Charlotte Observer said:
In Green Bay, they never do Super Bowls one at a time.

The Packers always have played in consecutive championship games. They were winners in the first two Super Bowls, then won Super Bowl XXXI before losing the game the following year.

So naturally, the talk around the team Monday - and almost immediately after the confetti hit the ground Sunday night - wasn't about the win against the Steelers in Dallas. It was already about Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.

Yup. They're thinking about Pack-to-Pack titles.

"We're looking to be back again next year," cornerback Charles Woodson said. "I really believe that. I think we have the team, we have the nucleus, and we most definitely have the quarterback."

The Packers were the second-youngest team in the NFL this season, so there is a pretty good chance that they'll be contenders for the foreseeable future. They also plan on being a lot more healthy in the 2011 season. Ryan Grant, Jermichael Finley, Nick Barnett, Mark Tauscher all will likely be back with the Packers after spending significant time on injured reserve in 2010.

Those guys undoubtedly want to be in next year's Super Bowl team picture without an asterisk.

The Packers on Sunday were the 10th different team to represent the conference in the Super Bowl in the last 10 years. No NFC team has appeared in back-to-back Super Bowls since Brett Favre's crew did it in the 1996 and 1997 seasons. Since then, no NFC Super Bowl champion has even won a playoff game the following season.

But these are the Packers, who always order a double when it comes to Super Bowl shots.

"I look at history and tradition as an asset, and we feel very blessed in Green Bay to have a tremendous history and tradition, and that's something that now we're a part of, we're permanently part of," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "That will be something that we'll use as a strength and an outlook."

Woody is now in the Hall of Fame. That said, I still want there to be football next year as Woody's not getting any younger. He'll be tough to replace.

Yes, I think we'll go back to back. Finley, Grant, and Burnett coming back will be HUGE.

I looked at our championship history and only twice before have we won titles and not have gone to at least the championship game either the year before or after.

1936 and 1944.

In 1939 we were champs after losing the previous year and in 1996 we won before losing the next year. 8 other titles have been a part of repeats or three-peats. We certainly do like to make the championship games in bunches.

it is sure difficult to repeat but with all the players they have coming back they should be able to give it a good try. the only thing holding them back is themselves and how hungry they will be.
