Cheese Curds, 7/13: Can the Packers finally beat the Falcons?

Getting Atlanta at Lambeau could be a just what the doctor ordered

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers’ last three games against the Atlanta Falcons have not gone so well, ranging from late game heartbreak to full game heartbreak with a little prime time embarrassment thrown in for good measure.

The common element in each of those games (other than Packers losses) is the location: each was played in Atlanta. This year, the Packers get the Falcons at Lambeau, and that could be a recipe for change.

Plus, Vince Biegel is bulking up, Burt Gustafson is dunking on Dan Devine, you can meet Lynn Dickey, and a certain newly-minted Hall of Famer just made an important addition to his wardrobe.

“The Falcons are 1-2 with Ryan at quarterback when the temperature dips below freezing,” writes Ryan Wood,” with one loss being by a razor-thin 22-21 margin at Lambeau Field in 2013.” A little late season home cooking could be just what the Packers need to stop a three game losing skid against their southern enemies.

Burt Gustafson was a fixture in Green Bay for nearly two decades, serving under Dan Devine, Bart Starr, Forrest Gregg, and Lindy Infante in a variety of coaching and personnel roles. In an interview with Packers historian Cliff Christl, Gustafson dishes on what it was like to work in a less-than-glamorous era in Packers history, including the disastrous Devine era. Burt, did Dan Devine even know football at all? “No. I don’t know if he knew it or didn’t know it, but if he knew it, he didn’t apply it.”
