Packers vs. Redskins at Lambeau Field this Sunday


It has been a difficult start to the week given that it started as the Green Bay Packers fell to the Chicago Bears in a devastating 27-20 loss at Lambeau Field, but there is a bright side. I will be heading up to Green Bay this weekend to watch the action live.

The Joe Gibbs' coached Washington Redskins have started the season 3-1 and are hungry for another win as their last game ended in a 34-3 win over the NFC Detroit Lions. Good thing for the Packers that their quarterback leads the NFL in completions, attempts and passing yards. Favre and the team should be able to bounce back and go 5-1 in to the bye week.

They report on Packers.com that this weekend marks the 249th consecutive regular-season sellout at Lambeau. What other venue can boast that record?

How could I not mention that today is Brett Favre's 38th birthday? Like a fine wine, he just gets better with age.

I'm hoping that the Packers have learned their lessons from the Chicago debacle and can put it behind them as they move on.

There were many lessons to be learned in that game-1)the Packers can't count on the running game to carry them against a better that average defense 2)Mike McCarthy has to learn to make adjustments during the game, not just at halftime--and if a player (especially a rookie) makes a mistake that benching him may not always be the wisest thing to do 3)Brady Poppinga can't cover a tight end 1 on 1 and 4) the OL STILL can't run block

BUT I do have faith that the Packers can get past some of these tings--they DO need to return to the pass/run ratio they had coming into this Sunday Night game--and then take the surprise runs for what they are worth, and not a sign that tis team can 'grind it out' with the big boys....
