I agree with most of it and even the score is spot on! Only you have the teams backwards...DBAppraiser said:Sportjet, the week of rest is kind of a mixed bag. While it helps some players heal up it also can lead to "rust". In the case of the Hawks, since they didn't suffer any serious injuries this weekend the week off for the Packers isn't really a factor. Home field advantage at Lambeau Field is worth probably 7 pts so to overcome that the Hawks defense will have to generate a couple of turnovers that we will have to turn into at least 10 points. The real key to this game will be if the Hawks can get defensive push up the middle in Farve's face they will be in good shape as Farve will give you an interception or two per game. HE likes to throw down the field and will take risks. In the Dallas game they tried to exploit Kenny Hamlin and others deep and were not successful. When GB went back to ball control passing they were much more effective. These teams are very similar to one another, their defenses are ranked very near one another and both teams prefer to throw versus run the ball. However, I do feel that our linebackers and secondary are a little better than the Packer's. Hasselbeck has to play much better this week and control his emotions particularly early in this game. If he does, the Hawks will be in good shape. My prediction: Hawks 24-Packers 21.
