The Green Bay Packers look to bounce back from their Monday night loss when they play the New Orleans Saints this Sunday afternoon.
While the Packers players feel they were robbed of a win after the replacement referee fiasco, it is time to move forward and focus on the game and really focus on righting the ship.
So far this season the Packers offense has not been the same it was last season. The Packers are currently only averaging 19 points per game and Aaron Rodgers has only three passing touchdowns this season. While there is no direct answer for the answer to Green Bay’s struggles, this weekend against the Saints could provide a cure.
The Saints defense ranks 25th in pass defense and last in the league for rushing defense. They give up thirty-four points per game so the Packers should be able to find their offensive groove, if they don’t there could be serious concern in Green Bay.
The Packers defense will get another chance to shine, as the Saints offense isn’t what it ...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By CHRIS JENKINS AP Sports Writer For all the Green Bay Packers' complaints about a mistake by replacement officials that cost them a game Monday night, they probably wouldn't have been in position to lose on a last-second play if their offensive line had done a better job protecting Aaron Rodgers in the first half.
Going into Sunday's...
One day after venting on his radio show about the refereeing debacle that cost the Green Bay Packers a game in Seattle, Aaron Rodgers saved one last barb for the NFL.
Asked Wednesday about how the Packers were handling the aftermath of a Monday night loss that touched off a national firestorm about the league's use of replacement officials, Rodgers dismissed an NFL-issued statement...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When the referees walked into the Packers' locker room just moments after Monday night's now-infamous touchdown ruling in Seattle, linebacker A.J. Hawk thought it was going to be good news."I thought they were going to tell us we won the game, honestly," Hawk said Wednesday. "I think a lot of people thought that. But they were saying we had...
Week 4: Green Bay Packers vs. New Orleans Saints
This Week’s Pick
Green Bay Packers
Hell hath no fury like a scorned Aaron Rodgers. The Saints currently have the worst defense in the league but don’t underestimate Drew Brees. A fired up home crowd will also do the Packers favors
Will Aaron Rodgers finally get it going against the Saints?
As tough as it is, we need to move on and get back to legitimate football.
After the Green Bay Packers “loss” to fall to 1-2 against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night, the Packers somehow must regroup and play the New Orleans Saints Sunday at Lambeau Field. The Saints enter the game a somewhat surprising 0-3 on...
Week 4 QB Rankings
I have Aaron Rodgers ranked at number one this week as he faces a New Orleans secondary that has allowed 273 yards per game including 320 yards to RGIII in his NFL debut. Cedric Benson has become a major thorn in the side of Rodgers owners but Rodgers should still post a nice day in this one.
RGIII is unbelievable; he is essentially a low end QB1 and RB2 all rolled...
Posted by a staff contributor at 1070 The Fan, Bob Lamey has a much longer Afternoon Update from the first day of the bye in which he has audio from everyone from Colts QB Coach Clyde Christensen to Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers.
The last quarterback the NFL's lowest-ranked defense should want to face next?
But if the New Orleans Saints are going to rise from the league basement, finding a way to stymie the NFL's reigning Most Valuable Player is a must in Sunday's game at Green Bay (4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, FOX).
Among the biggest reasons for the Saints' 0-3 start is a defense...

I pushed hard all Summer for fantasy players to pass on QBs early, but to think that the top guys would struggle mightily was beyond even my wildest predictions. Will they continue to struggle? Will those that have overachieved early on, be able to continue their success?
Will Aaron Rodgers finish as a top 5 QB? (currently 20th in standard...
The New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers have been two of the NFC’s best for the past 3 years and have had some of the most explosive offenses in history, largely due to the play of their all-pro QBs, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. This year, the pass-happy offenses that lit up the league [...]

New Orleans Saints (0-3) at Green Bay Packers (1-2)
The Saints and Packers are a combined 1-5 three weeks in the season. Raise your hand if you saw that coming. I strangely see no hands.
