Have to stay diciplined on defense and really, I'd like to see more zone to keep him contained.

Eric Walden sure made some big plays today didnt he.

Hopefully Cullen Jenkins is back, but there are no for sure's when it comes to his legs.

How interesting that we start our playoff run in Philly against Vick, considering we started our season in Philly against Kolb, but then got Vick.

At least we have some time now to prepare for the speedster, but I still somehow expect that we will also see some of Kolb.

Unless Vick gets hurt, why in God's name would the Eagles play that piece of **** Kolb?

That was a rumor floating around today that Vick might not be able to play the entire wild card game. Pretty stupid rumor to begin with and quite obvious that the Eagles wanted to rest their guys. Obviously Vick didn't play and I don't think that McCoy, Maclin, or Jackson played much or at all either.

Well the first time we played you Matthews knocked out your starting QB (you're welcome by the way), so hopefully he can do it again.

This is not fair, I've been having flash backs of Vick thrashing us with the Falcons at Lambeau in the playoffs and 4th and 26...it should have to be one or the other.

Hahahahaha, inorite? 4th and 26 is still worse, though. 4th and 26 or Super Bowl. Biggest fail of clutch defensive play ever.

That unless part is key. He probably will get hurt. He already is hurt.

Well, I'm almost 99% certain that you guys are going to come into Lincoln Financial Field and win this game handily. Our defense is atrocious this year and those CB blitzes (paging Charles Woodson), for some reason, are unreadable by Michael Vick.

If you do go on to win, at least make it all the way, OK? I don't want to see a Saints repeat, and I don't want to see the lame-ass Bears in the Super Bowl either.

No, you have to put Woodson on Jackson. Don't try to run with him, beat the hell out of him at the line of scrimmage and get him frustrated.

Sportsfan486
01-03-2011, 05:20 PM
It'll be interesting. I think it's been shown that Vick is weak to DB blitzes, so I'm hoping we keep bringing Woodson while dropping Matthews as a spy (which works doubly to keep Vick contained and to guard against McCoy screens and dump offs.)

I think the battle is going to be keeping those big plays under wraps. You know they'll come out firing.

GB12
01-03-2011, 05:26 PM
Who covers DeSean? Chuck (PBHN) Woodson?Depends on where he lines up. If he's in the slot it'll be Woodson, if he's on the outside Williams will probably take him.

From the JS Online blog.

We had the toughest strength of schedule of any team .500 or better. The crappy teams have inflated strength of schedules because they're the ones giving away the wins.

No, you have to put Woodson on Jackson. Don't try to run with him, beat the hell out of him at the line of scrimmage and get him frustrated.
No, if we're in a two CB formation I'd put Williams on Jackson and let Woodson shut down Maclin. Williams has more speed and has been the better cover corner this year. If we're in nickel Woodson should take him in the slot and Williams if he's on the outside. I do not want Shields on Jackson ever. He might be as fast or faster than Jackson, but he's going to get beat badly if Jackson can make one cut.


Woodson will be blitzing a lot again this week like he did against the Bears. Corner blitzes work great against Vick, and if he can escape a bit Woodson will be able to chase him down. We'll probably play the whole game in nickel like we did the first week of the season. That gives us the best match ups with Vick in there. It allows us to use Woodson as basically a third safety.

J-Mike88
01-03-2011, 05:57 PM
IIRC, D-Jack was a non-factor in week one.
Whatever we did then, worked pretty well.

Shields is a lot better now than he was then, but you have to put Tramon on him, except in the slot. That's when Woodson has him, and will get caught clutching & grabbing a few times, hopefully not though.

I expect each & every one of you to be fired up now, and to be here amongst the rest of us Packer brothers. Like real brothers, we often don't all get along.
But at the end of the day, we all bleed green. And gold.
For Christmas, I think we all would trade whatever we got for 4 playoff wins.

That Road Tour starts in the City of Brotherly Hate. If I remember correctly, we had either never won there, or hadn't since like 1961. How fitting, ironic, perfect would it be to start and end the Eagles season with Packer wins in that stadium! That same stadium that caused some of us our deepest Packer heartbreak scares ever...... only until Benedict froze up vs the Giants.

If both teams play to the best of their abilities and lucky bounces and bad calls are non-factors, I have us winning 27-20, which I think was the same score in week one.

But Rodgers will be facing similar pressure as he did this week against the Bears, both in terms of mental and physical, and Aaron didn't look too good, even at home.

And this game is on the road in a very hostile environment. The Eagles defense may not be the Steelers, but they're surely not the Cardinals from the last Wildcard game.

We will need a heavy dose of James Starks in my opinion. Their defense will focus 100% on clogging the passing lanes and applying heat all over from all angles on Rodgers. They will not concern themselves with our run, just like the Giants didn't, and our OL came out pissed off and opened doors for Kuhn, Jackson, and Nance. I think we can gauge them early & often on the ground, and make them change their whole D-gameplan.

However, Clay is not the same Clay as in week 1, and we still barely won. We also do not have Jermichael, Brad Jones, Barnett, Burnett, and they have Vick the whole game (maybe). But we also did not have Erik Walden then!

I'm excited as hell, but already am nervous. Losing in the playoffs when you know your team is good enough to go all the way is like dying.

I would say Walden is a lot more hit and miss than Zombo, which might be disastrous if he has to contain Vick.

I know you guys were seeing Walden run Cutler to the sideline on a crucial broken play, but I was also seeing Walden lose his contain and shoot inside allowing Matt Forte to run outside for a big gain on the ground- in the exact sort of rock fight you can't afford that particular play.

I saw that too, on the big run. He also had another one that he let the edge go for a decent run. Sometimes that's gonna happen with a block from the WR blocking down, but both these times was him doing it to himself..... he's gotta be more careful with Vick there.

Green Bay - Defensive end Cullen Jenkins made his long-awaited return to the practice field Wednesday.

It was the first time since Dec. 3 that Jenkins had done anything but stand around with his teammates inside the Don Hutson Center. After missing the final four games of the season with a calf injury, it appears Jenkins will be back in the starting lineup against Philadelphia in wild-card game Sunday.

The Packers were not in pads, but Jenkins did everything his defensive linemen did in practice, including hitting the blocking sled, running through agility drills and taking part in team work. Jenkins said after the Packers' victory over Chicago Sunday, that he was likely to practice this week, but that he still needed to make some strides in his rehab.

He might have been pulling our leg because it didn't appear he was being held back in any way. We don't know how many snaps he took in the team drills because the media isn't allowed to watch those.

Jenkins' return could make a world of difference even for a pass rush.... http://www.jsonline.com/blogs/sports/112949949.html

I just fistpumped. Seriously. We NEED Jenkins against Vick. He's easily our most athletic DLineman and he also is hell for those smaller QBs with his ability to jump and knock down passes (which Vick at 6'0 with a sidearm delivery certainly qualifies as.)


Rodgers, Matthews, Jenkins, Woodson are our 4 most important players for this game, in my opinion. Rodgers is obvious and then those are the three guys on D that will be responsible most for Vick's scrambling.

I think maybe, Collins and Clifton are equally as important in this particular game as Jenkins is. But let's just hope we don't find out and don't lose any of them.

Classic Woodson here today when he was axed about the Eagles learning from CB Antoine Winfield killing Vick on the blitz and if he expected more focus from the Eagles blocking shemes:

"Any time I'm on the field, I'm getting pointed out for coming on blitzes. So, that won't change. We'll just have to do what we do."

Asked if he thought the Eagles might go to extremes to make sure he gets blocked, Woodson said "No."

"They still have to play their game and we have to play our game," he said. "May the best man win."

I'll go with 27-17 Green Bay. We've been playing playoff football the last two weeks, whereas Philadelphia lost to Minnesota and then took a week off. I think Rodgers comes out hot, we take an early lead and then hold on for the rest of the game.

Vick will probably burn us for a couple big plays, but for the most part Capers should keep him in check. Philly is going to be worried about both Matthews and the corner blitz.

Masthay having a game like he had last week would be huge.

It sure would be great to never have to hear someone say "but Rodgers doesn't have a playoff win" after tomorrow.

Here are the full list of inactives

Green Bay Packers:
QB Graham Harrell
FB Korey Hall
G Evan Dietrich-Smith
G Nick McDonald
LB Frank Zombo
NT Howard Green
CB Josh Gordy
S Atari Bigby

Packers RB James Starks is active today vs the Eagles.

Philadelphia Eagles:
QB Mike Kafka
T Austin Howard
G Max Jean-Gilles
DT Jeremy Clark
DE Bobby McCray
LB Stewart Bradley
CB Brandon Hughes
S Jamar Adams

Nick Cole will start at RG for Max Jean-Gilles, Jamar Chaney will start at LB for Stewart Bradley


So, Eagles will be without 2 starters. I was surprised that Green is inactive, but you figure the Pack want more speed out there today vs Vick and that offense. Still, they better hope for no Dline injuries during the game. Also, great to see that Starks is active. GIVE HIM THE BALL!

Cullen Jenkins BETTER not pull up lame early again, like he did that one game in pre-game warmups.

WE HAVE TO WIN THE TURNOVER BATTLE.
That is my only worry really.
Matt Cassell only threw like 5 INTs all year long and then today was picked off 3 times I think.

We all remember ARODs first playoff pass last year, and his last dropback.

Don't give the Eagles any gifts, contain Vick... don't need to sack him 8 times, just don't let him get any 20+yard runs.

THANK GOD !!!

TIDBITS:

-We didn't play that well overall....I'd say our 'B' game overall.
-We fumbled the ball a few times.
-Jarrett Bush somehow snuck onto the field on defense and misplayed a pass, allowing the TD to Avant. Did someone get hurt? Why was #24 out there?
-James Jones. Are you f***** kidding me? Seriously.....
-Mike McCarthy, terrible playcall on our last drive that should have sealed the game... on 2nd and 10 running it. Play action there would have won the game.... but great playcall on the 2nd down screen to Brandon Jackson in the 2nd half on the 16-yard line for the big TD.
-Nick Collins... thank God the zebras didn't make a bad call on that hit on Celek at the Packers 10 yard line late.
-Tramon Williams..... thank you for having better hands than James Jones. And thank you for not slipping on that play and allowing the winning TD.

We talked this week in the draft thread about drafting a RB, and I told you that the coaches love the potential of James Starks, which is why they kept him in their back pocket for 3 months. He's a poor-man's version of Adrian Peterson out there, and thank God he didn't fumble like Rodgers and Kuhn did today.

don't mind me, just passing this along

Aaron Rodgers playoff stats: 66.7% / 603 yards / 7TD / 1 INT / 121.8 rating. Only 2 games

It's a dead eagle, I choose not to rep things that are un-American.
Good point. Falcons are not Patriotic at least.

Hey, Rodgers has the monkey off his back. Now let me be the first:
Has Matty Ice ever won a playoff game? He's started for as many years as Rodgers has.

Let THAT talk begin!!!!!

I got Atlanta favored by 4-5.

Atl here we come, I think the pack have a chance to make it all the way. My prediction is that the winner of the Packer-Falcon game will make it to the Superbowl.

I hope DD is okay, I am sure he is in pain, but hopefully he can gut out one more game.

On another note, don't just blame James Jones on his drop. I believe Jennings had a pretty crucial drop on the 1st drive of the game that cost us points as well.

James Starks looked pretty good, very similar to Ryan Grant.

Your sig mentions 4th and 26. I refuse to +rep anything that mentions that.

3rd and 14 almost had a new meaning as well :\

Starks is actually more powerful, versatile and more elusive than Grant, when hes in the back field, opposition will have to respect him.

And Driver had at least one drop too. But of course Jones is the only one to ever get **** for drops.

How big was this shoestring tackle by Bishop?

wasn't happy with the receivers today, really. As you said, both Jennings and Driver had drops. Still, they have shown week in and week out you can rely on them moreso than JOnes has

I'm frustrated with him because he can be better. His problems are coachable though, and as long as he doesn't command a good amount of cash, the Pack will bring him back

I bet Jones has a big game next week now

-Jarrett Bush somehow snuck onto the field on defense and misplayed a pass, allowing the TD to Avant. Did someone get hurt? Why was #24 out there?


The Eagles came out with 4 wide receivers, and Bush is the 6th DB. It was a good read by Vick to locate the match-up and a great route by Avant to set up the throw.

How big was this shoestring tackle by Bishop?

It looks like Jackson might have scored if Bishop doesn't make the play. Saved the game.

Tramon Williams was behind him still, he would have made the tackle if Bishop missed.

THANK GOD !!!

TIDBITS:

-We didn't play that well overall....I'd say our 'B' game overall.
-We fumbled the ball a few times.
-Jarrett Bush somehow snuck onto the field on defense and misplayed a pass, allowing the TD to Avant. Did someone get hurt? Why was #24 out there?
-James Jones. Are you f***** kidding me? Seriously.....
-Mike McCarthy, terrible playcall on our last drive that should have sealed the game... on 2nd and 10 running it. Play action there would have won the game.... but great playcall on the 2nd down screen to Brandon Jackson in the 2nd half on the 16-yard line for the big TD.
-Nick Collins... thank God the zebras didn't make a bad call on that hit on Celek at the Packers 10 yard line late.
-Tramon Williams..... thank you for having better hands than James Jones. And thank you for not slipping on that play and allowing the winning TD.

We talked this week in the draft thread about drafting a RB, and I told you that the coaches love the potential of James Starks, which is why they kept him in their back pocket for 3 months. He's a poor-man's version of Adrian Peterson out there, and thank God he didn't fumble like Rodgers and Kuhn did today.

I really don't have an issue with MM trying to run out the clock on that last packers drive. People have been pissed on 3 and 1, 4 and 1 that MM doesn't line up and run it, he tried it and it didn't work out, defense picked him up.

James Jones is really pissing me off, Jennings too although he's not as bad but most of the WR's have been dropping pass this year. Really killing them.

The WR's seem to drop more passes when the weather gets cold. Heading to the dome in ATL should benefit them

Yeah, without Grant we're definitely a superior team on turf. Jones always plays better inside and Jennings speed really becomes an asset.

And whomever said Starks has better power/burst/vision/blah blah then Grant is on crack. Yeah, Starks had a good game against a mediocre defense that wasn't expecting a running game. Grant has had great games against very good defenses. Stark played well today but he's not in Grants stratosphere yet.

Remember Samkon Gado? He had 3 or 4 games better then this one was for us. Don't remember him? That's 'cuz he wasn't actually any good.

Starks definitely showed more than Jackson, though. I do agree that Grant has a better burst. A Grant/Starks combo next year should be good. Jackson on 3rd downs will be great, to

Oh he's definately in Grant's stratosphere, people are talking about Grant like he's this All-Pro runner that we lost comparable to Ahman Green in his prime, when in reality he was really no more then an above average player that did enough to take pressure off Rodgers.

I think after Starks gets an offseason to get back into football shape and learn even more of the nuances of this offense he's going to prove how good he can actually be.

James Jones dropped a perfect pass, soft, in stride, that would have been a huge playoff TD.

Jennings was crucified in Detroit for dropping another perfect pass that cost us a TD and resulted in an Int and a loss......

Driver didn't have a bad drop like that yesterday, and Jennings first drop was high and hard, a very difficult catch.

My 7-year old son could have caught the pass Jones dropped yesterday. That's why you never saw another pass go Jones way after that. I love Jones, but he's lethal with his mistakes too often. Can't have that.

EAGLES FANS ADDING TO THEIR REPUTATION

http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?section=news/sports/pro/football&id=7888708

PHILADELPHIA - January 9, 2011 (WPVI) -- Craig Coenen and his father Theodore had driven down for the game from Macungie, Pa., but their drive back home will be in a car that may have sustained thousands in damage.

"We pulled into the lot, some crazy guys pulled in after us and gave us the finger coming in," Craig told Action News.

But what these Green Bay Packers fans found upon leaving the game was even more unpleasant. "Came out and noticed my car had been trashed pretty much, left side, right side, dents, windshield wipers torn off," Craig said.

So Craig, who resides in Macungie, and his father were then left to pick up the pieces.

They believe it was the same Eagles fans who saw them arriving, explaining they were drinking heavily and took the rivalry way too far.

"It's just terrible that people can do that over a game, they even have footprints going right up the side of the car on to the top, they walked on top of the car. What kind of mentality does that take?" Theodore said.

They tell Action News another nearby car owned by Packers fans also sustained some damage, but for these die hard Packers fans it's all about perspective.

"But the Packers won, so everything's okay," Craig said, trying to add some levity to the situation.
