The price on the Packers has been dropping all week long, and we aren’t all that sure that it is justified, especially now that the number is down to just seven. For all of you teaser plays out there, this might be a game that you want to look into. The Redskins are going to be playing on a short week against a team that is better than it was made to look last week against the 49ers. QB Aaron Rodgers and the gang really couldn’t stop QB Colin Kaepernick last week, knowing that they were so focused on trying to not get burned by the read option. Now, there is no doubt that there will be more throwing the football in this one, and Head Coach Mike McCarthy knows exactly what to be looking for.
But the real concern that we have here is with Washington. As we already mentioned, the Redskins played on a short week last week, and their defense has to be gassed after chasing around QB Michael Vick and the Philly offense for 53 plays in the first half. The offense clearly isn’t good enough to do some serious damage at this point, as QB Robert Griffin III is really held back with his knee. Can he really go at it full bore with LB Clay Matthews trying to run him down and make some big time hits? That’s the big time question that we have at this point, and until we can see RG3 use his whole arsenal of skills, we are always going to remain pessimistic. Green Bay is definitively the better of these 0-1 teams in our eyes, and we think that it is going to blow the Redskins out of the water in this one on Sunday.
