    Official Ravens Week

    Tom Silverstein @TomSilverstein
    Former #Packers long snapper Brett Goode in Green Bay today. Likely he'll be signed if he checks out physically.

    Also a reminder that one of my favorite Packer wins was against the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens in 2001, 31-23.

    Elvin Grbac was their new QB and this was widely seen as shoring up the only major weakness the Ravens had. Randall Cunningham was on that team too.

    Freeman had a TD and nine catches in his "find hole in zone" career era. Bubba Franks had 3 targets, 2 catches and 2 TDs in his block, fall down, standup, catch TD pass stage of his career. I am not kidding, that was the play call, and it was the most effective red zone play call for about 4 years.

    Ahmad Green had the most effective 20 carry, 54 yard performance ever. Favre had a passer rating of 137 against one of the best Ds in the League. The Packers consistently passed on their base defense and ran when the Ravens put their pass rushers in the game for the fat boys, Sam Adams and Tony Siragusa. That defense was loaded.

    I think that was a signature win in the Mike Sherman era, correct?

    I think it's funny to watch us as Packer fans overreact one way, then another. On Sunday morning we - myself included - were debating the merits of firing Capers, of tanking to get a better pick, of cleaning house altogether. By Monday morning, we were calculating the Packers' playoff chances - this year.

    I am going to try to view this season through the lens of narrative - what will the story be this year, besides Rodgers's injury? I will be curious to see if and how Hundley develops as he plays more, which players step up, whether the defense can stop a decent passing game at all, and so on. Should be interesting, especially regarding Hundley's development and the development of the rest of this year's rookie crop.

    I also think that the Damarious Randall story is interesting - he's actually playing pretty well these days.

    If only they could rush the passer.

    I don't expect much, but will follow with interest and, I hope, less frustration and anger than I felt after the Lions game.

    There is some hope in the coverage. Randall, King and Jones all seem to be capable of playing zone.

    If someone could teach House and then find a pass rusher ...

    another dicey game that could go either way at any point. believe it or not the Packers have better o and d numbers than them although the numbers under Rodgers skew those ratings. their qb is better than ours so there's the 2 point favorite the ravens are.

    I have just got to turn off auto correct and live with the normal typos. Stunned it left Grbac spelled that way.

    Mike McCarthy on Hundley hamstring injury: He'll be a full participant today.

    @RobDemovsky
    Mike McCarthy said he's hopeful the Packers will have Ty Montgomery available this week after he reinjured his ribs on Sunday. "We'll see what today brings," McCarthy said. "We don't really have a set plan for what he's going to do today."

    McCarthy on Hundley's finish: It's confidence all the way around. You have to have big plays. What he did at the end was huge.

    The call from Belichick hasn't come in yet.

    I am sure they are just waiting for them to either need the spot or confirm his surgery date.

    They are experimenting with a REALLY tight tape job.

    Unfortunately this feels like a Ravens "get right" game.
    Swede: My expertise in this area is extensive. The essential difference between a "battleship" and an "aircraft carrier" is that an aircraft carrier requires five direct hits to sink, but it takes only four direct hits to sink a battleship.
