Pack worthy


I do not think a wild card team this year will win the Super Bowl, but if one could, I believe it would be the Green Bay Packers. Although the Dallas Cowboys (a division winner but did not earn a bye) are a hot team, playing with a solid, balanced offense and with a lights out defense, they still have Wade Phillips as their Head Coach. That eliminates them.

The Green Bay Packers, on the other hand, are the wild card of all wild cards and can take out anyone, including the Minnesota Vikings even if they were not able to in the past. With teams like the Saints and Colts resting their players and losing towards the end of the season, it might be hard for them to get back on track which favors teams like the Packers.

On offense, the Packers line is finally starting to gel, just at the right time. They are doing a better job in protecting QB Aaron Rodgers. Additionally, they are doing a great job creating running lanes for RB Ryan Grant. A solid running game opens up the play action and passing lanes for Rodgers. Factor in Rodgers' ability to step up in the pocket and throw down the field to WRs Driver and Jennings along with TE Finley and you have what it takes for a championship caliber offense.

Combine that offensive productivity with Charles Woodson leading a hungry and aggressive defense and you have a team capable of winning it all, especially this year where there is no truly dominant team on both sides of the ball like we may have had in previous years.
