  • Who would you bench first?

    Both Brett Favre and Drew Bledsoe struggled in their opening game and there has been a lot of talk about both of them being benched. My question is who would you bench first and why. On one hand you have Drew Bledsoe who is slow and inconsistent, but he is also a veteran and could pull it together. If you benched him your going with an unproven Tony Romo and a QB controversy which could divide the team. Romo is also a mobile QB who outperformed Bledsoe in the preseason and did it consistently. It comes down to who gives you the best chance to win. Then there is Brett Favre and the Packers. The Packers are terrible and aren't going anywhere fast. Favre still has some talent left, but he is getting older and can't do it all by himself. He is also hindering the progress of Aaron Rodgers by starting. The question is does Brett sit to pave a way for the future which is already under way or keep your pride and keep going out their every Sunday. Then on the otherside of the coin, Rodgers hasn't blown away the coaches either. He still is probably a year away from even beginning to make an impact.

    My conclusion: Bench Brett Favre before Drew Bledsoe. The Cowboys are still considered a playoff team and this was the first game. Plus Bledsoe didn't get much work in with Terrell Owens which could of also made a big difference. While the Packers are absolutley terrible. Instead of getting shutout with Favre behind the gun, have Rodgers do it and gain valuable experience of learning to read defenses and so forth. In the end, the lack of talent to win this season is the ultimate reason that Favre should be benched before Bledsoe.

    Favre for sure, the Packers are going to be a horrible team no matter what so you might as well get the young guy in, but that will never happen because the Packers wouldn't have the guts to bench him.

      I'd love to see the coach that benches favre is his first year as a head coach. people from wisconsin would have his head on a stake. ... PLus favre didn't really play terrible either. He was playing agianst a good defense with inexpirance all around him. The packers have 23 rookies on their roster i think. It's gonna take time before everyone gets onthe same page.

      they get smoked.

              ya those ints were bad, but were they both not in the 4th of a blowout??

              i'm not sure if it all goes onto brett. seems like just an easy target, u can't say that his team is awesome and it was soley him who lost. he wasn't special, and those 2 ints were brutal, but its one game and i see no reason for EVERYTHING to fall on Favre

                  Those two INts didn't matter the game was lost by then dude he was trying to make somthing outta nothing. and one was even all his fault it was a blown route by jennings. I'm not saying favre is the number 1 QB in the league, but look at what he's working with,(Inexpiranced players for the most part) seriously get off his nuts and give the man a few games to work with all these new faces before you tell him to throw in the towel.

                      I really, really hope you are kidding. Favre was awful.

                      They should bench him. They need to build for the future, get Rodgers some PT, so you can build. Favre has even hinted that he doesn't wanna play for that team any more. Not playing ROdgers would be moronic.

                              the packers..i'm from green bay...might sound like a homer...but its true...he made the throws and made good decisions up until the game was outa reach...then he went for the big play...i know the stat line looks bad..but if you watched the game, he did allright. it pains me to say this, but the packers lost because the bears were the better team...there were some bs calls, but they wouldn't have changed the outcome.

                              now i'm curious, did you watch the entire game, or just see the highlights and stat line?
