I think this will be a close one but seeing as we are going into the Titan territory, I see that it will be the toughest game yet this year.

I see Rodgers being pressured a lot and him having to dump it off or run for his life. I see Grant/Jackson with lots of receptions...

Mostly, I think this will come down to IF the Packers can STOP the run early and be able to maintain a scoring balance throughout. I have faith that we can and will do that and the Pack WILL pull it out at the end, 27-24.

They're running over everyone... and our run defense is horrible. On the good side, they can't throw it that well, and we have amazing DBs. One on one should be enough giving us the change to put some guys in the box. That, and the return of some key players.

Their defense is just crazy though. They seem to be somewhat aggresive so maybe some Screens will work. We'll be going nowhere with the run though, I'm afraid, so it'll be on Rodgers and our receiving core once again.

the colts did good with the run it was the passing that they had a problem with and i think with the guys we have at w.r we should be okay :icon_smile:

Spread it out and get some quick hitters. Play 8 in the box regularly and let our speedy linebackers and safeties chase down Johnson. This is how I think we can beat them. If we try and pound the ball we just aren't going to get anywhere. A few complimentary runs should be sufficient, but if we come out of the gates Grant, Grant, Pass then we are going to be in for a long day.

I don't know why I have this gut feeling of us not only beating the Titans...but beating them pretty bad. I just think we are a great team all around, not looking at the 3 loses we have. The team is finally clicking and I think we have too many weapons for the Titans to stop.

I think this one like almost all games IMO will come down to the battle of the lines. This game it might show more. If the Packers can't contian things on either side, it will be ugly. if they can at least put up a fight on the lines, we have a chance with our passing game.

The line on the game has dropped one full point since the opener of 5.5. Now it's at 4.5. That is a pretty big move in the NFL betting world. I'm still lighting some Joss sticks...

i know hanseworth can be a factor but i feel the guys up front did a good job against the williams allen just to name a few,think they can handle hanesworth feel they should let jackson pound the ball in there he keeps moving colts were wearing hanesworth out in the run game well the whole d-line think it was because tiatns thought them more passing than running team,i feel the d-line will give their o-line big headaches kampy will keep pushing and get collins where he is not comfortable you stop their run game and the passing well we know who will be watching for those balls :icon_smile:

Say what you want about the quality of the Titan's opponents so far this year, but holding opposing offenses to 12.4 points per game is just sick.

Here's what we need to do to win this game (I'll spare you all the obvious ones: running well, stopping the run, avoiding injuries, etc):

1) Two TE sets. This will help in pass protection as well as in the short passing game. The Titan's LBs aren't world-beaters in coverage and can be victimized by quick, short passes.
2) Jump out to an early lead. Monday night against the Colts was (I believe) their only significant come-from-behind win this year. They're not built for it.
3) Dig deeper into the playbook. With only four days to prepare, their film study of us will be limited. They will be most susceptible to plays that we don't use that often.
4) Slow down their pass rush with short passes and screens. Haynesworth is playing like a beast right now and we can't afford to have him in the backfield every other play.
5) Judicious use of the "Big 5". Rodgers probably won't have time to find the deep routes, but if we spread the defense out we can kill them all day with the short stuff (see #1).
6) Last, but most importantly, Rodgers needs to keep his head on straight. The Titans are reeling in 1.5 INTs per game - mostly due to opposing QBs panicking under pressure from their pass rush. If Rodgers can avoid bad decisions and rushed throws, we'll be OK.

Seems like a lot to ask, but I think we can do all of them. The Flaming Thumbtacks are good, but they're not undefeated good.

We can take 'em.
