NFL  > Green Bay Packers  > Packers vs. Saints (10 things the Packers need to Win) PT.2

The last link I posted went bad (F'n .com cr@p), so I'll just post it up straight:

Now, here are 10 things the Packers have to do to beat the Saints.

1. Protect Rodgers???He???s the Packers??? star and the star must be protected. That???ll be a constant for every game, but it???ll be especially true for this game.

2. Stick like glue???That???s what Packers defensive backs do to opposing wide receivers, and it???ll never be more important than it will be on Thursday, against a quarterback that likes to throw short. You don???t beat Brees by giving big cushions.

3. Block Shaun Rogers???He???s a big addition to the Saints defense. When his size has been too much for opponents to handle, he has been as disruptive as any interior defensive lineman in the game.

4. Run at the ends???It???s better than running at Rogers and Sedrick Ellis in the middle.

5. Get in Brees??? face???He???s on the short side. Pressure up the middle forces him to throw outside the numbers.

6. Make big plays on defense???Brees threw 22 interceptions last season; it was the second-most in the league.

7. Use the no-huddle???To up the tempo and create energy.

8. Feed off the crowd???Lambeau Field will be on fire on Thursday.

9. Look at the schedule???It says 2011; this is a new season.

10. Play like champions???The world will be watching. They wanna see the Super Bowl-champion Packers. Show ???em who you are.
