The Brett Favre/Peyton Manning rivalry could never be the kind of headliner that Manning versus Brady is, but way back in '04...Favre and Manning put on a clinic. With the impending retirement announcement by Peyton Manning coming in a couple hours, I thought I would flash back to an offensive showing that saw two of history's best head to head. The Packers didn't win out but the game itself was (offensively anyway) a thing of beauty. Brett Favre's sun was beginning to set and Manning was considered the up-and-comer in this scenario as the two fine teams took the field. …

The injury to Davante Adams has sparked a lot of discussion about whether some of the young wide receivers on the Packers' roster should get some playing time. Adams was the talk of training camp and with the injury to Jordy Nelson would have seemed to be a shoe-in for a great sophomore season. Instead, a sophomore slump seems more descriptive. Even in his 4 reception game against the Bears, Adams was targeted 8 times and one has to wonder if Aaron Rodgers noticed the 50% completion percentage. Then in the Seahawks game, Adams got hurt and went 5 for…

The Packers' defense held Marshawn Lynch to 41 yards last Sunday night. And the challenge will continue as Jamaal Charles comes to Lambeau for another primetime meeting Monday night. Charles had 125 yards on 21 carries for a 6.0 yard per carry average in the recent loss to the Denver Broncos, but Charles also had two critical fumbles in that game and the team eventually lost. The Packers' defense is going to have a bead on Charles in this contest, knowing that even moreso than the Seahawks, the Chiefs' offense requires a more than serviceable running game to be successful...in fact,…

Here is the tweet from a couple hours ago: With X-rays on his sprained ankle coming back negative, Packers' RB Eddie Lacy now hoping to play next Monday night vs Chiefs. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 21, 2015 So should the Packers play Lacy or Starks? A lot of the decision still depends on what the doctors think and I would guess a LOT of Packernation's thoughts depend on how much of a test you think the KC Chiefs' defense is going to be. If you had to make the call what would it be?
