    One thing is for sure. After this season of the GB Packers winning the Super Bowl,,,NO one can EVER use injuries as an excuse on losing…NEVER EVER AGAIN 16 guys on the IR and you lose 2 starters for the 2nd 1/2 of the Super Bowl,,,and you win it,,,,it changes football reasoning forever…injuries are no longer to be mentioned…..Re Eagle fans take note

    So a team with a lot of injuries did well enough to win *one* particular game and now injuries don’t matter? That’s kind of a short sighted view. Obviously Green Bay is not only a team that has some real depth, but they also have players in key positions who are so good that they are able to make up for losing other players to injury.

    In other words, if some of the weaker teams in the league lost as many people as GB did, they’d have no chance against *anybody*, period.

    I don’t think it’s so much injuries, I think it’s that GB has a strong enough QB and a deep enough receiving corps and defense that they could still win any given game.

    (PS- not an Eagles fan, so don’t bother.)
