It was nice of ESPN to take five minutes this morning to talk about how Aaron Rogers will do in the playoffs.

F*** Erin Rodgers. Who does a commercial where their house is burning down and he just sits in the car like it's no big deal. "Oh well..  my million dollar house is on fire." Good thing I have All State for insurance. He's not even worried about his six cats inside. 

GO LIONS!!!

God no. It was nice to hear Dilfer, Woodson and Moss talk about how dangerous GB will be in the playoffs.

I really wish we were healthier. 

My faith level is low in general though. 

Ugh......

Don't have much if any confidence in the Lions winning this especially if Slay can't go.  Rodgers is peaking at the wrong time and I can't see the Lions putting up much resistance.  Stafford and the offense will have to score in bunches and I'm not sure they have that capability.

On another note, does anybody remember a final week with so many meaningless games?  Outside of the Redskins game and the battle for homefield positioning with the #1 seed in the AFC, the AFC West (which lost a lot of the drama with Carr gone) and #2 seed in the NFC, there's nothing else on the line.  Will make for a pretty boring wait until tonights' game.

CheeseHoles, the rematch. My sad predictions:

  • Ford Field will have an embarrassingly large number of Packer fans on national TV
  • 3 of Green Bay's 5 touchdowns will come from Nelson torching the secondary on post routes
  • Ebron will drop at least one critical pass right in his hands
  • Rodgers will have all day to pick his spots against the league's 29th-ranked pass rush
  • There will be plenty of PI and holding calls on the Lions because NFL's Golden Boy will whine and cry about it to the referees
  • Rodgers will continue his 2nd year of playing up a fake leg injury to the cameras in his quest to become a bigger diva than Farve
  • The national media will have already anointed the Packers NFCN champs before the game
  • With no Riddick, I expect to see: Lions run on 1st down no gain, run on 2nd down for 2 yards, 3rd down pass short of the sticks, punt....  at least 5 times
  • There will be 2 obviously bad calls against the Lions that help the Packers win. Caldwell shrugs his shoulders on both  ¯\_()_/¯
  • Roberts will do something boneheaded again (he's overdue)
  • Levy gets injured again (he's overdue)
  • Packers must reach the postseason. NFL will do what they can during the game to protect merchandise and TV revenues

Unfortunately I share most of these sentiments, here's hoping they prove us all wrong!

Giants up 10-0 on halftime and get the ball to start the 2nd half.   Come on Eli.

2016 started by breaking many curses in pro sports. Let's make 2017 a year of continuation. Superbowl or bust!

Josh Norman is not very smart. Playing for a playoff spot and acting like an ***. Drawing PF penalties.

I'm afraid of the Giants resting their starters in the 2nd half. 

Looks like we can kiss the #2 seed goodbye. Atlanta now rolling over New Orleans. Would still like the Seahawks to lose, unlikely I know. If the Lions do get #6, I'd rather they play in Atlanta than Seattle.

Assuming the Skins win, if the Lions and Packers are tied after 60, shouldn't they just play for the tie?
