AM Quickslant: The Key to the North

  3 years ago     80 Views     1 Comment  

Well the Packers second preseason game against the Rams is almost here and Packernation looks forward to watching their team play a dry game this time. The Rams will be a serious test for the Pack when starters meet starters. This is a team that has not made the playoffs since 2004, right about the time the balance of power shifted to the Seahawks. Now with the 49'ers also recently winning in the playoffs, the Rams have all but drifted into the Mississippi and floated away into the gulf of Mexico to NFL fans. But this is a good team with…

And the Final Plus

Well, tomorrow it will be time to focus on the game against the Rams Saturday but for right now, there is one more thing I want to mention about last Saturday's game against the Titans. Remember last season when our defensive backfield couldn't stop anybody? I don't know about you but I have a feeling, after watching the Titans game, that this season will be different in that regard. I loved how Ha Ha played in the Titans game...sure, he missed a tackle but he also was disruptive back there, broke up a pass and hammered the ball out of a…

But a LOT of the anticipation for this year's team has been about how the defense will improve after a lackluster showing last year. Well, here is a little point/counterpoint with myself (well, I don't have anyone but myself to argue with at 8:00 in the morning!)…

Well, even though it is not the regular season, the offseason ends today. Packernation will be once again able to see their team collide with an opponent for the first time since the end of last season. In a year in which even Family Night did not have a scrimmage, Packers fans should be pretty pumped. Well we all know that the starters will be taking very few reps until the third preseason game and we also know that the Packers are not going to be pulling out all the stops in the preseason anyway. The defenses will be pretty…

Tomorrow night will be a big night for Packers fans! Preseason games are in full swing and coaches and players alike are finally getting some much needed live action against live opponents. Of course we all know that wins and losses are beside the point but seeing how the first teams look and what young players jump out to possibly overtake a starter is still exciting. It starts to come together when the Packers meet the Titans in Tennessee. There is going to be plenty to watch tomorrow night and a LOT of questions that are about to be answered.…
