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.
A player added or lost weight in the offseason and will be more effective as a result! DRINK!
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.”
If you’re in the neighborhood, you can meet Lynn Dickey today at the Northern Wisconsin State Fair.
Looking good, Jerry!
