2009 NFL Wildcard Round Playoffs (Packers at Cardinals)- Open Thread

New, comments

The Packers dumped Brett Favre (who, at age 40, is still a top five QB) for Aaron Rodgers. The perception from management (aka, Ted Thompson) was that Favre was old and unable to win consistently enough for the Packers. In 2009, Favre signed with the Vikings and would go on to sweep the Pack and win the NFC North. Now, the Packers are on the road at Arizona playing the defending NFC Champion Cardinals.

The Packers are a fine team with an excellent defense, good wide receivers, and a strong running game. However, this is the kind of game Rodgers must thrive in. If not, Thompson and Pack management will look like fools.

This is your open thread for the game. Enjoy.
