The pack is back---- way back!!!!!!

7 posts in this topic

Way to go packers!!!!!! You got clobbered by one of the worst teams to ever qualify for the playoffs in 73 years of NFL playoff history. 31-17. Not even close. Even Brett Favre in all his glory and one of the best RB (Ahman Green) could do nothing agst a DEF like that of a DIV I college team. Must be proud to be a packer fan. and it happened at that , "hollowed LAMBEAU FIELD". Way to go Pack!!!! Thanks for lettin' us whip your candy ####.!!!!! Sherman's gone to LSU. Nothing more to look forward to in that dismal sportin' state until next fall. Happy Winter packer fans!!!!!!!! grin.gif

Boy I agree. Its hard to believe that they won the division and that the rest of them in it are even worse.

You know the saying "even a blind squirell finds a nut sometimes"??

Well I guess it fits. It will also be interesting to see if they can sign Wahle and Rivera???

Sounds like Wahle and Rivera are waiting for Farve to decide. If Farve is back, the Pack is in the hunt. If not, I think the Purple will win the division next year. That said, the NFC North will still be one of the worst.

From the packer page....

By Dylan B. Tomlinson

Mike Wahle and Marco Rivera are excited about what changes this offseason could bring.

Whether those changes will include either player in a Green Bay Packers uniform next season remains to be seen.

“I’m looking forward to it,” Wahle said. “It’s an exciting part of my life. The uncertainty of it makes it a little interesting, but we’ll see what happens.”

Rivera will become a free agent in March. Wahle is under contract through the 2007 season, but because of salary cap reasons, the Packers will have to release him or owe him a $6 million roster bonus and a $5 million base salary for the 2005 season.

“We put this huge cap number in the middle so they would have to re-sign me or release me,” Wahle said.

If the Packers release him, Wahle will join Rivera in free agency and likely will be one of the most sought-after offensive linemen of this season’s free-agent class. While Rivera is a three-time Pro Bowler, Wahle will be the more coveted of the two since at 27, he is five years younger than Rivera, 32.

Both players indicated a desire to remain with the Packers, but know that may be difficult.

“It’s really up to Mike Wahle and the Packers as to who is going to stay and who’s going to go,” Rivera said. “It’d be nice if they could keep all of us together, but that would be tough to do.”

Rivera has been with the Packers since 1996 and said with the roots he has in Green Bay it would be very difficult for him to leave.

“My family definitely has a lot to do with it. I’ve got three boys, and two of my boys go to school here in town. The decision becomes harder to make,” Rivera said. “If you’re a single guy in this league, you don’t have to worry about moving around. When you’re married and you have a home here and you have boys go to school here, it makes it tougher.”

That said, Rivera said he has to make a decision that will be best for his family, and if that involves leaving Green Bay, he’s prepared to do that.

“This is the part of the business that nobody likes to talk about. The money comes to mind and you’ve got to think about that,” Rivera said. “I’m going to sit down with my agent and my wife and figure out where we’re at and what we want to do. I hope we can come to an agreement. If not, I’ve got to move on.”

Wahle said he’s anxious to see what will happen over the next few months, and said there will a lot of different things that factor in his decision.

“It’s not always about the money. You want to put yourself in a good situation,” Wahle said. “If they want to get me back, they’ll have an opportunity to do so. If they feel like they want to let me go, then on March 2, I’ll have to go find another job. It doesn’t start until March, so we’ll have plenty of time to get something done if they want to.”

Jackson surgery: Nose tackle Grady Jackson said he will have knee surgery in about two weeks to help correct an injury that has plagued him throughout the season. Jackson injured his knee in the season opener against the Carolina Panthers. He then missed five games and also was held out of the season finale against the Chicago Bears.

“It’s pretty bad,” Jackson said. “I could have had surgery when I got hurt. But I refused to. I wanted to still play. That’s why I just kept playing.”

Jackson said he would have the knee scoped initially, but expected to eventually have surgery on the knee. Despite the pain he played with during the season, Jackson said he doesn’t regret the decision to come back when he did.

“I don’t regret it because I love playing football and I couldn’t watch my team play defense and play the way they played,” Jackson said. “I had to do something to come back and help them.”

Pederson’s future: Backup quarterback Doug Pederson spent most of the season on injured reserve with rib and back injuries, and he said he has yet to decide whether he will return or retire.

“I’m not going to make it right away. I’m just going to keep doors open,” Pederson said. “Given everything that’s going to happen this spring at quarterback, with Craig (Nall) and J.T. (O’Sullivan), I think that plays into my decision.”

Pederson said if he decides to retire, he may decide to pursue a coaching job.

“It’s still in the back of my mind. ... I haven’t decided at what level I would want to do that at yet. There are pros and cons at all levels,” Pederson said.

“To me it’s determining which headache you want, which one can you take the most Tylenol and deal with.”

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
