Favre's Miracle Falls Short

I feel like I just got punched in the stomach. Repeatedly.

What a 4th quarter performance, only to have it fall short. Once Green Bay got the ball back with 2 minutes left, there wasn't an ounce of me that didn't think they were going to win that game.

Last week after Griese's "incomplete pass" that was really a fumble and a touchdown, I asked my dad "What else could possibly go wrong for this team?" Well....down 19 points with 6 starters out on offense, yet another WR in the hospital after being carted off on a stretcher (This is 3 since the Jacksonville game of last season), they come all the way back and lose on a dropped pass that would've come really close to getting them in field goal range.

They've now lost their last 3 games by a total of 6 points. This feels like 2000 Michigan, just with all the losses right in a row. Or the anti-1999 Packers when Favre led 3 last-second wins in the first four games.

God this hurts.

Until this team gets healthy and plugs some serious deficiencies, they are gonna be sub .500.

The run game stinks, which puts more pressure on an already thin passing game. The o-line is terrible on run blocking, injureis and all.

The defense hits hard when they tackle someone, but getting them to tackle is another story.

I almost cried last night...really. It hasn't been this bad since the 80's.

I'm already counting down until they get the #1 pick in the draft and trade down for a bunch of picks to whoever wants Leinart the most.
