Hello everyone, welcome to the live blog of the Packers-Lions game at Lambeau Field.
No, today I think you'll see Trevor Davis playing quite a bit today. I don't know about Montgomery, but they're going to get Davis' speed on the field and see if they can make use of it. I also think they're going to run the ball a lot.
These guys aren't used to losing and being criticized. They are really sensitive to criticism and I think Rodgers' response was a symptom of that. I personally didn't have any problem with his comments. It's not easy to have to deal with us day after day. But these guys have it good compared to some media markets.
This is the first time he's missed a game since 2013 when he injured his thumb. He had some hamstring problems early in his career and has had them from time to time. The hamstring injury has been this year's ailment of choice. Sometimes they just go in cycles. There's been a bunch of guys out with hamstring injuries. On the other hand, they haven't had any really serious injuries.
I'm a glass half empty guy, so you're probably asking the wrong person. I think the Packers have enough talent to win today. The Lions are missing some key people on defense, too, but unless the Packers' offense wakes up, Detroit will win this game.
Julius Peppers for Matthews. Micah Hyde for Burnett. Kenny Clark for Guion. Noah Lowry for Jones. Quinten Rollins for Shields.
It's overcast, but the sun is peeking out and it's not supposed to rain until after 3 p.m. So everything should be fine weather-wise.
I have no idea. If I knew that I'd bet a ton of money on the game and then go retire.
I'm not sure it's not being on the same page. I think McCarthy has had some blips with taking too much time to get the play in and with personnel groupings. I don't think it will last all season. I'm not sure what the issue is internally, but I suspect it' something they'll figure out.
Pass rush is the key, not secondary talent. They have to get after Stafford and hit him a few more times than they did Bradford, or at least in more timely situations. Their rush has been good and it needs to show up today.
It's blowing pretty hard to the north. I'll give you weather when they pass it on.
Absolutely not. They run lots of isolation routes, but they're mostly trying to set up one route with another. Anytime they have multiple receivers to one side, they're attacking a certain coverage with varied routes designed to make the defense vulnerable.
Probably not a lot. He's still learning how to survive in the NFL. It may click in for him at some point like it seemed to for Kenny Clark last week, but it's really hard being a rookie defensive lineman. Most struggle a lot.
I don't know what we'll see, but they need to force Rodgers into throwing on rhythm. Call more three-step drops, run some stack formations and more than anything, run the ball. Make the play-action viable by establishing Lacy.
Yes, check our website. They're listed there.
Not at all. Shoot, they just added a 53rd play this week. They went with 52 against Minnesota.
