Cory's Corner: Home Field Matters

In a year of parity and COVID, securing the No. 1 seed means even more. 

The Packers are one of the best teams in the NFL this season. 

Yet, the Vikings have remained a thorn in their side — handing Green Bay one of its three losses. The Packers host the Vikings on Sunday night but it’s not just about trying to avenge the Week 11 34-31 loss. 

This is about maintaining perfection at home. The Packers are looking to go 8-0 at Lambeau Field for the first time since 2014. 

The Vikings are currently the eighth seed in the NFC for a 7-team playoff field. Minneota is 7-8, but has lost four of those games by three points or less. 

On the other hand, Green Bay is 12-3 and five of those wins have come by three points or less. 

“That's the bottom line in this league,” said Packers coach Matt LaFleur. “I think as we get closer to the end of this thing, I think these games get tighter and tighter and tighter. And that's typically how it goes in the playoffs as well.”

LaFleur makes a great point. Postseason games are generally really tight and the Packers have already played in plenty of those games this year. 

It has also been a really even year. There has been a lot of parity throughout the league. Jacksonville beat Buffalo, Detroit beat Arizona and Houston beat the L.A. Chargers. Those three teams have a combined eight wins this season. 

Which stresses how important home field is. If the Packers can get a winning nudge in a year that has seen plenty of even play, getting teams to come to Lambeau is definitely the ticket. 

Have Kyler Murray and Arizona come to Green Bay and watch them breathe in the frigid January air. Welcome Tom Brady and Tampa Bay back to Green Bay, knowing that this unit has earned its stripes in nail biters. Matthew Stafford and the Rams didn’t fare well when they came to Green Bay Nov. 28. And Dak Prescott and the Cowboys will have more to deal with than Rashan Gary when they step foot inside 1265 Lombardi Ave. 

You could make the argument that the Packers won Super Bowl XLV as Road Warriors and that home field doesn’t matter that much. Not this year. With COVID going around, this is the year that you want to be in a steady routine and playing at home. 

“When we’re back in this building, we have to attack it on a daily basis, which I think our guys embrace, and they take that to heart,” said LaFleur in November.

Of all teams, Minnesota is relishing the opportunity to play spoiler. The Vikings haven’t won back-to-back years at Lambeau Field since 2004-05 after beating the Packers 28-22 on Nov. 1 last year. Wide receiver Adam Thielen is having season-ending ankle surgery and Kirk Cousins is 3-3-1 vs. Green Bay since joining the Vikings in 2018. 

The Packers have 15 players on the COVID list combined with Aaron Rodgers, David Bakhtiari and Billy Turner not practicing. 

Green Bay has had plenty of setbacks this season but the Vikings aren’t going to feel sorry for their division rival. If the Packers want home field advantage, they are going to have to go out and get it.

Well, what sares me the most for this game is that Packers might again underestimate opponent, as they underestimate Browns, Saints, Ravens becuase of their injury/Covid problems (well, they were surely suprised how Saints were good with Winston and how good Saints D played in the first game of the season!). It must not be the case again in the next game, if will be than we will witness the spoiler. Also, I would like to see some new inovative offensive game plan, just to put to future opponents something more to consider on their D. And D must stop playing 2 DL and 2 OLB at the line of schrimage, as this showed as catastrophy against run, which will be obvious plan for Vikings....

If the Packers want? Thats just not enough. The packers need more. They need their best to come back. Rusty or not. They'll beat the vikings. Because we have Rodgers. But don't be fooled for a second this team can win it all. This team is winning by Luck. And Luck won't work in the play-offs. Damn right the home field advantage will matter. But Defense has been the problem for the last ten years. And the laziness with the breakdowns are obvious. The special teams still are a question mark. The Notification of So Long is in the air. And it must be reversed with strength, honor, and commitment.

All true, but look around the league the best teams are losing those games not finding a way to win. !3-3 with 3 pro bowlers and a top 5 TE out for most of the season. A bye will be a great advantage and could be what propels us to a championship. I'm more concerned about Covid.

There is truth there and also several 3 and outs by the offense at the worst possible times don't help as the Defense is right back at it instead of a 5-7 minute decisive drive by the offense. Tends to make a defense not playing well, play much worse. Good thing our secondary has given us life and ended games when it was looking bleak. We are a fortunate team. Let's hope JA is in pro bowl form coming back and we stay healthy and pick up a beast DL left over on someones practice squad.

Home field is imperative with most other possible opponents being a domed or warm weather team. It’s what the Pack is built for with Dillion/ Jones/ Adam’s/Rogers combo; IMO

Except for a ridiculous PI penalty call and Kevin King, we would have been in the Super Bowl.

Coaches & players the time is NOW. Get it done for this organization

We had better hope Rodgers doesn't get Covid, like Cousins did. That would be disastrous! Rodgers does not want to be an idiot like Cousins has shown himself to be and just when his team needs him the most. Alas, it may be too late! The variant is running unchecked through all manner of sports teams and I fear that it is only a matter of time before it hits the Packers, again. How would you like losing Rodgers at this point in the season? Home field advantage is on the line. Super Bowl hopes are on the line. It may be selfish of me to worry about this team's chances of advancing, without Rodgers, but it would be unrealistic to do so, knowing what his stance is regarding the virus and his own personal health status.

The thought process of "it's better to get sick with COVID to avoid catching COVID again" makes no sense at all. Getting COVID without being vaccinated places anyone at a higher risk of hospitalization and death. Getting the shot dramatically reduces this risk. Just get the shot and move on -- 9.18 billion doses have been administered worldwide.

I am no expert by any means but I read that warmer weather and sunshine is harmful to the virus. Green Bay is not like that. I also read that after catching the virus, that person is less likely to get it again. That’s how immunization works. A shot introduces the virus into the body and triggers an immune response. So, catching it does the same thing. The only difference is if there is a variance to the virus that the body does not recognize. On the other hand some people are more resistant to it than others. Because he already had it Rodgers is probably less likely to get it again.

Packers should secure the #1 seed and home field with wins against the Vikings and Lions. Last year there were few fans due to covid, and home field meant very little. Not this year. Surprisingly, Green Bay is 0-3 under Rodgers with temperatures below 10 degrees (one road game). The extra week might allow another injured player to return. It's a league of parity, and the team that has good games in all three phases (O, D, ST) will be in the Super Bowl. Hard to predict which two teams will be playing, but I hope one is the Packers.

The Packers have fought hard this year. Considering all the injuries to key players to be sitting with a 12-3 record is quite an accomplishment. LaFleur, Rodgers, Adams, Jones, and Dillon are a tough offensive nucleus. This team can win it all. But will the Packers be favored in the playoffs? I doubt it.

We've all seen how awful the defense has been for weeks now, and we blame Barry. How about LaFleur? Instead of forcing changes he's on the sideline pumping up the crowd to get them to make noise so opposing QB's signals won't be heard. Now there's a plan.

LaFleur's winning record has been incredible. But it's fairly obvious he hasn't a clue about D. Yes, he's lost All-pros, but Packer fans are spitting in their beer watching this idiotic Packer scheme, DB's playing ten yards off and back-peddling when six yards net a first down. Almost never blitzing. No contain on the outside. We all see it, and yet it continues. The scheme is to prevent big plays, let the opponent march down the field, and at some point, he'll make a mistake. Green Bay will at some point be the capital of hair transplants if this is allowed to continue.

Terrible D has been the Packer way for years now. And it's why Rodgers and his great offenses haven't scored much in the playoffs, because Rodgers is sitting on the sidelines while the opponent eats up the clock. Every team in the league knows this is how you beat the Packers. Limit Rodgers's minutes. Playoff teams are best at exploiting it.

Dallas and Tampa Bay each have an offense that will eat up the Packer's "scheme." We'll have to beat one or both to get into the SB. Oh, and they both have better defenses than the Packers.

LaFleur absolutely has to stop being a sideline cheerleader and become a defensive-minded coach. There isn't the same nucleus of good players on the D as there is on O, and there are some really bad players that make for damaging holes. Lowry and Lancaster in the middle couldn't stop a rolling ball of toilet tissue and if King has to play I believe it's game over. Brady will undress him once again.

But the D can be better if it is coached better. And that's more on LaFleur than Barry. He has to make Barry accountable. And the players. When I see LaFleur on the sideline encouraging the crowd I think back to Lombardi when his defense wasn't playing well. He'd grab players by the collar and threaten to bench them, anger in his face, "What the hell's going on out there! Grab, grab, grab!"

Lafleur obviously cares about the D but simply doesn't know what to do. His whole career has been about the offense. How about taking a page from another great coach this week? Belicheck has one simple rule, take the opposing team's best player out of the game.

If LaFleur can stop either Cook or Jefferson this week the Packers should win easily. They should win easily regardless, with Cousins out, but if Cook eats up the clock and Jefferson has another 150-yard game and 2 TDs, then we'll know that LaFleur has no clue and has been riding Rodgers coattails as much as McCarthy did.

And home field won't mean diddly.

Bet you wrote the same thing about Mike Pettine last season. Lafleur made his choice and has to live with it. Defense is hard to play in this league, and the NFL want it to be this way. The main difference between Barry and Pettine is we know Pettine adjusted and changed his defense when playoff time came. (You think it's an accident that the Packers got to NFCC each of the past three years) We don't know what adjustments Barry will make come playoff time, or what new defensive formations within the scheme he will use. Those are all unknown till playoff time. It's the game within the game...

Let me list a few items using a numbered list.

First, any team that can run the ball well, and GB has seen a few, is essentially built for this weather. It is not restricted to GB as many seem to believe falsely as like other myths of fans.

Secondly, this type of weather, or as it's usually referred to as 'Packer Weather' is at times, often, a Special Teams killer, and the Packers have done a killer job on their own and without the weather playing a part in those near-death experiences.

C, and this is to recognize that deep thinker Buzz from Home Alone. The defense could slip even further to a ground level due to the weather, which like Special Teams seems to want to continue being the reason for the lack of SB appearances as late-game comebacks by an opponent seems likely based on the law of averages and will rear it's ugly head in the game needed to make an SB appearance, again.

Fourth, the picture used is deserving of ridicule since this article again mentioned Covid, and I would suspect or expect that this person who exudes an unhealthy lifestyle is one of the reasons why all others must enslave themselves to mask-wearing, isolation lockdowns, etc, and blame his lack of health and eventual death on Covid and others for not sacrificing their health and freedom to breathe normally under the previous mandates.

E, it amazes me how in casinos, which are everywhere now, that every patron needs to wear a mask, and yet if you are smoking, drinking, or need to have an oxygen tank you do not need to mask up. Does doing these three things at the same time or separately prevent the Covid virus from infecting, and if so, shouldn't that be a mandate for everyone. Drink, smoke, and have oxygen nearby since blowing people up is of no matter if Covid is prevented?

Happy New Year!!!

I refuse to take the vaccine because I'm not a coward. I have never been tested and I have never felt ill, and when I do feel ill, I'm sure the first words from the Doctor will be 'Have you been tested'? so I can blame Covid for your illness, regardless of what might be ailing me. I'm sure a broken foot was caused by Covid and you are the type that would agree just to belong to the collective of cowards.

One less game to play, no travel and dealing with airports, hotels, buses getting to the stadium, just LESS contact with people outside of the Packers organization. Personally I think that rule where Packers all stay in a hotel the night before home games should be put on the shelf too. LIMIT contact as much you can with people NOT paid by the Green Bay Packers Organization. IF these guys can't keep themselves in check for one night before the game IN Green Bay Wisconsin, before a win or go home senario, then we have the WRONG players. Personally I think we have the RIGHT guys in place.

"On the other hand, Green Bay is 12-3 and five of those wins have come by three points or less."

I LOVE this stat. I like a team who shows they can win the close ones. BUT just about everyone of those wins have come ON THE ROAD. At home the Packers have won by 18, 10, 14, 17, 8, 15, and 2 last week against the Browns.....Hmmmmm

I get it, this team and the Defense hasn't been great lately. BUT at home they've been better, much better, not to mention Rodgers is pretty awesome at Lambeau too. Personally, I like our chances to win Championship #14 this year.

BTW...Whoever wants Dallas I say bring that shit here! I would love to see that STUPID look on Jerry Jones face in the box when he loses!.....AGAIN!!!

Never, never, never underestimate an opponent!

the Viqueens could be a very bad matchup in the playoffs. We need to put out their candle NOW!

We’re going to beat the snot out of the Purple Putrescence. It’s always harder to score in deep cold and they’re already missing the QB. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Purples don’t even reach 20.

Now there's something I can agree with. LOL

Agreed. It'll be a heavy dose of Dalvin Cook - probably 30+ carries since that's their only hope. Packers should stack the box and dare Sean Mannion / Kellen Mond to throw the ball in the cold.

I agree—they won’t score 20.

Great teams can win at home or on the road.
I want a #1 seed for the sake of Packer fans —the best in the NFL—to see their/our team at home.
As Madden said (many times), “ if a football shrine were to be built for the NFL, it should be in Green Bay”.
Moreover, the one additional week to recover might just be the recipe required to put us over the top.
