Week 8 Breakdown by The Viking Age


As it does each week, The Viking Age has broken down the NFC North.  I have to give them props this week, as the Detroit Lions were the only team in action.

The words on the Packers:

Green Bay Packers (4-3):

Looking Back: A bye week for the Packers. Luckily the Jets were playing so the fans had something to watch. Favre had a spotty game but pulled it out in typical Favre fashion. The Jets are only 4-3 so Packer fans needn’t feel they’re really missing anything. Aaron Rodgers looks just about as good as Favre right now and he’s lots younger. A playoff berth might just win back the diehard #4 freaks who swore they’d never root for the green and gold again (I know such people exist; I’m related to one).

Looking Forward: A trip into Tennessee to face the Titans. This could be the best test the Packers and Aaron Rodgers have had all year. If they pass it, they could ride the momentum straight into the post-season (helped by the fact that they’re in a mediocre division). Winning will mean overcoming a Titans defense that ranks in the top 10 against both the run and pass. It will mean slowing down a rush offense that ranks 3rd in the league. The Pack should have loads of confidence coming off their undressing of the Colts two weeks ago at home.

Sounds good to me.

    A spotty game?  He threw three picks and did his best to lose the game.  You’re one of those apologists, huh, Viking Age?
    How can anyone swear to never root for the green and gold again and still claim they are a Packer fan?  They are Favre fans only and as such they are not welcome at Lambeau again.
