It's like some of you can't go more than about 3 days without being bitches about this team.
The Packers defense is shit, we're going to be able to run on them and control the clock. Stopping Rodgers will obviously be tough but they're one dimensional and can't run the ball, if the Giants didn't have such a shit offense they could've easily been up by 10-17 about halfway through the second quarter.
The Giants have a great trio of CB's and an elite safety in Collins, but their second safety and CB depth is shit, and eventually they got worn down and Rodgers was able to make some plays over the middle with DRC (their slot CB) out and take advantage of their LB's over the middle. Their offense couldn't hold on to the ball for more than about 5 plays at a time so eventually their defense got worn down on the road.
What I can't get out of my mind is the divisional game against Atlanta the year the Packers won it all in 2010. Atlanta was the number one seed that year, their first game was Green Bay and Rodgers was absolutely perfect in the dome in a blowout win. That Atlanta team couldn't run the ball though and I'm fairly certain Ryan had some dumbass turnovers, so that obviously contributed to it, but that type of performance is my main concern.
Either way, even if they lay an egg against an obviously tough opponent, this is just the beginning and not the end. This isn't 36 year old broke back Romo we're talking about, we have a 12+ year window with a franchise QB with plenty of talent around him.
That's the big picture.
So I have arrangements to clear out the house next weekend, because as a normally soft spoken person, I'm going to traumatize the woman and the dogs screaming at the game.
We should be able to put up some points against GB but stopping Rodgers is another thing. This will be a tough one to win. Playoff experience, especially with a great QB is huge. It'll be interesting to see how Dak and the team responds to the increased intensity and pressure.
On one hand this season has been so unexpected it's like anything else we do is icing on the cake. But on the flip side I'd hate to have this golden opportunity and go one and done again. But as young as we are at key positions and with this defense I think it'd be tough to run the table even if we do beat GB. At this point I'm not nervous about the playoffs just want to enjoy the ride.
I'm looking forward to this game. Slightly nervous but looking forward to it.
We should be coming in healthy and I just realized that we didn't have Dez in our first matchup. Here's hoping he plays lights out and gets some revenge.
The only thing that will be irritating about this game is Joe Buck slurping on Rodgers cock the entire game.
