  1. Yes, Jim Schwartz, there will be much more going on in that game.

    After all, it’s a game between two teams that won’t make the playoffs, filled with players that no other team would take.

    Yet – of the 32 team’s stories, you decide to comment on that one, you know, the one where the two teams stink.

    You are such a hater. I am curious to know who your God-favored team is big shot.

  3. TSB you are so hilarious. Didn’t GB get ruthlessly spanked in the divisonal round? Sounds like they have something to prove as well

    More likely to be a preview of the NFC Championship game.

  5. The Packers did get spanked.

    Am I denying it? Nope.

    Other things to consider:

    The niners played a super easy schedule last year. The lions always find ways to implode.

    The Packers are much better than both teams. Neither the niners or the lions will repeat last years success.

    Packers / pats super bowl. Don’t get your hopes up for anything else.
