We'll jump right into the links this morning...
- Ugh. The Packers are in town. Remember in 2007 when the Pack was in town, and then cheesehead Brett Favre set the all time passing yards mark? Well that game was essentially a road game for the Rams as so many Green Bay fans made the trip, and I believe some of the players (most notably Steven Jackson) expressed some frustration towards the fans. Hopefully that doesn't happen this year, but as the Post-Dispatch surmizes, there's a good possibility it does.
- Mike Sando has some really fantastic Rams stuff up on his NFC West Blog. First, the some local chatter on the airwaves about the team, including an appearance by former Ram La'Roi Glover. Next, a fascinating breakdown of SJ39's 58-yard run against the Redskins. Knock on wood, the Rams haven't given the ball away through the air. Lastly, we have former Rams quarterback Trent Green calling the game against the Packers.
- As the New Richmond News reported, the Packers might be without two of their starting safeties come Sunday. You never wish for any player to get hurt, (okay, maybe a Matt Hasselbeck just a little bit) but this could be a blessing in disguise for the offense. Anything to get the passing game going especially is going to help this whole team put together a better effort.
- The Leader-Telegram has a piece up about Green Bay's shuffling offensive line needing a tune-up. With what the Rams have shown in pass rush so far, they might be in for a good game.
- The line for Sunday's home opener has opened up today at Green Bay -6 1/2.
- Don't forget to check out Acme Packing Company, the SB Nation site covering all things Packers, for more coverage leading up to the game.
Have a good Wednesday everyone. Go Rams!
