    Yeah very good read, Hopefully we get Al and Bigby back and Cullen and Pick can play.. Nice to see we may eventually have unbelievable depth all around though!

    Great read.

    Trgovac is the unsung hero of the position coaches. Thought that way last year, with the improvement in the run D, and with the personel he had (Jolly and Pickett were average to bad DTs in the 4-3), but the DL lacked explosion to collapse the pocket.

    This season, we're seeing these guys really pressure the QB. Of course, much of that is CM3 (we saw when he wasn't active what happened), but the DL may be the best unit on a D that has CM3, Nick Collins and Charles Woodson...

    As far as I know you can only have 45 men active from your 53 man roster for games, but I am not sure. As for the D, they are hanging tough. That defense gives superhuman efforts every game even though they are banged up or short on players. The Packer Offensive players better be buying all kinds of dinners and stuff for those guys because they have kept us in every game this year. Its very impressive.

    Correct on the 45.

    And completely agree on the D. The O should be embarassed of themselves.

    Good article, great post.

    My favorite line: Favre had never been sacked by his former team until Wynn pulled him down with 1 minute 19 seconds left in the game.

    Yeah, the O has to step it up for sure. Longer drives late in the game would make a huge difference. Otherwise some back to back scoring drives after the defense forced some punts is always good.

    Yea having our veteran players back for the Jets game is crucial, with them we have a much better chance to force turnovers and just play better all around on D (more chemistry and experience). Im excited to see them all in action if all goes well, should be a great game I think our offense is gonna end up being what makes or breaks us. Hopefully ARod shows up and comes up big on Sunday.

    The more I see of C.J. Wilson on the field, the more I like the guy! He's gonna be a hell of a player for us. Mark my words.
