NY Daily News:
It will be harder this time for Eli Manning and the Giants at Lambeau Field, even if the weather conditions aren’t supposed to be. It is a better Packers team this time and a better Packers quarterback. The Giants go up against 15-1 this time at Lambeau, go up against Aaron Rodgers having as great a regular season as any quarterback has ever had, in Green Bay or anywhere else.
BEST OF MAXIM
Being both a big mouth and a football-obsessed member of the media for 18 years, I have spent a fair amount of time trying to figure things out in the NFL. Over 3,100 episodes of the Bob and Dan show since 1999 on Sportsradio 1310 the Ticket on Dallas airwaves at three hours per show has put us dangerously close to the Malcolm Gladwell "10,000" hour rule. That rule argues...
Archie is certainly willing to talk and this week he says his son wants to remain in Indy:
“Peyton kind of likes his roots in Indy,” Archie Manning said yesterday after watching his youngest son, Eli Manning, lead the Giants to a 37-20 Divisional victory over the Packers at Lambeau Field. “We’ll see what happens there. If that doesn’t work and he can get healthy we’ll...
If today’s game is anything like the Dec 4th meeting between these two clubs (or yesterday’s Niners-Saints game) make you have 911 on your speed dial. It won’t be for the faint of heart.
Our staff has some unique angles on the big showdown in Green Bay…..
Rich Resch: If Eli Manning and the Giants’ pass rush play their A-game…yada yada yada. You know the deal by now...
The 15-1 Green Bay Packers (who peaked in September-November) have indeed been exited from the NFL Playoffs by the New York Giants (who are peaking now), and Hakeem Nicks was indeed wide open on an end-of-half Hail Mary.
So much for the Green Bay dynasty; as former GM Ron Wolf would say, the 2011 Packers proved to be just a fart in the wind.
Deal with it.
The silver lining is...
Divisional weekend wraps up Sunday with two intriguing NFL betting matchups as the Baltimore Ravens host the Houston Texans and the Green Bay Packers host Eli Manning and the New York Giants. Here’s a look at some prop bets to consider at BOVADA as well as some NFL line movement and totals updates.
No. 3 Houston Texans at No. 2 Baltimore Ravens
If you’re going to adopt an elaborate celebration, don’t be surprised, or offended, if it gets thrown back in your face. That’s what Giants linebacker Michael Boley did after sacking Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers Sunday. Call it the belt celebration or discount double check, because Boley did the Rodgers move after recording a sack right before halftime, and also in the...
GREEN BAY — Aaron Rodgers had a nearly perfect season as the Super Bowl champion Packers nearly went undefeated. Just as Tom Brady had a nearly perfect season once, too.
0: The number of playoff games won by Caleb Hanie and Aaron Rodgers combined. 0 %: The worth of the Packers having gone 15-1 and winning the NFC North. 4%: The perceived talent gap between the Bears and the Packers which Ted Phillips used as his reasoning for the letting go of Jerry Angelo. Apparently... Read more »
Longest pass completion by Aaron Rodgers a mere 21 yards? You got to be kidding. No receiver had more than 40 yards. Huh? This dominance wasn’t all pass-rush related, even though there were four sacks (two apiece by Michael Boley and Osi Umenyiora). Coverage down the field was...
