    Newhouse was Clifton's replacement and he gave up 11.5 sacks in 13 games, far and away the most of any Packer OL. Getting back Clifton is major.

    Newhouse did play very well against Julius Peppers week 16 however, which was nice to see. Allowed him no sacks.

    You may be right but I realize that we've talked this subject to death and there's not really anything else to be gained by discussion so time to revert to confidence in our team and some friendly smack talk amongst rivals.

    Very interesting. I was wondering about this myself. I mean Marhsall Newhouse has been put in the most difficult position imaginable for a young and inexperienced LT because he's had to go against the likes of Jared Allen twice, Julius Peppers twice, not to mention Hali and JPP. We're talking the best pass rushers in the NFL. That's a real trial by fire. It could be that his last performance against Peppers was an indication of how much he improved. I don't remember how well he did against the Lions in the last game, but Flynn was not pressured that much so he must have done a decent job.

    A real dilemma this one.

    i am a giants fan, but if i put my self in a packers fans' shoes, the one thing i would be concerned with the most would be that pass rush. the giants d-line is just relentless, and to chip a te here and there just means less to cover in the secondary. and in at close second is that if jacobs gets a lot of carries, he can really wear on a defense.

    as a giants fan, the worst thing i can think of is letting the packers get more than a possession ahead. to play from behind means lots of passing, and that means an increased chance of ints. which the packers are very good at. we all know the stats for the packers once they force a turnover. i think the giants can play with the packers, but not if they give the ball up. basically the giants need a perfect game to win this. tds, not field goals. no ints. win turnover battle. control line on both sides of the ball. lead with jacobs, finish with bradshaw. keep running and keep rodgas off the field.

    Andrew, is that you? Stop blogging and start rehabbing your knee. You have a long road ahead to play for the Pack again...

    Yes, as long as Kuhn is there to assist him, Newhouse does very well...

    If I'm holding the playsheet, I come out and try to establish the run early, and I have a bunch of three-step stuff in the passing game scripted in off of that.

    Defensively, I don't think Manning handles pressure well, so I'm attacking him early and often from every direction.

    Newhouse did play well towards the end, but also Peppers went into his 'don't give a ****' mode of play. What an a$s-hat. Contrast that with Allen who nearly set the sack record for the pathetic Vikings.

    Anywho, I think we are seeing the last of Cliffy. With a full off-season, Newhouse can be every bit as effective and far more reliable than Clifton can be expected to be. Clifton gives us very little in the way of run blocking, so that should be interesting to see what our run game can become.

    Jeez how is Jimmy Graham (Saints #80 in that middle GIF) still even able to walk after that hit?
    Jeez.... must be nice to be 24 years old.

    I think New gave up 3 sacks vs KC...if true thats 8.5 in 12 games, not good, but less then .5 per game

    I think you even blitz Woodson or even Burnett once in a blue moon. I really think Clay is going to have a big game tomorrow. He gave Eli fits in New York and I anticipate the same in Lambeau.

    I'm nervous. Confident but nervous.

    This game is starting to feel like a title game or Super Bowl to me now. The pressure seems that on. I honestly kinda think this is the toughest game the Packers can play this postseason. Yes tougher then the Niners. Or Saints. Or Pats or Ravens. This feels tough.

    Green Bay has to bring it's A game and hope for some Lady Luck if they mess up at times.

    The Packers just need to go out and play. Forget about the talk all week, don't worry about next week. Worry about 60 minutes against the Giants. Don't worry about what happened in 2008 since more than half of the current squad wasn't even on the team when that happened. I don't think they'll be nervous. They have already won the most nerve wracking game of them all last February. The last time I saw an angry and determined Packers team was against the Raiders where they just obliterated them by halftime. I expect to see a rested but irritable and irritated determined Packers team in about 11 1/2 hours.

    The defense period. I fear we won't get a pass rush, which will lead to long gainers like we have seen all season. We need to pressure Manning. That's the key to me.

    MY ANSWER was their great WRs.
    I win so far.

    Factor our HORRIBLE safety PEPRAH and no pass rush, and that's why you worry about HAKEEM NICKS and VICTOR CRUZ.

    It's sickening.
    I thought it was all Favre before.
    I stand corrected.
