I think we deserve this thread asap after all of us were practically having a heart attack at the end of that game. S-c-a-r-y.

Falcons are a less explosive but more disciplined team. Also a much better running team that had success with that in our first meeting.

If we fumble the football and drop TDs, we're not going to win.

I'm going 31-27 Packers in another close one, with one turnover for each team.

We lost the turnover battle in Philly, still won.
We lost the turnover battle in Atlanta in Nov, barely lost.
We also tackled their FB and Turner worse than we ever have.

If we play our 'A' game, we will win by 10 or more.

If we play our 'B' game, it will come right down to the wire, and refs may decide it... refs kind of had an impact yesterday..... had they flagged Collins for the late hit there, we probably lose and can blame the refs for a bad call. They helped us vs Minny the first time. They Eff'd us in Chicago the first time.

So let's play our 'A' game, and win about 41-27.

There's no reason Rodgers can't roll up another monster game like in Arizona last playoffs.... just minus the first pass INT and last play fumble.

I'm nervous for this game. Very nervous.

We have to play great run defense. Can't give Matt Ryan the time to go 24/28. We're gonna have Walden, not Zombo for this game as well. The O-line kept Rodgers upright for the most part. We were penalized twice as much as Atlanta, gotta fix that. Especially the 15 yard penalty that made their field goal at the end of the game that much more makeable. Other than a couple miscues, we matched up with them across the board last game. James and Jennings were targeted for a combined 16 times last game, 8 each. Both finished with 5 receptions.

I'm not worried. I think it will be kind of close, but I fully expect to win. 24-17 Packers. I'm more confident in this one than last week's.

I'm hoping we open up the deep game more against them. We should be able to take advantage of the turf to do so and it'll be interesting to see if Starks shows better speed in a dome.

I think Matty Ice has gotten a bit overhyped this year at times but gotta give him props for the way he handles business at home.

I'm less scared then I was of the Eagles, as I feel like if we get a lead the Falcons really lack explosive threats on offense; much more methodical.

We HAVE to play better against the run and not miss tackles and if we get pressure on Ryan we'll probably win. That OLine is good and he's used to good protection, he struggles when he's knocked off his game.

I'd certainly say I'm less confident than last week. I'm still slightly above 50/50 though.

Special teams is playing a lot better in recent weeks than it was the last time we played Atlanta.

If Starks plays close to the level he did against Philly, It'll be a huge boost. Our leading runningback against Atlanta was Jackson with 26 yards.

Jordy didn't have any catches yesterday. I'll be surprised if he's not a lot more involved Saturday.

I think with Jones dropping that pass you'll see more of Jordy. Rodgers seemed mucho pissed about that and didn't really look his way again.

When looking back at the last game the Packers were a blown 4th down call and a goal line fumble away from handling the Falcons fairly easily. Now when you add in the momentum they have and the addition of James Starks I don't see how the Packers lose. They're on a mission right now, and I hate to be the one to say it but this is starting to feel like a super bowl run.

It's still going to be a hard fought game though and it really could go either way, but I'd give the Packers the edge based on how they're playing as of late and the overall talent on both sides of the ball.

-Matt Ryan: 0 career playoff wins.
-Michael Turner: Burned us for over 100 in November, and hurt us in 2008 as well.
-Roddy White: We bottled him up as well as anyone has all year, back in November. Can we do it again? Will Tramon be on him or will they get him isolated on Shields?
-Tony Gonzalez: He hurt us, scored a TD on a blown coverage by Bishop & Collins, and then made a huge catch on 4th down, that he really didn't catch. Still, he's dangerous, especially in the end zone.
-Jason Snelling: That bruiser made a lot of our guys look like girls out there, with soft, pathetic wimpy tackles being missed on 2 key plays he made.

And don't forget, they have a good return specialist too, as we saw first hand to help lose that game in November.

If each team plays it's 'A' game, I have us winning 34-27. I see no reason why we can't light up the scoreboard.

If we play our 'A' game and the Falcons their 'B' game, it's Packers 38-20. If the Falcons play bad, we'll route them like we did to the Giants & Cowboys.

-People saying "the falcons don't scare me" are pissing me right the hell off. They may not have anything on paper that jumps out and screams "unbeatable", but that's where they beat ya. nothing to game plan against, so ya just sit back and wait for them to decide how they'll beat teams. This is a solid, complete team. They are well coached, they don't make mistakes and they don't lose at home. Time to wake up. We're going on the road, on a short week to play a 13-3 team.

-And, I'm not saying I don't like our chances. When we're on, we're dominant.

-I hope we coming out throwing on offense. We've done more to establish a running game before this game even started than we have during any game all year. this is one of few games we can go into knowing that the other team needs to respect our running game. It's an advantage we haven't had all year, and I hope we use it.

I agree.... Atlanta has beaten us both times we have played them in the Rodgers vs Ryan era, for whatever reasons. I'd rather get ugly W's than pretty L's.

Good call on the threat of the running back now. Let's open with a pitch to Starks, back to Rodgers, flea-flicker deep to Jordy Nelson. Not Jones because he'll drop it, and not Jennings because they respect his deep speed.

-No. He's a capable RB that a defense has to account for. He can find a hole and fall forward. It may not sound like much, but it's more than we've had all year. Our running game has been so bad this year, I honestly don't think defenses even acknowledged that we may move the ball on the ground. And our passing game has suffered for it.

-No worries about trolling. I think it'd be great if we could get some fun dialogue leading up to the game. Stop by anytime!

Not necessarily just here, but I've seen Packers fans talking about how they now have a new found running game and **** because Starks had a good game against an Eagles D that sucked ass. Now it will probably help open up the PA Pass, but I really think he's barely going to be a factor.

same here, but this season it seems that these are the games the Pack end up losing, and the ones I don't have as much confidence in, they end up winning


They need to rattle Ryan. He didn't pass for many yards, but he completed 24 of 28 passes. Snelling also killed the Packers. Packers are a good tackling team, but for some reason they were awful vs Atlanta in this regard. Need to wrap up better.

If the Packers don't turn the ball over, I think they win. I'll go with 31-21. Pack get a TD to go up 10 midway through the 4th, and the D holds it from there

Dominant for a Packers running back is 3 to 4 yards a carry consistently, and if he can do that Aaron Rodgers will have a field day. I'm not saying he will, but the guy runs hard and falls forward so it's definately possible.

Quite the lack of respect for the Falcons here, I gotta say. I am pretty worried about the explosive Packers (the defensive unit scares the **** out of me), but just because the Falcon's didn't blow many teams out, doesn't mean they aren't good; they finished the season 5th in points scored and 5th in points allowed against.

I see all this mentioning of this team bringing their A game and that team bringing there A game...let me tell you something. If the Falcons bring their A game (more likely than the Packers bringing it due to the bye), there is no way the score is going to be up in the 30s. If the Falcons are clicking on all cylinders (which only happened twice during the regular season: vs CIN and @NO), the Falcons will rush for 125+, convert >50% of their 3rd downs, and hold the ball for 35+ minutes; there is no way that the Packers have enough possessions to put up 30 points against a good red zone D.

1 of 2 things is going to happen this weekend; I can almost guarantee it.

1. Packers win comfortably in Atlanta 24-14
- This is if the Falcons come out flat and the Packers are rocking. The Packers stupid 3-3-5 stymies Turner and Ryan while Rodgers takes advantage of an occasionally very weak secondary and pass defense of the Falcons.

2. Falcons win a close one 24-21
-If the game is going to come down to the wire, I have to go with Matty Ice winning it over Aaron Rodgers. I know it's not all A-Rod's fault that the Packers are 2-13 in games decided by 4 points or less during A-Rod's reign, but the Falcons have too much practice and experience in clutch situations. The Falcons defense comes up big with 2 minutes to go and doesn't allow huge gains or scores while the offense can move methodically down the field. The NO@ATL game was shocking because it was the first time in a very long time that Matty Ice couldn't lead the GW drive, and I don't expect that to happen often.

If the Packers are going to win, I hope they do it with a comfortable margin; I don't think I could take the Falcons losing to the Packers in a close game, especially in the playoffs.

Grant did that for half a season, Starks did it for two games.

I do think he can contribute and be a factor, but he's not going for 100 again. I could see 15 carries for 50 yards, which frankly should be enough anyway. If we have even the slightest bit of a running game our offense can produce.

Jmohr107
01-11-2011, 05:18 PM
In the first matchup, the Packers' inability to run the ball and convert on 3rd-and-short and 4th-and-1 situations was the difference in the game. Even if Starks doesn't explode for 100+ yards again, any kind of contribution from him will be significant, especially considering the abysmal performance in the running game during the first time the two teams played.

Keys to the Game

1) Offensive Line play

We saw what a 6th rounder can do with a little bit of room to run. We need to keep ARod upright and keep the offense in rhythm.

2) Front Seven on Defense

Actually make tackles and BJ if you could just annihilate the opposing center that would be great.

3) No Turnovers

We got lucky that we recovered most of our fumbles against the Eagles, we need to hold on to the football.

4) Special teams

Brandon Underwood please remember back from high school what happens when you touch a punt...That was just frustrating...But honestly, the kick coverages have to be there. Jarret Bush has found his niche; it is on special teams.


If we do those things I say we win. If we don't it will be like a lot of the weeks the Packers have played; heart attack city.

the only factor it will have is in the first quarter where the Falcons' coaches will have some sort of respect for Starks and his play will determine if the coaches keep an eye on him.

Not necessarily. I'd imagine if the Packers were bringing their A game they'd be putting up high point totals and holding the other team back on O.

He's just saying that if we bring our A game and score over say 21, you'll have no chance. And that's simply because our A game means that our drives take forever and a day and leave very little time for the other team to respond. (This isn't saying that if we score over 21 and we win. We are going to win if we can dominate the TOP like we usually do. The Packers have to stop that to win.)

Meh, maybe. We did that to the Patriots and they still beat us. Our offense is explosive enough to score over 21 even in a landslide TOP against us. That is, when our WRs aren't dropping wide open TDs.

Every single loss since the Tampa Bay loss last year has been either by 4 points or less, or the final play of the game (Arizona OT).

Someone mentioned to me that in our 6 biggest road games this year (Philly, Chicago, NYJ, Atl, NE, Phi), that we have dominated in terms of time of possession and yards.
The thing that killed us was either turnovers or penalties, or special teams.

We can whip anyone anywhere. Can we get the win though?

i'm nervous as sch*t!
not because i don't have confidence, i do.

but because it's totally out of our hands, and i feel like this is a game that the refs and the way the oblong ball bounces will decide who lives and who's season ends. just like the first game in atlanta.

i really want to get up on these guys as we did philly, 14-3, but then i want to step on the pedal, as we did in philly when james butterfinger jones refused to accept the 21-3 lead.

my viking fan buddy predicts packers 35-14. dear God, make him a psychic this one time please thank you.

I'm excited to see what Capers gameplan is against Matt Ryan and Michael Turner today. With Matthews, Jenkins, Raji, and now Walden not having to worry about a mobile quarterback like Vick they should be able to pin there ears back and get after the QB. Of course this all hinges on stopping Turner, and I'm sure Capers is going to have something for that, because if we can stop him, or at least slow him down, we'll be able to disrupt there entire game and put the pressure on Matt Ryan to beat Aaron Rodgers and the packers offense, and I like our matchup there.

I don't know I'm just rambling, it's going to be a great game either way.

i have been wondering in the first match up we saw mccarthys offensive gameplan was to come out with a no huddle offense do u think that he will do the same thing again today and try and speed up the game or use a more even slow key pace? and i believe we might see that okie look they use a five front defense to stop turner as we saw in the saints falcons game if u keep turner stopped it stalls the whole offense as ryans a great playaction passer that can keep a drive going in short yardage but when having to go back into shotgun and make plays from 2or3 and long he cant seem to stablize the offense. and i know walden had a great game i think zombo would be a better fit as he is more stable against the run game and doesnt break gap contain to the outside i think hes actually better then mathews in that way or run contain although he does lack effiecent pass rushing skills

Sportsfan486
01-15-2011, 02:21 PM
I think we really need to run blitz early on. I have faith in our corners abilities to keep their WRs in check on long plays, but if they get that running game rolling they're going to gobble at the clock. We also need to make sure one of our safeties, and not a backer, is getting the assignment to cover Tony G.

Also, read an interesting article the other day that said the reason we didn't challenge the 4th down (no) catch is because Atlanta slows down the feed of it's internal camera system to by the time our booth guys got footage of the play Matt Ryan was already snapping the ball. To prevent this from disadvantaging their team, they immediately put any questionable plays on the big screen.. where the 4th down catch was notably absent.

That's been talked about a lot this week. TT and Russ Ball were already down in Atlanta making sure everything was set up right.

I'm not too confident about this game, but I do think we'll win it. Rodgers put together a very clutch touchdown drive last time in Atlanta. I see him doing the same, but getting the win.

that kick return for a td was all bc two pp ran in the same rush lane down the field lack of effort on there part but now that can work in the packers favor as our defense is rested and defense is rested and pp forget nfl offenses are more effiecent the more plays they run in the beggining as they usually use those to set up plays later on with the falcons not being able to handle the ball offensively they lack the amount of plays run to do this and the packers will be able to better adjust offensivly at half time now

Sportsfan486
01-15-2011, 08:20 PM

Sportsfan486
01-15-2011, 08:34 PM
They can't stop us. They just can't.

This is also why we need to re-sign Jones. He might drop balls, but that was a PLAY.

Also, Rodgers.. is he starting to build a legacy as an amazing playoff QB? He's insane.

I expect they'll make adjustments to pass D at half, so I hope we come out and catch them sleeping with Starks.

If only we had better special teams and less mistakes. We'd be a juggernaut.

Tramon Williams is a top 3 corner in the NFL. Period. I thought that was a TD but Tramon had that **** the entire way and shows off his hops and hands.

Tramon is far from top 3, sorry. I'm not a hater or a hugger, but the play in the endzone was only him because Jenkins fell down. The 2nd interception was a terrible decision by Matt Ryan. Yes, he made the plays, but he's not even close to top 10 at this point.

So guys. Think about this. We're going to be playing either the BEARS or the SEAHAWKS to go to the Superbowl. I'll take either matchup 10 out of 10 times. I LOVE how we matchup against both those teams. The Saints would scare me. The Eagles would scare me. The Falcons would scare me. The Bears scares me a little cuz of Hester, but that's it and I fear not the Seahawks.

The thing that makes me not worry as MUCH about a letdown is we've done this four times in a row without a letdown. We've been in the playoffs for four weeks and this was by far our best game so far.

And you gotta love Rodgers getting pissed at Nelson at the end of his last series when he got sacked and Nelson ran the wrong/a bad route.

Matt Ryan will be just fine, he just needs more weapons. You can bet this won't be the last duel between Ryan and Rodgers.

Until the end of the first half this looked like it was headed towards another nail-biting ending.

The turning point was the INT for a TD at the end of the half. Rodgers following that up with a TD to start the 3rd just made it even harder for a Falcons team build to play ball control football.

Still not feeling all that confident if the NFC championship comes down to needing Crosby to hit a clutch FG.

I dont think any of us could have imaged this outcome the way the season was unfolding as guys dropped like flys. It really speaks to the foundation and depth this team has. They need to get a CBA done so bad to squash any chance of a lockout. Just imagine how good this team should be next year. It will suck massively to miss any games/season because of a lockout.

Now, I agree playing Seattle compared to the Bears would be great. The Bears, for some reason, seem to put a clamp on our offense. They're a good defense. True, the refs did hand them the first win this year, there's no denying that. We were the better team that game.

But they shut us down in week 17 and they present a problem with Peppers and that DL, and Urlacher and Briggs and the LB crew.

I still don't know how the Pats beat them there like 41-10... we should be able to as well then.

That would be the perfect, ideal dream script though wouldn't it? Winning IN CHICAGO to go to the Super Bowl. Perfect.

I want all of us just to stop for a moment and consider this season. No team has ever had as many IR'd starters as us and won more then 6 games. Ever. Period. Fact.

Remember early in the year? Grant going down? Finley? Barnett? Burnett? The trepidation over our secondary that has become as good as any part of this defense?

We've had amazing games this year and some stinkers, but we lost 6 games by a total of 20 points. And now, minus our star RB, star TE, starting MLB, starting OLB, starting SS we are going to be favorites in the NFC Championship Game. (There's no way the oddsmakers or most analysts pick Chicago or Seattle over us after we shellacked the Falcons and beat the Eagles, the trendy NFC pick.)

Aaron Rodgers posted an all-time great postseason performance today. You cannot play the QB position better then he did. We didn't punt the ball once, he was perfect on 3rd down and perfect in the redzone. I repeat. PERFECT. No incompletions, 4 TDs.

When you look at this team. You look at the ages of the players and the ages of our rising stars and the people coming back. Suddenly you start wondering how good this team can become and how the adversity of this year has set us up to have immense success over the next 5+ years and likely be regarded as a top 5 team in the NFL for a while to come.

I think you could easily make the argument that going into next year that team will easily be our best team on paper. Win or lose next week, our future looks bright.

No Packer fan was worried about Rodgers lack of a playoff win. He had only played one playoff game before this year, and he threw for over 400 yards. Rodgers is the first QB in NFL history to throw for 10 tds in his first three playoff games.

By the way, I love how you blame the refs for the absolute shellacking the Packers put on the Falcons. I can't remember another playoff game that was as lopsided as this one was. The Packers just completely dominated the Falcons in every aspect of the game(save for one kickoff return.)

Watching this Bears game..... they just got flagged for pass interference finally.
They get away with a lot of clutching & grabbing..... McCarthy has to make sure the NFL and the refs are well aware of this BEFORE and during the game.

They just now got away with holding #87 on the fade there in the end zone.

Refs can really impact a game. We saw it years ago when the Patriots always mugged the Colts receivers.

The Bears defense is good already. Letting them get away with illegal contact, holds really makes our offense stutter, as it would anyones.
