In response to AyyyBoston's comment:
I forgot to add my pick. I really do think it is tough...I would say SF but I don't know about picking a QB with no playoff experience to go to the SB. I'm going to go with GB, because they are getting healthier and I think Rodgers will be hungry after last year's playoff disappointment.
That's a good pick. I can see them going in to Atlanta (if that happens) and giving them all they can handle.
I just think that SF might hold serve at home vs GB, with Washington heading to Atlanta in the divisonals.
Ya I just think the Packers as a whole will be pissed over the Seattle game screwing them out of a bye, their loss against Minny, and last years playoffs. They're getting healthier now and the emergence of Randall Cobb gives them another threat at WR. My biggest concern is their lack of a run game. This won't hurt them against Minny, Washington, or even Atlanta, but I think this could bite them against a top defense like SF or Seattle.
I would give Atlanta consideration but I want to see them win a playoff game first. I know every season is different, but their lack of past playoff success is holding me back on them.
As I already mentioned, I would pick SF, but Kapernick's lack of playoff experience scares me. Also, while Seattle is a very good team, I do not see them winning three straight on the road.
Just my 2 cents.
