What Dallas can't score 30 points? They already did in GB
Completely agree. We are the better all around team. They had zero answers for us last time we played. Zeke did what he wanted and so did Dak. If they try to stack the box, Dak should be able to easily throw on them. Many times have tried to stack the box and stop our run and many teams failed.. including the Packers last time we played them and they had the #1 run defense. The only thing the Packers have is Rodgers. He is awesome and all but he needs more of a team around him to be able to beat us. Only way we lose this game is if we beat ourselves IMO.
Whatever Rodgers does, it is s scary proposition that we will have to beat the 3 QBs that are playing the best right now
That is a tough ask
Offensive Drives of 4 plays or less vs. Packers
Recipe for a tired defense.
Don't let Rodgers and the Pack get out to an early lead and we should be fine. If they get up by two scores, I do not feel confident playing catch-up
First to 35, and a win...
Count on it - I fully expect to hear how losing Jordy Nelson is the only reason they lost (if they indeed do). It would be typical.
Good stuff. What I'm hoping for is that Rodgers "gets his" between the 20's. Our defense has had something good going in the red zone all year. If we can turn several of those Rodgers drives into field goals, and if our offense avoids giving him extra possessions while scoring TD's in the red zone (again, what we've been seeing all year), then I think we win this game.
The one thing I remember from that game was a lot of missed throws by Rogers, our guys were out of position or beaten of quite a few of them. If they don't stay in their lanes he'll get them.
He'll get them even if they do, that was the worst I've seen Rodgers play when he was relatively unpressured. Not sure the playoff book from our first encounter has too much relevance.
We need to score early and often and punish receivers in the middle - Cobb can't run free without consequence.
I look forward to it.
if we win turnover battle, we win
He's the same player who lost to Dallas. He can lose again. He is a man.
Definitely not the same player. He looked like a shell of his former self back then. Now, only Brady is a better QB. This is not going to be some cakewalk.
He IS the same player. You can say he's playing better right now, but he's the same guy. It wasn't someone else out there wearing his jersey. He can have another bad game.
Drago Drago Drago!!!!!!!
I noticed he stood in that pocket longer than normal waiting for receivers to get open. Wouldn't be surprised to see that again on Sunday. Need to pressure him in the 3-2 set.
Thats means pressuring him with 3 DL and a LB.
I'm not sure how comfortable I am rushing with just 4.
That October game was obviously a huge aberration, I don't think anybody on our defense thinks they'll be that lucky again. We are going to have to score at lot to win - which we are capable of doing.
