    Look at NE, 18-0 against a team they should easily beat. That's the beauty of football.

    Not AJ, trends in the water is that Barnett may not return.

    I wouldn't be surprised. Where does he fit in now?

    Barnett is a solid talent that can find money elsewhere. Look at Fujita.

    It doesn't mean that he'll go to a winning team, but he may still leave which leaves a bit of a void for a 3-4. One that can be filled, but still.

    Some Packers fans are acting like Saints fans last year.

    I have thought to myself since about mid season that Barnett would probably be gone. The same way I thought Al Harris would be gone. I mean really... they did it against all odds without him. They'd probably like to keep him, but then somebody would go. How do you bench someone who was actively part of bringing home the trophy in favor of Barnett? Considering what has happened I think it would be entirely fair to make Barnett compete for the starting spot if he decides to stay.

    I don't know how Saints fans acted last year...

    The Packers did not pay Bishop in order to pay Barnett, too. While a guy that certainly made a lot of tackles, Barnett was not a play maker. Bishop blows guys up. Doesn't mean they won't look to add some LB depth in the draft, and they need too, but I would be very surprised if they paid/kept Barnett.

    LB, DE, CB, and WR. They need depth at all four. Even WR as DD is winding down and it remains to be seen if James will be back.

    Saints fans acted as if the next year was just a matter of meeting your potential. Trust me, potential isn't everything. Collective teams considering injury and talent had more going for them than the Packers and lost.

    And yet the Packers won. You are so arrogant with one Super Bowl win to think that you can overcome the same hurdles? Hehe. Again, possible, even at that, unlikely.

    Who's being arrogant? I agree the Packers can't rest on their laurels, and I think it's clear Thompson will always be looking to improve the team.

    But if Rodgers stays upright they are going to be very, very hard to beat. He destroyed the Steelers in the Super Bowl.

    I hope I didn't seem arrogant either because all I was saying is that Barnett is not the end all. I honestly believe the LB core was better without him this past year. The beauty in guys like Bishop and Peprah(safety) is they are still humble.

    You think any team not named the Panthers isn't very, very hard to beat? Rodgers has thrown like crap before too, believe it or not.

    This is one super bowl. You'd think we were talking about the Packers before the merger. Steelers and Colts aren't dynasties right now, and we've been in 5 of 6 last Super Bowls. It's tough man, and you're setting yourself up for disappointment.

    It's good to be confident, but losing regardless of how talented you are is 100 times easier than winning. :p

    Don't mean to be rude man, but what are you smoking? I don't remember ever eluding to the Pack as a dynasty. What do the Panthers have to do with anything? Believe me, i'm a realist. I don't take anything at all as a given in the current day NFL. Anyone who does is a fool. I was just simply stating that the Pack will not fall to pieces without Barnett.

    Who did say the Packers are going to be a dynasty? Sheesh. I think they're going to be a very good team for quite some time if Rodgers stays healthy, but counting on Super Bowls is crazy. Though they did kick the crap out of the Steelers in the last one.

    I expect the Pack to be a top tier time for a while. McCarthey is a even keeled coach and Ted Thompson has been acquiring players mainly through the draft with very few forays into free agency. Sir Charles Woodson and Ryan Pickett come to mind. Mainly in house growth.

    Team to watch out for this year---New England---Three (3) !!!! first round picks this years. Must be nice to have desperate trading partners.

    Other teams to look out for this year. The LAWYERS. Is the lockout voided or is it stayed..A few more million dollars later appeals will happen. News stories written. Bank accounts growing.

    I don't understand how they ALWAYS do it. They always have the best position in the draft for some reason. I guess Mr Kraft and Bellichick do know how to do their stuff
