Packers say they won't overlook 1-6 Cowboys on Sunday at Lambeau

By Russ Owens

GREEN BAY (WAOW)-  The Packers come off a 9-0 win over the Jets on the road, their first shutout win on the road since 1991. Now the Dallas Cowboys come to Lambeau with a 1-6 record, but the Packers say they're not worried about that. The Cowboys are still a team that ranks in the top five in total offense and top 15 in total defense.

Says Nose Tackle BJ Raji, "We lost some close games that we could have easily won, so have the Cowboys so we're not looking at it like these are some scrubs coming in here that can't really play football."

Says Head Coach Mike McCarthy, "Last week we had no chance of winning, now it's a trap game, so there's none of that and I can promise you that."

Says Linebacker Frank Zombo, "Still its the NFL, theyre professionals too so we can't take them lightly in any way, they got their players as well."

Says Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, "They have a lot of pride and we know they're gonna give us their best shot and it's important for us to play our best game and then get to the bye and get healthy."

Green Bay though will have to do it without wide receiver Donald Driver on Sunday though, the vet will sit out suffering from a quad injury.

Says McCarthy, "Donald Driver missing practice, yeah, that's a concern because he doesn't miss practice and now he's gonna miss games, it obviously shows you the significance of the injury but talking to Donald, he thinks he'll be ready to go for the Minnesota game, so that's what we're shooting for."

Head Coach Mike McCarthy also did say he'll probably wait until Saturday to decide whether Al Harris and Atari Bigby will be put on the active roster.
