A singular game in December.Cold wind snaps into you like a Suh kick to the man zone, you awake to find yourself at a tailgate of epic proportions, as human heart attacks lumber through the parking lot of Lambeau field preparing themselves for the game by drinking a supertanker of beer and washing it down with cheddar cheese.Make no mistake, these fans don't like each other and neither do these teams.This is Packers vs. Lions son, and you best be ready for a game. The Pack currently owns a 20-0 record over the Lions in Lambeau (it was 1991 when Eric Kramer out-dueled Mike Tomczak in the last Lions victory). Packers vs. Bears gets more press, but this is no less the bloodbath. With that, I give you three bold predictions for Sunday's hammer party.The Packers will commit to the run early. And fail like Jessica Simpson at a physics symposium. Lets just put it simply. Alex Green is not very good despite Mike Mcarthy feeding him the ball like it was a Nathan's hot dog and he was one of those psychotic speed eaters.Ryan Grant was brought back to football life when the block of ice he was frozen in was thawed out by Kurt Russell. Suh is a walking anger management billboard, Fairley can't decide if he wants to get arrested for pot or booze and Vanden Bosch sacked his daughter in a backyard pick-up game but they are all good and getting better this year.I just don't like Green's chances against this cavalcade of outpatient lunatics.Calvin Johnson will get his. He simply destroys people, most specifically people in Packer uniforms. Last time these two teams met (in Detroit) Megatron went five for 143 and a score. The last time he was in Green Bay -- 244 yards. That's like eight games for Larry Fitzgerald this year.I know, no Ryan Broyles and no Titus Young will make it difficult to produce. Titus Young is the stiff of stiffs, the poster boy for wasted talent. His butt should be on a milk carton with the caption "have you seen this waste of space and volume?"Calvin Johnson is from Cybertron and on his off time fights Optimus Prime for galactic dominance.Despite getting sacked four times, Aaron Rodgers will pass for 300 yards and three touchdowns. One of these scores will be to Greg Jennings.This will signify the return of the Packers' offense to dominance, and they will roll through their opponents in the next three weeks.Then they will lose in the playoffs. But Rodgers will prove that he is the best quarterback out there, again.Rodgers and the Packers will make it 21 straight on the frozen tundra no matter what the Mayan calendar says.
