    Packers-Giants Week 2 Discussion

    allright, it's time.

    I'm already excited for the next weekend of football, so it's time to start talking about it.

    Really, after a game last week where every possible bounce went the Packer's way, they get to play the Giants without Eli Manning, Brandon Jacobs or that tool DE that Giants fans have such a boner for. I'm not trying to sound over confident....but, I am saying that IF the Packers do win on sunday, they will have fallen bass ackwards into a 2-0 start.

    also, really, Jared Lorenzen? The Hefty Lefty? The Round Mound of Touchdown? The Chunky from Kentucky? The Pillsbury Throwboy? The giant Giant? The Fat Former Wildcat? can't wait to watch his fat ass.

    I dont understand your comments about Wynn, you must really hate him. The O-line is not opeing up many holes but Wynn still manages to make the most of it when he has the opportunity. Hes far way better than Jackson as an open field runner and makes things happen. Like ive said earlier during trainning camp, he could be the wild card of the packers draft.

    Like Brett said, 2-0 a lot better than 0-2. Next week will be a very interesting game with the Chargers. They looked absolutely terrible against the Pats. Randy Moss made me shake my head again that he's not a Packer, but I still think GB will be able to throw on the Chargers. I also don't think the Patriots defense is that much better than the Packers defense. Now, the Chargers could change up a lot of things and might come out and toss up 40+ points, but I loved seeing Brett be patient, avoid individual rushers (like when he pump faked the safety off his feet and tossed the TD to Lee) and take what the defense gave. I loved the game plan implementation in the second half. AND the special teams is a whole lot better than last year. I wasn't sure about Tramon Williams, but he's not the #2 returner in the NFC.

    Great team effort and sets the stage for the clash with the Bolts. GO PACK!

    Quarterback: A+++++++++++++++++++++++
    Brett Favre led the team to victory today. He had great poise avoiding sacks and took advantage of some really good protection. The interception came on a pass that Donald Driver couldn't handle, so you really can't fault him there. Hopefully Brett can put up more performances like these.

    The Backfield: C
    Deshawn Wynn had two great TDs. He seems like a good fit for this system. Korey Hall caught two big first down passes. Ryan Grant had a very good screen pass that went 21 yards. Only Jackson didn't play well. He needs to learn to cut and GO, which Wynn does. I'm not giving up on him yet, but 17 carries for 35 isn't gonna cut it.

    Wide Receivers: B
    Donald Driver made some very nice plays, eluding would be tacklers and playing well in space, especially on his TD reception. Jones had a great 46 yard grab for totals of 4 recs and 75 yards. We got no

    Tight Ends: A+
    Donald Lee and Bubba Franks each had 4 catches and a TD, gaining 35 and 20 yards, respectively. Brett needs some big targets in the redzone, and these two came up big today

    Offensive Line: B-
    The line did a very good job protecting Favre today. Clifton handled Umenyiora very well, as did Tauscher on Strahan. These are the Ts we're used to seeing. College had a few bad plays, most notably completely missing on Umenyiora on a zone run to the left. Once again, the line struggled to open up running lanes after a fast start.


    Defense later.
    Fixed it for you

    i loved wynn today but lets not get carried away here, take away the TD at the end and he has 9 carries for 12 yards. Yeah, Wynn did cut and go but too many times he just went and ran into the back of an o-lineman for a short loss. Also didnt help the couple times a Giants DL was unblocked and took him down for a loss.

    Again i think Wynn played great and hope he's still a little rusty and will clean up his running a bit, wait for the lineman to get their blocks and cut behind them instead of running into them, but in the open field on the runs today and some catches both weeks so far he's looked great, but i think he's a good 3rd down back for us this year and have an increased role, but i think Jackson still played decent and should continue to get the bulk of the carries.

    Yeah, the dline rotation has helped again.

    Great game by the Packers. Really impressed by the performances of some of the people in the supposed weak spots of the Packers. More specificaly Atari Bigby, Deshawn Wynn, James Jones, both TE's, and whoever was covering Jeremy Shockey.
