    in my opinion this is the most key matchup of this game, if Clifton can contain the up and coming d-end, the pack should hanlde business.

    what are your kep matchups of this game

    Poppinga vs. Gonzalezs. TEs have been killing us all year and TG is one of the best.

    Tony G will get his yardage. That's for sure. If the Pack can contain LJ like they did LT then I think we'll be ok. San Diego would've slaughtered us if LT was allowed to get loose all day long. Our Defense contained him and now they need to stop LJ. I think they have the ability to do so.

    I suspect TG will murder us in the 1st half, MM will make the adjustments and we'll shut them down in 2nd.

    My money says Bigby is the guy who is dedicated to Gonzales.

    Should be a good game. Two strong defenses butting heads.

    We match up well against their power run, and their secondary is the weak link in the defensive scheme.

    I will take our QB to be the difference maker.

    The key is how well our offense does with the silent count in that loud-*** stadium. If we limit the stupid penalties, we should be OK.

    Not false starts killing our drives, guys!!

    I agree that Bigby will be more involved in TE coverage than Brady, and that shouuld help. However, Gonzales will still get his catches and yards. We just need to limit the big plays.

    I think the real 2 keys will be our offensive line vs. the Chiefs DL, and the ability of our defense to contain Johnson. If these 2 things happen, it should be a win.

    Several different players will guard Gonzalez at different times, and he may still get a bunch of catches, just like Antonio Gates did. Although at this point in his career, Gonzalez is not as good as Gates.

    I agree with Brennan that Clifton vs. Allen is the most crucial individual matchup of this game. If Clifton can handle him like he handled Shawne Merriman, the Pack should win this game.

    Clifton is damn near bulletproof in pass protection. I look for him to negate Allen on passing downs.

    the Roseville BWW shows all the Packers games and the beer is cheap there, which is a plus.

    Might actually be good Cliff had a bit of a rough game Monday cause I'm predicting he comes back more focused and stops JA in his tracks. Hopefully we can get something out of the run game which may help Cliff the most if the Ends have to respect the run instead of pinning their ears back
