Obviously, it's thrilling that the Packers are going back to the playoffs. And it's fairly obvious they're the second best team in the conference. But I hate seeing things like this:
The Bucs are no match for the Cowboys or Packers. They're slotted. We know the Bucs will make the playoffs and that they will lose when they get there. It's now just a matter of filling in the details.
The author is obviously not familiar with Monte Kiffin's history of causing Favre nothing but grief. Or that the last time a playoff game was played in Lambeau, a Vikings team that everyone expected the Packers to beat, and whom the Packers had swept during the regular season, came into Green Bay and thumped the Packers. Not to mention the fact that McCarthy, while having guided the team superbly this season, has exactly zero playoff games on his resume as head coach, while Jon Gruden and Monte Kiffin have been to the Super Bowl - and won it.
Are the Packers the better team? Clearly, which is why they need to focus on the Rams and not get caught up in ridiculous speculation about the playoffs.
