Though my predictions were not spot-on they were darn close.
The Packers are in the playoffs.
I gave them a 12-4 record. They ended 11-5 and were one play away (Steelers) from being 12-4.
They have won 7 of their last 8 and are a very tough defensive team. They are also hard to stop offensively. They have one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and Aaron Rogers is only the second Packer to finish the season with a QB rating over 100. Bart Star was the first.
I'm very happy with most facets of the team. The coach changed a 6-10 team into a very tough hard nosed football team. We need offensive line help next season and need to get it through free agency. Drafting will not be much help in that the help we need is immediate. Special teams are a deep concern as well. Coverage teams are average and penalty prone. Well…The whole team is penalty prone but 50% of that is aggressive play penalties. That’s the price we pay for being the #1 defense.
I’m looking forward to this post season. We have much to prove and much to learn.
How far will they go? Well, I'll take this one game at a time since I have no idea who they play after Arizona. We will beat Arizona but not like we did this last week. It will be closer.
