Hi everyone, welcome to the JSOnline and PackersNews.com live blog of the Packers-Colts game at Lambeau Field.
Unreal. That Stafford is a great 4th quarter comeback guy.
I haven't seen him really try to cut hard, but they wouldn't play him if he were having any issues. On the other hand, we all know how sensitive those hamstrings are.
I think they stick with the spread offense and see if they can move the ball gradually, just like they have been. I think Montgomery will be involved a lot to start and they'll go from there. I expect Rodgers to do some scrambling against man coverage unless the Colts spy him.
Some do, some don't. But they play the odds. They try not to give up big plays and keep the ball in the middle of the field so the clock keeps running. As we all know, this is an offensive league and push come to shove, offense is going to win out most times.
I really thought he was going to play this week. He must not be making a lot of progress on it. They want it to be completely healed I'm sure so that it doesn't become a lingering thing. They've gotten real careful with hamstrings given how they can linger if not taken care of completely.
About the same as last week. I don't see any difference in how they spread things around on defense.
As far as I know, there won't be any. But you never know what those pesky Russians might do.
I have not been able to confirm that. If it's true, it means James Starks is going to be out longer than they anticipated. He must have had a setback in practice last week.
Beautiful. I can't recall many 60 degree days in Wisconsin on Nov. 6.
I agree. But the Falcons went to man coverage with both safeties back and you have to at least try to run them out of it. I see his strategy. Atlanta was going to break out offensively and with a lead he had a chance to eat some clock. On the other hand, you have to know your personnel. Davis and Jackson weren't getting it done.
The same in personnel, but not the same offense. This one will use a steady diet of WRs in the backfield and ty to spread teams out.
Cobb is good to go, but I doubt they're going to run him to death. I'm sure Janis and Trevor Davis are going to get some snaps today.
He's a big guy who can run a little. A former WR. He needs a lot of work on blocking. But he looks impressive. I can see why they're taking some time to see if he can become a TE.
Two ways you can look at that. They do need to get to Luck, but Indianapolis' line is such a mess this isn't the worst game for the Packers not to have Matthews.
