    Speaking in low tones and a halting voice, Rodgers said, "It's been a
    rough couple days around the facility," and, "a lot of us have been
    really upset."

    "We're all professionals," Rodgers said. "We have to be able to separate
    the on-the-field from the off-the-field stuff. And make sure when
    you're at work, you remain focused. But we're human as well, and the
    human element is that it's on your mind. You're thinking about it.
    You're thinking about Joe."


    "What do you say to someone who has lost their son in a tragic way like
    this?" Rodgers said. "At 28, there are no words I can say to comfort
    him. I wanted him to know how much I care about him and [his wife] Diane
    and the family and I'm praying for him.



    "But I think once we get in here on Wednesday, it's going to be
    about beating the Giants and making sure we're doing everything we can
    do to play our best game."


    This is a horrible situation. I am asking this question as objectively as possible especially being a parent.....

    Do you think the Packers will rally around this and try to get an emotional edge out of it or do you think it is going to affect the way they practice, prepare and ultimately play the game?

    I know a football players mentality is to use it as motivation and to channel it in a positive way but I just imagine it's going to be hard for some of them and especially the coach to keep his mind off things. Sometimes people say they want to play/coach to get their mind off it.

    I also think it bodes well for us that they have not really played in 3 weeks. Last time they played they were getting shredded by Detroit. I think it will take them a quarter or so to knock the dirt off so hopefully we can capitalize early and often.

    Dezz-Wait a minute, how did you get out of buying the playoff tix? I thought it was mandatory? It's a forced sale as per the terms of the psl agreement. (fine print)

    You may very well be in jeopardy of losing your seats now. You better call the office.

    To be honest....I don't think they will play any different. no better, no worse. they are professionals.
    everyone can SAY they would use this for motivation, but, I just thinkin the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter really.</P>


    edit - ohh...i meant to point out that the time since they have last played is the only thing that would like affect them.</P>

    Jet's players are screaming to get rid of Sanchez. They can't stand him and have trouble playing with him. They are requesting a new QB.

    did they get anybody specifically that said they want sanchez out?
    [/quote]yea i kind of feel bad for him. he reminds me of eli in a way. i think he has talent, he just needs time to grow. of course i dont tell jet fans that.

    but i do tthink hes a major reason the jets didnt walk away with at least 1 superbowl the previous two years.

    Dezz, I'vve been looking for you. Did you go to game Sunday? What did you think about fan noise at that one? It was insane![/quote]no i didnt. they sent me a letter but i wasnt going to shell out 400 bucks. i had my doubt about them as well. They got me believing now. Cowboys game was ****ing nuts. REEEAL loud. everyone was violent lol
    [/quote]Sorry Dezz but that move is straight ***** made!!!!!

    You didnt shell out 400 bucks cause you thought we had no chance???
    You DO know that if we dont get in that money goes towards next seasons tickets, its not like they take ur money and burn it

    [/quote]Dezz, I'm only trying to help you out, the way I understand it from the contract and my friends is it's a forced buy. I would get on the phone to the office asap and see what you can do to smooth this thing over. I'm interested to see what they tell you.
