The Cowboys have the unenviable task of travelling to Lambeau Field to take on a fresh and potent Green Bay Team. The Dallas Cowboys bring as good an offense as one could hope for to Lambeau Field for what might end up being “Ice Bowl 2″, with a great offensive line and stellar running game. Here are three things of interest to Packers fans as we look for a chance to get another shot at Seattle (or Carolina at home). Continue reading
In the wildcard round of the playoffs, Tony Romo and Cowboys were able to squeak by Detroit at home, stamping their ticket to Green Bay next Sunday. Meanwhile, the Panthers secured a victory over Arizona and travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. With the three-seed Cowboys coming to town, the Packers get the toughest test of the four playoff teams with first-round byes.
Even with temperatures in the teens, the Dallas offense will still present one of the greatest challenges that Dom Capers’ defense has faced this season. While the Packer defense has prevailed against pass-first offenses like those of New England and Detroit, they have struggled against elite backfields. Expect Dallas to feed running backs Demarco Murray and Joseph Randle regularly in an effort to wear down the Green Bay front seven.

While it may seem like a long-shot to think the Lions will beat the Cowboys in Arlington, it is a possibility. And if it does happen, tonights wildcard win by the Carolina Panthers over the Arizona Cardinals sends the Panthers to Lambeau for the Divisional Round. Here are three things on the good side and the bad side that the Panthers bring to the table: Will it be enough to challenge the “house-protecting” Pack in a week? Well that remains to be seen but I think most of Packernation will like our chances if it works out that way. Continue reading
With the Packers getting the first round bye it gives Aaron’s calf a little extra time to heal but I for one don’t believe he will be 100% by next week, So lets hope McCarthy installs a game plan to let him stay in the pistol or shotgun for the better part of the game. I liked the way Lacy/Starks ran the ball out of the pistol against the Lions last week they still hit the holes at full speed without Aaron having to step back to hand them the ball. It also worked well with the short crossing routes, As long as Aaron can execute these types of passes without having to be to mobile he could just get past this first playoff game without further injuring his calf Continue reading
