Packers XLV

20-20 Vision: Packers Will Handle Chiefs for 20th Straight Win

Posted December 17th, 2011 @ 05:12pm

The Packers will play their final road game of the season on Sunday when they visit Arrowhead and the Chiefs. With the final two regular season games at Lambeau and homefield advantage just one victory away, the Pack will look to take care of business in Kansas City and finish the season a perfect 8-0 on the road for the first time in franchise history.

Monday's firing of head coach Todd Haley was the exclamation point on a very disappointing season, which imploded before it started when the Chiefs lost their best player on each side of the ball for the season: running back Jamal Charles and safety Eric Berry. The injury to Matt Cassell a month or so ago ended all hopes of a late season surge. The Tyler Palko has come to a merciful close and the Pack will face Kyle Orton for the second time this season.

Orton will try to breathe life into the 31st ranked offense--an offense that has scored a grand total of two touchdowns in the past four games. Their starting wideouts haven't scored in eight weeks. And Dwayne Bowe is a Pro Bowl talent at that position. The problem begins on the offensive line--they can't run block and they can't protect the quarterback. Orton is nursing an injured finger which he hurt on his very first snap at QB for the Chiefs.

Where the Chiefs excel is on defense, and you can bet they will play their best game of the season on Sunday, since their coach, Romeo Crennel, is now the man in charge. They have an elite pass rusher in Tamba Hali and young Justin Houston looks like a third round steal (some thought the Packers might grab him in the first or second round). It gives them a one-two punch and a challenge for Newhouse and Lang on the left side of the line.

With James Starks and Brandon Saine both listed as questionable, the running load might fall to Ryan Grant and John Kuhn. Expect most of the yardage to come through the air. The biggest question is how the ball is spread around in Greg Jennings' absence. Look for James Jones to step up and Jermichael Finley to get more targets. Randall Cobb will also become a bigger part of the offense. You get the feeling they've been saving him for just this opportunity.

Temperatures should be in the low to mid-50s and you can bet the place will be rocking. I've never been to a game there, but those that have will tell you it rivals Lambeau with its passionate fan base and ambience. Despite a 5-8 record, the Chiefs have played hard--showing their toughness in a narrow loss to the Steelers a couple of weeks back and they will play hard for Crennel.

The Pack would wrap up the #1 seed in the NFC with a win and, of course, would win for the 20th straight time, one behind the 2002-03 Patriots for the all-time record. This one might not be real easy--it will not resemble the Raiders game. I think the Chiefs can disrupt the Pack with a good pass rush and solid corners. But I see the Pack taking charge in the second half and heading home for a five week stint at home in Titletown.

With KC lack offense and ability to take the ball away I still see more than 24 points. Think short fields and momentum. Remember last weeks failed fake punt by the Raiders? Don't be surprised if KC tries something similar, especially if they some how manage to score early.

There's not considerably to say about this shop but one particular term...lovely. Once you enter the retailer, you're reminded as to why they have some of the greatest designer bags on the market. I say this because the store's interior brings a basic decor designer luggage, similar to no make a difference how many new luggage/firms hit the vogue scene, the monogram luggage will often have that classic flair. I arrived by this place to see the inside and just get an experience of the store ahead of I made a purchase for my darling girlfriend. She wouldn't at any time permit me to invest this considerably on her if I gave her a heads up, but a excellent female justifies it all. I will buy a bag for her from LV as long as they keep on creating delicious things. What I adore most here in comparison to other brands on 5th voie, and so forth...the customer service. I say louis vuitton bags since in comparison to the LV store positioned within Macy's at Herald Square, you are not dealt with like you don't belong simply because of pores and skin color. Indeed, I went there...I threw the "Race" card and for excellent purpose. Regardless how I carry myself or how my business has positioned me to gown, it seems security even now truly feel I don't belong. This is 1 of the motives I won't visit the thirty fourth Street place. I appreciate protection guards assuming how much I can pay for by the color of my skin, as opposed to what's inside of my bank account. http://www.louisvuittonqueens.com/louisvuittonbanner.jpg However, this area welcomed me with open arms and not like a 2nd rate citizen. Below, only my pounds matter, not the color of my pores and skin. And in the industry for designer goods, shouldn't that be the only issue of worry anyway? Immediately after creating my 1st go to right here in 2008, I can see why girls adore LV luggage and it's certainly why I will continue purchasing designer louis vuitton handbags for my girlfriend. Beautiful large keep!! Drool!! Also poor it isn't worth it for a Canadian to acquire right here. We get Louis Vuitton products for five-ten% less costly than US retailers. And having to pay duty is not well worth it possibly. But this flagship store is quite wonderful. They have all the wonderful ostrich leather-based goods. It really is comparable to the retailers in Hong Kong. My sister and I arrived in right here to get matching luggage and we felt as if were have been in a Chinese subway battling for an eggroll. Helpful salespeople, but its so crowded, that the line to buy was 15 minutes extended... we still left and will purchase them from LA. Also, there ended up no embossing or engraving services supplied like the stores in California... peculiar. The assistance is phenomenal. The salesperson really did the finest he can to try out to accomodate. Despite the fact that the fit of my desires ended up being a bit way too big, I walked out happy and content. Fellas, I will notify you what - I hold my IRA with LVMH, final yr it confirmed louis vuitton small leather good fifty six%up. And here's the cause why. LV bags are state of the artwork. Absolutely, they appear overpriced but say that in ten, twenty, thirty several years (I guess you will nonetheless have your aged LV purse). No other model can conquer the quality. Located on the first flooring of Bloomingdales flagship store on Third Avenue (corner of East 57th Street), this Louis Vuitton boutique is one of the few consignment boutique areas that the manufacturer has located in a section retailer in the New York Metropolitan area (the other two places are Macy's Herald Square flagship store and Macy's Backyard City keep). Remarkable assortment, the boutique is really nicely held and stocked with the brand's well-known leather goods these kinds of as carry luggage, footwear, and eye put on. The capability to use one's in-home Bloomingdale's charge card adds extra factors to this area. Excellent to check out out if you're in the location and want to avoid the hordes of shoppers at Louis Vuitton's flagship keep at the corner of Fifth Avenue and East 57th Street. As for every this store, I selected it due to the fact I go there for al profits. Just kidding, there are no revenue ever. This is my preferred shop however. I wish the service arrived back again to the degree it was. There is definitely practically nothing I can say mistaken about this retailer! It truly is remarkable from display windows to louis vuitton sunglasses in side and environment which really sets the mood so high! Every single ground is twinkle in my eyes! I shopped right here for the initial time and super excited to turn out to be a family members member at L.V. (hehehe) The staffs are so specialist and not snobby which is the best point at a higher end store. Despite the fact that the area is crowded occasionally... what do you anticipate? it is L.V. right after all and the place is a super principal attraction spot!
