boy oh boy just go on with the hate...jets are a competitive team now, wake up!

Competitive, but not playoff bound. Not in that division and not in the STACKED AFC. May be the wild card team, but I don't think they would win a playoff game.

This is the best thing for the Packers. Jets don't come to GB until 2014 so packers brass doesn't have to worry about that crazyness. I say we get a 3rd rounder out of this maybe a 2nd rounder. If the jets make it to the sb the pick would be a 2nd rounder anyway for all tense and purposes.

The 2 New England games, San Diego, and Seattle are the games I think that the Jets have very little chance to win, but the rest of them are very realistic victories. They added Kris Jenkins, Vernon Gholston, Calvin Pace, Alan Faneca, Damien Woody, and the rest of their draft. Throw Brett Favre in there and this team can be just as good as a team like Jacksonville and certainly better than a team like Tennessee

Yeah, the schedule was something I was going to point out. The Jets have a great chance at the playoffs. I wouldn't say they can be as good as Jacksonville, I don't even think they're the 6th best team in the AFC. With that schedule though they could very well get the top Wild Card spot.

I can't see them finishing with less than 8 wins and 11 is entirely possible.

You guys see David Clowney last night.... If you dont remember the Packers drafted him. Just preseason but he did pretty good.

David Clowney caught touchdowns of 70 and 71 yards, and finished with four grabs for 163 yards, in the Jets' exhibition opener Thursday night.

That's how you make an impression. A project coming out of Virginia Tech in 2007, Clowney has bounced around but gets vertical in a hurry. He's caught coach Eric Mangini's eye in practice and could begin pushing Chansi Stuckey and Brad Smith to be the Jets' third receiver, a position that will matter with Brett Favre in town. Stuckey had 44 yards on three grabs Thursday.

Stuckey will end up being the #3 receiver for Favre's Jets. He's more polished of a receiver, not extraordinarily but more than Clowney, and Clowney has a good shot of pushing Smith down to the #5 WR.

I liked Clowney as a project quite a bit. I wish he would have cleared waivers so he could have been on our practice squad. Doesn't really matter though I guess as he wouldn't have made our roster this year anyway.

Saw him in the Eagles game last night and he did look good. He still has some work to do though. He should make the team this year for the Eagles and they have to be excited about his big play ability.

Understand why he could not make our team thought with all of the good WRs that we have on our roster. Watching some of the others teams over the past few days I've really come to realize how deep our WR group is.

I'm not really sure how long our starters are supposed to be in. I'd assume Carson gets one drive, TJ/Rudi aren't playing. I doubt Chad plays much.

Sorry, but I'm crossing my fingers that your heart gets broken, indirectly of course. Its my ideal situation for the Packers.

And that's really not much of a surprise considering that someone out of Grant, Jackson, Morency, Herron, and Wynn has to be cut.

Also, I think its pretty humorous that one of the things that I was looking forward to about the Rodgers era was that the team as a whole would get move coverage as a group but I was wrong, they just covered Rodgers the entire time.

Wynn should be cut, and I won't be at all sorry to see him go. He drops way too many balls and I can't stand his running style. He takes very short steps and spends too much time dancing around. I do hope to see Herron make the roster. I've always kind of liked him and I love the fact that he beat down a burglar with his bedpost.

Rodgers does need to learn to take a bit off of his passes, to throw with more touch. Sometimes he was rifling the ball in when a softer pass would have been more effective.

That'll come. Love his competitive fire.

I got back from training camp today. It was just shells so it was a little disappointing, but I did notice a couple things.

-Rodgers looked very good today. Most of his passes were very accurate and gave the receivers good opportunities to make the catch. However, if it were game situations he would have been leaving the recievers hanging over the middle a few times.

- Rouse was very solid out there for most of the drills I saw. I really want to see him starting soon.

- Jordy looked pretty good out there also. He came down with pretty much everything that came his way. He also seemed a lot quicker than I imagined, but im sure no pads had a lot to do with that.

-Woodson made a couple nice pics on Flynn and Brohm today.

- Jennings is a really stand up guy. He signed a million autographs for the kids and he was out there a lot longer than any other player. I also got to take a picture with my brothers and him, which was pretty sweet.


I got some nice pics from practice that I'll put up for you guys as soon as I get a chance.

Funny how Rodgers is acting like a young favre...critisized for lack of touch early in his career, he'll improve that with time.

Im so happy that Rouse is making noise in this camp. His instincts are something you cant teach. He has to be a starter at some point.

Hawk has a chest sprain and is week to week... He said he might not be ready for the opener. How exactly does one sprain their chest? Hopefully hes ready we need to rock the queens week 1.

Good news is Jennings is finally back practicing hopefully Grant sometime soon. Alot of little nagging injuries.

As long as Hawk is back for the opener, Ill be fine... he looked like he was in line for a monster year...

PS what backers do you see making the final roster?
Barnett, Hawk, Poppinga, Chillar, Hodge all seem like locks... but I would think Bishop and White should make the cut as well. Seven seems like too many though, dont you think?

Bishop and Hodge, they are almost the same player to me. Both good against the run but so bad in coverage you almost can't play them. I like Hodge better, but I think Chillar is the #1 backup to all 3 LB spots right now anyway. I think Bishop gets cut and the better STer out of White and Havner keeps a job.

White is guarenteed a spot. He's not much of a linebacker, but that's not what he's here for. We gave him the contract in the offseason to be a leader of our special teams. Barnett, Hawk, Poppinga, Chillar, White are all locks to make the roster. Hodge should be pretty safe himself too. I think those 5 we'll see for sure on the roster with Bishop a possibility still as a 6th.

The Packers signed DT Rodney Allen from the Odessa Roughnecks of the Intense Football League. No, that's not a video game. It's an actual indoor football league. Allen is 6-feet, 2-inches and 315 pounds. He went to Kansas University via Garden City Community College, and is from Coral Gables, Fla. Ravens RB Willis McGahee is Allen's cousin. The Packers, who worked Allen out last week, wasted no time getting him on the field. He fared very well in one-one drills, and is one of those anchor DTs that are tough to move. Physically, he has about the biggest thighs and calves you'll ever see. Allen is one stout guy. TE Evan Moore (knee) was placed on injured reserve.

The National Football Post, a new pro football blog operated by Andrew Brandt, a former executive with the Green Bay Packers, reports today that Brett Favre's contract with the New York Jets was altered to benefit Favre.

Brandt, citing multiple sources, said Favre's new contract does not include provisions for appearances in behalf of the Jets, as well as other provisions considered standard in professional sports deals.

According to Brandt: "According to multiple sources, there is no backside to the existing contract between Favre and the Jets. Favre's agent, Bus Cook, and the Jets have renegotiated the contract to consist of the identical financial terms from the Packers' contract - 12M this year, 13M next and 14M in 2010 - and nothing more. The language concerning appearances for the club and recovery of bonus due to retirement is no longer part of the deal.

"Favre, if willing, is free to make appearances on behalf of the Jets to promote the team as it starts to play in a new stadium next season, but he has no contractual obligation to do so. Favre can also retire from the Jets at any time and have no obligation to forfeit any of the bonus monies he has received."

I'd be a little worried as a Jets fan

Some bad injury news
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said today that both right guard Josh Sitton and wide receiver James Jones have sprained knees and are week to week;
It appears that Sitton's is the more serious of the sprains, as his status for the season opener on Sept. 8 is in doubt. They'll have to wait and see on both.

Scott Wells (back) and A.J. Hawk (chest) are close to returning but won't play this week;

We need Hawk and Wells more in week 1 then Jones but hopefully all play along with Grant, Bigby, Collins, Pickett, KGB and anyone else I missed with some sort of injury.

he's looked decent, but I don't know how much a role he'll have. He's great on special teams but should be the #4 DE behind Kampman, Jenkins, and Montgomery. If KGB can get back up to speed that puts him at the #5 DE and Jeremy Thompson hasn't shown a ton but he's super-athletic, who knows he even has a shot of being in front of him on the depth chart by years end.

That being said, with Jenkins and Montgomery shifting inside on downs due to injuries and such at DT, he could see a decent amount of time at the start of the year if KGB isn't fully up to speed. I don't expect a ton out of him, but he should get a decent opportunity at playing time early on during the year. Even if he can be a decent pass-rushing DE for us, that combined with his special teams skills makes him a really nice spot on the roster.

We will be getting at least 8 Jets games on CBS this year including week 1. They also have an ESPN monday night game week three and an NFLN game in week 10. I'm sure NBC will pick up at least one Jets game as the flex so Madden can talk about Favre. That's 11 games right there. There are only two games we are guarenteed not to get with them playing at an NFC team the same time the Packers play.

TT has the chips to trade. We're deep at WR, RB and LB. Maybe Bishop or Hodge to be traded to a team that's really deep at DT or has an LB need. Seattle to back up Tatupu if he's out? Maybe a trade with the AZ Cardinals with either a WR or a safety for one of their run clogging DTs and a future draft pick?

Or we could wait to see who gets cut from a team like that. Kenderick Allen again? Not.

EvilMonkey
08-29-2008, 03:10 PM
also agree with lumpkin over Herron as the #4 back. Morency has shown to be a nice 3rd-down back and the only reason I could see to keep Herron over Lumpkin is as a 3rd-down guy, but Morency has shown a nice ability to pick up blitzes and is ok as a reciever out of the backfield. Since we have morency for that role, Herron isnt really needed for that and since he has less upside than Lumpkin, i really dont see that much point to keep him.

I loled when Jon Ryan ran that busted punt into the open field and when Morency was trying to block for him Ryan blew right past him with his speed and then made better open field moves than I've ever seen out of Morency.

I think Dallas would be more appealing for him than Green Bay and he'd go that route first. Brad Johnson is the current backup and Simms would immediately be the #2. He'd be going to a better team and he'd also be playing in the state of Texas, where he went to school. I would be suprised if the Packers went the route of a veteran QB now seeing that they've had the chance all offseason and have not gone there yet.

I really doubt we'd sign him. Flynn is our #2 at the moment and Brohm was a second round pick. There's no room for another QB. I think having a vet QB on the roster is overated by fans. Also I've never liked Simms.

TitleTown088
08-30-2008, 01:04 PM
Meh, not too overrated when you consider the way Brohm and Flynn looked against #2 and three defenses. With that said, I really don't think there is a back up out there that could take the reigns and lead the team deep anyways, so there is little reason to sacrifice developing Flynn or Brohm at the expense of a vet.

Full cuts according to NFL.com:


The Green Bay Packers released 19 players Saturday including running backs Vernand Morency and Noah Herron.

The Packers also placed three on injured reserve.

Also released Saturday were wide receiver Jake Allen, cornerback Scorpio Babers, defensive tackle Conrad Bolston, center Brennen Carvalho, safety Tyrone Culver, linebacker Spencer Havner, tight end Joey Haynos, guard Ryan Keenan, linebacker Danny Lansanah, defensive tackle Alfred Malone, defensive tackle Daniel Muir, cornerback Joe Porter, wide receiver Johnny Quinn, wide receiver Taj Smith, wide receiver Brett Swain, tackle Orrin Thompson and fullback Corey White.

Defensive tackle Rodney Allen, center Junius Coston and long snapper J.J. Jansen were placed on injured reserve.



Bolston, Muir & Malone released! TT is up to something. And both Morency and Herron released? They've got faith in Lumpkin. And somehow Jarret Bush aginavoids the axe. Must like his versatility and special teams play.

All of our LBs were impressive during preseason. Bishop played so well that he got a roster spot even though it means having 7 LBs

He's more of a pass rushing DT but he can also stop the run. I think he'd be a good fit for the Colts cover 2 defense. He was very experienced coming out of college and even has some experience playing DE. Overall though he's nothing more than a role player but will have solid production if given the chance.

No problem. I liked Muir the best out of our UDFA's that we picked up last year and this year. He should be solid if used in a rotation. He's kind of like Quinn Pitcock, only a little less talented and he has an actual comittment to football. ;)

Justin Harrell was placed on the PUP list so he won't be able to play for at least 6 weeks
Junius Coston was placed on IR
JJ Jansen was placed on IR, we currently do not have a long snapper
Hawk and Pickett are hurt, but should be back for the first game
KGB is also hurt, but his status is more unknown, probably won't play
James Jones will miss the first couple weeks of the regular season
Matt Flynn outplayed Brohm all preseason long and should be the #2 QB going into the season
Kregg Lumpkin got the 3rd RB spot over Morency and Herron
All of our LBs were impressive during preseason. Bishop played so well that he got a roster spot even though it means having 7 LBs
Rodgers had a very impressive game in week 3
Our second team defense gave Tennessee's first team offense a hard time in week 4.There's probably more that I'm not thinking of right now, but there are some key points.

Coston is reportedly going to be released with an injury settlement. The Packers were reportedly trying to trade him.

I guess Moll and Jolly have some experience long snapping. My guess is that they'd get a chance to show something before we start looking around. Also how hard can it be to long snap? You'd think Wells or Spitz would be able to do it or at least you'd think that the Packers would give them reps doing it in order to teach them.

I hate our backup QB situation going into the season. Flynn may have "won" the battle but he didn't do it with authority and his only success came against other teams scrubs. I'd rather bring back Craig Nall for a season until Brohm/Flynn can learn the offense better.

Kind of suprised that both Morency/Herron got cut. I thought that Herron was on the outs but Morency was at least a good 3rd down option. I think that Jackson will get alot more snaps this year.

7 LBs is alot of players to carry at one position. I think that we may be looking to trade someone, i.e. Abdul Hodge, to add depth at DT or QB. White is a very good special teamer while Bishop doesn't have the value that Hodge has.

But now to add to what you had to say:

Josh Sitton is out for maybe a month. Wells might also miss a few weeks. That leaves with with Spitz at center with most likely Colledge at LG and Moll at RG. Barbre might have a shot at playing LG but Colledge has the experience which I think helps his cause due to the mix-up on the interior of the line.

Only 3 DTs on the roster. Looks like Jenkins, Montgomery, and Hunter will be moving around alot until Harrell comes back (if he does)

Driver has been dropping alot of balls. His career might be winding down which makes the drafting of Jones and Nelson that much more important.

Hmm that'd be interesting but I don't see it happening. We brought in a little competition early on during the OTA's but at this point it makes little to no sense unless Ryan is hurt.

Granted Ryan looked shaky in the 1st two preseason games but since then he's been outstanding. I wonder if they meant Tampa Bay, let alone just got this report wrong?

That doesn't make any sense, I would be shocked if that happened.

We'll probably bring back Gafford, but using Moll and Jolly wouldn't be terrible. I'm pretty sure James Jones can long snap as well.

EDIT: According to packers.com, we didn't put a waiver claim on Gafford and will look to sign someone else.

Packers signed P Derrick Frost, formerly of the Redskins. It's unclear what this means for Jon Ryan's future, but the guess here is he'll be cut. Frost, 27, averaged only 36.4 net yards per punt to Ryan's 37.6 last year, so it isn't an obvious upgrade. Ryan's overall average was also better.

I'm thinking it will be Peprah. The late preseason work Bush saw at safety will plug him in as the #5 corner (or#4 - don't know where Lee ranks) and the #4 safety. His versatility and special teams play trumps Peprah I would think.

I would think that we'd be able to trade Hodge for at least a late round pick.

But like Smokey said, Ryan is our #1 holder. So now we have a new long snapper who has a week to get ready for MNF and a new holder in Frost. I hope Crosby can adjust quickly.

Maybe, but he was a tackling machine in college and has shown sideline to sideline ability when healthy. I think the Lions would be very interested in him.

I guess I'm not really concerned with releasing Hodge, he likely wasn't ever going to crack our group of Barnett, Hawk, and Poppinga anyways. Its just giving Ryan the boot a week before the season. Something has to be up that we just don't know about.

From what I got out of it was that they wanted consistancy which they got with Frost and that they didn't like the way Ryan's mechanics were progressing.

Apparently Frost was on his way to Seattle for a tryout so the Packers jumped quickly and signed him without a tryout before Frost could get out west.

I don't know, but he's only a punter.

I understand releasing Hodge as well, but to me I'd think some team out there would be willing to part with a late round pick for him. He had no injury concerns coming out of college and has always played his best in big games. Injury risk that he is, I'd be willing to bet that he'll be in someone's lineup this year.

Yeah, he would have never played with us. I too thought he had enough value to get some kind of pick out of him. I thought we should have been trying to trade him since last year too, but I guess no one was interested. I hate to lose Hodge for nothing, but it's not like he'd do anything for us if we held on ton him. He could develop into a decent player, but he will never be better than Barnett. Hawk and Poppinga are irrelevant as he'd only be able to play in the middle for our defense. Even as a backup he's kind of useless to us due to the Chillar signing.


Maybe, but he was a tackling machine in college and has shown sideline to sideline ability when healthy. I think the Lions would be very interested in him.He'd be a terrible fit for the Lions. He can't play in a cover 2. He'd be a great fit in a 3-4 though he's a little undersized. He'll sign fast and should get a shot to compete for a starting job somewhere. Miami or Arizona would be my guess.

I disagree. If you look at cover 2 LBs you'd see that they are small, quick players which Hodge is. My guess would be Detroit, Indy, or even Denver.

The only way he fits into the 3-4 IMO is if he becomes an OLB which he just simply isn't. He doesn't have the size to take on blockers and he's too short to play inside.

That's a terrible assesment of Hodge. Quick is not a word that I'd use to describe him. Cover 2 linebackers have to be able to play the pass well particularly if you're in the middle. Hodge would get eaten alive. He's a run stopping inside backer that'd be a great fit in a 3-4. He's undersized for a prototypical 3-4 backer, but the way he plays that shouldn't matter. That's not to rule out all 4-3 teams, as obviously we drafted him and run a 4-3 and he played in a 4-3 at Iowa, but he'd have to find the right fit. Cover 2 teams are most definitely out of the question though.

EvilMonkey
09-01-2008, 10:20 PM
yeah, he really isnt that fast. Was always known more as a thumper with great instincts and had enough speed to go sideline to sideline but definately not enough to play in a cover 2, especially since on top his 4.7-4.8 speed, he is terrible in coverage, another need for a cover 2 LB. Hodge might be small, but he plays like a big ILB and doesnt fit in a cover 2 at all.

My guess is he's been tagged as injury prone which, if you look at him the last couple of years, he certainly was. He'll sign somewhere but I doubt we could have gotten value in trade - I'm sure TT tried.

I'd love to see Peprah dropped and a DT filling that slot. If it comes to it Bush can fill the 4th safety slot. Hell, if we're down to our 4th safety I don't see much difference between the two.

Perhaps the assessment is Harrell will be back sooner rather than later.

Good point. And if it was foreseen as longer I suppose they would have put him on IR rather than the PUP. If he can return to practice before week 7, the final game before the bye week, then maybe the coaching staff feels they can patch things together with the DE swingmen until then.

Apparently they like Frost more for two reasons: His ability to kick directionally and his consistency when the elements get tough.

* The team will "have more information by the end of the week" on the status of WR James Jones (knee) and other injured players.

Wells suffers setback
By Greg A. Bedard
Tuesday, Sep 2 2008, 02:27 PM
Green Bay - Just when it appeared the Packers were good to go on the offensive line for the opener against the Minnesota Vikings, center Scott Wells' back has flared up again. It is unknown how long he will be out, but it certainly doesn't look good for the Vikings game.


"We're gathering more information on Scott," coach Mike McCarthy said. "I think it was 16 days he's been going through the rehab and this is unfortunate. I know Scott is frustrated that he had a setback at yesterday's practice."

If Wells can't go, the Packers would go back to the line that started against the Titans, with Jason Spitz at center, Tony Moll at right guard, and Daryn Colledge at left guard.

We're likely going to need our defense to hold the fort given Wells being out against the Williams Sisters.

None of the cuts surprised me all that much, though I didn't like cutting Ryan at the last moment, particularly after he improved the past two games. He's Crosby's holder, and with a new snapper and a new holder right before the season starts, I'm nervous about field goals.

Keep things in perspective. A new holder means almost nothing. With the Frost/Ryan switch, well I guess we wanted a more consistent punter. Probably wanted to rely on coverage teams more. We need a punter who can kick in cold weather. His averages will probably improve with a better team. I'm not saying you have to like the move, but a punter change isn't a big deal.

Solid game by the Packers, too exciting at the end. Rodgers showed to be unphased by taking over for Favre. Faced a solid defense and hit over 80% of his throws. Deep ball looked good.

Saw the Favre toss up and Favre still has that magic with the toss-up. Aaron obviously more athletic and can get those first downs and goal line scores with his legs. A great weekend of football, excpet for the effing Bears winning.

Ryan Grant is questionable for Sunday, anyone have any insight? I have him on my FF team, and have Brandon Jackson as a handicap.
They're going to wait to see how he feels on Saturday. Even if he does play it'll probably be limited. Once we get a decent lead he'll likely get pulled. I would try not to start him if you can.

Yeah, they said his hammy was in bad shape after the minny game, and it caused him to not run at full speed on that 56 yarder. I wouldn't expect too many carries.

Also, let me get this straight. You said before this season Ryan Grant wasn't what Packer fans thought he was last... yet you drafted him in FF???

It's a PPR league, I'm guessing that Rodgers will be doing a lot of checking down, and a runningback with catches is worth a ton.

And it wasn't a draft, it's an auction, which means you don't necessarily take the player you like the most, you take the player you think you can get for the cheapest.

Jackson is also having injury problems though. Its supposedly just a minor concussion, but still something you should be aware of.

QFT

I love Grant, but having him tear the Lions a new one and then go out with a hammie is just not worth it. Lumpkin should be able to do at least half of what Turner did, toss in an extra 30-50 by Rodgers and we win this one. If Woodson out, could be dicey with the receivers they have, but we should be able to wn a shoot-out against that terrible defense.

After re-watching Monday night's game, I noticed two things that kinda screwed us.

It's been discussed, but the Driver TD that was called back was definitely a TD. Moll was only 3 yards down field when the pass was released.

KGB's off-side penalty looked more like a perfect jump to me. The flag gave Minnesota a 1st down instead of 4th down and eventually led to the Viking's first touchdown.

He agrees with you.

"I didn't think I was offside," Gbaja-Biamila said of his third-quarter sack and forced fumble against Minnesota that were erased by penalty. "I went home and even watched it on TV. What made it look bad is that no one was moving except me and the ball. I'm assuming the referee did the best he could.
"Maybe to him, it was a tough call. I think when they review it, I think the referee will see that he made a mistake. It was quick. I was quick off the ball."

From McCarthy's press conference today:

(Did Lumpkin earn himself more opportunities?)
Absolutely. I can't say enough about him. I feel like I say the same thing every time you ask about Kregg Lumpkin, but he has taken advantage of every opportunity he has been given here. He had a plus performance in the opportunities that he had. He's physical. He was involved in some special team snaps that he was physical. There are some technical things that he can learn from and he'll improve on. I definitely felt that he improved on an individual basis and he contributed, and I feel very comfortable going with all three running backs.

I don't understand why they only gave him the ball once. If he earned more opportunities you'd think they'd give him more carries that game.

Glad it's after the Cowboys game, though repercussions wouldn't hit in time anyway I guess.

From what I've seen, Rodgers looks for Jennings first on almost every single play. I hardly notice Driver, doesn't go to the TE that much and Jones only seems to get catches when Rodgers is on the run.

And are you complaining??? He hasnt forced it to Jennings or really anyone and has been sucessful everytime. Driver has the same amount of catches as Jennings BTW... and the huge Driver play in the Minny game got whiped out by a stupid penaltly so you forget that. Donald Lee has the third most catches on the team and James Jones didnt play week 1 but still has the 4th most catches on the team behind the other 3 people you mentioned.

Probably noticed Jennings more because he has gotten all the big plays.... But really you have to expect that because Jennings is on the rise and Driver is sometime going to decline.... Thats alright though because Rodgers to Jennings is the future will be amazing!

I'd love to see the streak against the 'Boys continue. I am worried about the health of our offensive and defensive lines, and with having Bigby and possibly Peprah out. Toss in Woodson with a broken toe and I just get worried about facing Witten and TO short-handed. The O-line was solid against Allen and Minnesota, so I'm hoping they clamp down on the pass rush and Rodgers gets the time to throw like he did last year. Grant also not 100%, so we'll see how the run game goes. Last year, McCarthy wasn't afraid to throw it 50-60 times in the game if the run game blew and it worked.After seeing how Phillie passed on Dallas, could be a template on how to attack the Cowboys, though Phillie's offensive line a lot different than ours. I'd take our WRs over Phillies any day of the week, so maybe we can rack up some points.

I'm taking home-field advantage and saying 31-28, Packers.

Both him and Sitton are suppose to practice this week according to McCarthy but sense they've missed alot of time changes might not be made yet unless they really prove their more help at this point and that no injury setbacks will occur if they play.

Most weeks both could have easily taken player of the week, but as good as they were someone else was just a bit better.

Warner threw for more yards with the same number of TDs and no INTs and had a perfect QB rating, I'd give it to him. Cutler and Rodgers is a toss up because while Cutler threw 1 more touchdown he also had an INT.

Tuck had 2 sacks, an INT, and a TD. He gets it over Woodson.

I agree about Warner but 2 Ints in the fourth quarter, one returned for a TD, in a close game (at the time of the first one at least) >>> 2 sacks, INT, TD in a drumming of the worst team in the league.

Woodson sealed a Division victory and his picks came with him having a broken toe and were clutch and the Coach acknowledged him as turning that game around from something that could have slipped away from them.

Warner was pretty amazing. He was the 2001 Warner. I watched the first half of that game and whatever coverage the Fins were in, Warner threw the right pass to the right guy. The funniest to me was when the Cards went three wides and the Fins didn't adjust to it and tried to cover Boldin with LB Ayodele, who was running as hard as he could downfield as soon as the ball snapped and had to watch as the safety wasn't there and Boldin just flew down the field.
