1. Air It Out: It is no secret that the Packers biggest weapon is the passing game. Aaron Rodgers has been nominated for the FedEx Air player of the Year and rightfully so. Has the passing game been so great because there is a lack of a running game? Or is Aaron Rodgers becoming one of the elite quarterbacks in the game? Either way the numbers don't lie and neither does the record. The Packers finished the regular season 10-6 and are currently 1-0 in the playoffs. Stick to what you do best, and you can book your tickets to Chicago/Seattle.
2. Matthews/Woodson: Charles Woodson won the Defensive Player of the Year award in 2009, Clay Matthews was just named the 2010 Sporting News Defensive Player of the Year. Could there be any other combo in the NFL that could strike more fear into an opponent? Doubt it. Matt Ryan is a great passer, and great at home. But when it comes to running, he is no Mike Vick. Getting these two players could be a key to winning, as a scrambling Matt Ryan will bode very well for the Packers.
3. James Starks: Where has this guy been? Oh, that's right, on the injury report. Starks exploded for over 120 yards against the Eagles and the addition of the run game could surprise the Falcons. If you can add a running game to an elite passing game, you suddenly have one of the best teams in the NFL.
