Shiancoe Says Offense Will Learn From Thursday Night’s Loss

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 10, 2010 – 12:11 pm

The Vikings offense in 2009 was the NFL’s 2nd-highest scoring unit and averaged just short of 30 points per game. In the 2010 season opener, though, points weren’t flowing as freely for QB Brett Favre and Co.

The Vikings went scoreless in the 1st quarter and then posted 9 points in the 2nd quarter. But New Orleans found a way to shut the Vikings out in the 2nd half and come away with a 14-9 win, a far cry from the offensive output both teams’ offense had in last year’s NFC Championship Game.

Despite the struggles, Vikings TE Visanthe Shiancoe sounded optimistic following the game that his team’s offense will eventually find its stride in 2010.

“We left a lot of plays out there obviously,” Shiancoe said. “This is an explosive offense and there’s a lot of things we can take and learn from this. It’s just the beginning of the season, one of sixteen games. So we have a lot of football left. This is nothing that’s going to get us derailed from our goal of the Super Bowl. It’s nothing we’re going to panic over or really get distraught over.”

Shiancoe was the Vikings leading receiver in Thursday night’s loss, hauling in 4 receptions for 76 yards and tallying the Vikings lone TD – a 20-yard grab in the middle of the endzone. But regardless of his performance, he knows that the coming days will provide some productive meetings in the film room.

“We definitely left some plays out there on the field,” he said. “We’re going to have a good film session tomorrow.”

Shiancoe did point out a couple of positives, most notably that the offensive line, RBs and TEs were solid in protecting Favre; he was sacked once on the night. And ultimately that’s what the next week or so will be about for the Vikings – taking positives away from the game but also learning from mistakes in an effort to regain the offensive form that helped lead the club to 12 wins a season ago.

“We always have room for improvement,” Shiancoe acknowledged. “This film session is most likely going to be filled with things that we can learn from. A lot of plays were left out there on the field. And that was from things that I’ve seen out there. So I know that after we watch the film, we’re going to be pretty disappointed at the things we left out there. At the same time, it’s going to be a building process. So we can get a lot of good out of this.”

    You have to go after Vincent Jackson. Give up a couple 2nd round picks, and pay him his 6 million for the rest of this year. The window closes after this year. Berrian returning punts is like kissing your sister on the cheek.

    Thank you Shiancoe for making some great catches and getting your touchdown. If you use Shiancoe and Camarillo the whole game you will be great. What was wrong with Percy? Trade Bernard. Get Walker back. Brett needs these guys to be great like Sidney and Percy were last year. Thanks for protecting Brett the first half. Next time do it the whole game. Defense, you kept them to 14 points which was great but I think next time you should keep them to 0 points. I think their coach outsmarted our coach. Too bad. Fix it and beat Miami. Win Vikings!

    Why not continue to hand it off in the 2nd to AP (AD)? We left there defense on the field for long drives in the 1st half. Should have NOT tried to copy what the saints were doing in the 1st half by airing it out. Whats the point of instant replay anyway? One was clearly able to see that both hands were under the ball for Ole Jimmy K. NOT impressed with the leagues refs this year so far.
    After the Saints D switched it up some quick Hitches or slants to Shianco would have worked against most of the saints packages, but all should be ironed out in the film room. Afterall its only game 1. Another note i named my first born son after Adrian Peterson. I have 100% Viking pride. AP rip it up this year! For Favre, We Viking Nation believe in you. 50 yrs of vikes football and this is The Vikes Year!

    If the Purple People Eaters continue to play like this the remainder of the season, they will be lucky to make the playoffs and finish the season 9-7 or 10-6. Given the fact that Favre is obviously out of shape, Chilly would be wise to use the same script that he used at the beginning of last season and have Favre manage the game using Petersen rather than carry the team on his arm. The offense had issues in the preseason, which reared its ugly head again last night. Brett should offer to give up some of his extra incentive cash to sign a solid back-up RB to Petersen and try to trade for Moss in NE (he is NOT happy with the Pats anymore). Given what NE got for Matt Cassel, I would think that they would be open to offers for Moss. Where is the urgency in the game or making deals for key personnel?!

    BB should be traded or cut from the team, while Walker should be invited back. BB was the only receiver who failed to shine after Favre’s arrival last year, while Walker played with Favre in GB and had a Pro-Bowl season with Brett. But the offensive play calling last night was as bad as the offensive execution. Why did they call running plays for third and long? Why didn’t they throw instead and use more screens and slants? The only thing that the Saints D gave them last night was short and up the middle of the field. I don’t understand they the Vikes gave up on the running game in the second half either. Maybe Chilly should have gotten Mike Martz to call the offense this year. Brett needs to get a personal trainer to get into shape and spend more quality time with his receivers. The “O” is too slow!

    when you are in the position the vikings were going into this season this is when you add players that may not be good for the long run but will produce now. most teams build for the future but the vikings teams future is now…we did not add any significant player to this roster that can produce now…sometimes you have to go for it and sacrafice for a few leaner years . so frustrated to see the bad decisions made by management and add in childress is a recipe for me to get a stroke with this team…

  16. By Pack2VikesFan on Sep 10, 2010 | Reply

    Is it too late for the Vikes to get Marty Shottenheimer to call the offense this year? Besides lack of consistency, the biggest issue with the “O” is the lack of speed and urgency concerning clock management. In the fourth quarter, they took their sweet time to run plays, despite being a long way away from the Red Zone. Minnie needs to throw to Petersen more often, and get rid of BB since he is dead weight. Favre’s accuracy down field is not there yet, therefore there should be more slants and screens along with a dedication to the running game. If the Vikes had the same offensive production last night that they did during the NFC Title Game, they would have blown the Saints away. Even when Rice comes back, he still won’t be a 100%. Chilly should have benched Brett in the fourth quarter…

    We need bigger receiver like Walker or Jackson…Nard look off and awful as the point man…didn’t look like his 2008 form at all….why did we get rid of Marko…we could have developed that more he’s in the mode of receivers that are playing today….I understand was still raw but sometimes guys need a little more time and patience from the coaches…let’s try to Walker and Marko so that we can get the height/leap/stretch factor…that’s game that Rice brings in addition to speed…that’s what Old Man Brett needs since he’s a gunslinger timing type quarterback..Nard only brings speed and he’s too small.

    Scott, I agree the O-Line was giving AP room to run, and AP was keeping the Saints D honest. It just seemed like they didn’t want AP to get the ball the 2nd half.

    The Vikings O-Line did a great job protecting Favre last night, keep it up!

    Defense did good holding the Saints high powered offense to 14 points, if it was last year and we held a good team to 14 point, we would have won 28-14, but we didn’t.

    Remeber it is week 1, teams aren’t playing at there best level yet, give them till week 4 or 5, and then grade the team.

    Offense get a C+ ( They were off )
    Defense last night gets an B+ ( They did good considering only having 3 CB, and a new starting SS, and kept Brees nervous on the D Line)

    in all pro leagues when a team is very close to the championshipe they add players that may only have a couple of years left ,but can still produce and may be a bit over paid..this scenario does not come along often as it is very hard to build a championship team but for the vikings this opportunity was here going into this season but management fumbled the ball not adding any significant payer in fact weakened the team for now by some of the moves they made…

    We need the slot man Camarillo to get the learning curve more quickly…He can run those slant and out routes very good. He’s in a more better system than he was at Miami and his hand timing routes fits perfectly…Throwing Albert in there was too much for the 3rd and long…gotta get AP/Cammy/V more involved in those 3rd and long..use Kleinsasser more too. Chilly is bit too Chilly at adapting…gotta talk more to his receivers.

    I’ve never viewed Berrian an a possession receiver. He doesn’t like running routes over the middle, and our offense hasn’t been dialing up fly patterns to use his speed. He also was blanketed by Tracy Porter most of the game. The Vikings looked like a team that had a lousy camp and preseason on offense and on defense they played on their heels. Recall a downhill hit on anybody….? They played well overall, but I think most would understand my comment. I thought the O line played very well considering everyone thought for certain that Favre was going to get killed. Overall good protection. Favre laid that TD into Shank beautifully. We will see more good than bad. We may even get another shot at them Saints.

    A disgusting loss same story different year always something dragging this team down what a poor secondary saints were just throwing for fun like it was backyard football. Brees had all year to throw on majority of the plays. We just can’t get to the qb and stop the qb. I can sit here and say the vikings will get better but I won’t believe it until I see it. I was expecting payback smashing brees to the ground but we were too soft and let him get his way again. The coach does not have fire to get this team ready, he is always calm after postgame interviews like he expects to lose and its okay. Wrong coach maybe hire a smarter coach. Peterson was running over them until he decides to stop and play fit the ball against 8 in coverage only 3 rushing. Lets just say chilly likes to give teams favors. A soft coach who is not creative wilf wake up and fire this doosh.

    Childress should be fired after last nights disaster. A Hererra needs to find himself a seat on the bench for being blown up atleast 3 times, one costing us an extra point. IMO Ryan Cook should be our center. Sullivan is to small, and was blown up several times aswell.BB Can’t run, catch, block. Why is he even on the squad? Why did we not see camarillo until the second to last/ last drive? Several times Brett didn’t even look to the side of the field BB was on, after his drops in the game, and even the preseason.

    Percy needed to pay more attention to running his routes then smack talking with Tracy Porter who obviously got in his head, and threw him off his game. Favre couldn’t hit the water if he fell out of a boat in the 2nd half, and yet no running plays. I said years go, Bevell has to go. He has NO creativity, and thats why the offensive doesnt reach its full potential. It comes close at times, but when teams know what youre doing….good luck

    Please go out and get a quality wide out. Bernard was not trying last night and it showed tremendously. There were many plays left on the field. Go out and get Randy Moss. He is not happy, and you know he would love to play with Brett Favre. Everyone please communicate with the Vikings in whatever way possible that we need to get something done. We can get to the super bowl, if we just add this one missing piece. Our defense can take on anyone, and our offense just needs to get this one piece and we are iiiiinnnnnn!! If we get the passing game going again… every team in the league needs to watch out cause its on again!

    There was something ‘just not right’ before the Vikings offense even snapped the ball for the first time last night. Did anybody else think that the usual fire and exitement in Favre’s eyes was missing? I think something major is wrong with the team now since the final roster was set.

    This being only the first game of the season, and the toughest one at that, no one can predict how the whole season is going to go. I’m pretty sure that the Saints have a lot of questions of themselves after the game as well. They couldn’t even muster another 1/2 point to cover the spread!

    Kudos to the offencive line last night for protecting Favre! Fill-in RG in the second half needs alot of work if he is taking over full time – he got away with a couple face masks.

    I would like to hear what Peterson has to say about the game…Why is it that Chilly bows down to the opposing coach when its a tight game. I know its only ‘one’ game, but when the game is there for the taking you need to dial it up and make it happen. Remember that ‘one’ game in Chicago last year, well that was the difference having home field advantage, or playing on the road. Chilly- STOP GETTING OUT-COACHED!!!

    What stood out to me about last night’s game is still a recurring problem(s), the holding penalties on the O-line, the disappointment of the corners to cover anyone, giving up the big plays, also successive penalties on the return game, putting us in terrible field position and killing what few sustained drives we had. Also I thought Javon Walker did a great job and I was surprised they cut him. With the absence of Rice, Berrian and Harvin will have to step up til Rice and Griffin return. I know that my opinion is not worth a cup of coffee, however, it is my observation as I saw it. the coaching staff had better find a way to fix it or it will be a short season for us!

    Bret Favre and wide receivers not in sync. What happened to Bernard B? Besides Shancoe, where are the offensive threat? Get a humongous offensive lineman to create holes for AP and company, a “real” deep threat wideout, and a genuine return specialist/cornerback. Is it really hard for management to put together a SB winner?

    So why did the offense abandon the running game in the 2nd half?! If AP is your most explosive weapon, you have to give him the ball. You could tell he was running like a man possessed in the 1st half. As far as the receiving core, why was Camarillo on the bench until the 4th quarter? The guy is gonna do nothing but contribute if he gets a chance. I can understand the passing game being out of sync with lack of chemistry and a de-conditioned Favre. I can also understand why so many people are upset with Berrian, he seemed unfocused throughout the game. Trading Raynaud was a BAD MOVE! I hope the Vikings can do as Shaincoe stated and learn from their mistakes and be better for the Dolphins. Clean it up fellas and get a “W” against the Fish in week 2!!

    Favre should have been in camp earlier, he obviously fatigued last night. His throws became sloppier as the game wore on. He can’t expect to come in two weeks before the season and get into shape, especially at 40. I know the guy knows the offense and playbook better than anyone but he seems to ignore getting into game shape. That’s what the other 52 guys on the roster did, why should he be excused? We’ll see the real Favre by week 3 or 4, much like last year. I’m just afraid we’ll be 1-3 by then. To make the playoffs we’d likely have to win 9 of last 12…YIKES!

    Quick message to all you “Javon Walker will save the season” morons…If he was so good, wouldn’t someone have picked him up by now??? He was going against 2nd and 3rd teamers people! He’s washed up trash!

    I’m listening to a lot of excuses and reasoning, however, the truth of the matter is the Vikings should have won the game. Once the Vikings started running the ball in the 2nd Qtr the tide change. But for strange reason they decide to go pass happy in the 3rd – 4th. My Question who really was at fault Childress, Brett or Bevell. Anyone with common sense would have immediately gone back to the receipt that gave you the lead. Prior to Farve arriving on the scene Childress was a grind it out coach, so I don’t really see him making those calls. If Brett is making the calls we are in trouble in the long run for the fact the QB can’t be player/coach on the field. They lost the game by being out coached, plain & simple. The way this schedule is this year, you can’t lose games that you should win, Especially knowing key players are down and the North is better. Next week they play Miami, if Miami wins and GB or CH is 2-0. it’s going to be a long season. I just want everybody to remember what TJ had to work with when he was the starting QB. “ie without Percy” Sidney take the year off. I want to evaluate Brett. Fans say “He’s missing his weapons” TJ didnt have any – play ball. So I can see if your really worth 15 Million. TJ got us 10-6 with medicore WR’s So it shouldnt be a problem to get at least 11-5 agree? without Sidney Rice.

    They cut walker so they could pick him up after week 1 and only have to pay him on a weekly basis if and when they resign him. So walker will be moveing around the field against the fins. Put Greg in the only way he will learn the system is by playing and getting used to Farves style.

    Quick review:
    We were quite out of sync, primarily the “O”, but our guys will definitely come around, this game is a big wake-up call. Despite our so-so game based on our standards, we still almost/should have beaten the current world champs. Special teams: Pretty good, except for the missed extra point, which might have come back to haunt us, got to make them. Defense: Good except for the 1st and 2nd half NO drives; could not adjust to the NO 2nd half drive unfortunately, which took our lead away. Our secondary needs some very serious coaching-up. Offense: Inconsistent, AP looked good and had very good ball security. Brett will come around–he is very demanding on himself and he personally will not tolerate mediocrity. We must not panic, but we need a better sense of urgency. We have one of the best and smartest QB’s in football, and we need to be decisive and get him more weapons–now! Give Walker another chance (he should be very hungry to prove himself) and let’s get Moss (he and Brett always wanted to play together), and by mid-season our WR’s will be Rice, Moss, and Walker–an exciting combination of talent to take us deep into the playoffs.

    thats what i said before the game. BB cant catch, he does not have jump ball skill. Percy Harvin is good as a slot reciever not a wideout. Bring back Javon Walker and use him as Wideout in place of Sidney Rice. Greg Camarillo and Harvin can play slot recievers. If BF has pressure he can always throw short yardage to GC and PH. If you need to make the first down on 3rd n 5or3 you could always hit Javon Walker with a slant or lop it up for him to grab.

    And also a better job as creating lane for AP to run like motion a tight end over and hit the LB and freeze him up while the Fullback cleans up the safety or CB to give AP the wide open lane allday.

    I would like to say,” yea” that their timing may have been alittle off, but the big reason for stalling out was penalties. The officiating in the game seemed alittle one sided. Okay, it seemed alot one sided. I think Nfl Officiaters wanted the saints to win agiainst Brett and the vikings to prove the better team won in the NFC playoff game,(which at the very end had several bad calls,like the one on leber for pass interference)plus lets not mention the several late hits on brett that was not called the whole game. In the rematch on Thursday I never say but one actual penalty on replay, even the commentaters pointed out they didnot see it over half the time. And the completed catch on 3rd down for a first that one official overruled another, the review showed Kliensaucer made the catch, HIS Hands were under the ball, and he pulled it in with control, but because of official call on the feild they did not over turn the ruling on the field,which had already been overturned by another referee. If you ask me I think the officiating needs to be looked at. We had several first downs and nice completions taken away to be 2 and 20, even 2 and 30. I even liked after 2 and 20 Brett completed to Shanco for a first, but when the official spotted the ball we had a 3rd and 2. Who could win with ghost penalties being called, and bad spots on the ball. Personally I think the officiating has alot to do with the way the season goes in the NFL and maybe a blog about bad calls, non-excisting penalties that affect certaing teams all season needs to be started and officials should be looked at. Please let me know if you see and feel the same way.

    Shancoe, I pray that you become All-Pro this year. Please motivate Bernard. What’s happening with him? Also, Percy, migraines cannot be a perennial excuse. Receiving corp not getting respect. You guys have to do better. Got to have lots of reps with Bret. Vikes need a receiver that opposing teams fear so Peterson and company can roam all over the place.

    Besides BB sucks, O-Line cant open holes for AP. If you watch that game i dont know why Leslie Frazeir didnt dial blitz againtst them on Jared Allens side. The Saints kept a tight end and RB to chip him and left the gap between him and K-William WIDE open. Should of ran a late Blitz straight that way.

    Why did’nt we keep A.P. moving the offense in the second half? Why could’nt we stick to what was working Thursday night until we got Brett and the receivers back into synch? I wonder what would have happened if we would have stuck to slamming the ball in their face, what shape their defense would have been in by the end of the game, and utlimately what the score would have been had we stayed with some good ole’ smash mouth football.?

    Standing pat in this league is a sure way to lose ground. No earlier attempt to get T.O. when he was there for the asking and – no no attempt to pick up a very badly needed a receiver this past month- it suggest that perhaps the ownership – is moving on and out of Minnesota. It would be difficult to leave if one got to the super bowl game this year. Business has its ugly side and perhaps we are seeing that play out right now before our eyes…

    First of all, favres timing with wide receivers was all off. Besides shank and cam, noone was running the routes on time with favre. Let percy blow defenses away in the middle and lay it off to AP more, hes got better hands and ball skills after the catch on the edge then we realize. AD was running like a monster in the first half. KEEP GIVING HIM THE BALL. The O line did ok. I’ll give them a B, but the backs and slots receivers chips and pickups really threw off the saints pass rush. We weren’t getting a good 4 man rush, but with even O line D line blitzing we really blew apart that O line. We shouldv’e sent more linebackers on run blitz on the edge, away from nicks and into the path of their backs, once they started running in the 2nd half. The coverage was mediocre, but i saw good things from AD and shank. If the refs had let the teams play, I think we could of beaten the saints. And if we had patched up our game adjusted to the balanced offense they showed in the second half, we could’ve really dominated them. GO VIKES!

    One of the positives in the first half the O line played better than I have seen them play in quite a while against a very very good defense. if we can get healthy and stay healthy the line play should get better each week. Ap ran hard downhill between the tackles like he did his rookie year nobody likes to see us fumble but what bothered me in may game last year was Ap turning everything into a stretch play and try to bust the big one. One play at a time Thursday night was his attitude. If we get healthy and stay healthy we will see this team again this year but it would more than likely be back there again. As bad as our offense played in the second half and considering our situation with DBs I felt the defense played exceptionally well with exception of the the first possession of the Saints. the long drive b the offense played huge part keeping Drew and the Saint’s offense on the sidelines.

This is just like a business, guys get traded to other teams all the time. And if I guy comes to a team in the same division he played in for 17 years and plays his heart out for that team, then my hat is off to that player! Because he could just collect a paycheck and not try that hard. But Brett isn’t here for the money. He is here because he wants to help this team win it’s first Championship. He is here because he loves those guys in the locker room. If all those guys can welcome him like that, then maybe you should quit being a hater and wish the best for Favre which is wishing the best for your team. Unless you are lying about being a Viking fan???

    Please, people, CHILL OUT. The Saints did not play that much better than the vikings. It was not a huge victory. Favre being at training camp has nothing to do with this–most of his receivers were not there either. My bet is there is a huge improvement by the next game. harvin forgot the Golden Rule when playing with favre. “If favre still has the ball, keep running towards the goalline!”

    No one is going to trade BB-he just needs to make the effort to have a plan with Brett.

    Farve is a very good QB, but his claim to fame is his toughness, not his astounding skill. He is very capable, but he’s not top 5 all time…. other than his longevity. BB is not going to get traded…. his value as trade bait doesn’t equal what the Vikes get out of him… a PERCEIVED deep threat. You’d never replace him for what you’g get for him, if you get my meaning. Moss is NOT coming back to the Vikes… no chance. If we work with what we have and get in sync, we don’t NEED another receiver. Between Shank, Percy, and Camarillo, we have a very competant receiving corps. Sure we don’t have a reliable deep threat, but if the defenses pull in, Harvin and Shank have the foot speed to make them pay. We are fine, just gotta shake the rust off.

    BTW, our DBs are what we should be worried about. That game should have been 28 – 9. Allen got beat twice on deep sideline routes that had the guy wide open, and and unpressured Brees uncharacteristically missed his receiver. On neither play did Abdulluh get anywhere close to help out. THose were touchdowns the Saints left on the field. I didn’t get the feeling we left ANY points on the field.

    fmfan, you seem to dislike having Farve on the team. I can’t believe that you think that Jackson or Rosenfels would be preferable to Farve… on any level other than running for 2 yards before you scan your receivers. If they didn’t get Farve, it very well may have been Jeff Garcia, which would have been fine. Let’s give them time to get their act together. I doubt like heck that the Vikes win the division this year with the injuries we have already (the CBs are more painful than Rice IMO, and I think Rice could end up better than Moss if he can stay on the field). If we lose a few more, sokay… looking at our schedule, it looks softer at the back end, so we can make up some ground, mebbe.

    Woodboat, I’m going to tell you why I think Favre is not only in the top 5 all time, but he is the BEST of all time. Sure you can take guys like Montana, Marino, Unitas or Elway and make your arguments for them. But the thing is that Favre has about every passing record there is IN SPITE of being a gunslinging, chance taking, unthorodox quarterback! Can you just imagine how dangerous he would have been if he had followed the protocol for staying in the pocket, throw it away when neccessary type quarterback? I have heard him in interviews admit he loves taking the hard throws. The throws where there are 3 defenders versus 1. Like that throw to Percy Harvin in the Packer’s game for example. THAT’S WHAT MAKES HIM SO GREAT AND FUN TO WATCH! This guy still has managed to break almost all the records in spite of this mentality of his. He loves the game and loves to win and he takes risks all the time to do it. Do you think if those other big name quarterbacks played like that, that they would have won as many games as Brett has?

    Then of course people will say he has thrown the most interceptions. Well guess what, he has also has the most passing attempts of any quarterback in the history of the NFL. And what some sports writers never tell you who are always bringing up his interception tendencies, is the fact that Brett Favre has a BETTER Career Interception ratio than 25 Hall of Fame quarterbacks! yes you heard me right! Better than guys like Bart Starr, Fran Tarkenton, Johnny Unitas & Roger Staubach! Hard to believe? Well it’s a FACT! Brett’s tendencies to throw picks still manages to be right in the middle of the pack when ut comes to Hall of Fame quarterbacks in spite of his gunslinging ways. Now you add all the records he has, plus the fact of his love for the game and his enthusiasm to win this game. And name other quarterbacks in this league that run down the field and throw blocks like Brett does? And then of course his most amazing feat, the continuous start record he has! With guts like that, with the talent he has, with the records he has and with the heart he plays with makes him the BEST to ever play the game IMHO!

    @ted. you are a ungrateful piece of garbage. if favre never went to green bay, nobody would have known who the packers were. nobody cared. all you think about is the negative things in life. i can tell. because favre has dne alot more good things in that city then bad. and im from wisconsin. packer fans are too dumb to realize they made him retire the first time. why do you think they offered him 20 million dollars to keep his mouth shut. and then they tell him where he could or couldn’t go. and no we wouldn’t have have even went to the super bowl and all those nfc championships if it wasn’t for favre. and his last game in green bay, offensively favre was keeping them alive. did you forget al harris getting burned every play by plaxico? you don’t have to like him, but you should respect him. and nobody knows this but he still to this day gives millions of dollars to wisconsin children’s charities. didn’t know that did you. probably don’t care. favre is not selfish

    At least Chris Johnson get touches in the second half. Nice job of coaching BALL-LESS BRAD!

    It is one of the most illogical statements ever to come out of a human beings mouth to say that Tavaris Jackson would do better than Brett Favre. First of all Brett Favre made every reciever better last year just by his presence. Second he posted MVP type numbers last year. Third, have you even seen T jack play. He is athletics, but not a great pocket passer. Please, lets use common sense in our replies. Also, all the packers whoa re downing favre, are obviously mad that he fixed his bicep injury and then destroyed you last year. Sorry, but Favre made the Packers. It’s not his fault that people love watching him play and drive thousands of miles to beg him to come back. When your own team loves and respects you that much you know something is right. The man also has 3 mvps. I shouldnt have to say more, but please, by all means tell me where I am wrong here. Get the man a Vincent Jackson type reciever and we are in the Super Bowl … bottom line!

    MAILBAG, who called only pass plays in the 4th quarter and why didn’t we run AP?

    Yes I don’t get it, one game Childress is calling 4 run plays in a row in the red zone and turns the ball over on downs and then the next game when the pass isn’t working because the receivers cant get separation he doesn’t use the run plays. I just don’t get it!

    Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The Saints are a very good team. Favre has not had a lot of time to prepare when at the last minute Rice decides he needs surgery. That was a huge loss. Give Favre a few weeks of practice with Camarillo and let’s see what happens. Harvin is still a great WR and Berrian can be also at time. Shank is the MAN! We still have AP and Young looked good too. We have Gerhart waiting in the wings, and we hopefully get Sidney back in a few weeks. Besides, the Packers and Cowboys looked very beatable Sunday. All is well. We will be 3-1 going into the bye week. A solid foundation for the rest of the season.

    To all Packer fans–that rennovation @ Lambeau would never have happened without the stellar seasons that Brett and the team brought to Green Bay year after year. How DARE you losers forget all that and boo him when he took the field at Lambeau last season! You all have a chance to redeem yourselves and cheer him when he takes the frozen tundra once again, for what he says will be the last time. If you “haters” can’t do that, then continue to swill your beer and keep your mouths shut! Also, to all the other “haters” out there–do not block my view @ Canton when MR. BRETT FAVRE is inducted into the hall of fame. You guys don’t even deserve the chance to buy a ticket. GO, VIKINGS!!! SKOL!!!!
