What Packers Fans Are Saying

A brief look at what we went thru last year

We were in the middle of a 7 game re-build last year when we played in Lambeau. Most people equate what we were from Oct.-Nov. '14 to what we are now. The Dec. '14 Panthers is who we are now.

Our secondary got 80% turned over after the Packers got us at our worst at the start of that 1-8-1 skid. Our O-Line got 60% turned over in the same stretch and this off-season saw us let the worst LT in the league get hit in the azz by the door on his way out. RBs had a nasty injury bug going and we were down to our 4th string RB (Darrin Reaves anyone?) at one point in the 1-8-1 skid when the Pack played us.

Last year, Cam was dealing with the off-season ankle surgery, getting cracked ribs in pre-season game #3, and the cracked bones in his back from his Dec. truck accident. The ankle surgery was the killer, since he couldn't throw normal to his 100% brand new WR corps in OTAs, training camp, and pre-season. None of them had ever played in Carolina before. Chemistry? When could it happen? Took until December when he was healthy and he had gotten enough reps with his receivers to start putting teeth in the offense.

And let's not forget Greg Hardy being fine and dandy week 1 then the Ray Rice poo-storm costing us the player we had used our franchise tag on the next 17 games. $13 million of cap space it cost us when the NFL decided to change it's definition of due process policy in Sept. from what it was presented as in May.

We did play to a tie the week before, but a lot of those players weren't on the roster when December rolled around. Our young guys were taking over and turning things around.

Secondary you faced=CB Antoine Cason, CB Melvin White, Nickel corner Charles Godfrey, S Thomas Decoud, started getting cut after our Lambeau visit when the rookies were ready and when Josh Norman climbed out of the doghouse. O-Line you faced=LT Byron Bell, LG Amini Silatolu, RG Fernando Velasco, RT Nate Chandler all lost their starting jobs the same way the secondary did except LT Bell, who was a free agent and, ummm, encouraged, to test the free agency waters.

To top it all off, our lucky charm of a Swiss Army knife playmaker Mike Tolbert is healthy. He cracked his fibula in week 4, went on IR-DTR, then came back Dec.7 vs. New Orleans and our regular season 11 game win streak started. We were 2-1 the first 3 games of 2014 that he played the full game for, 1-7-1 during his IR visit, then 4-0 to finish the regular season when he returned.

 

 

TL;DR   Different players and circumstances than last year's game. We're not re-building this time. And that ain't Lambeau on your TV screen this Sunday.

Going to be a tough game for us. We havent beaten a team above .500 on the road since 2012. I honestly dont think we will win but I hope im wrong.

The thing I like most about playing Green Bay is that they give up 4.7 yards a carry on run defense and we love to run.  The thing I like least about playing them is that we aren't getting a tremendous amount of pressure on the opposing QB's and they have one of the best in the business.

Never know. Cam's not old enough to get calls from the refs and Luke was wrongly ejected from the last Packer game when the ref grabbed him from behind and Luke swung blindly at him thinking it was a Packer trying to drag him back into a melee.

Refs did everything they could to keep the Colts in the game Monday Night. So the Packers have that going for them.

Rivera said Kalil could have played Monday if needed, they were just being cautious...according to the Mac Attack. Hope Shaq is a full go.

I hope it is a clean officiated game.

I read that stat today and couldn't believe it. I think it was 0-9 against +.500 teams on the road since 2012? Would have never guessed that.

Sadly there will be a poo ton of Packer fans in BofA on Sunday as well so crowd noise might be nuetralized a bit.

You sound just like my family up there. Ahh, the upper Midwest. The last great bastion of naivety in the world.

Packers are good for business and higher ad rates with the fan base they have built over, what, 75ish years. Us being the new kids we get the red-headed stepchild treatment.

After this week I hope you guys do awesome. I was mad about all those calls against you as well. Happy you won despite it.

Julius Peppers coming out game

Maybe if there was nothing on the line but this is an important game with possibly big implications so he will be MIA.

Last year I think the reason we dominated so much was cause you guys had such a physical tough game with the Bengals the week before that ended in a tie. I think you were flat from that. I honestly love beating up on Dallas, Seattle, New York and everyone from our division that way. Carolina is a classy team but still want to win as much as you guys do.

Ugh.  I'd forgotten our game against the Packers last year came after our OT tie with Cincinnati.  And now you guys get us again following a really grueling OT game.  Sigh.

I'm definitely concerned that our guys are somewhat beat up.  If we can pull out the win... this is the stuff champions are made of.  Surely this is going to be TOUGH.   I'm not ready to call it either way yet.  I won't be ashamed if we lose, but wow, if we win....  words fail.

This is one of the two games I predicted we lose. I think we get humbled a bit. Our offense learns that not taking advantage of opportunities will bite us. I just don't feel as good about this game as I would like. Certainly possible we win, if we can execute at all three phases of the game and minimize their big plays. If we get to the QB and control field position, I like our chances. Short of that, we could be in for a frustrating day.

Take away Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are an extremely average team. Good thing we have lockdown corners. Have to get pressure from the line though
