AM Quickslant: Highlights Anyone?

Jordy Nelson put up 209 yards in the Packers comeback win against the Jets Sunday. The Packers, Aaron Rodgers TD Percentagewith the win, squared themselves up with the rest of the division at 1-1. If the second half of Sunday’s game is an indicator of a growing Packers identity, good things are coming our way, Packernation.

The change may be just in time as the Packers hit a critical three-game stretch against division opponents. The only game to be played at Lambeau is the last, versus the Vikings. Facing the Lions and the Bears on their home turf is a daunting task for any team. Will the Packers be up for it? Continue reading

1 Hero in 3 Plays

There is one player who made the difference in the game against the Jets yesterday. I have a hunch supermanthat no one else in the Packers blogosphere knows who it is. If they do…they are not going to talk about it. But I am here to tell the truth.

Packers Storm Back!

Well the Packers spotted the Jets too many points in this game. But with a little over five minutes leftreal12thman in the first half…the turnaround began! Hey this team made mistakes, got itself in a hole, and at times frustrated Packers fans…but THIS IS A WIN!

The LAST thing the Packers could afford was to go into the NFC North streak (in which they play all rivals in the next three weeks) 0-2. The Packers got behind early and looked dazed, confused, and lackluster but it all changed toward the end of the second quarter. Continue reading
