I have to disagree with this. I think we will only go as far as our offense will take us. (Packers game only, dont wanna get to ahead of myself)
Point being, When u think of the Packers, you think of Rodgers, simple as that. He's a passer, not a scrambler, and he's been on fire lately.
So that tells me one thing.... Your gonna have to maybe stay in the pocket, and outduel him when we have the ball on offense. I'm not saying dont run with Gore, but teams know that's exactly what we are gonna do. And I'll have to say that Gore is def top 10 RB in the league, i feel. But when they were able to stop Peterson, to a certain degree, then we should be in for a long day on the ground.
The X factor, just like in another thread is Kaep. He's gonna have to have a hell of a game. That really show's what he's made of. And just if anyone asks, oh yeah i have been watching the games, and this is a new beast that Kaep hasnt experienced yet. And I hope that he rises to the occasion.
He will need all his WR's, and both TE's. My thing is, and I'm not making the statement, im wondering, "Is Kaep a true pocket passer that has the ability to scramble, or is he a scrambling QB with the ability to become a pocket passer. I'm still not sure yet. And i think this unknown factor actually helps him.
We are gonna have to score on offense, just as simple as that. The D will do their job, im certain. Not blank Rodgers, but keep those 30+ something points off the board. We just all need to be watching what we do when we have the ball on offense. That's what im soo excited to see.
