I dont want to play the Giants again that is for sure. I know we will get smoked if we play the Giants again. I feel we matchup well with Atlanta and Chicago if we make the playoffs.
The Packers are a very good team. VERY GOOD. I honestly don't know how we did this to them. I kept thinking to myself... "Is this the same Giants team that laid an egg vs the Bengals?"
The Giants are no guarentee to make the playoffs. A win vs the Redskins will pull us so close but we certinly can lose to the Saints, Atlanta, and the Ravens too so these games are no gimmies.
The Packers have a much easier schedule and can very easily take that division. Chicago with Cutler is iffy at best. I have no faith in Cutler.
If I look into the crystal ball, I see The packeres as the 3rd seed, Atlanta as 1st seed, San Fran as 2nd seed, Giants as 4th seed, Bears as 5th seed, and either Seattle or Washington as the 6th seed.
This would set up Green Bay vs Washington and Giants vs Bears in first round. Yeah I'm way ahead of myself but that;'s what I'm seeing.
Football has been very, very good to us.
In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-
# of Super Bowl victories since 1985:
1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
4-New York Giants!!!!!

Sorry, GB winning streak came courtesy of asides from the Texans, playing 4 extremely bad teams in the Rams, Az, Jags & Lions. Not exactly a murderers row there. What happened when they finally played a really good team? They got exploded! Now they got Minny 2x, da bears, Lions & Titans left with only the Bears as the only legit tough team left on their schedule. See em beating Lions & Titans, splitting with Minny & losing to the Bears. So they finish 10-6 & as their reward, they get us in the WC rd. Don't really think they want that at all.
GB is good, no doubt, but they can't hang with the more tougher, physical Ds such as us, SF & Seattle whom sacked Rogers 12 times & laid down the smackdown on him. GB is a finesse team & cannot win the battle of the trenches vs the big bad physical Defenses I just mentioned.
Losing our O coordinator Philbin killed us alot. Our offense is 20th in the league right now and it shows. I will consider the season a success if we win just one playoff game.
Matthews is the best linebacker in the game and Rodgers is the best qb in the game right now.
