Jahnke is a great analyst!

Josh Sitton is right on - the Lions play scumbag defense, period. Good for him for ignoring political correctness and calling a spade a spade. Hopefully it enrages the Lions and makes them play like the scumbags they are.

My prediction: Lions will make our defense look bad both on the ground and through the air. It will be slice and dice in the run game and bombs away through the air.

Matt Flynn will not be able to take advantage of weak Lions secondary, allowing Lions to crowd LOS to stop both Lacy and Flynn. I expect Lions to employ Giants-like defensive plan.

Easy Lions win, probably by about 17 points, resulting in easy cover.

Before the season started, oddsmakers gave Pack an over/under of 10 1/2. With 5 wins and 5 games to go, UNDER = WIN.
