Im just as optimistic as the rest of you, but Im a realist as well. We surprised a lot of teams last year --- I just dont expect any of our opponents to fall asleep on us this time around. Last year, the team rallied around Alex, but this year we're all expecting Alex to rally the team. I think thats easier said than done. He has the potential to open up when he wants, but he's conservative by nature. The way I see it Rodgers is gonna come out tomorrow and let it all hang --- he's gonna be throwing the ball all over the place. I doubt Alex does this --- he's more likely to play conservative, try to avoid the turnovers, and let his RBs/defense set the tone. If our defense can keep Rodgers at bay, then great. Alex has a chance to pull it out. But considering what Rodgers has done over the course of the past 2 years, I find it difficult to believe that he's gonna play like he did against the Giants/Chiefs. Btw, in my opinion the Packers fell asleep in both games bc they thought it would be easy. The Packers are coming out poised to win another ring; unfortunately for us, relying on keeping Rodgers off the field for a victory is not good strategy, especially at Lambeau.
Im hoping we pull off a Rams ala 1999 where Warner and company come out blazing offensively and shellshocked the league. Can Alex do the same ? Doubtful, but Im still hoping.
you forget, we bring out the worst in all teams we play. what the team did yesterday and how they won and what they did goes against every thing you pointed out, are you saying the only reason we won is because green bay fell asleep on us. weak man, weak
