    The OL needs to ensure AR does not get sacked...keep him on the field, keep the Lions qb on the bench where he belongs. Newhouse better eat an extra bowl of Wheaties tomorrow morning

    The OL is the reason we lost the game last year. They were playing musical positions. That won't happen this year. We will jump out to a quick start, they will "storm back" to down 3, we will answer the call and shut up the noisy crowd, then we will win 48-38.

    Well, you do have a point.


    The more this is discussed it just keeps making me more nervous. I'm going to really need a drink before this game.

    Not a blow out but with a comfortable enough lead to win.

    Speaking of drinking, who really is going to be drinking if we win this game?

    I know I will, been saving me a bottle of medicine all week ;)

    It's Thanksgiving after all.

    This most recent version of the Lions really bugs me. Jim Schwartz is a cocky, arrogant toolbag who can dish it out but can't take it. Suh IS the dirtiest player in the NFL right now and his constant denial of doing anything wrong is comical. Ripping quarterbacks around by their helmet and facemasks isn't dirty I guess. Not to be outdone, Matt Stafford decides to take a guy down by his head and is apparently surprised that the guy retaliated.

    Plus, they all whine to the media about how unfairly they're being treated.

    I want us to knock these guys out and leave no doubt.

    Careful with that Lion Pate, eating the liver of a carnivore is bad for you. Killing carnivores doesn't seem to have any ill effects though.

    Adolescent or not, as rare or as often as it might be, career ending attacks are the act of cowards. I'm surprised at how Lions fans point to their years of poor play as an excuse to arrive on the scene and try to take out opposing players as "flailing" "rare" "unintentional".
    You've probably not been watching football long enough to remember the futility of the 70's and 80's as a Packer fan. Either way, the man who's resorted to "sucker punches" to say he's not just rolling over has already given up. That man has lost his dignity. He's admitted he's not good enough to play on the even field of fair play. I get it, the Lions have an inferiority complex and yes, the rest of the NFL knows this - we're just pointing it out to their fans.
    I'm thankful for the laugh when you write that the Packers might be walking into a buzzsaw this week. Though I doubt a buzzsaw effect I find it interesting to note that while you apologize for your team's adolescent behavior you voice it in your analysis of the game.
    So will Detroit provide the "buzzsaw" or "gut it out" for a win? Time will tell of course but it's obvious you haven't been able to decide as a fan which way you would like to see your team win. At least a "W" is a "W" right Duke?
    Thanks for the decidedly nice comment on our forum, too bad you can't ankle tackle this website hey?

    Well, I'm somewhat worried, because I think Detroit is a dirty team that most likely sees taking Rodgers out as clearing a path for themselves beyond tomorrow. (Yeah, I said it.)

    As long as we get out of there with no significant injuries, I'll be satisfied. (Happier with a win, of course, but I just don't know what to expect...depends on which Packers show up.) If this is their Super Bowl and they win it, fine. I'd rather go to the real thing.

    Darn it. Some of you are starting to make me a tad nervous now about dirty play from the Lions LOL.

    I still think that the Lions would be absolute morons to get too dirty on Thanksgiving with so many watching the game. There will be hell to pay if they dare take cheap shots in this game of all games....and especially at Aaron.

    The Lions need to put on their big boy undies and stop trying to out thug teams.

    With that being said....Good Luck Packers. Get the W and stay healthy.

    There is already a bad taste in Rodgers' mouth from the last thanksgiving game against the Lions and last week.
    Look for the same game we have been playing all year.
    A-Rod has an absolute beast of a game,
    Defense gives up 400+ yards,
    But the defense takes the ball away 2-3 times which is the difference maker.

    Sounds like a cliche, but I think that the outcome of this game will be decided at the line of scrimmage. If the Packer OL can keep the Lions' front 4 off of ARod enough, then expect a huge game from Rodgers. As explosive as the Lions' offense can be, I don't think they'll keep up.

    If they get to Rodgers with enough hurries and hits, Lions will probably get the victory. They're hyped for this game. It's their playoffs looking right at them and they're at home.

    Dare I say it? I've prepared myself for this thing going either way. It wouldn't mean so much if the 9'ers weren't playing the way they are ... however ... all ESPN hype aside, I'm expecting both teams to put their so-called A-game on display today. The most disciplined team (read: no stupid drive killing penalties AND no turnovers -- both no penalties AND no turnovers) will win this thing. I'm not expecting a shoot-out neither. I'd be willing to bet that Green Bay uncorks a running game right at Suh and Fairly. Like the Vikes a few years back, the only way to neutralize a strong up-the-middle run defense is to run right flippin' at it. So... whomever it was who said "If the O-line plays well, we win" -- is correct, I think.

    3 1/2 hours till kick-off. I'm getting rather anxious and nervoud at the same time. IF we should lose this one, I'll be a little disappointed but certainly not down. I'll just have to hope that the 49ers lose another one along the way (Pittsburgh?). I hope more than anything that we come out of this one with no major injuries. All this talk of the Lions dirty tactics makes me a little uneasy. Hoping for a great and entertaining game with the Packers coming out on tope 37-34 with Rodgers leading a lte game drive down field throwing a a game winning TD.

    The beer's on ice and the turkey is in the oven. Hopefully I'll stay sober enough to carve the turkey without losing any fingers in the process!

    There's no reason why either of these teams shouldn't be able to win against the other. However, I give the team with Aaron Rodgers the edge. 31-28 Packers.

    I have a feeling A-Rod is going to make Ford Field his playground (inside a dome away from all the elements), this has the making of the NFC Playoff game last season against the Falcons. All dirty tactics aside, no one expected the Packers to come out on top and Aaron Rodgers completely lit their defense up.

    I'm just disappointed this game didn't get a prime-time slot. 12:30 seems too early on Turkey Day for such an epic match-up.

    My wife is a member of PETA (I know all you hunters "People That Eat Animals"). And normally I would condem the killing of a Lion. But since this Lion is obviously a rouge and is a threat to the health and well being of Packer Nation I say

    DEATH TO THE BEAST!!!!!

    Thought he was reserving that for rushing TD's. Are you saying that Rodgers will rush for 4 TD's?
