The Packers are going through with the 49ers the pretty much the same thing they went through with the cowboys in the seasons leading up to their SB win over the Patriots. We couldn't beat them either.

The biggest difference is that that was a team on the rise (the Packers I mean) and it was a steady ascension while this team has been hovering near the top for a while but has been rather stagnant. We are not still climbing the ladder in the same sense even though we can still get higher. Back then we got a little better every year, now we just can't seem to be able to find that one thing that gives us a boost up to that next rung.

We are close. We are able to compete with any team in the league and we can beat anybody. We are just not at that point where we are expected to beat everybody.

To me, the difference was personnel.

The Cowboys back then were loaded with talent due to the Herschel Walker trade. That had superior players, or maybe I should say more good players than we had.

That's not the case now. We COULD have beaten this team. All three times. But we shit ourselves.

NOTE: There was also a situation in the 90s, with our team being built for Lambeau in December. We had a power oriented team that was at a disadvantage on artificial surfaces and in domes. This was made worse by the fact that EVERY time we faced Dallas, it was AT Dallas. Remember the crown on that field, and how it caused Favre to overthrow Henderson early in the game?

Favre was always a little over excited early in games back then. Usually he'd get a forearm to the teeth and it would settle him down.

EDIT: Now this is not the case. We are a finesse passing team, and playing on artificial surfaces is actually an advantage for us. Didn't help us at CandleStick, because that's a natural surface, though.

Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
