I am glad that dallas is out of the mix. Pack should make it to the super bowl but lose to NE

Should be an interesting game next week. Not a big surprise with NY as they legitimately should have beaten NE in game 16. Seems a lot like 96 with Dallas getting knocked off by Carolina. I don't see GB losing next weekend but you never know.

Who the $% cares? NOONE will beat NE this year- get it through your heads. Even if Moss doesn't touch the ball- they win. Would love to see him rip GB another new one though- sure seemed to love to do it in the purple and gold

Zamboni, you sound like a disgruntled Queen's fan to me? I agree that I don't think the Pat's will get beat this year, but Dallas did, as well as Indy.

I don't think I said anything about beating the Pats, nor did I say the Packers were going to the Super Bowl. I simply stated that the NFC team will have to win in Green Bay to make it to the big game.

Randy Moss this, Randy Moss that.......you queen fans always get your undies in a bunch when the Pack does well......relax and maybe take a boat cruise to take you mind off it grin.gif

the packers should be healthier than the G-men and win the NFC.

it's gonna take a key injury or something to beat the pats. who knows, maybe the san deigo d will get to brady. it kinda sounds like i'm rooting for an injury. i'm really not, i just think thats what it's gonna take.

Well- Rivers might be out, and Tomlinsons hurt as well. Even at 100% I don't think the Chargers had a chance, now they might as well stay home. And BTW- the Giants chances all depend on #10, he has a good Eli game and the Packs in trouble, he has a bad Eli game, and GB has no problems. Trust me, I had Eli on my FF team a couple years ago- never again, most incosistent QB in the NFL

Just look at Eli's game against the Queens. Dallas seemed to pass effortlessly on their defense most of the game, as well as rush for over 100 yards. The Giants finally got some pressure on Romo late in the game, and broke up the passing game.

Well the high temp is expected to be in the low single digits - should make for an interesting and very, very, cold game.

I agree with BnS.

You gotta give the Pack credit. They couldn't run the ball, and ever since Ryan Grant stepped onto the scene they have been smothering other teams and Grant has been running really well. I see a rematch of the 97 Super Bowl with the opposite winners and losers.

Overall, I just have to make the comment that the Packers fans have been pretty good sports this year, not too heady. Can't say the same about the Vikes' fans on these boards...too much whining IMO.

Sometimes the stars align and they did for the Pack. Young players playing well, decent schedule, tough at home, Favre playing like he's ten years younger...gotta give them credit.

I have to say I will be cheering for the Packers next week. There is only one team in the NFL that I dislike more then the packers, and it is the giants! Go packers I know they can beat the giants! Good Luck !

Whatcha gonna do Pack when #4 retires?- back to mediocrity. I said it before- I like Favre, but hate the Packers. One question-when he does (finally) retire- what do you guys think he will do-broadcaster, coach, maybe just chill out on his acreage?

rodgers is already better than any qb the vikes have, so should be another nfc north title \:\/

i think he'll lay low and spend time with his family. he's too goofy to be a coach and to boring a speaker to be on tv. i do think he should call it a career after this dream season no matter what. cool.gif

So do you guys have a prediction for this weekend?

zamboni, I doubt it'll actually be mediocrity. Sure, Favre is the spirit and the on-field leader of the Pack, but they've got some good young talent there to build around, and if they can find even a decent quarterback to lead them (they already have one in the wings) I'd expect them to hang around .500 for the first season or two and sort of hope to limp into the wild card round. Uh, kind of like the record and playoff hopes the Vikes usually have.

Aside from being born in LaCrosse and having a childhood there during the Lombardi era — and so being genetically and environmentally unable to be a fan of any other pro football team — I've HATED the Dallas Cowboys ever since people stared calling them "America's Team." Yuck. Same reason I never want to see another winning Atlanta Braves season. America's Team. Sheesh. Give me a break. I can't tell you how happy I was to see the Giants take advantage of their fourth-quarter panic attack.

Prediction? As Eli goes, so go the Giants, and you never know how Eli's going to go. I agree somewhat with what was already stated. If he's at the top of his game it's going to be nip and tuck with no clear advantage. If he's not playing that well, the Pack should handle it with ease.

I think with the temps in the low single digits it will be interesting to see how Favre handles it. He didnt handle it well against the bears a couple weeks ago, but it was also windy to. I have to believe the cold weather will equalize the teams even more. I think Burress as big and physical as he is will be able to get free off the line of scrimmage and give the giants a few big play opportunities but the weather may make it difficult for Eli to connect. It will truely come down to a few turnovers and/or big special teams plays. The giants have to make sure they don't allow a Jennings or Driver 8 yard slant to go 80 yards also.

I said it earlier, but will say it again with a prediction-

Peyton type Manning shows up:

Giants 24- Pack 14

Archie type Manning shows up:

Pack 27- Giants 7

When Eli does well, so does the flow of their "D", thats why theres a difference in my scoring.

Grant will rush for another 200yds Pack go to the bowl.

I'll be rooting for the AFC if that happens.

i think the run games will be pretty equal. the big guy for the giants is built for the weather and runs well. it may come down to a big return somewhere. that D line for the giants is a little scary. i don't expect strahan to get a sack like the record breaker a few years ago, but they are gonna try and put pressure on. i expect lots of quick slants and screens. surprise, surprise.

Forecast for sunday: high of 4 degrees and winds gusting to 19mph. Thats worse than what the pack played in against Chicago. Wonder how Favre will respond this time as well as the GB punter.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      Oh sure.... I remember ya..    Birchwood is a nice place too..  I am sure we will be seeing ya this weekend. We will be sitting on the docks during the afternoon so if you see us out swing on over. I have a green Lund Rebel with a 50 Merc...

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
