Green Bay Packers: It's all about the 'peak'



The Green Bay Packers are still alive and there’s a glimmer of hope Aaron Rodgers may return as the starter for this weekend’s game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Many fans have jumped ship already but I don’t want to talk to them. I want to talk to you.

Yes, you.

If you’re reading this, you are part of a group of fans that haven’t abandoned hope and you’re going to be glad you haven’t given up.

Every Super Bowl Champion has one thing in common. That is, they peak at the right time. The Baltimore Ravens made it to the Super Bowl last year after losing three straight to start the month of December. Then, they came together as a team while not depending on one person to do all the work, and they peaked. The year before that, the New York Giants lost four straight games in November into December and peaked after that which resulted in a Super Bowl win.

Then who could forget the last time the Green Bay Packers won it all back in 2010. That year, the Packers played their best football right at the end of the year and rode it all the way. Remember, most teams hit rock bottom at one point in their season, but every rock bottom is different. Some are worse than others.

Take the Chicago Bears for example.  You can count on them hitting rock bottom when they decide to play Jay Cutler again.  Things will be ugly in Chicago, I guarantee it. Detroit? They’re about to hit rock bottom, I can feel it.  And the Vikings?  Well, they’ve been at the bottom for a while now.

I would argue rock bottom came for the Packers when they got their butts handed to them on Thanksgiving against Detroit. Others would argue that it came abruptly when Aaron Rodgers got hurt.  Nonetheless, it happens to all teams and it’s unavoidable. The positive of all this is that it seems the Packers have started to pull themselves out of their “rock bottom.”

Keep in mind, the Packers still haven’t played their best football, and I believe that is soon to come.  We have not peaked yet but it’s coming.  When it happens, teams had better watch it.

This season hasn’t been the easiest, but keep hanging in there, we are sure to see some fireworks.
