I trust everyone had a great Thanksgiving break. I know I did. Thanks for all the well-wishes while I was down and out - I feel a lot better and am ready to get back at it. Been doing a lot of reading over the last few days, especially around the Blogosphere, fan forums and the like. It seems there's a lot of "I really think the Packers can beat the Ravens..." going around. I've gotten various messages via email and Twitter basically saying the same thing.
Well, it took you long enough.
Yes, this team was dead to rights after the Tampa game - but credit where it's due, which should be given to Mike McCarthy. The week leading up to the Cowboy game was pretty brutal for coach and he came out the other end with a team that is set up to beat you in any number of ways. Yes, the flaws are there - but the team has at least played up to it's potential the last three games, something that could not be said throughout the first half of the season.
This team will be in every game from here on out - and the key will be, yes, taking it one game at a time. Yes, it's tempting to talk in terms of "3 wins get them in the playoffs" - but it would be foolish to look at any game but the next one from this point on. The Packers can beat anyone, can be beat by anyone and, this is the sad part, can beat themselves at anytime.
One game at a time. Go Pack Go.
