Jan. 1 Packers-Lions game stays at noon

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 25, 2011 – 4:55 pm

The Packers’ regular-season finale on Jan. 1 against the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field will remain as a noon (CT) kickoff. The NFL has decided to flex the Giants-Cowboys matchup, which is a winner-take-all affair for the NFC East title, to prime time.

The Lions already have clinched a Wild Card playoff berth, their first postseason bid since 1999. The Packers could have the NFC’s No. 1 playoff seed wrapped up before next week, if they win tonight against the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field.

    I have been a Packer fan since before Lombardi and have seen just about everything, but the truth is what it is. They are not going to repeat with this awful defense. Drew Brees will carve up this defense like a New York chef carving up a Christmas turkey. I don’t know if it’s Capers or the personnel, alot of both I’m sure, but I’m a firm believer you win championships with great defense. We have undoubtedly the top offense in the league with the Saints a close second in my opinion, but if you can’t stop anybody it’s eventually going to catch up with you and the playoffs will prove that. I hope I’m wrong but I don’t think so.

    I think there is too much around SF and NO playing the packers and beating them.i am a packers fan and i dont hate either team but people need to realize that we already beat NO with our awful defense,but NO also has a horrible defense.so i think its jus going to be who executes better and which defense will make the big stops when they count. Now as for these SF 49ers, no doubt they have a great defense, but their offense can not really put up points. They also have not played against a great quarterback and a great offense.for example, AARON RODGERS & THE PACKERS, DREW BREES & THE SAINTS, or TOM BRADY & THE PATRIOTS.So lets just all sit back and enjoy the rest of the season and see what happens.GO PACK GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Has everyone forgotten what happened last year? We had lost 6 games, not 1. There were gaps in major positions both offensively and defensively. Yet, we won the Super Bowl!

    Let’s get everyone through the Lions game healthy. Then let’s pour the coal on and show everyone what having heart is all about. Go Packers!
