Week 11: Packers @ Lions
 
This game worries me.
A Win and everything looks great for us.
A Loss and it's all muddied & cloudy.....

Green Bay has recently dominated this matchup.

However, 2 "trends" point towards Detroit in this one.

#1- 2010..... the Packers have been ravaged by injuries just like the 2010 season. That 2010 season, mind you, had the Packers losing in Detroit.
And it seems like we are swimming upstream, whether it's with all the injuries like 2010, to battling the refs, etc.

#2- This point spread seems suspiciously low, baiting the betting public to put their money on the Packers -3. That means Vegas loses if the Packers cover, and Vegas doesn't like to lose, and they usually win.

Playoff race.
If the Packers win, we go to 7-3 and almost for sure are in at least as a wildcard, but also a great chance at winning the division because we will technically move into 1st place if the Bears lose at San Fran Monday night.

The Lions seem dead at the moment, after limpdicking in Minnesota to lose to the Vikings for the 2nd time this season. However, a win over the Packers and the Lions would be 5-5, just 1 game behind both current wildcard teams.... would be the Seahawks and the Packers at 6-4.

Tampa Bay also would be 6-4 if they beat Carolina tomorrow.
Dallas & New Orleans probably will also go to 5-5 tomorrow as well.

A Lions loss, and they're obviously done and looking ahead to the Draft. But again, the 2 trends above make me think the Lions have a good chance of winning, especially with the Packers missing both Woodson & Shields back there.... Megatron might dominate this game.... with no Matthews or Nick Perry off the edge, we have scrubs at OLB and are missing 2 starting ILBs.... Stafford should have a field day. Bet the over.

somehow we gotta put pressure on Stafford

BloodBrother 11-18-2012 02:10 PM

So far, as expected, they aren't getting much of any pressure or push up front

and they are once again starting out slowly on offense. Nearly halftime and they only have 7 freakin points against this Lions D

fitting end to that half. Crosby misses the FG ****** TWICE. Cut this dude already

horrible half by the Packers, playing down to their competition again.

BloodBrother 11-18-2012 03:52 PM

Crosby has to go. The guy is done


and what a pathetic showing by this offense vs a bad D. They picked a weird week to try and pretend they are a running team. 23 pass attempts vs that pass D isn't gonna cut it

Wooo Birthday win!

BloodBrother 11-18-2012 04:19 PM

Man, thank god they pulled that out. Game ball to the defense. They stepped up big time today to bail out Crosby and the offense

It was a sloppy performance from the offense for the most part but a win is a win. Phew

Can't play like that next week @ NYG, though. Now, Go Niners!

Didn't see the second half but based on the first half I think the fact that EDS, Saturday, and Sitton were getting abused by Fairley and Suh might have had something to do with the low attempts.

As for Crosby, when he got bailed out by Schwartz I was thinking maybe this will be the turning point and he'll get back on track. So much for that.

TimmG6376 11-18-2012 05:25 PM

I thought Moses played well. Again this is based on first half only.

PackerLegend 11-18-2012 06:30 PM

Crosby ******* sucks. D played great made huge plays. O sucked again... but after a bye that's usual.

CheeseKnuckles 11-18-2012 06:30 PM

I can't handle watching the poor peformance from this offense anymore. MM needs to start making some adjustments... Everything is so predictable and 4th and 4 we throw for 20 yards? I'm so sick of seeing plays like this!

I was surprised we managed to tally 5 sacks yesterday.
