We are fortunate enough to root for a franchise that has had a number of signature wins over the years. Many in the playoffs, true, but significant and memorable. I count among those that time we went into San Francisco in the playoffs and Craig Newsome and Wayne Simmons kicked Steve Young's butt, or the time on the way to the Super Bowl where we flew to #1 seed Atlanta and Aaron played what Mike Ditka insisted was the best game by a QB he ever saw, on the way to a championship belt.
I even count last year's close opening day win over the Bears as a signature win, Aaron crowing afterward "We have a defense."
This Sunday night, we will witness another. I expect the talking heads to go on and on about the Pack being the inferior team, not being for real, flawed defense, etc. But what I saw last night was a second game in a row where Drew Brees showed his age and a Defense that we can work over. Yes, they have weapons, but I'll take Ty Montgomery replacing Michael Thomas.
Still it will be close, but I see us closing it out with a long time consuming drive late in the fourth quarter, Jamaal Williams capping it with a rushing TD and the Pack winning 45-34. King will get an INT, Lazard another TD catch, Adams over 100 yards.
