If I had to choose one team in the NFC to lose too, it'd be none! Haha. In all honestly, either Vikings (my dad's team), or Packers. Always liked Rodgers, and had to fight even with Packer fans who were Favre devout saying they should keep him around, told them to give Aaron a chance.

I hate being right at my own expense. lol

Had we lost on Sunday, it would have been heartbreaking but at least it would have been to a team and a fan base I can respect.

I just can't imagine losing to the Patriots or the Jets. The thought makes me want to puke.
You know it's funny regarding the Patriots but your SB against them was the first SB I can really remember watching. I was 8 in Super Bowl XXX and at the time not much of a football fan so my first Super Bowl memory is of eating at Romano's Macaroni Grill with my family watching the Packers and Favre beat the Patriots. This was before the Patriots became the Pats we hate now of course. I mean I'm upset at the loss but you guys earned it for sure and I knew the Pack had the right idea going with Rodgers over Favre going forward. I really like watching the guy. Don't get too many Packers games here so I don't see him often but I like his game.

The Vikings...? Dear lord....

Nobody should worry about losing to the Vikings, they don't even play outdoors for God's sake!

Packers as Super Bowl champions is easier to handle than the Dallas Brokebacks reaching .500

Hey I agree, I said rip the roof off of the Metrodome.

Still, he's been a fan since the days of Tarketon, so I gotta give him his due.

I've wondered about that. Two of the teams in your division including you guys play outdoors but the VIkes and Lions do not. Every team in our division plays outdoors. Honestly even though it will never happen I'd love for there to be Super Bowl eitehr at Lambeau or Heinz Field someday. It won't happen because of business reasons but it would be football the way it was meant to be played.

And plenty of Bears fans have been supporters since the days of Halas, but that doesn't make it right.

Hey I don't ask why, lol. I BLEED Black and Gold, and I always will. I do have a soft spot for Rodgers though.

I'd rather have Ben, but I'm biased. I told my wife before the season started that conceptually Rodgers is the perfect QB. Arm, mobility, toughness, Captain leadership with Sergeant grit.

But I'd rather have Ben. :)

Football should be played outdoors, no exceptions. Packer fans loathe the Metrodome, we just can't respect a team that has to pump in crowd noise and that stupid viking horn all in heated comfort. Plus, we have a few bad memories there. Ford Field would be nice...if it were a baseball stadium.

The NFC North will always be about the Packers and the Bears. Old school teams that play outside in the cold and wind and snow and rain. Like the Steelers

The NFL will never allow a Lambeau SB, there's just not enough infrastructure (few hotels, restaurants, no clubs, small airport). I would imagine Pittsburgh (being much more similar to Milwaukee than Green Bay) could maybe pull it off. Either way, I agree that it would be great to see.

I picked the Packers to win the Super Bowl in August over the San Diego Chargers. Unfortunately, I was WRONG about the AFC team!

With that said, I watched the Packers this season and esp the playoffs rooting for them like I would Pittsburgh. I always thought Rodgers was an absolute STUD and love everything about him. He's going to be one great QB and he showed glimpse's of that in Super Bowl XLV. I think Pittsburgh dug themselves in big time, one they couldn't seem to get out of. I honestly think that if the Steelers and Packers would play 10 games, we would win 7 of them but we completley got outplayed by a team that was razor sharp.

If the Steelers were to lose the Super Bowl, and I'm on record for saying this, it would be the Green Bay Packers and no other. The only team I respect in the NFL is the Packers.
