You should really cheer for the Packers! Not much bad-blood between the two teams/fans, yet. Fellow NFC North member.

CHI and MIN fans cheering against us I get (I cheer against those two all the time), but Green Bay & Detroit don't seem to have that beef....right now atleast. It's likely coming in the next few years though.


As far as the Packers fans who live in Wisconsin and Lions fans who live in Michigan and Northwest Ohio, there really isn't much hatred there.

But we all know those people who are Packers fans just because they like John Deere or Brett Favre or whatever. As it happens, one of my least favorite people who was a roommate of mine is a Packers fan. Last year during the Super Bowl, I was conflicted. I HATE the Steelers and their fans so I was kind of ok with Green Bay winning, but I did not want my acquaintance to have the undeserved feeling of accomplishment that comes with winning the Super Bowl.

Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

Can't say I was ready for that. And now the way to the Super Bowl is made clear for Green Bay...

Or not. I wasn't ready for that either! I guess it's the typical tale of a team with a mediocre record that got hot near the end of the season and went on a run. Like these very same Giants in '07, the Cards in '08, and last year's Super Bowl champion...

I'm hoping for a Pats-Giants rematch. :D

Sad for the Pack. I really thought they were going all the way.

Talk about s***ting the bed. The defense was their same old self they've been all season and the offense was completely off. The saddest part of the loss is that NY didn't beat the Packers, GB beat themselves. I haven't seen them play that sloppy of a game in a few years and unfortunately, it happened at the worst possible time.

Interesting sidenote: Since the NFL instituted the 12-team playoff format in 1990, the number 1 seed in the NFC started out 17-0 in the Divisional round, but since then the 1 seed has lost 4 of the past 5 years! That's crazy. The Packers did it to the Falcons last year.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Yeah pretty much shocked that the Packers blew it to Eli and company, I was pretty confident that they were going to be the super bowl victors this year. Congrats to the Giants and all but damn Green Bay, way to throw out a brilliant season.

I can only hope the McCheapskis aren't sitting around on this GM opening so they can promote Tim Ruskell. I would s*** myself while screaming bloody murder and then putting on my Red Wings DVDs...

Meanwhile, George McCaskey sounds a lot tougher than his brother and his mother already as acting Chairman. If he's even half the ******* that his Grandpa was, Bears will win a Superbowl in the next 4 years.

No one wants to fire Lovie, no one wants to get competent coordinators, and no one wants a competent GM, but all the "Partners" (95% the McCaskey Family) love RAKIN IN THAT CASH.

I think NE has more to prove this time around and will take it.

But I've been wrong before.

The first part I agree with, Brady will play better than yesterday. I hope the defense does too.

The second part, I can keep a secret if you can.;)

I was hoping for a rematch. Also, this Giants team, idk what it is about them but they sure are good on the road during the playoffs.

But I'm going to have to say the Pats win this one. Giants D-line is still elite and they have a productive offense at times, but the Patriots are more balanced offensively than in 2007 and have stepped up defensively. Plus they have another mismatch with Gronk and Hernandez.

I think if the 49ers were in it they'd match up better defensively with the Pats offense and would probably win it. Hopefully it's another good game (not that you can replicate something like Superbowl 42 ever again), but I have to say the Pats take this one.
