Glad that Grant supports the idea. GB looked good, I'm just glad they didn't have a let down against the Browns. It was the Browns, but they came out with intensity and played with consistency. That is what you want to see out of your team, good win all around, now let's bring on the Vikes!!!! This is the biggest game yet, no turnovers and we win.

Defense played well again and I think Rodgers didn't get sacked, so that was good. Apparently Lang had a good game, but we'll see how he holds up next week against Allen. Having Bigby back is helping the defense; two good games in a row. We beat the Vikes next week and the race in back on in the Central. Bears not looking good against the Bengals.

i love this move signing Green.A great 1 2 punch! AR didnt get sacked. lang had a very nice game and more important Clifton got the week off and the game off and he could take this week off and play Sunday and if hes still sore,Lang could play and im sure the Packers will run away from Allen,but,im confident Lang will do fine,he does have short arms for a LT but,good athletism,Power, footwork and a decent textbook Tackle so we wil see what happens and a few BF T.O. today turned into 14 Pitts pts,so maybe hes turning abit from playing almost perfect ball the first 6 games.Maybe this is the start of his play where he will take some chances.although Pitts is the first test Minn had against a playoff team on the road and one of the better defenses in the game,so again we will see what happens.

I'm sure Bears fans are extremely disappointed, I'm just glad we didn't have a let down like that, just shows who is improving and who is not. It sure was nice to see Havner have a game like he did, I just hope Finely isn't hurt too bad. I think I want a Havner jersey!!!! He is the kind of player I respect.

Yea,its not a happy day in Chicago for sure! You are right Harner is a good player,versatile.
At this point its in the Packers hands,a win over Minn and they are basically tied assuming we win during Minn bye week,if the Packers lose,then they are 2 or 3 back and will have to wait and see if the Vikes go through a losing streak,or if BF collapses like he did last year with his arm or shoulder injury,so if the Packers can win 6 of the last 8 and finish 11-5 and get a W.C. so it will be fun to say the least!

I see Eric is at the Favre thing again. 345 yards ,1 int 1 fumble are not that bad of stats. And the int was a tipped ball as he would point if it were Rodgers or it was the pass rush not the Qb's fault on the fumble. And thats all you seem to look at for Rodgers. Look at things the same way for both. And please just get over it get over it.I am done trying to get it through to him again GOOD BYE

Point was he was playing perfect ball for games and then he has stretches of throwing and having a few bad games and we have seen it as Packer fans and maybe its the beginning of his yearly streak,,stop being so offended over the opposition and caring so much over a Minn qb like a few others on this board

Seems you are the one caring about him. Can't let it go. You are most likly one of the fans that hopes a player gets hurt. To better the chance for a GB win. All week you will be on here with same postings .And in most you will bring in Favre. And all the losers that do boo him or have the neg. signs at the game. Will show the rest of the NFL just how classless some of the GB fans can be. And most people will read into it .That is how we all are.

Brett Favre didn't play bad, but even if he did who cares? All i care about is how GB plays.. You guys keep wasting your time talking about Brett Favre like he even matters anymore.. Aaron Rodgers is a great Quarterback and i think we have a great team. I enjoy watching the pack play no matter who's under center. I'm a GB fan not a Brett Favre fan. Thats what makes me and some others different from the people that thought they were GB fans.

I see Green helping round out a nice 1-2 punch. Grant has looked decent this year and he'll produce if the holes are there. Play Lang again this week rather than Clifton is what I hope happens. I think at this stage Lang is the better option over the injury riddled Clifton, who has been a very good player of us, but is not the player he once was. This next game comes down to the o-line; can they hold up to the Viking defense. One thing that is definitely helping is the return of Bigby. I never knew he was that important, but this defense has stepped up.

It seemed Grant ran with a little more attitude. I would contribute some of that inspiration to Ahman Green on the squad. I think Ahman is already making an impact just with his Veteran leadership and presence. Bigby will make Rice and Berrian a little cautious stepping over the middle. That is what he brings to the table. I like the way Hawk played also, he seemed to play with a little chip on his shoulder. Minn is going to be a good test, I think our D will be up to the challenge. They have the chance to review the Steelers approach and work with that. The Vikes are also coming off a very emotional game, I don't think they will have much left in the gas tank towards the end of the game.
