Green Bay’s Road Back to the Super Bowl
Green Bay should repeat as Super Bowl champions. Don-t worry about the Patriots. They-re in the AFC and they always have a way of choking somewhere along the line. That has been the case for the past seven seasons. As far as the NFC goes, the first thing we need to look at is Green Bay-s division ” the NFC North. The Bears might have looked good on opening day, but what the stats don-t show is that Cutler threw two picks that were dropped by the Falcons- defense. It-s only a matter of time before the Cutler meltdown occurs. The Vikings are a complete non-threat. The Lions are explosive, but they-re too young to come out ahead in a big game versus an experienced and talented team. Therefore, the Packers will win their division.
What about after that? In the NFC playoffs, the Packers might have to contend with the Saints, Falcons, 49-ers, Eagles, Cardinals and Cowboys. The Saints are a certain threat and match-up well versus the Packers. The Packers better hope someone else knocks them out. The Falcons are way too methodical for the Packers- high-powered offense. That was proven last season. The 49-ers can-t hold a candle to the Packers. No worries there. The Eagles are good, but their offense line is too weak and Vick will wear down as the season progresses. The Cardinals have a great offense, but a pathetic defense. The Cowboys are a dark horse, but Romo will throw that critical pick in every critical situation.
Based on these circumstances, it-s likely that the Packers will get to and win the Super Bowl. Their AFC threats in the Super Bowl are the Jets, Ravens, Texans and Chargers. The Jets could give them a game, but if they fell behind, they-d have no chance. The Ravens- defense is too old to be able to keep up with the Packers- offense. The Texans are a formidable threat, but lack experience. The Chargers have no defense at all.
Overall, the Packers have to worry about the Saints more than anyone else. If that Patriots manage to get to the Super Bowl, that-s another threat, and that would be an amazing game.
