I didn't post this in main, because I didn't really want to get in a fight about it, and not a lot of outside NFL fans come in here. :lol:
But I really think we are a top five team in the NFL. With all of our injuries (Winfield, Berrian out. and Sidney not at 100%) we went into one of the most hostile environments in the NFL and outplayed a very good football team. When this team gets healthy and on a roll, we could be very scary.

You could also be 4-3. Easily.

I thought we were going to get killed with Winfield out but I was wrong.

We were very much in the game and could have won except for those 2 crucial red zone turnovers and the bad tripping call.

Hope we can be fired up from this loss and beat the Packer next week so we can heal up on the bye.

And we could be 7-0 just as easily.

We are - and we're fun to watch also which has been a long time coming. The offense is plugging well, we have a good mix of plays and balance.. and our defense is still one of the tops to beat.

I'm happy as hell with what Childress & company have done and produced the past 3+yrs.

Hopefully Winfield will be back after the bye week. I can't take watching more missed tackles :evil:

The defense looked pretty bad in the second half, but they did tighten up when it counted and held GB to a long FG attempt that they missed, which set up the offense for the GW drive.

Well played game today. When Winfield gets back our defense will improve markedly.

Always fun to watch the Packers lose. All the better because I was in a room full of Packer fans :D

Big game at the dome next week. Don't want to drop 2 in a row. That would send the whole state into shock. Hell, on Rube Chat today, you would think we are a 2-10 football team :lol:

I think we'll be fine, just gotta focus in on these last few games. 8)

Yea, nearly saw this one coming - I can't complain at all yet.

We don't match up with Arz so I'm not surprised they beat us. I was surprised at how well they protected Warner so that was some concern.

We need to get back on the winning streak and hopefully Winfield will be back soon.
