The OFFICIAL Falcons v Packers Game Day Thread
« on: December 06, 2018, 05:46:47 AM »
A new era begins Sunday. And a lot of questions will be asked, and hopefully answered. Will the Packers offense be more effective? Will the team respond positively to the change? Will the Packers "pack in" the season by benching Rodgers if the game gets out of hand? Will there be tryouts of newer guys, or will the team actually try to win against the faltering/disappointing/predictably underperforming Falcons? a winnin short, will Sunday be the beginning of the end, or the start of a winning streak the team can build on for next year?

It's not over. The Packers are still mathematically alive. This is a must win game, have to win out from here. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...  The tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!

Packers vs. Falcons:
Regular season, all-time: 15-14
All-time, Postseason: 2-2
All-time, in Green Bay: 7-4

Maybe Tramon Williams will return a pick 6 off of Ryan just for oldtime sakes.

I must say you really called it concerning the Falcons a few seasons ago after their Super Bowl collapse. They never recovered.

Isn't their collapse due to the loss of Shanahan? 
Matty Ice has been an illusion most of his career, except for the Shanahan years.

The Falcons have two basic problems.

They do not stuff the run on defense.

The  offensive line cannot make holes for their running backs.

Therefore, teams can just play the pass on them on defense, and run the ball down their throats on offense.

You've never seen "Animal House"? Watch it ASAP. Belushi at his best. Ditto John Vernon as Dean Vernon Wormer: "Drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son."

 It's been a very strange year with lots of good teams having bad years. ATL still has a good offense, pretty much the same players that have torched us for a few years now. Need to see what kind of answer Pettine has for that. Granted, the team is pretty banged up and he will need help from the offense. So need to keep those things in consideration.

"Most of the time, in situations like this, you’ll see players play their ass off," a longtime NFL agent told http://ESPN.com . "They want to show everyone, ‘Hey, we weren’t the problem.’"

Went back and looked at the results of games first after a coach was fired in-season and it is common that that teams win. Even when they are heavy underdogs. The one that stands out to me is the Chiefs with Romeo Crennel replacing Todd Haley and knocking off the then undefeated Packers. I do expect to see the Packers play with the urgency we all wish they would of played with last weekend.

I don't see this ending well for GB.

The Falcons have played in cold weather at GB before, and have played well.

Would I like to see the Packers play well & win? Of course.

I just don't see GB ending the downward spiral this week.

My fault, it's probably been about 20 years or more since I've watched it. And hardly can recall anything but him popping his cheeks lol
