7. What if the Packers hadn't taken a chance on Charles Woodson?
Believe it or not, signing Charles Woodson to a massive deal in free agency wasn't exactly a no-brainer at the time. Woodson was heading into his age-30 season after playing eight seasons in Oakland with the Raiders. He had only played six games in 2005 and he had missed 22 total games over the four seasons leading up to his signing with the Packers combined.
Woodson signed an incentive-laden deal with the Packers, a seven-year pact that was worth $52 million in total potential money. What a bargain that ended up being.
Woodson obviously was incredible in his seven seasons with the Packers, picking off 38 passes in the regular season with 10 defensive touchdowns and a Defensive MVP award in 2009. He helped the Packers win the Super Bowl in the 2010 season and turned out to be one of the great free agent signings in the history of the game.
6. What if the Packers didn't lose the 2014 NFC Championship?
Is this still too fresh of a wound?
The box score reads that the Seattle Seahawks won the 2014 NFC Championship game 28-22 in overtime, but the box score doesn't tell the haunting tale of what this game truly was. If you're a Packers fan, this game was an absolute nightmare. No one watching this game could believe what they were seeing, which was the Packers letting a 19-7 lead disappear with two minutes left in the fourth quarter. The Packers had a 16-0 lead at halftime of this game as well.
It's one of the most historic collapses in recent NFL playoff history. Had the Packers found a way to win this game, they would have faced off against Tom Brady and the Patriots in the Super Bowl. The Patriots would go on to beat Seattle in the Super Bowl, preventing the Seahawks from winning the game in back-to-back years.
But Aaron Rodgers getting a shot against Belichick? That would have really been something.
