It seems like ages ago that the Green Bay Packers played the Detroit Lions in the most painful performance in recent memory. Sadly, with another six days until the next game, we have little to do in the early part of this week but look back and try to figure out what direction the Packers can go from here. Technically, their playoff hopes are still alive, but it will take a miracle at this point to get them back on track.
In any case, try to enjoy today's curds, and check the final blurb for a discount on our t-shirts for Cyber Monday.
