Packers vs. Redskins – Game Day First Impressions, Unfiltered: GB 38 WAS 20

Green Bay Packers vs. Washington Redskins:  2013 Game 2

Unfiltered game day blog post of comments, observations and first impressions.

 

GAME NOTES:

It’s pouring in Green Bay today. I believe the wet field factored strongly into the Packers’ decision to keep Burnett out one more week.

While the Packers face a mobile quarterback for the second week in a row, the offenses are fairly dissimilar.

Wilson out, Barrington in.  I think that gives you a subtle hint that the #Packers will not have the same game plan for the #Redskins as last week.

Today’s captains for the Packers: Jermichael Finley (offense), Clay Matthews (defense) and Robert Francois (special teams).

 

Inactives for today:

Green Bay PackersGreen Bay Packers
24 CB Jarrett Bush
29 CB Casey Hayward

43 M.D. Jennings & 22 Jerron McMillian will start at safety for the Packers. 97 DE Johnny Jolly will start on the defensive line.

Mike McCarthy Pregame Show on 620 WTMJ:

South End Zone: You can def tell the difference. It’s always great to be home, outr Alumni comes back for this game, it will be a great day.

Wet conditions: You’re aware of it, communication between QB and center is vital.

Bush: Suffered injury in Thursday’s practice. unfortunate, but our guys are ready

Burnett: He’s been a very good player for us for a number of years now, he’s taken ever rep in camp. No excuses,. MC MD and Banjo are ready

Strong play from front seven last week: Definitely – they set the edge vey well, particularly inside. Very pleased with the run defense. Three things we need to focus on today: stop the run, get after the QB in our pressure packages, taking the ball away too.

Redskins & RGIII last week: Any time you look at an individual’s performance, particularly at quarterback, you have to look at the whole game. They struggled early with the turnovers. but were much better later on.

Surviving Sunday: Packers News, Notes and Links for the Football Deprived

Surviving Sundays With No Packers Football

Surviving Sundays With No Packers Football

As I get older, I can’t tell if I’m getting soft, getting smarter, or both.

I was always one of those people who wasn’t bothered by the use of American Indian imagery and slang for team logos and nicknames. I went to school at St. Cloud State University (the Harvard of the Midwest), which was in a hockey conference with the North Dakota Fighting Sioux.

The Fighting Sioux nickname has been debated endlessly in North Dakota and Minnesota for years. Some say it’s offensive to American Indians and should be scrapped. Others say it’s honorable and should be kept.

In college, I proudly supported keeping the Fighting Sioux nickname. I was the guy at parties who had one too many Keystone Lights and got into fierce political debates. When someone said that the Fighting Sioux nickname should be changed, I would shout them down while cracking open another can of Keystone.

I’ve grown up a lot since then. Most importantly, I now drink good beer, not Keystone Light. Almost as importantly, I now hate American Indian team logos and nicknames.

The Fighting Sioux nickname is bad enough, but nothing gets me going more than the Washington Redskins.

I mean, seriously. The Redskins?! How is it ok to name your team after an obvious racial slur? The fact that our nation’s capital still refers to its professional football team as the Redskins in the year 2013 makes me embarrassed to be a football fan.

Nicknames like the Braves, Fighting Illini or Fighting Sioux are questionable enough, but at least they aren’t blatant racial slurs.

Of course the people in my life who knew me during my pro-offensive-Native American-nickname days are stunned by my change of heart. They ask me when I became so politically correct, why I turned into a weak-ass liberal, or why I care either way.

I tell them it’s got nothing to do with being PC, and it sure as hell has nothing to do with liberal or conservative politics.

Breaking Down Packers Playoff Scenarios

With two more regular season games to go, here is an update on the Packers’ playoff situation:

  • The Packers have already clinched the NFC North. They will be in the playoffs, guaranteed at least one home game and no worse than the fourth overall seed.
  • If the season ended today, the Packers would be the third seed and host the sixth-seeded Vikings on wild-card weekend. That’s likely not going to hold up since the Packers play the Vikings in week 17. The Vikings also could win their next two games and still miss the playoffs.
  • The Packers can move up to the second seed if they win out and the 49ers lose once. The 49ers are at Seattle this week and host Arizona in week 17.
  • Whether the Packers move up to the second seed, or stay at No. 3, a second-round matchup with the 49ers looks likely. If the Packers are the third seed and win their first-round game, they would travel to San Francisco. If the Packers are the second seed and the 49ers win their first-round game as the No. 3 seed, San Francisco would visit Green Bay.
  • The Packers can get the first seed if they win out and the Falcons lose their last two games.
  • If the Packers stay the third seed, it’s very likely that their first-round game will be against a wild-card team from the NFC East or the Bears.
  • Let’s assume the Packers stay the third seed, who would you want to play in the first round: Chicago, New York, Washington or Dallas? I’d pick Washington. They can’t guard the slot and I trust Dom Capers to not to get thrown off by RG3 and the Redskins’ funky formations.
  • Chicago seems like the obvious choice, but beating the Bears three times in the same season seems like we’d be asking too much of the football gods.
  • Check out ESPN’s NFL Playoff Machine if you want to try and figure out potential playoff pairings yourself.
