Holly revels in taking potshots at other NFL teams. As with most commentary that comes from Washington, D.C., snark is liberally applied.
For the Packers to go into Soldier Field and raise the Halas Trophy, they’ll have to expunge all of the demons that have followed them since week 3.
The Atlanta Falcons are sick and tired of hearing about how the Packers are going to waltz into Atlanta and win handily. They’d like to remind you that they’re the #1 seed, they won the FIRST time, and they’re going to do it again.
We’ll find out on Sunday whether four months of game film was enough for Dom Capers to crack the secret to the Michael Vick-led Eagles offense.
If the Packers want to keep their fading playoff hopes alive, they’ll have to steal a win from the Patriots, a team that’s playing better than anyone else in the league.
In the year’s last “easy” game, the Packers face the Lions, who’d love nothing more than spoil the Packers season and break their 19-game division loss streak.
The Packers need to win on Sunday, if only to save us from having to watch the 4-7 49ers make the playoffs.
Last year, the Packers got torched by savvy quarterbacks. Against Atlanta’s Matt Ryan, Dom Capers has a chance to prove he’s gotten that “cleaned up.”
What comes AFTER that emotional release that comes with finally, finally, getting a win over Brett Favre? Potentially, a really good football game.
It may be “next man up” for the Packers against the Jets this week, but that’s a hard game to play when you have to go out and GET a guy to be that “next man.”
The Dolphins are bye-rested and healthy. After two ugly home losses, a win on the road, against the injury-riddled Packers, would set the team back on track.
The Washington Redskins love nothing more than to play the spoiler. Can they pull off the upset…and incite panic in Green Bay?
I keep saying that “these aren’t last year’s Detroit Lions,” and I believe it…when everyone’s healthy. Injuries are dooming the Lions early this year.
You know you’ve moved on. You know you’re smarter, more mature. But all of the sudden, there you are, caught in the same place you were in high school. The Bears forced the Packers to relive the worst parts of their 2009 season on Monday night.
Holly believes, hands down, that the Bears Still Suck. You can’t convince her just yet, however, that they aren’t a really tough match-up for the Packers in primetime.
