In Green Bay's run through the NFC last year, they faced ZERO Super Bowl-winning QBs (Vick, Ryan and Cutler). Aside from piling up points on Atlanta, they played tight against Philly and Chicago. This year, they might have to face two Super Bowl QBs. Competition.. what a concept!
Green Bay has no monopoly to the Draft, nor FA, and aren't the only team with a "spread the ball around" offense. They have also botched drafts by taking bust (DT) Justin Harrell, reaching on Raji and Sherrod, etc. Because of moves like that, they don't have a competent DL. Even quotabacks like Newton and Freeman (plus Blount) were abusing Green Bay. Freeman -- who was mired in awful play -- had his "breakout game" against GB.
Their opponent on Sunday, NY, has a wide-open offense with Nicks, Cruz, Manningham and Ballard. They also have a much better DL. I can't come out and say that "Green Bay is the best run organization in the NFL." How long will it take GB to build a real DL?
Green Bay has home-field, and, I'm not saying that they can't make the SB this year, but that they might be tested even more this year. In the postseason, the regular-season records are erased and GB will be the hunted. If GB does go through this minefield and makes the SB, I'd most definitely give them the advantage over any AFC team in the SB.. and I wouldn't base it on Green Bay defeating Pittsburgh in last year's SB, but on this year's postseason.
--The Giants' aren't better than Atlanta by a "24-2 margin," but that was a nice tune-up game for NY. In the 2nd half, New York opened up their offense more, after playing the 1st half conservatively. This weekend, the Giants' will start out the game stronger.
