Week 10 Predictions: Green Bay Packers at Tennessee Titans

Shawn (4-3, 2-4-1 ATS): Last week I was in a land without internet, believe it or not, such a dreadful place still exists, and thus I failed to post a prediction. As it turns out, like the Cleveland Browns on bye week, I won by not having the opportunity to lose.

I laugh at the talk around town for a couple weeks now about how the Green Bay Packers continue to search for their identity, like they were Jason Bourne after washing ashore. No, actually, I would say the Packers definitely have an identity. They just won’t admit it to anyone.

They are 9-11 in their last 20 games counting playoffs. They are 4-4 at the halfway point this season. They are inconsistent, typically failing to play a full four quarters. They are capable of scoring on offense when in rhythm, and they are also capable of complete ineptitude. They have scored one touchdown all year in the third quarter while the defense has regularly imploded in the second.

In other words, they are mediocre. Think of the Detroit Lions and San Diego Chargers and you are in the right ballpark.

They are a mediocre team with a good quarterback, who is great upon occasion. You add your typical slew of injuries to the mix, and you have a really unpredictable unit.

I have been leaning towards the Tennessee Titans all week. They are about equally mediocre, but they are at home and likely on the ascent. The Packers are on the other end of the scale. Something makes me think the Packers might be ready to let the plug out of the bottom of the tub completely.

As it turns out, I’m not ready to go there yet. The Packers might be on the road, but it is Nashville. There will be nearly as many Packers fans as Titans fans there. This is probably the easiest game left on the schedule for the Packers. If they lose this one, they likely end up worse than even 7-9, and I just can’t see that happening. Not yet.

I think a big factor in changing my mind is that both Randall Cobb and Ty Montgomery will be a full go for this game. You can forget about the last two games. Without a slot receiver to go to and pick up first downs, the Packers were down to throwing Richard Rodgers the ball, with inevitable results.

But with Montgomery around to run it and Cobb as a reliable outlet in the passing game, and against a Titans’ secondary that is the weakest part of their team, I think the Packers’ offense can ultimately outscore the Titans.

The Titans will be able to run the ball and put up some points against the Packers’ defense. But it won’t be enough.

Recent history notwithstanding, I like the Packers to cover the points on the road.

Packers 31, Titans 27

Monty (4-4, 1-5-2 ATS): Well, shitballs!

I am terrible at trying to forecast this team. This team just might be terrible. Therefore, I am going to keep it short and sweet.

I think nothing of these Green Bay Packers. They can probably go fuck themselves.

But they can’t go fuck themselves just yet.

They have to win this week first.

Packers 24, Titans 17

    Should have gone with your instinct Shawn. This team fucking sucks. I am done even giving a shit about them. I hope they lose out. PF4L, i am sorry I doubted you. I just wanted to be an optimist and wanted to believe in them all I could.

    Holy shit, this team has lost it’s fight. You get punched in the face, at home, by Indianapolis… you would want your team to show some resolve on the road the next week. Not get fucking rolled in the first quarter.

    The Titans are currently on pace for 900 yards. I just don’t know what to say anymore.

      They are awful. This is literally the worst packers team I have seen since 05

    Hundley time in the second half

    1. PF4L November 13, 2016

      Rodgers didn’t give up 35 points in the 1st half.

      I think Rodgers is playing pretty damn well.

      1. PF4L November 13, 2016

        But then again the Packers could get back within 3 with 30 seconds left in the 4th quarter, and we’ll get an article how Rodgers is a POS because he couldn’t come back and win in the 4th quarter.

      2. Kato November 13, 2016

        Not necessarily a statement of Rodgers playing badly, more a statement of the packers being blown out and not exposing him to unnecessary hits.

        1. PF4L November 13, 2016

          It’s all good Kato. I’m emotionless about all this, just making commentary. Sometimes things have to get worse, before they get better as the means to a better end. I’m cool with that.

    McCarthy and Zook go for onside kick, this genius “trick” move cost a td while Quentin Rollins decided it was a good time to take a nap during Tajae Sharpe’s 33 yard td catch.

    For the love of god, just put Hundley in at this point. This game is over. The packers defense out them out of the game in the first quarter

    Well, DeMarco Murray wrecked your defense. I said it in my last comment, the Packers run defense (and defense in general) is a fraud. Aaron Rodgers is as overrated as any player in the entire league. Mike McCarthy is a bad coach. Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb just aren’t as good as people hype them up to be.

    The Green Bay Packers are a joke and I’m loving every minute of it.

    Also, how are your Vikings doing, Killer? They are a dumpster fire. Can’t beat anybody now. Dare I say that my Lions are going to win the division? Could happen.

    Last thing, I just love seeing Rodgers whine and act like a bitch. Every ball that wasn’t completed today, he threw his hands in the air like there should have been a flag. What a baby.

      ^^^^ This is what happens when a Lions team is one game over .500. Which for a Lions fan, is almost as good as winning the Super Bowl, or a Division banner. The Lions fans will crow in jubilance, and why not, they’ve earned it? The Lions are 5-4.

      In their spare time, Lion and Viking fan’s enjoy taking a tour bus to the Packer Hall of Fame, to pose with and take pictures of our multiple Lombardi trophy’s, Knowing that maybe one day, in the next 10, 20, 30, 40 years or so, they might even win one of their very own, maybe.

      Bwahahahahaha
