I wouldn't say that. This team is like the old Saints. Can't bet on them or against them. You just don't know who is going to show up. I could honestly see it going either way.

Their defense is quite a bit better than ours.
Looks like I was wrong!

GB defense is 31st in rushing yds though - please don't tell me we're 32nd.

They suck at defending the run, but we don't emphasize that so what does it matter?

The weak link in this game is Aaron Rodgers versus our pathetic defense. He's on fire.

Go ahead and pick them out now. We're winning.

Just wash 'em first, okay? I don't want to see anybody getting sick.

Time to give Ingram and Robinson plenty of the ball. Robinson looked great against Vikings and Cowboys. He might be able to exploit the Packers' D.

Edit - just read Thomas is out for 2-3 weeks

Socks?
Boil them in a chicken broth to enhance the flavor.

I am here to remind EVERYONE the last time the Pack won a game in the Dome was a Farve vs Bledsoe Superbowl.

Re: Saints are favored against the Pack Sunday Night

I'm hoping the best QB in the game (my .02 cents) has an 'off night'.

They've actually been much better against the run the last three weeks. Gave up just over a hundred yards rushing to Minnesota and Carolina but most of those yards were garbage time after the game was well in hand. Also did a very good job against Miami outside of one scoring drive and a terrible job stopping a read option play where Tannehill broke off like a thirty yard run.

Agreed on Rodgers though. Manning, Luck and Rivers might be getting headlines but Rodgers is playing nearly as good right now as he did during his 2011 MVP year. Plus he hasn't really had to throw it a lot lately and been able to sit out the fourth quarters against the Vikings and Panthers. To say he's as rested as a guy can be after seven games would be very accurate. Going to be a REAL test for the secondary this upcoming Sunday night.

Guess the question is: Is our play-calling coach as smart as we think he is? We do have Ingram back.
