I dunno if I'll even be able to watch today. Without Calvin none of the WRs will be able to get open and the Pack can focus all their attention on Reggie.

I wouldn't be so sure. Just remember that this defensive game plan was practiced for two weeks. Throwing that in the garbage and changing it up is just as big a deal as CJ being out. And if they focus completely on Bush, WR's and TE's gonna be seeing a lot of open looks. CJ hasn't been the dominating force on offense this season. It's been more balanced. It'll be a harder win, but if they pull it off, it'll be an even bigger win.

What a blow. IMO, establish and maintain a tough, ground and pound, down your throat run game with Bush/Bell, always having two TEs and the WRs being Durham/Broyles with Bush playing some WR. Just don't run anywhere near #52 and we'll be good.

Maybe we'll get a breakout game from Fauria or Broyles today. Had to throw Ryan in for Calvin on a fantasy team, so I'm hoping

Key to winning this game will be the defense. Shutdown Rogers!

Agreed. I think for us to win, the defense is going to have to get turnovers, and probably score.

Game over man, game over.

The only way they could win would be if one of our other receivers had a Matt Flynn vs. the Lions like day against the Packers.

Why the f are they running routes short of the first down on third and short/medium!!! It's not that hard to run a 6 yard route

I like how the packers can stand up a RB and body slam him after the whistle and it's ok. As long as your a fudgie, it's kosher. If you're a lion, it's 15 yards and a F'ing fine from the league

How the heck wasn't that a defenseless receiver hit on Durham? f'ing fudge packers

Because Durham is a nobody and the league only protects it's high profile stars who generate merch revenue

All things considered, I guess we can't be too unhappy that they're only down 6-3 at the half. Our defense hasn't looked that impressive, but give them some credit for holding the Fudgies to only two field goals considering that they have had almost no help from the offense.

It's looking like they're going to need some Green Bay miscues or a slate of good luck plays on offense to win this.

Wow, are the zebras even looking for fudgie penalties?
