From Outside Packernation: NFLĀ 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.

It's Been Fun! Wow, it has really been fun this week thinking about how close at hand the football season is and seeing Packernation's response to the question of what to call the Matthews/Peppers duo.
