    13, some teams have played 8 games while others have played 7. That's why stats per game are the correct measure. For example, certainly a team having played only 7 games is likely to have surrendered fewer total points than the Packers who have played 8, even if their per game D is worse.

    My initial point was I didn’t understand longtimefan’s post. Beyond that as soon as bye weeks begin for teams and until they’re over (so all teams have played the same number of games) IMO stats relating to season totals are irrelevant. But if your point is even the total stats don’t explain longtimefan’s post, I agree.

    My prediction for the game is Arizona won't be able to score more than their average of 17 points per game and that won't be enough for them to win. I really don't care about the margin of victory as long as the Packers win. And, as always, hoping no significant injuries occur.

    I think it's the 208 points vs 170 we see the Pack has given up

    And yes Jack I'm not so worried about our defense, it's the offense that concerns me

    All the way to Ashland?! Wow I'm glad that was before I was born. Luckily most of the bars in Superior have Sunday Ticket so I can just drive there and watch it.

    Well, pretty satisfying game despite all the injuries and the fact that it should have been a blowout. The Packers were in control the entire game, and the defense played fairly well. And there's actually a running game now. Not a bad way to go into the bye.

    ^ I don't beleive this was a emergence of the running game....this was a VERY crappy cardinals run defense....they made our medicore backs look good.

    Green did a good job of ball protection. Starks fumbled but what a heads up play by Rodgers to jump on it

    We gashed them pretty hard today and I totally agree that part of it was because their run D is baaaaad. But I also think some of the credit has to go to MM's play calling. Finally a good rotation of Starks Green and Cobb. The combo we saw yesterday with Cobb taking 3-5 handoffs and 7-10 snaps in the back field and then Starks being used more between the tackles and green in the screens and outside runs really worked out. Was glad to see us stop forcing Alex Green to take more of the load than he is capable of.

    That is true. Agree with ya.

    Green seems to be more at home when he runs way outside or he is set up with a screen pass. He did well on the screens he caught.
