I'm glad this game is in GB, my guess is that will be the difference. Also, it depends on who is healthy. It will be tough if we have to play without the same players, plus what is the status of Worthy and Neal? It would be nice if we could rest all the wounded with the bye week coming. But this is a critical game, as is each one through Chicago. A 3 game lead would be difficult, at best, to overcome.

Finley had his chance to be "the Man" in this game . . . yet he disappointed . . . again.

ike Mccarthy Sticking With Alex Green

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is sticking by Alex Green as the team’s starting running back.

Green rushed for just 54 yards on 22 carries during the Packers’ 24-15 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Despite getting 20-plus carries in each of his three starts, Green has yet to rush for more than 65 yards in a game. Green is averaging just 2.4 yards per carry in his three starts.

Yet McCarthy is keeping Green in the starting role over James Starks or Randall Cobb according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. McCarthy says Green is most deserving back on their roster.

“[Starks] will probably be given more opportunities as we go through the week, but there are a number of different factors that are involved with that and the biggest one is Alex Green has earned these opportunities,” McCarthy said.



Green took over the starting role when Cedric Benson was placed on injured reserve due to a foot sprain following the Packers Week Five loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Benson received the “designated to return” tag and is eligible to return for Green Bay’s Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions.

Until then it appears as though Green will continue to have opportunities to make an impact in the Packers’ backfield.


GIVE ME STARKS OR GIVE ME DEATH

thats a little extreme but I couldn't think of a less extreme word that went with the flow.

even if it's "just" the Cardinals, we BARELY beat JAX, take no team lightly.

our D and O are still waay to inconsistant for me ever to feel comfortable before the clock hits 0:00.

Hey now, it's okay if Zero speaks doom and gloom because the Packers always win when he does, but cut it out!

34 - 16 Packers. Rodgers comes back with fire again, 3TDs (2 passing 1 rushing), 1 INT, 310 yards with a couple 40+ yard plays to Jones and Cobb. Defense causes two turnovers and Hayward gets a TD off a pick.

Cardinals have a pretty solid defense. I think they are top five after half the season. That's no joke man, that is impressive. This will not be an easy game. I. Am. Worried. <-- only worried if no Jordy Nelson.

The Cardinals defense is pretty good, but their offense is ATROCIOUS. As long as the offense doesn't allow the Cardinals defense to score touch downs, there's absolutely no reason the Packers shouldn't control this game. Play smart, take whatever points are possible (field goals will be great in this game), and let the defense dominate their offense. Their offensive line looks much worse than the Packers and they have a much lesser QB. The Packers had better get at least three sacks and a pick in this game.

If we can control their running game with just the box players.. I think you bracket Fritz and go after them aggressively on defense.

While I think their defense is pretty good.. I think it hasn't been tested thoroughly yet. Patriots put 300 bills on them and the Dolphins put over 400 on them. Other than that, they have played Seahawks, Eagles, Bills, Rams, Vikings and Niners. None of those passing attacks are dominate, so I think we can push them there. Rushing defense.. they have held opponents under 100 only twice this season. Not discounting them.. but we should be able to stretch this defense that has a strong pair in the defensive backfield in Peterson and Wilson.

I like the young talent on this defense.. but Rodgers and company (even banged up) should be able to score 20 +.

I just don't think the Cards offense behind that line will mimic that 20+.. so the Packers should be able to go into the bye 6-3.

The Packers need a week off.. to get healthy if nothing more. Just get a win and get to that bye.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

That defense got shreaded by Alex Smith..

We can win against any defense. It's not like they're invinsible cause they're top 5... lol the Mighty Texans got dominated by us and they were what 3rd or something.. the only Defense i'm scared of is the Bears, cause they always play well against us.

We can win against any defense when healthy - NOBODY got open last week. WRs and TEs will need to step it up, run blocking needs to really improve or this is going to be a defensive battle at best.

Give credit to Jacksonville.. Can't blame us for everything, they played us great, we just weren't insync or energetic. They outplayed us, and we still won.. mindfuck right?

lol I know people have high expectations for the Pack and their offense, but no ones perfect.. Even the great Tom Bradys, the Peyton Mannings, the Eli Mannings, and the Drew Brees of the world has their shit days.

All I know is we're 5-3 and that's all that matters.

Very true... but let me give you some other very true stats.

~Patriots only score 18 points on them and lost the game.
~Dolphins only scored 21 points on them and lost the game.

~The highest scores put on the Cards have been 24 by the 49ers, 21 by the Vikings and Dolphins.

~The Cards started off 4-0, but in the last four are 0-4.
~The Cards have lost to the Rams, Bills, Vikings and 49ers.

~The Cards are 4-0 against teams that have passed the ball more than run it against them.
~I don't remember the last time the Packers ran the ball more than passed it.



Now for some opinions.

~ I think the Cards defense is set up around the passing game and putting pressure on it in some way.

~ I think the Packers will change the stat above to say, the Cards are against 4-1 teams that pass more than they run it.

~ I think the Cards will become 0-5 in their last five games

~ I think STs for both sides will come into play, ether make a great play, and/or a horrible mistake, and/or try a trick play.
