What good can come of this Packers loss?

OK, Packer fans, let's look to the silver lining of this tarnished 2008 season. Yes, there are some good things to be said about it, with two games remaining. Among them:

  • There are only two games remaining.
  • We can at least win our last game of the season by beating the Lions...can't we? Oh, dear God...
  • We will have a much easier schedule next season.
  • We'll get a higher first round pick for GM Ted Thompson to trade down or use to pick a bust.
  • We'll have a new defensive coordinator.
  • We'll have a new special teams coach.
  • Da Bearz still suck.
  • By next season, coach McCarthy might be able to devise a play call to move the ball 1 yard in three plays.
  • Next season, there might actually be something called a "pass rush" that's part of the defensive scheme.
  • Rookie TE Jermichael Finley will have had a full year to learn where to line up, who to block and how -- at 6'5" -- to catch a jump ball in the endzone.
  • There are only about 5 spots to drop to actually be the worst run defense in the's not like it's a major drop off or anything.
  • Losing to really bad teams helps build character.
  • Da Bearz still suck. Oh...did I say that already?

  • Now I'm sure there are more positives to all this. There has to be, right? I mean, when you are looking at only the second losing season since 1992, something good has to come of it all. If there is a God.
