So They Say “May The Best Team Win”…But Not Always

Aaron RodgersThe old saying doesn’t always hold true. A Packers team that seemed to once again take their foot off the gas and fall apart both in the redzone and in the second half was in many ways the better team. This will likely be the most disappointing Super Bowl for the fact that our beloved Packers won’t be playing and the AFC representative is a team we had already beaten.

It is sad to me that Seattle had to rely on their punter, ex-Packer Jon Ryan, to throw a touchdown pass. I am sure Seahawks players and fans are satisfied with that kind of a win, but not Packers fans. As horrifying as it was to see our team not seal the deal when they had the game in hand…to the tune of one…just one first down, it is just downright pathetic to see a team that should be cleaning out their lockers take the Packers rightful spot in the Super Bowl.

We are disappointed, but not devastated. We are down, but we are not out. While this season did not end the way we wanted it to, we are still Packers fans and very soon we will once again bring the Vince Lombardi trophy home. Yes…we fell. And yes…we will get back up! Continue reading

When They Don’t Give You A Chance…You Take It: The Packers Defense

timeIn the first meeting in September, the Packers gave up 110 yards rushing to Marshawn Lynch and the Seattle Seahawks. This Packers defense is a little bit different and we are going to need them to play lights out to take one from the Seahawks in a few…short…minutes.

The Packers defense has been much better of late, and in my opinion may be the unsung heroes in this game. We know that the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers is limited, we know that Eddie Lacy will have a big part to play. But the Packers defense can truly prove a point this afternoon if they can get the job done against the Seahawks offense. Continue reading

When They Don’t Give You a Chance…YOU TAKE IT: The Packers Offense

GreengangToday is the day when Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers step up and take what Packers fans know belongs to us…the NFC Championship and a shot at Super Bowl XLIX! When they don’t give you a chance…folks…you TAKE ONE! This is the day, the time is now, the game is at hand.

The reckoning begins this afternoon and the stakes could not be higher. If the Patriots win the AFC, the Packers would with a win face a team they have already beaten. This game against the Seahawks could very well be the more difficult contest. And so it is time for all the blood, sweat, and tears to come to fruition in another Packers NFC Championship.

Can The Underdogs Dog the Big Dogs?

Well the Packers are now in Seattle and the oddsmakers have the Pack as 7+ point underdogs. Over and over I hear how this game is gonna be a blowout by the Hawks. Aaron Rodgers is not going to be able to run unless something about his calf injury changes drastically in a day. And if you’ve ever had a calf injury…you know that is not the way it works.

Apparently, the Seahawks even have better shoes with Marshawn Lynch’s $1,100.00 gold cleats making lynch-cleatsheadlines today. Well how can this poor, outclassed Green Bay Packers team deal with that? I got a few ideas…

Here’s how: Continue reading
