Dress Rehearsal Three

Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila standing on the sideline with a bruised knee announces that the Green Bay Packers are going to the Super Bowl this year. It’s his variation of the idea that you can not achieve a goal unless you believe the goal is achievable. Contrary to the popular expression not everything is possible, but the improbable remains mathematically viable until the point of elimination.

In the TV banter during tonight’s exhibition loss to Jacksonville is the story of how before each season starts, Brett Favre thinks the 4 win team of two years ago is going to be good but has no idea of what to expect from last years 8 win team. Now after three intersquad skirmishes the prospects for the upcoming season are still murky, but it seems to me that any success will depend on the defense keeping opponent scores under twenty because the offense still looks really suspect.
