Packers Update

A last game of the season win wasn't enough to have Mike Sherman keep his job. Makes you wonder what they were really thinking by giving him a two year contract extension earlier this year. As for the upcoming list of NFL head coaching changes, Mike Martz, Dom Capers, Mike Tice, Sherman are all unemployed. Soon to take the axe? Detroit, Oakland, maybe the Jets? Stay tuned.

The upcoming opponents for 2006.

Home: Chicago, Detroit, Minnesota, Arizona, St. Louis, New England, N.Y. Jets, New Orleans
Away: Chicago, Detroit, Minnesota, San Francisco, Seattle, Buffalo, Miami, Philadelphia

Number of playoff teams: 3. Chicago, New England, Seattle. Not a bad set of teams in that group. The Jets, New Orleans, Detroit, San Francicsco, Arizona and St. Louis are teams that could still be bad. Philadelphia, Buffalo, Miami are tougher tests. Minnesota is most likely a changed team without Mike Tice but too early to tell where they will fall. Same with Detroit and changes happening in the city that will host the final game....errr...other than the Pro Bowl.

No idea what Favre will do without Sherman now. His chances of coming back for another go around more than likely will be gone with Sherman.
