When the Giants came to Lambeau Field in Week 5, they probably didn’t even know Geronimo Allison’s name. The undrafted rookie receiver was still on the Packers’ practice squad. In his past two games, Allison has eight catches for 157 yards and a touchdown while playing for the injured Randall Cobb. Even if Cobb comes back this week from his left ankle injury, the Packers would be wise to keep Allison in their plans.

At 6-foot-3, he’s a matchup problem for shorter cornerbacks, and he has shown an ability beyond his years to grasp the Packers’ complex offense and win the trust of Rodgers. “He’s made plays consistently in practice over the last five or six weeks, which gives you the feeling that if he gets an opportunity or we need him to be in there, he’s going to make a play,” Rodgers said. “And that’s why he’s been a big part of our success and I’ve gone to him in certain situations, because I’ve seen it in practice.”
Momentum, sixfold. The Packers’ six-game winning streak can’t be dismissed as a nonfactor come playoff time. Veteran pass-rusher Julius Peppers said: “Momentum is a real thing, and we have a little bit of it.” A little? No one in the NFC went into the playoffs with a longer winning streak and no one has a quarterback who is as hot as Rodgers. He hasn’t thrown an interception in his past 245 attempts — the longest streak of his career — and he has 15 touchdowns without an interception in the past six games.
After pausing for a moment, Wake pulled back the curtain a bit. Now, letâ€™s keep it real: Itâ€™s sweet to prove so many people wrong.
Game Kids Troy Aikman Jersey â€œProbably four years ago, I actually went back and looked at the 2005 draft class,â€ Wake continued. â€œLooked at all the names that you probably would have seen on the front page of the paper after the draft back then. All the guys who were gonna be all-world and so on and so forth. A lot of those guys, theyâ€™re not playing anymore. And Iâ€™m still trying here, trying to help my team win. Iâ€™m still here. So nobody knows. Nobody has a crystal ball. If I had been a first-round pick, maybe I would have been done playing by now.â€
