Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: The OFFICIAL Broncos v Packers Game Day Thread

 Broncos rely on a short passing game with quarterback Joe Flacco, WR Emmanuel Sanders has  been their biggest weapon. Jaire Alexander should be able to match up with him. Packers offense can do some damage on Sunday with there ground attack, Broncos has given up 125.5 rushing yards per game this season, tied for 24th in the NFL, Jones should be able to gash this Broncos D and find plenty of cutback lanes for big gains.The Packers D should be able to shut down the ponies passing attack on Sunday. Packers need to take care of business, they are facing a tough opponent next Thursday night vs Eagles.

The Broncos are a top 10 defense in yards per game.  Another lackluster game by Rodgers and the offense could make this game tight.

Mine is the fact we certainly have a more balanced attack this year.

I want to say last year we had the fewest rushing attempts, this year there is a more even distribution between passing and running the ball. That said, we are still a bottom five team offensively in terms of yardage, granted, we have faced two tough defenses and face another tough test in Denver.

John Kuhn asked Rodgers if this was possibly a trap game in the locker room yesterday and Rodgers downplayed the idea, but after 2 huge division wins to start the season it does have the feeling that a group letdown is a possibility. The Broncos are 0-2 and 0-2 teams are always dangerous teams to play, 1-2 is manageable, 0-3 is very hard to overcome. The Broncos will be playing to save their season in week 3 and after giving the Bears all they could handle I expect them to bring a street fight mentality to GB on Sunday. The question is, will the Packers be ready for such a fight?

The TWO gunners on punt coverage will come from the group of Will Redmond, Tony Brown, Tremon Smith, Chandon Sullivan, Allan Lazard and maybe even Jake Kumerow. Darrius Shepherd will not be used as a gunner.

My guess is that Tremon Smith will handle the KO returns and Darrius Shepard is healthy and ready to handle the punt returns from this point forward.

........... Shepherd was limited participation on Wednesday (hamstring), might be ready for the Broncos. Since I sort of canvassed for him to be on the final 53, I'd like to see how he does on ST. I'm not sure who the ST gunner is now. It might be Smith (5'11", 190lb, sub 4.4 40 time) because he is lots faster than Shepherd (4.57 40)

Why not put them both on the field? As the old saying goes, "Speed kills."

Trevor Davis traded to the Raiders today

The signing of Tremon Smith made this move possible. He can return kicks, is faster, and apparently the Packers think he has more upside than Davis. Best wishes, and I hope he can find a niche on that evolving roster in Las Vegas.

Maybe it was my eyes but I thought Davis caught his return balls a little low to the ground.. always kind of scared me

The Broncos are not a team to overlook. The Bears somehow snatched victory from the jaws of a second straight loss due to two gifts by the refs: a bogus "roughing the passer" call and the officials deciding that after getting the Bears in position for a FG, they should be given the chance to win the game. Meanwhile, if the Packers offense can become more consistent, and the defense continues to excel, this should be a very winnable game for the Packers. Though it could also be one of "those games", where the team plays down to the level of their competition. However, a win Sunday could go a ways toward re-establishing that "Lambeau advantage" that has been absent for a few years. Most important: don't take your foot off the gas; put it on your opponent's throat.
