Rant Here Packernation…

Eddie Lacy vs AtlantaWell I am opening up a “safe” space for Packernation to rant about today’s game. This was a comedy of errors from start to finish…oh, and by the way…the defense did enough to get the job done.

What can you say about the dropped balls…missed opportunities…and failure to cash in on a hurt Eddie Lacy’s exceptional game. Wuh??? Well, you can say a LOT in the comments section below. We want to hear Continue reading

Here’s What I’m Lookin’ For

Aaron RodgersAaron Rodgers does not play the same way against pressure as he did when the Packers first met the Lions early in the season. Rodgers gets rid of the ball to his checkdown quickly while still extending plays with his feet when necessary. This Green Bay Packers team is outscoring everybody in the first quarter of games and needs to keep this trend up to be successful against the Bills today.

There is still some question as to whether this Packer offense can be successful against top ten defenses and today will be a GREAT day to prove it! Continue reading

Early in the year, the Packers were weak against the run, but moving Clay Matthews to the inside linebacker position seemed to be, if not a remedy, at least an improvement. But in the Atlanta game, we saw the Packers defense taken apart in the passing game…not by a bevy of receivers but pretty much by Julio Jones alone (to the tune of 250+ yards). The Packers defense is 20th against the pass and 25th against the run and that fact has the Buffalo Bills thinking this defense can be a remedy for their lack of scoringContinue reading

3 Things the Packers Must Do to Beat the Bills

Aaron Rodgers StatsArizona squeaked a win with their third string quarterback so the Packers need a win just to keep pace. Travelling to Buffalo, the Packers have a chance to prove that they can get it done against a top ten defense on the road. While I think the Packers would win going away even if they had to play in Arizona for a Super Bowl bid, the very best scenario for the Packers here is (obviously) to win out and see the Cardinals drop a game.

Here are three things they need to do to get the job done on Sunday. Continue reading
