I suspect that the Patriots and Falcons will play in the Super Bowl. I was hoping to see Patriots and Packers but Packers could overcome the large deficit in Atlanta.

It's going to be a loooooooooonnnnnngggggg time before another coach or starting quarterback gets to seven Super Bowls. This type of record may never be broken...

You're right, probably won't. I've always wanted a Pat and Pack SB, but the Packers can't seem to get there.

I've seen things about Rodgers and it amazes me when a close game ends in OT, he never gets back on the field, doesn't play defense and this is his fault?

Now the coach is a different story, but you have to have players with some talent to coach up and always picking at the bottom of the draft or going undrafted rookies like Ted does, not an easy task. I look at the Packers defense, what they were working with this year, all the injuries and Bravo for them making it this far.
But it's the same story with them all the time. When you have an elite QB, expectations are higher. When Denver got their asses kicked in the super bowl, they immediately turned things around and put together an elite defense. Two years later, they won the super bowl.

Yes they did. I'm always wondering if at some point the mindset of management will change before Rodgers gets to his late 30s and decides to quit. Rodgers makes comments in his pressers after a loss like this that can be taken one or two different ways about reloading, getting players but Ted just operates the same ways he always does.

There have been some rumblings as he is 64? and there are comments about Dorsey coming back (KC) or Eliott Wolf taking over, but nothing yet. Eliott didn't go to the 49ers and they gave him more money but will he take over?
A few experienced players here and there would be nice, Cook worked out great this year at TE so maybe Ted will shock us.

This league has sunk to all time lows. Can't even have competitive games in the conference finals. The salary cap was supposed to fix the same teams winning every year and now we are left with weak defenses and good QB looking even better because of rules geared to handcuffed defenses. What a joke!

Forget about conference finals, there have been very few good games in the playoffs this year. Basically GB-NYG and GB-DAL. Even in the regular season, the AFC was a bore, though the NFC side was pretty fun.

Well 1-1 in the championship games. That makes me 9-1 in the playoffs. Not bad!
