Packers will/must win versus Bears

When last we spoke on this blog, the Packers were reeling. Nothing was working offensively, nor had it for the previous three weeks. Aaron Rodgers appeared off and we weren't quite sure why while the receivers continue to befuddle us with their inability to get open. Fast forward to the here and now, things have changed to a certain extent. No, the offense has found itself entirely as mistakes continue to be made, but they did rediscover at least a portion of themselves this past weekend at Minnesota. Eddie Lacy was once again running the ball successfully while Rodgers was able to connect with some of his targets for big gains and touchdowns. It was a welcome site for all Packer fans as it provided something to build off. Now comes Thursday Night Football and a short week for the Pack. Once an afterthought, the Bears come to town having played much better football of late and there's no doubt they'd like nothing more than to spoil the homecoming of Brett Favre and Bart Starr. Will they? I seriously doubt it? I've been wrong in my pick of the Packer game each of the last two weeks but this one seems like a lock. There are finally some things going right in Title Town and I would seriously doubt they'll allow their hated rivals to spoil the special atmosphere. Add in Dom Capers' unit -- which has performed admirably the last two weeks, especially against Minnesota -- and you have the makings of a big Packer victory to maintain control in the the NFC North. And let's face it ... anything less on Bart Starr's final trip to Green Bay would be downright tragic.

Marques Pfaff's Bio
As someone who grew up in Holmen, Wisconsin, I – like most people in this state – have spent a good portion of my life rooting for every team that calls the Badger State home. As a kid, I would make the weekly, fall pilgrimage from Holmen to Madison to take in Badger football games with my dad at Camp Randall Stadium. I was there when Jump Around debuted, I was there when Jamar Fletcher picked off Joey Harrington three times in a win over Oregon, and I was there when Ron Dayne broke college football’s all-time rushing record. They were some of the most exciting experiences of my youth and may likely contributed to my choosing UW-Madison for college. While there, I was given the opportunity to walk on to the football team. I didn’t stay long but I did have a chance to put the pads on and run out of the Camp Randall Stadium tunnel. It’s something I’ll never forget.

It was during my college days that a passion for radio would also develop. After spending three years working for WIBA and WTSO in Madison, I took my first full-time job with WSSP radio in Milwaukee. This was a tremendous experience as I had a chance to cover virtually every team I loved watching. That said – despite my love for all things radio – I was offered a great opportunity in Las Vegas to work in public relations for many of the major sporting events that came to town. I took it and would wind up spending the next six-and-a-half-year in the desert. Many of those years saw me working in college athletics at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas (UNLV). It was a tremendous experience and one that will always lead to me referring to Las Vegas as my second home.

All of these experiences have contributed to my perspective on sports and I look forward to sharing that with you every day from 2 to 5 p.m.
