Well the injury report is in and some questions remain. But the main question for this week is whether 20130911-103350.jpgthe Packers defense will improve. After giving up the second most yards on the ground last week against Seattle, the Packers defense will face a Jets ground game that put up the most yards on the ground last week.

Poll Results: Should he stay or should he go?


Wednesday, GPN put out a poll to see what Packernation thought about Dom Capers. Well the results are in and Packernation has a decided opinion on this one.  

Most Dangerous Substance on Earth - Packer Offense

While 20% of those polled disagreed that Dom Capers was the problem, 35% wanted him gone. But that said, 45% of those polled thought that Dom should stay for the season and get this full year to turn things around. We may have to put this poll out again at the end of the year.

Injury notables:

Packers: Demitri Goodson was a full participant in practice but Bryan Bulaga and Brandon Bostick were limited. Mike McCarthy said that Bulaga is chomping at the bit to play and it sounds like Bostick will be ready as well. The big news was that Eddie Lacy still did not participate but the indication is that he is moving along in the protocol. Brad Jones didn’t participate either with the same quad injury. If he can’t go, we may get a chance to see what Lattimore can do.

Jets: The big one to watch here is cornerback Dee Milner, who was a limited participant in practice this week. If he can’t go, look for Rodgers to light up the Jets secondary. If he goes, but is not 100%…look for Rodgers to light up the Jets secondary. If he is 100% he will be a big part of the Jets’ hopes to handle Aaron Rodgers.

While I don’t ever want to see a player get hurt, I am excited about the possibility of seeing Jamari Lattimore get out on the field again. I expect the Packers to get back to form in this game with rhythm on the offense and a good showing against the run. But it’s show me don’t tell me time. If the Packers can force the Jets to rely on Geno Smith’s arm, the scales will quickly tip in our favor. But if we can’t stop the ground game, it will be a long day at Lambeau Field.

      Ed why are you on a Packer site trolling? Do you deep down want to admit you love the Packers because your Lions are losers?

      Its okay to come out and admit it bud we all know the Packers are the kings of the NFC North 🙂

    What nobody is talking about is Detroits offence. They played like crap these past few weeks. They barely got by the Vikings at home a few weeks ago and against the Bears with their horrible defense, they were only able to put up 14 points until almost the end of the game!!
    I think our defense is licking it’s chops!!!!!

    who cares if it is by 1 pt or 20 pts. Just win baby. GO PACK GO!!!!!!!

  4.   December 26, 2014, 8:09 pm

    All the years Brett Farve for Green Bay he never lost at home to the lions ,I hope Aaron Rogers keeps the streak alive ! I don’t care even if they win by one point !

    I don’t know what experts are picking the Lions, but from every site have been reading, they have Picked the Packers. All 9 of the “experts” on CBS Sports are picking the Packers, and all 13 of the “experts” on ESPN are picking the Packers. Thanks for another misleading story Jeff!

    •   December 26, 2014, 11:52 pm

      Another? If you read the comment I left I did say I should have said they are saying not picking that was my fault but at any rate I never try to mislead anyone I just give my opinion you can either agree with it or not!

  6.   December 26, 2014, 7:48 pm

    Greenbay Packers win 38 to 14… 21 points will be earned in the first quarter.

    My husband Larry has been a Packer fan since the 50s & is now a stockholder too. Lam beau seems to bring out the best in our team so we feel they have the advantage. We will go with you Jeff and predict a 28-17 win. Go Pack go!

    •   December 26, 2014, 6:42 pm

      Me too My Dad and I have been packer fans since the days of Vince Lombardi and I agree with 28 to 14

  8.   December 26, 2014, 5:42 pm

    I hope so. Alot of people are counting the lions out, but I say we can’t. This means so so much to them to beat the Packers at home for the NFC title. We need to show up and be prepared won’t be a easy game, but we will prevail.

  9.   December 26, 2014, 5:40 pm

    Agree with some of your comments on the line, but I think the biggest factor will be how well our receivers can run their routes with the disruption from the Lions secondary, and whether the officiating crew will call the interference and contact events that stifled our receivers last time we played them. Given the way both teams have progressed through the season, the Pack has an excellent opportunity to set the tone for the playoffs with a win on Sunday.

  10.   December 26, 2014, 5:15 pm

    Cant wait for the game on sunday! I would really love a blowout game to prove to everyone packers are and always will be nfc north champs!and with that being said boost confidence and moral off the roof with that 1st round bye and home field advantage and then hit the superbowl!

  11.   December 26, 2014, 5:00 pm

    I think you are right!!!! The packers are gunna win but it will be a closer game! Cant wait to see

  12.   December 26, 2014, 4:59 pm

    So glad the “experts” are picking the Lions. Packers always do better when they aren’t picked to win. Love my Packers.

    •   December 26, 2014, 6:41 pm

      The so called experts have many times been wrong when picking a team to win.. I have seen BIG upsets on some of this games. With that said, it is not going to an easy game for the Packers even at home. The Lions are hungry, I hope the Packers are more hungry then the Lions.. And truthfully I am nerves, of course I want my Packers to WIN, so GO PACK GO!!!

      •   December 26, 2014, 8:00 pm

        Jeff is wrong again. All 9 of the CBS experts, and all 13 of the ESPN experts are picking the Packers.

    •   December 26, 2014, 5:40 pm

      Well Dani that might be bad then because the commentators are now picking Green bay to win and its like 3 out of 5 sports writers as well so since I put this post in to be reviewed things have changed in their opinions lol…But mine has not I still say the Pack wins this walking away!

  13.   December 26, 2014, 4:48 pm

    I still think it will be a close one, all depends if the real Packers show and play two sterling halves of football
    That said
    GO PACKERS make it 5 in a row!!!!!

  14.   December 26, 2014, 4:43 pm

    Until the Lions win at Green Bay, which hasn’t happened since 1991, I’ll take the Pack every time. Even if Detroit wins one in Titletown, I’ll still go with the Green & Gold.

  15.   December 26, 2014, 4:33 pm

    I love everything you said and it’s all true and I think the game will be another Packers victory at home and clinch the NFC north!

  16.   December 26, 2014, 4:31 pm

    Jeff I think your right. But not as big, my prediction is 28-14 or 38-24. The lions are a tough team but I believe my pack are tougher and want it more. Oh yea watch for peppers to have a Hugh game along with Matthews and our secondary. Go pack go
