    If the home team automatically gets 3 for being at home isn't this really 6.5?

    On a neutral field, yes.

    He also has a somewhat surprisingly low catch rate, particularly for a guy who doesn't really go deep that often. You'd prefer your #1 to be much more successful I think. His 57% catch rate is worse than every receiver ranked higher than him on the FO list except Brandin Cooks (54%) who gets thrown to way farther downfield on average. Jordy has a 71% catch rate and Cobb 73% by comparison.

    Obviously he's an athletic playmaker though if not as consistent as you'd like or a burner that can just flat out beat guys deep like some prototypical 1's such as A.J. Green
    i think his catch rate % is affected by Rodgers throwing him low percentage type passes. most of the long balls go to him, high passes, jump balls, etc. so he ends up with over-throws, defensed passes, and the occasional drop that everyone but cobb have. jordy and cobb get a lot of their catches during scramble plays.

    kinda concerned about this game. with the min qb/rb situation being unstable, min coming off a monday game, and with the Packers coming off such an emotional win here in dal, there might be a bit of a let down. Packers leadership needs to makes sure that doesn't happen. i've got a feeling this is going to be knock-down drag-out because the Packers will take a while to get serious.

    Most of the country sees the game. Thom Brennaman and Troy Aikman with the call. Buck must be doing baseball.

    I noticed in Michigan LP gets the Lions/Saints (Green) and UP gets the Packers. Is that always the case?

    BASTARDS! Someone changed the listing for the Philly area. I checked Monday night and my guide said Packers/Vikings. NOW, it has the Redskins/49ers.

    I would sit Montgomery for another week.
    It will be interesting to see if Bakh or Burnett plays.

    I would sit Montgomery for the next 14 games.

    I don't see a letdown. Packers lost there last year and I'm sure they haven't forgotten it. I do see a tough game though because they're facing a desperate opponent. If the Vikings lose, they'll be down 2 games to the Packers with a game yet to be played at Lambeau. Vikings have already lost at home to the Lions. They can hardly afford another home division loss. This is pretty much a must-win situation for them, and they'll play like it.

    Packers CB Kevin King has made progress through the concussion protocol, coach Mike McCarthy said. But no word on whether he's advanced enough to do some work on the practice field.

    McCarthy on Ty Montgomery: "The plan is to practice today and see how he progresses."

    David Bakhtiari is feeling better and looked good and practiced well yesterday, coach Mike McCarthy said. Could he play Sunday at Minnesota for the first time since his Week 1 hamstring injury? "We'll see what he's able to do today," McCarthy said.

    Listen, I honestly think they should rest Monty and his ribs. Those need to be healed up good for the stretch run. Even if he is RB #2 or third down guy, they will need him down the road.

    And my advice is not because I just picked up Aaron Jones in FF.

    You gotta get somebody in eastern WI a Sling Box so you can stream the Packers games from his cable/satellite service via the internet. We get all the Packers games not shown nationally this way (plus Brewers, Bucks and Badgers).
