After watching Dallas - Philly I think it will be a very fun and difficult game next week in Green Bay.

My silly conclusions after the Dallas game are:

Romo and TO are smart enough to beat a zone defense, I think we have to defend man to man and accept to lose some balls if TO makes a play.

Collins and Bigby if he plays are crucial, they have to be smart and fast to help in coverage to avoid a long TD catch and run.

We should be fine against the run

Romo does make some mistakes under pressure, I wonder if Kampman can get there and if KGB will have a big game, we need him.

They have all sorts of coverage problems in the middle of the field their linebackers are not good in coverage, Lee will play a big role in this game and maybe Humphrey will catch some passes too.

Is Ruvell Martin ready? A 5 WR set can be a good thing in this game.

Crosby needs to kick deeeep and we have to get to Felix Jones quickly

I think they remember Bush skills, lets not put him on the field please!

we'll need the offense to score lots of points. i don't think we'll be able to keep Dallas out of the endzone.

Good post Luis.
It's not gonna be easy against the Cows. TO is gonna makes plays.....thats a given. What we have to do is not let him and Romo control the game. Like you said, we need to rattle Romo. If he gets comfortable in the pocket, its gonna be a LONG day for Packer fans.
And out offense has to be hitting on all cylinders too. I HOPE Grant is 100% healthy for this game. We need to keep their D honest by letting them know we CAN run against them. That will help to keep pressure off AR.
Our WR's SHOULD be able to dissect the Cow's D. I think it's gonna be alot like last night's game. One score after another. But we have them HERE, so that should help.
I hope we beat those smug jerks.

I think the keys to the game are simple.

1. Pressure Tony Romo

2. Protect Aaron Rodgers

3. Limit the unnecessary penalties such as offsides and illegal man down field.

4. Stay discipline

Philly's receivers did damage against Dallas' secondary and if they can then the Pack's receivers can as well. However, GB will need to keep Rodgers up right.

When Romo is under pressure he makes mistakes. You saw him get blitz late in that game and just throw a horrible ball to Marion Barber. Barber probably would have scored and iced game but instead the ball was way out of bounds.

When he threw his INT he was also pressured and just threw one he shouldn't have thrown. Very Brett Favre like actually.

I think GB needs to stay discipline. What I mean is don't bite for the play action pass which they use to go down field and don't fall for the reverse. I think you'll see some Felix Jones reverses so they need to hold strong and contain.

That's my opinion.

Well for instance everyone ... the packers defense is more better then the philly defense ... don't know why everyone's panicking that much so are our receiving corps

Good point, if we can run against them we can keep the offense off the field, that is really a good idea, and we'll make their defense tired for a 4th quarter that can be meaningful in a close game.

It seems Scott Wells might be back, not sure about Sitton

The Packers CANNOT afford to take stupid penalties, especially on the o-line. Dallas has had a lot of problems with penalties early this season, so if the Packers clean up their play this is potentially a big advantage for us.

Sanders should blitz often. Like really often.

If our ST come out and play like they've never played before (ie at an extremely high level) it'd greatly help us. Having short field positions, heck even getting points from ST would ease so much of the pressure off of Rodgers.

I don't think the Packers D can stop the Cowboys, or even contain them. The Packers D has to limit the damage as much as possible, keeping the Cowboys around, but under, 30 would be the best case scenario IMO.

This one is going to come down to a turn over battle with the winner being decided by who has the ball last.

I see a close game with the Packers winning it at the end, 31-28

I just want to know if this board is going to go absolutely schizo-bloodthirsty-crazy if we lose this game like the old board did last year when we lost to Dallas. I know I ended up leaving for a while, cause no one could say anything without getting railed. Hopefully people will be a little more level headed this time if, and I mean IF, we lose.

i'm not gonna freak out. call me pessimistic but i think we're gonna lose this one. call it preparing myself for the worst & hoping for the best or call me a "non-fan" but that's really how i feel. plus it's only ONE game against a team that we have a history of NOT beating recently.

In my record prediction I have us losing this one. I think we can win, but this will be the biggest challenge we have this season, in my opinion. Yeah, we have to play Indy, but we won't have to play them again unless we both get to the Super Bowl. We may very well end up having to play Dallas again if we make the playoffs.

DONT give up the BIG play and force their run game to beat us. Pressure Romo ALL game long. I say to stop the monster, we gotta cut off its head. Romo is the head.

On Offense we gotta keep Ware contained. No more than 1 sack. That guy is nearly impossible to stop but we have to limit his pressure. I think we can beat their defense, no doubt about it.

But if we get in a shootout, We lose. simple as that. The Boys' have proven themselves to be very successful when that happens.

That's not entirely accurate. At Dallas we have a history of losing, when we have them at home, we have a history of winning. In fact I think we are undefeated when we have Dallas in OUR house.

We have them in our house now baby!

This is a coin flip game for me. I am of course pulling the Packers. I just don't know though.

One thing I do want to say about this game. If we win, it doesn't mean we are king shit of the NFL and that Aaron Rodgers is GOD. Likewise if we lose it does not mean we are dog shit and that Aaron Rodgers is DOG.

As the lovely 4pack says, its just ONE game and I hope win or lose we all take it in stride.

It will be very hard not to be freaking crazy happy if we win this game. I will try to mantain my calm but man 3-0 and 2-0 in the Division 3-0 in the NFC and advantage over Dallas in the playoffs is a great way to start a season!!

Very true...but an NFL season is just too long to lose sight of our goals with big wins.

The anticipation for this game is killing me, and it's only Wednesday.

I have a feeling that Dallas is going to win this one. Just a hunch, nothing really concrete.

However, if Green Bay manages to win, I might have to take a sick day on Monday

If we win I will say to my boss "I am not myself, do you want somebody else to go to work?"

The bad thing about Sunday night games is if Green Bay loses, it's that much harder to fall asleep.

Last year, I was too pissed off and amped up when Green Bay dropped that Sunday nighter against Chicago. Made for a long night and an even longer Monday.

I, unlike most Packer faithful, feel pretty dang good about this game. Maybe it's cause Dallas is a good team, and I don't mind a loss in September as much as I would, in say, January.

Watching Monday Night's game just confirmed to me that the key to beating the Dallas O is pressure. We saw some exotic blitzes from our D in the preseason, and I hope our DC employs them in this game. TO is a beast, but I'm calling it today: he's getting in the endzone once and only once this game, if that. And he's not getting a hundred yards, either. Al has been on lockdown this season so far. He'll keep it up this week.

I think, though, that there are two keys to us getting a home win.

1. Stop Barber. He's a beast, and for as much as everyone here is worried about TO/Romo, I think we'll stop those two, whereas Barber is a serious threat to our thin D-line.

2. Air it out. Aaron Rodgers has a realistic shot at topping 400 yds this game. Count on that.

Basically, if I'm drawing up the gameplan it would be this: Blitz all day, nearly every down, with our CBs jamming the los hard. They'll get their points, but we'll get our hits on Tony, too.

Second, go Blitzkreig on that ridiculously overrated, dinged-up secondary. Have Aaron throw it 40+ times out of shotgun & singleback sets.


That's just my take on this game, for what it's worth..
