We're gonna get an ass whoopin' from Rodgers and his gang this Sunday. That offense is too potent (cite Manning against our D in preseason), and our offense struggles mightily when Alex refuses to take chances. I think Moss / Crabtree / VD / Manningham are the perfect targets to go to against a weak GB defense. Unfortunately, Alex will likely play conservaball and I doubt anyone outside VD has any significant numbers. Packers win, and win BIG 30+ - 13.
Off to Detroit
when were behind and need to catchup alex takes chances and usually it pays off which is why he has so many comeback wins including a 20 point comeback against ragles
Last year opponents had a different mindset against us. No one thought Alex had the ability to will the team to win, so teams took us lightly. Thats why we made some miraculous comebacks against the Eagles, Lions, and heck even the Saints. This year, teams are gonna dare Alex to beat them. If GB gets an early 2 TD lead, you think McCarthy is gonna sit on it and let the time wash out (ala the Eagles did last year) ? They're gonna keep pushing, and although I think Alex has the ability to pull us out of a deep hole, I dont think he has the will to do it consistently. He's still conservative by nature, and I think against elite teams this year where we might have to play point for point, Alex is gonna lose a lot of battles. Im hoping our D can carry us again, but Im not counting on Alex playing probowl caliber this season.
