No Bishop, No Hawk and No worries?

So A.J Hawk and Desmond Bishop have been ruled out of this weekend’s game against the 6-5 New York Giants.

Obviously this is news that should alarm most Packer fans due to this game being our last legitimate challenge before the playoffs. Surprisingly I am not too worried, a feeling I haven't had for the majority of the season, but should I? Last week I saw more athleticism in our LB core, with D.J Smith and Robert Francois, then I have all season, watching Hawk and Bishop in the middle. Of course assignment miscues and miscommunication led to the Lions putting up 15 points in the fourth quarter (garbage time) but it’s not like that hasn’t been the case all season. I am not pretending that our defense will micrasously become invincible with backup linebackers startinf this weekend, but I just wanted an open discussion about what to expect this weekend. So.... what are your questions/concerns/comments/opinions on the matter?
