These rankings are out of whack and won't be updated until Tuesday.


The Lions beat the Vikings ( 0 - 3 ) and the Redskins ( 0 - 3 ) and lost to the Cardinals ( 1 - 2).

Aaron Rodgers has a propensity to dominate the game after a poor outing. Perhaps I'm overlooking the Lions here when I say that the Packers and Rodgers are going to beat the Lions by double digits October 6th. I think the Packers will be aiming to make a statement and they will also have two key players in their defense return (my prediction) in Casey Hayward and Morgan Burnett. Packers should also have James Starks, Eddie Lacy along with Johnathan Franklin at RB.

When I've watched Bears/Lions mathcups, it has been a closely contested game and I could see the Lions edging the Bears and improving to 3 - 1. I think this works in the Packers favor as they will get maybe a little more 'amped' for the game to make up lost ground.

Not to look past this Lions game (players never should do that, but I guess we fans have that luxury), but next is a tough road game with the Ravens. Then, we have a long string of very winnable games basically all the way to December 8 against the Falcons - and at home, even that one shouldn't be too difficult. I'd really like for the Packers to play like the Packers - which really is all it takes to beat ANYBODY - when they go to Baltimore.

I see this season as shaping up to be kinda a parity year - not very many outstanding teams - maybe not extending beyond San Francisco, Seattle, and Green Bay. Unless somebody else emerges - the Cowboys for example, this "tough" appearing schedule really ain't that bad.

It's a little early to talk about winning out, especially with the weaknesses the Packers have shown in some areas, but looking at the schedule, I just have to ask, who's gonna stop us?

I'm pretty excited about this running game. I think it has the potential to take over.

Packers 45

McCarthy, dealing with wife unit's PMS, enters game extremely cranky, and stays that way, not doing the usual foot-off-the-gas after Packers go up big early. Capers forgets to put prevent defense on his playcalling card, never uses it, instead attacking Stafford for four full quarters.

Rodgers: 27-29, 5 TDs (Jones, Jones, Jones, some tight end, Jones), 400+ yards
Defense 4 INTs, one for a pick 6.
Suh, misunderstood, ejected in first quarter.

Only 5 TDs? Not optimistic enough. [grin1]

Agree, although I'm betting he has James Jones in at least one FFL!!!!

That concerns me as well.
This game (and season so far) reminds me of the 15-1 season. Our defense has shown no ability to stop anyone, and if our offense doesn't play lights out, we lose.
And our O was less then stellar last game.

If CM3 isn't healthy and playing, we are in big trouble.
As if we don't get Burnett and Hayward back, we won't stop anyone.
Bush is an amazing player, and watching him last week scared the heck out of me. I can see him putting up BIG numbers.

Bush has had a couple of amazing games, but he's still the same guy who was such a disappointment with the Saints - and he's coming off an injury also. I don't fear him nearly as much as I fear Stafford getting enough time to throw to big receivers. I expect our offense to come up big also - the threat of an effective running game allowing Rodgers to dominate, BUT, even though the Packers have owned them, Detroit does still have that talented D Line. Our O Line better come out ready to play.

Green Bay 41 Detroit 21.

If Detoilet beats us, it's gonna be with the passing game.

On offense, we need BALL CONTROL. Burn clock. Wear down their Dline, which is the strength of their team. Make them pursue sideline to sideline play after play. Give Stafford fewer opportunities to throw to Megatron and the Pettigrew by RUNNING DOWN THE CLOCK while we have the ball.

I don't care if we go NO HUDDLE. But when you get up to the LoS, run the game clock down between plays.

Also, GET THE BALL OUT in less than 2.5. If Aaron tries to hold the ball in order to throw deep, he's gonna get stomped on.

Anybody think any of those things is gonna happen?

Letting the Bengals off the hook has made this a big game. Fortunately for us it comes after a bye week and is at home.

The Pack cannot afford to slip in this game. You don't lose after a bye week playing at home against a division team. If we do it will be an indicator that the Packers have let the division come back to them.

2-2 vs. 1-3 and going on the road next week to Baltimore? Like I say. This is a big game.

I predict the D will continue to do well against the run and hopefully with Burnett back the pass d will fare better. The run D has been the most consistent part of any phase of the team and should get more credit for how well they have performed.

Bush did look really good against the Bears. He was a great pick up for the Lions.
Their D-line looked very good as well and Suh didn't shit the bed.
If Stafford gets hot look out.
Not to mention we have won 21 straight against the Lions at Lambeau and streaks are made to be broken.
This game scares the shit out of me!!

OK, I'll bite. Hell no, I don't think any of those things are gonna happen, and I really don't think they SHOULD happen.

Ball control is overrated. Nothing wrong with it, but not essential. I'll take big plays any day.

The Packers have been running more No Huddle because it works, and part of the reason why it works is not giving the other team's D a chance to think. Taking the play clock down between plays (other than at the end of the game to run out the clock) lessens that benefit.

If Rodgers gets rid of it quick sometimes to avoid the pass rush, fine. But I'm all for having him take the time to throw it deep even if that means using his legs to buy that time.
