Packers Coach Sherman Has To Go: I would not blame Favre if he retired today after the loss last night. His recievers quit on him and the Sherman has proved he can not coach. That was the worst showing of a team that just gave up in a long while, where was there pride?

GBFan, I am sure you are hurting considering the kind of season the Packers have had, but this is the type of post that is bound to bring out calls for you to "Get Your Own F**king Blog." It comes across as having an ax to grind. The article has nothing to do with calls for Sherman to resign or Favre's retirement. Sportsfilter is not a place to use a front page post to air your grievances with your favorite team's coach, etc.

Terrapin, Relax. This is just a fan "hurtin for certain" over a terrible loss. We an all give this fan the understanding that we all have had similar heartbreak defeats. Believe me, I'm a Cowboys Fan.

you have a point terrapin. I posted the link about 10 minutes after he did, but since mine was second, they removed it. Mine read: There was plenty of quit in the packers and farve. Whats with the monday night football spankings the last couple weeks? The Eagles were missing 10 starters including mcnabb. Even with farve at the healm, greenbay got a whoopin. Do you think this should be bretts last sign he needs to step aside and call it quits? PS. greenbay isnt my favorite team

Isn't Sherman still with the Pack solely because Favre said he would retire if they fired Sherman last year? How'd that work out?

yerfatma , that is incorrect, that statement he made was for next year which we havent played out yet....The problem with the packers is not the coach, its the personel ,and mike sherman the g m is to blame ,not mike sherman the coach and hes already been fired from that job. give ted thompson til next year , see what he can do, and then start calling for his head as well, the way , if they fire sherman who they gonna get?

This is just a fan "hurtin for certain" over a terrible loss. No doubt that's true, but terrapin's still right. The fan has my sympathy, but it's still a bogus FPP.

Why is it when the super EGO athlerte do not do what they are paid for, some one else has to take the hit. When they do what they are paid for, they dance and sing in the arena to indicate how great they are. When they just hang around they still get their inflated pay check.

Since monday night football is not going to be on abc anymore and madden is not going to espn. He might be looking for a job. Sounds like a good coach to take GreenBay back to the bowl.Ok wont happen but its a good thaught. They also need to get rid of Carrol.

As a ravens fan, this is the worst thing that could've happened to us. Now we get a worse draft pick and another year of Billick/Boller ineptitude. Boller will be starting next year based on this performance, and as soon as he gets back in a meaningful game against a team that hasn't quit he will be awful again. The Ravens wil go 7-9 or maybe 8-8 next year and pretend they are making progress. Sometimes you're better just dynamiting the foundations and starting over.

Do you think this should be bretts last sign he needs to step aside and call it quits? Not as long as people insist on making exuses for him. He was simply awful last night, but people will keep blaming everyone but him. yeah, he has a bad team around him, but so does Kyle Boller.

Whats a Blog? Is that the scary thing on fire in the first Lord of the Rings movie?

Brett is/was a great QB, but I am happy to remind everybody that sports, like life, is cyclacle. The Bears have been at Favre's mercy for too long, and it is great to see this going down as it is. Favre's biggest enemy may be proving to be his own ego. As much as I hate him because I'm a Bears fan, it still hurts to see anybody as good as he stick around longer than they should. Leaving after last year would have kept him on his pedestal; now he just looks pathetic, as does the rest of the organization. The Bears, like other teams, have been losing good players to injuries for years; now the cheeseheads can have a taste of what it's like to play a season with half a team. But really, GB's management hasn't been the same for years- they will be sowing thier bad seed for more than just a year or two. And after last Sunday's game, the Bears' D is going to turn whatever QB GB puts on the field into roadkill (I can't wait!)

drjimmy11, you are absolutely correct. When the people begin to realize that a great QB can have bad days, (and throwing 3 interceptions isn't what I'd call good) the uproar has to be rethought. I only disagree with the push of this in one respect. Sherman had the GM job and he screwed it up. He has the Head coach job and he did OK for two seasons, but nothing to write home about. But the Packers still have a snowball's chance in hell of spreading this out to six seasons, as Bart Starr did as HC. He sucked big time, and they got rid of him. But Favre has said he'd stick around if they got Mariucci, and one could only hope. The Lions have an owner who does not care. The Packers have no one owner, the team is owned by the fans, and run by a board of directors. Hopefully they will choose to rid themselves of Sherman gefore he turds up another year.
