The Packers are on the road to the New York Jets this week.
The Jets are arguably one of the top teams not just in the AFC, but in the NFL. They've been impressive in their 5 wins and are coming off a bye week.
Here are some of my thoughts about the game:
Aaron Rodgers throwing passes to phantom WR's. I know the WR's took the blame for those, someone missed a route, there was miscommunication, what ever. I totally get 1 or maybe 2 where there was a lack of green and gold jerseys, but how many times in Sunday's game vs the Vikes did you look across the room at someone and say, "WTH was that!?". If we have any chance of beating the Jets, he can't throw up random balls for Cromartie or Revis to come up with.
Packer's health. We have been seriously depleted in our depth charts. Thank Lombardi we did pick up a few players this week. But who would have guessed that rookie Frankie Zombo would now have a back-up? I'm waiting to hear the status of Harris and Bigby. It would be great if either would be activated for this week.
LaDainian Tomlinson. He's having one of those, I'll show the team that cut me, years. And you know we don't have a whole lot of success preventing great RB's. I think watching a RB break one on us is when I do the majority of my cursing.
Rodgers needs protection and needs to be very accurate.
Clay Matthews needs a good game, he's due for a 3 sack day!
Control the turnover ratio. We need to press Sanchez, cause him to toss one or two up.
Play smart. Watch the penalties. We can't afford to give up any yards in NY.
I think the Packers, though still unbalanced in the run game, have a chance on Sunday. But they need to take control early in the game and play a full 60 minutes. I look for Woodson to get a pick 6 and for Jennings to have a few long ball TD's.
I'm picking the Packers 28 Jets 21
Note: You should probably know that I am a total homer. I never pick against the Packers, I just have different reasons why they will win.
