Packers- 38
“Aints”- 24

After watching the Oakl....Los Ang....I mean Oaklan.....Las Vegas Raiders beat New Orleans, I feel a whole lot better about our chances of getting a win this coming Sunday!

Que the *teeth sucking noise*. I can't imagine Nola laying an egg two weeks in a row.

The Saints were without Michael Thomas against the Raiders. His high ankle sprain could sideline him again vs the Packers. Davante Adams too is injured, but for him it is his hamstring.

I say rest Adams until it is 100% safe for him to run full out and not risk making the injury any worse. IMO, GB's offense is not the concern, but the defense may be.

The Saints had a poor performance against the Raiders on the road. They will host the Packers at home and will be tough to shut down follow a loss.

GB - 27

NO - 24

Empty stadium will favor us. Turf will help Aaron Jones and Davante Adams. Irvin too if he plays.

I think Saints had a ton of penalties. I wouldn't expect that two weeks in a row.

Matt has a way of winning theze games.

Remember week one in Chicago last year? Week two In Minnesota? Week four in Dallas?

Not to jinx, but we'll at least be in it.

Close but no cigar.

Cheesey was slightly closer.

There were a few frustrating plays/calls but a win is a win. This one was a total team effort including special teams.

We have no depth at DT and I don't believe CB either...

And Safeties are just making more mistakes this year...

The ILBers are young and inexperienced... they seemed to throw them all out there to see who could handle it best and the answer was none of them... okay, maybe that's over kill, but they looked mentally lost on how to keep up at times... Summers made mistakes but didn't look mentally lost.

Taysom Hill 

Three years later and the Saints are still using Hill for gadget plays while Brees can't throw with accuracy over 10 yards. I'd necromancer the shit out of this thread but it was locked.

I'm not sure if I agree on DT-depth.... we definitely have DT depth - Lowry, Lancaster, Keke are decent pieces but miscast as DT-1. Neither is capable of getting consistent penetration or holding the trenches when asked to take on double teams. Alongside Kenny Clark that trio isn't bad (especially when lined up with Gary/Z or P Smith along the LOS), but we lack a true big run stuffer in the Ryan Picket / Grady Jackson mold. Not sure how likely it is with logistics/salary cap, but I'd do naked backflips on the street if we could land Leonard Williams (Giants tanking, maybe willing to settle for recouping the 3rd+5th they gave up).

The Safties... I'm just perplexed on. I can understand the missed tackles with lack of pre-season... but the bad angles is baffling. Darnell Savage looks like a freshman getting his first reps on the football field, which should not be the case. Amos is as advertised: keep things in front of him, not a playmaker. I am curious whether Will Redmond was the dime back tonight, or whether they subbed him in place of Savage in moments. Can't blame them if the latter (because Savage has been that subpar) but definitely worrying that Savage looks to have regressed on reads and angles.

Finally, I came away much more at ease with our ILB play after Kirksey's injury. Wishing him nothing but a quick return (and hopefully a very minor injury), but both Barnes and Summers looked more alive near the LOS than Kirksey. I don't hold out much hope for Oren Burks, but don't think the drop off form Kirksey to Summers/Barnes is much (and may even be a slight positive).

Overall though, this level of play by the D actually has me very encouraged. The issues - a behemoth DT, Safety play - can be addressed (although if they could get that DT off the street, they'd have done it by now). But to have a D that is making plays to create chances at turnovers and an Offense that can force opposing teams to pass and play to the strengths of this D, the Packers are quickly having me view them as a contender that is better than last year's team. Did not expect to be thinking that, so props to the team thus far.

beast (14h) : As long as they have excuses, MM will stay at least 3 years... they refused to let the prior guy go until his contract was up. Cowboys need more defensive talent and they got no cap space.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Someone might be traded, lol. Report: Bengals tell Carlos Dunlap to stay home Wednesday
Cheesey (28-Oct) : The Cowboys stunk WITH Dak as QB. But maybe J.Jones will give MM another year before he cans him.

Zero2Cool (27-Oct) : Wisconsin is potentially down to its fourth string quarterback for the next 21 days because of overly restrictive Big Ten policies on positive covid test results

Cheesey (27-Oct) : I don’t know anything about him. Is he any good?
Zero2Cool (27-Oct) : From Twitter... Packers are bringing in veteran WR Seth Roberts, who was released by the Panthers earlier today. A source said the plan is to sign him to the practice squad initially.

Zero2Cool (26-Oct) : @Gil_Brandt Davante Adams has two games this season of 150+ receiving yards and 2+ receiving touchdowns. The rest of the NFL's receivers has two such games in 2020 (Justin Jefferson and Tyler Lockett)
Cheesey (26-Oct) : Mertz, the Wisconsin Badgers QB.

wpr (26-Oct) : Yoop Black is a PS player called up for the game.They sent him back down already. I hope Amos gives him the ball b/c that may be his only game trophy.
KRK (26-Oct) : T/F after the game, 12 was talking to Ken Stills for 5 minutes. Trade for Stills?

Mucky Tundra (25-Oct) : Holy crap what a crazy ending to a World Series game!
Zero2Cool (25-Oct) : We'll see about Jones. Packers are leaning on holding him, but it's game time decision.
