I've grown used to it. Winters are cold here and GB's season ends in ridiculous fashion. One is as predictable as the other. And like the last few years there won't be any changes to the coaching staff. This team will continue to underachieve.

I was surprised how the defensive coverage broke down so swiftly in the playoffs. Next year with a healthy Jordie Nelson, I look for Arod and the packers to be back in the playoffs hunt.

I admit I actually thought they'd win the overtime even after losing the coin toss. Way different from last year when I knew the game was over before overtime even started. The defense played great this game until the 4th quarter and even the Card's go ahead touchdown with 4 minutes to play was lucky. But at this point I realize that I shouldn't have been shocked by a defensive breakdown, it's all too common. As for Rodgers we will wait and see, he needs to do some soul-searching this offseason. He was flat out bad for most of it and not having Nelson was just part of it, he looked disinterested and it is known around here that him and McCarthy don't get along.

Rodgers may not have been able to play up to the high level he has set but trust me, if I had a qb to make a play and my welll being depends on it, I want the football in Rodgers ' hand .Trust me, if he had some of his weapons(Nelson), the pressure would be off that defense. McCarthy will learn to get along or he WILL become a outside observer.

McCarthy will learn to get along or he WILL become a outside observer.

As you know I've been hoping McCarthy would become an "outside observer" a long time ago. He flat out isn't good and the proof is in the results. Rodgers, before this year, was far and away the best QB in the NFC (and probably NFL) yet the team hasn't made the Super Bowl in 5 years now. The Packers have lost 4 overtime playoff games in 9 years under McCarthy, blowing 4th quarter leads in the last 2 of them. He is too conservative and too much of a player's coach.

With Rodgers it is tough to say but really the last 12 weeks of the season he came out playing like crap and seemed to have low energy. Then when the Packers got behind 2+ scores you'd see a sense of urgency. That issue isn't about Jordy or a depleted offensive line. That could be due to the rift between him and McCarthy or maybe he is having too much fun with Olivia Munn (who would blame him!!). Regardless he needs to get his head out of his ass next year or GB won't even make the playoffs.

I'm tempted to pick the Broncos, but Peyton was hobbling around last week. I agree Caro and the Evil Empire again.

It's not so much that I picked against the Legion as much as I couldn't see anyone scoring enough points against Carolina.

I'm going to be different and say Arizona vs. Denver for SB
I'm thinking big chips on shoulders of both since no one's giving them a chance,
Also, I don't like how Caro almost let the Hawks back in and Denver has a great record at home especially when it comes to playoffs.

This is one time I don't mind being wrong. Congrats to Denver and Carolina as they will be contesting the bowl in 2 weeks.

Always glad to see the Pats go down. Denver may have that team of destiny feel but it is going to take something special to take out the Panthers in a couple weeks. I just don't see it happening, hopefully it is a good game though.

Agreed. Again, I don't see any of these teams being able to put up enough points to beat Carolina. Cam is scoring on just about every possession.

Yes. Although last weekend results in Denver was a complete shocker..I don't see Peyton being able to play game manager during the SB to defeat Cam and da boys regardless of they are serious ly banged up
