Visit to McCarthy's Hometown...........Kenny Mayne

Wednesday, September 26, 2007


Ok so it's been awhile since my last post. The Packers beat the Chargers 31-24 last Sunday in an exciting game that had fans on the edge of their seats. Favre led the Packers to a come from behind win with a late 4th quarter TD pass to Greg Jennings with a little more than 2 minutes to go in the game. The Packers Defense stepped up and intercepted Phillip Rivers pass to seal the game. Nick Barnett ran back the interception to the 2 yard line and Brandon Jackson ran it in for the insurance score.

Favre had a magical game and tied Dan Marino with 420 career TD passes. Favre was 28-of-35 for 369 yards and three touchdowns. McCarthy put the ball in his hands and let Favre win the game himself. The Pack ran the ball about 19 times and frequently had an empty backfield and 4 receivers spread wide. Favre picked apart the Chargers weak secondary and helped them improve to 3-0 and on top the NFC North Division. Writers from Fox Sports have the Packers ranked 5th in the Power Rankings and fans are excited with the quick start.

Nobody expected the Packers to come out on fire and almost nobody expected them to be 3-0 going into this Sunday's match up against the Vikings.
