Who's going to beat the Packers in the regular season ?

No one - that's who.

I know the Saints look real strong.
What other teams look strong to all you other "real football" fans out there ?
Who are your Superbowl favourites ?

Well, you know what they say about defense winning championships (although the ability to score touchdowns in todays league cannot be understated). The other thing is momentum - both going into the play-offs and then through the play-offs.

I like Green Bay but don't want to witness predictability. I also like the Patriots but thats still a bit repetitive. I'd like to see something unexpected and unpredictable (like maybe the Broncos from a wildcard spot).

I like the patriots but would not be surprised if Denver beats them next weekend. I think GB will go unbeaten and win the superbowl.

A big prediction - but not an outragious one. Bet you could get some good odds somewhere if you put your money down now.

(Gotta a good game going on between the Giants and Cowboys right now too)



.... and quite a finish. Good game!

Interesting. I wasn't watching the game (later watched Pats at the Broncos) and wondered if the Packers kept Rogers on the sideline with homefield advantage already wrapped up. Apparently that was not the excuse. Hmmm - "on any given Sunday"

Speaking of Broncos. Too bad.

OK, the San Francisco 49ers and the Houston Texans have both clinched their divisions, and both the Broncos and the Cowboys are at 8 and 6. There’s still a chance we will be seeing someone other than the recent regulars going through the play-offs.

I see all Sundays (Christmas) games have been moved to Saturday (Christmas Eve) – my wife is happy about that.
