Tom Oates is an excellent writer, but I disagree with his assessment of the Packers season and decision on the Favre/Rodgers decision: http://www.madison.com/wsj/home/sports/packers/316019
The Pack's problems start with defense, and are followed by inconsistent running. In many ways, A Rodg is the bright spot in this season. This team would not have a better record with Favre at QB. It would have a better record if the defense from the beginning of last year were still playing.
