  1. Lots of so-called “experts” picking Detroit today.

    No sure thing for the Pack.

    The Lions are a motivated opponent.

  2. All you thinking that Starks doesn’t matter are IDIOTS… Did you watch the playoffs last year?

  3. There’s no denying that the Lions will be excited, but don’t forget that the Packers have a bad taste in their mouths after losing to the Lions last year. The Packers have everything to gain with a win today.

  4. I thought it might be all aboard the “Saine Train” today.

    Glad to see Starks active…but active vs. able to contribute are two different things.

    It seems like our D has sleep walked through most of this season knowing the O can outscore the opponent pretty easily.

    Today, I’m hoping we have the type of performance we had vs. Minnesota at Lambeau.

  5. If Starks really is healthy, that does help the Packers. This promises to be a competitive game. Even in his absence, I would however not forget the potential influence of Ryan Grant (talk about motivated) let alone judicious use of John Kuhn and of course Finley. Randall Cobb may also shine today. If Rodgers stays upright, I’m thinking the Pack just will have too many weapons for the Lions. GPG

  6. In light of my “Favorite team’s” lack of success the past 50+ years, i do have to make fun of it a little bit here, because right now it’s totally “laughable”…

    But the opening kickoff of GBvDet today… Crosby had his 34th touchback of the season.. At the beginning of the 11th game! I wonder… Will Ryan Longwell even have 34 total kick offs this year? 🙂 That could be very difficult for him to get to!

    Happy Thanksgiving, and Go Packers!

    And yes, you can have more than one favorite team… And yes, they can be in the same division!
