    So, did anyone see Couch's dismal performance last night? He's already getting booed in Lambeau. It's kinda sad, but I never thought he lived up to the hype coming out of college.

    Sander had a pretty good night, nothing spectacular, although apparently better than he had been punting. Kenny Peterson had some good plays.

    Couch has been nursing a sore arm and has only been in camp a little over a week. He'll be fine.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    Man, I hope so. I'm a huge Packers fan, and was really pissed that they didn't either draft a QB or pick up a solid young guy to take over for Favre in a year or so. Then, I see that they pick up Couch- I damn near had a stroke!

    He may have some talent in him that was hidden behind the problems in Cleveland, but he hasn't done a thing since getting drafted. Tim Couch is one of the last guys I would have gone after.

    GO PACK GO!!!

    B.J. had 10 punts for a 36.5 average. Numbers like that will get him a
    job elsewhere. He better get it fixed. I did see one nice punt from his own end zone.

    First, you guys are all missing one big thing as to why Couch is going to be a successful QB in Green Bay after Favre retires. Anything that pisses off Browns fans will happen. It is fate that Couch will develop into a great QB and probably win a Super Bowl. Why? Because it would piss off Browns fans to see a former QB that failed in Cleveland and was booed by the fans turn into an NFL great. You can't mess with fate.

    Secondly, and more importantly, why people base their thinking towards a player on one NFL pre-season game is beyond me. The pre-season means very, very little in how great a player will perform. If you play fantasy football long enough, you will find out that more often than not you will get burned on picks you make based on pre-season performance.

    Grad,

    I agree with you that the preseason isn't a fair judge of what will happen in the regular season; however, it's still pretty bad when you get booed in the preseason.

    At least I know Grad and I live in some of the same little dark paranoia corners of the universe...

    Oh the darkness and fear that scenarios like this bring me in the middle of the night...

    I hope he does well too. I always felt sorry for him because he was drafted by Cleveland. Farve is very durable but you have to have someone to put in if something happens. Also, it's probably time to start working on developing someone for the future.

    sushi... when were the fans booing Couch? I attended around 25 games at Lambeau durring the last last 6 years and NEVER heard anyone boo a player (unless they played for the bears or the Viqueens :) ). Green Bay isn't Cleveland... they don't boo thier players. The fans treat the players like family... even after they leave. They are not a bunch of drunken assholes that think the players owe them something.

    They had it on SportsCenter...the crowd booed after Couch threw a pass right into the defensive line.

    hmmm.. must have missed it. I have never heard it happen and I went to a few ereally crushing losses (Altanta in the playoffs two years ago) Before I left everyone was excited for him to be there. No one thinks he'll be Brett Favre but I think the expectation is there that he will be solid enough to take the Packers to the playoffs if something were to happen to Brett. I was only able to watch part of the game and thought he was doing alright... see what happens when I get busy with the new job?!?!?! :) I think he'll be OK but he will never be another #4.
