It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over

rodgers mcAfter one of the worst Thanksgiving Day showings in recent memory, the Packers and their fans can all feel playoff hopes ebbing. But it is not over yet. With the Vikings overtime defeat of the Bears, the Pack could find themselves a half game back with a chance to get it done the last game of the season. Mostly likely losses for the Bears before final head-to-head would come from the Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys. Detroit (7-5) is the team we have to hope loses. They still have to play the Eagles, Ravens, Giants, and Vikings and while the former three are playoff contenders, the Vikings play detroit at the Metrodome, a game that could potentially be the last NFL game played at the Metrodome. One can imagine the Vikings wanting that one pretty bad and with the win over the Bears and tie with the Pack, a victory could show that they are still respectable in the division.

So with help, the playoff hopes are still alive and as we’ve heard in the past…after that, you never know…especially with a healthy, rested, hungry Aaron Rodgers behind center.

For Packer fans like me, the bigger question is…what is wrong with this team? Ted Thompson’s philosophy has been build through the draft coupled with a pretty solid track record of trading down to stockpile picks. All of this is to train players in our system and to have GOOD DEPTH. We are not seeing the next man up getting the job done right now. Criticism, also is swelling about the coaching staff and Dom Capers in particular.

So what does Packer Nation think?

  1. Let´s put this straight : Last year loosing to the 49ers ok….this year it´s just the injuries ….
    But we need for 2014 a “perfect” backup for Rogers etc.
    Look at NE -sorry- 16 Rookies this season on the field….how many were there @ GB?
    I see no longterm development @ GB…
    This is what will put GB back on the field for a super bowl…
