Stopping the Eagles

With all the attenion on Michael Vick (deservedly so), the Packers do not want to overlook LeSean McCoy.  Forte tourched the Packer D last week when they were in nickel, and I just hope we don't see too much of that this week.  My fear is that in their desire to get pressure on Vick and force mistakes, that the dump offs to the back are open and the running game is ignored.

 

That being said, what do you think Capers dials up to stop the Eagles?  Will they go base 3-4 to open the game, or do they start out in nickel as they did vs. Chicago?  Will we see much psycho?

 

I expect the offense to click given the Eagles challenges defending the pass and that the Packers offense seem to be hot one week and cold the next (this is the hot week).  So I think the Pack can win a shootout.  But if the offense is cold, I'm worried about them winning a low scoring game.  Stopping their run may be key.

 

Thoughts?
