Good point about the squeaker, I guess I'm just a little spoiled and being behind at any point just doesn't feel right. :)

I'm most concerned about the Packers defense. This is a game where Green Bay pretty much outplayed Minnesota all day, and yet at the end of the game the Vikings were never out of it.

So far, Green Bay has been getting away with this because they have been clicking on offense... but I worry what happens when they play a good team that has a strong defense and then something doesn't click and they need a defensive stop to get through the game.

It's hard to poo-poo the last undefeated team in the league! But... if I were a Packers fan, I would be biting my nails a little in anticipation of what happens when their backs are against the wall and they need a defensive stop.

As for Detroit... I really hope this isn't the start of the wheels coming off... and Stafford might be injured too? I hope they don't fade away... but 2 losses at home in a row... Detroit fans should be a little bit concerned at this point since they haven't yet played the Packers and they are already 2 games back in their division... it could get worse in a hurry if they don't right the ship.

I agree Stewart. They allowed way to many 3rd down conversions. So many, the Vikings actually contemplated going for it on 4th and 10.

Stewart,

I know what you mean. I'm watching the Packers D give up many yards. And sometimes, like today, more points thank I'd like.

McCarthy always talks about improving. We are 4/5/6 and 0, yet "we need to continue to improve." Continue to get better.

And I think the Packers are missing Cullen Jenkins more than they expected. He was a big part of an awesome front the Packers had in the playoffs last year. I'm hoping when Neal finally gets to play we'll have that again. And won't that be scary for other teams... :)

Cheers,
Tom

Go Packers!

I was just looking at the schedule... and for the most part Green Bay is probably good for the rest of the season. I'm not guaranteeing run-the-table good... but they really don't have any "complete" teams left to play.

Detroit and the Giants might be the best two defensive teams left on the schedule... and those two teams also happen (fortunately for the Packers) to be teams that have some offensive issues.

I think back to the first game against New Orleans... and how Green Bay outscored the Saints basically... and it seems to me that since then, the Saints are slowly getting a little better on defense (not great, but better)... whereas the Packers are seeming pretty much the same to me on defense.

So the Saints would scare me in a rematch in the playoffs. IF Harbaugh keeps the 49ers on track the whole season, then they would REALLY scare me if they keep going the way they are, because they have a solid defense and their offense is improving as the season goes.

Detroit has fallen back a little now, so I wouldn't fear them in the same way I would have a couple of weeks ago.

On the AFC side... New England has a poor defense but their offense is in league with Green Bay... and the Ravens are like the flip of that... the offense is ok but the defense is really good. The Ravens might really be a problem for the Packers IF it comes to that in the Super Bowl.

All things considered... it's probably a good year in some ways to be weak on defense... since there aren't a lot of powerhouse teams... but it still makes me a little nervous.

I look at my Panthers... and truth be told... they have had more than enough offense to be 5-2 instead of the 2-5 they are! But the Panthers have way less defense than the Packers... so you see how that works out!

If you really look at the Packers final scores... they are undefeated, but could easily have dropped about half of their games if things went just a little bit askew... not the fault of the offense, but that's because they have been playing near perfect, and odds are against them continuing to be perfect week to week.
