Would be nice to have an effective run game against them, even if averaging around 3.5 yards a carry, setting up favorable down in distance, just don't want to see us with like 8 carries for 14 yards be halftime or something like that.

Denver plays a lot of man, wouldn't be surprised if ARod picks up multiple first downs with his legs unless they go full blown contain/spy rush.

No problem. I think we all need the return to normalcy.

By "normalcy" do you mean you're willing to take over weekly GDT duties on a permanent basis? If so, :AOK :AOK :AOK !

I think time of possession will be a huge stat this game. Don't want to see our D tiring out and cramping up in that thin air.

Would really like to wear out their defense. Some long sustained drives on offense. Would love to have a large advantage in the time of possession category.

Their defense, the secondary in particular, loves to gamble. Hopefully the self-scouting McCarthy's staff usually does during the bye was beneficial in developing some plays to capitalize on this tendency. Nothing would warm my heart more than seeing Talib burned for jumping a route or free-lancing.

I would hope that Montgomery and Cobb should have a few special running plays to offset the speed of Denver's LBs. I'd love to see them get many touches.

I expect a great turnout of Packer Nation too! Last time we were in Denver, maybe 55% of the crowd was wearing green n gold.

Oh yeah, Denver is doing as well as they are largely because they've had timely turnovers go their way. I don't see us doing that. We win.

That would be huge.

I also agree with those that have said TOP will be a big deal. I wonder if we slow the pace way down when we have the ball.

Both teams coming off bye weeks.

Broncos defense features NFL's best cornerback duo, Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr. Denver's defense is aggressive and knows how to force turnovers while conceding very few yards.

Can Packers 22nd ranked passing offense oust Denver's #1 passing defense?

Key matchup will be Packers' 8th ranked rushing offense vs. Broncos' 4th ranked rushing defense.

Denver's offense is vulnerable- #30 in rushing and #18 in passing. Packers defense has been strong against the run this season.

Thinking this could be the week that Manning's wheels really fall off. We'll keep our sack streak in line with an immobile, noodle armed quarterback at the helm.

We are really going to take off after the bye. I see everything start to come together and start opening up the play book on both sides. Our d will hit manning early and often. They don't score more then 14.

On O, I too would like to see Monty or Cobb working out of the back field. Make their linebackers have to chase them some. After watching the jets and pats both have success passing to backs, I think we have the better ones to throw too. Their corners are really good, but I don't think they are the best duo. Rodgers will show that. I'm feeling a strong 35 plus game. Go pack go will be chanted the next 2 weeks on enemy turf
