Don't wanna underestimate GB, but don't see how they beat us in the opener when we're a better team.
I have no problems with them lately (unlike NYG or Seattle) but I have absolutely no sympathy for them possibly being on a long losing streak against us.
To everyone here (and I hope Packers fans see this too), do you remember the 789-1 record the Packers had against the 49ers from
1995-2010?!?! That solo win despite an uncalled rice fumble and a legendary Steve Young throw...so basically like 790-0.
Very frustrating series ( it bothered me even in the down years). Especially when you consider they sucked against cowboys in playoffs and fared well against us more because of Holmgren than perhaps an all world team. We were denied one or two super bowl opportunities thanks to them, and that annoying ass Favre who I'm glad had his last postseason games as a packer and Viking end in game losing picks.
Yeah. I can get riled up over the wisconsin team just as much as the others.
F the Packers and all of the video vault thieving coaches that defected from us carrying over our offense. Holmgren started them down the path of running their organization the same way we ran ours then Favre goes on the telly saying its our (GB) offense now as they proceed to beat us time and again with our own sh!t. Now you got McCarthy there with crybaby Rodgers sniping Tolzien in a desperate attempt to gather intel
GB makes me think of this years Ravens team. GB spent the world on Rodgers and it cost them any semblance of an OL or a stud vet RB (Jackson ATL), just like the Ravens did with that monster, and foolish Flacco deal. They lost their entire defense. Teams that overpay 1 guy, even the likes of Rodgers, tend to fall off pretty quick. They cant protect him with their line, and cant protect him with the lack of a running game. The Smiths may end his opener in the first series. I dont care how good Rodgers is (and I dont deny he is the best QB in the NFL right now), without a supporting cast around him, there is no way one man can beat the team that Baalke and Harbs have put together. I say its a route. Not as bad as the playoff game, but I bet we see McCoy early in the 4th.
This game could get ugly. The Packers have actually got worse if that's possible since our last meeting and we've gotten better. I predict a more lopsided victory for us then during the playoffs. Everyone is healthy and thwir O line is so weak....
