When: Friday @ 9pm CT in Arizona

Raji will play around 20-25 snaps.

Sutton will get some work with the 1st unit.

Flynn, Matthews, and Barnett are doubtful.

Starters are expected to play the entire 1st half and possibly a little bit into the 3rd quarter.

Anquan Boldin and Steve Breaston are both in question weather they play or not.

This is the biggest test before the regular season. I was hoping Barnett would be ready for this one, Matthews as well. Those two missing this live action is gonna set them back a little bit. Raji was very dominant in penetrating the protection last game. Hope to see more of that. I'm so pumped for this game.

I like that we face one of the league's best offenses in the most crucial preseason game. We'll get a good idea of where our defense stands and what flaws still need to be worked out.

Yeah I've got cable, no NFL Network. I also don't have a DVR, although I really should have gotten one for this season. I guess I could dig through the closet and dust off the VCR.

Where do you live? I know they've been rebroadcasting the game afterwards. This week it starts at 12:30am.

I'm in the Milwaukee area. And yeah, I forgot about that. I rewatched some of last weeks game late night when nothing else was on. Cool.

You can always go to tenyardtorrents and download the games. That's usually what I end up doing during the regular season since I dont' get very many Pack games out in CA...unless its national TV. I usually just watch streams which are crappy quality and freeze all the time when the game airs live...then the next day I download a HD broadcast from somebody who recorded the game and uploaded it on tenyardtorrents, and just watch it again but in much better quality

5 things to watch in Friday night's game

1. The Packersí starters will play at least a half, their longest preseason opportunity to show the domination of the past two weeks wasnít a fluke.

Itís an especially intriguing test for the new 3-4 defense, which hasnít yielded a point but will be facing veteran QB Kurt Warner, All-Pro WR Larry Fitzgerald and an Arizona offense that last season ranked second in the NFL in passing yards (292.1 per game), third in points (26.7) and fourth in total yards (365.8).

2. Another week, another crucial opportunity for No. 3 QB Brian Brohm, who will play most of the second half because No. 2 QB Matt Flynn is sidelined with a bruised throwing shoulder.

On Wednesday, coach Mike McCarthy called out Brohm for poor decisions in practice, adding, ďHe needs to go out there and have some success (tonight).Ē

The former second-round pick simply isnít playing fast enough, and this might be his last best chance to show he can do it.

3. SS Atari Bigby isnít his old self eight months after significant ankle surgery, and his lack of explosion has raised some red flags.

So far, Bigby hasnít gotten the playmaking opportunities many expected he would in the new scheme, but when he does get chances, he needs to cut it loose and show he deserves more.

Otherwise, the team will have to at least consider taking a look at Anthony Smith with the starters.

4. RB Tyrell Sutton has racked up a team-high 140 yards on 27 preseason carries (5.2 average) against second- and third-stringers.

On Friday, McCarthy will toss in the diminutive rookie with the starters and see how he responds. If he rises to the challenge, Sutton becomes virtually uncuttable.

5. Extended play for the starters also means extended chances for injuries. In last yearís third preseason game at Denver, Bigby hurt his ankle and WR James Jones and RG Josh Sitton suffered knee sprains ó injuries that ruined the season for all three players.

Not much can be done to stop it from happening, but above all else, emerging from this game healthy would be a victory for the Packers.

Really looking forward to tomorrow. I'd like to see Sutton prove himself against the starters enough to earn a roster spot over Wynn.

They're calling Jennings questionable to return with a blow to the head.

Wynn with a nice spin move. Looks like Grant, Jackson, and Wynn are rotating.

Offense stalls in the redzone. The Cards did a nice job of getting pressure.

Finally get some pressure. Woodson blitzed. He and Chillar sack Warner. Warner fumbles the ball out of bounds. It looked like Trammon Williams recovered though right before. Might be challenged.

I agree 110%, it is just preseason but they are playing their starters. We are playing our starters, and it's like our first teamers dominate for the most part.

We scored 38 points in the first half without Greg Jennings. That's insane.

08-28-2009, 10:43 PM
The offense, if everyone is healthy, should have no trouble beipng top 3. Just want to see the D keep swarming the ball carrier, pressuring the Qb and continue to force turnovers. They haven't really pressured Warner as much as previous weeks...but they still have gotten a few hits on him and have forced 2 fumbles off of him...so can't be too mad. Run D a bit shaky tonight, but that can be attributed to the D not really showing their hand. Cards were gonna get their yards regardless, so it's great to see the D only hold them to 10 points.


Overall....just a great first half. This offense is sexy

cvv84
08-28-2009, 11:02 PM
Starters are pretty much done. Several of the defensive guys have their pads off. Brohm is warming up.

Secondary is getting hammered though. Leinart comes in and goes 6/9 for 100 yards.

"It's speculative until I see the game tape, but I believe they game-planned us," Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "They were prepared and they were on a mission to accomplish exactly what they did. That was to come in here and set a tone."

You have to be kidding me. Its the 3rd preseason game, where most teams play there starters for at least the 1st half of the game. Our offense picked apart a Superbowl team while our new defense held a top 5 offense to 10 points. Whisenhunt is lucky we took out our starters at halftime.

Also congrats to Matt Leinart on tearing up Joe Porter and Trevor Ford and fumbling 3 times.

Yeah we gave up some big plays, had some missed tackles, but 1st team on 1st team we dominated.
