Packers' 6-10 Failure Not About Favre
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Thanks to a stunning seven losses by four points or less, the Green Bay Packers tumbled to a six-ten record after making it to the NFC title game last season.
But despite a remarkably ugly player-front office dispute that turned training camp into a circus, the Packers didn't fail this season because Brett Favre was playing somewhere else.
Wide receiver Greg Jennings says the Packers were playing those games, not Favre, so they bear responsibility.
And first-year starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers generally met the team's high expectations, throwing for 4,038 yards with 28 touchdowns and only 13 interceptions.
