    We always have a "chance" with a healthy #12 in there. 2014 everyone else was healthy and we should have won it. Had he played at Seattle like Brady did vs Seattle the week later, we would have at least gone to the Super Bowl. It would have been a blowout over Seattle that day.

    Agreed... As long as Rodgers is behind center, the Packers will be one of the NFC favorites. As we saw with this season, he's good enough for a number of wins by himself.

    Maybe he could have borrowed Gronk for a game.

    There were not many games this season compared to seasons past in which Rodgers alone was the biggest reason we won.

    That's true, but the first 6 games were a lot of Rodgers. Defense played well this year.

    There´s no denying that Rodgers performance against the Seahawks wasn´t a good one but it seems you forget that he played on one leg during that game.

    I certainly didn't forget. Perhaps you forgot about his performance the week before, on that same one leg.

    How did we win a Super Bowl with Finley on IR?

    The 2014 Seahawks defense was a far superior unit to the Cowboys one that season though.

    I think you meant Ladarius Green? Ladarius Gunter is already a Packer.

    While I agree Green could be the answer at TE, wont be as easy as ticking a box. First, he has to want to play in Green Bay and second, TT will probably have to out bid multiple teams, including the Chargers in order to obtain him.

    Living in Green Bay compared to San Diego or Los Angeles could be a tough sell.

    While we all want to think its the money, you have to wonder how many FA's have said "no" to GB due to not wanting to relocate to the city.

    Once again, I think fans make way too much out of players not wanting to play in Green Bay. While it's for sure occasionally true it's not the norm for sure. Ron Wolf not having any troubles signing free agents should serve as evidence.

    2009 Article, but you wonder how much has changed?

    296 players polled, hard to not put some value on it. I don't think things are as bad as they once were, but I would be curious if the choice of playing in GB has lost us a FA in recent history.

    If money is equal, the cold and city is probably something that could sway a player.

    I'm sure most rich 20 something year old guys would enjoy San Diego or Miami over Green Bay during the winter.

    Who say's they have to live in Green Bay? They could come down to a real city like Appleton. :)

    Certainly, but that shouldn't affect the actual throw or performance of the leg. Again, he threw the ball fine the week before, and then 2 weeks after Seattle beat us, I saw with my own eyes Brady throw 4 touchdowns and 300 yards on them.

    I don't give Rodgers any excuse for that calf, all things considered.

    Plus it was his 2 Ints and the miss to Jordy that were fatal. Both the Ints were mental errors (yes the ref did screw us on the first one to Davante vs Sherman) and the other was just misreading Cobb & the basic coverage. Very short simple throw, a gift Int.

    Reminder, this team was horrible without Rodgers in 2013, but with him, we are capable of beating anyone and winning Super Bowls. He put us on his back in the Super Bowl and the game at Atlanta that playoff run.

    But we can't win a Super Bowl with him making big mistakes like that in the playoffs.

    Are you honestly trying to say that playing on a torn calf muscle isn't going to affect how you move and throw the ball? Rodgers collapsed versus the Lions and had to be carted off. The fact that he came back out and then played on that same leg vs. Dallas and then Seattle speaks volumes about his grit.

    Nothing against his grit.
    Look at the 3 throws I am talking about.
    I have the on my DVR still, and I think I have posted a link or video of some of them.
    One was a very short throw to Jordy running an out from about the 5-yard line, Rodgers led him too far.
    Missed the early TD and had to settle for 3.

    The second Int was a horrible mental error that was too Cobb, and if it was Janis and not Cobb, everyone would be saying Janis is an idiot and it was 100% his mistake. In this case, who knows, but what I do know is Cobb saw and read the coverage and sat down, wide open. But Rodgers didn't see it the same way, led to a gift Int and points lost.

    The other Int was a refs mistake (should have been a free play), but also a poor decision and/or pass. Number one, it was Davante Adams, number two, it was against Richard Sherman. But despite all that, if the pass was thrown earlier or further, it probably is either a simple incomplete pass, or perhaps Adam's first and only long touchdown pass.

    Again, Rodgers was able to make good throws a week earlier in Green Bay.

    Jordy also stumbled out of his break, surely you saw that. If not run thru the dvr again. And it went off his finger tips.
