What IS working is the quick routes in...

Perhaps the move has been made, but...

Minus their top running back, top corner and franchise quarterback (I have no idea who’s wearing No. 12 these days), it’s difficult to imagine the Packers getting to the postseason without a victory tonight. Heck, they might not get there...

The Green Bay Packers surprised the globe Monday by agreeing to a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs, netting running back Knile Davis. Talk about a win.
