwnd Bears”
My God, my brain cannot function in ways to comprehend how badly the Bears were beaten yesterday. In a 37-3 route, the Pack CRUSHED the Bears in every possible way. As my frontal lobe cannot put together words, I’ll just copy-and-paste some comments in email conversation I had this morning with friends from both Chicago and *gasp* Wisconsin
- On behalf of the Packers, I apologize… I didn’t expect that and I won’t gloat, beyond the SCOTT STAPP text I sent.
- You gotta give the Pack credit for playing a great game all-around, and running 200+ on a team that usually “shuts down” the run.
- That was the most pathetic Bears game I’ve ever seen. (Well, recently)
- I missed Rex Grossman’s magic
- I did see Mike Brown’s hit on Ryan Grant. I was surprised Grant was able to come back in the game, it looked monster
- Did you see the Slo-Mo of Grossman warming up and the ball flipping backwards out of his hand?!?! Hilarious!
- I say for the remainder of the season, STAY with the run-stopping… make teams beat you through the air. We may be one-dimensional, but as of last week our one-dimension had us leading the division with our only losses coming to two division leaders (one undefeated), and two playoff-bound teams – all of which by a touchdown or less
- That’s a good point…Even the first game against the Colts was against a very rusty Manning.
- I think as much as the defense is regressing, the offense needs to do something. Either Orton’s ankle is still bum or Grossman is watching game tape from the early 00′s Bears and boycotting passes longer than 10 yards.
- Shoop time baby!
- Orton’s definitely still hurt (sidenote: the Aaron Kampman cheap-shot didn’t help)… maybe 70%.
- Was Kampman’s hit late? I only a saw a replay of it, but I couldn’t tell if he was diving for Orton and hit his ankle or if Orton hurt his ankle again when he was trying to move away from Kampma
- The ball was well out of Kyle Orton’s hand, the play was over and Kampman was on the ground… and he reached AROUND Orton’s good leg to get a shot at the bad one. I’m trying to find video.
- Ew. That sounds like a fine to me!
- The Bears were just lousy. I don’t mind (as much) losing a well-fought game, but that was just embarrassing.
- If you listened to the radio last night, oh man, people were pissed.
- It turns out that the Bears defense IS terrible, and the whole “good at stopping the run” thing was just a way of hiding the fact our entire defense is subpar.
- We could “stack the box” against teams with average QBs (Matt Ryan, Kerry Collins, Gus Ferotte, effing Dan Orlovsky) but when you play a team with good WRs and a good QB like the Packers, we had to play honest, and it really showed how fucking miserable this teams defense is.
- The crazy thing is that we were all oblivious to how bad the team was, when ALL those teams with mediocre/rookie QBs – Falcons, Titans, Vikings, Lions were all throwing well against us, even though only two wound up being losses.
