Green Bay is easily the third best team in the NFC. They drafted pretty well and have the best QB in the game. Thank god Dom and Fat Mike run the show though. Both aren't very good.
I agree, but with Rodgers behind center you're always in the mix (ala Brady / Manning). If their defense shows up and can rank in the upper 15th of the league, they'll be a real threat. Seattle is only a threat to win the division. If they get home field, they'll be hard to beat in the playoffs -- but if they're a wildcard, I dont see them going to GB, ATL, NO, or even Candlestick and winning any of their postseason games. Atlanta is damn dangerous at home, but not even close a threat if they're playing away.
If we get the number 1 seed, I see us making another run at the big game. I just think it's too high a mountain to climb to have to go to ATL (again) or GB (chip on their shoulder) or SEA (say what you want, but they have the best home field in the league) or even NO (Brees with Payton = danger) and make it back to the big game. Im hoping for the number 1 seed.
