Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: Cole Madison out for season

Tearing an ACL in practice- talk about having bad luck!

The Packers could bring an offensive lineman up from the PS but Madison hasn't been active all season I don't think.  This might be an opportunity to raid another teams practice squad and give a player at another position a look see.

Extremely tough break for Madison. But, next man up. Here seem to be the options for the Packers, from AcmePackingCompany:

The Packers have one offensive lineman on their practice squad, offensive tackle Yosh Nijman. If they would choose to use Madison’s roster spot for the line, they may reach out to players on other teams’ practice squads to bring in an interior player. Alternately, with Lucas Patrick, Adam Pankey, and Alex Light all capable of playing on the inside, the team could elect to add a player at another position group.

I don't believe the Packers ever "mail it in." Like all human beings they are however susceptible to reading their headlines and buying into the hype on occasions. Rodgers call it out when he said, "We're kind of rolling, 7-1, and starting to listen to the chatter maybe a little too much. ... after the loss to the Chargers. Hopefully it was a lesson learned. The other danger in losing focus is getting ahead of themselves and looking past what is right in front of them.

Like many of you, I believe and hope coming off the bye the team will be healthy, ready, and laser focused for their very important game against the 'niners. If they want to get to the promised land they will need to keep and bring that focus to each game that lies ahead of them.

I have been impressed by our rookie coaches ability to keep his team on the path of growth throughout the season - I hope to continue to be.

This clap) clap)

I agree you have to play it week by week.....................but the chances of the Packers (players and coaches) looking past such a pivotal game this Sunday, are nil.

The Packers may not win this (really, it is a toss-up who wins) but whether they play well or badly, after a bye week there is no reason to suppose the Packers won't give it their all.

Agree, I believe they will be pumped this week, its the Giants and Redskins type games they cant mail in.

Five things that help the win, in order:

1) Win the toss and defer
2) Then stop the first 49er drive
3) After that, score a TD on the first drive
4) Score on the first possession after half time
5) Win the turnover battle.

After looking at the injury reports for both teams it appears that the Packers charmed season may of caught another break and have caught the 49er's at just the right time this week. A fully healthy Packers will face a beat up 49er's squat who may be without a number of key players.

I don't feel the same urgency that some on here are trying to build. It would be nice to win this weekend, but even if they drop this one they could very well still be ahead of the 49er's in 2 or 3 weeks. I personally don't think the 49er's are even going to win their division and if that happens they will be on the road as a wildcard even if they owned the tie breaker with the Packers. Of course the Packers are no lock to win the North either, the Vikings sit 1 game back and have a home game with GB in week 16. Does the joyride keep rushing along or will it come off the tracks?

Should be a fun game to watch, but the feeling that this fan gets is the Packers are playing with house money here. Now how they approach having that house money is the mystery that will be revealed come Sunday. Hopefully they want to hang on to that money and bank it on the close of business on Sunday night.

Never say never when it's about whether someone can play. Two guys who were supposed to be out were at practice- no contact jerseys aside, that makes them a game time decision. Kittle in particular would be a significant addition:

Over the years, everyone tries to justify and explain away the losses. Truth is, every win counts. It helps you earn your post season home games. This tweet says something I agree with:

Ryan Wood
@ByRyanWood
If #Packers win in 7 days, they leapfrog 49ers in NFC standings. Destiny in their hands. But...

Five NFC teams (!!) have at least 8 wins. Packers among them.

GB could have home field through NFC playoffs. They could play WC game on road.

Last 6 games are huge.

Indeed the are, and for that reason the focus needs to be locked in on each game as they come. Looking ahead is a mistake too many teams make when trying to progress on the road to the Lombardi.

Each game will present a unique challenge and opportunity. I for one am excitedly looking forward to the biggest game of the season which will be played on Sunday night in Santa Clara, CA.
Next week, I will look forward to the biggest game of the season played in Meadowlands...
And the next week biggest game of the season against the 'skins at Lambeau...
And then the biggest game of the season against da bears at Lambeau...
Followed by the biggest game against the Vikings... and then the kitties in Detroit.

If the team continues to stay focused and takes each game as they come, we likely will have an opportunity to start this process again in the 2nd season, but as I said, those are challenges for another time.

Agree with all that B.  Gotta play each week and focus on your opponents.  QBs like Wentz and Rivers are having bad years although Rivers has a lot of yards. What do these 2 have in common?  They both played well enough one week to beat the Packers.  You gotta come to play each and every week.
