While the current perfect season has all Packers fans walking on clouds, the persistent question, “Can the Packers duplicate the ’72 Dolphins?” is complete nonsense.
The only truly important goal is winning the Super Bowl again.
Sure, Aaron Rodgers’ MVP-caliber season is incredible, and, sure, there are concerns about the defense, but the perfect season?
If the Packers do lose a game in the regular season, and hopefully they won’t, it simply won’t be the end of the world. The team will redouble efforts to fix errors and come out the next week ready to go again. Individual efforts and awards, points given up, yards gained, and yards allowed pale in comparison to winning the ultimate game.
For now, win the next game, finish on top of the North Division, secure home field advantage for the playoffs – those are relevant goals. Bring on the Lions, raise a turkey leg to the Packers, the Super Bowl is in sight.
Go Pack Go!
