    Packers are still no slouch but I expect to dominate and win this game. Hopefully we go in and get out with no significant injuries.

    Iím back from vacation boys!! Wasnít able to discuss that Panthers game but itís okay, we canít win them all. Honestly, I thought it was as good of a loss that you can have and made me very confident that we can make a big run in the playoffs. We went on the road in a tough place to play against a really good team with a great defense, and we still put up 24 points and left some points on the board. We had every opportunity to win that game and I firmly believe that we would have won if it werenít for uncharacteristic things we did (Thielen dropped touchdown, 3rd down penalties on defense, allowed a 60 yard scramble from QB). We win that game if it was in US Bank!

    My brother is a huge rams fan and we go at it all the time about whoís the better team. And I really think we are better and more equipped to win the NFC. When the rams had to go on the road in a hostile environment to play a good team with a great defense, we completely shut them down and held em to 7 points (on the first drive might I add). When we traveled to Charlotte, our offense traveled too. We were making plays, scoring points, and left points on the board that would have won the game for us. Its great to have the best offense in the league and to lead the NFL in points, but those teams rarely win superbowls because great defense beats great offense year in and year out. To win the big game, you have to be able to get stops and make enough plays on offense, and we are proven to be able to do that.

    Oh yea and then we bounced back and hung 34 on Cincy in 3 quarters. Lets go get this #1 seed now!!!! We are all huge Derek Carr fans this week!!

    Davante Adams - WR - Packers
    Dec 21 - 11:10 AM
    Davante Adams (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Vikings.

    Green Bay will now be without both Aaron Rodgers and Adams, who has been Brett Hundley's clear No. 1 option this season. With Adams out, Jordy Nelson should see a lot of Xavier Rhodes, making him basically unplayable, and neither Randall Cobb nor Geronimo Allison is in a great spot either. This looks like a passing game to avoid.

    I guess I can understand Keenum, but how the **** did Harrison Smith and Linval Joseph not make the probowl? Thatís ridiculous. I knew Barr was going to make if over Kendricks just because of the popularity.

    I know i did my part in the voting!

    Smith is the one that really gets me, he should be in. Linval has a good argument as well but I can at least understand that. Didn't really expect Keenum personally.

    Linval and Harrison in my opinion are the 2 most important pieces to our defense. Followed by Rhodes and the pass rushers.

    Hmmm that's really tough to try and rank, I would have to think on it a little. I agree though they are very high on the list

    It's all popularity but it really does surprise me that Smith doesn't get that even. But Smith is very very low key guy. Kind of like Barr making it last year which he shouldn't have even been close. This year you could argue Lavonte David over him but Barr has rebounded nicely from last year.
