James Jones would start, Martin would take the slot then.
This is what the milwaukee journal says would happen: http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=658771
Rookie James Jones would replace Jennings and Ruvell Martin would move up to No. 3. Jones said the coaches were confident he could play split end as well as flanker
So, you are correct GB12. If the journal is correct.
I understand that, but if this was a neutral field I'd easily give the Iggles 10 points.
I have to admit I expected the eagles to be favored by 6 or 7 and posted that about 5 weeks ago. I thought it should be by more though. That said I do believe the packers can win this game. Its a new year and im not exactly sure what the packers are going to bring to the table. The running game is what really scares me though.

"Not to the best of my knowledge, though its possible somewhere in vegas. I say right now the line will be something like eagles by 7. I think the eagles will win by more than that. Reid and the eagles simply have owned the pack lately and the packs offense wont be able to keep up with them. Theres just nothing there but Favre and Driver. Jennings our runningbacks and tight end are a huge question mark and the season hinges on how quickly they come around. The eagles offense isnt pretty either but they always seem to get points on the board. The defenses should be about equal.
If the packers manage to take this game I think it will be absolutely huge for them even if its only the first game of the year. McCarthy is going to want to stop the trend of losing to this team, its a conference game and its going to be important to get back to winning at home. After looking through there schedule I have that game marked down as one of there losses despite its importance.
I just noticed Chicago starts off there season against San Diego, that should be interesting and a big (L) for da bears if San Diego gets their coaching situation under control. Detroit plays Oakland, that should be a real stinker and Minnesota plays Atlanta. Looks like theres a good posibility that Detroit will be in first place after the first game of the year. lol
Although Atlanta is a mess do to Vicks incredible stupidity and I can see Minnesota beating them. Minnesota and Detroit could be playing each other for first place in the second week. Yes, thats right 1 of those 2 teams will have a real good shot at starting the season 2-0. Heh, but they should begin to crumble after that.
The first 3 games for the pack and da bears will be no cake walks. I could almost see an 0-3 start for both teams, but I think I have to give the pack and bears more respect than that."
Is Justin Harrell really doing that poorly? I'm surprised to see him inactive.
It's a combination of him not perfoming his best yet and our surplus of DTs. At this point Pickett, Jolly, Williams, and Cole are ahead of him. you can only keep 45 active so you can't overload that much at one position. We also have Jenkins who slides in to DT on passing downs.
