The Packers looked good yesterday handling a poor Lions team. While fans shouldn’t get overly excited about this kind of a victory, one important thing happened: the Packers handled a team they should handle. One the keys to being a championship team is being able to beat up on weak teams. Teams on the rise who aren’t at the championship level, often struggle here and there in games they should win. Not the Packers of 2007.
I think it was also functional for our back-up players to have the opportunity to play in a real game in case they are thrust into action in the playoffs. Tramon Williams once again looked good, as did Koren Robinson and Bubba. I think the biggest play of the game though, may have been Jon Ryan’s 73 yard punt that was downed at the 1. That was huge for his confidence and hopefully it will serve as a reminder to him that the Bears game was an aberration and that he is actually a good punter.
