The Joker couldn’t have said any better. Five=and-a-half hours from now the Minnesota Vikings and Brett Favre will enter Lambeau Field for the biggest regular season game in recent NFL memory. Certainly the biggest non-playoff game in head coach Mike McCarthy’s coaching career. A win by the Packers could be the turning point in the post-Favre era would certainly give Aaron Rodgers new respect from all his doubters. A loss and the Packers are right back to being an enigma, and worse yet, fighting for wildcard berth at best.
I’ll be there and doing my part by screaming every time Favre steps under center, making it just as difficult to operate as the Packers faced in Minnesota last month. The Packers are at home, they are getting better on both sides of the ball, and should be able to use the 12th Man to their advantage and garner a win. It is a going to be electric in Lambeau today and I can’t wait to get there.
By the way, Packers 24, Vikings 21.
