    I think the D will pick up a ton with Clay back in the lineup. Im not as worried as it seems the media is.

    When Capers dialed up the exotic looks, the D, even without Clay AND Jenkins, brought a lot of heat towards Manning, a guy that usually doesn't get pressured. I was really worried, until I saw that.

    We don't have the players to win one-on-ones, we can't play like the Titans did in 08, rushing the same 4 and dropping the rest, but, with a decent scheme, this D can be a force.

    I hope the players aren't believing all of the hype surrounding the Packers. They should know the preseason means nothing (except staying healthy) after last year.

    Yeah. I am not that worried either. Once the defense settled down in the Colts game, it became very hard for even the Manning led Colts to drive the ball. I think the Packers will be fine on defense. It also helps when the offense has the ability to score 30 points a game.

    One thing that I also took notice. Matt Flynn, playing with the ones, against the Colts' ones, was excellent. Sure, he clearly lacks the arm strenght. But he already has the command of the huddle and of the offense. You can see his poise.

    Not worried about the backup QB. Could go as far to say that, as long as the D holds, we can absolutely stay alive for a 5 game period with Flynn...

    I mentioned to my friend during the game that I had never seen Manning moving around that much back there trying to avoid the sacks.

    I want 7 sacks on Favre at Lambeau.

    I agree, as long as were not in the playoffs we should be okay with him under center.

    The other possession ended on downs when Rodgers' feeble sneak on fourth and 1 went nowhere against the Colts.
    -------------------------------------------------------
    Rodgers is great at rushing.
    I don't understand why they didn't have him rush the ball.
    Or at least go back as if he's going to pass and then move forward.
    Do you think that play would work?

    On Madden with the auto-run disabled, it works every time, 5 wide set, and run the QB.

    On real life, a lot could happen. I like the idea, but it's not as easy...

    It's not just the media. I'm worried too.
    We had Clay last year down the stretch and Pittsburgh and Arizona still torched us. I don't see any improvement at the other OLB spot, and I see no upgrades at CB.
    People expect Capers to work magic like David Copperfield I think. I was worried last year, and we got killed because of it.

    I have to see improvement to buy it, not just smell the coffee.
