Hello everyone, welcome to the JSOnline and PackersNews.com live blog of the Packers-Titans game from Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
Another beautiful day for football.
I think he's 100% healthy but I don't think he's 100% back to form.
I think Montgomery is the focus. Watch for him to be extremely involved in every facet of the offense. I think they're going to emphasize him a ton today. Starks will be a complement.
I don't think you'll see as many 5 WR sets as 4 WR sets with Montgomery in the backfield. Then they can decide based on personnel whether to go 5 or stick with 4.
He was doubtful, so not close at all this week. Probably next week.
Absolutely not. You're going to give up on your best defensive player because he missed four games? You don't want him around if the Packers go to the playoffs.
It's going to be a challenge. None of their replacements are near as good as Matthews.
Yes, pretty big collection of them as usual. Any warm weather site, they're here. Lost in the upper deck.
Four of eight games. Should they have cut Rodgers when he hurt his shoulder. How about Sam Shields? Damarious Randall. Matthews hadn't missed a game over the previous two years.
Nothing's a must win unless you're on the brink of elimination. I wouldn't say that's the case the way the NFC North is goingg.
He's got a hamstring pull, no different than Corey Linsley. They're trying to be safe and make sure it doesn't turn into a two-month injury. He's had trouble with that hamstring in the past and it's something he has to deal with. I'm not medically qualified to say why it pops up from time to time.
Professionals don't need a lot of motivation. If you've got a good job you like, what keeps you going in to the office or the plant or the construction site day after day. The money's good, that's for sure. That's motivation, not to lose your job. There's competition for your job every day. You don't need a lot of external noise in the pros.
They have the option of doing it. Some do, some don't. Depends on the individual. It's never been mandatory.
It's going to probably have to come up the middle. Their tackles are both first-round picks and pretty solid. The inside guys are maulers and there may be some sacks to be had there.
