The Packers are in trouble this season, they have no defense or running game. This team should be a Super Bowl contender, but they have too many questions.
After an average Thanksgiving week of picks I'm sitting at 114-63. I need to step my game up as we sprint to the postseason.

GREEN BAY, Wis. Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson will remain on injured reserve for the rest of this season after undergoing surgery Wednesday.
Benson initially was placed on Green Bay's injured reserve Oct. 10 after a Lisfranc foot injury, but the team designated him for return under the NFL's new rule. Under this rule, Benson had to sit out six weeks of practice...

For a guy who does his best work in the air, Aaron Rodgers is spending way too much time on the ground.
The reigning NFL MVP has been sacked 37 times, more than any other quarterback in the league. He's taken more hits in the first 11 games than he did all of last season (36 sacks), and is on pace to topple the career-high 50 sacks he took in 2009.
And the Green Bay Packers...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Don't expect to see Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers still sporting a thick moustache Sunday, on his 29th birthday, when he takes the field to face the Minnesota Vikings.
Rodgers, who has been growing a moustache all month to help raise awareness of prostate cancer as part of Movember, plans to shave it as soon as the calendar turns to December.
For some fans, it’s been rather frustrating to see all those Greg Jennings Old Spice commercials and not see the star receiver on the football field.
Due to a variety of injuries, it’s been since September 30th since Jennings saw live action for the Green Bay Packers.
With his expected return to the gridiron this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings, Old Spice’s official facebook...
Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will miss his fourth consecutive game Sunday against Minnesota. He's been dealing with a hamstring issue.Fantasy Spin:Green Bay was hoping Matthews would be fully recovered but apparently he's still in some pain. This is great news for the Vikings' offense.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews is unlikely to play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings due to a hamstring injury that is still bothering him.
"I think it would be a stretch for (Matthews) to play in the game," coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday. "I had a chance to watch Clay go through rehab today. Talking with him, he wants the opportunity...
So in an effort to forget about the Packers dismal showing against the Giants, I instead decided to analyze something completely different, namely the first and only pass that one Graham Harrell has thrown in the National Football League. Some of you might know but Harrell was the only backup quarterback in the NFL who had never thrown a pass in a game (though it has to be said...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) Kevin Greene is among those who miss not having Clay Matthews on the field for the Green Bay Packers.
Greene just doesn't want the star linebacker to be rushed back from a hamstring injury.
''I want Clay back as soon as he is 110 percent healthy,'' said Greene, the Packers' outside linebackers coach. ''I don't want him...
Eden Prairie, Minn. -- For Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder and Green Bay strong safety Morgan Burnett, the Florida State-Georgia Tech rivalry will extend beyond Saturday night's Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.
Ponder was an FSU quarterback when he first faced Burnett and the Yellow Jackets in 2008. The two will meet again during the FOX America's Game...
