For the Green Bay Packers to have a chance to win against the Cowboys on Sunday, I figure they need to be able to do the following:

Stop the run.  Seeing as Dallas has the triple threat of Marion “I Must Break You” Barber, Felix Jones and Tashard Choice, each one likely better than Ryan Grant, that’s probably not going to happen.

Stop the pass.  So long as Roy Williams continues to do his best T.O. impressions, this might be possible.

Keep Aaron Rodgers upright.  Against DeMarcus Ware.  Pbft!  Keeping Aaron Rodgers conscious might be a more attainable goal.

Establish the run.  I can’t even talk about the Packer running game anymore without my eye starting to twitch.

Get Rodgers to deliver more accurate passes while he runs for his life and holds onto the ball too long.

Get Packer receivers to catch the mutherluvin’ balls that are thrown their way.

Improve our return game.

Lock down kick returns, allowing no more than 20 yards in return yards for any one kick.

If the Packers can do all that, they have a shot at winning on Sunday.

In other words, we’re screwed.
