Ty & Bob Pod: Green Bay and San Francisco meet again

Also: Lions break the curse, Jerry Jones' Cowboys collapse (again), Jordan Love rolls and McGinn on ex-Packer Johnny Holland's fight.

No transcript...

Green Bay served as the party wrecker on “super” wild-card weekend. (Don’t forget that “super,” everyone. It’s very important.)

With one 48-32 smackdown, Jordan Love sent a message to the NFL and the Dallas Cowboys are again in disarray. Our Bob McGinn called the upset on the podcast. So how does NostraBob see Saturday night’s divisional playoff matchup with the No. 1-seeded San Francisco 49ers playing out? We differ on this outcome.

Of course, there’s plenty of Packers talk with a full personnel breakdown on both sides of the ball.

We also discuss:

  • Jerry Jones. Don’t hold your breath on Bill Belichick heading to Texas. As we wrote a couple years back, life is bizarre in “Jerry’s World.” Everything may make a little more sense in Big D with this three-part series.

  • The Detroit Lions win their first playoff game in three decades, and just their second since 1957. Jared Goff — blamed and banished by Sean McVay — earned a signature win. Here’s the December 2020 feature story mentioned on the pod. Goff’s comments then prove prophetic as the leader of these Lions. Defensively, the Lions have concerns. They’re grab-bagging for help on the defensive line, though Alim McNeill supplied a needed boost.

  • Tampa Bay is a 6.5-point underdog at Ford Field. You can count on the Bucs expecting to win on the road. Nice call, Carlton Davis.

  • McGinn explains what made Aaron Jones special in Green Bay’s win. He’s peaking.

  • The difference in Santa Clara for Green Bay? Pass rush. There should be opportunities to fluster Brock Purdy.

  • As always, we finish with a “McGinn Memory.” You’ll want to hear McGinn’s thoughts on Johnny Holland, the former Packer linebacker battling cancer. (As chronicled by the great Peter King.)

Thanks for listening and sharing, everyone.
