Thanks for a great season, Pick of the Week fans...see you next year at Planet Magic in Denmark, WI!

Boy, this'll be incentive for Favre to come back.

Green Bay's free agency moves (Packers.com)

The Pack couldn't come to terms with Mike Wahle, the starting left guard the last 4 seasons, and let him go to free agency to avoid an $11 million cap hit.

Even worse, starting RG Marco Rivera may be gone as well. Green Bay didn't even tender him an offer, and he says he doesn't expect to be back at Lambeau in 2005. (Courtesy WBAY-TV...my employer)

And on top of it all, the man who filled in at center for the injured Mike Flanagan in 11 of 13 games, Grey Rugamer, is gone too.

Might be safer for Brett to stay down in The Kill. Ye Gods.

Panthers close to signing Wahle (sportsline.com)

Love this move for Carolina... the article mentioned him possibly playing right tackle... I don't know much about him, besides reading numerous articles about him being one of the top guys out there, but I wonder if it'd be possible for him to play right guard and then they could draft Alex Barron in the draft like 99% of the mock drafts have them doing. Great move, though.

Thank god. I was going to mention that I hoped the Panthers would have the sense to pick up the Packer's O-Line, but I didn't want to jinx 'em.

And it gets worse. (Green Bay Press-Gazette)

Not only is Wahle talking to Carolina, but the Cowboys are trying to sign Rivera in time to introduce him along with their 2 defensive free agent signees (I heard on TV this morning.)

Plus, rumor is DB Darren Sharper won't accept a pay cut, and might thus get cut from the team. Makes sense...the one goddamn decent player in the secondary. Let's get rid o'him, eh?

At least Bhawoh Jue might leave for San Diego. How he wasnt't on the same train outta town as Jamal Reynolds is beyond me...but then again, so is the logic of letting the f'n team fall apart like this.

Rivera's officially a Cowboy, I guess.

Parcells wasn't kidding when he told the team that some major changes were going to take place. Marco's a pretty good player, and a big loss, I'd imagine.

My dad (50 year plus Packer Backer) thinks that Rivera and Wahl know Favre's retiring and that's why they left.

The best offensive line in the NFL is no more.

But I'm not the only one

And the world will live as one

The Vikes will rule this division without a problem. No Moss means they can run their talented crop of backs more freeing up receivers. Their D should improve as well as their team chemistry.

Except that it was common knowledge going into the off-season that Wahle wouldn't be back. He was signed to a back loaded contract that included some ridiculous salary figure for this year. While he had publicly commented that he'd like to stay, he was going to get huge money to leave.

Rivera was the same story -- he was going to get some big bucks to go elsewhere, and the Packers couldn't afford to keep paying their lineman big bucks, especially with that awful defense.
