    Nah, I could care less who wins to be honest. Well, I don't really want to see NE win. And it'd be nice for GB to get knocked out so I don't have to listen to anymore Packer fans here in Cheeshead land - I already get enough of them since I'm a Bronco fan. But, they are on a roll - and there is nobody better in football right now than Aaron Rodgers.

    In the end whoever wins, I'll still get up and go to work the next day.

    Yeah, I'm like you, I don't have a dog in the fight. Only difference is I don't go to work in the am, I leave in the am. Thanks for the CP, I'll return the favor after I've waited long enough to be allowed to.

    Well Houston held them to 21. That's still decent points but I would consider that a huge success for Atlanta.

    And Minnesota held them to 14 before their D completely fell off the track.

    We held him to like 70 sum odd yards passing, didn't we?

    If he pulls this win off when Green Bay has all of these injuries, and Atlanta has this high flying offense and are relatively healthy except for Julio and his toe, it'd be his most impressive win to me. It would remind of Elway taking all of the 80's teams to the super bowl on his shoulders.

    Well yeah what we did to him last year is completely unheard of.

    Atlanta isn't going to do that. But some key turnovers or missed fg's could drastically lower the score in a game where Rodgers is actually playing well.

    Also I would expect that a lot of the current Gb listed injuries today will be a go come Sunday. But it will be a matter of how effective are they.

    Yup...hard not to pull for Aaron right now. Plus I can't stand the two AFC teams left standing...

    Back to OP, statistics don't really tell you much at this point in the season. It's whose healthy and motivated. JMO

    Yeahhh... and they came into Denver.... with absolutely no momentum. So, that doesn't fit the narrative. It's all about winning each separate game when you're in the playoffs. Not about how you played last game. Sometimes teams are hot when they do so. Sometimes they're coming off losing 4 out of their last five games like the ravens. One of which they squeaked by with converting a 4th and 20 on a screen pass lol. But, to say they had a bunch of momentum is not really true. Unless you're talking about by the time they played in the Super Bowl. Then, sure. But definitely not when they played us.

    If NE* wins the Super Bowl, it will probably be because of their defense. Atlanta's offense will present a scouting challenge to Belichick*, but he has faced potent offenses before and dealt with them. We shall see.

    I agree.

    I'd say the same thing for ATL too. The Falcons D is gonna have to play well for them to win, because like you mentioned, NE has faced potent offenses before. I can't see ATL dropping 44 on the Pats...

    I can. They are a potent offense with a plethora of weapons. BB is good at taking away 1 weapon....not 5. I think this will get ugly for the Pats. Julio is to tall and to fast and to physical for Ryan and Butler. The combo of Freeman and Coleman is to good for their LBs. Then they have their big TE and Sanuk isn't no slouch either.

    On defense do the sleep on Beasley. We saw 1st hand what he can do. Their defense can get pressure.

    I see a big ATL win in a no contest type SB.

    I certainly wouldn't be mad if ATL DID put up 44 on Ne
