Yup. He's Brett Favre without the talent to be Brett Favre.

Next two weeks are huge because the schedule softens. This game could get Green Bay rolling or it could derail the season, as a Detroit victory sends them to 4-1 and drops Green Bay to 1-3.

Defensively, stop Reggie Bush. Let Calvin Johnson get his 145 yards and a touchdown. It's Bush that makes this Lions team complete. He's the player that extends drives and hits you for a big play. In previous seasons, it was all about Matthew Stafford finding Johnson. That didn't work too often against the Packers or many other teams. Make those two players beat you instead of the other 51.

Offensively, I think the short-passing game will help early. Losing Jermichael Finley was big against Cincinnati. It took away the center of the field and it hurt the short-passing game. When Rodgers knows pressure is coming, he checks to Finley often. In previous seasons, Finley wouldn't do much or drop the ball, but he's playing great this year. He's faster, stronger, and catching the ball. These plays seem trivial, but they're extending drives or setting Green Bay up with manageable third downs.

I'm also curious as to how Green Bay uses Johnathan Franklin and Eddie Lacy. I'm excited about the prospect of having two young running backs impact this offense.

It should be fun. I’m expecting a ton of points. Just throwing this out there, but the Packers are 21-1 in their last 22 regular-season home games, and the Lions haven’t won in Wisconsin since 1991.

I am trying to figure out where all this hoopla is coming from for the Lions as their 3-1 record is against pretty abysmal teams. They have barely beat the Vikings and the Redksins, beat an over-hyped Bears team and lost tot he Cardinals (who are just as bad as the Vikings). They are 3-1 though and that's really all that matters.

Maybe I am giving the Packers too much credit but I think they handle the Lions pretty easily this game. Aside from their defensive line, the Lions are outmatched in every other aspect of the game. Reggie Bush will determine if the offense succeeds or not but I think the Packers defense will zone in on him.

Rodgers is coming off of having to sit on a loss (that should have been a win) for two weeks. We all know how Rodgers is and I think he comes out on fire. Add to that, we get Eddie Lacy and Jermichael Finley back in the mix which will allow Rodgers those short passes if the Lions defensive line is breaking through easily. As long as the Packers offensive line can do an average job against the Lions defensive line, the Packers should come out on top Sunday afternoon.

Expect a high scoring game...

We're at home AND just off a bye. Two enormous advantages.

I classify it as a must win game btw. We really shit ourselves against the BeenGirls and now we're behind the 8ball at 1-2.

Coming off the bye, people are getting healthy, at home, Rodgers will be razor sharp, running game looking good. I think this will be the game is Datone Jones coming out party. Defense will force some turnovers early and the team will roll to victory. Stat Padford will add some garbage points late.

45-21

A great test for our much improved run defense. Huge test for Burnett coming back. Have to handle both the deep ball to Calvin and crashing the box to stop Bush. Will be a great indicator of where he is health-wise. Can we have three straight 100 yard rushers, and potentially from three different backs?

I look for Rodgers and Mike McCarthy being focused and drinking shots of tiger blood between scoring drives to keep the pedal to the metal.

McMillian can stuff the run. Burnett can cover.

Jesus, his career's over.

We now have only Brad Jones on the inside, who can cover.

That is such a shame. He was really coming on. We cannot really underestimate this guy's importance down the stretch. Next man up I suppose but this is a big blow in my opinion.

Thought the Packer's o-line has improved. Usually Suh and Fairly kind of bitch our guards and center around, but they were pretty solid today. Has the Bacteria/Barclay bookends improved our toughness? Bacteria is kind of nasty, and he likes to finish off his blocks.

Happy for the win, but hard to get excited as we beat them without Megatron. Still feel a bit happy with the defence and their effort today. A few oustanding catches by Jordy and JJ today. Lacy gets a game ball for pounding their big guys and wearing them out.

Once again, our offense couldn't complete
a drive. 5 field goals got it done today, but
if the lions would have had Megadork
on the field, the field goals might not
have been enough.
Our D did well against Bush, and kept
Stafford running for his life.

Our O needs to get it together for the rest
of the year, and start getting some TDs.

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the win!
O just think they have been leaving too many
points on the field.
The great thing, is "Bing" looks like he put
the bad year behind him and is kicking as
good as anyone in football.
