Trying to Get in the Groove

Well hopefully Green Bay knocked all of the rust out and are willing to start the season anew with the merciless win over the New Orleans Saints a couple weeks ago. The good news is that they come out of their bye week against a struggling Minnesota Viking team. So with another win this weekend, that should help build up some confidence for the Packers as they head into a tough stretch of the season. Following the Vikings, the Packers have to play the red hot Cincinnati Bengals away, followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Atlanta Falcons. With no teams in the NFC North above .500, the Packers have not played themselves out of a playoff position or even a division title.

Another Rough Week for Packers

It looks like the 0-4 Packers are in for another rough week. They are playing the New Orleans Saints, but it looks like their biggest opponent this weekend will be themselves. The Packers will have to play even more shorthanded than they already are with tight end Bubba Franks, running back Ahman Green, and left tackle Chad Clifton all questionable for this Sunday’s game. If the Packers are to dig themselves out of this hole, they would need to begin this weekend with games coming up against the Cincinnati Bengals, Philadelphia Eagles, and Atlanta Falcons.
