It’s playoff time and Pro Football Talk on NBCSN has you covered with all you need to know for Wild Card weekend.

Peter King will join the rest of the PFT crew for Friday’s preview of all four games this weekend. They’ll be talking injuries, cold weather and much more as they set the stage for the first round of this year’s playoff tournament.

There are 20 teams that have already had their Super Bowl dreams snuffed out and we haven’t forgotten about those teams. Conversation will start Friday about offseason priorities for the teams hoping to extend their seasons to a 17th game and beyond next season. Whether it is draft, free agency or schematic changes, we’ll be discussing them on Friday and in the weeks to come.

It all gets started at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

    Kaepernick grew up a Packer fan. I think you can make a pretty good argument the Packers should have drafted Kaepernick, let him learn from Rodgers and the coaching staff for one year, then traded Rodgers to the AFC. Aaron is amazing but the money saved and draft picks would have allowed the team to build a first class defense. As great as Rodgers is, he will probably not win another superbowl unless the defense gets a lot better. Trading a player of his stature is usually not done, but if a team like Washington gives up what it did for an unknown like RGIII, imagine the trade value of an Aaron Rodgers. Teams win championships and a rising Kaepernick on a re-stocked Greenbay team would be a hard team to beat.

    Who ever manages to hold onto the pumpkin the best will win in Green Bay. Then we can put the cold weather home field advantage question to rest. Are the Niners just tougher, or will the experience of hanging onto the ball with numb fingers make the crucial difference?

    I’ve heard some ridiculous ideas before, but this may be a game winner. You don’t trade the best QB on the planet, period, discussion over

    Besides the fact, Kapernick was a 3rd rounder out of Nevada, nobody, including the Niners, expected him to start off how he has. Even if someone lies and says they did, there is no way they can project him to have the body of success that Rodgers has already had

    Trade the best QB in the league in his prime……we’re playing madden!

    Got your facts all wrong. Kaepernick was a high second rounder. Yeah, people did expect him to be good.

    I wouldn’t say Rodgers is indisputably the “best” QB right now. He is in the conversation. There is a top level to which he belongs, but Manning, Brady, and Brees are definitely in that club too. But even a Brady has had to work miracles to get to where the Pats are this year. It is easier to win the superbowl with a very good QB and a killer team, than it is to win with a hall of fame QB and only a so-so team. The current Packers remind me of the latter years of Steve Young. Great QB and always in the post-season conversation, but ultimately not the winner.

    Trust me, Packers are not going to sniff another superbowl with that Dom Capers’ defense.

    Kaepernick is going to show everyone how tough he is by doing another naked photo shoot on the field before the game on Sunday.

    Hmmm, there must be a reason nobody does this. Were you around when the team had to deal with the Favre mess? There was a ton of anger against management. Imagine what the fan base would do if you traded arguably the best QB (certainly top 3) to save on the salary cap. When someone becomes the face of the franchise, they’re pretty much in place until age or injury (or both, see P. Manning) knocks them off the roster.

    Rodgers grew up a Niners’ fan; Romo a Packer fan. None of that matters in the NFL. Besides, Kap was a Niner fan, too.

    “In the fourth grade, he even penned a letter predicting that he would be the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. “I hope I go to a good college in football then go to the pros and play on the Niners or the Packers, even if they aren’t good in seven years,” he wrote.”

    The Niners and Seahawks are about to see what success does to the cost of a QB, and will be dealing with the type of salary cap challenges the Ravens, Pats, Pack and Saints have faced. We’ll see how many free agents they’ll be able to keep. Its a reality. The Pack D is nowhere near as strong as the 49ers and Hawks, but injuries have affected the play of that unit, too.

    I’m sure Sam Fran would be way happier of the home town guys played for the tema….IE Rodgers being from their back yard….Bet 49ers would have a couple rings by now

    ….this all makes sense because Kap has won how many Super Bowls?

    The packers should have drafted Russell Wilson, nick foles, Andrew luck and RG3. Then they could have traded for JJ watt, richard sherman, jamaal charles and calvin johnson plus 6 future 1st round picks.

    Then Lombardi would rise from the dead to coach with Ditka as his assistant to run off not 3, not 4, not 5, not 6 but 7 super bowl titles…sigh

    What are they putting I’m the cheese up there?
