I don't mean to be a debbie downer, but since the giants last year, the packers have still demonstrated an inability to move the ball against a stout front four, the'9ers whipped the pack at home, ans the giants game just 3 weeks ago was one of the worst losses in years for the franchise. I don't know that they're any better equipped going in than last year.

I like our chances against anybody. ANYBODY.

In '09 we were eliminated from the playoffs on a technicality.

In '10 we won it all.

In '11, we were depleted on defense and the offensive coordinator's son died days before the game.

In my mind, that's all that has kept us from a threepeating.

If we do not go all the way this year, it will be an upset, IMHO. The only reason we don't have the second seed right now is due to the FAIL MARY game. Now also calculate that we started Jarrett Bush against the Niners.

Our other two losses were against the Colts and Giants, both teams playing at home with an extra bye week to rest up. That is a distinct advantage in the NFL, and one that may be repeated in the playoffs.

Still, I like our chances.

DEFENSE: Definitely improved over last year, even with all the injury losses.

OFFENSE: Aaron Rodgers still refuses to let go of his stat whoring ways and adhere to WCO fundamentals, but the Packers now also have a competent (and potentially explosive, IMHO) running game. It seemed to me that the Bares were actually bringing safeties up at times yesterday. It just seems to me that IF Aaron can play within fundamentals, move the chains and dominate time of possession, the offense will be dominant again. However, even though he continues to feel irresistably compelled to go deep way too damn often, the run game still helps this offense get it done. And with fewer drops this year, I like the Packers chances.

Defenses know how to beat us. Play cover two to prevent the big play. Force Aaron to get bored moving the chains and let him start "pulling a Favre" and throwing deep all the time. Once Aaron mans up and starts practicing what everyone is preaching to Finley, we'll be back on track.

If the OC's family can manage to stay alive for the next two months, I think we could really go places.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Crosby has two games to get it together. I do think he's earned the chance. But make no mistake. Ted's got a rolodex with names in it.

Mentally, I think so. They've been through a lot this year. The Seattle debacle tested their will, followed by several significant injuries. They've also learned to win ugly, which is something they didn't do last year.

uffda udfa (24m) : Anyone ever get confused looking at Alex Van Pelt thinking it's MM?
uffda udfa (1h) : I hope they aren't going to dial it down believing in destiny .
Zero2Cool (2h) : Jason Wilde: Packers "feel like a team of destiny"
uffda udfa (4h) : They'll need all the Julio Joneses they can get.
Zero2Cool (4h) : Chmura: "I'll tell you this: Atlanta's going to score 40 points. They are. The #Packers are going to have to score 41."
Zero2Cool (9h) : Damn-Falcons coach Dan Quinn tells reporters that WR Julio Jones (foot) will be limited this week but will be “ready to rock” on Sunday.
Zero2Cool (9h) : Packers defense has a red zone INT in each of the last 3 games... Hyde with two of them. (One being the clutch 4thQ INT vs DET in Week 17)
Zero2Cool (11h) : Randall Cobb, Damarious Randall, Quentin Rollins, James Starks, Clay Matthews, Ty Montgomery & Jared Cook. OUT
Zero2Cool (11h) : Packers inactive list when they lost 33-32 to the Falcons week 8.
Zero2Cool (12h) : There is no emphasis, it's just a little bit of info. Take it or leave it. No harm.
Smokey (12h) : Zero, I believe that you and some others place too much emphasis upon data. no harm intended.
Zero2Cool (12h) : It’s the 1st time since 1970 all 4 conference championship teams finished the regular season on winning streaks of 4+ games
TheKanataThrilla (12h) : Salt mine. Love it.
TheKanataThrilla (12h) : The refs kept that game close. We should have blown them out early.
