Do you believe the Packers are a lock to win the NFC-N?

    I remember the Kitties starting out well but the bloom came off that rose fast. I'll wait until the first quarter of the season to be over before I can even make any type of prediction. I'm hopeful for more developing players and minimal injuries to get a bead on the push to where we will be in the NFCN.

    -One game, too early, stay even keel. There's going to be some rough ones. Don't get too high or low just hope for adaptive coaches, development and a sense of urgency.

    What always amazes me about Detroit, is how a team with that much talent, can perform so poorly every year. Over the past 10 years that team has had incredible player talent, but it's like they have a disease there - a "losing disease."

    I can't wait to see the next 3 or 4 games played by the Bears. And the same goes for the Packers. By the end of week 4 (the Packers bye week) we'll have a better idea of how good both of our teams are. At least we'll have a general idea at that point. My hope is that our team continues to get better each week for the first 8 weeks (our bye week is week-8). And then in week-9 we can go into Lambeau and make a statement by taking the Packers out bigtime. Trestman seems to be a brilliant tactician as well as a solid coach. I expect he's already crafting something special for the Packers. He just seems like that kind of guy. He realizes, as we do, that the road to the championship goes through Green Bay. He has to blow them up to get to the promised land.

    Still surprised that some view Trestman as a rookie HC. This guy has a resume & proved it in Cincy by the adjustments he made, not the normal surprises rookie HCs get away with early in the year. He kept us calm & focused for 60 minutes relying our roster's strengths while not disregarding our weaknesses. That alone changes our knee jerk reactions that are left over from the LS era.

    However, until we prove we're up to the GB task, GB holds the cards & still concern me when it comes to the North. Having said that, we look to have at least a slugger's shot to steal their thunder but it sure won't be easy. Even with a weak OL/marginal at best run game & holes on D, Rodgers & his receivers gave the 49ers fits. That offense is one of those that doesn't lose games but ends up just running out of time.

    I have faith but that's not the same as having confidence.

    Minny/Lions? Those I have confidence about...

    I've been thinking about this since our win.

    1. Trestman has considerable experience in the NFL and he's been a part of some amazing teams, developing incredible NFL player-talent.
    2. In 5 seasons as head coach in the CFL he won it all twice - the CFL equivalent of winning 2 Super Bowls in 5 years.

    Yet some people talk like he's some young kid getting his first coaching experience. What a bunch of crap. The guys been around forever - and been a winner. He seems like a rare combination of being BOTH a brilliant tactician AND a gifted player developer (an incredible motivator, even though he's not a crazy screamer/yeller like Ditka).

    I believe the Packers are not locked in because this is a good division. I hope the Bears are the ones to claim the throne, but I think it could be any of the teams. My vote was against GB, not really for the Bears. =(

    - I don't bet against Adrian Peterson. (period) Yes, Ponder leaves me pondering, but why can't they can get the job done like they have in the past? Kalil is only in his second year, and while their maybe questions about pass protection, I do not question the run blocking.

    - The Lions can be scary. Not just, Suh cheap shot scary. Bush fits them rather nicely and I consider him a real threat. One that is a very nice counter to Megatron. Stafford will sling it and like it or not their D Line is a good one.

    & incredible that he's obviously won over the players & immediately diminished the LS hangover they were naturally feeling from losing a coach they liked/respected.

    Players aren't fooled by an upbeat, 'we're going to beat the world' rah-rah approach nor are they stupid to his accomplishments/successes. Them buying in so early is a great barometer of the confidence we're seeing on the field & it sure isn't from just a threat of losing starting/playing time.

    This guy is the real deal & appears to be a perfect match to Emery to boot. Bear fans should be feeling pretty Damn fortunate to having lightning strike twice at Halas Hall...

    I voted yes because of the way this was worded. If it were "Are the Packers the favorites?", I might have answered differently, lol

    It's not how I'm approaching it,

    Trestman HAS BEEN around. Trestman wasn't some positions coach or OC before coming here.

    He's ALREADY had a GOOD handle on game planning already which has given him the experience ,.. aside being the QB whisperer he is It's still Football in the CFL. Sure the rules are different,..the field is different,STRATEGY is the still the name of the game though. where the ball needs to get into the endzone for a score

    Tresty's a proven winner in the CFL , and has been very successful at his forte

    I can 't help but believe in the man and hope those winning ways follow him along to here through his perseverance ...

    Trestman wasn't my first choice ,... but he keeps winning me over.

    It all started with his staff selection,...and that staff is making one complete and cohesive unit out of this team,...something the many of us haven't seen in a long long time.
    The man is moving mountains and moving forward ,... he just moved one big mountain in overcoming a 10 point deficit and defeating one of the AFC's top dawgs
    I believe we've only just begun to witness ,..what the man can do on a full and grander scale

    the Sun Times said it best this past Monday

    WON ,... to build upon ! !

    Agreed........if we had an above average offense last year to go with our turn over forcing defense we would have made the playoffs regardless if the Vikings won or lost that last game.

    I agree with you.

    Trestman is a diamond in the rough, I applaud GM Emery for going beyond the norm and thinking outside the box and going north to get an offensive minded coach (compared to same ol same ol of getting college coaches and making them nfl head coaches etc...) to go with our already awesome defense.
