It seems a lot of people aren’t too concerned about his week’s game in Detroit. I wouldn’t rest too easy, you best bet the Green Bay secondary is going to have one of its toughest challenges of the season.
According to the folks at Scout.com it’s nothing short of a tall order.
Says writer Bill Huber:
“Even though the Lions no longer feature Mike Martz’s pass-happy offensive attack, Detroit’s offense poses some big challenges to a Packers defense that was barely tested through the air last week against Minnesota.
Namely, those challenges are 6-foot-5, 239-pound Calvin Johnson and 6-foot-3, 211-pound Roy Williams at wide receiver. Johnson seems poised for a breakout season, while Williams and Packers cornerback Al Harris have engaged in several games inside of games during Williams’ first four NFL seasons.”
It is about 50/50 that the Packers will be without star corner Charles Woodson for the game, which would leave a budding Tramon Williams to handle the talented Johnson. If that were to be the case, it is very likely we could also see a ‘gulp’ Jarrett Bush sighting as well. I’d rather have my great-grandmother back there personally, but perhaps we will see more of Patrick Lee and less of Jarrett this time around. One can only hope.
