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.
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.
What comes AFTER that emotional release that comes with finally, finally, getting a win over Brett Favre? Potentially, a really good football game.
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.
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.
Welcome to another edition of Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the next Packers opponent, the Chicago Bears. To be honest with you, this game feels a little like a high school reunion. Back in W1, we both thought we were cool, we both had primetime QBs and in-your-face defenses, and so [...]
Welcome to a special early edition of Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the Packers Thanksgiving opponent, the Detroit Lions. It’s been 6 weeks since the 26-0 shutout at Lambeau Field, with the Lions spending the intervening weeks losing to the Rams, Seahawks, and Vikings by a combined 40-76, before earning win [...]
So here we are. It’s deep into football season, and I’m so disappointed by how my team is playing that I find myself loath to read any articles on JSOnline. Lucky for me, I have 31 other teams to write about, right? Three weeks ago, I took a borderline-premature look at the state of the [...]
Welcome to Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the next Packers opponent, the (now 6-1) Minnesota Vikings. I feel a little déjà-vu with this one, having done a Vikings post four short weeks ago, but that can’t be helped. Now at the season’s halfway point, this game is as much about ownership [...]
After 6 weeks, patterns are beginning to form in the NFC about which teams can expect to compete into next year, and which teams will be out of the race before December. Of the two undefeated teams, the Saints have a 99-point advantage over their opponents, and, if they can make it past the Dolphins [...]
Welcome to Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the next Packers opponent, the Detroit Lions. In contrast to Week 4′s monumental and record-breaking showdown with the Vikings, this week’s game is a “ho hum, it’s the Lions” kind of game. The line is 13.5 and the city of Detroit cares more about [...]
Welcome to Opposition Research, where I’ll be taking a look at the next Packers opponent, the Minnesota Vikings. I could try to be dispassionate and approach this post like I did the one before it, but you know that’s not going to work here. Everyone in the national media is talking about this game – [...]
An interesting factoid this afternoon from Tom Pelissero on Twitter – the NFC North went 4-0 on the week. With the Lions finally having won a game (their first since December 2007), I wondered just how far back you’d have to go to find the last time the North had such a good outing. Not [...]
