    Wow. I see your bulletin board material, and I raise you Shaun O'Hara...

    “I’m not really sure off the top of my head what the reference is, but if there’s no flag, there is no foul,” O’Hara said.

    When told Kampman said he received a blow to the head, O’Hara said: “He must have tripped.”
    Like, OMG! bulletin board material.

    If you need something like this to reassure you the Giants have a shot, that's bad.

    • Im not sure if this is just wrong as a packer fan but, I kinda would prefer to see these 2 teams match up minus the weather element. I think green bays game is pretty strong and im kinda worried about the weather throwing a wrench into there system.
      I mean zero degrees with some wind is just miserable and will certainly dictate the game plan quite a bit. I still think the pack will win, but the way they will have to do it might not allow there strengths to excell.
      This is pound the football weather and its not that green bay cant run the ball well, but there passing game is among the elite teams this year.

        It certainly puts the teams on a more equal playing field. I see where you are coming from. Everyone says this helps Green Bay because they are used to the cold. But they aren't really used to cold like this. Neither team is. And if it forces both teams to run the ball more, that definitely helps the Giants.

          You're forgetting that Brett Favre has dominated the cold weather games he's played in, especially at Lambeau. He's 43-5 at home when it's below 34 degrees. 43-5. .... I'm going to go ahead and say the cold favors a team who's QB is 43-5 in it.

            I realise that the veterans should handle it well, its just that the roster has like 43 guys or so that have only been around a couple years. I do fully understand Favres record though and that is nothing to sneeze at.

              There is a difference between 34 degrees and 0 degrees. No one can handle that weather well (or maybe someone will). =D

                Exactly. 34 degrees is certainly managable. Can you tell me Brett Favre's record when it is below 5 degrees?

                  Can you tell me Eli's record when it's below 34 degrees? Or if he's ever played in a game below 5 degrees?

                    If it's not windy the temperature is really not that big of a factor......I stepped outside today in Green Bay and it was -13, but the wind wasn't blowing so it didn't feel unbearably cold out. The fact that Favre has played in this weather quite a bit more gives him an advantage over Eli

                    • In addition to the Pack being clearly the better team, I think this is a decent matchup for us.

                      The Pack can spread out the Giants and exploit their thin defensive backfield. However, I would keep Grant or Jackson in our backfield as a safety net, otherwise their rush might be a factor to some extent. It was in the last game in spite of the dominating final scoreline, although Favre has gotten more acclimated to releasing the ball quickly with the new spread offense. Plus, their front four is more adept at stopping the pass than the run, so Grant should have some big runs in the spread.

                      Defensively is always the biggest X-Factor with the Packers, because it affects which version of Brett Favre we see. Favre panics and thinks he has to score on every play when they set the tone by struggling early. I still think that's the case in spite of his response to our slow start last week--because that was more induced by the offense. Thankfully, the G-Men aren't exactly an offensive juggernaut (they're alright). Our defensive front four hypothetically couldn't rattle our own quarterback and aren't quite on the level of the Giants pass rushing wise, but our matchup is against Eli and their offensive front, not the Giants D. Eli is not as mobile as Favre and he should get rattled. I wish we still had Johnny, because he'd get some push into Manning's face. We're still solid there and throughout the D.

                      If Blackmon can return, it would be a shot in the arms to our special teams and defensive backfield.

                        • I believe the Packers have the edge in at least 10 of 12 or so positions on the teams. It very well might come down to Favre versus Manning, and I'll take Favre any day, any year over Eli.
                          The pain fades and the good memories will remain.
