Okay...I know that the news media has to sell air time and make money and all but...really??? The day after the Packers mount a comeback after being down 26-3 at the half...the greatest comeback in team history: 1. Without Aaron Rodgers 2. Without Randall Cobb 3. Without Jermichael Finley 4.

Well the Dallas game is getting closer. Here are a few Packer players I will be paying particular attention to come Sunday: Eddie Lacy: It looks like Eddie will play as coach McCarthy has said he feels good about where he is at with the ankle injury. I want to see if he has the same burst and can put his foot down and cut. He did it last week going back into the game and I give him tons of credit for that. The Packers are going…

So here it is...every game from here on out is "for all the marbles". A little over a month ago I posted a series of articles on the new-found success of the offensive attack of the Green Bay Packers particularly the running game.  In that series of articles I highlighted how important the continuity offensive line has been to the success of Green Bay’s ground game..
