    The Packers had a bad lose at home last week and they need to rebound against the struggling Rams. I have a feeling the Packers are going to rebound nicely against the Rams and pull of the W!

    Pack wins but O-Line is still not solved.

    24-21

    O-Line won't be a quick fix. When one guy goes out and 3 people have to shift positions to compensate, it's not an easy fix. Best thing we can do is come up with a plan to counter the blitz with some short, quick passes, some screens and a better run game. Get them to back off a bit.

    We're going to have to work extra hard to stop Stephen Jackson. With the way Cedric Benson ran all over us last week, I'm sure Jackson is salivating at the mouth. Plus I just read Raji tweaked his ankle in practice yesterday, so my guess is he's out.

    All in all I expect the Rams to put up a tough fight. They're desperate for a win and they know we're beaten down and lacking confidence so I wouldn't be surprised to see them come out swinging. The bright side for us is we're going to play pissed off- and we need to. There was no excuse for last week's nonsense, so our guys need to have some animosity when they play.

    As long as they play great D (tackle way better, rush the passer better), very good ST, and our offense game plan is adjusted to the lack of OL quality, and we win, then it's a good game. Then we will be able to win against MN. We cannot repeat the same mistakes we made last year, and last game.

    We need to go out and play hard-nosed, smash mouth football on Sunday. The D HAS to be up for it, especially when trying to stop Jackson. I think if the pass rush is going strong, then we could cause a fair amount of turnovers on Sunday, and hopefully use them to our advantage.

    The O-Line needs to step up. They need to take charge, and put last Sunday out of their minds. If they get SOME sort of decent protection, then A-Rod should have time to get some decent passes off. The running attack too needs to step up and take charge, and fight for every damn yard. It's a game of inches, so lets make sure we take our chances.

    Hey JENNINGS, DRIVER and NELSON!!! Quit dropping passes for 15 yard completions and that will help a long way toward a win!

    Thanks - The Fanagement

    The game will be about this. The defense has to play well and shut down the run. It's always about shutting down the run. The offense has to stop dropping passes. That's a focus thing and it's a thing that has always bothered me about Mike McCarthy's teams. The special teams have to control field position and we have to win the battle of the clock.

    I don't think Mike's teams have a strong history of practicing hard. I think they practice details but in games, when they get tired, their brains shut down. I believe you will always play just like you practice. I think Mike needs to be tougher on them during the week so that they're ready on game day. The first series today will be telling. You will be able to tell right away whether they're ready to play or not.

    Ted Thompson better be watching the waiver wires or he may have to make a trade. The offensive line is indeed offensive to me.

    The ref completely miffed on the guy holding Kampman. It was an obvious hold. How do you miss that? If these amateur refs can't handle the job then the NFL needs to go to full time refs.

    I'm watching it via sopcast. You need to download the app, quality isn't great, but it works.

    How about Johnny Jolly? If he keeps playing like this, he'll make himself a good deal of money.

    Rodgers isn't going to survive the season at this rate.

    Where the hell is the tight end in this offense? Rogers needs to get rid of the ball quicker. He sucks so far today.

    Rodgers is holding onto the ball for too long in my opinion, given 2 sacks to this D already!

    Good to see the Packers causing some turnovers. But the Rams should get this 2nd one back.

    can't believe they didn't challenge forward progress. Great for us. But we need a TD on this drive.
