This is a first. *I* am the one bringing a thread back on track...

Re: Giants game a must win. I hope not, because I have a bad feeling about this one.

Much as I get annoyed by this generation of Mannings, this is the kind of game where Eli Manning excels. Plus the Giants are coming off a bye, and IIRC they, unlike the Packers, tend to come off their byes ready to take no prisoners.

And our OL is...well, our OL.

My guess is that, after last weeks mediocre performance, McCarthy and Rodgers will have the team in "1, 2, 3...DOMINATE!" mode. But still, I worry.

Fortunately, this is NOT a must-win game, not with the likes of Minnesota (Ponder? hahahha), Chicago (still suck!), and Detroit (hahhaha) in four of the remaining five games?

Even with a loss to the Gints, the Pack will go at worst 4-2 the rest of the season. And that'll be good enough for at worst the 4th seed. The Gints would likely get the three seed. Though they've got games against Washington, Atlanta, and Baltimore, all of which could be losses, that would s till put them in position to win head-to-head tiebreaker with GB.

The Packers need to win if they want to get a playoff bye. But personally, I like their chances better if they don't get that playoff week off.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too. As far as you'd like the Giants @ Packers game... it seems like the road team has been winning that game most of the time lately. Packers go to NY (or NJ I should say), and they win. NY comes to GB and they win.


Hey beast,

I guess the bigger point I was trying to illustrate, is that I would like for our Packers to force the issue with a win at NYG, and retake our once proud home field advantage. We should not lose games at Lambeau in the winter. Period.

Green Bay needs to consciously take that back. Some way. Somehow. I think winning out, or close to it this season will help us get there.

Hey, get a painting crew in the visiting locker room pronto, and paint that sucker pink. Why not? Hey, it would be a start IMO. The Packers organization should be looking at every little thing that they themselves can change in order to make this an unenjoyable place for the opposition to play.

My feeling is that they have gone a bit overboard in making Lambeau too friendly. Our opponents should fear coming here.

Since Coughlin took over the Giants in 2004 they are 5-3 after a bye week, 5-4 inclusive of one playoff loss coming off a bye. Since 2006 McCarthy and the Pack are 6-1 after a bye, 7-2 including the playoffs.

I agree that this is not a must win game unless we want a bye week. Atlanta has had a bit of a farce as far as their schedule goes and they still have games against Carolina and Detroit. Assuming they win those two, all they have to do is split the 4 games against the Bucs (2x), Saints and Giants to get to 13-3. San Fran should be able to finish with 11 or 12 wins. That means we'd have to go at least 5-1 to have a shot at the 2 seed.

Oh, under your scenario where the Giants lose to Washington, Atlanta and Baltimore they finish 9-7. We'd only need 3 more wins to finish in the 3rd seed, and that's where I think we'll be, hosting either Chicago or Seattle before a trip to San Fran.

Shouldn't but did... twice to the Giants in the playoffs. I don't want to see them or the 49ers in the playoffs. 49ers are probably gonna make it... and as it looks now will be 2nd and 3rd seeds... and there for meeting if the 3rd seed beats the 6th seed.

But the Giants have a tough schedule left with the Packers, Falcons, Ravens the hot Saints and a game against the Redskins. It's possible they could still lose their division and might miss the playoffs... (or might get the 6th seed and have to face the 49er if they get the 3rd seed. )

Yeah, I just want them to turn that around. The only way to do that is meet your nemesis head on, and take him down! On our turf! I'd like for the Packers to put that shit to bed and bring back our home field advantage. I don't care who we face.
thanks Post received 1 applause.

This is actually one of the few games that I am not stressing. A loss here does not hurt us too bad in my eyes. I also am thinking about last year where the playoff bye week may have actually hurt us. Also, the last five years have shown that home field has become more of a disadvantage for this team in the playoffs and that is sad.

While I understand what they are saying, I don't know that I agree with the premise.

Instead, I think this is an important measuring stick game right now, one in which it will really lay out the Packers must do the remainder of the season to make the run they want to. In fact, I think if they blow out the Giants it will actually be counter productive to the Packers end goal.

We need to be a hungry and aggressive team, I think as long as this game is close and well played, win or lose it will fit the Packers needs moving forward. I actually think a blowout loss would be better than a blowout win in terms of the Packers mindset.


Well, the measuring stick has shown that we need to become a more physical team overall.. I think this is a wake up call for this team and coaching staff. We are what we are in terms of an offensive line, so now we have to gameplan to protect it as much as we can when we face fast defensive fronts.

I stand that this game being what it is, a blowout loss, will be more of a benefit than a blow out win. I don't like having to watch this type of ass kicking.. but I think this wakes up the team that we have to step up the physical effort.

The Giants going for it twice on fourth down should just fuel it.. if it doesn't, well then, this team will be sitting home in Feb.

No it wasn't a must win. I would have been a nice win though.

Just take care of business with MN and Chicago. We easily still control our destiny.

The only consolation to this Sunday was SEA losing to MIA. With 5 weeks left in the regular season, it is looking more a reality that we will have to make the playoffs and win as a road team. We will have to catch the lightning in a bottle, again. Maybe we can do it, but we have work to do in order to get there, after being completely outclassed this season by both SF and NYG.

We were completely outclassed. 5 weeks to get our mojo back, with a ton of work to do.

Must win? I see where people are coming from saying this wasn't. Had we won, there may well have been a false sense of security attached to it. By losing, we've chosen a more difficult path. Right this ship. Get some important players back from injury. Ride some wildcard momentum. We have done it before.

We may have to add some players on DL and OL.

Can this Packers team win in SF? Can this Packers team win at NYG? I think we look a man or two short on both lines. If we can't protect Rodgers, and we can't pressure the opposing QB, I just don't see it.
