Week Four Analysis: Through 60 minutes of play last week the Packers held the Seahawks offense to only seven points. Then two refs who were each playing against the Green Bay defense in their respective fantasy leagues decided to make an interception a touchdown, then made Seattle kick an extra point. If the Pack needs any more motivation this week, I'm not sure they'll find it. The Saints travel to Green Bay this week, and Drew Brees' offense has had major problems of their own. Brees has thrown five picks this season and was sacked four times just last week by the Chiefs.
Week Three Analysis: Normally the Packers mantra is to run up a big lead in the first half, watch the opposing team panic and pass way too often, followed by a couple of easy wobbly picks by Charles Woodson. That may not work this week though. The Seahawks have a pesky good defense that could hold the Pack from running it up and quarterback Russell Wilson (coincidently both brands of athletic shirts I own) has been tough to sack and tougher to turn over. Green Bay is the current league leader in sacks, so watch for some crazy blitzing linebackers on Monday night to try to confuse Wilson.
Week One Analysis: Alright, so the Niners' offense only turned the ball over a total of 10 times last season. And yes, the Packers were near the bottom of the league in sacks with only 29. But there's just something about the green and gold building a lead and watching less than average quarterbacks make mistakes. The Packers defense has been the beneficiary of 29 touchdowns over the last six years, and it just seems logical that some Lambeau leaping will be done on opening day for the Pack.
