No! Pack No!

A month ago the Green Bay Packers were unbeaten and seemed unstoppable in their mission to win back to back Super Bowl Titles. On Monday, the defending champs were cleaning out their lockers.

Their 15 regular-season wins are the most ever for a divisional-round loser, but they’re the fourth No. 1 seed in the NFC in the last five years to go down in their first playoff game. The Packers loss to the Giants was their first home loss in 15 months and only their second loss in 23 games. Giant’s fans saw this streak coming to an end. The Packers are 2-4 in the last 6 home playoff games. But Aaron Rodger’s fans expected to see the “Discount Double Check” and instead we saw those beautiful blue eyes full of sadness during the post game interview after the NFC Divisional loss.

The winter weather in Green Bay is brutal, but it was worse watching Eli and crew manhandle Rodgers and his Pack. Who cut the cheese in Green Bay? This wasn’t the same team we’ve watched dominate teams the last two seasons. Where did all the dropped passes, fumbles, failing on 4th down, missed blocks and a defense with more holes than a slice of Swiss cheese come from? Was Green Bay exposed? Are the Giants that good? Eli had a postgame career high with 330 yards and scoring 17 points in the 4th quarter was more numbing than they the temperature in Lambeau.

Funny, my Redskins beat the Packers last season and two of the five wins from this season were against the Giants. If only we had a solid QB and offense coordinator… While Eli is surrounded by players, coaches and the Manning legacy- if he ever played in Washington he wouldn’t be as successful. But big brother Peyton…talk about killing two birds with one stone- a solid QB and an OC. I’d take my chances on his neck issue, at least we’d still have an OC and as a Redskins fans, our expectations are pretty low. Maybe next year, maybe next year…

The Redskins didn’t have a prayer for post season action and the Packers literally dropped the ball so now the question is who to root for. No one wants to watch the Giants vs. Patriots in Super Bowl rematch (except NY and NE fans). The rest of us want to see reality TV at it’s best by seeing little brother Jim Harbaugh take on his big brother John Harbaugh in another 49ers vs. Ravens rematch- well everyone except their parents.
