    I thought the same thing, until i looked at their schedule...

    they're terrible against good teams and will lose to ATL, but they should win their next 3, i mean all of their wins have come against no one good...

    They would normally lose to NO, but that game may end up being meaningless for the Saints...

    Next two weeks are critical for TB. They win both, they're in.

    They win one, it could come down to the meaning of the NO game.

    They lose both, they're done.

    Don't forget...they were one yard away from winning at ATL

    Bares can easily lose the rest of their games while we go 12-4.

    Still not worried, still see us going 12-4 or 11-5, which should be good for at least a wildcard spot.

    But still see us winning the division.

    I guess it depends on how big of an "elite" umbrella you want to have. I consider elite to be the top few teams in the league and not a term used to describe the top 12 teams in the league.

    If you look at the situation, it's not unreasonable to wonder if we're going to make the Playoffs. We're not in the Playoffs as of now.

    I haven't seen a "We suck" thread yet, but it's not a given that we make the Playoffs and it's okay to wonder out loud whether or not we will because it's a legitimate concern if you look at the Playoff picture.

    That's also true for every other team, even the ones who are currently in the playoffs if they started now. I honestly can't think of a single team I would say I feel rock solid about winning the SB right now. This has been a season of ups and downs for nearly every team. I don't see a "golden team" that is doing everything right all the time. Therefore, it could be anybody's game. I agree we also have to face the fact that not making the playofffs is a legitimate concern. I just think our chances are a little better than some other teams. think we will make the playoffs but we must play better if we hope to advance.

    The key stat to me was Matt Ryan with that extremely long streak of completions. Almost all of them were really short. It's nice that we didn't give up the long pass play, but giving up 5 yards on seemingly every run or pass is killer.

    According to longtime "Superfan" we are all fair weather fans if we question anything after a loss.

    Whats funny is that he is putting all the blame for this game and loss on AROD, who, IMO played OUT of HIS F*ing MIND today minus the fumble.

    crazy how peoples perspectives change in different threads.:boredom:

    I assume this is supposed to be a mocking gesture at fair weather fans...


    SOOOOOO

    what are YOU saying in this other thread about Rodgers?

    "...thats a Brett excuse

    The coaches did not fumble the ball

    Plain and simple..Coaches give players the play, players execute, Rodgers failed

    so if Rodgers wouldnt have fumbled but they kicked a FG

    Who wins?..."

    crazy, cause it sounds like you are placing blame and questioning things like these "theys" that you talk about.

    Luckily, the season doesn't end now. If it did, we're the 8 seed. And they only let 6 in. So that's not good.

    But what is good is we have 2 NFC games coming up where we will be heavy favorites, and if we don't blow them, we'll be 9-4, tied with the Bears who get New England in 2 weeks.

    Today doesn't matter anymore, nor does it mean we can't get a #2 seed.
    We win all the games we're favored in, lost our game at NE, and we win the division and get the 2 seed, which is great. It's all about how we play going forward. We should have learned some correctable lessons today.

    But I don't think we can correct the special teams breakdowns.
    And I don't think we can correct the soft run blocking on short yardage situations.
    We're a finesse OL, and how can that be changed?

    Let me make my self CLEAR

    You told me I was WRONG with MY opinion
    , that pissed me off..To be honest that is why I am mocking you in some posts..Dont tell me my opinion is wrong and I would have let a few things go w/o a comment..

    I personally can not fathom blaming coaches for when a player fumbles..Specially the q.b when PART of his job is to scramble and know how to hold onto a football...


    I understand the play was wrong, I get that...But no where did I EVER say your opinion was wrong thinking it was wrong play..

    Rodgers was PART of the blame...Show me where I said he deserved ALL of it??

    Defense and s/t are MORE to blame than Rodgers..

    Ok, then. What if two of the top few elite teams in the league play each other? Or is that not possible?

    I already answered this once. Scroll back for an answer.

    Using your definition, it seems that there are no elite teams remaining as no one is undefeated. I believe that one can be elite, yet still lose games-- even important games, throughout the season.

    It's just a label, of course. Doesn't mean anything. I'd rather be non-elite and holding the Lombardi trophy (Giants, 2008.) than be elite and not holding the trophy (Patriots, 2008.)

    I also think that in this particular game, it took an elite-level team to be tied with the Falcons with 58 seconds to go. Not to shabby, imo.

    Dude- I was disagreeing with your rather negative opinions on the capabilities and current status of the Packers. Not trying to "show you up" or anything. It's called debate.

    Sheesh.

    Oh God. Fighting Over the Forums.


    If the Playoffs started today. We would not be in. And Considering we got 2 tough games that lay ahead. Is Home Against the Giants and On the road to the Pats. I hope the Pats Beat the Bears and we win our game that week we would be tied again.

    Winning the Division could come down to the last game against the bears, and if we make the playoffs.

    c_mac friend,

    How in the world can the Packers dictate the game without anything resembling a running game? Let us count our blessings. To paraphrase Churchill " Never have so few (the Packers with injuries), done so much."

    I actually believe that if we run the ball even LESS last game, we control the clock much better.

    Each passing play was getting yardage, whereas almost each running play LOST yardage.

    That toss to Jackson, if that play isn't there, even if Rodgers miss the pass, it's 3rd and 1, not 3rd and 7.

    A quick passing game can be used to control the clock, when the passing game is working. And yesterday that was the case.

    MM said that he didn't abandon the running game because half of his passing plays are based on PA. That was one of the most stupid comments I've ever seen. When he abandoned that notion, and started passing, GUESS WHAT OPENED UP? THE RUNNING GAME!

    You can set up the run to pass, but you can do the other way around.

    MM recognized it too late.

    LOL! You are taking this WAY too serious, homey. It's football!

    We lost, we are 7-4, I don't believe that makes us one of the top teams in the NFL. A good team? No doubt. Better than average? Sure. Playoff team? Very good possibility. One of the elites? No.
