2014 NFL Playoffs Divisional Round - Packers vs Cowboys
Cowboys coming to Lambeau for a playoff game for the first time since the Ice Bowl
Should be a good test for the defense to see how much they've improved since moving Clay inside
I think GB's offense should be able to do what they want vs that Dallas defense, so the key will be if GB's defense can get those stops to start the game to allow GB to get a 10+ point lead. Make Dallas play catch up all game and increase likelyhood of Romo throwing some INT's
This should be a good matchup to get the little monkey off our offense's back regarding that units lack of postseason success the last three years. Let's not forget, our defense really showed up last year considering how beaten up it was.. our offense really let us down.
There is no reason we should put up less than 30 on this Cowboy team. Period. Anything less is a failure on our offense to do their part.
The question will be how our defense holds up against Murray and how they fare passrushing this talented OLine. If we give Romo time, he'll hit his weapons. Get him frantic and his accuracy drops tremendously.
Also, does our special teams make yet another blunder? Those blocked field goals, etc.. are 10x as costly come playoff football.
I think with Rodgers dinged up the Cowboys will expect us to come out running; I think we'll come out passing from a very quick no huddle. I get the sense we'll want to take them out of the ball control mindset very quickly and try to overwhelm their lackluster defense with sheer speed and precision.
If we do come out running, I will be very concerned as to the actual severity of Rodgers' injury.
I don't know if you guys read 'Ask Vic' over on packers.com but in this mornings edition he gave his two tickets to Sunday's game to a mother with two kids who said "she'd give anything to be at this game" but couldn't afford to buy tickets. That's awesome.
Schefter and Mort reporting that Rodgers has a slight tear in his calf in addition to having a significant strain
confusing thing about that is that a strain and a tear are the same thing so IDK what they are trying to say. I think we all knew he was dealing with a tear/strain, the only new bit of info is they used the word significant
He's gonna play, but it's clear that the Rodgers we saw 2nd half vs Detroit is the Rodgers we'll be getting throughout this playoff run.
In a year where the team is the healthiest it's been in years, it's their QB who will be playing through a rough injury smh. He won't have his mobility, which negates a big part of his game. Offense won't be able to capitalize as much on broken plays with Rodgers scrambling around. Main worry is him injuring the calf even worse, completely knocking him out. That's all I worry about going forward
So glad they won. Don't like their chances at ALL next week but just glad they beat the ****** Cowboys at home
offense is so limited with Rodgers turned into a statue back there....add in their play on the road this year + that Seattle defense, won't be pretty IMO
Even with a healthy Rodgers, probably wouldn't like their chances anyway...but still, enjoying this win. Love that Dallas has a controversial call go against them after they benefited last week from a multitude of generous calls
How about the rookies? Once again in a big game they come up big. Adams and Rodgers both with TD's and Adams had over 100 yards receiving. Need this to continue especially with Rodgers hurting. Everybody on offense has to step it up to back him up...give him more weapons to throw to
