Hmmm.... Let's see if this sounds like a recipe for disaster:
A wild, gunslinging QB
Game One of the season against arguably the NFL's best defense
Honestly, Favre's 2006 may not last 60 minutes.
Don't forget a Good Defense that is certainly capable of handling the Bears offense.
The Bears Offense isn't Favre's concern. If his line doesn't get any better (and there's no reason think they will) he's going to get knocked silly back there. Favre was sacked ten times in his last five games, and hurried/knocked down I don't know how many times. Ten of his 29 INTs came in those final five games, too.
Ah, I see. I was talking more about the Packers as a team.. you're talking about just Favre.
Well, the line is
better than last year, though we're still mediocre at best at this point. The new blocking scheme should help things as well.
I've got a feeling that whoever's kicker does better will win the game.
