The Packers continue to be healthy as hell and everyone listed was in full participation on Friday. That didn't happen at any time during the regular season. Only CB Will Blackmon is listed as questionable, but the Packers did fine without him last week. CB Frank Walker played some last week when Seattle went with four wide receivers, but the Giants will probably not go with more than three at a time. It's a tough call to bench dime CB Tramon Williams since he has been playing so good lately.

The Packers are missing a couple of players who would start if not on I.R such as DT Johnny Jolly and RG Junius Coston, but the Giants loss of TE Jeremy Shockey is a huge blow for them in this game since the Packers have struggled against tight ends this season. Although Shockey only had a modest 5 catches for 60 yards in week 2, he was their leading receiver in that game. Despite Shockey's absence, rookie TE Kevin Boss has potential and his only catch against Dallas was a big one on 3rd down that set up the Giants 2nd TD of the game on the next play.
