The NFC Champions The Green Bay Packers! On to the Super Bowl!

The Green Bay Packers have won the NFC Championship!

It was a long road to get there, but they powered through with heart and guts! This is the Packers’ 10th NFC Championship (NFL Western).

This team was picked to the Super Bowl favorites at the beginning of the season, but the numerous injuries to our team caused a lot of doubt mid season.  As the Packers got healthy and were able to bring stability to their roster, the Packers evolved into a well-oiled machine!

The number 6 seed in the playoffs, the Packers became “Road Warriors”.  Beating the Philadelphia Eagles during the Wild Card game, then on to Atlanta to play the Falcons at the dome, beating them decisively.  The final step in the ladder to the Super Bowl was to get the win against our division rival, the Chicago Bears.

The first half of the game gave me a false sense of security.. I actually called the game when the Bears sat Cutler and brought in Collins.  Little did I know the Bears had a young third string quarterback waiting in the wings.  Caleb Hanie gave the Bears their best chances to come back on the Packers and make a game of it.  So, kudo’s to them for that.

But the BIG news of the day.  The Packers are heading to Dallas for Super Bowl XLV!

Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers team and all the Packers fans around the globe!  This is truly a special day for us all!.
