Addition to the Packers Roster

This weekend marks the return of Al Harris and safety Atari Bigby to the Packers roster. Both had been out with injuries, but now are cleared to play. Another important addition to the green and gold is Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy's newborn daughter Gabrielle a week ago. Talk about nice timing! Born the week of the bye - impressive!

The return of these two vip's will certainly compensate for any lost momentum the team suffered from the bye week. A healthy, complete team is a winning team. Take a look at the Dallas Cowboys and the New England Patriots.

With the Tennessee Titans' win Monday against the faltering Indianapolis Colts, it remains true that the Packers will be going in to Music City looking to give the team their first loss of the 2008 NFL Season. A feat that should be met, not easily, but the Packers could catch the Titans in auto-pilot, not taking the 4-3 Packers seriously. Titans' quarterback Kerry Collins hasn't been sacked in their last 5 games. I am hopeful guys like Aaron Kampman, Cullen Jenkins and Charles Woodson put and end to this streak.
The Fab Five receivers are all in for the game as well Sunday, lead by the ever-reliable Donald Driver. Should make some interesting play calling to keep the Titans on their toes.

What worries me is when guys come back from injuries, that they may end up disrupting the timing of the guys that were working with the reserves. Who knows, let's just hope that the Packers are 5-3 on Sunday night.
