    This is a game where I really, really wish we had a bruiser back. Not that there isn't a game I don't wish this, but considering the forecast, now would be a nice time.

    One for when we need two yards on third down that is what I call garbage yards.

    Same here.

    And the passing game really needs to focus on OD.

    I'm not worried about it. Rosenfails might throw better in bad conditions.

    You're assuming Schaub is going to get injured?

    Sage has led us to 2 TD's in the last 8 quarters when this offense was churning out 30 points a game earlier in the season with Schaub...enough of Sage please.

    The running game better show because the Packers are 27th in the league in rushing yards allowed.

    Slaton will be tearing up the snow and building snowmen in the endzone while the packers are still trying to catch up to him.

    Slaton is a big part of the rushing attach, but it sure seems like the ZBS is starting to click. Our record sure would be a lot different if the OL was clicking on all cylinders starting in week 1!!!!!

    Well, for the meatball game, I'm hoping MS and AJ have a career high day! I need the FF points!! SS can have his also, there's plenty of time to mix things up, if Kubes will have the balls to do it.

    VL will have a great day also. I just feel it!!

    Slaton ran all over the place when we played the first game. You guys have a great back there.
    However, we now know what he's capable of and I think we'll be more ready for him this Sunday.
    You guys might want to worry more about how you are going to protect Schaub or Rosencopter than how many yards Slaton will get.
    The fact that you guys have been playing solid ball as of late should make for a good game.
    Us Titan fans aren't underestimating you guys and I'm pretty sure Fish and crew aren't either.
