According to ESPN the Atlanta Falcons are sick and tired of hearing about the Green Bay Packers and the great James Starks. It seems the Falcons are trying to spin themselves into underdogs. Weird.
The Packers haven’t said a word this week other than saying they thought they could have won the first meeting of these teams. I have not seen the overconfidence from the Packers I thought I saw last week.
So which team is most scared? I have to think the Falcons. Why are they so worried about Starks? Why are they so testy? It’s very interesting. The Falcons are going to try punch the Packers in the mouth early. If Rodgers stays upright, running game or not, I like the Packers chances to win this one in the end.
I don’t think Starks will be much of of factor in this game, no Packers’ running back has had two good games in a row this year, including Starks. I think Jackson or Kuhn will end up with more big plays than Starks in a game I think Rodgers will be the star of.
I’m getting more nervous as I write this, can’t wait for Saturday.
Let’s get it on!
