    Down down year for the Pack in the takeaway dept. For those of us who have really followed the team we all know that takeaways came in bunches. Even if the defense sucked..which is the case this year minus the takeaways. I have been down on Tramon Williams for some time but i'll give him props as his diving ints were impressive...both of them:cautious: Sam Shileds just has so much speed and acceleration i'm like how the heck did he catch up to that ball? If he stopped peeking so much he would never ever get beat. That's the only knock on him. Those takeaways were huge for us this week and last and i hope the guys build on that..the entire defense. BTW more Lattimore and less Jones ok i'm done.

    Hope for yes, but the Steelers take care of the ball pretty well so I don’t expect turnovers.

    Here are the Packers TO stats for the last four regular seasons according to nfl.com:


    Year INTs/Rank. FF/Rank... Rec/Rank TOTAL
    2010: 24/2ND... 15/T 12TH. 8/24TH... 32
    2011: 31/1ST... 13/T 16TH. 7/T 26TH. 38
    2012: 18/T 8TH. 8/31ST.... 5/T 28TH. 23
    2013: 9/T 27TH. 13/T 9TH.. 9/T 14TH. 18


    The Packers are on pace for 10 INTs, 15 Forced Fumbles, and 10 Recovered fumbles for a total of 20 TOs over a 16 game season. INTs are way down and that's at partially due to a bunch of drops. Recovered fumbles are up.
