    Here they come, Detroit.

    If GB's O line and TEs can give Rodgers a few seconds and keep Detroit's front four from killing him, they'll be in good shape. Quick passes, screens, and TE match ups will be key to putting up points.

    For Detroit to win, Stafford needs to keep moving the chains, finish time consuming drives with TDs, and keep GB's offense on the sideline. GB's D isn't that good - they give up a shit-load of yards, but always seem to stiffen up when it matters.

    Should be a great game - looking forward to watching it with a gut full of booze and turkey.

    If GB's D-line can get any pressure across the line, the Lions will have a very slim chance of competing. The Lions have proven over and over again that the O-line is suspect against any of the higher talent D-lines this season.

    I look forward to seeing a shoot-out. Hopefully, the Lions can mount some sort of ground game to keep the Pack honest.

    Either way, I'll be drinking cheap beers and Canadian Club with my wife's Polish uncle, sitting on a 40 year old flower patterned couch, waiting for the turkey to finish it's dehydration cycle. Maybe NicoWife's loser 46-YO POS living-in-the-basement cousin will share some of his doobage to make the day interesting. :lol3

    He asked to take my moto for a ride once. He was, of course, drunk. Telling him NFW almost got him to take a swing at me. Again. He really is a POS. :deal

    I think this is one of the games the Packers may drop. Detroit needs the win, especially with Chicago down Cutler.

    I would love to see Detroit take this one, but I'm not putting any money on it.

    Pretty tough to go undefeated in this league. Ford Field will be a madhouse of drunkardness, hopefully making it impossible for GB to get plays off. Might even have more Lions fans than Pack fans this time. Maybe. :lol3

    There is no way in hell I'd lay money on it, just won't surprise me if this is the Pack loss. I'm still seeing them as 14-2 or 15-1 come playoff time.

    The only game I see left that is a "for sure" win is KC. The rest of the teams could sting them---even Cutlerless Chicago. Figure a GB team that has cinched home field... :dunno

    I'd like to see them lose one or two, just as a gut-check before playoff time. Hate to see them go all that way and end up pulling a New England.

    That being said, I hope they thump Detroit this week.

    And I'll do the overweight white guy Heisman pose when Woodson houses one of Stafford's limp-wristed out routes.

    Unless Stafford shows up drunk, there will be no limp wristing involved. The boy's got a cannon Favre would admire. :deal



    Hodag, you might as well have kicked me in the nuts. Two years of therapy to erase that from my memory and now, fuck, it all comes roaring back. :cry

    One of the local sports stations were just talking about how the Lions have lost 7 straight on Turkey Day. :huh Disgusting. Fuckers better show up tomorrow. Wonder if someone might be able to get a bunch of talent into Rogers' room tonight, maybe wear him out a bit. :lol3

    Aaron Rodgers would go 24 for 28 with 5 TDs in a hotel room full of "talent." GB 31 DET 16...let's see how close I get.

    Ugghhh, I hope it is a better game than that. If Kevin Smith shows up and dogs the crap out of them, Rodgers will not have the ball quite so much. Big if. You are probably close though. Those cheese folks have a pretty stout team.
