Charlie Peprah's play will be a key factor against the Giants on Sunday.
Hopefully the Packers didn’t spend their playoff bye week the same way I spent mine: Overeating, overdrinking and overtanning on the beach in Mexico. My cholesterol, blood-alcohol level and waist-line are at all-time highs right now.
If I had to play against the Giants on Sunday, they would have to hoist me into a wheelbarrow, push me onto the field, and dump me at the 50-yard line. My massive girth would probably manage to come up with at least one tackle. At the very least, the ballcarrier would be slowed by having to run around by Corona-filled belly.
But enough about me. I didn’t see any Packers players on the beach or in the bars so they were (probably) getting ready to play the Giants and win a Super Bowl.
This week’s stock report is different than the others. Since the Packers didn’t play, I’m listing five players that need to play at either a rising or steady level on Sunday. If each player does thi...

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy's eyes watered as he described the impact of the drowning death of the 21-year-old son of offensive coordinator Joe Philbin.
"It was a punch in the heart," McCarthy said before a brief pause. "It lets everybody know how fortunate we are to be where we are."
During a news conference Wednesday, McCarthy said Joe Philbin...
That is a heck of a regular season. But that is past everybody now and the real season starts this Sunday.
The Packers are a historic franchise and as nice as it is to have a great regular season the success of a Packers season is measured in their performance in the playoffs. The Packers had a lot to think about during the regular season during each game but the playoffs...
Tim Tebow isn’t the only guy getting worshiped in the NFL…The Green Bay Packers have been lost in the shuffle with all this Teblow hoopla — Jordy Nelson had a crazy year, and is definitely well deserving of the tribute. Can’t wait for this weekend’s games. -TO
Jordy Nelson Says Being White Receiver Helps
Aaron Rodgers Tribute Song
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he would have kept his foot on the throttle if his team had the chance to complete an undefeated season.
After winning their first 13 games, the Packers' bid to join the New England Patriots as the second team to go 16-0 in the regular season came to an end with a 19-14 loss at Kansas City.
Green Bay (15-1) wrapped up the No. 1 overall...
Coach Mike McCarthy fights back tears when talking about Joe Philbin and how the team has carried on without their popular offensive coordinator. Plus, Greg Jennings on guarantees, injury reports and more from Wednesday.
Police said Tuesday they have recovered the son of Green Bay Packers' offensive coordinator Joe Philbin from an icy Wisconsin River.
Whether or not we're paying enough attention to NFL offensive linemen, it's understood by most that angering these behemoths is a poor idea. But Packers NT B.J. Raji went ahead and did just that.
It's going to be very cold when the Giants stroll into Lambeau Field for a playoff date with a favored Packers team on Sunday afternoon.
That should sound familiar to those of you who followed the Giants on their run to the Super Bowl in 2008.
Before the Giants knocked off the Patriots, they had to beat the Packers under very similar circumstances to advance to the big game...
The Packers entered the year with what was being called the best group of receivers the NFL had seen since the 2000 St. Louis Rams’ “Greatest Show on Turf.”
The Giants on the other hand entered the year with question marks surrounding their passing game. Steve Smith had been their best receiver and had left New York for the “Dream Team.” Add the Jets signing Plaxico Burress...
