Packers Calendar: Attention on Three Players With Limited Participation

Packers Calendar: Attention on Three Players With Limited Participation

Today the Packers have their second of three practices this week, as they get ready to square off with the New York Giants in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs on Sunday.

With every single player taking part in practice yesterday, there's very little to look at in terms of health.

Three players were listed as limited participants at yesterday's practice: wide receiver Randall Cobb, tackle Chad Clifton and linebacker Robert Francois. So about the only question is whether they go from limited to full.

Head coach Mike McCarthy will hold a press conference after practice, but it typically is not aired live on the Packers official website on Thursdays. They do, however, usually post it online later in the day.

McCarthy then has an interview aired nationally on satellite radio, Sirius NFL Radio, at 1:40 p.m. Central time.

In the local media, 1 on 1 With the Boys hosted by wide receiver James Jones airs on 101.1 WIXX in Green Bay from 5 to 6 p.m. Central time, which is streamed live.

I like Golic, but Greenie is a tool, even if he's not a Giants fan. He's never played a down of football in his life, or any other sport for that matter. All he does is talk, talk, talk and try to make a big story out of everything.

The national media is so obsessed with anything NY-related, followed closely by anything Boston-related. No wonder they all skim over Green Bay. Fine with me.
If the Packers lose in the playoffs, it won't be this game.

I've got about a twenty minute drive to work... That's about all I can take of those two. And some of their guests like hodge and c.c. are instant dial changers.

Listened to mike and mike as well. I am infuriated at the way this game is being viewed by the national media. All I want to know how these people keep their jobs! They claim GB's defense is terrible, but the NY's defense is fearsome. They make it seem that GB is the underdog. They show GB no respect and an east coast bias. However lets look at the cold hard facts, when these two teams met both defenses played played poorly. The Giants defense played worse. Here's why, both defenses allowed the others QB to throw for over 340 yards and at least 3 tds (Rodgers had four). The crucial thing that makes the Giants defense worse is the fact that they allowed Rodgers to win the game in three plays in the closing seconds. Playoff football and great playoff defenses are predicated on the fact that they can make the big stops and turnovers when the game is on the line. The Giants have shown that the their defense is incapable of doings this against an offense as prolific as GB's. GB's has shown the opposite, their defense has shown a propensity to surrender big yardage but time and time again the defense have made the stops and turnovers when it really mattered. To me this is how playoffs and Superbowls are won. My Prediction for what its worth 35-24.

Don't get infuriated Russ, these slights will only make the Pack prove a point. Unfortunate for the giants, but it's just how it's gonna be.

This may be reaching, but I think it's possible the media is counting on a bit of a letdown from the Pack due to Philbin's son passing away and the emotional distress the team may be facing. They won't say this in public because it's a bit of a copout, but could explain some of the inexplicable predictions.

For the record, I see a really focused Packers team on Sunday that will all but embarass the Giants. If anything, the Philbin tragedy and all the talk about the Giants' streak has forced the Packers to focus harder and realize that they're not the far and away favorites in the NFC right now. That's a good thing, I believe.

Agreed, I think the tragedy will bring out the best from our boys. I don't give the giants a chance in Hell... Now give me a radio show.

Weren't the Packers down both Hawk/Bish that game? That alone makes a difference. I know the Giants had some injuries as well. The Giants played their best game all year that week and still lost. GB was in the midst of a 'slump' I thought that week. They had definitely cooled off from earlier in the season and outside of Rodgers didn't play their best.

This team is healthier than at any other point this season - outside of Collins, home field, unnecessary but extra motivation (Philbin tragedy), and the confidence and poise that no other team in the league can match. Not to mention the best player in the league. I see no scenario that has the Giants winning, unless the Packers beat themselves which hasn't happened all season. The Giants secondary is as bad as any left in the playoffs, and I see Rodgers with 340 yds, 4 TD.

37-24 Packers.

Teams sometimes look for reasons to lose. I don't think that's in the DNA in anyway of the 2012 Green Bay Packers.
