The OFFICIAL Lions vs Packers Game Day Thread
« on: November 11, 2015, 08:32:49 AM »
Desperation time? Not for me. Concern, certainly, but not panic. The team is in a funk, no doubt. And this game is just what the doctor ordered. At home, against the hapless Lions (who last won in Wisconsin in 1991). This is also a four game challenge against division rivals. Sweep the next four games, and the North should be sewn up. then, its time to prepare for the playoffs. Remember, last year the defense got better as the season progressed. That needs to happen again. And the offense needs to find ways to get their mojo back.

Game on FOX and typically here in Reno they are not carrying ANY game here locally.

That stinks Larry!  \ - : #  Maybe there's a decent game watch on CBS before the big show-down Sunday night between the sea hogs and Arizona.

I'm stunned, but quite pleased the local FOX affiliate out of Portland is airing the Packers! I DID NOT expect that to happen! It's time for the Packers to get back on track!!!

That's too bad.  Can you go to a local Packer bar?  WTMJ also airs the game broadcast with Wayne and Larry online so you can at least get that.   http://www.wtmj.com/

A 6-2 team playing at home against a 1-7 team.
At least a 17pt+ victory.
Doubtful we will have another day like this ( weather ) until spring time.
Will have the radio headset on & working outdoors on the to do list.

This game makes me nervous. The Lions are due to snap their incredible Lambeau losing streak. The Lions, though a team in disarray, are also a team that knows no one's job is safe. So, they will be hungry, desperate, and playing a hated division rival. In those games, throw out the stats, including the W-L records. These are always grudge matches. Unless one team is so superior to the rest of the division (this has happened with every team in the North- except Detroit) just rolls over their opponents. So, get ready for a much closer game than will be comfortable.

Keys to the game: getting it done on third down on offense and defense. Getting the running game going. Keeping Rodgers from getting knocked around, even if he's not sacked. Oh, and most important- score more points than the Lions.  ::)

And of course, the Lions have the NFC sack leader.

From the Packer website:

Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) has been downgraded to DOUBTFUL.

Packers LB Mike Neal (hip) and CB Sam Shields (shoulder) have been upgraded to PROBABLE for tomorrow’s game against the Lions.”


The Packers will need to find ways to limit Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. Too bad Wisconsin native and UW alum DeAndre Levy is out for the season for the kittens. It's always nice for these kids to have a homecoming. REALLY GOOD Player!

The Lions picked him up after the Pats cut him.

Lacy Inactive after saying he wasn't injured all week. My guess the coaching staff is trying to send a message.
