From Outside Packernation:
NFL AM had a piece this morning outlining three reasons the Packers will/won’t make the playoffs. The piece, to me was a little wanting. Now, it is to be expected that a show that covers the entire NFL would not know the Packers like the fans so I am not here to gripe. In fact, I had the same number one reason as they did…and furthermore, their piece got me thinking about this post so, “Hey guys…thanks!”

Three reasons the Packers WON’T go to the Playoffs:
- Their defense
