    Offense clears the air

    [size=13pt]Offense clears the air[/size]

    By Greg A. Bedard of the Journal Sentinel
    Posted: Nov. 11, 2009


    But if the Packers can somehow find a way to beat the Dallas Cowboys (6-2), a bona fide contender, on Sunday, the players know the entire momentum of the season can shift. That's why coach Mike McCarthy said, in his own way, that Sunday is a must-win for his team.

    "We really want to win the game this week," McCarthy said. "There's no question about that.

    "Our message is very clear. The head coach has to coach better, the coaches have to coach better, the players have to play better, and we have to win games. That's our focus. We're going to apply all of our energy into this Dallas game plan. . . . That's about as far down the road as we're looking. We're going to pour everything that we have into winning at home against the Cowboys. That's our focus."

    I'm actually cheering on GB this week... frankly I'd rather have a 2 game lead on the 1st round bye in the NFC than another game advantage on GB in the NFCN.
    Maybe I can just hope for a tie?
    The true measure of a man is what he'd do knowing he'd never be found out.

    Same here, besides it will be easier to root for Dallas when we need Dallas to take out New Orleans.

    Go Pack! (this week)

    Re: Offense clears the air

    I am going to throw this in this thread.
    On the Red Zone yesterday, Gil Brandt was talking about and indicator of how well teams do.
    If you take the draft picks from 2003 to 2007 and see the percentage of draftees that are starters on that team it is an indicator of how they are going to be.
    He said that the Packers were the lowest or one of the lowest around 24 percent.

    I wish I could see the stats visually.

    I think he said the highest percentage was around 42 percent.
    I need to see if he has that on his nfl.com site.

    Would love to see that, as well.

    Lets hope they gut the team and start over........ ;D

    Maybe we could snag a few key players like Kampman or Jennings... you'd love that eh?

    I think they should keep this team and staff together for a decade minimum. They play just the way I always wanted them to.

    I had been wondering how long it would be until someone mentioned this, To actually root for a Packer win just seems so Bizarro world, But like BP&G said we want that home field advantage, Well here goes to rooting against the Cowboys, and Saints for the remainder of the season.
    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.

    Same thing during the summer. I dispised rooting for the white sox, but it was needed. Turned out not as much as we thought, twins win 16 of their last 21.
