You do realize that we had to beat New York in week 16 of 2010 in what was effectively an elimination game, right?

Yeah, that team was a shell of itself from the one that kicked our ass in 2007. The Packers are a finesse team posing as a tough team. When we get a legitimate power blocking run game and a lock down defense - we will kick the shit out of teams like the Giants and 9ers.

Shell of itself? They went 10-6 and had many of the same players as the team that won the Super Bowl the next year.

If you think those Giants teams were comparable, then I feel sorry for you. Also, if you can't admit that the Packers of 2011-2012 were softer than Liberace at the Playboy Mansion - I also feel sorry for you. These things make me angry about our team, funny how some of you just accept it.

I'm not talking about the Packers being soft or not. I've discussed before improvements I'd like to see to our defense and our offensive line.

What I'm commenting on, and what annoys me, is historical revision for the sake of trying to make a point. Never mind that we also beat the Giants during the regular season of 2011 as far as whether or not we "can't" beat them.

Suggesting the 2010 and 2011 Giants aren't comparable--teams that had many of the same significant contributors including most of the offensive line, running back tandem, and most of the defensive line (those positions often determining whether or not a team is tough or soft); the same head coach, offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator; and probably over 40 of the same players--is laughable.

Yes of course. But any team can defeat any other any given Sunday.
Teams like the Giants and San Francisco have given us a lot of headeaches.

I believe it is about coaching. Mike McCarthy is outcoached by Coughlin and Harby in the same way that was easy to outcoach Redi, Tomlin and Smith in the 2010 SB run.

OUR team was also a shell of itself.

We've beaten the Giants a number of times over the years. It's getting to be a pretty good rivalry, but it's not like they have our number or anything.

One look at Seattle's D last night and I would say we are pretty far away from our next Superbowl.

We need, still, to get bigger and faster on D, and I'll add, meaner. We seemed to play uninspired football far too often last season.

I'm taken aback by our loss of toughness and inspired play. We clearly don't have the same types of players on our D, as was on display with Seattle.

in other words, despite Coach Michael's contrary insistence, the Packers are a soft team. Especially on defense.
