I HATE the bye week so I'm eager to get some discussion going for this week's upcoming game.

Saw some stats posted today about Green Bay that have me slightly optimistic. Key word - slightly. They are at the bottom of the league in rushing defense, and their rushing offense isn't much to write home about. Two things I draw from that are hopefully Miami is forcing Rodgers into 3rd and long situations and keeping him off the field with long, grinding drives.

Rodgers' two mediocre-ish games came against teams with a decent pass rush (SEA & DET). He's been sacked 12 times this year so I'm hoping Miami can get to him at least 3 times and pressure him a whole heck of a lot more. He hasn't thrown a pick since week 1. His last two performances were dominant but came against cupcake defenses.

On offense my hope is that Miller and Thomas can grind the heck out of GB's front 7. There were reports today that Moreno practiced but I'm not getting my hopes up yet. If the o-line can keep Tannehill clean then I'm hoping for a very efficient game from him...and don't forget Mike Pouncey is coming back to help with that.

Green Bay is currently favored by 3 in the spread. I do not expect a high scoring game and think Vegas is correct on this one. This game has the feel of a 23-20 final score. Then again, the Oakland game had the feel of a 16-13 score before kickoff. I'm hoping GB is a little too cocky and comes out flat.

This could be a game that sets the tone for the remainder of the season. Miami has hit some big highs and bad lows already this season. Beat a legit team with solid all around play and continuing improvements from your young QB and hopefully that equates to a multiple game winning streak.

GO FINS

I watched them vs Minn. Minn held there offense and made them punt a lot. I know it was a blowout but the turnovers killed Minn. A couple of things that Jammer said, there rush D sucks, but they can rush the ball if needed. I think their rush offense is weak casue you have Rodgers at the helm and he throws period. Lacy also isn't the same back after his concussion. It is gonna be a scorcher Sunday in MIA. We need to keep Rodgers off the field and control the clock. We are also going to have to hit on big plays which means the OL must hold up and RT must hit Wallace and Co. deep.

And with that being said, I am going to lay some money down on the Pack. That line is too good to ignore.

Yeah, sorry jammer, but I'm thinking the same. I don't know as much of a "blowout", but I definitely see them winning by more than the spread. Smart money is without a doubt on Green Bay this week. I love games like this, because even if I lose money, Miami (more than likely) wins straight up with a spread that thin.

This is the type of game that we get up for and win at the end while we will lose to the Jags.

This could be true. They had to play catch up against both SEA and NYJ. The CHI game was a shootout early on.

The only way I see this as a blowout is if Miami is turning the ball over early.

The formula to win is run the ball and have Tannehill make the throws he's good at. Don't waste a bunch of deep passes to Wallace if the connection is not there. It has to be a clean game.

I didn't even factor in the weather. The potential is there for Miami to win this if they get GB's defense gassed.

Lets not forget that, at the very least, it sounds like Pouncey, Starks, Misi and Jones will all be back. Moreno might play as well.

I hate the bye weeks also, do they really do it to give players and teams time to heal or is it really for more airtime?

Do teams really like it since they adopted it?

some teams come out flat after the bye. We needed the bye for ailing injuries. We are very well coached, so we shouldn't come out flat.... :ann0y:

This is going to get ugly in a hurry. Jordy Nelson will probably have a multi-touchdown outing. Eddie Lacy has been doing OK as of late. Their defense isn't bad. (Don't start, it's an opinion, I have no PFF facts or statistics to prove it).

Packers 31
Dolphins 17

Well, first, its disruptive, we've never heard that teams really like it or that its helpful, and I saw what happened to us after our bye week last year.

For me as a fan, its confusing and its not fair to the history of football.

Teams in the 70's never had them and played 6 preseason games, and the Super Bowl Champs had to play the college Allstars to boot.

Best strategy would be to keep the ball on the ground and chew up clock. Keep the ball out of Rodgers hands.

So we shouldn't have a bye week because it's "unfair" to a bunch of men who played 45 years ago who didn't have that privilege....ok

17 - 13 Miami. Give this staff as great as it is 2 weeks to prepare and I would like our chances playing in Seattle. We protect our home turf. Tannehill outshines Rodgers. We are hitting our stride. Maybe when we blow out SD a month from now you will believe. Score will not even indicate the game. We will wack the pack. Super Bowl bus has new tires!

I'm not saying that, but we've never heard that it helps or benefits a team one way or another.

I have heard that taking 2 weeks before a Super Bowl game showed that historically certain teams got flat and got distracted.

But on a personal level, I don't like the delayed response as to how teams stand, as the weeks go bye.

It's like a delay in knowing and figuring out the standings, whereas before, we basically knew.

I don't like the byes is all.

Can the Phins get to Rodgers early? Pass rush is Miami's strength, so it is possible if they can contain Lacy. As others have said, Miami needs to run the ball to keep GB's offense on the bench. If there was ever a game Miami needed to jump out to an early lead, this is it.

I feel this is a very winnable game for us. The Vikings had a horrible defensive game plan against the Packers and were down at QB.

Was thinking about the same thing this morning on my ride to work, except I'm going Miami 27-23. I think Moreno/Miller/Thomas combine for a lot of carries and yards, probably a couple of TDs. I think Tannehill has a quiet, efficient type of game - 15/24 170 yds TD. The defense stifles the run and Rodgers, who is a bit cocky right now, gets off to a slow start.

Miami jumps to an early lead, Rodgers leads a comeback but falls short.

Imo this game will be keeping pace with Rodgers, after a shaky start to the season he has bounced back into his normal form, we are having some issues in coverage, that's a bad match up. There D isn't all that good so we may be able to keep pace.

Pass rush is the one of the keys to victory in this game for both teams.

All week i have been worrying about this game against Green Bay but toward the end of the week I've been getting a feeling that we will come out with a fire under our butts. Come out fast and not look back. it might be a dog fight but i have a feeling we will stay ahead through the majority of the game or keep it very winnable.

Its anyone's guess how it'll go but i rarely have an optimistic outlook or feeling on playing tougher teams but im getting it this week. Well, here's to hoping I'm right GO DOLPHINS :angry:

rs: WR Adams getting separation on tape
Aaron Rodgers says he's noticed rookie Davante Adams creating separation when reviewing the Packers' games on tape.
Adams hasn't quite had a breakthrough game yet, but it's coming. "Davante, he’s open on film a lot," Rodgers said. "He’s run a lot of good routes. He only had one catch last week, but if he stays confident and keeps making plays like he’s doing in practice, the ball is going to keep coming his way." Adams is still a boom-or-bust WR3, but could leap to WR2 status quickly if Rodgers begins trusting him more. Over the last two weeks, Adams has played 74 percent of Green Bay's offensive snaps. Jarrett Boykin (groin/knee) is considered "highly unlikely" to play Sunday against the Dolphins.

Does that mean Aaron Rodgers is missing an open receiver a lot?

That is probably why Rodgers only has about a 67% completion rate for the year.

Big game for Philbin............he's playing his old team.......you would like to think he'll devise a game plan to slow down Rodgers.........again, you would like to think.

Lot's of positives for the Phins.......four starters returning, playing off a bye week, home field advantage..........it's going to be hot for those boys up North. I like our chances, if the running game is going and it's at least tight going into the 4th.

Lazor and Philbin need two game plans. The first is the most obvious - RUN. Chew up the clock, wear out the defense, keep Rodgers off the field and the Packers' points to 17 or less.

But if Rodgers comes out dealing than Lazor needs to have a shootout back up plan, and not just one that says okay lets pass down field. Find the easiest passes for Tannehill to execute and use it in a hurry up offense. I realize that is counter to keeping the ball out of Rodgers' hands but the Miami passing offense hasn't found a ton of success in standard, slow formats.

Actually, it would be nice to alternate these game plans to both keep up in a shootout and have the ability to slow it down if necessary.

Of course there is a whole 33% better he could be doing.

I will DVR the game, but I don't think I am going to like it.
