As I said in the beginning, this is going to be a difficult task for the Packers for a large collection of reasons.
They’ll need to hit on basically every point I named to some decent extent. In my estimation, it’ll either take a fully mistake-free contest from the Green Bay or they’ll have to break the scoreboard with how many points they put up. Maybe they’ll need to do both; Seattle is really that good.
In all seriousness though, is this an actual possibility?
Sir Charles In Charge
Can Green Bay really go into Seattle, as such severe underdogs, in a place they’ve already lost by 20 points, when their quarterback can barely walk on the field, and steal a win?
Not in the least.
But there’s just something about this team that makes me feel like this isn’t over.
Maybe it’s the little naive child that first started being a Packers fans, believing they’d never lose. It could be all the love being thrown Seattle’s way, and how often I’ve witnessed teams get anointed before the game just to somehow lose and shock the world. Possibly it’s just that epic mystique that flows from Aaron Rodgers, always leaving some semblance of hope for a victory as long as you know that man is going to be leading your team.
Whatever the reason, I don’t think it matters in the end why my instincts are buzzing that way. What will matter is the end result on Sunday.
I can’t wait!
