All Entries in the "NFC North" Category

Welcome to Opposition Research, where I'll be taking a look at the next Packers opponent, the Minnesota Vikings.  I could try to be dispassionate and approach this post like I did the one before it, but you know that’s not going to work here.  Everyone in the national media is talking about this game - what it means to the Packers, what it means to Brett Favre, what it means to those fans that still can’t choose between the Packers and Brett Favre.  You get the picture.  So for this week, I’m going to do what I can to shed light on a few things you might not have heard about in the hype that’s already started.

An interesting factoid this afternoon from Tom Pelissero on Twitter - the NFC North went 4-0 on the week.  With the Lions finally having won a game (their first since December 2007), I wondered just how far back you'd have to go to find the last time the North had such a good outing.  Not counting bye weeks, the last time the NFC North went undefeated was Week 10 in 2005, when the Packers won their second of only four victories on the year.  On that given Sunday, the Packers beat up on the Falcons, the Vikings beat the Giants, the Bears beat the 49ers, and the Lions held off the Cardinals. 

Jackson is a big man who can still move, and shockingly well at that, while providing more than adequate production on third downs as well.

Cutler has not shown the ability to manage a game and as funny as it seems that you would decry a guy who is a prototypical guy at the position physically for not being a "game manager", it's exactly that deficiency in his game that is keeping him from becoming a great quarterback.

That sucks. Detroit Rock City got rid of Matt Millen...finally.

That's right, For our generation of fans this is the real ENEMY to the Green Bay Packers. Plus - the Norse crap is lame...

and so they should be the first to get a Bobble head here at the Other 31....

and they all place second to the Green Bay Packers.
