Just wanted to say this a fantastic thread idea. Now we just need a comparison of the injury list.

work in progress:

I didn't include training camp nobodies on the IR.
2010 after 6 games:
On Aug 31, S Atari Bigby, CB Al Harris and RB James Starks were all placed on the reserve/physically unable to perform list. RB Quinn Porter was placed on injured reserve.
On Sep 4, T/G Allen Barbre and S Will Blackmon were placed on injured reserve.
RB Ryan Grant and DE Justin Harrell were also placed on injured reserve.[17]
October 7th S Morgan Burnett was place on injured reserve due to a knee injury.[18]
october 13th S Derrick Martin was placed on injured reserve
october 15th LB Nick Barnett on injured reserve with a wrist injury.[19]
october 18th TE Jermichael Finley was also placed on injured reserve with a knee injury.

9 players on IR - 3 on PUP
Good Lord we lost a ton more players after this too! I hope we don't continue to lose players this season like we did then....wow.

2013 after 6 games:
Brian Bulaga on IR.
DuJuan Harries on IR.
Sean Richardson PUP.
Derek Sherrod PUP.
Jerel Worthy PUP.
Robert Francois on IR.
Greg Van Roten on IR.
Randall Cobb on IRDR

plus the injury report for week 6:
Bush, Jarrett CB Hamstring FP FP LP questionable
Hayward, Casey CB Hamstring LP LP LP questionable
Jones, James WR Knee DNP DNP DNP questionable
Jones, Brad LB Hamstring DNP DNP DNP Out
Matthews, Clay LB Thumb Out Out Out Out

What I like about the Packers is that all 53 are good players, but we only have a couple great players. The good players all push each other for playing time, but they never seem to get jealous of the great players. I think that is why we can sustain all the injuries and still maintain a high level of play.

Getting our guys back and healthy is the key winning the division shouldn't be a problem winning playoff games maybe a concern

Anyone else get the feeling that this team has each others backs more than previous years?

I see a lot of similarities between this team and 2010. 2011 they got conceded and 2012 they got soft. The attitude is back, and by playoff we will be a tough out.

There's definitely an edge to the team this year. They haven't been as slick but there's something about them that makes them seem meaner.

It's kind of interesting.

We got guys who are out for now, which will prevent them from getting hurt worse in the meantime.

These guys will all be back for the playoffs. Sucks now, but it's kind of good knowing that they're going to be there.

The league is different this season. There is parity, and there is a degree of weakness - more teams floundering than any year I can remember.

In 2010, the Packers were basically running a gauntlet - what was it, 5 or 6 regular season games, all "must win", just to get into the playoffs.

This season, there is legitimate hope we can run the table and go 14-2 even with all the injuries, youth, etc. And even if we don't it shouldn't take a super record to win the division. Furthermore, there is a strong chance of getting a bye in the playoffs - New Orleans has the tough part of its schedule still coming up, and the Cowboys or whoever wins the east probably won't have too great a record. It's not even out of the question to have the NFC top seed if the Niners beat the Seahawks the second time they play.

So in terms of our own team, yeah, 2010 and 2013 are similar, but in terms of the league situation in general, not so much.

I'd rather be compared to the 1966 team.

What I see is the two areas where there were lots of concerns expressed on this board at the beginning of the season coming thru for this team now when it's needed the most.

The O and D lines.

When Bulaga went down it was very concerning to see a rookie step in his place and a RT that had been pretty IFFY at the least. While they haven't been stellar they have been pretty darn steady.

Lot's of angst also with the Dline. Would Jolly be anything like he was? Daniels was too small. Pickett too old. Raji not worth the pick, etc. Ironically, the light at the end of the tunnel was Jones coming in and he's the one guy that really hasn't performed all that great thus far.

The Packers run offense and run defense has been the catalyst of the success for the team and thankfully this stems, in part, because these two groups of big guys has not been hit with the injuries other groups have seen.

Hopefully this continues because I could see where this team could really start to struggle if they had to start juggling the big guys around ON TOP of needing all these LB'rs and WR'rs to step up. They have all banded together and are pulling the train but there IS a tipping point there somewhere.

it's reassuring to know that over the next few weeks there should be an influx of players returning. I mean they aren't even half way through the season yet and the sidelines look like an Amtrac derailment reunion over there.

This LT we got really stepped up. The fact that we haven't really skipped a bit on the line from last year is a real testament to his talent and upside.

Or perhaps the 1962 team?

The D line has been a major improvement.

I'm not yet sold on the OL, though. The left side is starting to look pretty dominant in the run game, yes, but the right side is still average at best. And if it doesn't improve, teams are going to get increasingly better at scheming to stop Lacy running over Sitton.

And the pass game? That has improved, but I need a few more games to be confident just yet, too.

They are averaging 4.2 yards/carry off the RG
