Well put Muck. Our offense will only be as good as our QB. Lucas has to play well.Originally posted by Muck
The key is Ray Lucas. He has to play some semblance of QB this week, or any week, for us to have a chance. All the defense in the world won't matter if he can't contribute.
I think the big question here is whether or not the offense can hold onto the ball and have enough effective drives to keep Favre and co. off the field. That will be the key for us. Our D is strong but they'll be broken by the Pack's talented offense if we lose the time of possesion battle. If we can win time of possesion we'll have a good chance to win. The Pack will stop Ricky with an overloaded line until Ray shows he can throw a football to the right colored jersey!Originally posted by Dol_Fan5434
Our run D is the only run D to hold Priest Holmes under 100 yrds........ thats a clue........ oh, yeah, and our secondary has Madison, Surtain, Marion, and Freeman........
And Ricky could get whatever he wants on anybody so please do not underestimate him......
Your right Favre, our pass D is known for having lapses and giving up big plays at times. Favre could have a big day. I of course hope not. If we can get pressure on him without letting him get out of the pocket we'll be in business. Easier said than done but our D is capable.Originally posted by Favre4MVP
"Farve is facing the best pass D in the NFL."
Actually, according to the stats, they're the 21st best pass D in the league, giving up 231.9 passing yards per game. They have the 6th best rushing D, giving up only 93.4 rushing yards per game.
Judging by the size of Gilbert Brown, it probably wouldn't be the first time he has eaten a running backOriginally posted by Longlive Pack
I have one word for you. Big Gilbert Brown. Thats little more then one word but He will eat Ricky alive!
I would not be worried either if I were you, I w/b more concerned about protecting Favre and his bad knee and whether constant pressure on him will cause INTsOriginally posted by Favre4MVP
Green has only fumbled once since week 2. Last year he fumbled early in the season too, and then got it under control. I don't see it being an issue.
