    Actually, that sort of means we're favorites. The home team usually always gets -3 or so because of home field advantage.

    thats true but wow thats surprising to be quite honest. I really hope we dont lay an egg after such an emotional win. 7-1 sounds awfully nice

    GB is on a short week.

    KC is coming off a bye week and at home where they play extremely well.

    So it's kind of plausible I suppose.

    i honestly think the key to this game will be who runs the ball better.

    if they run well on us with LJ i think they have a good chance for the win

    Not to mention that Brett's never beaten KC. I was thinking the line would be something like that.

    Whatever. I guess that means we'll win by 5.5 based on the Denver game where we were a 3 point underdog.

    Here is how Kansas City ranks defensively


    PTS
    16.1
    (6th)

    YDS
    305.9
    (11th)

    PASS YDS
    197.1
    (10th)

    RUSH YDS
    108.7
    (17th)


    i think you are going to see mccarthy try to mix things up but the pack is going to try to pound the rock early b/c they have a decent pass defense, but than again so did denver and favre schredded that soooooo........

    I think KC is the only one he hasn't beaten. And while he hasn't won AT Dallas, he has beaten the Cowboys at Lambeau.

    Only KC, they beat Indy at Lambeau in 2000 in the snow. It was one of the 4 straight games that they won to finish Sherman's first season.
    ( if memory serves me correctly )

    I hope Brett gets the win over KC, because I read that the 'Skins win means Brady has beaten everybody now.

    If that is the case.... This is cool. This could be a rallying call for the Pack on a short week.

    I love this underdog role. We will be the underdog all year. No one will shut up about the running game statistic, so I am really looking forward to Grant showing the nation that we have one! We shall see!

    Manning actualy beat him to it this same week, it's pretty crazy how 3 QB's get to beat all the teams in two weeks of eachother.

    I stand corrected. I went to the Panthers game in Charlotte, the famous Brad Hoover game on MNF. The guy that jumped out of the stands, got into the play at the goal line, then sprinted the length of the field was sitting 3 rows in front of me.
    I wish I could see a replay of Favre's second TD pass of that game, it was a 50 yard laser to the middle of the endzone. The ball was never more that 15 feet off the ground.

    Hey....I like, in fact I prefer, that these Packers are considered underdogs. Do it all year and keep that fire burning hot. These guys have professional egos, and certainly want to prove all the "experts" wrong.
