Ill say this,NY scares me more then N.O. does.N.O. is lots of offense and not alot of defense and they are a dome team thats played a HUGE majority of their games inm controlled or warm weather.
SF,great Defense,decent offense playing at Lambeau in the cold,but, a running game is dangerous and great for cold weather..
BUT
NY has a great front 7 but can be thrown on but has the best pass rush as compared to the other 2 NFC teams left.
NY has a great qb and WR and a very good running game,again,great for cold weather and NY plays outside in the cold of NY so the cold at Lambeau wont effect them as much as N.O. or S.F.
No disrespect meant,but, IMHO NY is the scariest team left of the 3 NFC teams.

IF GB beats NY ( and that is or will be a tough task,they are playing their best ball right now at the perfect time)GB should be Super Bowl bound.SF will be tough and a running game to eat the clock but GB offense can score quick and match the lower point SF will score and N.O.,i have no confidence in N.O. outside in the cold..a dome team throwing in the cold usually wont match wits with a throwing team from the cold playing in the cold,again,nothing is 100%,thats why they play the game,but, i dont see N.O. beating GB in the cold weather,if its warmer,maybe,,snowy,icy,cold windy ect, i dont think it will happen,but, again,thats why they play the game.

Leave it to the Saints to take the weak route...the only tard who thought the Lions stood a chance regardless who they faced was Jim Schwartz...

The Lions will be back....young talented teams, rarely do well, their first year in the playoffs.....they are too talented, they just need more discipline and a #2 reciever......

I agree, the Giants can be dangerous. However, IMHO I think you aren't giving the 49er defense the credit they deserve. It's the 49ers that worry me most still, but the Giants have potential. In addition, that Giant defensive line may do some damage no matter the outcome of the game. The Packer offensive line will be challenged.

Same here, I don't believe any team can go to Lambeau and win, but the Saints are especially ill prepared to play well there. Oddly enough, if the 49ers travel to Green Bay, they will hope for cold windy conditions. Their defense won't need to take Rodgers out of the game if the weather can do it for them. I don't want the Packers to get into a battle of running games and defense against the 49ers. I do want the Packers to get into a scoring battle against ANY team.

Jason Pierre-Paul 100% Garuenteed a Giants win at Lambeau Sunday because they are better.
The one good thing is GB won the first visit and Chad clifton didnt play that game and hes healthy and ready to go for this one,so that will help protect Rodgers bigtime.A Healthy Chad Clifton should make a huge difference and with Brian Bulaga healthy ( assuming) and rested from not playing for a while,we should see a much better GB oline vs that tremendous NYG defensive line.GB are early 9 pt favorites,but, ill feel much better after the game is done and GB won it.Ryan Pickett being in there will help vs the NY running game as well ( although i beleive Pickett did play the last time they did, but im comparing the last few games as compared to what it will look like now that Pickett is back).

Sorry, GBPfan and other Packers supporters, but you are NO LONGER 'America's team.' That label should now go to the Giants, don't you agree? Eli Manning, the all-American kid, guiding the Blue to a rousing upset of Green Bay and then some. The New Yorkers could have piled it on after that last interception, but didn't, showing their class and their good sense since those things can come back and haunt you. In any case, Rodgers got rattled, but not as bad as your rankled receivers.

I welcome everybody that wants to claim the Packers, but until they do, the Packers are not their team.
The survey was 700 people! don't worry nobody wants GB, they wre booed in lambeau yesterday!!!

Tell you after the SB, weren't we discussing the Stealers being "Americas Team" a few years back???

Being "America's Team" should be independent of bandwagon fans, no?
