Matt Flynn, Jordy Nelson, and the Playoffs

What a game yesterday! Almost 1,000 yards of total offense and 6 td’s by our back up QB. Hats off to Jordy Nelson who is fast becomming one of my favorite Packers players, I was txt. back and fourth with a friend of mine while watching the game, some of the words we threw around were So. Damn. Good., beast, monster, and amazing, I think that pretty much sums up Jordy. Matt Flynn gotta eat!, and feast he did all day on a Lions backfield that was piss, poor, at best. Ive heard a lot of people say we should be worried about our D, and I agree to an extent but we are who we are this year and who we are is a D that consistenly creates turnovers and gets the ball back for our offense. I think lost in all of the Matt Ryan hoopla is the fact that our running game looked pretty good, I realize3 that Ryan grant scored on a screen pass but I was impressed with his explosion, he looks healthy and ready to go.

The Chiefs loss may have been a blessing in disguise. I feel pretty good about our health going into playoffs and it was great to get guys like Charles Woodson, Clay Matthews, and Aaron Rodgers a couple weeks off from the grind of an NFL game. It’s great to have a coach like McCarthy calling the shots, he seems to make the right call at all times, and I think this was just another example of that. The rest those players will get as well of the additions of, Greg Jennings, Randall Cobb, and Chad Clifton will give the Pack a huge push and boost in confidence heading into the playoffs.

The playoffs are finally here! and while it’s said that any team can win any given sunday, I think the NFC matchups seem to be pretty cut and dry. The Saints will handle the Lions easily. While the Atlanta vs. Giants game apears to be an even match at first glance I just think the Giants are playing with a ton of swagger and confidence and that Eli will make more plays than Matt Ryan and the Falcons. That would set up the matchup I spoke about last week the Packers vs. Giants, a matchup I really don’t love, but after seeing how well we played Sunday with Matt Flynn and the secound team some of those fears have put to rest temporarily. Lets enjoy this weekends playoff games and be thankful that we have the week off and that the road the Super Bowl must go through Lambeau! GO PACK GO

All we have to Fear is Fear itself… and the Giants

I think the Packers win our fith Super Bowl title this year. No QB has had a better season than Aaron Rodgers , IN THE HISTORY OF THE NFL! People say we need to worry about New Orleans, I disagree. While Drew Brees and New Orleans is a very talented team I don’t think they can stop Aaron Rodgers a game with the Saints would be a shoot out and Ill take our guys in a shoot out any day of the week especially at Lambeau in front of our home crowd. New Orleans is a dome team and historicaly dome teams don’t play well on grass. The Packers D is giving up a lot of yards but they also force a lot of turnovers, Drew Brees is a great player but you can force him into some bad throws and thats what i think will make a diffrence if we see the Saints in the NFC Championship game. The only team I am worried about comming into Lambeau and potentially beating us is the New York football Giants, the reason is three fold. 1)It’s no secret that our O line is having trouble healthwise and while the Bears game was a great sign it remains to be seen how the unit will hold up against the likes of a D line like what the Giants have, I am particullary worried about Jason Pierre Paul, this guy is a physical freak (have you seen his youtube video where he’s doing like 15 back flips with out stoping!?) I am hopeful that we will have Bulaga and Chad Clifton back healthy by then but if we have to play the giants this could be a problem. 2) The Giants running game. I’m not a big fan of Brandon Jacobs AKA the Tip Toe Bandit, but Ahmad Bradshaw is no slouch when healthy (Did you see him run over Brodney Pool, Jets Safety!?). My fear is that the Giants run game, behind a better than average O line will be able to control the clock and keep the ball out of the hands of Aaron Rodgers much the same way Kansas City was able to control the game week 15. 3) The confidence of Eli Manning. Any great team is led by their QB. I still rember when eli came in the league and looked like a scared puppy everytime he took the field, well times have changed. Eli now has a Super Bowl ring. Eli and this team have the confidence to know they can come into Lambeau and beat us because they’ve done it before (Why hello Brett Favre). This years Giants team reminds me  a lot of our team last year, they are playing with a lot of confidence and swagger and look poised to make some noise in the playoffs. The Giants have played Giant slayer before (no pun intended), beating an undefeated New England team in the Super Bowl. The catalyst for that win was a tough played game by New York against the Patriots in the regular season finale. That game gave New York the confidence to beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl. I seem to remember the Giants taking my favorite team to the wire and us needing a magical Aaron Rodgers 1 minute drill for a last second field goal to win the game. We our 14-1 and defending Super Bowl Champs, have the BEST QB IN THE LEAGUE, and have the best homefield advantage the NFL has ever seen, the road to the Suoer Bowl must go through Lambeau. We have plenty of reason to be confident but if the Giants come to town, not the Saints I may say a couple extra prayers before the game.
